How Facebook Learned Rape is Bad for Business

Slanted account, but has many facts.

"But on May 27th, Facebook finally flinched. And then it cratered,
caved and capitulated in the course of a single phone call after a
one-week #fbrape campaign by the smartest feminists on the planet. "

Why Does My Facebook Say "For Security Reasons Your Account Is Temporarily Locked"?

http://science.opposingviews.com/facebook-say-for-security-reasons-account-temporarily-locked-22505.html

NOTE: This article links to important Facebook information on this subject.

Being unable to sign into your Facebook account blocks you from
messages, friends' updates and photos – but that's not always a bad
thing.

Since it's possible that another person could try to get into your
account and access your information, Facebook takes account security
very seriously. You don't want a stranger going through your messages,
posting status updates or changing the settings on your apps. The only
downside to this level of account safety is that sometimes you have to
take steps to access your account after a potential security threat.

HTC "First" drags down HTC Executives and Facebook Cache'

Earlier we heard how the smartphone especially made with Facebook as a major feature -- died.

The story starts (on 5/8) with AT&T trying to pitch it as a $0.99 phone before the weekend starts. (That's right 99 cents for a cellphone). Then it continues (on 5/13) with AT&T no longer offering the phone. Now (on 5/24), in just over two (2) weeks - it appears to be DOA (Dead on Arrival).

To complete the story, the CEO said he would quit (and here), if this is not successful. He has quit - as well as a many HTC executives.

Moral: Don't put your eggs in the Facebook basket.

Restaurant reopens after bad reality TV experience

http://money.msn.com/business-news/article.aspx?feed=AP&date=20130522&id=16511061

PHOENIX (AP) - A Scottsdale, Ariz. restaurant reopened for business
Tuesday night to good reviews after it temporarily shut its doors
following an embarrassing reality TV experience.

Wife and husband Amy and Samy Bouzaglo recently invited the popular
makeover show "Kitchen Nightmares" to their restaurant, Amy's Baking
Co., after years of bad online reviews from unhappy customers. The
Bouzaglos complained on the show that they were the victims of online
bullying, but host and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay agreed with the
bad reviews. He declared the food at the upscale pizzeria undercooked
and poorly seasoned. The Bouzaglos got angry with Ramsay and he left
the restaurant before making it over — a first for his show.

Amy's Baking Co. temporarily closed last week after the episode aired
and hundreds of "Kitchen Nightmares" fans began leaving angry comments
on the restaurant's Facebook page.

Facebook Inc (FB): The Good and The Bad

CAUTION: popup happy website

Don’t Vent on Facebook or Twitter during Divorce [Video]

From the article:
Facebook can legally be compelled by subpoena to provide basic account information. However, federal law prohibits the social media giant from disclosing user content (messages, timeline postings, photos) in response to a civil subpoena. Depending on privacy settings, content may be visible only to friends or to the public. With no fault divorces available in all 50 states and D.C., the value of online evidence of infidelity is minimal.

How Zuckerberg learned from bad decisions (or did he)


Mark Zuckerberg made a very bad decision in 2010: He focused Facebook's engineers on (..) an app version of Facebook that (...) would go away. (It) didn't. The buggy and slow Facebook app soon became "one of the biggest mistakes we've ever made," Zuckerberg said in a Fortune magazine cover story (...)
