More Facebook Fuckery

Via various people...

"As of a few days ago, there is a new privacy setting called "Instant Personalization" that shares data with non-facebook websites and it is automatically set to "Allow." (like every other fucked up, invasive "feature" on farcebook.)

Go to 'Account' > 'Privacy Settings' > 'Applications and Websites'
Find "Instant Personalization" (new, at the bottom) and click "Edit Settings"
Uncheck "Allow" -- it's at the bottom of the page.

These guys are really invasive fuckheads.

BTW, don't link this LJ account or my email with any crap like Orkut or any of those contact tracking sites. I don't liked them, and if they get too pesky about emailing me, I may unfriend you to get them to stop bugging me.

Oh, and I don't buy shit that is email marketed to me unless I specifically asked for the fucking catalog. I especially don't buy diet crap, weight anything, hair or beauty anything, baby or child anything, dating or sex crap, or anything else marketed to the pink collar ghetto.

Thanks for this, I will pass it around. Though I don't Faceplant. It's bad enough I get the Russian based Spam off (what I believe to be) LJ and all the Viagra crap from being on FetLife.

I generally hate farcebook as well. I have it under my RealName™ for my work and class reunion, and don't tend to update it. It's invasive and asinine, IMO. I like what little privacy I can chisel out in the panopticon world.

I finally got smart and changed my facebook email to one that has no email contact list! It should work. I've noticed far fewer friend suggestions since I did that. I consider my contact list MY list, not theirs! If enough of us start using gmail and other no contact list emails with them, maybe they'll get the picture. I doubt it, but it's worth a try anyway. Peace ---- Mom
