Facebook utente disapprovazione

Although the information on the Internet about it are already numerous, I often find myself explaining to others how to understand if a Facebook profile is fake.
Despite being the end of 2013, it is normal that not all are experts in certain subjects.
I gave a brief reading some of the posts already exist in the network, but many I did not like. Treat the subject in a way too long, too synthetic, too trivial, or just lie on websites that appear as Christmas trees decorated by advertising and everything else.
Then I will give below a brief summary of the essential points through which recognize fake users on Facebook.
I confess, I should not have, but in the past sometimes I added them just for the fun of it behind them.
They do not occur if the person they’ve added, for example, has created the first website similar to Facebook in 2002.
On the other hand in life always goes like that: who want to be clever have then to realize that really capable people are actually unexpectedly those who everyone believed they had opposite characteristics easily.

To understand if the person who sends us the friend request on Facebook is a fake user you need to examine some of the characteristics of the profile. Some of them are almost certainly a signal that it is a fake, while others may also be attributable to real users.
If you look at it clearly enough then it will become almost trivial to realize that you have not faced a real person.

Mostly the fake profiles are of course beautiful women, but can also be men. They often have only the profile picture that represents a person, but it’s not sure, because there are real people who do the same or even do not publish photos that represent them.
Same thing goes for the fact that every picture does not represent them, but it concerns an event or other stuff.
If, however, in the few pictures that represent them we can recognize different person, although similar, for example, several girls that are not really the same person, or else, the photos are all very small, then it is almost certainly a fake.
Between brackets, for the uninitiated people, and there are many: to pretend to be another person or to use pictures of other people can lead to, in a nutshell, the police to make “knock knock” on your shoulder.
I can tell you clearly, given that in the past, cause fake users present on my websites similar to Facebook I helped police as required by the script.
Fake users often have thousands and thousands friends, maybe they are at the 5000 limit, because the person or company that creates the fake profile often has the purpose of having a list of contacts big as possible to exploit it for marketing and advertising.
Also this is not sure, because few real people have thousands of friends cause many reasons.
Another salient feature of the fake profiles is the suspected inactivity on their wall, apart events or other published specifically and especially many people who are grateful for having had the friendship. This combination distinguishes them from real users, that however, choose not to publish almost anything on their board.

There are those who suggest using software programs to automatically analyze your Facebook looking for fake users, but personally I would avoid and I would trust your common sense and to that of Facebook.
Note fact that Facebook currently checking some profiles and official pages of famous people or companies, then placing in their profile a special blue label.
Another accessory trick is to search with Google for the name and surname, nick or the pics, using Google Images and loading such as the suspect profile photo.
This process can help, but does not necessarily lead to a certain result and this should be used with due criterion.
Pay attention because of the possible scope of a user is not only false advertising, marketing or spam. There are also, for other examples, those who want to spy on you or even those who want to take possession of your profile, maybe using the mechanism of trusted friends.

So, before you give friendship to anyone on Facebook, try to check with who you are dealing in relation to the philosophy adopted for this purpose.
Also remember that your privacy on the Internet, and especially on Facebook is a mere illusion about which the maximum you can do is to protect yourself with prevention mechanisms that works only with those who are sufficiently ignorant or impotent
Maybe I will write on this topic in a more accurate way in the future, however, then if you want that people can’t know or can’t see something, don’t publish it on Internet at all, or else, possibly even better, keep it to yourself and bring it till the grave.
This is, and this will remain, the only way, on the Internet and in life.



google chrome malware advice

Let’s play a little game: I don’t say names.
Although, I tell you, you can easily get to everything.
Eh, otherwise there is no fun.
For everything there is a reason. And among other, since this seems to be the era in which to make pseudo sagacious goes out of style, whether or not like some  TV series as Doctor House, I’m starting to think to take the field, nay, in some ways, come back, me too.
So “we have fun”. Eh. Why in general, you have to know that in  certain case with me, “we have a lot of fun”.
Meanwhile, as you see, “I come back” to writing.
And here is therefore the story of the mysterious case.

Some days ago, during my consonant, as well as daily tour of the newspaper websites, or if you want, of on-line newspaper, I start to read a post.
Yes, because you know that today, on the same newspaper website, you can find various blogs held by journalists or not. So, posts and articles coexist.
Nothing new, eventually. Probably a mere and obvious extension of the fact that the newspapers will disappear and become content accessible via the Internet.
N.B.: do not ever think that I am against, on the contrary, I’m usually on the opposite side. Yes.

But here, after a while I’m reading this post I am bored already, because the interesting posts, at least for my taste, are few, I admit it.
As I admit that I love to know who is writing.
In short, yes, if there is a profile I’m going to read it on the website, and I explor as I can and until I want.
I don’t know, I think, however, has its own utility to know who is writing, or maybe I’m just very curious!

In this case the author says he has a blog.
So I immediately visit it! But the enthusiasm is immediately transformed into a mixture of annoyance, amazement and disappointment.
This is because Google Chrome, the browser that I prefer actually, it doesn’t let me to see the blog website.
Reason: no, it’s not Chrome not working, simply he advice me that watching that website I could take a malware.
To put it in a nutshell: pay attention, because if you visit that website, your computer can take a virus, so, better to don’t watch it.

No. I don’t think this advice it’s a nuisance. On the contrary. I think that it’s a useful thing “for the people”.
But the central point of all, but just about everything, is not this.
Is that with people, in general, a bit as a company or a trader with customers, you appear in a bad light, if you say that you have a blog, perhaps on an online newspaper among the most popular and then, in some way something doesn’t work in your website.
You know well that today every little fault is made to stand out and move at the speed of light, or better, of Internet

In these cases the hives, as well as the instinct to help others, to put it nicely, assail me.
And so, in some way I contact who wrote the post, as well owner of the blog, to advice about the problem.
N.B.: with other browsers, as Firefox or Explorer, maybe the problem does not occur, but this, is not a good thing, on the contrary, perché because if your computer take a virus then you only get pissed of.

In the specific case Google noted that in reality, is not exactly that website, the blog, that contain the malware, but it’s marked as dangerous, because it integrates content that are part of another web site, and it is the latter, that Google identifies as the real culprit.
The blog, which among other things has been done on one of the many automated services to create prefabricated websites , in fact the only fault to contain inside track  of the guilty website, which in turn seems to be a kind of “homemade feed aggregator”.

And then, morality is simply, if you’re foo with the website under the butcher’s house about nobody cares or if you’re a celebrity who writes a blog for a famous newspaper, do housework!
That is, it takes just a little today to keep a good health website.
It’s true that the time is always missing, that we want to do other things and blà blà blà and also riblà!
It happens to me too, as it happens to everyone, but as for cleaning the house it takes just a moment sometimes.
That little attention, definitely proportionate as the case, that you avoid to get under a bad and sad light. Because this is the truth: if you want to have an on-line presence, you have to take care of this presence.
It’s your extension from the real world to the virtual world.
And if are a stranger, ora a famous person, a small shop or a large company, there is nothing to do, you will be judged for that too, for your website, your Facebook page and so on.
So, take care about this fact and pay attention to what you have on-line in proportion to your needs and your desires.

Remember that, if you have an ugly website, old, that doesn’t work or even that can transmit computer viruses, is certainly not a nice business card.
People are getting more hasty and merciless in the face of certain things, especially towards the online world. On the first thing that doesn’t work, poeple often divert to other stuff or they mark you automatically and immediately as something to be discarded.
And unfortunately once you have a name, you’ve made and impression, is always hard to change opinion.

The existing websites, or at least those of a certain type, are almost all based on automatic systems.
Check that everything is then affixed to the system or service that you are using and make updates if necessary.
You will see that it is like any other thing, just a little maintenance every now and then.
“I know, I knoow, I knooow!”, as the good old dear in the Cloud Atlas movie.
That to me is the best character and I love quote.
I have dwelt, but in truth there is a lot more to say about this story. I’ll tell you, perhaps, in other future posts. Also, if you want, to protect the unsuspecting protagonists.
So you might say. At least for now. Amen!

Larch forest in the dolomites

Larch forest in the dolomites

Some days ago on Facebook I control notifications from the page that I’ve created for my mother Rita Maria Zampini as painter.
On the wall of the page I see some messages from an user that is trying to contact her.
My mother, cause age or other reasons can’t use Internet so much, although she can use the email.
I usually administrate her website and the other Internet stuff, like Facebook, on which I just created that page.

This user, a man who seems originally from Sri Lanka, says that he’s a painter too and he will have an exhibition at Prato, in Piazza Mercatale.
He found my mother on Facebook, thanks to the page I’ve created, he saw her paintings and he would meet her to know and show each other their works, taking counsel each other.

With the proper dose of skepticism mixed with a hint of optimism I write to him a message and I start to talk with him.
We add each other on Facebook like friends and I explain to him that he will have to explain his intentions and refer to me, even because he can speak some English, language that my mother doesn’t know.

Thus, he explain that he will be guest of his sister, that is living yet at Prato with her family since some years ago and that he would so my mother will come to his exhibition.
I make sure to tell me when and where the exhibition will be and I wrtite that I will comunicate all information to my mother that if she can she will come to the exhibition.

Next few days me and my mother taked a look to the few pictures about the painter works on his Facebook profile, paintings that I appreciated too thanks to the beautiful colors.
The Sri Lanka painters, write us details about his exhibition and I confirm to him that my mother probably will come.

And so, my mother went to this exhibition, she saw the works of this painter, they had a meeting and when my parents come back home I understand  that it was a pleasure for everybody.

They told me that he’s trying, as his sister, to live here, to sell his works and to learn our language thanks to a course organized by a church.

I told you this story to show a typical example of positive Internet use, a good example of Facebook use.
Unfortunately sometimes we can still listen to some news about some bad experience, but as I told so many times and I continue to repeat, is not the fault of the medium.
We have created it, the human being creates it, and the human being must try to use it to get a better life, that it is a mobile phone, a car or a website.
The most diverse situations, like people with good or bad intentions are everywhere, the network is just an extension of reality that amplifies certain aspects in relation to the possibility of communication, of sharing, and then the exchange of information in a lapse of time less than.

Make the most of it, think about it, try to get the best with with your experience and your intelligence.
Do not jump without thinking, but do not even think too much, do it well, just enough, be open mind, be critical, be awake.
