Facebook is still interesting to me as an anthropological exercise. I had to start blocking the "high school classmates going MAGA/Blue Lives Matter" crowd for my own sanity, but I'm still friends and mutuals with a sizable sampling of the social climbing hippie set of Southern and Northern California, which is currently being torn apart by the antics of Qanon, JP Sears, and Miki Willis the Plandemic guy

for instance, my latest post from this thread was lifted from a facebook post from a very upsetting individual who is caught up in the "I am an angel of light at the center of a war against the forces of darkness. gaze into my round black empty eyes as I stare into my facetime camera for three minutes to softly and sweetly wail about the censorship of my posts trying to expose the child trafficking" bad trip

fuck this stupid fucking company

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ryanmac/kenosha-militia-facebook-reported-455-times-moderators

In a companywide meeting on Thursday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that a militia page advocating for followers to bring weapons to an upcoming protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, remained on the platform because of “an operational mistake.” The page and an associated event inspired widespread criticism of the company after a 17-year-old suspect allegedly shot and killed two protesters Tuesday night.

The event associated with the Kenosha Guard page, however, was flagged to Facebook at least 455 times after its creation, according to an internal report viewed by BuzzFeed News, and had been cleared by four moderators, all of whom deemed it “non-violating.” The page and event were eventually removed from the platform on Wednesday — several hours after the shooting.

“To put that number into perspective, it made up 66% of all event reports that day,” one Facebook worker wrote in the internal “Violence and Incitement Working Group” to illustrate the number of complaints the company had received about the event.

BuzzFeed News could not verify the content on the militia page or its associated event because they had been removed from the platform. A previous story from the Verge noted that the page had issued a “call to arms” and hosted a number of commenters advocating for violence in Kenosha following the police shooting of 29-year-old Black man Jacob Blake.

A Facebook spokesperson declined to comment.

The internal report seen by BuzzFeed News reveals the extent to which concerned Facebook users went to warn the company of a group calling for public violence, and how the company failed to act. “The event is highly unusual in retrospect,” reads the report, which notes that the next highest event for the day had been flagged 18 times by users compared to the 455 times of the Kenosha Guard event.

After militia gathered in Kenosha on Tuesday night, a 17-year-old with a rifle allegedly killed two protesters. Facebook has maintained that the suspect, whose Facebook and Instagram profiles were taken down after the incident, had no direct connection with the Kenosha Guard page or event.

During Facebook’s Thursday all-hands meeting, Zuckerberg said that the images from Wisconsin were “painful and really discouraging,” before acknowledging that the company had made a mistake in not taking the Kenosha Guard page and event down sooner. The page had violated Facebook’s new rules introduced last week that labeled militia and QAnon groups as “Dangerous Individuals and Organizations” for their celebrations of violence.

The company did not catch the page despite user reports, Zuckerberg said, because the complaints had been sent to content moderation contractors who were not versed in “how certain militias” operate. “On second review, doing it more sensitively, the team that was responsible for dangerous organizations recognized that this violated the policies and we took it down.”

During the talk, Facebook employees hammered Zuckerberg for continuing to allow the spread of hatred on the platform.

“At what point do we take responsibility for enabling hate filled bile to spread across our services?” wrote one employee. “[A]nti semitism, conspiracy, and white supremacy reeks across our services.”

The internal report seen by BuzzFeed News sheds more light on Facebook’s failure.

“Organizers… advocated for attendees to bring weapons to an event in the event description,” the internal report reads. “There are multiple news articles about our delay in taking down the event.”

In addition to the four manual reviews that determined the Kenosha Guard page to be non-violative, the Facebook report also noted a number of reviews that “were handled by automation” had reached the same conclusion. As part of a proposed change, the Facebook employee writing the report said that the company should monitor spikes in feedback reports for events and “trigger investigation immediately given this has proved to be a good signal for imminent harm.”

The report seems to acknowledge that Facebook was late to act.

“This post provides more details around what happened and changes we are making to detect and investigate similar events sooner,” the worker wrote. “This is a sobering reminder of the importance of the work we do, especially during this charged period.”

it is accurate in terms of engagements (likes, comments, shares) for all posts in the US with links

the ideal would probably be impressions or clicks, though - and that is not available in the tool kevin uses

it's data from CrowdTangle, which is Facebook's own (acquired) data and metrics operation, so yeah it's accurate. it was pretty funny when one of their PR flacks tried to downplay those top-10 lists (from a Facebook-owned company that was purchased to measure and publicize engagement on Facebook) as not representing true engagement on Facebook.

https://loudwire.com/facebook-rule-change-bands-livestream-show-delete-account/

Effective October 1, Facebook is taking steps to limit the ability of bands to promote videos that will "create a music listening experience for yourself or for others." This also extends to Facebook Live, which has been an especially popular avenue for livestreamed concerts in the pandemic era.

The language is quite ambiguous as to what constitutes a "listening experience for yourself or for others" in relation to videos, likely encompassing a large swath of music entertainment posts. The rule claims this is done because "we want you to be able to enjoy videos posted by family and friends" as the social media platform places increasing emphasis on these values.

sometimes I legit wonder if a dude like that has indoctrinated himself to the point of genuinely believing "we can't really exert THAT much control over our platform, because reasons" or if he literally sleeps on piles of cash to make himself feel better about it

Anyone watch the new Netflix doc on the social media peril society is in?

It's mostly a bunch of former designers hand wringing and in the end say "we all need to change" aka overthrow the addictive billion dollar tech industry so that we can avoid civil war lol.

It was an hour and a half of describing how we are manipulated and then a minute and a half at the end where they were like "we all have the power and the choices" lool maybe the 1% who are smart enough to delete, the rest NEVER will and we all are stuck with the consequences of their shit stained rabbit holes they drag themselves down 24/7
