Facebook Friday

I've been on Facebook for a little over a week and half and I'm still unsure about it. I did manage to reconnect with old friends and current ones, too, but I feel like I'm "keeping tabs" on them instead. I realize that people are willingly giving this information up to their friends list, but it still seems a bit odd to me. Of course, this means people can also see what I have to say and what I am doing. Don't the people regularly complain about anything that could compromise their privacy, yet they are willing to give it up for the sake of being social? One of the things I'm looking at is privacy settings and how to manipulate them in such a way that we can be as open as we want to be, but still maintain some level of privacy. I will post these settings when I finally figure them out. Hey, you have that to look forward to, isn't it cool?
