    When I joined Facebook, it sucked out all names form my Address Book in my computer and in my name “invited” all my friends former lovers and foes to my “group” on Facebook. This is not acceptable and should be considered invasion of privacy of the worst kind.
    The question was “are you going to recommend it to your friends?” When I clicked “Yes” it sucked all the names without giving me a chance to select them. I noticed that another company offering storage “in a cloud” tried the same trick, but I would not let them. I just wonder how safe is my backup in a cloud with them?
