FB = CIA : Half True @ Half Lies – You Decide: Part II ;)

So there have been some conspiracy about FB being under CIA etc.

And if we go deeper there might be claims relate that relate this to Jews etc.

But the main issue is actually the privacy issue which FB have been famous of changing its setting to a limit that there is no privacy despite making it private only to a certain group of friends  – and yet, encourages people to upload & share among these group of friends but still PRIVATE things on Facebook which they have  rights to own it???

With lots of weirdos like stalkers ( threatening or not coz i know some are just secret admirers @ people who enjoys looking at other people’s FB or wall post & whatever post they posted on FB – which i am still trying to figure out how to privatized all this to certain people – if only there is settings where whatever i post is only visible to the people i choose to share with ) …and other typers of weirdos usually the cyber criminals or real criminals in the form of pedophile’s, rapist, players (yes they are guilty for playing on peoples heart!) & the list goes on changing their strategies to internet esp FB.

The internet will and always be an opened threat to the user if they are not careful enough with what they share. Plus, its kind of annoying as well to read crappy status which I’m sure most of u know what kind of status they put on FB right? And some would go to an extend posting humilating, pornographic & offensive things on the net. Some, shares thing just about too much information that it gets kind of awkward to see it on FB (though we don’t intend to see it, but it appears on the news feed – that one i really want to privatize it!! )

Another thing is that, the wall seems like a BIG wall where everyone can see what other people wall on your FB but when you change it into ‘Only Me’ can read it – NOBODY can post ANYTHING on the wall. Huh???!!  And u have to change back to it being public again or you can easily Edit your friends by grouping them under a list of people whom u choose to make it Public or Private only if your friends have not reached more than 100 instead 1000 which somehow there are people who likes to randomly add strangers just to show that they have a LOT of friends but probably less than 10 who keeps in touch with them regularly (thats the reason why i deleted some of my ‘friends’ who is not ‘friends’ – friendship wise & privacy concern )

Since I have mentioned it, its due to the same privacy concern that thankfully in a positive perspective, I can finally choose who I want to add or reject (despite rejecting some weirdos soooo many times!! ), meaning I have the RIGHTS to CHOOSE my friends that I want to stay in touch with and not randomly add them but don’t know them personally. Therefore, most of the people in my friend list usually people that I would at least know them though they may not be a close friend of mine but a mix of school mate/coursemate/workmate etc which i choose not to specify how i know them everytime i add anyone. There’s just too many of them for me to edit  it & i dont want & need to tell the whole world to know i know this and that  person from this and that coz enough that we both know how we know each other. Its none of the world business anyways & plus Who Cares??? LOL!!

Talking about business, I usally rejects those who is trying to sell things/business to me esp those showing off lots and lots of money that they claim can be gained easily. Nothing is Free in this world & i bet its just another MLM scheme. No offense but I don’t like getting money that way, i prefer hard work where i know where my money comes from and not from a pyramid where the people on the top gets more before whatever remainings reached down the pyramid. Though, that doesn’t mean i don’t add other business/products, it depends on the product itself, if its a reliable product which i intend to buy, yes i will add but the rest, i’d rather not let myself be Tagged on every product they sell. Seriously not interested of that kind of advertisement ( to some business people in my FB, you are allowed to do so since I choose to add you so I am interested in seeing your latest product)

And the latest Privacy issue which FB now recommends to mention what phone people are using esp the fact that they have the rights to automatically (if we choose to accept this service) where they are using FB if i’m not mistaken will reallllly puts the user itself at high risk of being stalked by @ the worst the user house be broken into only bcoz they mention that they are currently on vacation/not at home,just went out/ALONE at home – if we were to look at the types of people being raped by – most of the people who rape them are usually people they know so if these people are in our FB – no doubt these people (if not as rapist but other types of criminals who turn out to know you) can be the ones coming after you – for any reason that may endanger us!

But whether or not the conspiracy is as i mentioned half true or half lies, when we combine each half of it into one, its actually goes down to ONE thing, PRIVACY issue!!  Some may choose to limit their information & choose what they want to share, some will write almost everything about themselves (no offence but not everyone wants to know about you) Gosh…how do i change the news feed???!!!

Whatever you choose to share, choose wisely coz you’ll never know whatever you share be a target of an ‘uninvited friends’

So choose to share it wisely,ok?!  😉

p/s: And FB, if u are reading this. PLEASE repair your FB chat!! Its frustrating to be offline suddenly!!

Facebook: The CIA Conspiracy: Half True @ Half Lies ? – You decide ;)

*I am not against Facebook but more on its Privacy issue..!!!*

Facebook has 20 million users worldwide, is worth billions of dollars and, if internet sources are to be believed, was started by the CIA.

The social networking phenomenon started as a way of American college students to keep in touch. It is rapidly catching up with MySpace, and has left others like Bebo in its wake.

But there is a dark side to the success story that’s been spreading across the blogosphere. A complex but riveting Big Brother-type conspiracy theory which links Facebook to the CIA and the US Department of Defence.

The CIA is, though, using a Facebook group to recruit staff for its very sexy sounding National Clandestine Service.

Checking out the job ads
does require a Facebook login, so if you haven’t joined the site – or are worried that CIA spooks will start following you home from work -check them out on the agency’s own site.

The story starts once Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had launched, after the dorm room drama that’s led to the current court case.

Facebook’s first round of venture capital funding ($US500,000) came from former Paypal CEO Peter Thiel. Author of anti-multicultural tome ‘The Diversity Myth’, he is also on the board of radical conservative group VanguardPAC.

The second round of funding into Facebook ($US12.7 million) came from venture capital firm Accel Partners. Its manager James Breyer was formerly chairman of the National Venture Capital Association, and served on the board with Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm established by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1999. One of the company’s key areas of expertise are in “data mining technologies”.

Breyer also served on the board of R&D firm BBN Technologies, which was one of those companies responsible for the rise of the internet.

Dr Anita Jones joined the firm, which included Gilman Louie. She had also served on the In-Q-Tel’s board, and had been director of Defence Research and Engineering for the US Department of Defence.

She was also an adviser to the Secretary of Defence and overseeing the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is responsible for high-tech, high-end development.

It was when a journalist lifted the lid on the DARPA’s
Information Awareness Office
that the public began to show concern at its information mining projects.

Wikipedia’s IAO page says: “the IAO has the stated mission to gather as much information as possible about everyone, in a centralised location, for easy perusal by the United States government, including (though not limited to) internet activity, credit card purchase histories, airline ticket purchases, car rentals, medical records, educational transcripts, driver’s licenses, utility bills, tax returns, and any other available data.”.

Not surprisingly, the backlash from civil libertarians led to a Congressional investigation into DARPA’s activity, the Information Awareness Office lost its funding.

Now the internet conspiracy theorists are citing Facebook as the IAO’s new mask.

Parts of the IAO’s technology round-up included ‘human network analysis and behaviour model building engines’, which Facebook’s massive volume of neatly-targeted data gathering allows for.

Facebook’s own Terms of use state: “by posting Member Content to any part of the Web site, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to facebook an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license to use, copy, perform, display, reformat, translate, excerpt and distribute such information and content and to prepare derivative works of, or incorpoate into other works, such information and content, and to grant and authorise sublicenses of the foregoing.

And in its equally interesting privacy policy: “Facebook may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the Facebook service through the operation of the service (eg. photo tags) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalised experience. By using Facebook, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.”

Is the CIA really providing the impetus and the funding behind the monster growth of this year’s biggest dot com success story? Maybe only the men with the nice suits and ear pieces can answer that.

Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else life.

Don’t be trapped by dogma which is living by the result of other people’s thinking.

Don’t let the noise of others opinion drown out your own inner voice.

And most important, have the courage to follow your heart & intuition.

They somehow already know what you truly want to become.

Everything else is secondary

– Steve Job-

For the people of knowledge & in search of knowledge :)

I’ve seen this video before & i think i shared this back then.

Yet, i was in search again for something and came across this again.

So i feel like sharing it again for those who haven’t seen this yet.

And for those in search also, no matter what it is,

God willing, i hope this will help you start somewhere.

Verily, for every difficulties comes ease 🙂

One night I decided to really trying get this spiritual mood happening and I’m sure probably some of you had heard this story before, so I apologize

I lit the candle, I had the window open

I had the curtain strung, and I was trying to get that really spiritual feeling

It was a nice summer night in Melbourne, summer that can get you heaven

And I was sitting there and I thinking “this is it..” you know, this is the night..

I have been.. you know.. investigating all the spiritual proofs,

all the scientific proofs about the fact the mountain of the piths.,

about, you know, how the embryo develop inside the woman,

all this amazing proofs, but I still needed that little push.

It was like I was at the edge of the cliff, I was ready to jump, I just need the push

So I was sitting there, sitting quite, I was reading Quran, I stopped,

I said, Allah.. this is my moment, this is the time I’m about to jump into Islam,

all I need is a sign, just a little sign, nothing huge, maybe a bolter brightly,

You know.. maybe.. the house could fall down.. or something you know..

something just small, small for you man, you created this, come on.

So I sat there, I was waiting for the candle to start lighting up to form mating high like in the movie.

Then I say, “ok.. GO!”

And Subhanallah nothing, absolutely nothing happens,

I was really disappointed to be honest,

so I sat there and I sad, Allah.. this is your chance, I’m here. I’m no going no where.

I’ll give you another chance, okay maybe you busy, you know..

daytime over the other side of the world, all of the stuff going on..

maybe this time I could just leave kaabah flooring, you know, something small..?

the canlde.. Lets forget that, I do where could find that, so I don’t care, just anything.

So I say “ok, GO!”

And Subhanallah nothing absolutely happens,

and I mean I couldn’t even said urr.. that was it, that creep that was sat on the wall, that was it.

Absolutely nothing happens, I was really disappointed, I was gasses.

I was sitting there, thinking “this is it..”, you know, this was my last chance, Islam..

and I really, I haven’t found it.

I put back the Quran, and turn back to where I was reading.

Subhanallah, the very next verse, on the next page;

“For those of you who ask for signs, have we not shown you enough already, look around you, look at the stars, look at the sun, look at water, these are the signs for people of knowledge.”
