Facebook Wants to Know Why You Didn't Publish That Status Update | Slate

In case anyone needed reminding, Facebook makes money when you generate content. And when you choose to not generate content by deleting that half-formed thought, you're denying Facebook revenue because it shows targeted ads based on what you share.

I use Facebook for many reasons. It is valuable to me as a social tool because my friends don't just live in Brooklyn or Washington Heights - they're in Abu Dhabi, Britain, Japan and Australia. I hate phones. Sometimes, all I have to say is a single photo, and I don't just want to send it into the abyss of Tumblr, which isn't where my personal life lives anyway. But I don't know how much I love the idea of being part of a grand social experiment run by advertisers.
