Facebook once was a good site. In the past 18 months they have joined the ranks of trustworthy govn't officials. I am happy to see the govn't address there issues but will it change anything? Doubt it. FB won't listen to its users so why would they list to the govn't?

I'd trust anyone before these washington clowns.

Won't be long till we have a gov inspector in our bedroom saying "do this, NO you can't do that".

Frig the gov

Facebook is as trustworthy as Google, Microsoft, Apple, and any other large succesful business.  Our well being is not their primary concern; suck us dry and spit us out.  Oh, did I mention the federal government?

 Defeat the spam filter.  Use Lazarus: Form Recovery firefox addon.

I trust facebook more than I trust the government.

I see so you trust a for profit company more than the government, whose purpose is to look out for its citizens.... I understand there is corruption in the government, but all of it is caused by for profit companies paying for it...

Businesses are more concerned about bad PR. Politicians only need make 1 competitor look bad, then you buy ALL of their "products".

Facebook does have some pretty good privacy features, the problem is that they are mostly opt-in, so the 99.9% of users who never look at them are unknowingly sharing all kinds of private information.  Facebook should realize that you can't depend on users to look out for their own safety.  Corporations need to take some responsibility before the government comes knocking.

Facebook does know it, and they use that knowledge to their benefit.  They are evil.

I just never put anything on there in the first place that I wouldn't mind the world seeing.

 My thoughts exactly. If you don't want people seeing something, why are you posting it on the internet?

I deleted (not deactivate, delete) my facebook last week that site is bullshit; much like the spam filter on this website.

I'm glad someone is taking to task with facebook. As far as trust, I don't, never have, never will.
