Is Facebook selling user profiles?

February 17th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

It was shocking(wasn’t this expected??) to read the eMarketers article about the social network would start selling user data to market researchers this spring. Although Facebook’s spokesman quickly called it rumor and kept a good public face but seriously wasnt this unevitable? Just look at the growth of the network ~500k user per day? this is insane. I have to agree Facebook is great for target marketing especially pulling real time demographics to make sure your ad/marketing campaing gets the bang for the buck.
I really hope FB keeps the good faith and stay away from the evil acts of “Marketing” for a easy buck. If you want to share your comment feel free to share it here or in my blog entry on Internet Evolution.
