I think I know why there isn't much advertisement for it, Google Buzz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia -- if you look under legal issues in that link it shows why, well part of it. Seems like they're trying to run before they learn how to walk to catch up with the other social network sites. Keeping things hush-hush till they reinvent it -- which I'm sure they will, fabulously like their browser.

Facebook is web 1.0 tech masquerading as the future. Sean Parker is the real reason people have heard of FB, and even he acknowledged Myspace or Friendster should have won. They didn’t because they were poorly managed.

FB is hot because of a movie and a potential IPO. So it will get some cash. Then what? Is it showing Google-esque foresight to look 5-10 years down the road? Nope. It’s still operating under the model that people will sit down at a computer to search the internet and read newsfeeds of bored friends.

The future of search is real-time, individualized, predictive, and mobile. Most of it will likely be done in an automated car or a heads-up display. Google is literally sprinting to that future. Other companies are either oblivious or playing catch up.

Facebook is for bored tweens and receptionists. If it doesn’t partner with some other dead-mule technology, then it will eventually be bought out.

Neither of them have to do anything other than make the service available and sit back, the people post and publish all of their personal private life details themselves. In a few years, all of this crap that teenagers have been posting on Facebook and elsewhere is going to start resurfacing and biting them in the rear. The "not so innocent" pictures girls post of themselves, the stupid things guys did while drinking on spring break, the silly drama, threatening each other etc. Some of them will run for public office or apply for a high profile job or just simply tick off the wrong person and BAM here comes this ten year old junk from Facebook.

Don't think for a minute that Facebook isn't saving every single thing you post even if you delete it, so they can sell it to the highest bidder (CNN, TMZ, etc.) later on if the opportunity presents itself.
Ha - nerver crossed my mind but your story is so true
my goodness these people are going to regret this so much.

not like they can go to cyberspace and delete the images once they are out there its out there forever, unless the rapture comes tomorrow
then who cares
