### Name of the Software Curious Person: Ayanoa
### Situation: the big google and facebook conspiracy and how to argue with it
to non-technical user
### Description of situation at hand:
A lot of friends I meet have facebook, have no knowledge of the privacy issues and no way of making direct, strong and not annoying arguments.
I want to subscribe in some online courses and they ask me directly if they can use my google account. All the time I say no. I cannot subscribe to these services. I give them a jetable address. But I loose a lot of time, lots of interconnections and I don't know if the webmaster implemented this, or if this is a big google conspiracy.
### Directed to Services: RSOC
### Total time available: 10-20
### Estimated Time for service: 20
### What would be a outcome:
Some recommendations and linking to something funny and "correct". I am already thinking of the solution that can help me and my friends who use facebook with closed eyes. New ideas.
RSOC ont renvoyé un mirioir, recommandé de faire qqch elle-même sur un blog/site et de pouvoir envoyer les gens vers ce site avec des arguments
Highlights: Fortune Blobservice & Agile Yoga (vocabulaire et imagination géniale)
Contente avec SITMM, avoir deux navigateurs suffit, bonne solution
### Exit status:
