My last post was a reblog of C Tann Star's post about recent changes on Facebook, that allowed random people to add you to groups without your knowledge. At that point, and up until now, I had not had this personally happen to me... that I know of. But just a few minutes ago, I was logged in, and a box popped up at the bottom of my screen, saying that *insert name* had just added me to the group "Please Join! Stop Bullying In Schools!!".
Well, that certainly sounds like a worthy cause, but the problem is, I did not add myself to the group. Someone else took it upon themselves to add me. To take this to an extreme, isn't that a violation of our Civil Rights? Of my own volition, that may be a group that I would choose to join. But to have myself added, without even a request by this person; now that just ticks me off. So I immediately followed the link, and removed myself from the group.
If you haven't read my re-blog post yet, please do so, and change your settings so this can't happen to you! (Instructions are in the post.) What if the group had been something offensive? And as Americans, don't we all want the right to make our own decisions and choices about where we decide to join the fight?
Well, I'm now going to stop procrastinating, and go change my settings ASAP! I suggest you all do the same; especially if you don't login and check your news feed every day. In that case, who knows what kind of abuses can take place without your knowledge, and actually cost you business if your name is showing up on an offensive list?
