I think Mr Zuckerberg must resign and be brought to justice for anti-competitive behaviour and deliberate privacy violations.

@ericbuijs The ten cents is similar to other figures I'd seen estimated before. To make a profit it means that each Facebook user's data is maybe worth 5 cents per year. It's extremely marginal, so the business model really depends upon having billions of users.

@bob Kind of shocking that it's worth so little. Also it's hard to imagine that their business model is sustainable in the long run. It'll increasingly force them to act maliciously to keep the cash flow going.

@ericbuijs @bob “The number one threat to Facebook is not another scale social network, it is the fracturing of information..."
I find that encouraging :-)
