    The OCDO Forum is Now Facebook Connected

    You can now connect your Facebook account to your OCDO account and have your posts show up on your Facebook profile. You will also see Facebook "Like" buttons on threads.

    Let me know if you encounter and problems with the integration.

    Thanks!


    John

    Nice touch.

    I won't be using it, since I prefer to keep internet activities separate, but it's a good idea!

    Is there a way to have Publish to Facebook autochecked?

    I finally got rid of my facebook. However, even when I had it, I kept it very separate from other internet activities.

    Yeah, I don't like this trend, which seems to be popping up on forums and blogs. I don't care if anyone else does it, but I sure won't. Facebook is already impossible to keep up with, with just a couple hundred friends. As an active participant on multiple forums, I can't see adding all that traffic. Nor would I add to my FB friends' traffic by slamming them with all my forum comments.

    I'm not concerned with anonymity; I've been using my real name on the internet since 1995. There are just certain venues and protocols that don't need to be blended.

    I don't like the mixing of seriousness OCDO with the pop-culture banality of Facebook either. But, I am trying to ignore it, hoping that Facebook won't drag us down. Heaven knows, nothing can elevate Facebook.

    I would love to see a "like" or "approve" feature, seperate from linking to your facebook account. This way, you wouldn't have to quote someone with a +1, especially if you're a day or two late into the discussion.

    I also try and keep internet activities seperate, and don't see the need for Facebook to be a part of absolutly everything.

    This forum software has "Reputation", if Mike and John care to turn it on. It's similar to "Karma" or "Like/Dislike" on other systems.

    Facebook = the most intrusive site I ever joined. I unsubscribed and had my account deleted. There is a way to have your account deleted. It is not advertised by Facebook. I found it through Leo Notemboom's site.

    Edit: I began hearing from people I had never heard of. "Will you be my friend." What could have been good, turned into a headache.

    Plus: Facebook is intrusive on your privacy.

    I need some advice. How to open carry legally...

    I'm scheduled for my CCW training in 6 weeks, but want to know more about open carry option for use now, and after I get my permit. What I don't understand, is if I have my handgun carried openly ( in a paddle holster with the entire firearm visible on my hip), do I run the risk of breaking the law should i find myself partially conceling my weapon when I sit? How about if part of my shirt were to come untucked and cover part of the grip?

    I love the idea of OC and am obsessively responsible. So I want to be sure on this and haven't found any legal direction such as "open carry is considered X, and is permitted only when the firearm is X % visible at all times" etc.

    This may be a stupid question so sorry if it's not what you normally discuss on this forum. I just don't know what I don't know and would appreciate any advice. Thanks, John/...

    Other than you are asking in the announcement section of the board on an announcement about Facebook and this question has nothing to do with Facebook?

    I would suggest you go to the Ohio forum and ask there.

    facebook is pretty cool if you take the time to learn how to use it.
    if someone wants to "friend" me that IDK I don't have to, just like if I meet someone in a coffee shop-if I want to be their friend I might or might not-no biggie

    Facebook links

    Can someone tell me how to fix that annoying link? The "Like" link causes the entire page to jump up and down one in every time it changes.

    Like everything else in life FB is what you make of it. I use it as a tool, for my own reasons and in my own way. It is not intrusive, not time consuming and my life does not revolve around it.

    As a business undergrad, I share your opinion. As an IT guy, I (as do most IT folks) have serious concerns about their security and respect for people's privacy.

    They're in it for the money, folks, and when people batten down the security hatches so their personal information cannot be seen by anyone other than their friends, FB doesn't make any money selling that information to third party companies. There's a reason FB changed it's security options in January and again just yesterday -- it shakes up the profiles, exposing loads of previously-hidden personal information. Unless one stays on top of it, of course. Even then...

    Given the nature of this website, most of our members are strongly opposed to even the possibility of a security leak.
