I haven't like facebook from the first time I checked it out. I already felt like I was too exposed. This just confirms my feelings, and gives me another reason to deffend myself when people ask me why I don't have a profile.

Hmmm. This definitely gives me food for thought. As a teacher, FB gives me another way to communicate with students as a real person. But, I don't like what I just read about FB privacy.

Yup. Not a fan of all this. I've been annoyed with FB every time they send me a new message about how this or that is now public information. Not sure what to do about it except maybe not share anything I don't want up on the entire Internet. As a blogger, I'm already posting quite a lot of rather personal stuff, and probably FB deserves the same scrutiny I give my blog.

Ha! I read this yesterday, and went right ahead and read the article. i was so steaming that I never came back here to comment. This really really makes me want to quit fb!!!! Thanks for sharing!

Go to your fb homepage.
Click "Edit My Profile" (under your name on top left).
Click "privace settings" (in blue on bottom of left column).
Go thru every single thing.

I was amazed at how visible I was, by default. I mostly prefer to just lurk invisibly and watch my progeny!!

Wow, I knew facebook had changed some stuff (and as a result I had to delete all my activites, movies, books etc.) but this is even worse--I didn't know my statuses could be broadcast to the whole internet!!! Makes me think about leaving FB altogether. Thanks for the infO!

Yikes. I don't have FB, and I'll be steering clear.

Ruby said...

Yes, that's a worry. I am on FB. Will ponder these things. Thanks.
