Given this, since facebook is the most popular social networking site in the world with about 400 million registered users and it provides a platform for applications to be hosted, I wonder whether Facebook is a good example of Identity Management in the cloud?
"It's like the 'Hotel California,' " said Nipon Das, 34, a director at a biotechnology consulting firm in New York who tried, unsuccessfully, to delete his account this fall. "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."
With the latest controversy with Facebook where users are opted into sharing information with partner sites, we clearly have an example of "identity federation" with attribute sharing. :)
What do you think?
