Do you have a Facebook?

This is really stupid, ofcourse they want to know what the people want to obviously create better products, movies, music, etc.. now if you are careless about your personal information then don`t be crying when you become a victim of identity theft, also this video clearly states that it is the government and big corporations that want our information. bottom line this was a waste of time.. its like stating the obvious.. market research!!

There are kids at my school who were part of a group on facebook for legalizing marijuana, and someone sent a list of the kids to the principal, who is an ass. Anyway, now all the teachers have a copy of the list. Luckily, I don`t have a facebook. Unfortunately, they still drug test me every time. :[

Well, its sorta obvious they`re gonna sell your info to companies. If they know how to `better sell you products` isn`t that a good thing though? I wouldn`t mind an ad campaign targetted at my own personal demographic at all, it could have 80s hairbands and a Unicorn called Sparkles!

All Facebook has access to is my name, email, the school I went to, where I used to work, a list of bands I like, that I only really read Marvel comics and Asterix books and don`t seem to have any real interests bar playing videogames. The CIA can`t do a whole heap with that info.

Gmail actually saves a record of every single email message sent or received and can potentially give that info to other sources if needed to. Its like that argument about CCTV cameras. Sure, they infringe on civil liberties somewhat but as long as you`re not doing anything wrong you should have nothing to worry about right?

Lol you guys act like it`s a big deal. Guess what, every govt. is just as bad, they just don`t try to cover it up as much.

If I knew someone in the CIA and asked you a question about your sexual adventures but since I never said I wouldn`t take hte information to anyone else, does that mean I`m going to tell that person, no. Just relax.

We have the same kind of paranoia here in Quebec lately. I got a Facebook account in April, I think, and for a long time I could barely find anyone I knew on it, it being a pretty new thing in the province. But since they`ve been talking about evil it is on TV and the internet, my old friends from various schools have been creating profiles like crazy, and I`ve found 60 of them in the last month or so.

In French, we have a saying that goes "parlez-en en bien ou parlez-en en mal, mais parlez-en."

Speak good about it or speak bad, but talk about it. People are too curious not to try it.

Well then, it looks like I actually get to do the honors here:

"INTERNET: SERIOUS BUSINESS"

I always enjoy a good laugh at people that get paranoid over things like this. What the heck are you so afraid of? Just about anything you say about yourself (especially with stuff like this) is stuff that anyone could find out pretty quickly, pretty easily. And why would you care? Do you live in some bunker somewhere, with your existence hidden from all mankind? What information about yourself could you possibly be so scared of people knowing? Chill out, guys. You don`t want it known, you just keep it to yourself. DONE~

A word of advice to all: Just because you`ve heard this one source of information that seems to be biased against facebook, you should not assume that these statements are true. Research for yourself, and do research on the people who made this. Just because someone told you something, it may not be true. I urgre EVERYONE to be a skeptic, be skeptical about sources of information like this as they may or may not contain fact.

I agree that I don`t care what the government does with my personal information.

Also, when the whole last minute of the video simply said `replay,` did anyone else expect something scary to pop up like in that maze game? In YouTube, you can just replay once it`s finished anyway.

Random people can look up your number in a phone book... so? People are so damn paranoid it makes me sick.

Anyone that calls someone a n00b is a complete idiot and deserves shooting.

Same goes for people who are paranoid by silly little videos like this. If you don`t want a facebook account, don`t have one. No-one`s forcing you to. Personally, I can talk to my friends on MSN and see no need to have a myspace/facebook account. But whatever floats your boat... Whatever pickles your onion... and other such terrible clichés.

the government can pretty much get any information on any person in the united states.
there is no more privacy.

and then with the patriot act now that clearly goes against whats said in the declaration of independence, cops can just walk into any house without a warrant.

so our business is everyone elses business now.

I use facebook to share pictures and jokes with my friends. I don`t have "friends" I don`t know in real life. I`m not in a geographical/work/school network that would allow everyone in that network to view my profile. I don`t add ridiculous applications that are pointless and spam my email. I don`t put information that I don`t want anyone to know about, I don`t put up pictures that I wouldn`t want my employer to see, and I don`t respond to strangers who message/poke me just to be able to see my profile if I respond to it. And after about 6 months of having a profile and checking it occasionnaly, I still don`t understand how people can be addicted to it.

I have a Facebook and I use it in an intelligent way. If they send that information to companies who will make profit from it, then fine. The video was interesting in its warning, but it would be wrong to think Facebook is the only website to do that.

Interesting.

I think it`s a little far-reaching, but there`s some truth to it. Facebook isn`t the only one out there, though- I am sure of it. Think about the other websites that are similar and how they might be used...

I think people just need to be made aware of the risk of putting personal info on the internet- if they, after being informed of the risk, are still stupid enough to put their address on facebook, then that`s not really anyone else`s fault, is it?

MY god, I never realised there were so many facebook haters on here. It`s my philosophy that if you`re silly enough to put details like telephone numbers and adresses and things like that on the web, then you`ve only got yourself to blame if something happens to you. I`m not saying you deserve it, but the buck stops at you, for putting those details online. Personally, I`m on facebook and really like it. It allows you to connect with friends when conventional methods aren`t always available. I use to communicate with people who I`m not living away from, it`s not virtually socializing because I don`t know how to socialize in the real world, it`s just another way of socializing.

LOL Facebook = CIA. I KNEW thats how they were finding those terrorists in Iraq! "ah-HA! Git`cha Osama! You thought you could be sneaky and slip in under the radar! But our handy sources from Facebook have caught you!"
Give me a break. Of COURSE corporations feed money into such places as Myspace and Facebook. of COURSE they collect your information and sell it. You agree to the terms and corporations love it because they can better figure out what to sell, where to sell it, and when to sell it.
Only time you`d really have to worry here is if you were planning to hijack a plane or blow up a nuclear power plant somewhere in the US territory. As I`m going to guess most if not all of Facebook`s user base aren`t.. I don`t think theres a problem.
Oh and I read `DARPA` as `DARMA` at first.. was kinda like "D(H)ARMA!? WTF!? Facebook creates creepy islands and strands people on them!? AWESOME! Sign me up!"
Good stuff. Overly conspiratory but good stuff. [/longpo

This video is made by ignant people. I`m far more worried about the postings I make on websites like this one. To discourage private companies from finding out my political opinions, I use aliases on sites where I post political opinions. And for sites where I use my real name, like this one, I just ask myself: am I willing to face anyone if this post comes up?

As for people (like the authors of this video) who stay away from Facebook and think they`re safe from private companies and the CIA, I just have this to say: Do you have a bank account and credit card? Bad news folks, after 9/11, all those agencies make that info available to the government, and the patriot act allows any member of the executive branch to request records from any private corporation or public institution.

Your privacy was sold out in 2001. Facebook merely has all the information any investigator could find out in 48 hours of talking to a handful of your friends & acquaintances.

no one forces you to put information on facebook, you could just put your name, thats it
the information helps connect you with others, and is not malicious information. you shouldnt put incriminating evidence on facebook. besides, whats the government going to do, wait at a football field because you said you like to play football on facebook?

So what?!?! It is the internet. You`d be kind of nieve to think that posting anything personal about yourself anywhere online is safe, secure and anonymous! No matter what a site says. It is just common sense. If you have something to hide, don`t post it round the net for all to see.

If you don`t want your information known then stop posting your life on the internet.

Being at university, Facebook is a great way to stay in contact with people from home and it`s free. Who cares if they can access your details? Don`t put details that you care about being accessed on the website then. The `privacy` is controlled by the user, so really stop making Facebook out to be the catalyst for the beginning of Orwell`s 1984 `vision`. This paranoia is killing me. Next you`ll be telling me the US Government blew up the Twin Towers ... oh wait.

Just to make it clear: arkansas and snoopdawg agree that Facebook use won`t really be affected much by this video.

As for `why` people would use social-networking sites, I read a theory in The Globe & Mail a few days ago about how it stems from a very primal and basic need: The need for others to acknowledge you. Essentially, to be told that you exist.

Oh no! A privacy policy that suggests use of posted materials? It`s just like every other website ever!

Facebook is a social networking tool. If it is being used exclusively for data mining, not only would we have known about it by now, but it probably would have become glaringly clear within moments seeing as the governments ability to keep anything covert is akin to the ability of a two liter bottle of nitroglycerin to complete a roller coaster ride.

Na, people take it for granted... They think that their information will stay in their social network where in reality, if companies pay high enough, they can obtain it too.

Think about the number of personal details and compromising pictures that most people put on that website. An employer could so easily access it and refuse you point blank for a job

Lucky me!

arkansas: it will not impact the popularity or traffic of facebook. it is because most of the people addicted to facebook are not smart enough to get out of it. Thus, they will deny the information and continue to virtually socialize as if they have no other ways to connect with their friends.

Facebook takes advantage of human`s unchangable tendency to socialize and gain popular, even if they are false.
