"Surely ... not moi !
I just shared your message on Facebook. They know you now. They're not happy. You best sleep with one eye open Smile | :)

Seriously though, I signed up for Facebook about a year ago. I never wanted it because I believed you can't "sign up for friendship" and "I really don't need to know what you harvested in Farmville."
I won't say it's the best thing I ever did, because it isn't (signing up on here did my a lot more good!), but it isn't as bad as I thought it would be.
People actually share fun stuff (besides the kittens and cats, which alone make it worth it) like new music and movie releases, political views, and funny comics. And I get invited to parties once in a while Smile | :)
Surely people also share a lot of rubbish (mostly pregnancies, babies, and "I'm a Disney princess! Which princess are you?"), but I just read past that and filter out the good stuff Smile | :)

As for privacy, "they" know all about me already. Google does, my government does, the American government probably does as well, some other websites, including CodeProject, does. Facebook might as well do too (if they didn't already).
Read my (free) ebook Object-Oriented Programming in C# Succinctly.
Visit my blog at Sander's bits - Writing the code you need.
Or read my articles here on CodeProject.
