What are the laws dealing with Facebook sharing info with 3rd parties without permission? I'm thinking of suing them so I can get a couple of millions of dollar out of them and retire with ease.

Best advice... stay away from Facebook.

You know what else is a face book? A book of mug shots.


Facebook needs to go!

Why would you put your real info into there anyway. You get what you deserve

Sorry to say this ATS, but something is going on, on this website too. I was on Overstock.com and was going to purchase a chair and left it in the shopping cart and came to ATS. And to my disbelief an ad was in a forum that displayed the exact chair I was going to buy, when viewing the website..hmmmmm

3rd party cookies...

That is what is going on. It will happen all over the 'net if you have them activated in your browser settings and do not clear your history/cache when you exit a site.

Yes, you can delete a FB account. It's just a little harder to find that option (of course, FB doesn't want you to do that)...


how to permanently delete FB

I will keep on proudly posting my face on Facebook. I have deleted all my personal information a long time ago, but I won't delete my account. Why? Facebook is MY favorite tool at waking up the masses. This is where I publish controversial articles, like the ones posted in Breaking Alternative News. People don't come on ATS, but they do visit my Facebook page, so why not using it the very same way the government uses it to dumb us? I guess the number of people constantly reading my wall must be above 500...I get a lot of commentaries, so my "shares" always get to appear in the "Recent News" page of my friends (and friends of friends of friends). This is now exponential! With so much people looking at my articles, and commenting them, they, without knowing it, are participating in the waking up of the mass.

So, yes! I will proudly keep my face on Facebook, because I am so happy to actively doing something for humanity. The day I get shot down because I was being associated to something revolutionary by TPTB, my mission will be accomplished and I will die in peace. I will have awaken enough people to get "noticed" by the PTB. I hope that day comes, I want to do my share for the world.

Facebook could be a success, as well as a big big mistake for the PTB is enough people do like I do!

I feel kind of the same. Through facebook I have made connections with free thinkers and even helped to awaken some old school chums to the way things really are and I dont regret it. My information can be mined in so many different ways and honestly....you dont need a single computer. People were being stalked long before the digital age and should decide that they want to come for me....well....IIWII....and part of me wants to have to defend whats mine. I have some issues to work out and what a fine way! I could be attacked by a rouge cop, angry pedestrian, man in black, crackhead with a bat or low flying pigeon, but Im not gonna live in fear or jump at shadows. My credit is already #....take it, lol. I didnt volunteer my number but rarely answer the phone for people I know so Im not worried.

Haha very nice hypothetical scenario.So then they will have to send a robot back in time to the party where i slept with the hot chic and try to assassinate me because I am the commander of the resistance..sounds like something Ive heard before..

Yea they are using the facial recognition software, I was aware of that, but its only limited to facebook. Its not like that information is going to some government database.

Plus I could get other peoples facebook information by going to a local starbucks in center city (the biggest most busiest one) and set my computer up and do an ARP poisoning and hijak the router and intercept all data from peoples laptops and use someone else's account if I got blamed for something I did not do.

How would they know your personal information from this site unless they hacked ATS servers, and retrieved the IP address. Even if they hacked they couldnt get the IP address logs because they are protected by a key that only Springer knows..or whoever runs the thing...

I disliked Facebook from the start. I never signed up. (I have a lame, old, unused MySpace page with very little info, and found it rather pointless.)

Now I am glad I did not!

I was pretty shocked to see that when I clicked on the link that showed the city I live in, that a map came up showing exactly where I lived on my street. I never gave them my exact address and I have moved quite often. Just goes to show. I quickly deleted that info from my profile. I also deactivated my profile to be allowed updated via SMS because my phone number was on display for all to see.

It is amazing how some people just do not care. I told my friends and one of them said "I have nothing to worry about. I don't care." But one friend was very glad I told her. She has been very vigilant then entire 17 years I've known her to keep herself and her information hard to obtain from her abusive father. Her, her sisters and mom fled from him years ago because he was a very violent man. He has tried to kill her mother and attempted to strangle her to death once when she was a kid. And in public non the less!!!! So you can understand why she wants to keep her whereabouts on the downlow.
