My colleague and friend Jocelyn Goldfein on women in engineering. If you work in a technical field, this is worth your 20 minutes.

I've been dogfooding our improved friend lists, and think it's a real improvement on a long-neglected part of the FB experience. Congratulations to my colleagues on the team for getting it done.

Brilliant stuff!
All I want now is a feature on my profile to 'Jump to' 2 years ago to see what my posts were like then. Scrolling down takes forever and I'd never bother...but it'd be AMAZING to see that. Would make looking at peoples profiles interesting again too. Currently a bit meh.

This was quite interesting. It's an algorithm-guided approach to constructing friend lists on Facebook. http://fellows-exp.com/

I am not sure if you will ever see this, but Facebook is broken

I went to login to my Facebook last night, told me that a post i had crated \ shared (3 months ago, breached community guidelines and has been removed, it gives me a link to the community guide lines and then tells me to press continue.

I press continue to go to the next page and i get the following error

"Sorry, this feature isn't available right now

An error occurred while processing this request. Please try again later."

ITs an infinate loop that we cannot get out of, making the account dead until its fixed
seems to be related to the Checkpoint php script

Some of my friends worked really hard on this. I've been dogfooding it for a month or so, and think it's great. Please give it a try.

Hi Keith. Sorry for the outpouring of grief and anger. :p

I set up an animal adoption group on facebook and lo and behold a idiotic woman who I have never met (or would want to meet) set up another group solely to "shut down" my group. Her entire premise for shutting me down was that I was a "back yard breeder". (I don't own a breeding pair of anything - all my fuzzies are same sex or desexed) I started the group to find homes for my parents cockatiels!!

She flooded my wall with porn, abuse and graphic animal slaughter videos. I never responded and always blocked. I have about 150 blocked people on my list now because of her and her followers and her fake pages! So, anyway, I contacted the police and was told that it's nearly impossible to do anything because of the lack of people at FaceBook that liaison with the police in Australia. I had one person write me to let me know that she had been hospitalised for 4 days because of this abusive woman's emails and hate mail!! I was horrified, let me tell you.

By this time I was totally stressed out and handed the group to another person to battle on with. I believe she's still having the same trouble. She had over 2,500 people I think when I last looked. I can't go there anymore because of the memories.

The bad part was that even when they are banned from the group, they can still see the posts and write derogatory remarks about members on their own hate page. When I blocked them, they just couldn't see only me anymore. :s I don't get that. I believe that if someone is blocked or banned from the group, it should be a permanent thing regardless of who is admin. The hate page was eventually shut down (2 months after it was reported the first time), which they then went and made a brand new hate page. By the time I left, I was being accused of owning ALL the local pet pages.. I wish I HAD kept screen grabs of all the rubbish that went on, so I could show you the horror of it all... but I didn't. :( This ruined the whole group experience for me.

I'm still with facebook - it's addictive - but I think admins of groups should have more control over who gets evicted. I could have removed so much trouble by being able to block and ban her and her "friends". Or, make the groups able to switch between closed and open when necessary.

I'm not expecting facebook to be responsible for these idiots/trolls/keyboard warriors that use the anonymity of social sites to attack others - but allowing admins more control over the trolls. When banned, the option to ban the friends of that person would be a start. :D Also, I noticed that if groups accidently remove all the admins, they carry on without them.. Maybe a script that if a group doesn't have admin activity it is flagged to self destruct in a short period of time. ;)

Thanks for not deleting my rant before. :) And responding - That means something. :D

Stiff competition from youtube; I actually doubt there are four sigdigs in these measurements, so it's probably a toss-up. Still proud to be up there.
