Hey all! I'm new here. I often use facebook to keep in touch with friends, but sometimes I think that there is no privacy in fb! For exemple, they have changed some options and now I'm not allowed to decide which person can add me. I've changed the options which gives me the possibility to receive friends request from "friends of my friends", but... I don't want them to add me.. Do you know how can I solve this problem? Thanks in advance for your advice!

I live on facebook it is the best place to get your business going and you can adjust anything you want in your privacy area ..I have never had any issues with facebook sure they change things but what website or social network don't that is what keeps the place up to date and customer satisfaction, myspace is alright but nothing like facebook I am a member of about 10 social network sites just found one the other day that pays and if your interested send me a message will give you the link. good luck there are alot of good social networks. good luck.

Maybe it's the best social network now, but I'm sure in a few years we'll get an even better one and the same thing will happen over and over. I like facebook and I connect all my online accounts to it (youtube, tumblr, etc) but I don't appreciate that they don't listen to the users that much. I hate that they changed how we can view photos. Before we don't have to look at all the photos to see the ones we want to see, because there are available links to who's tagged in which photos. They removed this option and I hate it! Now they also got rid of the profile boxes. That was one of the few ways you could customize your profile and I don't know why they would take it away _

I think facebook is the best social networks. But it has some drawback. There is no any privacy on facebook. And anybody can visit on any person’s profile and can see pictures, information and also send them a text message. But there are popularity of facebook is very good in all worlds. I am also addicted of this sites and always enjoying on this sites. What about you.

About the privacy of pic/and profile no,I don't have problems because you can set to be "hidden". I have to check my options. I meant that fb keeps your information in the site even if you decide to cancel your account..Isn't good at all..

Well fb is the best social networking site today. And I guess there is pretty much privacy too if you want. You can communicate with your friends via fb messages if you want to keep it private. And well about adding friends and others adding you, go to your account settings, there are many options from which you can select the type of privacy you want. You even can set a privacy which dont allow anyone to add you or message you. Just explore the account setting option of your fb account and you'll get to know how to do it. take care :)

Thank you so much for your message! I'll try to do what you said..but I swear that I did everything. People cannot see me in the search,but bvefore I had the chance to block every freind request. I was the only one who could add person,but now they have changed everything on there.. So,the thing I can do is checking better the options in my account!:)

There's a part in the options where you can disable the friends who can add me. Its on the privacy setting under my account.

maybe i think we use the facebook to make friends with others, and in that way we can add many persons. if you won't to add the strangers, i suggest you can add the ID request. it is a good way.

Yes but there are only two options in my control panel. I can be added by everyone or only by "friends of friends"..Before I could choose "No one can add you as friends"...But there's no problem,because if there's no options I refuse the request of strangers. I use facebook just to stay in contact with real friends there are far from me..

Facebook is the best social network for me. We can costumize the way we want it to be. If that is your problem then you can set your profile to private, allowing only friends see your complete profile. For the friend request, just ignore or reject them. They can do nothing.

As a new member here, I think My Lot is one of the best paying social network sites. Facebook is one of the best social network site but there are dangers lies on it without our knowledge. Imagine, you spent a lot of time using FB but are we earning out of it? Of course no. Here, in my lot you can participate in the discussions and post comment as you want and reward you for doing what you did in FB. Continue to explore the concepts in My Lot and meet new friends here. Happy My Lotting to all of us!

For me FB is the best. I noticed that too that privacy could be at risk, but for me I don't post or broadcast important information and my personal photos and pictures are all in private so that no one could easily copy my personality.

I think we are stuck with FB for right now. There are so many users that it will be hard to get such a large population to move to a different site. With that said I think there will be a better social site that will come our way. And the was FB doesn't pay attention to it's users it might all change some day. Thanks for the great question.
