1/7 This was a FASCINATING article from @FortuneMagazine

Overconfident #tech #CEOs have overpaid for ‘box tickers’ and ‘taskmasters.’ Here’s why the real ‘creators’ will survive the mass #layoffs…
2/7 "$CRM CEO Marc #Benioff and $META CEO Mark #Zuckerberg have admitted that they hired too many employees under the assumption that the growth their #sector experienced during the pandemic would continue."
3/7 "In periods of growth, the errors made by overconfident #CEOs are often buffered by the upswing of the economic cycle. In contrast, during upswings, underconfident CEOs lose out because they stay hamstrung with #risk aversion."

A common refrain from anti-anonymity #Facebook apologists is that its #RealNamesPolicy promoted "civility" by making users "accountable" for their words. In this conception, snuffing out anonymous speech is key to protecting "the vulnerable" from trolls and other bad actors. 1/ Cambodian dictator Hun Sen's Facebook photo of himself swimm

🔴 #USA #Trump
Donald Trump exige d'être déclaré PRÉSIDENT ou l’organisation IMMÉDIATE d’élections présidentielles. L'ancien président a publié sur son compte Truth Social un message cinglant à l’adresse du FBI, qui a dissimulé l'histoire de l'ordinateur portable de 🔽
Hunter Biden, accusant le FBI d’avoir joué un role décisif dans les elections présidentielles.
Dans le message, Trump a écrit:
"Il s'avère donc, de manière écrasante, que le FBI a enterré l'histoire de l'ordinateur portable de Hunter #Biden avant les élections, sachant que 🔽
s'ils ne l'avaient pas fait, Trump aurait facilement remporté l'élection présidentielle de 2020."

Mai départ, le 45e président des États-Unis a qualifié cette manœuvre du FBI de "fraude" sans précédent dans l'histoire de l'Amérique.

Jepp, Sheryl #Sandberg tritt nach 14 Jahren als Kopf von #Facebook/#Meta zurück. Mal abgesehen davon, was sie danach so vor hat und wie ihr Verhältnis zu #Zuckerberg so ist, sollte man auch immer im Hinterkopf behalten, aus welcher Familie sie stammt.

‼️#Facebook programmed its algorithm that decides what people see in their news feeds to push content likely to make them ANGRY, treating ANGRY emoji reactions 5x more valuable than “likes.”

Anger kept users more engaged, making #Facebook more money.🤬…
#Facebook’s researchers warned that favoring “controversial” posts—including those making users angry—could open “the door to more spam/abuse/clickbait.”

2 yrs later, posts that sparked ANGRY reaction emoji were more likely to have disinformation, toxicity and low-quality news🙄
“Anger and hate is the easiest way to grow on #Facebook,” testified whistleblower @FrancesHaugen to British Parliament.

Internal documents show that #Facebook tracked real-world harms exacerbated by its platforms, ignored warnings from employees about risks of their decisions & exposed vulnerable communities around the world to a cocktail of dangerous content.…
‼️Mark #Zuckerberg testified *under oath* to Congress in 2020 that #Facebook removes 94% of the hate speech it finds before a human reports it.

Zuck LIED.

In internal documents, researchers estimated that Facebook was removing <5% of all hate speech.🤬

▶️A personal decision by Zuckerberg led to a crackdown on dissent in #Vietnam
▶️Measures to suppress hateful content are lifted after the 2020 US presidential election, allowing pro-Trump groups falsely disputing the legitimacy of the election to experience “meteoric” growth.

🚨Internal #Facebook documents show that posts—including by Trump—fueled the #January6thInsurrection. User reports of “false news” hit ~40,000 per hour.

On Instagram, the account reported most often for inciting violence was @realdonaldtrump.🤬…
One FB employee fumed, “This is not a new problem. We have been watching this behavior from politicians like Trump, and the—at best—wishy washy actions of company leadership, for years now….”
“… We have been reading the [farewell] posts from trusted, experienced and loved colleagues who write that they simply cannot conscience working for a company that does not do more to mitigate the negative effects on its platform.”💥

Another "Big Tech" hearing today (noon ET) with G, TW & FB CEOs

Dems will complain that tech companies don't moderate enough content and Republicans will say they're being "censored"

Both sides will attack 230, but the real issue is the First Amendment…
Websites have the same First Amendment rights as parade organizers, newspapers or other media to exclude speech they find objectionable, however "unfair" their decisions may be

It's just not the government's job to second-guess those content moderation decisions
Republicans used to understand this. They spent 80 years attacking Fairness Doctrine mandates for broadcasting, yet are now demanding a Fairness Doctrine of their own

Here's Rep @CathyMcMorris Rodgers firmly rejecting such nonsense in late 2019

Was passiert wenn die eigenen Fans nur aus Schwurblern und Verschwörungs-Anhängern bestehen?

Irgendwann wird man zwangsläufig auch Teil der "globalen Verschwörung".

Hier schön zu sehen am Beispiel von #AttilaHildmann.
Eine Nachricht bezeichnet ihn als "V-Mann" (verdeckter Informant), der seit 25.08.2020 aktiv wäre.

Natürlich schön belegt mit Schwurbel-Links.

Die Reaktion vom Reiskanzler ließ natürlich nicht lange auf sich warten.
"[...] erste Regel: nicht jeden scheiss auf Telegram glauben"
Kommt da etwa sowas wie eine Erkenntnis?!

"zweite Regel: NUR AH GLAUBEN!"
Ok. Doch keine Erkenntnis.

Bei Sekten sagt das Oberhaupt auch oft, dass man nur ihm glauben soll. Zufall? Wir glauben nicht.

🔴 #EEUU 🇺🇸

El Senado realizó duras críticas a #Twitter, #Google y #Facebook en el Senado de EEUU por la moderación de contenidos durante las elecciones 🗳
Sundar Pichai (Google), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) y Jack Dorsey (Twitter) por videoconferencia, explicaron al Comité de Comercio de la Cámara alta, y se ampararon en la Sección 230 de la Ley de Decencia en las Comunicaciones, informó la @AFP.
(En la imagen, Jack Dorsey de TW)
"Mi preocupación es que estas plataformas, se convirtieron en un poderoso árbitro de la verdad y el contenido al que los usuarios pueden acceder", dijo el senador de Mississippi, el republicano Roger Wicker, que preside el comité; quien en 2013 recibió una carta con veneno.

Two years ago Zuck told @karaswisher “I’m Jewish, and there’s a set of people who deny that the Holocaust happened. I find that deeply offensive. But at the end of the day, I don’t believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different..."
On Monday, #Zuckerberg said his thoughts on holocaust denial had changed "with rising anti-Semitism, we're expanding our policy to prohibit any content that denies or distorts the Holocaust.”
#Zuck says "I've struggled with the tension between standing for free expression and the harm caused by minimizing or denying the horror of the Holocaust.”

Manche Admins von #QAnon Kanälen könnten nicht einmal Satire erkennen, wenn es um ihr Leben ginge.

Hier am Beispiel einer angeblichen #Facebook News.

"Neue Facebook-AGBs: Mark #Zuckerberg hat Anrecht auf Erstgeborenen eines jeden Users." Image
"Hat wahrscheinlich kaum einer registriert. [...] Vieles ergibt jetzt einen Sinn. Das muss man sich noch einmal auf der Zunge zergehen lassen: Zuckerberg wollte das Anrecht jedes Erstgeborenen der FB User!"…
Quelle ist die Satireseite @DieTagespresse.

Wenn der Admin sich die Mühe gemacht hätte mal auf "Über diese Seite" zu klicken hätte er das auch gelernt.

"Stimmt das, was in der Tagespresse steht?
Noch nicht, aber bald." Image

Whats going on #Facebook? Why it became a platform for the fundamentalist to propagate all the proofless shit? why #FreeThinkers cant question the very authenticity of the #Quran and Hadith and how those books came about?
#MarkZuckerberg… @BanglaBrit1972
It is valid to point out that such a belief system that maintains the notion of “I blindly believe and hence it must be true”, is against all forms of rational reasoning and proof.
Mr #Zuckerberg, many of our FB accounts have been deactivated including my own. pls take action
We also think FB is succumbing to requests from the govt of countries like Bangladesh to muzzle our voice.Many atheists, #exmuslims,writers, bloggers, leaders of non-Muslim, #LGBT rights activists have been killed in #Bangladesh by #Islamic terrorists, all in the name of #Islam
