Editorial Cartoon: Facebook and Email

Editorial Cartoon: Facebook, Email and Privacy

Here is a potential real FAIL for you.  Facebook has announced that they will now offer email service for it’s members allowing you to send emails to people outside your friend list.  With all the controversy surrounding privacy issues with Facebook, I think I’ll take a pass.

What embarrassing things could Facebook reveal to your “friends” if this happened?  C’mon you can tell us; it won’t get past this blog.

    Exactly. I don’t need my friends reading about my addiction to cheap wiener pills!

  2. Tony says:

    I don’t trust Facebook & after reading an article about their security issues & sharing their users personal details with developers etc I deleted my account

  3. Jillsy Girl says:

    I’m not sure I get it. What’s the difference between an email and a message, except one uses your email address which would in turn give it to the recipient?

  4. jynksie says:

    I don’t have a Facebook account, so the e-mail is no matter for me. Why? I have things to hide and Facebook would be my undoing! o.O (not really, I just don’t give a crap about all these social media pieces of crap. If I want to socialize, I’ll go interface w/ a real live person!)

  5. Joe says:

    If that happened everyone would know how boring I am o.O

  6. Bo Lumpkin says:

    I try never to put anything anywhere on the internet that I would be afraid of anyone finding out.

  7. bschooled says:


    Just so you know, “Smelly Naked Girls on Trampolines” is actually a very educational publication, Bearman.

    (Or, so I’ve heard.)

  8. John K says:

    Haha! Awesome! Yeah I’ll pass…and thanks for reminding me about my smelly girls subscription!

  9. Nate Fakes says:

    So true! I’m not touching Facebook email. Everyday, I get request, messages, etc. from “friends” who didn’t send them. And it’s not safe now to open up a message in Facebook now, so this is going to make it worst probably.

  10. DadaHyena says:

    I’ve actually had that happen more than once with my regular e-mails (accidentally forwarding something to nearly everyone you know), and it’s damned awful. I can see this happening on Facebook.

    …and I have to say that I got a big laugh out of today’s installment, namely “Smelly Naked Girls on Trampolines”. Order me up a subscription, yessir!

  11. jammer5 says:

    Thanks for the reminder. I gotta redo my subscription to Roadhouse Girls who Drink Beer and cant Shoot Pool.

  12. Duncanr says:

    I’m too much of a cheapskate to subscribe to “Smelly Naked Girls on Trampolines” – but if you wouldn’t mind passing on your copy when you’ve finished with it ? 😆

  13. SpilledInkGuy says:

    But think of all the additional people I could send the results of my ‘quizzes’ to! Come-on … who wouldn’t want to know what my favorite color REALLY says about me! 🙂

  14. G says:

    Sorry….after my dysfunctional experiences with Hotmail, Outlook (for work), and Yahoo, the absolute last thing I want is e-mail from a website that is notorious for making you opt out of things that you don’t want.

    • Bearman says:

      C’mon…I don’t think you have pissed off enough people on the web. Revealing your emails might only help. haha

      • G says:

        Au contraire kind and thoughtful sir.

        I managed to piss off loads of people on the web. All I do is act like myself and PRESTO! Instant enemies.

        Well, not quite PRESTO! because I still have to add milk, eggs, walnettos, stir vigoroulsy (but not shaken), pour onto a cookie tray using the oil from those smelly naked trampoline girls as a proper greasing (please get your mind out of the gutter) agent and cook for 35 minutes @ 375 1/2 degrees until a crispety golden brown.

        Then PRESTO! Instant enemies!

  15. George says:

    I wouldn’t trust Facebook with any information that I wouldn’t mind someone trying to blackmail me with in the future. 🙂 Those guys leak everything. But, of course, they couldn’t leak what we don’t tell them.

  16. MJ says:

    Ha! Funny material. I might be able to swing a guest cartoon for December.

  17. Friggin Loon says:

    Geez, but how else can I keep in touch with all my long lost Nigerian relatives ?

  18. Dan says:

    Bearman, you’re not seeing the big picture here. You could get twice as many Cialis emails with a new Fail account!

  19. susi spice says:

    i like this cartoon a lot hahahaha

    i know i will not be using that facebook email.

  20. Bo Lumpkin says:

    Thanks for the guest strip Bearman. I will be posting it tomorrow and leaving it up until my brain switches back on for one of the momentary spurts it has sometimes. It is truly an awesome gift. Thanks.

  21. Bo Lumpkin says:

    I hate it when I put in the wrong email address and get that doofus avatar.

  22. Me being me, pretty much every thing I write is embarrassing in one way or another. Different people just get to see different embarrassing parts of me. If any one person ever saw the whole package of me all at once, I’d die of shame.

    I just saw the way that sounded and I refuse to take it back. See what I mean?

    • Bearman says:

      I just saw the way it sounded and I agree. However, anyone who has read your blog will figure out pretty quick that you have nothing to hide.

  23. Facebook needs to just chill out. First they allow my boyfriend to change his relationship status to “single” without confirming it with me, and now this?? Total outrage.

    • Bearman says:

      I figured you would be mad b/c they don’t let you show multiple boyfriends on your profile. I mean you jump from one to another so much there has to be some crossover.

  24. facespace is bananas lately.

    gwen stefani should write a song about it.

  25. Dr. Cynicism says:

    The human resources one is hilarious! Love it, as always Bearman!

    • Bearman says:

      Thanks Doc. I can imagine someone in a home office who thinks people can only see him from the waist up not realizing how far down the camera can see.

  26. BuyWoWAccount says:

    Has their service started yet? I received a message from a friend yesterday, and I could read all of his other friends reply on that message. Not sure if this would be it.

    Buy WoW Account

    • Bearman says:

      No it sounds like that was just a group message internally on facebook. This is a service where you can email people who aren’t on facebook.

  27. Colleen Dick says:

    That photo of me and the accordion is pretty incriminating. Hey, the Mariachis made me do it!
