While I was busy conferencing, a few blogworthy items have come in over the virtual transom. Time to play catch up.
- Robert Scoble on Facebook’s mishandling the PR damage control. “Facebook’s PR machinery is hiding its head in the sand and hoping this story goes away,” he writes. And: “ANYTHING would be better than the way that Facebook is handling this.”
- Overstock and other advertisers are bailing from Beacon, via TechCrunch.
- Fast Company Now asks: Is Facebook playing Big Brother?
- Privacy in the Age of User-Generated Content. Via Mashable.
All of this Facebook stuff (and the “All your face…” reference) was brought to my attention by Nathan, a recent UMR grad who still sends me blogworthy items via email. Thanks, Nathan.
There’s more stuff from the past few days in my shared RSS items.
