Facebook Update

Recently gone cold on Facebook, now receiving only the odd message and transferring the conversation back to conventional email as quickly as possible - Facebook provides me with no benefit once the connection has been made. Also I really don't want to know that John is looking for friendship networking, Jess added the what underwear are you or Julia has joined the geeks doing good sf chapter ... zzzzz.

Also read that Facebook has now added a Javascript client API (see story JavaScript Client Library for Facebook API on the Facebook Developer's forum. Great, more annoying Facebook applications to come.

Richard Stiennon of ZDNet reports that Secret Crush, a Facebook Widget is Installing Spyware. So not just more applications but now malicious ones.
