FACEBOOK SUSPENDS OUTSPOKEN FLORIDA GUN SHOPS AFTER ORLANDO ATTACK


facebook-mobile3

Speaking to CBS12’s Kathleen Walter, “Florida Gun Supply” owner Andy Hallinan says Facebook removed his page Tuesday for allegedly engaging in “unauthorized sales of firearms.”

“I woke up this morning to my phone just lighting up. People couldn’t access my Facebook page,” Hallinan told CBS12. “I got phone calls from other gun shops.”

Steve Champion, owner of American “Gun and Pawn,” also had his account suspended over alleged violations regarding “unauthorized” firearm sales.

“I pulled (Facebook) up, and it says, ‘We unpublished your page,’” Champion similarly told CBS12.

According to Hallinan, who once called his gun shop a “Muslim-free” zone, the move by Facebook seems to be in response to both shops’ political speech – not to false claims about their business.

Glenn Beck Blasts Conservative Critics as ‘Progressives on the Right’; Says Facebook Leans Left Because Conservatives Don’t Use Social Media


Glenn-Beck-CPAC-2016-Flickr-640x480

Last week, Beck and 16 other conservatives met with Zuckerberg at a damage control meeting the tech billionaire called following reports from several Facebook whistleblowers that the site’s news curators actively suppress conservative stories in their “trending” news section while simultaneously boosting the signal of leftwing causes like Black Lives Matter.

Beck’s subsequent defense of Facebook and panning of his fellow conservatives at the meeting led some on the right to label him Zuckerberg’s “useful idiot.”

Tucker Carlson, who also attended the meeting, described Beck’s behavior as “the most extended assiduous suck-up I think I’ve ever seen a grown man commit.”

Carlson told Politico that Beck “acted like he was auditioning to be Mark Zuckerberg’s manservant.”

Beck fired back at Carlson this morning, accusing him of wanting to force “quotas” on Facebook, which, according to Beck, makes him a “progressive.”

“What [Tucker Carlson] is saying about what he said at the meeting is not true,” Beck stated. “It was quotas that he was talking about — quotas. Three percent of the population is Mormon. That was his quote — three percent. So I’m not saying that we go there that far, but shouldn’t it be representative of how many conservatives there are? Shouldn’t you hire that way? That’s a quota. Quotas don’t work. Quotas don’t work. And the only ones that believe that are progressives on the right and progressives on the left. And they’ve already exposed themselves. Progressives are who progressives are and they always will be.”

Carlson, however, claims that he was simply suggesting that Facebook hire news curators with a broader “diversity of views” in order to avoid the sort of leftwing bias they’ve been accused of. His suggestion is in keeping with decades of conservative media criticism and activism from respected organizations like Brent Bozell’s Media Research Center and Breitbart’s own Big Journalism.

Beck also argued that Facebook has a leftwing bias simply because it is “by design a social platform,” and he believes people on the left use social media more than conservatives.

CENSORSHIP SUMMIT: Facebook Meets with China’s Propaganda Chief


facebook-1024x535

We’ve talked about Facebook’s pro-censorship stance (see Facebook Has Officially Begun Censoring Germany… and Mark Zuckerberg Caught On Mic Saying Facebook Will Delete Negative German Govt. Posts). So, it really shouldn’t be shocking to see their propaganda chief, Mark Zuckerberg, meet with his Chinese counterpart Liu Yunshan.

Mark Zuckerberg has held a rare meeting with China’s propaganda chief amid a crackdown by the Beijing authorities on the use of the internet.

Liu Yunshan told Zuckerberg that he hopes FB can share its experience with Chinese companies to help “internet development better benefit the people of all countries”, the official Xinhua news agency reported. Zuckerberg was in Beijing to attend an economic forum.

China has called for the creation of a global internet “governance system” and cooperation between countries to regulate internet use, stepping up efforts to promote controls that activists complain stifle free expression.

Facebook and other western social media companies including Twitter are banned in China. Zuckerberg has long been courting China’s leaders in a so far futile attempt to access the country with the world’s largest number of Internet users — 668 million as of last year.

Facebook’s Next Algorithm Will Help You ‘Break the Ice’ with Strangers in Real Life


Imagine you’re at your local coffee shop, browsing the Internet. You decide to login, and after doing so, you realize you have a new friend request. You don’t know the person, but the face seems familiar. Casually glancing around the coffee shop, you suddenly see the face of the user.

You have just experienced Facebook’s forthcoming algorithm, which will attempt to use patented data mining tools to use location-based resources to connect users who frequently visit the same location.

A recent patent Facebook filed describes the plurality of factors that will facilitate their new ‘ice breakingalgorithm:

The plurality of factors can include at least one of an inferred locational proximity between the first user and the second user, a frequency of inferred meetings between the first user and the second user, a duration of each of the inferred meetings between the first user and the second user, or a pattern of occurrences of inferred meetings between the first user and the second user.”

In other words, Facebook will track IP addresses and device signatures on public Wi-Fi networks in order to determine how often two different people are in the same locality and how much time they spend there.

According to the patent, Facebook’s algorithm will employ broadcast triggers that include gyroscopes, accelerometers, and motion processors to track a variety of movements occurring on the Wi-Fi network. These movements include stationary patterns, walking, running, and vehicle-riding.

Facebook describes another example of the algorithm in action:

Facebook’s Next Algorithm Update will be Ice Breaking

Has this ever happened to you that you see the same girl every time you walk in to the coffee shop, but, never had a chance to talk to her or ask her name? I have seen this happening to a lot of guys, including me!

It’s never easy to break the ice. Especially when you don’t even know her name, have no information of interesting conversational topics to begin with. And to top it off, your dose of confidence is kissing the floor while you’re overwhelmed with her cuteness.

You feel like approaching Kim Jong Un. And the café, well of course, the North Korea. A hell tensed situation. Well Facebook seems to have an axe to break this ice.

Really, you ask? Hell yeah!

Facebook is well-known for its amazing yet scary data mining algorithms that suggest you friends. It compares all the information you offer to suggest you connections. For example, you see people from your high school, from the same living area, your interests, mutual friends, and even people from other networks as well in suggestions.

In addition to that, Facebook has taken a step ahead in guessing who can become your friend from the places you often go.

And even when you don’t know their names or haven’t talked to them ever! Yes, you read that right. I am not kidding at all.

A recent patent filed by Facebook reveals the concept of suggesting connection based on mutual network connectivity options. If you and a person have been using the same Wi-Fi network for some time, you will see their faces appearing in People You May Know section.
