Just How Stupid Are Facebook Users????

Facebook uploaded email contacts of 1.5m users without consent

 

Facebook has admitted to “unintentionally” uploading the address books of 1.5 million users without consent, and says it will delete the collected data and notify those affected

The discovery follows criticism of Facebook by security experts for a feature that asked new users for their email password as part of the sign-up process. As well as exposing users to potential security breaches, those who provided passwords found that, immediately after their email was verified, the site began “importing” contacts without asking for permission.

The issue was first noticed in early April, when the Daily Beast reported on Facebook’s practice of asking for email passwords to verify new users. The feature, which allows Facebook to automatically log in to a webmail account to effectively click the link on an email verification itself, was apparently intended to smooth the workflow for signing up for a new account.

 

OH DEAR GOD !!!!!

How could any person be so stupid to give their email password out???

But the real shame is on FACEBOOK !!

How many people in their organization knew of this, allowed this and accepted this idea???

CAVEAT:

I have a Facebook account only because it is the only way I can keep in contact with a few people.  Otherwise, I would never go near Facebook.

 

Dear NFL

Dear NFL,

Just a quick note to let you know that I watched ZERO pro football on Sunday, 02/04/2018.

Instead, I watched a pretty good version of “Of Mice and Men” staring Gary Sinise and John Malkovich.  I still like the Lon Chaney Jr version the best, but this was a very good adaptation.

Also binge watched “NCIS” season 2 on Netflix.

Please let the fools that paid top dollar for commercial time on your Sunday game know that I did not watch any of them.

May as well let them know I most likely won’t be watching any Pro football in the 2018 season as well.

Please drop me a note when you start respecting American citizens and stop promoting the nonsensical social justice issues.
