    FB Strikes again.....ALL THE PHONE NUMBERS in your phone are now on Facebook! go to the top right of the screen, click on ACCOUNT, click on EDIT FRIENDS, left side of screen and click CONTACTS. you will see all phone numbers from your phone (FB friends or not) are published that you have stored in your mobile phone. TO REMOVE, go to right column, click on "this page."

    I have the Rick Roll number listed on my Facebook. I don't mind people seeing it.

    EDIT: Oh, I get it! For a cell phone. Well, I'm too cheap to pay for mobile Internet. Problem solved.

    What's the point of being surprised at this point? Anyone who puts anything on Facebook and thinks it is private is a farkin moron.

    Facebook is a place for antisocial people to be social. And then they wonder what's happening to youth these days. They have trouble adjusting to a formal environment, such as job interviews, because they communicate more through texts and the Internet then face to face.

    ORRRRRRRRRRR it's just another way to keep in touch with people, a tool to be used however you want. I have friends all over the country that I can't regularly see and who are extremely busy, so the phone isn't the best (even if I wasn't a man and actually liked talking on the phone). So I can keep connections until the opportunity to drink beer together in person again presents itself.

    what an original insight.

    what Bryan said. it's not like everyone is talking through facebook every second. even if facebook weren't around, there are those who are just inherently shy. school, which is almost completely face to face communication, takes up approximate a 1/5 of a kids life while they are in it, and i doubt that facebook and texting occupy the other 4/5s. and it's actually Asocial, ANTIsocial would be someone wanting to kill people, and stuff.

    But look at the amount of people who actually consider speaking with people on Facebook a social life. I know at least 20 people personally that do that. I do have a thing against social networking, but still.

    why is it not? as long as people are communicating, it's still socializing even if it's not face-to-face.

    Well see, I'm sort of on the fence about this because while I agree wholeheartedly that facebook trolling isn't a real form of socializing, I do use it to communicate with people online, many of which I'd never be in contact with otherwise.
