McAfee® Social Protection safeguards your Facebook photos by letting you control exactly who can view them. When you upload your photos using the app, your photos will appear blurry and indistinguishable to people you don't know. What's more, no one—not even your friends and family who you've granted access to your photos—can save, print, download, or screen capture them. In short, your photos stay your photos.

India prohibits hate speech by several sections of the Indian Penal Code, the Code of Criminal Procedure, and by other laws which put limitations on the freedom of expression. Section 95 of the Code of Criminal Procedure gives the government the right to declare certain publications “forfeited” if the “publication ... appears to the State Government to contain any matter the publication of which is punishable under Section 124A or Section 153A or Section 153B or Section 292 or Section 293 or Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code”.[2]
Section 153A of the penal code says, inter alia:
Whoever (a) by words, either spoken or written, or by signs or by visible representations or otherwise, promotes or attempts to promote, on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, caste or community or any other ground whatsoever, disharmony or feelings of enmity, hatred or ill-will between different religious, racial, language or regional groups or castes or communities, or (b) commits any act which is prejudicial to the maintenance of harmony between different religious, racial, language or regional groups or castes or communities, and which disturbs or is likely to disturb the public tranquility, . . . shall be punished with imprisonment which may extend to three years, or with fine, or with both.[3]

 who have been more open and forthright in presenting themselves as the party of owners and managers, have sought to create a popular base through appeal to jingoism, fear, religious fanaticism, and the like. That provides substantial outreach. 

Religious fundamentalists alone are a huge popular grouping, which resembles pre-industrial societies in that regard. This is a culture in which three-fourths of the population believe in religious miracles,


neither political faction offers its popular constituency any real influence over matters of importance to "the country,"

Ad Planner Changes at google

Dear Publisher,
We’re constantly evaluating our products to make sure we’re focusing our efforts on tools that create the most value for our partners. As part of this, we’re soon making some changes to Ad Planner and retiring the Publisher Center.

Starting September 5th, 2012, publisher-entered data from the Publisher Center will no longer be available within Ad Planner, including publisher-entered data. The Ad Planner Help Center will be updated accordingly after this new version of Ad Planner has been launched.

If you’re using AdSense, you can continue giving advertisers insight into the available ad units on your pages by converting your custom channels into ad placements. You’ll be able to enter details about a specific group of ad units including the types of pages they appear on, the demographics of the site’s users, and the location of the ad units. This information can help attract advertisers as they look for specific pages and audiences for their placement-targeted campaigns.

Thanks for your support and understanding as we continue to focus on developing new monetization features for publishers.

Sincerely,
The Google Display Network Ad Planner Team

Facebook the new breeding Ground for Fascism

Reading the article Characteristics Of Fascism   and studying the behavior of large groups of people from certain countries. I see a rise of fascism under the guise of nationalism by these anonymous groups running facebook pages and groups. 

Image above From a facebook page 

Facebook seems unable to contain the speed at this the platform is being gamed to fame rumors, plagiarism,sexism,hate and everything else.

Why is facebook the preferred platform ?
1) Easy to build your database by adding random people to your friend list. Then saving this database
2) Creating anonymous pages where 100,000 users can be added immediatly. Pages and groups can be gamed. It is very difficult to a user added forcefully from unliking a page. The page stream only gives the user a hide option .The user has to go to the offending page and click on the arrow on the top (no help options which tell the user how to unlike the page) .
3) There could be 20 harmless posts and hidden under then the racial post which can easily be shared across pages ,across groups , across user time lines. Making it easy to spread.


There are 100's of facebook pages and groups to back up this claim 

Most of the groups were started in January
Groups seem to be working in tandem
Groups have similar photo-shopped images.

as the fascists gain young followers through facebook . Expect more offline ethnic,religious strife. Mass exodus of people of certain regions,certain religions.Expect some of these group to come to power in the next two year .
1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism






People are creating anonymous groups on countries air force, army,navy

This makes all the patriots join . This gives the fascists access to 100,000 members.They will post patriotic posts till the time is right to post the message of fear.


They will also befriend these members with fake profile and then this will given them access to the members personal emails . 

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights

Fake images and messages to increase the hate levels to such a level where the members just want to kill the enemy .

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause

Fake images
Fake videos
News articles which are misquoted or badly reported as proof.
Links to tv clipping by tv channels who capture footage without due diligence just for revenue 
fake Profiles to show the support for the cause against the scapegoats

4. Supremacy of the Military

Make groups called army fans
Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated.

Images of woman drinking
Images and comment to show woman in a bad light

7. Obsession with National Security
 Make several groups along these lines

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion.
Make many political party groups/pages where posts are a mix of religion,hate for other religions ,and patriotism

http://rense.com/general37/char.htm


"..jingoism, racism, fear, religious fundamentalism: these are the ways of appealing to people if you’re trying to organize a mass base of support for policies that are really intended to crush them."
Understanding Power - Noam Chomsk



Jingoism is extreme nationalism marked by a belligerent foreign policy. It is patriotism rallying around aggression

APP.NET CORE VALUES


https://join.app.net/
  • We are selling our product, NOT our users.

    We will never sell your personal data, content, feed, interests, clicks, or anything else to advertisers. We promise.
  • You own your content.

    App.net members will always have full control of their data. Members have the fundamental right to easily back-up, export, and delete ALL of their data, whenever they want.
  • We will align our financial incentives with members & developers.

    In this paid model, the more people that value our service highly enough to pay for it, the more money we make. Our financial incentives are entirely tied to successfully delivering a service you can depend on, not on holding our ecosystem hostage.
  • App.net employees spend 100% of their time improving our services for you, not advertisers.

    Rather than waste most of our engineering time coming up with new and exciting ways to sell your personal data to advertisers, 100% of our engineering and product team will be focused on building the most innovative and reliable service we can.
  • We will operate a sustainable, predictable business.

    App.net will always have a clear business model. We know that depending on services that could go away or desperately squeeze users for more and more money is a toxic cycle.
    We want our ecosystem to rest easy that App.net is built on a financially solid foundation.
  • We respect and value our developer community.

    We believe that developers building on our platform are increasing the value and attractiveness of our service to paying members, and thus our financial interests are fundamentally aligned. We hope developers build large, robust businesses on top of our platform. Even if it means that we will likely forgo some huge future revenue streams, we will NEVER screw developers acting in good faith.
  • Our most valuable asset is your trust.

    Many people have become so cynical about user-hostile, privacy-violating social services that they refuse to participate at all. We can understand why. Earning your trust is the most important thing we can do. It won't be easy, and we will make some mistakes, but we will do our best to be honest and transparent.
