Facebook Applies For Patent On Technology That Identifies Households For Targeted Ads

In Facebook’s patent application, titled “Predicting Household Demographics Based on Image Data,” the company makes very clear the purpose of its new technology. If the patent is granted, and officials at Facebook choose to move forward with the new technology, it would likely be part of a major family-targeting program—one aimed at providing retailers with the data they need to target products that whole families might want to purchase, such as a vacation or a phone package plan.

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics’ Real-Life Superhero, Dies at 95 (Plus His Top 10 Greatest Comics)

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics’ Real-Life Superhero, Dies at 95 (Plus His Top 10 Greatest Comics)

Lee’s fame and influence as the face and figurehead of Marvel, even in his nonagenarian years, remained considerable. Beginning in the 1960s, the irrepressible and feisty Lee punched up his Marvel superheroes with personality, not just power. Until then, comic book headliners like those of DC Comics were square and well-adjusted, but his heroes had human foibles and hang-ups; Peter Parker/Spider-Man, for example, fretted about his dandruff and was confused about dating. The evildoers were a mess of psychological complexity.

They Want To Kill FREE SPEECH [But We Won’t Let Them]

Facebook is targeting what they deem “fake news” with third party verification, while in the EU the fascist oligarchy in the European Parliament has passed the Copyright Directive with Articles 11 and 13 which are targeted directly at free speech, which fortunately is protected in the United States by the Constitution, and on line by the Fair Use clause. But it’s clear that the NWO would like to kill the internet and cleanse it of free speech because they are losing badly in the public square of ideas. Bill Ottman the CEO of Minds.com joins the SGTReport to discuss.

Facebook Condemned for Empowering Right-Wing Magazine to “Drive Liberal News Outlets Into the Ground”

When Facebook selected the right-wing, Iraq War-boosting magazine “The Weekly Standard” as an official fact-checking partner last year as part of its effort to combat “misinformation,” progressives warned that the conservative publication would use its power to suppress accurate articles published by center-left and left-wing outlets. That’s precisely what happened.

That Facebook Will Turn to Censoring the Left Isn’t a Worry—It’s a Reality

That Facebook Will Turn to Censoring the Left Isn’t a Worry—It’s a Reality

Facebook recently announced it had partnered with the Atlantic Council in an effort to combat “fake news” on its platform. An offshoot of NATO, the Council’s board of directors is a who’s who of neo-conservative hawks, including Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, Henry Kissinger and James Baker; CIA directors like Robert Gates, Leon Panetta and Michael Hayden; retired generals like Wesley Clark and David Petraeus; as well as senior tech executives. Forty-five percent of Americans get their news from Facebook. When an organization like the Atlantic Council decides what news we see and do not see, that is tantamount to state censorship.
