    The First Thing You Should Do With Facebook Places: Don’t Let Other People Tag You

    Posted on 20 August 2010

    So, everyone’s excited about the new Facebook Places, right? The Facebook service that lets you check-in, Foursquare style, at whatever hip Sushi bar/bicycle repair shop you happen to be in. Oh, and also other people can check you in, too.

    At the Facebook places launch event, an engineer equated tagging someone in a check-in with tagging someone in a picture. Not quite the same thing. Someone has to point a thing at you and take your picture. But anyone can go to the bathroom, tag you in a check-in, then a significant other/spouse/boss/stranger sees it and: Boom. Your life is ruined. A picture does not automatically tell someone exactly where you are, with whom, when, and whether you are having an awesome time, despite the fact that you should be at your girlfriend’s terrible art opening.

    Here’s how to make sure other people can’t tag you on Places……

    One of the worst things about Facebook is you cannot completely delete an account just make it inactive.
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    What does 'Facebook Places' actually do?

    You are having an affair with your wife's sister. Your wife's sister checks into her home and says "Having awesome sex with [Your name here]". Your wife sees this on her sister's wall and divorces you. (Also, a robber you're friends with steals your Star Wars memorabilia collection because he knows you're out having the affair.)
    Couldn't she simply write that on her wall/twitter/wherever anyway?

    Just post politically incorrect things, and your facebook account will vanish entirely

    Indeed. I never created an account and do not intend to create one just for the sake of "being hip". It's and empty and meaningless way of communication. I will talk to people worth talking to face to face (or on MSN, if they live far away).
