This is scary and exiting at the same time... A quote from the second article-
Most people are thinking about what their future Facebook chats will look like. For me and others who walk among the security crowd, the first thoughts are more like this:
How long before someone hacks into this?
Is this yet another social networking tool to avoid at all costs?
I never really shared the phobia some have toward all social networking. In fact, judging by all the security folks on Twitter and Facebook today, I would say most people are getting over it.
It's not that we think this stuff has gotten more secure. It's just that we've become willing to take the risk. You can't hide from every new piece of technology, even if it's destined to become SkyNet someday. We figure it's best to use it before it uses (or destroys) us.
And so in I go, exploring this new toy.
Not that it's really new. My first impression is that this looks a lot like Google Talk.
The thing is, when Facebook does it, they make it so easy that my long-deceased grandparents could use it. I can upload slide shows on Facebook in minutes, and I've never been good at that sort of thing.
So, expect Facebook's new toy to take off. Expect the bad guys to do bad things with it.
Once you get over that last point, you'll be feeling technologically sophisticated in no time.
