I used to be one of those "addicts" who would spend hours on Facebook,
just doing nothing. Then... I found a video about the hackers, Anonymous.
In this video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXLxiMemYc0,
they said that they were going to attack Facebook because it is selling its
users' information to government agencies (and such). Now, I am not
one who believes everything I see... but I'd rather be "anonymous" than known.

I see everyone putting their private information online to communicate with friends... for free.
Who gives anything that has such a success for free? Really, who does?
I'd charge a ton of money for something like that. We hand our info to a group of
strangers, and as endusers we don't see how they handle our data. They can practically
do anything with it. Even if they have a policy, with connections to the government,
this legal notice doesn't have to be admired. Or that's just my opinion. Personally, I don't trust them.


Here's another video to enlighten you about Anonymous: What We Are Capable Of
It's pretty powerful!



Is it true what they say about Facebook?

Question, how does google success with adsense ? Everything that anonymous says are part of Social Engineering. They want to destroy whole network. I hate them.

Anonymous are not hackers.

I don't trust them too, but everyone is responsible of they account contents. Nobody is forced to put private informations on Facebook (and nobody is forced to register in Facebook).

Well, it depends, you are not forced to give any personal data nor 'like' clicking. The only personal data you have to give is your e-mail address.
Chill bro, no one needs your profile anyway.

I am with Enko.
Do not trust Internet! ( And your girlfriend! Smile )

When I was looking for a job (recession of 2009 - June) - I registered on a # of recruiter sites. Most of them sent me a confirmation message, where my password was printed in OPEN FORM!

That means one thing only - the passwords on these sites are kept in a database in open form. So, malicious person who knows how to SELECT rows from DB can have these passwords:

SELECT username,password FROM table;

Now, what are the chances that person uses SAME nick/pass for the access to their BANK, PAYPAL, EMAIL, etc. People lose big money like this.

I don't trust internet, thus - anonymous group. even more, I hate them. They try to tell people false things that will make them to think that it's fair to do that. They will do such things to every countries soon. Nobody are clean, that's the only reason.
and of course, it will result mass chaos over the world.

If your really that paranoid about facebook conspiracys then why don't you read there privacy policy thingy. Or just chill, brew your self a pot of coffee, stir in some vodka and watch some good sci-fi like far-scape or star trek.

Those guys probably felt too lazy to encrypt them in MD5 form.


I scanned the privacy policy, and there's no need for paranoia--I am not paranoid. It's not like I am going to change name to Barbra and undergo a sex change Razz Razz I'm chilling, man.

I don't trust the internet nor anonymous.

BUMP!

Facebook added some 4 dum31s stuff to let them paranoid people know the truth:


Is it true that Facebook sells my name and contact info to make money?

No. Facebook does not sell your personal information. Instead, Facebook makes its money from showing you ads.
Selling your information would actually be bad for Facebook. Here's why: Facebook was created to help you share and connect with the people in your life. If you don't feel like you're in control of who sees what you share, you probably won't use Facebook as much, and you'll share less with your friends. Not only is that bad for Facebook, it's also bad for you. That's why only the people you choose to share with see your stuff.
