Hey Facebook, OPEN UP!

I been hanging out on Group in Facebook a bit more then I have ever before. The group is “Bloggers of Canada“, go join there if you like, it’s been growing pretty quickly and there is some great value in the discussion. I don’t know why but this if the first group I’ve really been active on, just kinda happened that way. A few things I have found there have been annoying me and some other people. Chris Brogan has posted a few times about it and I suggest that you go read him for far better coverage.What i can’t stand having to go back and check on the discussion boards. I can never keep track of new posts and new members. They need to use RSS so I can subscribe to a number of feeds and make sure I never miss a thing. If I could subscribe to a feed for new posts on the discussion boards, one for the new members and one for new “recent news” items I could stay on top of things far more effectivly AND I would be back on their site more often to post replies. What they don’t get is the only group I keep up with is the Canadian Bloggers because the way they make me use the site is limiting what I can keep up with. There is a lot happening in the other groups that I would love to participate in and through RSS I could but they dont allow it.One other thing that I’d like to make quick note of is the amount of data the collect and keep. There has been a big buzz around the net about it. I don’t mind them knowing stuff about me but I should be able to delete EVERYTHING easily. Acording to Steven Mansour it is extremely far from it. Here is what I suggest they do is allong with the option to deactivate your account, which I think is kind of handy, they should allow you to DELETE you account which will dump everybit of data they have on you! Just my two cents, what do you think?
