Skip to comments.Facebook Users: Don't Click on Barack Obama
Posted on 03/11/2009 5:07:55 AM PDT by far sider
Yesterday, I noticed that a friend's Facebook page said that she "became a supporter of Barack Obama." I was surprised by this, because I know her well enough to know that she would never support what Obama promotes and stands for. So out of curiosity I clicked on "Barack Obama" to see what was on his Facebook page.
I spent less than a minute there. I didn't sign or click anything or accept any requests to be an Obama supporter, friend or fan. When I got back to my own page, there was an entry saying that I was one of 5 million plus Obama supporters. I immediately deleted the entry.
I just wanted to let fellow Freepers know about yet another deceptive tactic of the shameless Obama campaign. Never click on Obama!
What is “Facebook”?
It asks you to click on the picture if yo want to be a fan of Barry. All you have to do is remove it, not a big deal.
Oh, yea have you joined the Free Public page?
Just as long as NOBAMA doesn’t try to Friend me ... it would be so much fun DEFriending which I don’t think I’ve done to anyone...
Now that you’re an Obama supporter you have to resign from Free Republic. Sorry - those are the rules. ;o)
Thanks for the heads up! I keep hearing about Facebook nightmares lately and now I am getting “Facebookparanoia.” lol! I am not a member and I feel like once you sign up you are in a precarious world. Fox had one of their reporters hacked and they represented themselves as relatives in need of money in an emergency. They advise you to contact your friends relatives off of Facebook if that should happen.
**Sorry - those are the rules.**
Although it is a typical Liberal tactic .. If you don’t take the time to read it ... Liberals are that stupid.. and the LIBERAL LEADERS KNOW IT.
Is there a Free Republic page on FB?
It's just the 21st century passing you by. Now, back to your hole.
It’s sooooo comnfortable here in my technological black hole.
I’ve got my HP41CV, Programmable, Reverse Polish Notation (RPN) calculator here with me. I’ve got my IBM 8088 PC, with 4 (count them FOUR) raging MHz of clock speed, not one but TWO 5-1/4” floppy drives, and to top it all off, its runnning MSDOS 1.1, not that out-moded v1.0!
AND, I’ve got an Atari game system with more than 20 game cartridges, including the Pole Position car racing game - which is only the BEST racing game EVER!!!
I’m all set.
Didn't have the Atari though. I went all the way with the TI99 4/A. What a screamer.
Yes there is....as a matter of fact several.
I’m glad to know that I’m not the only person who doesn’t do facebook or any of those sites. I don’t want to spend that kind of time on the computer.
Facebook has every group you can imagine...FOXNEWS, RUSH, etc.,
Ya. Its not like FReepers spend hours upon hours a day here.
Yes...you’re right...it does. Probably even some we don’t want to hear about too. :-)
I only use facebook to check news of teaparty events...Definitely won’t get me even near anything like that!
Most of the social networking and such type of things do. It gets amazing what niche interests there are out there...
I don’t spend hours and hours here either especially when the weather is nice. I enjoy FR a lot but not 8-10 hours a day............unless I happen to be working!
Yes. Just type in freerepublic in the search. There are lots of antiFR also.
I still miss Intellivision.
Great. Now you tell me. :(
Is this in the ‘causes’ application, or the ‘pages’ section? Because for the Pages, an official Facebook application, you have to click on ‘become a fan’ to add that page to your list. However, in the third-party ‘causes’ application, as soon as you click on a ‘cause’ (organisation, political figure, etc) you automatically ‘become a supporter’ of that cause and they don’t tell you outright. So then you go to your homepage and you’ll see “far sider is now a supporter of ‘Let’s knit 1000 sweaters for homeless kittens’ on Causes” (or what have you) in your status, just because you thought it looked funny and clicked on it to check it out...
Nevertheless Vista awaits you on the distant horizon :)
Besides, Vista won’t run Autocad 9.0, will it?
