as a policy i keep all my nefarious activities off of social media and the internet completely. Really it is just best policy to keep your felonies to yourself, as soon as you tell someone that is one too many people knowing your business.

I don't have a facebook. I just didn't find it an effective way of staying in touch with people.

Yea, I've never understood why people have such hate for them. I would much rather see ads for things I would actually want to buy and maybe even need.

Which is great if they're actually relevant to your life. I used to get ads to things I'd never need. Or they'd be for things like, "Christian Dating service" (doesn't get much lamer than that, does it?). I suspect this was partly because I didn't really spend time going, "This ad is relevant, and this one isn't". But still, for some people, customized ads are just an annoyance.

Nope. They all ready have my shit by now anyways so quitting facebook ain't gonna do much.

Besides, with the size and scope of the things that the NSA is collecting/spying on, our Facebook posts are the least of our problems. I'm way more worried about them collecting my emails, phone calls, internet history, search traffic, and system scrape.

If you aren't worried about that stuff, then you haven't been paying attention to what they are doing.

Doesn't effect me. I have been against facebook since I first heard about it, have too many family members on there, plus my crazy friend who is probably on the terrorist watch list. Guess it is too late to warn him.

Anyways, I am worried about being watched at other places, kind of. Though, I think the only thing they would find out, is that I love music, I like to read stuff about Disney, and that I probably should talk to a therapist.

Nope, not worried about them. And I too prefer relevant/targeted ads on e-mail/website pages, it's not creepy

like not being on facebook is going to stop governments/corporations from knowing everything about what you do online anyway

It's not like Google doesn't spy on what we do already. And since I never do anything illegal, I have no reason to be worried.

I totally get this line of thinking but seriously, at what point does that not apply anymore?

Mostly playing devil's advocate out of boredom here, but I mean what if it were required for an officer to live with you and watch over you all day every day to make sure you never do anything illegal? I mean you don't do anything illegal, you have no reason to be worried right?
