    Most Facebook users couldn’t care less
    At this point everyone plugged into the zeitgeist knows about how Russian cyber agents used Facebook to create distrust and division among American voters in an attempt to influence the 2016 presidential election. Despite that scandal, billions of Facebook users still log into the social network at least once a month.

    Facebook's latest scandal will leave it unscathed

    Facebook doesn't seem to be at risk of losing many users as a result of its platform being used as a tool by foreign governments.

    FACEBOOK’S HATE SPEECH NIGHTMARE IS NEVER, EVER GOING AWAY

    Mark Zuckerberg’s goal—to oversee a global platform that connects everyone, everywhere—is directly at odds with both Facebook’s ability to maintain a safe community for its users, and its profit model

    ...Five years later, Facebook’s content-moderation operations have increased a hundred-fold—its human moderators review more than 10 million posts a week, in more than a hundred languages. But as the company has grown—it now has more than 2 billion users worldwide, a far cry from the dorm-room origins Mark Zuckerberg is so fond of repeating—the logistics of policing its users has become less and less tenable, due in part to its formidable scale.

    ...The challenge, Hagner said, is a lack of evidence for how digital campaigns move undecided voters toward a candidate. What will ultimately help Democrats figure this out, he said, is not the tactics or digital tools, but finding more dynamic and inspiring candidates.

    The Republicans are beating Democrats on Facebook, but by how much?

    When Donald Trump won a surprise victory in 2016, the storyline emerged that his technology team had created a modern-day Manhattan project for targeting voters on Facebook. Is that really true?

    Mark Zuckerberg blames all of Facebook’s problem on all those pesky human users

    Mark Zuckerberg sums up a lot of the challenges Facebook has been confronted with this year in a new post he published today to his Facebook page that, after you read it, can almost make you feel like a lot of what the company has been dealing...
    finance.yahoo.com

    ...Facebook, according to its billionaire founder, is having to build systems and tools to fight misinformation that you’re not smart enough to avoid or see through yourself. The company is also having to significantly ramp up its investment on everything from content moderation to security because there’s, well, lots of bad people who keep trying to use Facebook to wreck Facebook.

    ...If you log into Facebook from a smartphone app or Web browser and have to re-enter your login information, you may have been affected by the breach—but maybe not. Facebook said 50 million users’ accounts had “tokens” grabbed that would allow attackers to gain access to an account without a username and password.
