Windows 7: Verifying My Identity

Verifying My Identity

Before, they used to say 'to verify the account owner'. Now, they are saying 'to verify your identity'.
Creating a question and answer is not enough. Phone number and more wanted.
Anyway, I was chilling out; this came to my mind.
When I tell people that I do not have an account on any social networking sites, they don't believe me.
'You are a computer major, and you don't have an account'.
My job is to create the pages/softwares you view/use, not to use them personally.
Have a nice night!

I did not have a facebook account either until very very recently when i was literally forced to join by some acquaintances.

I do not understand the appeal of pasting up all your most intimate and private moments to be broadcasted to the world. All that information is a goldmine for the company that can sell your information to countless advertisers that track you relentlessly over the internet. Information retention on their servers is another touchy subject; i.e. once you post something, you literally cannot remove it.

As the saying goes, if you're not paying for it and it's free, you are not the intended customer, you are the product.
