My dog, the only one here with a facebook page, is devastated. His alumni buddies at Purina Dog Chow university are now being bombarded with spam about how to get out from under their student loans.

You think you’re not on Facebook? Think again. Facebook no doubt has a shadow profile made just for you.
You may recall that recently Facebook found a bug exposing personal details of 6 million user accounts. What you may not have realised is that this led users to know more about how Facebook stores our data, and shows us clearly that Facebook does indeed have shadow profiles on most of us.
Scary stuff? Well, yes. It’s now clear that NSA and other government spying agencies use tools like PRISM to get data from sites like Facebook, and there is nothing we can do about it. Add to our worries the fact that Facebook may be sharing details about us with spying agencies that we never even shared with Facebook in the first place… Big Brother knows more about you than you may think. What Is PRISM? Everything You Need to Know What Is PRISM? Everything You Need to Know The National Security Agency in the US has access to whatever data you're storing with US service providers like Google Microsoft, Yahoo, and Facebook.

How Can Facebook Have A Shadow Profile For Me?
How does Facebook have this information about you? Well, it’s all thanks to their automatic harvesting of information from email accounts and phones. Yes, all you need is one friend to search for friends using their email account or one friend to install an app on their phone. Bingo! There’s your Facebook shadow profile with your phone number and email addresses kept together to identify you later.
If you have a Facebook account using your email or phone number, they will be linked together with information Facebook already has about you. Your public and semi-private information is stored alongside all of these details you never knew Facebook knew about you.
This is what’s known as your “Shadow Profile” and it explains why you probably have one whether you use Facebook or not. Oh yes, Facebook says they don’t collect information about non-users. Do we believe that? Not really. And besides, with the amount of people who do have Facebook accounts, it’s already enough to worry about.

I downloaded all of Mr Ed's data that they admit to and there is nothing remotely linking to me. (no phone numbers, no address, no Email close to me), The "friends" have been pretty good about playing along too. I am pretty careful not to be there. I understand the facial recognition software and I keep my face out of there too. Google, Amazon and a few others may be far more troubling.

Some Google employees are upset that Google is doing facial recognition work for the spooks. So much for 'do no harm.' Person Of Interest here we come.

The trick is to give them plenty of faces on your page that are not anyone you know or at least not easy to link to you. To that end, allow lots of friends that you don't really know. The farther from you and yours, the better. Try to avoid anyone that will attract attention like anyone named Muhammad ali Kabuum ;-)
