HUD.gov / U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD):Thank goodness! Facebook has been enabling racist, sexist, and ageist property-owners to discriminate in whom they rent to, for years now.

The unlikely activists who took on Silicon Valley — and won • The New York Times
Nicholas Confessore:
<p>The way Alastair Mactaggart usually tells the story of his awakening — the way he told it even before he became the most improbable, and perhaps the most important, privacy activist in America — begins with wine and pizza in the hills above Oakland, Calif. It was a few years ago, on a night Mactaggart and his wife had invited some friends over for dinner. One was a software engineer at Google, whose search and video sites are visited by over a billion people a month. As evening settled in, Mactaggart asked his friend, half-seriously, if he should be worried about everything Google knew about him. “I expected one of those answers you get from airline pilots about plane crashes,” Mactaggart recalled recently. “You know — ‘Oh, there’s nothing to worry about.’ ” Instead, his friend told him there was plenty to worry about. If people really knew what we had on them, the Google engineer said, they would flip out…

…He learned that there was no real limit on the information companies could collect or buy about him — and that just about everything they could collect or buy, they did. They knew things like his shoe size, of course, and where he lived, but also roughly how much money he made, and whether he was in the market for a new car. With the spread of smartphones and health apps, they could also track his movements or whether he had gotten a good night’s sleep. Once facial-recognition technology was widely adopted, they would be able to track him even if he never turned on a smartphone.</p>

Thus begins a terrific long read on the man who got California legislators to <a href="https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/06/29/california_data_privacy_law/">pass some worthwhile privacy legislation</a> back in June - because they were terrified that Mactaggart would win a poll to introduce more rigorous privacy legislation. (Thank Jim C for the link.)

Facebook addiction linked to staking your self-worth on social acceptance
An initial survey of 337 participants with an active Facebook account found that social acceptance contingencies were positively related to Facebook addiction symptoms.

In other words, people who agreed with statements such as “My self-esteem depends on the opinions others hold of me” tended to also agree with statements such as “I spend a lot of time thinking about Facebook”, “I am using Facebook in order to forget my personal problems”, and “I use Facebook so much that it has had a negative impact on my job or studies.”

NYT too. Once you notice how they all run the same fake news story, after the 4am drop, the collusion becomes obvious.

And in case you think it’s just slate, they all got their fake news marching orders. We only have 7 corporations in the USA that control ALL of the media, btw, and it shows.

Funny how they don’t mention he’s wanted for murder in Mexico. Fake news media wonder why they don’t have credibility any more.
