Facebook not updating
However, a user who presses "like" or comments on the photo or status update of a friend cannot prevent that action from appearing in the news feeds of all the user's friends, even non-mutual ones.
On November 29 this was changed to require confirmation from the user before publishing each story gathered by Beacon.
On December 1, Facebook's credibility in regard to the Beacon program was further tested when it was reported that the New York Times "essentially accuses" Mark Zuckerberg of lying to the paper and leaving Coca-Cola, which is reversing course on the program, a similar impression. also claimed in a November 29, 2007 blog post that Facebook collected data from affiliate sites even when the consumer opted out and even when not logged into the Facebook site.
The "View As" option, used to show a user how privacy controls filter out what a specific given friend can see, only displays the user's timeline and gives no indication that items missing from the timeline may still be showing up in the friend's own news feed.
Government and local authorities rely on Facebook and other social networks to investigate crimes and obtain evidence to help establish a crime, provide location information, establish motives, prove and disprove alibis, and reveal communications.
An informative notice about this action appeared on the third party site and gave the user the opportunity to cancel it, and the user could also cancel it on Facebook.
Facebook treats such relationships as public information, and the user's identity may be displayed on the Facebook page of the product or service.
It was not a security breach and did not compromise user data in any way.when I click on my notifications box it just spins idly never filling in or updating.When i click see all at the bottom it opens a new page with all of the updates that never appeared when the number popped up on the globe indicating i had a new notification.Notable issues include Internet privacy, such as its use of a widespread "like" button on third-party websites tracking users, with its most prominent case concerning allegations that CEO Mark Zuckerberg broke an oral contract with Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra to build the then-named "Harvard Connection" social network in 2004, instead allegedly opting to steal the idea and code to launch Facebook months before Harvard Connection began.In 2010, the Electronic Frontier Foundation identified two personal information aggregation techniques called "connections" and "instant personalization".Users can now hide each status update from specific people as well.
