    I don't understand why so many people are still on Facebook.

    It's been fucking with people's privacy since day one, and continues to do so...and ALWAYS publishes the info.

    If a tyrannical leader ever rose to power in this country, that info would be used against everyone.

    What's worse is if you delete your profile on Facebook it somehow ends up on a dodgey site in New Zealand and a google name search will show everything you ever had on facebook even if it was originally restricted.

    What I find hilarious is that someone would take the time and energy to conduct such a study!

    This generation does not care about privacy and never will. It is simply a different way to live your life where everything about you is known. While this can be easily used against u and it can also be used just as easily to protect you.

    Just look at all the sites, this one included, where guys post photos of themselves in the nude. At least on here the photos have to be unlocked, but on sites like dudesnude or guyswithiphones, the photos can be seen by anyone.

    What's to stop a company for using face recognition software to see if their employees are online in the nude?

    Of course, I've never seen them.icon_lol.gif

    Exactly.

    But I doubt people bother reading my personal info. They all skip to the pictures right off the bat icon_smile.gif

    They see potential $$$$$ in doing such a study to help focus future ads.
