Fri, Apr 30th, 2010 12:00 by capnasty NEWS

Since its incorporation just over five years ago, Facebook has undergone a remarkable transformation. When it started, it was a private space for communication with a group of your choice. Soon, it transformed into a platform where much of your information is public by default. Today, it has become a platform where you have no choice but to make certain information public, and this public information may be shared by Facebook with its partner websites and used to target ads. Here are some excerpts from Facebook's privacy policies over the years. Watch closely as your privacy disappears, one small change at a time.
