Today's Facebook Follies

Facebook is instituting a TRUST-RATING FEATURE because their Panopticon is not just creepy enough yet. 




Also: If your Facebook page gets...big*...then you need to let Facebook know where you live


People who manage these pages that have significant followings are going to be asked to complete an authorization process in order to keep posting on their page.

"Well...that doesn't have any troubling implications."

Oh lighten up Sarcastic Coffee Girl. It's obvious that the idealistic nerds are just building a road to a glorious** future that we can get a glimpse of in this two year old Wired article and these two pieces that (entirely coincidentally I'm sure) ran on Drudge today. 

* definition of "big" is not firmly established at this time.
** definition of "glorious" may involve momentary discomfort.

2 "complete an authorization process"
Time to root your phone & spoof your location, *before* they start watching for that like the makers of Pokemon Go have started doing.

Are the people doing the authorizing going to be formerly 'rehabilitated' inhabitants of Saudi-controlled or influenced institutions of incarceration?  You know, like Youtube allegedly employed?
