This is a particularly encouraging post by Bruce Van Horn. I can so identify with what he says.

"Research has shown that those who keep their failures and traumas buried deep inside them live shorter and unhappier lives than those who share them for the purpose of encouraging others."

Sharing your weakest moments can help others to become stronger. — Jen McDonough Isn’t it interesting how we all want to appear stronger than we really are? There is often a little voice inside our heads that tells us to hide our personal failures and struggles, to keep them buried and hidden from the light …

BEWARE! Facebook can now activate the microphone on your computer or iPhone and listen to you. By all means, look for this function in your privacy settings if you value your privacy.

Lauren Swartzmiller, your post is spot on! Great research on the topic, too. I could not find anything on my Facebook privacy settings to turn off their ability to "listen in" on me. Thanks for your added concern about Facebook's audio surveillance! Enough is enough.
An acquaintance of mine posted on their page about some privacy changes that Facebook put into place at the end of April.  I read the article they linked to and then a few more on the subject.  While for the most part, the ch...

I am heading rapidly in the direction of ending the relationship.
FB: Algorithms, bizarre messages that Mark Zuckerberg is going to give me $100,000.00 (oh, give me a break), too many friends have hacked accounts, strange stalker who is now blocked. I guess these perils come with the social turf.
Here's your contradictory marketing idea for the day: One month after deleting its Facebook page, food delivery app Eat24 is on the rebound--with more...
