This week on the CNET UK Podcast, Ian was suffering from World Cup madness, so Rich and Nick joined Flora to talk about whether we're all quitting Facebook over privacy concerns, Vodafone's new approach to gouging us over data roaming, and Spotify's new price plans.

We look at some cheeky IMs from a young Mark Zuckerberg, the social-networking alternatives, and the tools you can use to sort your privacy settings -- and we hear what you think about the whole kerfuffle in our podcast poll.


If you have enough free time for a boyfriend or girlfriend, but not enough time to find one, you can outsource your online dating.
