In this day and age of Internet snooping that includes hackers; advertisers; rogue Facebook apps; ID thief’s, and Big Brother — who in their right mind would want to surf bare-bottomed and play a game that masks it’s own identity behind a privacy shield?

It’ll be one or two in the morning before he goes to bed. He works as a Web application developer at a staffing company during the day, but those late-night hours in his Illinois home are where he works on what he calls “who I really am.” Kruse spends those hours making Facebook better.

In the case of Facebook’s new ‘Graph Search’, as in most things Facebook, the answer’s pretty direct: it’s about the data. Graph Search, though it may seem to be just a cool new way of finding stuff, could also turn out to be a very clever way of Facebook gobbling up even more data than before – as well as trying to squeeze even more value from the data that’s already out there.

The latest thwack: Netflix lost 800,000 U.S. subscribers in the quarter that just ended, which was littered with PR nightmares including a price hike and the Qwikster debacle.
