Did User’s Private Messages Really Go on Their Timeline?

I have been hearing the buzz about Facebook user’s private messages from the years 2007-2009 being exposed on their timeline. Is this all true? Facebook Users are still coming forward saying their messages have been exposed. Facebook is still standing by their claims that no messages have been leaked. I thought I would share the inside story.

Fred Wolens, of Facebook Communications, told Mashable, “Moreover, it would be incredibly difficult from a technical perspective for this even to be possible because of the systems’ architecture with two separate systems running on two separate languages.” Many have claimed their private messages have been leaked but Facebook believes this is due to new Timeline Users that are confusing older posts with private messages. According to Facebook any post that allows you to “like” or “comment” on is not considered private. Wollens closed his conversation with, “We’re happy to review reports, but we have finished our internal investigation and are satisfied that no private messages have been leaked”

Rick Rolled – SPAM at it’s best

I heard the song “Never Gonna Give You Up” the other day and the memories just flooded in…

The biggest wave came in 2008 on April Fools’ Day where thousands of YouTube’s front page videos had the clasic bait and switch to the legendary Rick Astley that will make this writer smile forever. This is the kind of SPAM that is awesome and the reason for viral content and good meme’s online. From Scientology protest to sporting events all the way to the White House Twitter feed Rick Rolling is probably that most popular prank on the internet… or at least the most beloved.

The cool thing about the Rick Roll SPAM is that it made it off the web and into real life, that, and no one can really ever be too mad about a good ole Rick Roll, in fact I find it a delight.

Whoever thought of this idea is amazing and I salute you. Sha-wing. 

Weight Loss SPAM

I do not consider myself an over weight guy, and I don’t know how I got on the list for all this diet pill SPAM (maybe penis enlarger but that is a different story, ha). But seriously everyday I get e-mails promises great weight loss results I wouldn’t even need if they really did work. I could probably gain ten pounds rather than lose them, so why am I getting all these e-mails.

No I am not putting those weird weight loss chemicals in my drinks let alone my body. No I would not like a membership to a gym. And no I do not want a bunch of frozen low calorie TV dinners, deserts, and snacks. That crap can all go back to the people who sent it to me. They’re fat sacks that are just trying to make themselves feel better by conning others. I have had enough. Go sell your fat farm products to some other schmuck.

Slim chews? Pft, yeah right.

SPAM – Are We Asking For It?

This whole website is dedicated to complaining about how much  of a pain in the ass SPAM can be. Pop ups, hacked profiles, hidden links, and stuffed inboxes can get old really quick. I doubt there is anyone out there that would state that they love internet SPAM and its efforts. Even the people you create SPAM probably get bothered by it while surfing the web like anyone else. I still think the number one cause of computer viruses is internet SPAM but for real occurrences that severe are uncommon for the most part if you use common sense online the web.

You should know that filling out this forum and that contest will lead the SPAM directly towards you like blood to a shark fight. Yes, the side bar ads can be appealing and look like the easiest decision of your life but they’re made that way. It isn’t that hard to avoid the tell tale signs of internet SPAM.

Be safe surfers.

Byproduct SPAM

I’m sick of buying this online and then boom SPAM every day from the people I just gave money to. I mean I just bought something leave me alone already. I buy an amp and subwoofer on Amazon and suddenly Amazon thinks I need eight more and maybe $15 off will convince me to buy them. I buy a hat from Zummiez and now I need sweatshirt discounts and Volcom promotions. If I’m going to buy anything it’s because I need it or I want that product, not because of some e-mail ad.

My mother buy a onesy  for her niece a couple of years ago and we’re still getting baby formula coupons in the junk mail. Companies need to put their time and energy in to their products and costumer service not SPAM mail. There should be more companies like smi4motion. I bought a ball bearing slide from them the other day and they asked me if I’d like to be put on their e-mail list. To which I replied no, but at least they had the courtesy to ask before filling my inbox with SPAM.

Men’s Rings – Lookout For Jewelry Scams

“Everyone is growing up so fast!” My mother says almost sobbing when I told her about yet another wedding I have to attend next month.

All my friends seem to be getting their shit together and settling down. As more and more of my friends announce their wedding dates I get having more and more chats about wedding jewelry. All the ladies seem to know exactly what they want and where to find it but the men on the other hand seem to be very much in the dark.

After talking my friend Ali I am a little weary about picking out jewelry on my own especially online. She is  huge online shopper just like me and when she started shopping for her husbands wedding band she start online by force of habit and convenience. She said when looking for mens rings the key is to do your research online first. She told me that after she started looking around she started getting many SPAM e-mail offering very attractive deals but that they were all scams.

One website I found really helpful was Titanium-Jewelry.com and Belloria.com Blog

Be safe shoppers!

Careful Where You Submit Your E-mail

SPAM seems to come from everywhere, and just like the hay-days of telemarketing your information is key to luring you in. Except the internet is a very grey world, there is no do not e-mail list or caller ID for SPAM and SPAMers use that to their advantage. Most common SPAM is noticed in your inbox, but how did it get there?

SPAM on websites often asks for information in exchange for something you might be interested in, but 99% don’t end up receiving; the pop ads that offer a free iPad by enter your name, e-mail, and zip code. Also there is SPAM forms attached to things you participate in online. When I was filling out job applications on sites like Career Builder I was surprised but the amount of external SPAM forums I was encourage to fill out between all my profile data entry. After every saved page I got a forum from with online school, or that newsletter, things I do not want.

Best advice I can give to avoid this is check the page carefully. Sometimes they hide a skip or an exit window button to fool you into filling the forum out. Otherwise you can do what I do and make a separate e-mail address for sign up for things.

Blinky Spam

SPAM used to be an internet nightmare. Filling your screen, passing off viruses, and crashing your computer. Nothing was worst and it seemed every site was buying into. Now a days SPAM is often over looked by natural habit. We have trained ourselves not to acknowledge it, not to be bothered. Pop up blocks are the first line of defense, then SPAM folders and anti-virus soft wear, finally we just choose not to look to the side bars of webpages.

Yet SPAM is still out there, otherwise there would be no reason for this blog right? But why? Well to get websites more clicks and online traffic to sites I guess. But SPAMers are doing a lot more now to grab your attention. Some are coding SPAM to move passed the pop up blockers. Some have fabulous prizes such as free iPads and island get aways. The worst of all are the blinky SPAM. Ever seen one? It’s a worthless ad like any other SPAM but flashes and blinks bright usually surprising the user into clicking on the ad.

 

Looking for a GPS Navigation App for iPhone

I recently switch from an Android powered My Touch 3G to Apple’s iPhone and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a switch I’ve wanted to make for some time now but couldn’t because I’m still under contract with T-moblie who doesn’t not support the iPhone. Everything about the ISO system running on the iPhone is pretty similar to the Android platform but seems to much much sleeker and user friendly.

There are some things about the my old Android phone that I miss however. Like the widgets on the home screens for one. Apple was the first to introduce widgets on their dashboard but never utilized the idea on ISO and I don’t understand why. I also miss the GPS on my Android. Although the iPhone’s mapping is powered but Google maps, it is no faster than the Android’s and it does not offer turn by turn navigation or automatic rerouting. I know there are navigation apps out there on the iTunes store but I can’t seem to find a free one that isn’t covered with SPAMy ads.

Anyone out there know of a good free GPS navigation app for iPhone?

 

 

The Origin’s of Internet SPAM

This whole blog is about SPAM on the internet. Everyone experiences it and no body likes it, well maybe the jerks who make it. But what really is internet SPAM and where did it come from?
Well, according to Wikipedia internet SPAM got it’s name from a Monty Python sketch in which Spam is included in almost every dish. SPAMing is a pretty logical practice in advertisement, it’s always going to be easier to reach a wide audience by sending the same message out to multiple people rather than an individual message for each, much like the days of snail mail junk mail. But today it is much more cost effective (and greener I guess) to send the message online. No need for paper or printing costs, no postage, and no operating costs beyond the management of their mailing lists. Also it is very difficult to hold senders accountable for their mass mailings so it is no wonder our inboxes are stuffed.
Some of the most well know internet SPAM:

  • instant messaging spam
  • Usenet newsgroup spam
  • Web search engine spam
  • spam in blogs
  • wiki spam
  • online classified ads spam
  • mobile phone messaging spam
  • Internet forum spam
  • junk fax transmissions
  • social networking spam
  • television advertising
  • file sharing network spam.
