#FakeNews

It took me a few minutes to stop laughing when I read it. First, I would like to know how “fake accounts” are identified. Second, if there truly are 250 million of them (which I doubt), then it didn’t happen without help from Facebook. Third, What does “generated BILLIONS of shares” even mean?

So far, this is laughable, and we’re only at the end of the first paragraph. It continues…

#FreeMedia

Okay, they’re asking for four things:

  • Tell the Truth about fake users and fake news through independent audits
    • Who gets to define fake users and news?
  • Ban the Bots
    • Again, how does one identify a ‘bot?
    • A better question would be “Why are there fake bots?”
    • This is essentially asking for a safe space on the Internet.
  • Alert the Public when exposed to fake news and correct the record
    • This was the province of the fourth estate (the free press), before it became dominated by large corporation and was centralized.
    • Again, who decides what is fake an what is not, and what the corrected record should be?
    • Can you imagine?  Storm Alerts, Amber Alerts, Health Alerts, and now Fake News Alerts?
  • Fund an army of Fact-Checkers
    • And there it is–a government-funded army of fact-checkers to keep us “safe” from ‘bots and fake news?  No chance for abuse, here, is there.
    • Why do we need somebody else to tell us what is true or not?  The press had that job and they were corrupted by Big Business, but I’m sure it will be different, this time, right?

Don’t be fooled by this #FakeNews from @Avaaz.

Google Whisteblower on Twitter Bots and Gun Control

I would wager that half of all social media now consists of ‘bots. This is in addition to trading bots that control news cycles and stock markets.

If you’ve ever been swarmed after posting a controversial opinion, it has probably been a response by a team of ‘bots. Been in FB or Twitter jail? It was probably a ‘bot that complained about your post.

All the more reason to not feed the trolls.

One of my favourite responses to tolls: “Hello, 50-cent troll from China.”
