Do you take those silly FaceBook personality quizzes?

You see them in your news feed all the time, either as a suggested post or a friend share. Some of the sites are; Nametests.com, Vonvon, APost.com among others. You have to login to facebook to play them. They are not quizzes at all, but just give you an answer based on your friends and activity. This is one way Facebook gives away your information, for why else would such posts exist on facebook. Do you play these personality quizzes or just ignore them when they pop up?

No, I never play these quizzes. But there's a function on facebook and you can hide the quiz site from your news feed. I used it a lot when everyone played that Farm game and shared it on the news feed.

I have not been on FB for 6 years. I did find FB too time-consuming, and yes, rather silly. Glad some folks still enjoy FB, though.

I don't do those for that very reason. In fact, I do very little on Facebook except read content posted by my family and friends. I recently looked up the data Facebook has on me and was very pleased to see that they had my fake name, no location, no personal information, very few interests and those were only because I "liked" a couple of posts. The main thing they had was when I accessed the site daily or weekly. Those info thieves got nothing from me!

I did. For fun. But then l found out it’s not at all fun when bad people get your information.

I always ignore them as well figuring they are just looking to get private information as you have said.

No I don't see those but I like the trivia quizzes or the type that ask if if you remember people from the 60s/70s. Those are my favourite type.

I used to do that. I do not participate in any of them anymore. It was through one of those personality tests that Analytica stole information about thousands or maybe millions of users. I am so angry. I only use it now for checking friends and relatives and some groups I am on. No more of those other things, no matter what they call them.

I have done a few and they might even be interesting, but each question takes another page load, so it takes forever to do them. I haven't done one in a long while, I'm sure the information is taken for some reason.

I am not on FB so often. I get on about once a day just to check up on friends and my FB page and then I do other things.
