” Participation on Facebook could prove very dangerous to your future well-being. There is a reason that Facebook is aligned with both the CIA and the NSA. I have several credible sources tell me that all data posted on Facebook goes into series of cataloged files which culminates with each person being assigned a “Threat Matrix Score”. The mere existence of a Threat Matrix Score should send chills up and the collective spines of every American.
When, not if, martial law comes to America, this Threat Matrix Score, of which Facebook data is used to help compile an “enemies of the state” list, your future longevity could be seriously imperiled. It is too late for people like Steve Quayle, Doug and Joe Hagmann, John B. Wells and myself to avoid being placed on this list. However, it is not too late for the average American to limit their exposure by NOT posting and participating on Facebook. Facebook participation should come with a black box warning:
“ WARNING: The views expressed on Facebook can and will be used against you. Participation in Facebook could prove detrimental to the length of your life. All political dissident views are immediately reported to the CIA and the NSA. Risk of repeated exposure on Facebook could result in you and your family being hauled out of their homes at 3AM, separated from your family and sent to a re-education camp”. “

” People in Scotland have begun voting on independence today. If Scotland votes Yes, the United Kingdom will split and Scots will go their own way, ending a 307-year-old union. The crucial ballot is expected to go down to the wire, with polls showing the contest is too close to call. Here is a summary of the latest developments and analysis:
- Andy Murray backs Scottish independence
- Final polls show undecided voters could swing the result either way
- The NO comment: We cannot risk our children’s future
- The YES comment: A fairer Scotland is within our grasp
- Almost half of ‘No’ voters have felt ‘personally threatened’ by the ‘Yes’ campaign
- When will the result be announced “
The Independent is live blogging the voting and below are some links to other popular means of keeping up to date on the Scot’s vote for independence .
” On July 23, when Facebook reported its earnings for the second quarter, the company stunned everyone.
Revenues were $2.68 billion, up 67% from the same quarter during the year before.
Even better, 62% of those revenues came from the sale of mobile ads, a business Facebook didn’t enter until 2012, after its IPO. Facebook is now a $200 billion company. That’s a huge number. Facebook’s market cap is now larger than Amazon’s and Yahoo’s combined.
All of it has Facebook investors big and small thrilled. They should be! Anyone who bought in on Facebook’s IPO has doubled their money by now.
It’s still growing its user base. Mark Zuckerberg has shown he’s incredibly savvy about making aggressive acquisition offers. COO Sheryl Sandberg obviously knows how to generate ad revenues.
All that said, there is one way Facebook is letting down shareholders: It’s withholding crucial information about its mobile advertising business. It won’t say how much of its mobile advertising revenues come from a product called “Mobile App Install Ads.” “

” The US tech industry has failed to appreciate the mounting global concern over its record on online privacy and security and must act fast to prevent deeper damage to its image, Silicon Valley’s top executives and investors have conceded.
The self-criticism, much of it aimed at consumer internet companies such as Google and Facebook, comes as some of the tech sector’s best-known names have been battered by a backlash over revelations of widespread US internet surveillance and concerns about their growing business and cultural dominance.
Peter Thiel, a prominent start-up investor and Facebook director, said: “Silicon Valley is quite oblivious to the degree to which this crescendo of concern is building up in Europe. It’s an extremely important thing and Silicon Valley is underestimating it badly.
Jim Breyer, an early investor and former board member of Facebook, said: “The US government and [tech] companies will have to step up significantly if they want to regain the world’s trust.”

” A Mexican veterinarian accidentally shot himself dead as he posed for a Facebook selfie with a pistol, police said.
Oscar Otero Aguilar, 21, had reportedly been drinking with pals in Mexico City last weekend when he pointed the loaded gun at his face for the snap.
But the .45 caliber weapon discharged – and he was hit in the temple by the bullet.
Neighbors heard the gunshot and called cops.
Officers arrived to find him still alive, but they lost a battle to save him – and he was declared dead at the scene soon after.”

” I bet you thought Facebook tweaked your feed to provide you with “relevant” information you might find useful.
What if you found out that instead they “tweaked” it in an attempt to determine whether they could manipulate your emotional state?
Scientists at Facebook have published a paper showing that they manipulated the content seen by more than 600,000 users in an attempt to determine whether this would affect their emotional state. The paper, “Experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks,” was published inThe Proceedings Of The National Academy Of Sciences. It shows how Facebook data scientists tweaked the algorithm that determines which posts appear on users’ news feeds—specifically, researchers skewed the number of positive or negative terms seen by randomly selected users. Facebook then analyzed the future postings of those users over the course of a week to see if people responded with increased positivity or negativity of their own, thus answering the question of whether emotional states can be transmitted across a social network. Result: They can!
There seems to be this idea that you can get “something for nothing”, or the “something” you “pay” is in some way beneficial. But what if it’s not? What if it’s intended to manipulate how you think and respond to events around you? What if that manipulation doesn’t end with an advertising message trying to get you to buy one product over another?
A rather liberal reading of Facebook’s terms would probably lead you to conclude that you agreed to this when you signed up for an account. But this much is certain — you weren’t told about it in advance, and you didn’t explicitly consent.
This particular instance came to light because it led to a published research paper. How much of this is going on in other venues entirely in secret, covered by the same sort of “policy agreement”, without your consent?
My best guess: A whole lot of it.”

” As Xochitl Dalton pulled into the parking lot of the Wet’n’Wild Splash Town water park, a disturbing sight caught her eye. “I looked over and saw that there was a huge yellow Lab,” she told KPRC-TV in Houston, noting the dog inside an SUV with Wisconsin plates parked next to her vehicle. “It looked like it was really, really hot.” Indeed, temperatures in the area passed 90 degrees on Friday, but investigators later told the station that the temperature inside the vehicle in question could have been as much as 140 degrees — and deputies said the dog was on the verge of passing out after being locked inside for hours. So Dalton summoned police to the water park in Spring, Texas, about a half hour north of Houston — but she did something else, too.
“I posted a picture of the dog to several Facebook groups,” she told KPRC. “I was amazed at how many people were wanting to rescue this dog.” In fact, about a dozen people from all over town rushed over to the water park to help.
“I immediately dropped everything, got in my car and drove from Magnolia up here, ready to bust the windshield out,” Melissa Camp, who saw the post on Facebook, told the station. On Dalton’s Facebook page, as she apparently chatted with concerned friends after posting the photo of the dog, she writes that a police officer had arrived but wouldn’t break the vehicle’s window: “He is trying to find the owner!” Dalton writes. “Really??”
Before those gathered around the vehicle broke any windows and before police returned to the scene, KPRC reported that a park employee squeezed his hand through a small opening in the window, unlocked the door, and got the panting Labrador out.
When the park closed Friday evening, KPRC reported that authorities found the dog’s owner and arrested him. He wasn’t identified but deputies indicated he’d be booked into jail on animal cruelty charges. The dog underwent a health evaluation and was in the custody of the Harris County Constable Pct. 1 Office.”
” Last week, Facebook announced that it was going to start tracking our browsing activity. Facebook is claiming that this feature is part of its ad-tailoring program (it also recently introduced a tool that lets you give feedback on ads). Of course, it’s not quite that innocent: Advertisers will pay more for information on what you do outside of Facebook because it will help them target you better inside of Facebook.
Sound good to you? Great, carry on! No? You have some choices, including privacy company Abine’s new DoNotTrackMe tool for Facebook.
” It is crazy for anyone to allow Facebook to collect their browsing history when they’re not even logged into Facebook,” said Abine CEO Rob Shavell, in a press release announcing the technology. “The idea that one company should be trusted to know about our friends and family and then also everything we do online is insane.”
And the scope of Facebook’s tracking ability is greater than you may think. “Our browsing history, which Facebook can only collect because of the many ‘like’ and ‘login’ buttons they have placed on other sites, allows Facebook to connect two critical sets of information about us: ‘Who we are,’ our identity and personal information and social graph; [and] ‘what we do,’ which sites we go to each day, what we do there, and more,” Shavell explained via email.
” You might have ‘nothing to hide,’ but if you have a Facebook account and surf without technology protecting you from this new default on data collection, you will certainly find out,” he says. “
From the DoNotTrackMe website …
” If you’re like the average web user, you’re unknowingly tracked over 100 times each time you surf the web.
DoNotTrackMe automatically blocks these tracking companies – ad networks, social networks, and sneaky data collection companies – from tracking your browsing behind the scenes. DoNotTrackMe has blocked over 1 trillion attempts to track millions of users’ browsing and actively blocks over 600 of these companies.
DoNotTrackMe also protects your email address, phone, and credit card from being abused by companies on the web and on your mobile device.”

” I was sitting at a long stoplight yesterday, minding my own business , patiently waiting for it to turn green even though there was no on-coming traffic …
… A carload of bearded , young , loud Muslims, shouting anti-American slogans , with a half-burned American flag duct taped to the trunk of their car and a “Remember 9-11″ slogan spray painted on the side , was stopped next to me …
… Suddenly they yelled , Praise Allah” and took off before the light changed. Out of nowhere an 18-wheeler came speeding through the intersection and ran directly over their car , crushing it completely and killing everyone in it …
… For several minutes I sat in my car thinking to myself , “Man … that could have been me ! ” …
… So today , bright and early , I went out and got a job as a truck driver . “

” There might be hundreds of photographers meeting different people on the streets in different parts of the world uploading their photos with their stories onto Facebook or their blogs right now. I have been following several of them, so let me share some of the most interesting posts of some of the most powerful “Humans of” projects.
Of course I have to mention the one and only “Brandon Stanton” who started uploading his first photos of humans to his Facebook page “Humans of New York.” Soon afterwards, however, many photographers around the globe started to upload their pictures representing the huge variety of different people around the whole globe.
This is just a small selection of the whole conglomerate of photos uploaded daily on many different locations. Below each picture, you can find the source of these photographs and follow these amazing blogs via Facebook yourself!
It’s an amazing experience to see different people worldwide and an amazing proof that we all have to unite and make this planet a better place for all!”
