I supposed you have seen this:

"In a loud and proud public announcement, it said it didnąt care whether its
members visited at all.

The company said it would provide a set of technology tools that will let
other companies create programs that tap into the heart of the social
network ‹ the endless stream of photographs, status updates and comments
that people post to the service. Saying it is unable to provide a range of
access to the service from every possible gadget, Facebook expects
developers to create Facebook programs that sit on computer desktops, run
inside Web browsers and are tailored to a wide range of mobile devices like
the iPhone."

Anyone want to hazard a guess how the filtering companies are going to
handle this? And they think proxie sites are a problem.

I am going to a meeting next week on suicide prevention and new media. Many
of the folks attending have provided us with their online activity
addresses. Most are risk prevention sites - that have a presence on
Facebook, MySpace, and YouTube. Hmm. Does anyone see a major problem here?
Students can't access these sites because they are all blocked.
