Notions de base sur la confidentialité Facebook

I got a message from Facebook this morning saying that they are changing their privacy policy on January 1, 2015. Here is the message:

Another thing you might want to check out is their new Data Policy, which they lay out in an easy-to-understand, un-intimidating format. As such, it is also kind of terrifying:

And it goes on. If you are a Facebook user, I highly recommend taking some time before January to read through their policy as well as their privacy tips. I know I will.

Mon amie Kim | Patrick Lagacé | Patrick Lagacé

This is a very intriguing article about Lagacé’s Facebook friend that turned out to be a fake. Actually, my first reaction is to feel sort of sad for this person, who by all accounts cultivated a very funny, vivacious persona and who hid his/her real self behind the figure of a pretty woman from Georgia.

But people don’t like to be lied to and even in the days of Anonymous, Avatars and Virtual relationships, we still want people to be who they say they are.

Thanks Geneviève for sharing!

Be Professional: Turn off you Facebook Notification

A teacher was using her iPad as a whiteboard in her class when suddenly a facebook notification appeared on her screen. I am not sure if it was an embarrassing notification – I didn’t ask- but we can all imagine how it has the potential to be. Not to mention the fact that having a facebook notification appear in the middle of demonstrating the plus que parfait doesn’t seem very professional.

First of all. When an app asks you if it can send you notifications, think before allowing. Do you want this showing up at inopportune moments? (I mistakenly allowed CBC news to send me notifications. As soon as a story broke, whether it be during an exam, or four o’clock in the morning, my bloody iPad would start to sound the alarm.  All because Conrad Black made another stupid comment or Harper decided we didn’t need science centers. Which is terrible. We do need science centers. But I could have waited until after my first cup of coffee to receive that little conservative missile).

Second of all, if you happen to be a little tap happy that day, and allowed it before actually looking at what you were allowing, fixing it is easy.

Go to your settings. Right above the General setting, you will find notifications:


See if the app is in your notification centre:

If it is, tap the app you do not want to receive notifications for and swipe it off:


Easy Peasy!
