    Rochester, N.Y., resident Herbert Smith wasn’t aware of the controversy he was about to create when he was moved to post a photo of a local bar’s dress code to his Facebook page. But since he took to social media to share the long list of items that can’t be worn inside the Murphy’s Law Irish Pub in his neighborhood, some people are calling out the bar for enforcing a “racist” dress code. While making plans with a friend to meet up at a nearby bar, Smith received a picture of the questionable dress code posted in the front window...

    Free speech social media platform Gab.ai has rebranded as Gab.com and aims to become a tech hub for “liberty-minded tech startups” that wish to avoid connections to leftist Silicon Valley groups. Gab.ai, the free-speech themed social media platform founded by CEO Andrew Torba, has long aimed to act as an alternative to sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Now Gab is rebranding as Gab.com and aims to provide an infrastructure for tech developers that wish to grow their own platforms and products without being forced to go through leftist companies based in Silicon Valley. Andrew Torba spoke to Breitbart News...
  • There are lots of ways social media outlets can bias political debate

    There are lots of ways that social media outlets can bias political debates. We have heard of everything from accounts being closed down to deciding what stories are listed as trending. With Facebook using liberal fact-checking organizations such as ABC News, The Associated Press, FactCheck.org, and Politifact, it guarantees political bias. On Friday, Facebook announced that it was going to start applying this fact checking to photos and videos.
  • What we know about (transgender) Snochia Moseley, alleged shooter at Rite Aid warehouse

    Baltimore Sun ^ | September 20, 2018 | Lillian Reed and Ian Duncan
    Authorities in Harford County were still trying to determine late Thursday why Snochia Moseley opened fire at the Rite Aid warehouse where she had taken a temporary job, killing three employees and fatally wounding herself. Authorities have not identified the victims. [Snip] Authorities and court records identified Moseley as female, as did a Facebook profile in her name. But in Facebook messages Coley shared with The Baltimore Sun, Moseley described herself as transgender, although it was not clear whether Moseley preferred to be addressed using masculine or feminine pronouns. In messages that the friend said were sent in December 2016,...

    Brandon Straka, the founder of the #WalkAway movement has been banned from Facebook for linking to Infowars ahead of being interviewed by the outlet. *snip* Straka’s ban comes as he is planning a #WalkAway march on Washington this October. The movement is for Democrats who are leaving the party over their increasingly ridiculous antics. “I’m devasted right now. #WalkAway Campaign is a grassroots movement. We don’t have corporate sponsors. We don’t have backers. We are raising the money and the awareness for our event ourselves. We use GoFundMe to raise money.

  • Frontpagemag.com’s editor Jamie Glazov banned from Facebook [writing: how to prevent another 911]

    The social media giants don’t seem to be backing away from the exclusion of conservative voices. Instead, the strategy may be to wear us down, continuing a steady stream of bans. When the outrage is blatant, they may back down for a while, but the idea is to get us so used to this that we get tired and eventually accept the fate, when the bans keep happening. This article, titled “9 Steps to Counter Jihad,” is what triggered Facebook’s totally opaque “community standards.” The nine steps: 1. Label the Enemy and Make a Threat Assessment. 2. Scrap “Countering Violent...

    Reason ^ | Robby Soave
    On Wednesday morning, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee to take questions from congressmen who spent most of the hearing demanding that the social media giants comply with U.S. government dictates while eschewing cooperation with any other government judged to be "authoritarian." The senators were particularly concerned about foreign interference in U.S. elections. They wanted the social media companies to take firmer steps to prevent non-citizens from attempting to sway public opinion by creating fake accounts, spreading misinformation, or buying political ads...
  • Donald Trump to be DEPRIVED of 2016 presidential campaign's SECRET weapon in 2020

    DONALD TRUMP will be left without his secret campaign weapon in the 2020 presidential election, as Facebook has announced it will not offer the same support to US President as it did in 2016. The tech-giant declared its change in policy claiming that it will focus on providing support and information to all politicians and campaigns on its website politics.fb.com rather than visiting campaign headquarters. The company’s decision comes after more than a year of controversy over its role in the Trump campaign, with many alleging Facebook gave the American firebrand preferential treatment. In an interview with CBS News' 60...

    I was a Facebook friend of Desmond Ford. To those who are not familiar with him, he was disfellowshipped from the SDA church his disagreeing with the Sanctuary doctrine. The church believes that Christ separately went into the temple in Heaven to individually declare us saved or unsaved. His position something along the lines of that happening at the cross, which I agree with. The whole Jewish system of sacrifice, laid out step by step, was all done at once at the Cross. So, anyways back to my interesting event. We were discussing the ordination of wonen, of which I'm...

    Facebook Inc. FB, +0.59% said Thursday that it would begin to fact-check photos and videos shared to its platform. So far, most of the work done by human fact-checkers on Facebook has been geared toward articles, the company said in a release. Facebook announced Thursday that it would use a machine-learning model to identify potentially inaccurate photo and video content and then send those items to human fact-checkers for review. "Many of our third-party fact-checking partners have expertise evaluating photos and videos and are trained in visual verification techniques, such as reverse image searching and analyzing image metadata, like when...

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised that "this year's efforts to ensure the proper election outcome will be more successful than our 2016 intervention." "In 2016 our security safeguards didn't prevent all nonconforming content from reaching voters." Zuckerburg admitted. "Some anti-Clinton messages weren't detected and blocked. Likewise, some pro-Trump messages still managed to get through. In the intervening two years we have tightened our measures. I am highly confident that we will have the maximum possible positive influence in determining who wins." As an example of the "tightened measures" Zuckerberg pointed out that "we have banned the #WalkAway movement that seeks...

    Facebook and other companies routinely track your online surfing habits to better target ads at you. Two web browsers now want to help you fight back in what's becoming an escalating privacy arms race. New protections in Apple's Safari and Mozilla's Firefox browsers aim to prevent companies from turning "cookie" data files used to store sign-in details and preferences into broader trackers that take note of what you read, watch and research on other sites. (snip) Safari makes these protections automatic in updates coming Tuesday to iPhones and iPads and a week later to Mac computers. Firefox has similar protections...

    While browsers such as Tor might be associated with dark web criminal activity and hackers, there are a growing number of reasons for the average person to think about using a secure browser. In light of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the average consumer has become more conscious of their privacy and the ways in which their data is being used. A secure browser is one way to avoid your data being collected by companies such as Google and Facebook. Another concern driving people to secure browsers is avoiding hacks. Although the nastiest campaigns are aimed at large businesses, the average...

    Let me begin with a statement: if you’re still active on Sundar Pichai-Jack Dorsey-Mark Zuckerberg’s digital ghettos, and by that I mean Google search-engine, YouTube, Twitter or Facebook, after everything that’s happened lately, i.e. all the blatant bias, censorship and all the privacy scandals, instead of migrating to alt-tech platforms (minds, gab, bitchute, real.video, duckduckgo etc), well, we don’t stand a chance in the war with the left. Now, that we’ve cleared that out, today we have more Kafkaesque news for our readers, as Facebook decided to fact check itself into oblivion via artificial intelligence helped by natural (human) stupidity....

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on Thursday that the social network is better equipped to fight potential interference efforts ahead of this year's election than it was in 2016. “In 2016, our election security efforts prepared us for traditional cyberattacks like phishing, malware, and hacking,” he wrote in a blog post. “We identified those and notified the government and those affected. What we didn't expect were foreign actors launching coordinated information operations with networks of fake accounts spreading division and misinformation. “Today, Facebook is better prepared for these kinds of attacks,” he continued. In the lengthy note to users, Zuckerberg...
