I have a Facebook account, but I’m determined to limit my “friends” to people who really are (i.e., nobody from my professional life) and to stay away from quizzes and other applications that can invade my privacy without my realizing it.  I’m not an extremely private person, but Facebook’s record makes me legitimately paranoid.
