All of this comes up because Facebook has done three things that are at once extremely innovative, extremely rude, extremely helpful, and extremely disconcerting:

1. They are collecting and republishing user data on a level not before seen by users.

2. They are allowing advertisers to use this data to reach these users.

3. They are not giving this information--information that has put their value at $15 billion--back to their users.
I don't have a Facebook, but that's wrong. I see somebody suing them in the near future.

I'm an avid Facebook user, but it doesn't bother me at all really. They provide an outstanding service for free that has kept me and several hundred friends in touch. They can send me targeted ads, and sell my data without dumping it for me - I don't even want it.
