Ah yes. The latest scare going around Facebook.
ONLY YOU CAN SEE THIS INFORMATION ANYWAY.

Facebook's Privacy Issues Are Even Deeper Than We Knew - Forbes

but it's free and I don't have a life and I don't have any friends in the real world.................

The question is going to be, which causes the greatest regrets in 10 years, your tats or your FB activity. The tats may be easier to remove.

10k posts in a 4 year period is only like 7 posts a day. With the widespread availability for conversation on CityData, there are plenty of reasons to post here.

Dude111, EVERYTHING Facebook has listed about a person that person has WILLINGLY posted on their page, name, age, location, DOB, and yes phone number.

You do know your internet provider knows and keeps record of EVERY site you have ever been to?

Thanks for posting that link, Native. I'm not on FB, but some of my friends are and I'm going to forward the link to them.

This is an interesting thread.

I have some news for you guys who care about your privacy...there is no such THING as privacy. Your information is already in various databases somewhere ready for anyone willing to pay the right price to obtain it!

And there are a whole lot of companies that know your SSN, CC#'s, and everything else, so save us the trouble and post them here. Ah yes unlike facebook, sony and a few others, some actually try to secure them.
