In an online BBC video, Theresa Hong, the Donald Trump campaign’s Digital Content Director, has made a number of startling confessions that she seems to think were bragging points. She’s revealed that Cambridge Analytica, the company suspected of having used voter data stolen by the Russian government to plot its online marketing strategy on Trump’s behalf, ran its operations out of the same offices where the Trump campaign itself was plotting its paid Facebook ad strategy. But the truly shocking revelation is who else she admits was in the building, which Trump’s people called “Project Alamo.”


The BBC interviewer asks Hong, “What were Facebook and Google and YouTube people actually doing here? Why were they here?” She responds by saying “They were helping us, you know. They were basically our hands-on partners as far as being able to utilize the platform as effectively as possible.” Shen then bragged “When you’re pumping in millions and millions of dollars to these social platforms, you’re going to get white glove treatment. So they would send people, you know, representatives to the Project Alamo to ensure that all our needs were being met.” Watch the shocking BBC video below

Secrets Of Silicon Valley
Series 1: 2. The Persuasion Machine


Jamie Bartlett reveals how Silicon Valley's mission to connect the world is disrupting democracy, helping plunge us into an age of political turbulence. Many of the Tech Gods were dismayed when Donald Trump - who holds a very different worldview - won the American presidency, but did they actually help him to win? With the help of a key insider from the Trump campaign's digital operation, Jamie unravels for the first time the role played by social media and Facebook's vital role in getting Trump into the White House. But how did Facebook become such a powerful player?

Jamie learns how Facebook's vast power to persuade was first built for advertisers, combining data about our internet use and psychological insights into how we think. A leading psychologist then shows Jamie how Facebook's hoard of data about us can be used to predict our personalities and other psychological traits. He interrogates the head of the big data analytics firm that targeted millions of voters on Facebook for Trump - he tells Jamie this revolution is unstoppable. But is this great persuasion machine now out of control? Exploring the emotional mechanisms that supercharge the spread of fake news on social media, Jamie reveals how Silicon Valley's persuasion machine is now being exploited by political forces of all kinds, in ways no one - including the Tech Gods who created it - may be able to stop.

2. Madam45, thank you

You Tube is over run with bots of the Russian fascist persuasion. The owners of You Tube deserve a tongue lashing and public humiliation for their lack of action. imo

3. Facebook ad targeting is dangerous

The level of targeting in Facebook ad placement allows anyone to reach their target audience, even hate groups. You want your message to reach Nazis and Jew Haters -Facebook is there with the tools, willing to help make that happen, because making a buck selling ads is more important than being a good corporate citizen

13. Pretty awful. Thanks for the link.

 

Found this there:

Have You Experienced Hate Speech on Facebook? We Want To Hear From You.
Help us investigate how Facebook’s censorship policies actually work.



Earlier this month, in the wake of the Charlottesville attack on protesters, a post began circulating on Facebook titled: “Heather Heyer, Woman Killed in Road Rage Incident was a Fat, Childless 32-Year-Old Slut.”

You might have thought that the post violated Facebook’s rules against hate speech. But, in fact, it did not. Facebook’s arcane hate speech rules, revealed by ProPublica in June, only prohibit hate speech attacks against “protected categories” of people — based on gender, race or religious affiliation — but not against individuals.

4. Glad I killed my FB account soon after the election

Call me paranoid, but I often felt like I was being manipulated and I knew many of my friends were. I finally had my fill of stupidity and had to get out of there. I try never to say never, but I can't imagine going back to FB, ever.

7. Great instincts there. Me too, did not even bother with Facebook or twitter.

 

Did not feel like co-mingling with cockroaches which is what trolls and bots remind me of.

5. Facebook and election law violations

Last edited Fri Sep 15, 2017, 09:14 AM - Edit history (1)

It's been known since before the election that social networking platforms were used to influence voters. It's also been known that the Russians hacked into many states election systems even into voter databases, but what's being done about it?


http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-russia-fec/u-s-election-agency-seeks-comment-after-facebook-cites-russian-ads-idUSKCN1BP2ZR


Foreign governments are allowed under U.S. law to buy ads and publicity for certain issues if they disclose such spending, but it is unlawful for them to interfere in elections.

Last week, Facebook said an operation likely based in Russia spent $100,000 on thousands of U.S. ads promoting social and political messages over a two-year period through May, fueling concerns about foreign meddling in U.S. elections.

U.S. congressional committees and special counsel Robert Mueller are investigating the allegations, which Russia has denied.




https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/01/us/politics/russia-election-hacking.html?mcubz=0&_r=0

After a presidential campaign scarred by Russian meddling, local, state and federal agencies have conducted little of the type of digital forensic investigation required to assess the impact, if any, on voting in at least 21 states whose election systems were targeted by Russian hackers, according to interviews with nearly two dozen national security and state officials and election technology specialists.

The assaults on the vast back-end election apparatus — voter-registration operations, state and local election databases, e-poll books and other equipment — have received far less attention than other aspects of the Russian interference, such as the hacking of Democratic emails and spreading of false or damaging information about Mrs. Clinton. Yet the hacking of electoral systems was more extensive than previously disclosed, The New York Times found.

8. Has been known but Facebook denied over & over again. Also all pieces of the puzzle help unravel

 

this mess.

IMO opinion all of it needs to come out to the light of day.

9. Want to make a million dollars?

Develop an anti-bot program that doesn't allow bot driven posts to be made on social media.

(I don't know either. That's why it would make you rich)

18. I actually think that they are all proud and some don't understand that what they participated in

....was participating in a Russian attack and coup on our Nation.

Perhaps a few do realize it and don't care. But the woman who took the BBC reporter for a tour and was showing him where and how Project Alamo was organized and where Cambridge Analytica was with its servers and that the Facebook, youtube etc. people sent to work there and the millions they were spending and that they were a special partner, well, she just seemed to be gushing proud and not understanding what was done.
