Einstein's Facebook Offer -- In the End, Will They Shmear You?
Don't get us wrong, we're all about a free lunch. Or even just a free bagel.
But yesterday, when we -- along with hundreds of thousands of others, according to Einstein's -- went to sign up for a a free bagel and shmear (that's cream cheese to you, if you were raised in Phoenix by gentile parents) on Einstein's Facebook page, we landed on an unappetizing message:
Allowing Free Bagel access will let it pull your profile information, photos, your friends' info, and other content that it requires to work.
We know -- there are strings attached to all of these deals. But this time? Um, no thanks. Maybe for a dozen bagels -- but only if you fly them in from H&H in Manhattan.
