Facebook Community Pages?

Anyone have an idea of what these Facebook community pages are meant to be? I ask because they apparently created them by mining Wikipedia, and since I have a Wikipedia entry I now also have a Facebook community page.

It seemed to me prudent to click the "like" button, which apparently means that my friends on Facebook are getting the status message "Michael A. Burstein likes Michael A. Burstein." Well, that is true, I suppose.

I also signed up to help make the page as good as it could be. Why? Well, because the page has the following message:


Our goal is to make this Community Page the best collection of shared knowledge on this topic. If you have a passion for Michael A. Burstein, sign up and we'll let you know when we're ready for your help.


Since I surely must have a passion for myself, there you go.

Before you get much older, I'd bone up on what the media is saying about Facebook, privacy, and other related rights. Seems they're being mightily possessive about data and what they can do with it, and what you can and (more importantly) can't opt out of.
Seems they've adopted the worst of the AOL playbook.
