Just a heads up to anyone who might care, UA Administration has decided to remove our links to Facebook (FB) along with deleting our complete Facebook page.

This is of course to positively distance ourselves in light of the recent events with FB / Cambridge Analytica and also and perhaps most offensive, comments which have become public, which were made by Mister Zuckerberg regarding how he perceived (perceives?!) Facebook users - a statement he made during Facebook's early years.

You are welcome to comment as you please, perhaps express your own feelings though do recall, we do not (never have permitted) discussing politics or religion - and the Facebook issue is neither of those, more in my opinion, one of ethics, proper business practices and respect, or the lack thereof.

A reminder to everyone that any / all of your personal information provided to UA, remains completely confidential and we do not permit access to these records (encrypted) to anyone outside of 'these walls'. We never have.

Our most important guideline here is and shall always be, "treat all other members with dignity and respect. People who answer questions at UA do so for free. Politeness and appreciation go a long way."

Thanks everyone,

I've never signed up for facebook so I cannot sympathize with everyone's pain. But I've heard it said that many personal relationships were strained due to the overly free, overly open, and overly personal expressions about of politics and/or religion.

With this thought in mind, I can see the wisdom of limiting philosophical discussions at UA to surrogate key designs versus natural key designs.

UA: Greatly appreciated.... If we could be a part of social media without malevolence that would be great. But since we/they, as civilized human beings, can't seem to get there, I believe UA has made the best decision.

Thank you,

I know I'm one of the younger ones here so Facebook was maybe more relevant to me this past decade.

That said, good move UA. I have never used the Facebook links.
Infact they nearly got me in trouble at a previous job! Someone tried to dig up dirt on me and make a hit piece on me. They alleged I was going on Facebook all the time (which was blocked) and gave evidence they got from logs of all this pings to FB to HR.

Luckily I was smart enough to work out they were from the embedded stuff on UA and protect myself and get the nasty person attacking me to back off.

Long story short, glad they are gone. Causes problems and no benefits. Lets keep UA constructive and about the subject! (No politics etc!)
