A gaggle of Google engineers have expressed their displeasure with Facebook's latest effort to share your data with third-party sites, and many have gone so far as to deactivate their accounts.
This includes the Delphic Oracle of the SEO world, Matt Cutts, who announced his Facebook deactivation with a post to Twitter. Cutts didn't say why he deactivated, but the move came just hours after Facebook introduced an "instant personalization" thingy that automatically feeds your Facebook profile data to certain third-party sites when you - or your Facebook "friends" - pay a visit.
The Street View service is under fire in Germany for scanning private WLAN networks, and recording users' unique Mac (Media Access Control) addresses, as the car trundles along.
Germany's Federal Commissioner for Data Protection Peter Schaar says he's "horrified" by the discovery.

old girlfriends popping up
I recently learned: NONE of the friends of my wife got their real profile on FB - they work with fake names, enter different cities.
. Get on FB and learn how to use it...It will fundamentally change the web.
Those people who refuse to use FB remind me of people in the mid-90s who refused to use computers or email.
So, when are FB going to launch their own search engine?
Need sincere advice!
I have some 400-500 friends on FB. For all of the ones who I know personally (offline, etc.), their information is correct.
. And like anything on the internet, anything that you publish can be retrieved and stored until the person who holds it decides to play that card.
