Chasin' down a Hoodoo...


« on: December 05, 2009, 01:27:49 PM »

Hey y'all,

 Since many of us are Facebook (and OC.net has it's own FB group), I wondered if a Facebook sub-forum would be useful?  For example, if anyone has a question about how to use Facebook features, we could ask them here.  What say all y'all?

Why not.  Maybe just a sticky thread, now that I think more of it, since many of the questions would get answered fairly quickly, and then the volume of posting would drop off (IMO).

A sticky sounds good.  Interest in the OC.net group on FB waxes and wanes frequently. Wink

Same here.  It's easier to keep up with OC.net at the source rather than secondhand.

OK, so I have some FB friends who say that when I comment on their wall, my name is in black while others are not.  I looked at my settings and don't seem to see anything odd???  I have friends who've had their accounts hacked into.  How is that possible?  Also, how 'private' should a person's setting be?  I think I have mine to where people can search for me, but they'll only see my avatar and limited info.  Does that sound 'private' enough?

Gabe, its odd that your name shows up in black to your FB friends. That indicates to me that you have limited your profile access only to friends. So if someone were to search your name on FB, they can't access your profile/add you as a friend. But like I said, odd that this extends to your friends. Best doublecheck your privacy settings.

Hey y'all,

Here's an article about privacy on Facebook you might find helpful.

Want privacy on Facebook? Here is how to get some
NEW YORK – Over the past week, Facebook has been nudging its users — first gently, then firmly — to review and update their privacy settings.

You may have procrastinated by hitting "skip for now," but Facebook eventually took away that button and forced you to update your settings before continuing to use the site.

After finally accepting Facebook's recommendations or tweaking the privacy settings yourself, though, you might have made more information about you public than what you had intended.

At the same time, Facebook has given users many granular controls over their privacy, more than what's available on other major social networks.
