“Social networking site Facebook has been on the defensive lately for a variety of poor privacy and dislosure related decisions about its Beacon application. Beacon, which is turned on by default for Facebook users, allows users to update their Facebook news feed with information about recent purchases and other activities on third party web sites, such as Blockbuster.com, Overstock.com, and Epicurious.com.”
