Facebook Messenger Will Now Stalk Your Every Move!

Um, What?

Apparently the new Facebook Messenger, which was just updated about 4 days ago, has some new privacy settings, which some people didn’t even read. Did you know the messenger has permission to go through all your calls, call logs, text messages, and camera? There’s a fine line between getting information to help better the communication of Facebook users and going through all your private information just cause they can. What the hell Mark Zuckerberg?! I mean, okay sure, you want to get access to my camera so I can send people pictures, but why must you save that information? Not only that, why are you recording my phone conversations??? What exactly are you trying to find?? If we are worthy of being part of Facebook?

And it’s not only that, to send messages through your phone, you HAVE to download the messenger. It is required to message others. And for that, you have to sacrifice your privacy..?!

Here are some of the new permissions:

  • Allows the app to change the state of network connectivity
  • Allows the app to call phone numbers without your intervention. This may result in unexpected charges or calls. Malicious apps may cost you money by making calls without your confirmation.
  • Allows the app to send SMS messages. This may result in unexpected charges. Malicious apps may cost you money by sending messages without your confirmation.
  • Allows the app to record audio with microphone. This permission allows the app to record audio at any time without your confirmation.
  • Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.
  • Allows the app to read you phone’s call log, including data about incoming and outgoing calls. This permission allows apps to save your call log data, and malicious apps may share call log data without your knowledge.
  • Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you’ve called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals.
  • Allows the app to read personal profile information stored on your device, such as your name and contact information. This means the app can identify you and may send your profile information to others.
  • Allows the app to access the phone features of the device. This permission allows the app to determine the phone number and device IDs, whether a call is active, and the remote number connected by a call.
  • Allows the app to get a list of accounts known by the phone. This may include any accounts created by applications you have installed.

 

So, should Facebook have all these permissions to help you connect better with other users? Or should there be a little more restrictions on how much Facebook can really know about you? Is it time to maybe delete the application?! At least until Facebook restricts some of its privacy settings that is.

Religious or Nonreligious? Muslim girls nowadays..

 

Its great when a Muslim girl starts wearing a hijab after years of being non religious, but as soon as a girl takes off her hijab and becomes “Americanized” with the short shorts and drinks in her hand, that’s when i lose respect.

I’ve seen many girls nowadays, who USED to wear hijabs. Now that they are in college they forget their religion. Hijabs gone, and the short dresses are out.

Its one thing when a girl actually starts becoming religious, and gets attached to her religion. But how do you forget it later?

Taking off the hijabs for some occasions are actually okay. But taking them off, to party and drink, which is both haram, and a disgrace.

If you wear one, and you want to party and drink, don’t pretend to wear one, and take it off as soon as the party starts. Put the drink down, put on some clothes that cover your body, and walk away.

Although, those who choose not to follow the path of Islam anymore, don’t follow it, but don’t go back to being religious when you turned your back on it the first time. Just saying.

Girls vs. Girls ; Makeup vs. Guys

Guys always complain about how they hate when a girl wears makeup. Yet they always go after the ones that look the prettiest.

Fake hair, fake nails, fake eyelashes, and she’ll swear its “natural”. LOL

 
Guys say they love the natural look, but they would never look at a girl who looks “not attractive” without makeup. Yea, that’s logic. Although there are a few guys who go for the personality, applaud to them.

But face it, it’s not about the makeup at all, it’s about who looks prettier. If a girl is naturally flawless, then lucky her. If not, then hello concealer!!

So guys want a natural girl? Without makeup? What if she has scars on her face, that she’s forced to hide WITH makeup? What if she wears it to hide her flaws? If a girl has scars, and obviously no guy even pays attention to her, she’s going to wear makeup. Insecurities. Every girl has them. And its cause of guys a girl is insecure. Don’t get me wrong, of course we don’t call attention upon ourselves, but having a compliment here and there does make our day.

Fact #1: Some of us wear makeup, not to get attention, to help us feel CONFIDENT about ourselves. 

 

Let’s pretend: A guy goes out, normal day,

The one question everyone is still asking..WHY? Tragedy still without an answer.

R.I.P ♥

Donations can be made to the victims funerals. And general letters, care packages, drawings and condolences for the Newtown shooting victims can be sent to the Newtown Post Office at:

P.O. Box 3700, Newtown, Connecticut 06470

 

The case of Adam Lanza’s shooting rampage still a mystery. Sources say no evidence can be found to why he did this. When Police went back to his house in Hoboken, NJ, it turns out that the women found dead in his home was  actually his mother Nancy Lanza. So why did he go to the school and kill innocent children? His motive was to kill his mother, to which he did way before he even arrived at the school. Still no answer.

Police tried to retrieve information in a computer taken from the school but the hard drive had been damaged so badly it’s hard to get anything out. Lanza must have been hiding something.

What caused this psychotic rampage? What made him just lose it?

 

Here are the pictures of those innocent children, who now look above from heaven. ♥

28 people dead, 20 of them victims are Children.

Newtown, Ct. Children being brought to safety.

Hearing this story is truly heartbreaking. The school that held about 600 students, faced a horrific scene that no children ever needs to go through. An elementary school from k-4 grades, of kids ages 5 to 10 has been going through the most traumatic event. Parents are still shocked of what their child had just endured, and for their child to witness such event. 20 of those parents never thought today will be the last day they sent their child to school, and getting the news of them never returning back home. It’s still unbelievable such heartless people are still in this world.

The gunman who was found dead, had shot himself inside the school, after his shooting spree which also included his mother, Nancy Lanza, and her students as well. Nancy Lanza was a

Obama Takes it All..

Who do you vote for?

It’s Election Day! Did you vote?

Could it be the last for Obama? Or are we counting on seeing another 4 years of him?

If you haven’t voted yet, you still have some time. But is it worth waiting hours in line in this weather?

Remember, EVERY VOTE COUNTS! 

Just kidding. If I learned anything in Government from High School, then, NO, every vote does NOT count!
