I accidentally hit the "like" button late last night on an on-line porn video and somehow it showed up on my FB page
until 8:30 this morning.
I caught it as soon as I woke up, and instantly erased it, but I'm horrified it was up there. Should I make a joke about it, or just never refer to it again, or say security had been compromised, or what?
I am incredibly mortified.
Never mention it because if anyone saw it that late last night and now sees that it is gone, they probably will think they dreamed it.
Never mention it.
**Always use a different browser to watch porn.** I like Opera. On that different browser, do not log into anything, especially social networking sites.
This is one of many reasons I dont do Facebook.
Just dont saying anything OP, if anyone hasnt said something to you by now nobody saw it.
[quote]**Always use a different browser to watch porn.**
I do the same thing. I also usually access Facebook through a different browser, so they're not tracking my other browsing.
What was the video?!!
Um, I saw it. Don't call us. We'll call you.
The guy you interviewed with yesteday who was about to hire you
One of my friends caught it and left a comment at it along the lines of, "Er, are you sure you wanted to post this?" Fortunately she's a nice lesbian and I'm sure didn;'t care she saw it.
I did this once, but instead of a "like," it looked like a message from me saying something like "Hey guys, check out this cool site with free gay porn!" What I don't understand is why a porn site even has those Facebook buttons. And that people use them intentionally.
Nothing you can do about it now except move on and try to be more careful in the future. Certainly don't call more attention by referencing the incident.
I'm worried that I might one time make the same mistake, maybe I should also use a different browser.
Was it video of a midget ffing an obese guy? If so then I would just close my Facebook account.
OP, always use a separate browser for porn, as has been suggested. And don't do any social networking on your porn browser (or Youtube either) and you won't have to worry about this again.
Several times I have accidentally clicked the FB 'like' button by accident because every damn site has one now and sometimes your finger clicks the mouse unintentionally.
I wonder: should the OP use a separate browser for watching porn? Has that yet been suggested?
Op, just reply back to her "huh" what you talking bout. If it's not there anymore then it has to be some glitch in fb. Not there, you no nothing about it.
or you can sign out of Facebook every time you leave the page
There has been a rash of porn showing up on FB lately due to hackers. I would have assumed that was what had happened if you were my friend on there OP.
Why, why, why does any porn site have a Facebook "like" button on it? Seems they're setting people up for just the situation OP describes. Very few people would ever want to share their porn on Facebook. It's supposed to be dirty and secret, that's what makes it good.
I would just blame it on a hack if anyone asked.
I do as R4 does. I only open Facebook in one browser (Safari) and surf everything else in Chrome. I cleared my cookies and stuff on Chrome and it doesn't automatically sign me in.
I'm thinking my New Year's resolution is going to be to pull the plug on social media.
Facebook is making us miserable (see the link)
Thanks for bringing that up, r15.
Hey, OP -- you need a browser dedicated only to porn. It is your "porn browser."
Just thought you should know.
Why do people leave themselves logged on to facebook all the time? I log in when I want to check it, then log out when I leave. Every time.
I'm with R23. I can't fathom why anyone would stay signed in. Just sign out when you're done and this sort of thing will never happen.
Log out of every site you've signed in to, every time you're done with it... facebook, twitter, netflix, gmail, aim, whatever it is.
Blaming social media is pretty silly, as is calling it quits altogether when you just need to follow that one basic rule.
Omg, OP! That has to be horrifying to do that.
Don't say you were hacked, it's transparent. Just don't say anything about it. Put up an add and some cryptic gobbledigook and it'll look like you're hacked. Erase it and make a vague reference "back to business" type comment and keep it moving, people will just assume.
Just ignore it, and if anyone mentions it, say you don't know how it got there.
I've seen porn and soft-core porn posted by people I absolutely know did not post it themselves, like a 60-something married woman respected novel writer and college professor.
And the married 50-something mother of three 20-something children.
And me, when I hadn't even watched the video I saw on my friend's wall, because I knew it was either a virus or a hacker's work.
One thing I do that prevents me from accidentally hitting like is that I have my apps all turned off on FB, and every time I hit like on some other site, it asks me if I want to turn on permission for apps, and I say NO.
r20 NO ONE will believe that. Every will know what op is up to. Accept it. Are you closeted OP? If so, you are not anymore.
[quote]**Always use a different browser to watch porn.**
And visit DL.
Just a thought, OP, but you could always use a different browser to watch porn.
OMG, this thread is making me laugh my ass off! I had forgotten how damn funny some Datalounge readers are. I was a fan years ago (during the MilkyLoads Sullygate scandal) but left after access became subscription only. Now I guess it's open again and I LOVE it! I hope David Ehrenstein still posts here - love him.
Sey no more.
Reason #114 not to have a FB page. I have heard many stories like this one. As such, I have no pity for anyone stupid enough to open themselves up to this type of propblem.
There is nothing positive that can come of having a FB page and that includes reconnecting with people that you haven't spoken to (and don't care about) in over 20 years.
A similar thing is that auto-complete (?) feature in the address bar. A very staid straight acquaintance (whom I'm trying to get a job from) was in my apartment and asked to use my computer. He is a very slow typer and every time he put a letter into the address bar, it would automatically list a whole bunch of super lewd porn URL's beginning with that letter (that I guess I had previously visited). It was incredibly disturbing.
say you were hacked or spammed or you're curious.
R35, use private browsing or erase your history after watching porn.
R34 like anyone would be your friend, R34.
R38 is someone who defines his entire identity by how many FB "friends" that he has.
I thought "Likes" were tracked via IP address, not brower cookies...
Anyone in IT here?

Omg, how horrifying.
What I did was to pay a friend of mine, a really good friend, to say that he hacked me and posted that in order to have a revenge because "I did something like that to him to but he noticed and errased" and he did the same thing but i didnt noticed, or something elaborated like that, It worked for me
I haven't got time to read the comments here, but it should be mentioned that OP must use a separate browser for pron activities in the future.
I'm with R15 on this one!
Get the fuck off Facebook!
It's a CIA controlled fishing project. You are giving up your privacy for nothing.
Besides, it's too frauish for words.
Darlin' you're a whore. And now everyone knows it.
While you are getting off of facebook, you might use a different browser for the porn you are streaming. Just a suggestion that needs to be mentioned.
I agree with R45!
r49 Nails it!
Listen to r26. That's the only thing I'd believe if I saw this on someone's page. People still might not buy it but they wont be *sure* anymore.
Whenever I google 'Chloroform' and how to hide a body or view porn, I use a hidden browser like firefox, OP.
You should do that.
Deny! Deny! Deny!
Another thing is the preview page when you open a new tab on IE and Google Chrome, displaying the recently viewed web pages. I brought my home laptop to work before and my boss was watching over my shoulders showing me what to do. I opened a new tab and one of the previews shown was for a gay porn website. We both felt really uncomfortable after that.
I almost accidentally "liked" the rentboy.com website. After that incident, I made sure not to log-on on facebook on my PC or on mobile browsers. Instead, access facebook solely on the dedicated app on my phone.
yeah, well I accidentally hit a "certain closeted republican congressman" late last night on the way home and somehow it showed up on my FBI page
What are the odds that OP is gay and just *happened* to be spammed with gay porn by a "hacker" (assuming OP is gay).
I know the original OP is from 2011, but if the OP reads this -- definitely use a different browser to watch porn.
Why do porn sights ever have a "google +1" button.
I don't want people knowing I use google+.
