John C. Dvorak X3: Facebook Settles with the FTC
In the latest episode of John Dvorak X3, John and friends discuss Facebook’s settlement with the FTC over charges the company violated users’ privacy.
I enjoy “gaming” Facebook by doing the following: log in to a public access UNIX system of which I’m a supporting member, via an SSH tunnel through an undisclosed port, using either PuTTY or Mac OSX Terminal. Then, I log into Facebook Mobile at http://m.facebook.com/ with w3m -cookie m.facebook.com as the command, option and argument. The cookies can only track me to the data-center which houses the machine to which I’m logged in. I don’t browse anywhere else when I’m logged into Facebook so they have no other user information other that I’m either visually-impaired, technically-literate or perhaps, both. Robert.
CORRECTION: Instead of … no other user information … , I meant to write … no other browsing information … . My apologies for the error. Robert.
Robert — thanks for that tip. You should write that up for us. Got time for a little freelancing ; ) gs
Ok. I’m very new at this but I’ll try. I’m surprised to think what I know might be of any use to anyone but if you think such, I trust you on that. I’ve always trusted Jerry, John C., yourself and still do, more so than many others.
What I mean is that II trust Jerry, John C. and yourself more so than I trust many others who write on tech.
Hi Gina. As per your request elsewhere online, I sent you an email a few days or so ago. Am I too late? Did I make a mess out of things (as I often do)? :-o
