Another little gem that irks me is the mobile number demand for "account security" reasons...

I agree one should never be forced to watch ads and video's or sign up for things they don't want to. As it relates to FB it's all in the eye's of the user. I enjoy having a place just as here to communicate and re-connect with friends and FB has pulled lost friends back into my life that I truly cherish......is it for everyone of course not, but blanket statements about it are just personal opinions, valuable but singular as mine is.

I have a limited understanding of FB but I know it involves "liking" and a wall and "favorites and such crappola. IT was this liking stuff I think a bud of mine had his laptop seriously infected. The story goes he used FB to connect to his nephew who isn't real computer bright.

The nephew apparently liked everybody, or something like that. Someone in his lineage was a scammer who put something up which was the infection so those upstream trusted it since it appeared to come from this silly nephew.

To make it short, I spent 3 hours disinfecting my bud's PC and the nephew threw his away, lol. Uncle learned a good FB lesson.

FWIW, I use a Norton utility which did the disinfection, this was after two other "experts" had failed.

It's just like the caution with any email accounts, you don't open things that look fishy.

I agree not to open attachments from unknowns. But then many older people get trojanized and send out attachments that are bogus and includes a payload. That is nice about having a Virtual Disk that is not connected to any other disks or the network. Works for me and I have seen some really interesting scams and infectious programs.

I never trust anyone. I am not paranoid, it is just that I first believe that everyone is out to get me.
