Be careful what you "like" on Facebook

Somewhere in Facebook's terms of service is a disclaimer that allows them to use your "likes" as ads on your friends' wall. When you click "I agree," you're basically giving them permission to use your information to generate revenue for Facebook. This happened to Nick Bergess when he "liked" a link on for a 55 gallon barrel of personal lubricant. He found it extremely funny and wanted to share a laugh with friends about what possibly was a lifetime supply of the stuff. To his surprise, his picture and the link started showing up on friends' walls as a personal endorsement from Amazon instead of the joke he had intended it to be. likes on facebook
