Re: knowing and forgetting
Yes, and being a company that is just basically a big web-site, they *defininitely* know this and so for them to assert otherwise is "barefaced lying because they think their target audience is stupid".
Their target audience, of course, is not the El Reg readership. It might, however, be a bunch of Congress-critters. Perhaps someone should have a word with them. Point out that FB have basically just called them a bunch of stupid fuckwits who can be lied to with impunity.
You never know, something might happen.
