People who don't like what JEWestern social media is doing certainly should consider VK and Yandex.

My wife and daughter have Facebook. 

 

I won't get it because Facebook owners are subversives and spy on everyone.

 

Zuckerberg is a lead criminal who abuses America, the world, and his neighbors in Hawaii. Checkout what they say about him.

 

I will try Russia's Facebook asap!

 

Great post!!!

Facebook is the largest and most established so having a facebook account is useful for both social and professional life, but everyone should also use VK and Yandex (search engine, browser and email)

Snopes Now Have Power To 'Shadowban' Conservative Facebook Users
 
 
 
 
 
July 18, 2018
 
 
Conservatives who share news articles that Snopes decide to suppress are having their Facebook posts hidden from their friends.
 
Are your Facebook posts being shown to your friends and followers - or have you been "shadowbanned" by Snopes for sharing conservative content on the social media platform?
 
Shadowbanning is a new concept in social media and involves banning a user from a platform in such a way that the banned user is unaware of the ban. A shadowbanned user will be able to see their own posts, but other users, including friends and followers, do not get to see them in their newsfeed.
 
Thanks to new Facebook rules, conservatives who share news articles that Snopes decide to suppress, or opinion pieces that CEO David Mikkelson considers deplorable, are having their Facebook posts hidden from their friends, family and followers.

censorship - Facebook removes Guardian writer's video
 
 
 
 
October 17, 2018 
 
 
'Explain this censorship': Facebook removes Guardian writer's video on British colonial crimes
Guardian columnist George Monbiot is the latest to decry Facebook's increased censorship after a video he made, on the crimes of European colonialism, was taken down by the tech giant.
 
In his tweet, following the removal of the video Monbiot wrote: "Here's our video about the airbrushing of colonial history, that @facebook has gone and airbrushed."
 
This is extraordinary. @facebook - could you explain this censorship?
_________________________________________________________________
 
Our film on Columbus by @GeorgeMonbiot has been deleted by @facebook for "violating community standards."
 
The film was a serious piece of historical journalism, gaining 1m views
 
We were given no right of appeal, or exact reason for censorship
 
Why is Facebook censoring history?

Facebook accused of lying
 
 
 
 
 
October 17, 2018 
 
 
Facebook accused of lying about video stats error for over a year
 
Facebook is guilty of lying to advertisers, according to a new lawsuit. Back in 2016, online marketing agency Crowd Siren sued the social network for inflating its metrics -- now it claims Facebook knew as early as 2015 that it was over-reporting figures. The marketing agency has also thrown in fraud claims and a request for punitive damages in an amended complaint, filed this week.
 
It all comes down to the way Facebook initially reported the average viewing time of video ads. During the original investigation, it was found that the company only counted video views that lasted more than three seconds when calculating its "average duration of video viewed" metric. Views under three seconds weren't factored in, thereby inflating the average length of a view. Facebook disclosed the issue in 2016, claiming it had "recently discovered" the error.
 
After reviewing some 80,000 pages of internal Facebook records, obtained as part of court proceedings, Crowd Siren now claims that Facebook had not only known about the issue for over a year, but had massively underestimated its miscalculations. The company told some advertisers it overestimated average time spent watching videos by 60% to 80%. The plaintiffs, however, believe that figure is much larger, and that average viewership metrics had been inflated by as much as 900%.
 
Facebook says the lawsuit is without merit and has moved to dismiss the fraud claim. In a statement, a spokesperson said that "suggestions that we in any way tried to hide this issue from our partners are false." However, Crowd Siren says the documents indicate that several advertisers had made inquiries about seemingly suspect video metrics back in July 2015.
 
Regardless of the outcome of the lawsuit, these allegations will not sit well with advertisers, and Facebook needs to keep them happy as it seeks a larger slice of the video ad pie. Previously, trade group The Association of National Advertisers had called on Facebook to allow independent verification of its metrics. The social network moved to accommodate this by allowing third-party measurement companies to validate its data, but this is unlikely to fill advertisers with much confidence if it's found that Facebook was knowingly lying to them all along.

Priest Defrocked For Facebook Photos

Belarusian Priest Defrocked For Facebook Photos, Amid Orthodox Schism
 
 
Belarusian priest Alyaksandr Shramko: "I was told that I have dishonored everyone."
 
A Minsk priest never thought that taking pictures of visiting Russian Orthodox head Patriarch Kirill and posting them on Facebook would get him banished from the church.
 
But that's exactly what happened to Alyaksandr Shramko on October 16 when he received an official letter from the head of the Belarusian Orthodox Church, Metropolitan Paval, saying he had been stripped of his duties at his St. Michael the Archangel Church parish and banned for one year from all church activities.
 
"I do not know really why [the photos were] such a big problem, but I was told that I have dishonored everyone -- Belarus, the [Orthodox] church, and the patriarch," Shramko told RFE/RL's Belarus Service.
 
His letter from Paval said he had lost the right "to serve, wear the cross, or [give] blessings" because of the "systematic publication in the media [of photos and text] that discredited the Orthodox Church and sowed enmity and hatred in the hearts [of its faithful]."

Facebook again accessible in Uzbekistan
 
Facebook resumed operation in Uzbekistan on Oct. 17 after the third major outage within a month, Uzbek media reported.
 
The residents of Uzbekistan had problems with accessing Facebook accounts for the last time on Oct. 12. For the past five days, Facebook was accessible only through VPN services.
 
At the same time, problems with YouTube, which has been difficult to access since October 8, still exist.
 
September 2018 became a serious test for Facebook fans. For the first time, social network became inaccessible in early September and was down for almost a week - on September 4-12.
 
The second time disruptions in Facebook's operation occurred on September 17 and the social network was inaccessible until September 27. These have been the greatest problems observed in Uzbekistan with accessing accounts of the social network since its launch.

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg set to be removed amid app spy allegations 
 
 
 
 
October 18th 2018
 
 
 
 
at 12:13, Updated October 18th 2018 at 12:41 GMT +3 Facebook chairman Mark is under pressure from shareholders to resign following recent privacy and election scandals. [Photo: Courtesy] IN SUMMARY  Four major U.S. public funds that hold shares in Facebook Inc on Wednesday proposed removing Chief Executive Officer as chairman following several high-profile scandals and said they hoped to gain backing from larger asset managers. Scandals involve meddling in 2016 US elections by Cambridge Analytica and fake news by the social media giant. $150 billion was wiped out from the social network after rumors emerged that it held a hand in meddling US elections in 2016. Facebooks newly developed voice activated speaker and video chat gadget is alleged to spy on users.Recently, Facebook confessed that data breach had affected personal data of 30 million users. Facebook chairman Mark Zuckerberg is under pressure from shareholders to resign following recent privacy and election scandals. One of the scandals involves meddling in 2016 US elections by Cambridge Analytica and fake news by the social media giant. Four major U.S. public funds that hold shares in Facebook Inc on Wednesday proposed removing Chief Executive Officer as chairman following several high-profile scandals and said they hoped to gain backing from larger asset managers. State treasurers from Illinois, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania, and New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer, co-filed the proposal. They oversee money including pension funds and joined activist and original filer Trillium Asset Management. A similar shareholder proposal seeking an independent chair was defeated in 2017 at Facebook, where Zuckerberg’s majority control makes outsider resolutions effectively symbolic. Rhode Island State Treasurer Seth Magaziner said that the latest proposal was still worth filing as a way of drawing attention to Facebook’s problems and how to solve them. “This will allow us to force a conversation at the annual meeting, and from now until then in the court of public opinion,” Magaziner said in a telephone interview. Your opinion is valuable. Take this quick survey to help us improve the website and content A Facebook spokeswoman declined to comment. At least three of the four public funds supported the 2017 resolution as well. The current proposal, meant for Facebook’s annual shareholder meeting in May 2019, asks the board to create an independent board chair to improve oversight, a common practice at other companies. It cites controversies that have hurt the reputation of the world’s largest social media network, including the unauthorized sharing of user information, the proliferation of fake news, and foreign meddling in U.S. elections. Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs said in an interview that, while an independent chair might not have prevented all the issues, “there might have been fewer of these problems and less of a drop in share price” at the company. Shares of Facebook have had a rocky year, under pressure from revelations about the privacy and operational issues as well as concerns over slowing revenue growth. They closed Wednesday at $159.42, 10 percent lower than at the start of the year and well off a closing high of $217.50 reached on July 25. The 2017 resolution received the support of a slim majority of outside investors, according to the public fund leaders’ calculations. Magaziner and Frerichs said they planned to talk with larger Facebook investors in coming months to seek their support. Among funds that are Facebook’s largest investors, the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund and Fidelity Contrafund voted against the 2017 proposal, securities filings show, while the American Funds Growth Fund of America supported it. American Funds representatives did not reply to requests for comment on Wednesday. Spokespeople for Fidelity and Vanguard declined to comment. Contrafund manager Will Danoff was supportive of Facebook’s response to problems in an investor note in August. In opposing the 2017 proposal, Facebook said an independent chair could “cause uncertainty, confusion, and inefficiency in board and management function and relations.” Zuckerberg has about 60 percent voting rights, according to a company filing in April. The New York City Pension Funds owned about 4.5 million Facebook shares as of July 31, while Trillium held 53,000 shares. The Pennsylvania Treasury held 38,737 shares and the Illinois Treasury owned 190,712 shares as of August. Rhode Island funds hold 168,230 Facebook shares, a spokesman said On July 25, Investment company Trillium Asset Management which held a sake of $11 million in Facebook put forward a proposal to break up the roles of Zuckerberg as chief executive and chairman which he was assuming. $150 billion was wiped out from the social network after rumors emerged that it held a hand in meddling US elections in 2016. Data and Privacy breach Facebooks newly developed voice activated speaker and video chat gadget is alleged to spy on users. Facebook admitted that the portal is able to collect data about a user and use it to target advertisements. The portal voice calling is built on a messenger infrastructure which means it is capable of gathering user’s information on the length and frequency of calls and use the data to generate ads for its site. Nearly a decade ago, Mark Zuckerberg held that privacy was no longer a “social norm.” Recently, Facebook confessed that data breach had affected personal data of 30 million users.

750k Filipino Facebook (American) users 'compromised'
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
October 18, 2018
 
 
Over 750k Filipino Facebook users 'compromised' in September data breach
 
More than 750,000 Philippines-based Facebook user accounts may have been compromised when the social media network was breached in September, the National Privacy Commission said on Friday.
 
The information was contained in the commission's order for Facebook to, among others, notify the affected data subjects of their exposure and provide identity theft and phishing insurance for affected Filipino data subjects.
 
More than 30 million people worldwide have been affected by the breach that used Facebook's "View As" feature and Facebook informed the NPC on October 13 that 755,973 Philippines-based Facebook users had been affected.
 
Of this number, 7,424 are Philippine-based users whose posts on their timeline, their list of friends, groups they are members of, and the names of recent Messenger conversations may have been exposed.
 
This forced Facebook to log out users from their accounts on September 28.
 
"As Facebook itself notes, the main potential impact for affected users will be an increased likelihood of getting targeted for professional 'spam' operations and 'phishing' attacks," the NPC said in its order dated October 17 and signed by Commissioner Raymund Liboro.
 
The NPC said the risk and vulnerability of Filipinos to spam and phishing were regarded as one of the highest in the world.
 
It cited the Are You Cyber Savvy Report from Kaspersky Lab, which found that nine out of 10 Filipinos were susceptible to phishing attacks.3
 
"The Commission therefore deems it necessary that Facebook contemplate this cultural gap when notifying the affected data subjects. Facebook should modify its approach and provide a more conducive method that enables affected Filipino data subjects to better grasp the risks they face," the order said.
 
"Due to the nature and exposure of the Filipino data subjects, Facebook must also provide for identity theft insurance or credit monitoring service for free to affected Filipino data subjects; or, in the alternative, establish a dedicated helpdesk/help center for Filipino data subjects who may be adversely affected by this incident, to provide assistance in identity restoration and other related matters," it added.
 
Three buckets
 
According to the NPC, Facebook categorizes the affected users into three distinct groups, or "buckets" based on the personal information the perpetrator may have accessed.
 
Citing Facebook's report on the breach, the first bucket involves an estimated 387,322 Philippine-based user accounts whose basic profile information may have been compromised.
 
Basic profile information consists of a user's registered full name, email address, and phone number (if one was so associated with the account).
 
The second bucket affects around 361,227 Philippine-based user accounts. In addition to the basic profile information potentially obtained as with the first group of users, the perpetrator may have also obtained:
 
Username,
 
First name used on the profile,
 
Last name used on the profile,
 
Name (nickname as set by the user on the profile (if any)),
 
Email address (primary email address associated with the account),
 
Phone (confirmed mobile phone numbers associated with account),
 
Gender (as set by the user on the profile),
 
Locale (language as picked by the user),
 
Relationship status (as set by the user on the profile),
 
Religion (as described by the user on the profile),
 
Hometown (as set by the user on the profile),
 
Location (current city, as set by the user on the profile),
 
Birthday (as set by the user on the profile),
 
Devices (that are used by the user to access Facebook - fields include 'os' (e.g., iOS) and hardware (e.g., iPhone),
 
Educational background (as set by the user on the profile),
 
Work history (as set by the user on the profile),
 
Website (list of URLs entered by the user into the website field on the profile),
 
Verified status information (this is a flag for whether Facebook has a strong indication that the user is who they say they are),
 
List of most recent places where the user has checked in (these locations are determined by the places named in the posts, such as a landmark or restaurant, not location data from a device),
 
Recent search queries on Facebook, and
 
Up to the top 500 accounts that the user follows.
 
The third bucket involves the 7,424 Philippine-based users whose timeline and messenger conversations may have been exposed. -NB, GMA News
