    They just have to like them on Facebook. It’s the vote that counts.

    It’s like or ignore, no place to dislike.

    Johnson draws some really odd characters. What is with that Frankenstein head-top of hers???

    That is just his standard tied back hairdo with earings. Nothing weird there.

    It’s not stupid… it’s one of the great marketing scams of all time.

    It’s evil genius: plays on people’s vanity, curiosity, and other foibles, all in the name of ‘staying in touch’. I guess it’s like so many other forms of media: a good tool, but a lousy lifestyle.

    I am on Facebook but every few weeks I deactivate my account and go “off the grid” for a few weeks so to speak. I don’t delete it, just deactivate. Mine is just to keep in touch with family and friends as I live in a very rural area.

    I totally deleted FB. It got pretty ridiculous after awhile reading about the minute details of someone’s life. The people I really care about I get emails and phone calls from and vise versa. And what about people who refuse to get on the internet, let alone get a computer? My mother had a hard time with a clerk who said she could just get on the computer and go to their website to do whatever it was my mother wanted done. My mother finally glared at her and said she didn’t have a computer, didn’t intend to get one, and she should just do the job she was hired to do. It got done and I’m sure after my mother left, the clerk had a few choice words about her but didn’t say anything if she wanted to keep her job. Some young people just don’t get it. Not everyone wants a computer.

    On the right had side of facebook (after you sign in), go to Account Setting,then security setting and there will a link to “Deactivate account”. It won’t delete anything but people won’t be able to bug you on the page. It’s like putting your account on a hibernate setting. I do it every few weeks or so.
    To activate your account, you just have to log in to facebook.

    Anyone who thinks they can drop “off the grid” just by not having a computer or deleting (or not having) a Facebook account, is dangerously out of touch with the reality of the world they’re living in.

    You are “on line” whether you like it or not. Even if you don’t have, and never had a computer. Everything there is to know about you is on line. Don’t believe me? Check “maps” on your cell phone (or borrow a friends, even basic phones have this now). Type in your street, then zoom in. You can see your house!Heh, and that’s not all! Anything and I mean ANYTHING anyone could ever want or need to know about you is on-line. The steps necessary to drop “off the grid” are practically impossible! Ever been to a bank, mall, store, parking garage…. Congratulations! you’re on camara! Know what that means? Yup, what you look like is in several databases.Shall I go on?So, lie to yourself all you like. Truth is, even if you never use a computer, you’re on-line! The day is coming where you won’t be able to do certain things if you don’t have a computer. Hell, even a cell phone can do most of what computers can do. Even regular phones are becoming “smart phones”. Oh, and your phone has a GPS chip in it. Know all those cool apps that make it easy for you to find things?Yeah, they also make it easy to find you. Go ahead and shut off the GPS feature, you can be tracked by the cell towers your phone connects to.Sleep tight.

    I think it’s funny all the people commenting on here how they don’t use Facebook. But, you all use message boards. That is what’s called a distinction without a difference. Don’t think this site collects your information? It does! So sad. Banks, Stores, Resturants… any place you have transactions with have information about you stored on line. Even your employer (and the Social Security Agency too).

    In this case ignorance is not bliss, and what you don’t know (or refuse to learn) can, and likely at some point will hurt you. I know enough to know I don’t know enough about what people know about or have access to about me. But at least I’m not lying to myself about it.

    I do what I can to control my personal information. I don’t give it to anyone that doens’t absolutely “NEED” it, and I don’t post anything on-line that I don’t have to.
