- Facebook; Does it scare the **** out of you.
Well I have my privacy settings as tight as I can get them on Facebook, but I still don't say anything too controversial on there, or post anything that I wouldn't be happy to be seen in public.
If you do that then no issue.
If you make loads of posts about how shit your jobs is, what a **** you boss is, and how your latest affair is going then really you are asking for trouble 🙂Posted 7 years ago
Am I just being paranoid or require a tin foil hat.
Especially after reading an article on Mark Zuckerberg.
Is it worth it ?

I get the pi$$ taken out of me as I don't use it but I am kind of private in my nature.
I might do it for networking and catching up on old uni pals but I have their emails/mobile numbers.
I resisted for years, till I realised recently that most of my mates are distant now, yet they all still knew what each other was doing through Facebook, but I didn't have a clue. I called up one of my mates for a beer and got no response, only to be told by the others: "Duh, he's in Egypt. Haven't you seen his photos on Facebook?"
I think it genuinely does help you stay in touch with folk, probably in a more intimate way than just email or mobile (how many mates would actually call or email you to tell you the kind of trivia that gets posted on status updates?)
But it does have to be used with some care!Posted 7 years agoCregMember
I recommend watching the Facebook SouthPark episode (Season 14, forget which episode – can watch directly online from comedy central webby).
I swear last week I was actually living Stan's life from that episode (called "You have 0 friends"). I booted some people off my friends list and anyone would have thought I have just run over their dog…talk about a shitstorm 😕
"So you've deleted me off Facebook, does this mean you hate me?"
"No, because Im still talking to you, hence us sitting here having coffee"
Very close to deleting my account. It was lightly entertaining at first but now I can't be bothered with it anymore.Posted 7 years ago
total scaremongering amongst the tech journalists
To be fair, until this blew up even my techies friends were unaware that if I used any Facebook application or pressed a 'Like' button on a website then I could then be sharing THEIR personal details as well as my own.Posted 7 years agoCountZeroMember
There's probably less about my personal life on my Facebook pages than anywhere else. I use it to keep in touch with people who are spread around, and to post up photos. I find it most useful for keeping up to date with what various bands and musicians are doing, the iPhone app version is much better than Myspace for that. There's no requirement to post every tiny detail of your life; if you do and then get all paranoid about privacy, well sorry, but it's your own fault.Posted 7 years ago
I avoid posting anything on facebook, myspace, reverbnation (or anywhere else where I promote my band) during the hours when I'm at work.
I never directly or indirectly mention the company I work for, or the people I work with, on facebook, or anything that I've done, said or had said/done to me, while at work.
I have never posted my bank details or my home address or home phone number on any of these sites. Common sense really.
I use Facebook/Myspace/Reverbnation almost entirely for promoting my band. And finding out what my friends are up to. spooky that, innit?Posted 7 years ago
