Has he Heard of Email or Phones?

This makes me wonder - it's in a long screed about how Facebook is missing some level of privacy controls:

maybe I only want to tell a few close buddies about that episode with the VERY BAD bean burrito. maybe your girlfriend only wants a FEW honest opinions from her CLOSE friends on whether that new dress makes her ass look fat. and maybe your frat brother only wants to tell a few buddies about the AWESOME house party he's throwing next weekend, when he's planning to invite the smoking hot new freshman sensation over with 3 of her equally sizzling BFFs. and finally, maybe I only want to share that airfare deal on a Final Four Vegas roadtrip (& the pictures!) with my set of close friends. what happens in Vegas stays in a very tight and private social graph... you hope, anyway.

Maybe, just maybe, Dave McClure could figure out that sending an email, or picking up the phone works just fine for that class of problem. Expecting a social media service to solve every problem for you is.... silly.
