This is what a Facebook election security charm offensive looks like

Четверг, 19 Октября 2018 г. 02:37 (ссылка)

Facebook is working very hard right now to prove it can be trusted to protect users from malicious fake news, political disinformation, and cyberattacks intended to throw the 2018 midterms. What Facebook is not doing: providing details.

The social media giant invited reporters yesterday into what they're calling their “war room” (ugh), a new workspace at Facebook's Menlo Park headquarters in which data scientists, threat investigators, and other experts from 20 Facebook teams are apparently very hard at work protecting America.

Why so few specifics on what, if anything, they're doing to address the fact that their platform has been successfully weaponized against elections, again and again?

Why so few details, and so much emphasis on the optics?

Oh right. Because Facebook.

From the Guardian's Sam Levin:

The press briefing provided minimal new information about Facebook’s specific strategies and impacts when it comes to combating foreign interference and false news. The corporation has been eager to publicly demonstrate that it is taking abuses on its platforms seriously amid an avalanche of scandals. That includes a vast data breach, government inquiries across the globe, new ad fraud allegations, and the continuing stream of viral fake content and hate speech.

The stakes are high as the US approaches critical midterm elections in November and the 2020 presidential race. WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messaging service, has also been linked to widespread false news stories that have led to violence and mob lynchings in India. The platform has further struggled to mitigate harms it is causing in Myanmar, where an explosion of social media hate speech has contributed to violence and genocide.

Instagram's bullying, stalking, and harassment crisis

Четверг, 19 Октября 2018 г. 01:17 (ссылка)

Twitter gets well-deserved attention for online harassment, but know who else has a huge problem there? Instagram. Big time.

“Instagram Has a Massive Harassment Problem,’ as Taylor Lorenz reports for the Atlantic.

“The social network cast itself as the internet’s kindest place. But users argue harassment is rampant, and employees say efforts to stem it aren’t funded well or prioritized.”

Says one unfortunate and prominent young IG personality, “Instagram is the No. 1 platform that I experience hate on.” The piece goes into the numbers, it's a big thing that affects a lot of young people. One gets the impression that harassment wasn't something Instagram's designers considered, or hired professionals qualified to help them consider. And that design oversight is biting them and all their users in the butt.


Last week, Instagram announced a set of new features to limit bullying and “spread kindness,” including comment filters on live videos, a “kindness camera effect to spread positivity,” and the deployment of machine-learning technology to better detect bullying in photos.

When approached for comment, a Facebook spokesperson referred me to Instagram’s communications team. Instagram declined to speak on the record about many of the particulars of its anti-harassment efforts.

“We want people to come to Instagram and have a positive experience—to make friends, find interests, and do all the things that make Instagram such a positive place,” Newton wrote in an October statement to The Atlantic. “Bullying and harassment are completely counter to the experience we work to create.

Новый гаджет Facebook следит за пользователями

Четверг, 18 Октября 2018 г. 11:12 (ссылка)

Новый гаджет Facebook следит за пользователямиВо время презентации своего смарт-экрана Facebook Portal, компания акцентировала внимание на его защищенности. Как оказалось, новый гаджет все же предоставляет Facebook возможности для сбора информации о пользователях.

У смарт-экрана присутствует функционал для сбора данных о том, с кем общается человек и какие приложения использует. В перспективе, это может быть использовано для продажи таргетированной рекламы.

Важно отметить, что ранее представители социальной сети заявляли, что не будут использовать полученные данные для рекламных целей.

Представители Facebook также уточнили, что, поскольку возможности голосовых звонков основаны на базе Messenger, то собирают ту же информацию, что и приложение.

Кроме того, пресс-служба компании в ответе на запрос журналистов признала, что информация по типу и продолжительности звонков, а также об использовании приложений, может использоваться в рекламных целях.

Facebook lied: its in-home "Portal" cameras will collect your data

Среда, 17 Октября 2018 г. 19:44 (ссылка)

Facebook Portal is a camera that is supposed to follow you around your house while you videoconference; the product launch was repeatedly delayed because of the company's string of horrific privacy breaches; when the company finally pulled the trigger on the launch it was at pains to insist that Portal would not collect your data while you used it.

That was a lie.

Portal will spy on you continuously while you use it and that data will be used to target Facebook ads at you later.

But Facebook has since reached out to change its answer: Portal doesn’t have ads, but data about who you call and data about which apps you use on Portal can be used to target you with ads on other Facebook-owned properties.

“Portal voice calling is built on the Messenger infrastructure, so when you make a video call on Portal, we collect the same types of information (i.e. usage data such as length of calls, frequency of calls) that we collect on other Messenger-enabled devices. We may use this information to inform the ads we show you across our platforms. Other general usage data, such as aggregate usage of apps, etc., may also feed into the information that we use to serve ads,” a spokesperson said in an email to Recode.

Facebook: Hackers got (very) personal data from 29M users. FIND OUT if your info was breached.

Пятница, 13 Октября 2018 г. 00:35 (ссылка)

The good news: Facebook downgrades the number of accounts hit in the breach they disclosed two weeks ago to 29 million, down from 50 million. The bad news: Uh, that's still a LOT. And if you were one of those 29 million Facebook users, A LOT of your intimate personal data was stolen.

Facebook disclosed this in a corporate blog post, “An Update on the Security Issue,” with more details on the massive privacy breach.

Facebook Product Management VP Guy Rosen says:

People can check whether they were affected by visiting our Help Center. In the coming days, we’ll send customized messages to the 30 million people affected to explain what information the attackers might have accessed, as well as steps they can take to help protect themselves, including from suspicious emails, text messages, or calls.

This attack did not include Messenger, Messenger Kids, Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus, Workplace, Pages, payments, third-party apps, or advertising or developer accounts.

Naturally they published at the end of the day on Friday, when all bad news gets dumped to minimize impact.

“For 15 million people, attackers accessed two sets of information — name and contact details (phone number, email, or both, depending on what people had on their profiles),” writes Rosen in the post.

“For 14 million people, the attackers accessed the same two sets of information, as well as other details people had on their profiles.”

Bu “other details,” he means your location, gender, relationship status, your recent search and personal physical location data. Read the rest
