I was wondering how Bodger had the time to duplicate posts here in FB, and now I know.

When you submit a new post there' a button to share it to FB.

That is me out of here now.  I do not "do" FB and I will not "do" FB and if what I write on here is copied on FB then sorry, BUT I AM OUTTA HERE.

Been nice knowing you but I never did belong here, did I, but I loved reading your stories.

Oh well, you will not miss me so I wish you all well.

NO NO!! DON'T GO That is just an option not done automaticly. The person has to want to put it on and I for one would never, if you read my post you will see I don't go thereeither.

I'm with Juli on this. I don't FB, and it's a deliberate choice.
I am relieved that it's not an automatic feature.

Don't go Juli.

It's an option and as far as I can see it's only an option for the person who initiates the post, to share that initial past on Facebook. I don't think any responses get shared. Perhaps Kaz could confirm this?

I doubt anyone here would use it anyway. Bodger duplicates many of his posts on FB but has confirmed that he uses cut & paste to do so.

I'd miss you x

It's a only share button.


If you press it then that post and only that post is shared to your Facebook timeline.

Oh sure.  Are you that dumb?  If anyone clicks on that FB button whatever they had wriitten on can be read by everyone on FB.

Someone wanted to trace me and guess what, they found me on a site I had not used since 2011 - different name - a university site - but they found me.  

This site is the ONLY  one I use my name - Juli.   I have never used it anywhere else.

But I did not know then what I now now.  EVERYTHING posted anywhere can be found on Google.  All that is needed are three things and in my case it was the name Pereg.  Epileptic.  And Israel.

And Bingo - somewhere I had not posted on, UNDER A DIFFERENT NAME and had not posted on since 2011 - found me.  And blackmailed me.

Wanna try it Gareth?

It cost me thousands.  You got that?  Well no I did not either but I had to pay all the same/

I am out of this Forum now before someone else blackmails me.

I use share buttons like this several times every.

You have to set your privacy setting to the level you personally require.

I have an open to the public Facebook page......... everyone can see it and I never have problems. Gareth's Facebook Page although before to visit it, you must be aware that most days I get a bit sweary!

But I do not DO FB so do not need to set any privacy settings.   But just posting on here anyone can trace me.

Which is why I will never post here again.  It cost me thousands to stop the person who had tracked me down to publish my full name and address alll over the internet,

Hey, her name is ...  she lives in Israel...  her address is...  wanna go send a rocket there?

I see that the FB button seems to have disappeared.  Why?

Forums that don't embrace the way that most people communicate are disappearing at a great rate of knots.

Mods/admin, please embrace what social media offers. Use it, develop an online presence on those sites, and that way this great forum stands a chance of being here in a couple of years time.

MM
