    Thank You! No one is forcing anyone to put information on the net you don't want. Just because there is a space for your phone number or birthday or whatever, it doesn't mean you have to fill it in. smh...

    It's a world filled with people looking to point the finger elsewhere instead of taking responsiblity for their own actions.

    I'll bump this thread instead of makin another but this is another REAL GOOD reason not to use FB or put you're personal experiences online!!

    http://blogs.forbes.com/kashmirhill/...r-seven-years/

    Last week, the Federal Trade Commission gave a stamp of approval to a background check company that screens job applicants based on their Internet photos and postings. The FTC determined that Social Intelligence Corp. was in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. This means a search of what you’ve said or posted to Facebook/Twitter/Flickr/blogs and the Internet in general may become a standard part of background checks when you apply for a job.

    No big deal, right? You already knew that employers were Googling you. I argued this was actually better, because Social Intelligence has to make sure its clients inform job applicants if they took adverse action based on something found on the Internet. That way you can delete and change privacy settings accordingly.

    But there’s a wrinkle. If something job-threatening pops up on Facebook or Flickr or Craigslist in a search of you, Social Intelligence puts it into your file — and it stays there for seven years.
    Check out these pictures of what they will look like:

    Yeah...apply some common sense when you post stuff. Lets use another example..that guy from JackAss...proudly tweeting/posting pictures of himself consuming alcohol before climbing into his Porsche with a friend and crashing off the road at over 100mph. "Way to be a roll model to male teens...yeah!"

    Some people just don't think! Don't blame the products..such as Facebook or Twitter...blame the lack of the persons ability to censor their own actions....aka "use your head".

    This is true. Even the most educated people don't use their head. I mean look at the most recent event with "the" Congressman who posted his hard-on on Twitter. I still don't comprehend it. (I know one of you are going to say he didn't use the right head! )

    Not the hammers fault...if it hit me...it's my right hands fault for incorrect aim or swing. The fault still comes back to me.

    But had you not had to use the hammer in the first place it still wouldn't have been a issue.

    Nah, that doesn't work. I need something to pound something else into yet another thing. If I don't have a hammer...I'll find something else like a rock. But at least I won't be afraid to pick it up and use it. I refuse to not be able to get something I need or want....no sense in hiding my head in the sand.

    Good point. Hammers should be illegal.

    It is a common and valid argument that the tool is not to blame. Still, some folks should not use point objects.

    Apparently, "Anonymous" won't be accepting your friend request.

    Members of the shadowy collective known for its politically motivated Web hacks and attacks are targeting Facebook for what they claim to be the social-networking giant's misuse of personal information.

    "Your medium of communication you all so dearly adore will be destroyed," the speaker said in a YouTube video, which was posted July 16 but started circulating widely this week.

    Using a voice modulator to disguise his (or her) voice, the speaker, who purports to represent Anonymous, invites viewers to "join the cause and kill Facebook for the sake of your own privacy."

    "Everything you do on Facebook stays on Facebook regardless of your privacy settings, and deleting your account is impossible," the speaker says. "Even if you delete your account, all your information stays on Facebook and can be recovered at any time."
    http://www.youtube.com/user/FacebookOp

    The video also makes the unsubstantiated claim that Facebook has been selling user information to government agencies and giving it to security firms so they can spy on people.

    A Facebook spokesman declined comment Tuesday on the alleged Anonymous plot.

    But the site has repeatedly said it doesn't sell information and doesn't share user information with any third parties that the user hasn't approved.
