So what does Facebook give priority to? Posted photos. And that’s where my idea comes in….
The idea is that you would either A) post the image as a wall photo or better yet B) post an entire ALBUM of this image under a normal title like “2012 Ski Trip!” or “A Crazy New Year’s Eve!”
A Facebook friend of mine has already done option B (complete with tagging people “in” the photos and adding captions about what a fun Christmas break she had) and it has generated a lot of discussion. Waking up to a newsfeed full of these couldn’t fail to catch people’s attention. Details here.

God bless you, Rat

“Tracking the private daily behavior of everyone in order to help catch a small number of child criminals is itself the noxious practice of police states… Even more troubling is what the government would need to do in order to access this trove of private information: ask for it.”
