  1. Twitter starts closing dormant accounts and gets a "backlash" (seems to be one person) where one account is someone who has died. So now they're going to start hosting dead people's accounts which it turns out Facebook already does. How far do they intend taking this? In thirty years they could find out that dead users outnumber live ones; will they then keep them rolling like some massive virtual graveyard? What would be the point and, more pertinently for them, where is the profit?
  2. How on Earth does taking a copious amount of class A drugs in a bathroom cause the floor/ceiling to collapse? Anyhow, I'd love to see the insurance claim details for this. I wonder for how long the young party host is grounded for?
  3. This story was quietly released over the Bank holiday weekend and has got next to no mainstream UK Press coverage - mainly because it goes against the apparent agenda and highlights what naive, gullible fools lots of UK media folk are. I think this is pretty major. It is basically Facebook admitting, by closing down some 600 plus pages, groups and accounts, that a foreign power, in this case Iran, has been using social media to influence opininion on several matters key to the unity and security of the UK - namely BREXIT, Scottish Independence and with positive media for one Jeremy Corbyn. Israel, and UK opinion of Israel, is also mentioned but you have to wonder whether this also includes the big rise of anti-semitism on UK social media. Not a dicky bird from the UK mainstream media about this. If it had been, for example, pro-Trump stuff then you can imagine the hysteria. But this is OUR country and this suggests that a foreign power, Iran, was interfering in our internal politics. So why no mainstream coverage? Why aren't the likes of the So-Called BBC, Sky News, etc, screaming hell about this? Why aren't our politicians? Are any of them even aware that this happened? Well, our mainstream media seems to focus on breaking up the UK as a good thing. It is also, IMPO, increasingly pro muslim and anti-Israel/Jewish people. No need to say anything about BREXIT. Then there is Corbyn. Does this Facebook story simply highlight something much bigger going on in the UK with how public opinion is shaped and presented? I suspect it does. Look at the almost hourly row in the US about possible Russian use of social media to influence the last US election. Then consider how this story about the UK got pushed out on a wet bank holiday weekend, was given virtually no coverage and then was buried. Facebook Shuts Down Iran-Linked Pages Attacking Brexit and Israel, Backing Corbyn and Scottish Separatists This is a huge story. It should have had massive coverage. You have to ask yourselves why not.
  4. I have a Facebook account with the grand total of 30 friends. I keep getting very rude ‘people you may know’ suggestions from people with either Asian type names or in Arabic. I can’t get rid of them. I’ve reported some, removed others and they keep coming, no pun intended. Ive just looked again and ther is someone called Love Khan who apparently I may know. It’s a picture of a man with a giant todger. I definitely don’t know him. Any ideas?
  5. Its your data but we will do with it whatever the fuck we like because twatface can't look after it. Controversial firm Cambridge Analytics has been issued with an emergency data seizure order following a TV expose about its unethical use of user data. Senior executives have been caught on camera boasting about the use of dark methods, including hiring prostitutes to entrap individuals, generating fake news and sub-contracting with ex-spies to entrap individuals. This comes on top of revelations that it had secretly grabbed the personal details of over 50 million Facebook users and used the data to sell voter targeting services. More and more reasons to fuck facebook off.
  6. I had a meeting with some social media marketers last year. During the meeting they told me that it's possible to target people based on the private conversations they have. I asked if they meant that facebook scan your messages (ie messenger/whatsapp) looking for keywords to present relevant ads to the user - they said yes and actual voice conversations. I dismissed it, thinking "bullshit" - they were young nerdy types and probably watched the matrix a few too many times. Last week my wife met up with her friend at a gym club - they were talking about where to start swimming club for our youngest. Her friend suggested that she should try a pool called Cofton but she didn't know the timetable. In her friends facebook feed that night was an advert for Cofton swimming pool, showing the timetable. I asked if either had mentioned Cofton in whatsapp/messenger or if they had googled it (as this would be more likely than some kind of weird evesdropping voice to text shitbot) but they hadn't. In another incident (which shows that social media companies do actually trawl through your messages) my sis in law was presented with ad advert for a pendant engraved with the letters "DB" which is how she refers to her daughter when messaging by wife on social media.
  7. Is Chris Morris now actually having his spoof policies enacted? Dear eSafety, I am very concerned that their may be nude photographs of myself circulating on the interent. Yours faithfully, Worried of Woolamaloo. Dear Worried of Woolamaloo, Worry no more. Simply take a nude photograph of yourself and send it to us and then you can sleep safely knowing that nobody will be looking at nude photographs of you. Except us of course who will all be crowding round the screen to have a good laugh. Yours sincerely, eSafety.
  8. So a bloke is apparently on the run in Cleveland, Ohio, after claiming to have killed 15 people today. He streamed at least one murder live on FB apparently. Not islamist - apparently he said that he lost a load of money due to gambling. Try and show a nipple on FB and they will try to bn you if it ain't pixelated. But live streaming of murder - feck!
