Is Facebook Responsible? / ¿Es Facebook Responsable?

EDITORIAL – IS FACEBOOK RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU BEING SCAMMED?

Most people don’t need to be told they’re addicted to technology and social media.

 
If reaching for your cell phone first thing in the morning doesn’t tell you as much, multiple scientific studies and books will. Now the people responsible for this modern-day addiction have admitted that was their plan all along.
 
In recent days we have seen multiple articles on this, but have you thought about how this applies to being victimized by Romance Scammers?
 
Silicon Valley’s Sean Parker, Facebook’s first president, has been telling anyone that will listen in interviews that the Social Media service “literally changes your relationship with society,” and “probably interferes with productivity in weird ways.” And, he added, “God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”
 
Facebook’s main goal is still to get and keep people’s attention, Parker said. “The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them, … was all about: ‘How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?’”
 
Attention, he said, was fueled by “a little dopamine hit every once in a while,” in the form of a like or a comment, which would generate more content, in the forms of more likes and comments.
 
This confirms what SCARS and others has long known, that Romance Scams are in fact a form of addition.
 
“It’s a social-validation feedback loop … exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology.”
 
Parker said that the inventors of social media platforms, including himself, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Instagram’s Kevin Systrom, “understood consciously” what they were doing. “And we did it anyway.”
 
Scammers only poorly understood this, but are well adapted to exploit it.
 
A major part of the scammer modus is to keep the victim connected and addiction to what the (fake) relationship provide – the “validation feedback look” – that the victim is desirable, loved, and worthy of the attentions of another person from across the world. It is that “I understand you” element that becomes the core of the addiction that this causes and the scammers devoutly exploit in their victims.
 
It is not only a revelation, but may also prove to be Facebook’s ultimate undoing that they were aware of the power of their platform to turn their subscribers into addicts, but may also be the ultimate liability in their contributory negligence in subjecting their subscribers the hundreds of millions of fake (scammer) profiles that can exploit this. In every real sense, this is equivalent to a bad drug side effect, and we will expect to see numerous class-action lawsuits.
 
Our organization stands ready to support any class-actions that may be coming forth. It just goes to show, be careful what you build and the unforeseen consequences that result, except in this case it was not unforeseen in was engineered in.

¿Es Facebook responsable?

EDITORIAL – ¿SE RESPONSABILIZA FACEBOOK POR SER ESCAMIFICADO?

La mayoría de las personas no necesitan que se les diga que son adictos a la tecnología y las redes sociales.

Si buscar su teléfono celular a primera hora de la mañana no le dice tanto, lo harán múltiples estudios científicos y libros. Ahora las personas responsables de esta adicción moderna han admitido que ese era su plan desde el principio.

En los últimos días hemos visto varios artículos sobre esto, pero ¿han pensado en cómo esto se aplica a ser víctima de los estafadores romances?

Sean Parker de Silicon Valley, el primer presidente de Facebook, ha estado diciéndole a cualquiera que escuchará en entrevistas que el servicio de Social Media “literalmente cambia su relación con la sociedad” y “probablemente interfiera con la productividad de maneras extrañas”. Y añadió: “Dios solo sabe lo que le está haciendo al cerebro de nuestros hijos “.

El objetivo principal de Facebook sigue siendo atraer y mantener la atención de la gente, dijo Parker. “El proceso de pensamiento que se dedicó a la creación de estas aplicaciones, siendo Facebook el primero de ellos, … se trataba de: ‘¿Cómo consumimos tanto tiempo y atención consciente como sea posible?'”.

La atención, dijo, fue impulsada por “un pequeño golpe de dopamina de vez en cuando”, en la forma de un me gusta o un comentario, que generaría más contenido, en forma de más me gusta y comentarios.

Esto confirma lo que SCARS y otros sabían desde hace tiempo, que las estafas romances son, de hecho, una forma de adición.

“Es un ciclo de retroalimentación de validación social … exactamente el tipo de cosa que un pirata informático como yo se nos ocurre, porque estás explotando una vulnerabilidad en la psicología humana”.

Parker dijo que los inventores de las plataformas de redes sociales, incluido él mismo, Mark Zuckerberg de Facebook y Kevin Systrom de Instagram, “entendieron conscientemente” lo que estaban haciendo. “Y lo hicimos de todos modos”.

Los estafadores solo lo entendieron mal, pero están bien adaptados para explotarlo.

Una parte importante del modo scammer es mantener conectada a la víctima y la adicción a lo que proporciona la relación (falsa), la “mirada de validación”, que la víctima es deseable, amada y digna de las atenciones de otra persona de todo el mundo. mundo. Es ese elemento “Te entiendo” que se convierte en el núcleo de la adicción que esto causa y los estafadores explotan devotamente en sus víctimas.

No solo es una revelación, sino que también puede ser la ruina final de Facebook el hecho de que conocían el poder de su plataforma para convertir a sus suscriptores en adictos, pero también puede ser la última responsabilidad en su negligencia contributiva al someter a sus suscriptores a los cientos de millones de perfiles falsos (scammer) que pueden explotar esto. En todos los sentidos, esto es equivalente a un efecto secundario de un fármaco malo, y esperamos ver numerosas demandas colectivas.

Nuestra organización está lista para apoyar cualquier acción de clase que pueda estar surgiendo. Simplemente va a mostrar, tenga cuidado con lo que construye y las consecuencias imprevistas que resultan, excepto en este caso no fue imprevisto en que fue diseñado.
