Marketplace Tech Report for Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Facebook Timeline is rolling out to all users. A new report indicates that people aren't real excited about the change. Some of that discomfort might stem from the fact that Timeline is becoming mandatory rather than opt-in. And remember the old saying about free services like Facebook: If you're not paying for it, you're not the customer -- you're the product. When it comes to Facebook, it's always useful to look at what's in it for advertisers. Also in this program, Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips releases a new song with backing vocals by Siri.
