    Does anybody here have their fb account "associated" with tigerfan? If so, how is that working for you?

    Phuck no. I think anyone who has a FB account, AT ALL, should be banned from LSU forums.

    I want nothing I do online linked to anything else. It not only allow ad robots to track you from site to site, but it allows scammers and identity pirates to hack one account and follow it everywhere. Especially so when people use a single password for everything. Just a matter of time before they hack your credit cards, online banking, or your home computer.

    I recently bought a new phone. When they were transfering the contacts from my old phone I asked why it was taking so long. They said it was because I had over 2000 contacts. It seems like everybody who had ever emailed me to my gmail account had been added as a contact. I had to manually delete all the bogus contacts from my new phone

    Google is the worst offender at taking your personal information and marketing it to the world. Every email contact using Gmail, every Google search, every site you visit that has a google search or google ad, and every ad you click.

    Google knows who your friends are, what you do for a living, who you buy from, what your interests are, where you bank, where you shop, the music you like, the porn you prefer, your politics, how much money you have, you favorite foods, and lots more.

    Facebook lets you tell them even more personal facts that help identity thieves. Where you went to school, who your relatives are, where you have worked, all the photos you post, everything you "like" or "share", what you drive, your pets names, old girlfriends, lots more.

    Anything that you get free on the internet . . . expect that you are having all your information sold to marketers. It's all in that "terms of use" checkbox that nobody reads.

    I recently got a new phone too and also experienced some of the same. Even had some dang emails from way back and this was my first phone with net access. I'd never emailed via my pantech.
