Peek at my Facebook privacy settings over last few years

Some of what I share on Facebook may not be considered appropriately viewable by potential employers or co-workers.

** 2013 update I have now made this post available to all friends and am re-sharing it as a reminder of my privacy stance.

Moving forward I expect to notch the social networking up not down.   I’ve taken great care in deciding what information I share and who I will share it with.  In reality the Facebook friend count should be in the thousands but Facebook’s lack of advanced administrative tools make it difficult to ensure privacy is kept in order.  Currently it is also way too easy to accidently click the wrong thing and put someone is the wrong list.

—–“THEN – My current Facebook friend count was 311, of those 230 of you have the ability to read this note. Many of these 311 people I have not met but most I have either met or previously interacted with heavily. Recently I have decided to embrace Twitter more and allow Facebook to be a little more intimate. If Facebook or third party developers can make Facebook easier to interact with this may change.”

Currently 2015 – 248 friends

(2013 update friend count is 229 and I expect it to go down further today) will update this post.

2013 Arpril update I am down to 188 friends on Facebook now.

Make no mistake that the information you are seeing on Facebook is not shared with everyone and for whatever reason I decided to group people the way I have.  As time is available I will try to keep up with this as an ongoing task.

If you are really curious at this point all of my Tweets are going to Facebook and by default shared with the same list that sees this note.  Some of my Tweets will be upgraded to public on Facebook.

* 2013 update I’ve stopped doing this I don’t want anyone publicly so see anything but my profile pic, cover pic, and networks I am on. All my tweets no go to Facebook friend list and some I remove if they are only intended for Twitter.

Facebook is extremely powerful but it is far more complex than you can probably imagine. Hope to hear from you soon.

SUSPECTS SOUGHT IN FRENCH QUARTER NIGHTCLUB BEATING

To me these guys appears to be typical Jefferson Parish West Bank thugs. I bet they have arrests records in Jefferson!

NEW ORLEANS, LA. – The NOPD is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying an unknown man wanted in connection for beating a man unconscious inside of a nightclub in the 800 block of South Peters Street. The incident occurred on Sunday, December 21, 2014, around 3:45 a.m.

A 21-year-old man told detectives he was involved in an altercation with an unknown man prior to leaving the club. The victim said he could not remember anything else about the incident other than waking up in the hospital. During the altercation, the victim sustained a broken jaw.

During the course of the investigation, Detective Willie Jenkins was able to develop a suspect through video collected from the nightclub.

The subject in the video wearing a jacket is the alleged attacker. The other two subjects, one wearing a striped shirt, and the other wearing a button up shirt, were both in the company of the alleged perpetrator. They should be considered persons of interest.
