I don't regret registering, but my #1 priority is: DO NOT POST EVERYTHING I DO ON IT NOR POST PRIVATE INFORMATION!
otherwise, it's ok.

Dude, information posted is out of your hands. Get used to that. Is like opening a can of worms.

Chill on the FB hate. It's a social network for talking to your friends en masse. It's useful to some, useless to others. If you upload all your private info to it (which isn't even necessary) then it's your problem. You don't NEED to give your birthday, your freaking address and upload photos of yourself that people can use to blackmail you. Those are idiotic decisions made by stupid users. FB itself is an excellent platform for networking, especially if you have friends all over the world and in such a scenario, FB is way more convenient than e-mail.

I was watching an episode of Penn and Teller's Bullshit! on teen sex the other day and they had a man on there that they ridiculed because he goes to schools around the country and teaches kids about how dangerous the online world can be. He noted in particular the dangers from having naked pics on your facebook and sexting. Did you know that if your 15 and you take a naked picture of your own naked body you and anyone else you send it to can be charged as a child pornographer?

They ridiculed him for teaching these classes, but you can really mess up your life if you're not careful with your facebook account. I don't just mean the embarrassment suffered from your whole social circle seeing your naked pics, but legal consequences as well, and I think kids and everyone else should be educated about that.

I don't give a monkeys about Facebook's lack of privacy because I'm not retarded enough to actually post anything of importance or significance.

Even if I did have a life, I have night inclination to document every aspect of it. The only personal item on there is my phone number and that's because I mainly use Facebook for *shock* networking.

Information posted is out of my hands, but is up to me to post whatever I want to do, I've seen people that even post their mailing address, is that out of my hands? yes it's info they decided to post, some even put their phone #'s some for business and others....don't know why,but I won't do it with mine, and that's my point.is up to each person to post whatever they see fit to post, I just don't see necessary to post everything there, there is no need to.

No. I joined Facebook in my Fall 2005 semester and enjoyed it thoroughly. With every update I like it less, but it lets me keep in contact with friends and family easily, and have even reconnected with some people I haven't seen in years. I stay away from putting too much information on the site, but I feel overall my experience with Facebook as a positive one.
