Seriously, Dude...have you not been paying attention to much of the world's user base over the past decade? I say with no hint of irony or disingenuousness that there are FAR more people who treat their time on the internet with as little attention to detail as if they were watching a living room Kodak Carousel slide show. It's THOSE idiots (present company excluded, of course!) who must be protected and treated like children.

But I'm lonely and don't have many friends so I let everyone in.
My question is, since I am not familiar with the old settings scheme, are the new setting options that different or watered down from the old. Not that one time page that pops up, but if you go to your Settings page?
Well sorta kinda in a way yeah maybe - still more of a social thing . There been way to many people whose lives were ruined by posting shiit on these sites . If it is not private then it is social , H3ll even emails are not private for that matter .
Anyway the scary parts is when employers start asking for your - FaceBook , Twitter , MySpace addresses when you apply for a job .
If a prospective employer asked me for any of my personal non-work social contact info, I'd reply by asking them for their home address and all their facebook etc. details. If they're not happy to hand that out to me, then I'm not happy to hand mine out to them.
Reminds me of the Seinfeld telemarketing sketch where someone keeps phoning him to sell him stuff, so he says: sorry, I can't talk right now, but if you give me your home number I'll call you as soon as I have a moment.
