i do have a Facebook page, and i'm very picky and selective in who i allow on my friends list. i am very selective in what i post on Facebook as well, and keep my privacy settings only to allow those on my friends list to see the things i post.

my main use of Facebook is to stay in touch with family and friends that live far off that i don't see a lot of. much of what i discuss on Facebook is pretty neutral for the most part, and very seldom do i discuss political or hot topic issues.

After reading this entire thread I'm happy I live where I do!
People today have become so politically correct that they are either unable or unwilling to recognize the threat when it moves in.

Exactly. Privacy is a right as is personal or communication with group of friends, church, or at American Legion, SAR, or anywhere.
Google monitors and retains and sells all, of our information and for other purposes.
I suppose everyone has received lots of targeted advertisements, from info garnered on line from looking at sites of interest.
We have recently received some addressed specifically to my wife and to us both by name. The didn't get our names here but somehow did. I haven't bought anything online in a long time....but we pay bills online.
If we met at the Golf and Country club for meetings it would not be retained online. If we exchanged post by ail it wouldn't be retained.
Why should it be retained by a business, or anyone else not in the room with us, not on the group with us, or addressed by us.
Are they curious what we say or think and why? Why should it be their business?

But since it's been many years since I lived there, those things could be just a good memory. So, that's the reason we're grateful to live here in the S.W. corner of Oregon, were neighbors are pretty much like minded and we look out for one another.

but you make a choice to participate in online activities. and other than private emails, there is no expectation of privacy.

if you go online, you are using someone's property to navigate the internet. they have provided the infrastructure that allows you to access just about anything that is available on the internet.

internet providers have to pay for the equipment that allows you that access. so why is it they should be limited in advertising, and using information you provide to sell products to support having the equipment that allows you that access?

you have a choice. you are not obligated to participate online in any way. you could always remove the DSL line from computer to the phone outlet. get rid of your phone modem, and use snail male to correspond, and use your laptop to play Solitaire.

Facebook is like everything else in life, it is how you 'manage' it that matters!

A lot of people are interested in you and what you buy, how much you spend, what you like to read, what your political positions are, whether you own guns, whether you donate to charity, what your skills and jobs are, your marital status, sexual orientation, where you go and when you go there, even what color socks you wear. They are going to gather and retain that information in the most efficient way possible.

When you post on web sites, it just makes it easier for them to build your personal profile that gets stored, permanently, in a data base for anyone willing to pay to access. It is the world we live in, and there is not a damn thing you can do about it. Your only hope for privacy in today's world would be to go off-line, use cash only and live in a cave out of reach of cameras. Even then, the previous information gathered is there.....forever....

You can whine about it or you could just accept the facts of life and roll with it, because the privacy train has left the station and you aren't going to stop it.

Like it or not Washington and Oregon have been Californicated. There are even places in California that people are still sane. They are vastly outnumbered though. The northern part of CA and the southern part of Oregon have been trying to form the State of Jefferson for decades. Seattle seems to run WA and Multnomah County/Portland seem to run OR. I hated to leave Klamath Falls but work ran out. Same for Pasco WA. Reagan made a big mistake there.
