How to use Facebook's 'Off-Facebook Activity' Tool
- CEO Mark Zuckerberg has called it a “Clear History” button in the past, and that’s a fair description: it lets you manage the information Facebook collects on your from other sites and apps.
- The first is “Manage Your Off-Facebook Activity,” which lets you micromanage the info from individual apps and sites.
- You can also download your off-FB information, or select “Manage Future Activity,” which lets you toggle whether Facebook retains more info on your going forward.
- The most in-depth option is “Manage Your Off-Facebook Activity.” From this page you’ll be able to see who’s shared stuff about you with Facebook.
- If you want to micromanage information from all the sites and apps that have shared your details, you can do so from this tool.
- If you, like most people, have neither the time nor energy, then we recommend one of the nuclear “Clear History” or “Manage Future Activity” options above.
Facebook knows what you're doing on other sites and in real life. This tool lets you see what it knows about you.
- The tool gives users an itemized list of the websites, apps, and real-life stores Facebook knows that they visited, and lets them turn off that tracking.
- The feature fulfills a longstanding promise from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who vowed in 2018 to build a "clear history" tool for Facebook users.
- After Zuckerberg promised the "clear history" tool, Facebook slightly changed course and renamed the tool "Off-Facebook Activity," stating that it wouldn't be possible for users to delete all their data from Facebook.
- Facebook learns that information from its advertising partnerships with third-party apps and websites, which voluntarily tell Facebook the identities of people who visit them.
- Here's how to use the new "Off-Facebook Activity" tracker, and how to turn off some — or all — of that tracking.
- Here is a direct link to the Off-Facebook Activity settings page.
All users can now access Facebook's tool for controlling which apps and sites can share data for ad-targeting
- Facebook is making its “Off-Facebook Activity” tool, which allows users to manage and delete the data that third-party websites and apps share with Facebook, available to all users worldwide.
- With the new Off-Facebook Activity tool, you can see a summary of that information and clear it from your account.
- But, in addition to Facebook’s powerful and granular ad-targeting capabilities, it’s also benefitting from other businesses that are sharing the data they’ve collected through their own apps with Facebook.
- Since then, the company has been working on improved privacy controls and tools to offer more clarity and user control over its data collection and sharing practices.
- In addition to the global availability of the Off-Facebook Activity tool, Facebook says it will also roll out a prompt over the next 2 weeks that will encourage users to review their privacy settings.
The UK's 'colonial' view of the world means it will lose to the EU in Brexit trade talks says Leo Varadkar
- Speaking to the the BBC's Laura Kuenssberg, Varadkar said a "lot of people" both in Westminster and Britain doestn't "understand Ireland" and "underestimated the fact that European partners will stay by" Ireland in Brexit talks.
- Both sides have less than a year to negotiate new trading arrangements, with Prime Minister Johnson saying he will not in any circumstances extend the Brexit transition period beyond December 2020.
- The EU says it will only give the UK tariff and quote-free access to European markets if Johnson's government agrees in writing to follow a common set of standards covering the environment, production, labour, and other areas.
- However, Johnson has said the UK will not commit to a level playing field with the EU after Brexit.
The Trapper Keeper (2017)
- For about a year, Crutchfield conducted interviews and focus groups, tweaking the design of the Trapper Keeper along the way.
- And once he was happy with the result—a PVC binder with plastic, pinchless rings (they slid open to the side instead of snapping open), a clip that held a pad and a pencil, and flap held firmly closed by a snap—it was time to run a test market, which would help them determine if the product was truly viable.
- Velcro was a lot easier to apply.” Though the Trapper folders remained virtually unchanged through the years, the Trapper Keeper evolved as student needs evolved.
- But it's not all work and no play: After a product relaunch in 2014, the company added new Trapper Keeper designs, including Star Wars and Hello Kitty, in 2015.
This courageous historian fought to make Black History Month possible
- In doing so, he created a legacy of his own: Woodson is the reason the United States celebrates Black History Month each February.
- As resistance mounted to Jim Crow laws and segregation, black history became a critical part of the curricula used at Freedom Schools, free alternative schools designed to counter the shoddy education available through the South’s separate-but-unequal school systems and teach black Southerners about their civil rights.
- The next year, the ASALH expanded the week to the entire month of February in recognition of the nation’s bicentennial, which Ford acknowledged in a speech that paid tribute to African Americans’ struggles.
- Other presidents issued messages acknowledging the month each year until February 1986, when Congress passed a law designating that month as National Black (Afro-American) History Month.
Some reflections about React and TypeScript
- Since I am using TypeScript, I have some superpowers.
- I can improve my code adding things like interfaces and return types.
- This won't change the behavior of the application but will make it easier to debug and more bug free.
- The Routes module is used in different places within the application so it makes sense exporting an interface that defines the structure of each route.
- When writing TypeScript is a good practice specifying functions' return types.
- Adding return types helps avoiding common misktakes and makes the application more testable.
- React Router DOM offers also the type of the props that a wrapped component receives.
- For example, I have withRouter(NavigationBar) receiveing some props form the HOC withRouter.
- The type of those props is RouteComponentProps.
- I also destructured the props to have direct access to its properties history, location and match.
