    That just pissed me off. All the stuff you stated, and then this last one was it for me.

    That is for finding criminals and it shouldn't have been unleashed upon regular internet users.

    •  you're kidding! as a non-user, hadn't heard about (0+ / 0-)

      THAT! what is it allegedly for? "I have a picture from the yearbook, but she got married, I wonder where she is now?" sorta stuff, or more sinister? (Just Facebook collecting data on you to sell...)

      "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...

      •  It's prying, unnecessary, and evil. (0+ / 0-)

        Matching up photos of people and labeling them or grouping them without their consent.

        Anyone could take a photo of you, anywhere, on the street, at a bar, at a party, and place it on facebook. And what happens if your boss or someone in your local community doesn't like it? Doesn't approve of where you were, or what you were doing?

        Our corporations get too many liberties with our privacy, which makes the gathering of FB and similar data on individuals, and the selling of it, a little darker and more sinister than it should be.
