    just letting everyone know to very careful on facebook, there is a couple nasty viruses out there going around and some one has been hacking into accounts. We got hit with a virus at the library and the last person to be on one of the comp was on facebook. We had some nasty pornographic material popping up, and a couple other patrons that have their own computers have said they also are having the same issue. We blocked face book so no one can get on, not even me :scream:. So far all we had to do was restore ours to an earlier point but some of the other people said it won't work for them.

    Thanks for informing me of this. :flower: We wouldn't want our computers getting sick, now, would we? :icon_puke_r: :chuckle:
    But I am glad you told me, because I have a Facebook account, and visit it regularly. I guess I will wait until I hear that the viruses have disappeared, which might take a long time...

    Yeah, I got rid of facebook a while back after they announced that they would be selling your information. I'm a bit of a privacy nerd, and I don't want people to be able to run a google search on me and find out my friends, etc. I want to make anything that I want to private, even my name. I used to have my settings so that people wouldn't even see me if they searched for me...it was just the way I liked it. But you can't do that now.

    This is one of the reasons I will NEVER get a facebook account!
    I don't think keeping your information a secret makes you nerdy at all,
    its the smartest choice you can make on the internet. That's what I do too.

    You are not a privacy nerd! Nobody I know would want their personal information, (even their friends or hobbies) shared on the internet, for everyone to see them! Facebook sucks! I hate it! They don't care about the people, or respecting them, they care about making money! I hope, in fact I PRAY :hail: , that they get sued soon!

    Whoh! I thought you liked your account. It seems kind of sudden for you to abolish it, although you're definately correct. The other reason I don't like facebook is because it drains people of their lives to be sucked away to
    other poeple who call them "friends". The original point in facebooking was to
    be able to talk to your ACTUAL friends who you met in person, even if they're far away.

    'I' only friend people I actually KNOW, unlike a lot of my friends, who friend random people who send them a request, so they can say, 'I have more friends, than you!' It's pathetic! That random person, who refers/calls you a 'friend', could be a dangerous person who is pretending to be a kid! And Facebook doesn't even care! They could careless about anyone's safety. They just wanna make bucks. Well, they're about to get the OPPOSITE of what they wanted in the first place! They're gonna start LOSING bucks, and hopefully get sued, so HA! In your face, Facebook!

    I have facebook cause it is the only way I can reach my brother other than phone, I use it at home, the library has a facebook to.. I think it's adding a person you don't know or watching a vid of something that you can get it.
    as far as personal info, my folks said they had private phone number and no one could find it or where they lived on the comp. Try zaba search. type in name and state 9 out of 10 times the person is there, it will give you address & phone numer and people you are realted to, you have to pay for the extras like criminal background check. my folks were on there.

    My avatar, is a picture of a purple-and-black dragon from Dragon Cave.
    vckum's, is a picture of two fingers side by side. They both have faces, and half of a heart. When the fingers are together, they make a full heart!
    Jellybean's, is a picture of two dogs. They look pretty small, and, I think they are beagles. One is yellow(ish)-tan, and white, and the other is brown, black, and white. They both have floppy ears.

    Yes. There are, ema, and it's better to be, 'safe', than, 'sorry'. :yes2:
    scoobdoo, I looked you up on Facebook, and there is nobody named Laurie Frye Magee. Then I looked you up via your e-mail, and there is nobody with that e-mail! What's going on, here? :chuckle:

    huh? well I'm there I was just on it! Alex I tried to look up you I even copied and pasted your name so I wouldn't mis spell it and all I got were 3 results 2 of them were guys & one gal had name raljen or something like that. My e mail is scoobdoo63@hotmail.com, one other time I had trouble with my best friend from high school couldn't find me either & we both had accounts. Then one day it worked and she is on mine. I might do a contact the fb people and ask why? I wonder if I gave you some one else to look up and you went to their friend list if you can find me that way and send a request. try Kellie Mckeown, it will be a picture of her and a guy, she should have some Magee's on her friend list. did ya make sure you spelled Magee right? A lot of people mc my name McKee, Mcgee or MaGee,

    I still can't find you. Try giving me a link to your profile. From there, I can friend you, I hope... Sorry for all the trouble! This has never happened to me, before! :biglaugh:
    P.S. Hermiefun, is Lisa Walker. Her avatar is a picture of her, and her husband. Hermiefun is wearing a beautiful, brown dress, and her husband is wearing a cap, and I believe, has glasses.

    scoobdoo, I finally found you! I visited the, 'Random Picture Thread', and found a link to a picture you have, on Facebook. From there, I was able to access your profile, but I am not able to friend you. It is not letting me. Where the place where it usually says, 'Add as Friend', it is displaying one of the blank, men shadow avatars, and the option, for sending a friendship request, is not available! What is going on, here? Have you blocked me? Have you somehow programmed your account to not accept any friend requests? Is it my computer, or my account? Or, is it just a glitch? Who knows! Help me here, scoobdoo! :chuckle:
