Not overly great but fine for linking videos and stuff for friends to see that aren't on here. Just make sure you set up the security and info options as if you don't FB will hand them to anyone. You have to do the same for each game you start too, so I don't bother with them.

OK, seriously seriously. Would you like to catch up with friends you've not seen for donkey's years? And can you also deal with re-establishing contact with all those other folk (incuding distant relatives) that you've forgotten about?

OK seriously, seriously, seriously. Give it a go. I think the pros outweigh the cons. And if you get pissed off with it, just delete your account.

And eck's got a good point - don't add folk you can't be arsed with.


Agreed - common sense really. If it's someone you couldn't stand back in the day, it's likely they haven't got any better with age.

Just digging this up..not been one for that type of social networking,read and heard about too many negs about FB..do my social network thing on a few forums,using e-mail and face to face contact but seems the whole world is on it :?
Is it really that good to keep in touch?What about frequent security setting FB revises leaving loop holes,pictures that once put in belong to them,wall postings that can't be erased etc etc and the links from FB to you email etc

Just newby questions about it really..am interested but a bit aprehensive ....

This is a common misconception, when you post images you give them a non-exclusive right to use those images in accordance with your privacy settings - they don't own them - they need this right so they can show your images at all and if you close your account they loose that right - it is standrd practice across most photo sites as they need to cover their asses from being sued.

The key point (4) below is not to make an image available to "everyone" as facebook are basically saying anyone can see it in or out of facebook and they have no control over anything that arises from that situation.


**********Facebooks terms************
You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:

1. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos ("IP content"), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook ("IP License"). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
2. When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).
3. When you use an application, your content and information is shared with the application. We require applications to respect your privacy, and your agreement with that application will control how the application can use, store, and transfer that content and information. (To learn more about Platform, read our Privacy Policy and Platform Page.)
4. When you publish content or information using the "everyone" setting, it means that you are allowing everyone, including people off of Facebook, to access and use that information, and to associate it with you (i.e., your name and profile picture).
5. We always appreciate your feedback or other suggestions about Facebook, but you understand that we may use them without any obligation to compensate you for them (just as you have no obligation to offer them).
