#FacebookPrivacyScandal

activistpost.com/2019/02/ftc-ne…
The FTC’s probe of Facebook began in March of last year in response to big social’s entanglement with #CambridgeAnalytica, a political consultancy firm connected to a U.S. subsidiary (SHELL COMPANY) of a UK defense contractor #SCLGroup, (Strategic Communication Laboratories)
#SCL improperly accessed data on 87 million of the social site’s users. According to reports, #Facebook knew for an entire three years that #CambridgeAnalytica was abusing and misusing user data but did absolutely nothing.

As promised, here's a retrospective on @GamesDoneQuick's broadcast design!

THREAD COMMENCES
The initial goal was to overhaul how information was conveyed to viewers. The old design didn't have a donation total, or any information about donation incentives or prizes. You had to rely on hosts talking about them or looking at the website. No good!
That brings us to our first layout: AGDQ 2015!
Gameplay layouts: 7 (4 standard, 3 widescreen)

A big improvement, but you can tell that I'm pretty new at this. As mentioned a few days ago, I put that bar at the top just to shove a logo and a hashtag into view. That was silly.

Finally, GIPS enables Nigerian #AssetManagement firms to compete for business on equal grounds with firms from countries with more developed standards. Only 15 of the top 100 global Asset Managers are not yet compliant. It's the gold standard in Investment Management.
If you're thinking of opening a mutual fund account or you're thinking of setting up an investment account, you should ask your #AssetManagement firm why they are not GIPS compliant. You should get a full picture of their past performance and a listing of ALL fees. Peace! ✌️
Tomorrow, I'll share a bit more information about doing due diligence on investment management firms. I'll point out some of the things to look out for. #AssetManagement

As a former journalist and a researcher of the relationship between #news and #socialmedia, I think I understand both sides of the argument over whether tonight's presidential address should be carried live. A few thoughts. #Thread
It's important to look at the decision in itself. Even if you think it violates precedent, and therefore is hypocritical, it may be that the previous decisions were the wrong ones and shouldn't be repeated.
For example, if I used to throw my trash out the car window, arguing that it kept prisoners busy doing litter pickup, that's clearly stupid. If I now know it's dumb and stop doing it, that is a greater good than my being consistent by still doing it.

Gone are the days generating audience engagement on #SocialMedia was primarily a passive process. The always-online audiences of today want to be involved, interact and co-create. Here are 2019 social media trends to look out for via @buffer. #AfricaTweetChat
1. Stories and rise of ephemeral content across social networks which will win out over highly-produced content
2. With more brands competing for people’s attention on social media, ordinary posts just aren’t going to cut it. Hence, brands will no longer afford to ignore social media ads.

If you are young, please don't buy into Nigeria's gerontocratic culture or the entitlement ethos. Stop waiting for handouts and for people to help you. Chart your career & life and just start EXECUTING. Create opportunities and be aggressive. If not, life will simply pass you by.
"Waiting for things to happen", is why some people wake up one day and their mates are so far ahead of them. Also people don't realise that not taking a decision is already a decision. They think things will just "happen", if they wait long enough. Stuff will align, miraculously.
Also note that everytime you "passively" do something corrupt, you are taking a decision. Your soul is changing; your values goal post is shifting.

Welcome to the 2018 Christmas Debate for young people. The motion: 'This house believes social media has made us a society of bullies'. Hundreds of school and A level students from across London have joined us @rcpsych. Follow the action here #rcpsychdebate
Debate chair Dr Jim Bolton asks the young audience to vote before the #rcpsychdebate - has social media made us a society of bullies? Oh it's close - pretty much 50-50. I wonder how that will change as a result of what the speakers say.
First up, Dr Elizabeth Masterson takes the stage, proposing the motion. She starts off on a positive note: #socialmedia lets you stay in touch with friends. But, she says, it allows anonymity - and that allows bullying to thrive. #rcpsychdebate

In 2016, when @AlderConsulting developed Nigeria's first #StateOfChurch report, certain things about the Nigerian Christian Church became obvious. #RCCGLoveInAction
At the time, Nigerian churches were abysmally bad at #socialmedia and youth related issues. They didn't quite know how to confront or address rapid adoption of technology and social challenges like porn addiction. #RCCGLoveInAction
I'm glad to say that in the 2 years since @AlderConsulting's #StateOfChurch report, Nigerian churches have risen to the occasion. Some churches have mastered media. Some employ professional therapists to help young people to tackle addictions. #RCCGLoveInAction

Ein Kommentar zu #DataLand: Wie ungünstig designte #KünstlicheIntelligenz bei #SocialMedia reale ungünstige Auswirkungen haben kann

Thread 1/
Gerade heute hat sich wieder ein ehemaliger YouTube-Entwickler kritisch zum Algorithmus und dessen Auswirkungen geäussert. Es hat Flache-Erde-Bewegungen aktiv gefördert und wohl BokoHaram beim Aufruf der Tötung von Geographie-Lehrern unterstützt

#Facebook hat zwar den ägyptischen Frühling verursacht, aber auch die entstehende Polarisierung befeuert, durch die Maximierung auf emotionale Posts. Soweit, dass mehrere Menschen starben.

Earlier today, I wrote a tweet about another @Twitter promoted tweet #phishing advert and I reminded you that I had written about it a couple of week ago. link.medium.com/UXh4iZtCMR

Well, guess what has happened since this morning...?

#security #scam
Amazingly, there had been another one today, @twitter!

This time, @farahmenswear is the main hacked account and the supporting account for this #phishing #scam is incredible...
Amazingly, the supporting accounts for this #phishing #scam include @EuroParlPress - the European Parliament Press Office. This is now off-the-scale!

Maybe @guyverhofstadt or @GabrielMariya can look into what is going on?

Defined: Self-centered, self-important. = Inflated sense of self.
Not necessarily at the clinical level, although some of the most dangerous people fall within this classification.
3) #ChildRaising & #NARCISSISM
Are narcissists insecure "deep down inside"? NO
They have high self-esteem, but only in individual/personal areas, NOT caring traits.

When I worked for a particular boss, I drastically reduced my online posts, I was literary scared.

"What if I say something opposing general office mindset and they fire me?"

"What if I say something west, that management reads and thinks it's south?"
When I became a founder, it was like freedom redefined. I shared fearlessly.

Sharing brought 3 amazing things:

- Opportunities opened up (speaking engagements, solved real problems & led to paid courses).
- Honed my writing skills.
- Polished my digital marketing skills.
Gosh, for the first time, I realized I had missed so much by my self-inflicted fear.

~ Mark that 'self-inflicted fear'! Think ~

Even so, I think my boss missed too, perhaps I could have brought some opportunities for the firm I worked for.

What we know about Cesar Sayoc and #SuspiciousPackages: Everything could have been planted, faked and framed. This is literally a #MadeForTv event. #Fonts, #Decals, #WhiteVans, #SocialMedia
Notice how the Fonts on the Packages were Extra Large, Computer Printed and in Bold. This makes them easy to be filmed and Broadcast to push the Democrat Narrative.
The Devices: Standard components arranged to simulate explosives yet were basically harmless. Once again PERFECT for MSM Broadcast. FYI Digital Clocks all contain Batteries.

Google+, you burst on to the #socialmedia scene like a comet. A rubbish comet in a fermement of amazing comets but a comet nonetheless. As others said you were wonderful & important, selling their services on the back of you, I said you were rubbish. I take my share of the blame.
As you became a wasteground, we continued to see the charlatans say you were a vital part of the #socialmedia spend. You weren't. #Search was always more important - along with the other social networks. #Google does so many things so amazingly well but this was never one of them
But it seems to be that you lived your life like a candle in the wind,
slowly going nowhere while the Twitter gleamed
And I would have liked to know you
But you were just too bad
Your candle burned out long before
The budget ever did.

🚨 Impersonation Alert! 🚨
1. Is Jide Sanwo-Olu REALLY on Twitter?
2. If yes, which one of these below is the real Jide Sanwo-Olu?

Is it @BJSanwoolu via @Mr_JAGs [with the correct spelling Sanwo-Olu] or @jideS via @Ayourb?

#LagosAPCPrimaries
#SocialMediaInNigeria
Impersonation in Nigeria Twitter is a major problem but what’s interesting about impersonation of political brands is that it’s often done by party/candidate loyalists or friends & family in an attempt to position themselves for political appointment

#SocialMediaInNigeria
Research shows that the rofo rofo of Ambode V Sanwo-Olu is mild compared to the tussle to manage a politician’s #socialmedia. And despite zero comms training or emotional intelligence, political ‘youth’ will crush each other as well as trained professionals

I hold the view (held by some individuals for various reasons) that the #TeamPatriot hashtag is connected to a psychological operation. At present, I don't know by whom/for what. Argumentation will follow. #Twitter #PsyOp #PsyOps #MAGA #TCOT #QAnon #WWG1WGA #Resist #TheResistance
Over time, if my view changes along these lines (#TeamPatriot hashtag not connected to a psychological operation), I will make that clear. For the time being, I will write in this thread (and in replies) with respect to my current viewpoint.
Using "psychological operation" as a term calls to mind conspiracy theories, intelligence activities, etc., which are legitimate considerations of course. However, since we are dealing human communication, the ancient art of rhetoric is always on the table of analysis.
