But the picture is not the same as the departure of people who talk about having blood on their hands.
I spoke last week with a former researcher whose badge I did not see in the Facebook Papers. He told me that he would stay in the room and give examples of users he spoke to, who had been abused or harassed. “And there are no women at production meetings,” she says. “We as secretive and security investigators can provide these shocking reports, such as ‘Here is one woman I spoke to, and in the course of the day, she received 40 direct messages from people she did not know. She was being abused.’ But you have to be realistic, and sometimes you just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people. ”
And often the problem does not go away. “If you’re a ‘low-end manager’ you could be doing the best job in the world, but if you don’t get the X number of new users to sign up, you won’t get your bonus, or you won’t get a” promotion, “he says. To address these issues, “The way the company supports marketing teams needs to change,” he adds.
Another problem: Facebook was created to reject such changes. Making changes to content to protect security or reduce false information in things like News Feed also affects activities from multiple groups, sometimes in pairs. As we have seen in one sign, the change in fidelity that creates security needs to be approved by a number of departments. But it only takes one “no” to prevent this change from happening.
The biggest downside is that the denials that come from the top Facebook feed. “Integrity groups face increasing barriers to security,” the researcher said in a badge on August 25, 2020. Excessive pressure or pressure from decision-makers – often based on fear of governmental responses and those affected by the decision … Out of fear potential public responses and policy concerns, we are to know exposing users to the risk of integrity. ”
I have spent many hours over the last few years talking with Facebook staff, including Mark Zuckerberg, and entry into the water in which the company operates. However, I found the Facebook Papers to be a revelation — not because they have great surprises of weaknesses, controversies, and inconsistencies created by Facebook and its leaders, but because it reveals how well those leaders are aware of platform errors. In the last few weeks, comparisons between Facebook and Big Tobacco have become popular. But Nick Clegg pushed back the parable, and I agree with him. There is nothing wrong with smoking: No cigarette butts are controlled by cigarettes, and they kill you. Instead, when I look at the post – which confirms that many of the negative things we heard on Facebook were told in depth and written by investigators and submitted to corporate executives – I think of other company problems, which occurred two years before Mark Zuckerberg was born.
Early in the morning in September 1982, parents of 12-year-old Mary Kellerman in Chicago at Elk Grove found their daughter dying in the bathroom. A few hours earlier, she had complained of a cold, and her parents gave her one tablet of Extra-Strength Tylenol, the most popular drug of all kinds for minor ailments. His was one of three people who died of poisoning that day, and each victim took Tylenol-containing cyanide caps. The death toll could be as high as 7.
