Shaping Youth

Found this great link from Download Squad for Firefox users who want to block the entire Facebook 'beacon' to deter info sharing. I'm going to post it for Shaping Youth readers soon, since we tend to be a bit creeped out by usurping privacy...at least I do, anyway ;-)

Beth, I agree with you here completely, and this is one of the reasons I hesitate with using Facebook.

On the flip side, they provide a lot of technology for free to their users, so why shouldn't they leverage what they have in an advertising way.

By the way, have you ever read the fine-print we all accept regarding how much Facebook owns when we upload or post things to it? Facebook owns a lot more of our information than it seems at first!
