  2. Bought the guy in the car behind me at DD his hot chocolate today, after I sat there and watched him yell at me because I was apparently taking too long to order…hopefully that will remind him that life is too short to be pissy at the drive thru!!

    My friend Kathleen who I was in school with for grades 1-12

    I always liked her and never would have heard about this if she hadn’t posted it to Facebook.

    I don’t know why you people complain about Facebook. Maybe you should not to pretend to be friends with those people who make Facebook miserable for you.

  6. ☛ Facebook

    I have created a new Facebook account. Well, two, actually. This is the one I may actually read the stuff that you post, pictures, etc.

    (I created another one for my “professional life” but, trust me, it will be remarkably boring you’re really probably not interested in that one unless you are interested in helping me strengthen my personal brand.)

    I will almost certainly not post much of anything to that Facebook account. I created it so I could keep up with people who use Facebook sort of like I use Tumblr, to post pictures, stories, etc.

    I won’t be “farming”, joining any “wars”, “poking”, or any other reindeer games. But if you have a podcast I like and it has a “fan page,” or if you post stuff there that you don’t post elsewhere, etc. and would like to be “friends” there, please send me a friend request (please note that I’m horrible at remembering “real names” so if your Twitter/Tumblr name is unlike your Facebook name, tell me in the comments.)

  7. Facebook founder Zuckerberg: “[People] ‘trust me’… dumb fucks”

    According to SAI sources, the following exchange is between a 19-year-old Mark Zuckerberg and a friend shortly after Mark launched The Facebook in his dorm room:

    Zuck: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard

    Zuck: Just ask. Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS

    [Redacted Friend’s Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?

    Zuck: People just submitted it.

    Zuck: I don’t know why.

    Zuck: They “trust me”

    Zuck: Dumb fucks.

    Read the rest at Businessinsider but I think this sums up the foundational feelings Zuckerberg has towards people who have built his fortune for him.

I’m tired of hearing people bitching.Graphic on the right is from the New York Times.Graphic on the left is edited by me. Click to embiggen.I know I’m simplifying, but Facebook is opt-in. Blow it up if you want to.

Even your illustration illustrates the problem: That’s the path the deactivating your account, which is not the same as deleting your account.

You can delete your Facebook account here but even once you do:

1) they just “deactivate” it for awhile, in case you change your mind

2) you may find yourself unable to access some sites that rely on Facebook connect because their web developers are too lazy to use other methods of login, such as OpenID, where you get to control what information you give them.

3) ask yourself: given Facebook’s history, do you really believe that they are deleting your information even if you delete your account?

I went in and deleted all of the information out of my account, only to find that I cannot edit/change/delete the information that I gave them about where I went to school. (If it’s possible, it’s hidden.)
