    I can't help it. Alot of the things my former acquaintences talk about openly just makes me lose alot of respect for them. It only makes me want to distance myself from my school days even further than I already have.

    And dude, the NSA and other intelligence agencies can see every electronic communication we make. Forum posts, IMs, texts, phone calls, multimedia messages, emails, nothing is private.

    What can I say? I'm ill-informed.

    I understand that, as I have the same problem. But you don't want anything to do with anybody from your past? There's got to be a few good people you knew.

    I only regularly interact with two people I went to school with. As for the rest, either they don't want anything to do with me, or I don't want anything to do with them.

    Maybe I'm just being self-righteous, but I see how they talk, and what they talk about and I just lose any interest in staying in contact with them.

    Well, the past only creates problems. Trust me, I know. There are also good and bad people from my past, but I tend to avoid my past altogether.

    It's a life experience, Jmh.

    And is a major part in why I like Shadow a lot.

    Excuse me while I take such negative, life hating advice as "the past only creates problems" with a bucket of salt.

    I said already, I have problems in my past, and problem people. Had a rough life. However, I have friends there, and family, and people that have just been there for me through it all, people who always wanted me to succeed. To turn a blind eye to those people is a terrible and selfish thing.

    I got a lot of friends that live out of state from me so it's a good way to keep in touch with all of them.

    I use Facebook because it helps me keep in touch with friends and promote my site. It also helps me set up get-togethers and events with friends and family because they just make it so simple and free.

    As for the privacy thing; it is as private as you make it. If you don't want people knowing your real name, then don't use your real name. If you don't want people to search for you on Facebook search, Google search, etc, then don't let them. If you only want certain people to see certain things, then set it up like that. I recently turned off the ability for people to tag me in those iPhone/HTC/etc phone messages that tell people where I am at a certain time, because ffs, somebody could read that I'm not home and then try and rob me. How stupid is that?

    The privacy settings are there for a reason, so use them. Or better yet, just be cautious of the nonsense you put up there.

    I have a profile and I regret creating it lol. I do find it useful for contacting ppl who live far away, who I don't rly hang out with but whom I don't want to forget either. For close friends and relatives, mobile phone is much better imo. I had to turn off email notifications when I started getting Mafia Wars and Restaurant game spam on my Wall.

    I don't really hate it but I don't need it either. Sometimes I completely forget I even have a profile.
