Facebook’s Beacon Advertising scheme is even more creepy than I envisioned.
Advertising By Stalking! In the new world of Social Gillnetting, you are not only exposed to a bunch of folks whose primary goal in life is to get 5000 friends faster than Scoble, but your online shopping is now a matter of public record.
Hey Look! Bill just bought a Father Sebastian 14” butt plug!!
The fact that Facebook is stalking your every move, slicing and dicing every click and letter you post, and selling you to every advertiser and marketeer with a checkbook, is your just desserts for not reading the fucking manual. The cost of participation on the web is so close to zero, that joining these sharecropper networks is a sign that you are just plain boring. Hell they give away blogs. You can be your own beacon.
Electronic Serial Rape
No does not mean No in the brave new world of electronic advertising.
You really want it, you were just fooling when you tried to say no. You were asking for it, or you wouldn’t be strutting around here. Sound familiar? Since you did it for one, you are going to do it for everybody else.
Privacy and Social Networking is an oxymoron. What part of the web being accessible to everybody with a connection did you miss?
Does your ass hurt yet? It will.
