In a seemingly never-ending string of damaging disclosures about its users' privacy concerns, Facebook has reportedly been releasing user data to ad companies that hadn't even asked for the info.

Well you know they have to make a profit. Ask them and they will tell you so. Even though everypage has adds that just isn't enough profit. Greed is consuming this country. I got a newsletter the other day about things you do not do on these social networks, Don't list your hometown, don't list the year you were born, don't name your family members, never put up your address or any phone number, do not use your primary email account. Monitor your children's accounts. If they put up a fight then you know they are hiding something. Finally just use some common sense if there is any left any more.

STOP KILLING WILD GEESE IN THE NETHERLANDS.

Original Message:

RIA S. petition I did not know her, and asked to share her petition. As ill as Ria is, she managed to write her letter.
Her last wish, was to have her Geese saved, by reaching the target of 5000 signatures. We have 1683 more signatures needed. Ria said she would be pleased to know her work will continue.
Ria is our Care2 member, who worked tirelessly and selflessly. I did not have the gift of knowing Ria. Ria asks for a last wish, to save the geese from eventual extinction.
Will you sign please? Or put this up on the news or face book? Please help her have her last wish granted. Such a small price to pay, for Ria's last wish before she leaves Care2 and this world. Will you ask for signatures, and help, far and wide, to grant Ria her last wish to save geese from extinction? Perhaps write to ALL the animal protection organisations, bird sanctuaries, wwf, bird places, Green Peace, RSPCA, Legal Animal Defence Fund, Care2 Staff, Humane Society? If we all thought of something, and JUST DO ONE action, JUST IMMAGINE what we can do as collectively.
Letís BE UNITED AS ONE ON CARE2, TO HELP SAVE LIVES OF ANIMALS, PEOPLE, ENVIRONMENT AND SO MUCH MORE. WE beg of you to put aside our differences, and work together on Care2 international Platform to MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Those who seek to destroy the geese AND SO MANY OTHER LIVING BEINGS to extinction, you are the ones who stand in-between the destroyers and freedom. The destroyers started this survival struggle, people like Ria started these race to save them from extinction, some know I had found this forgotten petition, BUT IT IS YOU, EACH INDIVIDUAL...IT IS YOU WHO WILL ENSURE THE CONTINUATION AND SUCCESS OF SURVIVAL AND FREEDOM...birds of the air should be allowed to flock together in freedom. Did you know Geese are the only few animals that can fly over EVEREST? LETíS TAKE THEIR EXAMPLE, RIA'S EXAMPLE. AIM HIGH, AND REACH the skies above. Like Ria and those before us.
Ria wrote her last message on her page. RIA'S geese petition, has been tragically forgotten... until now.
Eco, written on behalf of the geese and Ria.

A MESSAGE FROM RIA:
Th:17.05.2010 18:32:51 00
Dear Regina,
Thank you for your feedback and sweet words, but sweetie unless you people can find somebody to take over my petition (the best is a Dutch person), there's nothing I can do. I'm just to sick/... (personal info deleted by eco)
They started killing/gassing all the geese in 2008 at the island of Texel, but many more provinces are killing/gassing geese or planning to.
I can't do anything with my petition anymore, again unless somebody takes over my petition and get in touch with the wildlife protection here "Faunabescherming" so they can use those signatures.
Thanks for everything Regina and thank everybody you know for their efforts and prayers, I'm very touched by all the response, but cannot answer them personal anymore.
lots of love Ria.

You have received the following feedback on your petition, "STOP KILLING WILD GEESE IN THE NETHERLANDS.URGENT. !!!",

DO AT LEAST ONE THING TO SAVE THE ANIMALS, PLANET, PEOPLE, and RAINFORESTS ENVIRONMENT...THE WORLD..DO IT ONCE A DAY..WILL YOU DO THIS? WILL YOU PUT ASIDE ALL DIFFERENCES, AND FOCUS ON DOING SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE WITH YOUR EMOTIONS, ACTIONS, TIME ETC? JUST ONE THING? Please? If we let time, circumstance, energies take control, then they will take over you and those it will affect. But if we do what we can, then we are less likely to get an unfavourable outcome.

Lets turn into Eco Warriors and Not Eco Worriers. Those who make a huge difference, are often the least noticed. Have you noticed. Often the good we do, it isnt always up to us to know, but surely it is good enough to know you have tried..your very very very best.

That's why my profile info on Facebook is blank or nonsense and only use it to share public information and action alerts, but I still get messages at all my email-accounts from them.....

But in this time of indiscretions, is it really surprising?

I just googled and Google told me I had visited a page already twice....now that's the kind of things I like to keep record of.....Their Adsense makes no sense.
