    Re: Who's on Facebook?

    If you want to sign up for facebook, you can create a separate e-mail account, and only use that one for FB activities.    That will prevent your 'usual' e-mail address from getting spammed.    

    I have a FB account, but I rarely check it, and I rarely check the e-mail account I use to access it.  When I do check that e-mail account, I spend a fair amount of time deleting junk.

    Every so often, I will post some photos or links on FB.   I think this is the greatest utility of FB - it allows to easily post videos, photos, music, comments, links that you might want to share with others.   It's effectively a kind of personal website.

    I know from folks my age (I'm 53) who are FB addicts and seem to be on all the time.   My kids are, too, but I don't check on them.   I tell them there's a kind of mental "brick wall" I keep between me and them.

    In any case, I think I might check my account once every two weeks or so.

    There's a big difference between FB membership and active use. The whole Facebook business enterprise is built around a very clever, even devious scheme for harvesting email address books and then sending out invitations on the user's behalf. That's what enabled their geometric growth.

    So . . . .  How do you prevent this address book harvesting?  (I am not a member.)
