Kobo and Facebook, a bad Match

So sometime between my last book purchase on Kobo and a few days ago they crawled deeply in bed with Facebook. It was probably only a matter of time, but since Facebook is in my bad books for threatening to force me to timeline it was not a good move for them as far as I'm concerned.

I like Kobo. I like the fact that I can pay with PayPal or Chapters/Indigo gift cards. I like that they have a better selection at a cheaper price. I'm not so into the creep factor of having the blue 'f' follow me around. Of course I can always log out of Facebook before I log into Kobo and vice versa. But then they run the risk, or at least Facebook does, that I won't log back in, and not miss the experience.
