the CIA should be about raw intelligence.

now more people are finding out the CIA association with facebook; this will make their job harder, and degrade the intel they DO gather.

Therefore, facebook is a DEPRECIATING ASSET.

Because more people will be on their guard, deceptive, giving false info, or will leave FB altogether.

Not financial advice, but if I were the CIA i'd dump the FB shares and go back to formula..

The public is too sophisticated now. You cannot let people find out your affiliations.

Too late, FB has been evil for a while now. They take all the info you stupid enough to give them and sell it to anyone that will pay the price. Ther can be no expectation of privacy once you give your info to Face Book.

Lot's of FaceBook members post pictures and descriptions of people who are non-members. I'm sure these people do not realise that their identities are publicly available on the internet. In effect, they become pseudo-members - without ever knowing about it. FaceBook knows at least something about almost everybody.

Facebook is a government operation.
They were doing this before anyway.....now they don't have to pay the company royalties / licensing....they own it.

This is no surprise....they've been doing this for quite a while. They practically force you to "tag" your friends and family in photos before you post them. And when you don't...they keep reminding you that you didn't. I suspected that's what they were really doing.

Even if you don't tag photo's, someone else might. I expect lots of people would be horrified to learn that they "exist" within FaceBook - without ever signing up. Which friend, or family member is "privately" (or publicly) discussing the minutia of your private life?
