Facebook built a business model on the old adage that "no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people" and the American people handsomely rewarded Facebook's faith in them.
And now, the American public, having been taken for the suckers they are, are mad at Facebook, instead of being mad at themselves for falling for it.
{sarcasm}Clearly the solution lies in an external force (gov't? industry standards? internet censors?) protecting the American public from their own idiocy instead of the American public putting in the intellectually-focused brain-sweat to make themselves smarter and less susceptible to emotional appeals to their basest instincts {/sarcasm}

I always wonder how people think a company can run a service like this for free.  Do they think some billionaire philanthropist is doing it out of pure generosity and making nothing off it?  Obviously they're going to resell user data, it's the only way they can possibly make a profit.
