Seattle police detective arrested for ID theft, cyberstalking

Seattle police detective arrested for ID theft, cyberstalking | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

A Seattle police detective was arrested Thursday for felony identity theft, with the underlying crime of domestic violence cyberstalking, the department confirmed at a press conference.

David N. Blackmer, 43, was arrested at police department headquarters, where he is assigned to the Criminal Investigations Bureau.

According to police, Blackmer created a Facebook account under the name of a woman whom he had a sexual relationship with and used it to post information that was "salacious in nature."

The posts included sexually explicit photos of the woman, according to Seattle Police Sgt. Sean Whitcomb.

The woman went to the detective's home to "confront him in front of his family" after their romantic relationship ended badly, police said in a statement. He retaliated by creating the page using the woman's identity, police said.

The woman reported the page to the Seattle Police Department's Office of Professional Accountability on Wednesday, July 17. She said the page caused her "fear and embarrassment."

The officer has been with the department since March 1996, according to the city's personnel department. He was previously assigned to patrol.

Blackmer has been placed on paid administrative leave. That status would change tounpaid if he's charged with a felony.

Under state law, a person is guilty of cyberstalking if "he or she, with intent to harass, intimidate, torment, or embarrass any other person, and under circumstances not constituting telephone harassment, makes an electronic communication to such other person or a third party."

Facebook Live Audio Is Rolling Out Soon. Here's How to Use It

Facebook recently launched a new feature--Facebook Live Audio. It's still in the testing phase at the moment, but in conjunction with my publisher, HarperCollins, I got to be one of the first people to test it.

It's similar to the current version of Facebook Live, but without the video component. That means you can broadcast live without a video camera. I suspect many people will want to use it because of its simplicity.

All you need is a smartphone and the Facebook app to get started. And with a click of a few buttons, you can start talking to your Facebook fans.

The Benefits of Facebook Live Audio

There are several benefits to using the audio only feature. For starters, you don't have to worry about how your hair looks or whether there's sufficient lighting since you won't appear on video. So whether you prefer to have a script in front of you or you want to broadcast while you're using your treadmill desk, the audio version may provide you with more opportunities.

Second, the audio only feature allows your audience to multi-task. They can scroll through their Facebook feed or open a new window while they continue to listen to your live broadcast. That makes it much easier to retain your audience for the duration of your broadcast.

Finally, the audio only feature doesn't require as strong of a signal as the video version. So you can broadcast from the top of a mountain or on a boat in the sea with fewer problems. Also, audience members with slower internet--and those who are trying to limit their data use--may be able to tune in.

Here's how to use Facebook Live Audio:

1. Choose a picture to display.

You can choose a picture to display throughout your broadcast. I usually opt for a picture of myself and a picture of my book so that listeners know who they are talking to and so they know what I'm talking about. If you don't choose a picture, your profile image will show up.

2. Create a short explanation of your broadcast.

Just like with regular Facebook Live broadcasts, the audio only version allows you to write a short description of your event. Tell people what they can expect from tuning in. A catchy description will encourage people to click.

3. Choose the audio icon.

Then, when you get ready to go live, you'll be able to choose either video or audio. Click on the audio button and you won't have to worry about your camera.

4. Interact with your audience.

Just like with the video version, Facebook Live Audio allows you to interact with your audience. You'll see their questions and comments show up the same way and they can also hit the like button or the share button during your broadcast.

5. Post it to your wall.

When your broadcast is over you can share it to your wall. The bulk of your listeners will likely tune in after it ends. You can edit your description or continue responding to questions and comments as they come in.

Plan Ahead for How You'll Use Facebook Live Audio

Facebook Live Audio isn't available to everyone quite yet. But it's likely that within the next few months everyone will gain access. It's a good idea to plan ahead and consider how you can capitalize on this new feature as soon as it's available.

Facebook video could be coming to a television near you

Facebook video could be coming to a television near you | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Your aimless channel surfing could lead you right to Facebook video.

Facebook is working on an app for television set-top boxes like Apple TV, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

Facebook, which has 1.79 billion monthly active users, declined to comment on the timing of the app or where else it might be available.

The app could bring Facebook video right into living rooms. It's another way the social network is pushing video these days. Since the company introduced live video streaming in April 2016, it's been testing the placement of ads in videos. It's even been testing a feature similar to Snapchat Stories where users can share videos and photos for 24 hours before those items disappear....

Kidnap & Torture Captured on Facebook Live, Suspects Busted (VIDEO)

Kidnap & Torture Captured on Facebook Live, Suspects Busted (VIDEO) | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Four sick bastards got busted in Chicago for allegedly tying up and torturing a white guy ... and they broadcast the whole crime on Facebook Live.

The suspects are all black and shouted "F*** Donald Trump" and "F*** white people" repeatedly during a 30 minute video that showed them harassing and tormenting the victim ... even cutting his scalp, leaving him bleeding at one point.

The victim is an 18-year-old from a Chicago suburb. Police say he is mentally challenged, and had been reported missing. He was found disoriented Tuesday, and cops later connected him to the disturbing social media clip ... which led them to the suspects.

Facebook Live gets accessible with third-party closed captioning

Facebook Live gets accessible with third-party closed captioning | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Over 38 million people in the US are deaf or hard-of-hearing, and Facebook wants them to be able to watch the 1 in 5 of its videos that are broadcast live. So today it’s taking the first step towards making Facebook Live more accessible by allowing publishers to create and stream closed captions for their Live videos either on their own or with the help of a technology vendor like Ai-Media or Telestream

However, Facebook isn’t offering automatic closed captioning through its tech the way it does for free for recorded and uploaded Page videos. That would significantly increase the coverage of captions on Live videos, but could be prohibitively difficult or expensive to offer in at scale in the low-latency real-time nature necessary for Live broadcasts.

Instead, only publishers using the Live API that generate CEA-608 standard closed captions or work with a vendor who does will be able to ad

Video surfaces of man being dragged from overbooked United flight

Video surfaces of man being dragged from overbooked United flight | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

A video posted to Facebook Sunday evening showed what is becoming another public relations nightmare for United Airlines, which is owned by United Continental Holdings.

One unnamed passenger boarded a United flight at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, headed to Louisville, not knowing he was about to be forced to leave a plane that was overbooked.

A nearly 30-second video clip, posted on social media by a fellow passenger, shows three security officers approaching a man who was already seated, asking him to give up his spot on the plane. After the man refuses, he was eventually dragged by his arms and screaming toward the front of the plane.

 

A witness to the debacle said passengers were warned at the gate that the flight was overbooked, and United was asking for volunteers to switch flights, with reimbursements included. Nobody spoke up.

According to Audra Bridges, who posted the video to her Facebook page Sunday evening, United management came on board the flight and used a computer to randomly select four passengers who would be removed from that trip.

The man in the video — one of those four randomly selected — reportedly claimed he was a doctor and needed to see his patients at the hospital in the morning, then proceeded to say he would call his lawyers.

Facebook combats fake news with new warning label

Facebook combats fake news with new warning label | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Don’t believe everything you read on Facebook.

The Silicon Valley tech firm has started rolling out a new warning label for news stories that are “disputed” by a third-party fact checker, such as Snopes and PolitiFact. These fact-checking organizations are part of Poynter’s International Fact-Checking Network.

Facebook users can flag a fake news story by clicking on a gray downward arrow button on the right side of an article.

The spread of misinformation on social media sites became a growing concern after Donald Trump won the presidential election.

“We’ve made progress fighting hoaxes the way we fight spam, but we have more work to do,” wrote Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a lengthy February letter outlining the company’s global ambitions. “We are proceeding carefully because there is not always a clear line between hoaxes, satire and opinion.”

He noted that the company is trying to focus on surfacing more information from fact checkers rather than pulling down fake content.

One fictional story that has been flagged on Facebook is an article by a satire website called The Seattle Tribune that said Trump’s unsecured Android device was the source of recent White House leaks.

The website, though, has a disclaimer that the stories it publishes are fictional and meant to be satire.

 

When you click on the disputed story, a message from Facebook pops up — along with links to Snopes and PolitiFact — explaining why it’s fake news.

While Snopes points out that the website is not a legitimate news outlet, it also notes there is misinformation in the piece.

“That article cited two non-existent ‘intelligence agencies,’ A.R.H. Intelligence and Z|13 Security, as its primary source, and hijacked the social media hashtag #DitchTheDevice, which has been used to encourage cell phone users to spend more time away from their tech, “ Snopes wrote.

While some Facebook users noticed that the story was fictional, others publicly shared the story on the social network as if it were fact.

CPD: Attack on mentally disabled man posted on social media

CPD: Attack on mentally disabled man posted on social media | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Chicago Police detectives are questioning four African-Americans suspected of torturing a white mentally disabled man and recording the attack, while someone yelled “F— Trump!” and “F— white people!”

Police officials did not specify which formal charges they were seeking, though they did not rule out classifying the attack as a hate crime.

The case’s executive officer, Steven Sesso of the Harrison District, said officers on patrol Tuesday near Homan and Lexington encountered the man.

“They saw clearly that this individual was in distress and he was in crisis. And they cared enough to do something about it.”

The victim is believed to have been held hostage and tortured in an apartment in the 3400 block of West Lexington on the West Side, Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

One reason officers initially stopped to talk to the man was that he was wearing shorts despite the day’s frigid temperature, Guglielmi said.

In this still frame from a YouTube video, a gagged man is harassed by two men, one of whom cuts open the sleeve of the victim’s sweatshirt. | Screenshot

Several videos of the incident were posted on Facebook. In one of them, on a woman’s Facebook page, a man threatens the victim with a knife. Someone tells the victim, “kiss the floor, b—-!” and “nobody can help you anymore.” At one point, someone tells the man, “say ‘I love black people.’ ”

About 5:30 p.m., officers were called to a battery in progress about half a block away from where the victim was picked up. At the battery scene, “they discovered signs of a struggle and damage to property and were able to link this evidence to the disoriented male,” according to a statement from police.

After being made aware of the video, police felt certain the disoriented man and the battery were connected.

The victim, a resident of northwest suburban Crystal Lake, knew one of the people arrested in connection with his attack from school, according to Area North Detectives Commander Kevin Duffin.

From Streamwood — where the man was reported to local police as missing — the four took a stolen vehicle to the West Side, officials said.

He was with the four for about 24 hours until, police believe, they decided to release him.

Vietnamese students win $80,000 sponsorship from Facebook

Vietnamese students win $80,000 sponsorship from Facebook | SocialMediaFB | Scoop.it

Four Vietnamese university students will receive US$80,000 from Facebook to perfect their product designed to write status updates automatically on the social networking site, after winning big in a national technology contest.

The group of students, majoring in information technology at the University of Science under the Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City, is eligible for the sponsorship thanks to their outstanding performance at the 2016 Facebook Vietnam Hackathon, which was held on July 30 and 31 at RMIT University Vietnam.

The four winning students include Nguyen Le Bao, La Ngoc Thuy An, Nguyen Phuc Hau, and Huynh Van Tuan.

This was the first time that Facebook had organized the competition in the Southeast Asian country, which attracted over 1,000 applicants, of whom 110 from 29 teams advanced to the final round.

Finalists were required to work nonstop in 24 hours to finish and present their products, which had to meet all criteria in terms of creativity, positive social impacts, user-friendly interfaces, and technical complexity.

According to An, the only girl in the team who was in charge of coming up with concepts and presenting their products, many of their good ideas were denied as they had already been realized by Facebook developers.

“Their knowledge is far beyond ours,” An said, adding that the group members finally thought of their award-winning idea, the ‘automatic status.’
