Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sent feeds that helped police track minorities in Ferguson and Baltimore, report says

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2016/10/11/facebook-twitter-and-instagram-sent-feeds-that-helped-police-track-minorities-in-ferguson-and-baltimore-aclu-says/

"Facebook and especially Twitter have built their brands on the backs of Black users. CEOs Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey have openly courted activists and organizations in the Movement for Black Lives to engage with their platforms. This makes each of their involvement with social media surveillance tools used against Black activists all the more disturbing,” said Brandi Collins of Color of Change, an online racial justice group, in a statement Tuesday morning.

She added: "While we're glad both companies have cut off Geofeedia's access to user data, both of these companies only did so after these secret deals were made public. Both companies need to immediately develop publicly accessible policies that prevent these types of harmful deals from happening again in the future.”

Geofeedia's pretty #fff https://geofeedia-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Geofeedia-Kickoff-2.jpg

the key to happiness is not being rich;
it's doing something arduous and
creating something of value and then
being able to reflect on the fruits of your labor

I wonder if they explicitly knew if their feeds weregoing to law enforcement.

I doubt it though; not because they are moral in any sort of way...only because Geofeedia was getting a check that they ain't get a real part of, lol.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

... will do the work for you.

Everyone willingly gives the government all the information about their daily lives possible. I guarantee you that Snapchat's stupid ass animated filters are helping to build a facial recognition database and it's feeding the feds constantly. IG is giving evidence of where you've been and who you were with as well as FB. Twitter gives insight into your political leanings and where you are on social issues, plus all of them help to map out your associations via your friends lists.

y'all fell for the okie-doke.

Where is the peace when we are in the back of ambulances? Where is the peace then?
They don't want to call for peace then.
