“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

Parler could soon be a thing of the past — but thanks to quick work by internet researchers, public posts by every user on the moderation-free app could be preserved permanently. In the hours before Parler was taken offline, internet researchers began racing to create an archive of all previous public posts on the app. By Sunday, researchers successfully scraped thousands of photos, videos, and text posts accounting for 99.9% of the public posts made on Parler. The Parler archive could be of interest to law enforcement investigating the Capitol siege. The Parler archive only includes public posts and not any private data, @donk_enby told Insider.

In Pulling Trump’s Megaphone, Twitter Shows Where Power Now Lies

In the end, two billionaires from California did what legions of politicians, prosecutors and power brokers had tried and failed to do for years:They pulled the plug on President Trump. Both companies had spent years defending Mr. Trump’s continued presence on their platforms, only to change course days before the end of his presidency. Why these companies’ chief executives — Jack Dorsey of Twitter and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook — decided to act now is no mystery. But high-stakes calls like these typically come down to gut decisions made under extreme duress. In this case, Mr. Dorsey and Mr. Zuckerberg considered the evidence, consulted their teams, weighed the trade-offs and risks of inaction — including the threat of a worker revolt that could damage their ability to attract top talent — and decided that they’d seen enough.

Chamath Palihapitiya speaking at the 23rd Annual Sohn Investment Conference in New York City on April 23, 2018. Online finance start-up SoFi is set to go public by merging with a blank-check company run by venture capital investor Chamath Palihapitiya, the companies announced Thursday. The merger with Palihapitiya's SPAC, Social Capital Hedosophia Corp V, will value SoFi at $8.65 billion. Palihapitiya — an early executive at Facebook — has taken multiple companies public through SPACs including Virgin Galactic Holdings in late 2019. SoFi was an attractive bet based on its ability to meet the needs of modern, mobile-first consumers, according to Palihapitiya.

Goldman's 'Rule of 10' growth stocks could be the next market leaders
  + stars: | 2020-09-17 | by ( Yun Li | ) www.cnbc.com + 1.00   time to read: 1 min
The five biggest stocks — Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Alphabet, and Facebook — currently account for 23% of the S&P 500, marking the highest concentration in 40 years. But Goldman Sachs said their leadership won't last forever and other high-growth stocks have the potential to one day take some of those top spots. Goldman used the so-called "Rule of 10" criteria to identify stocks with strong secular growth prospects that could drive share price outperformance. These stocks, according to the firm's investing rule, have a track record of at least 10% sales growth during each of the past two years and they are expected to grow revenue at the same pace for each of the next two years. Stocks meeting these criteria have a strong track record of beating the market, the bank said.

But Systrom, who with Krieger left Facebook in September, says the experience was eye-opening in ways one might not expect. "I think the biggest lesson ... coming into a fair amount of money pretty quickly, was that money itself is no end. The first thing Krieger did after making the deal with Facebook — was to get a burger. A mentor of Systrom's had warned him that money doesn't solve many of the hardships that come from being human. And that's honestly the thing that got us up every morning, working hard at Instagram.
