Wow this is going to be a real shock for some people, they might have to actually talk to people for real for a change. Who knows even work productivity might go up a bit


This network keeps families and friends spread out in contact, so, they're talking to real people. Perhaps some of their favorites.

Those Facebook games are nearly all a waste of time. Of course, the first thing people think in this thread are "OMG, ALL MY FRIENDS AND PICS D:" when there is still the issue of where such hackster activities will stop, and where they might go next. It could be your livejournal or yearbook account, and we all know what kind of information goes on there.

It may even be government agencies getting hacked. This is simply another step along that path.

Lolwhut? Facebook has never been TRULY interested in our safety and security. All they want is to keep people from getting offended so the site won't get shut down, because their REAL interest is making money from it. Even the stupid phone registration is just so they can find more ways of getting ads to you, or more of your information to sell to companies.

There is a difference between talking and writing. Unless someone is truly skilled in writing it is hard to emphasize ones true meaning and intent behind the words. It is much easier to tell someones true meaning of their words when it is vocalized as it carries emotion. The telephone has been around for more then a century.

Agreed. See, Facebook is only a smidgen of the entire internet. SOPA would restrict 90% of it, including Facebook. In my own personal opinion, I value this site much more than I do Facebook. There is so much more to be seen here...and it's more educational, besides.

I can't do nothing but chuckle at the mindset of the OP and some other posters.

I think censorship under SOPA is a much bigger threat than getting your Facebook hacked.


I can't help but chuckle at your egregious misinterpretation of my aims in starting this thread. I am not concerned with Facebook itself; my account was not shut down. I simply was pointing out the progress of hackers, as it pertains to the condition of the Internet. Since Facebook is a very popular site, it means hackers may be preparing to attack sites of heavy traffic. Don't pretend that the Internet being assaulted by both sides of the equation (Gov't and users) is a paltry issue.

If we can't rely on either the government or the users of the internet, who can be trusted to protect it? That's my point.
