The more you hear about Facebook, the more you feel like you’re constantly being watched.
This morning, the social networking site de-activated Peter Davis’ account. Paper‘s Editor-at-Large posted a picture of a statue at Rick Owens’ house—a statue that looks like a real naked person and is, if you want to click through to his Twitter, pretty graphic. He was interviewing Owens and snapped images throughout his Paris home, including this one.
I probably wouldn’t think twice about posting an amazing, if half naked image of Kate Moss and tagging all of my former interns in it–I haven’t, but I would. And I wouldn’t expect my Facebook account to be de-activated. Though if it was, I’d probably agree with Peter who tweeted, “I am quitting FB. Twitter takes less time.”
But the real question is, does anyone who’s friends with Peter Davis care? The great thing about the internet is that everything’s out there, but you get to pick and choose what you click. So if, for example, you don’t ever want to see an image of nude woman, you probably wouldn’t click on a fashion site, or befriend a fashion person.
Meanwhile, Davis’ account is already back up and running, so if you we’re one of his 5,000 friends, he’d like you to re-request his friendship.
