  • TallmanIV Tallman Trask (@TallmanIV) reported

    I've spent a lot of time (like A LOT a lot) trying to get @facebook to enforce their own policies, deal with the consequences of policies, and write better policies. For a long time, their gun policies were terrible, than they got better, than worse (and Facebook didn't get it).

    He can also sling his lies pretty good @Facebook has done nothing to curb Misinformation , I believe the CRTC should actively BAN facebook for altering our democracy with prior knowledge of intent , Real simple just shut it down and watch how fast they comply . #cdnpoli

    @VICE .@facebook @fbnewsroom Ok FB, I think it's time to shut this down. It was a joke, and it was hilaaaaaaaarious. But real people in a real place are having to worry about how the infrastructures of their county can handle this - if it happens. Not "real" people. Real people

  • KushLiveNow Kushan Liyanarachchi 🛡️ (@KushLiveNow) reported

    @geekinkuwait @facebook @mozilla @firefox @brave That is also part of the problem. Few years ago, I started migrating from Google services for several reasons. I work with multiple enterprise level clients and entities if breached my companies would go bankrupt or worse.

    Day 2, nw u can imagine hw fast reaction on issue. Generally online presence on @Twitter @facebook @instagram of any company or gov. offices or organisation is 4 resolving the query online as it is visible on social media. Bt I think @jansunwai_up online presence is 4 advertising

    @EinsteinsAttic @futureidentity @facebook A long time ago I presented a talk for some former colleagues on privacy settings and compared the situation to the control panel on the space shuttle, but where you also have to be able to EVA to really fix something.

  • Michael49678106 Deplorable Tillman (@Michael49678106) reported

    It’s because @facebook and @Twitter can get away with these things because they’re not listed as a publisher... Yet... Soon they will... Then they will be open to lawsuits that they deserve. Then @Google will be broken up like Ma Bell back in the day.

  • SInglaNIhARikA Niharika Singla (@SInglaNIhARikA) reported

  • hilary_pearson_ Hilary Pearson (@hilary_pearson_) reported

    @amyadamsMP @nzherald @paulabennettmp This is an issue for @facebook too... page moderation tools are appalling - it’s just another example of social media making the world a shittier place. I don’t for a moment believe they can’t automagically flag and hide all problematic comments.

    @facebook Hello, I wanted to report a problem that happened to me which is that I temporarily blocked the Facebook account by a simple comment and I find it unfair to see how other people do worse things and they are not called attention.

  • KyuuEturautti Kyuu Eturautti (@KyuuEturautti) reported

    @husu78 @Twitter @facebook The problem would be information security, sir. We've already lost too much of our privacy to companies that leak it to the lowest bidder. I don't disagree with your view on social media problems, but I suggest other ideas. Let's show a good example. That can do some good.
