The photo that ticked off Randi Zuckerberg.   (The Internet)

(Newser) – Guys, if you hadn't heard, something just horrible happened on the Internet! You see, Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Mark Zuckerberg, posted a photo to Facebook, and a friend of a friend reposted it on Twitter without asking! That, Randi said, was so "uncool" that it was a matter of "human decency." Yes, really. "Because this dumb issue about her dumb photograph is that important," snarks Dan Lyons at ReadWrite Social. Now, Randi isn't Mark, but she's sure benefited tremendously from Facebook. A company that has:

  • Generated billions by using people's personal information to sell ads.
  • Has a privacy policy that has gone from one-line long to longer than the US Constitution.
  • Has secretly tracked users while they weren't on Facebook, then lied about it.
  • Recently announced an experiment to let people pay money to send messages to your inbox.
Lyons lists other complaints, but you get the idea. So yes, Randi Zuckerberg's privacy has been violated. Oh the humanity! Oh the human decency! "What kind of world are we living in when just because you post something on a website, someone else can just take your stuff and do things with it?" Lyons asks. "Oh wait." Read the full post here.

'Can a man take fire into his bosom and not be burned' ? I am daily amazed how 'Facebook' has infiltrated everything on the Internet. Why? are people so lonely they can't be alone, that they must follow, or rather not be 'twits'. When would I ever want to go to a website without having to go through the ever present 'Facebook'? Can anyone answer?
