They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
I've got a phone that sometimes works and an email account that I can't remember. Best way to reach me - just COMMENT below. Thanks!
Hi! I'm Mike The Web Guy. My boss told me that I should start one of these blogs, even though I'm not "on the radio." After being told that it was a "good idea," I figured, "why not?" I could always use another thing to do. Things about me... I'm a HUGE San Diego Chargers Fan (Any SoCal Locals who want to get together for a game - COMMENT back at me and let's HOOK IT UP). I live in Clifton Park. I'm all about APPLE (sorry PC people). I have a woman who lives upstairs in my house who is related to me by marriage. We have two kids who pretty much run our social life.
How many Facebook friend requests have you denied because you don't know the person? Does it happen regularly? Yeah, you're not alone.
The New York Times had an article today about a growing trend on catching would-be-criminals: "catfishing." A police detective creates a fake persona, usually a teenage girl, and starts sending out friend requests to get leads. Welcome to the world of cyber crime fighting.
So that random Facebook friend request may not be so random after all. But that doesn't mean we should let our guard down. In a social network of about a billion people how many of these accounts are fake? Facebook estimates 8.7 percent, or 83.09 million accounts.
If you think you've been targeted, Facebook even has a quick page to report the fake account.
Moral of the story: just like in "real" life, make sure you know who your friends are!
