Scott, you are absolutely right on that. Who wants any of those social sites. I take the highway any time they want to link me to Facebook or any of the other nuisance services (or disservices).

You are definitely not being silly. I could tell you how you ought to respond to them, but that kind of language would not be appropriate here.

I have never used FB or anything like it. Any site that requires it I don't want to be on.
Any body I want to contact I use the phone or email and that is seldom.
Where did this great urge come from that everybody has to be friends with everybody in the world and share personal thoughts information.

Seemes to be a trend of the times that many people just want to babble.

Agreed, although this can be a great security feature. I like the 2 way authentication method. I have it turned on for a few of my accounts. Works well.

I have a mobile phone but will not give them the number. If they need that number, then I don't need them.

Exactly, I don't even have the urge to call anyone from the house. If it was not for her mother who needs to call 3 times each day (even when we are in Europe), I probably would not even have a phone. But I guess women need that thing.
