Adam Mosseri, who was reportedly "deeply concerned" and "lost sleep" over Facebook's role in the Rohingya genocide, is presently in charge of Instagram.
You can see a long set of internal Facebook email chains here, in which Mosseri expresses his belief that 'perceived' harm isn't really technically a violation of their terms of service and that he and Zuckerberg will be declining to open any headcount to mitigate abusive use of their service.
We looked into it on Instagram—and found the platform:
⚠️ suppressed hashtags
⚠️ demoted photos of soldiers, tanks, and city ruins
⚠️ deleted captions without warning
⚠️ categorized comments criticizing Israel + supporting Palestine as “spam”
⚠️ limited users’ ability to appeal moderation decisions

I'm fortunate to have access to some (often expensive) gear that helps me make the images that I want to make. I've been serious about photography for the better part of half a century. I'm not going to apologize for prioritizing having the tools that help me achieve the results I seek.
But I don't have a car, for what it's worth.
White House reverses West Bank policy, calling Israeli settlements illegal
The decision was in response to reports that the far-right government of Netanyahu was planning further settlement expansion, an official said. #press
"Canada-based University of Waterloo is racing to remove M&M-branded smart vending machines from campus after outraged students discovered the machines were covertly collecting facial-recognition data without their consent."
Almost my entire career has consisted of correcting fantasies about how well security works:
"Computers have become impenetrable fortresses used by evildoers to hide their evil deeds! Let's outlaw encryption for everyone!"
"Software bugs and malware are problems of the past! Let's vote on our phones!"
And so on.
@riana So this is analogous to complaining that the phone company doesn’t automatically record everyone’s calls and that the post office doesn’t routinely open and copy everyone’s letters.
