A good post, by synch and by you. It is what posting here was once all about here, in fact.

Nobody I'm sure wants to wag fingers or relive old battles. As you likely know, Facebook works best for old friends. If you're a contributor to FB, you can control your own content and your personal interactions a lot more than you can here, and that is the optimal environment for posts like synch's now.

Somebody said something recently about inventing Facebook. Here, way before Facebook, the natural arc, the natural demand of the clients, was towards more truthful public identity and more individualized control of interaction. But it didn't work out that way, and the people who wanted to disclose more went to sites where they could control their interactions better.

As is said in the film, anybody who would have invented FB should have just gone ahead and invented FB. IMHO, it didn't need no Ivy League primogeniture. It could have been invented right here, fwiw.

best to you,
