Do NOT use FaceBook

Postby HBS Guy » 16 May 2018, 23:25

EVERYTHING you or your friends put on your page or on the pages you have “Liked” etc is being used in an effort to develop an Artificial Intelligence that will know all about you and your friends and families. Your smartphone will transmit your conversations to Facebook without being instructed too:

Zuckerberg’s desire to point us toward the next phase of Facebook’s development is notable. Because Facebook isn’t just hoping to use artificial intelligence. Facebook is a leading developer of artificial intelligence. And while Zuckerberg espoused the possibilities of powerful A.I. that recognizes the difference between hate speech and civil debate, he neglected to mention how Facebook is creating it: with more of our personal data.

Facebook saves every word, photo, and video we upload to its platform — even, apparently, the stuff that we think we’ve deleted. Using this massive trove of images and words, Facebook has set about developing computer programs that will recognize one thing from another without human intervention. Artificial intelligence can do great things, like stop impending suicides, but it can also help in other, less altruistic, areas — like advertising. Powerful A.I. that understands images as well as language might, for instance, one day make targeting ads or messages possible based on what surrounds you in a photo, or what you say in a video.

Jeez I think that is already happening.

I don't use social media...except for THIS. I do hope we are not compromised here, but I suspect EVERYONE is.

I stopped using Facebokluk a few years ago. Best decision in my life so far.

Bokluk means garbage on Bulgarian.

How much data did Facebook have on one man? 1,200 pages of data in 57 categories.

"Personal data is the 'oil' Facebook is drilling for," says Max Schrems, Austrian law student and founder of the advocacy group Europe versus Facebook. "They might not have the best motor to burn it yet, but they know it will be coming." Schrems, 26, is all too aware of how much data the world's largest social network stores. In 2010, while researching his thesis, he asked Facebook if it could send him all of the user data the company had relating to his own account. Amazingly, he got a response.

Facebook was, in Schrems' words, "dumb enough" to send him all his data in a 1,200-page PDF. It showed that Facebook kept records of every person who had ever poked him, all the IP addresses of machines he had used to access the site (as well as which other Facebook users had logged in on that machine), a full history of messages and chats and even his "last location", which appeared to use a combination of check-ins, data gathered from apps, IP addresses and geo-tagged uploads to work out where he was. As Schrems went through the document, he found items he thought he had deleted, such as messages, status updates and wall posts. He also found personal information he says he never supplied, including email addresses that had been culled from his friends' address books.
