A NEW FACEBOOK CONTROVERSY has developed, this time over photos of women breastfeeding their babies.
But Facebook is standing firm.
The protesters have also formed a Facebook group, of course, Hey Facebook, Breastfeeding Is Not Obscene.
It's not the first controversy at the social networking site and this blog
documents activities, rumors and news about Facebook.
The site was criticized after one moron posted photos showing himself costumed as a Virginia Tech shooting victim
Privacy and user data are always issues at the site. There was the Facebook Beacon program, that tracked users' activities on the Web
to a much greater extent than originally anticipated. And for students, there's the matter of parents using Facebook
, driving their children crazy. For the love of god -- don't let parents join Facebook
has more than 6,400 members, mostly teenagers embarrassed or angry that their parents use the site, fearing a loss of privacy. But not everyone has the same complaint; this blogger was happy to find his grandfather on the site.
And now Facebook itself is battling site aggregator Power.com
in an effort to control access to user information.
