Facebook’s been making it up all along and we’re left holding the bag

TwitterFacebook

On Sunday afternoon we learned about Facebook’s internal content moderation rules from a massive leak by The Guardian. It confirmed what a lot of people had long suspected: Facebook is making it up as they go along and we’re the collateral damage.

The leaked moderator documents cover how to deal with depictions of things like self-harm and animal cruelty in exceedingly detailed ways. A first read through suggests that the company attempted to create a rule for every conceivable situation, and if they missed one, well they’d write that guideline when it came up. It suggests they think that this is just a question of perfecting the rules, when they’ve been off-base from the outset.

Schwarzenegger says he’ll be back for ‘Terminator’ sequel with James Cameron

TwitterFacebook

Heeeeeeeeee’s back.

Maybe.  

Arnold Schwarzenegger is expecting to return to play a role in yet another Terminator movie, according to a report coming from the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday. 

With the mixed reactions to the latest Terminator film, some wondered if the franchise might be shuttered for good. 

Alas, that all changed back in January when news dropped that Terminator 2 director James Cameron is planning to jump back into the Terminator franchise (as producer) in 2019 when he regain some rights to the franchise. Given that change in direction, it’s no surprise that Schwarzenegger revealed to Screen Daily that he recently met Cameron about being involved in an upcoming Terminator movie.  Read more…

Twitter is incorrectly guessing the gender of trans users — and they aren’t having it

TwitterFacebook

Transgender Twitter users aren’t here for the platform’s gendered assumptions. And they sure aren’t hesitating to make that known.

Here’s the deal: Twitter released a new set of tools on May 17 which allow users to see and control the data advertisers use to target ads on the social media platform. While the move was a clear effort to increase transparency and trust between users and the social media machine, the actual data Twitter has collected is giving many users pause. 

Notably, many trans and gender-nonconforming users are troubled that Twitter has been guessing the gender of users based on the gender most strongly associated with a user’s “profile and activity.”  Read more…

Apple’s lack of daycare isn’t an oversight, it’s a feature

TwitterFacebook

After WIRED offered us all a peek into Apple’s new headquarters, one notable fact emerged: there’s no daycare center. Whooooopsie. 

Except this was no mistake. It was a big fat message to anyone who might be contemplating trying to balance family life with their obsessive devotion to their job. And that message reads, in the sleekest font imaginable, “nope.”

The 150-acre campus contains a huge fitness and wellness center and every other amenity you can possibly imagine. Basically everything you’d need to live your life at work. Unless, of course, your life includes children.

Kids are many things, but mostly they are messy. That goes against Apple’s whole vision of how the world should be — and it’s a vision that most of Silicon Valley shares. I’m not talking about being physically messy, though sticky children don’t exactly coordinate with Apple’s pristine white glass aesthetic.  Read more…
