Well I say kudos to Facebook; men have been attempting to plug the chat hole since time immemorial.

Misappropriating a really old joke about AOL is cruise control for cool.

Now boarding all self important douches who want to declare how lame Facebook, Twitter and other social media is with additional statements about how they have never have and will never participate in it.

Folks working with personally identifiable information need to figure out that it's simply not enough to quickly respond to an easily-discovered bug - if it was that easy to find after rollout, it should've been caught long before rollout by thorough testing.

It'll only take one screw-up, at the right time, to turn Facebook into a divine, tasty school of virtual smelt, ripe for devouring by data sharks.

Well, so much for my cybersex sessions on there...

Facebook security = deleting your facebook account.

Facebook security = buying out Facebook and shutting it down forever

I'm OK with this.

Facebook Security = You not trying your best to show incriminating information to everyone on the internet.

I have a Facebook, but I get really pissed at the technical problems and utter BS that goes on there, and the only reason I stay on is to download pictures of my female friends for future fap material. Does that count?

When friends and relatives ask me why in the world I am NOT on Facebook, I just roll my eyes.

// I've got a bunch of my own web sites on my own servers plus I'm on YouTube.

For a limited period of time, a bug permitted some users' chat messages and pending friend requests to be made visible to their friends by manipulating the 'preview my profile' feature of Facebook privacy settings

Oh my god, people you already marked as your friends can see your pending friend requests and chat messages! And this is a temporary hole in security!

FACEBOOK IS RUINED FOREVER.

Oh now, now I can no longer have secrets after posting them on Facebook

This is why I'm a 73 year old woman who likes NASCAR, Shintoism, 1,000,000 Strong for Rabies Shots, and "I hate the guy who orders for the whole office at Subway."

Throw them off the scent as much as possible.

/yeah, i use my real name, so I probably can't throw them off.

Over the last week I randomly get this screen all the time saying I need to verify the stuff I like. How dumb is that? I mean, I like pizza, but why do I need to join a pizza fan page to do so? I really don't want to join the pizza fan page, but I'm not going to say I don't like pizza because of it. Why should I change because Facebook sucks now? I just close the facebook tab and still like my pizza. Maybe I'll tweet about it. At least I don't have to release all my personal information to become someone's follower.

We are Web 2.0; you will be indexed. Resistance is futile.
