I love deviantART! " This. Was. Delicious. "

OMG MOAR POEMS!  Let's Journal!!

Just had an entire Medium Pepperoni pizza because my friend wanted nothing to do with it :|  Ah, feels like a glutton.  This cat needs to MOVE before this oily abomination makes its way into my bloodstreams!  Seriously though, it was delicious!!  Cheap, good, and filling food.. what can beat pizza in this niche department?

who wants to pizza with me?! :D

I'm on fire! Cat. OUT!

Every waking second of the day, somewhere, somehow, on the internet, there's something that will make your day.

I love deviantART! " So, this article about Facebook messenger got shared by quite a few of my friends from two days ago "



here's the link to the article:
thebull.cbslocal.com/2014/08/0…

the "the bull" in the URL sounds about accurate.  In fact, I'm questioning the reason why this article is being shared so widely on Facebook.  From the tone of the author, I don't think he's trying to be funny or ironic.  But I'm also wondering (because my friends are mostly young people), whether people are sharing this article as a joke, irony, or do they actually think this is really information.  

For those of you who thinks that article is "information".. No, it's not.  Facebook messenger asks for the same permission any other chat applications would request.

So here's a counter list to the list of the fearmonger:  
- It asks to access your contacts
    - ever notice you have the option to import your contact list into your messenger?
- It asks to access your microphone
    - ever notice you need to use your microphone when you start an audio chat with someone on messenger? 
- It asks to access your camera
    - ever notice you use your camera to take pictures when you use the "take and share pictures" option on facebook?

The guy who wrote the article, Nick Russo's right, if he doesn't write this article to "protect" the technologically challenged, no one will.  And that's because no one has the heart to pull such a prank and spread mass hysteria based on nothing but conspiracy and science fiction. 

I'm not here to defend facebook (hell these guys are notorious for tapping into people's privacy.  probably partners with the NSA), but it bothers me when someone starts a baseless hate campaign.  Remember Suey Park's ungrounded, baseless, childish campaign to #CancelColbert?  I'm sorry Suey, I'm asian and I don't see the "struggles" you so proudly boast about on the Huffington Post.
