    I have friends from both sides of the aisle on FB. I generally ignore their political posts, especially during elections. But I have noticed a new trend in the past week or two. The lower Hillary is in the polls, the louder, the more derisive, and the more often they are posting about Trump and his supporters. I don't think that we are even close to seeing the meltdown of Hillary's minions.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 9/23/2016 | Paul Bedard
    Top executives at social media giants Facebook and Yahoo have helped "bundle" $113 million for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to newly released campaign donations. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg were part of over 1,100 "elite bundlers" that also include actor Ben Affleck and the chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China. The analysis done by the Center for Public Integrity also found several lawmakers on the Clinton bundler list. CPI's Michael Beckel explained, "A 'bundler' is someone who collects checks from friends or associates and gives them to the...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CNNMoney) — Donald Trump fans are learning that fake names don’t fly on Facebook. The social media company is forcing users who include “deplorable” in their profile names to change them because it violates Facebook’s Terms of Service. Some Trump supporters have embraced the moniker after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton said “you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.” Clinton’s comments last week criticized Trump and his supporters for their bigotry, specifically citing racism, sexism, and homophobia. Facebook’s community standards require people to use their real names, and if Facebook suspects...

  • Facebook reinstates Vietnam photo after outcry over censorship

    Facebook on Friday reinstated a Vietnam War-era photo of a naked girl fleeing a napalm attack, after a public outcry over its removal of the image including harsh criticism from Norway's prime minister. In a clash between a democratically elected leader and the social media giant over how to patrol the Internet,Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg said Facebook was editing history by erasing images of the iconic 1972 "Napalm Girl" photograph, which showed children running from a bombed village. The company initially said the photo violated its Community Standards barring child nudity on the site.

    A co-founder of Facebook is donating $20 million of his fortune to Democratic coffers in a late and likely consequential move to help defeat Republican candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. The funds are a surprising infusion of cash from an individual who has never before been active in politics. Dustin Moskovitz, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur with a net worth of more than $10 billion, announced early Friday that he and his wife would make a historically large donation to a half-dozen Democratic groups, including those backing Hillary Clinton. The donations, once issued, will make Moskovitz the third...

    The space rocket which exploded before takeoff yesterday (1 September) was carrying a satellite Facebook intended to use to connect sub-Saharan Africa to the Internet. Whilst many critics have had doubts about the plan of founder Mark Zuckerberg to provide web access to the developing world, the destruction of the SpaceX rocket and its cargo will set the plan back many months, if not years. The explosion of the Falcon 9 rocket on the launchpad at NASA’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida also saw the destruction of its AMOS-6 satellite, manufactured by an Israeli firm, but leased to...

From Fusion: While some of these incredibly accurate friend suggestions are amusing, others are alarming, such as this story from Lisa*, a psychiatrist who is an infrequent Facebook user, mostly signing in to RSVP for events. Last summer, she noticed that the social network had started recommending her patients as friends—and she had no idea why. “I haven’t shared my email or phone contacts with Facebook,” she told me over the phone.

    Facebook has fired its Trending News team, responsible for curating the social media network’s “Trending News” list, after Breitbart Tech began to reveal their progressive biases last month. The team is set to be replaced by a team of engineers managing an algorithm. Facebook’s Trending News feature is supposed to present users with the most popular news topics being discussed across the platform. But a Gizmodo exposé in May revealed that Trending News operated much like a traditional newsroom, with a team of “curators” selecting stories they considered newsworthy. It was later revealed that the team artificially injected stories that...

    Davidson said advertisers and political campaigns can also search and sort based on demographics and geography. In searching the city of Seattle, for example, Facebook estimates a potential reach of more than 800,000 likely, liberal leaning individuals, compared to more than 50,000 likely conservatives. Davidson explained campaigns are primarily focused on targeting “persuadable voters,” who are likely to be found in the moderate or basic liberal or conservative groupings, as opposed to the extreme categories on either side. Targeting can then be further narrowed based on profile information such as age, gender, even estimated income and lifestyle. “If you have...

    In today’s public policy arena, winning ideas rarely are decided by sound logic, accurate facts, or even by the most votes. Instead, content filters and algorithms, meticulously engineered by social media companies like Facebook and Twitter, intentionally steer public debate in the direction of their owners’ personal politics; and, not coincidentally, toward the politics of their liberal friends in Washington and Sacramento.For starters, consider Facebook – the Big Daddy of social media. There have been numerous reports of Facebook’s algorithm taking down popular pages of pro-gun organizations. But even this example of the “new censorship” pales when viewed in the...

    It was a rough morning for U.S. attorneys arguing the federal government’s case against Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy and six other defendants accused of conspiring to occupy an Oregon wildlife refuge. A visibly frustrated Judge Anna Brown struck from the record a previous ruling that effectively allowed evidence from defendants’ Facebook accounts into next month’s trial. Despite calling an assistant U.S. attorney, two legal assistants and an FBI agent as witnesses, prosecutors weren’t able to explain to the court how protected information from 11 Facebook accounts used by defendants ended up being shared as part of discovery. Judge Brown ordered...

Following a vote to renew the nuclear submarines which passed through Parliament last week, those serving say that a scheme designed to attract new blood has faltered. And a senior source says this is down to the fact that "you cannot Facebook your friends".

Take a look at what some of Ted Cruz’s own supporters posted on HIS Facebook page after he committed political suicide like a childish sore loser.

    The National Security Agency paid millions of dollars to cover the costs of major internet companies involved in the Prism surveillance program after a court ruled that some of the agency's activities were unconstitutional, according to top-secret material passed to the Guardian.

In some ways, Thiel’s support for Trump makes a lot of sense. Both are billionaires who like to disrupt the sh*t out of the status...
