Facebook has made it increasingly hard for #OSINT researchers to use their platform for reconnaissance.

Of course, this is good for the #privacy and #security of its users.

PLESSAS EXPERTS NETWORK INC wrote a very handy guide on the latest techniques for searching #Facebook.

#OSINT tip for #SocialEngineering: ZocDoc is a great place to get info on a person's doctor(s) and health issues.

Lots of people give a bit too much info in their reviews, such as

I went to [Doctor] to check out my [health condition]. They prescribed me [medication] and now everything is all cleared up!

Wouldn't be too hard to pretend to be their Doctor's assistant confirming email, address, etc.

Free / Tip:

One of the easiest ways I find all of someone’s accounts is that they tend to use the same phrases in their profile description bio sections.

It’s really easy to find you when you have the same Fight Club quote in every single one of your bios.

/ Pro-Tip of the Day: Privacy and security are less convenient. There is no way around this. It is often likely that the less convenient a measure is, the more secure it is.

This is not just digitally, but in the physical world as well.

+ Locking your door is less convenient than not locking it.
+ Closing your blinds is less convenient than not closing them.
+ Randomly generating passwords and storing them in a password manager is less convenient than using the same, memorable password for everyone.
+ Using a password manager is less convenient than not using one.

Come to terms with this and you will be much safer and much more private.

It'll take up more surface space but maybe I'll hit up Goodwill and grab an actual old TV.

I want to get a small TV for my office so I can plug in my old game systems.

Noob question but on a TV what is the thing called that has the red, yellow, white, etc cables? To plug in older game systems, VCR, etc.

Milo Y just got deplatformed at a furry convention, and I figured this would be the appropriate venue to pass my thanks to the furry community

Working on my Clean Your Digital Footprint in 5 Days (or Less) guide and I really think I'm over delivering on this one.

It's so full of good info.

Just trying to automate more of my life.

For the record: my plan isn't to use bird site primarily and have it syndicated here.

My plan is to have my blog auto-post to Twitter and that syndicate here.

I have no interest in logging in to my twitter again after that is set up.

Is there a way to make it so that a bird site account automatically syndicates there to here, but not here to there?
