    I am at a loss.
    Id say something like "Great news that it's all finalised, I guess now it's all sorted you wont mind if I pursue your ex, I always felt like there was a great connection between the two of us" to be used regardless of the gender

    Even better if their ex will let you facebook marry them

    I have a Facebook account but I'm seriously considering leaving Facebook for good. I don't like Facebook's poor privacy policies and the way they want to OWN their users' content, I think it's disrespectful. I also don't really want to be part of making it a "must" for everyone to partake in social media. People's social lives have become far too virtualised... I want to start fighting that trend.

    Also, Facebook has not made my life any better. Most status updates are a waste of time and space, really. I have "reconnected" with some of my old friends-- only to say "hi" and then ignore their Facebook for the next six months or so... that's not really reconnecting.

    Also, it feels bad to make updates about the nice things in my life and then not be able to update about the bad things, like feeling crappy. It feels like lying and makes me feel bad. Don't want to do it any more.

    Sometimes I've had interesting private discussions via Facebook's private messages but I can have those discussions without Facebook, too-- only feeling more secure about the discussions' privacy.

    And the fun won't stop . . .

    Report: Facebook caught sharing secret data with advertisers

    The privacy issues that have been hounding Facebook may be coming to a head. A report in the Wall Street Journal indicates that the Facebook, along with MySpace, Digg, and a handful of other social-networking sites, have been sharing users' personal data with advertisers without users' knowledge or consent.

    The data shared includes names, user IDs, and other information sufficient to enable ad companies such as the Google-owned DoubleClick to identify distinct user profiles. Some of the sites in question, including MySpace and Facebook, stopped sharing the data after the Journal asked them about it. The surreptitious data sharing was first noticed (PDF) by researchers from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and AT&T Labs in August 2009, who brought it up with the sites in question. It wasn't until WSJ contacted them that changes were made.

    Not surprisingly, Facebook appears to have gone farther than the other sites when it comes to sharing data. When Facebook's users clicked on ads appearing on a profile page, the site would at times provide data such as the username behind the click, as well as the user whose profile page from which the click came. "If you are looking at your profile page and you click on an ad, you are telling that advertiser who you are," Harvard Business School professor Ben Edelman told the Journal. Advertisers contacted by the paper said that they were unaware of the additional data and did not make use of it.

    Facebook has tweaked its privacy policy throughout its history, with the most recent moves to open up more user information to the public drawing heavy criticism and FTC complaints. Users have also had a tough time navigating the site's often-Byzantine privacy controls, which has led to a trickle of user defections. With these latest revelations about Facebook ignoring industry standards, not to mention its own privacy policies, that trickle may turn into a torrent.
