How Facebook Messenger Bots Work (And If They’re Right For You) by https://is.gd/S4hAjA

Remember back in the ’80s, when we all thought that by the year 2000, we’d own flying cars and have legit robot maids like the Jetsons did? It felt like the future was just around the corner!

Fast forward to today – Siri, Cortana, and Alexa have showed up in our phones and living rooms, listening to our voices and doing their very best to carry out our demands.

If you paid attention to a little announcement earlier this year, you might think that Facebook chat bots (or “chat extensions”) are the next part of the future – the future future? – and they’re taking over social media marketing.

A pioneering computer scientist wants algorithms to be regulated like cars, banks, and drugs by https://is.gd/7FOiY3

It’s convenient when Facebook can tag your friends in photos for you, and it’s fun when Snapchat can apply a filter to your face. Both are examples of algorithms that have been trained to recognize eyes, noses, and mouths with consistent accuracy.

When these programs are wrong—like when Facebook mistakes you for your sibling or even your mom—it’s hardly a problem. In other situations, though, we give artificial intelligence much more responsibility, with larger consequences when it inevitably backfires.

It’s no secret that Facebook’s judgment calls on risky content are sometimes more than a little problematic. But just what are the rules guiding those decisions? You’ll know after today.

The Guardian has obtained leaked copies of over 100 internal documents outlining Facebook’s rules for handling sensitive content, and it’s clear that the social network is struggling to walk a fine line between freedom of expression and protecting users. At least some of it is understandable, but there are areas where its decision-making might rub you the wrong way.

Upcoming.org founder relaunches site four years after Yahoo shut it down by https://is.gd/6Awbo1

Before events were posted on Facebook, the place to find social activities on the internet back in the early 2000s was Upcoming.org. Founded by Andy Baio, the site combined an event calendar with social networking where everything was primarily sourced from the community.

Why Facebook Keeps Beating Every Rival: It’s the Network, of Course by https://is.gd/NkBZQR

The tech world just witnessed a robbery. The heist was so brazen you kind of had to admire it, even if it was pulled off with all the grace of a gas station stickup. Facebook barged into Snapchat’s happy Venice Beach, Calif. mansion, took a solid inventory of the goods, then lifted the crown jewels. First a version of Stories, the fun slide-show format that Snapchat created, appeared last year on Instagram, owned by Facebook. Then Snapchat’s features made their way to WhatsApp and Messenger, Facebook’s chat apps. A couple of weeks ago they got to the big leagues — Facebook’s main app — and the heist was complete.
