Facebook 3.0 will incorporate the retina scanners seen in "Minority Report". Your Facebook page will show everytime you enter a store and/or buy something. So get ready for posts like "Steve has purchased tampons at Walmart. Like." Or "Stacy has entered Fredericks of Hollywood. Like."

Fortunately, Facebook 4.0 will release an app for your iBrain implants so you can clarify those posts as soon as they appear on your timeline. Better biographies through purchasing histories. Vice-versa.
