I have a confession to make...

Postby dedanna1029 » 26 Aug 2015, 18:40

Hate me all you want, but I am back on Facebook for three reasons. I have chance to help Indie/Unsigned bands make it in the world, and you know nothing keeps me from music. I am admin for two groups, owned by one site "owner", who has put up pages in 72 countries so far to help promote indie/unsigned bands get promoted.

See USA Is Alive With Music, and Scotland Is Alive With Music, and I may be admin for Japan too in the future. There are some great indie bands out there, in several genres. Great music that never gets heard. In this way, it does get heard, and radio presenters, booking agents, mixers, musicians, all aspects of the music business are welcome - so long as they are indie/unsigned (or own their own independent label).
I am debating opening up shop as a music promoter, but that will wait until I'm in Scotland for good (speaking of which, I'm going over there soon on holiday).

Reason #3 is Linux. There is a Linux group, and a Linux Administrators group that I belong to. Any posting to my own timeline is purely to troll, so f*ck Facebook and the NSA - they get little from me. +1

Oh, I do, and will, but soon as the biz is off the ground, I'm back out of there. This is a good tool to get it going.

Ha! Nah, you're not alone, and I'm not tempted by the devil; neither am I addicted, except to music and linux. :D

Well as long as you throw Spotify out....I will forgive you. Those spying bastards need to learn a lesson....

They know all about addictions and they exploit it; making them Pimps. Not everybody manages to go "cold turkey" .

The sound of silence for a month - could you take it?

Welcome to Hell (or the Spotify head office from downstairs - it is the department next to Facebook) :twisted:



They have even made Halloween masks of Zuckerberg

I shit you not.

There are some low tech ways to protect your data on Facebook and Google.
Make fake birthdays lie about your name and only search for nearby coffee shops in Kuala Lumpur on Google Maps.

That way they will be selling crap about you - because they are selling the data gathered about you and your activities.

And it will make it harder for thieves to steal your identity.

And as our governments have thought us; technically it is not even lying when it is about (National or Private?) security - simply a small shift of recollection.

Yes it is me: Satya Nadella but I lied a little bit regarding my age there - that's cool....

I am not in any social media. No FookBook, or Twatter, or Licked-In for me. +1

I'm not on any of the other ones either, except for LinkedIn, and I'm never in there. When I was in school they required us to get a LinkedIn account...
I don't dig it. I should deactivate or delete it, really.
I let twitter go ages ago because I was never on it either. Deleted both accounts.
I really don't dig the social media scene but do music and Linux so...

Is sad that schools makes that Licked-In mandatory. To me should be a choice. Sounds like they are getting kick-backs for subscribers.

No, what it is (and this is actually true), is it's so hard to find a job (was at the time) that they have you set one up to be seen by potential employers, because employers search LinkedIn a lot for potential employees (take it from the employment recruiter, she knows). I'm sure now that the job market has eased somewhat, they will not require it so much any more.

Exactly, created a monopoly. That is just plain awful. Might as well and get rid of resumes, why bother, use Licked-In for intel.

Yup. :-P
I'd rather have someone's resumé in front of me on paper in b&w. Easier to sort them that way, IMO.
