FACEBOOK penalizes pro-Trump Diamond & Silk: 'Unsafe to community'...

Diamond And Silk have been corresponding since September 7, 2017, with Facebook (owned by Mark Zuckerberg), about their bias censorship and discrimination against D&S brand page. Finally after several emails, chats, phone calls, appeals, beating around the bush, lies, and giving us the run around, Facebook gave us another bogus reason why Millions of people who have liked and/or followed our page no longer receives notification and why our page, post and video reach was redu...

The pair say it took “6 Months, 29 days, 5 hrs, 40 minutes and 43 seconds” to get a response, which they add the network said is “final and it is not appeal-able in any way.”

They posed several questions to Facebook and Zuckerberg, including, “What is unsafe about two Blk-women supporting the President Donald J. Trump?”

“This is deliberate bias, censorship and discrimination. These tactics are unacceptable and we want answers!” they wrote.

Fine the Zuck out of Fakebook !

Take down Zuckerberg and his Leaning-in colleague

Suspends another data analytics firm...
Could Face Record Fine...
Consultants program Zuckerberg for Hill grill...
Sandberg suddenly backs out of interview....

Facebook's disclosure last week that its search tools were used to collect data on most of its 2.2 billion users could potentially trigger record fines and create new legal vulnerability for not having prevented risks to user data, said three former federal officials.

The three former officials, all of whom were at the Federal Trade Commission during the privacy investigation that led to a 2011 consent decree with Facebook, said the company's latest mishap may violate the decree's provisions requiring the implementation of a privacy program.

Capitol Hill may not give Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg a warm welcome next week. That's because when Facebook was asked to answer questions about Russia's fake news campaign during the 2016 election, the social media network sent a "relatively low-level official," which didn't go down well with lawmakers, says Ken Gude, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress. Zuckerberg will testify before Congress on April 10th and 11th about the Cambridge Analytica

The language was written to require Facebook to identify and address emerging threats to user privacy as its business practices changed over the 20-year term of the consent decree, said David Vladeck, who was head of the FTC's bureau of consumer protection when the decree was drafted and signed by Facebook. That meant the company was required to limit its sharing of user data and prevent outsiders from improperly gaining access, he said.

"Is it possible that this episode is also a violation of the consent decree? I would say yes," said Vladeck, now a Georgetown University law professor.

12 things you might want to delete from your Facebook page

With billions of users, Facebook is one of the most powerful influencers in the world.

But with anything that powerful, you have to be careful how you deal with it. There are certain pieces of information you might want to consider not having on there, like your home address, or where you went to school.

The recent Cambridge Analytica scandal has caused many people to question the role Facebook plays in their lives.Concerned about their privacy, some have deleted their accounts. 

If you want to keep your account but better protect your privacy, here are 12 things you might want to delete:

1. Birthday

Your birthday is one part of an important puzzle which also includes your name and address, with which people can more easily access your bank account and personal details.

2. Phone number

The best case scenario here is acquiring a polite admirer. Worst case scenario? A stalker who calls you incessantly.

 

3. Most of your "friends"

Oxford psychology professor Robin Dunbar theorised that humans can maintain approximately 150 stable relationships.

After looking at 3,375 Facebook users, Dunbar found that of their Facebook friends, 4.1 were considered dependable, and 13.6 exhibited sympathy during an “emotional crisis.”

Getting rid of the deadwood can make for a healthier interaction with social media.

 

4. Photographs of your child/young family member

Victoria Nash, acting director of the Oxford Internet Institute, posed a really good question on this subject, and it’s to do with consent:

What type of information would children want to see about themselves online at a later date?

Previous generations never needed to consider this, but the advent of the internet and social media has given this question more importance.

 

5. While we're at it, where your child/young family member goes to school

According to the NSPCC the number of recorded sexual offences has increased over the last year.

The report says:

Police recorded 36,429 sexual offences against children in the UK in 2013/2014… in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland police recorded the highest number of sexual offences against children in the past decade.

The last thing you want is to give an opportunity for a sex offender to find out where your child attends school.

6. Location services

Location services is only available on Android or iPhones.

In 2015 TechCrunch reported that over 500 million users accessed Facebook solely from their mobile, which means that the same number has the potential to broadcast their location online, and anyone who may or may not wish you harm now knows where are you.

7. Your manager

This one is a classic. Facebook is a social media platform, and to some degree your interactions ought to be relaxed.

But the CEO of your company can access your wall, he/she has access to every single one of your dodgy status updates - and yes that includes the one moaning about work.

Mark Zuckerberg posing for the camera© Provided by Independent Print Limited

Yes you can set your preferences to exclude your CEO from certain update, but isn't that more hassle?

 

8. Stop tagging your location

People forget the fact that tagging your location at home actually gives away your address.

9. When and where you're going for holiday

According to financial website This is Money, travelers who are burgled while they are on holiday may not get their insurance claim accepted if they posted their holiday plans on their social media accounts.

10. Your relationship status

If you want to celebrate the blossoming of a new relationship, don't do it on Facebook.

It may not work out, and the consequent "in a relationship" to "single" status change will make you feel worse than you already do.

11. Credit card details

Never. This is never a good idea.

12. Boarding pass pictures

Taking a photo of your boarding pass is often a way to brag about your holiday, but don't be silly! The barcode on your boarding pass is unique to you, and can be used to find the information you gave to the flight company.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says he's left Facebook over data collection

 

Facebook says 87 million may be affected by data breach. Video provided by AFP Newslook

LINKEDIN

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak told USA TODAY he's leaving Facebook out of growing concern for the carelessness with which Facebook and other Internet companies treat the private information of users.

"Users provide every detail of their life to Facebook and ... Facebook makes a lot of advertising money off this," he said in an email to USA TODAY. "The profits are all based on the user’s info, but the users get none of the profits back."

Wozniak said he'd rather pay for Facebook than have his personal information exploited for advertising. And he heaped praise on Apple for respecting people's privacy.

"Apple makes its money off of good products, not off of you," Wozniak said. "As they say, with Facebook, you are the product."

His surprise announcement marks the latest development in back-and-forth corporate sniping by tech leaders as Facebook copes with a scandal over the potential misuse of user data by political targeting firm Cambridge Analytica. In an update last week, Facebook estimated as many as 87 million people, mostly in the United States, may have had their data improperly shared.

Apple CEO Tim Cook started the unusual public criticism in late March. During a joint interview with Recode and MSNBC, he was asked what he would do about the crisis if he were in Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's position.

"I wouldn't be in the situation," said Cook.

He added that Apple reviews apps to confirm that each one meets the privacy standards his company has required for users.

"We don't subscribe to the view that you have to let everybody in that wants to, or if you don't, you don't believe in free speech," said Cook. "We don't believe that."

Uck-erberg is Zucked !

Lawmakers could give hell...
Call to replace him as chairman...
Firestorm rages...

Lawmakers will get the chance to grill Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg this week about the company’s data practices, its role in elections, and whatever else is on their mind.

The big picture: Members of the three committees questioning Zuckerberg will all recognize that it’s the rare chance to take their Facebook criticisms straight to its founder and get the media attention that comes along with that.

 
  • The three GOP committee chairmen — Sen. Chuck Grassley, Sen. John Thune and Rep. Greg Walden — have all have been willing to take on large tech companies in recent months. Walden indicated the industry would find itself regulated if it didn’t step up, Grassley called a top internet lobbyist to a hearing on guns, and Thune joined Walden in questioning Apple about its battery slowdowns.
  • Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham are both critical of the companies in the context of national security. Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, has asked social platforms to investigate the role of bots in the social media campaign to release the House Intelligence Committee Republican memo about the Justice Department’s Russia investigation.

Our thought bubble: The most striking moments of a congressional hearing come when a lawmaker surprises the witness with unexpected — or unexpectedly aggressive — questions. A tough hit against Zuckerberg by a lawmaker who's not on this list would have a good chance of grabbing headlines.

/ 2 /

Lawmakers, meanwhile, have signaled they intend to get tough on Facebook and other online services over privacy.

"A day of reckoning is coming for websites like @facebook," Democratic Senator Ed Markey wrote on Twitter Friday.

"We need a privacy bill of rights that all Americans can rely upon."

Representative Ro Khanna, a California Democrat, agreed that legislation is needed "to protect Americans' dignity and privacy from bad faith actors like Cambridge Analytica, who use social media data to manipulate people."

GO GET HIM!  What's to lose??

Zuckerberg faces congressional inquisition...

Largest 'Black Lives Matter' Page A Fake...

Body parts from threatened wildlife widely sold on FACEBOOK...

For at least a year, the biggest page on Facebook purporting to be part of the Black Lives Matter movement was a scam with ties to a middle-aged white man in Australia, a review of the page and associated accounts and websites conducted by CNN shows.

The page, titled simply "Black Lives Matter," had almost 700,000 followers on Facebook, more than twice as many as the official Black Lives Matter page. It was tied to online fundraisers that brought in at least $100,000 that supposedly went to Black Lives Matter causes in the U.S. At least some of the money, however, was transferred to Australian bank accounts, CNN has learned.

Fundraising campaigns associated with the Facebook page were suspended by PayPal and Patreon after CNN contacted each of the companies for comment. Donorbox and Classy had already removed the campaigns.

The discovery raises new questions about the integrity of Facebook's platform and the content hosted there. In the run-up to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's testimony before Congress this week, Facebook has announced plans to make the people running large pages verify their identity and location.

ALL EYES ON ZUCK...

5acbe994c407b3d9368b4cc9-1136-568.jpg

Suit-wearing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

Some of the questioning Mark Zuckerberg has faced has not been technically savvy, and the CEO at times has found himself explaining basic features of the social network.

Under questioning from Senator Capito, the 33-year-old had to explain the difference between deleting and deactivating user accounts, and whether Facebook takes a cut of sales of products on Facebook.

He has also repeated ad nauseum throughout the hearing that Facebook doesn't actually sell user data.

6:43 p.m. ET: Facebook has considered a paid, ad-free option, Zuckerberg says.

Facebook has considered a paid-for, ad-free version of Facebook, Zuckerberg says. "In general we believe the ad model is the right one for us," he says — but "certainly we consider ideas like that ... [it is] reasonable to think through."

6:31 p.m. ET: Zuckerberg told: "Your user agreement sucks."

6:31 p.m. ET: Zuckerberg told: Senate Commerce and Judiciary committees

Senator Kennedy from Louisiana bluntly tells Mark Zuckerberg: "Your user agreement sucks."

In a rambling question, the senator critiques the social media company's terms of service, asserting that "the purpose of that user agremeent is to cover Facebook's rear end. It's not to inform users about their rights."

(Note that Zuckerberg admitted earlier in the hearing that he doesn't believe users read the terms of service before agreeing.)

Hate speech?: Anything that make Zuck uncomfortable?

DEVELOPING AI TO CENSOR SPEECH -- BEFORE POSTED...
Senator Grills: 'How Do You Define Hate Speech?'
'DOESN'T FEEL' LIKE MONOPOLY!
Admits didn't notify FTC of data leak...

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg tries to define hate speech

 

Watch Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) grill Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the definition of hate speech:

Sasse explained to Zuckerberg that while some speech issues have broad agreement—taking down terrorist content, for example—there ought to be a space for debate on the issues. “Adults need to engage in vigorous debate,” he said.

"Can you imagine a world where you might decide that pro-lifers are prohibited from speaking," Sasse asked? "It might be unsettling to people who've had an abortion to have an open debate on that, wouldn't it?"

Zuckerberg response? "This is a really hard question."

Actually, it's really not.

But as we saw with Kevin Williamson's firing at The Atlantic, the left largely defines hate speech as "anything that makes me uncomfortable." The captains of social media industries by and large agree with that definition, and to varying degrees, want to censor speech that falls into that category. Certain views (including opposition to abortion and gay marriage) are now deemed too vile to have a platform because someone might be triggered or have their views challenged.

20,000 Brainwashed SJW ideologues will determine what is Hate Speech at Fakebook

5513617079042490259no.jpg

(Btw the 1st Amendment supports Free Speech, & does not ban anything called Hate speech, but these ill-educated Useful Idiots may not care)

“Hate speech is one of the hardest, because determining if something is hate speech is very linguistically nuanced. You need to understand what is a slur and whether something is hateful, not just in English, but a majority of people on Facebook use it in languages that are different across the world.”

Facebook has developed and deployed AI tools to find terrorist propaganda, Zuckerberg said, and nearly all ISIS and al Qaeda content that is removed from Facebook is flagged before “any human sees it.”

“That’s a success in terms of rolling out AI tools that can proactively police and enforce safety across the community,” Zuckerberg said. “Hate speech, I am optimistic that over a five to 10 year period we'll have AI tools that can get into some of the nuances, the linguistic nuances of different types of content to be more accurate in flagging things for our systems, but today is just not there on that.”

The Facebook CEO said that by the end of 2018, the company will have 20,000 employees devoted to security and content review.

German Historian Banned for Criticizing Islam...
Company working with Mueller to probe Trump...

LOWRY: Tech giant has always been big swindle...

Once again, Mark Zuckerberg is sorry.

The founder of Facebook, who has apologized for privacy breaches throughout much of his company’s existence, is back at it, on a much larger stage than ever before.

The proximate cause is the Cambridge Analytica controversy. In violation of Facebook’s rules, the Trump-linked political consultancy schemed to get access to the data of 87 million users. This has made Facebook a scapegoat for Trump’s victory on par with the Russians and James Comey (at least before the FBI director got fired and became a Trump adversary).

In 2012, Barack Obama’s re-election campaign did a less-underhanded version of the same thing as Cambridge. The great chronicler of the Obama digital operation, Sasha Issenberg, wrote of how its “ ‘targeted sharing’ protocols mined an Obama backer’s Facebook network in search of friends the campaign wanted to register, mobilize, or persuade.”

No scandal ensued — rather, the Obama digital mavens were hailed as geniuses who changed campaigning forever.

It’s not Zuckerberg’s fault that he has suddenly been deemed on the wrong side of history, but the Cambridge Analytica blow-up is bringing a useful spotlight on the most sanctimoniously self-regarding large company in America.

Facebook can’t bear to admit that it has garnered the largest collection of data known to man to sell ads against and line the pockets of its founder and investors.

Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale Calls for Transparency in Facebook Blocks and Bans

President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, has called on Facebook to show greater transparency by appointing an ideologically diverse group of users to analyze the platform’s censorship choices.

“If @facebook really cares about not looking like a censor. They should post all blocked and banned posts/users in a special area that is viewable by a select group of diverse Americans. Right, left, and all types of social groups. Transparency!”

His comments come as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees, where he faced questions over growing concerns that Facebook routinely blocks and censors conservative content.

“We consider ourselves to be a platform for all ideas,” said Zuckerberg, in response to a question from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) over whether Facebook considers itself  a “neutral public forum.”

Parscale also took to Twitter to muse over why senators did not ask Zuckerberg questions about how the Trump campaign successfully used their platform rather than attributing to theories surrounding Russia and illegally handling data.

“Why doesn’t a Senator ask @facebook CEO about our campaign and how we used their platform,” he tweeted earlier. “Oh wait, they all already know we did everything the right way, with zero collusion, no improper data, with great marketing from an awesome candidate.”

"The Left likes Zuck..."

70+ year old men get hoodwinked by a data salesman/synth, and they're too old and dumb to realize it. Meanwhile Zuckerberg insults US data retention (rightfully) while lying completely about not knowing how long Facebook stores data on people who have left the platform.
