I also use it to connect with other genealogists. Many of my real-life friends I originally met through Facebook.
The privacy thing bugs me, too. I don't share much. I also don't play games and all the other time wasters there. I've learned to block a lot / hide a lot and make Facebook work for me.
On that note, contact me some time about our Pope County connections through the Bowdens and Williamsons.
