“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.”

“The U.S. Administration’s move to ban TikTok and WeChat for U.S. app stores is a direct attack on the Internet. It is an extreme measure that fundamentally undermines the foundation of the Internet. It’s especially a threat to the principles of openness and accessibility as well as its decentralized management. The Internet has no center. This type of top-down intervention is worrisome because – similar to efforts in China – it tries to impose a centralized management style that runs counter to how the Internet actually works.”

“La chronologie des fichiers s’étale d’août 1996 au 19 juin 2020, soit 24 ans de données. Emma Best, cofondatrice de DDoSecrets met en avant les notes internes contenues dans la base, qui détaillent la façon dont les policiers suivent les manifestants. D’autres documents contiennent les propos des forces de l’ordre sur le mouvement antifasciste, très critiqué par le président Donald Trump pour son rôle dans la contestation. De leur côté, les manifestants ont déjà identifié une note interne du FBI sur leur surveillance des réseaux sociaux qui leur permet d’avertir les forces de l’ordre locales sur les messages anti-police de certains individus. D’autres ont relevé un avertissement interne du FBI sur un groupe de suprémacistes blancs qui se faisait passer pour un groupe d’antifascistes.”

“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.”

Staying at Home During Coronavirus Is a Luxury

“Although people in all income groups are moving less than they did before the crisis, wealthier people are staying home the most, especially during the workweek. Not only that, but in nearly every state, they began doing so days before the poor, giving them a head start on social distancing as the virus spread, according to aggregated data from the location analysis company Cuebiq, which tracks about 15 million cellphone users nationwide daily.”

“Data provided to Earther by an SEO professional who asked to remain anonymous shows that Bloomberg is targeting more than 840 search terms that specifically reference climate with hundreds more that reference climate-adjacent terms. The results shows Bloomberg is open to welcoming deniers into the fold with ads purchased around terms like “is climate change a hoax” and“is climate change a hoax,” preppers (“best places to survive climate change”), and those concerned with related issues (“poverty and climate change”). At least some ads also target picking off voters interested in other candidates (“Elizabeth Warren climate plan”).”

“There is the next frontier in political advertising: your personal location data, collected from apps you’ve downloaded that then take this sensitive information and sell it to third parties — including political campaigns. Love it or hate it, digital strategists see this location data as part of the future of political campaigns, as candidates and advocacy groups harness your personal whereabouts and leverage it to try to win your support. One campaign might know if you’ve passed by one of their lawn signs recently. Another might track whether you’ve been in a specific Catholic church in Dubuque, Iowa. Forces behind Trump, who three years ago said he considered data to be “overrated” in politics, are exploring this next iteration of digital campaign tools. And with the incumbent president’s vastly superior resources and innate appetite for digital experimentation, many leading Democrats are concerned that it is the GOP — not the digitally pioneering party of Barack Obama — that is mastering Silicon Valley’s tricks ahead of what’s expected to be the most expensive US presidential election ever.”

Un enfant regardant un smartphone.

“Le temps d’écran n’est pas seulement excessif, il est extravagant. Aux Etats-Unis, on est à près de trois heures par jour à 3 ans, quatre heures quarante entre 8 et 12 ans et six heures quarante entre 13 et 18 ans. En France, les enfants de 6 à 17 ans passaient en moyenne, en 2015, quatre heures et onze minutes par jour devant un écran, selon l’étude Esteban menée par Santé publique France. D’autres données diffèrent un peu, mais elles sont toutes dans des fourchettes équivalentes, et, dans tous les cas, dans des proportions très élevées. Seulement 6 % à 10 % des enfants ne sont pas touchés.”
