Code Technology now on Facebook…

I have blogged and tweeted many times about Facebook’s deceptive privacy policy and ‘promiscuous’  identity information sharing practices.  The company has a track record of misleading its users about what personal information will be shared with advertisers and other users.  And personal profile details are being shared even wider (source: Matt McKeon), with an increased emphasis on pushing personal information out to the Internet.

I don’t like Facebook because Facebook have  not shown themselves to be trustworthy. So I have never setup a Facebook account.  I’m not among their 500+ million users.

But I recently figured out that you can have a company presence without the need to have a personal account.  So today I decided to setup a company page. My reason for doing so is simple: Facebook as a platform is rather important.  Without a page on Facebook, Code Technology is less visible to many hundreds of millions of people.  In fact, without a page, my business is invisible to those people who think Facebook IS the Internet.

On Code Technology’s Facebook page there will be links to this blog, an occasional update, identity management-relate pictures perhaps and possibly a video post.  What I won’t share is any personal info — the company hasn’t earned my trust (and likely never will).

Please visit the Code Technology Facebook Page and let me know what you think.  A ‘like’ won’t hurt…  🙂

thx, Mike
