Facebook's new Beacon policy ...

... is to relentlessly ask you whether an individual transaction should be broadcast or not. (It's unclear whether advertisers will still have access to it.) This is a big step forward, since you won't accidentally broadcast, say, that you just bought that Tears for Fears album. But to me, it sounds like Vista's tendency to ask for security clearance to do the most mundane tasks.
