Facebook Privacy Primer

À la my recent post, Randall Stross at the NYT explores the evolving landscape of user attitudes to internet privacy. Money quote:

When the distinction blurs between one’s few close friends and the many who are not, it seems pointless to distinguish between private and public.

How will laxer attitudes to privacy impact political participation? I can imagine political hack work dredging up embarrassing Facebook material or damaging associations. But I can also imagine people more open about their politics and causes and in a sense more open to discuss and defend their ideas in an exposed public forum, be it on Facebook or not.
