From the first moment I felt that the thoughts of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project was the same idea that I did not finish the set in my mind. I had thought about something similar. With the addition of eliminating privacy. I asked myself: What is useful about privacy? Is the privacy helping the humanity? Image, Marketing, appearances, judging people by how they look or what car is using.. etc.
This is the realm of hypocrisy.

So. What is Zeitgeist doing in Facebook?

However: The most important thing for me is the risk that Facebook represents against the Free Internet. Facebook is a virtual version of Orwell's 1984!

And every day is more invasive.
Facebook's dream is to become the network itself. Now, they are requesting you the credit card, your phone number, your address. Facebook is also chasing you to always know your location (With the excuse: "It's for your safety.")So. If you live in London but you traveled to Paris, Facebook will ask a litany of tests to see If you are really in Paris ("It's for your safety. Could be a Hacker").

Now, Facebook is asking repeatedly, overwhelmingly, that you must choose Facebook as your home page.

Facebook is the most visited website in many countries. Internet seems to aim to become in a huge Facebook, while Facebook offers all the services (on a limited and controlled way) that the network provides you: Space for companies, causes and personal blogs.

I remember one of the Zeitgeist's premises: Taking Care free Internet.

Then I see a contradiction here. And I do not understand why the Facebook´s Zeitgeist links to Greenpeace. Greenpeace was highly questioned by favoring some corporations at the expense of others. Almost always favorable to corporations of England, as in South America.

I hope someone can help ne to dispel these doubts. I do not think the argument: "Let's use the weapon of the enemy" is applicable in this case, according to the danger that Facebook represents.

I've never been pestered to provide my location by Facebook, nor any other information. This guy is just trying to prove Facebook is some secret tool used by the government or evil corporations to spy on you. Yeah like they'd want to hear every single thing you've been up to in the last day (like some people use Facebook for)

The "danger" of making your information available to its partners.

As an advertiser, let me assure you: I don't really give a crap about your private information. It's useful so I don't spend any money advertising complicated products to, for example, Zeitgeisters. That's about it.
