You can’t talk about social media this week without mentioning the on-going Facebook privacy brouhaha as I wrote yesterday in Reactions to Facebook Privacy Changes Vary.

Not far behind was Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren, who posted a poll on her blog asking who was dumber: her or a critical viewer who wrote her to tell her how dumb *she* was. Turns out most people thought Greta was dumber by a large margin.

Sometimes that Internet can be a harsh mistress. And with that, this week’s five links in social media:
