Tr0mBoNe: The only winning move is not to play.

Whatever happened to the novel idea of, oh I don't know, not using Facebook?!?!?
"But everyone else -"
Exactly. Bunch of f'ing lemmings.
Then they have the nerve to be surprised when someone knows everything about them.

Interestingly, in one of my classes we asked a bunch of first year college students where they went for news and information

A couple of web sites, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, etc.  When I asked about Facebook they just sort of shrugged- it really wasn't a big thing with them.  It's for old people now- the place where you put up a picture so your grandma can see it.

garandman1a: I've avoided facebook due to the privacy concerns, but have recently considered biting the bullet and joining. I'm an oldish (55 year old) widower with very few friends, and it seems facebook might be the only way to find friends from long ago.

Anyone have any constructive suggestions or comments?

Get out of the house and go where people are?

I deleted my account years ago and don't miss it one bit. It was a bit odd at first as checking it daily had become a habit but you grow out of it quick. With that said, someone has your data if you own a smartphone. Regardless if it Google, Apple, MS, or Amazon, there is someone out there that has quite a bit of personal information on you.

That is a hard game to play, and I know there are ways to turn on Google/Apple services to do less tracking but it would be hard to live without a smartphone these days (for me). I wish that wasn't the case but it is.
