Quote# 88109 They are making book on you!!!
I have been around computers even before Bill Gates or Al Gore, and I've been a Christian for many years now. Someone at our church opened a facebook account for the church and wanted me to "contribute" to it. In order to do that, I needed a "facebook account". I also had it in my mind that I could use it as sort of a "ministry".
I was wary of google prior to this, and would not use their "search engine" or software in any way. I knew they were recording your keystrokes / internet selections, etc. and soon had a book on your location and primary interests (which they could market to advertixing agencies). Every computer has its own unique "address" and once they have your address they have your information. While I was on facebook, I was appalled at the things people would reveal about themselves and their families. After a while, really, nothing is hidden (and believe me it's being recorded. Just within the last couple weeks, facebook obtained "face recognition" technology. (supposedly this is to automate the "tagging" of photos on facebook, but it could be used in many other ways.) If they have you "tagged" on facebook and it goes into the "collective database", believe me, they really do have you "tagged"!!!
I'm not a "conspiracy theorist" but I am a realist. I believe there is "collaboration" between all the "social networks" and the government. There is a new NSA (national security agency) compound in Neb., or Nev. that has just recently been set up. Their "mission" is not really known.
This may come as a shock, but I also have strong "political opinions" and let them be known on various "news websites". All of a sudden, I was no longer able to post or have an account.
I'm not concerned about myself, they should know by now that I'm a "Fanatic Christian", and where I live. It's very possible that one day they might come after me. I am concerned for members of my family. I take exception to anyone "making book" or "stalking" my grandchildren.
I cancelled my facebook account earlier this year. It wasn't a "spiritual conviction" but a practical one.
All I'm suggesting is that you be very cautious what you enter on the internet. If it's something you wouldn't want everyone to know, you probably shouldn't enter it. Just Sayin ~~~
God Bless, Dan
