Have you read TODAY's newspaper?

TODAY as in Malaysian Today newspaper...not today's newspaper..haha..
Front page news!!!
"OH NO" Mum's On Facebook Too..but in my case...Dad's On Facebook too...and Blogspot...and Myspace...and Multiply..and...Flickr...i kinda lost track of how many websites he has registered himself into..

Caution: Parents on Facebook!!!

Haha..it's kinda funny when your parents are also into this kind of stuff...bizarre...but interesting..i mean it's kinda fun to have a cool Dad who is tech-savvy,enthusiastic to learn and get himself busy with new things.Rather than him just sitting at home doing nothing, better he occupies his free time doing something beneficial,right.....Moreover,you'll get to keep in touch with ur family members easier with the help from facebook.Menarik sangat...

However, problems will arise when your family suddenly commented on your latest personality quiz result that says " Tempat yang sesuai untuk anda berasmaradana..the result was
-Anda suka membuat kejutan pada pasangan anda, maka.... Tempat Yang Sesuai Untuk Anda Berasmaradana bersama pasangan anda adalah di Atas Sofa.. mungkin semasa sedang menonton TV hehehe ...

The quiz i took...hoho...lawak....

I love to take quizzes...they are just for fun btw...I bet my parents would understand...just that sometimes i would freak out if suddenly my dad commented on the quizzes i took,mind you "Intriguing,Exciting,Interesting quizzes"...Haha...Don't really care though...I noe some might get panic on the prospect of parents "invading" their social network and privacy....Well,i would agree to that..haha..Our anxiety about parents and relatives adding us as friends would be understandable.The easiest way to get out of this is to ignore our parent's and relatives' request,but but if we ignore their request,it would only incite their suspicion that we have something to hide...hurm...So now...i've learn my mistake...never publish applications that would freak out my family members.konon kan...

The upfront news inside is much more interesting...They mention that facebook might be fun but be careful not to be an entirely "open book" or you could face the music via a painful reality check.Some of us might not realize that when we press the allow button to install an application,we are actually allowing the developers to have access to all our personal data and might use the information for personal gain...howoe..

Personal datas such as:
1. name
2. profile pics
3. gender
4. birthday
5. hometown location
6. current location
7. email address
8. activities and interest
9. relationship status and interests
10. summer plans
11. Your user network affiliations
12. education and work history
13. political views

Haha...bnyk gak kan...I noe most people would answer " SO WHAT? ".i would too..so so what...i'm still a rockstar...i got my rock moves..and i don't need you..owh sorry..got carried away..

But it is a big deal though,realizing that u have handed over ur particulars which might seem unimportant but this trivial information may get u into trouble as a victim of identity theft...scary huh?

But..but..i love face-booking...It is an exciting way for most of us to stay in touch with our old friends...to see the changes in their life..from having flawless face to ehem2 face(haha x sedar diri nak ckp org..dia pown 2 kali 5)...from studying in highschool..to graduating with a bachelor degree...from the time your friends were still wearing their school uniform to the time they wear anything they can find in the market...so yeah...facebook does have its advantages..like a lot of them...
The best part about facebook is that we can directly chat with our friends...this is totally awesome when you compare it to friendster and myspace...so kudos to facebook!!!

Back to the identity theft again.To protect urself from this issue,u can try to put the setting on ur facebook to private.This will restrict certain people,strangers, from accessing ur profile, or other details about you such as pictures,videos,applications just to name a few.

Thanx...that'll be all for today...till next time on "Have you read TODAY's newspaper"...I am Nabil Aizat Abdul Rahman....reporting from TV Humma2...

hahah same here man... but generally for everyone, if you find that what your posting might be offensive to the family who are in your friends list, you can block them out, or anyone in that matter. there are amAAAAzingly many options and ways of blocking a person or a particular group (that btw you could create groups/seggregations from your friends list) from being able of viewing it/them. hahahha aku tau la da buat mah... WEYH byk nye aku bebel!
