revolt against facebook

Facebook released several new features Tuesday, including something it calls "news feed," which appears on users' homepages and reports every move their friends make. It's not the information that's new, just how it's being presented. And apparently many of the 8 million-plus Facebook users don't like it. According to Al Tomkins, by 9:45 pm Wednesday night, 419,304 students had joined electronic protests against "news feed." Time tries to explain what everyone is so worked up about, with links to college newspaper coverage. And Forbes writes on the ramifications for Facebook advertizing.
