Re: Unwilling Target
Well, look forward to more of it. The Twitter IPO docs say they will roll out more "targeted" ads in your Twitter stream.

Re: Unwilling Target
I like using Facebook, but like Sarah, I'm increasingly annoyed by the ads and by the fact anything I look at online immediately shows up as ads on Facebook. Never help your adjult kid search for car insurance online -- right now I'd like to slap a certain gecko silly.

And, as Sarah said, an SSO is ideal, but using Facebook requires you to surrender access to your friends and your profile info, which I don't like. It's tempting to set up a second Facebook account, tied to a second gmail account to handle all the annoying stuff, but that's hardly an SSO. 

The security issues raised below are very real and make me even more unwilling to be sharing information via Facebook over a WiFi connection.

Re: The network encryption issue
Interesting, I'll be sure to ask them about that.

The network encryption issue
If Cisco does indeed collate location data from the macro networks, small cells and WiFi access points, they will need to ensure the safety of this information. As most people know, cybersecurity is a growing concern. Small Cells, in particular, are vulnerable to security threats because they are often physically accessible to hackers. Operators worldwide have turned to IPsec to secure backhaul in their next-generation networks, but implementing IPsec for end-to-end security can be costly. If Cisco wants to secure the user data it is likely to collect, while also conserving expenses, they will need a complement or outright alternative to IPsec. Layer-2 encryption, or MACsec, can fulfill this need. To utilize Layer-2, Cisco will need a low-cost, scalable security encryption technology that enables MACsec across the entire network, and thus keeps users' private information from falling into the wrong hands.

Re: Unwilling Target
True enough. But privacy was long dead before this happened anyway. You should probably be at least as concerned about how accurately your movements will soon be tracked in the car park or shopping mall.

Re: Unwilling Target
Well Dan that's getting harder and harder to do (avoid FB).  I may eventually need a FB account to be able to log into WiFi or websites.  A 'one login' world is coming but that also means an end to privacy.

Re: Unwilling Target
I guess you could opt out by not using facebook, twitter or whatever.

Re: Unwilling Target
Hey, I don't want to be a "product!"  How much do I need to pay to opt-out?  Can I  join an anti-social media site or does that automatically put me on a No Fly list at the FAA?

Re: Unwilling Target
Did anyone catch Parks & Recreation last night?! It had a lot of great stuff related to the privacy debate...and social media. Ron Swanson is even more privacy sensitive than you, Carol.
