Selfie harm from Rankin

“Tanguy noted that Kim Kardashian has around 50 times more Instagram followers than the Louvre museum. « It’s time to stop consuming daily the visual content of [social media influencers] and move over to a more inspiring visual diet, » she said. As Rankin notes, however, it’s not all bad on Instagram. « Please note: The majority of subjects preferred their original image, » he said.”

“Sadly, it’s nothing new that smartphone companies use DSLR photos to fake phone camera’s capabilities. Samsung did it before, so did Huawei. And I believe many more brands do it, we just haven’t found out about it yet. I’m pretty sure that Samsung at least bought my photo legally, even though I haven’t received the confirmation of it. But regardless, this is false advertising.”

Facebook Fake Accounts

“These numbers are largely affected by external factors, such as cyberattacks that increase fake accounts on Facebook. Bad actors try to create fake accounts in large volumes automatically using scripts or bots, with the intent of spreading spam or conducting illicit activities such as scams. The numbers can also be affected by internal factors, including the effectiveness of our detection technology. In Q2 2018, we disabled 800 million fake accounts, up from 583 million in Q1 2018. In Q3 2018, we disabled 754 million fake accounts, a modest decrease from the previous quarter. Most of these accounts originated from commercially motivated spam attacks, and they were removed swiftly. ”

“Est-ce que les Etats-Unis ont repéré, durant la campagne actuelle pour les élections de mi-mandat, une activité de propagande étrangère semblable à celle de 2016 ? Il y a encore de l’activité. Cela n’est pas forcément pour appeler directement à voter pour le candidat X ou le candidat Y, mais ils essaient encore de diviser les Américains sur les questions sociales, de race… parce que ça marche, et cela ne coûte pas cher : si vous additionnez tout ce qu’ils ont dépensé pour interférer dans l’élection américaine et en Europe, cela coûte moins qu’un avion de combat F-35. C’est un sujet dont l’Occident doit prendre conscience.”

“EU versus Disinformation, a site that specializes in dissecting pro-Kremlin disinformation, reports that In The Now is Kremlin-owned. “In The Now successfully brings elements of Russia’s ongoing disinformation campaign to large international audiences,” the site says. “The majority of those who are targeted will not suspect that what they see and share is in fact Russian state propaganda.””

“The going rate for having an Amazon employee delete negative reviews is about $300 per review, according to people familiar with the practice. Brokers usually demand a five-review minimum, meaning that sellers typically must pay at least $1,500 for the service, the people said […].
One Chinese Amazon seller said competition on the website had become so heated that he is tempted to use illicit tactics to gain an edge. “If I don’t do bad things, I will die,” he said of his business”.

“One advantage Facebook has is that we have a principle that you must use your real identity. This means we have a clear notion of what’s an authentic account. This is harder with services like Instagram, WhatsApp, Twitter, YouTube, iMessage, or any other service where you don’t need to provide your real identity. So if the content shared doesn’t violate any policy, which is often the case, and you have no clear notion of what constitutes a fake account, that makes enforcement significantly harder. Fortunately, our systems are shared, so when we find bad actors on Facebook, we can also remove accounts linked to them on Instagram and WhatsApp as well”.

“Mr. Vassilev, 32, does not provide the views himself. His website, 500Views.com, connects customers with services that offer views, likes and dislikes generated by computers, not humans. When a supplier cannot fulfill an order, Mr. Vassilev — like a modern switchboard operator — quickly connects with another. “I can deliver an unlimited amount of views to a video,” Mr. Vassilev said in an interview. “They’ve tried to stop it for so many years, but they can’t stop it. There’s always a way around.””
