There are serious problems with Facebook (among a number of other
providers of social networking services).
I don't have a Facebook account. So why when I click on a link
under "Recommended Episodes" on
do I get a response "from Facebook". (Sorry Dyani, its not your fault,
the science is excellent, but being tracked by Facebook is not.)
Once when one did a Google search, one could click on one of the
links and go directly to the designated page. Now, if I click on
a link, Google "phones home". (No, I don't need to have cookies
enabled for that to happen.)
The science of network content analysis is way, way ahead of what
the public understands.
For a public perception, the 'nightlife' program on ABC radio
will be canvassing this as their "issue of the day" tonight
... from perhaps a little bit before 1 AM depending on the timing
of the end of "The Quiz".
Some links which may be of interest:
Why should anyone be tracking my search terms; following my link
usage; identifying my map locations; monitoring my GPS; reading my;
mail to any gmail users etc. logging/analysing my opinions on
Good luck with your quest Phil.
