Delete This When You’re Done: Snapchat and the Power of Deletion : The New Yorker

Mark Zuckerberg believes that every year, people share twice as much online as they did the year before. It is perhaps less a prophecy than an ethos, or maybe more a kind of threat. After all, each new Facebook product is designed to get people to do exactly that: share more.

Facebook Home, for example, injects Facebook directly into the most personal computer you own, your phone. It takes over text messaging, and fresh Facebook content appears every time you turn on the device’s display. It is a constant reminder that you could—should!—be sharing whatever you’re doing with your Facebook friends, in part so that Facebook and its partners can use your detritus to develop a more complete profile of who you are.
