I am so glad to see this!! I recently just removed myself from Facebook, actually it's probably been close to 6 months. It feels so good.

The Tor network itself is quite secure, the traffic within it is encrypted however when the traffic leaves the Tor network and re-enters the public internet, any data being transmitted is visible to whoever runs the Tor exit node.
Which means unless you use your own encryption, any plain text data sent can be captured.
That (my friend) is EXACTLY what i am trying to say about Facebook!!

I was shocked when I saw that if you filled out the city that you live in, clicking on it brings you to a map showing where you live in that city. I never gave Facebook my address. I only typed in the city and state and on the map it had that hotair balloon thingy pointing exactly where my house is located on my street. The physical address was not shown, but if someone really wanted to track me down they could just stalk my street, watching which house I come in and out of. And they can cut out watching half the street if the balloon thingy is showing my house is on the south end of the street. Ya know? Also, when I had my account activated to be updated via SMS, my phone number was on display! So I went and I removed that info and changed my settings. I know a genious hacker could find that info anyway, but at least it's not right there in the open anymore.

Haha. I'm going to get some post-its and a sharpie and I'm going to "like" things in the real world. That is an awesome form of protest.
Social networks could be a tool, but in reality they are the first phase of our complete transformation from a complete sensorial experience in "outdoor" social space into a virtual, audio-visual-only social space.edit on 13-6-2011 by Sphota because: (no reason given)
As we've previously reported, Apple's iPhone is tracking and recording users' locations without ever giving individuals the chance to opt-out of the process. There were suggestions that turning off the device's location services feature — which is on by default and necessary in order for many apps to run properly — would put an end to the tracking, but testing reveals otherwise.

Social media is the future of marketing, business, and politics.
"I didn't do anything. I did nothing wrong. I was just there," he said.
He did, however, post several pro-riot status updates on his Facebook page, including statements like "atta boy vancity!!! show em how we do it!!!" and "vancouver needed remodeling anyway...."
Mcilvenna listed Rite Tech Construction on his profile as his employer, and the morning after the riot, he was called in by the boss and promptly fired
"I just didn't feel like what was said was appropriate, and I didn't want any affiliation towards my company with the things he said on Facebook," Reitz said.
Valdez, who has a long criminal record including convictions for aggravated assault, locked himself and the hostage in the room after police attempted to serve him with a warrant for a drug offense.
"I'm currently in a standoff … ready for whatever, I love u guyz and if I don't make it out of here alive that I'm in a better place and u were all great friends.... " he wrote at one point.It wasn't immediately clear if cops were following his updates in real time. In total, Valdez made six posts and added at least a dozen new friends during the standoff.
"Well i was lettin this girl go but these dumb bastards made an attempt to come in after i told them not to, so i popped off a couple more shots and now were startin all over again it seems ..." he wrote in a finalpost.
His Facebook friends offered him advice during the ordeal.
"Please j do the wrote thing," posted one person.
"Dude, you're an idiot," another wrote.
