    I guess I'll have to add Facebook to my list.


    Things to do to keep my subjects apathetic after conquering them:
    1. Run sitcoms on TV 24hrs a day.
    2. Unblock access to Facebook.


    Keep the ideas coming. :argh:

    Chrome throws up an site certificate not trusted message when I try to access that page. Is this happening to anyone else?

    One word. DISGUSTING. BUT, why should we be surprised at this gross invasion of peoples privacy. For those who cant get a real life and must satisfy their addiction to phony relationships in such places as FB... the only solution to this nonsense is to type your stuff in something like wordpad then paste it in the text field when youre done.

    Glad I dont do FB.

    What, are you saying that Facebook has ads?

    OK, so I do know that. But I didn't realize, until I read about it somewhere ;)

    I love Adblock Plus :)

    Facebook is already "spybook". Like Julian Assange once said, ""Facebook is the most appalling spying machine ever made"".

    Facebook exists as a spying machine. It was disguised as a social media site, so that everyone uses it. That way everyone, who uses it, is spied on!

    The only reason I still use Facebook is because I NEED it to keep in contact with my friends. Otherwise, if all of my friends didn't use Facebook, I wouldn't be using it at all.

    Facebook is getting all characteristics of malware (spying and key logging). I'm glad that I've stopped using their "services".

    If you aren't using Facebook, how are you still keeping in contact with your friends via electronically?

    With my friends I keep in touch electronically via email. Though I prefer to meet them over a drink... With my acquaintances I don't keep in touch electronically.

    Since all of my friends use Facebook, I have one, too. Since there is no way for me keep in contact with them other than through Facebook, I need to use Facebook. I don't post any real personal info on Facebook other than a picture of myself and my real name.

    Well, I and my friends also use Gmail for all our email and chat conversations and I don't expect that our mails or chats are any more "private". I try to always have that in mind when using email or chatting.

    I don't understand everyone's complaints.
    No one forces you to use facebook. No one.
    You voluntarily log in and disclose information.
    Your problem.

    Don't want your stuff to be logged?
    Do, not, use, facebook, simple.

    Better yet, don't put stuff on there that is private.

    +1!
    I simply don't get either why people are complaining.
    What are they doing there if they are concerned with privacy?

    Yes I agree with you. People should not expect any privacy when they use their service. But logging keystrokes and recording your cursor movements ... that's just untasteful.

    If only you could remove all the untasteful things from the world.
    It would be a quiet, lonely place.

    Apparently kids are abandoning Face book in favour of other services anyway. Soon it'll just be the parents that have to be careful there.

    What other services are they using? I want to know because I don't want to be stuck with Facebook, which sucks. Facebook has no privacy and it is a terrible social media site.

    It looks like Instagaram, Snapchat and even Twitter are becoming more popular. More news here.

    No wonder I noticed so many of my friends are no longer using Facebook anymore. I think I might consider moving over to those services, instead of using Facebook.

    Depends on how you want to depend on social services for socializing. I only use facebook to keep in touch with people that otherwise I wouldn't call or email. Recently I met up with my classmates from middle school thanks to facebook. I didn't have a single of their emails or phone numbers.
    I don't use facebook to talk to people everyday. But if I was I would probably move to other services.

    There are some nice stories connected with facebook but most of the time
    it's about showing off what you've got, where you've been, what you've
    read and so on. I am not judging because wanting to share things with
    others is part of human nature (to some extend) but I don't get the
    "I-can't-leave-facebook-because-I-have-no-choice" talk. There are a lot
    of alternatives. I think, it is part laziness and part a narcissistic
    vein in people who want to be admired, be loved and so on (of course,
    also human). They know that with facebook you could (in theory) be
    connected to hundreds of million of people. Other social networks don't
    have such an audience (->not attractive). Walking away from facebook
    with the "friends" that matter most to you and using another service
    would be an easy thing. In theory.
