We all know today is all about networking, so when I came across the site Stik.com, I was pretty interested in what it had to offer. Why not give business to my friends, right? Seems like the right thing to do? And, it’s simple to sign up! Just use your Facebook credentials. That’s where I was stopped in my tracks.
To me, that’s the kitchen sink of permissions when it comes to an app. I’m not so concerned about my info, I’m more concerned about my friends information. Maybe they don’t want their info available to a third party. Why should I give permission to give that away? I shouldn’t, and I didn’t. However, I get the feeling that it’s the way of the future when it comes to utilizing social media sites like Facebook. How much are you willing to surrender to be a part of a growing media network?
