    Facebook’s Biggest Boondoggle Is Hyping Video

    The important question isn’t whether the social-media company didn’t tell advertisers as soon as it knew it had inflated the numbers (it says it did) but whether the video-content boom, which the social network has actively fueled since 2014, reflects any consumer demand. In 2016, the Wall Street Journal reported that for the previous two years, Facebook overestimated the attention videos got on its platform by using a metric that exaggerated the average amount of time users spent looking at a video. The higher number led advertisers to believe that users had a higher engagement with their content than Facebook actually achieved.

    Explainer: Facebook's WhatsApp flooded with fake news in Brazil election

    Facebook Inc's popular messaging service WhatsApp has become a political battleground in Brazil's most polarized election in decades, raising concerns that it is distorting debate beyond the public eye. Facebook has touted efforts to crack down on misinformation on its main platform ahead of the Oct. 28 presidential run-off between right-winger Jair Bolsonaro and leftist Fernando Haddad. Haddad now alleges that businessmen supporting Bolsonaro have been paying to bombard voters with misleading propaganda in violation of electoral law, which his rival denies.

    WhatsApp Bans More Than 100,000 Accounts in Brazil Election

    Facebook set up a "war room" to stem the tide of hate speech, false information and other damaging content during Brazil’s election this month, marking a test for the social network ahead of the November midterm elections in the U.S. While the company said it was able to thwart false information on its main social network, it’s had more trouble controlling misbehavior on WhatsApp, which is encrypted and virtually impossible to monitor. “We have cutting-edge technology to detect spam that identifies accounts with abnormal behavior so that they can’t be used to spread spam or misinformation," a WhatsApp spokesperson wrote in an email.

    With market on edge, investors look to tech trio

    The pressure is on for Amazon, Alphabet and Microsoft as they prepare to report quarterly results at a time when confidence in those market leaders looks increasingly fragile and in danger of derailing Wall Street's rally. After worries about higher interest rates sparked a steep sell-off in early October and again on Thursday, the S&P 500 remains down 5 percent from its Sept. 20 record high close, with top-shelf stocks including Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O), Netflix Inc (NFLX.O) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) showing little of their vitality from recent years. A quarterly report from Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) on Wednesday after the bell, followed by Alphabet and Amazon late on Thursday, will influence sentiment across Wall Street.

    [$$] Facebook Turns to U.K. Politician to Help Repair Its Image

    LONDON—Facebook Inc. has hired one of Britain’s best-known politicians as its top policy and communications executive, giving a Silicon Valley outsider the task of mending the social network’s image as it deals with increased political scrutiny in the U.S. and abroad. Facebook said Friday that Nick Clegg, who as deputy prime minister was Britain’s No. 2 leader from 2010 to 2015, would replace Elliot Schrage, who said in June that he was stepping down. Mr. Clegg starts his new job Monday and will move to California in January.

    New 'Dark Ads' pro-Brexit Facebook campaign may have reached over 10M people, say researchers

    A major new campaign of disinformation around Brexit, designed to stir up U.K. 'Leave' voters, and distributed via Facebook, may have reached over 10 million people in the U.K., according to new research. The source of the campaign is so far unknown, and will be embarrassing to Facebook, which only this week claimed it was clamping down on "dark" political advertising on its platform. Researchers for the U.K.-based digital agency 89up allege that Mainstream Network — which looks and reads like a "mainstream" news site but which has no contact details or reporter bylines — is serving hyper-targeted Facebook advertisements aimed at exhorting people in Leave-voting U.K. constituencies to tell their MP to “chuck Chequers.” Chequers is the name given to the U.K. Prime Ministers’s proposed deal with the EU regarding the U.K.’s departure from the EU next year.

    Facebook Hires Ex-Deputy Premier Clegg to Lead Lobbying Push

    As leader of the Liberal Democrats, Clegg was at the heart of the British government from 2010 to 2015. Clegg’s hire comes as Facebook is under fire from regulators, politicians and authorities around the world on issues ranging from user privacy breaches, to the proliferation of fake news and hate speech on its platforms. In an example of the kind of scrutiny Facebook is now coming under, the U.K. Parliament’s Culture Committee on Saturday released details of what it said was an anonymous political campaign to reject Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit plan.
