BREAKING: @CommonsCMS @DamianCollins just released previously sealed #Six4Three @Facebook documents:
1) Zuck approves shutting down platform API access for Twitter's when Vine is released #competition
Team considered access to call history considered 'high PR risk' but 'growth team will charge ahead'. @Facebook created upgrade path to access data w/o subjecting users to Android permissions dialogue.
However, docs show lead of privacy program was actively working to evade user consent https://t.co/mcXhDnSg2i
Huh, Yul Kwon (head Facebook 'privacy sherpa') was supposed to be making sure new features were privacy compliant, not making sure Android users weren't notified Facebook was getting more information off their phones https://t.co/KubqX6OMo5 https://t.co/ooEmSdwvve— Kashmir Hill (@kashhill) December 5, 2018
@Facebook statements re: Android SMS and Call Log History
1) internal discussion Feb 4 2015
2) public 'clarifying' statement Mar 25 2018
@Facebook's director of platform offered to 'unblock @Tinder's monetization possibilities' if @Tinder permitted use of 'Moments' trademark:
Q: Are there any contracts or other steps besides whitelisting to launch a feature using the APls?
A: You don't need to worry about any contracts for the api. This is a product we are testing and will be rolling out slowly.
(NEKO is an acronym used to describe mobile app-install ads)
It most clearly lays out the strategy of the company with regards to platform API and user data:
FB provides: access to platform (userdata/friends)

More from Tech
Over the last months @mmkaradeniz and I made a new version. We launched it last night:
@accountanalysis doesn't use machine learning or AI „magic“. Instead of telling users if an account is authentic or not, it helps them to evaluate the accounts themselves.
It visualizes the different features (date, time, type, app, etc.) of Tweets to make them interpretable. /1
@accountanalysis The core concept is still the same, but it looks much better and is easier to operate. Not only for the users, but us developers as well. Enabling us to continuously roll out new features in the future.
Side-by-side screenshots of the old and new version. /2
@accountanalysis Some people had questions what different charts displayed and how they could be interpreted. There are now explanations for all charts, that can be toggled on and off at any time. /3
@accountanalysis The selected/retrieved Tweet count moved to the top to make it clear that not all Tweets of an account are analyzed. 3200 is the API limit by Twitter. It's possible to get more through the Premium API, but I don't think people would pay $100+ for the analysis of one account. /4
With SIM attacks at their highest, now is a great time to take a closer look at your online security.
Removing SMS from your two-factor auth is a start, but authenticator apps have downsides too...
Just look at these headlines from recent SIM swap and port attacks.
It's all too established for attackers to find ways to socially engineer control of your phone number and start gaining control of your accounts.
I first talk about some general security tips.
Unfortunately not all websites let you remove your phone number from accounts.
You may consider migrating your phone carrier to @googlefi , which requires email account access to do anything (and can be locked down with security keys and even Advanced Protection)
Beyond SMS, I talk about issues that TOTP authenticator apps (the code generators) have as a form of two-factor auth. They're so, so much better than relying on SMS for your second factor but they still have issues like utilizing shared secrets and lacking phishing prevention.
Enter security keys!
Utilizing public key cryptography they don't have any shared secret between the client and the server. They prevent phishing by taking the website domain into account.
Even if you get tricked by a clone phishing website, your key won't.
Me : Do you map?
X : Yes
Me : Like this?
X : No. What's that?
Me : A map of a tea shop.
X : Why is that a map?
Me : Long story, all to do with how space has meaning. To keep it short, maps help people to focus on user needs, the components involved, to communicate missing components and scenario play ideas like staff becoming robots.
Me : They’re also good for measuring and managing capital flow, making investment decisions, removing bias and getting rid of duplication.
X : I don’t see how that helps with innovation?
Me : Well, innovation is a tricky word because we use it to describe many things. If you’re talking about differentiation with the adjacent unexplored then you’re experimenting in the “uncharted” space e.g. immortality with magic provided by the special custom built kettle.
X : That sounds like nonsense.
Me : A lot of what people think will be the next great innovation is nonsense. Actually, most of it is. That’s the nature of the uncharted space, it’s experimental, high risk and generally results in failure.
X : We need more reliable innovation.

In a 24 x 24 pixel artboard, use the rectangle tool (R) to draw a 18 x 10 pixel rectangle positioned horizontally centered and 6 pixels from the top of the artboard.
Using the ellipse tool (O), draw a 96 x 96 pixel circle and align the top to the center/top of the rectangle. Select both shapes and use the boolean tool to intersect the group.
Using the ellipse tool (O), draw a 48 x 48 pixel circle and align the bottom to the center/bottom of the rectangle. Select both shapes and use the boolean tool to intersect the group.
Flatten the shape (command + E) and double click it to make it editable. Select the top left and right points and give them a 2 pixel corner radius. Select the bottom left and right points and give them a 1 pixel corner radius.
Avoiding wars with clients is a matter of how you structure your engagements, along with how you spell out what you're doing in your proposals/contracts. That starts with estimating.
The biggest 2 rules I follow are these:
1. I do not EVER estimate a project in full from start-to-finish.
2. Once we're past initial Discovery (see below), I estimate in small chunks, e.g. "here's what will take us to the next iteration/review."
NEVER estimate past the point where you may get new information based on a build/test cycle.
Believe me when I say that you'll be wrong every time. Ask me how I know ;-)
So instead, first, I estimate a Consult/Discovery part that details what I think we need to do to get a handle on what's actually wrong here, and how long that will take.

2/ The sum of ETH holdings of ICO treasuries is now a little over 3.57M ETH (3.5% of supply). In April, the treasuries held 4.65 million ETH (4.5% of supply) indicating that they likely liquidated (or moved) about 23% since then.
3/ Despite the decline in ETH price, the selloff hasn’t been as drastic as many analysts anticipated. In the past two months, treasuries of projects that held ICOs liquidated (or moved) 172,00 ETH, or ~4.6% of total holdings.
4/ The most aggressive sellers were Status, district0x and Tierion (in order), which sold (or moved) nearly 55,000 ETH combined since September 9. Out of the 57 companies I tracked, 50% didn’t touch any of the ETH in their treasuries.
5/ At least 11 ICOs currently have a smaller “market capitalization” than the amount that they hold in their ETH treasuries alone (see table below).
The story doesn\u2019t say you were told not to... it says you did so without approval and they tried to obfuscate what you found. Is that true?— Sarah Frier (@sarahfrier) November 15, 2018
In the spring and summer of 2016, as reported by the Times, activity we traced to GRU was reported to the FBI. This was the standard model of interaction companies used for nation-state attacks against likely US targeted.
In the Spring of 2017, after a deep dive into the Fake News phenomena, the security team wanted to publish an update that covered what we had learned. At this point, we didn’t have any advertising content or the big IRA cluster, but we did know about the GRU model.
This report when through dozens of edits as different equities were represented. I did not have any meetings with Sheryl on the paper, but I can’t speak to whether she was in the loop with my higher-ups.
In the end, the difficult question of attribution was settled by us pointing to the DNI report instead of saying Russia or GRU directly. In my pre-briefs with members of Congress, I made it clear that we believed this action was GRU.
