Leave Facebook if you don't want to be spied on, warns EU

The European Commission has warned EU citizens that they should close their Facebook accounts if they want to keep information private from US security services, finding that current Safe Harbour legislation does not protect citizen’s data.

Many people use Facebook. Do you? How do you use it? Do you use it to chat with your friends, to share personal thoughts and events or just to read the news? Whichever way you use it, you leave a trail about yourself. What are your thoughts about Facebook?

    I very rarely share personal information on social media. Even if I did, I doubt the security services would find it interesting. As anyone who follows me knows, I use it on the LEN page for cartoons and posts about the English language, and on my personal page, I just like to keep an eye on what my nieces and nephews are up to (they aren't great at keeping in touch).
