FCC Commissioner reacts to blistering Facebook report: Time to 'engage' in Section 230 reform

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr joined "Cavuto: Coast to Coast" Thursday to discuss reports that revealed the damaging consequences from Facebook’s decision-making and the possibility of revisiting Section 230 reform. "I think what this really bombshell reporting exposes is that the so-called self-regulation efforts by social media companies have been little more than a smokescreen," said the FCC Commissioner. "As these reports come out, more and more people are seeing through it," he added.Facebook made headlines earlier this week after the company’s photo-sharing service Instagram was labeled toxic for teenage girls. After researchers tapped by the social giant concluded their findings, the report showed that 32 percent of teen girls who "felt bad about their bodies" said Instagram made the issue worse, according to the Wall Street Journal.FACEBOOK DEFENDS 2018 ALGORITHM CHANGES, BLAMES 'PARTISAN DIVISIONS' ON HISTORY Now in a new blistering report, Facebook’s internal documents show that the changes made to its algorithm in 2018 may have made users more hostile towards one another.   » Read More

Facebook Is Too Secretive. Its Oversight Board Should Change That – The Washington Post

Boards are notorious for group think and spinelessness. In Facebook’s case, a board could make a difference.Documents reported by the Wall Street Journal earlier this week revealed a secret system at Facebook to coddle the posts of politicians and celebrities, as well as internal stats on the full extent of psychological harm that Instagram causes teen girls. Both issues were long suspected. Both are now backed by startling evidence.What they boil down to is this: Facebook, like the oil and tobacco companies of years ago, has been far too secretive about the impact of its products on human life.When U.S. Senators asked Facebook last month about Instagram’s impact on teen mental health, the company did not answer. The reason is likely because its internal stats looked so bad: A third of teenage girls who already felt negatively about their bodies felt worse when they went on Instagram, according to the Journal’s reporting, which cited documents from a person seeking federal whistleblower protection. Facebook has also deflected public questioning of XCheck, the internal system that allowed more than 5 million elite users like celebrities and politicians to skirt Facebook’s content rules.  » Read More

Facebook announced the research program in April at The Web Conference. UCLA is the only University of California campus selected among the 10 winners and 15 finalists out of 134 total proposals from across the globe. Diggavi received a $50,000 award to support his research on a machine learning technique, known as federated learning, which trains an algorithm across distributed edge devices housing local data that could be sensitive and need to be kept private. Specifically, Diggavi’s winning research looks at privacy in personalized learning models. Most personalized technologies require multiple devices to analyze large amounts of data, which can jeopardize individuals’ privacy in the process. Diggavi hopes to find a way to ensure robust protection of sensitive data while also advancing individualized models.

Facebook documents reveal that elite users aren't bound by the rules – MarketWatch

Mark Zuckerberg has publicly said Facebook Inc. FB, -0.58%  allows its more than 3 billion users to speak on equal footing with the elites of politics, culture and journalism, and that its standards of behavior apply to everyone, no matter their status or fame. In private, the company has built a system that has exempted high-profile users from some or all of its rules, according to company documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. The program, known as “cross check” or “XCheck,” was initially intended as a quality-control measure for actions taken against high-profile accounts, including celebrities, politicians and journalists. Today, it shields millions of VIP users from the company’s normal enforcement process, the documents show. Some users are “whitelisted”—rendered immune from enforcement actions—while others are allowed to post rule-violating material pending Facebook employee reviews that often never come. At times, the documents show, XCheck has protected public figures whose posts contain harassment or incitement to violence, violations that would typically lead to sanctions for regular users. In 2019,  » Read More

What The New Facebook Smart Glasses Teach Us About Ourselves – Forbes

Facebook smart glasses Facebook Every moment is fleeting. The time you spend going to dinner with your spouse. A two-week vacation visiting sunny California. The 20 minutes it takes to drive to work, depending on traffic. We won’t ever get that time back, which should make us more intentional. With social media, it’s the opposite. Intentionality is rarely the goal. It’s often diametrically opposed to the business plan, in fact. The goal is to provide an illusion that time is not passing, that when you scroll through your feed, you don’t notice the passage of time. Recently, Facebook released a new product called Ray-Ban Stories. The smart glasses can snap photos and shoot videos, and post them on your feed. You can listen to music or podcasts. Someday, the goggles might show you an augmented reality view of the world, although that is still TBD. For now, the $299 product is remarkably similar to the Snap Spectacles.  The idea with any wearable is to make technology more immediate and accessible without relying on our phones.  » Read More
