“No one knows who will live in this cage in the future, or whether at the end of this tremendous development, entirely new prophets will arise, or there will be a great rebirth of old ideas and ideals, or, if neither, mechanized petrification, embellished with a sort of convulsive self-importance. For of the fast stage of this cultural development, it might well be truly said: ‘Specialists without spirit, sensualists without heart; this nullity imagines that it has attained a level of civilization never before achieved.’”—Max Weber, 1905 On November 12 Facebook, Inc. filed its 178th patent application for a consumer profiling technique the company calls “inferring household income for users of a social networking system.” Iron Cagebook » CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names
Wolf Pack, a Facebook app center game,blew me away recently when a fan messaged me and asked what I thought about a game that required a user to prove their real life identity. In this day and age of Internet snooping that includes hackers; advertisers; rogue Facebook apps; ID thief’s, and Big Brother — who in their right mind would want to surf bare-bottomed and play a game that masks it’s own identity behind a privacy shield? What is Wolf Pack? According to the Wolf Pack fanpage the game was founded in 2009: Wolf Packs is a unique highly fun game where you are responsible for bringing up your own wolf from cub to elder. Look after its emotions, go hunting, fight wolves from other packs or fight within your pack to become the dominant alpha wolf! Facebook game requirement: A birth certificate? - Tekblog | Tekblog
Around ten o’clock on most nights, Matt Kruse will kiss his wife and two daughters goodnight, sit down in front of his computer and start coding. It’ll be one or two in the morning before he goes to bed. He works as a Web application developer at a staffing company during the day, but those late-night hours in his Illinois home are where he works on what he calls “who I really am.” Kruse spends those hours making Facebook better. He doesn’t get paid for it, and he’s not an employee of the company (although it has tried to hire him before). Meet Matt Kruse, the man making Facebook better

Nov. 28 (UPI) -- In the wake of recent breastfeeding photo controversies, the (NSFW) blog Theories of the deep understanding of things decided to test Facebook's terms of service and censorship policies by posting a photo of a bathing woman to its Facebook page. The grainy photo features a blond woman in a bathtub flashing a single pink elbow, which could look like a breast at first glance. It was posted last Saturday with the caption, "Once again, testing Facebook alertness." Facebook moderators must have taken only a cursory look at the photo because they removed the post less than 24 hours later on Sunday. Facebook restores elbow photo mistaken for breast
Here's one theory and analysis of what might have happened. Some people's emails got out into the public internet, and were indexed. Some of these emails were from Facebook, and included links to resources that require login. These links pre-populated the username field for convenience, or in some cases auto-login the user. Facebook's engineers probably did not anticipate email notifications to users being crawled by Google. More than 1MM Facebook accounts exposed

Mixed Feelings After My Conversation With Facebook. | I Talk Web :@
Pinterest Explodes Into Mainstream | Wired Business Pinterest, Silicon Valley’s startup of the moment, is starting to register with mainstream users. The social network for sharing pictures of fancy things finally cracked Comscore’s list of top 50 U.S. websites. All the way down at number 50, with 25.3 million unique visitors, Pinterest.com still ranks behind Myspace, Verizon, and the decidedly old-school Washington Post.
FACEBOOK: I WANT MY FRIENDS BACK If you want to send Facebook a message, please feel free to use our graphics for your Facebook page This has been brewing since around May. At least that’s when we first started noticing it here at Dangerous Minds and we certainly weren’t the only ones. Spring of 2012 was when bloggers, non-profits, indie bands, George Takei, community theaters, photographers, caterers, artists, mega-churches, high schools, tee-shirt vendors, campus coffee shops, art galleries, museums, charities, food trucks, and a near infinite variety of organizations; individuals from all walks of life; and businesses, both large and small, began to detect—for it was almost imperceptible at first—that the volume was getting turned down on their Facebook reach.
The Reason I'm Closing Down Our Facebook Fan Page - TentBlogger Want to reach your fans? Pay Facebook first. Man, the hits keep on coming! Just over a month ago I left my personal Facebook page behind. I cannot tell you how freeing that has been and how that has radically changed my perspective about social networking, social media, and it’s impact and effect on community and relationships as well as human-computer interaction. Heck, I could probably write a book about it.
Facebook knows exactly who you are… Every time you buy that case of beer with a loyalty card or check out the latest magical unicorn mask at Amazon; all your offline shopping and online browsing data creeps back to Facebook (a globally ubiquitous Mothership). They know exactly who you are , what type of toilet paper you buy, how many chicken breasts you ate last week – along with all those secret vices that you think you are hiding… We know how to get your messages to real people, nearly one billion of them, because we know exactly who they are and whom they trust.
