Unfortunately this is the only place I could find this video. Maybe someone with better skills can find it encase FB takes it down. Take the time to check it out if you haven’t already seen it.
We all know what “Big Tech” has been doing, especially to Conservatives, any clear thinking person can not deny it. Just think of the implications for the upcoming elections and beyond, if they can decide they don’t want you to know about this one person, what else can they hide from you? What are they keeping from you?
According to WSJ, the Office for Civil Rights in the Department of Health and Human Services “will seek to learn more information about this mass collection of individuals’ medical records to ensure that HIPAA protections were fully implemented.”
Project Nightingale gives Google access to tens of millions of patients’ names, health histories, date of birth, lab results, diagnoses and hospitalization records from Ascension.
The health system reportedly didn’t tell doctors and patients that it’s sharing data with the tech giant, which is using the information to design new AI-powered software.
Of course as I’m sure you’r aware, there is plenty more to share on the subject of what the “Big Tech’s” are doing to the country and the information they have on you and me along with plenty of opinions on what to do about. For know though, don’t you think the people that are elected to supposedly be our voices should be focusing on more important thing instead of this sham impeachment circus?
If you have any kind of representation in the House or Senate please contact them and ask them to do something. It’s just about to late, it won’t be long before “Big Tech” IS the government and we won’t be able to do a thing about it.
I would but I’m in California. It wouldn’t do me any good I have people like Nancy Pelosi , Shifty’ Schiff , Mad Maxine Waters and Dianne Feinstein, (is she even still alive?) as my representatives.
Wow, I posted a couple days ago the same thing was happening to my FB page News and Headlines.
November 7 at 9:03 AM I wondered what was going on. Every time I see a spike in traffic on my FB page News and Headlines I get a notice.
Best I can tell because FB doesn’t give details and tells me to views “Community Standers”, except on a couple of detail warnings is because some post I share don’t tow “The Party Line” or “PC’ view on Climate Change.
A year or two ago some post had up to 10,000- 16,000 views, then FB said they made some kind of mistake and views went down to just 10 to 20 after FB fixed the “mistake”. Now since Tuesday I haven’t got any views or engagements.
But FB says they don’t censor content. Hmmm, go figure.
Now today They haven’t unpublished my page yet but did change the type of warning I got after I posted about it.
I still haven’t had one visitor to my FB since Tuesday.
The following is the notice I got from WordPress. I haven’t heard anything from Facebook yet though.
“Your website’s connection to Facebook is changing soon“
“We wanted to update you about an upcoming change Facebook is introducing to their platform, and which affects how you may share posts from your website to your Facebook account.
Starting August 1, 2018, third-party tools can no longer share posts automatically to Facebook Profiles. This includes Publicize, the WordPress.com tool that connects your site to major social media platforms (like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook).
Will this affect your ability to share content on Facebook? It depends. If you’ve connected a Facebook Profile to your site, then yes: Publicize will no longer be able to share your posts to Facebook. On the other hand, nothing will change if you keep a Facebook Page connected to your site — all your content should still appear directly on Facebook via Publicize. (Not sure what the difference is between a Page and a Profile? Here’s Facebook’s explanation.) You can review and change your social sharing settings by heading to My Site(s) → Sharing on WordPress.com.
If you’ve previously connected a Facebook Profile to your WordPress.com site and still want your Facebook followers to see your posts, you have two options. First, you could go the manual route: once you publish a new post, copy its URL and share the link in a new Facebook post. The other option is to convert your Facebook Profile to a Page. This might not be the right solution for everyone, but it’s something to consider if your website focuses on your business, organization, or brand.
While Facebook says it is introducing this change to improve their platform and prevent the misuse of personal profiles, we believe that eliminating cross-posting from WordPress is another step back in Facebook’s support of the open web, especially since it affects people’s ability to interact with their network (unless they’re willing to pay for visibility) We know that this might cause a disruption in the way you and your Facebook followers interact, and if you’d like to share your concerns with Facebook, we urge you to head to their Help Community to speak out.” End of Notice.
I know a lot of people have left Facebook and I don’t use it as much as I did before,(Mostly just for my site) and try to keep my friends count at or under a 100
I have mixed feelings. I have both, a personal Profile and Page for my site (News and Headlines.) I do have my site connected to my Facebook person Profile, I guess I’ll just post it manually, bit of a pain.
My site isn’t really a Conservative site but I was thinking the left has control of the Media and we all know the big three Social Media giants censor Conservatives. Do you think Conservative websites will be effected by this change?
Do you think the other giants ,Google and Twitter will follow Facebook?
I contacted WordPress a few weeks ago to ask if the where going to update the share buttons for the new Social Media outlets like MeWe, Minds, Codias, Gab. The only reply back I got was, “Good question, I’ll look into it” but haven’t heard anything else.
“When was the last time you spoke with your friends or family about internet privacy? Sadly, for most people, the answer is never. In general, people believe that only a small percentage of people care about privacy, and while we know that isn’t true, it is something that keeps most people from talking about privacy.”Privacy Mythbusting #1: Nobody else cares about privacy! (Umm, yes they do.)
I’ve deleted everything in my Yahoo account and closed it. I will not respond to anyone with a Yahoo account at the end of their email. I’m slowly moving away from the “Big Three” FaceBook, Google and Twitter. Maybe not moving away but definitely building and giving myself options. This is how it started a few weeks ago for me. I got my Yahoo “Terms Of Service Privacy Notice” and posted this.
I did and this is what I wrote and Tweeted back to them in segments.
“First of thank you for finally listing to your users and deleting all the “Photos” you stored. I hope they are truly deleted and not stored somewhere. I’m not aware of ever giving you permission to do that.
You Tweeted back and suggested I come here.
I am very displeased that you feel the need to scan emails related to banking and financial information, not to mention that the sites you own are allowed to scan emails, instant messages, photos, and other user data and that the agreement also says that the data may be shared with Oath’s parent company, Verizon.
With all the news about data sharing and privacy concerns(not to mention the data that has been hacked and stolen from you in the past) I’m amazed that a large corporation like yours would double down on a policy like this as if to say screw you joe blow public.
We should have an option to opt out of data sharing. Big companies like yours can still get plenty of revenue from sponsors and paid advertisement.
I would like to see you drop the law suit you joined suing California Consumer Privacy Act as Facebook has.”
Never heard anything more from Yahoo until three days ago, this was their response.
Yahoo feedback response.
So, that’s what I just finished doing today. It took me a couple days because I had to do some research and look for a new email provider. I never really gave email much of a thought.
When I first started using the INTERNET back in the 90″s I just went with the flow pretty much like everyone else I assume. What a journey it’s been, growing, adapting and watching all the changes. Those of you that are old enough, remember AOL. It was about the only game in town so to speak and once you figured out there was more things available to you trying to get out of AOL was a nightmare to say the least.
I’m on a budget and just want basics free email service with a reasonable expectation of privacy. If you really want to take privacy serious you can pay for it or get into encryption but that seams pretty time consuming to me, slow and every one has to have a key and be up on it. You can also go dark of course but thats slow too and you have to take a lot into consideration and make some adjustments.
Anyways I’ve got two email accounts one for the Big Three, Facebook, Google and Twitter with no contact info or personal info in the account. Another for regular email and the other social media outlets I’m on. I’ve been gradually switching, using, moving to the other social media outlet’s for awhile now, moving away from the Big Three and their tracking, censoring and spying. I’ve been on Codias for awhile now and Minds for about a month, really enjoying Minds a lot of good people and mix. Just started using Gab and joined Me We. All looking pretty good and promising. I’ve been using Opera for my browser for about a year now and loving it and also use DuckDuckGo for search now.
If you follow Tucker Carlson He’s done some good reporting on the “Tech Giants” privacy and control. Heres the latest from last night. “In recent years, the digital video monopoly YouTube, which is part of the digital search monopoly Google, has been accused of trying to silence conservative viewpoints – an accusation they deny. The digital monopolies demand that we conform to their views, have too much power and are a threat to our country.” Tucker: Why YouTube’s alleged censorship matters
I know why the progressives and left don’t give a crap or want to do anything about the Big Three.
“calling the concerns a “conspiracy theory,” even as they defended tech giants’ right to censor content on the basis of political viewpoint.
But unless ‘The People” start to take it seriously or do something about it for themselves, things aren’t going to change. You definitely can’t count on elected officials to take “Privacy” or “Personal Security” seriously, there’s just to much money on the line.
With all of the recent news and headlines about Facebook and all the big tech companies tracking us, sharing our information with little or no options for us to do anything about it. I’ve been thinking why isn’t Yahoo in the news? They certainty should be.
I don’t want government involved in much of anything with the exception of the way the founders originally planned for government involvement in states and our personal lives. But I think there should be some type of legislation that forbids these big tech companies from collecting, storing or sharing our personal info. There should be some way to do it.
“Verizon’s Oath, which owns both Yahoo and AOL, has updated its privacy policies with new information concerning what the company is allowed to do with user data. The company’s recently updated policies state that the sites it owns are allowed to scan emails, instant messages, photos, and other user data. The agreement also says that the data may be shared with Oath’s parent company, Verizon.
Another thing worth noting about Oath’s privacy policies is its section regarding banking information. As CNET reports, the company does scan emails related to banking and financial information. Their terms of service state that Oath may “… analyze user content around certain interactions with financial institutions.”
I didn’t take the time to read the encyclopedia type update. Who does and that’s the point I’m sure.
Yahoo. Privacy update.
A couple day’s after the update I couldn’t sign in to my email account, was probably hacked, I had to change my password.
This morning I was going to get started on deleting a lot of my contact’s. I really only have need of a few anymore. Now I’m thinking of just deleting the account and using another service. But which one? And what a pain that’s going to be, letting others know about the change and contacting services I use. And what if I let someone know of my change and they use Yahoo? Then I guess Yahoo would still be able to access my info.
Awhile back and usually I don’t do this but this time when they updated the service I changed to the new email. When I did I noticed a folder with photos. I thought I don’t have photos stored in email. I took a look and every thing I ever uploaded are looked at from friends or downloaded was there. That includes legal and personal stuff.
I deleted the important personal stuff like social security number and other legal stuff but Yahoo only gives the option to delete one at a time, no select all and delete. Who has time to go through and one at a time delete laterally years of email history.
Of course there are plenty of complaints about it but Yahoo doesn’t care or show any signs of writing some simple coed to have a select all delete option.
I don’t do it any more, haven’t for years but I used to go to a site or other banking type sites strait from links in the email when they contacted me. Now I wait till I sign out off the email account and go directly to the site or service to communicate with them.
To me this is just straight up invasion of privacy and there is no choice in the mater. Something has to change!
Maybe the only way to insure privacy is to opt out of the”Go paperless option” many offer and go back to snail mail.
“A remarkable and sobering new analysis of Internet privacy being released Thursday finds that a majority of the world’s cyber experts believe that keeping secrets on the Web will be “a luxury,” and that the public will eventually accept it as the “new default.”
In a massive survey of 2,511 of the world’s top tech experts, the Pew Research Center found that 55 percent believe that efforts by governments or industry to build a secure privacy infrastructure by 2025 will fail, while 45 percent believe some type of system will be in place.”
“As Sun Microsystems chief executive Scott McNealy famously said nearly 15 years ago, “You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.”
As unpopular as that viewpoint was at the time, McNealy was right. Dead right. I actually think that’s what upset all the consumer privacy advocates and watchdog groups back in 1999. That the guy had the guts to speak the truth.
And you know what? After all these years, people still don’t get it. We did this to ourselves.”
