This is from a program that I rarely use anyway. No big deal, uninstalled. Shared with: Public, Keith I Myers, Shane Fogleman, Hugh McVea, Jason Adams+1’d by: Ana Medina, the derek Fawcett, Robert WarrenHugh McVea – 2014-09-07 20:01:50-0400+Keith I Myers it’s got to be running so it can constantly upload your personal information to the Facebook servers. Facebook = Malware Keith I Myers – 2014-09-07 20:04:19-0400+Hugh McVea – I dont disagree with that. Sadly I use Facebook to keep up with a few groups that I am part of to know when our next meetups are. Hugh McVea – 2014-09-07 20:05:45-0400+Keith I Myers best to just use the Website version.
