Warcraft and Other Blizzard Products to Integrate Facebook

My sister forwarded a link to me the other day about what I think can only be cause for disaster. The two most addictive things on the net are gonna be working together to take over your life. That’s right, now you can post the status of your Kil’jaden raid party, or whoever is the big boss du jour, and alienate the last vestiges of your links to hummanity.   I’m more concerned that the association will lead to further erosions of privacy, since that is apparently Facebook’s favorite thing to do these days, mainly in the form of tying ever greater amounts of personal data into one central location.  But then again, maybe it’s better that integration comes in an official form from Blizzard, rather than some 3rd party with unknown motivations.  I guess it all comes down to who you trust.
