I completely agree: when possible the "active" behavior of webpages 
should be implemented in JS (client side). In general however I think 
that as most services as possible should be accessible only to 
authenticated users. This would cut significantly the possibility of 
hacking random fb with a worm.

I agree that this is the way to go for world-readable content. I believe 
however that if i want to publish blog posts that only my friends can 
read or share with them some pictures publishing to a third-party is not 
an option. In this case the FB could play a role.

I guess you really have a lot of friends :) I think that in a normal 
setup there would be not more than one concurrent user of the 
freedombox. I believe this because as I was saying above I think content 
published by the FB should be accessible to a small number of 
authenticated people.
