  • Facebook is a data gathering device designed by boobies as an archive documenting the lives, activities and habitat of people that occupied Earth, once 'the change' finally happens to this planet.

    A galactic property record. Kind of like a yearbook.

    Now I see the rest of the article, which does state the Sweden center. That's why I hate Telegraph articles. They have the related articles box in the middle of the article and I always assume thats the entire article and I miss the rest of the article after the jump. It's incredibly stupid that they do that.
  • Hey, maybe I'll move back to Terrebonne.

    But as for Prinville, a big shout out to the Chandlers, Puckett, and Glovers.

    Welcome to the internet.
  • Ok, the pictures cataloged makes sense, but the text? Who is going to give a shiat what you had for lunch 30 years from now, or what kind of sounds your new puppy made?
  • There's a few things you can do about it.

    1. Be smart enough to not use Facebook
    2. Be smart enough to allegedly remove FB posts from others' pages that involve you or your image and a few extra to serve as a "warning" so it doesn't happen again
    3. Make sure suspicions about your alleged activity precede you
    4. Gloat (emotional profit)

    This apparently involves some degree of low-key cyber stalking, but who hasn't done that at least once in their lives?
  • This thread lacks pics of people doing things they would/will eventually regret having photos uploaded to the internet of.
  • The big question here is, why bother to waste money storing stuff no one gives a shirt about?

    It's like these bombproof shelters companies use to store their records, who is going to give a hoot I owed General Electric $45,23 in 1994 if we are all radioactive waste?

    This. I came for vomit pictures and am leaving very disappointed. .

    Not everyone, I do have a few friends who don't have cell phones. At any rate, at least make sure your friends aren't a-holes if they have a camera with them.

    Just own it and say "I done goofed", instead of typing all those words to try to deflect the blame.  It's faster, and you'll come across more like a righteous dude.
  • Facebook is a way to keep records on how much of an asshole you are

    When things change here on earth the upper crust will have records on you to know if you are a danger or are worthless burden on them or if you will make a good slave, enjoy posting yoir personal problems for the world to see
  • Eh, I don't feel enough self-importance to think anyone really cares what pictures of me are out there, nor do I take myself so seriously that if an embarrassing picture or two get out there that I really care. Life is too short to waste time worrying about if Big Brother cares about a picture of me with stupid hair from 1995.

    You are probably overconfident that you will never do something so stupid that it makes the news or that you might be falsely accused.
  •  Each is capable of storing an Exabyte of data, the equivalent of 250 million DVDs full of information

    wait, is that right?

    exabyte is 10 18 bytes, 1,000 petabytes, 1 million terabytes, 1,000 million gigabytes
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exabyte

    so  1000000000000000000  / 250 000 000 = 4 000 000 ; 4GB?

    yah, I guess that is close enough for a DVD-5 single layer
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD#Cap acity

    but if you went with DVD-9 (8.54 GB), which is more common I would think, that comes out more like 117?

    250 million sounds better tho -- still an inconceivable amount of pictures of your cats, vacations and ex-girlfriends

    It's bizarre to think that the default career path there is going to be working in a datacenter, instead of becoming a mop boy at the Les Schwab plant.  There's probably a lot of (east) Indians there now, too.

    There are so many things one could spend time worrying about in life. Of all the things I do worry about, those things are WAY down the list. I could spend all my time worry about IF or I could just live life.

    Considering the smartest and least vain of us do not use Facebook, they're bound to think very highly of us.

    Data mining and analytics for marketers, employers and governments. They will pay Facebook (and Google, Microsoft Bing, Pinterest WOW, FARK, Reddit etc) good money for the information gleaned from your online life

    Nobody provides anything online without some sort of payoff at the end.  Remember that when you fill out those "registration forms". Insanely long and legalese-filled TOS that nobody cares to read, (except for the EFF!) basically tell you anything you enter into "your" website can be sold to all kinds of third parties.

    But people don't seem to give a shiat about this loss of privacy. Especially the banal types that listen to that horrible auto-tune pop music these days.

  • The nerd in me wants to know what kind of storage system are they using.  Wikipedia uses a SWIFT cluster for all of their photos.  I know Facebook has been poking around OpenStack, wonder if they're using it for this.

    /even if you hate FB, the Open Compute Project they're leading is pretty cool
  • i was talking to my mother about blogs once and she seemed very confused about the whole thing. to her blogs are the same as books and she is worried that we will someday be literally knee deep in blogs, drowning in them. makes me laugh everytime i think it. if she read this article i think she would feel her opinion is valid.

    Imagine politics in 30 years or so.  We will be able to go back and catalog every second of of a candidate's life from the time they were a fetus on facebook to come up with ridiculous attack ads.
  • Never in one million years would I be stupid enough to join facebook. It is the scourge of the earth EXCEPT I do love how it is outing so many stupid people. Particularly hypocrite republican politicians.
  • lol, just found jmr61;s Facebook page and Twitter.

    See, I have cousins on the other side of the country, and I'd never have gotten to know them very well without it because none of us can afford to travel that far very often. I also get to see my friend's vacation photos (which are actually INTERESTING and/or pretty) and watch their kids grow up since I moved away from most of them. I literally do not have time to call all the people I know very often, plus I don't like being on the phone anyway, so it's been nice to have a way to keep up with them. I really don't understand the hate for it, but maybe I just know lots of cool people who aren't stupid about it (although there are a few of the stupid on my group, I am aware).

    /shrug

    Oh, also, the national parks all have pages, and I get to live vicariously through them since I can't afford that much travel...
  • I am very, very grateful to have grown up before cell phones and digital cameras.

    FWIW I rather like Facebook. I post the odd photo and activity and a few times a week check to see what my friends are up to. It works well. OTOH if your friends are a bunch of farking idiots, well, Facebook is not the problem.
