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.

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.

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?

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.

by Anonymousreply 1812/13/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 1912/13/2011

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)

Hey, OP -- you need a browser dedicated only to porn. It is your "porn browser."

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.

by Anonymousreply 2312/13/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 2612/14/2011

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.

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.

I thought "Likes" were tracked via IP address, not brower cookies...

Anyone in IT here?

by Anonymousreply 4012/15/2011

Facebook definitely uses cookies. It has to because it's storing an id related to your Facebook account. The IP address wouldn't be enough for that - think about multiple people using the same IP address or using on a smartphone not using wifi.

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.

OP, if you're so careless and concerned about it, please use different browser. And device. And wireless system. Maybe from a different city.

R61, the Boy's Latin Class have asserted most forcefully ("fortiter") that 1814 would serve better, since their great-grandfathers' French pornography collections from the Great War are magnificently extant.

For future reference, you can configure plugins like AdBlock or Disconnect and others to hide those Facebook "like" buttons on external pages.

If it makes you feel any better, I was lurking on some Facebook photos of a straight former co-worker of mine and as I was trying to close the pic, accidentally tagged one of my friends in his photo - FML.

by Anonymousreply 7302/28/2015

Does anyone know for certain if your FB friends will still get a notification about something you posted, if you ultimately deleted it before the next time they logged back into FB?

In other words if I post then retract something at like 2am while everyone else is asleep, will they still get a notification about it hours later when they log back in?

by Anonymousreply 7402/28/2015

The thing i find most shocking about this is the amount of users who use different browsers to watch porn in.

by Anonymousreply 7502/28/2015

R74, usually FB friends won't get notifications about your posts unless you've specifically tagged them in some way (e.g. in a photo or in the text). In that case, if they're set up to receive e-mail notifications, then they'd still get that e-mail even if you deleted the post later.

But if it's just you posting something that doesn't mention them, they wouldn't be notified in the first place, and if you delete it later and they never had the chance to see it in their News Feed, then no they wouldn't see it.

If it did appear in their News Feed when they were logged in, though, your deleting the post wouldn't delete it from their feed until they do a refresh of some sort.

This thread brings up a bad memory, same thing happened to me, forgot to log out and a very graphic porn image I swear I didn't like ended up on my page. Since I only login at most once a day, it was there a full day before I saw it and all my relatives, friends from decades ago, coworkers, even a few of my former college professors probably saw it. A distant family member was the only one who commented, saying er, I think you were hacked. When I logged in and saw that image, my blood pressure shot through the roof, and I thought I was going to pass out. It took days before I could get a grip on my nerves. I deleted it and never said a word.

Wouldn't these incidents be harmless if we just admitted as a society that we watch porn? Then no one would feel ashamed because everyone else would think it's no big deal.

off topic, but not too long ago i got that whole F.B.I. warning blocking my computer (turns out it's a well known or becoming well known virus)....

embarassing that i had to take it to my computer store for them to get rid of it (i'm sure they had to know HOW i got the virus in the 1st place, i.e. surfing porn)....

i got it when i was googling images of zeb atlas and one of his twink costar's photos from a recent flick he did, just for everyone's f.y.i. i clicked on the photos that popped up to see them "full size" and BAM! got the full page F.B.I. warning on my screen that no matter what would NOT go away until i took it to the computer fixer up place.

Go into your privacy menu on Facebook (upper right screen with lock image). Go to see more settings. Click on Apps on the left menu. Disable "Apps, Websites, and Plugins". This is the function that brings up your Facebook login automatically on all the other sites for commenting on HuffPo or the icons to like videos. There's an extra step if you want to do that. You can stay logged in Facebook, in the same browser.

My monitor died one day.

I live in a 36 story building and there is a room off the lobby with three Macs for the residents.

I went to the one near the window and moved the screen away from the window to avoid glare.

As soon as I touched the mouse, a woman's voice SCREAMED from the computer, "You want my sweet, warm PUSSY?"

It was just then that I noticed an elderly Asian woman in the doorway, staring at me and my computer screen.

I tried to exit the screen, but when I did 20 more popped up, full of open vaginas and dicks squirting cum in women's faces.

I didn't say anything. There was nothing I could say that the woman would have believed.

R84, this kind of thing has definitely happened. A similar link popped up on my friend's Facebook news feed one day (this was back when "likes" showed up as individual items in your activity feed and got posted to your page, rather than being on the ticker on the side). He had over a thousand friends, so I thought someone would have alerted him to it... but after a while it was still there, so I took the initiative and messaged him individually.

He thanked me and claimed "not to have known how it got there." Yeah, sure.
