is unsure throughout facebook. Info can be private and can suddenly appear however careful people are with settings. I think facebook is great for sharing lighthearted information and holiday photos, for many more serious or private stuff is best shared another way.
I turned on to PC advisor today because I was intending to start a thread about Direct Messages on facebook. I was going to send one today and couldn't find a link. Ok I can email the guy but it was a semi private matter that I would normally just send a quick msg about.
If I am derailing the thread, apologies and I can start another thread!
Think you have mis-understood the phrase 'common practise'my post is exclusively about Facebook What is common is the downloading of software and ticking the 'You agree to our rules' box without reading them. By coincidence the Metro newspaper has today published an article,accusing Facebook of putting its users security at risk,and repeat my comments on accepting the Facebook terms without reading the small print. Internet security company 'Sophos'is advising users to remove immediately all phone numbers and address's from their Facebook accounts.
Apart from the fact that Facebook have done their usual about turn and withdrawn this feature, there is a very easy way to maintain your privacy on Facebook - don't give them your address & phone number...
