PostSubject: I yeild to facebook   Sun Jan 25, 2009 3:38 am

So I've been opposed to facebook for a while. Frankly it's boring and lacks the ability for me to jazz it up to my liking. I'm a visual person and require the canvas to express that. Facebook does not satisfy my requirements.

However...I keep getting friend requests on facebook (i did join a while back, not sure why) and have gotten the impression that more and more people are moving over to this in lea of Myspace. So I gave in and have begun trying to embrace facebook (though i will remain devoted to my mysace page).

So can anyone give me the facebook basic, tips, apps that are fun, explanations as to what exactly is the appeal over myspace? Anything?

I've visited a few of your pages that I am friends with already and found a few fun apps. (I really like Flair, i think that was from Cha's page). But I was looking for other apps to jazz up the "WALL"

I also wonder if it's possible to add color or change the color theme of the page, I found an app colored "Expressions" but i can't seem to get it to work.

So let me know, all you facebookers...show me the light that has dragged you to this sterile, lifeless social network so that i may enjoy it as you do.

I prefer myspace over facebook., But I joined facebook a while back just for that reason. It seems like everyone is moving over,

New Facebook controversy has emerged.

Recently Facebook has re worded their terms of services which now states that all of the content you’ve ever uploaded on Facebook can be used, modified or even sublicensed by Facebook in every possible way - even if you quit the service.

Here's a link to the story:
http://mashable.com/2009/02/16/facebook-tos-privacy/

Also a link to an interesting page that breaks down more of facebook's TOS, in terms of what i means for your personal use, copyrights, registration, application warnings and privacy.

This includes revealing info on:

Your content
• "In plain English, this means you’re giving up copyright control of your material. If you upload a photo to Facebook, they can sell copies of it without paying you a cent. If you write lengthy notes (or import your blog posts!), Facebook can turn them into a book, sell a million copies, and pay you nothing. This deserves careful consideration!"

Applications you install
• "In other words, “installer beware.” A malicious application developer could break through Facebook’s security protocols and expose your info. That would probably be difficult to do, but Facebook wouldn’t have to take the blame."

Your ability to sue them
•"Suffice it to say, you probably won’t have a day in court with Facebook. If you did, it would be in California (required by the TOS), and the court would follow Delaware’s laws. That’s typical lawyering. "


Personal Submissions and ideas
• "This is probably typical of a large company. But you might not send them your latest award-winning idea. If you have something really great, keep it under wraps. Heck, maybe come up with a formal business proposal and some way to skirt this legal term."

and Privacy
• I’d think twice before posting really private things on Facebook. From their Privacy Policy:

Quote :
[W]e cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Site will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.

• "If somebody hacks Facebook, steals all your content and contact info, then does something nefarious with it, you have no remedy against Facebook. The hacker would definitely be in trouble, but Facebook is the deep-pocketed corporation.
Besides, Facebook’s own third-party contractors might misuse your information:

Quote :
We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. … Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the Facebook-specified purposes.

But most importantly, Facebook doesn’t guarantee your privacy:

Quote :
Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos, Marketplace listings or other items , this information may become publicly available.

If a company laptop is compromised, and all your personal data gets stolen, tough luck. You were warned."
