Being talked about is fine but it would be nice to know the source of the information before opening a "Dendy Leaving?" thread. Granted, it only takeas a few seconds to open the thread to learn the source but the title can be scary.
So you are fine with people posting facebook stuff, but now have a problem about thread titles?? That's no reason to rally around creating a "facebook stalker forum"
I know what you mean, however message board people would be the least of my worries if I had a facebook. I would be more concerned about serial killers, perverts, con artists, identity thieves, jealous husbands, etc.
That is so weird. My Facebook connections are almost exclusively from this pool of people. Birds of a feather, I guess.
To me, Facebook is for people that I personally know and want to keep in touch with. It's mostly family and friends. Some people are a little closer to the acquaintance side, mostly high school classmates who I haven't seen in 20 years.
I use Twitter more anonymously. I follow people I don't know but are generally public figures. I only follow 2-3 people that I know on Twitter.
With that type of use, following people like ISU athletes on Twitter is OK. By default, you can follow anyone without their acceptance. Friending people that you don't know on Facebook is creepy. By default, you have to ask for and be accepted as their friend.
That thread last night was awful. I don't care if you bring something that a player says on Facebook or Twitter into this board as long as it is definitive. Stalk away if they say "I'm Leaving". When they say something vague that can be interpreted 1,000,000 different ways...leave it alone.
