How a Small Team of Journalists Overcame Facebook Censorship






'Facebook seemed to have outdone itself again in its ongoing suppression of independent media when, earlier this month in coordination with CNN, it banned four pages belonging to a company that was not even accused of breaking any of the platform’s rules.

The genesis of In The Now’s ban is striking as it has never concealed its funding and it had been reported on years ago. Nonetheless, a U.S. government-funded neoconservative think tank saw a problem with In The Now and partnered with CNN to expose it. CNN identified the owners of In The Now to Facebook and used yet another neoconservative think tank, which has been partnering closely with Facebook for the past few years, to scaremonger in its article about Russian meddling in American politics.

Now, Facebook is reversing its decision following outcry from the public.

Facebook’s advertising ban against RT - which was accused in a January 2017 Office of the Director of National Intelligence report of seeking to sow “radical discontent” in the United States during the presidential election, including with TV shows that did not air during the race - became a powder keg, leading to a new era of heightened hostilities in the U.S. establishment’s social-media information war. The measly 12-page document gave tech giants like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter carte blanche justification to intervene against alternative media publications that were growing in popularity on their platform.'

Nick Clegg - privacy regulations will threaten Facebook's business model

Nick Clegg claims new privacy regulations will threaten Facebook's business model as he lobbies against social media crackdowns in private meetings with EU officials
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6791919/Nick-Clegg-claims-EUs-new-privacy-regulations-threaten-Facebooks-business-model.html





'Sir Nick Clegg has claimed EU's new privacy regulations will threaten Facebook's business model.

The former deputy prime minister and Liberal Democrat leader started working for the social media behemoth last year.

In his role as chief lobbyist, the 53-year-old has told EU officials that plans to protect users personal messages could 'outlaw' its partnerships with online advertisers.

The proposed e-privacy regulation is being proposed by the European Commission and would mean social media firms would have to request consent of account holders to access their personal communication. Documents obtained by The Sunday Telegraph of a meeting with Andrus Ansip, vice president of the commission said: 'Nick Clegg stated as main Facebook's concern the fact that the said rules are considered to call into question the Facebook business model, which should not be 'outlawed' (e.g. Facebook would like to measure the effectiveness of its ads, which requires data processing),' according to minutes obtained by this newspaper.

'He stated that the [existing] General Data Protection Regulation is more flexible (by providing more grounds for processing).'

Mr Ansep said firms could 'monetise data' but only after getting consent from users.

It comes after increasing concerns about social media companies and privacy - and shortly after Facebook announced it is shifting toward a 'privacy-focused' future.

In lengthy blog post on Wednesday last week, CEO Mark Zuckerberg detailed a plan to bring end-to-end encryption to Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram messaging services – confirming previous reports that the firm planned to stitch the three together.

The Facebook boss acknowledged the site's reputation, which has been tarnished in recent years as a result of its lax-approach to the protection of its users' information, and promised to rebuild its services on the principle of privacy.'

Violation of what? Users puzzled by Facebook’s ban on sharing Zero Hedge links






'Users complained that Facebook blocked their attempts to share stories published by popular anti-establishment blog Zero Hedge, citing the violation of community standards, ‘abusive’ content, and ‘errors’ among the reasons.

“Over the weekend, we were surprised to learn that some readers were prevented by Facebook when attempting to share Zero Hedge articles,” the publication wrote on Monday, calling the practice an “arbitrary act of censorship.”

Some users on social media reported experiencing problems while trying to share Zero Hedge’s stories on Facebook.

Mark Zuckerberg wants to build a 'brain-computer interface' that can read your THOUGHTS, report claims
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6796861/Mark-Zuckerberg-wants-build-brain-computer-interface-read-THOUGHTS.html





'Facebook is developing technology that could soon make it possible to read your mind.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg detailed how the Silicon Valley giant is researching a 'brain-computer interface' in an interview with Harvard law school professor Jonathan Zittrain, according to Wired.

In the near future, this system would allow users to interact with augmented reality environments using just their brain - no keyboards, touchscreens or hand gestures required.

The concept that Zuckerberg envisions would allow users to navigate menus, move objects in an AR room or even type words with their brain. Users would wear a device akin to a shower cap on their head that's capable of picking up blood flows, brain activity and thoughts, Wired explained.

This technology is helped by the fact that researchers can already detect when a user is thinking about something in particular by looking at their neural activity.

A mind-reading device will make it that much easier for humans to interact with technology, Zuckerberg claims.

'The way that our phones work today, and all computing systems, organized around apps and tasks is fundamentally not how our brains work and how we approach the world,' Zuckerberg told Zittrain, according to Wired.

'That's one of the reasons why I'm just very excited longer term about especially things like augmented reality, because It'll give us a platform that I think actually is how we think about stuff.''

Mark Zuckerberg calls for stronger regulation of internet
http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/mar/30/mark-zuckerberg-calls-for-stronger-regulation-of-internet


'The Facebook boss, Mark Zuckerberg, has set out how he believes the social network and the internet should be regulated.

The firm’s founder and chief executive said there was a need for governments and regulators to have “a more active role”.

Zuckerberg said he believed new regulation was needed in four areas – harmful content, election integrity, privacy and data portability.

In an editorial published online in the Washington Post and on his own Facebook page, Zuckerberg said: “Every day we make decisions about what speech is harmful, what constitutes political advertising, and how to prevent sophisticated cyberattacks. “These are important for keeping our community safe. But if we were starting from scratch, we wouldn’t ask companies to make these judgments alone.

“I believe we need a more active role for governments and regulators. By updating the rules for the internet, we can preserve what’s best about it – the freedom for people to express themselves and for entrepreneurs to build new things – while also protecting society from broader harms.”

Zuckerberg said legislation was important for “protecting elections” and it should be updated, adding that Facebook had already made “significant changes around political ads”.

With European Union elections due to take place in May, Facebook has already said any advertisers in the EU will undergo tighter checks, which will require documents confirming their identity and location to be submitted, amid fears of foreign interference.'

Facebook caught asking for new users' email passwords

Facebook caught asking for new users' email passwords
http://boingboing.net/2019/04/03/facebook-caught-asking-for-new.html





'Facebook is asking new users to give it the passwords to their email accounts as the price of entry, reports The Daily Beast.

Quote
Facebook users are being interrupted by an interstitial demanding they provide the password for the email account they gave to Facebook when signing up. “To continue using Facebook, you’ll need to confirm your email,” the message demands. “Since you signed up with [email address], you can do that automatically …”

A form below the message asked for the users’ “email password.”

“That’s beyond sketchy,” security consultant Jake Williams told the Daily Beast. “They should not be taking your password or handling your password in the background. If that’s what’s required to sign up with Facebook, you’re better off not being on Facebook.”


At this point, the most unsettling thing about Facebook is that it keeps churning out the apologies and promises as it descends to abuses that would have seems impossible to get away with even a few years ago. It's a wolf with a tiny, creepy sheep mask balanced on its snout that far too many journalists feel bound to respect.

One of the most nauseating things online is writers who are scathing about Facebook on social media but whose published journalism takes everything it says in steeple-fingered good faith. Twitter, the bar next to the public defenders' office.'

Hundreds of millions of Facebook records exposed on public servers – report
http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/apr/03/facebook-data-public-servers-amazon


'More than 540m Facebook records were left exposed on public internet servers, cybersecurity researchers said on Wednesday, in just the latest security black eye for the company.

Researchers for the firm UpGuard discovered two separate sets of Facebook user data on public Amazon cloud servers, the company detailed in a blogpost.

One dataset, linked to the Mexican media company Cultura Colectiva, contained more than 540m records, including comments, likes, reactions, account names, Facebook IDs and more. The other set, linked to a defunct Facebook app called At the Pool, was significantly smaller, but contained plaintext passwords for 22,000 users. The large dataset was secured on Wednesday after Bloomberg, which first reported the leak, contacted Facebook. The smaller dataset was taken offline during UpGuard’s investigation.

The data exposure is not the result of a breach of Facebook’s systems. Rather, it is another example, akin to the Cambridge Analytica case, of Facebook allowing third parties to extract large amounts of user data without controls on how that data is then used or secured.

“The data exposed in each of these sets would not exist without Facebook, yet these data sets are no longer under Facebook’s control,” the UpGuard researchers wrote in its blogpost. “In each case, the Facebook platform facilitated the collection of data about individuals and its transfer to third parties, who became responsible for its security.”'

Facebook Ad Algorithm Is a Race and Gender Stereotyping Machine, New Study Suggests
http://theintercept.com/2019/04/03/facebook-ad-algorithm-race-gender/





'How exactly Facebook decides who sees what is one of the great pieces of forbidden knowledge in the information age, hidden away behind nondisclosure agreements, trade secrecy law, and a general culture of opacity. New research from experts at Northeastern University, the University of Southern California, and the public-interest advocacy group Upturn doesn’t reveal how Facebook’s targeting algorithms work, but does show an alarming outcome: They appear to deliver certain ads, including for housing and employment, in a way that aligns with race and gender stereotypes — even when advertisers ask for the ads to be exposed a broad, inclusive audience.

There are two basic steps to advertising on Facebook. The first is taken by advertisers when they choose certain segments of the Facebook population to target: Canadian women who enjoy badminton and Weezer, lacrosse dads over 40 with an interest in white genocide, and so forth. The second is taken by Facebook, when it makes an ad show up on certain peoples’ screens, reconciling the advertiser’s targeting preferences with the flow of people through Facebook’s apps and webpages in a given period of time. Advertisers can see which audiences ended up viewing the ad, but are never permitted to know the underlying logic of how those precise audiences were selected. The new research focuses on the second step of advertising on Facebook, the process of ad delivery, rather than on ad targeting. Essentially, the researchers created ads without any demographic target at all and watched where Facebook placed them. The results, said the researchers, were disturbing:

Quote
Critically, we observe significant skew in delivery along gender and racial lines for “real” ads for employment and housing opportunities despite neutral targeting parameters. Our results demonstrate previously unknown mechanisms that can lead to potentially discriminatory ad delivery, even when advertisers set their targeting parameters to be highly inclusive.


Rather than targeting a demographic niche, the researchers requested only that their ads reach Facebook users in the United States, leaving matters of ethnicity and gender entirely up to Facebook’s black box. As Facebook itself tells potential advertisers, “We try to show people the ads that are most pertinent to them.” What exactly does the company’s ad-targeting black box, left to its own devices, consider pertinent? Are Facebook’s ad-serving algorithms as prone to bias like so many others? The answer will not surprise you.'

Mark Zuckerberg leveraged Facebook user data to fight rivals and help friends, leaked documents show

https://nbcnews.com/tech/social-media/mark-zuckerberg-leveraged-facebook-user-data-fight-rivals-help-friends-n994706

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg oversaw plans to consolidate the social network’s power and control competitors by treating its users’ data as a bargaining chip, while publicly proclaiming to be protecting that data, according to about 4,000 pages of leaked company documents largely spanning 2011 to 2015 and obtained by NBC News.

The documents, which include emails, webchats, presentations, spreadsheets and meeting summaries, show how Zuckerberg, along with his board and management team, found ways to tap Facebook’s trove of user data — including information about friends, relationships and photos — as leverage over companies it partnered with.

In some cases, Facebook would reward favored companies by giving them access to the data of its users. In other cases, it would deny user-data access to rival companies or apps.

For example, Facebook gave Amazon extended access to user data because it was spending money on Facebook advertising and partnering with the social network on the launch of its Fire smartphone. In another case, Facebook discussed cutting off access to user data for a messaging app that had grown too popular and was viewed as a competitor, according to the documents.

All the while, Facebook was formulating a strategy to publicly frame these moves as a way of protecting user privacy.

This move is not about stopping "dangerous individuals and organizations", but purging dissent, constructive criticism of government and unpopular opinion. If a mass shooting, terrorist attack, military intervention or stolen election happens how quickly will Facebook ban those that question the official narrative.  We just witnessed the media refuse to call CIA sponsored attack on Maduro a coup.   This is why forums and other videos platforms are still desperately needed.

Facebook bans Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, Louis Farrakhan over hate speech

https://cbsnews.com/news/facebook-instagram-bans-alex-jones-milo-yiannopoulos-laura-loomer-from-platforms-today-2019-05-02/

Facebook banned Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, Paul Joseph Watson, Paul Nehlen, Louis Farrakhan and InfoWars on Thursday over violations of its policies against "dangerous individuals and organizations." The ban includes the removal of Pages and Groups representing the users. It also extends to Facebook's other services and platforms, including Instagram.

"We've always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology," Facebook said in a statement. "The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today."

Facebook plans to launch 'GlobalCoin' currency in 2020

https://bbc.com/news/business-48383460

Facebook is finalising plans to launch its own crypto-currency next year.

It is planning to set up a digital payments system in about a dozen countries by the first quarter of 2020.

The social media giant wants to start testing its crypto-currency, which has been referred to internally as GlobalCoin, by the end of this year.

Facebook is expected to outline plans in more detail this summer, and has already spoken to Bank of England governor Mark Carney.

Founder Mark Zuckerberg met Mr Carney last month to discuss the opportunities and risks involved in launching a crypto-currency.

Facebook has also sought advice on operational and regulatory issues from officials at the US Treasury.

The firm is also in talks with money transfer firms including Western Union as it looks for cheaper and faster ways for people without a bank account to send and receive money.
