I "Like" it

I just read Mat Honan's article about liking everything he saw on facebook for a couple of days (h/t Marco, and it confirms a lot of awful things I'd suspected. In particular, it's very easy to stop seeing human beings.

At the end of it, though, is the kicker:
By liking everything, I turned Facebook into a place where there was nothing I liked.

It sounds like Facebook has decided that its customers are its advertisers, not its users. Perhaps not a surprise, but not something of which I want any part. It might take an act of Congress to get me to create an account now. Yuck.
