A Special Message to the Mark Zuckerberg Wannabe...
It's my last week in college and I am swamped with a 20-page research paper and studying for final exams. I was totally in the zone until I was notified that my photo, as well as a few of my friends', appeared on a website called www.RateBU.com. Apparently, the site takes one of your profile pictures [you must be a female] and site visitors can rate and also compare you to the photo adjacent to yours.
First of all, this is a complete INVASION OF PRIVACY. Just because I have put my photos on Facebook for my friends to see, does not mean that I am giving permission for my photos to be placed anywhere on the net.
Second, this is absolutely DEGRADING & DISGUSTING. No one should be rated, compared, or publicly scrutinized like this. Everyone is beautiful in their own way and this can do some serious emotional damage to someone on the site.
Last, this has made me rethink what I want to reveal about myself on Facebook in addition to seriously putting my profile on lockdown. Since Facebook is growing and expanding its services, I think I should have done this anyway and recommend to anyone who cares about their privacy, to do the same.
Finally Justin Doody, I am sure you will be sued left and right. This is not even original. You're just a poser from The Social Network. Enjoy paying for your stupidity for the rest of your life.
