Subject: You might want to fix this.
To: firstname.lastname@example.org, Sheryl Sandberg Team Facebook, Seems as if anyone can add anyone to a Facebook Group. There is no “opt in.” In this case someone added Mike Arrington and I to the “NABLA” group
on Facebook. I know I’m not a member of NAMBLA, and I’m going to guess
that Mike isn’t either.
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_162298770463078&ap=1 I’ve now been assigned to a group that advocates… well…. ummm….
you can look it up–it’s very bad. Also troubling: 1. I was never asked to join the NABLA group
2. I was never informed that I was “force-joined” to the NABLA group. If you guys want to run these new features by me before you launch
them, I can probably save you from a couple of privacy law suits each
year. 🙂 best regards, Jason ps – Nice job on the .ZIP export.
