Creepy and Uncool, Facebook (and CNN)

This really surprised me. Got my attention for sure, but not in a good way:

Facebook on CNN.com's homepage!?

I don't want Facebook plugins as ads on CNN.com, for starters. And certainly I don't want to see that it knows who I am and who my FB friends are. This is really creepy. I never gave permission for this. I mean, a CNN site visitor might wonder if CNN (or some ad network) has the visitor's Facebook info now.

Anyone else seen this?

Thinking of posting a comment to this blog entry? That's nice. But please note: As of January 19. 2014, I no longer review comments. So they will never appear. So don't bother. If you want to comment on something you read here, go to twitter and write your comment there and just include "@brianstorms" in the tweet. I am no longer moderating the comments here; I just assume everything is spam and Intense Debate seems to have abandoned support for its product.
