An article written in 2012 about a project code named tärgus swampland.time.com/2012/11/20/fri…
An example of how we used that data to append to our email lists.
Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing.
They came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.
I am also 100% positive that Facebook activity recruits and staffs people that are on the other side.
I worked on all of the data integration projects at OFA. This was the only one that felt creepy, even though we played by the rules, and didn’t do anything I felt was ugly, with the data.
I start talking about Facebook at around minute 18, and had more to say, before getting dragged off stage because i didn’t understand the clock in the back of the room. Ha
In the talk, I was wrong about how easy it would be to find a commercial company who would have exploited the same open policy time period, to also suck in the information.
I was right about what keeps me up at night being about price discrimination. That is where all of the true potential ugliness comes out in an algorithm based world that allows micro targeting.
