So long Facebook …

15 Sep

I’ve had my issues with Facebook over the years. Frankly, my main issue is that I’ve never felt safe on there. Now I recently learned that your Facebook account can be cloned. People can create another site that appears to be yours – without your knowledge or permission – and use it for whatever purposes they wish – and people will think it is you.

Since Facebook apparently can’t stop this, I’m getting out. I suppose it’s not Facebook’s fault – the Net is rife with crooks – and perhaps the chances of such a thing occurring are slim – but, for me, this is unacceptable.

Too bad.

    This can happen on any platform. The hackers are everywhere.

    Definitely. I know there’s concerns even on the blogs. Maybe, despite all their wonders we’ve become too attached/dependent on this stuff? Equifax is just the latest.
