Zuckerberg’s response to Cambridge scandal omits why it delayed investigating | #SocialMedia #Naivety #NobodyIsPerfect #ProactiveTHINKing 

Zuckerberg’s response to Cambridge scandal omits why it delayed investigating | #SocialMedia #Naivety #NobodyIsPerfect #ProactiveTHINKing  | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

I started Facebook, and at the end of the day I’m responsible for what happens on our platform” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted after days of the public and government officials waiting for him to speak up about the Cambridge Analytica scandal since it broke Friday. “We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you.”

Zuckerberg laid out a slate of changes Facebook will make to prevent past and future abuses of user data by app developers. Those include:

Blocking data access of apps you haven’t used for three months or more


Auditing old apps that collected a lot of personal data
Reducing the amount of data apps can pull using Facebook Login without an additional permissions screen to just your name, profile photo, and email address


Requiring a signed contract from developers that want to pull your posts or private information


Surfacing Facebook’s privacy third-party app privacy settings tool atop the News Feed to help people repeal access to apps


Telling people if their data was misued by the app associated with Cambridge Analytica, or apps Facebook bans for misue in the future.


What’s missing from this response is any indication why Facebook didn’t do more to enforce its policy prohibiting apps from sharing user data, or why it took Cambridge Analytica at their word when they said they deleted the data without proper investigation.

Facebook: Vorsicht vor Fake-Profilen


Mimikama, ein privater Verein zur Aufklärung über Internetmissbrauch, hat einen Facebook-Betrug aufgedeckt, der sich speziell an Männer richtet. Wie die Masche funktioniert, ist schnell erklärt: Männliche Facebook-User erhalten Anfragen von weiblichen Nutzerinnen. Es sind dabei nicht irgendwelche Frauen, sondern immer höchst attraktive, leicht bekleidete Damen, die laut Profil zufällig auch noch ganz in der Nähe wohnen.


Auf ihren Profilseiten bieten die Frauen in Posts Live-Shows und kostenlose Chats mit "Webcamgirls" an. Dafür muss man nur auf einen Link klicken, der in den Posts zu finden ist - was Sie keinesfalls tun sollten!

"Facebook-Gesetz" in Kraft getreten | #SocialMedia #Laws #Germany

"Facebook-Gesetz" in Kraft getreten | #SocialMedia #Laws #Germany | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Am heutigen 1. Oktober tritt das Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz (NetzDG) in Kraft. Strafbare Inhalte sollen damit schneller aus sozialen Netzwerken verschwinden. Sowohl die Behörden als auch Facebook haben personell bereits aufgestockt.

Am heutigen 1. Oktober tritt das Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz (NetzDG) – oft auch "Facebook-Gesetz" genannt – in Kraft. Das Gesetz soll Anbieter sozialer Netzwerke dazu bringen, "offenkundig strafbare Inhalte" nach spätestens 24 Stunden zu löschen, wenn sie davon Kenntnis haben. Dieser Teil des Gesetzes soll erst nach einer Übergangsphase von drei Monaten angewandt werden.

Für die Prüfung von weniger eindeutig rechtswidrigen Inhalten haben die Plattformbetreiber nun sieben Tage Zeit. Stellt sich heraus, dass die Betreiber systemische Mängel aufweisen, die die Umsetzung des NetzDG verhindern, drohen bis zu 50 Millionen Euro Bußgeld.

Facebook buys computer vision startup focused on adding objects to video | #Acquisitions #SocialMedia #AR #Fayteq

Facebook has acquired a German company called Fayteq that builds software add-ons for video editing that can remove and add whole objects from captured video using computer vision. The acquisition was first reported by a German startup publication (via Variety) and confirmed to TechCrunch, and could be useful as Facebook pursues additional video filter creation technology, both for its live streaming efforts, and for platforms like Instagram Stories.

Of course, being able to add objects to live video and remove them or cover them over on the fly is also something that can be put to interesting use in the emerging field of augmented reality. Facebook launched an AR platform for its built-in camera feature in April at this year’s F8, with the aim of encouraging developers to build AR experiences for use in Facebook on smartphones, which Mark Zuckerberg has said will be “the first augmented reality platform that becomes mainstream.”

Facebook plant Großangriff auf TV-Sender! Schon im Juni starten Shows und Serien | #SocialMedia  | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Facebook macht Ernst. Schon im Juni sollen zwei Dutzend Shows und Serien starten, die exklusiv für das soziale Netzwerk produziert werden. Dafür hat sich Facebook nun auch prominente Unterstützung ins Boot geholt.


Bewegtbildinhalte sind bei Facebook schon seit einiger Zeit im Trend. Jetzt will Facebook-Chef Mark Zuckerberg noch einen Schritt weiter gehen. Im Juni bringt das Unternehmen nun zwei Dutzend teils aufwändig produzierte Serien und Shows im YouTube-Stil an den Start, wie "Business Insider" berichtet.

 

Demnach lautet die Strategie von Facebook, sowohl hochwertige und längere Shows als auch kurze fünf- bis zehnminütige Shows zu produzieren. Facebook kommentierte die Pläne zunächst nicht.

‘Adult’ video for Facebook users - Securelist | #CyberSecurity #Awareness #SocialMedia

‘Adult’ video for Facebook users - Securelist | #CyberSecurity #Awareness #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

In April of this year, we registered some mass attacks on Facebook users in Russia. As a result, many Russian-speaking users of the social network fell victim.

 

The attackers use a compromised Facebook account to post a link to an adult video that is supposedly on the popular YouTube service. In order to attract potential victims, “likes” are added from the account holder’s list of friends. The fraudsters rely on the user or their friends being curious and those who would like to watch an “18+” video.

 

We strongly recommend not clicking such links and not installing suspicious browser extensions. It’s also worth checking if any suspicious extensions have already been installed. If any are discovered, they should be immediately removed via the browser settings, and the passwords for sites that are visited most often, especially online banking, should be changed.

Facebook acquires ID verification startup Confirm.io | #Acquisitions #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
(Reuters) — Facebook Inc is buying a software firm that specializes in authenticating government-issued identification cards, the two companies said on Tuesday, a step that may help the social media company learn more about the people who buy ads on its network.

U.S. lawmakers have expressed alarm at Facebook’s limited ability to know who is buying advertisements, including election-related ads, on the world’s largest social network.

Boston-based Confirm Inc, which is privately held, said on its website that the acquisition was the culmination of three years of work to build technology to keep people safe online.

Facebook said in a statement Confirm’s “technology and expertise will support our ongoing efforts to keep our community safe.”

Terms of the deal and how Facebook would apply Confirm’s software were not revealed.
