    "social captchas" is about the most idiotic thing I've ever seen. It's unrealistic and will do nothing to stop anyone who is adept at getting information they want. As sites change so do those who seek to profit from that information change as well. This will only lock out everyday users who don't log in often or have no clue what picture their so called "friends" have up. Sheesh, I thought I'd seen it all until now.

    Most teenagers don't know what all their Friends look like. There will be so many of them that get their accounts fucked up. In their efforts to combat spam, Facebook is pretty much creating an opportunity for a new competitor to enter the market.
