    While Facebook prides itself in being one of the few social networking sites to respect the privacy of all members, some staff members recently decided to abuse that trust. Said employees were caught analyzing profiles they had no right to look at, reading private messages, and otherwise spying on/invading the privacy of unsuspecting members. Facebook caught on to this violation of trust when members began writing in complaining about unknown people viewing their profiles. Facebook administrators are currently investigating the situation, and will fire those that consider spying on members to be "a perk".

    Oh noes! *runs to delete his phone number from facebook so that he doesnt get heavy breathing phone calls at midnight*

    At least it isn't full of pedos and axe murderers like Myspace is, yet.

    I don't know how it works on Facebook (maybe "XY has last viewed your profile"?) but if the staff can't hide their access :rolleyes:

    Yes indeed, Myspace.
    It's the reason why I never go there anymore and should remove my profile.
    Also get adds from profiles which disappear within a week of porn star looking birds who are friends with the ugliest men I've ever seen.

    I feel like I'm walking into a dark dingy alley full of wierdos when I go to that site.
    Chatting in there is like chatting to mental patients off thier meds.:wtf:
