Remembering the great Maurizio Pollini
Legendary pianist Maurizio Pollini defined modern piano playing through a combination of virtuosity of the highest degree, a complete sense of musical purpose and commitment that works in complete control of the virtuosity. His passing was announced by Milanís La Scala opera house on March 23. Read more >>

So about this Facebook thing....
on: October 05, 2015, 05:43:39 PM
So I'm actually creating a Facebook account, just curious:

If someone asks you how your cat is and and your dog logs in and discovers that you have kept a cat secretly for years.

Is that scenario possible, or how private is Facebook, can people see your conversation etc.

Obviously I have a collection of wives and need to keep each oblivious from the existence of the others.

From what I've heard about Facebook....
They're selling your information.  All of it, private or not.  That's how they make money.

And occasionally they release too much info.  Then they apologize and backtrack, but they don't go all the way to where they started.  So they take two steps forward and overstep privacy and then take one step back to correct things.

Bob, you've been reading too much conspiracy theory crap, methinks.
FB makes their money through clever advertisement.
@Diomedes Facebook is fairly private; just keep your passwords better hidden than your wives' existences.

Facebook wants my birthdate to publicize before they show me anything.  They are not getting it; they will have to pay the Bureau of Motor Vehicles for it if they expect to get it. That is one of the security questions of my (and your) retirement accounts and health insurance.   
I'm on tumblr.com which only wants my birth year to participate.  My first recording is on inbojat.tumblr.com :  a pop tune on organ.

I'm on facebook to stay connected to some friends and family, but I share almost nothing and recently took down all the information I had put up there about my personal history etc. I really don't like it. The likes of facebook and others have made the world a much louder place than it used to be, almost like you can "hear" the entire human race in a crowded hall, talking, endlessly. I long for a world that is dramatically quieter than this. Thankfully, there are some nooks and crannies you can ensconce yourself in to hide from it all. (like piano playing :)

So far none of them suspect a thing and my collection of wives is increasing. Rather nicely, I must say. Need to find a new storage solution.

There are numerous online guides to Facebook privacy settings.  Have a look and try them out. 

If you really want something private just don't put it up.  If it is some piece of mandatory info you don't want to share, like a birth date, make yourself an online persona.  Just don't forget it, as some of this info is used for account recovery: like when you can't remember your login password.

So far I had no issues, it's all fine. People can determine my age, which from what I can tell cannot be kept private. Irrelevant, really.

I use it primarily as public relations. I've decided to begin doing recitals at often as possible, I've given 3 with no effort in inviting people, and very obviously there was room for improvement in that regard. Its also interesting, I'm very private and keep to myself but despite that it's helped me keep in touch with people that I normally wouldn't, which also happens with recitals. Some interesting people often show up.
