John and Doves,
Here's looking at you , kid .......
Facebook now ID's one's face in any place on the web. This is automatically done and is arbitrary ( it does not have one's permission ). Facebook claims they have this right ever since it began Facebook on the net. Unfortunately, they did not make this clear to the users.
One begins to wonder if ANY photo relayed on the net places us under this same abomination, even if a person never registered on Facebook. My hunch is that it is also subject to this mug-rule, or will be.
The internet began as an information highway .. a place where facts could be exchanged easily. But over the years it has morphed into a social-network that enables tremendous profiling abilities on the part of TPTB ( the powers that be ). The more we share about ourselves, the more they store in data banks.
Most people say, "So what ? I've got nothing to hide ". Well yes, until the System turns the info into any way they want to manipulate and interpret it ... to cut off insurance payments, health benefits etc. etc etc.
The Bible tells us to "hide yourselves for a little while ", as a rule of discretion. Isaiah 26:20
Yet even so, the Bible is to be proclaimed everywhere, and without inhibition.
" The Word of God is not bound ". 2 Timothy 2:9
"Freely we have received, freely give" Matthew 10:8
"Facebook is pushing the privacy line once again, according to a new report from a security and antivirus company.
According to the report, from Sophos, Facebook recently began changing its users’ privacy settings to automatically turn on a facial recognition feature that detects a user’s face in an image. Once the person’s face is detected, the Web site then encourages Facebook friends to tag them. Facebook introduced this feature last year for its North American users; it is now rolling it out globally.
Facebook also doesn’t give users the option to avoid being tagged in a photo; instead, people who don’t want their name attached to an image must untag themselves after the fact.
In response to a reporter’s inquiry, posted on a Facebook blog, the company said, “We should have been more clear with people during the roll-out process when this became available to them.”
