Stay with us as we break down the myth vs. reality of #Facebook, according to the company's own documentation!

First up: Political #misinformation and violent extremism. Can Facebook stand up to the challenge? According to reports, the answer is a NO. 2/9 Image
Does #Facebook mislead the public about proactive hate-speech removal? The answer is YES — Facebook removes only 5% of the hate on its platforms!

Not just that, but the #FacebookFiles reveal that their platforms are literally primed for virality that promotes #hatespeech. 3/9 Image

‼️#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.

"Ihre Macht stützt sich auf der Unwissenheit der Mehrheit der Menschen", aber jetzt mal in Ruhe eins nach dem anderen.

Ein Thread

Wer könnte nach Meinungen (noch weniger) (Wirtschafts-)Experten die eigentlichen Profiteure der P(l)andemie sein? Laut @wolff_ernst ein digitaler finanzieller Komplex.

#Apple, #Alphabet, #Amazon, #Microsoft & #Facebook waren Ende September 9,1 Billionen $ wert. Das ist eine unfassbar hohe Summe, wenn man vergleicht dass das BIP von IT,D,F zusammen 8,6 Billionen ausmacht.

#thread le mythe de Babel est probablement l'un des plus puissants facteur d'explication à la fois de l'ascension et de la (possible) chute de #facebook. Pour Google, tout se joue autour du capitalisme linguistique (spéculation) décrit par @frederickaplan
pour Facebook tout se joue autour de la question de la modération linguistique. La spéculation linguistique fut pour Google la garantie de son rendement, la modération linguistique sera peut-être pour Facebook la garantie de son effondrement.
Spéculer c'est la capacité de faire varier arbitrairement, de changer la valeur marchande d'un bien, en l'occurence d'un mot pour le capitalisme linguistique.
Modérer c'est la capacité de rendre invariant un échange au regard d'un système de valeur(s) partagé(e)s.

Internal Alarm, Public Shrugs: #Facebook’s Employees Dissect Its Election Role

Company documents show that the social network’s employees repeatedly raised red flags about the spread of misinformation and conspiracies before and after the November vote
16 months before last November’s presidential election, a researcher at Facebook described an alarming development. She was getting content about the conspiracy theory QAnon within a week of opening an experimental account, she wrote in an internal report.
On Nov. 5, two days after the election, another Facebook employee posted a message alerting colleagues that comments with “combustible election misinformation” were visible below many posts.

Jambo! Yesterday was a busy day for @CounteringCrime but the best part (for me) was working w @ShubertMwarabu over VTC to teach about online scams that are infesting #swahili language social media, mostly on #facebook. In places FB calls ‘rest of world’ crime is many times worse. Image
We’re training journalists, comedians, musicians and activists who are creating Swahili-language content to spread the word of this risk. I love ❤️ supporting our great partners in Dar es Salaam. #Tanzania #Africa #socialmedia
Today @ShubertMwarabu followed up a day of training by appearing on Clouds FM Power Breakfast. He is singlehandedly getting the word out in his country and helping people stay safer on line. #asantesana Image

🚨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.”💥

Abro #Hilo

La revista "Time" propone eliminar #Facebook en una portada con Mark Zuckerberg.

La gran crisis de la red social ha puesto en una posición comprometida a su fundador, al que le importaría más el dinero que el bienestar de los usuarios. Image
Tras la caída global de Facebook, Whatsapp e Instagram, se ha abierto un debate sobre el problema que supone la existencia del monopolio que ejerce tan solo una sola empresa —la compañía dirigida por Mark Zuckerberg— en tres de las redes sociales más comunes y usadas del mundo.
El apagón de esta semana lo sufrieron 2.300 millones de usuarios, —más de 3.500 millones si agregamos los perfiles de todas estas redes sociales— lo que supone casi la mitad de la población mundial.

Is now a good time to take a look at #Facebook’s VP for Global Public Policy, Joel Kaplan; his connection to William Burck; Kaplan’s and Burck’s connections to Lindsey Graham—and how all three connect directly to Brett Kavanaugh?

We’ll start here:

On second thought, maybe we should start with Senator Graham’s performance during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. Keep this image in mind while reading the rest of the thread.

(2/) Image…
Anyway, it’s weird that the Zuckerberg-funded nonprofit’s ad for Graham didn’t mention immigration.

Here’s Mitch McConnell’s brother in law explaining how Graham’s ad was purchased by a “smart team of political operatives,” including Joel Kaplan:

Each morning I come onto @Twitter I pray there is some kind of @Hopeforjustice for #AmbroseGGBall.

But instead to witness @DavidLammy posting the most #sadistic #Facebook post to date knowing how he has treated the mother of murdered @forambrose1984 leaving her with a body in
@haringeycouncil without a single word from @NCLCCG_Haringey or #AndrewWalker since last June 2020.

Toni aka Ruth Lovell has been telling @GREATBritain how she has been treated by @metpoliceuk @MPSBarnet @MPSHaringey @MPSEnfield @CPSUK @IOPC_Help #CindyButts, @VpoDr
#bernardhoganhowe who has told the world how much we trust the #PoliceState, well 80% I do believe he quoted, to then be allowed to walk off

BGP - A possible reason behind the recent disappearance of #facebook #instagram & #whatsapp from the internet.

What is BGP ?

#facebookoutage #networking

A Thread 👇
BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) is the routing method that enables the Internet to function. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to do a Google search or send an email. Image
What is network routing?

“The name of a resource indicates what we seek, an address indicates where it is, and a route tells us how to get there”.

Sounds like #Facebook basically made everything reliant on networking with a single point of failure, including the doors to the server rooms that they needed access to to fix the failure.
I'm not sure what that failure point was, but it sounds like something to do with their DNS setup, which is the system that connects IP addresses (the technical map of the internet) with human-readable names (Domain Names).

Though it's likely more complicated than that...
IP addresses are also used in corporate networks (intranets) that live in a different address space than the general internet, so probably whatever broke also controlled their internal networks... including the doors to the server rooms.
