Dating questionary futurama online dating like pimping but
This is a post I’ve been wanting to write for a while.In fact, it stems from something I noticed way back in August of last year.——– Thus concludes my venture into the deep, uncomfortable underbelly of social networking for professionals.Linked In has slipped under the radar when it comes to privacy controls and transparency, which I believe is unacceptable.A final thought I had was that maybe I was missing a setting within these other applications such as Facebook, allowing them to share my information with partner sites.Upon checking my Facebook controls, I found the following personalization setting: …but Linked In isn’t one of their partner websites.You see, Linked In as a company isn’t the only thing creepy about Linked In. Within a couple clicks, you will likely be on the profile of a “model” from across the country.In other words, “People Also Viewed” creates a public graph of creepy men’s browsing habits at work.
If you click on the Account tab, you can adjust privacy controls for advertising.
However, I hadn’t noticed (mainly because I didn’t think to look for privacy controls in more than one place) the privacy options under the Groups, Companies & Applications tab.
There, I found two more controls that were pre-selected: Okay, so Linked In had been sharing my data with third party applications and plugins.
On another note, it seems that Facebook in sensitive about this topic, as I received this prompt when I disabled instant personalization: I still believe that Linked In is using the search history of others to suggest “people I may know” to me, which sort of make sense.
However, I am still stumped on how they came up with some of these names.
