    Everyone used to own at least a few buttonhooks, back in the 1890s. A woman wouldn't think of leaving the house without "putting on her face" in the 1950s.

    Things change. What would be a big surprise would be if things didn't change. (Anyone still remember RCP/M or RBBS?)

    I read this on Slashdot yesterday; it looks like part of the methodology was to study how often "facebook" was searched for in Google. If you make Facebook your homepage, or if your browser's typed URL history matches typing "fac" to facebook.com, then naturally the number of Google searches for "facebook" are going to decrease.

    Not a very good study, in my opinion, and I'm not a Facebook fanboy by any means.

    That's Slashdot. The article used their own data which more compelling.
