    As a recent FB enroller I don't see anything in the way of personal info being exchanged. Posts are usually observations and advice like " I'm depressed today" or "here's a picture I took" etc. They have your name and e=mail address and birthday. Only "friends" I allow can see my posts, and any hackers would be bored to death. I think reading my Wilder's posts would yield more about me than FB.
