‘Oops,’ Said Faceberg, Part Infinity

So lifelike.

Imma running out of time this morning, but luckily the MIT email thingie gives us a list of TODAY’s transgressions from Facebook you can click on at your leisure:

1 Facebook was told that drug cartels were using it to recruit
But when an employee flagged the issue, it did nothing. (WSJ)
+ Facebook keeps researching its harms—and then burying the results. (WaPo)
+ What does Facebook mean when it says it wants internet regulation? (The Markup)
+ It says it’s going to crack down on coordinated gangs, honest. (NBC)
+ Social media is attention alcohol. (Atlantic)

  1. Also why Facebook keeps researching and then burying the results? Same reason the cigarette companies buried their own cancer link research and why Exxon buried their own climate change data in the 70’s. To prepare for the lawsuits.

    PZMyers is finally abandoning Faceplant. About damned time, since he’s been trashing Fuckerberg for a long time.

    I’m glad that my blogging betters (finally!) have come around to my position from, oh, about 2008 (long time readers know I was on it for about 6 months before I had my first stalker show up at my office). I thought the thing was privacy invasion then, and that was in its Heyday.

    Facebook is a net negative for our country. Break it up, erase the source code, salt the earth.
