Social networking sites attract most people who use the Internet, and in fact are the only reason many of us use the Internet at all, that and doing Google searches. We post all sorts of details about ourselves and our lives on Facebook, we tell where we work and live, post pictures of ourselves, our friends and our relatives, discuss our likes and dislikes. We reveal everything about ourselves that a person looking to steal identities for profit or invade and rob a home would want to know.
Pedophiles use Facebook and other social sites to find pubescent youngsters to engage in sex with, pimps use them to find lonely women they can turn into prostitutes, Muslims look for young women they can either groom for sex or abduct and sell as sex slaves. Right now, Israel is having to draft laws allowing them to force Facebook to delete messages inciting terrorism against Israel, since Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg refuses to set Facebook screening policy to do so. He has no problem screening out anything political he dislikes, particularly if it benefits Republicans, though. Zuckerberg has thoroughly established himself as a Liberal, and very likely a Socialist and anti-Semite, since those seem to be part of the Liberal mold.
Personally, I’m against all social media. I did join Facebook for a short while as I was advised that it’s a good Internet marketplace, and quickly learned that it’s a good place to get ripped off, instead, and did all that I could to remove my information from them. But Facebook makes that impossible in spite of Zuckerberg’s claim. He keeps all your data no matter how hard you try to quit being a Facebook member. Zuckerberg is evil, his level of greed is literally insane, and I’ve no doubt it will end up being his downfall.
Social networking sites may be attractive to people who either want to stay in contact with friends, find new friends or both, but we can do that at the corner bar, through email and at other actual, physical meeting places like social clubs, a gym, school PTA meetings, a church, community centers, there’s all sorts of ways to make real friends that you can shake hands with instead of virtual friends who may be out to rape, rob and/or kill you.
This should be fair warning to anyone who reads this that social networking sites are there to profit from your presence and give you back nothing. They don’t care about your personal safety and in fact place you in great danger. Continue to use them at your peril.
