I'm sure that diligent, truth-seeking Americans not only want to know, but are willing to admit that they "liked" and "shared" memes, photos, and commented on fake stories. I mean, the brainwashed are always eager to undo the damage!
as the CIA doesn't operate domestically.
While the primary operational grounds of the CIA are indeed outside the US, it is permitted to act within the US to address the specific areas of foreign intelligence, counter-intelligence, and terrorism. The CIA has branch offices in several cities in the US. Some of these are simple liaison with critical industries on issues such as computer security. Others serve to keep watch on international espionage efforts, intelligence defectors, and the like.
Nixon In 1971, the NSA and CIA were engaged in domestic spying. The DOD was eavesdropping on Kissinger. The White House, and Camp David were wired for sound. Nixon and Kissinger were eavesdropping on their aides, as well as reporters. Famously, Nixon's Plumbers had in their number many former CIA agents, including Howard Hunt, Jim McCord, and Eugenio Martinez.

I "like" what friends of mine post that winds up on my timeline all the time. Half the time I totally disagree with what they are posting, but they are my friends and I do not want to start pissing them off. Most of my facebook friends I am either related to or they have been friends of mine for thirty or more years. Or their parents were.
I don't see the point of Facebook doing this, don't they realize that people just give likes sometimes to boost someone's happiness a bit. Their management must be totally disconnected from reality if they can't see that happening. Most people do not want to be rude to others that are real friends. Real friends are ones you know from real life engagement with them, not internet buddies. I don't know if posts on the net are even real, they could be generated by a computer or someone getting paid to spread lies.
Facebook won't last another ten years, they will chase away all their patrons.
Sometimes I like a friends post with out even looking at it just to alert them that I am online and they should pm me.
I can't be the only person that does stuff like that .
I have also liked stuff I didn't agree with at all just because I liked the girl posting it...
But personally I would like to see if I liked any russian propaganda. I mean I'll remember if it was something I agreed with. And this would be an incite into how governments interact with each other that we normally don't see.

I admire the sentiment but my friends know if they link me to crap they get unfriended PDQ. I don't want it, don't wanna see it an especially don't want associated with it. Employers DO check out your social media and I'd prefer to not appear to be a brain damaged idiot.
If their junk is that important they can email it to me.
Plus who believes that FB can or will tell you what's Russian Propaganda???!!!!

originally posted by: Kettu Well, I'm sure this is going to go over really well with people who use Facebook and support Trump! (obvious sarcasm is obvious)...I'm sure that diligent, truth-seeking Americans not only want to know, but are willing to admit that they "liked" and "shared" memes, photos, and commented on fake stories. I mean, the brainwashed are always eager to undo the damage! Since Facebook got a bit of a black eye hosting and allowing Russian propaganda, it seems they're making an attempt to clean their conscious:
Facebook will soon release a tool that lets users see if they liked or followed any Russian propaganda during the 2016 election, the tech giant announced Wednesday. The tool will reveal to users whether they interacted with Facebook or Instagram accounts operated by the Internet Research Agency, a St. Petersburg-based company believed to have been employed by the Kremlin to spread political messages throughout the election. The tool will apply only to content users may have interacted with between January 2015 and August 2017. Facebook expects to roll it out by the end of the year.I suppose knowledge is half the battle, but given the numbers of people likely exposed, I wonder how many people will actually pause and consider the things they're shown?
“It is important that people understand how foreign actors tried to sow division and mistrust using Facebook before and after the 2016 US election,” the company said in its announcement.Link In the end, however, I doubt anyone here on ATS or elsewhere will for one second believe that their incredible intellect was toyed with by Russian propaganda. I mean, we're the "woke generation"! Nothing slides by us! We see the puppet masters behind the scenes! I'm reminded of a joke I saw recently that sadly likely reflects many Trump voters:
In September, Facebook revealed that a likely Russian-based operation spent $100,000 on thousands of ads promoting divisive political messages and that it had since deleted the accounts posting them. More than half of all eligible voters in the U.S. were exposed to that Russian propaganda between January 2015 and August 2017.
Two conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. Now that they have the chance to ask any question of God, one of them asks "Who was REALLY responsible for 9/11?". God responds "A group of Al-Qaeda terrorists led by Osama Bin Laden and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed." The conspiracy theorist gulps and turns to his friend. "Damn. This goes even higher up than we thought."
No matter how much Russia hacked, influence or interfered, most everyone who went and made him the winner by voting, did so because HILLARY CLINTON IS CORRUPT! More corrupt than anyone, or even everyone else combined.
So your entire thesis is a complete joke.
Hillary lost because she is a POS plain and simple. (And a really nasty one at that).

Fakebook is the bastion of truth, full of benevolence, trying to help humanity #resist the recent realization that government is corrupt, all because of Trump and the Russians!!!
Great Thread Kettu, you are doing us all a major service in making us aware that we can rely on Fakebook to be the arbiters of reality!
Enjoy your cognitive dissonance for free, using Fakebook!!
LOL Fakebook to inform users! You really can not make this s*** up, freaking priceless!
