WELL- I have been up all night and now it is in the morning...storms are finally done for now.. NOPE ...still coming this afternoon and pm...man I think the entire world has had enough to last plenty long... I was on FB and the internet real early this am but the storm shut the lights out....what is up with that?
social networking, ... its much about providing your personal information to companys which want to generate money with your data. individualized spam, personalized ads etc. etc.
nice experience to share your thoughts, feelings, photos, locations with your friends
Constantly displays ads for the "friend finder" that cannot be blocked - a tool that asks you for your password to your e-mail account in order to read, analyze and download your personal e-mails. Used to send a spam mail to each of your contacts from your name. Facebook seems to have such a great desire for your access data to your private e-mails that it even tends to lie - the friend finder ad recently said "Your friends found over 150 new contacts with the friend finder", the next day it were only 25, then no more than 20 were left and now the numbers have been taken out completely.
When using a site like this, be extremely cautious what information you give to facebook. Even though it appears to be a reputable site on first sight, alone because of the fact that it asks you for your private and secret e-mail password (and much more) and the methods with which you are tried to be convinced to do that, I would NOT call facebook a trustworthy site where I consider my data safe.
Although there is always spam and virus links to look out for that can't be helped with a site this big and public.
It is a very useful site and can connect you with long lost friends and relatives, they do their best to keep viruses and spam off the site but some always get through, don't click on suspicious links or friends links that your not sure of, i wouldn't recommend this site for children unless an adult applies the correct privacy settings but overall it's a great place.
