Or he knows its a no win situation either way.
Facebook is a no win situation all on it's own -- I don't know what's worse actually -- The constant spamvertising or that clunky whack-a-mole code they're trying to pass off as a social network or maybe that constant nag-bot wanting me to spend 5 bucks so my ad can be shown to 3,000 irrelevant people on the other side of the world.
Facebook still runs on the old m. domain for mobile if any of you are wondering how far behind the times it really is - Facebook is second only to vistaprint's site builder writes of 1999.
From this point moving forward, Facebook's in the big money grab territory - Grab it and go, because surely we (Facebook) can't be bothered to reinvest in even our own code, much less in trying to repair any privacy violations ...
It's a mess, and I don't think even Facebook's top engineers can handle it all. These past 18 months have been a real roller coaster ride.
I've got friends with the Facebook App on their phones, and I get to sit back and watch all of the garbage trickle down from their phones via my Facebook PM's from Apps I've never heard of before and the friend that has the phone has no idea it's even going on ---
As soon as you let an App ... any App ... have access to your contacts on your phone, all bets related to security and privacy are off.
At this stage of the Facebook game, even MySpace is starting to look good again - and that's pretty sad.
