Posted:I used to be on facebook, then i saw the light.



Its a place for huge amounts of information gathering as people post all their personal information on there, their addresses, likes, jobs, what they are up to at the weekend, when they are off on holidays etc.



There have been cases of identity theft resulting from the gathering of information off facebook. It has been in the newspapers.



http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/femail/article.html?in_article_id=471321&in_page_id=1879



Along side google, facebook has a very bad privacy policy regards information and for this reason i took myself off it.



If you try to delete your account, you will find there is no option to do this. There is a deactivate account option, but if you go back to the login page and enter your login details, your account will reactivate exactly how you left it when you deactivated.



I went through a long and tedious process of numerous emails between the facebook staff and myself and finally got my account deleted. I have to physically delete everything in my account 1 by 1, all the wall posts, friends, photos etc, which took absolutly ages.



Granted it is good for renewing old friendships and keeping in touch, but at what cost? Personally i dont think its worth it.

Posted:but then you'd have to be rather stupid to put all of your personal information on a site like that with out reading all of the privacy policies and site rules first.

Not a brain scientist... but even that would have been obvious not to do without reading any thing... would you trust any one with that kind of information other than your self?... i doubt it... so why would you post it....

How many people read the rules/terms and conditions before clicking i agree? I would say not that many really. This goes for any terms and conditions for anything you sign up for or any program you install on your computer etc. They are usually way too long and time consuming to read. I know i dont read the whole thing.

Not only is there the possibility that the spinner could grossly disfigure themselves, but there's always the chance it could snap off and cause a cataclysmic chain of events that could end the world as we know it. Maybe."

Oh come on, it's got a bloody group or 10 for everything. Let them play. They're making a group about how horrible and attention-seeking poi is, in an attempt to get attention for their dislike on facebook. *Yawn.*

Posted:Facebook is about as safe as myspace, bebo, zooped etc. All very much of a muchness regards security and the standard of idiots you have frequenting the sites.

These days with the right net and computer knowledge most information is easily obtained ... it's scarey whats out there and what you can find out with only a little research.

As for the Poi group thing - naff 'em. I have mates who are into the same music as me, same sorta stuff, their response when I said I was doing Poi etc - "Poi's only for people in dance clubs where we go ....blahblahblah" cue several IMs, Emails, Blog posts of self-righteous "You can't do poi, it's only for us dance people" tosh.

They then came to rock club again again trying to be all pretentious and going hard-house clubbing to several rather attractive young women and a couple of a-typical heavy metal-esq guys spinning to summat like Tool I think.

I just figured my cohorts didn't have time/patience to learn anything and it was just one of those irrational hatreds people have. I get them too, just I'm on the receiving end this time!

why??? They can still most likely open up credit card accounts in their name and go on big spending sprees, getting the poor uni student into heaps more debt....aside from the crippling student loan..

If any one could open a credit card with some one else's details... you'd still need a signature on the forms.. some one would have to be quite good to copy my squiggle.

Posted:i personally cant be arsed with this thread any longer. I have said what i think and the facts i know about facebook so that people can make their own minds up about whether to join or not, and to simply point out its not all as wonderful as everyone semms to be making it out to be.



As for saying its irresponsible to open a facebook account as Rouge makes out i am implying, well i did not say that at all. Yes it is irresponsible to open 2 credit card accounts, and miss some payments, but i bet a lot of you have one and most of your parents, who have also missed a few of their payments.

To address PK on copying peoples signatures .....why do you think we now have chip and pin?? Too many people were easily copying signatures on found cards and other peoples accounts too easily! If you are applying to open a new account, then you just make a new signature. When i opened mine, they didnt check it against any other signature of mine, which i think they should have.

Posted:Jenster, I think alot of it comes down to common sense.

If you're stupid enough to put your adress and such like on a social networking website then you deserve to be targeted!
Warnings about indentification fraud are pushed in our faces all the time, so you'd have to be living under a rock if you wernt at least somewhat savvy about the whole thing

You obviously have your gripe with facebook, and have done something about it.
Other people enjoy it and do so in a safe manner - let them!
