Wow all the things you have to do to "protect" yourself at FB. You enjoy a site that has so many hoops? Really?

I'm not sure what the poster above means by "hoops". Maybe he or she is thinking about basketball or hula hoops. Hard to tell.

BT, there is a very easy way to block someone. Go to their page and at the top right there is a settings button (it looks like a gear and is next to the Friends & Message button). Click on that and there should be an option to report or block that person. Once you do that, you'll never see that person on FB again, and they will no longer see you either.

Something to keep in mind for your news feed on Facebook is that the people you interact with most tend to be the ones most prevalent in your feed - it's part of FB's algorithm. Also, if you have a ton of friends, chances are high that by the time you check your feed again, all the posts you think aren't showing up have simply been pushed down the feed by newer content. Sometimes going to a person's personal page is just the way you have to do it.

What exactly am I protecting myself from?

I only put information out there that I don't mind being public, it's called being smart online. I do the same for any website that I use, including this one.

I am not afraid of facebook stealing my identity, or soul, I only give them so much to work with.

Nice. I digress, whatever floats your boat.

I have to agree with Bakechef's philosophy. I keep up with friends and family on FB, rarely post anything. DH despises FB, and refuses to join. To each his own.

I do periodically check my settings.

I use Facebook to stay in touch with family, share pictures etc. I have found relatives I didn't know I had, and rekindled relationships with friends and family. A 3rd cousin's wife from the other side of the country found me and shared an Immense amount of genealogy material with me and we had the chance to meet when we were (by chance)both visiting Yellowstone. Facebook is what you make of it. My advise......Keep track of your privacy settings, only share what you feel comfortable with. Block those you don't want contact with and be sure that those who are really your friends are your friends and they know how you feel about games and other requests(those can be quite a pain) ;)

Send a message via Skype™ to taxlady
One less reason to use Facebook: Google+ has just added Events, which is good for party planning. And, Google+ Events will send invitations to people who aren't signed up for Google+, unlike FB. They just can't add comments or photos. They can accept or decline the invitation, so it keeps your list of people coming up to date. w00t!
