How can I convince my parents to let me have a facebook account? I really would like a facebook and that's how all my friends communicate,but my parents don't want me to have a facebook cause they think it's unsafe. What could I say to convince them?thank you!

I started a website recently and purchased 10,000 Facebook fans from *spamlink* for our Facebook page and the results were amazing! I passed all my competitors when it comes to the number of Facebook fans... some competitors have been in business since 1999, but now we have 20 times more fans than them on Facebook, which made it seem that I've been in business much longer than them !


I knew there was a reason I steered clear.

We now have 3,377 member in our Mint Facebook Group. Granted that number fluctuates a bit due to all the bots I keep having to boot :-P.

Why should a more-or-less free operating system have a Facebook group where users can click fancy "Like" buttons and talk about things already discussed here?
Why should anyone join that Facebook thing at all? Facebook is dead.

Now I think it would be nice to make it a nice positive group where we can share stuff how awesome Mint is. It's all to easy to let it degrade in another 'HELP xxx is not working' group. :wink:

I don't use Facebook either (I deleted my account a while ago) but I think a Facebook group for Linux Mint is a good thing. It helps spread the word about our distro for one.

Couldn't agree with you more: 1) we don't need a fb group, when we have our own forum; 2) freedom is incompatible with facebook and google+, ; 3) if someone wants to get in touch with NSA, one can find other ways to do so.
I don't like the idea of social networks in general. However, there are people who have to use facebook. For example, if your job is social media marketing, you don't really have much choice. So these people, who are already on fb or g+ and are linux mint users, can at least spread the word about GNU/Linux and free software movement. It's sad but if you want to wake people up, you should enter the matrix yourself. :wink: Because this is where they spend their time.
That said, I still think that a facebook group is a bad idea.
