Still, "It's a given that these tweaks won't satisfy every unhappy camper," writes PCWorld. "For example, it sounds like Facebook will still share your info via Instant Personalization by default; if this bothers you, you've
got to proactively tell it to knock it off."
Of particular note, influential blogger Robert Scoble remains in the unhappy camp. "I'm still don't [sic] trust Facebook enough to
move my business into it," he writes. "Will I ever? Yes, probably ... But it will take time for me, and you, to trust this company beyond just playing games or poking our friends."
Gartner analyst Ray Valdes tells Reuters that the new policies should help make users concerned about privacy feel more
secure. Yet, "There are other voices that will continue -- governments, public sector and privacy advocates ... The fundamental issues won't go away .... They will reappear over time .... Again and
Even more ominously, TechCrunch argues that Facebook's privacy issues have only just begun, and that
they will be greatly accelerated by the company's inevitable adoption of location-based "check-ins." "This problem is only going to get worse," it writes. "The [privacy issues] with the greatest

make money if you can't sell targeted ads? How do you compete with Google?"
