And it's all those reasons that have been re-iterated and alternately poo poo-ed a thousand times.
Giving my information for some rich frat kid to get rich off of, doing the Government's work for them, just a little too lack of control and voluntarily invasive, etc. I know I am missing out on one of the greatest social interactions of the 21st century, but I'll try and get over it. Call me old school and Black Helicopter (my sons do) but that's cool, I believe the Feds should have to do the legwork themselves.

That said, this is more a PSA for Fb users (I know how the privacy rules are quietly changed and the user is the last to know) than a diary, so the "that's not a diary" police can stand down and go back to flagging offenders on Craigslist- though I seriously appreciate your diligence at keeping the short diary barbarians at the gates to the Orange Serfdom.

I just came across this from Consumers Reports and it seemed useful and simple and if not please ignore it and it will fall below the edge of the screen out of sight on its own, probably by dinner time.

peace ya'll.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
