Social Media Fail

So, Amazon has this thing now that when you buy anything, it asks if you want to share your purchase on Facebook or other social-media-type venues. My answer is always no, partially because I think it's creepy, partially because I don't really think anyone cares when I buy a box of 50 thank you cards or a book called Information Rules: A Strategic Guide to the Network Economy, and partially because I don't want the recipient to know when there's a gift of Crocodile Dentist coming his way.

But I was especially amused/horrified when I ordered a book for kallah classes and Amazon offered to help me share the purchase with my 600 Facebook friends. Thanks, but no thanks, Amazon.
