("thud" head hitting desktop) I don't do Facebook, I won't do facebook, my wife does Facebook, I'll do Twitter but not Facebook, seems like most companies these days that run promotions or events want people to get the info from their Facebook page thereby forcing people to either sign up with Facebook or be blocked, argh Facebook is taking over the world. My wife tried to access her Facebook account from my phone one day and Facebook tried to capture all my contacts and phone logs and waaaaaayyyyyy too much stuff like my calender schedules to sync everything about me into her account, AND FACEBOOK DIDN"T EVEN ASK FOR PERMISSION TO DO THIS so I pulled the battery. If I don't have authority to tell Facebook what they can and cannot have access to about me then I won't do Facebook.
The point of this thread: since I don't do Facebook, and since so many companies and events that I'm interested in are using Facebook as their primary customer/participant link, is there a way to have a facebook account but not give facebook access to all my privacy? It makes me feel like they want to put a webcam on my shower head and another one under the rim of my toilet. I would like to share what I choose to share, none of which will be bathroom related, I also would like to keep my calender and contacts/address-book and phone logs private as well, is this even possible with a facebook account?
And please don't give me a link to a Facebook FAQ page which requires membership to access it.
Thank you for listening/reading. I was about to post this in a thread about a ride event that linked to a facebook page, but then decided it might detract from the event so I posted here in Foo instead.
