Facebook warning page


While Facebook is an excellent means for business and social networking, we ask people to consider the following before linking to the facebook based groups listed below.


We do not advise against joining Facebook based groups – we empower you to make an informed decision to do so or not.

You cannot delete from cyberspace: multiple web archiving orgs preserve info you post FOREVER- its there even when you delete your FB account. Privacy settings don’ t block your participation in groups. Facebook history archives are a favorite tool for human resource businesses in profiling job applicants.

FB invites: work well because the recipient usually has some familiarity with you & trusts you. However,the invited person will never see this warning page and may unintentionally disclose publicly information they consider private. From an ethical perspective we consider the concept as wilful entrapment.

Facebook & Activism Facebook has been known to shut down Facebook based activist groups without warning, at critical stages of the campaign. – An example was the nosamsclub campaign opposing Walmart brand building on a native american sacred site. If Facebook shuts YOUR occupy group down whats your backup contact & communication strategy?

Facebook & Law Enforcement: As a USA based entity FB have obligations to allow authorities such as FBI CIA or Interpol access to Any info they require. Most if not all western countries police & secret police have access via reciprocity agreements. The speed with which some test info has been identified in posession of government security leads some researchers to believe that state security elements work permanently within Facebook.

Should you choose to join a facebook group or open a FB account we advise you to pay attention to the privacy settings.

Good points. Facebook is a business--it's easy enough to forget that. I wouldn't be surprised if many governments monitored FB activities, but the US government can use the Patriot Act to force companies to give up information. We shouldn't be afraid, though; we have the right to and should participate in peaceful resistance however we are inspired to. Thanks for this.

Yes Pam,

You are correct in your thinking. A little civil disobedience is OK if done in a calm and peaceful manner. This is a democractic right which has been neglected.

Kindest regards,
Mike
