Something's Not Quite Right With These 10 Weird Santas

Something's Not Quite Right With These 10 Weird Santas | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it
Ho, ho, eeks, no! It seems there's always a shortage of spot-on Mr. Claus lookalikes. That means plenty of weird Santas to stuff in your sack.

No matter what Coca-Cola implied, not every Santa Claus can pull off the rosy-cheeked, red-suited look. Never mind the full white beard and jelly belly.

The demand for Santa lookalikes during the holidays means sometimes settling for a Kris Kringle who looks like the North Pole plucked him from a back alley knockoff store. Sure, he’ll still open his gift sack, but who cares about presents when visions of Santa dance in your nightmares?

How To Keep Companies and Apps From Tracking You On Facebook

How To Keep Companies and Apps From Tracking You On Facebook | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it

Whether you know it or not, many companies are likely tracking you across the web both on and off Facebook. How can they do that? Simple: when you download and use their apps on Facebook, you’re granting them many more rights and permissions than you might know. 

Bonnie Burns's insight:

 First, to turn off the tracking, click on the down arrow in the upper right corner of your Facebook profile. From there, click on the “Ads” button and change the “Pair my social action with ads” tab to “no one.” While you are here, check out the last section and follow the link to the Digital Advertising Alliance. Here you can opt-out of their interest based advertising.

Yuck! This app lets you anonymously harass contacts and should be banned | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it

An app to anonymously tell someone you have a crush on them could only have been developed by a man. Women get enough of that crap already.

Mom Finds Stolen Photos Of Her Baby On Facebook

Mom Finds Stolen Photos Of Her Baby On Facebook | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it

A Forth Worth, Texas, mother received a rude surprise when she found a picture of her one-year-old daughter being used on an imposter Facebook profile. What’s worse, she had originally posted the photo in a closed Facebook group. 

Bonnie Burns's insight:

There are several steps Facebook users can take to ensure their photos are harder to steal. First, you can upload low-resolution pics, so even if they are taken they will be difficult to use. Second, you can configure the privacy settings for each of your individual Facebook photo albums.  It’s also important to be selective on who you accept as friends and use sharing controls accordingly. However, if you want to truly secure your most precious photos, experts say the best plan is not to upload them at all.

"Oh look, there is one... actually that was a lot easier than I was expecting," he grins. "There's a whale right there."

It's almost as if the whale knew.
