7-things-to-stop-doing-now-on-facebook: Personal Finance News fr If you want to drive something dependable and long-lasting, steer clear of these vehicles. With a 22% improvement in sales last month, and despite the six-month, $4.3 billion loss it announced Wednesday, General Motors is likely to have its strongest spring and summer in years. Plus, the automaker had critically acclaimed new products at the recent New York Auto Show and the much-anticipated Chevrolet Volt is due out this fall. Year-over-year sales of GM's Cadillac division alone are up almost 76%; sales in the Buick, Chevrolet and GMC divisions were each up more than 40% for March. Unfortunately just because GM's cars are selling well now doesn't mean they're the best bet for durability or value -- yet. Four of the seven vehicles on our list of the worst-made cars on the road come from GM brands.

New App Helps Keep Facebook's Hands Off Your Data A new application aims to put users back in control of their private data stored on the increasingly public social networking site, Facebook. With "The Green Safe" app, Facebook users can now export their profile data for offsite storage on Green Safe's servers. Data can then be purged from Facebook itself, allowing only friends to view profile information by way of a profile page tab labeled "My Info." Privacy Concerns for Facebook Users With the ever-growing concern about Facebook's data-sharing policies - policies that are now under attack from several U.S. senators - people are becoming more concerned about how personal information shared with the world's largest social networking site is being used. After already having been blindsided with "recommended settings" that automatically publicized previously private data like status updates and photos, Facebook users are now dealing with even more changes that have major privacy implications. How "The Green Safe" Works 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Facebook Federation Yesterday, AdAge ran a story that Facebook was preparing to roll out its first true location-based service (beyond its for-fun Presence thing). The story said that the social network was partnering with McDonald’s for a special Facebook app that would allow people to check-in to restaurants and get deals. But apps that use location to emulate Foursquare on Facebook have limited appeal. Much more interesting is what Facebook itself is planning to do with location. Today, they have a new story that, to be honest, seems more like a recap of yesterday’s, but with less of a focus on McDonald’s. What’s still not clear from all of this is if this location ability will be more like Foursquare or more like Twitter? That said, when tied in with the aforementioned McDonald’s app (and apps that other brands will undoubtedly build), the Facebook location plan could turn into more of a Foursquare-like one. And there’s something else to consider. It’s easy to be wary of the enemy you can see.

How To Create A Membership-Only Website using Wordpress The membership itself is also something that you can sell. There are people who create new products on a regular basis and instead of selling each product individually, they put everything inside a members area then give ongoing timely access to members who pay regularly. Something like magazine subscriptions. But it’s not always about money. Membership-only sites can also be utilized as online education centers where registered students can access their learning material; exclusive clubs where different level memberships will allow different access; or maybe a place to gather ideas for a project which restricted to team members of the project only. This idea of a membership-only site raised more questions in my mind. Building a Membership-Only Site In WordPress The first things that came to my mind about building a membership-only site is a self-hosted WordPress and a membership plugin. So I go to one of my experimental WordPress blogs and do a quick search for a good membership plugin.

La dictature Facebook peut-elle être renversée? | slate «Si Facebook était un pays, il serait le cinquième du globe»; «Facebook, quatrième population mondiale»; «Facebook et ses 400 millions d'habitants». Depuis que le réseau social de Mark Zuckerberg est devenu l'incarnation moderne du village global, ce genre de métaphore est devenu un point de passage obligé pour expliquer son impact sur nos vies. Mais au-delà de l'aspect symbolique, le tout-puissant site américain ne partagerait-il pas quelques points communs avec l'organisation d'une nation? Bien sûr, Facebook ne dispose d'aucune structure étatique, hormis son siège californien de Palo Alto, à quelques dizaines de kilomètres de San Francisco. La parabole de Facebook A l'écouter, la plateforme américaine serait donc une timocratie, cette oligarchie tempérée dans laquelle ceux qui dirigent érigent la valeur -financière et morale- en vertu suprême (de Timô, fixer le prix d'une chose, en grec). Les problèmes que vous ne pouvez pas ignorer? Vers un triumvirat? Olivier Tesquet

Wie man auf Facebook seine Privatsphäre besser schützen kann Nach heftigen Protesten hat Facebook Anfang der Woche den Zugriff von App-Entwicklern auf Telefonnummern und Wohnadressen seiner Nutzer vorerst gestoppt. Was war passiert? Übers Wochenende hatte Facebook eine neue Schnittstelle für Entwickler von Apps eingerichtet, mithilfe der es ihnen möglich gemacht wurde, an - zum Beispiel - Handynummern von Facebook-Usern zu gelangen. In die Falle von App-Betrügern tappen Dennoch war der Netzgemeinde das Risiko, dass unbedarfte User in die Falle von App-Betrügern tappen, aber zu groß. Es ist nicht das erste Mal, dass Facebook ins Visier von Datenschützern und aufmerksamer Öffentlichkeit gerät. Wer auf soziale Kontakte im Internet nicht verzichten, aber dennoch seine Privatsphäre wahren will, findet auch auf Facebook Möglichkeiten, seine Daten vor fremden Zugriffen zu schützen. Mit den Privatsphäre-Einstellungen legt man fest, welche Personen und Anwendungen die eigenen Informationen sehen können. Wer darf was von mir sehen Weiterführende Links:

Like Button Reveals More Than Friends Realize I'm not sure why but I saw this and it made me nervous. I felt I was peaking into a neighbor's window when I landed upon the Likebutton.me website. When I wear my marketer's hat (as I did for this Adweek interview) everything seems just fine. What makes it unusual is that in those moments of liking something, your friends aren't thinking about who or what else is going to be seeing their actions. The benefits to marketers is undeniable and as long as companies look at the data in an anonymized fashion that's fine too. Twine.com
