Think Nobody's Reading Your Facebook Status Updates? Think Again.

Nothing like reading an article like this one to make you realize that Big Brother is, indeed, watching your every move online.

News correspondent Olivier Knox was researching a piece about the economic rescue package and paused to update his status on Facebook: "Olivier just counted, and President Bush has pushed the bailout in 12 of the past 13 days." Apparently Mr. Knox has "friends" in high places; deputy White House press secretary Scott Stanzel among them; Stanzel noticed the comment and left a (tongue apparently in cheek) comment on Knox's personal page, taking him to task for his use of the word "bailout."

Like I blogged before: it's getting awful crowded on Facebook. And that cleanup crew application that I fantasized about? Stay tuned for a post about that, because it apparently does exist.
