Show Me The Money!!! Or the dirty underside of social networking sites

How are these informal tagging sites profitable? Is the information gathered from my browsing habits going to be sold? To whom? I've basically told people that I'm letting them peek into

By encouraging our users to use these networking sites, are we just giving data away to marketers to be used? Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

OCLC has published a study, Sharing, Privacy and Trust in Our Networked World, that looks very pertinent to my concerns.
