Thanks for the link. Though most people on this mailing list are
probably privacy-savvy or at least privacy-aware at a basic level,
pleaserobme.com seems like a good site to share with our less tech and
privacy-aware friends and relatives. They, after all, are the ones most
vulnerable to the temptations of over-sharing on social networks.
I do find it rather ironic that Twitter is one of the sponsors, since
Twitter is always offering me to add location data to my posts, even
though I repeatedly click the "No Thanks" link.
The studies cited by the article Melvin linked are encouraging—at least
people are increasingly becoming aware of social networking privacy
issues. I look forward to GNU social's rollout to see how we'll do in
attracting users outside the free software community.
