Re: Facebook pushes security tips to all its users

said by Ian:

I think what the OP doesn't understand is that while security CAN be related to privacy, they aren't the same thing. So what is this advice being offered by Facebook?

1. Know how to spot a scam

Those bastards!

2. Choose a one-of-a-kind password

Make your Facebook password different than your e-mail. Not bad advice.

3. Confirm your mobile number

That this has privacy implications is obvious. But hey.... Nobody is twisting arms.

Not a Facebook fan either, but the best way to protect your privacy is to be un-noteworthy. Why is one member out of a billion so special to take note of?

Make that 2! I'm with ya dude! You know, if you sort of make a composite of the replies to the dude, it conjures up a scene of Nixon and his aides discussing some of their dirty tricks.
I love the "little people"!
