Everyone knows FB is invasive and sweeps up everything it can about everyone. But it's not the only thing to do this, try the Woolworths reward card and see how it compares. Trying to keep private in today's world is becoming harder. The particular skill that FB has developed is to mine people's information in such a way that it can sell it to the Woolworths of the world.
And if FB causes you problems, try staying clear of anything that Google owns. Everything you do there gets agglomerated and sorted and used for whatever new purpose they can come up with. I've seen special interest groups go from communicating on the early bulletin boards, then to forums like this, and then to FB. I don't like the move as the format of FB does not work for me because of dyslexia, but there are groups I'm a part of that have left the forum world and have no other communication than FB. I rarely post to any of them but if I'm to keep up with what's happening I have to check in regularly - and I still miss stuff. I can only vaguely remember seeing FB links on this forum anyway and as much as FB frustrates me, I can't see the point of stopping it in the future. FB also owns Instagram and Twitter, both of which you use for your motorbike diary. Are you going to delete those accounts?
In protest of these deceptive practices, I will be deleting my facebook account.
