Me too. I tried Facebook and tested its integrity by setting up two accounts that should not have had any means of associating with one another unless they breach your privacy. I made sure that I didn’t have the same ‘friends’ in common to be sure that they don’t simply have computerized analysis of associations. When I received targeted sponsoring regarding personal information on one of the accounts that I didn’t so much as hint to anyone, I knew that they had to determine this indirectly. Not only was the information unknowable by that account, I didn’t even indicate this on the first account. The only way I figured that they could associate this was by some contact from one of my ‘friends’ from the first account. I used the first account under my regular name (Scott Mayers) while the other was under my birth name. I’m guessing perhaps that one of my family members discussed this within email exchanges!
I do have a Twitter account but recognize its risks. I am using it to follow Big Brother and other fun stuff.
For example, here’s some quotes from God on Twitter:
“I have never been more ashamed of making Florida the model for the human penis.”
“Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. But why are you walking around giving men fish? That’s weird, dude.”
“Once in a while people do something so stupid, even My son yells “Jesus fucking Christ!””
“Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Neither. The rooster came first.”
