Not that I’m promoting stalking, or saying you’re doing it all wrong, but I thought stalking was something like that scene from Friends, (the one where Phoebe accidentally ends up dating the stalker meant for her sister.) Okay, that’s an example of stalking going right, but still. In the present day there is no need to even leave your house, with the click of a few buttons we all seem to be doing that thing we call “Facebook stalking” from the comfort of our sofas. Adding ‘Facebook‘ in front of ‘stalking‘ does not make it okay girls and boys. You don’t even need to be on your sofa in fact, with the power of smartphones you can be walking down the street checking out what your ex did last Friday. Isn’t it all getting a bit weird? Studies have shown that we are all getting...

Dear Twitter, When I first saw you, it was love at first site. I knew we would connect. We connected. We continued staying connected. Until one day you closed down my account, god only knows for what reason. After you closed my account I wrote you a love letter, but you ignored me. I hated you for a while. I thought you were not fair, you were cold, you were evil. But then time heals all wounds. Years later, I proceeded to open up a new account. After all, bygones are bygones… Besides, there was a time when in all fairness we really connected… Just as expected, when I opened up my new account, you have sent me an email asking me to verify my email address. This I wouldn't really have minded, if it had worked. Firstly you ask me whether I am human (no, Twitter, I am an alien...

Dear Mr. Cutts, For the past year, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation has conducted an investigation into a set of business practices that are being used in the household goods moving industry. This investigation has documented a number of troubling practices that certain companies use to confuse and mislead consumers while they are shopping for the services of a moving company. Because some of these practices involved consumers’ use of Internet search engines, I am writing to share the findings of this investigation with you. Congress and law enforcement authorities have been working for years to protect American consumers from '‘bait and switch” moving scams, where moving companies agree to move consumers' goods for one price, but then dramatically...

Dear Nigerian Prince, Thank you for your e-mail. I am ever so sorry to hear that your funds are trapped. However as good as your claim sounds I have decided against it. Therefore you will not be receiving my bank account details. But I don’t want you to think I am making the wrong decision so please read on to find out all the reasons why I decided against taking you up on your wonderful offer. Reason One – You Cannot Spell Over the years I have received a number of e-mails from you and each one has been riddled with spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. It has made me doubt that you are in fact a prince. If you had the amount of money you say you have I would have thought you would be able to spell. It also alarms me that a prince or government minister – whichever you are has...

on Tuesday, 1 December 2009 at 18:23 originally published on Facebook It has been a great year for making the world more open and connected. Thanks to your help, more than 350 million people around the world are using Facebook to share their lives online. To make this possible, we have focused on giving you the tools you need to share and control your information. Starting with the very first version of Facebook five years ago, we've built tools that help you control what you share with which individuals and groups of people. Our work to improve privacy continues today. Facebook's current privacy model revolves around "networks" — communities for your school, your company or your region. This worked well when Facebook was mostly used by students, since it made sense that a...
