I keep up with family and friends and play games too Andy. I'm of much the same opinion as you seem to be. Use your brain and don't post too much stuff about yourself. My permissions are intentionally set very high because of the population I work with. There have been many attempts by the kids I work with to "find" me on FB and guess what? They can't get in to my FB account, but they can find me on DC quite easily. Oops.

All of you who think you are so security conscious and feel that FB is too loosey goosey might want to rethink that a bit. Go over all your posts and see how much you've actually shared on here. I could find most of you pretty easily with some basic searching. (Not to scare you, but just to point this out)

Nothing to do with security for me...but dodging my Sister and a couple others on FB was too much of a chore.

No, not so much you PF, but others have mentioned "big brother" etc. If you're honestly worried about being "found" then you'd better be more worried about Google than FB.

Giggling a bit about dodging the sister on FB. I have my "chat" function disabled so folks can't always see when I'm online. Its tough to play my scrabble turns when folks are messaging me! Ah...first world problems.

I'm very happy that I'm not one of the lemmings who followed the tail of the lemming in front of me to swim into the ocean and drown.

The problem with the Internet, with any site, is that once you've said it you can't un-say it.

If I can delete about 3-5 posts here on DC I'll appreciate if the moderators could let me know if that's okay and I'll tell you which ones. Yeah, I guess not. And DC is not FB.

At least I know my cooking and recipes will never come back to haunt me.

Oh so true Greg. I think that's pretty much my point.

From what I've seen, you don't do too much cooking because your stuff is all put away. Or did I miss something?

Over the years, I have often thought that I should keep lists of all the personal details people share here and see how complete a profile I could create. I never did. Some of you are very open in sharing personal details and it's available to anyone who finds this site.

I am by nature a private person who doesn't share personal information easily. Fear of internet bad guys makes me even more cautious.

I joined FB in 1997. I hate it. I'm trying to get my friends to switch to Google+. But, I would miss party and other social get together invitations if I quit. sigh

Andy, I think I have become too comfortable here and anyone who really wanted to could find me easily. Its a good thing I was sort of inept when I tried to place myself on our DC map. I missed by a mile.

Heck. I'm in the phone book...a lot of you know my real first name. I just make sure I don't post anything I am ashamed of.

I figured out how to get out of FB. Up in the right hand corner is access to "Your Account". I can't remember what I did, but I was looking at different parts and came across where you can 'quit' FB. YEA! I am out of FaceBook. Now if anyone wants to contact me, they can email me.
