Re: More intrusion?
What would Amazon want with FB? Amazon's ways of spying on us are far more reliable and expansive. Moreover, FB's forays into infrastructure and hardware still don't quite hold a candle to those of Amazon's.

WE can all worry when Amazon buys Facebook.  THEN the cat will indeed be out of the bag and in a box with that stupid smile on it.

More intrusion?
So FB wants to verify who you are, where you are, what you are buying, when you go to sleep?  What the heck?  If this is for on-line shopping, I can see it, for anything else it's a no go for me.

Boston
Good to know that FB is effectively expanding its footprint here in Boston. I wonder to what extent, if it all, this will impact Amazon's decision in the run-off for HQ2.

(Charitably assuming, of course, that Amazon has not already secretly made its decision and is simply using the 20-city list as a negotiating tactic.)
