But often, he got results that seemed dubious or could not find the song at all. So a year later, at age 16, he started his own site. That site, MetroLyrics.com, crept up on search engine results, and before he knew it, he said, checks from advertisers were arriving in the mail and the site “started looking a lot more like a serious business.” Now 24, Mr. He is not the only one walking that particular stairway to heaven.

The Evolution of Privacy on Facebook

I have a profile, and so does nearly everyone I know under the age of 60. However, Facebook hasn't always managed its users' data well.
