Can you be a little more specific? What info of ours is splattered?
Hi Carly, I can't tell you about any of those groups either. I use FB to stay in contact with family and friends, but I avoid groups and such. Sorry
Two experiences had me abandon Facebook. The first one was getting a new computer which thrilled me with how much faster it ran and how much nimbler the internet was. I opened my Facebook page for an hour and my computer was noticeably slower the next day. Since I'd barely done anything with it, I checked some numbers and did a factory reset. The amount of junk I had picked up was ridiculous. The second was allowing a friend to access her Facebook account and finding very quickly that it had pulled the phone numbers from my contact list and were offering them to both of us as potential friend invites. This included the plumber, employees, the funeral home, and the landscaper.
I occasionally must log into Facebook but I never do it from my phone and I always make sure my PC is logged out of my email accounts. I had all my Facebook settings as restricted as possible and still ran into collection of information I found unacceptable.
Doesn't give me much to look forward to. I mainly did it to stay in touch with my family. I am amazed at the number of people who know friends of mine who want to be my friend. Why? I don't know you and you live far away from me. I do have my settings set as privately as i can. Maybe i will rethink joining any mc groups and stick to the forum. Thanks for the advice. Carly
There ARE Privacy Settings you can choose to make your FB Page only viewable by Friends (which would also be your Family)
There's a Quick Help ? section on the top right side of your Page.
You DO need to view your General Settings and Privacy Settings every once in a while, because FB seems to change them. That's my experience anyway.
What you can't control is what your Friends/Family 'allow' the Public to see.
BUT REMEMBER, ANY PHOTOS YOU POST ON FACEBOOK BECOME THE PROPERTY OF FACEBOOK AND CAN BE USED FOR WHATEVER PURPOSE THEY WANT. In other words, you are giving up your Rights TO FB to any photos you post on FB. Maybe if you have Copyrighted them all . . . but who does that?
I have a CLEAR understanding with my Friends/Family to NOT POST pics of me. So far, no one has violated it.
I can't believe what people post on FB. When there away from home,/how long they'll be gone, pics of their cherished possession inside their house, if their kids are home alone, etc. A criminal's delight!
I use FB, but have my Privacy Settings verrrry tight and check them often.
So, take the time to view & select EVERY SINGLE Privacy Setting.
There's a Quick Help (?) on the right side of your FB Page.
Hope this helps!

P.S. I am the Family Archivist, so to share Photos & other Documents, I've been using DropBox for years and years.
It's been years sense I had a FB account so maybe things have changed but not by much .
I had a friend that wanted me to join so I did we did not correspond much so I got into playing their HO games . then all the games I had played the level , scores all that info plus some personal info was advertised and on top of that to keep playing I HAD to invite friends , at which I DID NOT HAVE because I had just joined , I was locked out . So the account sat idol for 6 months or so an it is now closed never to be reopened . What games I play outside MC and how I play them is no ones business but mine and sense they are one person player games they do not require friends to join those games sense there is no friend gifting
Now Midnight Castle is a whole nother story .
I belong to Midnight Castle help group for three devices and that group is the best, I am in that forum almost all day, the group is private, you have to find some who belongs to the group to have you join. If you want I can get you in because the group is not public . So if you want to join you can ask me.
Yikes -Good word of warning about logging out of email etc when letting others use our computers/devices.
To add to this - the additional apps including those dumb quizzes and filters that seem harmless but receive the same privileges you may have granted Facebook. Well not YOU, I mean in general!
