I realized it's not at all for meeting people, but only keeping up with your past.

Still a week left before the account is "deleted" because of the mandatory two-week period period where any interaction causes the account to be reactivated. This would include attempting to log in to check whether the account has been deactivated. Can't say I blame the company though. It's their system, they created it.

The FBI has software and entire teams that specialize in link analysis and profiling you by analyzing your network of friends. It's about more than just the content that you post.

I was just talking to a friend this morning about FB, and we were discussing how many have probably just stopped using the service versus deleting their accounts. I think Zuckerberg had said that only a few percent had actually deleted their accounts (I may be wrong here), but what I wonder is how many have stopped updating and adding friends. I think this latter figure must be large, at least large enough to concern some people.

Hey AT, so nice to see you again.

I'm curious, do you know many others who have done the same, either deleted their Facebook accounts or simply stopped adding content or friends. I wonder how much business they've really lost.

Hard to make judgments like that anecdotally. I haven't really come across that, although yes some have deleted before (not recently), and I remember one of my friends wanted to at one point, but hasn't.

Those who quit will likely just resurface in some other social network like Twitter or find a forum to post on. Kind of hard to get away from all of this.

I deleted my account about 2 months ago but I only had it for about 3 weeks anyways so not much profiling of me on there at least. No other social sites for me other than here. I work with a lot of people who use facebook and I havent heard any chatter of them dropping it, they dont have a clue anyways of what it is or the recent news (even though its not news) about FB privacy policy.
Sorry I deleted it in December not 2 months ago, just going through old pms and realized this.

I'm still very active on FB. I find a lot of value sharing news and info with a really good group of FB friends. Yeah FB and the three letter agencies can profile all they want, I participate in the system so little it doesn't bother me. If the jack booted facebook thugs want to come by my house for something I posted that's fine also. I'm not hiding from anybody.

As a matter of fact, I've made some 'real life' friends from FB. I'm actually forming a small community of freedom lovers here on the BI, one for sure has committed to making the move. If she's a fed I hope she doesn't mind mosquitoes and likes to pull weeds.

Mostly we sit around and disrespect government, banks, the CIA, the foundations, etc but we also share articles and info about spirituality, homesteading, aquafarming, medicinal herbs and disaster preparedness. I often use wwws.forummotion as a resource and many have expressed gratitude for the threads here.

I get many friend requests. (I have over 600 now) I'll look over their profiles if they watch TV, listen to Alex Jones, Glen Beck, David Icke, support Israel, are devout Christians, I ignore the request. Mostly my FB friends are a bunch of researchers, intelligent anti gov types, UFO types and light workers. (whatever that is) The last two are on my friends list because they are usually in agreement about the first two.

I don't wonder too much about infiltration by intel types, my life is an open book. They cannot take anything from me, I don't buy much and I don't give a shit anyway. Life's too short and I'm going to enjoy myself before I die. Once in awhile I'll get disinfo agents appearing on my threads, but they are sussed out quickly and flamed or ignored till they stop posting.

I agree incognito. It is still something that can be used against the controllers and what you are doing is exactly that. Nice job.

Just so you know, they're using FB to monitor discussions so that they can better monitor public opinion. The results from this monitoring is then used to create new propaganda that will counteract or guide the emerging opinions. So, while you may benefit from reaching others with information, you should also know that that information is being used to develop new propaganda. It's a double edged sword, unfortunately.
