Facebook now have to sort out privacy say FTC

The Federal Trade Commission said Facebook's claims about its privacy policies were unfair and deceptive and violated federal law. The Federal Trade Commission works for consumers to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices and to provide information to help spot, stop, and avoid them. The FTC have ruled that Facebook will now be required to obtain approval from users before making any changes to privacy settings or how data is shared and also stop anyone accessing a deleted account within 30 days of its deletion. This is good news. Isn't it what we said all along, opt in, not opt out!   I am not against Mark Zuckerberg or Facebook but they really need to listen to the users.  From what I've seen they aren't good listeners. In Mark Zuckerberg's blog post today he actually said... Overall, I think we have a good history of providing transparency and control over who can see your information. REALLY?  He still doesn't see that people were confused about keeping certain data or information private, or what was being shared. Then it was changed and private information suddenly [...]

Bannatyne twitter shames Suzie Warner for review now missing.

  Looking for Suzie Warners original review that caused the Bannatyne backlash? You won't find it, it was removed, as quoted by entrepreneur Duncan Bannatyne OBE today - What you will see if you do a search for the review on Swgillingham, Charlton House is a Google entry here, that is still floating around Google, but click on it and it is gone. I admit this morning I was very disappointed to read that Duncan Bannatyne (who I value reading his tweets on Twitter) had over reacted in my opinion and retweeted Suzie Warners personal details (phone number and email); causing her to receive hate mail and texts.  Why?  Not because I think she was right "lying" on the review about the hotel because she didn't get her own way but because I believe that using twitter and his influence like that is wrong, it actually makes me sad.  Mostly because of his influence, Duncan Bannatyne has 250,000 followers who will do whatever he says - some of which shared and retweeted this information.  Not that we can even comment on what she said, as its [...]

Facebook Free Makeup Scam

Another Facebook post?  Anyone would think I like Facebook. Or actually used it :) Anyway ...... I might be a bit late in posting this but its only just starting appearing in my Facebook feed, so it might help someone. Scam on Facebook We've all seen them before but we are still clicking on them or they wouldn't keep posting.  Stop it. If one of your friends sends you a link to get Free makeup, please don't click it, and certainly don't enter your Facebook details or log in with Facebook. Never click anything like this, you don't get anything for nothing as the old saying goes. Just as there are no free ipads or free 60" flat screen TV's - you didn't believe that did you? So don't believe this. There are various different links for the  free make-up scams, and they are mostly like this Just visit with varying different numbers.  The trap is that it looks like your friend has received her free makeup but in truth its just posting messages from her/his account.  Is this a Scam you ask, well it is actually nothing sinister like a [...]
