Can we please tell us what the approved age range is to be considered "middle-aged"? 66 seems a bit outside the boundaries to me.
So Google, when exactly will we be getting Profile support for Google Apps domains?
Unfortunately you need to bear in mind that the majority of Facebooks users are not "tech savvy" and will have no idea what information it is sharing/collecting, and i suspect most of them won't even care.
