Facebook Nabs Patent That'll Make You Rethink Adding Friends Facebook locked down a patent this week that might make you rethink who you "friend" on the site.
The patent, titled "Authorization and authentication based on an individual's social network," will do three things: better filter spam and offensive emails sent to the account you use to log in to Facebook, improve the ability to search for relevant content on the site and allow lenders to reference your account to determine credit approval. http://www.newsy.com/videos/facebook-na … g-friends/
Just when I thought it was safe to start using FB again! This is appalling if they actually start doing this.
