Dude. *Everyone* is freaking about about Facebook. Seriously. I mean, the NY Times is publishing multiple stories and info-graphics about it. People are attempting to delete their profiles. It’s crazy!
And while all this talk has caused me to question my participation in the social networking giant, there are two things I want to talk about – the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and how Facebook has impacted activism.
The recent privacy changes at Facebook have inspired an unusually high volume of really great reporting on the subject:
- Wired: Facebook’s Gone Rogue (love this one)
- Yahoo: 7 Things to Stop Doing on Facebook
- NY Times: Facebook Privacy: A Bewildering Tangle of Options
- Matt McKeon: The Evolution of Privacy on Facebook
I was excited to get the announcement recently that Jessica Mills has published a book on punk parenting, called My Mother Wears Combat Boots.
Jessica published a 3-part story in the first few issues of Clamor about her baby-making, “Oh Baby! Reflections on a first pregnancy.” She was one of those people that trusted Clamor early on, and I appreciate that.
Congratulations Jessica! I’m looking forward to reading it, though I suppose I am not planning on having babies myself anytime soon.
