The REAL problem with Facebook

Your Identity: The more you use Facebook, and make a digital footprint ‘Avatar’, are you losing some of your real world personality and identity? Is your identity becoming blurred by the digital version of you on Facebook? Do you learn more about yourself and your friends through this online medium than in the real world? Is your self-worth defined by how may Likes and comments you get? Who are you?

It’s easier to answer that last question when you’re not completely wrapped up in Facebook.

Will Facebook remain evil in 2014?

Beheadings: Facebook says it’s OK to put up images of beheadings, as long as the post includes a warning or disclaimer.

Greed: Facebook will do anything to bring in an extra buck. They continue with sponsored stories and obliterate any privacy in hopes of using your personal information to make as much advertising revenue as possible.

Privacy: They’re constantly changing their privacy policies, so that no one can keep up to know what they’re really doing with your personal data.

No Remorse: They never admit mistakes, and so of course they never apologize for any damage done to any individual, company, or society as a whole.

Stalker’s Paradise: Facebook makes it easier than ever to spy on someone without their knowledge. I always hear stories about people doing such, and Facebook does nothing to stop or slow it. Who knows how much damage has been done in the world because of creepers utilizing Facebook.

Game Requests: You don’t need me to explain this one. Albeit, not evil, but enough annoyance can certainly tip towards the side of evil.

7 reasons to dump Facebook

Don’t let Facebook consume your soul!

1. Facebook is the biggest time suck since Snood.

2. Most of your Facebook friends aren’t your actual friends. They’re just schmucks you don’t care about.

3. There are much better social media sites for photo sharing, such as Instagram. Although, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before Zuckerberg takes that over…

4. Facebook brings out the worst in folks. For example, the re-spewing of false information that political pundits dump on us, followed by angry comments. Then there’s the cyber bullying, spurring activists to go so far as to try to make it illegal. High school kids are probably committing suicide at a higher rate nowadays because of Facebook.

5. Twitter is filled with much more interested material actually worth reading.

6. The volume of ads on Facebook is getting worse and worse.

7. Dumping Facebook will simplify your life. Keep it simple, stupid.

Funny rant against Facebook

10 reasons to delete your Facebook account

1. Their Terms Of Service are horrid.  For one, they state that not only do they own your data, but that if you don’t keep it up to date and accurate, they maintain the disgression to terminate your account.

2. Facebook straight up declares a war on privacy. Now that they’ve introduced the Open Graph API, Facebook not only wants to know everything about you, and own your data, but they want to make it available to everybody. All stalkers are now on holiday.

3. Facebook is pulling a bait-and-switch. While they’re telling developers how to access your data with new APIs, they’re very quiet about explaining the implications of this to members. Facebook promotes having you hand out information you might not normally share, and then they make it fully public. As they’re in the business of monetizing your information for advertising, they essentially do their best to trick users to provide advertisers with as much information about them as possible.

4. Suckbook is a big bully. Pete Warden, an independent software developer, demonstrated how this bait-and-switch works and Facebook proceeded to sue him.

5. Even your private data is shared. All of your data is shared with applications that you install, meaning that you’re not only entrusting Facebook to keep your data secure, but also entrusting the application developers with your name, email, demographics, etc.

6. Facebook does not have adequate technical skills to be trusted. Their ‘Like’ button makes it easy for spammers to gain access to your feed and spam your social network. Also, accidently making user’s profiles completely public doesn’t help their cause either. Privacy protection is the opposite of their primary objectives.

7. Facebook makes it preposterously difficult to delete your account. In your account settings you are given the option to ‘deactivate’ your account, which as it turns out is not the same thing as deleting it. When deactivated, you can still be tagged in photos and be spammed by Facebook. Even when you delete your account, they make no promises of deleting your data.

8. Facebook doesn’t really support the Open Web. They claim that their Open Graph API is “open” but in fact it is 100% proprietary to Facebook. You cannot use this feature unless you’re logged into Facebook.

9. Its founder is unethical. Suckerberg has allegedly used Facebook user data to guess email passwords and read personal emails in order to discredit his rivals.

10. The actual ‘Product’ that Facebook provides blows chunks. Stupid farms and mafia wars. Annoying advertisements left and right, especially since Facebook when public. Compelling you to read your friend’s boring-ass posts. Uggg…

Mark Zuckerberg is a hacker

To create Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg scraped student’s profiles (names, images, etc) from many university websites to get his network started. This is only one example of his unethical behavior. Why trust an evil hacker like Zuckerberg with personal information of you, your friends, and your family? Source

Facebook wants to predict your suicide

Facebook is giving information about its users to researchers at a suicide prevention group. The data involves anything that is posted recently on Facebook by an individual who kills themselves. The goal is to use this information to one day help friends, family and social media sites to spot warning signs leading up to the suicide. So….even if some tip-offs are successfully recognized, what actions should be allowed to stop the suspected individual from taking their own life? Is this another sick example of Facebok using our personal information? Or is Facebook actually doing good for once? Learn more

Facebook Graph Search

Now is the time to close your Facebook account or at least review your privacy settings. Facebook Graph Search is their new attempt to let the world know everything about you. This “Social Search” makes it so that the content you share can appear in the search results, based on the information you have shared and the connections you have. They are just starting with four things now (People, Places, Photos and Interests), but will eventually expand to include all kinds of data people input into Facebook. More info
