Regarding photos of people engaging in sex, anything pornographic gets removed by the facebook moderating staff. And yes, apparently they do have a staff that monitors that type of activity. I know people who have even had cartoons removed that were too suggestive in nature.

Regardless, it still comes back to being smart about what you post, though.

It is true, they do remove "inappropriate" things. A guy I know always posted sexual pictures (cartoons) to his wife and they gave him a warning about that. (which he posted about after the fact )

In regards to work/ FB they can and do check your FB profile. I personally know of one girl who was fired from my company. Three other girls ultimately quit but was in trouble over things they wrote about their co- workers/ the company.

I would have no problem with a prospective boss seeing my Facebook page, but I would have a problem with them wanting my password. I'm glad to see that company lost the suit about that.

Whenever I post anything on Facebook (which is about every 3 seconds, LOL), I keep in mind that my grandchildren, other children, friends from church, husband, and friends may see whatever I have posted. That is how I try to live my life in public anyway, so Facebook is no different. If I wouldn't say something out on the street in front of people, I would not say it on Facebook.

I do have friends who sometimes post mean things about their husbands or wives when they are mad, but I keep stuff like that just between James and me. For one thing, it is no one else's business, and when it is put out where everyone can see it, it can grow into something really ugly. Also, James is looking for work, and it wouldn't help matters any if a prospective employer found hateful posts about James from his own wife!

A lot of young people (and some older) are learning the hard way that they have to watch what they put out there for the world to see. It is a new age, not like it was when I was young and there were no Internet or cell phones.

There is stuff I'm willing to say to someone's face that I wouldn't write. Face to face misunderstandings can be straightened out right away. Stuff you write can come back to haunt you.

while it's a nice idea and works pretty well in general, having only nice things to say is disingenuous. there comes a point where everyone blowing sunshine up your skirt is sickening. quintessentially so.

lollllloooooooo

But it's a balancing act.

I am finding that it is one more infringement on my freedom and privacy. Sometimes if people message you they expect something back reguardless of the topic. If you haven't gotten around to it, or haven't figured out a response, or just plain don't want to, you have some explaining to do because they can tell if you have been on or not. Just like cell phones. Loss of freedom. I no likey. I have been toying with dropping facebook for that reason. But, I also use it for messaging my kids and I do have some friends on there that I do enjoy talking to and reading about...

I've had that problem too. I don't want to interrupt somebody's dinner in a restaurant or some meeting or something. Used to be, you call their home phone number, the answering machine would do its job, if they were home and didn't mind being interrupted they could pick up.

These days somehow people seem to have the expectation they must answer, leaving me in the situation of having to apologize for interrupting them.

Cellphones should have an answering function that you can listen to the message and then pick up if it's important.
