    Suspect for Not Being on Facebook

    Now, i'm already someone who is not very fond of this social media hype nowadays, but this truly made me loathe it. An article (will be translated) explains how it can be suspicious to not have an account on Facebook. Employers can not check up on you and links are being made with (mass) murderers who also didn't have an account.

    It makes me sick to my stomach. Things like Facebook do NOT exist for our fun, they exist as a means of collecting and abusing your data, they exist to make us into egocentric shallow beings.

    Where is the social in 'social media', when my niece cries out in agony that she didn't get any 'likes' on her picture, the moment she got home with her family from visiting her (my) dying grandfather last week (now passed away). Thankfully the family had a good talk to her, but i find it all extremely worrisome.


    Being suspect for not behaving like everyone else, for not wanting your private information available for everyone, including companies, for not being a follower. It reminds me of some science fiction movies whom i think may be very accurate in their predictions.

    As i obviously hold my Skadi brothers and sisters dearer than most other people, i wonder if the ones that are active in certain social media forms wouldn't want to consider to get rid of this (one of many) cancer of our societies.

    This is exactly what the employers do not take into consideration, that you, or I or anyone else might be a part of other social networking groups.

    Well, that was the most disturbing thing I read all week...

    What insane society do we live in where people who do not openly participate in the most frivolous and pointless forms of 'socialising' are immediately considered to be dangerous weirdoes?
    How about people who consider it pointless to be sitting glued to the TV screen hooting and shouting during a football match? (People like me!)
    Or those who are utterly clueless about most 'pop culture references' since they would rather read a book or go for a long walk instead of pretending to care about characters on asinine comedy shows? (Again, people like me!)
    I guess we better have police stop people on the street and ask them if they know the source of this phrase: "It is going to be legend- -What for it!- dary!)
    Failure to satisfactorily state the source of the phrase means registration on an extremist watch list.

    I have a Facebook profile, but it fortunately is not open to the public. It is a necessary evil in this modern day and age, since I have a lot of friends and acquittance who use it as their primary means of communication.

    And by the way: The author of the article states that neither James Holmes or Anders Breivik had Facebook accounts. Breivik indeed DID have both a Facebook account and an account at Twitter.

    I read somewhere on the internet, if your computer got sacked by the police it makes you - if male - even more suspicious if you have no porn on it.

    I really don´t give a **** about FB or other "social networks" as I have a real nice real life. If a government or my boss wants me to be subscribed to FB then he better arrange it for me.

    I won´t do it for him.

    I see a lot of fools with publicly visible 'cover images' about smoking weed and so on... enjoy being unemployed arseholes.

    I saw a job application through facebook the other day, you had to basically click to accept the fact they can nose through your data. Never will I do that. My own account should be unfindable by nosey HR people, and if they do find it they can't see anything but my photo and cover image.

    In short, if you're not a zombie doing what all the other braindead zombies are doing you're suspicious. Nothing new there, now is it?

    Btw, making a profile private won't protect it from access through f.e. employers, specially 'big' employers who can obtain more access rights than the normal public users. And it won't protect your data from being sold either, and 'security' agencies have direct access to the database anyway where also already deleted content is still visible for them. FB doesnt delete data or images, they just unlink it from your profile if you press the delete button.

    It's also difficult to actually delete a profile, the option was hidden in the help-section, the option from within the profile just makes it inactive, but still there and accessible. It's not intended that one leaves the Stasi club^^

    Otherwise good post, but this:

    Please allow an old man to pose a question under the tacit assumption that you haven't met the majority of the users here:

    How can you hold dear people you have never met personally? Even if they seem somewhat likeable judged upon their writing here, they could turn out to be complete assholes in real life. This includes myself of course.

    Therefore, your statement could be considered kind of weird, at least by a "normal" person. However, it is a well known fact remarked on many occasion by the great Agrippa that most people here are schizothymic (for the definition: see Kretschmer's work) males (the girls are mostly schizothymic, too) who hardly fit the definition "normal", which is not bad at all, quite the contrary.

    For the rest, as I said initially, you seem to be right to a large extent. I don't have a Facebook account either. What for should I have one? As time goes by, I have asymptotically zero friends in real life, so I don't need "0 friends" on Facebook.

    Example:
    Who wants to be employed in this world anyway? Working for the plutocratic oligarchy? If you have the choice, better not.

    Proof of this? It would make no sense to ask for peoples passwords, like some employers have been doing, if they could.

    Yes, they're asking for passwords to gain access to hidden profile info, but some employers (forgot where I heard that tbh, it's been a while back), dont know, maybe banks or govt employers, whatever also can get access without your help. If someone asks you for your password of whatever though, ask him back whether he'll give you the codes for his credit cards and the password for his private email-account, or his own FB account so that you can check who wants to employ you^^. It's quite bold, to say the least, to ask for passwords and the only way to answer such a question is to hang up the phone or leave the meeting. No point to be employed by a wanna-be stasi boss, no?

    The sad thing is that many people will just give their passwords because they're desperate for getting a job and this is why that "practice" has become so widespread. People just dont have a spine anymore.
