Right, I'm back on Facebook for the time being. I finally figured out all the new privacy settings. Wow, it's so complicated now. Don't really want to spend so much time keeping up with it all so I will be spending a lot less time on Facebook from now on. I really can't be bothered with all the unnecessary new privacy complications, plus the new friend groups I am forced to have added to my perfectly fine groups list. As for the timeline, I don't like all that history showing on my profile page like that, it's awful. History should be automatically deleted after a few months. Facebook appear to be making a tonne of money from my discomfort. I have found a way to disable all Facebook adverts so they shan't be making money from me that way. As for selling on my data, are they doing that? All I can do about that is to make sure I delete old stuff. Need to find out how to go about that. Maybe create a new account every year and delete the old one? We'll see.

Due to privacy issues, and after having spent time trying to sort out other issues that prevented me using my Facebook account recently, I have decided to temporarily close my account until I get the time to sort it out. I am on Google+, so see you there if you have a Google account. What has changed on Facebook? Well, I had settings set so that only friends could view my list of friends, and only certain people could access my wall. Since the change over to the dreaded Timeline I just discovered that anybody can see anything, so I've closed my account to prevent any privacy issues. I have no idea when I will be back on Facebook, it could be a couple of days or a lot longer. To be honest I have had enough of Facebook and am only there for certain friends who don't want to move elsewhere.
