Are you someone’s user-generated content?

Brian Clark has published an excellent piece which explains why I prefer to publish things here, on my own website, rather that on my Facebook profile. Worth reading in its entirety, but it concludes: “Valuable content on a site you own is a classic win-win for readers and the site owner, while publishing on Facebook is a lopsided relationship that favors Zuckerberg and his data-hoarding cronies. While I think social networking is useful in small quantities, I’ve no interest in becoming someone’s user-generated content, especially at the expense of my privacy.”

    I suppose Zombie fights are a form of content to be publish like any other.
