Default Re: Bend Over, Facebook is Back

So, on the desktop, all of the comments on posts default to "Top Comments" and not "Chronological", and I haven't found a way to change this. This makes discussion heavy groups completely unusable.

These discussion oriented groups, like "The Flop House" FB page are literally the main draw to FB, so now I'm compelled not to use it. *shrug* I'm not sorry if this breaks my FB viewing habit.

You should try Fluff Busting Purity.
It's the only way I can use FB, although they try and break it every so often it allows for tons of customization compared to normal FB.

Amusingly facebook autoblocks any post that links to FBP.

I have FB because it beats the fucking hell out of visiting or speaking to my relatives in person.

How Facebook Outs Sex Workers - Gizmodo

Quote:
Leila is a sex worker. She goes to great lengths to keep separate identities for ordinary life and for sex work, to avoid stigma, arrest, professional blowback, or clients who might be stalkers (or worse).

Her real identitythe public one, who lives in California, uses an academic email address, and posts about politicsjoined Facebook in 2011. Her sex-work identity is not on the social network at all; for it, she uses a different email address, a different phone number, and a different name. Yet earlier this year, looking at Facebooks People You May Know recommendations, Leila (a name Im using using in place of either of the names she uses) was shocked to see some of her regular sex-work clients.

Despite the fact that shed only given Facebook information from her vanilla identity, the company had somehow discerned her real-world connection to these peopleand, even more horrifyingly, her account was potentially being presented to them as a friend suggestion too, outing her regular identity to them.

So, just because I think this needs to be pointed out every time: In the US, individuals have virtually no right to privacy, but corporations such as Facebook and credit reporting agencies and data brokers that exploit that information do.
