the thing about facebook, aside from having no via business model and being run by a bunch of kids fresh out of undergrad, there is nothing stopping anyone from setting up a page and assuming the identity of basically anyone and destroying his reputation. perhaps this was the original motivation for creating this social networking site. which has happened with the queen of the titantic, kate winslet. but it’s definitely one of the multiple reasons why facebook genuinely sucks ass.
it is amazing how many people willingly upload images of themselves and their family –let alone the family dog and believe that their pages are ‘private.’
