Information Commissioner’s Office reported to be looking into study in which postings for 700,000 users were secretly altered
Facebook is being investigated to assess whether an experiment in which it manipulated users’ news feeds to study the effect it had on moods might have broken data protection laws, it has been reported.
The Information Commissioner’s Office is said to be looking into the experiment carried out by the social network and two US universities in which almost 700,000 users had their news feeds secretly altered to study the impact of “emotional contagion”.
The ICO said it was too early to tell what part of the law Facebook might have infringed, the Financial Times reported. …
… Many users reacted angrily following online reports of the findings, which were published in the 17 June edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Some referred to it as “creepy”, “evil”, “terrifying” and “super disturbing”. …
‘Facebook has done so many things over the years that scared and freaked out people.’
A Facebook researcher apologized after conducting an experiment that temporarily influenced what almost 700,000 readers saw on their news feeds, reviving some customers’ concerns about privacy issues.
The number of positive and negative comments that users saw on their feeds of articles and photos was altered in January 2012, according to a study published June 17 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. People shown fewer positive words were found to write more negative posts, while the reverse happened with those exposed to fewer negative terms, according to the trial of random Facebook users.
Adam Kramer, a Facebook data scientist who was among study’s authors, wrote on his Facebook page yesterday that the team was “very sorry for the way the paper described the research and any anxiety it caused.”
The data showed that online messages influence readers’ “experience of emotions,” which may affect offline behavior, the researchers said. Some Facebook users turned to Twitter to express outrage over the research as a breach of their privacy.
“Facebook knows it can push its users’ limits, invade their privacy, use their information and get away with it,” said James Grimmelmann, a professor of technology and the law at the University of Maryland. “Facebook has done so many things over the years that scared and freaked out people.”
Even so, the anger won’t have a long-lasting effect, Grimmelmann said. While some users may threaten to leave Facebook, most people “want to be where there friends are” and there is no alternative to the social networking site that provides more privacy, he said. …
… The Facebook study is “really important research” that shows the value of receiving positive news and how it improves social connections, said James Pennebaker, a psychology professor at the University of Texas. Facebook might have avoided some of the resulting controversy by allowing users to opt out of taking part in any research, he said.
“It will make people a little bit nervous for a couple of days,” he said in an interview. “The fact is, Google knows everything about us, Amazon knows a huge amount about us. It’s stunning how much all of these big companies know. If one is paranoid, it creeps them out.” …
Lemme get this straight. One arrogant fuckwit figures no one will quit fb after this mindfuck because everyone’s friends are there? Fucking spare me. It’s ‘their’ friends, not ‘there’ friends too, also. Another arrogant asshole, a university of texASS psychology professor ‘thinks’ that only the paranoid are concerned about all these companies having shedloads of info about us? He sounds just like those “You have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide!” party line-spewing robotic shills.
Cherry Groce lies in her hospital bed after being shot during a police raid at her home in Brixton, south London
Cherry Groce inquest: son wants answers 29 years after mum was shot
Lee Lawrence hopes to find out the truth about the police raid in 1985 that left his mother paralysed from the chest down
The Guardian, Sunday 29 June 2014
Lee Lawrence says he has been waiting for 29 years to get answers from the Metropolitan police about why they shot his innocent mother Cherry Groce in 1985, leaving her paralysed from the chest down.
Officers raided the family’s Brixton home on 28 September 1985, searching for Groce’s son, Michael. He was not there, and did not in fact live there, but during the raid Groce, a mother of eight, was accidentally shot.
On Monday an inquest opens into her death in April 2011 and Lawrence hopes at last to find out the truth about the day his and his family’s life changed forever, with new information about the police operation expected to emerge at the hearing.
The incident sparked riots in Brixton that saw dozens of civilians and 10 police officers injured. Police marksman Inspector Douglas Lovelock was cleared of malicious and unlawful grievous bodily harm in 1987. Earlier this year the Met revealed it had apologised to the family for the shooting of Groce, who died in April 2011.
Lawrence, 39, was just 11 when he witnessed his mother being shot. “I was curled up in my mum’s bed, for me the safest place in the world, when I heard a loud banging, which must have been the police breaking the door down. My mum went to see what was going on and that was when the police shot her.
"I remember screaming, ‘What have you done to my mum?’"
"I heard my mum saying: ‘I can’t move my legs, I can’t breathe, I think I’m going to die.’ At that moment everything in my life changed forever."
Before the shooting Lawrence had been a carefree boy, playing outside and riding his BMX bike with his friends. He had been aware of racism from white skinhead gangs in the area but had never thought about racism from the police. In fact, inspired by cop shows like The Professionals and Starsky & Hutch, he dreamed of becoming a police officer when he grew up. “I wanted to get the bad guys,” he said. …
… Lawrence has many concerns about the Met although he says that he believes there are both good and bad officers. “When I was in my teens I used to get picked up by the police for things I hadn’t done. They would tell me I fitted the description of someone who had just committed a crime and that sort of thing. Once when I was 17 I was put into a police cell. A police officer opened a flap in the cell door and said: ‘Are you Cherry Groce’s son?’ When I replied that I was he said: ‘Pity she didn’t die.’
"We are looking for the Met to prove to us that they have changed in terms of transparency and accountability. We can only talk about change that we can see and feel and I’m not feeling it yet." …
I love my mom.

I AM SORRY FOLLOWERS, I LOVE MY MOMMY

A Glasgow nightclub has installed a two-way mirror which allows male revellers in private booths to spy on unsuspecting women as they visit the toilet! With no notification or signage anywhere in the venue many female club goers have been left feeling embarrassed and used. Although they do briefly show the mirrors in a promo video, the club has been quickly deleting comments and posts on their social media from club goers trying to alert others to the situation. This is pretty much illegal and hugley violates privacy. Thank you The Shimmy Club for giving us a shiny, new, creative and cool take on objectification.
i’m never leaving my house again, this world is just too fucked up.
gross gross gross gross gross
Good morning disgusting.
- “No space, leave the place” (fingernail test)
- A two way mirror must be set INTO the wall, not placed on top of it.
- If you rap/knock against the mirror, one installed onto a wall (a normal mirror) will make a dull sound, because there’s something behind it. A two-way will have more reverberation.
- Use the flashlight on your phone to shine on the mirror, if it’s a two-way, you’ll be able to see into the other room.
- You can also shield your eyes and see in if you lean up against the glass.
- The room being viewed will have to be brightly lit (10x brighter than the room looking in), so if you’re in a typical dimly lit club bathroom, you’re ok.
boosting the fuck out of this
They have this in Continental Midtown in Philly, it’s fucking creepy and not cool at all
the most obvious solution i can think of is to break that motherfucker. what are they going to do? sue you for breaking something they shouldnt have had?
That’s fucking disgusting.
Hey, fellas. You ever feel like you have to check if you’re standing in front of a two-way mirror? Women do.
This needs to be known
Bottle the mirror and that evil git before it.
… In a new blog post, Netflix explains that while transit networks like Level3 and Cogent help carry traffic to every network on the internet, Comcast isn’t performing that role. Comcast isn’t even helping Netflix move the traffic — according to Netflix — but simply acting as a gatekeeper for its own customers. Yet those customers are already theoretically paying Comcast for access to whatever internet content they request, including Netflix, no? “In this way, Comcast is double dipping by getting both its subscribers and Internet content providers to pay for access to each other,” argues Netflix VP of content Ken Florance.
Netflix also suggests that Comcast intentionally allowed its connections to existing transit providers like Cogent and Level3 to clog up in order to force the issue, but it’s not clear who is actually at fault. No one wants to pay to upgrade the pipes if they can pass the costs to someone else. …
Ta much, TheMadMinstrel!
This is an update to the Diary I wrote yesterday.
Tea Party Militia Leader, Richard Mack has been pretending he’s a bad ass for years. But when he and his Tea Party brethren went to help millionare rancher, Cliven Bundy violently violate a Court order, they proved they are nothing but a bunch of gun-toting, wimpy-ass loud mouths who planned to use women as human shields against any potential gun battle they initiated with the Federal government.
MACK: “We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front. If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.” …
