A world with­out our Face­book pro­files

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

HAVE we ever thought about Face­book and what we are do­ing with it?

Ever thought about the amount of time we sit and play with about 90 per cent of what we could be do­ing of real ben­e­fit to our­selves?

It’s so much eas­ier to play with our "friends" that use it, and com­pare oth­ers to our­selves.

We don’t have to post let­ters, set-up emails, at­tach pictures and other info that can be sent with it, and then await a re­ply (whilst await­ing we can check­out oth­ers on Face­book just for the info, maybe get a cof­fee or some sweets to keep us in­trigued, just for a few min­utes only? Gee my weight is build­ing up with these sit and eat pe­ri­ods).

In the mean­time, ev­ery­thing we do with Face­book, pictures we at­tach, and in­for­ma­tion we want to be pri­vate to just each other, is avail­able world­wide to any­one that is a cheat and doesn’t care about pri­vacy, to them­selves or oth­ers.

Re­mem­ber our in­come/ex­pen­di­ture files we keep?

These can be avail­able to oth­ers if shared on Face­book with some­one we trust as these files can then be traced and read.

Maybe we should think about the ac­tual wasted time we have and down­load a pro­gram that will teach us just what a PC is.

Do we re­ally want to send all our pri­vate in­for­ma­tion world­wide to any­one that is not trust­wor­thy?

Think hard about the use of Face­book and what you in­form the whole world of. Brian Antaw
