This was something I warned about at around the time some of Charlene's colleagues were blithely bigging up what a great advertising platform Facebook is morphing into. So why are people surprised this is happening? What else did anyone expect?

I read your post and agree with everything you said. While this hasn't yet happened to me (and so i can't send you screenshots), the implications of Beacon are a little frightening. And, i think i need to explain here, i am not overly paranoid, but i am cautious. i do not list "interests" in facebook and i try to leave minimal information so that my actual friends can find me. beacon is a farse disguised in the form of word-of-mouth advertising, because true word-of-mouth is based on an evaluation of a product through usage. Beacon cites the products that have been bought, but there cannot be a recommendation without actually experiencing whether we like or dislike the product. i don't want me purchases displayed for everything to see and apparently, the opt-out function has been getting missed by a lot of people.

I don't have a problem businesses using private data for providing convenience to their customers (e.g. Amazon uses my buying pattern to suggest stuff I may be interested in) but tracking online usage from site to site and announcing that to your my entire social graphs is unacceptable.

So if total software sales for the month were $697 million, then this indicates that nearly 10 percent of the entire dollar sales for the month
