Just what I teach, the point to remember is stuff u put on the net is there forever.
Please be careful about what u post on farcebook.
Facial recognition, farcebook is doing it already. If, in 20 yrs time your fighting against skynet then you may not want the drones to recognise you as a terrorist.
Yes, this is a sci fi nightmare but the technology is here today, in a beta form.
Just be aware that a long term plan may take 20 yrs to impliment, it may well not be recognised by most people who are happy in little cells. If you think what Im saying is rubbish then that's cool, not my problem.
Remember that Prez Barry has already stated that the US controls all communication and, as seen by the megadownload farce, the US WILL tell it's puppets what to do to enable that control.
Re the off topic posts, I can't wait to see what happens first, a 'terror' attack on the olympics or a false flag against a US warship in the Gulf.
Much cheaper for the Enterprise to be attacked by Syria or Iran than it would be to decommission it.
The biggest threat to the Olympics, given that we're going to have about 20000+ soliders on the ground and air defence batteries mounted on nearby buildings, is that there is another Jean Charles de Menezes.
Though only available to users in New Zealand, friends of Kiwis have said the new feature is already having an effect.
Auckland resident Simon Matthews told us, “I thought that there’d been a mass poisoning that had dropped the nation’s IQ by fifty points, but it seems that they’ve merely let simpletons pay to highlight their posts.”
“It feels a bit like charging mental patients a small fee to smear their own shit on the walls of the asylum – I can’t say I’m in favour of it.”
An investigation by the BBC has found that fake Facebook profiles are significantly less likely to fill your news feed with tedious updates and thinly-veiled calls for attention. Cellan-Jones showed his own news feed highlighting how it was genuine people who were making Facebook an awful place to hang out.
You're like my friend. He sits around all day spouting off conspiracies.
It's like this. The all enveloping evil empire (You know build-a burger Illuminazi types) can't really exist in that manner. The simple short-sightedness of these alleged power families and government agencies would be self defeating in nature.
Anyways getting back to facebook...
You're citing Newsthump as a source? Even though it's a self confessed Spoof news and Satire site, it's clearly a joke, the people and quotes are made up and it's clearly not serious? For example, next you'll be all offended about:
You have hit a new low Racer, trying to prove your bullshit with 'stories' from a spoof site, as if we're ****ing idiots and wouldn't notice. I don't actually need to say anything more, either you're that thick that you thought this site was legit news, or you knew it and don't care, in your acid riddled brain BBC news lie, but spoof sites tell the truth. Next you'll be quoting The Onion to show how the zionists run the world.
I think it's a spin piece put up by Facebook or a major investor as a way to scare people into getting accounts so it will increase the value of its stock shares.
Either that or people really have gotten that stupid.
The next thing is the ability to forcast crime and criminals before it happens. ( That would make a good book or movie ) Crazy theory or are the DHS already trialling one ?
"An internal U.S. Department of Homeland Security document indicates that a controversial program designed to predict whether a person will commit a crime is already being tested on some members of the public voluntarily, CNET has learned.
If this sounds a bit like the Tom Cruise movie called “Minority Report,” or the CBS drama “Person of Interest,” it is. But where “Minority Report” author Philip K. Dick enlisted psychics to predict crimes, DHS is betting on algorithms: it’s building a “prototype screening facility” that it hopes will use factors such as ethnicity, gender, breathing, and heart rate to “detect cues indicative of mal-intent.”
The latest developments, which reveal efforts to “collect, process, or retain information on” members of “the public,” came to light through an internal DHS document obtained under open-government laws by the Electronic Privacy Information Center. DHS calls its “pre-crime” system Future Attribute Screening Technology, or FAST." http://thepowersthatbeat.blogs ... y-moves-forward-with.html
I used to hate Racer X's threads, but now I'm starting to love them. They're like my guilty secret. I guess the equivalent of watching some kind of disastrous reality TV show. I'm not going to click his links though, I don't want some crazy conspiracy website to be able to track me
The definition of a psychopath includes the term "anti-social". So yes, of course a lot of killers and other nutjobs won't have social network profiles. At least that much is true.
So is it a contradiction that the Big Scary Government Watchdog Evil Big Brother Corporation is tracking our profiles? Because if the people they want don't have profiles then it's not going to help them, is it? But as someone already mentioned, wouldn't that be the perfect cover?
So potential terrorists don't have Facebook profiles because they're anti-social. But potential terrorists DO have Facebook profiles to cover up their terrorist activities. It's so confusing! It's almost as if the world is out to get me. Or possibly you.
If only the vast majority of the population was normal. If only the vast majority of companies have no interest in my Foursquare check-ins and complaints about work and only wanted my demographic for advertising purposes. If only they just wanted to make money. Wouldn't life be so much easier?
The more people you put your advert in front of, the more chance of someone clicking it. As a FB user I've "liked" something I already liked, but hadn't thought about until that point. Now their advertising appears in my feed.
And Albany Down (http://www.facebook.com/albanydown) has used it from the other side too. Our reach and activity increase a lot any time we invest in the targeted marketing options on there. And more people seeing you means a higher possibility of getting them to hang around.
That's how marketing works. You lay out a fee at the start with the hope of getting something more back long term.
From a commerce perspective I've found Facebook marketing not to be very effective, it struggles to reach ROI targets. Although it has some token use Facebook is pretty much a con for SME marketeers.
As more marketeers grow dissollusioned with returns from Facebook campaigns I can see the amount of advertising increasing or the introduction of more advertorials by Facebook Inc and that could change the nature of the platform itself.
