"Did you learn anything from Frances Haugen"


  

          

https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/03/tech/facebook-whistleblower-60-minutes/index.html

noun
noun: whistleblower
a person who informs on a person or organization engaged in an illicit activity.

Did this product manager (or whatever role she filled) tell you anything revealing regarding Facebook? Is she REALLY a whistleblower? Her 2 years as a product manager didn't reveal anything (TO ME) that made me dislike social media PERIOD any less than I do already. With all the controversy that's surrounded Mr. Zuckerberg, the public has probly more 'evidence' than anything. So what really just happened in this interview cause it looks like NOTHING.

Probably had all sorts of code related to how Facebook manipulates the flow of information through their network that needed to be removed.

While it's their private platform, and they can technically do what they want with it, manipulating information might bright about some legal troubles, based on if they are operating as a platform or a publisher:

https://www.eff.org/issues/cda230
https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/12/publisher-or-platform-it-doesnt-matter


If FB is a platform, and users knowingly post false stories, then that's on the users

If FB is a publisher, and knowingly promotes false user stories, then that's on FB.

Of course Facebook is a huge company, so it's always a big "might" if the law is the same for them, or if there's a legal entity with enough muscle to even attempt to take them on.

Facebook is huge network. The code I'm alleging could have been used to manipulate global markets for the company's benefit. Same with elections, social & political views, etc.

I didn’t necessarily learn anything new either from the interview. But I would love to find out what the documents show

Also FB starting the smear campaign against her is right out of .. the big tobacco playbook. It backfired on them back in the day. Hope the strategy backfires for FB too.

It’s still super early of course and I’m just being hopeful for a change lol

I need visual evidence

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