I know others have posted about Facebook being more than It appears, but I feel like this deserves its own thread. you will see why.
First off, I've had suspicions that Facebook asks too much information about its users than I'm personally comfortable with. It seems almost like...
a tool for someone else to use in order to catalog information about the people in this country and around the world.
For those of you in the dark, a little reasoning behind my beliefs:
I know most of you have heard what the video says already so lets move onto the purpose of this thread.
So at this point... I believed that Facebook was a tool... for someone. I didn't know who or for what purpose. I figured maybe the government because
why wouldn't they want a nice easy catalog of the youth of this country. What better way to get information and use it against us... with Facebook,
the government can easily see what our interests are and who we associate with and they can use this information against us if something like a new
world order ever went down.
sounds lame right? well who exactly is in on this plot? the government? the Media?
...what happened next scared me.
I decided to conduct my own investigation. (unfortunately for me, this was before I was an avid member on these forums, so I do not have
documentation... however I feel inclined to repeat this exorcise so if I do I will document it for you all)
It came subtle at first. I logged onto Yahoo answers and someone had posted a question about Facebook. I clicked it and the question was asking
whether anyone else felt as if Facebook asked too much personal information. I said what the heck, and responded saying that I feel like not only does
it ask too much information, but their terms of services are very shady when it comes to the subject of who sees this information.
I log on an hour later, and instead of the question being closed, It's gone. completely all traces removed. curious, I decided to post my own
I asked relatively the same question, and I made sure to specifically address the idea that Facebook was like a database for the government or
same thing happened... not even an hour later my topic was deleted, all traces removed.
I emailed yahoo about it, but got nothing in return.
at this point, I felt kind of afraid that maybe I had touched on something very wrong, so checking over my shoulder every 5 minutes or so I decided to
log off and go to sleep.
The next day I got up and drove to school. I was not halfway there when I realized that a black SUV that pulled onto the highway near my house was
still behind me (I drive about a half hour to school and back every day) I thought it was strange but shook it off. It followed me almost to the
school, but when I turned to drive into the parking lot, it continued down the road. I was pretty upset because I thought it was an undercover cop car
and I thought I was going to get pulled over for something.
Upon leaving, I noticed that halfway home a similar SUV was following me once again, but far enough back so every time I went around a turn I would
only catch a glimpse of it before I turned the next corner. It continued to almost to my house, so I took a detour and started hitting up some back
roads. The SUV vanished... but I was still shaken up.
I haven't seen the SUV's since then, and I don't really go on y! answers anymore because of that whole ordeal. I have not really even spoken again
about Facebook until now... because one of my friends brought the subject up, It reminded me that I wanted to share this experience with ATS.
Has anyone else had similar experiences? what do you guys think? maybe I'm just paranoid. who knows.
