Don’t you get the feeling that FB is turning into AOL circa 1996? I think i know how this story ends…

Kelly says the issue comes down to the fact that Google Friend Connect users don’t have control over data pulled from Facebook. In particular, Facebook is concerned that they have no relationship to the end site where the data is presented (in the example above, IngridMichaelson). Instead, Google has inserted itself as a middleman in the process.

Kelly says, once permission is granted to share data, the user has no way to revoke that permission from their Facebook account.

Google’s Glazer counters that they have a very effective method for unlinking to a site that a user has given permission to, so users will be just fine.
