Every once in a while there will be an unfolding of events that I could write about on either one of my currently active blogs. I actually have four blogs. One, Clyde’s Movie Palace, is in the never ending process of being closed up with all the articles being moved to Clyde’s Stuff, and the other one is Corporate Owned USA, a political blog that I have also pretty much ignored for the past 10 months for the same myriad of reasons that I have ignored this one. Randi Zuckerberg posted a copy of the family photo to Facebook for the eyes of close friends only, but evidently it was also shared with friends of those tagged in the picture due to privacy settings at the social network.
So I have decided that I’ll write this article once and just cross post it on Corporate USA. That way both blogs get something new and I only have to do half of the work. Hey, I got to work an eight hour shift tomorrow so don’t gripe.
I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Mark Zuckerberg’s older but not particularly wiser sister Randi, has a bad case of the Red Ass. It seems someone saw what they thought was a public picture of Randi, and posted it on Twitter. But as it so happened, Randi did not want to share the family’s moment in their messy kitchen with the whole wide Facebook and Twitter world. She only meant it to be for her dearest closest ass kissing best friend groupies that hang on to her as if she was the sister of a billionaire or something of the sort. At least she’s got that going for her.
So Randi found out what the rest of us peasants already knew. The Facebook privacy settings are often a convoluted mess of ca ca. Hell, I gave up on any fool notion of privacy myself a long time ago. Writing every damn thing you can think of on the internet will do that to you. Randi wants to convince the world that we should forget about internet anonymity altogether so her and her dead head morally bankrupt brother can feed ads to us twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.
The Amazing Randi Zuckerberg via CBS News:
I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away... People behave a lot better when they have their real names down. ... I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors. Like most corporate billionaires, Randi and Mark subscribe to their own special kind of religulous type creed that we evolved over billions of years just so we could kiss their ass and help them make money while they do their best to keep us flocking to their money spewing web site. Believe me, if I could round up enough Facebook followers to follow me here, I’d drop that act in a second. And if I can get these blogs rolling again I’ll do just that. My family will know where to find me,
Is it no wonder that the brother/sister act remind me of the Mitt and Anne Romney show we’ve watched unfold for the past eight years? Hell, especially when Randi wants to teach the uncouth masses some “online eitiquette.” and human decency? Is this witch kidding?
From Talking Points Memo:
Randi Zuckerberg posted a copy of the family photo to Facebook for the eyes of close friends only, but evidently it was also shared with friends of those tagged in the picture due to privacy settings at the social network.
That meant the fun photo popped up in the news feed of someone outside Randi Zuckerberg’s circle, who then shared it on popular messaging service Twitter.
From there, the photo went viral — much to Randi Zuckerberg’s chagrin.
“Digital etiquette: always ask permission before posting a friend’s photo publicly,” Mark Zuckerberg’s elder sister said in a Christmas tweet. “It’s not just about privacy settings, it’s about human decency.”
Yeah, I’d like to teach Randi a thing or two regarding privacy, etiquette, and decency towards those who keep you and your brother in your perfectly tailored underwear and panties.
But I’ll let Dan Lyons of ReadWrite Social do it for me:
Yes, Randi Zuckerberg, speak to us about human decency.
Because a photo that you posted on Facebook got shared on the Internet.
How awful this must have been for you! How... invasive. What a violation. How terrible that someone might take something that belongs to you and use it in ways that you had not anticipated, and for which you had not given explicit permission!
What kind of world are we living in when just because you post something on a website someone else can just take your stuff and do things with it?
