    Don't use Facebook - not ever.

    You leave enough footprints out on the net each day without voluntarily offering your whole life up.

    And besides, its nicer making real friends, rather than imaginary ones. :)

    Employers present/future are looking at facebook and other social networking websites law enforcement too. The IRS is probably looking too, looking for people who brag about making a killing at the track or in the casino.

    The trend seems to be toward less privacy.

    The first two examples of banks and the government trolling the internet for intelligence on customers and taxpayers is beyond revolting. Free society? Or an old Soviet-style surveillance blanket?

    And this is just the beginning - sometimes I think Orwell's book is being used as a 'For Dummies' guide by politicians.

    I deleted my facebook account a while ago, I didnt agree with their retention of my data , even set to private it's still just one big brother honeypot.
