  1. People are been screened continuously on Facebook. Many of my friends who share anti-mainstream content is banned frequently. I myfelf got banned twice just because I was writing against Saudi.. The so called sleeping muslims are now awaken and sharing fake news, articles and pictures from CNN, BBC, Euronews etc and crying like [edit]. Moreover I couldn't share a thing but just sit and read them. I'm loosing my self control and don't know what to do to stop this [edit] fake news. What is your story?
  2. I can relate to it in the context of a couple of discussion boards (which I've outgrown) but I can't relate to it when it comes to popular social media platforms like those mentioned in tags. I don't have twitter or instagram or viber or whatever. I have a very old FB account which remains idle most of the year except lately when I've needed to use frequently to administer a travel group and do only and only that. But it seems social media is fast becoming a health hazard and a social crisis. I'm sure there are people among the readers who suffer from the addiction. How do you tackle it and what do you think about "social media addiction?"
  3. https://gizmodo.com/former-facebook-exec-you-don-t-realize-it-but-you-are-1821181133 Last month, Facebook’s first president Sean Parker opened up about his regrets over helping create social media as we know it today. “I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because of the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other,” Parker said. “God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.” He went on to explain what “this” is: So we are in a really bad state of affairs right now, in my opinion. It is eroding the core foundation of how people behave by and between each other. And I don’t have a good solution. My solution is I just don’t use these tools anymore. I haven’t for years. Speaking more broadly on the subject of social media, Palihapitiya said he doesn’t use social media because he “innately didn’t want to get programmed.” As for his kids: “They’re not allowed to use this [Edited Out].”
  4. Salaam Alaykum. Well, a friend and I have created a page called Mourning For Husayn and we would ABSOLUTELY appreciate it if everyone who has a Facebook can like and follow it. We just started it so there's not much of content put out but I promise that we will keep the page active and hence propagate the word of Aba Abdillah, inshaAllah It would mean the world to us, keep us in your du'as
  5. MULTAN, Pakistan (AP) — A minority Shiite Muslim was sentenced to death in Pakistan for sharing blasphemous content about Islam on social media, a government prosecutor said. Judge Shabbir Ahmed announced the sentence for 30-year-old Taimoor Raza on Saturday in Bahawalpur in eastern Punjab province, according to Shafiq Qureshi. Raza was arrested last year for allegedly posting derogatory content about Sunni Muslim religious leaders and the wives of the Prophet Mohammed on Facebook. Qureshi said Bahawalpur's counter-terrorism force arrested Raza in April last year following a complaint that he was showing onlookers objectionable material on his cell phone at a bus terminal. He added that Raza had previously posted other blasphemous material on Facebook. Pakistan is a predominantly Sunni Muslim country and the rivalry between Shiite and Sunni Muslims dates back to the seventh century when they had a disagreement who should be the heir to Islam's Prophet Mohammed. Under Pakistan's harsh blasphemy laws, anyone accused of insulting God, Islam or other religious personalities can be sentenced to death. Pakistan last year arrested 15 people, 10 Muslims and five non-Muslims, on blasphemy charges, according to a report issued by the independent rights group Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. Raza’s defence attorney said his client had been charged with two unrelated sections of the law to ensure the maximum penalty. “Initially, it was a case of insulting remarks on sectarian grounds and the offence was 298A, which punishes for derogatory remarks about other religious personalities for up to two years,” said Fida Hussain Rana, the defence counsel. Raza was later charged unde section 295C of the penal code, related to “derogatory acts against prophet Muhammad”, Rana said. Social media represents a new battleground for the Pakistani fight against blasphemy. Authorities have asked Twitter and Facebook to help identify users sharing blasphemous material, and have distributed text messages encouraging Pakistanis to report fellow citizens. Human rights defenders have expressed concern that the country’s blasphemy laws, and the authorities’ zealous application of them, provide a tool for people to carry out personal vendettas, particularly because nobody is ever punished for making false accusations. Interesting fact :Raza was arrested last year after a debate about Islam on Facebook with a man who turned out to be a counter-terrorism agent. He was one among 15 people arrested by the counter-terrorism department last year, accused of blasphemy, according to the HRC, Pakistan. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jun/11/pakistan-man-sentenced-to-death-for-blasphemy-on-facebook How easy it is for anyone to frame people by doing this. Start a facebook discussion and shias will say what they say about the three caliphs and Ayesha and you can sentence them to death for blasphemy.

  8. Salam aleykum my brothers and sisters I really want to ask if there are some Italians here who are Shia Muslims (mostly i mean converts). Im Italian myself but born and raised up in Switzerland and all the years i found the truth on the Quran and the Ahlul Bayt. I want to create a Facebook page for a world wide Shia Muslim community of Italians no matter where you live. The page should be connect the Italians from their faith so basically we can post and discuss things about Hadithes, Quran verses, converts stories, political views, lectures etc. in Italian or English. I only need few Admins to help the page, but without any issue against others their marja's or views. The page is also for the communication and help for brothers and sisters. If any get interest for the page pls write me or here. Wa salam
  9. (bismillah) (salam) This article describes one of the many ways how data generated from our Facebook accounts (or any other social media website) can be used to try to 'understand' us. Specifically, the article mentions how data scientists at Facebook found patterns in the frequency of status updates between a couple, such that these patterns reflected whether the couple were courting, or if they had started a relationship. Hopefully, the very brief article would be fond useful by those of us who would like to know what these big companies do with our data. (wasalam)

  11. Recruiting all Australians! :D https://www.facebook.com/groups/AustralianShiaReverts/
  12. Assalamu Alaikum Warahmathullah Dear Islamic Scholars, Brothers and Sisters. Today FaceBook has became a society requirement for majority of Muslims around the world. Even though many scholars gives fatwa to stop using FB, people are getting addicting to it faster than getting rid of it. Let me pointed out some facts that I see on FB - FB is user friendly, can connect with similar interest, browse interesting subjects, share similar thoughts and learn anything interesting. - FB has "targeting ads" based on Age, Sex, Religion and Location, where If you are a Muslim girl of 17, you will get boys images of 18+ of all kinds and vice-versa - Most Muslims working on Islamic Dahwa withing FB communities, and its looks like they keep failing due to the fact 99% of dirty environment. My Question is, Why cant we Muslims have a SAFE ISLAMIC SITE similar to FB providing all features it has ? Is that Muslims are illiterate to do so ? or is it Muslims has no money to invest on it ? Having said, with my limited knowledge of Islam, I just started a sample site for MUSLIMS ONLY. Its at Jeeem.com neither Im saying my site is perfect nor promoting it. But my point is, why we cant do something similar in large scale ? What I really wanted to see is to take off ALL Muslims away from FB providing them a site with similar features. If you have any positive ideas, please elaborate. Jazakallah hair
  13. Something similar was reported last year as well. The program is covert i.e. students are to hide the fact that they're being paid to write positively about the Israeli regime. Students offered grants if they tweet pro-Israeli propaganda In a campaign to improve its image abroad, the Israeli government plans to provide scholarships to hundreds of students at its seven universities in exchange for their making pro-Israel Facebook posts and tweets to foreign audiences. The students making the posts will not reveal online that they are funded by the Israeli government, according to correspondence about the plan revealed in the Haaretz newspaper. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office, which will oversee the programme, confirmed its launch and wrote that its aim was to “strengthen Israeli public diplomacy and make it fit the changes in the means of information consumption”. The government’s hand is to be invisible to the foreign audiences. Daniel Seaman, the official who has been planning the effort, wrote in a letter on 5 August to a body authorising government projects that “the idea requires not making the role of the state stand out and therefore it is necessary to adhere to great involvement of the students themselves, without political linkage or affiliation”. According to the plan, students are to be organised into units at each university, with a chief co-ordinator who receives a full scholarship, three desk co-ordinators for language, graphics and research who receive lesser scholarships and students termed “activists” who will receive a “minimal scholarship”. Mr Netanyahu’s aides said the main topics the units would address related to political and security issues, combating calls to boycott Israel and combating efforts to question Israel’s legitimacy. The officials said the students would stress Israeli democratic values, freedom of religion and pluralism. But Alon Liel, the doveish former director-general of the Israeli foreign ministry, criticised the plan as “quite disgusting”. “University students should be educated to think freely. When you buy the mind of a student, he becomes a puppet of the Israeli government grant,” he said. “You can give a grant to do social work or teach but not to do propaganda on controversial issues for the government.” http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/students-offered-grants-if-they-tweet-proisraeli-propaganda-8760142.html

  16. (bismillah) (salam) In a time where individuals around the world are connected through various social networking websites, we have recently decided to utilize this opportunity to create a ShiaChat Fan Page on the well known social networking website FaceBook. We find this a good way to stay connected and also most importantly spread site awareness through fans interacting on the page itself. The URL to the page is: http://www.facebook.com/pages/ShiaChat/76464127621 However, there is something more in store: We are offering five $25 (USD) cash prize to any five randomly selected members. Members becoming fans up until May 15th, 2009 (deadline) will be eligible to win this. This is only the beginning of what we hope to be another exciting way to connect with your fellow Shi'as around the globe. Brought to you by ShiaChat.com Wassalam
