The New Facebook~ Porn & Violence

A few days ago in my news feed on Facebook I was shocked, stunned, sickened and angry  at what I saw.

For a split second I thought nah…couldn’t be, I’m just imagining this.

Then….WAIT!

I don’t imagine stuff like this!!!! Ever. Never. Ever.

I quickly looked at who was posting such filth on my news feed and didn’t “know” the person. Yes, the person was my “friend” but I don’t know them personally. Explanation…

I play a game on Facebook so I have added friends for the purpose of the game.

I bet you can imagine how quickly I beheaded de-friended that person. Yikes! This is terrible.

Later in the day I am minding my own business when,  SMACK! I am assaulted again. This time by someone else.  And then Whack! Again. WTH. I am thinking….Oh my goodness, what’s the world coming to? The masses are all headed down a dark, dark road I tell you. And it’s happening quick, just look at Facebook!

The next day I heard a news report that Facebook had been attacked by porn hackers.

Poor Facebook. (I’m crying big salty tears for you.)

Hey!…..What about all the users, like me, who now have terrible images burned into the gray matter of our brains like molten branding iron tattoos?

Well…. I’m angry. For one, with my privacy settings I shouldn’t be seeing any of that sh*t. Two, Facebook is being panty-waisted about addressing the attack and thirdly, I was still receiving the barrage of porn last night. I haven’t logged on yet today, frankly I’m afraid to.

The icing on the Anger Cake is; I tried to contact Facebook last night to file a complaint and failed. Not because I didn’t try. I spent an hour trying to find a submission form, an email address, a phone number or even a physical address. Nothing. There is no way to file a complaint with Facebook. They allow you to mark items as spam or porn, ect. But you can not, in no way, shape or form, communicate with the social giant. What kind of an oxy-moron is that? The social media giant is unreachable.

I have decided I will boycott Facebook until I hear on the news that they have the issue fixed and the bad guys are in prison.

Safely behind bars where they can take more pictures for their next hack project.

  1. Oh no. I never joined Facebook because I thought there’d be nothing of interest on it (and because I was pretty sure my 20 year old son wouldn’t “Friend” me and I couldn’t handle the rejection). Now I find I’ve missed being hacked into viewing porn when I hadn’t even been expecting it???? I am missing SO MUCH by not being on there…

    And Facebook isn’t the only oxy-moronic company. I remember trying to report a TELEPHONE outage to my phone company and there was no number listed … they wanted me to email them.

    • Oh Elyse, right now there is plenty of interest. Everyone that is being hacked is outraged. What’s sad is the hackers choose random people, so those poor souls are getting blamed for sending the pornography. I went to one of the subjects home page and people were just tearing them up, when in fact they were not the guilty party.

      When Facebook isn’t rated XXX, it is a great way to keep in touch with family. Surprisingly all my kids friended me. Maybe it was the threat of dis-inheriting….

  2. How interesting! I haven’t logged on since maybe Friday or Thursday, so I’m going to log on now just because. That is really annoying and If I see any crap like that I’ll be uber pissed. Thanks for the warning!! I love your blog header photo, btw…I have a thing for sunflowers. Drinking tea from a sunflower mug as I type! Is it a photo you took?

    • I logged on tonight and thankfully my eyes are still intact. Maybe they have the issue under control. We can hope.
      Yes, I took the photo of the sunflowers. We grow them every year. They are hardy and fool-proof, my kind of flower.

  3. Even the author Wally Lamb had porn pasted on his FB page. He was certainly surprised.
    What made me cringe two weeks ago is that I started to get friend requests (from people I do not know) from Facebook on my WORK email. I have never given FB that email address. I wrote in a complaint – it took forever to find anyplace to send it to – and they told me I was mistaken! Umm, NO.

  4. The problem with Facebook is that,even though they “claim” to be about the users security, they really aren’t. About a week or so ago they enacted a new security feature called “Secure Browsing.” Basically if this is set you are on a secure connection so it is difficult if not impossible to hack your account while you are logged in.
    And guess what, when this feature was enacted by facebook, guess what they had it set to? You guessed it, no enabled so your account was wide open to any hacker.

    • Very interesting, strange that the porn hack happened at about the same time as this new security feature was implemented. Makes a person wonder.
      Thanks for the info. I will check my settings next time I log on to make sure all my features are set correctly.
