Nothing is "personal" anymore. The gov't knows EVERYTHING about you. The world is filled with so many different things in life that there's no such thing as "normal."
I would recommend to keep certain things out of email, text, etc and speak to the person directly if possible. I usually avoid leaving trails as much as possible. On FB, my posts gets deleted from FB especially when I was exploiting the truth. I used to be watched, followed, etc.. and even today, I am constantly being watched. Oh, probably because I am not white enough. *rolleyes*
Well, pretty much. They have all of our stuff already, if people want to put information out there that they don't already know about, that's on them. That is why you need be careful with things you don't want known &.. if you don't want it to be known, don't make it public. I'm not for them using our information but, people have brains to decide with. Meh, I've used it forever, for me and against them as well. Tons of people have left and went too Google+ because they heard about all of this.. I never left.. Who do they think owns Google? ??

If you don't like it, don't use facebook, or put a picture of you on the internet. You have to make a conscious decision to do these things. The government already has your face, through drivers license, IDs and mugshots.

I'm an artist too & stopped using it but, there's nothing I can do about it now anyway. I mean.. even if I did "delete" it, (which I have not, just stopped logging in..)all of our information is STILL there in the databases/servers etc. Whatever though, let em try & come at me. You'll be okay. Don't sweat. They get most of the info we posted to facebook through other ways as well, all the time.. it's just that using our facebook to get it easy/free saves them time & money.

Ey, Bloody Hell! Thank you for mentioning videos I didn't think about that & there
are videos of me on FB in my sport. Guess I'm F&*@D with out FB due to
being a professional musician in the past & videos not just on TV or Cable,
but also a big show taped for the soldiers in the Gulf War...& also videos
BBC when touring UK. I wish I would have known about FB much earlier,
but I'm not computer savoy, & it seems according to my history above
I wouldn't stand a chance of privacy any way. That's the price you pay
for being semi-known for a Huge known...LOL!
Is it even possible to help myself at this point? Thank You for Your Time!!!
