I understand the reason behind why they listed their failures but does it really matter...for instance

"Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg just emerged from a big privacy kerfuffle unscathed. Fine this time, but what happens next time? Because there will be a next time. Facebook has pushed its users to share more and more over time. At some point this has to hurt it, right?"

Im pretty sure there are more facebook users than there were before this was printed in the newspapers and posted all over the web a month ago. So at some point this has to hurt right? When?

Even if the companies are failing at something, their failures are still advertisements for them.



"Yahoo is spending millions on pitching itself to the public with the "It's Y!ou" ad campaign. So far it's had little effect[LEFT]

Heh never heard of its you. I guess they nailed that one from where im sitting.

Somebody should put a gun to M. Zuckerberg's head, make him donate all his $$ to UNICEF then pull the trigger...

It is still beyond me how douche-bags like that guy end up billionaires doing unethical if not illegal stuff like trading private information like it is a joke. He has others create the product then tricked them out of the deal...it is like Bill Gates - Microsoft story all over again.

I am glad I am not a victim to any of those so-called social networking sites.
