Pourquoi tant d’animosité entre Facebook et Apple?

“Les relations se sont détériorées en janvier 2019, raconte The Telegraph, lorsque les 35000 employés de Facebook se sont réveillés un matin pour découvrir que toutes les applications développées pour le fonctionnement interne de l’entreprise ne marchaient plus: Leurs agendas, messageries, l’horaire des navettes et même les menus de la cantine étaient devenus inaccessibles. Et le développement de nouveaux produits a dû stopper net, les versions de test ne pouvant plus être mises à l’épreuve.
Apple, révolté par la révélation que Facebook avait payé des mineurs pour installer un VPN permettant d’aspirer leurs données, avait révoqué la veille au soir, les autorisations qui permettaient aux applications IOS du réseau social de fonctionner.
Puis, avec une nouvelle riposte en début d’année, Apple annonça l’introduction de la fonctionnalité «App Tracking Transparency (ATT)», qui obligera les applications mobiles à demander aux usagers leur permission avant de les suivre à la trace, gênant ainsi la récolte des données et le placement d’annonces personnalisées. Une démarche qui ferait baisser les revenus de Facebook de 50%.”

“The policies are significantly stronger than Facebook’s typical rules against misinformation, under which false claims are marked as such and suppressed by the curation algorithms, but are not removed from Facebook and Instagram entirely. The distinction, the company said, was because misinformation about Covid and Covid vaccinations “could lead to imminent physical harm”.”
The topic has a personal connection for the Facebook founder and chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg. His philanthropic organisation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, has embarked on a flagship effort to “cure all disease”, with a number of avenues of research being pursued, including a specific focus on vaccinations, through the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub.

“The UK launch in January will build on the success Facebook News has seen in the US, where we’ve found more than 95% of the traffic Facebook News delivers to publishers is new audiences that have not interacted with those news outlets in the past. Facebook is committed to supporting news organisations as they adapt to the changing digital world, and we are delighted to have so many partners working with us at this early stage. We’re in active negotiations to bring Facebook News to France and Germany as well, and we will continue to work with publishers in countries where market conditions and regulatory environments invite this kind of investment and innovation.”

“The hearing highlighted the partisan divisions over Silicon Valley’s recent crackdown on misinformation that have been evident throughout the election campaign, with Republicans accusing the companies of going too far in labeling or otherwise limiting the spread of falsehoods and Democrats demanding they do more, especially as Trump and his allies continue to use Twitter and Facebook to spread claims of election fraud without evidence.”

“Facebook took down a widespread network of pages tied to President Trump’s former chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon for pushing misinformation about voter fraud and delegitimizing election results. Bannon’s page also incurred penalties, including not being allowed to post content, but was not removed from Facebook.
The seven pages, which had a total of over 2.45 million followers and had pushed the “Stop the Steal” messaging that alleges election fraud, were flagged for Facebook by the liberal group Avaaz on Friday night.”

“Doctors and nurses at the hospital have been campaigning for the hospital to drop the name since it was first introduced in 2015, following a $75 million donation from Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, a pediatrician who used to work at the hospital. Over the years, hospital staff have expressed concern that the hospital is associated with Facebook and all of its problems and controversies—including, but not limited to, those related to privacy, unethical research, the dissemination of misinformation, hate speech, and disinformation.”

“On Friday, Mr Trump posted on Facebook and Twitter that he would respond to violent protests with military force, saying: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” While Twitter slapped a warning on the post and hid it from view for “glorifying violence”, Facebook left the message intact. Over the weekend, Facebook employees contrasted their company’s stance unfavourably with Twitter’s, which last week also labelled two of Mr Trump’s other tweets as potentially misleading.”
