People Yoy May Know

Recommended Posts

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?

I think they go on a cycle.  I have no Facebook friends (from choice) but I look at the pages of people I know and for most of the time my "people you may know" are either them or their friends.

However for a couple of months either last year or the year before it was a string of Asian / Latin American men who were clearly gay and in revealing poses on their profile pictures.  Clicking to close them made no difference as more just got added until one day I finally stopped getting them.

I thought it was Facebook punishing me for being on there with no friends and barely using it.  It hasn't happened again.

Or maybe they are just inviting people to "take a walk on the wild side" to boost traffic.

Tbh I found it pretty offensive.  I have no problem with people being gay but I don't wish to see pictures of them in their pants on my phone.

OK, how about this.

You have an Android phone. You have allowed Google to upload your contacts. FB has a business agreement with Google to share this info so that they can sell more targetted adverts.

All your contacts have been analysed and compared with the Androids contacts that each of your contracts has uploaded to Google. Somewhere in there one of your contacts has a contact that is Love Khan - probably a pseudonym used on some site.

Worse still on FB, IFB actively suggests people I may want to befriend.

Either they are proposing prospective friends randomly (idiotic) or they are running some sort of profiling/matching algorithm (creepy and in practice completely missing the mark)

I look for ways to reduce the number friends on FB but am close to ditching it completely.

      I have today off work today because the Council are upgrading the intercom thingy for the block. They will need access to my flat to replace the receiver.
      So I took the opportunity to let a surveyor from a heating company (affilliated with British Gas) come round and inspect the central heating. Two birds with one stone!
      The surveyor chap remarked how nice and clean my flat was. He said he's been to some right dumps in his job and that the worst ones seem to be the ones with cats. He also said that he visited an identical flat to mine around the corner and it was so cluttered that he had to walk sideways to get through the flat! Apparently the company would not be able towork there as it posed a Health and Safety risk. This ties in with the positive comment made by a painter and decorator who visited at the end of my kitchen and bathroom upgrade in July, describing some of the council properties he work in as  'flea pits!' 
      Even the past two private landlord representatives said I was pretty tidy so I must be doing alright.
      The central heating upgrade is going ahead on 9th November. The clean Vokera Linea 28 combi boiler with a broken case will be replaced by a more energy efficient Worcester unit. As I did with the kitchen and bathroom upgrade I'll have to leave the key with the bods and prey they don't nick anything   let them get on with it. Not that I want to be sitting in a freezing cold flat all day anyway!
      I did ask if the bathroom radiator could be replaced with a chrome towel radiator but alas no. Even if I was to pay a bit more. This company are closely audited by Norwich City Council and things need to be done in a rigid way. bah!

      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.

      This is a huge story. It should have had massive coverage. You have to ask yourselves why not.

      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.
