Trump’s Facebook Ban Likely To Be Overturned By Oversight Board

The panel is structured in ways that help the former president’s chances of regaining his posting privileges. Sometime in the coming weeks, Facebook Inc.’s new Oversight Board will announce whether Donald Trump will be allowed to post again on Facebook and Instagram. Based on its recent rulings in other cases, the board seems poised to end Facebook’s suspension of Trump, which began in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Trump’s return to social media would bolster his attempt to remain the dominant figure in the Republican Party. More broadly, it could reshape the way political speech is governed for Facebook’s 2.8 billion users, making it more difficult for the company to remove harmful content and bad actors. A pro-Trump decision could also influence other platforms, inc...

Kim Kardashian freezes Facebook, Instagram accounts

Kim Kardashian is starting a pressure movement against Facebook Inc. to stop the divisive hate campaign on its platforms, Facebook and Instagram. Kim, with 188million followers on Instagram and 29 million on Facebook tweeted she would be freezing her two accounts because she can no longer, “stay silent while these platforms continue to allow the spreading of hate, propaganda and misinformation”. She said that this spread of hate only exists to sow division and split America apart only to take steps after people are killed. “Misinformation shared on social media has a serious impact on our elections and undermines our democracy”, she wrote. The tweet drove Facebook stock value down by a few dollars. But it went up again to register a $6.27 increase for the day. Read her tw...

Australia To Force Google, Facebook To Pay Domestic Media To Use Content

Australia will force Facebook Inc (FB.O) and Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google to share advertising revenue with local media firms, the country’s treasurer said on Monday, becoming one of the first countries to require digital platforms to pay for content they use. Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said the move comes after talks with Facebook and Alphabet failed to yield a voluntary code to address complaints by domestic media players that the tech giants have too tight a grip on advertising, their main source of income. “We understand the challenge that we face, this is a big mountain to climb,” Frydenberg told reporters in Canberra. “These are big companies that we are dealing with but there is also so much at stake, so we’re prepared for this fight.” The government has now asked the...

Facebook Unveils New Models Of Portal Video Chatting Devices

Facebook Inc unveiled new models of its Portal video chat devices on Wednesday, making the company’s first foray into TV streaming hardware but offering a limited selection of subscription services. The launch comes as Facebook is trying to pivot toward more private forms of communication, after years of slowing user growth, data-sharing scandals and calls for change to its hands-off approach to content moderation. The company is already one of the biggest global players in private messaging, with its WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram apps used by 2.4 billion people each month. It is keeping the focus of its new Portal line on video calling, adding the capability for WhatsApp calls along with improvements to a wide-angle camera that keeps users in focus as they move about a ro...

My Tweets Won Me The White House – Donald Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump defended his regular use of social media, especially Twitter, saying that his tweets won him the White House. In an interview airing on Sunday on “Fox Business Network,” Trump said that with his use of Twitter, he could bypass “unfair media coverage” and speak directly. “Tweeting is like a typewriter — when I put it out, you put it immediately on your show,” he said, according to a transcript released by the network. “I doubt I would be here if weren’t for social media, to be honest with you.” He called his social media accounts on Facebook Inc, Twitter Inc and Instagram “a tremendous platform.” “When somebody, says something about me, I am able to go bing, bing, bing and I take care of it. The other way, I would never have got the word out,” he s...
