    Exclamation Why (and How) to Turn Off Socialcam on Facebook

    Socialcam is a feed of user-generated videos. Just by clicking on a Socialcam link in Facebook and accepting their app, every Socialcam video you watch from then on is shared to your Facebook friends automatically. The content is questionable, the titles of the videos are often salacious, and the images it posts in your timeline can be downright embarrassing.


    Socialcam offers user-generated video and popular videos from other sites like YouTube. The videos that appear in your Facebook feed are not from a media company vetting the videos, editing them, or (at the very least) showing some scruples about titling the offerings correctly.

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.

    A Socialcam video showed up on my newsfeed this past Friday. It had to do with a mother breastfeeding a 3 y.o. (not the one from a recent magazine) All that was on the screen was a very large naked breast. The source it originated from is an (elderly) Pastor. I messaged him and told him it was there. Needless to say he had no idea what to even do about it. The titles of these videos are deceiving. Block them.

    Thank you DK! Thank you! I've never watched one of the videos but everytime someone on my friends does, I know about it and I hate it!

    I read the title of this thread as Why (and How) to Turn Off Socialism on Facebook. I think I need a nap.

    I remember a year or so ago, there was one of these videos going around about a woman giving birth to an abnormally large baby. When someone clicked on the video, it showed up on their (and all of their friends') newsfeed as a woman's nether regions. It made me laugh but it would not have been funny if a child had seen it.

    There's probably an app for that, too, lol. (I actually read it the same way when I first came across the story, hehe.)
