A proposed bill in California would make social network settings private by default and give more control to parents.
...Facebook hasn’t kept tight lipped. It is now leading a squad of 17 companies and trade groups including Google, the Internet Alliance, Match.com, Skype, Twitter, Yahoo and Zynga, to try to shoot the bill down.
What business is this of the government? Don't parents already have control? Aren't they capable of saying "No!" to their brats? Why is it the responsibility of Facebook or any other company to police everything?
And if you're really concerned about your privacy, why are you revealing so much of your real life on the Internet in the first place, fool?
