So now perhaps people will understand why I didn’t want to hand all my personal details over to Facebook

If you sign up to Facebook you agree to giving Facebook rights to every single thing you put on there. I didn’t like the sound of that so I have never joined, and even though a few friends have tried to make me feel like a social pariah I don’t care. Now I feel vindicated because I know for sure that I’m not one of the 50 million or so whose personal data have been passed around. Maybe now they’ll understand why I didn’t rush to join the flock.

Well done you. I'm not on FB either. Today at the bank we had to give permission for certain details to be shared with certain other parties but sometimes you have no option but to do as you're asked or you can't move forward. We were simply trying to close an account.

It doesn't matter to me. I do not have so much personal data on there and it is a great way for me to keep in touch with the online friends i have made through the years and my actual friends from the states and just posted my page for my book of poems so it is something I need right now.

I played scrabble on line and was vexed, because if I made a mistake, for example, if I played too fast and posted exampel I'd lose the points and the turn. I found out there was a Scrabble on Facebook which rejected misspelled words and let you try again. I joined facebook using a defunct email address, and using a nick and my image of a sloth and nothing else. I played Scrabble. People I knew... that is people I have coffee with asked and I told them my nick and friended them. We toss jokes and articles we liked and I block people I don't know who annoy me. I've warned others, but alas. I am on Facebook but I doubt I'm one of the 50 M. As what are they going to pass around?
@Fleura Besides my name and email address I have not given any details. It is murder if they give out our email addresses. Will myLot and various other sites where they have our email addresses give away our email addresses too? It will be as bad as that. Also those Apps too walk away with a lot of info.
