I was just at another card making site. The site is relatively new, and looks like it would be fun to join. On this site, like on so many other card making sites, they want you to use Facebook.
I used to use FB, until I found out people I didn't know were seeing my private photos of my grandchildren. My grandchildren live in a large city, and I worry about their safety. I also worry about the safety of my daughter-in-law, who works in a mall and frequently has to close the store, and leave, all alone, after dark, and walk to her car. (There have been times when she has been scared because some strange people are sometimes out there). People I didn't know were seeing photos of her too.
I found out later , that at the time, every time anyone played those games, or checked their horoscopes, or any of the other things that used to pop up, they released my information to all of their friends, even though mine was private.
Sometimes people tell me that things have changed on there, but I don't trust FB, and I'll tell you why.
I am on a focus group for a company which offers a product that millions of people use to keep themselves secure. Being on the focus group means that I can't tell you the name of the company. I'm really not supposed to give this many details, but I'm going to because it bothers me so much.
A few months ago, one of the discussions was that FB wanted this company to send everyone who had an FB account's exact locations of their vehicles as status updates on FB. Do you have any idea how much this would affect people's safety, the safety of their children, and the safety of their homes from burglars???
Think about it. If FB would want companies to do that, can you really trust them?
