Facebook Data Mining: Truth in Association?

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#Facebook#web Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts dana oshirocenter_img A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit With a product as ubiquitous as Facebook, the public has raised a number of privacy-related concerns including optional settings, privacy policies and data mining. In the past, ReadWriteWeb covered Facebook’s plans to sell user data for market research purposes. However, today’s article in the Boston Globe suggests that user information can be mined for more than just advertising purposes. An MIT experiment dubbed, “Gaydar” by creators Carter Jernigan and Behram Mistree has employed computational analysis to identify user traits based on information listed by their Facebook friends. Through friend profiles, the program predicts the likelihood of your religious affiliations, political leanings and even your sexual orientation. Essentially the idea is that friends are likely to share traits. So if you’re in the closet, but you’ve got loads of vocal friends, a program of this nature could potentially out you. Said Hal Abelson, a professor who co-taught the course, “[It] pulls the rug out from a whole policy and technology perspective that the point is to give you control over your information – because you don’t have control over your information.” With the service being used to catch tax evaders, in addition to a conspiracy theory citing CIA ties, it’ll be interesting to see how the public reacts to this latest show of Facebook data mining capabilities. While it’s unlikely that terrorist suspects are friending each other on Facebook, there are a number of associations that need not be publicized to corporate partners or governments.

Modi government is anti-farmer, says Lalu

first_imgRashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad on Thursday accused the BJP-led Narendra Modi government at the Centre of being “anti-farmer.” “What’s happening in Madhya Pradesh? The Narendra Modi government is anti-farmer. Prime Minister Modi is deaf to their demands. The Opposition parties are uniting against the BJP and their anti-farmer policies”, said Mr. Lalu Prasad, before leaving for Ranchi to appear in a special CBI court on Friday in connection with a multi-crore fodder scam case. Rahul’s detentionIn a veiled reference to the detention of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on his way to Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh to meet the bereaved families of farmers killed in the police firing, the RJD chief said that “even the Opposition leaders are being arrested and not being allowed to visit the spot.”“But, his [PM Modi] Agriculture Minister is doing yoga in Motihari [Bihar] when farmers are being killed in Madhya Pradesh. This BJP-led NDA government owes answers,” Mr. Prasad said. In his home town, Motihari, Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh is attending a three-day yoga camp organised by Baba Ramdev. “The BJP government has betrayed the farmers of the country,” Mr. Prasad said.last_img read more

10 months agoEverton chief Moshiri adamant new stadium will be built

first_imgEverton chief Moshiri adamant new stadium will be builtby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveEverton chief Farhad Moshiri is determined for their new stadium to be built.Planning permission is set to be submitted in the second half of this year, with the first ‘spade in the ground’ anticipated in early 2020.After a number of false dawns over previous projects Moshiri is adamant the stadium will be built.”It has nothing to do with my vision, it is a necessity. That must be understood – we don’t have a choice, we don’t have a Plan B or a Plan C,” he said at their AGM.”Very much like Arsenal and Tottenham that had to build a stadium – they were not given stadiums like West Ham or Manchester City.”We have a lot of experience so I think we will complete this stadium, be sure that will happen. And I will throw as much money as needed.”Private markets will provide £350m, naming rights will give us some more and we maybe have an equity gap of £100m.”I think this club, under the management of Marcel and leadership of Denise (Barrett-Baxendale, the club’s chief executive) is sufficiently robust to see the project through. It is no luxury, we have to get it done.”If we want to have a big club we need a modern stadium and we will get it.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

It had been reported that Smith was involved in a road-rage incident that led to him getting shot multiple times. A man has been arrested for the killing. The video shows a Mercedes SUV bumping the rear end of a Hummer near the intersection of Magazine Street and St. Andrew Street, a location about two blocks from where Cardell Hayes allegedly killed Smith. Smith was driving a Mercedes G63 SUV on Saturday night, while Hayes was driving a Hummer H2.Here’s the video. Hayes’ attorney said his client was involved in a hit-and-run. “Someone hit him,” John Fuller said. “The person failed to pull over. My client trailed behind this person in an effort to get their license plate number. My client also called 911.”Hayes was arrested on Sunday on a second-degree murder charge.last_img read more
