Use it for a while and you'll find out.
Or use it to its full potential against someone and realise they could do it back.......

Yes, I have one, and its so totally removed from who I really am that I don't see the point. Mainly to laugh at other people.....

Not exactly a conspiracy theory, but I do know for a fact a lot of companies are searching MySpace, FaceBook, etc. for job applicants as part of the hiring process. If anything turns up they remotely don't like gets the job application tossed out.

Exactly why I maintain only one service similar to facebook and it is military related and can only be viewed by people I have allowed to view it. Hooray for privacy!

You might not be aware that it's perfectly possible to set your facebook privacy settings just like this?

Yes, but the difference is, I consider sites like facebook and myspace to be pure evil. Even more so than our beloved admin's cat, Saffron.

I agree that myspace is evil, but that's a combination of no more than three things:
1) most pages there look like throwup from a early-nineties HTML editor.
2) there's too many XxXcoreXxX cluetards.
3) it sucks smiley

On the other hand, I find facebook to be pretty useful. Be conscious of who you add as a friend, stay away from the applications, and apply some sane privacy settings - presto. My family and real-life friends are scattered across Denmark, so it's a pretty convenient way of keeping in touch with people. I've gotten back in touch with people that I haven't seen for a while... and finally, it's so much easier being up-to-date with what happens (concerts, events, ...) in my city through "hive mind" of status updates and event invitations than having to check several other sites.

If I was the kind of person that called in sick to go drinking, I'd probably stay away from FaceBook... but I'm not and I don't smiley

So I'm not alone in thinking that. Thank you! The first thing that comes to mind whenever I for some reason visit a MySpace site is "what the ... were they thinking!?"

I rather like FaceBook, though embarassed

Maybe I'm a minority here but I like Facebook.  A great way to keep up with friends and family that live nowhere near me. I like the connection I feel to them.  Just set some privacy stuff, don't join every cause, don't allow every application and only friend people you know and it can be a pretty positive experience.

I never understood hating for the sake of hating.

The issue with conspiracy theories like this believing that any organization needs YOU to actually do extra stuff (sign up for facebook, etc.) to find out a lot about you. Daily lives activity reveals so much more valuable (for 'them') information ...credit card usage, debit card usage, phone calls, etc.

And then there's all the wonderful datamining they can do with Carnivore. And don't bother with the wikipedia entry on Carnivore, it doesn't have much to do with the real system - and that's all I'm saying about that Cool

Oh, but they are not, Josh. Sites like Facebook and Myspace are the greatest inventions of the new millennium and I'll tell you why. What with AOL's recent huge decline on the digital landscape sites like Facebook are perfect corrals to keep the mouth-breathers busy forwarding stuff to others and playing those silly little games which means less time they'll have to fill my email inbox full of mindlessly forwarded crap junk email.

Sites like Myspace and Facebook are like the Chuck E Cheeses of the internet.  smiley

Daily lives activity reveals so much more valuable (for 'them') information ...credit card usage, debit card usage, phone calls, etc.

While this is of course all true the average company does not have the ability to access anyone's phone bills or credit card statements. At least in America, jumping through legal hoops with warrants and such to obtain such information.

However, taking a potential applicant's name and plugging it into Google or whatever only takes a minute. And believe me, this is not a conspiracy theory. Companies are using everything at their disposal when it comes to human resources.

And if I had a nickel for every story I've read about someone getting fired because of something they posted on their Myspace or Facebook page...

I think checking on employees is different from conspiracy theories and it's sometimes even a pseudo-official function of HR.

When I say credit cards for example it is a fact that your data is available for use, your buying patterns are collected and mined in the same way any other behavioural data is. Those kind of data are even sometimes used in places like university research labs. Sitting on top of that data is what you actually bought and when and where. And while personal details may be stripped before legitimate use (if anonymous research is considered legitimate) they are readily available without requiring any extra effort from you.

If you do moronic things, then...
  • don't add your boss or coworkers on facebook
  • set sane privacy settings
...and problem is solved.

Yes, you can block friends on Facebook.
Go here.
This FB help page has all the info & instructions.

If that page changes and the link doesn't work, just click help at the bottom right corner of your screen.
Then, click on the 'Friends' link, then there will be another link titled, "Blocking Friends".

HTH  smiley !
