Internet & Networking I hate when I have to report on stuff I just don't care about. However, it's big news, because for some reason I'm not particularly privy to, this photosharing service is more popular than god. Yes, Facebook has acquired Instagram. Update: "At the end of the day, that's what Instagram filters are: a crutch, a misguided replacement for a properly composed shot and a decent sensor."

So no, they don't have everyone.


Well, if any of your friends:

1. Have your contact information in their phone
2. Use Facebook, and ...
3. Use the contact sync option on the Facebook app

Then Facebook has your real name, phone number, and possibly your address, whether you wanted them to or not.

That being said, Facebook does have its uses. I have a fake account set up so I can use their universal login to gain access to sites that accept Facebook logins. If the account ever gets hacked, I really don't care, since I don't have any personal info tied to that account.
