How about staying off Facebook?

Sound advice. For the paranoid. You have less chance of being bothered by identity thieves than the chance of being hit by a car. Dangerous world! But it is the world we have. Who is realistically going to check on every place they can imagine where the names of their family members might be listed? Oh yes for sure go back over every place where your full birthday is left and threaten people if they don't remove it.

I imagine if someone were to steal my identity, they'd be in a hurry to return it quickly.

That's what we do. Thank goodness my wife and 19 year old son don't care much about computers and have no interest in social networking.

There are advantages to being a true Luddite.

Yep. I terminated my usage in January. Its a way to waste your time while enriching others.

I've already got TMP for that.
