News: "We ride because we see long lines of cars and trucks, creeping along toward another day, a crummy one just like yesterday. We ride by, glance into those cars and trucks and can't imagine being one of THEM, when we could be, we ARE, one of us." - Maynard Hershon, Citybike, 9/05

•   Facebook announced a data breach on Friday, Sept. 28, in which the personal information of 50 million user accounts was put at risk due to a vulnerability in the social network’s code.
•   Hackers gained the ability to steal “access tokens” that allow users to stay logged into their accounts. Fraudsters could use these to not only take over users’ Facebook profiles, but also to access third-party accounts like Airbnb, Spotify or Uber that use Facebook credentials to log in.
•   Though the access tokens targeted in the attack could potentially be used to log into third-party sites, Facebook announced on Oct. 2 that its investigators don’t believe such third-party sites were affected.
•   Since discovering the breach, Facebook has fixed the vulnerability, informed law enforcement to investigate and reset the access tokens on 90 million accounts as a precautionary measure.

Never got into it, have no desire to get into it, and don't think I've missed anything.    What I have missed is unimportant any way.

Fred to point yes but it is handy for some things, I look at it that way, others look at it as a data harvesting center. Overall what hasn't been hacked and a far as data ANYTHING entered in the search area say on google will get you pop up adds on other sites.

I’ve enjoyed FB, reconnected with some old friends, but don’t get in to politics on it. If I did I’d have to disown my kids.  rotflmao

@Greg:

I'm with you. Have some really great friends and family that are into sharing their political views on FB.

People! I just want to see you, your family, your pets, and your pictures! Well, and an amusing anecdote or two. Smiley

@Al:


 "They" know more about me than I do. I don't really give much of a hoot if they want to look at my garden and cat pictures. :p
