Oh get over yourselves, for fuck's sake.
although it was probably just the straw that broke the camel's back, to be fair.
Lotta wackos on this internet.
What's gonna happen?
who needs it
I dont have a facebook
WHAT AM I TRYING TO HIDE?
but i'm getting ready to apply to dental schools, and even though i think there's ways around it to where they might be able to see my profile, i've got it locked up for that purpose which is balls really.
this thread definitely wasn't aimed at you.
'cause i sent out a few messages from groups i don't want people seeing my profile when i don't know them.
I think mine is set to private because there are specific people I really wouldn't feel comfortable 'following' me. It's a good feature! If you have exes / ex-friends / weirdos who you want rid of.
I do voluntary work with kids and can't have them searching me out, would be inappropriate. You'd do well to set it to private when you're applying for grown-up, non-student jobs too...
there are many good reasons for not wanting to have it public. Like if you need to present a professional and relatively serious and reasonable image to the world, but with your friends you're a raucous wacky party person (much like myself), then it pays to block that shit yo.
I'm sure in a few years when everybody is used to it people will be more open and understanding about it, but while shit like this continues to happen: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/7915049.stm then it is a wise move.
that the girl in that news story is a MASSIVE MONG
about the GOVERNMENT wanting access to facebook/myspace info because thats where all the terrorists hang out or something? Or did I dream it?
surely they can just get access pretty easy. Just go to facebook.com, even they can work that out!
although I am pally with Obama on facebook. He's a popular chap.
Zapsta just remember this: she doesn't like you and she doesn't want to sleep with you.
for saying their jobs were boring on their Facebook statuses so I'd say it's pretty reasonable.
I'm all for the privacy! :)
Best relaunch ever
