Facebook is seriously challenged ethically

THE MORE I LOOK AT IT, FACEBOOK IS A FUNDAMENTALLY ETHICALLY COMPROMISED ORGANISATION.

Google pays you for the ads it posts on your blog or on your youtube channel. Your contents is monetised, allowing people to produce more content.

On Facebook, however, the more popular writers DON’T get any share of the ad revenue attributable to their content. And worse – Facebook allows youtube vidoes to be stolen and widely shared – WITHOUT providing the creators any revenue.

List of Facebook pages and groups that I operate

Given Facebook’s shameful behaviour, I now need to start making arrangements to ensure that my pages and groups don’t blank out the moment Facebook dictators decide whimsically to, once again, disable my account on any random pretext.

This is a starting point of this journey to recover and restore my intellectual property on Facebook. I do not trust this unethical organisation any more.

Facebook has blocked yet another advertisement – that asked questions from Modi

Once again, FB has rejected a post from Swarna Bharat Party, India’s only liberal party. [Previous one discussed here and here. FB did not respond after my repeated reminders seeking clarification.]

This post, too, asked questions from Modi.

It was rejected, without any explanation. The explanation doesn’t make sense.

It is now becoming clear that Facebook is committed to protecting killings of innocents.

I think someone in Facebook needs to ask what they are doing by blocking free speech in this manner.

Fastest load performance of this website. 100 out of 100 on Pingdom. Surely a record of sorts!

I’ve been trying to deal with various hacking issues on this blog, beefing up its security, and figuring out how to manage WordPress. A fair bit of basic MySQL work and UNIX based work is involved.

Pingdom (the speed tester of websites) has now reported that this website has scored 100/100; something I’ve never seen before. Faster than 99 per cent of the world’s websites!

I don’t think this wonderful performance is going to last, but one must take a break from the hard work and savour the reward.

Have upgraded the database server for this blog. Posts should now load much faster.

I've upgraded from shared hosting to managed SQL, on top of regular, shared hosting.

I had started this blog on google's blogspot in 2007 and migrated to this domain in June 2010. The blog now has 3500+ posts and over 1500 visitors per day (often touching on a regular basis, as – for instance – today, over 2000). But there are also around 20 subdomains that get a fair bit of traffic, for a total of around 3000 visitors each day.

Just using shared hosting, at around 4 to 5 dollars a month, is no longer an option. Things had become really bad and it was almost impossible to publish/ update posts. I was constantly getting 404 and 500 error messages. Also, its weaknesses were too easy to exploit, and this blog was constantly being hacked, including by political hackers. 

Moving to managed SQL guarantees memory for my 20+ SQL databases. This option is going to cost a bit (exact amount to be determined after one week's experimentation) but the speed has already dramatically increased. I've never seen the blog (at the dashboard level) as responsive it has become now, after upgrading the SQL server.

Greater capacity also means I can install more defences (plugins) against hackers.

With my blogs now earning $100+ (AUD) per month, I'm not going to be out of pocket. I guess everything has a cost. Cheap hosting has its limits.

Let me know if you experience any improvement in speed.
