I don’t remember ever granting permission to Facebook regarding this. I suggest everyone head in to check their Facebook advertising settings again: your privacy may be breached. Again. As expected, by a company as callous as Facebook.
Back in July, I expected that when I set the ﬁeld ‘Appearance in Facebook ads’ to ‘No one’ on this page, it would be a blanket block for all appearances of my name or face in Facebook advertising.
I did not expect Facebook to invent a new ﬁeld and ﬁnd a new way to use my private information without my permission.
Facebook: ‘No one’ means no one. It does not mean ‘No one until we think of a new field that you haven’t ﬁlled out yet, and we change it to something else.’
I think we all know that the minute someone creates a better network, it’s goodbye, Facebook.
I’d love to see you pin this one on your developers this time. Posted by Jack Yan, 05:44

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
