“Dumb F–ks”: Julian Assange Reminds Us What Mark Zuckerberg Thinks Of Facebook Users:

Zuckerberg Scrambles To Calm Facebook Employees

Zuckerberg Scrambles To Calm Facebook Employees:

Following a horrendous week of damage control through a choreographed game of MSM softball, Mark Zuckerberg is now trying to calm down Facebook employees in the wake of a massive data harvesting scandal.

A March 18 exposé by The Guardian detailing how 28-year-old programmer Christopher Wylie “made Steve Bannon’s psychological warfare tool” missed its intended Trump-linked target and landed squarely on Facebook’s doorstep, after revelations that Facebook’s Orwellian data collection combined with sloppy oversight of what apps and their creators do with your data has resulted in disturbing violations of privacy.

What’s more – Facebook was helping the Obama Campaign target voters using harvested data, similar to what Cambridge Analytica was doing. Obama’s former campaign director admitted over Twitter that Facebook not only knew of the campaign’s data harvesting to “suck out the whole social graph,” but that they “didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing.”

The Latest: Zuckerberg says it’s time to regulate tech firms

The Latest: Zuckerberg says it’s time to regulate tech firms:

NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on the alleged use of Facebook data to influence the U.S. presidential election (all times local): 10:20 p.m. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says he believes it’s time to impose more regulations on technology companies as they play an increasingly important role in the world. But he isn’t spelling what kind of rules he would support beyond requiring clear disclosure about who is paying for online ads.

Zuckerberg told CNN in an interview late Wednesday that it no longer is a question whether Facebook and other large tech companies should be more closely regulated. Instead, he says lawmakers need to work with companies to figure out what regulations make the most sense.

Facebook Announces It Will Use A.I. To Scan Your Thoughts “To Enhance User Safety”

Facebook Announces It Will Use A.I. To Scan Your Thoughts “To Enhance User Safety”:

A mere few years ago the idea that artificial intelligence (AI) might be used to analyze and report to law enforcement aberrant human behavior on social media and other online platforms was merely the far out premise of dystopian movies such as Minority Report, but now Facebook proudly brags that it will use AI to “save lives” based on behavior and thought pattern recognition. 

What could go wrong?

The latest puff piece in Tech Crunch profiling the apparently innocuous sounding “roll out” of AI (as if a mere modest software update) “to detect suicidal posts before they’re reported” opens with the glowingly optimistic line, “This is software to save lives” – so who could possibly doubt such a wonderful and benign initiative which involves AI evaluating people’s mental health? Tech Crunch’s Josh Cronstine begins:
