Facebook subscriptions… I don’t want ‘em

Facebook, in their ever increasing attempt to make everyone’s information right in your face, enter the “Subscription”. 

Drum roll please.

Is this a good thing?

If I were a product or a witty on air personality? Sure

Perhaps even if I were not so witty or even a personality… maybe… if I wanted my words to be broadcast in the new transmission medium called the web…

Ok, it isn’t so new… the web that is…

<queue “The Dark Side of the Moon”>  and the lunatics are on the grass…

So get rid of ‘em.

Turn ‘em off…

Step 1: Click on the little down triangle by HOME

Step 2: Click on Privacy Settings

Step  3: Click on Edit Settings in the How You Connect Section image

Step 4:  Click on the Subscribers Tab link in the How You Connect Dialog Box – by the way, the text here may be different from what you see.  First time through it was something like “to change settings in your subscriptions…” 


Step 5: Turn off the Subscribers


Happy turn off Facebook socialization day…

Originally, this was a pretty darn boring post. Kinda like... Well I won't go there. Perhaps its still on the robotic side but... I could say I like music. Safe, generic and non-comittal. Or, I could say that I've been having a blast tuning up my old guitars, getting blisters on my fingers and turning the amp up past 2. Amazaing what a little overdrive and a half pressed wahwah pedal can do for a sound. Get that cool "Money for Nothin" vibe happening. I get a real kick out of reading old Sci Fi. Reading Asimov's vision about the future is really entertaining now. When he wrote much of the material, the items that were futuristic were day to day tools I used in the early part of my career. Microfiche and the like. I also remember that upstart Microsoft and MS DOS...and can you say Lotus 123? So maybe this is a little better than "I like to read and play music". My career is focused on Team Leadership and Technology. Both share the attributes of continual growth and education. Currently, I manage a team of 4 programmers as direct reports. I've been in this role since 08/2007. Prior to that, I was the team lead (on site) for integration with the customer. Customers ranged from local government to manufacturing and medical. Teams ranged in size from one to six additional team members. On the other side is technology. I've been keeping current with .net technologies focusing on C# and Sharepoint (2007/2010). Specialties Team Building and Management Technical Staff Recruiting Microsoft Visual Studio 7 through 2010 (VB.NET and C#.NET) Microsoft SQL Server 6.5-2008R2 (DTS, TSQL, SSIS, SSAS, and SSRS ) SharePoint 2010 (Office Integration, InfoPath, Site Management and planning) Windows Server 2008 R2 AD DS PowerShell Techology analysis Puchasng and working with vendors Microsoft licensing management and compliance Business Systems Analysis Traning plans Mentoring Training coordination.
