Facebook to Implement a Stalking Diversion Policy
If we go back a couple decades, I am sure many of us associated bullying to children’s school behaviour, as they tried to find their place in the world, but with the changing social landscape, and with social media, it has enabled grownups to join in. Stalking was normally associated to problematic personal relationships, need not have any pre-existing relationships for stalking to occur these days. I am a great believer in things happen for a reason. An insignificant but noticeable Facebook occurrence arose, and I thought, ok, it’s time to share my thoughts on the bullying and stalking epidemic in greater light. Perhaps it will nip some issues in the bud for others. I recently closed my personal Facebook account and opened a new one with zero friends for the sole purpose to manage my business pages. I didn't look at anyone's profile, or search for anyone. The basis of my decision was, I would rather speak and communicate with people I know, opposed to looking at a profile to see how they are travelling. That's just me. We all have people in our past that we had to interact with. Most of the time they are pleasant and sometimes not. Someone (well, a group) from my past bullied me in the workplace, I won’t go into detail. The head bully choose to be one, for reasons only that person knows within. I understand everyone has their issues, and I am very tolerant of that. I am super patient. Some people want to evolve and discover their purpose in life, and some don't. Their choice and I accept it. The experience gave me an understanding of the world of a bully and more importantly, how I can help others that are being bullied. So, I see it as a positive experience for me, as what better way to teach than via direct experience, and about how I regained my strength 1000 fold. We are not given anything we cannot overcome and learn from. The bully(s) was my teacher. So back to Facebook... new account, no search history. So no suggested friends from my perspective, right? The only explanation I can conclude, is that Facebook algorithms came into play, based on who is visiting my new profile and my pages, remember I have no Facebook friends so no leverage on who I might know. So guess who is the number one person, almost every day on my suggested friend list? The head bully from my past. I have not thought about this person in a long time, nor interacted with them for the same period of time. But here they are for the past week or two, on my computer screen as a suggested friend. There would have had to be a great deal of profile and page views to garner this response to the algorithms. We had very little if not zero things in common, and all I have to say about them is, may God bless them and maybe it is time for them to move on. Actually, it is overdue. The other thing it has highlighted to me that bullying will nine times out of ten, be supplemented by some form of stalking behaviour, especially on social media. That is what I would like to address. What can we do? Bullying can often progress to stalking when you have left that environment. I would love to see Facebook implement a Stalking Diversion Policy that goes along the lines of if someone who is not a Facebook friend or doesn’t like/follow your page(s), (especially for people who publicly share their work), who views your profile or page: -five times in a 24 hour period, that a notification is sent to the profile/page owner, -five times in a week, that a notification is sent to the profile/page owner, -five times in a month, that a notification is sent to the profile/page owner. Then you can decide to send a message, a friend request or block them. LinkedIn has a similar feature to see who is viewing your profile. I see stalking as repetitive peeks into your home or place of business through a window (your profile or page), in hope that they can see what is happening inside, and in hope that no-one will see them. Implementing a Stalking Diversion Policy on Facebook would make all users accountable and responsible for their actions by introducing transparency, for repeat actions, on the premise there should be nothing to hide if they are not stalking. It also poses the question as to why would they not friend request you or why are they not liking/following your page? If a viewer does not want to be seen, you really have to ask what the motivation is. I believe this would be a great tool for parents as well. Any parent and their children, would want to make sure they have the ability to identify who is repeatedly looking into their child’s window (profile). In addition, Pages don't allow you to block any user, nor does it show all shares of your page and posts. So I would like to see Facebook introduce these functions to Pages. Some cyber stalkers don’t think they are stalking because if it is accessible, then they believe they have a right. And, yes a Stalking Diversion Policy will implicate those who look at other people’s profiles often, without a pre-established connection. It is in hope that it will divert stalking behaviours that are prevalent on Facebook, and place accountability on the users for their actions. Facebook is the most popular social networking site in the world with 2 billion active monthly users. I do not know what the appetite for it is, so I have created a change petition to gauge it, so please sign it if you agree. Thanks
Facebook Must Inform Users How They Were Exposed to Russian Propaganda
Facebook enabled Russian interference in the United States election in 2016, but refuses to provide a full account to the public. In fact, it has recently removed data that allowed independent researchers to understand the nature and scale of the problem. American citizens that use Facebook deserve to know how they were exposed to Russian disinformation and propaganda. Facebook should provide this data to users in an application that makes it easy to understand. Users should be able to see how content and advertising messages from identified Russian sources appeared in their timeline, whether they interacted with such media, and basic metrics that quantify their exposure.
Fixing Facebook's Spam, Stolen Content and Privacy Concerns
Facebook is one of the biggest online companies today and they are not trying hard enough to make their online company safe and enjoyable for its users. Some of the biggest and most easily fixed problems on Facebook are frequent spam, stolen content and privacy concerns. Facebook and the offenders using it keep getting get away with these things all because it makes them more money due to ad revenue. Spam, something Facebook is full of is seen everywhere on people’s feeds you will see posts like “Like and Share = 1 prayer for this poor child”, things like this are just trying to trick users into giving it free promotion. Things like this should be filtered out, removed and have penalty’s to stop culprits from doing it again. Stolen content. Some of the top pages on Facebook steal videos and content from other websites like YouTube. Videos uploaded on YouTube go through a Content ID Check, this is where the video is automatically searched for any copyright content. On Facebook, this isn't the same, videos are uploaded and go through no check. If the user puts ads on the video both the user and Facebook make money. Facebook rarely takes down stolen content and even when they do, the user keeps the ad revenue and so does Facebook. The user is also let off lightly and most likely just does it again. But there is a more serious concern that Facebook needs to attend to. Privacy, something we all want to have. Facebook is watching you, and what you do, they watch your searches, use your personal information and some people have had suspicions about their microphone audio being recorded without permission. These are all things that benefit Facebook by helping them serve different ads based on what you talk about and look at, all this information is saved by Facebook. I think that Facebook forgets that we are people and not just money making machines, we need to know what data is being stored about us and we need the option to stop it being recorded as well as knowing what our data is used for. You can have a look at original content creators below for more information: How Facebook is Stealing Billions of Views (Video) Why Facebook is garbage (Video) Facebook/Insta apps are listening to my conversations (Text) Your Phone Is Listening—Literally Listening—to Your TV (Text) Facebook in general needs to listen to its users more, but there are some big changes that need to happen first, mainly the security and copyright concerns.

Return "It's okay to be a Introvert" Facebook page to it's rightful owner!
On Tuesday the owner (Shireen Boone) of Its okay to be an Introvert had her account hacked and had her public page stolen by one Derek D Adam. This page has been a four year labour of love, with no money made by admins. It had over 1/2 million followers. It was a safe space, an introvert haven for many. It was exactly what Mark Zuckerberg wanted from Facebook. A place where people could support and connect. It was ripped from her, dismantled, and changed into a hell of clickbait rubbish. This man even knew she has disabled children-pretended sympathy-and still ripped it from her. This is not just a page. It is a TRUE community of love and acceptance, where kindness and care reigned and hatred and trolling outlawed. Please help us get back this wonderful community! Introverts Unite!
Free Ahed Tamimi
My name is Nasri Akil from Toronto, Canada. I started this campaign to support" Ahed Tamimi", her mother "Mariam", her cousin "Nur" and the other kids detained by the evil hands of the Zionists of the fake state of Israel. In a desperate hope to get enough signature to put pressure on decision makers to do something about the constant twisted detention of Palestinian kids. In turn this will expose the evil of the zionists and pressure the international community. I would like to mention here that this petition has nothing to do with race or religion or ethnicity. It's pure right against wrong. Zionism is not Judaism. Judaism is a religion not a race. Many Jews are not Zionists. Most Zionists are not Jews. Many Zionists hate Jews. Opposition to Israel is NOT anti-Semitism. Ahed Tamimi, 16, was arrested ( kidnapped actually ) by Israeli forces in the middle of the night. Since she was a young child, she has been active in weekly demonstrations against Israel’s theft of her family’s land in occupied Nabi Saleh. But as Tamimi stands against Israeli occupation, she underscores: whenever a people face oppression, we must show solidarity. Israeli soldiers shot Ahed Tamimi's relative in the head, leaving the teenage boy in a coma, and then invaded her family home. She demanded that the occupying Israeli soldiers leave her property immediately, shouting "don't touch me" and "leave!" Now she's in Israeli military detention, where 75% of Palestinian children report assault. Ahed is a child, and like thousands of Palestinian children she could be humiliated and abused if we don't get her out fast. She has become another child statistic of the countless other children detained illegally in Israel. Her court date is December 25th, 2017. She was taken into question at the Moscobiyeh prison, notorious for it's dungeon cell, torture tactics fully utilized on children, and extensive harassment. She was put in isolation, left in an icy cell, without proper food. In fives days she was moved three times. Why? To exhaust and break her. When her mother arrived to be there with her, she too was arrested. We demand that Ahed and all Palestinian children are released from Israeli prisons now. The international community must put an end to the ill-treatment and detention of Palestinian children. Enough is enough. Ahed Tamimi represent all the innocent kids in the Isareli detention and represent the Palestinians struggle against the illegal occupation of Palestine. Since 1967, Palestinian children in the Occupied Palestinian Territory have been living under Israeli military law and prosecuted in military courts. Israeli military law, which fails to ensure and denies basic and fundamental rights, is applied to the whole Palestinian population. Israel is the only country in the world that automatically prosecutes children in military courts that lack basic and fundamental fair trial guarantees. Since 2000, at least 8,000 Palestinian children have been arrested and prosecuted in an Israeli military detention system notorious for the systematic ill-treatment and torture of Palestinian children. Around 500-700 Palestinian children are arrested, detained and prosecuted in the Israeli military court system each year. The majority of Palestinian child detainees are charged with throwing stones, and three out of four experience physical violence during arrest, transfer or interrogation. Unlike Israeli children living in illegal settlements in the West Bank, Palestinian children are not accompanied by a parent and are generally interrogated without the benefit of legal advice, or being informed of their right. They are overwhelmingly accused of throwing stones, an offense that can lead to a potential maximum sentence of 10 to 20 years depending on a child’s age. AHED TAMIMI will go to trial on Christmas Day for slapping an Israeli soldier, illegally trespassing on her property, the day after her 15-year-old cousin was shot in the face. In December 2011, Mustafa Tamimi was killed during a protest in the village when an Israeli soldier shot him in the face with a tear gas canister. One year later, Israeli soldiers shot and killed Rashadi Tamimi in the village. One wonders why the "slap" is the Crime? I decided to do something about it and start with what I can. So that's why I am here asking you to help me help Ahed, her family and all the other kids. I also started a fund raising campaign on "GoFundMe" hoping to raise enough money to hire as many legal advisors to support Ahed and the others legaly in the court and get some justice. I mean enough is enough...I can't sleep I can't eat and these kids are experiencing all of that twist. Someone must do something. This is not right. This is not humanity. We cannot make this acceptable by doing nothing. I earnestly ask that at the very least, we make some noise in support of Ahed Tamimi and the other children that are held prisoners with no charge, no defense, all in violation of international laws. She is one, but we are many. It takes a united front to add pressure, to induce accountability and hopefully give freedom to the oppressed, weak and innocent. To Ahed and all the children in Israeli jails: We stand by your side, and are holding you in our hearts. We will not give up until you are free. You are not alone. As a wise man ounce said: "Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible" Sign. Support. Make Noise. Add Pressure. Be Human. what if Ahed was your daughter, sister or just a friend? What would you do?
Stop Amir Hossein Maghsoodloo (AKA Amir Tataloo)
The truth is that in todays life, the virtual world is one of the most powerful instruments for informing people about society, politics, cultures, etc… Instagram is one of these powerful tools but unfortunately we have been seeing it being misused by some pretentious, superficial and delusional people whose only goal has been to brainwash the adolescents who are our next generations; brainwashing being distancing our kids from learning the norms of the society, common sense and choosing the appropriate role models. We are referring to Mr. Amir Hossein Maghsoodloo (AKA Amir Tataloo) who has been cursing, defaming and bad-mouthing prominent scientists, politicians, sociologists and other religions while trying to persuade and lead people towards extreme religious beliefs and pro-ISIS ideologies through his Instagram account. He has been backing dictators like Gaddafi who bring about violence in young audiences and creating irrational bigoted adolescents who follow in his footsteps just because they respect him as a singer. The most dangerous of all is that he has been advertising false hope, fake medical advice and cure for cancer to children! Fraudulent information made by his own sick mind and not having any concrete evidence whatsoever; for example, on medical advice, he has been advising against the intake of milk, meat, toothpaste and even medicine for children. For this reason, we have decided to create this petition to stop him and block down his Instagram accounts through its authorities. Please help us gather enough signatures to put an end to this. We ask Instagram to block his account and stop him from further brainwashing our children and to not let him have any more activity on Instagram. Please find his Instagram account in bellow: @amirtatalooi Link address: https://www.instagram.com/amirtatalooi/?hl=en Persian translation ترجمه فارسی واقعیت این است که امروزه فضای مجازی از جمله قدرتمندترین ابزار در جهت آگاهی بخشی به عموم مردم است، آگاهی اجتماعی، سیاسی، فرهنگی و ... نمونه هایی ازاین دست هستند، در این میان فضای مجازی اینستاگرام با کاربران میلیونی خود از مصادیق موثر و پرقدرت فضای مجازیست.متاسفانه این روزها شاهد سوء استفاده برخی افراد متوهم، خودبزرگ بین و سطحی نگر ازین فضای مجازی هستیم که تنها تبعات آن انحراف ذهنی جمع کثیر کم سن و سالیست که نسل آینده ساز این کشورند، انحراف به معنای دور شدن از دریافت درک و بینش صحیح در یادگیری هنجارهای اجتماعی، تفکر اصولی و منطقی و الگو برداری مناسب در جهت بلوغ فکری و اجتماعی است. روی سخن ما مستقیما آقای امیرحسین مقصودلو (امیرتتلو) ست، که این روزها حرفها تفکرات و گاه نظریات علمی فلسفی اجتماعی سخیفش مبین حرفهای ماست،که میتوان با مراجعه به صفحه ی ایشان در اینستاگرام شاهد فحاشی به بزرگان فوتبال علم ادب سیاست ترویج باورهای دینی_مذهبی افراطی با گرایشاتی داعشی وار و تند رو،فحاشی به احاد مختلف جامعه،فحاشی به مخالفان و منتقدین خود،توهین به ادیان آسمانی دیگر،اشاعه غلط برخی از باورهای مذهبی با گرایشات افزاطی و داعشی وار و حمایت مستقیم از دیکتاتورهایی همچون قذافی که باعث تحریک هیجانات این دسته از مخاطبین کم سن و به وجود آوردن تعداد زیادی نوجوان متعصب و در عین حال خطرناک به دلیل ناآگاهی و علایق شخصی به خود ایشان میشود،ایجاد توهم و دشمنی با مردمان دیگر کشورها و غرب ستیزی،و از همه خطرناک تر با توجه به مخاطبین کم سن و نااگاه ایشان ترویج و پافشاری بر انتشار اطلاعات بسیار غلط پزشکی و ادعای شفا و درمان سرطان و بیماری های صعب العلاج،ذکر هجم بسیار زیاد اطلاعاتی که تنها و تنها زاده ی ذهن بیمار ایشان است و دارای هیچ گونه منبع یا رفرنس مشخصی نیست به عنوان مثال در حیطه سلامت میتوان به توصیه های اکید و مستقیم ایشان به عدم مصرف شیر،گوشت،خمیردندان و اشاره به عدم مصرف دارو در هنگام بیماری به نوجوانان دارد. ازین رو برآن شدیم تا بوسیله طوماری از امضا موافقین مسدود شدن حساب کاربری این فرد، و ارائه آن به بخش نظارتی اینستاگرام، خواستار بسته شدن صفحه اش شویم. با امضا این تقاضانامه ما را یاری دهید. از اینستاگرام خواهشمندیم با مسدود کردن حسابه کاربری این فرد مانع از ترویج افکار مخرب و شستشوی مغزی نسل جوان و آینده ساز جامعه ایران شود حساب کاربری ایشان در اینستاگرام : @amirtatalooi لینک آدرس : https://www.instagram.com/amirtatalooi/?hl=en پیشاپیش از شما سپاسگذاریم
Get Facebook to rescind the ban on animal sale posts
Facebook has banned animal for sale ads, it will cause more horses being slaughtered, dogs and cats being dumped. This change is bad for both pets and livestock. The opportunity to screen homes and get to know buyers and sellers will be gone . Small, reputable breeders and farmers will lose their primary place to market their animals to good homes, forcing them to turn to high risk alternatives like auctions. But the puppy mills and the irresponsible breeders will continue as they always have, making money off the uninformed. This change hurts everyone - pets, sellers, and buyers alike.

Get Emily LeRae Smith The Help She Needs
This is a mentally deranged girl who gets satisfaction out of posting her self-harm on social networking websites and has managed to get away with it with little to no trouble. She posts very constroversal photos that make thousands uncomforable and that are not allowed to hide them from their News Feed. She has built up almost about 200,000 followers over her years of activity online and her profile has gotten verified so it cannot be blocked by the public. Forcing them to see the open wounds and healing scars that she has. If you confront the woman and ask politely about being blocked, she will make sure to leave her word in and make sure her followers are aware and will go after you as well. Her photos trigger people with depression and other kinds of issues and she has no problem with it as she claims she does not force the ill person to hurt themself and will not take into consideration of her being a contributing factor. She exposes herself and takes advantage of her followers and receives money from her followers and puts on a persona that she's a sweet and caring person when in reality she's infact otherwise and has been said by tons of people who have met with her in person with clear evidence. She has turned self-harm into a fashion statement and has banked her illnesses due to the extreme popularity she has received. Gaining the sympathy of other girls and boys who look up to her and support and worship her and turning it into large profit as she has opened up her own P.O. box and allowed others to sent her gifts and cash for exchange of mailing them back or messaging them over Facebook. ( She will drop hints about the items that she likes or dislikes and leave small comments if people were to gift her things, there were certain things she's wanting. ) Her Mother is a nurse and makes sure to patch up her daughters self-harm injuries to insure that she will not head into a hospital and get the proper help that she needs and has been involved with her Daughter's Facebook business for who knows. It was speculated that Emily LeRae was posing as her Mother on her profile as how a typical Mother would not alarm 200k of every injury that happened to her Daughter. But people were wrong, it was in fact the Mother who does share account information with her. There are worse situations out there and this girl will not get the help that she needs, being caught in a lie that she was telling the world she was getting help but finding out she was skipping out on treatment purposely and then not receiving treatment at all. This woman doesn't need to be on Facebook to brag about her mental illness and claim she is trying to become a advocate to "help others" when in fact, it's the complete opposite. Hardly anyone will stand up to her due to how vile her followers are and if you say one wrong word about her, your profile will be under attack and you will be targeted by the majority of her base and which causes people to feel afraid of her. There are tons of impressionable children out there who are on the Internet whether we like it or not, who may come across her posts and if seeing them, may think that cutting is the best way to receive attention and be loved. " Look at all of the love she receives, if I do it.. I may get love and attention too! " AS OF APRIL 11th: EMILY LERAE SMITH HAS BEEN ONTO DR.PHIL AND WAS TO BE RECEIVING EXTREME MEDICAL CARE THAT WAS PAID BY THE SHOW ITSELF, BUT SHE ADMITS IN A VIDEO SHE ' ATTEMPTED ' SUICIDE 3 WEEKS LATER AFTER THE SHOW BUT WAS PERFECTLY OKAY AND RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL WITH NO ISSUES. If you feel this as strong as me, please sign the petition. I will not give up. No matter how much attack is sent towards me. We want to be able to freely block her and we want her photos to at least have a warning on them so we do not accidentally come across them. We do not think that she should be Facebook verified and that her very personal isseus should be shared between family and close-friends as well. Follow Me On Facebook For More Updates On The Petition and Emily.
Que Facebook cierre los grupos sobre Zoofilia
Ayer se través de una página de Facebook me enteré que había grupos en esta red social para gente que le gusta y practica la zoofilia, donde crean grupos de WhatsApp, comparten fotos y vídeos y comentan incluso como han metido a la mujer o a la sobrina de 13 años en el mundo degenerado de la zoofilia. Se pedía que se denunciara el grupo a Facebook para que lo cerrarán, pero según han contestado, no infringe ninguna norma comunitaria... Es vergonzoso... Violar a seres inocentes, está al nivel de la pedofilia, y está red social lo permite y le parece normal. De hecho, eliminó la publicación que pedía denunciar este grupo. Por favor, que se cierren estos grupos llamados "Zoofilia Santander / Brasil (Grupo Reserva)" y todos los grupos relacionados con esta horrenda parafilia...
