One former Facebook executive said, “We have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.”

Is Social Media Destroying Humanity on Purpose?

You may not be on social media yourself, but chances are your friends and family are. Some of us are on there for work purposes and some so we can keep in touch with loved ones who live far away. There are valid reasons we have accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. But things are getting ugly out there in Internetland and it begs the question of whether social media is destroying humanity.

And even worse, is social media destroying humanity on purpose, because it was engineered to do so?

You’d have to live under a rock big enough to block all internet communications to not have heard about the privacy scandals that have plagued Facebook recently. From Cambridge Analytica mining user’s data to Facebook’s massive profits from your data, it’s been all over the news. Zuckerberg even had to testify to Congress about it for 10 hours recently, in the end apologizing for his part in the scandal.

But your lack of privacy may be just a drop in the bucket.

DOD Blatantly Admits on Twitter it Works With Hollywood to Sell You War Propaganda | The Daily Bell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 9, 2018

The farmers at the pentagram have been planting for a long time.

CBS’ 60 minutes…don’t get me started!

By John Vibes

While this is a fact that has been documented for many years, it is still largely overlooked by mainstream media sources, who insist that this idea is nothing more than a conspiracy theory. In the post, it was plainly admitted that the agency “works with Hollywood to ensure the military is portrayed correctly in films.”… Read the rest of this entry »

Kim Dotcom proposes Twitter alternative over ‘censorship of Seth Rich tweets’ — RT World News

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 5, 2018

Computers, Tweets and ‘that sort of thing’ are how Dotcom makes his living. So I can excuse him from telling us the the best solution to Twitter’s tactics…forget social media.

Another confirmation of whom social media works for.

Kim Dotcom has called on Twitter to stop ‘censoring’ tweets, saying he’ll create an alternative to the social network if it continues. Dotcom told RT he believes Twitter is targeting tweets about late DNC staffer Seth Rich.

Tweeting early Saturday, the Megaupload founder urged Twitter’s Jack Dorsey to “stop messing with our free speech” and warning that if Dotcom creates an alternative platform, “Twitter could be toast within a year”.

UNDERCOVER VIDEO: Twitter Engineers To “Ban a Way of Talking” Through “Shadow Banning,” Algorithms to Censor Opposing Political Opinions

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 11, 2018

It seems to me if you are on Twitter, Facebook, Google et al, you are an enabler, part of the problem.

Steven Pierre, Twitter engineer explains “shadow banning,” says “it’s going to ban a way of talking”
Former Twitter software engineer Abhinav Vadrevu on shadow banning: “they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it”
Former Twitter Content Review Agent Mo Norai explains banning process: “if it was a pro-Trump thing and I’m anti-Trump… I banned his whole account… it’s at your discretion”
When asked if banning process was an unwritten rule, Norai adds “Very. A lot of unwritten rules… It was never written it was more said”
Olinda Hassan, Policy Manager for Twitter Trust and Safety explains, “we’re trying to ‘down rank’… shitty people to not show up,” “we’re working [that] on right now”
“Shadow banning” to be used to stealthily target political views- former Twitter engineer says, “that’s a thing”
Censorship of certain political viewpoints to be automated via “machine learning” according to Twitter software engineer
Parnay Singh, Twitter Direct Messaging Engineer, on machine learning algorithms, “you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck…” “the majority of it are for Republicans”

Full on censorship! Twitter removes all RT and Sputnik ads from platform

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 27, 2017

Who do they think they are?! Facebook!

In a blog post this morning, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey explains why Twitter has decided to off-board advertising (effectively ban) from RT and Sputnik from advertising on the social network.

It’s a weak move that shows Jack and his Twitter birdie are merely another extension of the Deep State… Read the rest of this entry »

How will Facebook, Google and Twitter define the Hate they plan to censor? | Fox News

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 23, 2017

The list seems endless. Virtually any belief opposed by the radical left is branded “hatred” and that belief spoken becomes “hate speech.” The goal is to silence the conservative world view through censorship, period. The fringe will use every means available to pressure these online giants to follow suit. Will Facebook, Google, Twitter and Microsoft comply?
If you are really concerned about censorship ( and industrial scale data mining) just bail out of FB, google, MS etc. 

Find or create something better. Better yet get rid. We managed a long time without them. I believe those, particularly young people, who broadcast every detail of their lives will regret the future that is in store.

Mr. Bozell presented a caring Mark Zuckerberg. This is the same MZ that conspired with Angela Merkel to censor anti-immigrant Facebook news. 

Is MZ the next George Soros?

To paraphrase a former president ‘it depends on what your definition of censorship is’. 

Be seeing you

Facebook And Twit-ter Sell Out Their Subscribers Again

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 23, 2016

The last post described the all too common pot/kettle situation with the press. Those screaming ‘fake news’ are the ones causing the problem.

Facebook feigns shock all the while giving China custom censorship tools in exchange for access. Censored news is fake news no matter what weasel words are used to justify it.

Now we learn:

Facebook has restricted content in other countries before, such as Pakistan, Russia and Turkey, in keeping with the typical practice of American internet companies that generally comply with government requests to block certain content after it is posted.

But the new feature takes that a step further by preventing content from appearing in feeds in China in the first place. Read the rest of this entry »

Evernote, Other Handy Stuff and a Twitter Warning

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 23, 2012

Quite often I run across interesting articles that I don’t print nor pdf for whatever reason. Evernote is an easy way to save text, URLs, photos, notes. Just hit highlight what you want to save and hit the Evernote elephant icon on the toolbar and that’s it. One can create directories for organization plus all the other usual amenities. No more aggravation from not being able to find what you run across an hour ago nor clogging up your browser bookmarks. Next time CNN or the military accidentally tells the truth you will have the info saved on Evernote by the time the offending material gets pulled from the web. Read the rest of this entry »
