All your facebook are belong to us! .
No actually all your posts on this forum belong to me, however I'm not unreasonable, it'll only cost you a thousand pounds per post to buy them back off me, and I won't use them for anything bad at all (pastes picture of nocturnus onto wanted poster), ---- no not at all! .
To be honest the hole privacy vs copywrite thing has got to be something of a modern obsession, mostly because huge coorporations want to justify themselves in being able to send you lots of advertising crap and use anonymous usage statistics in corporate research, and then claim that if you listen to or watch anything at all ever at all ever they should make money off it because of a huge long train of legal contracts which have long sin ce buried the creator of anything and now just serve to increase the prophets of the bshare holders and publishers by a few more points.
Personally my take on this is simply to keep my bank info off the internet, try to be fare to the creators of the books and music and games I like while sticking two fingers up at all the publishers and middle men and share holders, and keep my bank details off the internet as much as possible :d.
I confess I don't use facebook for rather another reason, simply that when I last checked the interface was so bloody cluttered it took waaaaay too long to find anything useful to read under all the "Bob has had his breakfast" or Jone has brushed her teeth", or "Do you know tom, dick and harry" sort of messages that I just got frustrated with the damnable thing.
I do know people who use facebook as an over extended chat system, plus there are I think a couple of mmorpgs that run through it , but even finding the chat seemed to be difficult. I've considered trying it on Ios, but again it just doesn't feel like a priority when I hear all about the self agrandisement and public posturing.
I have! actually considered twitter rather seriously. Both for myself in terms of getting news and information, and with respect to audiogames.net, since it'd be really nice to be able to let people know when somethig had been done on the site, eg, a new game release posted in new releases, a miner update to the db etc. Something a little less time consuming to write than the news posts. However, I've not quite gotten around to actually researching and sorting this out as yet, mostly because of the hole getting married thing and because the quitter client I was looking at which had very good compatibility with supernova went bye bye.
In december when my doctoral thesis is finished and I get a new windows 10 machine i'll probably look into twitter, and maybe e ven facebook as well, though that is possibly less likely.
I suppose in general the problem is that social media is meant to appeal to extraverts and to encourage people to share pretty much all the details of their lives, ---- and frankly when I'm not on stage performing I'm an intravert who likes his own space and would rather settle in with a good book or a good game than care about what other people are doing or whether other people care about what I'm! doing.
And even when I'm on stage performing, ---- well it's called acting daaaarling .
