There has been much discussion on this subject in another thread, and it seems to me that there is a great deal of confusion. I want to put Q&A in a seperate thread to try to establish what the actual facts are. I have to confess to a certain ignorance of how Facebook works, and I am reluctant to register in order to find out first hand, because I find the privacy agreement to be.... well, let's just say it's not to my liking. When responding to this thread, please keep in mind that it's purpose is to gather information, not to beat each other up. Here goes: This is what was said in another thread: *If I do NOT sign up for Facebook AND I do not install AvatarBook, then my sim's info will not show up for someone who *is* using Facebook and/or Avatarbook.* But others are saying just the opposite: ANYONE who uses the Facebook/Avatarbook (whatever) feature, CAN view my sim's info. Not everybody can be right. Now, let's get this straightened out. Facebook is the mother site that links to the internet, correct? Avatarbook is the plug-in? applet? that must be installed in order to view TSO information IG, right? Assuming that is correct - some questions: Can someone, using *only* Facebook, and NOT a TSO subscriber, view anything inside TSO? If "yes", what kind of info? Same question, but with Avatarbook 'installed'? Can a TSO subscriber, using *only* Facebook, and NOT in-game, view anything inside TSO? If "yes", what kind of info? Same question, but with Avatarbook 'installed'? Can anyone, in-game, use Facebook/Avatarbook to view information about a Sim whose human has NOT registered with Facebook? If "yes", what kind of info? What kind of privileges are given to 'Free Account' players who use Facebook/Avatarbook? What must I do to ensure that my sim's info can not be viewed? Is simply not registering for a Facebook account enough? Or do I have to register an account in order to block my sims? Please feel free to add any pertinent info not covered by these questions. Thanks.
