Troubling Tuesday

1a

Last week, a major censorship controversy erupted when Facebook began deleting all posts containing the iconic photograph of the Vietnamese “Napalm Girl” on the ground that it violated the company’s ban on “child nudity.” Facebook even deleted a post from the prime minister of Norway, who posted the photograph in protest of the censorship. As outrage spread, Facebook ultimately reversed itself — acknowledging “the history and global importance of this image in documenting a particular moment in time” — but this episode illustrated many of the dangers I’ve previously highlighted in having private tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google become the arbiters of what we can and cannot see.

Having just resolved that censorship effort, Facebook seems to be vigorously courting another. The Associated Press reports today from Jerusalem that “the Israeli government and Facebook have agreed to work together to determine how to tackle incitement on the social media network.” These meetings are taking place “as the government pushes ahead with legislative steps meant to force social networks to rein in content that Israel says incites violence.” In other words, Israel is about to legislatively force Facebook to censor content deemed by Israeli officials to be improper, and Facebook appears eager to appease those threats by working directly with the Israeli government to determine what content should be censored.

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Do you think it is right to have any government this heavily involved in the social media giant Facebook? Gathering information on millions, watching, judging, censoring? Just what the hell is going on here?

I don’t want to single out any particular religion here but what is up with the Zionista agenda? Having to monitor and dispense death to whomever they determine to be against them? What business it of theirs what people say, who are they to stand in judgement?

What are they afraid of?

The American taxpayers bestow billions upon them, the least they could do would be to behave their snoopy selves and quit minding everyone else’s business.

    Long comment wiped out by the stupid Android operating system. Walked 46 minutes today.

    I love FaceBook. That’s where I see what my friends think, etc. Doc, you haven’t acclimated to it. You still get out and about, lots of people to talk to. FB is my social spot, other than visiting stores for things I need, there’s no one to talk to.

    Quite the diversity of opinion here. I too participate at FB although after reading Glenn’s piece question I wonder why. Why contribute to a foreign governments World population monitoring scheme. Even more concerning is FB’s constant use of 3 year old posts I made which tells me there is a massive data tank storing all this for some reason, maybe to gather a dossier on Zionist adversaries for future use. Sal has been nipping at their heels regularly, I wonder how they view that.

    All social media sites need to identify their principals, foreign or domestic, to allow discerning individuals the choice whether to participate or not.

    We do not need to provide God’s self-chosenites, Palestinan baby killers, with our lives most sensitive information for their scrutiny, or maybe it’s just become so routine it doesn’t matter anymore, let them bleed so we can read.

      I couldn’t follow your train of thought there, Den. What you object to on FB, but if the place makes you uncomfortable, then close your account. FaceBook is probably not for you.
