    @ShaulaEvans @RegisteredHere @MimsyWBorogoves @cuckoopapayas @dyfl @facebook I fear the problem is that most users don't care about the company's ethics, don't realize how much money their personal data is worth and how much they're being tracked

    @Yair_Rosenberg @facebook I don’t think silencing and censoring people who say these sort of things will help. In fact, on the contrary, it’ll probably exacerbate the problem. You’re gonna need better arguments and a thicker skin, my friend.

    I am an Anthropology Student @UMich and would offer a full and quite different point of view should it be deemed newsworthy. I also am part of a DNA research team on @facebook that is doing exactly that with DNA-we have found many errors in both Vital Records and the Dawes rolls.

    If @facebook were serious about their problems with fake accounts, they’d give this guy a low 7 figures to start a division independently auditing and evaluating accounts.

    @ShaulaEvans @MimsyWBorogoves @cuckoopapayas @dyfl @facebook There are many potential "Facebook killers" out there. The trouble is that should one of them effectively succeed, it'd be just a matter of time before it morphing into current FB again. Tech is not the problem per se. Mankind is.

  • MLMshyster
    Emma (@MLMshyster) reported

    So @ElleBeauBlog has touched a nerve with the Huns, &, I suspect, been the subject of an organised shut down campaign. Meanwhile some of the scammiest #mlm continue to defraud ppl, make false health claims & bully & intimidate ppl. But that’s OK because @facebook endorses that.

    @MimsyWBorogoves @cuckoopapayas @dyfl @facebook Quick point - better to squat on your account - just delete data and lock it down. Otherwise, you’re open to someone using your name fraudulently. I won’t let my kids go near FB, but I’ll secure their IDs on the platform.

    With all the failures on the #privacy front by @facebook , it is very refreshing to see the entire #Apple company continue to address privacy issues and protect its customers.

    @RealJamesWoods It may be a fake account, but the problem is that @facebook says it is not a violation of their rules, to post that. Well, at least we know where facebook stands on the issue.

  • SiphoKings
    Sipho Kings (@SiphoKings) reported

    @RobForbesDJ @facebook Methinks the owners of many outlets gave over control in these decisions to people who believed Fb would solve all their problems. Desperation - created by generally bad business models - drove all this. Sigh.

    @ShaulaEvans @MimsyWBorogoves @cuckoopapayas @dyfl @facebook This is a pretty flimsy argument because no one had a problem doing these things before Facebook. I joined when it was still restricted to .edu email users, and it was useful for connecting with other researchers, but no one NEEDED it.

  • RegisteredHere
    RegisteredHere (@RegisteredHere) reported

    @joelparrett @MimsyWBorogoves @ShaulaEvans @cuckoopapayas @dyfl @facebook ....the alternative (solid/inruption) model would see ownership of data moving from FB to individual FB users who would then grant FB temporary access to their data. The problem with that is it runs counter to FB's data broker business model.

    @ShaulaEvans @RegisteredHere @MimsyWBorogoves @cuckoopapayas @dyfl @facebook One issue you'd face with this is that older users only got onto Facebook in mass after it was popular with younger ones. They're not likely candidates to be early adopters.

    @RonitBoseRoy @facebook @RonitBoseRoy Make a new one it's better to re-fix previous one. Facebook hack affected millions of people already, Token stealing, session hijacking are common. @facebook data has been compromise, do something dear, else there will be falling of user graph.

    @SiteNook @djcp @matthewishuman @ShaulaEvans @MimsyWBorogoves @cuckoopapayas @dyfl @facebook @timberners_lee Things change all the time, but there have certainly been periods when open source machines have had problems with accessing and using online content because of the proprietary protections that commercial players use to protect their IP....

    @RegisteredHere @djcp @matthewishuman @ShaulaEvans @MimsyWBorogoves @cuckoopapayas @dyfl @facebook @timberners_lee BONUS - editable posts eliminate the typo problems we have here on Twitter. Of course, threads become mallable as you can rewrite something later making threads into nonsense. Abuse is possible. But it's only social media, there don't need to be rules, but there could be.

    RegisteredHere (@RegisteredHere) reported

    @SiteNook @djcp @matthewishuman @ShaulaEvans @MimsyWBorogoves @cuckoopapayas @dyfl @facebook @timberners_lee Yes, agreed, and interestingly, if commercial internet companies no longer control people's data, then many of the issues relating to copyright and DRM would disappear, since many of the issues at the moment relate to the use of proprietary standards to protect commercial IP.

    @jklightside Good for him. I heard of a company that turned down a lucrative contract to develop a weapon to blind people. Didn't fit with their ethics. Or, why engineers need to take courses in humanities, especially history and ethics. Otherwise we end up with @Twitter and @facebook
