Information Operations and Facebook

Facebook has published a report, “Information Operations and Facebook” that outlines how Information Operations, defined as the actions of organizations to distort political sentiment, are conducted on the Facebook platform. It does a remarkable job of ignoring the inherent contradiction and conflict of interest of a company that makes its money delivering advertising trying to mitigate “information operations”. Reading between the lines, it means Facebook is going to stop those “information operations” that aren’t adding to its revenue stream.

Another opportunity to consider the wisdom of using Facebook at all.
