The (brain)rightless Facebook users...are you one of them?

There are recent field reports that Facebook is very well informed about …

non-Facebook-users. :open_mouth:

The options that permits to share cell-phone memories, emails and addresses of users that never wanted to have their data posted is a security and privacy worst case scenario.
Try it out, if you are a Facebook user and really did this “abuse” with the data of others, send an invitation to somebody you know he is not in Facebook. And contact him to print out the invitation email that comes in. I assure you that you will have people on it that the original sender does not know and maybe even the receiver is unaware of. It is sufficient that these users did “schedule” your data and Facebook knows everything. Against all privacy laws.

Combine the almighty Google, Facebook and the Cellphone provider charts of call listings and you understand that we are in a society that makes Orwells 1984 a “peaceful and bucolic landscape”.

Are you one of these people posting the life of others without thinking twice? And be honest in the poll.

What’s Facebook? :stuck_out_tongue:

I wanted to post the poll but ran into the time limit. Pitty, no good polls within 5 minutes or you have to write down the questions first.

Isn’t that the movie with Nicolas Cage and John Travolta??

That’s Face/Off :wink:

Yes for me Facebook is the same. Not seeing sense in it. But for example I got an invitation mail with suggestion for an astonishing amount of people…that I do know. So, the fact is: you don’t use it? People tag you and schedule you anyway. In detail. And toghether with your social contacts right away. And probably if they are stupid enough (or ruthless) with your phonenumber and so on and so forth.

It’s what happened in the third Bourne movie when Bourne used a book as a
weapon. “Face. Book.” :wink:

hint: write for hours if necessary spell check it, ‘word process’ it
and get it just perfect in (say) OpenOffice Writer, or kate, or kwrite
or or or or, in a lot less than five minutes:

-open a new posting window in polls
-copy from OpenOffice Writer (or whatever)
-paste into polls window
-press send/post (or whatever that button says)

no time limit, no waiting, no problem…

or, you could do like i do and take part in the forums via NNTP: no
time limit, no waiting, no problem…

liked it. :slight_smile:

Thank you Malcom, very kind indeed.

I used to use Facebook, but lately, it seemed that everytime I looked, they had changed their policy and unset my privacy options, making my information public. I would go back through the tons of settings, and a few weeks later, all my info would be public again. I got tired of them deciding that I need no privacy and that their profits should come before their users rights.

I tried to crank down the settings, delete as much of my info as I could and delete my account. Funny thing is, they allow you to delete your account, then they tell you that it will still be there should you decide to login again.>:) so now, I guess I will have to go check in weekly to see if they have magically made my info public again.>:(

It burns us precious!

do not believe in…
