Re: Friend or foe of Facebook?

I think even less of it now. It is potentially dangerous. Recently another hot dogger had some nut case get on to him because his cart is "competition" for this nut cases Brix-&-Mortar restaurant (also sells hot dogs a few miles away). Nut case posts a nasty message on the doggers facebook page. Then nut case shows up and starts harassing doggers brother and then starts in on the customers before leaving. THREE DAYS LATER.... Health Dept shows up looks around and finally tells the dogger he is in violation of some ordinances (he had table, chairs and canopy sitting beside his cart for customers to sit at). Makes some comments about the doggers facebook page and then shuts him down for being in violation (sink didn't have the wing type of handles like in a doctors office... accepted food service practice is you turn them off with a paper towel)). All this was done verbally which isn't legal. But they had to shut down immediately. The dogger has "unpublished" his facebook page. This was in WI. WI Health Dept (like a lot of other places) do not like food carts and would like to get rid of them.

Bumping is an option (for your own topics only) that appears near the very bottom of the web page that lets you put older topics up at the top so people (especially newcomers) can see and respond to it. I use it on polls occasionally to get more input. Also useful for when nobody answers your topic inquiry and it disappears from the first page of the forum index.

Lorna - that's too bad about your friend in Wisconsin. Another reason to "unfriend" the whole concept (Facebook, that is, not hotdog carts).

Re: Friend or foe of Facebook?

I dislike it first because of privacy issues. Not that it isn't hard to track down people on the internet without using Facebook. The last I knew, Facebook asks for so much personal information at sign-up that you would think you were applying for a mortgage, not asking to post/exchange information. And I believe that they are more than willing to share whatever you tell them with anyone who asks.

But what would raise my opinion from "ignore" or "dislike" to "hate" is what Facebook widgets on websites do to browsers. I have found in both Internet Explorer and Firefox that on occasion, the "Back" navigation button does not work. When I pull up a history list of the websites recently visited, the previous pages are the current page with a Facebook tag on them. I have to click further down on the history in order to successfully navigate "back." If I only keep clicking "back," I wind up in an endless loop on the current web page, probably caused by the presence of a "Like" button.

I do not get the focus on counting Facebook "likes" or SiteMeter hits. If I have information to put out, there it is, take it or leave it.

Some jurisdictions consider bringing charges of "False Personation" if they are looking for a reason to get you, and find out you used a fictitious name or other information when signing up. And the Facebook brass have publicly requested laws be passed requiring positive personal identification of anyone using any internet service (like theirs).

And if the information you do use happens to match a real person other than yourself, the "can't take a joke" folks have been known to make "Identity Theft" arrests on occasion. It ain't worth the risk to fool around anymore, at least not to me.

Re: Friend or foe of Facebook?

Back when the Internet was becoming popular, I observed with fascination this part of world history unfold, when most every major entity's name one after another began sporting "www.whatever.com/org/gov/edu/etc." I tend to think of very old people as living history books who have lots of fun stuff to tell about days long before me. If there's anything for me to look forward to about getting old, that's a major one.

Big difference (IMO) between having to use a regular Web page to access company information or communicate with someone vs. Facebook, is that one can access the Web by way of hundreds of internet service providers (AOL, Cox, CenturyLink, etc.) over several platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux...even smartphones). Facebook is...well, Facebook. So it bugs me when the only way to access special offers, contests, yada yada, is by way of Facebook!!

FB reminds me of the Borg from Star Trek: "Resistance is futile...you will be assimilated." At least the Borg is fictitious.

Re: Friend or foe of Facebook?

I have facebook opened up on my smart phone as I'm typing this on the laptop...

I use FB a lot... Most people in my circle are on it and we communicate and share using it... Never played any of the games and don't sign up for any special offers...

Most of the events, get-togethers and birthday parties(children and adults) are all organized on FB... I haven't been to a birthday party in over a year that wasn't posted on FB...


As far as "bump" goes, on most forums you reply to your for sale thread with "bump" to get it back to the top...
