Hackers hack Facebook for 30 million accounts

tcr! · Oct 13, 2018 at 9:12 am

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.

Walgreens - do not reply

Walgreens - do not reply

“We want to know what you think” is the subject line for this here email.

Yet the From address is donotreply@photo.walgrees.com.

And then the Reply-to address is donotreply@mail.walgrees.com.

You’d think that if they really did want to know what people think, they’d allow us peons to reply to their incoming, unsolicited emails.

Alexa, how many days in a year

tcr! · Jul 14, 2018 at 9:11 am

Alexa how many days in a year

You’ve got to be kidding me, second most requested. 🙄

Maybe it’s not Alexa that’s dumb. Maybe she’s dumb because people are asking her dumb questions.

If you consider how many questions little kids ask Alexa, it may not be a question of stupidity, but rather one of age.
….at least one can hope.

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

tcr! · Mar 6, 2018 at 12:59 pm

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?

The Browser War was serious business. A cautionary tale for today’s young browsers.

keamoose keamoose · Feb 9, 2018 at 2:08 pm

BTW, kind of wish we’d all settled on a better word than “browser”. It reminds me of eyebrows.

tcr! tcr! · Feb 10, 2018 at 7:38 am

I believe that we’re seeing the beginnings of Browser War II. Google Chrome is starting to remind me of Windows 95.

And yes: Eye Browsers 😊

keamoose keamoose · Feb 10, 2018 at 12:32 pm

Now that I’m thinking about it, I don’t really understand the whole browser war thing. They’re all free. What’s the benefit to the browser companies?

tcr! tcr! · Feb 10, 2018 at 2:09 pm

This may sound like a leap at first but it’s about building moats around the castle.

As an example: Gmail works best in Chrome. Having people use Chrome then keeps people using Gmail. Same goes for YouTube.

Vendors with something to loose give away browsers (or whatever) to keep people visiting/using their websites (or services). Once people are locked in they tend to keep using those same services rather than trying something new.

And then Vimeo and Hotmail wither on the vine while Google’s castle is hustlin and bustlin.

Companies are very protective of their websites.

As another example, when I post something good directly on Facebook I’ll get tons of enagagement. If I post it here then link to it from FB, I might see a quarter or maybe even zero engagement on Facebook. I suspicion, since the latter contains a link away from FB, they tend not to show that post as much to my friends and followers.

Facebook didn’t do away with chronological timelines because that’s what people wanted. They did it so they could control the flow of information. Just like Google, they want people to stay within their castle.

This topic also speaks to why every social media site has a free stand-alone mobile app. Click a link to a third party website? They keep you in the app instead of open the default web browser …and that makes it much harder for you to leave.

I could go on and on. 😊

keamoose keamoose · Feb 10, 2018 at 5:09 pm

That totally makes sense, and I’ve heard that before about Facebook not showing posts with links. I really hate the apps that open websites in the same app. The site never works properly. I always click “open in browser” immediately on principle.

tcr! tcr! · Feb 16, 2018 at 8:48 am

Yep, me too. The worst part of the in-app browsers is that they typically don’t share cookies, etc. with the default browser. Meaning, you’re signed-in to a website with Chrome and then not when browsing in the FB in-app browser. It’s total anarchy.

keamoose keamoose · Feb 16, 2018 at 9:00 am

There is one slightly embarrassing exception where I do like the FB app browser. Sometimes when I just want mindless entertainment, I do click on some of the stupid clickbait articles (yeah I know FB is probably enjoying the tracking info), but the thing with those articles is that in the real browser they’re split across like 5 ad-filled pages, and in the FB browser it’s all on one page and the ads tend to fail to load. It’s probably a deal between FB and Postize.

tcr! tcr! · Feb 16, 2018 at 9:26 am

Ah… Using FB to do your clickbait bidding.

Good work 👍

keamoose keamoose · Feb 22, 2018 at 7:33 pm

FB closed my clickbait loophole!! Have you had any readers from California in the past few days? 🤔

tcr! tcr! · Feb 23, 2018 at 7:16 am

Haha! I bet FB crawls the Internet just as much as Google does.

Me: Alexa, play some music that I might like.

Alexa starts playing “Hungry Like the Wolf.”

Me: YES! Alexa, you sweet bitch, volume 1000!!! 💪

Alexa: Sorry, you can only set the volume between zero and 10.

Me: 😭

Me: Alexa, play some 80s.

Alexa: “Welcome to the jungle, we got fun and…”

Me: Alexa, next song. Guns N’ Roses aren’t the only band from the 80s.

Seriously. I love tophats as much as the next Gibson Les Paul but if I hear Sweet Child o’ Mine one more time I’m gonna puke.

Neegan’s not dead yet

tcr! · Dec 18, 2017 at 9:19 am

Michonne and Carl in The Walking Dead's How It's Gotta Be

Sara and I finally watched the latest episode (S08E08) of the Walking Dead last night. It’s really getting on my nerves that Negan’s not dead yet. I mean he’s always strutting around, blow harding about something or another. I would’ve taken him out episodes ago.

From all my video gaming experience I’ve learned that you don’t fuck around with enemies. You see them and then you shoot them.

And then how in the hell did Negan and the Saviors sneak up on Alexandria? Carl and Michonne are just standing around in the dark with their thumbs up their butts and then Negan and his merry crew start knocking on the front gate. Carl’s like “whaaaat?”

And Carl’s still wearing that gauze eyepatch. 🙄

Junk is first then second

Junk is first then second

“Junk” is above the “Trash” in the folder list but “Erase Junk Mail” is below “Erase Deleted Items” in the right-click menu.

This is the kinda thing that drives my OCD nuts. It’s been this way forever, too.
