The following is an excerpt:
"Some might consider Castillo-Bach a social heroin of sorts. She realized how creepy Facebook is, so she created an entire web site to meet the needs of those who are over and done with facial recognition and other marketing ploys whereby their information is used. Watch UmeNow.com& #039;s promotional video here entitled "Nothing to Like About Facebook," so you can see exactly why Castillo-Bach started the site. (Warning: if you thought Facebook was scary, this video will creep you out even more!)

' UmeNow.com is positioning itself as the bold new player set to destroy Facebook's lead in the social networking universe. It's the first and only ad-free social communication service in the world that is totally focused on privacy,' says Social Times."
