The Future: Social Media at 100,000 ft

Dutch airline KLM has just announced a service called "Meet and seat". Customers can now check who's on their flight before they leave and find fellow passengers on social media. The service allows you to add people on LinkedIn and Facebook and aims to encourage conversations between passengers. This leads to the age old question, can social sites tell us too much? If a stranger knows my name, place of work and where I'm going, I may not want to be in the same room as him/her. Let alone be on the same flight.
What are your thoughts?
