The Facebook Village

We recently held an event with Facebook, where they showed a video of what would (could?) happen if you put RFID bracelets (a bracelet version of an Oyster card) on 650 teenagers and tracked them for a few days in a fixed environment.

OK, I admit that as a parent it’s quite a scary concept, however the teenagers took to the concept en-masse – statistics like 35,000 uploaded photos for those 650 teens would be classed at successful by virtually any brand.

So is this the future? Will our children have an RFID tag in their mobile phone which automatically tags where they are, what they’re doing, all their phone’s photos and uploads them to a central place on the Internet (for the time being, Facebook)?
