Dimensional Thinking – The Mandela (Mandala) Effect, Forbidden Knowledge, Forbidden History, and Why We Should Not Be Afraid

I have ALWAYS been the kind of person slightly on the outside of society.
When I was younger I dabbled in Wicca, was interested in UFOS, mysticism, etc. I didn’t understand things that I do now. What I am saying is these recent changes have not been sudden for me. Yes, things are speeding up phenomenally for me since about the beginning of this year, maybe even more recent than that, but for ME, I have been on an upward slope for awhile. I believe part of it has to do with spiritual development.
I am a recovering addict. I have been in a 12 step program for over 10 years, with some hiccups along the way. I currently have 6 years clean. Anyways, it has FORCED me to incorporate what we call “spiritual principles” in my life. You can call them whatever you like but they are the base teachings of any old or new belief, myth, story, knowledge, anything “people like us” are finding the common thread to in EVERYTHING we find when we research. I have began to call it “Dimensional Thinking”. I call it this because if you layer all the old and new stories above and below each other but then reach out in all directions to different cultures, geographies, races, then you take what you think you learned and let it remain fluid, not become rigid; the thinking is more representative of a dimensional pattern than we are used to.
Anyways, I believe my pursuit in trying to “practice these principles in all our affairs” has kept me sane. I am not speaking religiously or even spiritually, per se. The common thread in everything we are learning is that Love (meaning more than any one WORD can describe, which is why symbols, that the eye turns to energy and frequency, and the same for sounds, are a much better form of learning and communication [search for David Icke]), being the main way we function, and all the things that come from that like compassion, tolerance, unity, willingness, open-mindedness, etc, are a part of this. Fear, anger, resentments, hate, and all beyond that keep us small.
Humility is the most important of them all.
Now when u look at it that basically, doesn’t that look like what EVERY teaching, story, religion, battle between good and evil, even agnostically….all of it is saying?
We complicate this by our pursuit of knowledge, but something in us inherently craves knowledge. That is the mystery for me.
Einstein said something along the lines of you cannot solve problems with the same level of consciousness that created them.
Ask questions. My motto for years has been Educate Yourself. I have actually had this blog for awhile called F33dYourHead. Now I know the implications of anything to do with Wonderland, Alice, the White Rabbit so I somewhat regret the decision to name it that but my intentions were pure.  But we can’t keep chasing our tail with questions (Ouroborus- the snake eating it’s own tail forever). We have to be on a path alongside the questions. Use your intuition, not your reptilian 5 senses.

The Ouroborus

 
Starting to see the story emerging? It goes so much deeper. Our ancestors used symbolism in stories because it evokes things inside us words alone cannot and while the written word is fabulous, we were able to maintain soooooooooo much of our past, it is the symbols within it (bible stories, kabbalah, sacred geometry, creation myths, cultural beliefs, gods, etc.) that is the message; the apple, the serpent, the ring, etc.5349648_f520 Look for these things. The answer is IN us, but I believe from things I’ve learned that there are other real entities out there.
Some places I’ve looked and some may already have looked here; remember you cannot buy into any one thing whole heartedly 100%, just hear the common threads, whether these people are religious, atheists, etc:

Trey Smith – he has a YouTube channel with soooooooooo much info. From the Days of Noah, nephilim, Christian camp, but like I said the importance is in connecting the dots, the common threads.

Anything Transhumanism – ties into nephilim and matrix reality and end game of one world government and the elite

Extra-dimensional beings

The coming deception

A YouTube channel called Spirit Science Central

Thoth

Hermes Trismegistus

Aleister Crowley – careful on this one, the most wicked man alive but it will help to understand things on the THEM side of this, who is helping THEM if there is a them or it or whatever that storyline is representing through time, and other things.

The Bock Saga – about sound frequencies and the ring especially, especially the lecture by Tony Topping

300px-Pieter_Bruegel_the_Elder_-_The_Tower_of_Babel_(Vienna)_-_Google_Art_Project

The Tower of Babel – and a lot of things biblically related because the stories there are telling us something. I believe this story is about another time that hidden powers (the elite on earth and their unseen, lying, not completely of this world “partners” tried to reach a state of their own godliness (transhumanism) and be their own creators in some way but something went wrong.aliens-shiningones The story in the Bible is that everyone on Earth spoke the same language, somehow they ended up in Shinar (Shinar? like shine? like elohim? the shining ones? Anunnaki? light? like the name Lucifer meaning light? Common themes again). Anyway, Nimrod (another figure to research and I think it’s funny myself that calling someone a nimrod is calling them incredibly stupid), great grand son of Noah, king of Shinar, “a mighty hunter before the Lord (Orion?)”, or in other translations “a mighty hunter in the face of the Lord”, who represents no actual historical figure but is probably like any other of these stories a symbolic representation of something, here possibly being a group of people, beings, what have you that were in opposition to “God” (what does God represent? All things good. Spiritual Principles, the real us, the Truth, the Way [the way to what or where and opposed to what other way to that same place or to be]).

He builds this Tower of Babel. Again, it probably was not a real tower. It is said it was made so high as to reach God. Symbolically, they were trying to artificially find a shortcut or trying to create things artificially (this can play into transhumanism, gene splicing, look up the spider goat, it relates back again to the nephilim, this is just one interpretation but in reality it is probably this and more). I’m sure they were using the wider population to build the tower in the story but symbolically, like today the few were guiding the many to reach a goal455613337 ( the pyramid, the all-seeing eye. If you look at that it clearly represents a small few at the top separated and illuminated (Illuminati, the shining ones, light whatever that truly represents I don’t know) with eye opened and the rest of the pyramid is us). The story goes God was not happy and he confused everyone by supernaturally causing all of the people to speak different languages so they could no longer understand each other or work together as a one world entity (one world government) to reach the goal of the few.
SUPERNATURALLY CONFUSING THE PEOPLE, CHANGING THEIR LANGUAGE, SO THEY NO LONGER SPOKE THE SAME LANGUAGE…..DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR TO WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW?
Does it have to be God doing it or a god? No, yes, who knows. We don’t know.
I believe that these things happening are FOR us.
The so called Mandela Effect (I hate that name why aren’t we calling it the Mandala Effect sacred-geometry-141-endre-balogh-400x250[a diagram representing the universe or cosmos in the microcosm. In Hinduism it is a yantra – reality lived – inner/outer world. Is that not perfect or what?]) could be the universes way of protecting us, a fail-safe from something.

If you look at some of the Atlantis, Thoth, Lemurian stories which is more about human consciousness than religion it talks about how we use to know about these types of phenomenon.Atlantisdiag.png It talks about cycles of consciousness, so much information. Again, I warn….you cannot totally envelope yourself in the teachings or words of any one school of thought. You would only be imprisoning yourself again to closed-mindedness, would not have the full story. When we stop thinking fluidly (search the Sacred Feminine, right brained vs left brained, sacred geometry and the Fibonacci Spiral representing how male and female energy is inherent and both necessary, Lemurian myths talk about how we have become a right brained consciousness ) we focus our attention in on the details and ignore our intuition.

tumblr_inline_nmej9lb3yZ1rfb4ez_500

Fibonacci Spiral with male and female energy represented in the angular and curve.

I beleive this is why we continue to feel let down on our spiritual journeys. So many teachings tell us the answer is within us (not that we are our own Gods or our own Creators, this is where others of us go wrong, but that the ability to navigate our own intuition is present). We have to believe in ourselves again, begin to trust your own feelings, your own ideas, where things are guiding you in YOUR life.

For example, this is my first time being able to write this all out into one thought but I am confident in it because I know myself, through some real sweat and blood work (that fortunately I’ve been blessed enough to be faced to do because of my addiction issues but would not work in this form for other people) and I know that my two main “talents” or strengths have always been in being able to take facts and figures and pieces of the small pictures and be able to see a larger picture. Also, I have always been able to write well and in a way that is meaningful, flowing, and engages a reader. That is probably why I never felt comfortable doing videos.
Those are MY universal talents. They make up me but they, I believe, are also meant to be used to assist, in some small way, my small part of the whole, whatever that may be.
I believe (I keep saying I believe because this is where I am at this point in my learning) that we are meant to be more aware of the whole than we are. That’s why something feels off, life never feels….right. I never feel…..whole.
I think when we attempt to understand these questions, this fundamental void inside of us that whatever it is, whatever happened to us, or that we did to ourselves, or others did to us, or whatever causes things like our ego, self-righteousness, judgement, our need to be right, all of our inherent faults (look at any story relating to 1974744-EHFFLAPO-7Original Sin, the Fall of Man, or Fall of Consciousness levels and more. They all have to do with an event or symbolizes our inherent ability to climb past a certain point in understanding) to block us from being able to connect the dots correctly. Some recognize this but some continue forward wholly believing they are in the right. That the end justifies the means. Look at stories of super heroes and villains even in modern times. Some villains or even the “bad guy” in stories, books, and movies start out believing they are doing the right thing but then will be willing to do anything to accomplish their goal. Even the good guys struggle with this at times. Only, to realize before it is too late not to cross that line that makes them what we feel is heroic or honorable.
Holy shit rant, but I digress.

Also, educate yourself on quantum physics, quantum mechanics, metaphysics, entanglement, modern sciences. It is all related. Old stories, new stories, old beliefs, new science.
There is a truth to as above, so below, as without, so within. We have proven this.
I believe this is true for EVERYTHING and so did others from our past.

Decoding The Truth

A Feud Between Biblical Archeologists Goes To Court, an article written by Nina Burleigh for Time in 2013 has peeked my interest in this age of an information deluge (maybe pun intended?).

I have felt some kind of a calling lately, we can call it a very strong urge if you like, to head down a road of research and information gathering on our history, spiritual matters, our future, what is happening in the present; as do many other people in these times.

I was experiencing an information overload and so decided to just “relax and watch tv”.  Even this is difficult for me to commit to, so I settled on documentaries, went on my Amazon Prime and found a show called Decoding the Ancients.  The man hosting the show is Simcha Jacobovici, an Israeli-Canadian film director, producer, freelance journalist, and writer.  Also, he is better known as The Naked Archeologist.  You can read more about him at the link above.  He has several degrees and a background in Religious Studies.

Where my own amateur research is taking me, one direction anyways, seems to be similar.  That when we focus in on or “buy into” any one ideology we are being fed as a whole, already all packaged up, we are missing a great deal of relevant information.

There are newer articles on this case, by the way, he won.  This is just the one, like I said, that peeked my interest.

If you are a fellow Rabbit Hole diver you may have already noticed similarities in old and modern stories, myths, traditions, beliefs.  The thinking that we are used to, angular, analytical, from here to there, linearly has also been referred to as left-brained thinking, male thinking, etc.

I am not going to cite resources, it is preferable for us to have our curiosities tickled and then seek the information on our own.  Start with any of the modern conspiracy theories like The New World Order and Satan Worship or The Tower of Babel (completely male brained group of people building a tower to God), alien mythology and how the story is that they have lost their emotions, empathy, ability to create art, to love, Lemurian myths and how the Martians came and they were completely left brained and began guiding us in that direction and we had a fall in consciousness (The Fall of Man), the Gnostic teachings of the Demiurge and the Archons.  Down and down we go.

tumblr_inline_nmej9lb3yZ1rfb4ez_500

Male and Female represented in Fibonacci Spiral.  You get to the same place but in different ways.  Keep going down the Rabbit Hole on this one.  It leads to the serpent, thus the curse of the woman and the serpent, how she will be subservient to the man, etc, etc.

In many old and new traditions there seems to be a theme that we have somehow lost, had taken away, are closed off from right brained thinking, female thinking, fluid thinking, the ability to look at several things at once and see truth.

Using this model, trying to use both ways of thinking is how I have settled in to my learning.  It has expanded my ability to understand the information I’m finding and that is being given to me immensely.  I retain it, I build on it.  I have a rule.  I don’t stay on any one ideology whole heartedly.  That is settling into left brained thinking.  I keep things fluid, not my life, not the way I live, just my information gathering and processing.

How does this relate.  What does it have to do with the price of tea in China?

My searching and the truths I am finding and the things I am experiencing, i.e. The Mandela Effect (I’m still confused on this as it has happened to me only recently and I am not ready to talk about it) have led me to accept Christianity and the Bible as containing many truths.  However, experience has shown me, if I stop there I will know only half-truths.

I like this take on exploring the Bible, he has done good research.  The article and he court case allow me to feel comfortable that he genuinely believes in what he does.

It is a good SOURCE of information, but again, I cannot let it be another TRUTH, but some of the truth.

Thanks for reading.  Keep chasing the White Rabbit.

What Ignorance Can Do To Individuals, Communities, and Society in Two Small Examples

Well, I had an eventful morning. I went out to get coffee and cigarettes (first let me say, uh, yum) immediately upon rolling out of bed.

I was at the 7-11 talking to an old friend I grew up with for a while about a few different subjects on family and life. As I went to leave there was some commotion outside.

I learned two things today and they both lead to the same conclusion; what the motto of F33DyourHEAD is and my own personal motto since I can remember.

Educate yourself!!!!!!

promo212301640

1. Educate yourself on what your kids are being taught; whether in school, church, girl scouts, boy scouts, etc.

My friend talked recently with my sister who told her their church told her kids that there is no such thing as Santa. One of my sister’s children is old enough to know this anyways but, the other…..if they only knew that the littlest one’s father died on Christmas Eve, tragically, which will probably scar him for the rest of his life, they might have known better than to strip the one thing away from him on Christmas that still allowed it to be somewhat magical.  On a day when sadness is stronger than the joy of ripping open presents and meeting with family he will remember that as the day he learned his father died and now the day when Santa died and nothing in this world is as we hope or believe.  Possibly, down the road, he will be ok, but there is also a possibility it could lead to a more negative outcome. My sister tried to correct what they said but it was already too late.

2. Educate yourself when a situation is happening before you go taking pictures, posting them on Facebook and going off on rants which have absolutely nothing to do with what is happening.

We were outside smoking a cig, finishing up our conversation and some people drove up and parked at the 7-11 all in a hissy because if we had bothered to look right around the corner we would have seen a school bus full of small children and what looked like it being pulled over, the children taken off and the police officer going on and for some reason a prison bus pulled over on the next block ahead. It happens to be, I found out from my fellows, that today, a local high school was having a protest about bullying because some kid was beat up on a bus and is in a coma (according to the not so sure sources).  Here is a link to the actual incident.  The issue discussed at a recent school board meeting about school violence, I assume, was the reason for the protest.  Again, this is an assumption. They were on their way to the protest.  One man feverishly showed us pictures he took of the police pulling the kids from the bus and was figuring out how to post them to Facebook.  A woman commented on the sad state of the public school system in our town and city.  Another women commented on racism which, even if knowing nothing about the situation, is a large leap in logical thinking and reasoning.  The comment started with, Look I’m not racist or anything, but….” and I stopped listening to the rest.  The other woman who worked at the store (not my friend) came out to see and commented walking away, “That’s why I don’t want my kids going to public school” and walked back in the store to surely have gone on to tell the unknown versions of the tale to many others walking in that day, thus spreading an uneducated guess on what was happening.  There was speculation of a fight on the bus, a possibility that it had to do with the protest, etc.

Me, being who I am, said goodbye to my friend got in my car, drove around the block and asked the man filming from the local news, “What happened?”.  I was told by the cameraman the bus hit a prison transport vehicle.  Again, still not the exact truth.

Here is the simple truth of it, according to Steve Thomas (you can find his information here), head bus driver for the Elmira City School District.  The prison bus backed up to make room for another school bus and the Department of Corrections vehicle’s rear window moved the mirror on the school bus in question, no damage reported.  That’s it.  The children were taken off of the bus after the police arrived, which is their call.  The procedures state, again according to Steve Thomas, that names and birth dates and positions on the bus need to be recorded.  The students were then put on another bus and sent to school.  I went online in search of procedures in the event of a collision of a school bus and another vehicle.  I have included links to these documents in the article.  I tried to do a search for NYS Department of Corrections Accident Procedures but came up with nothing worthy of sharing a link to.  I am sure for security reasons these are kept confidential.

I tried to find the procedures for Chemung County or the Elmira City School District online and came up with nothing specific, so I did the next available thing and found a procedure for another county in New York State not too far from our own.

When looking at the school bus procedures for Putnam County (another county in New York State), it states under Procedure For Bus Driver:

“All passengers should remain in the vehicle unless fire or other hazardous conditions exist that warrant evacuation. In any event, it is extremely important that injured persons are not moved unless a hazard exists that presents an imminent danger of further injury.”

However, it also says under Procedure for General Operation:

“Emergency services agencies (police, fire, EMS), if called, will take charge of the accident scene upon their arrival. A school district representative (the superintendent, or person designated by the superintendent to have decision-making authority) will be dispatched to the accident scene (distance and time permitting), will report to the command post and will participate in unified command.”

The police had a right to decide in this case to remove the children from the bus.

As for the prison transport van it is unclear whether any prisoners were even aboard.  Logic follows that precautions would be taken to ensure that all locks were still functioning and that there were no escapes before almost anything else was done, including removing the children from the bus.

If you would like to read further about any of the procedures, please follow the links included in this article.

My main point in this second lesson is that without knowing what is happening we can cause a mass hysteria in a city before any facts are even released.  People at the protest for bullying today will surely spread the rumors of the school bus seen being “pulled over by police” and their children unjustly dragged from the school bus, assumingly afraid and scarred by the incident and put in potential danger by the proximity of a prison transport van.  This can add irrational fuel to an already boiling over issue.

When we don’t use the tools available to us to educate ourselves about issues and situations in our lives, things are children and ourselves are being taught, damage can happen, and exponentially so in the second case.  Personal responsibility for the knowledge we have or need to obtain is paramount to a saner world.

We Know What You Are Doing

I Know What You Did 5 Minutes Ago is a comedy routine by a man named Tom Scott based on the privacy settings people have (or lack thereof to be more exact) on their social networking sites.  You would be amazed at the information people make public: phone numbers, check-ins at their own home, whether they are currently home or not, mother’s maiden name, how much they hate their boss, etc.

This video was the inspiration for 18 year old Callum Haywood to start a website called We Know What You Are Doing, that queries Facebook’s Graph API and outputs the results.  The raw JSON output can be found here.

The lesson to be learned is simply know your own privacy settings.  Make sure everything is set to what you want.  Don’t make everything public.

Malicious, Spammy, Scamming, Likejacking or Just Downright Annoying Apps on Facebook

So…I’m sick of warning everyone individually about all the shitty, spammy, and annoying apps that are out there in Facebook World.  So I am going to start this guide.

If there is a Web of Trust warning there will be a photo of the Web of Trust Scorecard and a link to read the comments people left about why they gave it such a bad warning.

What is Web of Trust you ask??

Web of Trust is the leading website reputation rating tool and one of Mozilla’s most popular add-ons. Our safe surfing tool uses an intuitive traffic-light style rating system to help you see which websites are trusted when you search, surf and shop online.

WOT ratings are powered by a global community of millions of trustworthy users who have rated millions of websites based on their experiences. The WOT add-on provides reputation ratings to search results when you use Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Bing, Wikipedia and other popular sites, helping you protect your computer and personal information. Your online email account – Google Mail, Yahoo! Mail and Hotmail is also protected.

Here is the link to add it on to your Mozilla Firefox Browser:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/wot-safe-browsing-tool/

If it has not been rated yet, or they have been tricky and are hiding under the general “facebook apps” links, I will just put a picture and a description as to the issue.

fb5.apps.friendsy.us

Friend Buzz is the general name that this app lies under.  What it looks like on your wall is this:

Here is another app from Friend Buzz with bad ratings:

The ratings for this are the worst in every category.  Here is the link to WOT:

http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/fb5.apps.friendsy.us

So in general, just don’t add anything having to do with Friend Buzz.

It is difficult to find a rating on Web of Trust.  Here is some info I found at this website:

http://www.spotnblog.com/facebook-scam-fun-in-your-name/

“Do not install the following Facebook App: Fun in Your Name! by – Senang Solutions specialized in Internet Social Networking Applications.

This App is what you call Likejacking, a form of clickjacking, is a malicious technique of tricking users of a website into posting a Facebook status update for a site they did not intentionally mean to “like”.

Stay away from these kind of “like” comments or Apps, because the people behind it earns loads of money on you being stupid. In worst case you will end of with a Malware infected PC.”

Info on Stalker Apps –

These are the apps in which you are promised to be shown who looks at your profile the most. First of all, if you have clicked on these you are so gullible your mama should have just shoved you back in rather than expose the world to your stupidity. Here is a link for info about these:

http://arstechnica.com/web/news/2011/01/those-facebook-stalker-apps-they-dont-work-so-avoid-them.ars

Beware the following messages and/or wall postings from Facebook friends:

Example #1:

I’ve just seen who checks me out the most here on Facebook! You can see who stalks you too!

http://todayurl.com/stalker

Example #2:

I just saw who STALKS me here on Facebook. You can see who creeps around your profile too!

http://todayurl.com/stalker

Example #3:

I just saw who CREEPS around my pics the most here on Facebook. You can see who stalks you too!

http://todayurl.com/stalker

These are all variants of the same scam. If you click on the link, you’re taken to a page that requests your permission to access private information. If you allow it to do so, the message immediately reposts itself on all your friends’ walls and you’re prompted to fill out a phony questionnaire.

What it won’t do is show you your Facebook “stalkers” or reveal the names of people who’ve visited your Facebook page or viewed your photos. The whole thing is a ruse to trick more people to installing the useless app and clicking through to survey pages.

Then there is the “Slap Myself in the Face for Being So Fucking Stupid” Link that people just have to see:

Girl Killed Herself After Father Posted On Her Wall

I will add more as I find them!! Feel free to pass this note around and tag your idiotic friends who need to see this cause they swear up and down the app is fine. Also, private message me any that YOU find that I have missed.

Update: Although this one is not new I just saw it on a friend’s page.

The Dislike Button

Here is a link with some information about this one:

http://mashable.com/2011/05/17/facebook-dislike-button-scam/

Get Control of your Private Information!

Hear Us Now : a project of Consumers Union:.

Send a message to your representative through the above link.

Bills have been introduced that will put you in control of your personal information while online or on your smartphone!

Now we need to get these online privacy bills passed, and we need consumers like you to weigh in. Opposition is expected to be strong, since online tracking of your private information is big business!

This latest bill would require companies to honor your decision if you do not want to be tracked online. And it would hold tracking companies accountable if they go against your wishes. The rules also would apply to smartphones, too.

Facebook Security and Information

Image representing Facebook as depicted in Cru...

Image via CrunchBase

The idea for this blog entry started this morning after 3 or 4 cups of coffee and 5 episodes of Futurama on Netflix.

I began by creating an event to let all of my friends know about a recent change on Facebook.  I started searching for other things about facebook that I might be unaware of.  I was partly motivated also by the staggering amount of spam and malicious apps and links being posted to my page by friends who are sometimes completely unaware of the posts or unaware that the posts have malicious links.

Here are some things I found:

1.  I Can’t See All My Friends’ Posts

Have you noticed that you are only seeing certain people’s statuses over and over again? I looked this up myself guys so it is not a spam or malicious.

1. At the top of your Homepage (not your profile, your Home Page) it says “Top News” and “Most Recent”.

2. Click on the small arrow (triangle facing down) next to “Most Recent”.

3. Go down to “Edit Options” at the bottom and click on it.

4. A box will pop-up saying “Edit News Feed Settings”

5. The first thing says “Show Posts From:”

6. You can choose either “Friends and Pages You Interact With Most” (if you have commented on, left a message for, wrote on someone’s wall they will show up in your feed, but everyone else will be excluded) or you can choose “All of Your Friends and Pages”.

7. You can also view and change whose (People and Pages and Apps) posts you have previously chose to ignore.

8. By clicking on the arrow you can also choose to only see Game posts, Photos, Statuses, etc.

2.  Check Facebook Privacy with Online Tools

This information comes from: Melvins Inquisitive Mind

Privacy Check – http://www.rabidgremlin.com/fbprivacy/ 

Privacy Check is a nifty app that evaluates your privacy settings and gives you a score out of 21. The details of the score reveal which objects of your Facebook account are publicly accessible.

Privacy Defender – http://apps.facebook.com/privacydefender/

PrivacyDefender is a Facebook application that evaluates your Facebook privacy settings. You need to drag its bookmarklet to your bookmarks toolbar. When you access your Facebook account, click this bookmarklet to evaluate your settings and view which information is viewable by whom.

ReclaimPrivacy – http://www.reclaimprivacy.org/

ReclaimPrivacy is another tool that works similar to PrivacyDefender. You get a bookmarklet which you need to click once you are on your Facebook’s privacy settings page. You privacy settings are evaluated and shown to you.

Zesty Facebook Privacy Checker – http://zesty.ca/facebook/

Zesty Facebook Privacy Checker is a useful tool which takes in your Facebook username. It then displays a comprehensive list of all your Facebook content that is set to public.

Save Face – http://www3.untangle.com/saveface

SaveFace is a simple bookmarklet that evaluates your privacy settings. Unlike the tools mentioned above, it can even restore your settings to friends only. Here is how you use SaveFace:

  1. Drag the SaveFace bookmarklet to your bookmarks toolbar.
  2. You need to enter your privacy settings, and click on the SaveFace bookmarklet. Your settings will then be reset to “friends only.” This means that only your Facebook friends will be able to view your Facebook contact information, search settings, friends, tags and connections, personal information and posts. SaveFace’s script will take a little time to run, so you will have to be patient.
  3. Once the process is through, you can use anyone of the above mentioned tools to verify that your data is set to “friends only.”

3.  One Time Passwords

Facebook is launching one-time passwords to make it safer to use public computers in places like hotels, cafes or airports. If you have any concerns about security of the computer you’re using while accessing Facebook, Facebook can text you a one-time password to use instead of your regular password.

Simply text “otp” to 32665 on your mobile phone, and you’ll immediately receive a password that can be used only once and expires in 20 minutes. In order to access this feature, you’ll need a mobile phone number in your account. We’re rolling this out gradually, and it should be available to everyone in the coming weeks.

4.  Remote Sign Out and Account Settings

The ability to sign out of Facebook remotely is now available to everyone just like what GMail had introduced a while ago. These session controls can be useful if you log into Facebook from a friend’s phone or computer and then forget to sign out. From your Account Settings, you can check if you’re still logged in on other devices and remotely log out.

Under the Account Security section of your Account Settings page you’ll see all of your active sessions, along with information about each session. In the unlikely event that someone accesses your account without your permission, you can also shut down the unauthorized login before resetting your password and taking other steps to secure your account and computer.

When people log in to Facebook, the system will regularly prompt them to keep their security information updated. If you ever lose access to your account, having this information helps Facebook verify who you are and get you back into your account quickly.

I highly recommend the last two steps to be able to keep your account safe at all times.

Looks like Facebook is reacting that we want more control over what we share on Facebook—to manage exactly who sees it and to understand exactly where it goes. But is it going to be enough, all over the internet people are talking about the demise of Facebook but Facebook seems to be appearing in more websites, blogs and journals as the login method or the like button. We need to see how things are going to work out in the next year for Facebook.
