    :D

    Personally it's more a loathing than hate for it - I quite liked the concept when I joined around 2007, before it and its user base turned into the abomination it is now.

    Am now abstinent for the last two weeks (which should in theory mean that my account is actually deleted now...) and don't miss it at all.

    So, I've just had a message from someone on Facebook telling me a bunch of private messages we'd exchanged have been posted to my wall from her for all to see. Well done Facebook!

    I don't really understand facebook, but does that mean she's just copied and pasted a load of stuff into a public area? Isn't that her fault?

    That would be her fault entirely, but it seems some old private messages have randomly been posted by the program to the public wall of some profiles, although Facebook are denying it-

    Having said that, their explanation does sound plausible. I didn't see the posts, so I can't offer an opinion.

    Oh I *see*. Well, yes that is a bit shit. That has the potential to be a bit...compromising. I guess they'd have to deny it, or they'd be sued silly.

    So, is this "bug" actually happening or not?

    I have some friends who are absolutely convinced it is (many of who I trust to know what they're on about), yet Facebook and not the press themselves are claiming it's user error.

    You sound worried, kalel.

    More interested in reading the PMs of my mates than concerned about mine being read ;-)

    I've an ongoing conversation via PMs on Facebook with a good friend spanning about 3 years, full of all kinds of wrongness. I dread to think what would happen if that ever went public :D

    I am fairly sure that I have some messages from 2008, that are now visible.

    I noticed this last night on my profile. Some private (but thankfully not scandalous) PMS from 2008 were showing up along with wall posts.

    Does that mean that after years of not checking facebook, I need to log back in to find out if any old PMs are showing?

    Actually, this could be a way for facebook to get back old users like me...

    They're worse than bankers they are! http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2012/oct/10/facebook-uk-taxes

    Actually thinking about it, I currently have a limited company which I contract through. I use a service based in Birmingham as my Company Secretary and registered office. If I changed that to be in Dublin, and say I'm contracted out to work in London, could I pay lower tax?.

    How does this work? Can anyone do it? So like, say I want to promote my naked picture of a gaping Diana Vickers, I just pay FB some monies and it gets promoted somehow?

    I have started to remove people who post crap like this:

    Like this post if you ate food in the 80s, wore clothes in the 90's, went to the post office in the 00's and watched something on tv in the 10's!!!!1!!!one


    Really starting to hate facebook.

    So I used to be able to click on the "photos" app and there would be a feed of all the latest photos posted by my friends, now when I click on photos it takes me to my own albums.

    Anyone else had a similair change implemented or am I simply missing a trick?

    Just reactivated mine.

    The same people (hundreds of them) talking about the same old nonsense. One always talks about bets on the football. One always talks about food. One always talks about her boyfriend. Etc etc. It's like nothing has changed in months.

    It's just so... pointless. Aside from the events, but I'm easily reachable by phone or Skype and people managed to organise events before we had electricity never mind social networking.

    @Syrette this is what I have found has become so dull. Logged in earlier this evening, 84 notifications of which 99% I would guess.

    Finding twitter a lot more enjoyable for the variety at the moment.

    I'm close to deactivating my account. Saturdays are the worst especially when shows like X Factor are on.

    Probably. My good friends I've had no trouble communicating with via the old cellular mobile telephone.

    I almost forgot, during my brief reunion with Facebook I found myself on an old best mate's profile and apparently they've gone a bit mental. Culminating after several weeks of messed up statuses with them declaring that they've taken themselves to a hospital. Guess Facebook does have its uses after all.

    It's good for some stuff.. my 82 year old grandad uses it to keep in touch with the world and chat to family all over the place. But yeah, I could lose about 80% of the folks on my 'friend' list and not even notice.

    Yeah the problem isn't facebook, the problem is you know a lot of idiots.

    At a push I might get one TV related post a fortnight popping up on my news feed. If there are repeat offenders who post shit simply hide their updates.

    Its more the predictability of people rather than them being idiots. I don't have problems with what people post just its the same thing ad nauseum.
