Facebook’s Obsessive Need for Private Data
As some of you might know, I’ve attempted to add a Facebook page for this website. I’m torn as to whether or not I should do this, simply because of the invasion of privacy required. I may seem nuts, but I think it’s ridiculous that I need to provide my mobile phone number to them. Oh but wait, if I don’t want to do that there is another option. They’ll “let” me provide them a copy of a government issued I.D.
Facebook is into data mining and identity compromising. Will I give them my mobile? I’m not sure yet. It’d be nice to be able to post the links on Facebook, so maybe I will, but let it be known that I’m against Facebook’s never ending need to have as much data about everyone to sell to whom they see fit.

Why do I need to confirm my identity by providing my phone number?
This is a security measure that helps make sure that you’re a real person with just one Facebook account.
To confirm your identity, all you need to do is to follow the on-site instructions to add your mobile phone number. As soon as we confirm who you are, you’ll be able to access your Facebook account again. We won’t contact you by phone without your permission.
Please note that If you have more than one Facebook account, this is a violation of Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and your extra accounts will be disabled. When you choose which account you want to keep, please verify your identity using that account.I can’t use my phone number to verify my account.If you’re unable to verify your account using a mobile phone number, you can submit a request to verify your account using your government-issued ID.
