Mötesplatsen Facebook på internet kan bryta mot lagen. Det misstänker datamyndigheten i Sverige och i de andra nordiska länderna. Det var nu under sommaren som det avslöjades att Facebook övervakar de privata chattrummen och att Facebook söker efter speciella ord i de samtal som olika personer kan ha med med varandra där. Det här gillar inte Datainspektionen som ska skydda människors privatliv på internet. Björn Erik Thon som jobbar på Datainspektionen i Norge och är den person som håller i de nordiska ländernas utredning säger att det här är samma sak som om ett telefonbolag avlyssnade alla samtal.
= A partnership between police departments and social media sites discussed at a convention in Philadelphia this week could allow law enforcement to keep anything deemed criminal off the Internet—and even stop people from organizing protests.
I'm still surprised people still use Facebook, that's probably the NSA's most favorite toy in the world. Peop le voluntarely tell the 'internets'(as George Bush would say) on facebook your location, where you grew up, where your favorite locations are, all your friends and family, who are the closest to you, who are your work colleagues, who you went to school with, political/activist pages you 'like', how you sort your contacts, who you are looking for, your dating status, posting your opinions and activities on a regular basis, etc. etc. etc.
Researchers toyed with the feelings of 689,003 randomly selected English-speaking Facebook users by changing the contents of their news feed, according to a paper published http://www.pnas.org/content/111/24/8788 in the June edition of the journal 'Proceedings of the National Academy of Scientists' (PNAS). During a week-long period in January 2012, researchers staged two parallel experiments, reducing the number of positive or negative updates in each user's news feed. "When positive expressions were reduced, people produced fewer positive posts and more negative posts; when negative expressions were reduced, the opposite pattern occurred. These results indicate that emotions expressed by others on Facebook influence our own emotions, constituting experimental evidence for massive-scale contagion via social networks," said the authors of the paper, who include researchers from Facebook, Cornell University, and the University of California. “We also observed a withdrawal effect: People who were exposed to fewer emotional posts (of either valence) in their News Feed were less expressive overall on the following days.”
