Facebook invasion of privacy

Post by Mayflow on Mon Jun 29, 2015 3:56 pm

Yesterday after years on Facebook, they wanted me to make two names (A first and last). Ok, So then I was Mayflow Mayflow. Today I cannot log in which is a bit of a shame as I have somewhere north of 650 friends. They today say my name might not be my real legal name by governmental rule.

Really, you think Mr Facebook? Now they want me to give them official government documentation - I am sorry Facebook, but that is invasion of my personal information, besides you are not a real person, you are an organization like the government and you cannot have my personal information. Sorry to lose contact with many good people, but my personal Freedom is mine not yours Mr Facebook.

There is a terrible tension between how people
use their anonymity online to be destructive; and,
how, if everyone is compelled not to be anonymous,
then that information is also used destructively.

The solution is not a computer solution, because
the problem is psychological. When the powers-that-be
realize that their investment (the internet) would be best
looked-after by employing psychologists to spend their time
talking to the destructive people in a constructive manner;
then only - can the internet become a mature place
where human enrichment can take place.

For now it seems to be having the opposite effect.

As it is, the internet is held together by individuals who
have taken it on themselves to be responsive to the terrible
lives that more-and-more (most?) internet-users live.

Previously to the internet we had this perspective of the world
that was sanitized by the print media. After surfing the web
for the last 15 years, it has become more and more apparent
just how damaged so many people are.

When one considers that those who do not use the internet
(but will use it in the future) - are probably even worse
as they most-likely have a lower standard of living than
the current users, then the future of this medium still existing
15 years from now, is not at all guaranteed.

Preventing anonymity causes as much tragedy as allowing it.

When places like Facebook limit Freedom of minds, they will lose Free thinking minds. Free thinkers are very aquick to fly. However, Free thinking minds are not simple to figure. We may have to think about a forum on Free thinking minds.
