    The whole social networking thing is a bit weird. Before someone picks me up on it, I know this is a social network but at least we all have something in common (MB):thumb:. My daughter & Son are on Facebook and have "Friends" they have never met.:confused: They have "real" friends who they see on a regular basis in a "social" way, how is it "social" to sit in front of a computer at home?? Surely they should be retitled "Unsocial" networks as the vast majority on there never go out to "socialise":D

    I only use facebook to snoop on people.

    I dont have a real facebook account of my own - just multiple ones depending on who I might want to pretend to be that day.

    I think its a great tool. :)

    Be very careful what you put on facebook. It cannot be easily erased, too many people are collecting and collating the data. Very scary....

    So it can scan and recognise your face? That's quite worrying
