What is Freebooting?

3 May

What is freebooting? Why does it matter? How can you do your part to stop it? The definition of freebooting is the act of downloading a form of media that someone else made and uploading it as their own. Another way to put it, it’s a process of stealing someone else’s creative content on a social media platform like YouTube, and passing it off as your own on another like Facebook. You basically cut of the branding or edit a video to make it your own. Check out this YouTube video by Brad Burke of SwankyBox that explains the impact of freebooting. What do you think about it?

Facebook Just Changed Your Email Without Asking

1 Jul

E-mail sent to your @Facebook address goes to your Facebook in-box, but you don’t get a notification e-mail to say it’s there. Furthermore, Facebook doesn’t pass your email through their servers and fails to send you a copy. Many Facebook users are complaining.

How to change Facebook email settings back:

  1. Go to your Timeline.
  2. Click about, under your contact info.
  3. Scroll down to “Contact Info” and hit edit.
  4. Switch all controls to off (crossed out).
  5. This is also a good opportunity to check your privacy settings and make sure your various inboxes are visible only to friendlies.
  6. Hit save.
