Haven't logged-in to Facebook for awhile. But there are some decades old friends who I and well, she still depend on and love each other's advice. Never any romanticism, just great friends. So I sign in to tell her some tough stuff I may be going through for advice; and to see her status and maybe I could help... and I mean maybe we suck but that's not the point, the point is that my visits are moral and beloved, and one-to-one as either of any desire it. So about 6 humans/headers should be able to do a message to me. I have no idea if my own mom has a Facebook thing. No interest.

Yet this, Face Recognition/no human was there, WAITING...

Introducing Face Recognition For More Features
Hi David, we’re always working to make Facebook better, so we're adding more ways to use face recognition besides just suggesting tags. For example, face recognition technology can do things like:

• Find photos you're in but haven't been tagged
• Help protect you from strangers using your photo
• Tell people with visual impairments who's in your photo or video

You control face recognition. This setting is on, but you can turn it off any time, which applies to features we may add later.

-The Facebook Team


So on by default. Opt-out is the positive (intentional) move instead.

And, again, I sign out as much as possible but there's still a couple Facebook friends who I love. Sure I'll opt-out of this naked horrid affront of Facebook. But maybe I should even just burn all of my internet presence down to the ground.

And not to mention Google and Facebook and Amazon Billions of dollars in US government contracts.

Yeah, I'm human in ways and decades and mental problems and personal morals that few here would give a **** about. So no biography.

Other than in the past, again, as a worker (later supervisor), I was a friend to a female human and helped her mentally and financially, and she later did the same, and that is a bond to this day. Plus a lot of wacky drunk hijinks. Friday pizza and spades.

And ailing. She is, more than me. But has a wonderful daughter, who I'd met long ago. But also an amazing granddaughter now.

But struggles to get around. It's tough for me to ever....one of my best friends in high school, his dad died of an auto accident. I didn't know what to do...I avoided him. To my shame. Years later I told him that and he...welll....he heard it. Which meant my actions at that time did give him pain.

So...Facebook or not...or maybe whatever...maybe I'm just an *******......

[eta] Not that this impugns you at all or I mean it as a strawman. You're also a good person. I riffed....Sorry Bijou

So this is all over the news right now. Could someone give me a tl;dr version of why I should care that Facebook is selling people my "data" about what exactly...? I'm a white male, 32 years old and live in Palm Bay, Florida? Look at that. I'm giving away all my data for free. Who the **** cares.

Uh, first: yes all over the news now. Check my date though and your reactionary cunt-age. Perhaps.

And check also your insouciance. Which is a word only ******** would use, such as my. "Insouciance" ****. Sorry for that.

I guess Muslims and stricken people, struggling to get water dripping down from their cages' drip drip drip. Some even murder each other for that sweet nectar.

I mean...oh my god, do you think the benefits and dangers of Facebook and such are only pertaining to US users?

It's very difficult to argue with incredibly ignorant people who have no idea or a particular issue.


And your initial claiming of white male 32 in Fla is also an enigma. Almost asking for a reply to savage you. Which I have not done. Maybe you're a 32 white male idiot. Maybe you're a 22 year old black idiot.



If only all discussions aside from subjective feelings could be put into binary logic....

I also think that the crisis in Algeria is heightening. The Flintstones didn't do it because they couldn't get the bat powder to free enough space for their power converters. The notion that the notion of kerfuffles though around the world, etc is random psychopathic, I agree. Can you worry the how to not free is a casperberry? All that dripping water. It's a shame that we can't just paddle our way to a circular freedom disc when Facebook is trending away all our zigs.

Facebook will tag your *** if any of your friends or efforts led to a photo in a newspaper. They got your visage. They, like Wells Fargo, are lying. No one in government cares.

Shut it down. Stop sharing even traditional hard copy photos.

And is it too soon after a couple decades to YES blame-shame idiots for taking nudes/allowing of such?

I've taken a few photos of my lovers and they of me. Back in the film-camera day. And none explicit. And even that was stupid of us...me and my many lovers.

But yeah, if I had current lovers we wouldn't be instagramming or Iphoneing my ***** or her pussies or something.

Wake up and smell your limited education, young fools. You don't need to camera-phone and document the entirety of your erections and ***** expansions. Or uh, yeah. The ***** waking up. And the *****. Or whatever. I guess you young bucks got that all on your imovies and so even as such lament and cry when the icloud gets it too and it's all over the place. Oh me!

And that's the facts, jack.

ETA wtf. So ***** (labia) and ***** (vulva) are deemed curse words. ***** (penis) too. How dare anyone refer to medical nomenclature.

"Cocks" okay. But then "pussies" wasn't. Do these fiendish web designers love domestic cats yet hate chickens?

Eh. Anyway. Documentation of *** is an allure but there are too many leaks. Too less insurances in this digital age. And even prior (Marilyn Monroe! Burt Reynolds!). Sadly, don't do it, idiots.

Obama, all on his own, no GOP pressure, aided Saudi Arabia in their current Yemeni genocide. Take all the time needed to afterwards apologize...but just once, admit even this.

It's not like I want you to admit that Obama reigned over the biggest loss of wealth of black people. More immigrants deported than all other 20th century Presidents combined. More whistleblowers than all other previous Presidents combined. Enron? George Bush prosecuted them? He sucked? Yes? Welcome to Obama, zero bankers prosecuted. Zero torturers. Look forward not behind. New drone rules--anyone via the eye in the sky of military age is a terrorist. Post-facto too. New drone rules---assassinating Americans is okay. Their relatives trying to stop such in US courts will get the bum rush. Fracking. TPP. Pipelines. Warmongering, AFRICOM. Ukrainian coup. Honduras coup. Egyptian coup. Doing best to coup Venezuela.

Quote:
The Democrats focused their remarks on demands that the Internet companies take even more aggressive steps to censor content. In one particularly noxious exchange, Feinstein pressed Google’s legal counsel on why it took so long for YouTube (which is owned by Google) to revoke the status of Russia Today as a “preferred” broadcaster. She demanded, “Why did Google give preferred status to Russia Today, a Russian propaganda arm, on YouTube? ... It took you until September of 2017 to do it.”

Despite the fact that Feinstein and other Democrats were clearly pressuring the company to take that step, the senators allowed Richard Salgado, Google’s Law Enforcement and Information Security Director, to present what was by all appearances a bald-faced lie before Congress. “The removal of RT from the program was actually a result of…is a result of some of the drop in viewership, not as a result of any action otherwise. So there was … there was nothing about RT or its content that meant that it stayed in or stayed out,” Salgado stammered, in the only time he appeared to lose his composure during the hearing.

Salgado’s apparently false statement is of a piece with Google’s other actions to censor the Internet. These include changes to its search algorithm, which, behind the backs of the public, have slashed search traffic to left-wing websites by some 55 percent, with the World Socialist Web Site losing some 74 percent of its search traffic.


https://fair.org/home/media-ignore-government-influence-on-facebooks-plan-to-fight-government-influence/

Quote:
Facebook announced Thursday it was partnering with DC think tank the Atlantic Council to “monitor for misinformation and foreign interference.” The details of the plan are vague, but Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab wrote in a non-bylined Medium post (5/17/18) that the goal was to design tools “to bring us closer together” instead of “driving us further apart.” Whatever that means, exactly.

Behind its generic-sounding name and “nonpartisan” label, the Atlantic Council is associated with very particular interests. It’s funded by the US Department of State and the US Navy, Army and Air Force, along with NATO, various foreign powers and major Western corporations, including weapons contractors and oil companies.

[...]

When a venture that’s supposedly meant to curb “foreign influence” is bankrolled by a number of foreign countries—including the United Arab Emirates, Britain, Norway, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea—one would think that would be worth noting. Nor should US government money be exempt from the “foreign” qualifier with its suggestion of malicious influence; to most of Facebook’s 2.2 billion users, after all, the United States is a foreign country. (It should be noted the US government reserves the right to run unattributed propaganda on Facebook, and there’s much evidence they have. Needless to say, the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab hasn’t done any work in this space.)


And that's just government influence. The Facebook got your friend's cherry, busted it.

Regardless of the lame answer given, it's possibly because the US government didn't actually declare RT to be a "Foreign agent" until November of 2017? So Facebook actually beat the government on this.

Facebook certainly found itself in the odd situation of dealing with an about-face on the nature of RT itself. Prior to the 2016 election, the broad assumption was that Russian propaganda was generally favorable to what we would define as "liberal" interests (or at least "anti-Republican, given that some hosts and guests were on the far libertarian side of things as well). Point being that RT was generally viewed as a positive messaging source for the "left" in the US, and thus ignored by the Democrats, the Obama administration, and certainly the bulk of our social media tools like Facebook.

It basically got caught up in the "Russia helped Trump, thus everything Russian must be eliminated" hysteria. Almost certainly causing confusion among outlet controllers like Facebook, who viewed RT as being a positive message source for their audience, and would not have understood why it shouldn't have "preferred broadcaster status, just like folks like Al Jazeera. These are foreign media sources that provide alternative views of the world and news events. It's strange that despite the assumption that this should be about all foreign influence/meddling, it's being focused just on Russia (again, cart leading the horse. Target is Trump, so target what's associated with Trump, right?).

There's no innate reason to think that RT is any more or less a foreign propaganda source than any of those other foreign based sources. It's just the current climate that is causing this.

I'll also point out that free speech is free speech. I'm frankly a bit concerned by the idea that we should be empowering anyone, whether Facebook or the government, to decide what sort of speech is "allowed", and what is not. What shows up and what is available should be based on models of use/access (and yes, payment) and have nothing at all to do with whether someone on the source side of the media flow subjectively agrees with the content, much less the source of the content. To me, that's far more troubling than that someone might be able to point their browser at a media stream and *gasp* hear people expressing opinions. Even anti-American opinions.

Let the public decide what they like or dislike, or agree with or disagree with. Whatever. Yes, I know. I have as much healthy distrust in the average person being able to make good distinctions about the sources of information and/or veracity of whatever they're reading/watching as the next person (I'm probably more skeptical in fact). Um... But IMO, the alternative is worse. Having some process to shield people from "bad thought", it just a bad idea. Let it all out there, and let people figure it out.
