So lifelike.

Well, this ought to get Possum Hollar’s panties in a knot:

Facebook Helped U.S. Identify Capitol Rioters From Photos

(Bloomberg) — Facebook Inc. has been “helping” law enforcement identify people who posted photos of themselves at the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, “even after the attack was over,” said Monika Bickert, the company’s head of global policy management.

Bickert said Facebook removed posts from several militant groups in the lead-up to the violent event and continued to remove content celebrating the riots and planning future violence after Jan. 6. The company said it didn’t use its facial recognition software to help the government identify people, but passed along data in response to requests.

Strangely good news from Facebook, innit? But of course short-lived. See if you can spot the big lie!

In the days following the attack, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said the riots were planned mostly on other social media platforms. But reporters quickly found evidence that Facebook and Instagram, which the company also owns, were mainstream tools for coordinating and spreading the word about the events.

OK, that was easy. Anytime you read anything Sandberg says, you know it is a lie, usually big, and usually easily fact checked.

    Not even Zacebook/Fuckerberg would dare to flat-out refuse to help law enforcement identify violent criminals who are still at large. Frankly it’s odd that they weren’t using that facial recognition software to help, since they have it. They seem to be doing only the bare minimum. They’re really asking to get broken up now that the Democrats are back in office.

      There weren’t enough black people in the crowd for their facial recognition software to work correctly. It just kept returning ‘No offenders found’ whenever they tried it.
