Deception of practices that portrays false actions and evaluates something beyond its true value!
The Safety & Security involved in Social Networking Platforms
There has been an ongoing outcry concerning the 'absconding' of, and subsequent dissemination of, our (PIAD) 'Personal Information and Data' for quite some time now. What can be done about it? What can we personally do to stop this or at least do our part in protecting ourselves from it? Actually there is more than you know that you can do!
Have you ever logged into one website by logging into it through another website? Such as logging into a website VIA using 'another website' login, and other logins? The majority of users have no idea why this method is used, and how it effects/affects your personal information and data! This login method IS NOT primarily used because of forgotten login details; you are just told that!
There was a story written a few years ago, that was spot on; although the situation is 'much' worse today! Please see the following link to the original story.
The other day, for a test, 'notably' - I was NOT logged into my 'Facebook' account. I did a login to an account I have at another website, by using my 'Facebook' login at that website, it did get logged in and subsequently was routed back to the website that I wanted to use for the test. I did a logout of that website, then immediately went to my 'Facebook' account, I became logged into my Facebbok account, although I did not go to and login to my 'Facebook' account. I also completely shutdown my browser for a few minutes, then went back to my browser and checked to see if I was still logged into my account 'Facebook' account, and 'I was'. I left it for quite a while then went back again, it never logged me out. I had to logout myself. Point: Part of 'DVP', you will see the meaning of this as the article progresses.
The same as 'Insider Trading' is illegal; there are other forms of escalating the value of a stock based on 'insider hidden untruths' that are being 'portrayed as truth and fact', when in fact is a total deception, in order to unscrupulously escalate the so-called worth of something: be it a stock on the market, or a company, etc., etc..
There is an organization that claims that they have 2.85 billion users, let's talk about that. What is a 'user' of a website, as opposed to a person having signed up for several profiles under their name or another assumed name; therefore, this IS NOT several signed up users, it is one user who has many profiles under that one person! A user is someone who signed up at a website and on occasion logs in for whatever purpose they do at that website. Now, some websites promote the ability to sign up for several 'profiles', that they call 'user accounts', although this is NOT another 'user' account, (they call it another 'user' account) - because you are only one person; you can't have several 'user' accounts, but you 'can' have several profiles - under 'and used by' the same user... What is a profile; a profile 'is' your information about you, at that website, everything that you include in your settings when you fill out information about yourself at the time of the signup and further over time is your (PIAD) 'your profile'.
Therefore, if I signed up for a user account at a website, and then subsequently signed up two more profiles using my name, an assumed name, a company name, or whatever; that website is counting all three signups as three 'users', instead of 'the real story' 'one user-person' and that users' profile and the other profiles under the same user - in essence (one user, and three profiles, but again this is, 'DVP', it is being counted as (3) three 'User' accounts. Therefore, an organization that claims (2.85 billion) users, might in fact in reality have only (900 million) or 'whatever' actual real legitimate fore-front users. The truth of this figure is being hidden for deceptive purposes! This is only the beginning of 'DVP', it goes much deeper!
Getting back to what I mentioned earlier about logging in to one website VIA logging in by another website. Some websites claim that they have XYZ figure of 'continual' active online users#. When you log into a website VIA another website, you are counted as being logged in at both websites, unbeknownst to you. When you logout of the website that you went to to use, again unbeknownst to you, you are still logged into the website that you used for the login, and you are being counted as an active user# 'perpetually' until 'if you even do' log yourself out of that website. You are being used to help escalate the value of that website as per 'so called' being used as an 'professed' online user, even though you are not there using the website; you were never logged out of that website at all, again, totally unbeknownst to you!
Further, given the above facts; however many claimed online users there are at any given time, it quite possibly could be literally 25% or only 50% or whatever, of what is professed by a website. Think about it, how many times have you logged into one website VIA another website, and then subsequently 'did not know' that you were also logged into that website that you used to login with, and then also were 'never' logged out of that website! It happens literally multi-millions of times every day with many websites! And all of this happening 'unbeknownst to the person' logged in sessions are 'falsely' everyday, being used as a count of professed perpetual online users# - we have 2.85 billion users Facebook says! Is this the truth or total 'DVP'. Facebook has admitted to using 'fake'# users at times, to build the count, and to promote a group or page. If this is the case, how many fake users are there at present in every facet of Facebook being used now to falsely evaluate the implied value of Facebook: because part of Facebooks so-called value is based on their total number of users and the count of perpetual online users. (#) If either of these figures are falsified in any way, it is the equivelant (in a different form) of 'Deceptive Trade Practices' (misleading & false information) which falsely evaluates its worth - deceptively to investors!
# Deceptively - withholding, omitting, giving, portraying, misleading, incorrect, false, information; veils proper needed truths and information. If these practices negatively influence a persons decisions in making investments, which could cause a bad investment; this would be considered deceptive or unfair trade practices, opening up the possibility of investigations and lawsuits!
Companies, did you know that when you think that you are doing your website patrons a favor by allowing them to login to your website VIA another website, that you are actually doing your website visitors 'customers' a big disservice! It does (2) two things; 1. it helps your users have their (PIAD) 'scrubbed' stolen even further because of being logged in elsewhere as well as your website. And 2. you are aiding in the 'DVP' of said other websites, and 'improper value escalation' because of your allowing the login ability to your website VIA another website, and subsequently the behind the scenes usage of information for their 'DVP' purposes! Users and Companies need to hold themselves accountable in what they do and their own practices of mentioned things here-in concerning login situations. Really, the professed only reason for supposedly logging in to one website VIA another website is so that a user doesn't need to remember many login and passwords. That's the professed reason. The real reason is to perpetuate the growth of a gigantic monster 'data scrubber' of peoples' (PIAD); and use 'you' & your 'lifes'' (PIAD) as a worker for the monster to procure income for their bank accounts! You are working for them completely unbeknownst to you!
Just think about if; 1. everyone logged out of that website and never used it again anywhere to login again to another website! 2. everyone only had (1) one signup profile at a website, and no other 'profile' signups under that original signup name! Possibly the value of a website would need to be totally re-evaluated! Everyone 'companies and users' need to do their own due diligence when it comes to saving their (PIAD) and life from being stolen from them! It's up to each person!
There is so much behind the scenes 'veiled' deception of operations being used to escalate the value of 'whatever', let the reader read between the lines as they wish.
Thought: 1. Deceptive portrayal of actual real 'Users' as opposed to the actual number of 'Profiles by a user'. 2. Deceptive accounting of literal real online users, as opposed to logged in users who are being counted as online users, but who actually have not even been there using the website because it was unbeknownst to them that they were logged in at the login website.
This 'DVP' goes much deeper, this is just the tip of the iceberg of this article.
At one time in history there were Ford cars, then Chevy cars, then Chrysler, Packard, Buick, BMW, Toyota, Nissan, and the list goes on. Who's to say that there needs to only be (1) one social media website, especially if a websites whole main goal is to steal your personal information and data 'your life' over and above the so-called service that they profess to offer!
There is another similar website: (INSTA) - https://insta.tel AKA: (InstaTel) - For your safety, INSTA has only one login availability, directly from the login page itself. No any other website login abilities. This way your (PIAD) is not being 'absconded' and disseminated. Your personal profile information stays within Insta for your lifes safety, to the best of our abilities!!! Insta has several APP's that can be used in conjunction with InstaTel. A messenger App - (InstaSay), a 'Cell Phone' InstaTel Timeline App - (InstaTime) & an (In Develoment) 'desktop messenger' - desktop & laptop installable program (InstaSay DM) to message and communicate directly to the INSTA website users or INSTA phone App's users.
Keep in mind, just because we have become accustomed to something, use to it, doesn't mean that it is an ok thing! Sometimes that thing, is burdening and hurting our lives in many more ways that we don't even know about! But when we do discover what can be done, we need to act on it immediately to protect ourselves, lest we forget and stay caught in that deep pit of problems!
Conclusion: Always login to a website by using 'that websites' login ability! Always logout of a website that you logged into!!! Always go to the website that you used to login from 'if you needed to do that' and verify that you are really logged out. Some websites make it confusing at logout and a user could be unsure if they are being logged out. So in order to help yourself as best as possible to have your (PIAD) not 'absconded' as much, or at all; always verify logouts from everywhere! Keep this in mind though, that even if you do logout each time ~ when returning and using certain websites, your (PIAD) is still being absconded, disseminated, and used for their purposes!
Be safe in your online website usage!
