rickwebb: sciencevsromance: To clarify, I’m not particularly up in arms about the complexity of facebook’s “privacy” settings (I barely use it, it’s a free service aiming to make money, blah, blah, etc.), just meta-interested in the waves of outrage and public displays of cancellation threats. But more than any of that, I am pleased by the crop of quality infographics being devised to visually represent the nightmarish maze of options (currently 50 settings, 170 options) that stand in the way of a user’s option to control who sees their stuff when a sitewide “friends only” button could “solve” all of the network’s “problems”. Hahaha so true. I was also just thinking it’d be kind of awesome if there was a “I really don’t give a fuck, do whatever you want” button just so we could see how 99% of the people clicked it since most people really don’t care.
