Isn't this a bit of a bad idea, security wise?

Security services are well into facebook. If you put your details down on there, they never get erased. Muppets!

It's not security services I'd be worried about, if they wanna get you they'll get you wink

Possibly some low-level wankers might sign up as a friend and get a few names and whatnot. But I'm not too bothered about that.

You have 5 new friend requests:

The Government would like to be your friend. Accept Reject Ignore
The Man would like to be your friend. Accept Reject Ignore
Tom O'Carroll would like to be your friend. Accept Reject Ignore
The Police would like to be your friend. Accept Reject Ignore
Tony BLIAR would like to be your friend. Accept Reject Ignore

the guvmint certainly can't get much off of facebook that they couldn't already get off of cell phones records.

However it is becoming more common for employers to look you up on social networking sites, something to keep in mind.

It helps combat that danger if you use a pseudonym, so that only people with your personal email or who know what ur likely to use as ur pseudonym can look you up. It doesn't even matter if its an obviously fake name (like mine...Ive got my middle & surnames as "Kaze no Kae" <_<), they still need to know what to look for.

You don't need to do that - you can control your privacy settings completely and just set yourself as private so no one can search for you on there.

I've actually seen a couple of job ads that mention "show us your amazing facebook profile" now - admittedly they were for internet marketing or some such crap.

I agree with the sentiment, but in practice its sometimes wise to limit candour - for example, not showing your employers the perfect excuse to discipline you, or not encouraging them to get the fuzz down to your next direct action by advertising it where they can easily snoop on you.

surely advertising will always do this?

Unfortunately, the dynamic at a lot of workplaces is that it would be unpolitic to deny a friend request from an immediate supervisor. I've at least had that dilemma at one workplace, where all of my co-workers were "friends" with the management.

Hence why its smart to use a pseudonym. They can't add you if they can't find you.

Bump because we now have a fan page, we might drop the other two and just keep fan page in future because that seems like the best way of keeping in touch with people:

Any update on this? Seems a bit odd having 3 separate f/b presences

looking at the CrimethInc. Facebook page, it's embarrassing, it's got links to Ron Paul fan sites on it with comments like:
