You guys are the only ones that freely get my limited info and Ive cut back on posting here too. I still have a dumb phone as smart phones are broken dam of privacy. Interesting watching my wifes online footprint explode after she got her smartphone and she has no social media accounts. Just a few apps stealing any and all info they could off her phone. So no, facebook will never get info from me voluntarily. Though internet privacy is a losing proposition no matter how you look at it.

I don't think most people have any idea how insidious and invasive FB is. I'm no conspiracy nut; these guys are invading privacy more effectively than the FBI ever dreamed of. When I dug into the details of FB's data collection schemes (such as monitoring your browsing even when you're not logged in to their site) I dumped them fast.

I officially protest MO's failure to offer an alternative way to enter the contest!
Yeah that bothered me more than reading endless posts from aging housewives having coffee or going to the gym.

BTW you really can DELETE your old FB account but you have to request it.

It amazes me how much personal information people vomit readily.

It took weeks and weeks to finally delete my FB account. I had to spread chicken bones and human blood in the yard during a full moon to get it done.

I heard a news report last week about a guy who applied for a position with the State o' Maryland. The hiring manager demanded his FB username and password, and proceeded to examine his account. His claim was that because it was a "security" job, he needed to find out if the applicant was a "terrorist." The guy got the job, then quit later and went public with the story. Apparently a law is now working its way through the state legislature to ban this. Like that would matter one lick...

Sorry. But it's true. Anyway, keep it tuned to MO for other cool contests that won't require a FB account!

Kevin, Thank you for offering FB free contests, though I will probably not be on vacation, as I will be during L.S., I really hope you can retro-activate this contest.
You may have successfully deleted your FB acct, but you gave up your rights to all materials and info you posted when you opened your FB acct. It stays there forever, and if anyone "liked" or linked your photos or information, it remains public until each and every one of those users have deleted their accts! Even then, it is archived and becomes public again if just one user re-activates. The previous comment, "insidious", has elicited the "pooh-poohers" responses, who unfortunately, only demonstrate a lack of simple investigation...
