Big (Quite Possibly Less Than Desirable) Changes Coming to Facebook?

Filed under: Networking, Organizing, Technology — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:07 PM (16:07)

Recently, I saw an article highlighting some possible changes that could be coming to Facebook —

The Admin ZoneUpcoming Facebook Changes by Lisa

H/T the Armed Equality Facebook page

Basically, where Facebook Groups are concerned, the Facebook admins and the robots that they task with doing most of the real work of determining whether or not everyone is playing nice are going to be placing a lot more responsibility onto group owners and admins to make sure that everyone plays nice.

Alternatives do exist. (My pages on these sites are linked to below.)

Fooling Google and Facebook a Bit

Filed under: Humor, Preparedness, Self-Defense, Technology — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 7:34 PM (19:34)

After installing Linux Mint 17.2 on my Asus K54L laptop, I logged into Google, and got the following alert message at my Gmail account:

2015-11-15-182044-ss-gmail-google-login

Then I logged into Facebook, and received this alert message:

2015-11-15-18-19-08-ss-gmail-fb-login

Here’s the funny thing — I logged into both accounts using Mozilla Firefox.

So why am I getting messages saying that I used Safari on Mac OS X?

For the record, I haven’t touched anything Apple or Mac since April, 1994, when I had to use a Leatherman multi-tool to pull my floppy disk out of the drive slot when the “Eject” command (⌘-E) didn’t work after repeated tries.

After installing Linux Mint on the laptop, I launched Firefox, and installed the following add-ons to Firefox —

The costs of this?

  1. Linux Mint 17.216.99 + tax (It was on the live DVD glued to the front cover of Linux Format magazine – part of the price tag is for the DVD. Another part of the price tag is that it’s printed in the UK and shipped across the Atlantic every month.)
  2. A few minutes of time, a few watts of electricity to spin that live DVD in the drive.
  3. A few mouse clicks here and there . . .

. . . and to paraphrase the MasterCard advertising copy, the upside — giving a virtual single-digit salute to two of the biggest privacy invaders on the planet — PRICELESS.

People tell me that I give off a lot of negative energy. That’s good; it means I’ll be able to afford my wormhole.
