Bookmarked : Fix Facebook by Making It More Like Google+ - The Atlantic

My colleague Adrienne LaFrance has named the fundamental assumption, and danger, of social media megascale: “not just a very large user base, but a tremendous one, unprecedented in size.” Technology platforms such as Facebook assume that they deserve a user base measured in the billions of people—and then excuse their misdeeds by noting that effectively controlling such an unthinkably large population is impossible. But technology users, including Donald Trump and your neighbors, also assume that they can and should taste the spoils of megascale. The more posts, the more followers, the more likes, the more reach, the better. This is how bad information spreads, degrading engagement into calamity the more attention it accrues.

This isn’t a side effect of social media’s misuse, but the expected outcome of its use. As the media scholar Siva Vaidhyanathan puts it, the problem with Facebook is Facebook.

I followed all the tips listed on this page to try to unblock our domain okcinfo.news at @facebook

Let's see how long it will take to even bother with a reply.

Honestly appealing anything done by automated bad corporations like Twitter or Facebook is a deaf game, there is nobody to deal with a platform that is bigger than most governments.

That's how broken the internet is in 2021

unDear @facebook

Our website domain okcinfo.news does NOT go against community standards, let me explain why :
We, OKCinfo are a group of survivors of physical and sexual abuses that enfolded between the 70's and 2000's in a cult inspired by tibetan buddhism.

It took us 20 years to grow, leave the OKC cult, reboot our lives from scratch without the help of our parents or anyone and then find the force to go to Justice in 2016.

We created OKCinfo to denounce sexual abuses, we are part of the wider metoo movement out of religions, in this case tibetan buddhism.

By blocking our entire domain and subdomains, you are directly blocking us from communicating with the community we crafted over the last 5 years of juridical procedures.

You are blocking, the civil parties, not the predators, their website is fine on Facebook it seems, you are blocking the victims of a pedocriminal from finding the means, money among other things, to have lawyers to defend our case.

You are actively helping, abetting, a pedocriminal in his censorship of our Justice initiative.

Our website does not talk about sex, does not show nudity, does not show any of the victims actually, to protect their privacy and their identity.

if there is a post, with a word that goes against you rules, indicate the post, we will rephrase it and you will in return NOT block our entire domain.

You are behaving like 1984 nightmare, you are a corporation that use machine learning and automation to censors victims of a criminal.

You are certainly NOT helping us to connect with anyone, you are blocking us from operating normally.

You are working WITH a pedocriminal that was condemned twice by the belgian justice.

That's what you are doing and perhaps, perhaps, you should actually read this message and do something about it.

Indeed, we are opening a new juridical procedure in France, a new trial, to make sure we stop this pedocriminal, and YOU, , you are blocking us from collecting the money we need to pay our lawyers.

That's what you are doing, each and every single day that goes on with our domain blocked.

Stop being evil !

La terrifiante hégémonie des monopoles | ploum.net

Ceux d'entre vous qui suivent ce blog connaissent mon intérêt pour les problématiques liées aux monopoles de haute technologie (Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc.). Ma fascination pour Monopolized vient du fait que j'ai compris que mon combat se dirigeait contre une simple conséquence anecdotique d'un paradigme beaucoup plus large : la monopolisation.

D'ailleurs, entre nous, pourquoi êtes-vous si nombreux à avoir l'intuition que "la financiarisation" de l'économie est une mauvaise chose alors qu'en soit, la finance voire même le trading ne sont que des échanges économiques entre adultes consentants ? À cause de la monopolisation de cette finance.

Viral Visualizations : How Coronavirus Skeptics Use Orthodox Data Practices to Promote Unorthodox Science Online

Controversial understandings of the coronavirus pandemic have turned data visualizations into a battleground. Defying public health officials, coronavirus skeptics on US social media spent much of 2020 creating data visualizations showing that the government's pandemic response was excessive and that the crisis was over. This paper investigates how pandemic visualizations circulated on social media, and shows that people who mistrust the scientific establishment often deploy the same rhetorics of data-driven decision-making used by experts, but to advocate for radical policy changes. Using a quantitative analysis of how visualizations spread on Twitter and an ethnographic approach to analyzing conversations about COVID data on Facebook, we document an epistemological gap that leads pro- and anti-mask groups to draw drastically different inferences from similar data. Ultimately, we argue that the deployment of COVID data visualizations reflect a deeper sociopolitical rift regarding the place of science in public life.
