Re: Facebook, be aware

Okay, I'm getting the rough idea, but I still don't understand why anyone (let alone millions of people) would want to join this 'club'.
Surely I can't be the only person who just does not understand the attraction.
Umm, not sure if I should admit to giving my friends a call on a landline and inviting them down to the pub if I fancy a chinwag and maybe meeting other likeminded people there.
I do have a mobile phone, the Dearly Beloved bought me one yesterday to use when I go into hospital on Christmas Eve (back operation) and now all I need to do is learn how to use it.

Facebook's photo-sharing site Instagram has updated its privacy policy giving it the right to sell users' photos to advertisers without notification.

Unless users delete their Instagram accounts by a deadline of 16 January, they cannot opt out.

The changes also mean Instagram can share information about its users with Facebook, its parent company, as well as other affiliates and advertisers.



I don't use facebook, never have, but I wonder how many users know (or knew) the photos and videos etc you uploaded belong to Instagram and not Facebook. Well that's how it looks to me. I assume it was in the small print of the T&C's when signing up.

So now all this stuff people have put on facebook is for sale.

I know this sounds a bit like "I told you so" but just wait for all that spam. But then again Mark Zuckerberg probably needs a few more Bucks!
Good reminder Rob.
I've always been aware of Facebook!

They have shareholders to satisfy now since the IPO this May..and boy did the value of those over-priced shares plummet!

As if daily dose of people's newsfeeds isn't enough....they now tell you what your friends 'Like' incase you may like e.g Sainsburys too? target display ads next to your homepage geared to your age/location based on sign up or GPS data. Facebooks market now is Asia, the average User there having 600+ friends (e.g. FB stylee) which kind of corresponds to the numbers that are invited to weddings there, so that figure is not unrealistic ..this means the potential $$$$ can be earnt in that sector from sponsors and advertisers.


Any photo you ever put of yourself, kids, family, holiday etc belongs to Facebook or Instagram that Facebook acquired earlier on.

Anyone can lift any of your photos thru your friend of friends network.

Now with a timeline of people's life history left on the www. years later anyone can retrieve this information and it could come to play years later down the line depending on what career youngsters chose, e.g. Politics, Prime minister, jobs of sensitive nature etc it would play heavily on people's lives both when alive and even after death due to the electronic trail they leave behind....

Only if you choose to participate surely - we don't and (as yet) have no intention of doing so.
Anyway, I dare say some other fad will come along at some point to replace Facebook but my mind cannot take on what that might be - holograms of total strangers sitting on the edge of your bath having a chat I expect!
Now, back to this first ever mobile phone of mine - wheres my specs.....

Well how about this then?

FACEBOOK WILL END ON JANUARY 15th, 2013! | Weekly World News

It must be true - Weekly World News is a very reliable source of information! (In fact it's 'the world's only reliable news')

Re: Facebook, be aware

They just never give up, trying to make everyone go completeley public do they , just got a message while I was chatting to a mate , saying they were making it so you will get messages from everybody, not just friends , go into fizzbook and go to messages then view one fullscreen then go to options and alter back to friends (well, MOSTLY friends )

I despair with this moron and his cronies, they really think the public are brain dead

Re: Facebook, be aware

I joined fb wben I came to Turkey to keep up with my kids doings but they stopped using it a long time ago. I keep getting emails to say someone 'liked' my recent post despite me not having made any! How do I wipe the slate clean and unsubscribe?
