#Censored Again: #Facebook removes #PalestinianMediaWatch expose of girl calling Jews ‘descendants of pigs’April 11, 2013
The long time official faceboook policy has long been to attack the victims who want to talk about the hate they deal with. This is nothing new. facebook also threw the Jewish Internet Defense Force’s permanent facebook account off the network, so it is almost impossible to organize against the hate. This is the long term policy of a network run by liberal feminist Jews and this is the general attitude that liberal feminist Jews have towards other Jews.
|Palestinian Media Watch posted the following video. Facebook removed it.
Let’s go to the videotape.
(nytimes) Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Facebook is making changes to its privacy settings.
First, it is improving some privacy protections. The company is adding a new top-level control, called Privacy Shortcuts, that will allow people to quickly change who can see their “stuff” (as Facebook calls it) and who can contact them through the Web site. The shortcut will also feature a one-button link to block someone on Facebook.
In a phone interview, Sam Lessin, Facebook’s director of product, said these shortcuts will always be visible to people on Facebook as they navigate the site. He added that highlighting the ability to block someone is an increasingly useful feature.
“There are a billion users and blocking is the ultimate way of saying I don’t want to interact with this person,” Mr. Lessin said. “We think blocking is really positive.”
The company is also introducing a higher level of control on the site’s Activity Log, a feature that allows people to hide or remove things that appear on their Facebook timeline. People will now be able to quickly view and control comments, photos and posts that have been tagged by others.
But when Facebook giveth, Facebook taketh away.
The company is eliminating the ability for people to hide themselves on Facebook’s search, a control, that until now, has existed in the privacy settings on the company’s Web site.
Mr. Lessin said the ability to hide from the site’s search would be “retired” as only ”a single-digit percentage of users” actually hide themselves from Facebook search. But keep in mind that Facebook has a billion people on the site; a single-digit percentage of users could mean tens of millions of people.
But we should have seen this coming. During the TechCrunch Disrupt conference earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, talked about the company’s potential moves into search, highlighting how people use the feature.
“Search is interesting. We do on the order of 1 billion queries a day and we’re basically not even trying,” Mr. Zuckerberg said. “Today with search the vast majority of it is people trying to find people.”
Now you won’t have a choice but to be featured in search. At least you can easily block someone who finds you.
And they called me a cyberstalker? I’m not angry with facebook. I’m angry that people are angry
Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg has sold 30.2 million shares and director Peter Thiel has sold 16.8 million shares of the social-networking company, according to securities filings published late Tuesday.
The sales confirm plans detailed in a prospectus before Friday’s $16 billion IPO. Zuckerberg sold 30.2 million shares at a price of $37.58 for gross proceeds of $1.13 billion; Thiel sold 16.8 million shares for gross proceeds of $633 million. Facebook insiders had told prospective shareholders of their plans in an S-1 filing last week.
facebook hypocritical? facebook double standards? nah!
(Reuters) – Facebook shares sank in the first day of trading without the full support of the company’s underwriters, leaving some investors down almost 25 percent from where they were Friday and driving others to switch back to more established stocks.Facebook’s debut was beset by problems, so much so that Nasdaq said on Monday it was changing its IPO procedures. That may comfort companies considering a listing, but does it little for Facebook, whose lead underwriter, Morgan Stanley, had to step in and defend the $38 offering price on the open market.
Even so, one source said Morgan Stanley’s own brokers were at one point “ranting and raving” about glitches that left unclear what trades had actually been executed.
Without a fresh round of defense, Facebook shares fell $3.79 to $34.34 in afternoon trading. That represented a decline of 10 percent from Friday’s close and 24 percent from Friday’s intra-day high of $45 a share.
“At the moment it’s not living up to the hype,” said Frank Lesh, a futures analyst and broker at FuturePath Trading LLC in Chicago, adding that some people may have decided to hang back and buy the stock on the decline.
“Look at the valuation on it. It might have said ‘buy’ to a few people, but boy it was awfully rich,” he said.
The drop in Facebook’s share price wiped some $10 billion off of the company’s market capitalization — it became a sufficiently interesting pop culture story that even gossip website TMZ did a brief item Monday morning.(MORE)
Buy facebook shares on Friday. It’s a no brainer
In the US, Holocaust denial is recognised as a form of hate. Because incitement to hatred is protected under the First Amendment, Congress cannot pass laws to prevent it. Facebook, on the other hand can and does prohibit the use of their service to promote hate. As a private company it has that right. By refusing to accept that Holocaust denial is a form of hate, Facebook lends legitimacy to the deniers and strikes against a human rights consensus.Facebook, which bans pictures of breast feeding mothers, does not need to make the hurdles so high when it comes to the hatred of Jews.
…not to mention I’d like my facebook graffiti back from the facebook profiles that were deleted because facebook decided to censor my artwork when feminists complained about the nudity in my art. Yeah… I live by Vassar college.
