Any one else creeped out by Facebook?

I finalle broke down at the insistance of friends and went to sign up. There was a list of 30 or so people who wanted to be my friend if I ever joined - most of them I do not know - it's so creepy that I cancelled my account already - just weird.

  • I never had that happen. I have facebook so I can talk to old high school and college friends and see what they are up to. It has been a great resource for that.

  • I'm not creeped out by it. If someone wants to be my "friend" and I have no idea who they are, I just ignore it. I keep my profile set to private also, to try to avoid the weirdos. LOL. What I like about Facebook is getting in touch with old friends!

  • I notice that people are more apt to add you as a friend on Facebook whether they know you are not...sometimes people I don't know add me because they see me on someone else's friend list.

  • it is different than cafemom that's for sure, cm is so much more organized, I like it more, but a lot of my old friends won't come on here, so to keep in touch with them and to see what they are up to I joined facebook, but like I said I don't like it as much.

I hope I only get my Likeable People there.... Plus+ I have one Pix. of me its the one here & I can't down load it so I have that Generic pix. of me up there..

  • I am still a little paranoid about all my information about family etc out there on the pictures of my daughter etc...I keep it very generic and use it more for my business.

  • I've only had a couple of people that I don't know try to be my friend. All I do is hit the "ignore" button and go on with it. Turns out that they were just friends of some of my other friends.

  • The CIA started Face Book I can see why it creep you out. They also will keep any pictures you put on there to use how ever they want.
    There is something going on to change things??
    Just never put important info on there.
