Viet Nam NewsWASHINGTON — Facebook launched an offensive on Thursday to suppress the spread of misinformation about vaccines on the 2.3-billion-member social network.

The company has faced pressure in recent weeks to tackle the problem, amid outbreaks of measles around the United States attributed to growing numbers of parents who refuse to vaccinate their children.

US lawmakers have decried the higher incidences of preventable diseases in the wake of a movement against child vaccination, in large part due to rumours they can cause health or developmental issues. Continue reading “Facebook launches offensive to combat misinformation on vaccines”

Vietnam Communist Party Expels Academic Over Facebook Posts

HANOI (REUTERS) – A Vietnamese academic has been expelled from the ruling Communist Party for posting comments on Facebook deemed to be critical of the party, the government said on Friday.

Tran Duc Anh Son, deputy head of the Danang Institute for Socio-Economic Development, was accused of “writing Facebook posts that were untrue and went against the party’s views and state policies and laws,” the government said in a statement.

Son had been critical at what he perceived as a soft approach by Vietnam on the South China Sea issue with China. Vietnam and China have long been embroiled in maritime disputes in the potentially energy-rich maritime territory.

GENEVA (Reuters) – Myanmar’s military carried out mass killings and gang rapes of Muslim Rohingya with “genocidal intent”, and the commander-in-chief and five generals should be prosecuted for the gravest crimes under international law, United Nations investigators said.

A report by investigators was the first time the United Nations has explicitly called for Myanmar officials to face genocide charges over their campaign against the Rohingya, and is likely to deepen the country’s isolation.

Facebook says it just found 652 fake accounts out of Russia — and Iran

Twitter found and suspended Iran-linked accounts as well.

Facebook revealed on Tuesday that it has removed about 650 pages, groups, and accounts it determined are part of a coordinated disinformation campaign out of Russia — and Iran. Also on Tuesday, Twitter said it had suspended 284 Iran-linked accounts.

Menlo Park, California-based Facebook said that it has scrapped 652 fake accounts and pages that targeted Facebook users in the United States, United Kingdom, Latin America, and the Middle East. Facebook said that it undertook four separate investigations into aspects of the suspicious activity, three of which were related to Iran, and the fourth to Russian military intelligence services. The Iranian and Russian campaigns were unrelated, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a call with reporters on Tuesday evening.

Zuckerberg said Facebook banned the fake accounts and announced the decision was “because authenticity matters, and people need to be able to trust the connections that they make on Facebook.”

This is the second time in less than a month that Facebook has identified and removed suspicious activity on its platform, and it comes amid concern that Russia and others are trying to disrupt the 2018 midterm elections. Facebook has stepped up enforcement as a result of those concerns, but it’s not clear whether any of the activity Facebook revealed Tuesday was specifically targeted at swaying the November contest in the US.

A War of Words Puts Facebook at the Center of Myanmar’s Rohingya Crisis

Myanmar’s government has barred Ashin Wirathu, an ultranationalist Buddhist monk, from public preaching for the past year, saying his speeches helped fuel the violence against the country’s Rohingya ethnic group that the United Nations calls ethnic cleansing.

So he has turned to an even more powerful and ubiquitous platform to get his message out — Facebook.

Facebook blocks ads from fake news pages

thehill_Facebook is blocking pages that post fake news stories from buying ads as part of its efforts to curb hoax articles on its platform.

The company announced on Monday that it would prevent Facebook pages — public profiles for brands, celebrities, groups, businesses and other institutions — that repeatedly share news marked as “false” by third-party fact-checkers from advertising on its platform.

“This update will help to reduce the distribution of false news which will keep Pages that spread false news from making money,” wrote Facebook product managers Satwik Shukla and Tessa Lyons. “We’ve found instances of Pages using Facebook ads to build their audiences in order to distribute false news more broadly.”

The company noted that pages that stop posting fake news would be eligible to buy ads on Facebook again.In the post, the two managers reiterated Facebook’s stance that false information on the platform is “harmful” and “erodes trust.”

In December, the company announced that it would begin taking steps to curb fake stories from spreading across its platform. The move came after CEO Mark Zuckerberg initially downplayed the impact of false stories on Facebook.

“More than 99% of what people see is authentic,” Zuckerberg wrote just after the presidential election. “Only a very small amount is fake news and hoaxes.”

Facebook has since released features and tweaked its platform in a variety of ways to stop fake news from being shared on its website.

Most notably, the company introduced an option that allows users to report potentially fake stories as “false.” Third-party groups assess flagged stories to determine if they are fake. They also use algorithms to find false news stories.
