Fun on the Web May 20, 2011 Don't Post on FB

What not to post on Facebook

  • Passwords: This shouldn’t even be mentioned here but you’d be surprised at the number of people who foolishly display their passwords for the world to see. Below is a classic example of social engineering that caused some users to reveal their passwords on Facebook. It makes you think, if people are so gullible, should we really be trusting the Web so much?
  • National Identification Numbers: These range from passport numbers, to social security numbers. There’s a reason such IDs are unique to your identity. They are not meant to be shared with people. Avoid this at all costs.
  • Bank/Other Financial Details: You really don’t want a Facebook stalker to be privy to your spending habits, or credit scores, do you? If you want to share such things with a person for business reasons, you shouldn’t be on Facebook in the first place.
  • Login IDs: The web is increasingly becoming part of your identity. You don’t want to lose that identity by sharing login credentials of different services with the world.
  • Social Plans: If you are going to visit that new pub in town, don’t let the world know about it. Try tagging only those who are important and relevant to what you want to post. People have been robbed in the past because they disclosed on Facebook that they are not going to be home.
  • Workplace Info: Another given. You will be in risk of third parties getting their hands on classified information. Also, you’ll surely be violating terms of your employment.

  • Address and Phone Info: Would you really like it if your least-favorite stalker got another reason to scare the living daylights out of you? Even if you have a super-secret, super-strong crush on your stalker, don’t!
  • Also, make sure that any mobile apps you are using to connect to Facebook aren’t posting your sensitive information to Facebook. If they are, look for alternative apps and contact the app developer asking for a reason they need to post personal data (like location, etc.).

    The Facebook bubble isn’t going to burst anytime soon. And with that, the number of malicious users and sneaky developers increases by the day. Just remember one golden rule: you are responsible for your own identity. Only you can protect it.


Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

(Is that why Flipper was always smiling?)


The Perfect Dress

Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could
dampen her excitement, not even her parents' nasty divorce.
Her mother had found the perfect dress to wear and would be
the best dressed mother-of-the-bride ever!

A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new
young wife had bought the exact same dress as her mother!
Jennifer asked her stepmother to exchange it, but she refused.
"Absolutely not. I look like a million bucks in this dress and I'm
wearing it," she replied.

Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, "Never mind
sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day."

A few days later, they went shopping and did find another
gorgeous dress. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked
her mother, "Aren't you going to return the other dress? You
really don't have another occasion where you could wear it."

Her mother just smiled and replied, "Of course I do, dear. I'm
wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding."



1. Your house plants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.

2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.

3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.

4. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.

5. You hear your favorite song in an elevator.

6. You watch the Weather Channel.

7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of "hook up" and "breakup."

8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.

9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."

10. You're the one calling the police because those ..@!.. kids
next door won't turn down the stereo.

11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around

12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes

13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.

14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald's

15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

16. You take naps.

17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning
of one.

18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset
rather than settle your stomach.

19. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not
condoms and pregnancy tests.

20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good shit."

21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.

22. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never
going to drink that much again."

23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real

24. You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.

25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate
them instead of asking "Oh shit, what the hell happened?"


26. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign
that doesn't apply to you and can't find one to save your sorry
ass. Then you forward it to a bunch of old friends 'cause you
know they'll enjoy it too....
