Facebook political ad tools are ripe for trolling

Due to some form fields, Facebook has a lot of difficulties.

We talked about the new "money of darkness" on Facebook in recent weeks. Earlier this year, the company began asking advertisers to verify their identity. This is what you need to do by entering the code you receive via postcards.

The issue is that advertisers can post their verified identity on Facebook when they post their ads. Instead, you can type what you want in the freeform field. You can lie on Facebook.

To date, journalists have uncovered several false statements. There was a progressive group that secretly ignored conservatives with a message about universal health care. An anonymous person nearly fled a Democratic candidate in Virginia.

This week's reporters realized that the hacking increased the interest in the stunt and created a genre of false political advertising.

Tuesday William Turton of Vice wrote as the cause of 100 senators in the "paid" field and wrote that his ad was approved anyway. It prompted Cambridge Analytica, a research firm banned by Shona Ghosh of Business Insider to buy political ads "paid" by Facebook's mortal enemies. Stay tuned for tomorrow when you expect Refinery29 to get approval for the ads paid by The 5,000,000,000 users who are responsible for data breaches.

Facebook's position on this matter is that regulating political advertising is a government thing. It is not a technology platform. I agree with this view. Instead of fixing inconsistent rules across platforms, we recommend using one standard that applies to all advertisers.

In The Verge Makena Kelly is sorry. The state of parliamentary efforts to make such a rule.

Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO), a supporter of the House version of the same bill, expressed similar feelings. "Pay-per-view advertising must comply with the same disclosure requirements, regardless of the form of honest advertising I have taken." The Verge "Americans need to know someone who pays for advertising on the Internet as much as they watch on TV or listen on the radio."

Meanwhile, Facebook's "paid" field is not allowed to advertise because it is against the rules of the company. In other words, Facebook is another example of posthumous impression.


How can Congress curb Google and Facebook?

Makena Kelly is reviewing Parliament's new national data plan. Privacy laws that allow you to borrow elements of European general information protection legislation:

Industry leaders and consumer advocacy groups define personal information, whether to prohibit states from strictly regulating their privacy rules . This fight will determine how the US government can suppress predatory privacy practices for the foreseeable future.

"These developments honestly put consumer data privacy issues in front of Congress doors." Last month commerce hearing. "The problem is no longer a question of whether federal law is needed to protect consumer privacy, and Britain and Canada are joining forces to call Mark Zuckerberg for questioning.

On the 27th, the online psychological council commended Mark Zuckerberg for his obsession.Of there is no Zuckerberg, I am willing to memorize every aspect of Facebook on the wrong information and testify if necessary.

MP Damian, UK Collins and Canadian MP Bob Zimmer signed a letter from Facebook chief, Zuckerberg

"Collins and Zimmer understand that every member of Congress is not allowed to use himself," writes Collins and Zimmer. I think we should do it directly through the organization. We thought this responsibility was something you should accept.

Reckless fights for the Trump administration's electoral confrontation

Eric Geller tells the Trump Administration that the Russians are interfering in our elections:

a month after the September 21 meeting The Trump administration has yet to tackle the wrong campaign to shake the US election.The three people who are knowledgeable about this matter have told Polytiko that in the absence of high-level White House coordination, the executive will have the same authority as the FBI, the CIA and Homeland Security.

How Facebook could not build a better Alexa (Or Siri)

Parmy Olson said Facebook has acquired several voice recognition companies to develop voice assistants, . It's heard a lot from former Facebook people: the quarterly review cycle means that people tend to do projects that can be completed within three months to impress managers at the expense of long-term thinking.

Many product managers working on Facebook's voice ambitions added that they did not have a clear understanding of the technology involved. Administrators also tended to change from three to six months as core researchers were attracted to the prestigious FAIR and AML departments. The effect is the same as constantly moving the tree to another place and giving it no opportunity to root and grow. Facebook ultimately lacked a "cohesive team with problems".

Facebook introduced Workplace domains to calm enterprise security threats.

Sal Rodriguez has a nice scoop about his job. You can do better on Facebook. The company has recently moved to another domain called Workplace.com, hoping to close its relationship with a company that has become famous for data privacy issues.

From the Silicon Valley Elite to Social Media Dislikes: Gab

Craig Timberg, Drew Harwell, Elizabeth Dwoskin and Emma Brown Profile Gab founder Andrew Torba

And the crackdown did not suppress the growth of Gad. Two years ago, there were about 800,000 users, but Sanduja was 10,000. The company's employees are all under 30 and have fewer than six, including Torba and his wife, Sanduja.

However, there are indications that the company's leadership has deteriorated due to a serious image of the company. Ekrem Buyukkaya, a developer in Turkey who co-founded Torba and Gab, said in a SEC report last week that "the US media outbreak will lead to the company's chief technology officer (CTO)". Buyukkaya's work is crucial to "future success" I was. Buyukkaya has not responded to your request for a comment.

Gab's CEO says Pittsburgh's suspects do not represent the site. But Jessica Schulberg insisted that Torba's own social media post could explain why white nationalists flocked to the thugs.

With the growth of Gab, Torba has learned from an obscure video about British conspiracy theorist George Soros and ISIS, a Canadian eugenic supporter, who helps refugees come to Europe and " Immigrant "The last troll banned from Lyft and Uber complaining about the driver.

Last December, Nehlen told a dual Israeli American citizen who asked for gunshots to leave the United States because she was faithful only to Israel. Torba reposted Nehlen's tweets on Facebook and often wrote the term "racist"

where Troll ruled freely: Reddit's new history

David Streitfeld We are odd ones Christine Lago rio-Chafkin's new history on Reddig:

Inc. Magazine writer Christine Lagorio-Chafkin tells Reddit about "We Are the Nerds". Co-founders Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian worked extensively. Despite Lagorio-Chafkin's best efforts, Ohanian respects them because they are celebrated with "charismatic" or "charismatic" on pages 47, 158, 214, 223 and 330. They are off as whiny and callow schemers. The sharp of a stick. On the first page, the two graduate schools at the University of Virginia can not figure out what a "kiosk" is.

The title "We Are The Nerds" is not really relevant to the story. The words "we are trolls" were much more meaningful. "I was always kind of [expletive]" Huffman explains early. Lagorio-Chafkin bluntly calls him "the total troll." He was also a genius programmer.


Twitter can easily switch backwards by testing the Home screen button.

Twitter is testing a new button. Move back and forth from ranked feeds to pure chronological feeds. Personally, this point would be useful. Chronologically, you can still use Tweetbot.

After canceling the "Rift 2" overhaul, Oculus will gradually update its flagship VR headset.

Lucas Matney furthers The next flagship VR headset on Facebook says it will only get moderate improvements, said his report on the changes that have contributed to Oak Ruth co-founder Brendan Iribe.

Following the overhaul, the company will release product updates, called the more modest "Rift S", early next year, which is said to slightly upgrade the device's display resolution while removing the external sensor tracking system. Instead, the headset utilizes an integrated "inside out" insight tracking system, which is the heart of Facebook's recently announced Oculus Quest stand-alone headset.

Seven scary stories that can be seen in the light of the screen

All of us telling a ghostly story for Halloween. I set one for deepfakes:

Dana's heart is down. She searched for bombing through social media using a hashtag that seemed to be used by everyone. What she saw was unrecognizable.

All the videos she saw showed others holding a bomb at the rally. Some have shown that the candidate is holding it with a scary detail. Others saw long-time historical figures and pop stars sneaking into the facility and seeing arms with explosives.


Facebook Story Story (19659060) Ben Thompson performs a good job of classifying facts based on spins in Facebook import calls. He created a case in which Newsfeed became an existing product faster than someone expected, and at the same time he tried to make money from his story.

In short, I think the overall story about the transition to story is true. ; The question I'm asking is the extent to which Facebook is following the market and trying to prevent an unexpected drop in traditional Facebook usage. The latter is closer to Occam's razor.

Thank you.

Yesterday I responded to a Halloween costume photo request and sent me a picture of a son dressed in a hacked SuperMicro chip Bloomberg Story.

I was captured by Zillow's ugly mansion.

Katie Notopolous can not stop watching Zillow's terrible $ 10 mansion.

Laughter is a kind of class catharsis, even to people with terrible tastes, even if they have huge purchasing power. Yes, these people are very rich and I am not, but look at the stupid things these rubies have poured millions of dollars into. Sigh! Do you think it is good to laugh at the rich man? What is the joy of the New York Times real estate section ? Of course, perhaps it is snobby. I do not say that the decoration of the house has an amazing taste. I do not. But for me there is a $ 12 million pool with lazy river, replica Statue of Liber, or whimsical swirling marble columns in every room.

I hope to have all of these things someday. However, more people will need to subscribe to the newsletter for this.
