96. People I knew were concerned about privacy; others weren't. One by one they peeled off and then...

And it has to do with being willing to be signed in at multiple places at once and being tracked through the Facebook network.

I have a FB account that I have not visited in years, and then my email, cell phone, etc were being spread, when I'd set everything to private, etc. I set my FB for family and close RL contact, but FB had my email and flooded my inbox.

I kept my real life Democratic Party contacts separate from my real name accounts, and they had too. Then FB started sending us invites to be 'friends,' and the paranoia started up. I'd 'friend' someone and get an angry email as to who I was and what did I want?

They thought they were being spammed, and I got a lot of spam and weird people sending invites I never heard of, now coming to my email address. I never mix these things up.

The FB system sent me the email asking me to be 'friends', not them. I had to block FB from my email account to stop the messages as none of the people I was getting email were people I knew or wanted to know.

Anyway, as you say, there are only so many hours in the day with this. I don't text, FB, Twitter or do other websites any longer, just DU. So my post count is higher than those who split their online time in several places, I post on several things and just have fun at times.

I'm sure this was inevitable and a lot of people were asking for it. The DU Admins have done a great job of accomodating many apps that other sites didn't, so that's been a help to keep people signed in.

Thanks for your response.
