I have never used facebook nor had any real interest in it.
However, recently my employer asked me to sign up so I could comment on some of our companies public events and provide a sort of "voice" for us
So, I signed up. I did what I needed to do. Then I looked around, One thing more than anything scared me.
How did it know who my friends were? I had a new account, never posted anything. My partner has her own account but has not posted much, kept her
relationship status undefined, and has no particularly defining profile information on her timeline or whatever its called.
So, how on earth did it put her at the top of my list of "friends to add" ? We don't email each other, we didn't enter real address information
when signing up. About the only legal thing that binds us is our joint bank account, and same address on our utility bills.
Frankly, this sent a chill down my spine
I have now deactivated my account, and have told my employer where to shove it. It is a scary website that some people are far to blinded to to see
the dark side of it.
