Facebook, I don’t get you.

This is the video in question (NSFW, graphic, and well, everything you don’t want to see): Hamas Members Execute Fatah Members in Gaza.

This is stuff for Liveleak, not for a social media platform with tons of kids.

Oh, by the way, these are the Community Standards: […] share their experiences and raise awareness about issues important to them. Sometimes, those experiences and issues involve graphic content that is of public interest or concern, such as human rights abuses or acts of terrorism. In many instances, when people share this type of content, it is to condemn it. […]

Hokay…

I’m the first one that’s against censoring, but there’s a place for everything, no?

However, nudity (not talking about porn) isn’t tolerated: […] We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. […]

Adium & Facebook

If you’re like me, and been unable to log in to your Facebook chat through Adium for months… This is the fix:

Basically, when adding your Facebook account, Adium opens some webpage asking you to login. I always logged in using my e-mail address (as… that was what the page was actually asking!).

I always managed to successfully login. Facebook then asked to identify my device (“Adium” or whatever).

However, here the problems started. Whenever I clicked save, I just ended up on the same page again, asking me to fill in my device name.

Checking my devices in Account Settings, I saw a million Adiums got added (because of my spam clicking/trying)…

I even tried to disable the “login approvals”, thinking that had something to do with it… But alas.

 

Thinking it had something to do with cookies (session cookies not/wrongly saved or something by Adium) I updated to betas… Many times, and still no fix. This was becoming annoying and pretty odd. Was I the only one have this problem?

 

I then tried, instead of using my email address, to use my actual account name (“facebook.com/YOUR-ACCOUNT-NAME”). And guess what… 😉 Yea, I could log in, add the device correctly, and Facebook chat went online right away.
