I went to my privacy settings to see if I could turn this off, and it said that no websites had tried sending my data to Facebook yet, so there was nothing I could do, even preemptively.

I just saw this via kv_nol posting a comment on Facebook - how the fuck does this work anyway? How does Amazon etc know what yr Facebook account is? Via your cookies or something? This sounds pretty fucked up. Not that I've noticed anything on my news feed yet.

Colonel Poo, Wednesday, 28 November 2007 16:15 (twelve years ago) link

Amazon & FB both use email addresses as logins - I assume they're just feeding back for every email address that matches up on both sites.

onimo, Wednesday, 28 November 2007 16:19 (twelve years ago) link

Well, as I said upthread, my girlfriend's co-worker uses different e-mails for Facebook and Amazon, so he was guessing IP address (although that doesn't seem like it would be very accurate if you share your computer with someone else).

Sorry jaymc, didn't notice you said they were different emails. As you say IP addresses are no good (I share one of my work IPs with a squillion others). Unless they're 100% sure about someone's identity (and even if they are!) this could lead to some very dodgy situations.

xpost thanks Catsupppppppppppppp dude 茄蕃 - if that's the case it can be prevented locally, though many wouldn't know how to do it

WHAT'S NEXT GUYS? WHERE TO?

El Tomboto, Wednesday, 28 November 2007 16:39 (twelve years ago) link

I like facebook, and lord knows I like scrabble, but lord also knows that if I get just one notification from facebook that says "Congratulations! We're going to tell all your friends that you heartily endorse the Hitachi Magic Wand!" I am so deleting my account and never looking back.

WHAT'S NEXT GUYS? WHERE TO?

kenan, Wednesday, 28 November 2007 16:42 (twelve years ago) link

Kenan, don't go! I mean, fuck it, just ignore those notifications. I unselected most so I don't get'em in my email account. And you can go directly to Scrab, bypassing FB and stuff. :-)

My mum ignored my friend request. BITCH. ;-)

nathalie, Wednesday, 28 November 2007 17:02 (twelve years ago) link

nath, the point is not that I'm mildly itchy when I get too many notifications, it's... um... where to begin?

kenan, Wednesday, 28 November 2007 17:04 (twelve years ago) link

If I get bitten by another werewolf I will consider deleting my account too.

Nate Carson, Wednesday, 28 November 2007 17:56 (twelve years ago) link

OTM. Werewolves, pirates, zombies: I don't have time for that shit.

jaymc, Wednesday, 28 November 2007 18:02 (twelve years ago) link

How long before there's a malicious app that tells everyone's entire friends list exactly which porn sites they've been looking at?

Mr non-villageperson has a very good point on the presents thing. This is insanity.

Eventually I went with "Gemma sometimes likes daylights saving" but it somehow sounds completely wrong

You crazy. If you want "is" just type "is".

ledge, Thursday, 13 December 2007 12:27 (eleven years ago) link

You actually have an "is" in there automatically that you have the option of deleting. They should maybe add an autocorrect option for "sooooooooo tired" and "looking forward to the weekend" while they're at it.

That mong guy that's shit, Thursday, 13 December 2007 12:31 (eleven years ago) link

Or just automatically change them all to "is some boring cunt you went to school with who never left their hometown, has just bought their first house and is married to one of the old gang, whoop de fuckin doo"

That mong guy that's shit, Thursday, 13 December 2007 12:32 (eleven years ago) link

one of my tiny number of "friends" has 1,300+ friends, and i was looking for a mutual friend of ours in them, and he had two people who had the (fairly uncommon) name i was looking for, and neither of them were her, and there was no obvious connection (eg one was an american high school student) to my guy... so i think he friended them on the basis 'lol u have a name like my friend who isn't on facebook'. weird.

That one guy that hit it and quit it, Thursday, 13 December 2007 12:33 (eleven years ago) link

oh my god i think i might do that now.
