I've had no problems.  I don't post pictures of myself or people I know.  I don't post too personal information.  I don't post everything I do, where I am going or what I'm going to be doing.  I don't post my dob, where I live, relationship status or any particularly identifying personal information.  I like to remain a mystery.  The people that I communicate with online who are my real friends and family already know who I am so I don't feel the need to share the info with strangers.  My profile is always public because I don't care who sees it because there really isn't anything to see.  Oh yeah I never use my real name.  If I want to friend people I know I will send them a message saying hey it's "Jane."

Some people like to let it all hang out online and feel comfortable with it but that's not me.  Keep in mind employers, police, government, creditors, and psycho stalkers use the internet too and they might be searching for you to find information about you.  I'd rather not give them any fuel for the fire but that's me.

I don't like myspace, but I do like the capabilities of Facebook. This is a great avenue to re-connect with people, but I wouldn't trust this to put too much personal information about myself.
