I'd like to introduce Violet Blue, our newest Tech Broiler guest columnist.You might remember when I had Violet as a podcast subject when we discussed the various control mechanisms for restricting explicit content and ebooks on Apple's devices during the launch of the i Pad back in March of this year.Surely, these well-meaning would-be Faceporners saw something they liked, something that might have even turned them on more than a blue-and-white color scheme, Wall-style posts, and the ever-arousing threat of having your personal information sold to advertisers.
When you date somebody on Tinder, you're going out on a complete blind date because most of the time, you don't even talk to them beforehand. So by the time you show up, you've never heard each other's voices and you don't even know what the other person's all about.
How many times have you been stuck in the rat's maze of Facebook profile settings and thought, "This is such a turn-on. One website, Faceporn (Faceporn.com), decided that the constant stress of agonizing over personal privacy in social networks was going to be the next "Behind The Green Door" for our generations.
I can't believe that no one has made a porn version of Facebook, because surely this pleasure must be taken to the next level"? Billing itself as "the number one socializing porn and sex network," the site aimed to create an X-rated social network, taking the literal "face book" concept to one of "face porn" which actually sounds a lot less appealing. Unfortunately for them, and everyone else with a Facebook fetish, Facebook did not like this very much.
Some might argue that it's an easy enough mistake to make as Facebook itself is so attractive, alluring, seductive and easy to use -- it could even be considered addictive.
Those may also be the very same people who present similar arguments to their wives that the charges on their credit cards to Faceporn must have been made by someone else.
