Facebook might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But it seems to have had enough appeal for half the planet to sign up so far. They have had issues with privacy, repeatedly, but it’s not something that worries me. I’m of the opinion that you effectively sign away your rights to privacy the moment you log onto the internet. If you really have something that mustn’t be shared, don’t put it on the net in the first place, regardless of any privacy policies. Assume your data will either be given away, sold or stolen and work with that as the basis of your decision making when it comes to typing in details.
But anyway, Facebook. I’ve had a blast from the past this week, and found a few old friends from the old days. Really old days. People who I haven’t heard from for 25 years, since we parted ways having left St Johns prep school at age 13. People who, it turned out, had put photos of our old school days up on Facebook years ago, including a couple with me in them. Begads, I used to have a full head of hair!
