There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

I don't think it's really useful to treat all Facebook accounts as equal. There's a difference between having a profile set to "friends only" with only your family and a few close friends able to view it and a profile with everything public or having 1,000 strangers added as friends or letting every fly-by-night game company have full access. Having a Facebook account tells you almost nothing about how much privacy is being lost or what kind of person someone is. As with most things in life, it's a subtle issue and your poll doesn't reflect that very well.

Absolutely. I voted for the "plenty of accounts, fake names and photos" option (though I only have the one account, it's the fake name and photo that I voted for). The reason I have the account is solely to follow other accounts (organisations, mostly, but a few individuals - most of my family and friends are Facebook-phobic).

It does never cease to amaze me the degree to which many (most...) Facebook users are prepared to give up their privacy. But that doesn't negate the value for me, or mean that all Facebook users are so naive.

Seems to me like such a large percentage of the population routing their communications, and storing personal info such as network of friends etc. through facebook's servers is the equivalent of a large percentage of the population storing their money in one bank.

I have two Facebook accounts. One is pretty extreme with the privacy settings. The other is a developer test account.

It's funny you ask with the poll about the RFID implant, as I just most recently posted a joke photo to my own Facebook profile where I am holding a real RFID pet chip syringe to someone's bared arms at a trade show where such things were for sale.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

One is pretty extreme with the privacy settings.

Question remains: private to who?
As far as I can see it, FB employees with access to the database still can overcome any privacy settings you may have for general public...

Oh, I'm aware of that. I never said that any of the information was correct.
