An article about the scope of Facebook's data collection[0] speaks for itself; this really does not come as a surprise, but is nonetheless unsettling.

Encourage your friends, colleagues and acquaintances to use services like Diaspora[1] that are respectful of your data instead. Better yet: explain to those individuals the problems of social media services and ask that they respectfully leave you out of it.
