Online Assignment #4

Seeing all the information that Facebook keeps stored about me surprised me. I originally thought all the information that Facebook kept was semi if not completely useless but upon looking at it from an advertisers perspective and seeing all the things I liked and talked about about that i would naturally be drawn to if it were in an ad was astounding. Facebook knew that I was a student in Madsion, Wisconsin, who spent most of his free time outdoors and has a large extended family. Facebook knew who i stayed friends with over the years and who i blocked/de-friended. Facebook knew my daily habits of when i woke up when a slept when i was bust and when i was bored and how much i procrastinated before a would start my home work for the day. It knew most if not all of my medical history too.
My thoughts on Facebook keeping and storing this information? Honestly I could care less, I willingly chose to put it on a public website, knowing full well that it will be spread around in some way, shape, or form. I am not the type of person that needs to have my information kept private, if i liked a page about midget porn I already know that my future employers and family members will see it. MWhat I'm trying to get at is that since I choose what I put on the site it becomes my responsibility to share it or not share it not Facebook's. Facebook is merely providing an opportunity.
