fuck facebook. really.
the other day i received some spam from the bush hall, an event venue in west london. they were advertising an 80s themed NYE bash, seemed really cheesy, and i forwarded the email to my wife as a joke, with some sarcastic comment.
a few days later i got a message via instagram that i had 'liked' the event on my facebook page.
the facebook page is under my hans_glib moniker. i haven't logged into the account for years - i can't even remember the login details anymore. up till the other day the last entry was "i think it's time to quit facebook." after some auto-report of buying candles or celery or some such inanery.
so somehow facebook has taken the action of forwarding an email under one name and turned it into a (totalluy unwarranted) "like" on an account in a different name.
if that isn't properly sinister, what is?
- The suggesitons from multiple sources that FB is advertising products based upon illicitly-recorded snatches of conversations?detritus
- The likelihood that it never deletes profiles , keeping them as well as speculative guesses as 'shadow accounts' so that EVERYONE is tracked, member or not?detritus

- install some browser plugins
ghostery, privacy badger, noscript are a few.mugwart
