Butterboy and his Iranian pal are some greezy lookin kreeps. Gotta get me some zoot-suits like they got, good for clam diggin.

Kant wait to get em a wheelbarrow load of cash for my investment.

The second windmill is ready for the propeller installation and some fresh "investors" as they are the prototypes for the vast planned eco-friendly wind farms to be built south of Santo Tomas. Gotta feelin the Osprey, Raven and Zopilote population down there will take quite a dive.

I was shocked when several years ago in San Juanico I rounded a corner on my dirt bike and ran up to a large windmill farm. San Jaunico at that time had only very long and unpaved roads as access. The surfers love this spot and call it Scorpion Bay.

That got him kicked out of real estate once already. Sorry, leopards do NOT change their spots.

That is all, carry on.

to bad the facebook pages won't post this stuff..
Doesn't fit their agenda. Seems anything negative posted on Facebook about our favorite place south of the border gets either A) quickly censored and deleted, or B) you become the object of ridicule and all the defenders accuse you of being a hater and spreading fake news.

Exactly how do they collect this info? I assume only from entries made on either, searches, comments, like given, based on agreement with the TOS ?? Clearly most of the information is useful to target ads which I guess is the sole income to the site?? Not too troublesome as it should cut the inappropriate clutter. Maybe tat is why I never see ads for sanitary napkins??

Years back before the internet my mailbox overflowed with useless advertising. I asked the local postmaster to not put mass mailings in my box but they could not do that. I see a lot of unsolicited stuff as I brose but have trained m self to ignore it all. I am not a facebook fan and still do not get the cry 'Like Me on Facebook" . What benefit is that other than bragging rights? I see the little Like sig at the bottom of this page. What's the deal there??

I am fascinated by some of the Advertorial stuff offered. "I'll tell you about that in a Minute' and on and on till it gets to the sales pitch after 5 or 6 minutes. "One simple thing to know about how to prevent heart attacks " and five minutes of "I'll tell you about that in a minute". I guess it's a way to collect payments for clicks or exposures on advertiser's sites ??

Exactly how do they collect this info?
You got part of it -- by where you go, where you click, what you like, what groups you follow or belong to, your friends (and analyzing the same about them), and your actual posts on Facebook and instant messaging, and other sites you've used Facebook to log into... it's a long list, Roberto. This article appeared in Sunday's Arizona Republic. So why you may feel "who cares" about targeted advertising, this gets a lot deeper and personal.

Jefferson Graham - USA TODAY - LOS ANGELES – Want to know what Facebook has on you? Download the data. I did, and what it knows about me is pretty scary.
Like many, I have downloaded the data that Facebook compiled about me over the years, and frankly, it was spooky. I love the social network for showing off my latest photos, staying in contact with old friends and catching up on the latest news. But to get those features, Facebook kept:

❚ Location info of all my contacts. This happened when I joined and Facebook asked if I wanted to connect with other friends by importing my contacts from my computer, which happened to have their phone numbers and some addresses. Facebook has lived with this info since I joined in 2007.

❚ Any restaurant or airport where I’ve “checked in.”

❚ The IP address of everywhere I’ve ever logged into Facebook.

❚ My (estimated by Facebook) political and religious views, despite my posts that focus on three areas: photography, work (the latest articles, podcasts and videos) and, occasionally, family.

❚ All my searches on Facebook over the years, names of my followers and facial recognition of me and my friends.

Whoa!

After the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which an app developer was able to sell personal data to a research firm that said it helped Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election, Facebook apologized. It says it has tightened its policies on what data can end up with app developers since that data leak. The company also pledges to be more transparent about data it collects. Meanwhile, it will roll back some of the ad-targeting tools that have long been available to data brokers.

Want to know what Facebook has on you? Download the data. Go to the Settings section of Facebook (the arrow next to the question mark, top right) and click on “download my data” at the bottom of the page called “General Account Settings.” Then you’ll make your request and await Facebook’s compilation of your data, delivered via email link. If you’ve been on Facebook for many years, expect the link to take a while.

Once the file arrives, double-click to open the “index.htm” file in an Internet browser, and look it over.

Despite the years of data Facebook has collected, downloading it won’t require a separate hard drive for giant files. Most are text based, and thus, tiny files. As I did, you’ll jump over the obvious, such as the names of your Facebook friends, which are listed already on the social network, along with your posts, photos, etc.

Where it gets weird is in the phone numbers — why does Facebook have them?

Separately, Facebook has been collecting information on calls and text messages from Android devices, but the social network defended itself by saying it sought permission to do so. It was sold primarily as a feature for Facebook Messenger to help “you find and stay connected with the people you care about,” Facebook said.

Meanwhile, you don’t need to download the file to find out which advertisers have targeted you and have your personal information, including what your religious and political persuasions are. Again, in the Settings section in Facebook, head to the Ads section by clicking on “Ads” in the left menu. Here you can try and play havoc with Facebook’s algorithm by deleting some of the assumptions it has come up with. Political and religious were first to go for me, although the others seem pretty tame, such as male friends with birthdays within seven days.

After a few more clicks, I found out which advertisers had my info. The magazine Vanity Fair, which I love but don’t subscribe to, has the goods on me, along with Dollar Rent a Car and Uber, which I do use. Facebook said these companies had “your contact info” but didn’t spell out how extensive that was. (We asked Facebook and are awaiting an answer.) One section that definitely is worth clicking “no” to: the ad settings where Facebook asks if it can create ads for you based on websites and apps you visit. You could argue that targeted ads make for a better Internet experience. I’m followed around everywhere I surf with ads for cameras and guitars because Facebook knows I love them, but, hey, if I want to buy a camera, I know where to go.

Jeremiah Owyang, an analyst with Kaleido Insights, suggests turning off as many features as possible on Facebook. “The less information you give, the more privacy you’ll have,” he says. Let’s be real — you can click every button, and Facebook will still find a way to keep tracking you. But it can track less.

People should of known they were collecting data. It was a free service and had to be paid for somehow. Wake up, nothing is free.

Gotcha. But I don't think anyone realized how much data they were collecting on you.

And by the way, some things ARE free. This website is a perfect example. We charge members nothing, we collect no user data, we target no ads at you. The only thing we collect are some vague statistics regarding how many posts were made, how much traffic the site gets, etc., to manage the server load. We collect nothing on individual users, other than if you're here, you obviously have some kind of a love/hate relationship with Rocky Point. :)

Stuart,
There is no way you can compare your site to Facebook. Facebook has 1.2 billion users. If you scaled this site up to those numbers there is no way you could provide this service for free. It would cost millions of dollars to handle the traffic.
As for a "love hate relationship" with Rocky Point, I don't know where that came from but since I live here, I am a realist and like to know both good and bad information on where I live.
