    Anyone else on it?

    What do you think to it?

    Do you trust it security-wise?

    I block it at work. People tend to spend hours on there pissing about when they should be working. I'm not on there either - but that's through laziness more than anything else.

    I have a MySpace site but never use it - I block that at work as well :twisted:

    There are obvious security risks associated with anyone putting PII (Personably Identifiable Information) up on the web - identity theft is a nightmare that no-one should fall foul of, provided they aren't daft. Keep the information about yourself to a minimum and you should be fine.

    Stuff like this , however, can only lead the wary user to conclude that facebook don't take your personal data security that seriously...

    That said, Facebook doesn't seem as vulnerable to XSS attacks as other social networking sites, probably because it uses proper input validation and isn't as free with allowing users to add scripts here there and everywhere on their profile!

    I have never used it but my younger brother put his phone contact details there when he came into the country to visit so that people back home will have his new uk number. Within 2 hrs of posting his number, he got a call from someone telling him he had won some books and enquring about his postal address to have them delivered.

    He gave it to them and then called me after that because he could not understand how the person got his contact details. Of course I knew what was hapening and made sure he sent the books back as soon as he received them.

    It was his fault for placing his personal details though (not the fault of facebook)

    I use it, I like it, but because I starting using myspace first, I prefer myspace!

    Again I dont put any details down I dont want people knowing, never had any problems with it myself.

    I use it to keep in touch with old work mates/school friends

    I much prefer it to the drab that is myspace, facebook is a much stronger platform going forward to be honest, I've actually found a bunch more friends on it too considering its relative age in comparison

    privacy? not really that concerned, I don't put any info out there that's not already out there anyway
