I've never had anything at all to do with Facebook. I've never had any account there because I know that they own you, own everything you've given them, everything you post, if you join their site.

Those of you who enjoy it, good luck. Good luck getting a divorce. Good luck when you discover that all your community property and everything else is owned by them.

I'm so happy I've never been a member, ever. They don't own a single piece of me.

Did you lose money Roadfix? I heard that FB was the most disappointing and unprofitable IPO in the last 10 years, after 1 week on the market. I haven't heard after the 1 week report if they turned around...

That depends on your definition of own. You still hold the copyright. They can use the content, depending on your privacy settings. They had stricter rules about that when I signed up. Yes, I was an early adopter. Doesn't mean I like it.

Facebook changes their privacy policy more often than most of us change our underwear.

I think you mean privacy policy. The privacy settings are what I decide to share.

My eyes must not be focusing correctly. I can't see the difference between what I said and what you said.

So post your privacy settings here. You share that, right? Share it. :)

greg, in real as well as legal terms, what you decide to post (or in some way input in any way) is the property of the place you entered it plain and simple. it an't yours anymore.

Privacy policy is what Facebook decides.

Privacy settings is what I decide: My posts are only visible to my friends, my contact information is only visible to some friends, my date of birth is only visible to me, etc.
