    Read this article... http://finance.yahoo.com/news/whos-w...213557740.html

    I think Facebook has become a great tool to promote your business while at the same time it has become a great way for people to help ruin your business, use as a tool to sue you, or hold you to your comments. Whatever you say on Facebook is being followed by someone who wants to file a lawsuit against your company, or to spy on what you say or do. This article up above is 110% accurate. I know so whatever you do remember facebook can help you and it can hurt you at the same time.

    At some point I see facebook losing steam and falling off as people bore of following everyons daily lives, but until that time just be carefull.

    This is true! Facebook has cost many people their jobs and have ruined so many marriages and relationships. All the alcoholics posting pics of them partying to the provocative photos to the crude comedy and rhetoric will come back to hurt you.

    Wishful thinking Larry, unfortunately, I dont see many getting bored of following others daily lives, however, I agree, in that regard, FB is ridiculous.

    My favorite is the guys who wrote a script as proof of concept to show you how easily you could grab all the people on FB who posted they essentially they wouldn't be home for a week while on vacation. FB makes people narcissistic especially when you have over 400 friends and you don't know who half of them are. Unfortunately there's people who can also grab your FB and twitter login outta the air if you use the Wifi at a bookstore, coffee shop etc and think it's safe. Secure Wifi is a little better only taking 5mins to get on.

    Forums like these are a lot safer because someone has to know you post on them first, but facebook is just something that attorneys now use as a tool to use things against you. Be really careful with facebook... I think people should stick to talking about the industry on private forums or just simply over the phone. They are saying that people are using facebook just to learn about who has money and who doesn't so they can try and get bit by your dog, or whatever. I'm starting to think facebook overall is not great... I'm going to stick to the basics on facebook promoting what your business is doing but not discussing things of sensitive nature.

    Now that they have this timeline they are trying to lock in everything you say ... so be careful.

    It looks like more and more that forums like these are dying out and Facebook groups are the in thing. I think forums may become obsolete soon and people will continue to group up on FB or whatever comes next as social media isn't going anywhere the youth have grown up with it as a big part of their lives. I've seen a couple car forums die out in the past 2 years and replaced with Facebook groups. Hunting ones too.

    Seems almost all kids nowadays have ADD because they hardly have any attention now. I think FB will go the way of the dodo is a couple years. There's only so much that can be done with it and his attempt to allow children under the current limitation didn't go in his favor. Like your 6yr old needs to be bullied too.

    Bully? I don't think Facebook is a tool for bullying anymore than anything else.
