The Graph API: Key Points in the Facebook and Cambridge Analytica Debacle
Reporters should be able to convey in broad terms how users’ personal data was obtained with the Graph API v1.0, and explain to readers why their data was open to mass collection purposes. This will help provoke questions and scenarios about how it was used and where it might have ended up. This technological literacy is a prerequisite to informed reporting on what Cambridge Analytica, Facebook and other political propaganda and media manipulation events mean for society, elections, and the future of technology and democracy.

How do you like me now? Positivity and the death of Facebook | Overland literary journal
"It is disingenuous and undesirable, covertly transforming an expression of enthusiasm to mercantile venture. (Of course, one can define like to include wanting something (‘I would like that box of sour apples’) but even within this money-related definition, the relationship is a direct one, between the party who likes and the apples/apple vendor). By subtly commodifying the button, Facebook enriches itself as a third party. The information was not found on their site and they have performed no service.

Within Facebook’s utopian vision of an ‘open and connected world’, this action rings hollow. No one cares that Facebook makes money, but this method – using a symbol of positive naivety – is disingenuous, untrue, and hypocritical. By structuring their information retrieval around the Like button, Facebook have potentially created a great irony, in which their highjacking of positivity results in a swelling discontent, and in time, an exodus."

Facebook Graph Search Is Humorless, Creepy And Doomed To Disappoint | TechCrunch
"Cumulative, joined-up data is simply not the same beast as data that’s distributed and at least partially disconnected. And by pretending that joining up all those disconnected dots is no big deal, Facebook is being dishonest and dumb. Plenty of people won’t care what quasi-identity Facebook gives them, but there will be others who decide there’s no benefit to them of being on Facebook’s public record. Indeed, that removing their contribution is the most sensible response to its behaviour. In real life only stalkers and psychos keep databases on their friends.

Share out pieces of a jigsaw puzzle between your friends, family, lovers and strangers and it would need a freak accident to gather the whole odd-ball collection in one place to put the picture together. But even that metaphor is way too simplistic. The point is: there is no one you. And any algorithm that tries to create one by joining your disparate dots is pitifully reductive – and doomed to fail by overpromising, under delivering and being really really creepy while it flounders around trying to impress you."

Graph Search's Dirty Promise and the Con of the Facebook "Like" - steve's blog
"The numbers are shocking in magnitude: e.g. over the past several years AmEx actually spent about half of its ad spend on buying likes—tens of millions of dollars. Your friends didn’t just go to the American Express fan page and “like” the company for no apparent reason. They did so because they got something."

Facebook Graph Search: Zuckerberg reveals origin of Google privacy rift | Technology |
"It is significant because, if correct (and Google refuses to comment), it adds to the emerging theory that Google's highly complex search algorithms are increasingly at odds with the social web."
