Slap in the Facebook: It's Time for Social Networks to Open Up

Scott Gilbertson, Wired, Aug 09, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Here's the big problem with Facebook: "When entering data into Facebook, you're sending it on a one-way trip. Want to show somebody a video or a picture you posted to your profile? Unless they also have an account, they can't see it. Your pictures, videos and everything else is stranded in a walled garden, cut off from the rest of the web." Gilbertson also follows up with clarifications in Monkey Bites. I am also unhappy with Facebook applications sending questions to all of my friends - questions I did not ask.
