Facebook App for Watching Thai TV for Free
« on: May 09, 2013, 03:15:30 PM »
Watch Thai TV on the Internet There are quite a few websites that give you this service, but as I know many people use Facebook I thought I would point out this new app.



It is called KirzTV and you can install onto your Facebook page by clicking on the link.

While installing it asks permission to access your data and also to post onto your page. If you don’t like this kind of thing, then just change the setting so that only you see the posts.

At present there are 21 Thai TV channels. Apparently more are coming later in the year. I think it is certainly worth keeping an eye on this one.

It also asked me whether it could contact my FB contacts on my behalf, but it accepted the option "skip". Seems to work fine, but as long as it doesn't have any channels I like, it's of no use for me. Let's hope they include some in languages more familiar to me than Thai! :-[

Maybe you should update your FLASHPLAYER, as yours looks a little different from mine.

You have set it to 10 MB, which should be sufficient. Maybe try "unlimited".

I got all working fine with my 6 M-bit connection. Can even do downloads at high speed in the background.

I have version 11,7,700,169 installed. Run the TV on Firefox 20.0.1. And Windows is Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit.

I have version 11,4,402,265 installed

If I guess right, the number 4 indicates for what version of Windows it is; 4 would be Windows95. So your FLASHPLAYER might not use any storage at all due to incompatibility, if you've got a newer Windows version, what I can imagine.

System requirements (for FLASHPLAYER 11)

Windows

    2.33GHz or faster x86-compatible processor, or Intel® Atom™ 1.6GHz or faster processor for netbooks
    Microsoft® Windows® XP (32 bit), Windows Server 2008 (32 bit), Windows Vista® (32 bit), Windows 7 (32 bit and 64 bit), or Windows 8 (Classic and Modern)
    Internet Explorer 7.0 or later, Mozilla Firefox 17, Google Chrome, Safari 5.0 or later, or Opera 11

The problem could be your version of Firefox. Windows XP (32 bit) is compatible.

Maybe you should get an older version of FLASHPLAYER:

I would forget about the add-ons and update to the newest Firefox. Depends upon your priorities. I threw most of my add-ons out anyway.

I wouldn't trust any social networking site with any personal information - sooner or later private will become public.

18 million on Facebook alone

18 million Thais use social media

More than one in three Thais over 10-years-old have social media accounts, with 18 million on Facebook alone, according to the tracking site ZocialRank.com.



A new infographic slide show from the site says 25 million Thais now use the internet, of whom 18 million have accounts at one or more of the social media sites.

Spurred by the spread of mobile phones with fast internet access, membership of the Instagram photo site grew 163 per cent in the past year, ZocialInc said.

Facebook, however, dominates. While growth in the past year slowed to 28 per cent, in sheer numbers it has no immediate rival, with 18 million users registered from Thailand.

Instagram, while growing fast, has 600,000 users registered from Thailand.

ZocialRank compiled statistics on the major social media - Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Foursquare, and Line.

Vin Diesel: 'Facebook Really Owes Me Billions Of Dollars'

Fast and Furious 6 star reckons that he's helped the company

             

Vin Diesel isn't just pretty (or not so pretty) face, as the Fast and Furious 6 actor believes that he's the reason why Facebook is so popular and has claimed that it owes him "billions of dollars".

The 45-year-old star has spoken to Entertainment Weekly, where he revealed how he was the biggest star on the social network once upon a time.

Having signed up for the site in 2009, Diesel has managed to accrue an impressive 41.5 million 'likes' on his official fan page.

"What Facebook didn't realise is something very big was about to happen, and that was—for the first time in history, and it's kind of a fluke they didn't see this coming—when I jumped on that page in April 2009, I started talking to people. In the realest ways," Diesel told the magazine.

"Imagine if you could've been a Facebook friend to Marlon Brando, or whoever your role models are. Imagine, if you were able to Facebook Elvis, and talk to him, and hear from him without the Hollywood of it all."

According to Diesel, the only person more popular than him on Facebook was the president of the US – Barack Obama, but he’s rapidly spiralled down the popularity ranks as stars like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber have overtaken him.

"So, when I started talking to the fans, I became the No. 1 page in the world," Diesel boasted. "Over Coca-Cola, over huge companies. And it was only because I said: 'Hi, guys, I love you.' "

The actor, who stars in the new movie alongside Paul Walker and Michelle Rodriguez, also revealed that Facebook approached him for consultation meetings so they could crack his secret to being so popular.

"Facebook used to ask me to come up to their office to explain what the f--k I was doing, and why I had so many fans," he said, revealing that his real secret was being hands-on with the social networking.

"I never let anyone do a post, I never let anyone post for me in the last four years. My audience knows me so well on the page that if my producing partner's in the room when I post, they'll know somebody was around me. That's kind of cool, that's how sophisticated they are. Facebook really owes me billions of dollars. But whatever."

Re: Facebook seeks more spy data
« Reply #17 on: June 15, 2013, 03:09:40 PM »
MENLO PARK, CALIFORNIA 
Facebook is pressing the US government for permission to reveal more about what spy agencies are doing with its huge trove of user data.

The top attorney for the social network, which has about one billion users worldwide, said negotiations with US security officials had resulted in the company securing permission to reveal preliminary information.

However, the revelations are still very limited, said general counsel Ted Ullyot.

He said Facebook was only allowed to talk about total numbers and must give no specifics. But he said the company was lobbying to reveal more.

In a rare alliance, Facebook, Google and Microsoft have been pressuring the Obama administration to loosen its legal gag on government surveillance orders after the Internet surveillance program code-named "PRISM" was revealed in leaks last week.

Google said it was waiting to be able to reveal more specific and meaningful information before releasing its surveillance figures.

"Our request to the government is clear: to be able to publish aggregate numbers of national security requests, including FISA disclosures, separately," a statement from Google said.

Ullyot said Facebook received between 9,000 and 10,000 government requests — from all government entities, from local to federal — in the last six months of 2012, on topics including missing children investigations, fugitive tracking and terrorist threats.

The requests involved the accounts of between 18,000 and 19,000 Facebook users.

Facebook said it has a compliance rate of 79% on government requests.

"We frequently reject such requests outright, or require the government to substantially scale down its requests, or simply give the government much less data than it has requested," Ullyot said. "And we respond only as required by law."

Facebook was not allowed to make public how many orders it received from a particular agency or on a particular subject.

But the numbers do include all national security-related requests, including those submitted via national security letters and under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, which companies had not previously been allowed to reveal.

Ullyot said the company wanted to reveal the information because of "confusion and inaccurate reporting" on the issue, and to show that only "a tiny fraction of one percent" of its 1.1 billion users have been affected.

Facebook repeated recent assurances that the company scrutinises every government request and works aggressively to protect users' data.

Re: Facebook bug revealed 6million users' phone numbers and emails

Facebook bug revealed 6million users' phone numbers and email addresses

Social network Facebook has inadvertently shared phone numbers and email addresses of 6million users, the site has admitted.

A bug, which has now been fixed, meant that the site collated information about users to create master records including phone numbers and email addresses that the owners had never intended to share.

Facebook said it was “upset and embarrassed” by the issue and had notified its regulators.

If Facebook users uploaded their address books to the site, email addresses and phone numbers were connected with profiles of their friends on Facebook’s servers. Other users who subsequently downloaded data about those friends, using Facebook’s Download Your Information tool, were then presented with the entire record.

Facebook claimed it connected the information so that it could make sure users were invited to connect to friends who were already on the site, rather than suggest to existing users that they invite people to join.

Although 6million users were affected around the world, it is thought that around 200,000 of those live in the UK. Facebook said its own ‘white hat’ security programme was responsible for the discovery of the bug and its fixing. It is emailing all those who have been affected, but is not breaking down numbers officially by country.

Writing on the Facebook blog, the site said “Even with a strong team, no company can ensure 100% prevention of bugs and in rare cases we don’t discover a problem until it has already affected a person’s account.” The company apologised that it “may have allowed some of a person’s contact information (email or phone number) to be accessed by people who either had some contact information about that person or some connection to them.”

A Facebook spokesman said “We appreciate the security researcher's effort to report this issue to our White Hat Programme. We worked with the researcher to evaluate the scope of the issue and fix this bug quickly and discussed the issue with our regulators. The bug occurred in limited situations, generally in which one user already had contact information for another, and we have no evidence that it was exploited maliciously. We have already notified affected users and have provided a bounty to the researcher to thank him for his contribution to Facebook security.”

The blog post added that “No other types of personal or financial information were included and only people on Facebook – not developers or advertisers – have access to the DYI tool. We currently have no evidence that this bug has been exploited maliciously and we have not received complaints from users or seen anomalous behavior on the tool or site to suggest wrongdoing. Although the practical impact of this bug is likely to be minimal since any email address or phone number that was shared was shared with people who already had some of that contact information anyway or who had some connection to one another, it's still something we're upset and embarrassed by, and we'll work doubly hard to make sure nothing like this happens again.”

The site told users “Your trust is the most important asset we have, and we are committed to improving our safety procedures and keeping your information safe and secure.” It added it had paid the researcher a "bug bounty".

Dirty business: Used panty shops mushroom on Facebook, draw online backlash



Sometimes, products being offered in the Thai online marketplace can trend toward the bizarre. While buying used, women’s underwear is a longstanding (if odd) sexual fetish, the rapid proliferation of online shops in Thailand offering this product marks a new twist for the world’s sexual economy.

Isra News Agency released a report this morning about the phenomenon of women selling their panties via Facebook, which has quickly become the most talked-about topic of the day.

These Facebook shops insist that the shop owners wore every piece of underwear themselves and deliberately left them unwashed so that their odor continues to linger. The price for a pair of used panties ranges from THB200 to THB400, excluding post fees.

The shop owners feel justified in their occupation, pointing out that they do not break laws, nor do they steal the clothing from other people. On the other hand, opponents of this business model think that the undertaking is aimed simply at promoting perverts and encouraging them to practice their aberrant behavior.

Dr Pornthep Siriwanarangsan, director-general of the Disease Control Department, told Isra that used clothing contained some fungi that might affect the health of buyers.

However, Pornthep noted that the buyers’ mental health was of greater concern than their physical health.

Facebook the most popular news source, study shows

Facebook has become the most popular source of news for Thais, according to a survey on the popularity of traditional news sources versus online sources conducted by Bangkok University.
The survey was conducted on 1,750 respondents in five provinces over a year.

"Most student source news on Facebook, with the highest proportion being those in the Central region - this was beyond our expectations," said Asst Prof Bubpha Makesrithongkum of the university's Faculty of Mass Communi-cation, who conducted the survey with colleague, Khajornjit Bunnag. "Facebook responds to their demands and they only read what they're interested in."

The respondents were broken down into those of student age, people of working-age and senior citizens. Most respondents were from middle-class background.

Her findings were presented yesterday at Bangkok University's Rangsit Campus in a conference on how mass media should adapt to the challenges of the Internet; an event was organised by the university in cooperation with the Thai Journalist Association (TJA).

Bubpha said the younger generation had a higher tendency to access news through online sources, while people of working age and senior citizens still relied on newspapers and public television. Though overall, public TV was still the most popular source of news in Thailand, she said.

Bubpha added most students found news presentations on Facebook more interesting, although one participant questioned whether the notion of what constitutes news for the younger generation would be the same as that read by older people.

For traditional news, the study revealed that radio was the least popular source.

Sudarat Disayawattana Chan-trawattanakul, dean of mass communication at Panyapiwat Institute of Management, said she was concerned that the introduction of digital TV next year would not necessarily lead to a greater variety of news, because public TV had so far failed to offer much diversity. She also warned that digital television would struggle to finance itself in the first five years, as advertisers would continue to stick with public TV.
