With all of the anger and amazement last week with Facebook's announcement and implementation of changes in their timeline and read, watch, listen media sharing apps, something important got lost.
According to Read Write Web using these really cool read, watch, listen apps come with a bit of a privacy price. “With these apps you're automatically sending anything you read into your Facebook news feed. No "read" button. No clicking a "like" or "recommend" button. As soon as you click through to an article you are deemed to have "read" it and all of your Facebook friends and subscribers will hear about it. That could potentially cause you embarrassment and it will certainly add greatly to the noise of your Facebook experience.”
They go on to say “Facebook is attempting to create a newspaper-like experience on your Facebook homepage.”
These changes are gong to change your facebook experience. Do you really want to share everything with your friends, and see everything that your friends share?
