Vic is now on FaceBook

Vic on FaceBook

In May 2010 I noticed that many hits on this Website were coming in from this nebulous, amorphous thing called FaceBook, so I looked into what FaceBook was, and wound up creating my own free FaceBook page.

I have no visibility into who is accessing this site, but I do have access to the numbers of hits on various pages, and where (on the Internet) those numbers linked in from. I'm still figuring FaceBook out, but anyway, if you have a free FaceBook account, now you can go there from here, as well as here from there.

I noticed the same thing on a smaller scale from Twitter, fooled around with it for awhile, and decided I didn't like it, because it's so restrictive. I don't think it's for literate people; it’s too brief, and uses entirely too much "shorthand" English for my taste. I now have a Twitter account out there, but I hardly ever get on it and don't do anything much with it.

FaceBook is kind of neat, and since I opened my own page on it I’ve discovered lots of personal friends and relatives that I didn’t even know were on FaceBook. It’s an interesting little e-world of its own.

There is a danger, however: it can be an addictive activity, and thus a time robber. My own spare time that I use in computer activity is supposed to be spent on adding things to this website, not gabbing with friends and getting distracted by other stuff. So FaceBook requires a little prioritizing and a little self discipline, unless you've got all the time in the world. It is very easy to lose track and spend an hour when you only intended to spend 10 minutes.

If you already have a free FaceBook account of your own, you can click on the little FaceBook button at the very bottom of any page on this site, and then include your comments and "share" that page on the "wall" page of your own FaceBook account.


Do not expect interaction with Vic on FaceBook.

See comments down below. 

I do not engage in long conversations and spend little or no time on FaceBook due to the insecure environment. 

Social Media is just too insecure for my taste.  If you want to communicate with any actual responses from me, you have to do it here, after whatever webpage interests you.  This is a secure site, and all comments are examined for decency, civility and reasonableness before they are posted here. 

Every new article published here, whether authored by me, you or anyone else, is then linked to from a new Catholic American Thinker  E-Zine (electronic e-mail newsletter) publication, from my Facebook account and from my Twitter account, the day it is published to the world.  Newly published articles also go to the top of the website BLOG roll. 

So, posting links to all newly published articles is just about the only Social Media stuff I do.  So don't be offended if I don't respond to any comments on any open Social Media.  I just don't spend any real time out there. 

Blessings.

The following is a “bloglet” I submitted yesterday regarding my FaceBook account. I now put a copy here so that a permanent record will still exist after yesterday’s entry rolls off the blog list, and so that anyone who wants to may comment about it.

Friday, August 05, 2011 Notice to all my FaceBook friends: One week from today, I will be permanently closing my FaceBook account. FaceBook is too insecure for my taste, and FaceBook provides no help whatsoever with help against intrusions by hackers. A foul-mouthed Marxist and/or a foul-mouthed Moslem has co-opted my name and my profile pic, and is sending nasty messages to my friends, in my name, as if the messages were coming from me. There is no way this person could be logged on as me with my password; and there is no way he could be logged on as me at the same time I am logged on. He just has some tricky way of showing my face and my name on his messages to you. If any of you receive any such message, know that it was not from me. One week should be long enough notice for all of you to be aware. You can still contact me through my own website, which is much more secure and under my control. One week from today, any message any of you receive from me will most certainly not be from me, because my account will no longer exist. God bless.

Sorry that those who demand freedom for themselves can't respect yours.

Fr. Trott: Neither Marxists nor Moslems can long tolerate free speech, or liberty, or even free thought. False ideologies cannot stand in the light of the Truth.

Vic – If you do that, your facebook account named Vic Biorseth will be open and available for someone else to claim. If your tormentor were to grab it, he could do more damage in your name than he can now. Do not close your facebook account. Lock it up somehow, but don’t close it. Also warn all your friends to change their security to not allow anyone except friends to comment or post to their walls. Just a word to the wise.

… Hmmm … I’ll have to think about that for awhile. I don’t even want to mess with FaceBook any more. But I don’t want anyone else using my name on another account either. Will share this as a warning to my friends. Thanks.

Regards,

Vic

Vic, you said Facebook provided no help whatsoever. What exactly did Facebook say about all of this?

Brenda: I have been unable to talk to a human being at FaceBook; all I get is autoresponder emails, and re-direction back to FaceBook Help, which would be better named FaceBook Help Yourself. Here’s the typical FaceBook email response:

Hi, Thanks for contacting us. If you have concerns or questions regarding your privacy and the profile redesign, please visit our Help Center: http://www.facebook.com/help/?topic=new_profile We’re constantly trying to improve Facebook, so it's important that we hear from our users. Unfortunately, we can’t respond to your emails individually, but we are reading them. We appreciate you taking the time to write to us. If there are any specific changes you recommend, please let us know. To get updates on how to control your sharing on Facebook, and to give feedback on privacy, "Like" the Facebook and Privacy Page: http://www.facebook.com/fbprivacy If you are having any problems with your account, please refer back to our Help page (http://www.facebook.com/help.php) where you'll find information about Facebook as well as the answers to many of your questions. Thanks again for your feedback. -The Facebook Team

And that’s it. I got a lot of immediate attention and help from SBI!, who I have my website with. There was an immediate and ongoing dialogue established with them, and while the problem proved to be outside SBI! and thus not resolvable by them, they nevertheless provided invaluable insight and advice in the matter. But I got nothing, except the above, from the so-called FaceBook Team. See My Sincere Apologies for where this all began.

Regards,

Vic

My dear FaceBook Friends: Please do not be offended, but I am no longer conversing on FaceBook, for it has proved to be too insecure. If any of you get FaceBook messages that look like they are from me, rest assured they are not from me, but from someone pretending to be me. The ONLY thing I intend to post on FaceBook in the future is to SHARE new articles from my website as they are completed. I will hit the SHARE button on the new webpage to share it on FaceBook, and that is it. If anyone wants to converse about anything, and we don’t really know each other, then we will converse through comments on my website, or not at all. If you know me, email me or call me. If you know me and you don’t have my email, call me, and I’ll whitelist your email address and we can converse that way if you wish. Sorry to be so uncommunicative, but FaceBook is no help in this matter, and I have a lot more security and control over my own website. God bless.

Regards,

Vic

Vic, I notice the "Like" button and count disappeared off your upper right column.  Did you do that, or did something happen?

Megan:

I did it.  I noticed that some page counts were going down rather than up.  How can anyone "unlike" a page?  I don't think it is possible.  At least not legitimately possible.  These counts were not being changed by me, and they were not being changed by SBI!, so the only possibility left is that something was happening through FaceBook again.  And it is impossible to get help or talk to a human being at FaceBook.  So, I just took the button and the count off my site. 

I don't even want to play in the FaceBook sandbox any more because it is not sanitary enough for me.  Like Twitter, the more you look at it, the more vulgarity you see.  It's just too open to crude language and potential malicious hackers for joyful participation. 

But I am taking Curmudgeon's advice and leaving the account open so no one can take it over and pretend to be me. 

Regards,

Vic
