    Facebook has been working hard to identify and remove hate speech, bullying, fake stories and incitements to violence. The alt-right extremists and looney-birds are now forming private groups where they can spew their hatred with little fear of detection by Facebook. Lovely.

    Fringe figures find refuge in Facebook's private groups

    Facebook now requires buyers of political ads to be US citizens or permanent residents and Facebook has hired thousands of people to monitor for fake accounts and false information. Now if we could just keep Trump off Twitter.....

    Facebook is 'better prepared' to fight election interference, Mark Zuckerberg says

    There hasn't been a negative story about Facebook for two whole weeks. We are way overdue for one -- and, look, here is one now!

    Employers are using Facebook to target job ads exclusively to men, complaint alleges
    The Washington Post, Sep 18 2018 11:55 AM

    Three female job hunters, the 700,000-member Communications Workers of America union and the American Civil Liberties Union lodged a legal complaint against Facebook today, accusing the company of enabling discriminatory job postings with its ad-targeting tools. The complaint also names 10 employers that used Facebook to post job ads — for roles as police officers, truck drivers and sales representatives at a sports store — that were exclusively targeted to men.

    The complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is the latest of several legal efforts that take aim at Facebook's core business of targeting advertising to highly tailored groups of people, a model that made the company more than $13 billion in revenue last quarter.

    The groups bringing the charges argue that longstanding civil rights laws that protect people from discrimination are being routinely broken as more job and housing searches move online. Federal laws prohibit employers, lenders, insurers and landlords from excluding people from advertising on the basis of "protected categories," which include gender, race, national origin, religion, age, military status, disability and sexual orientation.
