Re: [Chrysler300] Warning On Facebook Use

Facebook uses only the information you post in your profile. For example, if you have your high school listed, it knows that. If you post that you're in a relationship, it knows that. If you post where you live, it knows that. If you post your birthday, I knows that. When you post something to your timeline, and you include the location where you are, it knows that.
So then Facebook takes all that information and tailors it advertisements relevant to your profile. For example if you include the college you graduated from, it will interject contacts you may know, between the posts you're looking at on your timeline. Or it may suggest other pages that you might be interested in that are relevant to the information you have in your profile or a history of pages you visit.
There are two ways you can avoid their tracking: Don't post any details on you profile; or you can click on the down arrow in the heading of their suggestions, and click "don't send me this."
Yes, as an older fellow, I was intimidated at first, but my kids helped me learn to navigate and now it's a much more enjoyable experience.

Ron is right on that point. Does anyone one know how to “delete” personal information stored on FB or get rid of all information on our website?

Actually, if you are logged in to facebook, which is what you have to do in order to use the site, then they may be tracking what you do on the internet. Has nothing to do with the Like button.

Be forewarned...
For those who aren't aware, or as a reminder to those who are aware -- if you use the "LIKE" function on Facebook: this is what enables Facebook to track your movements, destinations, etc. across the Internet. They then sell that information to other businesses.

If Don's post had been done on Facebook, I would “like” it.

A forum link on our website would be one option. Another would be a usable Facebook page. Just sayin’.

Okay, Hugh -- how about posting what the alternative Internet program/application is you propose the club could use?

Yet another reason why all users shouldn’t have to (involuntarily) receive every email sent to the group on every subject…  Yahoo Groups is an outmoded method of communicating among enthusiasts.  Thanks-

Yahoo has been trying to keep their system-wide hack under cover for months - it was revealed only in the last two weeks that they had hackers in their system.

I believe my ff-guy account is fixed now but I'm changing Passwords on every account I've got.  It is my understanding that several million accounts were hacked.

There appear to be interesting and subtle differences between the messages.
Mine had a subject line of “Favor” and said:
How are you doing today?
Can you do me a favor please
There was no link, my first name did not appear and JL’s name and address on the “From” line were his standard issue.  Maybe special treatment for men named John?  
I did open the email but nothing happened.  Perhaps my virus filters stripped something out or John’s list went to different hackers with differing MO’s.
Thanks for sharing.  I needed to raise my paranoia level.
On reflection, it is nice to drive a nice old lettercar that requires me to have at least one hand on the wheel, contains no nanny or black box, does not have a “Check Engine light” and is not subject to hacking or tracking.  It’s computers are pretty much analog-TorqueFlite, distributor, alternator regulator, carbs, relays, switches, circuit breakers, remote-boosted power brakes, shocks & etc.

We need to french fry whoever did this stuff..

The text seemed aborted on repetition/ forwarding - that worries me. As if
it was somehow preventing exposing the words used.

What it said was ; "John, can you do me a favor?,

John L "

So customized, brief, not a generic plea. Most of us would open that? 

Then , upon opening, it went to the scam about sick relatives in foreign

I am well aware of this kind of thing, not stupid, but the first email was
,to me very sophisticated?? played on someone who in fact respects John a
lot,---I paused briefly-- and then thought "he needs something about 300's"

What a slime ball. French fry till a toasty critter.

As I understand it, a hacker steals an e-mail list, then sends the same
message to all on the stolen list to confirm the address is still in service
and of some value to someone somewhere. Then the hacker puts a million
addresses or so on storage media and peddles them around the world. The
first victim will never know their list was stolen until someone tells them.
Recipients that delete before opening are slightly better off as their
e-mail address won't be on this particular list. In this case there did not
appear to be any pictures or attachments that might have a virus to plant on
the recipient's computer. 

Don't blame John or block his pretty cool e-mail address. He has much
knowledge and experience to share.

I'm kinda of a French fry guy myself.
