A lot has happened on Facebook

A lot has happened on Facebook

When you lose interest in Facebook, they start emailing you.

Because they want you to rub the lotion on the skin again.

They want to show you ads based on your menstrual cycles.

Facebook gave Netflix and Spotify access to your PM

As Facebook Raised a Privacy Wall, It Carved an Opening for Tech Giants

As Facebook Raised a Privacy Wall, It Carved an Opening for Tech Giants

Facebook also allowed Spotify, Netflix and the Royal Bank of Canada to read, write and delete users’ private messages, and to see all participants on a thread — privileges that appeared to go beyond what the companies needed to integrate Facebook into their systems, the records show.

Oh good.

Hackers hack Facebook for 30 million accounts

Hackers stole millions of Facebook users’ personal data

  • Some 30 million Facebook users were victims of the hacking attack it revealed recently.
  • That attack exposed the personal information of many users, including their names, phone numbers, birth dates, and more.
  • That kind of information could be used for identity theft and to compromise users’ financial and other accounts, security and privacy experts say.
  • The exposure of that data can also pose particular and obvious dangers to people who are trying to keep a low profile, such as victims of domestic violence.

Oh good.

Facebook apps down 25%

1 in 4 Americans Really Have Deleted Facebook's App, Pew Study Finds

1 in 4 Americans Really Have Deleted Facebook’s App, Pew Study Finds

Americans have soured on Facebook in the past year, as more people come to terms with the toxic role that the social media platform plays in their lives. A new Pew Research Center survey shows that a large percentage of the population has taken extended breaks from Facebook in the past year, with 26 percent of American users saying that they’ve deleted the app from their phones completely.

Gizmodo has reached out to Facebook for comment. We’ve asked why they believe young people are deleting the Facebook app from their phones and whether it has anything to do with Facebook’s complicity in genocide. We’ll update this article when we hear back.

Oh, that very last paragraph is such a nice burn.

Facebook: an adult man asks a 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures, wyd?

Facebook: an adult man asks a 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures, wyd?

Facebook asks users: should we allow men to ask children for sexual images?

On Sunday, the social network ran a survey for some users asking how they thought the company should handle grooming behaviour. “There are a wide range of topics and behaviours that appear on Facebook,” one question began. “In thinking about an ideal world where you could set Facebook’s policies, how would you handle the following: a private message in which an adult man asks a 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures.”

The options available to respondents ranged from “this content should not be allowed on Facebook, and no one should be able to see it” to “this content should be allowed on Facebook, and I would not mind seeing it”.

Who the hell approved this crap? It didn’t pop-up red flags for anybody at FB HQ?

Here’s what happens when you unfriend someone

tcr! · Feb 2, 2018 at 2:47 pm

Audio (MP3): 20180202 - Here's what happens when you unfriend someone

here's what happens when you unfriend someone

This showed up on my timeline just a little bit ago.

So Facebook “noticed” I unfriended somebody. I highly doubt if they just “noticed” anything. They KNOW our every move people. They track and follow said movements even when we’re not on their website or using their apps.

These social media overlords go so far as having shadow accounts of people that don’t have real, actual Facebook accounts. Oh yeah, it’s true. Your dead cousin who died back in 1996? Yep, he’s on Facebook but only FB knows this. Well, Instagram knows, too.

So they both know he was your cousin and that you guys went to Guacamole once for Spring Break. That’s what happens when you upload your contact list to Facebook. Don’t ever do that again.

“Noticed” — ha. They make it sound like Wimpy just noticed a hamburger on Tuesday. Facebook don’t just “notice” shit. They prob predicted I was gonna unfriend Sally days before I even considered it. They got their Machine Learning™ that studies who and how often I unfriend people and then use the algorithms to tie it all back to my dead cousin, Vinny.

Next their post says, “This means that they’ll no longer be able to see…” What am I five? I know what the hell happens when I unfriend someone. That’s why I unfriended them.

And then that last sentence, “Don’t worry, we won’t tell them that you’ve unfriended them.”

I’m surprised they didn’t throw in, “but we could.”

Just like when Luiz coulda ripped Blu’s throat out but didn’t…

youtube.com/watch?v=xCHSWEx6iX0

…but he coulda.

And finally, this team should change their name from “The Facebook Help Team” to the “Facebook Hamburger Helper Team” — at least that’d make more sense.

Apparently I’ve been banned from the What’s Happening in Geneva Facebook group.

It may have been because I questioned whether or not an Admin’s post actually happened in Geneva (my inquiry was subsequently deleted). Maybe it was because my best post there garnered over 150 likes while said Admin’s post got 4.

It also may have been because I let the group know that the latest issue of my magazine was now available in Geneva:

Some of you Geneva folk may know that I put out a monthly magazine of things I write and photos I take around the Fox Valley. It’s filled with pretty much the kinda thing you’d expect from me.

This month’s cover photo was taken right outside the Portillo’s by Super Target on the east side. That’s St. Charles turf but whatever. The hydrant flushing piece you all know and love is even in there!

diaries for Sep 2017 - cover diaries for Sep 2017 - inside

Anyways, at this very moment I’m in the Starbucks on State in Geneva and have a few copies of the magazine with me. If you want one, I’ll be here until about 7:15 or 7:20pm.

Yes, you can buy single issues and subscribe for a full year if you’re into that kinda thing.

tcrbang.com/diaries

β˜•οΈ

Maybe since I don’t have a true brick and mortar store I was crossing the line. Maybe since one of the Admins is a publisher for Fox Valley Magazine, I was competing with and/or threatening him.

Who knows. Who cares. My life will go on after the group just as it most certainly went on before it. πŸ˜‰
