    1983 (when I left school) seems like a few days ago to me.

    Time is weird. When I was at High School (1978 to 1983) if anyone mentioned the 1960s, it seemed like ages ago, e.g. a song from 1969 mentioned in 1979 was only ten years old but seemed almost as distant as WWII. Now the 1980s and 1990s seem so recent despite being 30-40 years ago.

    Or perhaps I'm just old!

    The misconception is everything on Facebook is completely accessible to strangers. Only if you leave the windows and doors open, so to speak.

    Yes, but most folks do leave them open...... and with Facepoop changing their Privacy settings every two weeks (not really though) it might slip by some. They like changing it to default "share with the whole world".

    general rule of thumb, if you don't want anybody/everybody to know, don't post it on Fakebook/Internet

    I agree that people generally LOVE to make an exhibition of themselves and probably subconsciously leave things open. But honestly, when it comes to intellectual property, which is besides the point of this discussion really, my own photos (only upload iPhone pix myself) are generally too abstract in nature - certainly not stock photography material. People who make contrived decorative pictures are generally setting themselves up for it and they deserve everything they get for their lack of aesthetic judgment in the first place. Here's a bit of twisted logic - if you don't want your pictures stolen, make better pictures.

    No you are not old. Actually I told a little untruth I brought my first camera in 1997. That was long ago for me because that was when I took my first photos and started photographing.
    I was a late starter, I was 26 years old.
    So relatively speaking it was long ago in terms of my photographic career.
    My brain and my way of thoughts are still in the 1980's.

    Speaking of privacy issues, I'm always amazed at the number of seemingly paranoid members of the Forum that won't even put the State (or even country) they live in in their profile.

    I think /assume that most people who fail to fill this vital profile information do so not out of concern for privacy but out of laziness or ignorance.

    I think some people worry about privacy.

    Did you know that if you know what someone is called and where they live, you can work out their name and address?!!

    Why would anyone care to look up any of the people here?

    They want to get us all sooner or later http://www.apug.org/forums/forum45/9...en-better.html
    This makes me thing of a disco in Brasil I think it was where it is chick to get a chip inplant where your drinks and visits are registered. I am afraid this is all just the beginning. How this all can be used even better and exploited is still coming. Maybe I am a dinosaur or out of touch but I thing we are going to start to lose our human side, or maybe this is showing how we really are.
    1984 was supposed to be warning not an instruction book.
