Openbook Sign up/login??


Hello my Friendicans.

Finally I got to be able to download the Openbook app, but I've no way to login or sign up.
I'm being asked for a 'registration link' to sign up, and to login, of course, the username and password. But I requested to join 3 months ago, and can only see the email address and first and last names on my profile on their site. Don't remember if I set a login then.

Where or how do I get the 'registration link'?

Word of the moment: "captology"




Financial Times is reporting on laws intended to crack down on manipulative tactics used by Facebook and other companies to confuse, trick and addict users. The UK is talking about banning "Likes" on Facebook. The US Senate is going after "dark patterns" design -- software designed to make choices beneficial to the company much more likely.

The article uses a word I hadn't heard before: "captology," defined as persuasive technology that exploits human psychology for commercial gain.

Common Sense media lists some of the techniques social networks, games and other sites use to hook kids.

The Financial Times piece is really about legislation. How do you ban persuasion — especially when the techniques are as subtle as a “Like” button or a simple notification?
