You can help Nepal just sitting at your computer.
Take some time. Spend some time. It really is the only thing you can never replace. Spend it on something that will benefit the world. I cannot take credit for the following text. I give that to another. But good idea after all. You could help with the (ongoing) aftermath of the Nepal earthquake. There are a couple of projects that need computer / mouse skill (if not development): clickity [^] Digitizing satelite images to find roads and so forth to help with the relief effort. Clickity[^] Spotting damaged and destroyed buildings, so relief workers know where to go. The former is a long process - you have to train. The second is pretty much "jump in a do it" - it's a consensual "this is a building, says 6 people" confidence thing. If you have the time, give it a try!

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.
