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.

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.

Facebook pet peeve I have only encountered due to being forced to use facebook today: The plague of giant baby face close ups as grownup profile pictures. You are not giant babies. Well maybe you are, but you're not that giant baby.

Here are the internal Facebook posts of employees discussing today’s leaked memo - The Verge

I just...how are so many people so fucking dumb? So completely lacking in self awareness that Facebook employees are ACTUALLY whining about people 'spying' on them and taking that fuckface's comments out of context? YOUR FUCKING JOB IS TO SPY ON PEOPLE AND TAKE THEIR COMMENTS OUT OF CONTEXT, YOU WORTHLESS DIPSHITS.

(If you missed them, the fuckface's comments are pretty great too. A supposedly devil's advocate argument in favor of growth for growth's sake, AKA the ideology of the cancer cell.)

Some company involved in this whole data-mining business got them bad PR so they are now the bad guys and facebook had nothing to do with it..

They already figured out that they need to grow at all costs but people are jumping this ship in droves, so when facebook finds itself strapped for cash but they sit on this huge database that knows everything about everyone and there's this naive baby-faced idiot in the middle of it, what could possibly go wrong that hasn't gone wrong already?

Have any of you guys downloaded your Facebook data, and would you tell me something about it?

In your call and/or text records, how are third parties' identities listed? Like, if you talk to someone in your contact list, are they identified as the name you have for them in your contact list (e.g., "Mom," "Marco from the club," "Hortense's asshole ex"), as the name in their own Facebook profile, or something else?

What about ones that aren't in your contact list? Are they identified? If so, by the name on their Facebook profile or something else?

I can confirm that I have downloaded my Facebook data. I can also inform you that I'm unable to answer your question. Because I have not actually looked at it yet. Additionally, I can notify you I am thinking of downloaded the data Google has on me as well.

I've started to look through the data.

Apparently I've watched one movie: Звездные войны: Эпизод 7
:wtf:
I did indeed watch that movie, but not in Russian.
