Facebook Breaking Privacy Laws

As reported by privacy commissioner at Canada, Facebook is breaking privacy laws by passing private information to application developers. The report says that the information given to users about privacy is always either incomplete or too confusing. In order to comply with Canada’s privacy laws Facebook needs to take much greater responsibility.

Privacy commissioner Jennifer Stoddart says

“It’s clear that privacy issues are top of mind for Facebook, and yet we found serious privacy gaps in the way the site operates,”

The investigation, prompted by a complaint from the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic, identified several areas where Facebook needs to better address privacy issues and bring its practices in line with Canadian privacy law.

Facebook has been seriously violating many of its terms and they have been reported by many renowned newspapers, publications and magazines.

Dawn a renowned newspaper at Pakistan says

You willingly post your personal and professional information, publish all the one hundred and six photos which you took at your annual dinner, and discuss the latest happenings in your college with all your friends. All this while, you may be totally oblivious to where this information is being stored and how it will be used.

The recent brouhaha surrounding Facebook and the way it changed its privacy policy, is by no means the only controversy which has enveloped this particular social networking service. Facebook has been the focus of quite a lot of criticism over the years. And yes, these concerns relate to privacy and privacy only.

the new conditions stated that Facebook would retain the information of its users, even if the users delete it from Facebook

Techcrunch also reported in 2007 that the source code of Facebook was leaked and was published on blogs. Facebook has become need of many of us and we even rely on Facebook for our businesses and simply can not stop using it. Some serious actions should be taken against Facebook so it may start acting responsible.

Update Facebook, Twitter & 40 Other Networks Via RSS Feed

It has become a need of a blogger to keep the fans of his blog updated via all the major social networks. The major ones being Twitter and Facebook. You can now easily update all of these using some free cool services.

Updating Twitter:

Twitter can be updated easily via a service called TwitterFeed. You just need to create an account, authorize it to your twitter id, provide it with your feed URL and yum it’s already feeding your twitter. Another cool thing about Twitterfeed is that it gives you real-time stats about your feed items too.

Updating Facebook Profiles, Pages and Other 40 Networks:

All of this can be done by using Ping.fm and TwitterFeed together. Ping.fm allows you to update statuses of 40 services at the same time. You only need to authorize all those networks to your Ping.fm account once and then you can easily update multiple networks via Ping.fm’s text field. The drawback to this service is that it only updates your statuses through text and not through RSS feed. This is where TwitterFeed comes to play. TwitterFeed, apart from feeding to Twitter also feeds to Ping.fm which then updates your statues on all those networks.

How to Proceed:

  1. Create your Ping.fm account for free here.
  2. You will be shown list of networks. Add the ones you like. I am adding Facebook Fan Pages to continue with the tutorial.
  3. Before Ping.fm can post to your Facebook fan page, you need to add the Ping.fm application to your Facebook account. Allow the access to application and provide it with the Ping.fm key.
  4. Now you need to add the app to fan page too to link it with the ping.fm account. To do so click here. Select add to pages from the menu. Once you click on that a window will show you the pages you own. Select the ones you want to link to the ping.fm
  5. After that you will need to grant some permissions which can be done here.
  6. Both the accounts are perfectly linked but your status still might not update if you haven’t allowed the application to post stories to your wall.  Edit application settings and make sure you have allowed “publish to streams” and “post stories to the wall”.
  7. You can test now if the status updates via ping.fm by trying to update it through ping.fm’s dashboard.
  8. If the status doesn’t update, please try troubleshoot the problem at ping.fm’s support.
  9. If the status updates manually, you are all ready to automate it via TwitterFeed.
  10. Create a TwitterFeed account or sign in.
  11. Create new feed.
  12. Select ping.fm in “Create feed to”.
  13. Provide your Ping.fm key.
  14. Provide it with the feed URL.
  15. Make sure to have same methods selected in both TwitterFeed and Ping.fm e.g both should be “Status updates” or both should be “Micro blogs” etc.
  16. Done. Have fun feeding all the social networks.

If you come across any problems, you can drop the comments here but I will highly recommend you to search about it their support.
