    Privacy?? Privacy and Facebook don't belong in the same sentence. They monitor private chats done on their messenger. I don't think it's coincidence that a friend and I were talking about old cars, like we had decades ago, and next day when I go online, I'm hit with all kinds of posts related to auto enthusiasts and vintage cars. That entire conversation was in the 'private' messenger.

    I can only imagine what people get when, or if, a guy and gal are doing some serious personal chat thinking it's secret and safe. Nothing is private anywhere in Facebook.
