Plaintext #passwords at #Facebook


Source: https://newsroom.fb.com/news/2019/03/keeping-passwords-secure/
As part of a routine security review in January, we found that some user passwords were being stored in a readable format within our internal data storage systems. This caught our attention because our login systems are designed to mask passwords using techniques that make them unreadable. We have fixed these issues and as a precaution we will be notifying everyone whose passwords we have found were stored in this way.

Damit alle, die #neuhier sind auch mal etwas in ihrem Stream zu sehen bekommen, ist hier mal eine Übersicht über "offizielle" Präsenzen von Institutionen, Bloggern usw. im #fediverse. Das soll jetzt mal keine Liste mit gespiegelten Newsfeeds sein, sondern wirklich aktive Konten.

Die Liste ist hoffentlich nicht vollständig und kann gerne in den Kommentaren erweitert werden. Alle, die hier in der Liste auftauchen, sind auch mehr oder weniger aktiv. Ich werde diese Liste auch regelmäßig aktualisieren.

Es wäre natürlich toll, wenn möglichst viele diesen Konten folgen, damit die verantwortlichen Redakteure usw. sehen, das es Sinn macht, auch hier ein Konto zu haben und nicht nur eine Handvoll Nerds damit bespielt werden.

Zum Folgen dieser Accounts einfach dem Link folgen und auf Verbinden klicken, oder den Link kopiert, bei euch unter Kontakte geht, im Feld Neue Kontakte hinzufügen den Link einfügt und auf Verbinden klickt.

Nachrichten, (Netz)Politik usw.






Kultur und Unterhaltung






Kommerzielles usw.






Die hier sind leider ziemlich inaktiv:




Politisches, Stiftungen, Parteien






Bei denen hier passiert leider nicht mehr so viel:




Federation






AStAs

Trump orders investigation into critical news outlets, Google, Twitter and Facebook


“It seems to be, if it’s conservatives, if Republicans, there is big discrimination,” Drumpf said of social media platforms. “I see it absolutely on Twitter,” he said, also naming Google and Facebook as offenders.

I guess her heard about Nunes' lawsuit against Twitter for allowing people to express their sometimes blatant opinion. But why would he name Twitter anyway? I mean, he's on there all the time, trampling through it with his tweets, it's like his regular press secretary. He's an idiot, after all.

“You look at the networks, you look at the news, you look at the newscasts – I call it Fake News,” Drumpf said, letting Bolsonaro know he had first dibs.

During the eventful Rose Garden presser, Drumpf also announced the “twilight hour of socialism has arrived” in the Western Hemisphere, citing unrest in Nicaragua, and change in Cuba.

Facebook überwacht Kritiker


Eingeräumt hat Facebook lediglich, dass der Konzern bei Bedarf den aktuellen Aufenthaltsort derjenigen ortet, deren Namen sich auf der Beobachtungsliste befinden: "Falls erforderlich kann die Analyse die Standortdaten des bedrohenden Benutzers einschließen", erläutert eine Facebook-Sprecherin uns gegenüber.

Überwachungsstaatliche Methoden in einem Privatkonzern. Sollte man meinen, dass die Freiheit des Marktes hierbei eine gewisse Grenze überschreitet? Immerhin könnten auch korrupte Staaten derartige Mittel ausnutzen, um sie zu instrumentalisieren. Da geschähe am Ende eine gewisse Kumpanei, wenn ihr mich fragt.

Dieser konzerninternen Richtlinie zufolge dürfe Facebook "Informationen verwenden, um Konten und Aktivitäten von Nutzern zu überprüfen, schädliches Verhalten zu bekämpfen, Spam und anderen schlechten Erlebnisse vorzubeugen, die Integrität unserer Produkte zu wahren und Safety und Security von Facebook-Produkten zu fördern."
Via @RⒶmonⒶ ⁽⁽⁽i⁾⁾⁾ // Mit wichtiger Anmerkung von @diritschka (Kann ich leider nicht erwähnen), dass Facebook damit eigentlich nichts macht, was wir nicht schon vorher gewusst hätten; eigentlich führt es damit nur eine schwarze Liste, welche dann gesondert geführt werden.

If you still think there is ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM in which Facebook can be trusted...


The Register got hold of this leaked transcript from a Facebook internal strategy meeting. I present it here for your perusal, calling your attention particularly to the following excerpt:
Sheryl Sandberg: I think that's a wise decision, Mark, but maybe let's not rush it. Perhaps we can undertake an internal review. There are some potential crossovers with the Portal and our core revenue drivers.

Zuckerberg: Such as?

Sandberg: Well, as you know, we recently made a commitment to allow people to limit Facebook's ability to interact with the microphone in their smartphone.

Zuckerberg: Yes, but it doesn't actually turn it off.

Sandberg: No, that was the previous commitment. The new commitment is a little more stringent.

Zuckerberg: You mean someone can actually stop us from listening to them?

Sandberg: Well, if they hit a precise combination of disjointed privacy settings then yes, it's possible. There are already guides on YouTube.

Zuckerberg: So when is our next settings refresh due?

Unknown Exec 3: We're ready to go now. Stats show six per cent of users have already cut full microphone access. We typically wait for it to hit 10 per cent before activating Operation Square One.
[silence]
You know, shuffling the settings around until it's all conveniently switched back on again. Microphone, location...

Zuckerberg: OK, good.
There is no possible conclusion one can draw from this except that Facebook knowingly, intentionally, and with malice aforethought systematically defeats its own users' privacy settings in order to continue to spy on them without their knowledge or permission. Seriously, this sounds like a meeting of stereotypical villains from a Hollywood movie. The corrupt business executives who, by the time the movie ends, have been arrested for their crimes and led off in handcuffs, and are looking at twenty years inside.

And some people still people wonder why I flatly refuse to use Facebook.

Amazing how #facebook just leaks everyone's phone number and doesn't let you disable that. Perhaps they can learn from the privacy settings in #nextcloud? Not even talking of the fact that we keep data on your own server, of course...

For years Facebook claimed the adding a phone number for 2FA was only for security. Now it can be searched and there's no way to disable that.

Now Facebook is allowing anyone to look you up using your security phone number


And I mean, geez, stuff like this with Facebook just isn’t a surprise anymore, is it? For years social media Big Brother had been pestering its users to secure their account with two-factor authentication (2FA) by prompting them to enter their phone number so they could get a text with a security code login when logging into their account from a new device for the first time.

HINT: Don't give your phone number to any business, they will sell it for a penny.

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

[:]




[:]

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

WIRED


Wired is a popular website referenced on the Federation by many users because it publishes great tech-based stories. But how private is it?
Although it offers an ‘ad-free’ version for subscribers, normal visitors are ruthlessly fleeced for their data.

WIRED has embed deals (agreements to embed tracking codes into their pages for money or gain) with a staggering 171 third parties including Google, Amazon, Facebook, Vogue, GQ, Golf Digest, Bonappetit and Vanity Fair.




Some tracking beacons embedded on WIRED and captured by Ublock Origin

[:]

151 of these third parties are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, Add This, Scorecard Research, Adobe, Twitter Analytics, Typekit, Criteo and Quantserve. Aggressive trackers like Google Tag Manager (GTM), Add This and Turn are present here.

Below is a screengrab of the many scripts NoScript has blocked from the WIRED website, the 33 scripts, gifs and beacons blocked by Ublock Origin and a couple by Disconnect.




[:]

WIRED sets 25 short-term and 28 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 69 tracking companies) to set 26 short-term and 133 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature enabled, so user details are sent to Google servers.

All WIRED servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.

Websites loading this many scripts/cookies are usually blacklisted by most users, not least because they drain a device’s battery.

WIRED claims that subscribing with them will mean an ad free experience, but I find it hard to believe that a subscription to WIRED will suddenly load a clean page without a single tracker retrieving data. But then I am not a WIRED subscriber. Please comment if you are and have no trackers.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

FOSSPOST


Seen by some as a safe pro-privacy resource celebrating Free and Open Source Software, FOSSPOST lets its users down by digitally fingerprinting their devices and loading 19 trackers into a browser.

[:]




[:]
FOSSPOST has embed deals with 27 third parties, making its embed renting in the ‘low’ category, including Google, Amazon, Creative Commons and WordPress.

13 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Mailerlite, One Signal and the data-hungry caterpillar that is WordPress.

FOSSPOST sets 2 short-term and 2 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 3 tracking companies) to set 4 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. All FOSSPOST servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules can be ignored.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

TECHCRUNCH


Acquired by Yahoo’s parent company, Oath (a company that includes AOL), under the Verizon umbrella, in 2010, this is a popular reference source for researchers and Federation users.

Historically, Yahoo deserves some kudos as they were one of the few big tech companies that objected to sharing their users’ details with the PRISM
spy program.

The Bush administration threatened them with $250k a day fines until they complied. Verizon bought them in 2017. Yahoo suffered the largest data breach in history in 2018.

The link to this NYT story is not embedded (consider blocking the GTM tracker on the site)

https://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/12/technology/documents-unsealed-in-yahoos-case-against-us-data-requests.html

TECHCRUNCH.com fingerprints the user’s device and dumps 2-7 Yahoo trackers in their browser, depending on the page loaded.

[:]




[:]

TECHCRUNCH has embed deals with 27 third parties, including Google, Facebook, Yahoo and WordPress.
15 of these are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Facebook, Yahoo, WordPress, Atwola, Typekit, AOL and Scorecard Research.

TECHCRUNCH sets 4 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 4 tracking companies) to set 1 short-term and 7 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics but interestingly enables the anonymization feature so some user details are not sent to Google servers.

All servers are based in the US so forget about GDPR privacy rules.

[:]

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

THE REGISTER .co.uk


Although a great resource with well-written and groundbreaking stories, it isn’t as private as I’d hoped.

There is no obvious digital fingerprinting but it seems to have gathered more Google syndication in the last couple of years, (9 of its 16 embed deals are with the Big G). 12 known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Admedo and the Amp Project gather data.

THE REGISTER sets 3 short-term and 4 long-term cookies itself while allowing its third party partners (including 2 tracking companies) to set 7 long-term cookies.

It uses Google Analytics without enabling the anonymization feature so user details are sent to Google servers. Although THE REGISTER’s domain is in the UK, both its data and email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though I am not a lawyer.

[:]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Guardian .com


I’ve been sitting on this for a few years now but it’s about time I blew the whistle.

I first noticed the Guardian newspaper’s website was digitally fingerprinting its users’ devices when they published an article on, um, Canvas Fingerprinting.

That page has been removed since, but they still continued doing it, long before Facebook, though not before Google.

[:]




[:]

I’ve kept quiet about this surveillance because I admire the paper for its incredible journalism, especially exclusives like the Snowdon revelations, and its general championing of freedom issues across many sectors of society. But the hypocrisy has started to wear me down.

[:]



Some tracking items & widgets embedded on Guardian .com and captured by Ublock Origin

The Guardian has embed deals with a privacy-sapping 142 third parties, including Google, Amazon, Bing, Twitter, and, despite being one of its main critics, Facebook. 132 of these third party partners are known tracking or advertising companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Turn, AddThis, Scorecard Research, Blue Kai, Twitter Analytics, Rubicon, Criteo and Quantserve.

Some of the most aggressive trackers like GTM, AddThis and Turn are present here.

The Guardian also sets 3 short-term and 5 long-term cookies itself, while allowing its third party partners (including 51 tracking companies) to set 10 short-term and 131 long-term cookies.

Yes, we NEED the Guardian’s continued existence, but castigating Facebook et al while allowing them to track its users doesn’t sit well with me.

The website uses Google Analytics but at least enables the anonymization feature, so some user details are not sent to Google servers.

Although The Guardian’s data servers are in Germany, their email servers are based in the US so GDPR privacy rules could be compromised here, though, again, I am not a lawyer.

In conclusion, I’ve given just 5 examples of popular sites Federation users quote in their posts.

I am NOT advocating a boycott of these sites but politely suggest we don’t OEmbed them, just feature a hyperlink and give readers the heads-up about these privacy concerns.

Alternatively, look for other sources featuring the same story. It’s also worth highlighting which websites do NOT add a tracker when we OEmbed a story, or have a low level of surveillance. Please promote those guys.

Acá tienen a uno que pretende hacer con los pods independientes lo mismo que hace EE.UU. con los países soberanos


Image/photo
https://diaspora.com.ar/posts/2756123

Un tal canek (canek@share.naturalnews.com ) del pod share.naturalnews.com, se las da, al igual que EE.UU, de defensor de la "Libertad de expresión" y para eso no se le ocurre mejor idea que hacer una lista negra de lo que llama "Cuck pods" llamando a no registrarse en ellos. Para eso usa un falso criterio de "libertad de expresión" que básicamente consiste en decir y hacer cualquier cosa mientras los podmins mantienen una postura pasiva y permisiva, limitándose solo a la administración técnica del pod que corren.

Nuestro pod fue incluído en su lista negra con la siguiente leyenda que pasaré a responder a continuación. Otros pods incluídos en la lista son pod.disroot.org, diasp.org, nerdpol.ch, pod.geraspora.de. Muchos de los usuarios bloqueados en esos pods son trolls o fascistas cuyas cuentas fueron borradas.
http://diaspora.com.ar

Another cuck pod. This one acts as a national pod calling itself “Diaspora Argentina” yet deletes the accounts of nationalists and right-wingers without warning and has even been known to make public their personal information. (https://diaspora.com.ar/posts/846253) (https://diasp.org/posts/9153227)

El crimen que cometimos según ellos, ofendiendo su criterio de "libertad", es el de haber "borrado cuentas de nacionalistas derechistas (fascistas) sin aviso y haber hecho pública su información personal". Sin embargo, si bien borramos varias cuentas de fascistas, solo en un caso hicimos público su mail, por el carácter violento y pro-genocida de un usuario que era defensor de la dictadura militar argentina, que actuaba como troll y atacaba las publicaciones de personas y organizaciones que defendìan los Derechos Humanos. De hecho sí fue advertido pero continuó con su hostigamiento, no dándonos más remedio que actuar en su contra.
Estos cabeza hueca-liberales condenan con listas negras a quienes actuamos contra fascistas pero nada dicen de estos fascistas cuando atacan a nuestros usuarios y reivindican el asesinato y desaparición de personas.

Su idea de "libertad" parece no aplicarse cuando se trata de proteger a nuestros usuarios y nuestro pod. Es la idea más tonta de libertad :"Sos libre de publicar lo que quieras". No importa ahí la responsabilidad, ni si atacás a alguien, ni importa tampoco la "libertad" de los administradores de permitir o no conductas destructivas dentro del pod. Somos admins y por eso somos unos forros que no tenemos que existir, que no tenemos que "meter mano". Parece como si tuviéramos que ser castigados por tener servidores, por que no sea todo p2p en Internet. No tiene que importar nuestro criterio porque no deberíamos ni existir. Tenemos que dejar que todo fluya frente a nuestros ojos y que cualquiera haga lo que quiera mientras nosotros ponemos la infraestructura, el trabajo, pagamos la luz y mantenemos el server. Y mientras muchos usuarios descansan cómodamente sobre nuestro trabajo para después criticarnos, cuando podrían ellos mismos abrirse su propio pod.

Es que, como dice este tal Canek, "Nosotros nos llamamos a nosotros mismos Diaspora* Argentina". Claro. No es porque seamos el único pod del país, ni el primero. Es porque le robamos a los 40 millones de habitantes la posibilidad de abrirse su propio pod. Hasta el nombre nos critican...
Estoy seguro que a los pods que están llenos de pornografía y pedofilia no los critican ¡No vi ninguno en esa lista! y miren que está lleno de pods así en Diaspora. Esos no son "Cuck pods"...

Entonces, según la idea de estos personajes, si actuamos contra un defensor del genocidio, dejamos de ser un pod libre. ¡Qué idea lineal y estúpida de entender la libertad!
Sin embargo, como en todo grupo social, tenemos nuestras condiciones y "acuerdos de convivencia", no compatibles con lo que hizo aquel sujeto en nuestro pod. Aquella forma de operar por parte de un usuario (reivindicación del genocidio, ataque a usuarios, etc), como lo especifican nuestros tèrminos de uso, es contrario al acuerdo que él suscribió y por ende, lo hace perder los derechos que de él se desprenden, así como habilita a los podmins a tomar acciones en su contra.
Esto está contemplado en los puntos 4 y 7 de nuestros términos de uso:

"4) (...) En Diaspora* Argentina consideramos al respeto y la camaradería como valores fundamentales a la hora de llevar adelante un debate. Por lo cual no estarán permitidos los usuarios troll, ni las publicaciones o comentarios que apunten a molestar, ofender o difamar a otros usuarios sin ningún tipo de motivo o argumento valedero. Diaspora* Argentina podría no tolerar la publicación de cualquier contenido que viole estos términos y definiciones, por lo cual los podmins tendrán el derecho de eliminar el contenido en cuestión, llamar la atención y/o tomar medidas contra el usuario que lo haya publicado."

"7) Incumplimiento de los Términos. El usuario que violara o incumpliera los Términos de uso, perderá las garantías y derechos que se desprenden de los mismos. Diaspora* Argentina entiende que ese usuario rompe su compromiso de uso del pod, establecido en estos Términos, habilitando a los administradores a tomar medidas de suspensión o eliminación sobre la cuenta del usuario. "

Las personas que reivindican el genocidio, la pedoficia, la trata de personas, la violencia de género, las violaciones, el racismo, etc, son para nosotros criminales que deben ser escrachados y llevados a la justicia. Nosotros no tenemos por qué permitir que ellos utilicen nuestra plataforma para descargar su odio y mucho menos los protegeremos mientras hacen eso. Por el contrario, los escracharemos como lo hicimos. Mal que les pese a estos "Freedom kiddies", las acciones llevadas a cabo por nosotros fueron mínimas en comparación a lo que este tipo de gente se merece.

Pero se malentiende el concepto de libertad. Para estos muchachitos pequebú occidentales y tecnicistas, tomar acciones contra un fascista es ir en contra de la libertad. Menudo concepto de libertad el de tolerar la intolerancia y la violencia política. Algo tán estúpido como decir: "Somos libres, entonces acá todos hacen lo que quieren, entonces admitimos a los que pretenden coartarle la libertad a la sociedad. Cómo se lo vamos a prohibir, si les prohibimos entonces no somos libres". Entonces, bajo este razonamiento, un pod libre es aquel que admite el fascismo, la divulgación de pedofilia, la violencia hacia las mujeres, etc.
Este concepto "liberal" de libertad me recuerda a Richard Stallman diciendo que él no tendría problemas en que un gobierno utilice Software Libre para tirar misiles. Y me recuerda a los partidos fascistas presentándose a elecciones y siendo admitidos como una opción más de la democracia.

A ver, niños amantes de "lo libre". La libertad en la sociedad es un poco más ámplia y compleja que "Free beer" o "Share with friends". Libertad implica responsabilidades a nivel social.

Un derechista nacionalista (un fascista) como el que uds nos señalan no debe ser admitido en un pod si su admin pretende defender la libertad de sus usuarios o la democracia del pod. Libertad no incluye la "libertad de atacar a otros".

Culpa de su "permisividad" Diaspora está llena de pedófilos y fachos. Culpa de esa idea de libertad abstracta y no comprometida con nada, el Software Libre es aprovechado por corporaciones para espiar a los usuarios y cometer atrocidades. Maduren un poco, y no se suban al caballito de "Nosotros defendemos lo libre" si realmente no entienden nada.

Ustedes me recuerdan al gobierno de los Estados Unidos. Si son yanquis puedo comprender ese comportamiento. Tal vez imiten a "sus jefes". Estados Unidos se las da de ser el "Gendarme del mundo" y el "Defensor de los Derechos Humanos y la libertad". Pero ocuren las peores cosas en los países que están bajo su dominio y tildan de "dictadores" a aquellos gobernantes que no siguen su lìnea, que plantean políticas independientes. Ellos invaden y toman injerencia sobre las políticas de los países que tildan de "dictadores y/o terroristas". Todo por intereses propios. Para adueñarse de sus recursos y su territorio. Los atacan, les meten sanciones, los ponen en listas negras como hacen ustedes y luego se meten en su política interna, les dicen lo que tienen que hacer (como implícitamente hacen ustedes también). Si no aceptan tienen que prepararse para la guerra. Menos mal que nosotros somos pods y no países.

Canek, ¿quién te dió el tìtulo de juez e interventor de todos los pods de Diaspora* del mundo?. ¿Qué autoridad moral pensás que tenés para hacerlo? Quién sos vos para decirme a mi cómo debo actuar en la administración de mi pod? ¿Acaso colaboraste en algo?

Alguien en tus comentarios dijo que debíamos hacer un pod de comunistas y meternos todos ahí. Como un gheto. Linda idea tienen ustedes de federación y de intercambio. Se las dan de libres y son de los más censuradores que existen. Te propongo lo contrario. Ya que amás tanto la "libertad de expresión" de los derechosos y fascistas, montate tu propio pod, llenalo de fascistas y pedófilos, y dejame de joder...
Te aseguro que los usuarios de Diaspora a nivel general vamos a estar más felices si los fascistas dejan de molestarnos.

Tu listita negra no tiene ningún efecto en Diaspora, Schindler.

Deutsche Regierung stemmt sich gegen Whistleblower


Angesichts mehrerer Skandale wie dem Facebook-Datenleck oder den Panama Papers, die erst durch Whistleblower öffentlich geworden waren, legte die EU-Kommission im April 2018 einen Vorschlag zum besseren Schutz der Hinweisgeber vor. Dieser sieht für Whistleblower zunächst jedoch einen internen Beschwerdeweg innerhalb der eigenen Firma vor, ehe sie sich im zweiten Schritt an eine öffentliche Behörde wenden können. Danach erst sollen sie sich an die Öffentlichkeit – etwa an Medien – richten können.

„Justizministerin Katarina Barley blockiert den bestmöglichen Schutz für Whistleblower in Europa“, sagte der Grünen-Europaabgeordnete Sven Giegold der dpa. Barley müsse den Weg für vollen Schutz freimachen – unabhängig vom internen Beschwerdeweg. Am Dienstagabend scheiterte die Suche nach einem Kompromiss zwischen EU-Staaten und Parlament, kommende Woche wollen die Unterhändler abermals verhandeln.

Article content:




[1]Facebook will drive a hard bargain with influencers and artists judging by the terms of service for the social network’s Patreon-like Fan Subscriptions feature that lets people pay a monthly fee for access to a creator’s exclusive content. The policy document attained by TechCrunch shows Facebook plans to take up to a 30 percent cut of subscription revenue minus fees, compared to 5 percent by [2]Patreon, 30 percent by YouTube, which covers fees and 50 percent by Twitch.

Facebook also reserves the right to offer free trials to subscriptions that won’t compensate creators. And Facebook demands a “non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use” creators’ content and “This license survives even if you stop using Fan Subscriptions.”

Distrust of Facebook could scare creators away from the platform when combined with its significant revenue share and ability to give away or repurpose creators’ content. Facebook has consistently shown that it puts what it thinks users want and its own interests above those of partners. It cut off game developers from viral channels, inadequately warned Page owners their reach would drop over time, decimated referral traffic to news publishers and, most recently, banished video makers from the feed. If Facebook wants to win creators’ trust and the engagement of their biggest fans, it may need a more competitive offering with larger limits on its power.

“Facebook reached out to offer Hard Drive early access to a ‘fan subscription’ product” [3]tweeted Matt Saincome, who also runs satirical news site [4]The Hard Times. “I asked my editors about it and the complete distrust amongst our team was kinda funny. We read through the terms and found a couple things that were hilarious when compared to Patreon’s 5% . . . Up to 30% and the rights to all our stuff? From the people who let us build an audience on their platform before pulling it out from under our feet? Hilarious. Here’s a crazy alternative: let people who signed up to see our content see it and then we can monetize that hahah.”

Instagram is refocusing on creators too. Instagram’s Android app reveals the prototype of a feature that lets users switch their profile into a Creator Account, similar to the [5]Business Profiles it launched in 2016. Instagram first told [6]The Hollywood Reporter about Creator Accounts in December, but now it’s showing up in the code. Reverse-engineering specialist [7]Jane Manchun Wong generated this screenshot showing the option for Creator Accounts to hide their contact info or profile category. Fellow code digger [8]Ishan Agarwal gave TechCrunch an exclusive look at the Instagram code that shows the Creator Accounts are “Best for public figures, content producers, artists, and influencers.” Creator Accounts give users “more advanced insights and reach more people with promotions,” “more growth tools” and “a new inbox that makes it easier to manage message requests and connect with fans.”

Trading control for subscribers

Facebook began testing [9]Fan Subscriptions a year ago to give creators a financial alternative to maximizing ad views after watching the rise of Patreon, which now has 3 million patrons who’ll pay 100,000 artists, comedians, models and makers more than $500 million this year. This month Facebook expanded the test to the U.K., Spain, Germany and Portugal to allow users to pay $4.99 per month to a creator for exclusive content, live videos and a profile badge that highlights them as a subscriber. While Twitch owns gamers, YouTube rules amongst videographers and Patreon is a favorite with odd-ball creators, Facebook may see an opportunity to popularize Fan Subscriptions internationally and turn mainstream consumers into paid supporters.

The terms for Fan Subscriptions are not publicly available, and only visible on Facebook’s site to Pages it’s invited to test the feature. But TechCrunch has published the full policy document below.

Thankfully, Facebook isn’t taking a cut of Fan Subscription revenue during the test phase, and creators get to keep 100 percent of the money paid by any patrons it signs up before the official launch. Facebook tells me that it hasn’t finalized its percentage cut, though the terms permit it to take as much as 30 percent. That would qualify, given Facebook tells me its rake will be in line with industry standards and creators will retain the majority of their earnings.

But whatever cut it takes will be after processing fees and the 15 to 30 percent tax Apple and Google levy on iOS and Android in-app purchases. We’ll see if Facebook tries a workaround that pushes users to their mobile browser where it can take their subscription money tax-free. And if Facebook decides it want to give users a free one-month trial or discount to any creator, they can’t stop it even if that lets people download all their exclusive content and then cancel without ever paying.

But what’s sure to raise the most hairs is the clause about “Supplemental Data” that gives Facebook a license to display a creator’s content as they might expect, but also a royalty-free license to use it however they want, even after a creator abandons Facebook Fan Subscriptions. A Facebook spokesperson confirmed that Supplemental Data does in fact cover all content provided by the creator. They claim it’s so if a creator made a custom fan sticker, a subscriber could use it in their own Facebook post, but the rule gives Facebook vast power beyond that. Patreon has a similar clause, but gets the benefit of the doubt in a way Facebook doesn’t after so many scandals.

Facebook’s spokesperson claimed that the Supplemental Data terms were similar to Facebook’s standard terms, but the normal Facebook terms say “You can end this license any time by deleting your content or account.” Not so with Fan Subscriptions. I don’t expect Facebook is going to try to outright steal and resell creators’ content, but it will have jurisdiction to use their art however it wants to fuel its war with Patreon, [10]Twitch and YouTube.

Creators will have to decide whether access to Facebook’s 2.3 billion users is worth the platform risk of building a following somewhere they don’t control and that has other business priorities. If Facebook’s strategy suddenly veers away from Fan Subscriptions, it could be hard for creators to score new signups or retain their old ones. At least with a dedicated site like Patreon, creators know the platform can’t abuse them without the threaten of ruin.

Here’s the full Terms of Service for Facebook’s Patreon competitor Fan Subscriptions:

Fan Subscriptions creator terms

The fan funding feature (“Fan Subscriptions”) allows Facebook users to support their favorite pages, creators, group administrators, gamers, or others (“Pages”) through a monthly subscription with Facebook (“Subscription”) that gives those people (“fans”) access to digital content offered by Pages, such as exclusive digital content, fan recognition, and merchandise discounts. These Terms (“Terms”) govern how Pages use Fan Subscriptions.

With regard to your use of Fan Subscriptions, you agree to the following:

1. Your use of the Platform with respect to Fan Subscriptions is subject to, and you agree to comply with, the Platform Policy currently available at [11]https://developers.facebook.com/policy/.
2. Your use of Fan Subscriptions to offer digital content and/or services to Facebook fans is subject to, and you agree to comply with the (a) Monetization Eligibility Standards currently available at [12]https://www.facebook.com/help/publisher/169845596919485, and (b) Content Guidelines for Monetization currently available at [13]https://www.facebook.com/facebookmedia/get-started/monetization_contentguidelines. You agree to follow any additional instructions and/or technical documentation we provide to you for Fan Subscriptions.
3. You will provide accurate information to fans in connection with your use of Fan Subscriptions, including but not limited as part of any digital content or services you choose to offer to them. You must clearly and conspicuously disclose all material terms regarding your offer and the nature of content or services you will provide to fans once they choose to subscribe. You agree to comply with all laws applicable to your use of Fan Subscriptions.
4. You confirm that the content you offer via Subscription does not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of any third party and that you have secured all rights necessary to distribute, copy, display, publicly perform, or otherwise use the content.
5. You will not use, incorporate, or provide any music or physical goods in connection with your use of Fan Subscriptions without FB’s prior written approval (email is sufficient).
6. You will not offer discounts on physical goods that exceed 80 percent of the offered goods’ retail value.
7. Your fans’ Subscriptions may be processed as payments to Facebook via Apple’s In-App Purchase or Google’s In-App Billing services, which are subject to Apple’s and Google’s separate payment terms and conditions. Apple and Google may charge Facebook a revenue share and/or other fees for such payment services according to their respective terms and conditions. FB will pay you a revenue share calculated as a percentage (“Your Share”) of what’s left after deduction of those fees/charges and of any other fees or taxes incurred by Facebook. As a the date of these Terms, Your Share of that net revenue is 100%. However, Facebook may in the future change these Terms such that Facebook keeps a revenue share of up to 30%. We will give 30 days’ notice of any such change.
8. Facebook reserves the right to offer discounted and free trials for fans from time to time in our discretion, whether to incentivize Subscription sign-ups or otherwise. Where we do so in relation to your Fan Subscriptions, your revenue share will be reduced accordingly: we only pay you a revenue share based on the amounts fans actually pay (less fees and taxes we incur).
9. If you have accurately completed and timely provided to FB any forms or documentation that FB reasonably determines are required to set up payment to you, and subject to and only in the event that you are in compliance in all respects with these Terms, payment of any net amounts FB receives from Apple and Google for Subscriptions made by your fans during your use of Fan Subscriptions will be on a monthly basis, within approximately 60 days after the end of the applicable month. Facebook will not be responsible for any subsequent fees applied by your financial institution to complete payment of the Monthly Fee to you. Furthermore, in the event the payment due to you would be less than One Hundred U.S. Dollars ($100.00), Facebook reserves the right to roll such payment over month to month until such payment threshold is met, at which time Facebook will make the applicable payment to you. Facebook also reserves the right to set off and/or withhold any amounts that Facebook reasonably considers are or are likely to be payable by you to Facebook under these Terms (including under any indemnities).
10. .If you are providing (or allowing us to access) any data, content, or other information in connection with your use of Fan Subscriptions (collectively, “Supplemental Data”), then you grant us (and our affiliates) a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use such Supplemental Data. This license survives even if you stop using Fan Subscriptions. You are responsible for obtaining the necessary rights from all applicable rights holders to grant this license.
11. You are responsible for paying any applicable taxes owed with respect to any amounts you receive through your use of Fan Subscriptions. Facebook will charge you taxes with respect to such amounts if it is required to do so under applicable law.
12. .Facebook can terminate or suspend your use of Fan Subscriptions at any time in our sole discretion, and we may change or stop offering Fan Subscriptions at any time in our sole discretion. In no event will we be liable in any way for terminating or suspending your use of Fan Subscriptions, for the discontinuation of Fan Subscriptions, for the removal of or disabling of access to content, or for the withdrawal of the content or Fan Subscriptions.
13. .If you change what’s included in a Subscription in a way that could be considered material, you must give fans reasonable prior notice such that they have a reasonable opportunity to cancel their Subscriptions if they so choose, with the change only taking effect after their next Subscription fee payment.
14. .If you are using Fan Subscription on behalf of a third party (including, but not limited to, as an agent or representative of a Creator), you represent and warrant that you have the authority as agent of such party to use such features on their behalf, agree to these Terms, and hereby bind such party to these Terms. You agree to indemnify and hold Facebook harmless from any claims, suits, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses resulting from your breach of the Terms. If you are accepting these Terms as admin of Facebook Business Manager for your business, these Terms shall apply to Content on all Facebook Pages and profiles owned or operated by your business at the time of acceptance and thereafter.
15. .By using the Fan Subscriptions feature, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically any important information regarding your use of Fan Subscriptions, including without limitation as to Your Share and any payments. We may also provide notices to you by posting them on our website, or by sending them to an email address or street address that you previously provided to us. Website and email notices shall be considered received by you within 24 hours of the time posted or sent; notices by postal mail shall be considered received within three (3) business days of the time sent.
16. .Facebook reserves the right to update these Terms from time to time. If any change to these Terms will materially disadvantage you, or materially affect the availability of the Subscription, we will provide you with notice before the changes become effective and you can choose to cancel your Subscription. Your continued use of this feature constitutes acceptance of those changes.
17. .Fan Subscriptions is part of the “Facebook Products” under Facebook’s [14]Terms of Service (“Facebook Terms”), and your use of Fan Subscriptions is deemed part of your use of Facebook Products. In the event of any express conflict between these Terms and the Facebook Terms, these Terms will govern solely with respect to your use of Fan Subscriptions and solely to the extent of the conflict. These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with Facebook. Facebook reserves the right to monitor or audit your compliance with these Terms and to update these terms from time to time, and your continued use of Fan Subscriptions constitutes acceptance of those changes.

Conservative Answer to Facebook Launches Tomorrow


I created an account and can tell you it is very cool. Lots of pro-American and Christian posts on here. Pro-Trump posts too! I feel like the community is very welcoming. It is highly similar to Facebook, and the site is faster for sure.

How can Federation users post more safely?


You know how it goes. We find a great story online and we want to share it with our supporters or feature it in our feed with appropriate hashtags for maximum reach.

But do we check the website featuring the story for privacy before we post?

When we embed a link by selecting the OEmbed box (often ticked by default) this displays an image or video on our post from the website we’ve featured.




They may look cool, but these images can contain beacons or other trackers. Embedded trackers also load into the browsers of any user who scrolls down the public feeds.

Should we ensure the website is safe before linking to it?


Actually some do. Posts that don’t feature a website’s images (with the OEmbed box unchecked as below) can actually protect Federation users from a serious amount of surveillance.

Some thoughtful users actually reproduce the article’s main points in their post, to protect their readers from visiting the site itself. They usually supply a link to the original content if one wants more detail and perhaps is protected with tracker blockers. So how do we know a site we recommend is safe?

Here are some privacy tips:


• Consider checking the page’s security/privacy before linking to it.

Using Tor, or a beefed-up Firefox fork or version (for detecting digital fingerprinting), and/or Disconnect, NoScript or Ublock Origin add-ons to reveal a multitude of trackers.

• There is usually more than one website featuring the same story. Consider picking the website with the least trackers and digital fingerprinting.

• Issue a warning in your post about any of the site’s surveillance methods and privacy issues you’ve detected.

• Embedding a picture/video could also make users vulnerable. Consider unchecking the OEmbed box.




In the next post I’ll give examples of a number of websites with low privacy and excessive trackers, commonly featured in the public feeds.

On the misery of Facebook's moderators


Returning to her seat, Chloe feels an overpowering urge to sob. Another trainee has gone up to review the next post, but Chloe cannot concentrate. She leaves the room, and begins to cry so hard that she has trouble breathing.

It is an environment where workers cope by telling dark jokes about committing suicide, then smoke weed during breaks to numb their emotions. It’s a place where employees can be fired for making just a few errors a week — and where those who remain live in fear of the former colleagues who return seeking vengeance.

One auditor walks the floor promoting the idea that the Earth is flat. A former employee told me he has begun to question certain aspects of the Holocaust. Another former employee, who told me he has mapped every escape route out of his house and sleeps with a gun at his side, said: “I no longer believe 9/11 was a terrorist attack.”

Read on for further information. This is incredibly... Mind-numbing, horrifying, inhumane altogether.

Companies like Facebook should not be allowed to behave like ‘digital gangsters’ in the online world, considering themselves to be ahead of and beyond the law


--- Final report from the UK Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee’s 18-month investigation into disinformation and fake news

Democracy is at risk from the malicious and relentless targeting of citizens with disinformation and personalised ‘dark adverts’ from unidentifiable sources, delivered through the major social media platforms we use every day.

We need new independent regulation with a tough powers and sanctions regime to curb the worst excesses of surveillance capitalism and the forces trying to use technology to subvert our democracy.

The 108-page report:
* Accuses Mark Zuckerberg of contempt for parliament in refusing three separate demands for him to give evidence, instead sending junior employees unable to answer the committee’s questions.
* Warns British electoral law is unfit for purpose and vulnerable to interference by hostile foreign actors, including agents of the Russian government attempting to discredit democracy.
* Calls on the British government to establish an independent investigation into “foreign influence, disinformation, funding, voter manipulation and the sharing of data” in the 2014 Scottish independence referendum, the 2016 EU referendum and the 2017 general election.

Apple, Google have apologized for privacy issues but Facebook is just sorry they got caught


I closed my FB account 5 years ago when I found out that they were tracking all my activities via share scripts on various pages, even when I wasn't using it.

Had to open an account with them again because of my volunteer work and the fact that all the members communities are there.

Right now I have blocked all the known FB sites on my router and only accessing FB via specific user ID and profile on Firefox which connects to the web via a VPN.

I am really sick and tired of their crap. The whole company is based on profiling the users and selling the data to the highest bidder.

Come #Facebook distrugge la privacy
Il social, infatti, ha segretamente pagato alcuni utenti per installare un’applicazione, Facebook Research, che informa l’azienda riguardo a tutto quello che fanno sul proprio telefono, dalle applicazioni installate (e quello che viene fatto all’interno di esse) al registro delle chiamate. Tecnicamente, l’aspetto più controverso è che l’applicazione, che funziona come una VPN, aveva i permessi per accedere al root del traffico di rete.

A "gold standard" study finds deleting Facebook is great for your mental health

“Deactivation caused small but significant improvements in well-being, and in particular on self-reported happiness, life satisfaction, depression, and anxiety."

@Gargron I am torn on this one, though of course it's your decision and I respect it. I joined here because I saw mastodon.social as the default instance if you will. As platforms like #Facebook and #Twitter are free for anyone to register on, I figured this would be the standard here as well. I am curious if registration will ever reopen once more.


 

Google, Facebook, and Microsoft sponsored a conference that promoted climate change denial

This is an interesting initiative!


Being a Facebook-Free Business means your customers can trust that you aren’t collaborators with the Facebook machine. That when you spend your money with a Facebook-Free Business, none of that money will find its way back to Facebook’s coffers.

The rules are pretty simple. Being Facebook Free means:

- We do not buy advertisement on Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, or WhatsApp.
- We do not use Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, or WhatsApp to promote or represent our business or to communicate with our customers.
- We do not assist Facebook in its data collection regime through use of Facebook social Like buttons or by offering Facebook logins.

Thanks to @Debacle for the pointer!

Thread.

This isn't happening because of market inefficiencies or consumer preferences or social value. It's happening because two very large companies have taken the advertising revenue that journalism outlets rely on and replaced it with nothing.
