Is not joining Facebook a sign you're a psychopath?

Facebook has become such a pervasive force in modern society that increasing numbers of employers, and even some psychologists, believe people who aren't on social networking sites are 'suspicious.'

The German magazine Der Taggspiegel went so far as to point out that accused theater shooter James Holmes and Norwegian mass murder Anders Behring Breivik have common ground in their lack of Facebook profiles.

On a more tangible level, Forbes.com reports that human resources departments across the country are becoming more wary of young job candidates who don't use the site.

Talk about twisting reality.

I am more apt to believe this article from 2008: 'Mental risk' of Facebook teens

Good to know all the child predators on facebook are mentally

There is something called LinkedIn

which is the preferred social media site for professionals. Although I believe the CEO of LinkedIN also attended Bilderberg this year, as well as top execs from Facebook.

I don't join facebook because I don't wish to be survailed by CIA agents.

I never joined Facebook and never will join it.

I'm glad Alex Jones placed this article on the front page on his websites to show the Big Brother trying to force us all to join a site created to enable spying.

Spying is the name of the game

Alex Jones has his own "social media network." I believe it's called planetinfowars or something.

Now I;m not trying to bash Alex Jones but just think about it: a place where anyone can access the pages and detailed information of people who hate government and know about their conspiracies of power and collective manipulation. Jones says he will not sell anyone's information to government agencies or third parties, but c'mon. The site can be accessed by anyone; it's a .com domain. If he was trying to be sincere he would have at least ran it on a secure server or routed access to it through an anonymous browser.

I'd be weary of any attempt Jones makes to try to get people to sign up for planetinfowars. I saw there is even a "dating" section.
