    Face is doing facial recognition for the US government....what's the difference? Anybody the state issued DL or ID has their face in the US government computers already.

    I'll get a Facebook account right after I let that little spy device Alexa in my home. So pretty much NEVER.

    You forgot to add the RFID chip imbedded in your arm or hand.

    I've got a Fbook account. I use it to gather info, not share it. I rarely ever post or comment on it. But there are a lot of good conservative pages to try to stay up to date on and I'm sure there are many I have not seen. Due diligence is necessary to weed out the misinformation. Just because it's a social network doesn't mean you have to be social.

    I have a tin foil Elmer Fudd hat I wear for extra protection.

    I'm glad they have started policing the lie mongers. Those guys suck.

    I said this would happen 20 yrs ago and no one believed me.

    My FB account was disabled by them and I'm not pursuing it.

    The fact that Zuckerburg sold user data to the russians and is not in jail is all i need to know.

    Do you have a smartphone? Most camera apps on new smartphones also do facial recognition. So you're going to have to stop having your photo taken all together.

    I deliberately and intentionally kept myself out of their sandbox. I have a very limited account there, which is more strategic control than actually giving two bits about the site.

    This is why it made me angry when someone else posted pictures of me on that site and "tagged" me with my name. :mad:

    replace facebook with "credit card" or "telephone number" or "social security number" and you'll get the same end result. You will be collected, stored, and categorized no matter what. Privacy is dead until it is taken back. Here's my response:

    But not only are they collecting data like everyone else they are shaping opinions and distorting news, searches and everything they touch. They are a political organization not just a money grubbing corporation at this point.

    According to my kids, FB is a joke. So I predict they'll be MySpace'd within the next 10 years or less.

    That is a likely outcome. But they probably have the cash to buy all the up and coming new platforms. My kids just snap chat and Instagram. They barely use email. And probably only get messages from me. Little heathens.

    No clue. My wife is the phone and interent police. But they are good kids so for the most part we trust them. Just a check now and then. Plus the eldest is about to turn 18 so if she isn't all coached up by now then we blew it.

    Facebook is the 35+ crowd now, my teenagers don't even log in anymore. They are on snap chat, or they just face time as a group on their phone or computers.
