This is a very good comment. Tedious Cat I thought past letters had pretty well established that showing blazingly bad judgment can indeed be a fireable offense.
Privacy issues[ edit ] Widening exposure of member information —12[ edit ] Inthe Electronic Frontier Foundation identified two personal information aggregation techniques called "connections" and "instant personalization". They demonstrated that anyone could get access to information saved to a Facebook profile, even if the information was not intended to be made public.
Facebook treats such relationships as public information, and the user's identity may be displayed on the Facebook page of the product or service. As soon as you visit the sites in the pilot program Yelp, Pandora, and Microsoft Docs the sites can access your name, your picture, your gender, your current location, your list of friends, all the Pages you have Liked—everything Facebook classifies as public information.
Even if you opt out of Instant Personalization, there's still data leakage if your friends use Instant Personalization websites—their activities can give away information about you, unless you block those applications individually. That's an illustration of how confusing they can be.
A visitor to the site copied, published and later removed the code from his web forum, claiming he had been served and threatened with legal notice by Facebook. It was not a security breach and did not compromise user data in any way.
Because the code that was released powers only Facebook user interface, it offers no useful insight into the inner workings of Facebook. The reprinting of this code violates several laws and we ask that people not distribute it further.
Information such as purchases made and games played were published in the user's news feed. An informative notice about this action appeared on the third party site and gave the user the opportunity to cancel it, and the user could also cancel it on Facebook.
Originally if no action was taken, the information was automatically published. On November 29 this was changed to require confirmation from the user before publishing each story gathered by Beacon. On December 1, Facebook's credibility in regard to the Beacon program was further tested when it was reported that The New York Times "essentially accuses" Mark Zuckerberg of lying to the paper and leaving Coca-Colawhich is reversing course on the program, a similar impression.
If a Facebook user clicks 'No, thanks' on the partner site notification, Facebook does not use the data and deletes it from its servers. Separately, before Facebook can determine whether the user is logged in, some data may be transferred from the participating site to Facebook.
In those cases, Facebook does not associate the information with any individual user account, and deletes the data as well. The first of the new features, News Feed, appears on every Facebook member's home pagedisplaying recent Facebook activities of the member's friends.
The second feature, Mini-Feed, keeps a log of similar events on each member's profile page. Some Facebook members still feel that the ability to opt out of the entire News Feed and Mini-Feed system is necessary, as evidenced by a statement from the Students Against Facebook News Feed group, which peaked at overmembers in Everyone, Friends of Friends, or Friends Only.
Users can now hide each status update from specific people as well. The "View As" option, used to show a user how privacy controls filter out what a specific given friend can see, only displays the user's timeline and gives no indication that items missing from the timeline may still be showing up in the friend's own news feed.
Cooperation with government requests[ edit ] Government and local authorities rely on Facebook and other social networks to investigate crimes and obtain evidence to help establish a crime, provide location information, establish motives, prove and disprove alibis, and reveal communications.
One article noted that "even when the government lacks reasonable suspicion of criminal activity and the user opts for the strictest privacy controls, Facebook users still cannot expect federal law to stop their 'private' content and communications from being used against them". This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, courts or other government entities".
Facebook now reports the number of requests it receives for user information from governments around the world. Facebook's Chris Kelly contradicted the claims, saying that: Facebook agreed to comply with some, but not all, of her recommendations.
Deactivating an account allows it to be restored later, while deleting it will remove the account "permanently", although some data submitted by that account "like posting to a group or sending someone a message" will remain. A Facebook representative explained to a student from the University of British Columbia that users had to clear their own accounts by manually deleting all of the content including wall posts, friends, and groups.
On Facebook, friends often leave messages of sadness, grief, or hope on the individual's page, transforming it into a public book of condolences. This particular phenomenon has been documented at a number of schools.
In such cases we restrict profile access to confirmed friends and allow friends and family to write on the user's Wall in remembrance. We may close an account if we receive a formal request from the user's next of kin or other proper legal request to do so.
Notably, on January 1,one such memorial group posted the identity of murdered Toronto teenager Stefanie Rengelwhose family had not yet given the Toronto Police Service their consent to release her name to the media, and the identities of her accused killers, in defiance of Canada 's Youth Criminal Justice Actwhich prohibits publishing the names of the under-age accused.Compare you and your lover synastry chart compatibility between zodiac signs using this personalized relationship horoscope analysis.
