@ehBeth,
Next thing you're going to tell us is that you do not resemble Winnie the Pooh like your avatar so blatantly suggests! Sad

@dlowan,
Well, actually, the Tsar did it by giving access to his FB info to Stella.

It's a bit like those STD ads of yore - with about 85,000 people in a bed together. You're not just hooking up with one other person - you're hooking up with everyone they've ever hooked up with.

You really need to be careful about who/what you give FB access to.

The Tsar's privacy settings, as he posted them, are loose to my way of thinking.

@Rockhead,
I just use it to promote news and culture based articles I find enlightening. I never visit the site on a weekly basis. I just click the send article to my Facebook profile page with the Facebook link on the original article's webpage.

When your friend visits a Facebook-enhanced application or website, they may want to share certain information to make the experience more social. For example, a greeting card application may use your birthday information to prompt your friend to send a card

If your friend uses an application that you do not use, you can control what types of information the application can access. Please note that applications will always be able to access your publicly available information (Name, Profile Picture, Gender, Current City, Networks, Friend List, and Pages) and information that is visible to Everyone.



you can control what others release in these categories

* Personal info (activities, interests, etc.)
* Status updates
* Online presence
* Website
* Family and relationship status
* Relationship details (significant other, looking for, etc.)
* Education and work
* My videos
* My links
* My notes
* My photos
* Photos and videos of me
* About me
* My birthday
* My hometown
* My religious and political views

@ehBeth,
There are also private (well supposedly) groups that are not open to the public where work and info. is shared. It can't be seen by a non-member on the person's profile page and it is by invite only and you are screened by the creator.

That would seem reasonable except that I dont know how my name profile pic etyc will be used, as was the case here. My profile pic ended up in a frame that said "no class no style". That, to me, is defamatory. Fortunatly, as i understand it, the advert/video is targeted specefically for that particular user. ie no-one else sees that particular frame.

One of the reasons i use facebook is that the vast majority of people are not anonymous. That means they need to be responsible and accountable for what they say and do on facebook.

Thanks ehbeth for the walk through of privacy settings. Not that i had any real personal info on there anyway.

@ehBeth,
But I don't think anyone is trying to say he did it on purpose, nor that the photos in question will appear to anyone but him, are they?

Surely Stella is at fault here?

@TTH,
Yes, there are private groups. Details of those, at this point, don't show up anywhere the group manager doesn't allow.

A friend of mine had one of her own groups locked up so tightly she couldn't see the posts any of the other members made. Oops.

@dlowan,
I'm confused re facebook, as I almost signed up once and as far as I know, didn't finish doing that, so I haven't walked through it all. I don't even get the settings Tsar posted - it seems terminology changes from category to category. The locked icon and the words after it seem to vary in meaning.

I can see one's photos going to and fro with the settings not sharply restrictive. Showing friends' photos sans their permission seems freaky to me, even if in the public avatars. I get that FB assumes the right, and may well be right about it, but ick. How the hell could Dadpad begin to guess his avatar photo might become part of an ad? He'd have to be pretty sophisticated walking in, and dadpad is one of our more savvy posters. And Tsar, also savvy, was clearly surprised, even freaked. Neither person expected this.

Thus I blame facebook.

I would like to join to possibly reconnect with some old friends, but fb gives me the willies. I don't think I'm smart enough to navigate the privacy settings.

Meantime, I keep getting notices from various real life and outer life (ha) friends that I am invited yet again to see their photos - not sure if that means I have to join.

@ossobuco,
The pictures someone posts on FB are public. Here is an example of one of mine:
"Share this photo with anyone by sending them this public link:http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=191815&l=7a01734ef0&id=1694632094"

As far as I am concerned, anyone can use it for personal purposes except to profit from the use of the photo.

note: I edited this post to add the quotations

ossobuco that is why I only post pictures there were I have gotten permission from the people that are in them. I want to respect their privacy, unless it is a government official and their name is not visible.
