Personally I'm a little careful what I put on my facebook even though I only use it for close friends and family. I guess I only put on there things I would like the whole world to know, in case there is some way the whole world could find out! It is so easy for people to get infomation about you if they really want it so I'm not to paranoid about having a prescence on facebook. What would be the most personal things you would put on there?

With the way the world is today I take a why worry approach to some aspects of life. Sure it's important to be safe, but not to the point you're making yourself sick over it. I have very limited personal information on there, information that in all respects is public record such as city state country of ouragn. Age, birthdate and relationship status. Thease things I don't consider to be too "personal" seeing as anyone could look them up if they had my real name. I also have my IM contact info which isn't what I consider "personal" because its my choice to have it. Someone who has a lot to hide is most likely lying about who they are. Or, they are that paranoid, that they have no real business being online. So what do they have to be overly concerned over?

I don't actually use facebook, but my husband does and I am continually surprised by the things he learns about people we know just from viewing their facebook page. Like you do, if I used facebook, I would only put things on there that I wouldn't care if the whole world knew. The reason I don't use facebook is not that I'm paranoid about putting my information out there though. I'm just not interested in making public everything I do. I communicate through texts, emails, and picture sharing sites like snapfish. Maybe someday I'll join facebook, but I don't think I would be very good about updating my page.

I don't like to put much at all as not long ago someone pointed out to me how easy it is to set up a false identity...gee I can myself into enough trouble myself without someone else adding to it... I think it is a bit dangerous putting full name and birthdate...
