Facebook wishes it could 'hit delete' on the notorious Andrew Bosworth memo justifying growth at all costs

  Facebook wishes it could 'hit delete' on the notorious Andrew Bosworth memo justifying growth at all costs Facebook executive Niamh Sweeney told lawmakers in Ireland that Facebook wishes it could 'hit delete' on an infamous memo sent by VP Andrew Bosworth. The memo was sent in 2016 and claimed that any growth on the platform is 'de facto good.'The email, which was leaked to BuzzFeed earlier this year, claimed that any growth on Facebook is "de facto good," even if it leads to people being harmed or killed.

And with the investors reeling following Facebook ’s remarkable dip in market value, is time running out to rebuild Facebook ’s reputation ? Addressing its large scale failings so far, the feeling I get from Facebook is “so far, so corporate”.

“Silicon Valley faces many challenges, and I am encouraged that there are so many dedicated, thoughtful and skilled people continuing to tackle these challenges at Facebook.”

You bet, Mr Stamos. You bet. But we’re left wondering if your former boss Mark Zuckerberg is among them. And with the investors reeling following Facebook’s remarkable dip in market value, is time running out to rebuild Facebook’s reputation?

The official response from Facebook following Alex Stamos’ departure as Chief Security Officer was this: “We are investing heavily in security to address new types of threats for the people who use our services. Earlier this year we embedded our security engineers, analysts, investigators, and other specialists in the heart of our product and engineering teams”.

Facebook launches a digital literacy library aimed at educators

  Facebook launches a digital literacy library aimed at educators Facebook this morning announced the launch of a new set of educational resources focused on helping young people think critically and behave thoughtfully online. The Digital Literacy Library, as the new site is being called, is aimed at educators of children aged 11 to 18, and address topics like privacy, reputation, identity exploration, security, safety, wellbeing and more. There are 830 million young people online, the company notes, which is why digital literacy is necessary.

Business school students discuss how to rebuild trust after a scandal. Mr Zuckerberg, has come out and said that Facebook has made mistakes and that changes will be made. That said, this is perhaps not the right time for such a debate to be opened by Facebook .

In English, it seems to translate as “putting people closer to where the action is”. But did Facebook really not have people on product teams who had anything to do with security before? That’s the implication, and it does point to the need for some fairly major reforms if Facebook is ever going to be anything other than a tech giant in terminal decline.

Addressing its large scale failings so far, the feeling I get from Facebook is “so far, so corporate”. There’s been the tour of the political leaders, all thoroughly scripted and very rehearsed. There’s been the ad campaign (“fake news is not our friend”. Yup, we see what you did there).

This time though, the money is talking, and it’s saying rather stridently that the investors aren’t happy. What might help turn things around? In my view, four big, brave initiatives, which may just be make or break, but which would definitely get to the heart of the matter:

Stoops: Defensive lineman Paschal has melanoma on foot

  Stoops: Defensive lineman Paschal has melanoma on foot Kentucky coach Mark Stoops says defensive lineman Josh Paschal has a malignant melanoma on his right foot and offensive line coach John Schlarman is dealing with an unspecified health issue. Stoops says the sophomore recently had lesions removed from the bottom of the foot. Paschal was awaiting results from another procedure Wednesday. Pascal had 17 tackles, 3.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss as a freshman and was expected to play a bigger role this season.Stoops says Schlarman, in his sixth season with the Wildcats, is still coaching while undergoing testing to determine his illness.

It takes time to build a good reputation . And even more time to rebuild a damaged one. Calling this person out and making them answer for their actions may be your best option to shut them down and reclaim your reputation .

Open regulation: Rather than wait for the regulators to spend the next two years drafting something draconian, I think Facebook should use its scale, reach and considerable engineering and design talent to get there first. Why not collaborate directly with policy experts and draft a new code of conduct in a very public, and open way? Before others start to follow Germany’s example on a jurisdiction by jurisdiction basis, something like this is bound to be more enlightened, inclusive, and way-finding.

Open governance: Facebook has a dangerous concentration of power in one individual. I think the social network should consider a model which devolves much more power to local country level first, then even types of user group, secondly. Imagine a means of decision making and prioritisation which involved the actual user. Imagine a token-backed governance forum where the real users make an investment in the company, however nominal in real terms. Civil is doing it for journalism; it would be extremely powerful at a corporate level, and would show the way for a new form of digital-first corporate governance.

Watch Taylor Swift Perform ‘Summer of ’69’ With Bryan Adams in Toronto

  Watch Taylor Swift Perform ‘Summer of ’69’ With Bryan Adams in Toronto Taylor Swift performed “one of my favorite songs ever written,” Bryan Adams‘ “Summer of ’69,” with help from the Canadian rocker during Swift’s Reputation Tour stop Saturday in Toronto. After proclaiming her love for the 1984 hit, Swift delivered a solo rendition of the song’s first verse before the Ontario-born Adams arose unannounced on the stage’s lift. The two singers then combined for a spirited take on the single that featured an extended outro where Adams and Swift traded improvised vocals.Swift previously performed an acoustic “Summer of ’69” on a few dates of her Speak Now Tour in September 2011.

Open decisions: We’ve gone beyond privacy settings now. These fundamentally miss the point of the data exchange between users, platforms and other commercial entities. What we need is real transparency: what goes where, why, how, and for what gain? Why not provide the open means for users to both understand why and how their data is used, and even enable a form of personal data economy where Facebook’s users could benefit directly?

Open capitalism: Facebook needs to decide whose side it’s on - its users’ or the companies it provides user data to? And a clear choice means a clear commercial consequence: some investors will get cold feet. But that’s a small price to pay for the “right kind of capitalism”.

These are some perspectives. And probably wildly optimistic ones at that, but something big will need to change, and quickly. Otherwise the exodus of users, or at least the quiet slide of engagement levels in developed economies is just the beginning.
