** If you post detailed information about when and where you plan on traveling for your honeymoon, and your address, and don't have strict privacy settings ... well, don't be surprised when your house gets burgled while you're away.

** Which leads to some odd situations, where if somebody posts something genuinely sad, like the death of a family member... well, "like" isn't exactly appropriate, is it? It sort of forces a comment.


Added DiffLines:

** Mitigating this somewhat, in 2015 they added a more diverse range of ways to respond to a story without commenting, allowing the user to select from a range of emoticons representing "love", "haha", "yay", "wow", "sad" and "angry". None of these generally see as much use as the standard "like" button, but at least the option's there.

As of 2014, Facebook remains one of the most popular (and actually still more low-key; it hasn't taken as much flak as [[NewMediaAreEvil whipping boy]] [=MySpace=]) networking sites out there. More and more sites are adding Facebook Like buttons on their pages, making it look as if Facebook is taking over the Internet. It lacks most of [=MySpace's=] profile-customization options; no sparklies or rainbow-colored fonts allowed. This may be to Facebook's benefit, as it creates a more professional feeling. However, there are a huge number of applications that one can add to one's profile, for anything from horoscopes to celebrity-lookalike pictures. As of now, it has over '''''[[HolyShitQuotient 1 billion]]''''' users.
