Facebook Crossed The Creepy Line And Can’t Go Back | Buzzfeed
"Google makes a lot of futuristic technology [...] that feel like useful tools on their own merits.

20 criminal cases solved by using the Facebook
Read between the lines here. "Users of the Facebook are 43% more likely to consider people trustworthy" is another way of saying "users of the Facebook are morons".
