WTF is Lulu and how the hell do I get away from this ****?

My uncle has been bugging me to create an FB account. Everyone in my family - except grandparents, have FB. Lot's of older people I know have a FB account.

I also don't know what made FB grow. There have been many social networks before: myspace, hi5, msn messenger, etc. They all died down, but FB took off, being the same thing.

I should probably make one acct one day for social/job purposes, but really? I have seen news of people getting hired/fired based on their FB profiles. Mixing privacy, family, friend, second life and the rest of the internet always sounded like a godawful idea. I agree with everything what Pauken said.

Upon seeing this thread, I decided to infiltrate the harpy's den and search for myself. I went in expecting the worst and came out pleasantly surprised.

This sounds like an app that is a great help to show you which girls you should remove from your friends list.

Isn't this a huge privacy concern? Don't they need to get your permission to be on their site?
Can't someone sue them?

All they're doing is pulling public data of you.

Linkedin is for professional use. If you want a job profile, use that instead. I have a FB acct, but only for my family and a few RL friends.

How can I see my "reviews"? If I'm not allowed to see my own "reviews," then this is complete bull****.

Create a second profile that is female and interested in Men. I'm not too sure about any number of friend requirements. I had an old throwaway account from way back when that I used to find mine.

No it uses data your "friend" can see since your friend gave the app permission to access friends data.
