Before seeing your post, we had already refined the "topic feed" to max-out at six new topics per day to our wall. I think that will be much more tolerable now.

Good point BS, I have on the waiting list for a few weeks now. It really seems a unique, open sourced way for social networks to evolve. I would have thought this would be a much better choice, apart from the fact they do not have half a billion members!

I agree with Mahree... I too have removed the link from my facebook to the ATS page. At first I thought it would be great but once I saw all the negative, nasty comments directed towards ATS members, I don't want to be included in that.

It's a shame the same rules don't apply there as they do here.

I have an honest question to Springer and SO though!

You don't have to answer this of course, but how do you guys solve this legally when the Facebook TOS says that all content which are on FB belong to Facebook?

I am asking this because I'm genuinely curious and interested to know!

Could it not be some problem (hypothetically) if you're losing your legal control over content created by ATS and the members of ATS to Facebook?

And I found this interesting video in one of our old threads about FB and it was posted by the member: Animal - so if I have your permission? I would like to post it again!

It has some good information which most of us now already know - but they have compiled it in a good way in this video.

For those who are interested:

Did you actually read the FB TOS?

Sharing Your Content and Information

You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:
1.For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos ("IP content"), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook ("IP License"). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.

Yeah I'm so sorry man! lol!

I screwed up!

I actaually read a snip from their old TOS and some older article when I wrote this question to you guys!

And I was away from the computer for the rest of the day yesterday, and when I finally found out it was from the old FB TOS, today - it was to late to make any edit to my question.

So just forget about it!

I was suddenly in a hurry after I posted, but I should have checked their current TOS before I posted the question. I'm such an idiot!

And today I read some more blogs & articles and found out about my mistake - I realised that my information when I posted was from the old TOS and was over one year old!

I realised my mistake that this was from the old TOS when I read this:

“Facebook’s new Terms of Service: ‘We Can Do Anything We Want With Your Content. Forever,’ ” it read. “Facebook’s terms of service used to say that when you closed an account on their network, any rights they claimed to the original content you uploaded would expire. Not anymore. Now, anything you upload to Facebook can be used by Facebook in any way they deem fit, forever, no matter what you do later.”

But Zuckerberg made a bold move, aligned with Facebook’s corporate image: He turned the site into a democracy. He decided to reinstate the former TOS, then released a new version a week later that took broad latitude to use our content while we were on the site but fell short of claiming ownership, and that Facebook revoked its rights to our content when we delete our accounts.

sorry to have bothered you!

So what was that you were saying about having no button directly linking ATS to facebook? ITS ON THE FRONT PAGE NOW!!! You crack me up with your story telling. One minute you oppose it and the next minute your its biggest supporter. Your nothing but a PAID CEO who cares about your bottom line. ATS should now be called C.I.A. operation, SPINELESS.

Thats funny, I failed to see the permission for them to data mine you PC in that TOS. Get real, we see right though your fat wallets.

There is no button that leads *directly* to Facebook, as promised. The button you see is a referrer-stripping function that removes ATS-specific referral data before sending the user to FB.

ATS should now be called C.I.A. operation, SPINELESS.

Perhaps a little effort getting your facts straight will avoid future embarrassment.

Interesting how the new and flashy ATS layout coincides with the new move to join the FB fad. Perhaps ATS functionality will change every time FB changes something.

This new ATS is far to bubbly for me. I prefer the grungy old industrial ATS layout. Just call me a retro grouch.

Just this week, Fort Bragg sent out a request asking soldiers and their families to be mindful of what they put on social media sites. Certain confidential information could aid terrorists, military officials said. One out of every 14 people in the world now has a Facebook account, according to The New Yorker,

There are people out there who want to use our information for nefarious reasons. For instance, three New England men were recently charged with breaking into dozens of homes after using Facebook posts to find out when the residents of those homes were going to be away. The Jacksonville Daily News recently reported that police think a change in a woman's Facebook relationship status may have been what led a former flame to kill her.

as if this isn't another wake up call

People just have to think before publishing all their lives on Facebook (or any other site).

You don't put a sign on your home saying "I went out to watch a movie", so why post it on the Internet?

In just slightly more than two months, our Facebook fan page is getting very close to 10,000 fans.

I think this shows that once people discover ATS, they're interested in what our members have to say.

Hi all.

I've just joined FB today for the sole purpose of creating a group, but I'm having a little trouble. First of all, can I request some friends from here? My PROFILE, because I think the lack of friends is preventing me from creating a group. I know how to, but it won't allow me to select any friends to add to it, therefore I can't create one.

Any help, advice or the acquaintance of like mind people would be greatly appreciated.

Not meaning to be rude, but I wish whoever Mods the Facebook page would sort out the racist/Nazi rants on there, yet again today there is more on there, its just awful.

I like checking out the posts on there, because this forum doesnt load up on my mobile properly, so it gives me a quick run through of certain topics.

I was wondering who chooses which threads to highlight for FaceBook. It seems to me some of the most ridiculous stuff is posted to FaceBook and likely could give ATS a bad look. A few days ago for instance someone declared the United States was going to be under attack that evening by nuclear weapons and everyone should prepare and go into hiding. The thread must have been deleted because I only found a 404 but you get my drift here.

There are multiple excellent threads to look through here, I just don't understand why some of the rubbish type threads appear on my FaceBook news feed from day to day. But. . . that is just my opinon, just thought I'd post my thoughts, it is an great idea sharing this site and it's open ideologies with FaceBook.
