Wow...is this true???

I never had to do that when I signed up, though it was a while ago.

I flat out refuse to do that!

Oh, and FAILBOOK SUCKS!!!



Yes it is true! Look at all the sign in options that are not an email sign up - these are the ONLY ways one can sign into ATS now.

BTW, I really enjoy ATS and beg not to be banned for talking about this.

If you don't hear from me and I disappear from ATS, you will know Facebook has deleted my account from my earlier comment.

There has been and I promise will not be any reason for ATS to ban me. So you will know Facebook read my last post above and poof - I'm banned by Facebook from ATS.

I once had someone pop up as a recommendation on Facebook that I hadn’t communicated with for years and never had their contact info on the phone I had at the time. I found out that Facebook figured out I knew this person because the person had MY phone number in their phone.

The only way to beat it is to not use it at all.

Wow!

That level of sophistication re: surreptitiously gathering knowledge is really scary.

If Facebook can do things like this and make the connections between those data relationships, what else are they capable of?

And if Facebook can do this what are the "professional" spy agencies capable of doing?

Jesus God...

I think you were on a hiatus when I authored the following thread, "DARPA, LifeLog, Facebook, et al."

As Heff mentioned, it's all automated and the is very little that can be done to escape its ubiquitousness.

I just read it.

Wow!

Terrific stuff - thank for letting me know that I missed it last year.

You really have to pay attention around here or - poof - the world just happens without you...

That's just the tip of the iceberg.
When I was younger I took some classes at a community college. The college gave me an email account, as colleges usually do. I never used it outside of the time I was attending classes there. Well, several years later (after not having touched that school email account for those several years) - different phone, different computer with different hard drives, different email address, etc etc, I was curious about various messaging apps for the smartphone that were designed to keep you as anonymous as possible. I installed one just to check it out. It auto-populated my contacts with basically everyone I've ever emailed or received an email from - including all the people I had communicated with from that school email account. To this day I have no idea where that random messaging app pulled that information from.

Assume everything you do online is permanently saved and stored somewhere.
