This is posturing, no doubt, but let it sink in for a second that Facebook would rather pull out of Europe than agree not to export data out of Europe.
"Facebook Social Networks Facebook Threatens To Pull Out of Europe If It Doesn't Get Its Way"
"The decision Facebook's referring to is a preliminary order ... to stop the transfer of data about European customers to servers in the U.S., over concerns about U.S. government surveillance of the data. "
@craigmaloney I *so* wish they would do it. So that everyone could see just how quickly people converge on new ways to connect with each other, and it would be obvious that Facebook was nothing but an intrusive happenstance intermediary.
