    . . . and never will. I read this article a long time ago, and thought I'd share an insight into Mark Zuckerberg's attitude towards user privacy that dates all the way back to 2010. Please read all the excerpts from his own instant messages to a fellow student at Harvard.

    NOTE: If and when I label someone a "dumb f**k", it only applies to the individual in question and they truly deserve it. In Zuckerberg's case, he applies it to everyone he considers dumb enough to sign up as a Facebook user.

    I'm with ya, John. Years ago, friends were bugging me to get on MySpace, lol. I didn't see any point to it and now it's faded away and gone.

    I kinda view Facebook in the same way, but it does seem to offer a little more value (but not enough to get me to join).

    More reasons not to join (or leave, if one has an acct): https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/social...ds-call-history-stoking-privacy-furor-n860006

    edit: left out a word

    That's a shining example of the power that consumers have. :clap3:

    Hit 'em in the purse, where it hurts the most.

    I do not use FB personally.... but Mrs. C does.
    I'm going to install this FireFox add on called "FaceBook Container"
    Hopefully that will offer some better privacy
