Facebook Shows Its Real Face

It was a busy day in Facebookland and here is a compilation of a few of the Facebook stories that had I tweeted earlier … just in case you missed them:

Social Networking Tips That Should Keep You Out of Hot Water:

 ”You may not have considered this before you registered on Facebook, Myspace or some other social networking site, but planning what information you will share and which information you will keep to yourself is important.” (Source)

Zuckerberg Mocks Facebook Friends and Followers:

On the off-chance you haven’t already read this conversation between Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and a friend in 2004 (cautioning that Facebook really is selling your private information and that you should quit Facebook) .. here goes: (Source)

  • 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 f***s

Facebook is apparently ‘more vital than family’:

 According to a new poll social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter are more important than family to a quarter of children. (Source)

Facebook Etiquette Tips:

This video is a classic! Someone needs to show it to Zuckerberg. (Source)

Facebook Alternatives That You Could Switch To:

A list of Facebook alternatives offering better privacy protection. (Source)

Facebook Signs a Deal With Scam-Ad Trafficker:

Facebook sealed a five-year deal with FarmVille-maker Zynga. Details are secret, but we’re guessing Zynga promised to stop doing “every horrible thing in the book” to users, while Facebook promised to stop trying to take all Zynga’s money. (Source)

Facebook Stole Its Name: 

The founder went to my high school, and it’s funny to read about how much he allegedly took from others along the way. Actually the Facebook name was taken from my high school. Every year they have a book they publish with every student’s picture and address. It is a way to get to know students (it is a boarding school). For decades this has been published by the school, and it is called the Facebook. (Source)

Facebook Silences Its Critics:

Facebook disabled Kurgan Von Lichtenstein’s account, that much is clear: Though still Google’s cache (see image below), the account’s profile page is now listed as “not found” by Facebook. Von Lichtenstein said in a comment on the social news site Reddit—a comment with 313 “upvotes”—that his account was disabled within a day of posting this critical message under a four-year-old blog post from Zuckerberg. (Source)

What do I think? Where there’s smoke there’s usually fire. I’m glad I never gave Facebook my private information … and I never will either.
