was it interesting?
Stop being so paranoid and live life:)
All Facebook has access to is my name, email, the school I went to, where I used to work, a list of bands I like, that I only really read Marvel comics and Asterix books and don`t seem to have any real interests bar playing videogames. The CIA can`t do a whole heap with that info.
Gmail actually saves a record of every single email message sent or received and can potentially give that info to other sources if needed to. Its like that argument about CCTV cameras. Sure, they infringe on civil liberties somewhat but as long as you`re not doing anything wrong you should have nothing to worry about right?
If I knew someone in the CIA and asked you a question about your sexual adventures but since I never said I wouldn`t take hte information to anyone else, does that mean I`m going to tell that person, no. Just relax.
In French, we have a saying that goes "parlez-en en bien ou parlez-en en mal, mais parlez-en."
Speak good about it or speak bad, but talk about it. People are too curious not to try it.
"INTERNET: SERIOUS BUSINESS"
I always enjoy a good laugh at people that get paranoid over things like this. What the heck are you so afraid of? Just about anything you say about yourself (especially with stuff like this) is stuff that anyone could find out pretty quickly, pretty easily. And why would you care? Do you live in some bunker somewhere, with your existence hidden from all mankind? What information about yourself could you possibly be so scared of people knowing? Chill out, guys. You don`t want it known, you just keep it to yourself. DONE~
Also, when the whole last minute of the video simply said `replay,` did anyone else expect something scary to pop up like in that maze game? In YouTube, you can just replay once it`s finished anyway.
I love the pictures people put up of themselves doing illegal or immoral things. Good first impression for cops and future employers. Everyone does it, sure, but leave the evidence where it can`t be seen by everyone. Duh.
And yeah like everyone else I got really bored over this video.
Anyone that calls someone a n00b is a complete idiot and deserves shooting.
Same goes for people who are paranoid by silly little videos like this. If you don`t want a facebook account, don`t have one. No-one`s forcing you to. Personally, I can talk to my friends on MSN and see no need to have a myspace/facebook account. But whatever floats your boat... Whatever pickles your onion... and other such terrible clichés.
Wasn`t it SOOOO much better when facebook was for college students only?
I HIGHLY DOUBT that the person that made this video posted it on this website. I mean it is possible but still. Anyway, like some other people said. pretty much EVERY website is the same way.
and then with the patriot act now that clearly goes against whats said in the declaration of independence, cops can just walk into any house without a warrant.
so our business is everyone elses business now.and thats a damn shame.
but if the government have my details, so what? what good is it to them? what do i do thats so different to what everyone one else does? hmm. x
This is ridiculous.
I have a Facebook and I use it in an intelligent way. If they send that information to companies who will make profit from it, then fine. The video was interesting in its warning, but it would be wrong to think Facebook is the only website to do that.
I think it`s a little far-reaching, but there`s some truth to it. Facebook isn`t the only one out there, though- I am sure of it. Think about the other websites that are similar and how they might be used...
I think people just need to be made aware of the risk of putting personal info on the internet- if they, after being informed of the risk, are still stupid enough to put their address on facebook, then that`s not really anyone else`s fault, is it?
Does that mean they collect my porn records?
Simpler answer: If you`re too dumb to censor yourself, don`t have a facebook
Simplest answer: Live in a hut in the woods like the unabomber.
As for people (like the authors of this video) who stay away from Facebook and think they`re safe from private companies and the CIA, I just have this to say: Do you have a bank account and credit card? Bad news folks, after 9/11, all those agencies make that info available to the government, and the patriot act allows any member of the executive branch to request records from any private corporation or public institution.
Your privacy was sold out in 2001. Facebook merely has all the information any investigator could find out in 48 hours of talking to a handful of your friends & acquaintances.
If you don`t want your information known then stop posting your life on the internet.
Screw that, I`m closing my facebook right now.
Neat video. Nice to see people falling for a data-mining website trap and having any information they put on their taken and sold.
Comment of the year, had me in stiches for minutes.... top call
As for `why` people would use social-networking sites, I read a theory in The Globe & Mail a few days ago about how it stems from a very primal and basic need: The need for others to acknowledge you. Essentially, to be told that you exist.
Anyway, I think Facebook has some really great apps, although it can also be as annoying as hell sometimes... By the way, I just couldn`t resist pointing out that "Do you have a Facebook?" is just so ungrammatical! Argh! It should be "Do you have a Facebook account?"
Facebook is a social networking tool. If it is being used exclusively for data mining, not only would we have known about it by now, but it probably would have become glaringly clear within moments seeing as the governments ability to keep anything covert is akin to the ability of a two liter bottle of nitroglycerin to complete a roller coaster ride.
to snoopdawg: is .5% a lot to you?
On a more serious note, Facebook is really milking everything it can milk from the people. I`m staying away from it...
i hate facebook as much as the next sensible person, but really, what the hell is this poo >.>
Me. Ha ha ha.
PS: If you called this video "boring," you are stupid. Good day.
Think about the number of personal details and compromising pictures that most people put on that website. An employer could so easily access it and refuse you point blank for a job
No friends - no facebook - no worries :-)
Facebook takes advantage of human`s unchangable tendency to socialize and gain popular, even if they are false.
i srsly predict a 0.5% impact on facebook traffic from this ad. who paid for this, myspace?
I`m half making that up on facts that I only partially understood.
If I `m wrong I was joking, if I`m right I absolutely meant to be.
