I hate to lose control of the privacy of my personal information on social networking sites like LinkedIn and Facebook. And after the multiple ‘upgrades’ which Facebook introduced and turned us all into social advertising (without consent), I have near little trust in the company. I thought LinkedIn would be different because they market themselves as professional networking sites… so disappointing.
To make sure you aren’t used in any of their social advertising follow these instructions:
If you’re a LinkedIn user and want to opt out of all this, go to where your name is displayed on the top right of your LinkedIn screen and click on “Settings”. Click on “Account” at the bottom left of screen, then “Manage Social Advertising”.
Decide what you want, decide what you are willing to exchange
for it. Establish your priorities and go to work.
– H. L. Hunt
Such simple steps and yet I’m still struggling with deciding on what I want.
I need to get over this fear of making mistakes because it really just inhibits me from getting anything done.
What’s the worst that could happen?
It’s worth it!
Why doesn’t FlyBuys.com.au have an email contact?! Who still writes and posts snail mail to businesses nowadays??
I recently registered online with FlyBuys.com.au so that the points can be redeemed faster (online). The first few times I tried it kept saying “Try again later” and today I attempt to redeem the points only to find that I’m short 25points!??
This is where I discover that FlyBuys only can be contacted via a ’13′ number which can’t be used on weekends or public holidays (which means I can’t call until Tuesday) or snail mail. How lame.
FlyBuys is committed to trading fairly and providing FlyBuys members with the confidence that we will always be open and honest in our dealings.
FlyBuys.com.au – Fair Trading
Fair Trading… righttt, they will always be open and honest but at the same time if their website doesn’t allow customers to redeem points then it isn’t their problem?
Not impressed FlyBuys, not impressed at all.
Long weekend just went past and I feel even more tired than when the weekend started.
Ironically I started back up on my fitness classes that week because I thought I was neglecting my body.
Work has been interesting…
Ideally I would love to work from home, I just haven’t discovered a means for it yet…
The past 2 Saturday mornings were spent attending and helping out at the DHAA First Aid Course.
I’m so so sorry that I have neglected you. I’ve been so busy with boyfriend, travel, friends and work that I haven’t had time to update or even visit you. And whenever I did happen to drop by, I was completely lost for words. I wanted to give you some quality posts to make up for my absence but there was just so much to catch up on!!
2010 was just such a crazy year that zoomed by us all, but I hope we can catch up soon. Maybe after Chinese New Year? 恭喜发财!!
Reading about Prince William’s engagement somehow led me to an article about the decline in marriage and the ‘new families’. Pew Social Trends and TIME Magazine did a survey and this a brief summary of their findings.
- Higher education, wealth and marriage are linked
- Women are smarter, richer, more independent and are more 2/3 likely to initiate divorce
- Don’t be surprised if the wife is the breadwinner, older and taller than hubby
- Higher educated couples test run before marriage and children, less educated couples have children then marry
- Pray you’re not living in the US: “..a child living together with unmarried parents in Sweden has a lower chance that his family will disrupt than does a child living with married parents in the U.S.”
- Married and unmarried adults say (in order of priority) that love, making a lifelong commitment and companionship are very important reasons to get married. Having children moderately so and financial stability barely even made it past the 30% mark for married adults.
