Facebook Jawdrop

You’re probably aware that if you “like” a company or product page on Facebook, it’s possible that your name and photograph could appear in online ads for those products or companies. If you didn’t know, you might want to be careful about what you click the Like button on, as there’s no way of opting out of what FB likes to call a Sponsored Story. If you wouldn’t want your friends to know too much about your taste in music or edible underwear, Facebook may not be your Friend…

If you want to see some of that potential embarrassment paid back, however, Graham Cluley has put up an edited version of an interview in which Facebook VP Elliot Shrage is put on the spot by the BBC’s Emily Maitlis.
