But that picture clashes with the departure of people who say they have blood on their hands.
I spoke last week with a former researcher whose badge post I didn’t see on the Facebook paper. He told me he would stay in a room and give examples of hate speech or harassment to the users he spoke to. “And there are no women in those product meetings,” she says “We, as privacy and security researchers, will present these stories that were quite startling, such as ‘Here I just talked to a woman, and in one day, she received 40 direct messages from a man she didn’t know and was being harassed.’ But you have to present it with other data, quantitative data. Sometimes such short stories get lost. “
And often the problem is not solved. “You can do the best job in the world if you’re a‘ low product manager ’, but if you don’t get new X number users to sign up, you won’t get your bonus, or you won’t get a promotion,” he says. In order to truly address the issues, “the way the company encourages the product team needs to change radically,” he added.
Another complication: Facebook is designed to prevent such changes. Many teams work to change products to improve security or reduce misinformation in things like news feeds, sometimes in double digits. As mentioned in a badge poster, multiple departmental approvals are required to change an integrity that improves security. But it only takes one “no” to prevent that change from happening.
Even worse is the resistance coming from higher in Facebook’s food chain. On August 25, 2020, a researcher said in a badge post, “Integrity teams are facing increasing barriers to building protection. “In recent months, I’ve seen Integrity Products team commit to intervention, including strong research and data support, prematurely suppressed or severely restricted by key decision-makers প্রায় often based on fears of public and policy stakeholder responses … out of fear. Possible Public and policy stakeholder feedback, we Knowingly Disclosure of users at risk of loss of integrity. “
I’ve spent hundreds of hours over the last few years talking to Facebook staff, including Mark Zuckerberg, and The company dives into the way things work. Nonetheless, I found Facebook as a paper publisher – because they are not surprised by the weaknesses, conflicts, and unacceptable compromises made by Facebook and its leaders, but by how much those leaders were aware of the flaws in the platform. Over the past few weeks, comparisons between Facebook and Big Tobacco have gained popularity. But Nick Clegg has pushed this analogy backwards, and I actually agree with him. There is no alleviating cause of tobacco: Cigarettes do not improve anyone’s health and they will kill you. Instead, when I look through these documents প্রমাণ which proves that many of the horrible things we’ve heard about Facebook have been properly reported and documented by researchers and presented to company leaders আমি I think of another corporate crisis that happened two years before Mark. . Zuckerberg was born.
In early September 1982, the parents of 12-year-old Mary Kellerman of Elk Grove, a Chicago suburb, found their daughter dead on the bathroom floor. A few hours ago, he complained of a cold-cough, and his parents gave him a capsule of extra-energy Tylenol, the most popular remedy in the country for minor discomfort. Horses were among the three poison deaths reported that day, and each victim ate Tylenol cap with cyanide. The death toll will soon rise to seven.
