Why Facebook etc., will win...

Actually, have already won.

I was discussing the latest revelations with a group of friends. One friend was cynical about the whole business claiming that Facebook was "harmless and fun". I asked to see her phone so I could go through her messages and photos so that I could "identify products and services of interest".

"No!" she said, moving the phone away from me. "That's private!"
