facebook is a centralized database about you. and all your friends. and your interactions with your friends. facebook owns the rights to your photos.

the first place the cops go digging for information on you is facebook.

have a nice day... suckers.

The comments above are all asinine.

1) Facebook is nothing like AOL. It is not a bloated, expensive, and slow method of connecting to the internet.

2) The only women you will "meet" through Facebook are the ones that cost money and come in the mail from Russia.

3) Facebook only stores the information YOU provide.

4) Facebook does not own your photos, read the privacy agreement, dumbass.

5) The cops have no access to Facebook other than what you make publicly available.

LOL....especially those asking for login and password information, or those from Marcus and Tuan asking for users to judge their "performance" recorded during the Tom's Karaoke Night this past Saturday (shivers)...Nice Keving, Nice.

I worry that somehow future archaeologist will discover the facebook records and think that it's an accurate judge of our society

Accurate judge of society is right.
1. pictures of college kids getting crunked [check]
2. microblogging about every detail of your boring life [applies to some]

P.S. Facebook does NOT hand over information to the police 'if they but only ask', unless there is a case involved ie, they warrant the information. Facebook does not have to do anything for them, it's a courtesy, and the Facebook group is comprised of normal human beings who would be glad to provide assistance in circumstances of helping solve a case/stop bullying. They don't want to end up like myspace and their cyber-bullies :p

I'm detecting there are a few different types of folks on the internet.

1) The folks who complain about every new technology being a violation of their privacy
2) The folks who willingly and ignorantly share all of thier personal information with strangers on their buddy list
3) The educated individuals who understand technology always comes with pros & cons, and most things in your life are so mundane that the only people who benefit from it are criminals

You need to be a real idiot to fall for these kind of traps. The only real advice on the internet is don't trust anybody.

Amen.
Technology and the internet are wonderful things.
However, as I have heard before...

I agree, IMO the first assumption you make when posting anything on the net is that there's nothing private about it. ANYONE that posts something and assumes it's private... well... lets just say that it's not very smart.

Yes, but what makes you think the same isn't true with what they dig up today? Science is replete with abarations like this.

well, what do you expect when you just through all of your personal information out to some random web server that also happens to be one of the most well known and biggest repositories of personal information that isn't owned/secured by the government?
