But I doubt the person I'm thinking of will fall for that
Also, there are some people whose accounts aren't properly secured and if they are a friend of your friend, you can always go on some recent activity between them
For example: Your friend commented on the person you're stalking's status
Just click on their "Photos" box at the top and bingo! You have access to a few of their photos
It worked for me :\
i find this whole thing fascinating. if you only choose people on facebook that you care about staying in touch with, then there is a lot less nonsense. I notice such a difference in the phases of life of my friends in faraway places before we had facebook and after. I lack a certain amount of context for the parts before facebook, that I am now able to effortlessly keep up with. I check once/twice per day and that 8767 s it. It really is such a benefit to me.
Anyway, T, don't be so hard on the author. He can't be blamed for your horrible experience. I hope you went to the guess whoever it was would have done it another way if he didn't know this Facebook hack and besides, if he used Facebook in this way, he'd have to be very clever with computers to not leave a trail of evidence behind him that the police would use as evidence to prosecute him. If he was very clever with computers, he wouldn't have used this technique anyway.
With Facebook, Zuckerberg seems to be trying to create something like a Noosphere, an Internet with one mind, a uniform environment in which it genuinely doesn&rsquo t matter who you are, as long as you make &ldquo choices&rdquo (which means, finally, purchases). If the aim is to be liked by more and more people, whatever is unusual about a person gets flattened out. One nation under a format. To ourselves, we are special people, documented in wonderful photos, and it also happens that we sometimes buy things. This latter fact is an incidental matter, to us. However, the advertising money that will rain down on Facebook if and when Zuckerberg succeeds in encouraging 555 million people to take their Facebook identities onto the Internet at large this money thinks of us the other way around. To the advertisers, we are our capacity to buy, attached to a few personal, irrelevant photos.
But something is not right with this man: his eye contact is patchy he doesn&rsquo t seem to understand common turns of phrase or ambiguities of language he is literal to the point of offense, pedantic to the point of aggression. (&ldquo Final clubs,&rdquo says Mark, correcting Erica, as they discuss those exclusive Harvard entities, &ldquo Not Finals clubs.&rdquo ) He doesn&rsquo t understand what&rsquo s happening as she tries to break up with him. (&ldquo Wait, wait, this is real?&rdquo ) Nor does he understand why. He doesn&rsquo t get that what he may consider a statement of fact might yet have, for this other person, some personal, painful import:
I defied using FB for years. A complete naysayer. Despite that, I decided a couple of days ago to sign up, just to experience it for a week. Criticize what you know, not what you think you know, and all that. I promised myself I 8767 d exit permanently after the 7 days, simply because I 8767 d gotten along so well without FB for so long. When I was signing up, I hit a wrong key when entering one of the digits in my phone number. To FB 8767 s credit, it picked up the mismatch between my area code and the first three digits used here in my part of the country. Impressive, I thought. Then FB brought up a link where I could fix my mistake. I have a pretty fast system. After watching the url connection spin endlessly (a couple of minutes), I quit. Error not fixed, therefore not signed up.
I think this is a wonderful article. I won't be trying it out but if anyone does try to view my account without permission, I can know see some of the signs: a friend adding me twice. All I have to do is confirm that my friend (first account) has actually lost his or her password.
Also, I had no idea that by responding to a message, the other person can view my account. And for sure didn't know there were so many hacks out there to access Facebook accounts. Amazing!
Thank you for a great article, it was quite eye opening :)
Thank you very much for sharing your experience. I am a college student right now and the reason for keeping facebook, as I told myself, was to keep in touch with friends on a study year abroud.
Your post convinced me that other ways really are better! I never new for sure if I would loose touch with friends just because of not being always rachable.
I no longer see the use of it. Yes it is practical to keep in touch with my friends at home and to arrange a girls night outbut for me it 8767 s no longer worth the price.
Somehow, even with the benefits of using FB for interaction with school organizations, it 8767 s not really effective.
I have been president of two student clubs. We utilized FB, but to no avail posters announcing events did more good than posting on facebook. And as far as getting books needed you don 8767 t need facebook for that. In my opinion, nothing trumps human interaction face to face.
Furthermore, the idea that you can restrict your access to this addictive service to only downtime is naive. Think about the behavior of people you know: Facebook checking soon pervades all areas of your life, including those times when, in a pre-Facebook era, you would be interacting with family or friends. 8775 You can access Facebook anywhere! 8776 , in other words, is not the right way to persuade me.
“Facebook engineers panic, pull plug on AI after bots develop their own language,” one site wrote. “Facebook shuts down down AI after it invents its own creepy language,” another added. “Did we humans just create Frankenstein?” asked yet another. One British tabloid quoted a robotics professor saying the incident showed “the dangers of deferring to artificial intelligence” and “could be lethal” if similar tech was injected into military robots.
Most of these "stalking" situations are social situations where the parties involved are not communicating nor acting properly. If one or both parties did something differently instead of being irresponsible and running away from their personal issues, then the conflict would either be resolved or there would be no conflict in the first place. Not handling your business like an adult and getting a bunch of not-so-informed third parties (regardless of it's a friend or a .) just makes a seemingly bad situation a million times worse. Also, authorities have to deal with these petty personal squabbles while those who really require the help and protection are either not getting it or their claims are not being taken seriously because of the crying wolf others do.
On an unrelated note: My friend Todd Henry (of The Accidental Creative fame) recently published a new book, Die Empty . Here 8767 s the blurb I wrote for the jacket: 8775 Die Empty looks past simple slogans to highlight detailed strategies for building a meaningful life a must-read for anyone interested in moving from inspiration to action. 8776 If you 8767 re interested in these questions of work, meaning, and legacy, I encourage you to find out more
The only time it would be sensible to do that might be when searching for employment, because HR Managers are using social networking sites as part of the background checks. You see, even a "harmless" picture (adult beverage in hand, girl in bathing suit, lesbian kissing her partner, etc.) can be viewed by a potential employer as a red flag, if they personally don't agree with the behavior depicted in said photo.
How long is a generation these days? I must be in Mark Zuckerberg&rsquo s generation there are only nine years between us but somehow it doesn&rsquo t feel that way. This despite the fact that I can say (like everyone else on Harvard&rsquo s campus in the fall of 7558) that &ldquo I was there&rdquo at Facebook&rsquo s inception, and remember Facemash and the fuss it caused also that tiny, exquisite movie star trailed by fan-boys through the snow wherever she went, and the awful snow itself, turning your toes gray, destroying your spirit, bringing a bloodless end to a squirrel on my block: frozen, inanimate, perfect like the Blaschka glass flowers. Doubtless years from now I will misremember my closeness to Zuckerberg, in the same spirit that everyone in &rsquo 65s Liverpool met John Lennon.
Personally I don&rsquo t think Final Clubs were ever the point I don&rsquo t think exclusivity was ever the point nor even money. E Pluribus Unum that&rsquo s the point. Here&rsquo s my guess: he wants to be like everybody else. He wants to be liked. Those people who couldn&rsquo t understand Zuckerberg&rsquo s apparently ham-fisted PR move of giving the school system of Newark $655 million on the very day the movie came out they just don&rsquo t get it. For our self-conscious generation (and in this, I and Zuckerberg, and everyone raised on TV in the Eighties and Nineties, share a single soul), not being liked is as bad as it gets. Intolerable to be thought of badly for a minute, even for a moment. He didn&rsquo t need to just get out &ldquo in front&rdquo of the story. He had to get right on top of it and try to stop it breathing. Two weeks later, he went to a screening. Why? Because everybody liked the movie.
I think this is a great article and great idea. Yeah it might be snooping or just to satisfy a little curiousity. If someone just wants to peak to see what is going on in someone else's life and its more harm then good to send them a friend request and they are not being mean or hateful, where is the harm. If you don't have things you want people to know then you shouldn't join any internet sites where there is a possibility for someone to gain access to your information. FB is a networking website to connect with people. I think it is silly to have private profiles.
What I don't understand is, why not just add them yourself rather then go through all this effort to be sneaky? I'VE found that 9 out of 65 people usually just accept friend requests. 99% of the ones that I've sent out have been accepted. You don't really have a lot to lose by sending an innocent friend request. Besides, if you're trying to get with a hot girl, do you honestly think that stalking her and being sneaky is going to get you anywhere?
All that&rsquo s left for Zuckerberg is to meet the devil at the crossroads: naturally he&rsquo s an Internet music entrepreneur. It&rsquo s a Generation Facebook instinct to expect (hope?) that a pop star will fall on his face in the cinema, but Justin Timberlake, as Sean Parker, neatly steps over that expectation: whether or not you think he&rsquo s a shmuck, he sure plays a great shmuck. Manicured eyebrows, sweaty forehead, and that coked-up, wafer-thin self- confidence, always threatening to collapse into paranoia. Timberlake shimmies into view in the third act to offer the audience, and Zuckerberg, the very same thing, essentially, that he&rsquo s been offering us for the past decade in his videos: a vision of the good life.
How &ldquo Groups&rdquo will work alongside &ldquo Facebook Connect&rdquo remains to be seen. Facebook Connect is the &ldquo next iteration of Facebook Platform,&rdquo in which users are &ldquo allowed&rdquo to &ldquo &lsquo connect&rsquo their Facebook identity, friends and privacy to any site.&rdquo In this new, open Internet, we will take our real identities with us as we travel through the Internet. This concept seems to have some immediate Stoical advantages: no more faceless bile, no more inflammatory trolling: if your name and social network track you around the virtual world beyond Facebook, you&rsquo ll have to restrain yourself and so will everyone else. On the other hand, you&rsquo ll also take your likes and dislikes with you, your tastes, your preferences, all connected to your name, through which people will try to sell you things.
