Morning everybody. How you doing today? I want to talk about social media from the perspective of Zur. How do you make sense of anything? That's on social media, but we've seen for the last two-and-a-half maybe three years report after report after report that for influencers are trying to affect us elections.

And then of course any kind of scratch below the surface, you see that there's a lot of disinformation campaigns. There was a report last week where domestic interest in the US than trying to push out very specific and bias against very selections. And of course, you know, a lot of people are saying these are influencer platforms built the question comes down to motivation of what type of influence do we want on these platforms well, What is going to happen for the most egregious cases? So we saw that in a case of foreign influence in US domestic and interfering interfering are influencing factors of the platform's doing anything is because the platforms to do is to influence people pay for all this stuff, but there are some nice on Facebook announced that they've completed another stage of the investigation into the breach that effective 30 million users and multiple.

National our nation state interests were very much that it was the system. Super surprised given the type of attack. It wasn't very useful for nation states and they could do some social harvesting and things like that, but they're far more likely to influence through fake news and having a snowball into organic at that point.

I related to Twitter. Twitter released and cash of tweets from my account send a ranian are related interest that they say were involved in activities around the election things like that. So to help educate the patterns were seen but more importantly What appears in the time on it between was taken down for violating Footers rules? You are going to see a placeholder for that tweets from Twitter.

This tweet was removed for a violation of our rules or policy and a link to that policy. And if you report content between you don't see it was from you to see that place over and I don't make the user experience and better than from a user perspectives that you're getting more information.

This is really what I wanted to come back to me. As far as these three separate news articles today was that users of social media we need to educate ourselves. So we know that the platform providers have a very buy it for you this day on the platforms. They want to make money off the platforms with an accurate profile in order to Target.

That's the day that I put in there which is information about my habits my interest that it creates a profile that they can Target ads to Tyler's not with us either but there's a balance there any way to advertise this balance, but the more stuff they can do to offer some transparency to show us the extreme edges of this thing.

So Twitter releasing the cache of tweets that they already pulled down to know things have been pulled down and Facebook. You don't continue to update us on this investigation a profile on Twitter and you see a bunch of removals have at the account still active will you know, you can trust that account left last because they've been significantly penalized under Twitter's rules, and we know that takes a heck of a lot to get Twitter do I get out of bed and if you unblock an account or to start taking action against account to this information that we can use same with Facebook telling us that you know, this is a spammer operation.

We need more data there but the more they tell us the more we can educate ourselves so that when we're consuming information on these networks long is he cute or not, but we need more tools as users to make informed decisions about what we're reading. What were viewing what we're listening to is it from a legitimate source.

Is it from a source that you should trust trust completely trust someone, you know what level of authenticity what level of credibility should be assigned of the continent were consuming instead of just consuming it formation. We get the better we can educate ourselves and we can help raise the bar raise the quality of conversation on this platform self install these articles and put them in the comments.

I'm as always. Let me know what you think. I talk to me online at Mark NCAA on all social networks. For those of you on the blogs in the comments down below email me at Mark and. CA how do you verify information on social networks? How do you assign credibility? So just in Sinkhole, are there any tips and tricks because I think this is a great time, and I hope solutely hoping honestly earnestly hope that we seek a lot more from the social media platforms on giving us the tools to make these evaluations ourselves right now.

They're trying to add a whole bunch of content moderator stuff to make the decisions themselves. Why not? Just give us tools an indicator so that we can evaluate the content and then they can leave it to be more neutral. I know that doesn't want with their business model, but still one can hope I hope you have a fantastic day.

I will talk to you online and I'll see you on the show tomorrow. Morning everybody. How you doing today? I want to talk about social media from the perspective of Zur.
