W.O.C. Delete Facebook?
Closed

We were curious to see where you stand on Social Media- if you are using it, or if not? What good can come out of social media? What would be the disadvantages of social media? And lastly, if you will delete your Facebook?

In May of 2011, I set up a Facebook account in order to enter a promotional drawing. I set all of the privacy parameters at their maximum-privacy settings, which supposedly would protect my privacy by not sending my data to anybody without prior authorization. A week and a half later, Facebook sent me an E-mail containing listings of six persons whom they described as persons desiring to "meet" me through Facebook. One was a man I knew, so I asked him, and he said that he had done no such thing, that he was on Facebook only in order to keep track of his children. I attempted to close my Facebook account, but this was not allowed (!!), but I could make it "inactive.". I was able, in October of 2012, to close it, and I'll have nothing whatever to do with that outfit again. Ever since those events, I have regarded Facebook as a gross violator of privacy, so the present flap was no surprise to me at all.
I am active on nextdoor.com, which has decent manners and does not attempt in any way to violate users' privacy, although it does ask users to suggest to others in the neighborhood that they join.

I get on Facebook to connect with family other then that I find it useless, there are too many ads that I don't care about, people I don't know sending me friend requests, news feeds are sometimes not up to date. I don't like to share my personal information but some of it is required by Facebook it makes me mad to see Facebook will do anything they want to with your personal information when I joined Facebook I thought it was to connect with family and friends not for Facebook to share my personal information so will I delete my account yes I would.

It's simple, like when you give up information for any credit card, debit card, department store card, and so many other things, social media became that avenue where third party information gatherers became solicitors of voluntary information. Surveys express the same type of information gathering before you except such incentives that may apply. We all get pamphlets in addition to the receipt of plastic swipe cards with stripes or chips detailing how much third party vendors will or will not use your personal information for marketing purposes. Social media is an avenue to expose, cooperate, maintain responsibility in information barring to others like friends, family, and data companies all in one platform. Marketing of personal information is the debate with data companies, but some of us know what it means to be the subject of a trend, leader, influence in a market like Facebook based on likes, follows, interests to help guide business decisions or find solicitation based on gender, age, race, education. #dontletthemdeletefacebook#moreresponsiblepeope#allthekidsmustgo#findoutthetruth.

I don't think I have much of a contribution to this because I don't use facebook. But I also don't think it really matters now to delete your facebook, as whatever information that is there has already been accessed, and deleting it will not make any difference either. I only would suggest that developers of these social media should be security wise and do more to protect users data.

If wr delete facebook then we neef to delete the internet. Our personal info has always been at risk from digging thru our trash, stealing our mail, to hacking the internet. Hackers adjust to the time faster than security can.

I think anything you do on the internet is subject to having personal info stollen. If we delete facebook then do we also delete the internet? Hackers will always be there they adjust with the times.
