has invaded my life

December 2, 2009 2:21am CST
does any one else think that although entertaining and fun facebook has become invasive of their life? i used to go about my daily routine shopping, visit friends etc not bothering about who saw me or what i did whilst out :-) now i fear my life will be broadcast on facebook. for example my friend went out the other night even though she said she wasn't i know this because of the pictures on another friends profile, and one yet another friends profile it said relationship changed four times in one day lol, do i actually need to know this? will it soon be reported on there when i sneeze? does any one else agree that facebook has invaded their life or have i finally hit paranoia lol.

I think maybe you may be over reacting just a bit. Though if it really does bother you that bad, maybe you should ask your friends to remove the pictures. If they don't that's their right. Though Facebook is no different from any other social website. In the fact its designed to share and connect and make the world a smaller place. If you don't want something displayed on the web, it is your right to not have it posted.... but that's only by you. if your friends want to that's their right. However, you don't have to worry about your privicey being invaded. You don't have to post, share, or say anything you don't want repeated. there is no reason to fear the net.

i have no fear of the net and never overreact to things on the web my point is that facebook and the rest of the sites have fed peoples nosy side and invaded peoples lives making us stay inside instead of going out and meeting new people, i myself have friends on there i have never met, and due to distence never will but i have known them over 3 years now so in some ways its a good thing, but mostly it has taken away the personal aspects of actually meeting new people.

LOL. I think myspace is much worse on this issue. It is called drama and places where we can socialize tend to bring more attention to the drama in our lives and other peoples lives. Yes we are coming do a day when privacy is rare.

Way I see it, privacy is based on how much you want someone to know about your life. If you add pictures or comments, they are open to the public, unless you keep your site private. By private I mean only the people that you invite as friends can see what you post. Ihave noo problem with whatever I post because only certain people can see it. But any time that you post personal information on the web it is subject to getting into the wrong hands. I play canasta and there is a woman that sits all day and watches the lobby for any statement that she can screen shot, twist and put on her site to make fun of people or their kids. She recently went into facebook through another person and took pictures and posted them on another site. Had that person had her account private, she could not of gotten any farther than the profile page and that shows nothing. She would have to be nvited by you to see more. So it isn't that facebook has invaded our lives,it is us that decides what info we want our friends and family to see.
