"Facebook is not your friend" with a strapline that reads, "If you
care about your privacy and that of your real friends, unfriend
Facebook now. We are its product, not its customers"
Guardian - Facebook is not your friend
It links to a New York Times graphic which shows just how comp-
licated it is to control privacy settings on Facebook, and a graphic
over the last 5 years until it's now bigger than the US constitution.
Of course, you could just delete your Facebook account, couldn't you?To manage your privacy on Facebook, you will need to navigate
through 50 settings with more than 170 options.
I'm glad that I don't have a Facebook account.If you decide it isn't worth it, Facebook turns out to be very difficult
to leave. It is very easy to "deactivate" your account, but it's also
almost meaningless. Nothing is deleted by deactivation. If you return
a year later, your account is still there, with the same password, the
same friends and all the same data.
