Facebook to ban two white nationalist groups after Guardian report  11/26/2019 Guardian: "Facebook will no longer allow Red Ice TV and Affirmative Right to use its platform, following a Guardian report on the continued presence of prominent white nationalist organizations on the site eight months after a promised ban. A Facebook spokesperson said on Tuesday that the company has now determined that Red Ice TV and Affirmative Right violate its policy against “organized hate”. The ban will include the pages of the Red Ice TV hosts Lana Lokteff and Henrik Palmgren, as well as their internet radio show, Radio3Fourteen."

Black Facebook employees complain racism, discrimination have gotten worse  11/10/2019 USA Today: "An anonymous memo alleging Facebook still has a problem with racial bias is circulating inside the company one year after a former employee complained of racism and discrimination there."

BLF leader Andile Mngxitama banned from Facebook for ‘racism’ quote  10/31/2019 Briefly, South Africa: "BLF leader Andile Mngxitama has been banned from Facebook for 30 days after he posted a quote on 'racism'. Mngxitama shared a quote on racism from a book by W.E.B Du Bois, The Citizen reported. The quote is about "double consciousness" and the BLF leader said South Africans are still suffering from it."

For Some Reason, We Can’t Find a Single Leftist Mark Zuckerberg Invited to His Dinners With Pundits From “Across the Spectrum”  10/25/2019 Intercept: "The same cynics might mention that Facebook’s first outside investor was Peter Thiel, who now serves on the company’s board — and is one of just two members of its compensation and governance committee. Thiel, an outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump, secretly funded a lawsuit that destroyed the news outlet Gawker. These cynical cynics would point out that, despite constant accusations from the right-wing media that Facebook “silences” conservatives, the right-wing media is wildly popular on Facebook. They’d say this is no surprise, since Facebook’s vice president for U.S. public policy is Joel Kaplan, a former aide to George W. Bush and current member of the board of Bush’s presidential museum. According to the Wall Street Journal, Kaplan has “wielded his influence to postpone or kill projects that risk upsetting conservatives.”"

Zuckerberg said Facebook helped Black Lives Matter. Activists disagree and are bracing for 2020  10/24/2019 CNN: "The Black Lives Matter Global Network, one of the movement's main organizing groups, has hired a firm to proactively monitor for disinformation and harassment campaigns targeting activists and on Thursday unveiled a new system to allow activists to flag suspicious accounts, the group told CNN Business. Across multiple social media platforms, the group says, it has found "tens of thousands of robotic accounts trying to sway the conversation" about Black Lives Matter."

En sólo 3 meses de 2018 Facebook eliminó 21 millones de publicaciones de “desnudos”, 2,5 millones con “discurso del odio” y eliminó o advirtió sobre 3,5 millones de “contenidos violentos”  5/25/2019 OBSERVACOM: "Facebook publicó su “Reporte de Transparencia” donde, por primera vez, brinda información sobre cómo implementa sus estándares corporativos de cumplimiento de sus términos de servicio para la remoción de contenidos o eliminación de cuentas de usuarios que realizó por decisión propia y no por exigencia de autoridades estatales o de terceros (reclamos de propiedad intelectual, por ejemplo)."

Grupos de activistas negros acusan a Facebook de censurar expresiones contra el racismo  5/7/2019 OBSERVACOM: "Desde OBSERVACOM, junto con otras organizaciones como ADC de Argentina e Intervozes de Brasil, venimos planteando la necesidad de una regulación “inteligente” para proteger la libertad de expresión en línea y garantizar una Internet libre y abierta. Sostenemos que las grandes plataformas de Internet tienen un rol de “gatekeepers privados” y que la creciente intervención de las grandes plataformas de Internet en los contenidos en línea tienen impactos negativos en la libertad de expresión mediante restricciones directas (censura por remoción o bloqueo de contenidos, incluyendo filtrado automático y previo) o indirectas (priorización o reducción de visibilidad) de contenidos legítimos de sus usuarios."

'Facebooking while black': Activists say their posts about racism are censored  4/25/2019 Yahoo: "Neil Potts, the public policy director of Facebook, indirectly addressed the accusations by black activists in 2018 when he acknowledged that Facebook often confuses commentary on racism and racist attacks on a “protected” group of people, including people of color. But the company is “exploring additional refinements to our hate speech policy that will perhaps help remedy some of these situations,” Potts said. To that end, Facebook is conducting research and working harder at fine-tuning its censorship practices and learning to recognize when marginalized users are “speaking to power.”"

Report: Facebook is punishing Black people for talking about racism (updated)  4/25/2019 Daily Dot: "In 2016, Shaun King, a vocal and somewhat controversial activist for the Black community, reportedly had his account suspended for a few hours in what Facebook claimed was “accidental.” Activist Leslie Mac had her account suspended in a similar fashion as Oluo. Another woman, Ayo Henry, told USA Today a video of her conversation with a white kid who had earlier hurled racial slurs at her was removed, despite having 2 million views."

Facebook while black: Users call it getting 'Zucked,' say talking about racism is censored as hate speech  4/24/2019 USA Today: ""I know from being inside Facebook that Facebook doesn’t take any action against the bad things that it has done unless it’s held publicly accountable," Luckie told USA TODAY. "I don’t want to say I felt a responsibility, but I guess I felt an ability to speak on behalf of all of these black employees.""

Activists Couldn’t Get Facebook to Tackle Its Discrimination Problem—Until the Russia Scandal Hit Media April 12, 2019 Activists Couldn’t Get Facebook to Tackle Its Discrimination Problem—Until the Russia Scandal Hit  4/12/2019 Mother Jones: "According to nearly 20 civil rights advocates and watchdogs who spoke to Mother Jones, a pattern emerged. Civil rights advocates would raise concerns with Facebook, the company would welcome them into a meeting, and nothing would come of it. “You can talk to them all day until you’re blue in the face about an issue,” says Shields, but nothing happens unless outside forces bring public scrutiny to Facebook. Now, those forces came in the form of the Russia scandal and the Cambridge Analytica revelations. Suddenly, Facebook was on the defensive. Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress was just two weeks away. “We knew this would be our one shot to get Mark Zuckerberg on the record to agree to a civil rights audit,” says Collins-Dexter. The success of years of advocacy by civil rights groups hung in the balance. They got to work."

Facebook lanzará tecnología con Inteligencia Artificial para detectar “porno-venganza”  3/18/2019 OBSERVACOM: "Después de que la red social sugirió a los usuarios que enviarán sus propias imágenes íntimas para que Facebook pueda identificar si la imagen ha sido compartida; muchos usuarios se opusieron a dicha idea debido al historial de fallas de privacidad que ha tenido el gigante de las redes sociales. La nueva táctica consiste en implementar esta tecnología que aún se encuentra en programa piloto, por lo que requiere que moderadores humanos terminen de revisar las imágenes para eliminarlas."

Facebook presentó propuesta para crear una “Junta de Supervisión” para poder apelar algunas de sus remociones de contenido  2/8/2019 OBSERVACOM: "“La junta estará compuesta por un cuerpo de expertos independientes que revisará las decisiones más desafiantes sobre contenidos de Facebook- focalizando en casos importantes que generan disputa. Compartirá sus decisiones en forma transparente y dará razones sobre ellas. La junta podrá revertir las decisiones de Facebook sobre si permitir o remover determinados posteos de la plataforma. Facebook aceptará e implementará las decisiones de la junta”, señala el comunicado de la red social."

Facebook Blocking Granma article "Venezuela is not alone"  2/3/2019 AfroCubaWeb Facebook: "This article has had its URL…/2019…/venezuela-is-not-aloneFINISHxxx blocked by Facebook. When you put the URL in Facebook Debugger in, you get "We can't review this website because the content doesn't meet our Community Standards. If you think this is a mistake, please let us know." Let 'em know. As you can see below, this started 1/26 and is still happening as of 2/3."

Facebook aumenta su capacidad de filtrado automático y previo para remover contenidos en aplicación de sus estándares comunitarios sobre discursos de odio y violencia  12/17/2018 OBSERVACOM: "En su primer reporte de transparencia donde da cuenta de los contenidos removidos por decisiones propias, Facebook había declarado que sólo en los primeros tres meses de 2019 había eliminado 2,5 millones de publicaciones con “discurso de odio”. Allí enfatizaba sobre el rol de los algoritmos en la detección de las violaciones a sus términos y condiciones como modo de afirmarse como “carreteras técnicas”, como mero transporte y no como editor de contenidos."

De Ministerio de la Verdad a Protectores de la Decencia en Internet: Facebook censurará contenidos de terceros simplemente por hablar de sexo  12/12/2018 OBSERVACOM: "Facebook introdujo una novedad a sus normas comunitarias. Con el argumento de contrarrestar la explotación sexual, dentro de lo que la empresa considera “contenidos cuestionables” incorporó la “solicitud de servicios sexuales”, con una definición tan amplia y vaga de los contenidos generados por terceros que implicará la censura tanto de contenidos sexuales explícitos como de alusiones implícitas o simplemente conversaciones sobre sexo, dibujos o arte con imágenes sexuales."

Your Comments Go Against Our Community Standards on Hate Speech  12/2/2018 Facebook: "White men are the USA's number one terrorists" [factually true]

Korryn Gaines, Color of Change and How We Know Facebook Doesn’t Care About Black People  11/30/2018 The Root: "Unbeknownst to Gaines, the Baltimore Police Department had secretly asked Facebook to take down the live video stream. Although Gaines’ video didn’t seem to violate any of their “community rules,” the social media behemoth complied. According to the Baltimore Sun, Facebook did not bother to send a warning to Gaines, nor did they send a message before they took her Facebook profile down. Gaines’ Instagram account (which is also owned by Facebook) also vanished. Moments after Facebook made Korryn Gaines’ only defense—her social media—disappear, the Baltimore Police Department rushed into her home and shot her to death, with a bullet hitting her five-year-old son in the cheek."

Facebook has a problem with black people, former employee charges  11/27/2018 USA Today: "That disenfranchisement of black people on Facebook is a direct result of how the few black employees who work there are marginalized inside the company, says Luckie, a digital strategist and former journalist who's also worked at Twitter and Reddit, as well as The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times. Black staffers at Facebook frequently complain of colleagues or managers calling them aggressive or hostile for how they share their thoughts, he says. A few black employees said they were dissuaded by managers from becoming involved in internal groups for black employees or doing “black stuff.” Black employees also told stories of being “aggressively accosted” by campus security."

Brazil election battle rages over Facebook's WhatsApp  10/20/2018 Reuters: "The WhatsApp allegations have energized Haddad, who said his party has witnesses saying Bolsonaro asked business leaders for cash to pay for the bulk messaging, which he described as soliciting undeclared campaign contributions."

Facebook `Delighted’ by War Room Response to Brazil Election  10/18/2018 Bloomberg: "The data scientists in the room told the policy experts that the malicious posts were targeting people in a certain area of Brazil, the poorer Northeast -- the only region carried by the leftist presidential candidate. The policy folks determined that what the posts were saying was against Facebook’s rules on inciting violence. And an operations representative made sure that all of that content was removed." [poorer and Blacker]

Facebook takes down ads mentioning African-Americans and Hispanics, calling them political  10/17/2018 USA Today: "While at the restaurant, which has paid millions to settle lawsuits over racial discrimination against black employees and diners, she joked on Twitter: "At Cracker Barrel 4 the 1st time. Looking at the sea of white folk in cowboy hats & wondering 'will they let my black ass walk out of here?'" Oluo says she was besieged by racist attacks on Twitter and Facebook. Twitter, she says, removed the tweets and shut down accounts. Facebook, on the other hand, suspended her account after she posted screenshots of some of the racist comments and threats."

Undercover cops break Facebook rules to track protesters, ensnare criminals  10/5/2018 NBC: "Over the next three years, dozens of them accepted his friend requests, allowing him to observe private discussions over marches, rallies and demonstrations. In public postings and private messages he described himself as a far-left Democrat, a “fellow protester” and a “man of color.” But Smith was not real. He was the creation of a white detective in the Memphis Police Department’s Office of Homeland Security whose job was to keep tabs on local activists across the spectrum, from Black Lives Matter to Confederate sympathizers."

Conservative Facebook Employees Form Group to Combat ‘Political Monoculture’  8/29/2018 National Review: "Brian Amerige, a senior Facebook engineer, prompted the group’s creation last week by writing a post on Facebook’s internal message board titled “We Have a Problem With Political Diversity.” “We are a political monoculture that’s intolerant of different views,” Amerige wrote in the post, which was obtained by the New York Times. “We claim to welcome all perspectives, but are quick to attack — often in mobs — anyone who presents a view that appears to be in opposition to left-leaning ideology.”"

US Government Admits It’s Making Fake Social Media Accounts to Spread Propaganda in Cuba  8/27/2018 Real News: "In its 2019 congressional budget justification report — which was first reported on by the Miami New Times — the US government’s Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) disclosed that it “is establishing on island digital teams to create non-branded local Facebook accounts to disseminate information.” The US government body noted that these “native pages increase the chances of appearing on Cuban Facebook users newsfeeds.” And it is not just Facebook where the US government will be creating these accounts. “The same strategy will be replicated on other preferred social media networks,” the BBG added."

U.S. Government Has Plans to Spread Hidden Facebook Propaganda in Cuba  8/21/2018 Miami New Times: "The documents don't explain what the feds mean by "non-branded" or "native" Facebook pages. But it's clear they would be meant to look like the pages of regular social media users in order to evade censors and persuade Cubans to read Martí propaganda. Regalado, who is usually accessible, did not respond to multiple messages from New Times seeking comment. But Nasserie Carew, a spokesperson for the Broadcasting Board of Governors, says the Facebook project "never got off the ground." That's an odd response because the plan has been referenced on budget justification documents for the past two years."

'Deeply Disturbing': For Second Time This Year, Facebook Suspends Left-Leaning teleSUR English Without Explanation  8/14/2018 Common Dreams: [FB also censors Black Lives Matter.] "Max Blumenthal, editor of The Grayzone Project, called Facebook's decision "deeply disturbing." He also noted that the platform recently banned, which like teleSUR offers a leftist perspective on Latin America, and raised alarm about Facebook's work with the Digital Forensic Research Lab, a project of the Atlantic Council, a NATO-backed, D.C.-based think tank:"

teleSUR English Removed From Facebook for Second Time  8/14/2018 teleSUR: "Meanwhile, followers and supporters of teleSUR English sent out tweets and posts on Facebook and Twitters and other social media websites denouncing the unexplained action by Facebook and arguing that such move is rooted into Facebook's own bias against outlets and news organizations that do not fit within the mainstream media landscape."

Was It Racist for Facebook to Take Down a Page Opposing the 'Unite the Right 2' March?  8/9/2018 Color Lins: "Facebook says it took down the "Say No to Unite the Right 2-DC" event page because of its ties to a Russian troll farm. Black Lives Matter DC activist April Goggans calls b.s."

Facebook caves in to pressure from conservatives  6/26/2018 CNN: "But instead of relying on a neutral third party, it enlisted former Arizona Republican Sen. Jon Kyl to lead the review, along with the conservative Heritage Foundation. So not only did Facebook legitimize unfounded claims by launching this new review, but with the selection of Kyl and Heritage, it all but guaranteed that the review will conclude that Facebook has anti-conservative bias. This in turn will put more pressure on Facebook to adopt the group's recommended policy changes."

Facebook’s liberal bias audit will be led by an anti-Muslim ex-senator  5/4/2018 Vice: "Retired Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl was regularly ranked among the country’s most conservative senators when he served from 1995 to 2013. He's rubbed shoulders with some of the most prominent anti-Muslim conspiracy theorists out there, including Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders and writer David Horowitz. He once famously said on the Senate floor that Planned Parenthood spends 90 percent of its funds on abortions (the real figure is 3 percent). He even has an author page on Breitbart, for a piece he wrote about Iran. And now Kyl will help decide whether Facebook is too liberal."

Why Facebook Is Desperate for Conservative Allies  5/4/2018 The New Republic: "Facebook is skirting the fundamental question before it, which is just how it should deal with the fact that it has become the easiest place to widely share misinformation on the internet. Real work on that subject would require expertise—and input from across the political spectrum. But real work isn’t what Zuckerberg is interested in."

Facebook is recruiting external advisers to tackle claims of bias on its platform  5/2/2018 The Verge: "Director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington legislative office Laura Murphy will lead the civil rights audit and advise Facebook, while Washington law firm Relman, Dane & Colfax, which specializes in litigating housing and employment cases, will audit Facebook’s internal operations and services. Meanwhile, former Arizona Republican Sen. Jon Kyl and Washington law firm Covington and Burling will audit alleged bias against conservative voices on the platform."

Facebook is letting white nationalist hate groups operate in the open  4/19/2018 Vice: "The VDare Foundation bills itself as “the premier outlet for patriotic immigration reform” and does a brisk business publishing stories like “Why can’t white men defend their women from black men?” and “Blacks may not be dog lovers, but they love pit bulls.” Founded by British-born journalist Peter Brimelow in 2007, VDare advocates for white rights and against diversity. The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the VDare Foundation as a hate group. VDare operates in the open on Facebook, where it has more than 10,000 followers and a “donate” button for anyone who wants to help fund the cause."

Fed up with Facebook, activists find new ways to defend their movements  4/10/2018 Techcrunch: "A supporter of a handful of protesters from the activist group the Raging Nannies who gathered outside of Facebook to demand greater data protection, Electronic Frontier Foundation Organizer Nathan Sheard, also raised concerns, “Facebook has a responsibility to its users.” He goes on to note that, “By default their [user] info should be kept secure.” Yet user information on Facebook remains extraordinarily vulnerable and far too available to third parties, without the consent of Facebook users."

The biggest Black Lives Matter page on Facebook is fake  4/9/2018 CNN: "For at least a year, the biggest page on Facebook purporting to be part of the Black Lives Matter movement was a scam with ties to a middle-aged white man in Australia, a review of the page and associated accounts and websites conducted by CNN shows."

Top Trump Staff Tied to Massive Network to Scam His Own Supporters  4/5/2018 Truth Examiner: "This network is of such vast size and engaged in such egregious practices, that I, a Trump supporter, and other Trump supporters who have reviewed my work have mutually agreed immediate investigations must be initiated against members of Trump’s inner circle, among others."

How Russian networks worked to boost the far right in Italy  3/1/2018 El Pais: " The Russian meddling machine has been focusing on Italy in recent months, conducting a disinformation campaign on the migration situation in order to drum up support for radical parties ahead of the general elections scheduled for Sunday. According to an analysis of 1,055,774 posts from 98,191 social media profiles to which EL PAÍS has had access, a network of anti-immigration and anti-NGO activists has been sharing links of stories published mostly by Sputnik, a media organization owned by the Russian government and operating in Italian among other languages, in order to propagate a false image of Italy. In this scenario, the country has been invaded by refugees who are to blame for unemployment and inflation, in the midst of a crisis made only worse by the passive attitude of pro-European politicians; ultimately, the European Union itself is held up as a culprit."

Russia exploited race divisions on Facebook. More black staffers, diversity could have have helped.  11/3/2017 USA Today: "In a heated moment during last week's hearings on Russian social media ads, Rep. Terri Sewell questioned whether the dearth of African Americans in Facebook's workforce contributed to the company's failure to catch Russian operatives using fake accounts to stoke racial tensions ahead of last year's presidential election. Displayed behind Sewell, a Democrat from Alabama, was one of the Russian-backed ads sharing a famous black-and-white photograph of the Black Panthers from 1968. The message: “Black Panthers were dismantled by U.S. government because they were black men and women standing up for justice and equality." "

Russian-bought Black Lives Matter ad on Facebook targeted Baltimore and Ferguson  9/28/2017 CNN: "The targeting issue is also important because, if it appears that the targeting was particularly sophisticated, questions may be raised about how the Russians knew where to direct their ads. Further, information about the targeting could help investigators determine whether or not there was collusion between these ad buyers and the Trump campaign."

Obama tried to give Zuckerberg a wake-up call over fake news on Facebook  9/24/2017 WaPo: "The software tool was given a secret designation, and Facebook is now deploying it and others in the run-up to elections around the world. It was used in the French election in May, where it helped disable 30,000 fake accounts, the company said. It was put to the test again on Sunday when Germans went to the polls. Facebook declined to share the software tool’s code name. Another recently developed tool shows users when articles have been disputed by third-party fact checkers."

Thoughts on Facebook’s 9 plans to curb election interference  9/21/2017 Tech Crunch: "Election meddling is Facebook’s next adversary, and it’s got a plan to attack it just like it did with fake news. Solutions to both these scourges come too late to prevent tampering that may have aided Donald Trump winning the presidency — but at least Facebook is owning up to the problem, working with the government and starting to self-regulate. Here’s the nine-point plan Zuckerberg has devised to combat election interference, plus our commentary on each strategy’s potential."

Exclusive: Russia Used Facebook Events to Organize Anti-Immigrant Rallies on U.S. Soil  9/11/2017 The Beast: "Russian operatives hiding behind false identities used Facebook’s event management tool to remotely organize and promote political protests in the U.S., including an August 2016 anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim rally in Idaho, The Daily Beast has learned."

Facebook’s Secret Censorship Rules Protect White Men From Hate Speech But Not Black Children  6/28/2017 Pro Publica: "A trove of internal documents reviewed by ProPublica sheds new light on the secret guidelines that Facebook’s censors use to distinguish between hate speech and legitimate political expression. The documents reveal the rationale behind seemingly inconsistent decisions. For instance, Higgins’ incitement to violence passed muster because it targeted a specific sub-group of Muslims — those that are “radicalized” — while Delgado’s post was deleted for attacking whites in general."

73 civil rights groups are urging Facebook to side with citizens over the government  11/2/2016 Quartz: "Desmond Upton Patton, assistant professor of social work at Columbia University who focuses on how young people of color navigate violence in their communities and on social media platforms, told Quartz in an interview that “Once that video goes viral, we move into a different space, a space of trauma and grief that becomes inescapable.”"

Cuando Facebook te bloquea por denunciar el racismo  9/14/2016 El Diario: ""Esto que tardé diez años en construir, esta comunidad de más de 800.000 personas... Pensar que apretando un botón se puede cerrar todo eso es un sentimiento extraño", cuenta el activista"

Facebook temporarily blocks Black Lives Matter activist after he posts racist email  9/12/2016 Guardian: "Shaun King – a senior justice writer for the New York Daily News, who frequently writes viral stories about police brutality – posted on his Facebook page a screenshot of an email that twice called him the N-word, saying “FUCK YOU N*****!” The technology corporation said it was blocking him from posting for 24 hours, saying he had violated its “community standards”."

Zuckerberg Tells Facebook Staff To Stop Crossing Out 'Black Lives Matter'  2/26/2016 NPR: "Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scolding employees for what he calls "several recent instances" of people crossing out "black lives matter" on signature walls at the company's headquarters and writing "all lives matter" instead. In a note posted to employees on a company announcement page, published by Gizmodo, Zuckerberg says he and several other leaders at the company have previously warned employees against doing this. "I was already very disappointed by this disrespectful behavior before, but after my communication, I now consider this malicious as well," Zuckerberg writes."

Get up, stand up  11/15/2015 Wired: "#BlackLivesMatter became a hashtag in the summer of 2013, when an Oakland, California, labor organizer named Alicia Garza responded on her Facebook page to the acquittal of George Zimmerman, the man who gunned down Trayvon Martin. Since then it has become the banner under which dozens of disparate organizations, new and old, and millions of individuals, loosely and tightly related, press for change."

Nos bloquea Facebook por denunciar el odio de Juventudes Canillejas  9/7/2015 Antirracistas Chamberí: "Chamberí en Lucha denuncia con pruebas. Dichas pruebas demuestran que hay nazis luchando por extender su odio y su violencia. Nazis que apoyan y ayudan al Hogar Social. Facebook no sólo mira hacia otro lado, sino que impide que luchemos contra su violencia."

Facebook censors pictures of children rallying against GMOs during global March Against Monsanto  5/26/2013 Natural News: "In one of the most devastating acts of destruction of its own credibility, Facebook engaged in yet more censorship of Free Speech with the suspending of an account that posted a photo of children rallying against Monsanto during today's global March Against Monsanto."
