Yeahna So, according to Facebook, I am a Francophile diplomatic unionist with kids who enjoys chatting to single women online while listening to Sarah Brightman. The French thing comes from being Francophone, so that much I have told Facebook. However, does it really know that I have friends in the diplomatic corps and unions, or that I like Phantom (though it’s not really at top of the list), or are these just random?
The continuing decline of Facebook Yet another obvious fake on Facebook. You can bet all the “friends” linked to this are fake, too. Since I see these every day, and I’m hardly a major user, then how many others are there? Facebook’s claims of over a milliard users seem more and more dubious by the day.
Yan’s campaign on the other hand is unusual. Unusual in that he declared early, has a very good website, has released a manifesto months out from the election, is (frequently) using almost every social media medium, producing videos, and is actively campaigning, talking to people … If every candidate for local government followed this playbook, regardless of politics, I have no doubt we’d have better people being elected and more people voting.
The beginning of the end of Facebook We’re not the only company to receive this offer for fake Facebook likes. There is no point to these, since these fake accounts are incapable of spreading your word further—since they are not real. I guess this explains why, over the last few months, we’ve been deleting fake Facebook users. The spammers were creating them to exploit.
Facebook doesn’t want to help you promote an event Why does Facebook bother with events when (from top to bottom) (a) you can’t share it with your friends; (b) you can’t post about it on your wall; (c) you can’t prove to your friend that you can’t post about it on your wall; and (d) you can’t tell your friends privately about it?
The Russian status update Am I making sense here? My Mum learned Russian so I am really hoping some of that rubbed off. Google Translate gave me a lot of nonsense. Thanks to my friend Sergei for his post!
