It’s true. You can’t watch videos on Facebook. It’s a fact. It’s also true that if you do get a glimpse of your friend’s Facebook profile, you’re still not getting a glimpse of your friend’s life. You can’t see what they are doing in their day-to-day life, what they are doing at work, or what they are doing on their personal Facebook page.
Facebook is one of the most popular websites, with more than 50% of Americans using it every day. So why is it that when you visit Facebook, all you see is their own profile picture, not any of their friends’? That’s right, if you want to see a “friend of mine” you have to actually go and find a picture of him or her on Facebook.
As an example, it’s a common occurrence for people to post pictures of themselves on Facebook, and then post their friends’ pictures on their own profiles. This is because friends and family tend to see themselves in a similar light and thus want to be seen as similar, and this makes it difficult to know who a person really is. But the issue isn’t just with Facebook. Any time you’re on a website, you’re also seeing the entire profile of whoever you’re logged into.
Facebook has a policy of taking down links if the linker has posted someone’s information, but the problem here is that anyone can post whatever they want to Facebook, and the more people that do this, the more likely it is that information will be posted by others. This then leads to the phenomenon we all know as “linkjacking.
If you use Facebook to read other people’s pages, you are probably already exposed to linkjacking. But this is why it’s important to use a password manager like LastPass. While Facebook might have taken down the entire person’s profile, LastPass can keep a much closer watch on who a person is posting to. It can also be used as a filter for information you want to see, like deleting links to your own website.
Many of the people posting to LastPass use Facebook to share photos, videos, and pictures. If you want to see what’s in your profile then create a new profile.
Facebook is a good place to check out the latest in your community. But they do it without much oversight and you should be aware that it’s possible to find out if someone is posting something harmful. If something on Facebook is particularly toxic you can either report it to Facebook or send it to yourself.
Most of the time we want to check out what other people are doing and not what we’re doing. But that doesn’t mean we need to check everything. To stop someone from posting something that could be risky, you can use a special password to block the person. It’s a good idea to use your computer as a password protection if you can.
If someone posts something from one of your webpages, you can block the person by using their Facebook password. If you have different passwords for your different accounts then you can block them with them.
When I was a kid I used to use the word “password” to describe the type of password you could use to block. It’s a little ironic because this word has a wider meaning than the word “person” or “password.” But I can’t remember what it means until I’m used to typing the word “password” in my computer.
