Using any P2P program is high risk. You don't know what it is you are downloading. If you continue to use Limewire, it is best to scan the download before opening it to view or install. Scan it with a good antispyware and antivirus that is updated regularly.
MySpace is loaded with malware. When clicking on ads, links, etc. posted on that site you never know what will happen.
I don't know how much info the dataminer is collecting. Not familiar with Facebook.
You may also be putting yourself at risk.
Most of what gets downloaded from p2ps is done illegally. There are a lot of lawyers making a good living off suing end users for the recording and film industry. http://www.2600.com/news/view/article/1372http://www.d-silence.com/headlines/P2P%20Piracy/23882http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=208946

“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded and the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics...you are all stardust.”― Lawrence M. Krauss
A 1792 U.S. penny, designed in part by Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, reads “Liberty Parent of Science & Industry.”
