When you get a new wall post or message, Facebook used to include the content in the emails they sent you. Now they just say you’ve got a new post/message. They’re trying to get me to stay logged in all the time. It’s having the opposite effect though.

Regarding the data mining, I don’t like it either but it’s not like every other company isn’t doing the same thing.
