Is Facebook damaging your reputation with sneaky political posts?

ZD Net

...you might be shocked to learn that Facebook is automatically publishing posts under your name and placing them at the top of the News feed for your friends. In some cases, these posts can include controversial political content that you would never voluntarily post.

Consider these two examples, which are typical of posts I’ve seen in my news feed over the past two weeks. (I’ve blurred the names to protect the innocent:)

This is ridiculous.

It's another lame Facebook "feature," not an espionage conspiracy. The political posts wouldn't have shown up if the people complaining to ZDNet didn't like politically-motivated pages. Notice that it says "Most Recent Post" above them.

I don't play, I commission the league.

LOL, downvoting for real?

I thought we were all about personal responsibility here. Don't like politically-skewed pages on Facebook if you don't want people to know your political beliefs, it's that simple.

I don't play, I commission the league.

attack me all u want, but ...

anyone using facebook is a FN idiot

Delete your Accounts

you are being monitored, your pictures, interests, everything is taken down, doesn't matter if were not dangerous, delete it, I know people who are deleting their accounts and aren't even into politics, or our movement and cause, their just sick and tired of it, it doesn't support true friendships, love, integrity, or honesty, it instead is designed to have you distrust your friends, make drama, waste time, and just their way of probing into your life. Rothschild bought 20%shares, from it. That alone makes me throw up, the upside though is that It has been great for our movement to pour information to the masses, hmmmm, I just contradicted myself lol

Delete Your Facebook Account

Delete your Facebook account, That will show Facebook.
It's easy to do, and stop being tracked by them.

Hand out cards/literature or tracks about the Federal Reserve Bank,
To people at the mall,supermarket,church and school or anywhere else
in public.

How to correct this and stop it from happening

When you use your facebook to make a comment on a non facebook website when you log into that site sometimes part of the agreement is that you allow that site to post on your feed. Sometimes there is an opt out.Always check the opt out if available.

If not after agreeing and posting whatever links or comment you make go into your APPS section in your facebook and remove the APP. They can no longer post on your behalf.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

How to correct this

stop using tracebook

How to get milk without "parterning" with the cow?

Volunteering information to FB is a danger. On the other hand some pages are limited viewing for visitors without their own FB identity. Such a thing can spin out of control. So how may a visitor view the "public" content (including user comments) without the danger of signing up?

Boycott evil, duhhh

When you see over and over that a website is clearly evil ...

You should NOT do business or support that website in any way shape or form. Those of you who continue to use Facebook say things like "i'm using their platform against them" ... but you're still using their platform. Facebook will use all your info / writing / links / behavior analysis / networks / "friends" / pictures / posts AGAINST YOU. So BOYCOTT this scumbag website NOW.

BOYCOTT FACEBOOK

So I should take down my Ron

So I should take down my Ron Paul signs, burn my "Liberty Minded" shirts and other accessories, lock away my pocket constitution, and only discuss and chat with the 'liberty movement' about liberty? Maybe I should cancel all plans to become a liberty delegate in the future since they can use that to 'target me' and make my life a living hell?

Look, if you want to deal with just those in the liberty movement, that's fine, but there are those of us that want to bring in more people, wake up MORE sheep.

Half the people I know who are the worst of 'sheep' spend over an hour a day on facebook. Every once in a while, I get a message from someone(or see them again in person) and they have a question about something I posted. People I never thought would 'wake up' starting to question what they hear cause they followed some 'trail' left by me.

This doesn't mean I'm blind to the fact that they are 'emboldened' by the numbers they pull in with people who continue to use their service. It's a fact I fully realize, yet seeing as how they aren't going to 'stop' by boycott anytime soon, with people like Justin Beiber having 30 times the followers of anyone truly important, I figure I might as well get some of those 'sleeping' individuals in their own 'dream-land'.

However, To clarify, I do not use facebook to communicate what I do in the movement itself, I simply do it to leave a place for those who are almost ready to 'wake up' to get their start. I wasn't always a Liberty lover, and more importantly, I didn't just 'find it' when I became a young adult. I WAS a neocon at one time, and I know I wouldn't be here if someone hadn't stepped outside their bubble and caught my eye.

And let's be realistic, 'they' already HAVE all our information, if you've been following anything they've been doing in the past 50 years, particularly since the Patriot Act.

Makes a lot of sense

Hey Summit County! You are correct but as John B Wells said there comes a point in time where you pick a side and don't run or hide in fear. We are on the side of LIBERTY AND FREEDOM FOR ALL! Hope to see you and the crew at the dredge soon.
Eagle County Out......

Oh so now you're 'brave"

... for staying on Facebook.

I reckon' not ...

I salute the Ron Paul facebook fans

I do think that they are brave. I've never opened a FB account and do feel a little guilty about not joining them.

Well, the facebook

elites were at the Bilderberg meeting this year so....

the only reason I go on facebook

is to post acerbic political content for everyone to see.

Agreed, I've gotten to many

Agreed, I've gotten to many friends of mine to take a second look at things through it to say that it's just "Pure evil, don't use it". I'm not a fool enough to think that it's creators are 'well-intended', but I know it's where many of the more 'tuned out' spend their days. I was quite proud of my mother when she said "I saw that you mentioned this..." when she never listens to me when I actually speak to her face to face. What you've got to remember is there are those that are still asleep, and the ones who are asleep will continue to use the things that we could just as easily 'shun' altogether.

at the same time you

are giving all your data up to the government data mining company.

I've had several folks tell

I've had several folks tell me that me that my political posts on facebook is what keeps them coming to facebook or that that my posts on facebook are their only source of current events news. So I'll keep it.

that's getting creepier by the day.

Get off facebook now

and your iq will eventually recover.

BREAKING: Congress voted no on Gay Marriages yesterday for the 216th time. My partner and I are tired of waiting for an act of Congress. LIKE if you are gay too.

Just look at you! collecting up votes, AGAIN!

I am an individual who chooses to up vote this post, my sexual orientation is irrevelant (or race or religion or socio-economic status, Etc)! Government has no business dictating private contracts. They have no authority, they just want you to think they do. Don't wait on government, Evil, just go get married, in the church, forest or dungeon of your choice, and create your own contract between each other. Intend to Disobey!
