Babble Soft on facebook – Please ‘Fan’ Us (Pretty Please?)
Dec 1 2007

As I mentioned in a previous post (that Robert Scoble himself commented on!) I finally set up my own personal facebook account.  After reading a post by Fred Wilson (the big-wig NY venture capitalist) about people setting up fake company facebook pages, I figured I should act quickly and add a Babble Soft page…before some ‘bad guys’ (as my 5 year old would say) decided to co-opt a parent/baby related site that hardly anyone knows about and make it their own on facebook [insert sarcastic chuckle here].  If you’d like to become a fan of Babble Soft it would make me ever so happy if you would click here.

I wouldn’t have been able to set up the Babble Soft page as quickly as I did without some links and support from Lee Aase.  He showed me how to add Simply RSS and how to import Notes (blog posts) into both pages.  Thanks Lee!

Now for a screenshot of the Babble Soft facebook page that is so new that it’s screaming please become a fan of my site… 🙂

    Pearl – I think Anja’s a little overboard with her concerns.

    When you agree to the Facebook TOS, you’re just saying you have the right to upload what you’re uploading, so they don’t get sued for copyright infringement.

    Forget the CIA paranoia. Facebook is gathering information about which some businesses might be interested. If you say in your profile that you like Coca-Cola, for example, they might send you a coupon. I said I like Stevie Wonder so I see ads for his concert tickets.

    That’s about as scary as it gets.

    Thanks Pearl for the link to the article. It’s interesting. I think it’s always good to know what ‘could’ happen to your information. It’s also a great reminder that you should be careful no matter what you do regarding the information you put out on cyberspace about yourself. I am very careful about what I put out there. I don’t put my birthdate on my profile. I rarely (if ever) even mention my kids by name on this blog. Thanks for the reminder!

    Hi Lee – I’m guessing that in 99% of the cases people don’t have to worry, but I think it’s always good to be aware that in 1% of the cases something could go wrong…especially with the increased cases of identity theft and mistaken identity. Unfortunately there are some really ‘un-well’ (bad guys) out there that will take advantage of anyone. So far facebook as been fun for me and millions of others. I hope it stays like that!

    Yes, I agree. I think what you’re doing (e.g. birthday listed instead of full birthdate) is smart. I’ve seen a video with this CIA conspiracy angle, though, and it’s a real stretch.

    There are probably some predators and identity thieves out there, but I see Facebook as being less of a problem than the internet in general, because people can’t see your particular profile information without your consent. Companies can see aggregate data and can target ads to you, but they’re not seeing your individual profile.

    I think Google bowing to the Chinese government’s pressure is a much bigger deal. Google has much more data on us than Facebook does.
