Here is a conversation with an anonymous Facebook employee that makes me very happy I am not on Facebook.
But they'll never know if you're clicking on an ex because you're stalking him or because your co-worker likes to look at him frequently to die laughing at you.
WTF? My name is Caitlin and I would really like to know what that has to do with poop.
Wow. Your screename really resonates here.
I don't know, this stuff doesn't actually bother me all that much. Facebook is basically the online equivalent of the supermarket club card. Yeah, they creepily track everything I do and use it to their own business advantage, but in the end they send me customized coupons/I get to keep laughing at how bald the quarterback of my hs football team is.
Servers "around the world" include two in CA, one in NY, and one in London?
But thinking people at FB don't track your shit is like believing your location/activities aren't tracked through the GPS and other features on your iphone…THEY'RE WATCHING YOU, BALK!
If that bothers you, you should probably get off the internet!
Undoubtedly. I think if people understood even a fraction of the data gathered in any web browser they'd be shocked. In sum total, it generally isn't all that horrific from a privacy perspective. But it certainly would make people more cautious about what they chose to enter in to a web browser and what they do in general on the internet.
Ignorance is indeed bliss in this case.
Wow. They really do care about me.
Hope you never see an interview with an engineer at Gmail, then. This isn't really surprising or unusual!
I would like to be friends with this anonymous Facebook employee, I think.
That's it. I'm off to implode my account (for the third time). Per deepomega, however, this time I will be keeping thoughts about Zuckerberg et al. to myself.
