8. Don't friend people you don't know. I constantly get requests from people I don't know, and I feel like the person using the account is just trying to get my info.

currently there seems to be a glitch with the birthday... there is option to create a list, of say personal friends, or trusted... which you would want them to know your birthday for example...

but editing the privacy and letting only your trusted friends see your birthday and not displaying birthday on your profile means nobody sees your birthday... which is fault of facebook...

3. if facebook would fix there mess, you could potentially only give your closest friend and relatives private info, the issue with that is if they have info or options that might show to others :/ and someone could fish your info through there "friends connection"

which is sad IMO, i think you can go into details on editing privacy but it takes a while and i doubt that even 1/4 (techy) of ppl will bother

P.S. enforce all the granular settings in privacy (only friends, etc). It used to be that if you did not, others who weren't allowed to see your profile could still see your pictures if the permissions were (allow everyone). If you use notes like a blog, and want it semiprivate, enforce such too, because notes were by default, open to the public.

Sadly, changing the privacy options no longer has any effect in reality, and nothing that you post there will ever truly go away even if you change it.

Best bet is don't even go there.

I had a facebook account, I created it for college. It had all my info in it and was set to private. I forgot the password then about a year later the school changed there email system. Still not worried I left it. Then Facebook opened up all users to public unless you reset it. My account is now free for everyone to see and I cann't do anything about it.

Report it as an invalid name and/or hacked.

i love facebook stalking, so many artards let friends of friends access all the info on their page, i dont even use my real name on fb, and so many people will accept anyone who sends them a friend request...

11. Do not "like" every damn thing you see on your news feed.
12. If Michael Jackson added you, remove your kid photos ASAP!
13. There is a "Logout" button available in facebook, use it.

So do all these comments mean nobody on Tom's wants to be my friend? Ugh, heartbroken.

Oh well, this quote helped a little: "so many artards"

I don't understand #4. Why is it bad if your kid's name is on face book? Who cares if somebody sees their photo and knows their name. How is that a bad thing?
