This Post is being written because I have gotten to the point of feeling my friends think I am ungrateful, the ones that have tried to engage me on Facebook. I may not be the smartest person when it comes to all the tons of tech sites, but security is an issue I take seriously. I am talking about some of the fun things on Facebook, the Gifts, Plants, Drinks, Photo's, Christmas stuff, etc. What are we giving up to enjoy these "fun" things. Did you just give someone all your information without even realizing it, and mine too?
Think about all your sites, your blogs. How many times have you told people that you wouldn't sell their information to a 3rd party?How many times were you concerned someone else didn't sell, or give away your information yet we are doing it all day long on Facebook.
Look at the list to the left. We'll take the buy your friends (bottom of 1st column)
After clicking the link you get this:
Hey Kathy, I just bought you. Find out how much I think you're worth! Tom Braatz, Tom Plant, Marti Garaughty and 12 other friends are playing too!
Once you click the What's My Price you are now on a 3rd Party Site, not on Facebook.

These 3rd Party sites are all the fun things that you see on my list here. Marketers have figured out how to engage us by using our social media friends. I actually clicked the first couple I received, but after reading the terms I decided not to do it because the few that I had clicked wanted me to agree to them having access to my list of friends.
Think about that! We put our Birthdays, Phone Numbers, websites, email, and a ton of other personal and business information on these sites. When we did we didn't think of other Marketing Sites would have access to all our info, and that other people could give it to these 3rd Party Sites.
So, I have over 50 something fun things that were sent to me by people I genuinely like. I feel like I'm not being a good "neighbor" friend or whatever. I want to plant flowers, have a coffee, and who wouldn't want to have a Nicest Person Award :) But at what cost.....
I don't give away information on my own sites, so I'm not going to give yours away on my Social Media Sites either.
I'm very curious on how you interpret this......
