Find Us on Facebook and Twitter!
Just a friendly public service announcement: there is now an official Skepchick fan page on Facebook for you to “like” and “poke” and whatever else you kids do to Facebook pages these days (just don’t ask us to water your Farmville tomatoes). It should soon start automatically posting links to new Skepchick posts, and if you have any requests for other things we can do with it, let us know.
There is still a Skepchick group on Facebook, but do people still use those? I do not know. Facebook frightens and confuses me. I do, however, have a fan page of my own if you want to see what I’m up to â€“ I can’t add anymore friends so this is the next step, apparently.
You can also follow the @Skepchicks on Twitter, where we publish links to new articles as well as new events on the calendar and the occasional bonus links and announcements. You can find a lot of the individual Skepchicks on Twitter as well â€“ they’re all on this list of Skepchicks.
Let us know where else we should be and what we should be doing to make your life more Skepchickified!
Welcome to being old. You will find many things now frighten and confuse you. The best thing is to set a rocking chair or old couch on your front porch so you can yell at kids to get off your lawn.
Is there a reason the Twitter links all use HTTPS? I don’t think they need to. I’m using Ubuntu, so YRMV, but they work better with just HTTP.
I think they fear the FireSheep:
If you’re not using https anyone on the same network can impersonate you if you are logged into Twitter, Facebook, Skepchick, etc. This has always been possible, but now there is an extension for Firefox that makes it easy.
Me too. And I’m afraid almost the same thing could be said for twitter, though that tends to be more of an idiotic useless toys thing with me.
If I’m not signed in to Twitter, it works fine. But if I’m signed in, it just loads the top banner and the rest of the page is blank.
But I think I’ve figured out what the problem is; I’ve got the NoScript plugin installed, and I have to allow amazonaws.com. Then it works. It looks like their style sheet is hosted there, and a few scripts, that aren’t used in the http version.
I didn’t notice before because I assumed I had all the relevant scripts white-listed.
