OpenStreetMap is Having a Moment. The Billion Dollar Dataset Next Door | by Joe Morrison | Nov, 2020 | Medium

The open secret Jennings filled me in on is that OpenStreetMap (OSM) is now at the center of an unholy alliance of the world’s largest and wealthiest technology companies. The most valuable companies in the world are treating OSM as critical infrastructure for some of the most-used software ever written.
The four companies in the inner circle— Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft— have a combined market capitalization of over six trillion dollars. In almost every other setting, they are mortal enemies fighting expensive digital wars of attrition. Yet they now find themselves eagerly investing in and collaborating on OSM at an unprecedented scale (more on the scale later).

Yes, it’s all the #fault of Big #Oil, #Facebook and ‘the #system’. But let’s talk about you this time

When people reject the concept of shaming air #travel, #meat, cappuccinos, cruise ships, barbecues, cheese and/or #Uber, they mainly mean that it gives them an unpleasant #feeling. And yes, shame feels bad. But what if that’s exactly how it’s supposed to feel? Who says changing the #world should always be fun? Shame works because it’s unpleasant. Discomfort is the fuel of progress.

Don't loose posts from rare posters anymore!

I had a problem with #Friendica, compared to Faceshit. I constantly read posts by only the most frequently posting accounts. And others were just lost on the timeline.

So I made a little script. Idea is to group contacts by posting frequency into couple of groups created just for this purpose, like "rare", "very rare" and "frequent". I run this script from time to time to automatically move contacts between these groups.

https://github.com/loziniak/red-scripts/blob/master/friendica-regroup.red

Script is written in Red, you can check the language out here: http://www.red-lang.org/

@Friendica Support #fediverse #facebook
 
@Michael Vogel ja das ich zum #Beispiel von hier das ganze nicht zu meiner #mastodon #Instanz bekomme. Das nur mal eine von vielen und daher, weil jemand so eine Anfrage gestellt hat, die nicht schlecht ist und gleich auf mein Problem hinweist. So habe ich es dazu getan und habe darauf der die anfrage so erstellt habe, das er darauf achten sollte das kein Bieter streit vom Zaun brechen sollte, da ich finde in einer Demokratie alle genauso bewertet werden sollten. Ob jetzt Friendica oder Diaspora oder Mastodon oder sonstiges.
Alle haben dazu ein #Recht darin liegt auch das gewisse Extra bei den Distributionen, also die Weboberfläche.

Ich dabei bin ein leidenschaftlicher Debian Fan

So und da ich allen das Gleiche gebe ,so nutze ich eben alle diese Instanzen, doch das Teilen geht nicht, was mir jetzt schon des Öfteren aufgefallen ist. Genauso auch das es mit #Twitter und meinen Blogs nicht geht, +
#Facebook geht mir noch am #Hintern vorbei. Das ist für mich so und so für mich nur noch eine Spambude. Doch alles andere ist mir doch schon sehr wichtig und darauf habe ich in dem #Tuten und hier unter Friendica extra darauf #hingewiesen. Das #Teilen zwischen den #Instanzen und dem #Blog von mir nicht geht. Obwohl, die App wie hier auf dem Bild zu sehen
Bei twitter ist klar. Die API bekomme ich irgendwie ich nicht von Ihnen. Doch #Wordpress App müsste laufen und das zwischen den Instanzen genauso. Sprich #mastodon #diaspora friendica ec..

wo das ganze genauso wenig klappt. #friendica ist in dem #Fall so und so die schalt Zentrale und link Feeds der hier genauso fehlt.
Doch das steht auf einem anderen Blatt Papier geschrieben. Doch wenn ich das Bedürfnis haben möchte zwischen meinen Instanzen, wohlgemerkt, wenn ich das möchte, auf allen wo ich vertreten bin das dann, wenn ich mich entscheide das zu tun ihn durchzureichen an alle Instanzen. Eine Nachricht zu hinterlegen. Was leider alles nicht geht.

Oder hat das mit diesem Problem zu tun das ich es wie hier auf dem #Bild

Das immer noch kein Update eingespielt ist und das dieses die ersten #Buck #Probleme beinhaltet? Daher so das Ganze in einer Antwort in einem Tuten auf #Mastodon meine Antwort gegeben und gleichzeitig ,da ich das Problem mit allen #Instanzen habe , darauf hinzuweisen.

ich hoffe, jetzt ist das so klar und #deutlich, dass es verstanden worden ist, was mein #Problem ist, und #gleichzeitig warum ich, die andere #Geschichte oder das #Tuten dazu genommen habe. Zudem hoffe ich #Grammatik technisch gesehen genauso. Doch auch das ja Mittlerweile bekannt sein darf. Dann mit diesem Text auf das Problem und somit nochmals hingewiesen habe damit klarkommen sollten. Dankeschön und bleibt #gesund

We used four data sources on human mobility to construct a composite mobility indicator. Those sources were #Facebook, #Google, SafeGraph and Descartes Labs (Supplementary Information). Each source takes a slightly different approach to capturing mobility, so before constructing a composite mobility indicator, we standardized these different data sources (Supplementary Information).
Thanks, there were dweebs at work here. You don't need to know more :)) :)
 

Facebook bans QAnon across its platforms

Facebook said Tuesday that it is banning all QAnon accounts from its platforms, a significant escalation over its previous actions and one of the broadest rules the social media giant has put in place in its history.

Facebook said the change is an update on the policy it created in August that initially only removed accounts related to the QAnon conspiracy theory that discussed violence, which resulted in the termination of 1,500 pages, groups and profiles. ...

“Starting today, we will remove Facebook Pages, Groups and Instagram accounts for representing QAnon. We’re starting to enforce this updated policy today and are removing content accordingly, but this work will take time and will continue in the coming days and weeks,” Facebook wrote in a press release. “Our Dangerous Organizations Operations team will continue to enforce this policy and proactively detect content for removal instead of relying on user reports.”
Interesting observation on response:
Reacting to the partial ban in August, QAnon groups and followers shifted tactics to evade moderation, dropping explicit references to Q, and “camouflaging” QAnon content under hashtags ostensibly about protecting children.

Rebels within: the Facebook staff openly challenging Zuckerberg | Facebook | The Guardian

A developer’s powerful resignation letter is the latest condemnation of the social network’s attitude to hate speech
“It sort of reflects that they’re not interested in making that substantial progress, they’re not willing to make that substantial progress that they could.”
Has anybody actually thought that Zuckerberg and co might actually harbour right-wing beliefs themselves? Or are people just not saying it out loud?

Your mind is hackable.

For those of you who say that people should be wise enough to have self-control when facing psycho-social manipulation through social media, I ask this: Do you need to eat?

... The human hardware has specific responses to stimuli which will not change for at least give or take 60 years barring significant evolution. Your human body and nervous system has specific hardware vulnerabilities which will not be patched in a month, much less a week or a fortnight. Psycho-social manipulation is a real vulnerability and there’s no going around it. Legislation and socio-political norms-building may have at best a prefunctory effect on mitigating some of these risks but effectively the vulnerabilities will always be there.

Your mind is hackable. Know this. Plan accordingly.
Lifted from a private share.

Facebook takes EU to court for invading privacy: FT | Reuters

Facebook Inc has taken the European Union to court for invading the privacy of its employees, the Financial Times reported on Monday citing two people with direct knowledge of the matter.
The social media company claims EU regulators have asked broad questions beyond the scope of two ongoing antitrust probes, and it has requested that the General Court in Luxembourg intervene, the report added.
No. Sense. Of. Irony. Whatsoever.

If you’re not terrified about Facebook, you haven’t been paying attention

If it wasn’t for Facebook, there would be no Brexit.
In 2016, a hostile foreign government used Facebook to systematically undermine and subvert an US election. With no consequences. Nobody, no company, no individual or nation state has ever been held to account.

Zuckerberg says Black Lives Matter and yet we know Donald Trump used Facebook’s tools to deliberately suppress and deny black and Latino people the vote. With no consequences.

If it wasn’t for Facebook, there would be no Brexit. The future of the UK, the island nation with its 1,000 years of continuous history has been set on its course by a foreign company that has proved itself to be beyond the rule of parliament. Dominic Cummings understands the role that Facebook played in Brexit.

Bonjour à tous,
Débutante ici je recherche un moyen de m’extraire de Facebook (j’avoue, ça fait un moment mais je suis longue à la détente ^^). Malheureusement il me manque les médias que j’ai l’habitude de lire (ou s’ils sont présents leur actualité y est réduite) ainsi que mes amis.
Est-ce que vous avez des conseils pour motiver l’entourage à migrer ici et pour suivre quotidiennement les posts de vos médias préférés sans passer par Facebook? (idem pour Youtube car il me semble que Peertube ne propose que peu de contenu de ce que j’ai pu explorer)
Merci d’avance pour vos idées :)

Facebook Suspends Anti-Racist Skinheads for Reasons Unknown | Gizmodo

For years, activists and media have supplied Facebook with a long menu of white supremacist groups to target, and to its credit, it’s finally budging a little (emphasis on little). Last week, Facebook deactivated nearly 200 accounts tied to the white supremacist groups the Proud Boys and the American Guard. Facebook is being proactive, and now it’s chosen to go after...uh...skinheads. All skinheads, be they anti-fascist, anti-racist, or just ska fans.

A thought about contact tracing


Writing about the UK's new contact tracing app, being tested in the UK, BBC News reports:
Take-up will have to be colossal for the virus to be totally supressed [sic]. Academics advising the NHS estimate 80% of smartphone users - 60% of the population - would have to actively use it. By comparison, about 67% of UK smartphone users have downloaded messaging app WhatsApp.
So, they appear to be doubting that enough people will use the new contact-tracing app, but more than enough people already use Facebook's individual-tracing WhatsApp.

Someone seems to be missing a trick here. Or is it just me missing something? Doesn't it seem likely that if contact-tracing code was added to WhatsApp, more people would be likely to adopt it? Of course, that wouldn't solve any of the other problems.
