I’m not a rah-rah get in your face politics kind of person. I don’t give a crap what party you back, or believe in. In my opinion both the Democrats and the Republicans are a bunch of jackwagons more controlled by business interests, rather than the needs of the people.
With that said, I am getting a little political. I am making only one post today. I am urging everyone to write the congress person and protest the SOPA and PIPA legislation that is moving through congress.
The image below is a screen grab from Wikipedia, who at this moment is taking the largest stand against what is actually inside these bills. I agree with Wikipedia, and other heavy hitters like Google, WordPress, YouTube, Reddit, Craigslist, and many others about why this legislation is flawed, and shouldn’t be passed. to learn more you can go to the Wiki on SOPA and PIPA here. If you go to Wikipedia you can look up your congressional representative and voice your opinion. It’s your country, take five minutes and send a note to your government asking them to re-think the bill and how it works.
Just in case you are unaware of this, here is reminder about Facebook’s publishing rights policy change that takes effect this Friday.
Friday April 29th, Facebook will become owner of the publishing rights of ALL your private photos.Yes you read that right. Facebook will legally own every private photo you have published to the social networking site.
If you don’t want this to happen, you need to take action with a simple change to your account settings.
Go to “account”, “account settings”, “facebook advertisements” (along the top), choose “ads shown by third parties”, click on “Edit third party ad settings” choose ‘NO ONE’ then SAVE. It takes 2 minutes job and it is worth it.
Please Share this info with your Facebook pals so that they are in the know as well.
