COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY DARIEN GRAHAM-SMITH IN THE GUARDIAN

Twelve Facebook tips that everyone should know
Sync your calendars, censor your history and save great posts: top ways to streamline your social experience

Better advice: steer clear of this manipulative, dishonest, nasty site.

It has been caught in dishonest practices many times, and it has never made clear to its users just how their information is used.

Nor does it make clear to users the constant snares that are set to collect still more information.

Every time a question of any kind appears, it is rigged to get the information Facebook wants, not the information users would want to give.

Facebook is essentially a gigantic electronic Hoover, sucking up all kinds of information to sell for every imaginable purpose and to supply to American security services.

It’s not even aesthetically pleasing, and it offers little (other than meaningless stuff such as “likes”) that cannot be had in other ways of using the Internet.

The Guardian is a Facebook/Zuckerberg cheering section, popping up regularly with arms waving and shouts for the wonderful team.
