    I’m curious to know – on what do you base your statement that all Facebook users will probably be required to opt-out of ads at some point? We’ve haven’t had the option to opt out of all ads on Google yet – do you foresee a day coming where that happens as well?

    A company has to be allowed to make money – Facebook shouldn’t have to stop showing us ads any more than any other site does, unless we all want to pay a monthly membership fee to access our Facebook accounts. How do we expect them to earn money?

    If you do have some reason to believe that there will be a forced opt out, at least back that statement up with something, such as the recent concern over behavioral targeting and if there is a bill in committee currently about that, etc. Helps to bolster your case.

    I agree with the commenter above, as those were my exact thoughts as I read the article. Why would Facebook be required to give users the option to opt-out of targeted advertising?
