The latest uproar involves Facebook’s move to include “sponsored stories” in the home page Ticker. The Ticker, which I still don’t have, is made to quickly deal with all of the boring notifications generated by your friends when they do something:
Susan bought a duck in Farmville. Grant listened to “Don’t Stop Believing.” Natalie commented on “Cute Puppy Plays with Baby” video.
Now, in addition to those updates, you’ll see things like Andrew, Carl and Corky like Triscuts – Sponsored.
In other words, more information that you could live without.
