    That NYTimes article makes it sound like they are 'surprised' by any backlash and can't comprehend why anyone would want to opt out of this? I don't know if this is shortsightedness, horrible planning, or the interviewee is totally flabbergasted by the direction that interview took. Why do you do an interview when all you can say is.. I don't know, we havn't designed it yet, we know you can do it eventually but not now...

    Oh my.

    Oh come on... the writer is missing option X) The public backlash is occurring, but facebook is manipulating the results.

    Its a database, its incredibly easy to eliminate entries. Not to mention that's how you manipulate the sheeple. "Everyone likes it, see this feedback form that says so? You are being different by not liking it." (And as everyone knows big media/advertising has taught you, DIFFERENT IS BAD!!!)

    Of course, I agree, the NYTimes writer is probably one of the "sheeple" also, (with lots of FB fans?), and we all know that many people exhibit little more
    than "Brown's Cows" behaviour, and usually avoid true individuality, and harbour the fear of being seen as "different".
