I'm starting this thread under "Self Defense Tactics" because I am not a fan of Facebook. It strikes me that even a couple of years ago, Facebook was a place to stay connected with friends and family, for those who couldn't be bothered to pick up the phone or send an email. Now it seems almost mandatory. No, thanks. Everyone I know, it seems, has a Facebook page. I have never and will never be a part of it. For one, I have too many acquaintances on too many levels, and I don't want everyone in one pot. Most importantly, the site has had continuing horror stories and privacy issues. Now they're working up some kind of facial recognition software. Get a photo of someone, run it through the software, and find any and all pictures of them on the internet, leading to other information and serious security issues. It pisses me right off when someone puts a picture of me on their Facebook page - some event or party or function I was attending. I'm a private person and don't like my life plastered on the internet. But it seems I'm in the vast minority, as everyone's in an endless race to get connected, collect friends, describe their education/background/favorite music, and let everyone know what they had for breakfast. I've seen TFF users in the past put up something that says, "Hey, I'm on facebook, here's my page ---" - with no regard whatsoever to the fact that the internet is a wide open smelting pot that spans the globe, and there are way too many freaks out there. Be careful, folks. New isn't always improved, and technology isn't necessarily your friend.
