(AUSTRALIA) META/GOOGLE DEAL REPORT: The ABC has announced plans to hire more than 50 journalists to report from over 20 regional locations, following deals it struck #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.04: More remote locations will also see ABC journalists embedded there for a shorter period of time.

#AceDailyNews says the new jobs will be spread across all states and the Northern Territory, with the positions expected to be filled by early 2022: Larger regional patches will get more support, in areas such as Horsham, Burnie, Dubbo, Wagga Wagga, Katherine, Esperance, Karratha, Longreach and Toowoomba: An agreement was signed with Facebook this week following an agreement with Google last month.

As part of the announcement, several new national specialist rounds will be added to the ABC’s regional team, covering water, mining, social affairs and health.ABC funding injectionManaging director David Anderson says the cash injection will allow bureaus to deliver more local content across platforms.

Smaller bureaus will be trialled in Warragul, Batemans Bay, Carnarvon, Hervey Bay and Charleville, while individual journalists will be stationed in Swan Hill, Whyalla, Victor Harbor, Northam and Gladstone.

ABC managing director David Anderson said the additional reporters would be placed in areas that had previously been  “news deserts”.

“We want to provide greater coverage of regional stories in areas that are under-served by the media,” he said.

“Extra regional services are a great way to start 2022, our 90th year, and this announcement is fitting given the ABC’s relationship with rural and regional Australia over those nine decades.”

The ABC entered into commercial negotiations with the digital platforms after the News Media Bargaining Code came into effect in February,  

Revenue from both will go towards increasing the ABC’s investment in regional and rural journalism across Australia.

(SILCON VALLEY) META REPORT: How to deactivate OR delete YOUR Facebook Page on Apple & Android Devices #AceNewsDesk report

#AceSocialDesk says according to a Gizmodo News Report: How to Actually Deactivate and Delete Facebook Page on various devices ….

How to Actually Deactivate and Delete Facebook

Tried to deactivate or delete your Facebook but due to it being hidden somewhere deep in the settings it was placed in the ‘too hard’ basket and you just never bothered to look again? Fear not, here’s where you can find the hard to find delete and deactivate buttons.

deactivate delete facebook

Unfortunately, Facebook, I mean Meta, hasn’t made this process as easy as hitting a big read button that says “delete my Facebook account and all of my data”, but if you know where to look, it’s actually a pretty easy process.

How to deactivate (not delete) Facebook

On desktop

  • Select Settings & privacy
  • Then Settings
  • Tap Your Facebook information
deactivate delete facebook
  • And scroll down to Deactivation and deletion
  • Hit View
  • Select Deactivate account
  • Hit Continue to Account Deactivation
  • Select why you want to leave (you can opt to add more context, if you like, but I don’t think Mark Zuckerberg is going to read why you don’t want to play Facebook anymore)
deactivate delete facebook
  • Check to opt-out of receiving emails from Facebook
  • And if you wish to keep using Messenger, check that box, too
  • You will be prompted to confirm you want to deactivate
  • Hit Deactivate now if you do

Deactivate Facebook on an iPhone/iPad

  • Open the Facebook app on your iPhone or iPad
  • On the bottom right of your screen, tap the Menu icon
  • Scroll down to Settings & Privacy and expand
deactivate delete facebook
  • Hit Settings
  • Under Account, select Personal and account information
deactivate delete facebook
  • Tap Account ownership and control
  • Select Deactivation and deletion
deactivate delete facebook
  • Then Continue to account deactivation
deactivate delete facebook
  • Select why you want to leave (you can opt to add more context, if you like)
  • Check to opt-out of receiving emails from Facebook
  • And if you wish to keep using Messenger, check that box, too

Deactivate Facebook on an Android device

  • Open the Facebook app on your Android device (please note these instructions were made on a Google Pixel 6 Pro, so your version of Android may differ slightly)
  • Up the top right, underneath the Messenger icon, tap the three lines
  • Scroll down to Settings & Privacy
  • Tap Settings
deactivate delete facebook
  • Under Account, select Personal and Account Information
  • Tap Account Ownership and Control
deactivate delete facebook
  • Select Deactivation and deletion
deactivate delete facebook
  • Check Deactivate account
  • Then Continue to account deactivation
  • Select why you want to leave (you can opt to add more context, if you like)
  • Check to opt out of receiving emails from Facebook
  • And if you wish to keep using Messenger, check that box, too

While your Facebook account will then be deactivated, it still exists and isn’t deleted. Friends cannot see your profile and you are essentially logged out, but without your Facebook being active in your absence. As soon as you log in, however, your account is automatically re-activated.

How do I delete (not deactivate) Facebook?

On desktop

On a desktop, and logged into your Facebook account:

  • Select the right triangle on the far right of your screen
  • Click Settings & privacy
  • Then Settings
  • You’ll want to then select Your Facebook information
deactivate delete facebook
  • Scroll down to Deactivation and deletion
  • Hit View
  • Select Delete account
  • Hit continue to account deletion
  • Unlike with deactivation, you can’t keep your Messenger account if you delete your profile
deactivate delete facebook
  • Hit Delete Account
  • You’ll need to confirm your password
  • Then select Delete Account
  • Your account is then scheduled for permanent deletion
deactivate delete facebook

Delete Facebook on an iPhone/iPad

  • Open the Facebook app on your iPhone or iPad
  • On the bottom right of your screen, tap the Menu icon
  • Scroll down to Settings & Privacy and expand
deactivate delete facebook
deactivate delete facebook
deactivate delete facebook
  • expand
  • Hit Settings
  • Under Account, select Personal and account information
  • Tap Account ownership and control
  • Select Deactivation and deletion
  • Hit Delete account
  • Then Continue to account deletion
  • You’ll need to confirm your password
  • Then select Delete Account
  • Your account is then scheduled for permanent deletion

Delete Facebook on an Android device

  • Open the Facebook app on your Android device (please note these instructions were made on a Google Pixel 6 Pro, so your version of Android may differ slightly)
  • Up the top right, underneath the Messenger icon, tap the three lines
  • Scroll down to Settings & Privacy
  • Tap Settings
  • Under Account, select Personal and account information
  • Tap Account Ownership and Control
  • Select Deactivation and deletion
  • Check Delete account
  • Then Continue to account deletion
  • You’ll need to confirm your password
  • Then select Delete Account
  • Your account is then scheduled for permanent deletion

Once you’ve submitted your account for deletion, you have 30 days to reactivate your account and cancel the deletion. After 30 days, the deletion process will begin, and you won’t be able to retrieve any of the content or information you’ve added. This will completely delete your Facebook, which is why they offer the suggestion to just deactivate it.

Au revoir, Facebook!

(CALIFORNIA) META REPORT: Plans to roll out end-to-end encryption on Facebook and Instagram have been delayed amid a row over child safety #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.23: Plans to roll out end-to-end encryption on Facebook and Instagram have been delayed amid a row over child safety: Meta – as Facebook’s parent company is now called – said messaging encryption on the apps would now come in 2023.

#AceSocialNewsDesk META At It AGAIN as Facebook & Instagram encryption plans delayed by Meta until 2023 to PROTECT children ONLINE …as THEY have to CHANGE their ALGORITHM and that means LESS money and #ProfitB4People

KIndness & Love❤️ says PROTECTING CHILDREN more important than Zuckerberg making MORE MONEY #PeopleB4Profit Amen

Yahoo News: Mon, November 22, 2021, 12:16 PM

Phone
Meta has delayed message encryption on Facebook and Instagram to 2023

The process means only the sender and receiver can read messages, but law enforcement or Meta cannot: However, child protection groups and politicians have warned that it could hamper police investigating child abuse.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), has claimed that private messaging “is the front line of child sexual abuse”.

UK Home Secretary Priti Patel has also criticised the technology, saying earlier this year that it could “severely hamper” law enforcement in pursuing criminal activity, including online child abuse.

Privacy v protection

End-to-end encryption works by “scrambling” or encrypting the data while it travels between phones and other devices.

The only way to read the message is usually to get physical access to an unlocked device that sent or received it.

The technology is the default for popular messaging service WhatsApp, also owned by Meta – but not the company’s other apps.

The NSPCC sent Freedom of Information requests to 46 police forces across England, Wales, and Scotland asking them for a breakdown of the platforms used to commit sexual offences against children last year.

The responses revealed:

  • more than 9,470 instances of child sex abuse images and online child sex offences were reported to police
  • 52% of these took place on Facebook-owned apps
  • over a third of the cases took place on Instagram, and 13% on Facebook and Messenger, with very few occurring via WhatsApp

That has led to fears that Meta’s plans to expand encryption to widely-used Facebook Messenger and Instagram direct messages could shield the majority of abusers from detection.

The NSPCC said that encrypting messages by default could lead to the easier spread of child abuse imagery or online grooming.

But advocates say that encryption protects users’ privacy, and prevents prying by both governments and unscrupulous hackers. Meta chief executive Mark Zuckerberg made those arguments himself when 

Antigone Davis, Meta’s global head of safety, said that the delay in implementing encryption to 2023 

The company had previously said the change would happen in 2022 at the earliest.

Ms Davis said: “As a company that connects billions of people around the world and has built industry-leading technology, we’re determined to protect people’s private communications and keep people safe online.”

She also outlined a number of additional preventative measures the company had already put in place, including:

Andy Burrows, head of child safety online policy at the NSPCC, welcomed the delay by Meta.

He said: “They should only go ahead with these measures when they can demonstrate they have the technology in place that will ensure children will be at no greater risk of abuse.

“More than 18 months after an NSPCC-led a global coalition of 130 child protection organisations raised the alarm over the danger of end-to-end encryption, Facebook must now show they are serious about the child safety risks and not just playing for time while they weather difficult headlines.”

(CALIFORNIA) META Golden Silicon Valley Report: Tech giant is reportedly offering musicians and online creators as much as $50,000 to use its live audio feature. The feature, a clone of popular startup service Clubhouse, is hoping that chats with celebrities like Miley Cyrus will entice users to stay in their VIRTUAL ecosystem #AceNewsDesk report

#AceSocialNewsDesk says META at it again in this Golden Age as Facebook Inc is reported as ‘Paying Musicians and Celebs Up to $50K to Use Its Clubhouse Clone’ as people WANT their 15-minutes of FAME and Zuckerberg more #ProfitB4People with their ‘PRIVATE DATA ….

21. Nov 2021Mike Coppola Mark Zuckerberg Smiles during testimony (Pool/Getty)

Breitbart Report:

Tech giant Facebook (now known as Meta) is reportedly offering musicians and online creators as much as $50,000 to use its live audio feature. The feature, a clone of popular startup service Clubhouse, is hoping that chats with celebrities like Miley Cyrus will entice users to stay in the Facebook ecosystem.

The Verge reports

That the giant Facebook is continuing to attempt to pay creators to use one of its new features to generate buzz. Facebook (now Meta) CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated in July that the firm would be paying $1 billion to creators by the end of 2022. As part of this initiative, the company is reportedly paying creators up to $50,000 to use the platform’s Live Audio Rooms feature: Like most of Facebook’s features, Live Audio Rooms appeared to be a direct clone of the Clubhouse audio chatroom app. Breitbart News previously reported that the Facebook-owned platform Instagram was paying creators up to $35,000 to post on its TikTok clone platform Reels: Read more at the Verge here.

The Information reports

That ” Facebook is offering to pay musicians and other creators $10,000 to $50,000 per session on its five-month-old live audio product, plus a fee for guests of $10,000 or more,” according to “people with direct knowledge of deal terms.”………..Facebook is reportedly asking creators to hose four to six sessions that are at least 30 minutes long as part of the payout deal. Creators that have appeared in the Live Audio Rooms feature include singer Miley Cyrus and comedian Sherry Cola, but there is currently no evidence that they were paid for these appearances……………..Many tech companies are beginning to pay creators to generate attention on the platform. TikTok has its own Creator Fund that pays larger creators on the platform, similarly Snap has a Spotlight program, and Twitter operates a paid “accelerator” program for its Spaces audio chatroom feature.

(AUSTRALIA) ACCC REPORT: They will not oppose the proposed acquisition of Kustomer by Meta, formerly known as Facebook Inc. #AceNewsDesk report

@acenewsservices

#meta

#AceNewsReport – Nov.19: Meta is a technology company that generates most of its revenue from advertising and related services on its digital platforms, Facebook and Instagram. Meta also offers three messaging services, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram, which businesses can use to communicate with consumers. Meta also sells ads that direct consumers to these services (for example, click-to-message ads).

#AceSocialNewsDesk says that METAVerse moves to acquire more and more in ACQUISITION to build business relationships and utilise people’s PRIVATE DATA to make MORE MONEY acquiring Kustomer is a small customer relationship management (CRM) software-as-a-service provider based in the USA that focuses on business interactions with customers. Some of its services include collating customer interactions that occur through channels used by a business, such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Twitter, email, SMS and/or webchat.

During its investigation into the proposed transaction, the ACCC heard from some market participants that access to Meta’s messaging services is an important input for some CRM providers, particularly those that service medium-sized businesses.

“We were initially concerned about the prospect of Meta restricting access to its messaging services for competing CRM providers, however we concluded that Meta is unlikely to have an incentive to do this,” ACCC Chair Rod Sims said.

“We consider that Meta’s interest is in promoting use of its messaging services so that it can grow its advertising business. Restricting access for competing CRM providers is inconsistent with that.”

“We found that Meta is likely to continue to promote its services through other CRM providers as well as Kustomer.”

The ACCC further notes that Kustomer has a minimal presence in Australia and that Meta and Kustomer’s services have only a very minor overlap.

“Based on the information gathered during our investigation, we consider this proposed acquisition is unlikely to have a significant impact in Australia, and is not likely to result in a substantially lessening of competition in any market in Australia.”

The ACCC notes that the proposed acquisition is subject to reviews by regulators in other jurisdictions, including the USA, EU and the UK.

Further information is available at Meta Platforms, Inc – Kustomer, Inc.

Background

Kustomer, Inc. is a relatively small CRM software-as-a-service provider, which focusses on CRM tools designed to assist businesses with their customer service requirements. Kustomer is based in the USA and has its headquarters in New York.

Meta Platforms, Inc., formerly Facebook, Inc., is a large, publicly traded company that generates most of its revenue through advertising and related services. Meta is based in the USA and offers three messaging services namely Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram, that enable businesses to communicate with consumers.

Businesses often use CRM software such as Kustomer to manage their communications with consumers through various channels, including Meta’s messaging services.

(SILICON VALLEY) META REPORT: Here we go again Facebook, Messenger & Instagram face another ‘OUTRAGE’ across Australia & Europe today Thursday according to statement #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.06: The outage appears to be affecting users around the world, including in Australia, across Europe and Central America: We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing Messenger, Workplace Chat and Instagram DMs,” Meta said to The Independent in a statement on Thursday.

#AceSocialDesk says according to Australia 7News Report: META’s Users across the world are reporting the newly-named Meta’s services including Facebook, Messenger and Instagram – are down and facing major outages.

A number of users across Australia reported issues with Facebook, Messenger and Instagram on Thursday.
Reports of outages spiked on popular site status website DownDetectorfrom 6am (AEDT) on Thursday.

“We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience.”A number of users across Australia reported issues with Facebook, Messenger and Instagram on Thursday. Credit: DownDetector

Most users reported issues with accessing Facebook and Instagram through the mobile apps, with others suggesting the outage is not affecting the online versions of the website.

Messenger services appear to be offline for thousands trying to access via the mobile app and the website.

Users reported issues with sending direct messages across the various platforms, which see up to 100 billion messages sent on any given day.

“Everything is working fine on Instagram and Facebook except their messaging services,” one user wrote.

Many others said they were unable to post on either app.

Both Instagram and Messenger share the same underlying infrastructure, meaning it’s more likely outages occur across both platforms at the same time.

Facebook, Messenger and Instagram down… AGAIN

The tech giant apologised in October for two major outages within the same week.

In the first, routine maintenance on Meta’s network stitching together its data centres caused a collapse of its global system for more than six hours.

The outage was the largest that Downdetector said it had ever seen.

It blocked access to apps for billions of users of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.Users across the world are reporting the newly-named Meta’s services including Facebook, Messenger and Instagram – are down and facing major outages. Credit: EPA

During the second outage, some users were unable to load their Instagram feeds, while others were not able to send messages on Facebook Messenger.

People swiftly took to Twitter to share memes and jokes about the second service disruption in a matter of days.

“Looks like Facebook went to a 3-day work week. Monday and Friday shutdowns?” a Twitter user said

Instagram thanked users for their patience and “for all the memes this week”.

The social media giant blamed a “faulty configuration change” for a nearly six-hour outage that prevented the company’s 3.5 billion users from accessing its social media and messaging services such as WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger.

The outage on Monday was the largest that web monitoring group Downdetector had ever seen and blocked access to the apps for billions of users, leading to a surge in usage of rival social media and messaging apps.

(SILICON VALLEY) Facebook Facial Recognition Report: Shutting down facial recognition system and delete face print data of 1 billion users #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.04: This change will represent one of the largest shifts in facial recognition usage in the technology’s history. More than a third of Facebook’s daily active users have opted in to our Face Recognition setting and are able to be recognised, and its removal will result in the deletion of more than a billion people’s individual facial recognition templates…..

#AceSocialDesk says in the coming weeks, Meta will shut down the Face Recognition systemon Facebook as part of a company-wide move to limit the use of facial recognition in our products. As part of this change, people who have opted in to our Face Recognition setting will no longer be automatically recognized in photos and videos, and we will delete the facial recognition template used to identify them.

  • We’re shutting down the Face Recognition system on Facebook. People who’ve opted in will no longer be automatically recognized in photos and videos and we will delete more than a billion people’s facial recognition templates.
  • This change will also impact Automatic Alt Text (AAT), which creates image descriptions for blind and visually-impaired people. After this change, AAT descriptions will no longer include the names of people recognized in photos but will function normally otherwise.
  • We need to weigh the positive use cases for facial recognition against growing societal concerns, especially as regulators have yet to provide clear rules.

Making this change required careful consideration, because we have seen a number of places where face recognition can be highly valued by people using platforms.  For example, our award-winning automatic alt text system, that uses advanced AI to generate descriptions of images for people who are blind and visually impaired, uses the Face Recognition system to tell them when they or one of their friends is in an image. 

For many years, Facebook has also given people the option to be automatically notified when they appear in photos or videos posted by others, and provided recommendations for who to tag in photos. These features are also powered by the Face Recognition system which we are shutting down. 

Looking ahead, we still see facial recognition technology as a powerful tool, for example, for people needing to verify their identity, or to prevent fraud and impersonation. We believe facial recognition can help for products like these with privacy, transparency and control in place, so you decide if and how your face is used. We will continue working on these technologies and engaging outside experts. 

But the many specific instances where facial recognition can be helpful need to be weighed against growing concerns about the use of this technology as a whole. There are many concerns about the place of facial recognition technology in society, and regulators are still in the process of providing a clear set of rules governing its use. Amid this ongoing uncertainty, we believe that limiting the use of facial recognition to a narrow set of use cases is appropriate. 

This includes services that help people gain access to a locked account, verify their identity in financial products or unlock a personal device. These are places where facial recognition is both broadly valuable to people and socially acceptable, when deployed with care. While we will continue working on use cases like these, we will ensure people have transparency and control over whether they are automatically recognized. 

But like most challenges involving complex social issues, we know the approach we’ve chosen involves some difficult tradeoffs. For example, the ability to tell a blind or visually impaired user that the person in a photo on their News Feed is their high school friend, or former colleague, is a valuable feature that makes our platforms more accessible. But it also depends on an underlying technology that attempts to evaluate the faces in a photo to match them with those kept in a database of people who opted-in. The changes we’re announcing today involve a company-wide move away from this kind of broad identification, and toward narrower forms of personal authentication. 

Facial recognition can be particularly valuable when the technology operates privately on a person’s own devices. This method of on-device facial recognition, requiring no communication of face data with an external server, is most commonly deployed today in the systems used to unlock smartphones. 

We believe this has the potential to enable positive use cases in the future that maintain privacy, control and transparency, and it’s an approach we’ll continue to explore as we consider how our future computing platforms and devices can best serve people’s needs. For potential future applications of technologies like this, we’ll continue to be public about intended use, how people can have control over these systems and their personal data, and how we’re living up to our responsible innovation framework

Ending the use of our existing Face Recognition system means the services it enables will be removed over the coming weeks, as will the setting allowing people to opt into the system. 

This will lead to a number of changes:

  • Our technology will no longer automatically recognize if people’s faces appear in Memories, photos or videos.
  • People will no longer be able to turn on face recognition for suggested tagging or see a suggested tag with their name in photos and videos they may appear in. We’ll still encourage people to tag posts manually, to help you and your friends know who is in a photo or video. 
  • This change will also impact Automatic Alt Text (AAT), a technology used to create image descriptions for people who are blind or visually impaired. AAT currently identifies people in about 4% of photos. After the change, AAT will still be able to recognize how many people are in a photo, but will no longer attempt to identify who each person is using facial recognition. Otherwise, AAT will continue to function normally, and we’ll work closely with the blind and visually impaired community on technologies to continually improve AAT. You can learn more about what these changes mean for people who use AAT on the Facebook Accessibility page. 
  • If you have opted into our Face Recognition setting, we will delete the template used to identify you. If you have the face recognition setting turned off, there is no template to delete and there will be no change. 

Every new technology brings with it potential for both benefit and concern, and we want to find the right balance. In the case of facial recognition, its long-term role in society needs to be debated in the open, and among those who will be most impacted by it. We will continue engaging in that conversation and working with the civil society groups and regulators who are leading this discussion.

(NICARAGUA) Facebook Internet Troll Farm Report: META company has removed more than 1,000 fake accounts which it says were part of a disinformation campaign by the government #AceNewsDesk report

😂😂😂

#AceNewsReport – Nov.03: It comes ahead of presidential elections this weekend with the president’s main challengers jailed: The United States has described the election as a sham.

#AceSocialDesk says according to BBC Latin News Report: Nicaragua was accused of running an internet troll farm: All accounts were shut down last month: A fragile leader and his ruthless crackdown on rivals Meta said those who ran the accounts included staff at the telecoms regulator and the Supreme Court.

Daniel Ortega
The accounts were allegedly controlled by Daniel Ortega’s government

The accounts were controlled by Daniel Ortega’s government and the FSLN ruling party, Ben Nimmo, threat intelligence lead for Facebook parent company Meta, told the AFP news agency. 

Facebook closed 937 accounts, 140 pages and 24 groups, as well as 363 Instagram accounts, he said.

The disinformation campaign allegedly began in 2018 as an effort to denigrate the opposition. It spread to other platforms, including TikTok and Twitter. 

In 2018, Mr Ortega’s regime cracked down on protests, killing more than 300 people. Tens of thousands of have since fled into exile.

“The goal was to flood the online conversation in Nicaragua with pro-government and anti-opposition messages,” he said.

Facebook said in a statement the network was “a coordinated effort… to corrupt or manipulate public discourse by using fake accounts to build personas across platforms and mislead people about who’s behind them”.

Analysis suggests that people were posting on the accounts as their day job, with a break for lunch. 

The government has been arresting opponents and critics since June on charges of treason or money-laundering. Many say the charges are baseless and designed to facilitate Mr Ortega’s re-election.

The EU’s foreign policy chief recently called Nicaragua “one of the worst dictatorships in the world”.
