Facebook says Russia-linked ads that reached millions of Americans continued to 'sow division' and undermine Trump – not Hillary – even AFTER the 2016 election
  • Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch said in a Senate hearing that Russia-linked political ads kept running on the giant platform after the 2016 election
  • After Trump won the White House, Stretch said, 'we saw a lot of activity targeted at fomenting discord about the validity of his election'
  • Sean Edgett, Twitter's acting general counsel, said his company 'saw similar activity'
  • 'The same is true for Google,' added Richard Salgado, the search engine behemoth's senior counsel
  • Much of the focus on Russian involvement has come as part of a larger story that suggests Moscow instead sought to help Trump win the White House
  • Google insisted Tuesday that it's a technology 'platform,' not a news organization in its own right
  • And one senator demanded to know how Facebook couldn't spot ads from Russia that were being paid for in rubles

It sure is. Speaks volumes to how far humans have fallen from grace. Who knows maybe the aliens will say enough, and send humans back to the stone age to start again. If they are out there they will never allow the humans to leave this solar system.

  • Screen-grabs of highly implausible status updates are circulating online
  • Capture humble brags, 'accidental' (and flattering) selfies and outright lies
  • Followers were quick to call out Facebook users on their dishonesty

Would you send your NAKED photos to Facebook? Site is ridiculed for asking users to submit their sexy snaps in an attempt to stop jilted lovers posting revenge porn on the social network
  • Facebook is testing image recognition technology to identify revenge porn
  • Users are being asked to send sexy snaps to themselves on Messenger
  • Facebook will then create a digital fingerprint or link of that specific image
  • If anyone tries to upload it in the future it will automatically be deleted
  • But Facebook employees will first be able to view the unedited image

Zuckerburg should hire Anthony Wiener to head up this new department. Just get him a PC so he can personally handle filtering through these pictures while he is in the slammer.

I have 6 female Melinnials working for me. All stopped using Facebook, while using other social media. They don't like Zuckerburg. One says he pisses everybody off every time he opens his mouth. Another has a classmate from Hawaii who said the entire state hates him.

Just one Facebook 'like' is all it takes for advertisers to know your personality type and influence your behaviour with targeted ads
  • Ads created by researchers targeted millions of people based on a single 'like'
  • Experts used whether people liked certain pages to figure out their personality
  • These traits were used to target ads, boosting sales by up to 50 per cent
  • Study reveals even the smallest 'digital footprint' can be used to influence the behaviour of large groups of people

Facebook allowed employers including Amazon and Verizon to exclude older Americans from seeing their job ads
  • Investigation found employers are posting ads on Facebook which only appear for people in certain age categories
  • 'It's blatantly unlawful,' said Debra Katz, a Washington employment lawyer said
  • Some recruiters argue that age targeted ads on Facebook are no different than posting an ad in a magazine like Teen Vogue which aims contents at teens
  • But others argue that anyone is able to buy such magazines and read the job ad, while an older person on Facebook would never even know about the ad
  • 'We completely reject the allegation that these advertisements are discriminatory,' said Rob Goldman, a Facebook vice president
  • UPS and Verizon are among recruiters posting adverts restricted to certain ages
  • While Amazon, Northwestern Mutual and the NYC Department of Education, all say they are changing their recruiting policies in the wake of the investigation

You got to be apart of it to be affected by it.
GIM is my only social media nowadays. Never used a Myspace account or my LinkedIn. Never even tried Farcebook .

If one thinks about it FB opens people up to potential criminal victimization plus the the entire vanity issues of "see me" / hubris.

Plus now employers want access to applicants social media accounts for judging potential employment.

Facebook Blamed By U.N. Investigators For Spreading Hate Speech In "Possible Genocide"


by Tyler Durden
Tue, 03/13/2018 - 22:40

U.N. human rights experts investigating a "possible genocide" in Myanmar are blaming Facebook for their role in "spreading hate speech." The criticism, levied on Monday, is a fairly transparent example of the ongoing push to force social media platforms to monitor and regulate opinions deemed unfavorable or controversial (prior to the 2020 U.S. election, we assume, which Putin and Russian spies have surely hacked already).

Facebook did not immediately respond to the criticism, however the company has previously said it has made efforts to remove hate speech in Myanmar and block people who have consistently shared such content.

More than 650,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar’s Rakhine state into Bangladesh since insurgent attacks sparked a security crackdown last August. Many have provided harrowing testimonies of executions and rapes by Myanmar security forces.

The U.N. human rights chief said last week he strongly suspected acts of genocide had taken place. Myanmar’s national security adviser demanded “clear evidence”. -Reuters

Lawyer and former Attorney General of Indonesia, Marzuki Darusman - who chairs the U.N. Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar, says that social media had played a "determining role" in Myanmar.




“It has ... substantively contributed to the level of acrimony and dissension and conflict, if you will, within the public. Hate speech is certainly of course a part of that. As far as the Myanmar situation is concerned, social media is Facebook, and Facebook is social media,” he said.

It should be noted that Darusman came under fire in 2011 over a "discredited" report claiming that more than 40,000 civilians were killed in crossfire between Sri Lankan authorities and the Tamil Tiger rebels - with the Sri Lankan government calling the report "erroneous and replete with conjecture and bias."

The Darusman Report’s assertion that ‘a range of up to 40,000’ civilian deaths during the last phase of the war ‘cannot be ruled out,’ was reported in the media as if it was a factual statement that 40,000 civilians died. Some reports went further citing this ‘UN Report’ as having found that ‘over 40,000’ had been killed. -Daily Mirror

Facebook was a large part of public, private and civil life in Myanmar - used by the government to disseminate information to the public.

“Everything is done through Facebook in Myanmar,” says U.N. Myanmar investigator Yanghee Lee, nothing that while Facebook had helped the impoverished country, it had also been used to spread hate speech.

“It was used to convey public messages but we know that the ultra-nationalist Buddhists have their own Facebooks and are really inciting a lot of violence and a lot of hatred against the Rohingya or other ethnic minorities,” she said. “I’m afraid that Facebook has now turned into a beast, and not what it originally intended.”

A prominent critic of Islam, Myanmar monk named Wirathu emerged from a one-year preaching ban on Saturday and claimed that his anti-Muslim sentiment had nothing to do with violence in Rakhine state.

Facebook says it suspends and will sometimes remove any user "consistently shares content promoting hate," when asked last month about Wirathu's account.

“If a person consistently shares content promoting hate, we may take a range of actions such as temporarily suspending their ability to post and ultimately, removal of their account.”

(*cough* especially before the 2020 U.S. election *cough* as deemed by the hyper-liberal Facebook thought police at the ADL)

'We exploited Facebook to harvest millions of people's data': Whistleblower claims analytics firm employed by Trump's campaign tapped private information of more than 50M users without permission
  • 50million users' information was harvested without their consent by Cambridge Analytica in 2014
  • This happened after the firm had a $15m investment and wooed Steve Bannon promising tools to identify personalities of American voters and sway them
  • But CA did not have enough Facebook data to give Bannon the goods
  • According to Chris Wiley who worked at CA they utilized a system to acquire access to 50million Facebooks illegitimately
  • In 2014 a not yet-Trump Campaign chief strategist Steve Bannon was brought onto the board of Cambridge Analytica
  • Facebook says CA previously said they would destroy their users data in 2015, but they didn't follow through - FB blocked CA Friday while they investigate
  • CA insists that none of the data was used by the Trump campaign
  • Trump campaign officials downplayed Cambridge Analytica's role saying they used the them for TV advertising & paid some of its most skilled data employees
  • Special counsel Robert Mueller has requested that the firm turn over the emails of any employees who worked on the campaign

'They were on our side': Obama campaign director reveals Facebook ALLOWED them to mine American users' profiles in 2012 because they were supportive of the Democrats
  • Carol Davidsen, who worked as the media director at Obama for America, claimed Obama campaign mined millions of people's information from Facebook
  • She said that Facebook was surprised at the ease with which they were able to 'suck out the whole social graph'
  • But the firm never tried to stop them when they realized what was doing, and even told them they'd made a special exception for them
  • They 'were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn't have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side,' she tweeted
  • Davidsen said that she felt the project was 'creepy' - 'even though we played by the rules, and didn't do anything I felt was ugly, with the data'
  • Davidsen posted this in the wake of the uproar over Cambridge Analytica, and their mining of information for the Trump campaign
