Facebook: Corporate Thievery Based On Advertising

My Comment: I personally don't do Facebook. I do understand it's attraction and utility for others though. However, the above highlights the dark side of Facebook corporate greed. Its users need to realize that they share responsibility for participating in this outrageous and  scammy behavior that is not readily apparent to the uninitiated!
