    The Hill ^ | 10/21/19 | Maggie Miller and Chris Mills Rodrigo
    Facebook on Monday announced it had taken down networks belonging to Russian and Iranian actors on both Facebook and Instagram, part of a new effort to secure the platforms from foreign interference ahead of the 2020 election. The networks comprised pages and groups on Facebook and Instagram that were “engaging in inauthentic behavior” regarding elections. They were targeting the U.S., North Africa and Latin America. Three of the networks were Iranian, while one was Russian. Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook’s head of cybersecurity policy, told reporters that the Russian network had the “hallmarks of a well-resourced operation” with potential links to the...
  • Facebook Shows Bias In Blocking Conservative Account From Posting

    Resistance Feed ^ | October 15, 2019 | Rhett October
    Facebook blocked the account of ResistanceFeed.com from posting links on October 15 and said that the ban would last until October 22. The link that Resistance Feed had posted on on its page was about the footage that ABC had posted claiming that it was video from the Middle East from an attack on the Kurds. ABC retracted the story, admitting that the video footage was not from the Middle East and not of the Kurds and/or Turks but rather a video of an explosion in the United States in Kentucky from 2017. So Resistance Feed wasn't posting an unsupported...
  • Advice on opening a Facebook account

    I've managed to live without Facebook and Twitter. However, we're in a rural area and apparently Facebook Marketplace is the place to go for local classifieds for buying/selling and for offering/finding services. I need someone to haul some scrap metal off our property and have hit a brick wall trying to find someone through my small network of contacts (I'm at a new job at month 4). So I'm reluctantly considering opening a Facebook account, if only because the site's popups make it virtually unusable without one. I've also noticed a lot of local businesses don't have web sites in...

    SNIP Zuckerberg in recent weeks has made a flurry of public and private appearances to make the case for his company and stave off anger from policymakers on both sides of the aisle. From livestreaming a Q&A with Facebook staff to meeting with GOP lawmakers and conservative pundits, Zuckerberg has been making the rounds, a sharp break from his company's normal strategy of deploying other high-level executives in moments of crisis. BIG SNIP But the meetings with conservatives have drawn criticism from some quarters. “They’ve obviously proven very sensitive to conservative criticism and so I think it’s a part of...
  • Businesses Sucking Up To Government

    Townhall.com ^ | October 20, 2019 | Derek Hunter
    Whether you like them or not, a lot of big businesses are sucking up to government in ways couched as being principled, but are really just attempts to make sure they maintain their dominance. Preemptively addressing an issue is one way, an effective way, to keep the government from crushing your business, but it’s also a way some companies are hoping to fend off further scrutiny from legislators. This week we saw two examples: one from Facebook and the other from Juul.In one case, Facebook is pretending to be pro-free speech, and in the other, Juul is pretending to care...
  • Mom of children found hanging told 911 dispatcher son was bullied, 'didn't want to go alone'

    The mother of an 8-year-old boy who was found hanging in a Pennsylvania basement last month alongside his 4-year-old sister told a 911 dispatcher he had been bullied and "had made threats of doing this but didn't want to go alone." The dispatcher further quoted the mother as saying that sadly the boy, Connor Snyder, “may be the aggressor,” Fox 10 Philadelphia reported Thursday. Lisa Snyder, 36, called 911 after reporting finding Connor and her daughter Brinley hanging from the basement rafters of their home in Albany Township with a dog leash on Sept. 23. Connor and his sister died...

    THERE are certain actions which are borne out of power politics, while others emerge from ideological fixations. Still yet, some are combinations thereof. Said duality is the driving force behind Chancellor Merkel’s rule – her leadership, for almost 15 years, reflects as much. Not only that, as the head of Germany, the 4th largest economy in the world, the heft she wields across Europe (and beyond) is enormous. SO much so, even socialist-leaning and globalist-driven Zuckerberg (in total control of Facebook, the largest social media site on the planet and deemed the world’s most dangerous censor – who is more...

    I just attempted to log into my Facebook account. Facebook is telling me that in order to access my account, I must provide them a Photo-ID. . .not just a photo, either. . .a photo ID. Of course, no way I'm doing that. My question is, has anyone else seen this? Is Facebook attempting to block conservatives with feigned security concerns and inordinate security requirements? Or, has someone hacked into Facebook or is this a phising hack attempt on me? Very strange. It only happens when I attempt to login to Facebook.

    Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg rejects calls for Trump's social media to be shut down in exclusive interview Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has responded to calls for social media companies to curtail President Trump's activities on platforms such as Twitter. "My belief is that in a democracy, I don’t think that we want private companies censoring politicians in the news," Zuckerberg told Dana Perino in an exclusive interview airing Friday on "The Daily Briefing." During the interview, Perino asked Zuckerberg about Sen. Kamala Harris' demand that Twitter shut down Trump's account, which the president uses regularly to share his views on a...

    SAN FRANCISCO, Sept 18 — While Facebook is known to be developing its own set of augmented-reality glasses, CNBC reported yesterday that the company has partnered with Luxottica, the owner of eyewear brands including Ray-Ban, Oakley, and Coach, to launch a pair of smart specs “designed to replace smartphones” as early as 2023. Despite Snap’s Spectacles smart glasses not being notably popular among consumers, the brand’s parent company Facebook is still working hard to make such a device successful. While the company confirmed last year that it was developing its own in-house AR glasses, CNBC reported this week that it...

    Massachusetts senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren continued her campaign against Facebook on Sunday, one day after she posted false advertisements to Facebook on Saturday to see if she could prove to voters that the social media platform values profit over facts. "Facebook holds incredible power to affect elections and our national debate. They’ve decided to let political figures lie to you -- even about Facebook itself -- while their executives and their investors get even richer off the ads containing these lies," Warren wrote in a series of Twitter posts Saturday criticizing Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg.

    The left is trying to steer Facebook into doing more censorship. Sen. Ron Wyden, (D-OR) proclaimed that Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg should face dire consequences for how he has chosen to run the platform. However, he also calls for more censorship of the internet as a whole. Wyden also hammered the First Amendment, saying that “A lot of people don't realize the First Amendment is what creates the biggest opportunity for hate speech.” He then noted by contrast that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act “provides an opportunity to address hate speech without the bad guys going off to...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren's presidential campaign is targeting Facebook's policies for political advertisements with a new ad that purposefully makes the false claim that the company and its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, have endorsed President Trump. Warren and other critics have blasted Facebook in recent days over its refusal to take down a Trump campaign ad that accuses Democratic candidate Joe Biden of corruption without evidence. Facebook has defended allowing the ad to stay on its platform. "Breaking news: Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook just endorsed Donald Trump for re-election," the mock Warren ad states. "You're probably shocked, and you might be thinking,...

Church leaders say they weren't told exactly what led Facebook to ban the Christian Liberty Press page, but they speculate it has to do with expressing their Christian views.

    U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign sent letters over the last week to Facebook Inc, Twitter Inc and Alphabet Inc’s Google, asking them to take down a social media ad from President Donald Trump which the Biden campaign said contained false claims. But the three companies said that the ad, which alleges that the former vice president promised Ukraine $1 billion if the country fired a prosecutor investigating a company linked to his son Hunter, did not violate their site rules. Trump has repeatedly made allegations, without evidence, that Biden engaged in improper dealings in Ukraine.

    About 40 state attorneys general will participate in an antitrust investigation of Facebook led by New York Attorney General Letitia James (D), The Washington Post reported on Monday, citing three people familiar with the matter. In September, James had announced an investigation with seven other states and the District of Columbia into whether the social media giant has “endangered consumer data, reduced the quality of consumers’ choices, or increased the price of advertising.” The three people who spoke to the Post said the larger inquiry is still confidential, and that New York could enlist further states before the probe is...

    If you give a flight attendant a candy bar, you'll likely score a free drink, but for one Southwest passenger, even a king-sized Snickers probably wouldn't have earned him a complementary whiskey soda. A Southwest flight attendant who recently noticed a passenger wearing a Trump shirt vented her frustrations on social media. The shirt read "Trump 45" and "Suck it up Buttercup." "Someone did NOT get my most Positively Outrageous Service today on my flight ... #notgoingtosuckitup #dumpTrump #eeew," wrote the flight attendant.

    Ever since I began my research on birth control side effects and health consequences for my book In the Name of the Pill, I have been shocked to learn how many women have not been properly warned about the real risks involved with taking factory-made steroids. A colleague of mine who I discuss these issues with said he often gets into discussions with women about these health risks, and I noticed that many of the conversations he was telling me about had happened online. So I couldn’t help but ask him, “How are you meeting so many women online?” He...
