Now I’m Paranoid

get-paranoid-final300.jpg

 

I was busy doing some stuff , like checking some emails and such, and a headline caught my eye. It mentioned Facebook and since I hang out there (with many of you!)  I decided to click the link. Look what I found ! Go ahead, I’ll wait…..

(elevator Muzak here)

You’re back? Did you read it? I was always aware that there was some sharing going on because FB is a business when you get right down to it. I just wasn’t aware of how much sharing there is!

Yes, I’m guilty of taking quizzes and asking my friends to play along too. Yes, I sent virtual gifts, drinks and hugs. I will be taking a hard look at what’s on my profile page.

Yeah, today I’ll be cleaning house over there. Not leaving….just  cleaning.

    That’s why I didn’t use my real name and real info on there or MySpace, always seems weird how much info people put into their profiles.

    I try not to put too much information out there but when you sign up for say the workplace group, you have to put in your work email, etc. Luckily you can edit stuff after the fact but yeah, too much information out there is not good.

    wow, thanks for that info…gonna go clean up Facebook this weekend….not that anyone would care anything about lil ole me, but I see the privacy issue and it’s bad….I had no idea how much…I always though Facebook was so much more private than MySpace….I was fooled!

    Slick-In order to know what Facebook looks like, you would have to check out websites that don’t include animals or porn or both at the same time. *Sheesh!*

    Yeah me too. I don’t send out invites anymore and decline every invite I get from people and don’t use any applications that require personal info.

    Still, even then, it pays to be careful, that’s so true

    Lynda-Basically, it was that they tracked all the favorite music or interests and then those of your friends so they knew what kind of advertising goes on the pages. Strangely enough, not everyone gets the same ads on their pages. I had noticed that because my daughter has a page too.
