Facebook, the epitome of social engineering is "fighting for truth", announcing that they will use a "machine-learning model" (is this AI?) to screen for images and video content being shared on their platform. If something is "flagged", it gets forwarded to "human fact-checkers" who will then review the material, and censor it if it is determined that it is inaccurate.



Knowing how these tech giants operate, I don't feel that they're doing this for the sake of truth (Facebook can push propaganda for theirside still, I'm sure). They aren't doing this to protect its users (the company has been caught selling its users information, spying on them, and all around exploiting and manipulating users all the time, it's part of their business model). Gotta love how companies like Facebook are so well-connected with the media and government that they are now essentially all one-in-the-same...

Facebook to Begin Fact-Checking Memes



Facebook announced Thursday that it would use a machine-learning model to identify potentially inaccurate photo and video content and then send those items to human fact-checkers for review. "Many of our third-party fact-checking partners have expertise evaluating photos and videos and are trained in visual verification techniques, such as reverse image searching and analyzing image metadata, like when and where the photo or video was taken," the company said. Facebook is looking for content that is manipulated, fabricated, or out of context, among other things.


I'm not sure where the EU stands on this issue, but I know earlier in the summer there was outrage when it was reported the the EU would ban memes: Wired Article about EU's Controversial Digital Laws

"MEMES R BAD, MMKAY?"

God damn the left sucks.

Memes are generally supposed to be funny not informative.

The left can't meme, so start filtering what we are allowed to laugh at?

Yup- the censorship is all out in the open, now.

Anything the MSM doesn't want you to hear will be filtered from ALL sources now, not just the news and search engines.

If this is true and they are unbiased,then I know of a dozen liberal pages with millions of followers a piece that will be censored and possibly shut down.....

But...... We all know that's not the case, so....... We'll see where this takes us instead

This is an impossible task.
I can find proof that the economy is booming and tanking at this very moment.

So who gets to decide what are truly facts.

How is that unfettered capitalism working out for you all now.

Perhaps we could now look into the monopoly laws instead of allowing ourselves to be swallowed by mega corporations.
