Facebook mandates that each user uses their legal name, and if a user is suspected of not using such they will be required to change it to their legal name or furnish proof of such. So that's another point against Facebook. This poses a problem for people who are transgender, or otherwise do not wish to use their legal name, often for privacy or security purposes such as avoiding being discovered by family or one's workplace.

Move?[edit]

Should this page be moved to User:Tepples/Old RAnT, Pin Eight:Old RAnT, or Mini-rant archive to reflect that I am no longer the primary maintainer? Eighty5cacao 18:29, 13 October 2010 (MST)

"Mini-rant archive": Good idea. --Tepples 05:09, 14 October 2010 (MST)

nice well done[edit]

hello!This was a really brilliant topic! I come from milan, I was fortunate to approach your website in bing Also I obtain much in your topic really thank your very much i will come daily --123.125.156.206

What did you think was brilliant about it? --Tepples 16:05, 16 October 2010 (MST)

Skype without video[edit]

Why does this edit downplay the importance of Skype's audio-only and text chat modes? There are probably quite a few portable headsets that could be useful for audio (with, e.g., the official Skype app), though I don't have a specific example handy. The point is that removing the requirement for video potentially removes the requirement to be tied to a computer.

(Possible conflict of interest — that edit summary doesn't mention audio, though I have used it.) --Eighty5cacao (talk) 19:11, 16 February 2013 (CST)

Why? Because relatives have demonstrated Skype to her in a way that conflates the term "Skype" with video chat. As for text, she doesn't want to sit in front of a computer for any longer than is absolutely necessary, and I don't want to use secret protocols to a greater extent than absolutely necessary. (IRC exists, and XMPP exists; therefore, Skype text is unnecessary.) As for voice, she'd probably claim that she already has a land line for that and the price per minute of long distance is worth it for the sake of familiarity, and I don't want to use secret protocols when there's an open protocol named after a cartoon reindeer. (Oh, and sorry about the reverts. The edit count added to the rollback link in recent MediaWiki makes some of the rollback links flow right under the diff links.) --Tepples (talk) 21:01, 16 February 2013 (CST)
Maybe I should have clarified that the official Skype apps handle text too, but that's moot given the real problem is my insufficiently strong free-software/open-source mindset ... anyway, it was my family's lack of knowledge of open protocols that led us to choose Skype. (This is the "conflict of interest" I referred to above — admittedly an abuse of the term.) --Eighty5cacao (talk) 22:16, 16 February 2013 (CST) (+ 22:49, 27 August 2013 (UTC))
So to reword more clearly: My parents probably heard about Skype from a relative who was (also) unaware of open protocols. That suggests that network effects are in play here: as long as Skype is more popular than open protocols, people will have less reason to use the latter, thus perpetuating the vicious cycle. --Eighty5cacao (talk) 02:18, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Facebook[edit]

Events[edit]

Unfortunately, for those who are very outgoing, Facebook is used as the near-sole method of coordinating social events. This makes certain local meet-in-person-based communities very difficult to participate in if one refuses to use Facebook; as an example, the NorCal Cosplay Gathering group used to post their events on a forum with open registration, before switching exclusively to Facebook.

Names[edit]

Facebook mandates that each user uses their legal name, and if a user is suspected of not using such they will be required to change it to their legal name or furnish proof of such. So that's another point against Facebook. This poses a problem for people who are transgender, or otherwise do not wish to use their legal name, often for privacy or security purposes such as avoiding being discovered by family or one's workplace.
