“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”.

«Voters in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin, all states with tight races, were the most targeted. Specifically, voters in Wisconsin were targeted with gun ads about 72 percent more often than the national average. She also found that white voters received 87 percent of all immigration ads. It makes sense that swing states would be more heavily targeted overall leading up to an election. And Kim didn’t analyze the Russians trolls’ targets independently from the other unregulated ads, given the small sample size of 19 groups».

«Most Americans are understandably shocked by what they view as an unprecedented attack on our political system. But intelligence veterans, and scholars who have studied covert operations, have a different, and quite revealing, view. ‘If you ask an intelligence officer, did the Russians break the rules or do something bizarre, the answer is no, not at all,” said Steven L. Hall, who retired in 2015 after 30 years at the C.I.A., where he was the chief of Russian operations. The United States “absolutely” has carried out such election influence operations historically, he said, “and I hope we keep doing it.’»

«Selon CNN, l’entreprise russe Internet Research Agency que l’on retrouve derrière de nombreuses tentatives d’influence de la vie numérique américaine en 2016 aurait étendu sa sphère d’influence jusqu’aux joueurs de Pokémon Go. Le jeu de Niantic aurait servi de prétexte pour souligner les tensions entre la police et la communauté afro-américaine».

« Je ne connais pas les critères exactes de ce tri algorithmique mais il me semble qu’il privilégie des comptes populaires ou certifiés, et des contenus déjà largement diffusés et participe à l’extinction de la conversation des lambda.Bref, hier soir, c’est comme si l’agora s’était vidée du peuple. Et c’est triste : j’ai l’impression que quelque chose est mort dans Twitter ». – Xavier de La Porte
