Proprietary software is inherently exploitative. You cannot be surprised when  
it is put towards exploitative aims. That being said, I'm not sure that  
Facebook is exploitative because is is closed source and proprietary. It is  
exploitative because the company analyzes human psychology and creates false  
reward systems for people. It manufactures addiction for more monetary value.
