Please, explain how it is a false equivalencey.




They're not even REMOTELY similar in scope.


Yes, you've made that assertion twice now. Please explain.

According to the Democrat party you are wrong.

Do you like making up words?


Nor particularly. What are you referring to?

The liberal media also said the $100,000 that 13 indicted Russian BOTS spent on ads, helped to swing the election for Trump also.

BTW.. Did Hillary give the Russian BOTS as a reason for her loss, like she's now claiming that Cambridge Analytica sabotaged her?

I DOUBT Facebook and Google (between the TWO of them) have 4-5 THOUSAND data points on 220 MILLION Americans.

CA gathered info from a MUCH WIDER net that just FB and Google.

Spectrum Health...hmmm...



Hahaha!

Yep, no way Google and Facebook have that much data on ameircans!

Hahaha!!!

Thats a good one.

But just for the fun of it, please give me the cut off on how much data is allowed to be used that makes you a smart campaigner, as opposed to a scandalous criminal?

If Obama only used 100 million data points, thats ok?

Or should we just be safe and say whatever the exact number trump supporters used was wrong, and the exact number Obama used was perfectly legitimate.

Did Obama have 4,000 to 5,000 data points on 220 MILLION Americans?

Oh wait...

That was Cambridge Analytica.


Enlighten me, how many "data points" did Obama have on X many Americans? Or don't you know? Where are you getting the 220 million Americans figure by the way?

As others have pointed out.. Obama had Google wrapped around his metaphorical finger The Intercept Article (just like the corporate and private individual sponsors of Obama had HIM wrapped around their finger)

During his time that was considered smart. Now people are upset. They gave too much info out for free. After he got his second term I stopped using social media. Oddly Trump still likes it. He likes Twitter as I like my voice.

It's interesting that 5 years could cause such a turnaround. What made Americans so sensitive to this harvesting and using personal data in such a short period of time?

I'm not a Facebook or Twitter subscriber. Never had the urge. What do these platforms do to members that's so insulting? They call you at home, or present you with customized ads related to your favorite brand of boxer shorts?


What made people change their minds?

Well the media and the left hat trump, so whatever he does is evil.

It literally that simple.

Obama Pressures Facebook to Censor News; Zuckerberg Complies and Crushes Trump on Facebook



Facebook has caved to Democrat political pressure and is censoring newsfeeds on users’ pages, as Mark Zuckerberg explains, for their own good. The progressives at Facebook have gone nuclear.



At first Zuckerberg resisted the Resistance, but then he caved suddenly, following a personal intervention by Obama.

The results of Obama’s intervention are in:

Engagement on Donald Trump’s Facebook posts has dropped by approximately 45 percent since the platform introduced a new algorithm change, following a year of pressure from left-wing employees and the mainstream media for “allowing” the President to win the 2016 general election.


😁

But that doesnt matter.

Having the people who run facebook give you access to all of their data, and censoring people who dislike you on your side is nothing compared to a company using a small portion of whats on facebook to help the other guy.

Just like a few twitter bots from russia are a huge deal that stole the election, but the people who run twitter being cheerleaders for the democratic party, and doing all they can to censor the dems opponents is just an innocent small item.

Not even in the same reality or universe.

False equivalency.



I am putting up a president of the USA and their use of google and facebook to.... a president of the USA and their use of google and facebook.

You call this a false equivalency.

I'm going to assume that you have no earthly idea what false equivalency actually means.

Thank you... I was going to limit my use of ATS to light humor.

I will be nice and put you and your post there.

As an aside, I would also like to know how many data points Obama had when he got control of the FBI, CIA, NSA, IRS, DIA, INR, ISR, NSB, INSCOM, The Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence, CGI, The Office of Intelligence and Analysis, DEA, DHA, ODNI, can we stop here?

— 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies are working on intelligence, counterterrorism, or homeland security in the U.S.

— Just the NSA alone is contracting with more than 250 companies on intelligence work, including big names like Northrop Grumman and SAIC.

THAT is what Obama had control over.

But but.... Russian bots.

Actually, he had the full backing of Facebook and Google. They allowed him full use of their databases.

Google had a satellite office in the west wing, ffs.

It's the same old same old... Dems do it then it's fine, Reps do it and it's bad.

That I had to type this to someone is just sad.


Me again. Hope you are feeling better.

About your post.

I think from what I googled (with my hand cranked computer - you were pretty witty), Obama used fund raising and direct appeals to potential voters. He put spin on issues.

It seems CA used lists of all voters in the US to do the same, but also manufacture completely false news stories, hide sources, and deliberately misinformvoters. Voters were targeted, as were groups. The goal was to breed disention among voters and cause Americans to polerize.

A deliberate attempt to divide americans, not to win short term goals or elections, but to weaken our country.

The methodology they used slowly moves attitudes.

We all might have been affected, to some degree.

I did not vote for Trump or any Clinton ever. But I am concerned about this new method to change our attitudes. 1984 scary.

Not bashing Trump here, just concerned that a company can use social media data to influence opinions slowly without us tracking the effects.

All for a few million dollars.

Eta: saw the CEO of CA on a report today. Pretty cocky. Said Trump and all candidates are puppets. Said house intel commity was a joke. Said the algorithms they use slowly change attitudes. Said they bribe, use honey pots, extortion etc to win elections.

CA also has the lead contest for Trumps 2020 run.

Scary.

If CA wasnt in cahoots with Facebook or Google, then who was delivering their targeted ads for them?

Without such, how was this info even being used besides fancy voter trend etc data reports for the campaign to look at?
(which we've seen the DNC racial targetting style reports in the Podesta emails, which liberals immediately declared as nothing to see there, of course).

You see when you're in cahoots ala getting infos direct from FaceGoogle, then you take that data, THEY HELP YOU FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH IT (like CA would do), then FaceGoogle go and directly target individualized ad deliver to everyone for the campaign, well.......
If it were a video game it'd be called God Mode.

Now when we're talking about being in cahoots with Google, which Trump was not, those mofos record all of our phone calls, ave as audio files AS WELL AS auto-transcribe it all to text files for the AI's to study, and its safe to surmise the microphone records the rest of the audio it picks up in the microphone as well (since they bragged about doing that on peoples PC desktop microphones years before anyone had ever even heard of a "Smart Phone").

You wanna talk about "data points" mofos... how do you even enumerate the potential "data points" each total for each person that data set amounts to??? Now factor in the phone audio data is only one slice of the supreme pizza of datas Google God collects chronicles catalogs on everyone.

Dude.

You do fine work here.

Relax and do some more.

I read a lot of your stuff earlier today and it was quality -you made your points and did it in a way that shows thought.

Please contine, and keep the respect folks have for you.

Don't let folks make you so crazy that you lose respect.

I don't know if I agree with you 100%, but everyone can discuss without getting down to lowest level.

Trolls gonna troll bro.

Chill a bit.

Get back to doing fine work and make us proud on Ats, even if we don't all agree.

Thanks again for your contributions!

Everytime you sign on a social site, they have you check a box that they can share your information. This has been going on for a decade. Now all of a sudden these short term memory morons decide that it is a bad thing.

Hello, facebook has been sharing you data for years and the Democrats are the best at harvesting it.
