Privatsphäre: Signal vs Facebook

Signal Tries to Run the Most Honest Facebook Ad Campaign Ever, Immediately Gets Banned – A series of Instagram ads run by the privacy-positive platform Signal got the messaging app booted from the former’s ad platform, according to a blog post Signal published on Tuesday. The ads were meant to show users the bevy of data that Instagram and its parent company Facebook collects on users, by… targeting those users using Instagram’s own adtech tools. … Based on this kind of minute data, Signal was able to create some super-targeted ads that were branded with the exact targeting specs that Signal used. If an ad was targeted towards K-pop fans, the ad said so. If the ad was targeted towards a single person, the ad said so. And if the ad was targeted towards London-based divorcees with degrees in art history, the ad said so. … Apparently, Facebook wasn’t a fan of this sort of transparency into its system.“


„The Instagram ads Facebook won’t show you – Companies like Facebook aren’t building technology for you, they’re building technology for your data. They collect everything they can from FB, Instagram, and WhatsApp in order to sell visibility into people and their lives. – This isn’t exactly a secret, but the full picture is hazy to most – dimly concealed within complex, opaquely-rendered systems and fine print designed to be scrolled past. … We created a multi-variant targeted ad designed to show you the personal data that Facebook collects about you and sells access to. … Being transparent about how ads use people’s data is apparently enough to get banned; in Facebook’s world, the only acceptable usage is to hide what you’re doing from your audience.“

Trump: „Social Media Platform“

„Donald Trump’s ‚social media platform‚ has launched and it’s just a blog – After months of promising his own social media network for banned posters, former President Donald Trump on Tuesday launched a new section of his website that’s essentially just a WordPress blog. – The new ‚platform‘ is styled like a generic version of Twitter but hosted as a running blog of commentary from Trump.“
