    The greatest benefit of Facebook is that it has many groups on the site that you can join. So if you are interested in Chicago Cubs you can research Chicago Cubs in the groups section and you will be able to find friends on there that like the Cubs. This is just one example, I know that you can join groups of your favorite football team, television show, or whatever you want for the most part! If you can’t find a group for your interest, you can simply create one!

      Dear James

      Thanks for your input. I am a bit surprised that your comment does not seem to address the privacy challenges users face with Facebook directly – as outlined in this post.

      In fact, another trick to better protect your privacy when using Facebook is to change your setting concerning ads, such as:

      Opt out Facebook ads=sign-in -> Settings-> Privacy ->News Feed & Wall ->FB Ads ->Appear FB Ads => click no one #threats2watch

      Thanks for your input and I hope that you will comment again soon.
