Russian Content May Have Reached 126 Million — Facebook

Facebook denies secretly recording users' conversations for targeted advertising

In July 2016, the aftermath of a police shooting of an African-American man was broadcast live on Facebook. Those posts were in turn seen directly by 29 million Americans, who, by interacting with them, distributed the falsities throughout their own personal networks.

Facebook plans to begin labeling ads as paid content, so it's clear to users; and the company is regularly removing extremist interests - like KKK - from the advertising bucket. It's a game of whack-a-mole.

For Zuckerberg, connecting the world means bringing people together. "It's a total blind".

Graham says the purpose of the hearing is for the government to "figure out how we can help" the tech companies. "In these cases, we can't know if anyone was actually influenced toward violence, but this type of speech could increase that risk". Analysts predict $1.28 a share in earnings, up from $1.09 a year earlier.

In the testimony, Twitter said that it has detected 2,752 accounts "that we now believe are associated with the Internet Research Agency". The companies, in turn, want to use the hearings to portray themselves as eager to find a solution ahead of any bipartisan efforts to impose new regulations on their networks. "Facebook was less prepared to make decisions about acceptable speech", he says.

The group "Secured Borders" had the most violent rhetoric, some of it well after the presidential election. Perhaps some people forgot about a search they performed that was related to the conversation in qustion.

Call it ambition or naïveté. And this sophisticated targeting has been critical to Facebook's success.

It comes as the first indictments in a US probe into Russian attempts to sway the 2016 presidential elections were reverberating through Washington.

To do it, the company will need to shift the focus of its metrics.

Just before top lawyers from the three companies began their testimony before a Senate Judiciary subcommittee, Sen.

Weintraub and his team demonstrate on his computer how to tailor an ad for a narrowly targeted audience. It's hiring more than 4,000 new employees to weed out fake accounts and violators. The posts may have spread to three times that many people after the posts were shared, liked and followed by Facebook users, the company said.

Facebook's revelations around Russia have been surprising.

While a number of views were aired, Bloomberg notes Democrats on the panel tended to push for more responsibility and transparency from the companies in monitoring and disclosing misleading posts and ads, while several Republicans fretted the effect on free speech if Silicon Valley started censoring news content. "It's a hopeless exercise".

Facebook has denied evesdropping on app user's conversations to target adverts, following claims from users that they received suspiciously timed promotional messages. His firm's clients range from members of Congress promoting political campaigns to luxury brands marketing cars and handbags on Facebook. Facebook, along with Google and Twitter, are expected to testify before the committee on Wednesday on how foreign actors may have used social media to interfere with the election.

So for the time being, we must demand better.

Inside Facebook, there's a deep conflict. "And we are determined todo everything we can to address this new threat", he wrote. Facebook has already spent more than $8.4 million lobbying the government this year, according to federal disclosure forms.

"Facebook does not use your phone's microphone to inform ads or to change what you see in News Feed", it said.
