Facebook is Not Your FriendPosted: March 9, 2012
Many people ask me when I’m going to get a Facebook account. Never. Facebook is not your friend. With Facebook, you are not the customer, you are the product. There is no privacy. Anything you say, post, or link to is theirs to use as they see fit. In fact, if you neglect to sign out of Facebook before leaving their site, they can see where you go on the web and what you’re doing. They give the appearance of giving you control over your privacy settings, but unless you are diligent, you are “opted in.”
Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook, cheated his friends and co-developers out of their fair share of the company (have you seen The Social Network?), and now he wants to use you. Don’t let him. Be aggressive in monitoring your privacy settings.
