Yet another attempt to use Facebook ‘s name for selfish things !!

A stationery store named itself “Facebook stationers” which has acquired great popularity to the store ! Perhaps,the owner was pinning the innocent school-goers  who incidentally make a large part of Facebook .

Earlier, a university in Paraguay had used the picture of Mark Zuckerberg for publicity..But this time its in India.

My first reaction to the announcement Facebook made was “What The ****“. which pretty much summarizes what I think of the latest move by the social networking giant. Facebook has silently made available, user’s address and mobile phone number to third-party apps. The only thing that is required is your explicit permission when the standard dialog box opens.

What worries me is the fact that people do not read what’s written in the dialog box. I have friends who use Facebook and they do not seem to to care what access they are providing to the third-party applications. If this is the case with adults, then you can never expect your kids to know the details. Facebook is known to be used by stalkers and fraudsters and the new rules seem to abet the crimes they commit and providing address details is the worst of the two.

So next time,think twice before you click that “Allow” button in tag your friends.

Don’t allow networking to Become NET-working….hope you get it!

keep your replies coming……

A news piece that appeared in weekly world news has made all the tech blogs go crazy.It stated that facebook will be closing down in march.People were so alarmed that some of them even tried to contact facebook executives to confirm the report.Some of them even commented below,about how they would miss facebook.Now that is something incredible.

Weekly world publishes articles like “ALIEN SPACESHIPS TO ATTACK EARTH IN 2011” and “SCIENTISTS CLONE DINOSAUR” etc.Now how can you believe such a site?

Shutting one of the most profitable enterprises like facebook does seem to be insane on part of Mark Zuckerberg.

Tell us what you feel.
