Top Ten Links Week 21

My personally selected top 10 from the links I shared on Twitter from 5/21/2010 thru 5/27/2010. Ok I’ll confess right off the bat, I cheated, there are 12 links this week.  I just couldn’t cut them down. A couple of these deserve their own blog post so shame on me for not giving them the attention they deserve. 1. How (and Why) to Stop Multitasking … Continue reading Top Ten Links Week 21

What’s at Stake With Facebook is Not Privacy or Publicity But Informed Consent and Choice

If you’re still thinking about Facebook and privacy (and if you’re not you should be) these are some must read articles. Baym at Online Fandom has a recent post titled Why, despite myself, I am not leaving Facebook. Yet.

Facebook Community Pages vs Official Pages and Your Library or Business

I have paid very little attention to Facebook’s connections and the community pages it creates until yesterday. Yesterday I took a closer look at connections and my profile page.  Now like many libraries my library has a Facebook page it looks like this. I kept the library in my work history when I click on that name on my info tab I see this – … Continue reading Facebook Community Pages vs Official Pages and Your Library or Business

Employers You Don’t Have a Facebook Problem You Have an Employee Problem

Dear Facebook Friends Its Not You, Its Me

I’ve been flirting with the idea of cutting Facebook back to a more personal space for a while now.   Yesterday there was an incident that prompted me to remove a select group of people.  I decided that it was a good time to make the change to a more personal space.

When Facebook “upgraded” or “simplified” its privacy settings they removed the ability to turn off your recent activity feed (this was one update ago. I think).  Now everything you do posts to your wall and the news feed. You can not opt out. If you don’t like it Facebook says you’re welcome to use the “Remove” button. Great except there is no “remove” button on any mobile … Continue reading Dear Facebook, I Would Like My Illusion* of Privacy Back, K, Thanks
