    For Those Still Using FaceBook

    A while back a thread was started about deleting your Facebook account. For those of you who have not deleted your account and are intent on keeping it:

    One nice person called David has created a bunch of alternative Facebook profile silhouettes - from Albert Einstein to Frankenstein, Batman to Darth Vader. These are free to use in your Facebook profile. Have fun!
    Examples of the alternate profile silhouettes:



    [Batman, Legolas and Pinhead in case you had not guessed]

    For fans of Johnny Depp here are some pictures of him as various characters which could be suitable for conversion to avatars?

    Not sure. Haven't signed up. Never will. Despite pressure to do so from friends. However I understand it is still used by some.

    had to laugh- we had a problem with our Smoothwall last week which resulted in staff allow list not working - facebook is on there , along with youtube , google images , webmail, online banking sites etc .
    From my regular glances at smoothwall filter logs , I would say that about 80-90% of our staff use FB .....EVERY DAY!!

    So I got plenty of moans about all the other sites last week....but not one staff member asked why FB not available ....

    I wonder why that would be?

    Julian Assange:
    Facebook is the most appalling spying machine that has ever been invented. The world's most comprehensive database about people -- their relationships, names, addresses, locations and communications with each other, all accessible to U.S. Intelligence...

    Worth a watch but perhaps not too much too worry about?
