It is Scare-mongering.

You can only be located from facebook If you use their aps on an Ipod. If you are on a regular PC or laptop, this can not happen.

Yes, when you are on Facebook, your friends can see If you are on-line but It still Is not proof. My husband uses my profile to up-date my aps all the time but any-one looking would think It Is myself on-line. If you set the security settings, no-one but your friends can see you on-line.

To be totally sure, do not use facebook on an Ipod and do not lie about where you are.

I did find the games quite addictive. I had to wrench myself away because I was getting very little else done. Especially in the evenings after work.

At the point at which they changed my privacy settings to make my data more available I deleted my account and insisted that they deleted all the data they held about me.

That I had to fight with them to get them to do so is an indication of their lack of scruples.

just realized why I wasn't notified Kathy.....I haven't had any notifications of any sort now for 3 months, I contacted fb and they said they are getting them on their end.

I have no idea why I haven't been getting them as my settings are correct, fb said to try it on someone else's computer, and I keep forgetting.

so it's been a hassle as I have to search and search to find comments.

I just checked the new fb settings and I have revised some.

thank you Kathy!:-6

I'm just not a big FB user...I just don't get it.

I deleted my 1st account as I kept getting befriended by my former students. My school frowns on FB, so I don't want any flak from them.

I've opened up a new account under a different name, one that my school doesn't know. I only opened a new account to keep in touch with my Irish rellys and 3 FG members who don't post here anymore.

I have a very addictive personality and don't need to get involved in farmville. Jeez, I'd be up all night worrying about getting the farm work done:wah:

I don't blame you there, you certainly don't need flak from students, you put up with that all year.:wah:

Great idea Kathy opening a new account where no one knows your name accept your friends and family from back home.

I was playing the MafiaWars thing for a while. Lost interest while I was in China, and couldn't get to FB.

Will probably just drop it.

I very rarely post my status. I did have a friend on FB, a neighbour of mine and she drove me mad up-dating her status every hour.

" Kirsty Is making a cup of tea.

Kirsty Is thinking of having a bath.

Kirsty Is eating a doughnut.

aggggggggg

Kirsty has just been strangled by her neighbour.

Kirsty has just been de-registered by her neighbour.

You can control them with friend lists and limiting which lists get such notices.

You have your own settings there, my settings are set 'for friends only'

only those can see what you post.



If someone asks you for a friends request...you can accept or deny.

let me know if you join...we can meet up there as well.

There are quite a few of us there from here and everyone uses their real name.

You have to see what Nomad (Brian) posts:yh_rotfl

As I understand it, I can click on someone else's comment on your wall and see that person's wall, then click on any comment there to go to another wall, and so on. Is that right?

you can click (post) on any 'friends' profile, if you have your settings for 'friends only' which I advise, if you have it on 'everyone', then anyone on fb can see what you have said.

you will also see 'news feed', where everyone of your friends has posted.

most often whomever you post to ends up on newsfeed.

click on your own profile, click friends, and click on who's page you wish to go to, then simply post or answer them.

You will also get email notifications if someone has answered you or visa versa.



You can also edit or delete your posts.

Maybe this will make it clearer. I found it at

Teacher's Guide to Using Facebook (Read Fullscreen)

The Implications of Having Access to Student Information on Facebook

If you do interact with your students on Facebook, you are going to be privy to information that they have used to construct their online identities. You now will likely have significantly more knowledge of your student than would otherwise be available to you strictly in the school setting. The following are some implications that you should be aware of:

1. You will be able to see your student's profile picture and any other pictures they have posted on their profile page.

2. You will see who their “friends” are online if they have not filtered it to prevent you from

seeing their friend list.

3. You will see comments posted on their wall

4. You will see comments they post on others' walls

5. You will see their status updates

6. You will see their information which could tell you everything from their date of birth to their hobbies and interests.

7. You will see what applications they install.

Funny as Accountable ...My boy and his friends found one of their teachers they don't like on RSVP...under the name 'Kitler'..he still doesn't know it yet but it's been a running joke for a very long time.

And you can actually turn all that off from others you don't know..You can choose who sees all that info ..most don't bother though.

I went to a 2-day professional development workshop Tuesday & Wednesday and they gave each of us an account with Project Share. One of the teachers told me the interface was very close to Facebook. Perhaps I'll use that instead.

I have a facebook page. Its good for me cause I have family I comunicate with through facebook. My family is so far away and some of them I never get to see at all cause their too far away and I'm too broke these days to even be able to drive around even here in my own town. So facebook helps me keep in touch. My family who wont life a finger to email anyone will get on facebook and leave each other messages.
