"Facebook’s “real name” policy is now creating users who are afraid of being outed, victimized, fired, or otherwise negatively impacted—a far cry from the “safe community” Facebook espouses to be."

Grandmas getting auto-tagged ‘Grandmaster Flash’

A tumblr is documenting a widespread problem where grandparents using Facebook often get the tag recommendation ‘Grandmaster Flash’ when they type ‘Grandma’ into a FB status. The confused elderly people often don’t know what they are doing wrong, and in most cases don’t know who Grandmaster Flash is. One grandma then messages the hip-hop icon with the FB post ‘I didn’t mean to hit the grandmaster flash whatever that is’.

"

It starts with ordinary people. Ordinary people do extraordinary things, and then we lionise them. We make heroes out of them. And that’s a problem, because it makes other ordinary people look at these heroes and think that they can’t achieve the same things. But that path is open to everybody. Anybody at any time.”

(Mahmoud sez: This is the problem with Reddit/Facebook/Tumblr/general information overindulgence)
