Naughty, naughty social network!

People are afraid of change. Most of them. And when it comes to privacy, they might get a little upset. Or even a little more. Maybe you are using Facebook too (chances are, you do). Maybe you've already heard about f8. If not:
The bigger announcement was what Facebook calls the "Open Graph," and how Facebook plans to connect disparate corners of the Web that other social sites are building. "Yelp is mapping out the part of the graph that relates to small businesses. Pandora is mapping out the part of the graph that relates to music," Zuckerberg said. "If we can take these separate maps of the graph and pull them all together, then we can create a Web that's smarter, more social, more personalized, and more semantically aware."
"These connections aren't just happening on Facebook, they're happening all over the Web, and today with the Open Graph we're bringing all these things together,"
"We're going to connect all of those different graphs together to form the Open Graph, and when we connect all of those graphs together, the Web is going to get a whole lot better"

"This is a really significant step for Facebook. For years we've been saying that FB is an open platform, but now for the first time, the likes and interests of my Facebook profile link to places that are not Facebook.com...My identity is not just definied by things on Facebook, it's defined by things all over the Web."
Zuckerberg came back onstage to conclude the big announcement. "We expect that in the first 24 hours alone we're going to serve one billion 'like' buttons on the Web"


Now, the reactions:
*The petition
*How to turn off the Instant Personalization
*An interesting timeline on how FB's privacy policy evolved (from 2005 to present)
