Don't forget the data mining and other neat little tricks that FB uses on your computer every time you go there. Supposedly they are using tracking software that runs whenever you are online after they get it on your system. Yet another reason I will never go there or repost a link to it.

Oh, crap that's TNDeer.

There is a big difference between the two, real big difference.

Wish I had never got on Facebook, now I only use it to get in touch with certain people and never go there for anything else.

Privacy settings can be set so that no one sees your real email. It is only a bad thing if you make it bad. Personal choice but not everyone on it is a gossip monger. It's not a lot different than here. You choose what you read, you choose what you post and anyone can ignore or be ignored at any time. Heck, you can even set it up so no one can post on your wall.

You could use a fake name and keep up with stuff like bands, products, news etc.

No. It's like the mob. Once you're part of Facebook, there is no escape. They have you for life.

Facebook is uncensored social media. The only censorship comes from the user, not facebook itself. Now, if someone got really bad, maybe facebook would step in, but I'm not sure they would. I have never seen it happen. If you do not like someone and what they post, then you simply unfriend them and they go away from your news feed. YOU decide what you read, not a third party.

Facebook was very instrumental in our all school reunion a couple of years ago. Without it we would never have been able to get the word out so easily and quickly.

Again, if you take the time to work with it, you can make it into whatever you want it to be. But, the most important thing about it is the freedom it gives people to express their feelings without censorship. A principle that this country was founded on.

Oh and yes, deleting an account is simply a pushed button away.....

There are some people who always seem angry and continuously look for conflict.

Walk away; the battle they are fighting is not with you, but with themselves.
