Facebook is not free. Even if its staff were able to do their duties out of the goodness of their hearts, bandwidth and other site-related expenses must still be paid.

Thus, like so many other "free" services, Facebook must base its business model at least in part on data gathering. The service is only the bait. We ourselves are but eyeballs who have taken the hook, collected and sorted for advertisers to use.

In our modern monetary economic structure, there are but two choices. If privacy is the issue, we must be prepared to pay for the privilege.
