How the Government Tracks You: NSA Surveillance

The U.S. Government has turned the Internet into something it was never intended to be: a system for spying on us in our most private moments. Out of control government surveillance is a dangerous form of censorship. Don’t be intimidated. Share this video.

I hope your telephone call was not […]

Merry Sithmas Darth Vader

Sports & Social Media Florida Panthers Tickets

Those of you that remember a few months back at Social Media Club South Florida, I won 16 box suite tickets to see the Florida Panthers. I picked the Dec 7th against the Colorado Avalanche at the Bank Atlantic Center. I’ve decided to give away half of those tickets to my followers in a silly meaningless contest. Well how do I win a Panther’s ticket? Good question. Keep up with me; RT, Vote (Mixx, Stumble Upon and Old Dogg) and like on facebook (and/or YouTube).

Kevin Rose and Digg Can Listen (if you tweet enough)

Yesterday Digg users started seeing BP ads on Digg and I noticed a post about it over on OldDogg. Today Victor Barrera tweeted, “I wonder how much money @Digg is making off of BP? #shameless” I RTed (retweeted for those of you not on twitter) that and I replied @vtbarrera It just goes to show […]

Social Media Sites that have Twitter Integration (While Digg is still thinking about it)

I saw a post on Mixx yesterday; Digg considering adding Twitter updates, and thought I would write a nice list post.  Digg should have added some sort of Twitter integration last year when they removed the shouting system and forced everyone to use Twitter instead. Top ten social media sites that have Twitter integration: 10 Friend Feed […]

Digg Trends: The First 16 Stories (or Victims)

At first when I heard about Digg Trends I thought that the Digg Users looking at the front page would bury most of the stories. I think the clock is a bit big but otherwise I like it. The design is a bit big in general but I think thats the idea, to get the Digg users’ attention.

Is this story already on Digg?

If you are an avid Digg user you’ve seen the recent survey which included some new ideas for features such as ‘Anonymous Digging’ (WTF Could go wrong with that?), Save to read later (sounds somewhat useful and non-sinster), Digg Groups (Let’s turn Digg into Reddit and give a few users more power than they really need), Digg Breaking News (a clever feature for Digg trolls, to trick them into using the upcoming system already in place), and Digg Verticals (Trendy Web 2.0 speak for god knows what). Here is what I would like to see Digg Improve

Do You Know What Your Facebook Privacy Settings Are?

So basically Facebook has a rule that they aren’t able or willing to enforce. Facebook could phrase it such that they can and will delete applications in breech of their privacy policy but that goes against Facebook wanting to have more apps and more clicks on their social network. I informed Yvette of the bad news and she has some interesting counterpoints; “This is wrong, on so many levels. I have not formally endorsed a single commercial product, voluntarily… And, ethically, if I agreed to product endorsements in the FB TOS, I should be informed of what they are. False advertising. And, what if I am morally or contractually prevented from endorsing this or that product, then what? Troubling.” So Basically it falls on the end users to police Facebook and the application developers if they are breaking the Facebook privacy policy and using your images and likeness to sell their wares. Facebook claims these are “rumors” but they are not. But realistically if the setting for this was off by default, would you want to turn it on?
