Dear Facebook, you are the only web-site that not only knows my real identity but also full names of my friends and their real identities. And that is ok, and I'm even fine with you trying to use that information to finally make some real money. But please do it in a transparent way, and don't try to do it by fooling your not-so-tech-savvy users. Your business-strategy currently sounds as shady as those "0% for 36 month" offers.
