These days, Facebook is often refereed to as a "walled garden" (quite
appropriate for this thread). I would like to add that it's like Willy
Wonka's walled garden (if he ever had one). Things go in, few things ever
come out.

What do I mean by that? Have you ever noticed that when you do a Google
search, nothing from Facebook ever pops up? The reason is that Facebook has
blocked metacrawlers from doing their job so the return result is nothing.
Just like a walled garden, you can't peak in and see what's inside unless
you're invited. Yet material keeps coming into the Facebook sink, and this
depauperates what could be a web even more full of rich
information/photos.  The other important thing to note is that all photos
and text that are posted to Facebook belongs to Facebook. They hold the
ability to use any of your material any time they want. So to me, Facebook
is a very large private library that is dismally organized and trying
searching for an image or a post will drive you crazy. There are better
options out there, you just have to figure out what it is and implement it
-- easier said than done of course.
