    Default You Have Three Days To... (Facebook)

    You Have Three Days To Pick Your Facebook Vanity URL, that is Friday 12:01 AM Eastern Time. Choose Wisely, Or You’re Screwed LOL (j/k), not that I got any FB acct, but I got twitter LOL.

    Meaning from this, the current address: facebook.com/profile.php?id=500065899 (no, that is not mine, I'm not caucasian LOL)

    you can have your FB address like this for example:

    - facebook.com/rosely
    - facebook.com/GuGu
    - facebook.com/TheBatman
    - facebook.com/Lunatic


    LOL

    So make sure you don't sleep early on friday night coz it's first come first serve for the Vanity URL name that you choose. If it's taken then it's taken.

    Now that SPCNET got Twitter acct (although only 14 updates till now LOL), I think it's also a good thing to have the official SPCNET facebook.

    Well, there is bad news as facebook try to prevent people hijacking copyrighted names on friday night, just after midnight (June 13th at 12:01am EDT). There is new rules for creating your own Vanity URLS.

    Read this: taken from the FB Faq:

    I tried to secure a name for my Page but Facebook said the Page was not eligible. What are the requirements?
    Your Facebook Page must meet two requirements: it must be live on Facebook prior to the May 31, 2009 cut-off date and have a minimum 1,000 fans as of May 31, 2009.

    LOL, sensei, no one want to know if you like it or not FB or twitter or other crap. If you don't want to use it, fine, otherwise I don't care either. No need to tell the whole world about it.

    According to Plagiarism.org, your first post displays some characteristics of plagiarism. Granted this is a forum, but if you're copying other site and word for word from that source, it is still considered plagiarism. No matter where you go, copying other sites and people's wording is not right.

    All of the following are considered plagiarism:

    • turning in someone else's work as your own
    • copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
    • failing to put a quotation in quotation marks
    • giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation
    • changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit
    • copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not (see our section on "fair use" rules)
    See especially #2, #3, #5, and #6.

    You may have said "More details here" but thats not exactly crediting Tech Crunch for the words you "borrowed" from their article.

    Let the boy go, SS...he's not submitting an academic paper or a work of art. He's just passing along information he gathered, without (as far as I can tell) claiming that he made it up himself. No harm, no foul as far as I can see.

    What's also happening at the same time is that TV analog signals in the U.S. are going dark forever on Friday. If you've got a TV more than four or five years old, it's time to look into alternatives.

    My point is on this forum use the freaking QUOTES for words and ideas that isn't yours. That's what the Quote feature is for.

    If you have cable (or satellite), then you're already set. It's people who were still receiving TV signals the old-fashioned way (i.e. over the airwaves via antennae) who need to make an adjustment.
