How to clear your Facebook search history

 

Can you lose your Facebook Page because you didn't follow the rules? Facebook would never shut down a Page because they ran a contest and did something like... oh, I don't know, maybe offer to donate a dollar to charity for every Like their Page gets... right?

I'm constantly seeing people saying they've never heard of a Page being shut down for violating a rule and that Facebook doesn't enforce most of them anyway. Well, here are two examples of some popular Pages that were shut down by Facebook for some seemingly innocent contest rule violations. Think it's okay to do it just because you see the big dogs doing it? Think again.

It's always great practice to also  to go back and review what you've posted and commented on just in case. This is a must-do.

Martin Gysler's comment, February 6, 2013 11:27 AM
Yes Dawn, and I think it's not only a must-do but also an educational matter.

Twitter bug gives 3rd-party apps access to users' Direct Messages

Twitter bug gives 3rd-party apps access to users' Direct Messages | Social media and education | Scoop.it

"There should be millions of Twitter users that have signed in with Twitter into third-party applications. Some of these applications might have gained access to and might still have access to Twitter users private direct messages," he points out, and advises users to check third-party applications permissions and revoke the apps to which they never gave permission to access their DMs.

Today’s infographic shows these divergent philosophies of Internet culture and, most interestingly, what the average Internet user thinks about the privacy of their information online.

 

**What type of user are you?

 

**Do you prefer anonymity or transparency?

Jan,
This is a terrific summary of the infographic. My feeling is that transparency is not a black and white definition of - disclosing everything or disclosing nothing. There's lots of shades of gray. I like the definition of transparency from "Public Parts" that Jeff Jarvis published last year - it also includes engaging with people around what you disclose. I think there is a place for being anonymous - especially when the information you disclose might put you in physical danger. Have written a lot about transparency - about the practice in my first book and in my second book how to measure it http://www.bethkanter.org/power-light/

 Twitter has released new numbers showing that the social network complied with government data requests 69% of the time in the U.S., as government requests for user information worldwide continue to rise.

 

The total number of information requests increased to 1,009 during the second half of 2012, up from 849 during the first half of the year, according to Twitter's transparency report. Government requests for content removal also increased to 42 from just six.

 

"All signs suggest that these government inquiries will continue to climb into the foreseeable future," Twitter said.
