Has the NSA scandal make you want to quit Facebook?

I'm thinking once I'm done university I'll stop my account.

I've got lots of friends on it from around the world, but hell, I lived just fine without it before Facebook came around, and the principle of being spied on pisses me off.

What does the pit think?

I have nothing on Facebook that would make me worried that the government is going to arrest me. There's more interesting people out there to spy on.

No because I dont murder people or blow things up. Also, I do not plan various illegal activities using the internet. I do that in person with people I trust.

Also, I think i'm the last person on FB with a fake name.

No.

There won't be a Booksodus where everyone just quits Facebook, and while there are good alternatives, there's nobody I know with an account on them. They're not that interested in alternatives.

NSA doesn't have much to do with Facebook, I think. Facebook was selling that information for a while. Most of it is public anyway.

Nah, I'm not interesting enough for the NSA to single me out and spy on me. And it's not like I can do anything to stop them.


Government does what it wants. I'm not gonna let Obama ruin my day-to-day life by caring about this. I've got other things to worry about and focus on.

Facebook was already giving people's info away.

Nah, I hate being spied on very much, but I don't think deleting fb will change much.

1. I do nothing wrong and little can be gained from info in my facebook account.

2. They are going to find ways to gather info on me regardless.



What really pisses me off is customized ads though, those just feel creepy.

If they really wanted to the government can just track everything you're doing on the internet regardless of if you're on Facebook

there was plenty of reason to delete your account before, FB is comprised of 99% inane shit and I can contact my friends without it just fine.

Obvious answer is Adblock. I don't know, I'm fairly sure your profile data/emails etc are just parsed for certain strings that are matched to tags for various ads. It's not nearly as invading as it sounds (although I can understand why people wouldn't want their private emails parsed). I really doubt anyone is actually reading any of it. Anyway, location based ads have been around based on connecting IP for ages and nobody seems to be alarmed about them anymore.

I put on Facebook that I was born in Jamaica and that I was living in Switzerland even though I'm actually in Scotland.

I started getting a bunch of ads in German for Swiss services...
