If you needed a reason to lie to Social Media.

from Farm Bureau

Birthdate: Did you know that with your name, address, and birthdate in hand, some scammers may be able to buy your Social Security number on websites? In fact, with your birthdate and hometown, thieves can often guess all of your digits. So think twice about listing your birthdate on social media and other websites. - See more at:

Phone Number: Online software can allow fraudsters to see your phone number anyway. When you receive “robocalls,” responding to “opt out,” instructions may serve to notify the caller that the number works and has potential for future victimization. Making callbacks to offers of free merchandise may also reveal your phone number, which can then show up on the “suckers list” that scammers sell to others online. - See more at:

So People don't give out these numbers.  You already know about not giving out your SSN.  You also might want to question giving out this other information.  

Lie to the man people.  Lie to Google, Lie to Facebook, I do and I recommend that you do as well.

start 2015 with the top 5 posts from last year.
So the top 5 from last year.  I did weed out the programming posts.  They actually win the prize.  They get sooo many hits.  3 times as many as the pictures or the spout off posts.   So I think that is interesting.  But the posts I like best are actually the ones that get the least hits.  The ones that I think are just ok.  It seems like others like better or I just word them differently enough that people click them.  Not sure.  But you tell me.

So everyone else's top 5.
