Facebook Wants To Know Who Or What You Sleep With

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 25, 2018

This Facebook. This is Zuckerberg. It should surprise no one.

“Confusing” the public since 2004.

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/25/facebook-asks-sexual-preferences/

Facebook is reportedly asking some users who or what they are sleeping with, and it is not exactly clear why.

The social media company often asks people to provide more basic personal information to be included on their respective profiles, like gender, birthday, former schools, work history, email addresses, and even religion if one feels so inclined. But it also apparently asks some users to finish the statement “I usually sleep with…” in order “to help friends get to know you,” according to Business Insider. Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook developing ‘Portal’ gadget which will let it put microphones and cameras in people’s homes

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 11, 2018

The fact that Zuckerberg expects these things to sell tells you the sheeple population won’t be going down anytime soon. This is sad.

Building 8 is a top secret Facebook division which used to be headed up by Regina E. Dugan, former boss of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is dedicated to military research. Last year, Facebook admitted its own research wing was working on technology which can read people’s minds at 100 words per minute.

In George Orwell’s 1984, the oppressive rulers of Oceania use devices called telescreens to closely monitor and repress citizens. Now Facebook looks set to follow in the Party’s footsteps by putting its own firm’s microphones and cameras into people’s homes. The social network is planning to release its first ever piece of consumer hardware which will be called Portal and cost a whopping $499 (£368), a website called Cheddar has claimed.

Ex-Facebook Chief Sean Parker Warns Site Was Built To Exploit People’s Weaknesses – Collective Evolution

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 13, 2017

http://www.collective-evolution.com/2017/11/10/ex-facebook-chief-sean-parker-warns-site-was-built-to-exploit-peoples-weaknesses/

Were  there sinister intentions behind its creation or did all those, if any, creep in after its success?  Was it designed to essentially suck as much of our time away from us as possible? Well, according to former Facebook president, Sean Parker, that’s exactly what it was designed for and continues to do.

Either Parker is a disgruntled ex employee trying to seek revenge on the corporate giant, or he is worried enough about the implications of Facebook as we know it now, and potentially where is headed. I’ll leave it to you to decide after reading some of what he recently announced during an interview with Axios. Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook Now Wants Your Nude Photos | Zero Hedge

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 8, 2017

No dossier is complete without photos.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-06/facebook-now-wants-your-nude-photos

To combat ‘revenge porn’, Facebook is now asking users to send in their nudes, to test a new anti-revenge porn technology.

According to the Daily Mail, sending your nudes to Facebook will stop the so-called ‘revenge porn’ phenomenon:

  • The trial requires users to send naughty pictures to themselves via Facebook Messenger.
  • Ms Grant said: ‘It would be like sending yourself your image in email, but obviously this is a much safer, secure end-to-end way of sending the image without sending it through the ether.’
  • Once the image has been sent, Facebook will then ‘hash’ the image – create a digital fingerprint or link.
  • Ms Grant explained: ‘They’re not storing the image, they’re storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies.
  • ‘So if somebody tried to upload that same image, which would have the same digital footprint or hash value, it will be prevented from being uploaded.’
  • If the technology works , the photo should never appear on Facebook.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/11/no_author/facebook-tells-congress-that-russian-ads-comprised-only-004-of-newsfeed/

On Tuesday, senior executives from the big three tech giants, Google, Facebook and Twitter, appeared before a Senate Judiciary subcommittee chaired by Republican Lindsay Graham and came up with stunning revelations regarding Russia’s election meddling on social media.

Social media giant Facebook said that Russian ads comprised only .004% of the newsfeed during the election.

Democrats were claiming Russia ads on Facebook helped flipped the election away from Hillary to Trump…all .004% of those ads.

Best of all…half of the .004% of the ads were pro-Hillary Read the rest of this entry »

Facebook Tests Its Plan to Kill Off Independent Media

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 25, 2017

http://theantimedia.org/facebook-tests-plan-kill-independent-media/

Written by 

theantimedia.org

Remember when Facebook first offered to pay “media partners” to create video content for its news feed? A lot sure has changed since then… and that was only six months ago. In a development that’s elicited anger among journalists and various content providers, the world’s largest social media company appears to be testing a new content-distribution model that would move it away from an organic, free-for-all to a pay-to-play environment. Predictably, news of the tests prompted howls of rage from the media establishment, which depends on Facebook’s referral traffic for survival. Read the rest of this entry »

Facespook! Social media giant becomes arm of US intel — RT Op-Edge

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 19, 2017

https://www.rt.com/op-edge/407078-facebook-social-media-intelligence-censorship/

Facebook, the world’s top social media platform, is reportedly seeking to hire hundreds of employees with US national security clearance licenses.

As Bloomberg reports: “Workers with such [national security] clearances can access information classified by the US government. Facebook plans to use these people – and their ability to receive government information about potential threats – in the company’s attempt to search more proactively for questionable social media campaigns ahead of elections.”

A Facebook spokesman declined to comment, but the report sounds credible, especially given the context of anti-Russia hysteria. Read the rest of this entry »
