Everyone is afraid that the government has a national database with every detail about you on it. Actually, we created it for them and without a shred of work on their end!
I'm going to guess that most people here have a Facebook profile. A lot will potentially have every ounce of information that could possibly ever be needed to track you down and find out who/what is dear to you. After all its the "cool" thing to do now isn't it?
Your friends (how, when and where you met them), your family, where you live, your phone number, pictures of you/mates (labelled too)/family, your favourite colour, your best mates in order of importance to you, what car you drive, who/what you are a fan of, your girlfriend, what TV shows you enjoy, music you enjoy, religion, what political party you are in favour of, what gigs/parties you are going to attend, what University/School you are at (or ever been to), where you work, where you want to work, what food you eat, where you like to eat........ and the lists goes on and on.
Forget Dating websites lol, they have everything they need to know about you right there. All information is almost guaranteed to be correct as your peers know when you are lying. If you don't have one you are an "outsider" - just as planned.
The government doesn't even need their own databases; everyone has done it for them, willingly.
In my opinion, it is a conspiracy in itself. If you treasure your privacy and freedom you shouldn't have a facebook account.
This isn't just for your small community or you country. It's the ENTIRE world.
It's a world database.
Maybe the microchip will never even be necessary as you update your position and whereabouts manually so all of your "friends" know.
The last generation might be slow on "catching up" with the youth when it comes to social networking, but they are indeed the last generation. You can guarentee that this type of profiling on the internet is not a passing phenomena.
Consider this: 80-90% of all college students in America have a facebook account. This is for the next generation.

My younger sister created a Facebook account for me without my knowledge, and sent requests to all my friends.
Maybe she's in on it!

Why is it only after the "big thing" on the internet, or whatever innovative meme goes mainstream, that these mooks come out of the woodwork? Oh, what that thing is popular, its clearly a tool of the ebil guvment

This guy's kind of got a point, actually. Not the conspiracy part, but the rest, sure. I mean, as concerned as people are about privacy under any other circumstance, here they are uploading vast amounts of personal information onto Myspace and Facebook, where anyone can read them.
Plus, employers have started looking up prospective employees on these sites, trying to find out information that people wouldn't share in an interview, so clearly it can be used in the manner he describes.

I have one, but I don't put much information on it.

My Facebook site says I grew up in Worcester, MA, it tells what college I went to and that I majored in Earth Science there, I like Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, and Rush (the band), my favorite books are On the Origin of Species and Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and I'm an Atheist. All this is very interesting to my friends (maybe), but it's of interest to national intelligence, how?

Of course, because everybody goes to Facebook, dates by internet.......................and they never thought that they have a register office.

I'm 18, and don't have Facebook. Some people are surprised by this, but I'm not exactly treated as an "outsider".
I'm hardly alone, either. I don't know the exact number of people on Facebook, but I highly doubt it's the entire world, like you claim.
And to be honest, unless you are going to start posting on your facebook "I'm going to blow up parliment", about the only thing the massive government conspiracy is going to find useful about your facebook account is your location. Which they already bloody know, on account of you being a citizen of the country.
So... where was the threat, again?

I don't have a facebook account... Am I going to have to fill out a separate form or something?
