Hi Alaskan,

Could you please tell us a little on what the video is about?
The computer I'm on doesn't allow videos and cuts me off.
Thanks,

hmm, the video really sums it up, i am sorry about your computer situation, if you get the chance to view it from another computer i would suggest it.


the video touches on how big business can and may pay facebook to collect personal information on you, and your facebook habits.

that's just a nutshell explanation, i hope you get a chance to watch the vid.

I have never truly trusted Facebook , i am signed up. Although i tell my My mom , and all my friends not to post pictures of me , they do anyway. I am furious with this , because the government knows all my friends , all my family and their friends aswell . This is not right. We SHOULD NOT be posting this on the internet..
Phone numbers , preferences in men/women, favorite things to do on a sunday, daily routines, everything.
This is all to much to post over the internet. Once a photo is on FB , it is no longer yours , its the governments.
I , am not an American . But , I am still very worried about my friends and family who post these things on Facebook.
We are suppose to be safe from privacy violation , but its our own government now. The very people who used to tell us to be safe, and protect us . Are now against us ,
Really .. What has the world come to ?

Hi Alaskan,

Yes, I do know of that already!
I have nothing to hide.
It seems that facebook wont allow me to POST, but only comment.
So I just comment on 'comments' to Post stuff.

Its all about money making and it also seems that if someone posts something they don't want to be seen,it acts accordingly!

thanks for that!

Hi again,

Another thing that I did not mention.

You do know that it's not just facebook?
It's the whole Internett!

My space,Blogs,emails etc....they are all been monitored.
You would think that we are trying to hide something, when the FACT is, it's not us that should be worried, but THEM!
oh, and one's IP is also monitored!
Why do you think that TECHNOLOGY was invented?
For the better of Mankind?
I think otherwise!

First of all, your IP address doesn't belong to you.

Secondly, IP addresses were invented in order to facilitate digital communication between networked computers. No IP addressing, no Internet.

Hi Prae/

I didn't say the IP belonged to me?

I said it was being monitored!
I guess when one purchases a card to activate an Account for the internet, one also gives an address and a name etc...
Yes?
So it means that out there, someone has access to that!
So whether it belongs to you or not, is not the question.
Mobile phones are monitored, all TECHNOLOGY is monitored!
If that is not a conspiracy, then what is?
Here, they are even changing the electricity meters....for our benefit?
Yeh, right they are!
So much more is happening, that people have no clue over what that real reason is.

thanks for your post, glad you're interested in the thread, its a shame you cant view the video.

What you said about all technology being monitored has some weight to it, however i don't think you would be monitored unless you were somehow a threat or important. Why would they want to take the time to research and find out what you, an average Joe is doing.

Facebook however is something else, there is no researching involved no effort. You're the one doing all the work for them, letting them read things you don't even tell you friends (how odd is that, people are more honest on facebook then in real life). Essentially they can know just as much about you as your closest friends simply by reading something you have already made available to billions of people.

pretty great for the people trying to get this info; no effort on there part, and a huge amount of legitimate personal information in return.

edited grammar.

Old news, but I commend her for putting the video together to make something the unwashed masses can view and possibly understand.

Now someone needs to make a video which can show the consequences of putting your information out there for all to see. The information you post for all to see isn't personal information, it is called "evidence."

That video has been floating around on the net since 2006. I found a year ago on google when I was researching social networking. What I found interesting is that the "Information Awareness Office" is all tied into the NWO hence the illumati symbol right on the insignia. But it seems to all play perfectly for the endgame, collect as much information on the people deem them threat's to NWO (Red/Blue lists) then use it to track people in there daily lives.

Here's a wacky idea, don't open an account on a site you don't trust.
My wife opened a facebook account to keep in contact with old friends, didn't have to put an address, phone number, family relation details or anything other than a user name and a password, the rest is set to private and is just junk.
Stop making a big deal out of nothing, and yet your all there whining but I bet your telling your buddies on myspace or facebook about it.
What you put on the net is your own doing, on any site.
The government aren't interested in what you had for your breakfast, how many points you scored on a crappy flash game or that you have joined some dumb RIP Michael Jackson group.
Why do that when they have a census, national insurance numbers, know where you live, what job you have, who your family is and so on and so forth.
Facebook is nothing.

I agree. Personally, I believe that privacy was lost the mintue 'credit/loans' were created. I believe the minute you sign on, you've opened yourself up and although these service claim they won't give out personal information, you have no way of knowing it they did or not. Besides, who really reads all the terms of service agreements you have to check to gain access?

My brother worked in IT and he doesn't sign up to anything he doesn't have to have for work. Me, I'm an open book and no longer worry about who's watching me, cause simply put, my life sucks and is boring.

That's nothing compared to the information
I've studied about and experienced.

OBEs, Natural Remote Viewing, Technically Assisted Remote Viewing, and Artificial Intelligent Remote Neural Monitoring, and even getting a being in spirit to follow an individual for months or years.

Around Christmas time I was in my new apartment and in my new Ace Bryan Central chat room. And I felt an energy in my tiny computer room, the hairs on my arms stood up from the static, and then someone came into the chat room and said "haha look at all your beers!". I had some cans stacked up on the table next to me.

And about five weeks ago I setup my computer at a friends house.
I was posting to the Google group Alt Alien Research,
and shortly after we both saw an orange and black twisting oval shaped energy just above his sofa.

As for 'Big Brother' ... known as 'Mother' these days ...
The Internet works both ways. They watch us, we watch them. And we are bigger and many. Many races of Extraterrestrials are watching too. Google ... "Decide Whether We Should Show Up".

Wife blows cover of MI6 chief on Facebook

Link to article



8:51AM Monday Jul 06, 2009
By Kim Sengupta

Opposition parties yesterday demanded an inquiry into how personal details about the head of MI6, Sir John Sawers, were allowed to be left on Facebook.

The wife of the newly appointed "C" had posted family photographs, information about the location of their home and the whereabouts of their three children and Sir John's parents.

She had not asked for privacy protection on her account, leaving it open for millions of users in the open access "London" network to see the entries.

Just read this. Thought it would be appropriate for this thread. On a personal note, i don't trust facebook at all. I'll never open an account there, i like my privacy too much.

yeah, facebook's always been very highly invasive of privacy, and myspace is getting more and more like it. i warn my son about this constantly, but facebook is pretty much boring as hell without all of that "networking."

in the beginning myspace warned people about putting in too much private information. now they nag you for it daily. i would never in a million years put my real name on there...not that that matters all that much...they can hunt you down by IP, but I sometimes like to maintain the illusion of control anyway.

it also really creeps me out how all the major outlets and inlets now tunnel into each other and your private stuff like address books to "assist" you in making all these marvelous networking connections and consolidate and freely share information with you barely being notified or told of it until almost after the fact. myspace, facebook, google, hotmail, yahoo, gmail, flickr you name it. it might as well all just be one thing.

Interesting post. You should be a writer if you aren't already. I mean, other than on websites. Fox or one of the other news stations brought up how google search knows everything about you in some form. Maybe they're the watchers?

Never bothered with facebook or myspace, but I did join a singles chat room that seemed more like I was in some federal building somewhere. I think the government clones and operates many websites. I also noticed that on Yahoo answers. What a joke and waste of time. It's full of profilers and government trolls. They even post avatar porn and laugh about it.

yea, because there are so many "trustworthy: sites out there. like i said in my previous post, pretty much any of the commonly used tools and services all share, consolidate, and buy each other's information (all cleverly disguised in legal mumbo jumbo to protect their asse(t)s), often before you even realize it's happening. i opened a twitter and before i even did a thing i was "following" 20 other twitters magically somehow...all relating to things i had on (as near as i can figure) the hotmail account i used to sign up with. nice, huh?

as for not having anything to "hide" as someone said? that's not really the issue here at all. the issue is that many people just aren't all that savvy and aware of these pitfalls, especially our children, and have fallen into the trap already and are still merrily sharing away things that seem innocuous but when joined together with other bits and pieces of information can build an erroneous or false picture of someone. in addition, if someone were to want to set someone up, hacking them and framing them can bes a piece of cake. i wouldn't take it all so lightly.
