Weddings, kids, trips, holidays... Why do people feel like showing how they live? People have like 50, 100 or 200 friends on FB and I bet very few of them are close ones.

I used to hide my face and flash pics of my tits on sites... like self shots cos I thought it was kind of funny. It's just a phase people go thru.

Is 'vanity' a bad thing?

I personally do not post identifiable photos of myself or have an active FaceBook account for personal security reasons, but if I had, I certainly would not be posting my movements or photos for all & sundry to see!

Are u joking? It's very serious. Facebook security is a joke!! People at work or anything can use something even to blackmail u.
Like me, do u know what happened? A guy tracked me down, called me up from info I given, and told like this, "If u don't do what I ask, then I will tell ure dad what ure really like."
I told, "What do u want?"
He said, "Send me pics of u like this, doing this, x, y, and z, or ure whole life will be out in the open and don't think to tell anyone cos I am with ISI and can fck all ure parents also."
So I was just freaking out. Really I was, vomiting, shaking, cudn't sleep, like I was cracking up totally cos I was trapped- do it and this guy's got me doing all sorts- don't do it and he can send to me dad stuff and I wud get beaten or worse even.
So?
I told me psycholojical health counsellor and she told me like this, "Disconnect from phones, internet, everything- stay off it and it will go away. This is the UK and u got no need to be scared of this stuff."
I didn't believe her and the phone was ringing at certain hours and I was just staring at it - sure it was him. Anyow, yes, after a week it did stop- but I learned me lesson.

That's terrible...But I would tell him "Do what you want, I don't care". I think if people want to harm you they will do it with or without FB.

That's true, no facebook or vkontakte will be needed. Your home address will be enough, and if it is not known, it can be easily traced from the place where you work, for example. It is enough, in fact, to know the metro station a person lives close to to find him within 2-3 days.

I think it's largely vanity - people like the "Likes". And it is quite easy to share some holiday pics.

By default, Facebook security is set to let you share as much as possible to an audience as big as possible. That's logical, because the business model of Facebook is based on the "clicks". More sharing, more traffic. More traffic, more revenue.

As a result, I guess lots of people have no idea about how they publicly display all sorts of private information. At least, not in the beginning. And although it is quite simple to adapt privacy settings (https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=privacy), this option is not exactly "in your face" on Facebook. And neither is it on many other social networking sites.

One very good reason for the normal user:

Facebook's software has proven vulnerable to likejacking. On July 28, 2010 the BBC reported that security consultant Ron Bowes used a piece of code to scan Facebook profiles to collect data of 100 million profiles. The data collected was not hidden by the user's privacy settings. Bowes then published the list online. This list, which has been shared as a downloadable file, contains the URL of every searchable Facebook user's profile, their name and unique ID. Bowes said he published the data to highlight privacy issues, but Facebook claimed it was already public information.

In me community.. that's not really a option. I really got to watch it when I was living at home.
If u ask me, we're better off here doing all our stuff. FB is too open and it's not really possible to be using it except to post pics of cats, or just harmless stuff. But I mean, how cud I say the stuff I been saying on FB? No way! U dunno, I got tons of freedom on this site compared to what I am used to.

Linkedin etc allow others to collate information on users for a variety of reasons, some good and some bad!

Given that the majority of users cannot control or do not know how to control who is researching you and for what purpose, its often better to be safe than sorry - that is one of the key reasons why I do not share personal and easily identifiable information on-line; this includes all e-mail & Skype addresses which also do not identify me.

Im not one of them so I can only speculate that it is to show off

Why not? It's a good way to earn money with minimal work, it's just what you wanted! Easy money!

Mrzuzzo is right on this one.:) If you have the qualifications and meet the right people, i.e. if you become a porn star, you will be working like 8 hours per month max, earning millions. That's how this industry works. But a lot depends on meeting the right people. Well, even a regular cute hooker should not complain - they make at least 5K dollars per month in Saint Pete - minimum 50 bucks from a client - 3-5 hours of sex per day excluding the weekends. Piece of cake, if one doesn't regard the moral part of the job. Well, I would say many wives perform even worse than hookers and cost much more. There is a down side to everything.

If you can stay the pace, the director will ask you to come again. And it needs self discipline - you can't just shoot off in any direction, you have to keep a grip of yourself.

I would exercise caution if contemplating getting into this.

There can be many ups and downs in this business that some cannot sustain for too long and may feel the need to withdraw completely.
