You’d think if the senator was there to do the questioning he’d have already been informed as to what it was all about. Our justice system at work. Smh.
@Sarcastic Wombat, I might be reading it wrong but I think the senator was being facetious.
@Snypabob, perhaps you’re reading my statement wrong.... Maybe if I’d chosen a more transparent user name.
@Sarcastic Wombat, perhaps.. I think I'll chalk it up to that.
@Sarcastic Wombat, this exchange was great.
@Sarcastic Wombat, 👍
@Snypabob, you may be reading it wrong but I think our wombat friend may be being facetious. Us sarcastic creatures must stick together
@Mr Sarcastic, Well now that I read your name I think you're being sarcastic, meaning he was serious. Now we're back at square one.
If you don't like it then don't log into Facebook. Simple.
Well he’s obviously not going to admit to being a lizard!
Let me see if I have the correct. A company used a Facebook API to collect data on 50-80 million people and then violated the FB terms of service by selling that information to another company. Who in turn used it to market for political gain. Am I missing anything?
@ios11, can’t reply with what you missed and it’s pissing me off. OFC this goes through.
@ios11, yes, and fb was collecting data on users after they had logged out of fb in order to provide the users with "ads that the users would want to see." Oh, and even if someone didn't have fb, fb would still keep tabs on the non-users
@Naberrie, that’s how cookies work dude, cookies are what stores the information and Facebook just access those to be able to tell...
Still fvck zuckerburg. Can't get over the fact that he thinks the elections getting rigged by Russia were facts. And that he believes in censorship.
@BlazingBowman, I loved how squirmy he was about censorship. Like a simple yes or no question”is Facebook a neutral place” but he couldn’t answer because he claims they are but everyone knows they aren’t.
@Richard Cypher, no seriously guys were a free speech platform. Ignore the people we've been banning for daring to disagree even a little.
@BlazingBowman, meanwhile I see animal rights groups posting gory pictures of dead or maimed people, celebrating their death/injury and wishing more harm and death on people because they like to hunt.
But no that’s not hate so it’s not against the rules
@Richard Cypher, or isis accounts recruiting kids.
@Richard Cypher, well if you’ve been seeing that on Facebook then why aren’t you flagging it to be removed? If you’re not flagging it. Then of course it’s not going to be removed. If you’re not doing your part to flag something that clearly goes against the terms of service then it will never be removed.
As he said in the meeting, “we react to things as we learn about them. AI technology isn’t that great at sorting it all out yet.”
I can guarantee you stuff like that gets removed once it’s been made aware to the people that handles blocking content. So start flagging inappropriate content. There are buttons right there. It’s only a couple clicks away.
@Seohn, I have flagged it. The extremely bloody and gruesome pictures got taken down but that’s it. They say the rest of the content(praising the death and slaughter of people and hoping more people die, encouraging violence against them) is not against their policy. They encouraged me to just block the content I don’t like. Which is all well and good but they censor and take down whatever falls under their personal views as “hate speech.” that’s the problem. That is a buzzword saying they will take down whatever They personally believe is hate speech. That’s what the censorship questions to Zucc where about: they claim to be a neutral ground for everyone to be welcome but they aren’t.
I have no problem with them saying “yeah we are leftist and we will censor content from the right that we don’t like.” That’s being honest and it’s their website. But I have a problem when they claim to be something else especially when they are a publicly traded company. Investor fraud is real
@Richard Cypher, Its hate speech if the people in the post are calling for violence or death of others. Flag it again and remind them of this. Tell them they should be doing their job. Even Mark Zuckerberg describe hate speech this way. Someone wasn’t doing their job.
Keep in mind they’re probably not going to search through Facebook users entire post to find this stuff. You have to flag each individual thing.
@Seohn, it was a group not a specific person I am referencing
