Mark Zuckerberg is TIME Magazine's Person of the Year? Where's the "dislike" button?
Unfortunately, the terms under which he claims to have done this set a terrible precedent for our future — for our control over the software we use to interact with each other, for control over our data, and for our privacy. The damage is not limited to Facebook users. Because so many sites — including TIME — use Facebook's user-tracking "Like" button, Zuckerberg is able to collect information about people who aren't even users of his site. These are precedents which hurt our ability to freely connect with each other. He has created a network that is first and foremost a gold mine for government surveillance and advertisers.
Put our dislike button and other anti-Facebook messages on your own site.
Our button, of course, is not linked to any surveillance database or tracking system.
