The complexity was inevitable

A reporter from The New York Times, whose name at present escapes memory, was interviewed on NPR a couple of days ago about Facebook's ever-changing privacy settings (pictured).  Despite their best efforts, Fb's inability to settle is the result of 350 million Facebook profiles, the enormity of which guarantees a labyrinth of issues that may never end.

Because we fixate on keeping up with people, the majority of whom we don't care about all that much, the number of Facebook users will continue to increase... unless the rumor of implementing a monthly charge becomes reality.  If that happens, Fb will go the way of MySpace.
