Good way to keep track of family, friends, and colleagues. I read the fine print, don't use apps or games, and read the fine print. Other than what virtually any site can get from my IP, the only valid information FB has about me is my name. Even my picture is 30 years old.

Good for you.....everyone should, as the minute you allow access (especially via apps) there's a wealth of data that comes across (as well as the ability for others to post info on your wall, in a lot of cases).

NO!!

No Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, texting, ad nauseum.

We simply do not understand the attraction/obsession.

No - used to though...

Tried it in the beginning, but my email was hijacked and maybe it wasn't related (I'd had the email for YEARS and was diligent with changing/protecting my password) so, I was no longer willing to play. I really couldn't find enough time either - it seemed so consuming.

So, no.

As texting has come up on this thread, I'll post that while I no longer FB as I mentioned previously, I find texting invaluable. It is simple and eliminates lots of wasted time talking when all you need or want to convey is a small amount of info which you then have a written record of. You do really need a full qwerty keyboard to do it efficiently.

Send a message via Skype™ to Melody Ranch
Hacked first of Feb 2012

I have received several virus packed Emails this AM.....all from Friend Airstream Forum members. These same names are on my Facebook page so there is a possible link there too. Don't open that attachment from a friend without extreme caution. ( I am going to miss out on some great jokes because of this.)

The benefits of using Facebook far outweigh the disadvantages, for me at least. Facebook provides a handy single point through which I can keep in contact with friends and family all over the world, sharing photos, news and the like. As with many Internet related applications, though, I assume that anything I put on Facebook is automatically in the public domain so I don't put anything up that's even vaguely sensitive. I do understand that Facebook needs to turn a profit and it's presented as being free to me, so I know that there's a trade off with things like advertising, but I'm a big boy, I can deal with that. Anyway, I like to think that I use Facebook rather than Facebook uses me.

The Facebook debate is similar to that which arose when I was doing IT support in the late nineties and e-mail was beginning to take hold at work. A lot of people wanted off the system because they were getting e-mails that they didn't think were relevant. My argument was that you should use e-mail to your advantage and ignore and/or delete anything that you felt wasn't relevant; it isn't hard to do, after all. However, many people felt that they were obliged to read and retain every last piece of junk in their Inboxes and I couldn't dissuade them otherwise. I couldn't get rid of the image, though, of these people opening and reading every little bit of junk mail that arrived in their mailboxes at home and then filing it all away for use later.

This is how I do it: Facebook is for my friends and family, I keep the security fairly tight on it, and I rarely post anything that can be tracked (no phone numbers, no addresses, etc), but I will post locations and my schedule. I do treat everything on it as public, though. E-mail is for private stuff and I keep the filters pretty tight. Blogs are for the world to see freely, so no addresses, I tend to post where I WAS, not where I am, and I rarely use full names and stay vague on whereabouts of people, as well as making sure places in pictures and children can't be traced either, so I don't gift friends with a robbery or a kidnapping. Forums I treat a bit like blogs.

All tech is just a tool, and you can choose to use it or be used by it.

Ever since Inland signed up on facebook, we are bombarded with solicitations from all to many places, companies and the like, that keeps the delete button active.

Even daily proposals from singles and hookers seem to flourish.
