If you do not want EVERYONE in those aforementioned groups to have your cell phone number, for instance - DONT POST IT! Membership in groups and what you decide to post on your profile also reflects on the type of person you are and the type of people you associate with. Others may form preconceived notions about what kind of person you are based solely on what they read from your profile. If you link to other websites in your profile, be aware that those sites, too, are reflective of you and your character. facebook.com allows you to post pictures of others - but also allows others to post pictures of you. Even if you are careful about what pictures you post of yourself, be cautious and check what pictures others have posted of you! Certain pictures could call your character into question.
