Facebook Goes Private.???

Facebook will simplify controls on the social networking service to appease its critics.
Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyce said, " we've spent the last couple of weeks listening to users and consulting with experts in California, Washington DC and around the world.
The messages we've received are pretty clear."users appreciate... precise and comprehensive controls, but want them simpler and easier to use."

Recently a great deal of criminal activity born from the loins of face book by users has been exposed by   prominent bloggers due to its rapid increase in  murders and rape  by members of  facebook."
Facebook has been under fire for features its critics claim compromise the privacy of members.
Equally worrying is a little known default setting buried within a user's account giving Facebook permission to share profile information with third party applications, such as advertisers. This happens all across the net.
They do not operate something as large as Facebook for free.

I Spent over half an hour setting my privacy levels at the extreme and I am still worried I have missed something.
I am a huge facebook user and am disappointed to finally start to agree with some paranoid friends I had previously laughed at.

Have walked this rather beautiful and eccentric continent called .."Non competico australis" .. named , methinks, by completely arrogant Mediteraneans. Can't claim, nor be sympatico with your rather extraordinary experiences and attitudes; but sort of understand.


Vesty, understanding history. Curious concept.
