I feel like Heebie's take is good at pointing out problems with both Facebook and the U.S. healthcare system.

Could you post a video of somebody getting their head split open to Facebook if you weren't trying to incite violence? Asking for a friend.

I bet they devote more oversight per post to the US and other countries in its league.

Maybe they're waiting to see if the Russians will pay for the propaganda.

I do wonder if Mr Ahmed could not be prosecuted under the UK laws about hate speech. It would be a popular case.

Probably, if you can get arrested over a Grenfell effigy (a furore which I missed entirely until reading Private Eye today).

Only loosely related, but the alt-right has to have figured out how to manipulate Youtube recommendations. I keep getting recommendations for "the new female Doctor on Doctor Who sucks" videos. I'm pretty sure I've never watched a Doctor Who Youtube video on this computer, and I was just searching for videos by Garfunkel and Oates (feminist comedian singer-songwriters). People claim that it's an emergent property of Youtube'a algorithm that maximizes engagement, but I don't believe this is an emergent outcome.

Maybe Simon and Hall are angry.

This is no laughing matter. Social media algorithms can destroy democracy, inspire genocide, and elect a fascist President, but when it starts interfering with my half-assed comedy viewing, it's gone too far.

Actively radicalizing people probably does goose engagement.

YouTube has a female CEO, a fact which may or may not be ironic. I can't decide.
