Facebook – The Abuses

Facebook

I have always been a bit paranoid to a degree to lay out all my information on any social networking websites, and now this is all coming true since they changed the user agreement contracts, and nobody really did anything about it to stop them. The worst part is that your profile can never really be deleted, the information is always there, and as stated below all your comments are stored in a Database that they can query later and take a nice look. Look at the ridiculousness of the employees by reading the points below, its insane how much information they have stored up and people don’t realize. Facebook is even blocking those companies that are trying to provide a service in which you can delete your profile and everything associated with it, so they want to keep your info. Facebook is morphing into this scary blog with world domination in mind, at one point they will cripple all the world’s governments.

  • As of a few months ago, Facebook records and archives information on whose profile you view. (Apparently this was already publicly known.)
  • Facebook has 200-220 million active users, and more than 300 million total accounts, including disabled accounts and potential fakes.
  • At one point, Facebook staff widely used a “master password” that unlocked access to anyone’s account. Use of this password has been “deprecated,” i.e. discouraged, implying the password might still exist and work. What was the password? “With upper and lower case, symbols, numbers, all of the above, it spelled out ‘Chuck Norris,’ more or less. It was pretty fantastic.”
  • The Facebook employee is aware of at least two coworkers being fired for abusing their access to profiles; the employee herself also inappropriately access profiles.
  • Facebook employees can “just query the database” to find your Facebook messages.
