Facebook and Its Users, Mutually Dependent - NYTimes.com
Not everyone was comfortable with that revelation, but beneath the backlash, Professor Turkle said, loomed a larger struggle: users coming to terms with the Web’s evolution from a free-wheeling Wild West into a mature marketplace where the currency, personal data, will finance and fuel the next generation of products and services.

“It crystallized a set of issues that we will be defining for the next decade — the notion of self, privacy, how we connect and the price we’re willing to pay for it,” she said. “We have to decide what boundaries we’re going to establish between ourselves, advertisers and our personal information.”

THAT quandary is not confined to Facebook. Every social media company, like Twitter and Instagram, a mobile photo-sharing application, and Foursquare, a location-based service, will have to introduce a coherent business model — most likely one that will make use of what it knows about the people who have access to and use its service.
