The word Facebook has made it into the dictionary. It has been included in the 2008 edition of the Collins English Dictionary as both a noun and a verb. Facebook lets users have a personal webpage where they can contact friends and display pictures.

究竟,個人自由的界限何在?在這本書中,作者為娼妓、皮條客、吸毒販毒者、敲詐者、(非政府的)偽造貨幣者、高利貸業者、不支持慈善事業的人……這些「背德者」辯護。作者稱他們為「經濟上的代罪羔羊」(替死鬼),對這些長久以來遭輕蔑、誤解甚至裁定為違法的職業,努力恢復其應有地位,探究其經濟功能,證明他們對社會是有益的,並強調「合意成人之間的自願性交易」不應被譴責,而且侵犯「非攻擊者」是不合法的。
