Yeah, I just did one because my classmates are trying to reconnect and classmates rots at this point, and myspace is more kids.
Realistically though, I gave up worrying about it a few years back. They already know whatever they want to know, so what do I have to hide?
A few years back, I tested this theory (when I had nothing anywhere on the internet personal about me) with a fellow ATSer from another country. After
a long time of private chatting, and his claims that he had access to info, I challenged him by giving him my full name. Within half an hour he spewed
back my entire life, from my maiden name to where I grew up and everything I did in the 40 years I'd been alive.
It's out there folks, if the Russians have it the US surely does. (This particular member was from Russia).
So don't kid yourselves about privacy, it was lost a long time ago, regardless of whether or not you want to play on Facebook or any other place.
If I had kids though I definately would keep them off of any of these sites. Found my 12 year old nephew on myspace. He had graduated High School, was
earning 7 figures and gosh I was so proud to know him.
Then my sis gets him a new cell phone and he posts the number on the top of his page (she didn't have a clue and his page was public). He probably
hates me now for ratting him out. Oh, now this post makes me realize I better go look the kids up there -
(Not really funny)
