and several more posts about how downsizer.net has improved people lives

It is a reminder that whilst forums have taken a hit due to facebook, they do represent people forming distinct communities that can become very real life changing communities.

While I think that is true I do think there will be a resurgence in forums, especially as they become more iphone/mobile/etc friendly.  Facebook is VERY intrusive, of course people say well what do you care so long as you are doing nothing wrong? And the reply is well I'm doing nothing wrong in my living room either but I wouldn't want a cctv camera in there.

Since the ticker tape on Facebook, where you get to see everything your friends do, Facebook has gone beyone intrusive for me. It's a nosey parker/stalker's dream come true. I spent quite a lot of time on there but have had enough and de-activated my account 2 weeks ago. I would like to have deleted it totally but there isn't that option.

Agreed, they and google for that matter have a voracious and frankly criminal desire for you personal data.
Google have been done for wireless network snooping, and facebook thinks nothing of running advertising done by scammers  

This is the level of behaviour of two immensely rich companies, here we have to deal with some commercial realities but have never and would never stoop anywhere near as low.
