Facebook, is it safe or not?

Facebook is known for its incredible social sharing on the app. But things you don't know about Facebook are being unmasked here. Today we are going to talk about reasons to not trust Facebook with your personal information, or any sensitive information you are sharing through the Facebook platform.









Facebook Ads


Facebook ads are known for showing things of your best interest, but did you know that these ads are tracking your every move on Facebook, and when you click on the ads which they provide to you, it logs all your information via 3rd party companies. These 3rd party companies see your info because Facebook allows it within Terms Of Service Policy's. At a Certain Extent Facebook will give these 3rd party's limited info about you, however its still information that you don't want not everyone, or anyone at all to have.




Facebook Call Tracking & Recording


When you are in a Facebook call, you believe that it is just you and the other person you are talking to. Well, this is not true at all. The call is being recorded by Facebooks technology and sent to them. Its no shock that these big companies are recording your calls. Apparently, this is for security reasons, but sometimes it is unsafe to let Facebook see your call. For example, lets say your calling someone about very sensitive and/or private information that you dont want anyone else in existence to see, well, there goes your privacy.




Should We use Facebook?


You can use Facebook, but it is not recommended due to the reasons we have just listed above. An open source alternative to Facebook would be Mastodon.  Its fully open source and free, and you can get it at mastodon.online.

Starship SN10 Aborts at T - 0 Seconds for its 10km test flight.

  Moments ago, Starship SN10 attempted a flight to 10km, to then orient itself into a unique horizontal bellyflop position, flip itself upright after it has descended to about 1km, deploy the landing legs, and touch down on the landing pad softly. This vehicle, Starship Number 10, uses Liquid CH4 (methane) and Liquid Oxygen aka LOX/LO2, used by its 3 powerful Raptor engines.  Today, SpaceX started their official stream for the Starship SN10 Flight. SpaceX have privated the stream replay, so we cannot replay it. In case you want the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDEgFsefrGw&t=541s The vehicle began fueling up with Methane and LOX, and then shortly after, it started the engine chill process, which is the process of chilling the engines down in preparation for engine ignition, so the engine material does not crack or get damaged from sudden shock. The vehicle attempted to start up its 3 Raptor engines, by opening the fuel & oxidizer valves, starting up the turbopumps, sho

What is “the best” programming language?

Programming languages, there are so many of them. Some programming languages are way easier to learn than other ones. But which programming language, is “the best” programming language? This question, it is not really answerable. There is no “best programming languages”, they are all meant for different things, well, MOST of them. If I were to compare 2 different programming languages, meant for very similar things, like Batch and Bash, I would say Batch is easier, as its Syntax is not as confusing as Bash’s to the average person. Here is another example, C# is primarily used for computer applications, mostly on Windows, and HTML is a markup language, being used to make websites. I cannot compare C# (it is pronounced “See Sharp” if you didn’t know) because they are used for completely different things. It wouldn’t make sense to say, “C# is way better”, because what is it better at? Developing desktop applications? Sure! Then I can say HTML is better at making websites, it is not a logi

How do you know the universe was not created a few minutes ago?

       The universe is the giant area of space that we live in, which is observable. Anything past our universal border is not in our universe. People do say the universe is constantly expanding, but there is no proof of that, as the "imaginary" or, maybe not imaginary border at the "end" of our universe. But, how do you know that the universe even exists? Were you even in it last week? Did last week even exist? Last week, the universe could have been created, and you do not have proof against it. All of your knowledge and memory could have easily popped into existence a few seconds ago, tricking you into thinking you have existed for longer than you think. This is likely, but also unlikely, it is a 50/50 chance. A reason that this is unlikely is, there are a lot of things that do not make sense in our universe. Like, why does matter attract matter, resulting in gravity? This exists in our universe, but can it exist in a different universe? Not really, or most likel
