    I've been a huge fan of FB, but the recent changes are making me rethink.

    I've never been a huge fan, but it has its uses.

    I'm encouraging most of my friends to move over to Google+. Once enough are there, I'll probably stop using facebook entirely.

    More reason to believe facebook is owned by the CIA.

    Rhody + Faceplant == Bad...

    Not speaking for others... just my humble opinion, the potential benefit versus cost do not add up no matter how I slice it.

    Here is an idea, post on your wall that you are downsizing. Tell all of your supposed "friends" that if they want to contact you to have them PM or IM you with their real e-mails. Your real friends will, as for the rest, who cares !? :blushing: :devil:

    Facebook also never deletes any of your information or pictures when you deactivate your account. You have to go out of your way to tell them that you want to delete your account, and then you have to not access it for a couple of weeks before its actually gone.

    If anyone here is sure their personal information has been compromised, and what they did to rectify the situation, please DISCUSS !!! (channeling Pengy once again...)

    Perhaps your situation can help others from suffering the same fate...
