Re: Who is to be blamed?
There was a time when I had no FB account at all.  Nothing.  No one came into my office to put a gun against my head and ordered me to open one up.  I did it on my own and generally visit family, friends and people I NEVER thought to be in touch with again in this lifetime.  I am going back to pre-school classmates.  But my choice.  My choice to enter whatever personal data i put there.  My hands on the keyboard.  I have direct absolute control over what is entered into any online account by first contact.  After that, well, things fall apart.  But the number one culprit has to be he user.  Don't like FB?  You're not alone.  I hate Zucky-boy anyway.  So, delete your account.  Come on - i Dare you!

All that espionage
Facebook has a lot to answer to in all of its recent security and privacy breaches. To think that all of that hoo-ha has been going on for so long before they actually confessed that they were aware of what was going on? If people haven't complained or brought to light that all of this was going on, can you imagine how much more of our information might have inadvertently be spread around?

Who is to be blamed?
To be honest, who really thoroughly reads every single word of the terms and conditions of every platform we use? Even if Facebook did state in detailed its privacy clause to its members, I highly doubt that anyone would even bother to read it. Hence, who is to be blamed at the end of the day? The service provider or the users?
