I understand that my personal data will be used to sell advertising -- that's fine, you have to make money. But the way they're getting into the photo recognition and selling that info complete with geotags, etc makes me nervous.

We're going to see facebooks decline in the near future. When my grandma friend requests me, a technology is pretty much dead. The younger generation is already moving away from it seeing the 'trouble' it has caused for their siblings/etc. I loved facebook when you needed a .edu address to get an account. It was perfect for staying in touch with everyone that went to different schools. Now it's filled with religious and political propoganda (on both sides) that I don't want to deal with while online.
Indeed. My first "experience" w/ Facebook years ago convinced me it wasn't worth the nonsense. A business associate I barely knew contacted me after seeing pictures on Facebook of me boating w/ a girl he liked (actually there was at least a dozen of us boating). He's old enough to be her father and it creeped all of us out. I guess "trolling" around Facebook is a common thing for creepers. Anyway, the whole thing turned me away from it...looks like things may trend back my direction now after all eh?

Ah, so no problem with women raping young boys, but creeping on FB is a problem?

Makes sense.

Precisely. The boyhood fantasy come true vs old pathetic guy trolling around a social network on his Macbook in suspenders, boxers and knee high socks.

...think about it man.

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

I thought about it, and what's an old man doing with a Mac?

I don't know what's more disturbing. The fact he's trolling facebook or the fact you know what he's wearing.

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

SO who here cares about President Obama archiving your Facebook messages, even deleted ones?

On Facebook, MySpace? Obama’s got your e-mail

I could care less, it's not like there's any valuable info to be had from my account.

That's still beside the point. The point is the intrusion on privacy and spying on it's on citizens.

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

The article mentions this little tidbit too:

I'm sure this primarily applies to people who make disparaging comments about the W.H. and/or the President. Does it bother me that the W.H. might be recording these comments? No. No doubt this is probably another security/safety measure. There's a fine line between user privacy and government security, and I don't think this crosses it.
