Yep, so very true. Facebook is free because the members are the product, enticed by a service.

Facebook is absolutely not the way to go. 

1) Facebook requires that you join facebook in order to participate. 
2) Facebook's terms of service requires that you grant them the right 
to use your images and text in any way they see fit. 
3) Facebook will reformat your information in a way that suits them, without 
taking input from the people generating the content. 
4) When you interact with facebook, facebook generates all sorts of "links" 
between the reader and content interesting to them. They then sell this 
information to anyone who will pay. 
5) Putting your content on facebook limits the viewership to those willing 
to kuckle under to facebook's policies. 

I'd never use facebook for any sort of public contact, because of what 
they require of the reader. 

Oh.. and facebook has been loosing members right and left, because of these 
very policies..
