    Subject: Facebook: tell Phorm to Eph Off and leave my Facebook data alone

    We're going to formally approach Facebook and other websites to block
    Phorm via the group "Facebook: tell Phorm to Eph Off and leave my
    Facebook data alone"

    To do this we need to get membership numbers of the group to 1,000+.

    We need to show that companies like Facebook must give the maximum
    practical protection to our personal data.

    So please join the group if you have not already - visit the group page
    and push the 'share' link - post the group's link to your news feed and
    profile and ask your friends to join!

  5. I thought Facebook's business model had a lot of similarities with
    Phorm's. They are both about targetting advertising based on gleaning
    information about your interests. As I understand it, in the facebook
    case, the premise is that your friends have similar interests to you, so
    by telling facebook about your purchases, you are telling them what your
    friends might want to purchase.

    Yup. Facebook and privacy are oxymora surely?

    In that case, surely it would be silly of Facebook to not prevent third
    parties like phorm from cashing in on all the valuable data they've
    collected instead of them!
