More signs of imminent doom for ‘Facebook phone’: U.K. launch canceled
By: malterwitty

BGR exclusively reported last week that HTC’s First, also known as the “Facebook phone,” will soon be discontinued at AT&T. Sales during the phone’s first month of availability totaled less than 15,000 units according to our source, and AT&T has given up hope that things might turn around. According to a new report, AT&T isn’t alone.

Mobile News on Thursday reported that the HTC First’s launch has been canceled in the United Kingdom.

Evidence that Facebook's Revenue is Based on Fake "Likes"

 

I'd always wondered how some Facebook fan pages of people I'd never heard of had so many thousands of "Likes." I was told how, from my business partner, who runs BrasscheckTV. He told me that people in India were being paid slave wages to create fake "Likes" on Facebook. I suspect something similar is afoot on Twitter, as well.......

The problem is much worse than I originally thought.

 

Share this on Facebook ;)

 

Facebook is a complex ecosystem of individuals, creators, brands and advertisers, but I don't think it serves any of these groups particularly well because its top priority is to make money. Now, I don't think making money is a bad thing, in fact I hope to make some myself. The problem is the only way Facebook has found to make money is by treating all entities on the site as advertisers and charging them to share their content.

This business plan backfires because :

1) not all entities ARE advertisers and

2) it was the content from these people, specifically friends, family, and creators that made the site worth visiting in the first place.

 

Now the incentives are misaligned:
- individuals want to see great content, but they are now seeing more paid content and organically shared content which appeals to the lowest common denominator (babies, weddings, and banal memes)
- creators want to reach fans but their posts are being throttled to force them to pay to be seen
- brands and advertisers have to pay once to advertise their page on Facebook, and then pay again to reach the people who have already liked their page. Plus Facebook is not a place where people generally go to buy things.

Facebook stands in contrast to other social media like Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram where all content is shared with all followers.

Good comments.

 

Bring The F---er down! 

I never liked it much anyway - it is too controlling.

Probably it was set up by the CIA or the NSA anyway,

and has a huge component of its revenues from spying activities (just as Google has.)

 

One tapeworm like that is more than enough

"A man who is all caution, will never dare to take hold and be successful; and a man who is all boldness, is merely reckless, and must eventually fail. A man may go on "'change" and make fifty, or one hundred thousand dollars in speculating in stocks, at a single operation. But if he has simple boldness without caution, it is mere chance, and what he gains to-day he will lose to-morrow. You must have both the caution and the boldness, to insure success."
PT Barnum

Facebook's Psychological Experiments Connected to Department of Defense Research on Civil Unrest
 
There has been quite a bit of chatter this past week after it was revealed that a recent Facebook outage was the result of a psychological experiment that the company conducted on a portion of its users without their permission......
 
It turns out that this research was connected to a Department of Defense project called the Minerva Initiative, which funds universities to model the dynamics, risks and tipping points for large-scale civil unrest across the world.....
 

 

The U.S. government hasn't sought these capabilities for the sake of science. We know from the Cuban Twitter scandal, where the U.S. State Department where got caught red handed attempting to topple the Cuban government through social media, that these capabilities are already being used for offensive operations. Combine that with the fact that the U.S. Military got exposed in 2011 for developing 'sock puppet' software to create fake online identities and spread propaganda and an ominous picture snaps into focus.
 
The U.S. government is militarizing social media through a combination of technology and social sciences, and Facebook is helping them.

You may not know this...

Facebook's default option is they grab permission "to listen to your mic everywhere, all the time"

(And that means your cellphone too.)

 

And they are pushing to get more and more data

 

A great ap, would be one that tells you when your mic is turned on, and who is taking feeds

A Law Student takes on Spybook

 

Max Schrems: The Austrian Thorn In Facebook's Side
215x300.jpg

Max Schrems, a 24-year-old law student from Austria, has become one of Facebook's most prominent critics

There are likely many things about Facebook that annoy you. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could sit down for six hours with one of the company’s top executives to give him an earful about what you ‘dislike’ about the site? That’s what 24-year-old Austrian law student Max Schrems got to do yesterday, thanks to his having filed dozens of complaints in Europe about Facebook’s data practices. On Monday, Facebook’s European director of policy (and former MP)Richard Allan and another unidentified California-based Facebook exec flew to Vienna to meet with Schrems for a whopping six hours to discuss his concerns.

 

Of Facebook’s 845 million users, Schrems may be the one most aggravating to the company. Last year, the 24-year-old Austrian law student spent a semester in the U.S. at Santa Clara University in Silicon Valley. When a professor invited Facebook privacy lawyer Ed Palmieri to speak to the class, Schrems was shocked by the lawyer’s limited grasp of the severity of data protection laws in Europe...
