I don't use FB either, but even if I did this forum is much more practical and functional.

Ok, I don´t like Fbook too, but I think it´s a huge place for make advertising of our games, and of course GLbasic..., the politicies of FBook I hate, but this it´s like Apple, if you don´t pass thru the Hole, you can make too much... I refer to pay 80$... absolutetly a steal in comparation whit another Mobile Markets...

I don't like FB, but I have an account, because I know that is a great tool for promote your games and your knowledge. It's a good idea put a FB/twitter option in the games/tools you create for mobile to let the users share the "experience".

I finally found the delete button for my Facebook account (found the link hidden away in a help file and not actually in my account options like you'd expect) -- I'm soooo happy!  I'm sick of the darn thing.  =D

Stealth approach for me as I have my account active but disabled when signing out and haven't used it lately.  :noggin:

None for me, not a great social networking fan.
Cheers,

No, I deleted it. It annoyed and horrified me at the same time. I'm not ready for facing this kind of transparency, yet. I hope I never will.

And now a days, with the "your life timeline" it gets more horrorizing.
I haven´t changed to that mode and I avoid using FB for anything then talking with a few chaps.

Since I work freelance, I can´t have clients managing my time by distance, time managing is my job.
Even my MSN is set to ALWAYS online for the very same reason.

I can see how people could use such to its own advantage, but it would mean more work for me and less free time, so currently it is a no.

I´m already pissed by google, like I browsed some shoes on net shoes to choose a couple to buy and now, every other page I visit google ads do me the favor to show an ad of netshoes showing the options I browsed, feels really intrusive.

The most horrifyng thing about facebook is automatic tagging.
Meaning, as soon as someone tags you in a picture anyhere, FB stores your facial characteristics data. Nice! Who needs fingerprints anyway.  :rtfm:
And I found about it AFTER I was tagged in a photo that I didn't take or put on FB.
