    Bump cakdep re: information brokers such as Choicepoint!

    Parading on Facebook isn't the same as buying socks at Walmart. Where else does your photo, photos of your associates, biography, personal info, buying habits and geographical movements get wrapped up in a neat, highly public package...for sale...forever? To uhhhh...who knows??

    Facebook is unique because members inform it in such detail.

    Bill, you buy petfood, but neither the Big Store, nor your petfood company has access to ALL your consumer demographics including your occupation and education level. Facebook isn't just market analysis on steroids-

    Facebook is Hackers Paradise.

    It's an everyday occurrence if you are a computer user and surf the web, you are tracked in whatever you do. I surfed for pet supplies and now I keep seeing side pop ups with pet supplies. it's everywhere.

    Meh. All the big stores do this, too. Are you all going to stop shopping at your local grocery chain, department store, or big box store? Probably not. Shop or not. Facebook or not. But there's nothing new here.

    Exactly why I don't have a Facebook account and don't ever plan on having one.

    Choice point and all these information brokers such as background check companies need to be heavily monitored for their activities!

    I'm not buying their purpose for this. Thankfully, I refuse to open a facebook page/account.
