Facebook, however, goes one step further. It allows people to inform a computer (and people) that several different photos of a person are indeed the same person, and link that person back to a profile containing information. Admittedly, you can control what information is in that profile, and also you can (allegedly) moderate what photos get tagged as being 'you' - but let's face it (sorry), that's kind of the main point of Facebook, to be able to tag photos for people, isn't it? And as for controlling the profile, I can't help but think that once the software has a really good idea who you are, and if people follow the 'get 2 facebooks, one for your online identity and one for your professional/real life identity' - it wouldn't take genius software to make the match and then the game is up.
What worries me is that Facebook is in a prime position to do the same as Gracenote once did with user-entered CDDB data and sell access to it to whomever wants to use it?
Thoughts? So am I just being uber-paranoid? Is it too late already, and I should just shrug my shoulders and get on with it?
