So, advertising. It's funny how people get so bent out of shape about it on LJ (though, admittedly the ads are annoying), but don't seem to notice how much they've given away on FB to the same people. And, if it wasn't already bad enough, apparently FB is running a test for a live, as-you-type target marketing engine. Instead of just swallowing your wall, your profile, the contents of every photo you publish and link you share, FB chat will start reading every word you type in conversations and using it to try to shoot effective advertising at you.

LOL, privacy. Who needs it? :P
