Today someone sent me an email saying HAPPY THANKSGIVING and some of the email addresses they had CCed in were on FACEBOOK!! (sheeple@facebook.com for example) and someone replied to HIS EMAIL resulting in everyone in that CCed list getting an email!!!!

The problem is not with Facebook, but that you have friends who don't know how to use email.

But that is 98% of all users since most are sheeple and refuse to learn anything...even how to properly protect others privacy when sending email. I had to stop communicating by email with most friends/family because they refuse to learn how to use blind CC. Surely you recall jaykaykay See Profile eloquent posts on this issue in past years as jaykaykay struggled to get friends to use blind CC).

Yep. The problem above is that the Dude has mischaracterized the threat (claiming it's a Facebook issue), which makes him less safe because he's not addressing the real issue.

Sometimes I think a more appropriate name for this particular forum is "Security Misinformation". Between the paranoids and the ax grinders there is a lot of crap on here.

And yet if I'm a betting person, those people who don't know how to use email definitely use Facebook. That's exactly who it's designed for, after all. Heh.

I to have just given up on various friends regarding the use of the BCC instead of the CC or forwarding a CC email they got. The strange thing over time I see no correlation between the person's intelligence and responsibility level with regards to whether or not they master the use of or ever understand BCC. Weird.

"mischaracterized" and "sometimes".....perhaps you want to post exactly what you perceive.

"Paranoids and axe grinders". I find when people boil what occurs here down to such statements the false perceptions tend to override any real purpose of debate for some.
