“We know that automated activity designed to scrape people’s public and private data targets every website or service. We also know that it is a highly adversarial space where scrapers — be it malicious apps, websites or scripts — constantly adapt their tactics to evade detection in response to the defenses we build and improve. As part of our larger security strategy to make scraping harder and more costly for the attackers, today we are beginning to reward valid reports of scraping bugs in our platform.
Starting today, our data bounty program will also cover scraped datasets found online. We will reward reports of unprotected or openly public databases containing at least 100,000 unique Facebook user records with PII or sensitive data (e.g. email, phone number, physical address, religious or political affiliation). The reported dataset must be unique and not previously known or reported to Meta. We aim to learn from this effort so we can expand the scope to smaller datasets over time.”

L’artiste qui possédait le nom Metaverse a vu son compte supprimé quand Facebook est devenu Meta

“La logique voudrait que le réseau social contacte directement la ou le propriétaire du nom pour lui demander s’il serait d’accord pour le céder. Mais dans les faits, l’exemple de Thea-Mai Baumann montre qu’il est possible que des modifications soient faites sans en discuter avec l’internaute concerné. L’histoire de l’artiste australienne pourrait également servir d’avertissement à tous les créatifs qui utilisent Instagram et d’autres plateformes comme « galerie » où elles et ils sauvegardent leur art. Il convient toujours de rappeler que les réseaux sociaux sont des entreprises, qui ont le droit d’héberger ou non ce qu’elles souhaitent. En publiant des images, vidéos et photos sur un réseau social publiquement, il faut savoir qu’il est possible que celles-ci soient un jour inaccessibles — qu’il s’agisse d’une décision de la plateforme ou d’un bloquage automatique à la suite de trop nombreux signalements ou d’une détection algorithmique d’un contenu jugé problématique.”

Fifty percent of Facebook Messenger’s total voice traffic comes from Cambodia

“One of the most common reasons? Typing was just too hard.In Cambodia’s case, there has never been an easy way to type in Khmer. While Khmer Unicode was standardized fairly early, between 2006 and 2008, the keyboard itself lagged behind. The developers of the first Khmer computer keyboard had to accommodate the language’s 74 characters, the most of any script in the world. ”

Facebook’s facial recognition announcement doesn’t apply to the metaverse

“Several of Meta’s current projects show that the company has no plans to stop collecting data about peoples’ bodies. Meta is developing hyper-realistic avatars that people will operate as they travel through the metaverse, which requires tracking someone’s facial movements in real time so they can be recreated by their avatar. A new virtual reality headset that Meta plans to release next year will include sensors that track peoples’ eye and facial movements. The company also weighed incorporating facial recognition into its new Ray-Ban smart glasses, which allow the wearer to record their surroundings as they walk around, and Reality Labs, Meta’s hub for studying virtual and augmented reality, is conducting ongoing research into biometrics, according to postings on Facebook’s careers website.”
