To those who don't know, NSA is officially saving every bit of data you use on facebook, so it can be later used for "research" on that person. I also would like that link removed.

I was under the impression that it is only used by middle-aged (and older) women anyway.  It is in my household, and those of my relatives and in-laws.  I actually cant think of a single male i know that uses it, not just in the family, but also friends

Im sure the NSA is fascinated that Heather down the road has had her hair permed, and Sarah's Pug had to go to the vets due to incontinence, and what Nancy's recipe for quiche contains.

BTW, perhaps Filthbook or Failbook work better as humourous derogatory synonyms, even Faecesbook if you dont mind getting a little childish about it :)

Well, some people do use facebook so it would be pretty stupid to remove it because you feel "unsafe" with it being there :) <3

Wow, you kids are simply wow. Anyone born after 1995 is just so absorbed on their dirt book, like a plague. Read a book for once like 1984. Because you accept this, it becomes more common, yet those who oppose it are laughed at.

Is it a strict cut-off? Any leeway for people born 1st January 1996?

it's so much worse than 1984, nobody is even watching them but they keep agitating themselves in front of the screen in hopes of being seen.

So anyone that´s born after 1995 is uneducated or neglect the truth? How about you go and stick your comments in your pocket since they are close minded and just there to disturb. Clearly you just suck up whatever someone say and make it your own opinion. If you actually read the book 1984 and analyzed it (as you freaking should!) you would have noticed how absolutely boring and mediocre it really is...so tired of you tinfoil hats taking everything that fits your narrative.

In all seriousness, how not using one of the many site on internet is considered weird?

Thats right, thats what mobile phones are for

We (me and my fellow students in Britain during the 80s) had demonstrations to protest the impending idea of everyone carrying ID cards, in the end the idea was scrapped because it was too costly for the government.    Flash forward a few decades, now to use a moble phone you need to register it or you cant get all the "cool" apps and features, and hey presto you are now carrying an ID card that doubles as a tracking device, and best of all they made you buy it yourself.  Some of you really should read 1984, in fact everyone should, even if afterwards you reject it.  It was once a fine piece of fiction concerning  the loss of freedom, lately its become a handbook for facistic politicians.  Its not a big book, it can probably be read during next maintenance

Sheep that function as their own sheepdogs... makes me glad to know i'll be dead in a few years

If you are doing something that you don't want the government knowing then certainly you shouldn't be using media like Facebook to post your views because it could come back to haunt you should you find yourself facing a judge in court or a tribunal.  And if you think you can actually do anything about it (government intelligence gathering)... well good luck with that.  I seriously doubt that this company will remove the link to Facebook because the government uses it to obtain information on people of interest to them.

Most people just don't care enough to concern themselves with stuff like this or they feel that if you're not doing anything wrong then you don't have anything  to worry about..

It's my view that Edward Snowden got it right when he said:

"Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say,"

I'm 61 years old now and I'm more concerned about the state of affairs in the US than I have ever been in my whole life. Times have changed and in my opinion things are going to get a whole lot worse before they have a chance to get better. If they ever do.

What's even worse is that facebook, through all their widgets everywhere, is storing a boatload of information about you even if you never signed up.

It's truly terrifying.
