I can't stand being the "commodity" in any transaction. A lot of people don't understand this. They say but FB is free! Yes it's free because you are the commodity. When there's a sale at the butcher it's not the sausages getting the wallet out and we are the sausages. If you're comfortable with that that's fine but I'm not. No company has a right to my private information.
I do have a FB and twitter account but I use them as little as possible. Both are fake created using fake email and information and both are always logged out unless I want to post.
