    Kelly Guthrie Raley was named “Teacher of the Year” at her Florida school, Eustis Middle School, for the 2017-2018 school year last month, according to Fox News. But now she’s being recognized for her cultural commentary following the tragic Florida school shooting. In a Facebook post that’s gone mega-viral, Ms. Raley analyzes American culture at-large and how it contributed to Wednesday’s shootings and other previous mass shootings. What did she say? Raley did not hold anything back. She wrote: Until we, as a country, are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for...

    “Facebook vice president of advertising Rob Goldman slammed the media for what he said was misleading coverage of Russia’s meddling in American politics. “ “Most of the coverage of Russian meddling involves their attempt to effect the outcome of the 2016 US election. I have seen all of the Russian ads and I can say very definitively that swaying the election was *NOT* the main goal,” Goldman said.

    YouTube and Instagram face ban in Russia unless they remove videos of oligarch Oleg Deripaska and deputy prime minister ‘relaxing on a yacht with an escort and discussing 'bad relations with America' Billionaire Oleg Deripaska and Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko were reportedly filmed by an escort on Deripaska's private yacht in 2016, which the Russian opposition, led by Alexei Navalny, claim is evidence of corruption and bribery. In one video, the two men can be heard referring to 'bad relations with America' and 'Nuland', referring to Victoria Nuland, the then Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs...

    Facebook is not a privacy company; it’s Big Brother on PCP. It does not want to anonymize and protect you; it wants to drain you of your privacy, sucking up every bit of personal data. You should resist the urge to let it, at every turn. There’s a new menu item in the Facebook app, first reported by TechCrunch on Monday, labeled “Protect.” Clicking it will send you to the App Store and prompt you to download a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service called Onavo. (“Protect” shows up in the iOS app. Gizmodo looked for it on an Android device...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | Feburary 14,2018 | Lucian Wintrich
    Facebook-owned Instagram just deleted one of the two Instagram accounts of Florida high school shooter Nicolas Cruz. One of Cruz’s accounts seemed to display a fascination with ISIS terrorists and Islamic extremism; the other one showcased Cruz wearing a MAGA hat and contained imagery such as him killing toads. If you guessed that Instagram removed the ISIS one, you got it right. Why would they remove that one but keep the MAGA hat one up? To control the narrative as this story develops. Unfortunately for them, Gateway Pundit has screenshot the entirety of both accounts.

    New York state’s highest court ruled on Tuesday that Facebook users may be required to turn over photos and other information that are relevant to litigation, even if they are shielded by “privacy” settings. By a 7-0 vote, the Court of Appeals reinstated a trial judge’s ruling requiring a Manhattan woman who was disabled in a horse riding accident to turn over to the defendant horse owner an array of photos taken before and after her injuries. Noting “significant controversy” over what information on Facebook deserves privacy protection, Chief Judge Janet DiFiore said it is appropriate to require disclosure of...

    With mom, dad and grandma signing up in increasing numbers, Facebook is losing younger users in the United States at a faster pace than previously estimated, researchers said Monday. A report by eMarketer said Snapchat is drawing youths away from Facebook at a quicker clip than Facebook-owned Instagram. Facebook is still growing in the US market, according to research firm, mainly due to increases in usage by older age groups. The report is the latest to highlight Facebook's problem with attracting and keeping young people, who have long been a core user base for the world's biggest social network. The...

    Trump supporters share more fake news on social media than any other political group, according to a new study from Oxford University. Researchers studied more than 13,000 Twitter users and 47,000 Facebook pages in the days leading up to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address to determine which social media users spread the most “junk” news. They discovered that Trump supporters on Twitter shared more unreliable news than all other groups combined. On Facebook, extreme conservatives share more junk news than all other audiences put together. The researchers defined “junk news” as “misleading, deceptive or incorrect information purporting...

    Joe Scarborough wants a “regulation” to be adopted that would force Facebook to inform readers of “lies” contained in Republican Facebook posts. Said Scarborough on today's Morning Joe: “As we’re talking about how 55% of Americans get their news from Facebook, and we talk about regulations that need to be put in place, there should be a threshold where they have to send out a blast to every Facebook subscriber that got these false stories [from Republicans] that the story they got was a lie.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Jim Carrey is quitting Facebook and dumping his stock — and is urging everyone else to do so as well. "We must encourage more oversight by the owners of these social media platforms," Jim Carrey said in a statement to CNBC. "This easy access has to be more responsibly handled. What we need now are activist investors to send a message that responsible oversight is needed. What the world needs now is capitalism with a conscience." The comedian tweeted on Tuesday he was selling his Facebook shares and deleting his page because the company profited from Russian interference during the...

    Facebook, Google, and other Silicon Valley companies are reportedly restricting employee relationships and dating practices with company dating policies. Employees at Facebook and Google are only allowed to ask out colleagues on a date once, and if they decline or simply reply that they’re busy, asking another time can open them up to sexual harassment allegations and disciplinary action.

Ward told the manager that he could not because he was in uniform and had to have his weapon on his person. The manager left to make a call, Ward writes, and then...

    WINTER HAVEN (FOX 13) - The FBI and local enforcement agencies across the country have issued warnings about a disturbing video circulating on Facebook and other social media networks. The bottom line: sharing the video, and even viewing, is a crime. The video, according to law enforcement officials, shows an adult male sexually abusing a young child. Facebook users have encouraged others to share the video to try to help catch the people involved in exploiting the child, but law enforcement agencies, including the Polk County Sheriff's Office, say sharing the video is actually a felony. "PLEASE DO NOT SHARE...

    New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) is calling on Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to take immediate action on Facebook’s “shameful” exclusion of Israel. When creating a background profile on Facebook, users are given 50 nationality options. These options include Palestine, while Israel is conspicuously absent. “Palestine is not even a country,” said Hikind. “How did it end up as an option? Well, we all know the answer to that. I suspect some racist programmer was able to slip that by while purposefully excluding Israel as an option. That’s insulting and Facebook should be held accountable."

    Marvel Studio News has reported that Facebook has banned a group that attempted to sabotage the fan review scores of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and also promised to do the same thing to Marvel’s upcoming Black Panther. The group’s Facebook page was named “Down With Disney’s Treatment of Franchises and its Fanboys,” and it had created an event to post low review scores on the fan review section of the Rotten Tomatoes website. The exact motivations of the group aren’t completely clear, though some trends and theories have cropped up during the course of its actions. According to a...

    When Kathy Griffin released her now-infamous decapitated Donald Trump photo, even her own mother renounced the publicity stunt. “She said, ‘I am not with you on this one, Kathy. You’ve gone too far,'” Griffin recalled to The Hollywood Reporter of her 97-year-old mother’s reaction to the notorious snapshot. “It’s been really hard,” said Griffin’s boyfriend, Randy Bick, adding that his own brother, a former Marine, unfriended him on Facebook after the incident. “It seems like everybody turned.” Despite the reaction from her own loved ones, Griffin, 57, wasn’t convinced the photoshoot was a mistake until pal Rosie O’Donnell reportedly asked,...

    Having been one of the early targets of social media censorship on Facebook, YouTube et al, I have advocated for anti-trust action against these bullying behemoths. It is good to see establishment outlets such as the Wall Street Journal and National Review coming to the same conclusion, or at least asking the same questions. Just this week, Facebook launched its latest of many attacks on my news site, the Geller Report. It labeled my site as "spam" and removed every Geller Report post -- thousands upon thousands of them, going back years – from Facebook. It also blocked any Facebook...

    As you have probably already noticed, Facebook is going through dramatic changes. Now, they are about to roll out massive updates to its newsfeed that will dramatically change the type of content you see Facebook is going to focus on your nexus of family and friends, in addition to a list of what they label “trusted sources.” Those “trusted sources” aren’t based on what you trust, but what they trust. They claim the pages will be based on “diverse and representative” criteria determined by sample pools of Facebook users. But no one – except Facebook itself – knows just what...
