Facebook Privacy Sucks

I deleted my Facebook account yesterday.

I have a wife of almost twenty years and three wonderful kids. We have family all over North America and friends all over the world. Facebook was a great way to keep in touch.

Now I've accepted the fact that Facebook is the villain and can't be trusted with any personal info of mine.

Bye bye.
I was browsing the internet yesterday and was at a site that I hadn't logged into and wouldn't due to its sketchy nature - the kind that is happy to sell your contact info to advertisers, scammers and spammers. After scrolling down I saw a picture of my kids (my Facebook profile pic) with the message [*****] has logged into this site using his Facebook account.

That was enough for me.
