Ad block plus cures this filth

0 |

i don't get ads on the internet. adblock plus plugin annihilates them. i had adblock turned off for a while before and the internet was a slowed up fucking mess. a video ad before almost every youtube video n all. fuck that shit.

Also, what the story with loads of people still having the old style wall. I opted for timeline under the impression that it was becoming mandatory in the following days. Not that I really care, just feel lied too.

Does it ever block anything worthwhile?

0 |

Nothing. It's insanity not to use an adblocker.

Sweet on adblock

Adblock plus is essential. I alo have a load of add ons through chrome that stop all the tracking sites. Collusion is great and really cool how it shows whos tracking waht in a cool moving diagram, ghostery, AVG do not track. They are essential.

Facebook is going a bit weird today on my android. Anyone else not send messages or access notifications?

Hi Kev....any other extensions for blocking "The Man"?, I always wear a tin foil hat BTW too for protection from those mind reading satellites.

And the award for the most original post of the year goes to floppy cock. Why don't you take me up on my opinions if you think i'm so full of shit?

Note that if your criticising what i use to stop viruses etc then your a complete and utter walt.

what exactly is wrong with limiting who tracks your online presence?

you do realise your tin foil hat is amplifying radio waves at frequencies reserved for government use, flaccido?

that collusion add on is pretty nifty Kev... cheers for the heads up

If you take the time to trawl through chrome apps, you find some great stuff.

A really good Idea for retaining your privacy is not having Facebook.

0 |

That Collusion one is very good.

What others extensions are worth looking at...? Stick them in here if possible - forum.hudsonbelfast.co...

Why not just use Tor in Private Browsing mode? That way you'll never be logged into anything ever again

unsure if serious or not

0 |

Well I mean, I'm serious, that'd give you as close to 100% privacy as you're likely to get. It'd make the internet absolute shit to use, granted, but that's the way it works.

Matthew the search function hasnt been working for a few days now. whats the happenstance?

0 |

Just found this site online, some of you may be interested in having a go.

www.wolframalpha.com

If you type in 'facebook report' into the search bar, it gives you a personal analytics report on your facebook usage. Just about to give it a go myself here, could be interesting.

0 |

quite interesting that.

Surely this 'read receipt' thing they do now for Facebook messages is just a recipe for disaster? Can't pretend not to have been online anymore as there is a tick to say ding ding ding they have ignored you.. :/

0 |

so, ignore the shit outta people.

If you change the language you can choose:
Leet speak
english (pirate)
english (upside down)

why?!?!

0 |

Read receipts aren't new, they've been around since early this year iirc. You can actually see the message without it being marked as read, it doesn't mark as read until you click on the chat window, or open the Messenger app on your iPhone or whatever. Or just turn off chat if you don't want to chat.

The weird English languages are mostly there for fun, but they do have a good development reason for being there - English (Upside Down) is good for testing unicode characters. Pirate I think is good for representing longer languages for visual testing etc. Also, they were all created by the FB community, crowdsourced.

I never have the chat thing on so maybe mine never show as read then. Doesn't bother me but was thinking it has maybe caused a lot of arguments already :)

Is this a spoof?

It's just an auto-generated "friendship" page, with a shortcut URL at facebook.com/u if you've indicated you're in a relationship. If you goto any friends Timeline, click on the wee gear icon and choose "See Friendship" you can see a bunch of them.

0 |

So the only people that can see those pages are the people in the relationship?

0 |

I dunno, certainly nothing you can't already see on people's individual profiles.
