Edward Snowden:Facebook はソーシャル・メディアを詐称した「市民を監視する組織」だ


Facebook Is A Surveillance Company Rebranded As "Social Media"

Facebook makes their money by exploiting and selling intimate details about the private lives of millions, far beyond the scant details you voluntarily post. They are not victims. They are accomplices. https://t.co/mRkRKxsBcw

Google 思想警察が新たな検閲を開始:ショッピング表示から銃を消し去る


On February 26, Twitter users LADowd and Xavier Dreyman noticed that results in the most-used search engine in the world were returning nothing in the “Shopping” tab when any query included a gun part, model, or manufacturer.

His first result was for the rather broad term of “rifle scope”. This netted zero results while providing just two sponsored results below the main search. Curiosity must’ve taken over and he continued on looking for “remington razor” which also netted a whopping 0 results. Turns out, the problem was that Remington is most known for firearms.

Twitter users became even more curious. Myself and others decided to test this and any shopping result for anything related to “Remington”, “Glock”, and “Colt” turns up nothing. Twitter user “Stigcicle” found a more concise list that includes censoring “Steyr”, an Australian town has the misfortune of sharing the name with a gun manufacturer. This includes shopping for parts for your Dodge Colt; if you still have one it is likely in need of many parts anyway.

In order to verify, I took a video of the search results to confirm. Sure enough, it returns 0 results.

・Scott Adams は資産家だから、総額で数百ドルの寄付金など無も同然だろうが(この動画の中で「昨日、ミシュランで三ツ星評価のレストランへ行って彼女と一緒に食事した。アルコールなしで $1200 かかった」と語っている…w)、それでも寄付金は「完全に行動パターンが変化するほどの精神的な影響」があった…という。

Facebook と Google は、Orwell や Huxley の描いた悪夢を超える脅威となる


・この Blog ではソーシャル・メディアとの連携は行わない主義。その理由はソーシャル・メディアは益よりも害悪の方が遥かに大きいと判断しているため。

・最近になってソーシャル・メディアの危険性を訴える声が高まってきたようだ。たとえば Yuval Harari や Soros もその危険性を訴えている。


"Even Orwell And Huxley Couldn't Imagine The Threat Posed By Facebook And Google"

In addition to warning that U.S. President Donald Trump represents an immense “danger” to civilization, billionaire George Soros used the spotlight of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday to urge the international community to take seriously the threats posed by Facebook and Google, which he said could ultimately spawn “a web of totalitarian control” if they are not reined in.

Particularly alarming, Soros said, is the prospect of Facebook and Google - which he scathingly deemed a “menace” to society - teaming up with “authoritarian states” to “bring together nascent systems of corporate surveillance with an already developed system of state-sponsored surveillance.”

Such “unholy marriages” could result in a strain of authoritarianism “the likes of which not even Aldous Huxley or George Orwell could have imagined,” the billionaire investor cautioned.

Soros went on to compare the tech giants’ impact on the internet - and social media in particular - to the effects of fossil fuel giants on the environment.

・Soros はソーシャル・メディアを支配ツールにして社会を操る側だと思っていたが、その彼がソーシャル・メディア批判を始めるとは意外。

・Zuckerberg が Soros の言うことを聞かないだけではなく、勝手に大統領になりたがったりして生意気過ぎるので…ということかもw。
