Page 6 April Edition Seven Lakes News In the wake of the scandal over Facebook’s privacy practices, users have become newly interested in the data that Facebook collects and retains about them. But while the social network makes it fairly simple to download everything it knows about you, it doesn’t provide a way to delete the information Facebook announced Wednesday, however, that in the coming weeks, it will expand the data it allows you to download to include likes, reactions, search history, and location history. Part of the rollout includes a new tool called Access Your Information, which allows users to more easily view and delete old posts, reactions, comments, and search history. For now though, your Facebook data is still likely fi lled of surprises. Android users were shocked to learn that Facebook retained metadata about their call and SMS history. That’s far from the only interesting piece of information you might fi nd by sorting through your Facebook fi le. Here’s tips for how to fi nd the Facebook Woes most interesting information in yours. First, you’ll need to download the fi le of data that Facebook has on you. To do so, go to your Facebook settings. At the bottom of the General tab, you should see an option to Download a copy of your Facebook data_. Once you have the fi le, you can download it as a folder to your desktop. The fi rst piece of information you will want to look at is a fi le labeled index.htm. Under Profi le, you’ll fi nd a list of basic information the site has about you, like the exact time you signed up for Facebook, the contact information you’ve provided, as well as any work or education history. One surprising piece of information on this screen: Facebook keeps a list of everyone you’ve previously said you were in a relationship with. The Photos tab contains every photo you’ve ever uploaded to the site, as well as related metadata, like the IP address from which each photo was uploaded. Scroll down, and you’ll fi nd a link to the facial recognition data that Facebook retains. If you click it, you can see your Example Count, which could be the number of photos Facebook used to train a machine learning algorithm to recognize your face. If you want to opt-out of Facebook’s facial recognition features, you can do it now. In the Friends tab you’ll fi nd every single one of your Facebook friends, as well as the date that you added each other. If you unfriended someone, and then re-added them later, they’ll show up on this list twice. The list also includes all of the friend requests that you have declined. Pay special attention to the very bottom of the page, where you can see what “Friend Peer Group” Facebook thinks you’re in. The most interesting part of your index is the Ads tab. There, Facebook will show you a list of ad categories it has associated with your account. Below this list you’ll fi nd advertisements you’ve supposedly clicked on; and below that is a distressing list of advertisers Facebook says “have your contact information.” (Former Facebook ad executive Antonio García Martínez suggests that this means the advertisers came to Facebook with your information, not the other way around.) They may have brought this information to the social network using Facebook’s custom audience tool, according to a Facebook representative. The last thing to check in your index is the Applications tab, which is a list of apps you’ve used to sign up with using your Facebook profi le. If you have an Android device, you may have given Facebook or Facebook Lite permission to access your call and text history years ago. Specifi cally, before Google changed how permissions worked in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, simply allowing Facebook to access your contacts also let it grab your call and message logs. Find out for sure by clicking the Contact Info tab. If you have granted permission, this screen will also include a certifi ed creepy list of your call and Get Rid of It. Now that you’ve looked through your Facebook data, here’s how to delete some of it. Keep in mind that Facebook says it plans to soon make it easier to delete data, but for now, the process is fairly cumbersome. L Matsakis Edited By; Millie Jameson

According to Darya Cowick “the planning department received complaints “ and Teresa Thomson the department Supervisor had all signs removed on March 23rd. According to Ms. Cowick “no sign can be placed within 15 foot of the roadway for safety reasons and a permit must be issued to place a sign. The only exception are political signs placed during the election season.” There were several complaints voiced to the Seven Lakes News with regard to the signs. One person said, “We are beginning to look like Myrtle Beach around here. It’s an eyesore everywhere you go”. The NC DOT states: DOT Permit Required No one may erect or maintain any outdoor advertising “structure, device or display” until he has obtained a per mit for it from the DOT. A DOT permit is also required for any person, fi rm, or corporation that is not an outdoor advertising business to erect an outdoor advertising structure, device, or display other than on property within 200 feet of the place where the goods advertised are manufactured or offered for sale, or where the business is carried on (CGS § 21-51). For these purposes, a “display” includes, in addition to erecting a billboard or structure, the pasting, painting, or posting of any advertisement or sign out-of-doors (CGS § 21-62). The application must have attached to it the written consent of the owners of the property on which the structure, device, or display will be placed (CGS § 21-50). Anyone who erects, maintains, displays, or allows to remain in view any advertisement, sign, billboard, or structure in violation of these requirements is liable for a civil penalty of $100 per day imposed by the transportation commissioner.
