I wouldn't support Facebook, if you can. They are not for true Liberty and competition! Besides, they do a lot of data mining! Why not use Kickstarter or GoFund me?

What about windows 10? After loading it when it first came out I quickly realized all the background stuff running. So I disabled everything I could in the security/privacy settings and warned my friends and family. Google/Facebook/Yahoo/ Amazon all seem to be selling our data. There is probably alot more with online shopping backgroud Ad apps too. I agree that Facebook wants to privatize the Internet, which I object too. I like GoFund me but it doesn't show up for public view until you have a minimum amount donated. I have not used Kickstarter.

Yeah, i could update to Win 10 for free, but am not going to do it, since I heard it is horrible for privacy, and my Computer is older.

I know a lot of people are skeptical of Facebook, but I think its worth understanding this program once it rolls out. Facebook drives a huge amount of traffic, and if the terms are favorable it could be a positive thing.
