Facebook plans (according to their filing) to charge advertisers USD $120.00 PER USER for YOUR personal information. The high price is apparently part of the "like" effect in which when you click 'like' you are advertising to your group of family/friends on the advertisers behalf.
BEFORE the ipo - they were charging just $4.50, the level of exploitation will apparently increase dramatically to keep up with Wall st demand.
Facebook users are about to become billboards
In the first line of a 2,000 word letter from Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder announces the following: "Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission — to make the world more open and connected."
Facebook didn't need the money so Mr Zuckerberg's comment is essentially false, the plan seems to stay in the limelight and be talked about a la 'look at me, look at me'. I'm now happy I closed my account a year ago, the absurd has become more so and my privacy (and that of my friends/family) is worth more to me than $120.
