Let's see....Facebook is perfectly honest and will never do anything to cause a breach into our privacy. And, the NSA does not spy on people. Well, I'm 100% sold!

I can't wait to see how bad dude freaks out when/if google glass becomes mainstream. I'm all for privacy, but going postal on a forum does absolutely nothing to further the cause, if it concerns you then lobby for change. Running from thread to thread doing a chicken little will get you nowhere.

These ppl are a danger to all of us!!!!!!!!!!! - They dont care about thier privacy OR ANYONE ELSES!!!!!!!

If someone is stupid enough to place that kind of information on Facebook they get what they deserve. Stupid is as stupid does.

Someone goes to all the trouble of photographing people out in public and tracking them down just so they can send a few more spam emails???
Must be my spammers are a lot more intelligent than that and have found much easier ways .
Either that or I've never appreciated how much work they put into it.
I'll be much more gentle when I hit the delete button from now on, in acknowledgement of their efforts. That would be more work with less reward than most full time jobs.

WHAT kind of information? Re-read his post. Makes no sense.

Skinsguy: No one said FB is perfectly honest. They just aren't this evil empire that Rich and Dude fear...

I reread his post. My comment still stands as written. I have no idea what you are missing.

Hmmm I personally hate Fakebook w/ a passion, lol
I never felt compelled to post my personal business for others to see-
I love my privacy too much.
And- I loathe the narcissism, the sleaziness & the pure stupidity of it.

That being said--
I met someone the other day, who's from another country & she wanted me to create a Fakebook
so she can introduce me to some really wonderful men in her beautiful country (good friends of hers)
who are just my cup of tea, lol
According to her- it's a perfect match.....

Now I'm torn

Btw- they do invade your privacy, & steal your info.....
Not too comfortable w/ that.....
