Re: @beep54 So What?
You raise an interesting point. I'm somewhat interested in the idea of facebook killers, particularly because Facebook has a progressively intrusive form of trying to track non-facebook users. Sorry Zuck, but if I choose not to join your veal-fattening pen then you do not have the right to track me over the web.
Moreover, the idea that someone can operate without a facebook account seems akin to asserting that one doesn't venture on the web. The choice is: paedo or luddite. Pick one. Okaaaaaaaay.
The entire concept of social networks seems like such an utter bag of spanners that I'd rather sit this one out even if I do count myself as a well-wisher* to Ello / Diaspora et al.
* Well-wisher is the Moe Syzlak (sp?) version, in that I don't wish them any specific harm.
