Suicide Is Fine But No Freeing The Nipple?? Facebook's Leaked Guidelines Reveal Strange Positions On Sex & Violence!

Filed under: Tech TalkFacebookViral: News

no title

Facebook: where broadcasting your suicide is fair game, but don't even think about posting a nipple!

The social media giant apparently allows videos and pictures of violent deaths, animal abuse, and self-harm to be shared, according to leaked internal guidelines obtained by The Guardian.

The publication sifted through over 100 of the website's training manuals, spreadsheets, and flowcharts that show how the site polices its content — and it's pretty mind-boggling which type of content is allowed to stay up.

Disturbing posts like non-sexual child abuse or attempts to self harm are flagged as "disturbing" but are allowed to stay on the site because they "create awareness."

This policy doesn't stop people from live-streaming their suicides — an alarming epidemic seen from adolescents nationwide — because it "doesn't want to censor or punish people in distress."

Threats of violence, however, are a completely different matter. An actual threat to a public figure, like "someone shoot Trump" would be taken down — but a troll-ish threat like "snap a bitch's neck" is allowed to stay. Seems like a tricky line…

On Wednesday, the company announced it will be hiring 3,000 more employees (to add to the existing 4,500) worldwide following a growing number of users uploading graphic content of them injuring themselves or others.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained the move in a statement:

Donald Trump Plummets Over 200 Spots On Forbes' Billionaires List!

no title

It's all going downhill for Donald Trump.

The president's fortune has dropped by approximately $1 billion since last year (roughly the price of one election), which caused him to sink DEEP in Forbes' latest ranking of the world's billionaires!

Last year, the real estate mogul landed at the No. 324 spot, but now comes in as the world's 544th richest person.

While Trump's actual net worth is unknown due to his notorious refusal to reveal his tax returns, but has claimed it's "in excess" of $10 billion.

The decline in the Big Cheeto's net worth is due, according to Forbes, to a drop in the value of office space in Midtown Manhattan — and we're sure letting his sons Harry and Lloyd Donald Jr. and Eric run the "show" at Trump Tower isn't helping.

The rest of the list is pretty typical: Bill Gates once again tops the financial titans with a fortune of

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated??

Earlier this week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a video on his timeline where he unveils Jarvis (voiced by Morgan Freeman), an AI assistant he built for his family.

As seen in the clip (below):

In the video, the tech genius jokingly asks the robot to play "some good Nickelback songs" to which the digital butler replied:

"I'm sorry Mark, I'm afraid I can't do that… there are no good Nickelback songs."

Unfortunately, not everyone is laughing at this dig.

On Thursday, Avril Lavigne — who was married to NB frontman Chad Kroeger before separating in September 2015 — took to Twitter to criticize Zuckerberg's jab, which she considers a form of "bullying."

Study Shows Fake Election Stories Were Shared More On Facebook Than REAL News Coverage During The 2016 Race…

no title

Looks like Mark Zuckerberg dropped the ball on this one…

BuzzFeed News recently conducted a study that revealed completely FALSE news stories actually performed better on Facebook — through shares, reactions and comments — than those from legitimate sources during the 2016 presidential race.

According to the site's analysis, 20 of the top-performing fictional articles from hoax outlets and super skewed blogs racked up a combined total of over 8.7 million shares, comments, and reactions in the last three months before the election.

Meanwhile, 20 of the top-performing stories from 19 major news websites — including New York Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post, and NBC News — only earned about 7.3 million shares, reactions, and comments.

That's kind of messed up, to be honest.

In fact, Darmouth College political science professor Brendan Nyhan agrees, telling BuzzFeed:

"I'm troubled that Facebook is doing so little to combat fake news. Even if they did not swing the election, the evidence is clear that bogus stories have incredible reach on the network. Facebook should be fighting misinformation, not amplifying it."

What's also upsetting about this, is that 17 of the 20 best-performing fake stories were either pro-Donald Trump or anti-Hillary Clinton.

While we know we can't assume Hill lost the election because Facebook was allowing fake news stories to go viral, it is fair to point out that some people can be heavily influenced by stories shared on social media, whether they're real or not.

Facebook Thinks Everyone Died In The Wake Of Donald Trump's Win — Are YOU Affected By This Eerie Glitch?

Filed under: Tech TalkFacebookMark ZuckerbergScary!Viral: News

As post-election political rantings are taking over social media, Facebook is apparently trying to do population control.

A glitch on the social media site triggered memorial alerts at the top of many users' pages on Friday — including that of CEO Mark Zuckerberg!

The notices began to appear at around 3:45 p.m. EST and came complete with some heavy wording, for instance:

"Remembering Mark Zuckerberg. We hope people who love Mark will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate his life. Learn more about memorialized accounts and the legacy contact setting on Facebook."

Yikes!

The company hasn't explained just what caused the glitch — but after the apocalyptic week we just had, it seems like a social media rapture couldn't come at a better time.
