Personalize Your Drink

So, What’s the Deal?

My Starbucks Signature lets you build your drink, name it, and share it with your friends. My Starbucks Signature can also show you nutrition information, but it’s wrong, at least in my case. It doesn’t show the result of all customizations.

The site is user-friendly and the steps to creating one’s personal drink is very easy.

Who Owns Your Content On Facebook?

Banned by Facebook

When you go to the bank to rent out a security, they will inform you of their policy. They will also ensure you that if they want to terminate your contract at any point, they will first inform you of the reason they are terminating your contract for, they will offer you a respite and in certain cases some options for corrective actions, and they would always allow you to retrieve all of your personal effects that you have with their business. So if, for instance, I placed a photo album in my security deposit box, I will be able to retrieve it in case of termination so why is that not the case with Facebook?

There is a lot of talk about the evolving usage of social media, and especially about how their usage policy might be incompatible, harsh and sometimes completely biased in the way that it views the users of the service devoid of their circumstances. In the case of the protests in the Middle East and North Africa, there are several people that had their accounts deleted mainly because they didn’t register with their birth name. You need to look no further than the comments on our post about activating disabled Facebook profiles to learn how draconian the Facebook termination policy is.
