This is just one more reason I adamantly refuse to get a Facebook account.

Of course, people just accept almost anyone who wants to friend them, never think about the consequences of putting photos and their information on the site, and post stupid or hurting comments.

I deleted my facebook account years ago.

I had a facebook count which was abolished, because I had no appropriate contour as this type of site. As for security on social networks, it is enough to control basic notions, and they become sure tools for his own person.
