Technology Matters-Facebook Dating

Technology Matters

    Facebook is helping users fall in love.

    Use your first name to set up a dating profile.

    You won’t be matched with your Facebook friends and this will not appear in news feeds.

    (Mark Zuckerberg)  “You’re only going to be suggesting people who are not your friends, who’ve opted into dating, who fit your preferences although I can’t promise you going to find an e-mates.”  (Laughs)

    Not if you’re a billionaire, dude.

    The dating feature rolls out later this year.

    A cute puppy always a winner on the dating scene.

    Now Amazon wants you to feed that pup its newest product…Wag

    That’s a dry dog food in several varieties.  You have to be a Prime member to get this.

    Amazon plans more Wag products.  That’s because we spend 72-billion each year on pets, 30 billion on dog food alone.

    Back to Facebook with the announcement of a ‘clear history’ option amid its privacy scandal.

    Clear your browsing history, clicks and websites visited.

    This will take a few months to build.  A welcome addition.

    A warning for the Twitterverse.  Your password may have been compromised thanks to a computer bug.

    If you’ve seen the pop-up advising you to change your password, do so.

    This includes everyone from President Trump to Crissy Tiegan.

    This wasn’t a hack, but a bug that stored passwords.  Hundreds of millions of passwords.

    This a reminder to consider a password manager.  Those generate unique passwords for all your accounts.  You then have only one password to remember to unlock your accounts.
