And does anyone really think otherwise? How do we think Zuck has made his billions? By selling FB user's information is a great source of revenue.

Actually I believe the title of your post is supposed to be "Facebook STILL doesn't give a damn about your privacy or security"


"again" implies that they did give a damn at some point.

You are correct sir, as FB has never given a damn about anyone's privacy or security.

People ask me if I have a Facebook account all the time. My response? "Do I look stupid?" And roll my eyes.

I don't like saying this but look around, people don't care about their privacy anymore.

What's the figures? 175 million people a day use FB?

lol My sentiments exactly. Never had one and don't see me ever having one. Not only because of the security issues but also because I don't particularly consider it anyone's business where I ate dinner last night, where I went on vacation or who my friends are for that matter. Furthermore, I don't care where my friends ate dinner last night, where they are currently shopping at the moment or to see a bunch of pictures of their dog.

I think mostly what attracts people to facebook is all of other peoples every day life drama. I guess its sort of like seeing pictures and reading about a real life Jerry Springer episode. I am amazed by all of the personal information people post and the pictures they post on facebook. Apparently they just don't think about what they are doing. Facebook just loves it because they are saving every bit of it to a data base to sell later on when someone runs for public office or becomes famous.
