The secret history of Facebook depression

To early users, the internet held such promise for people and communities. Now, on the eve of Facebook's 15th birthday, social media is making people depressed. What happened?

@Tobias That is the only reason I can think of too. And that is good enough for most people. Recently I had two striking experiences with it. 1) a book launch event, which was publicized via both traditional media, printed invitations and Facebook. 2) an exhibition which was publicized only via Facebook. Both had a similar crowd. Similar quality, almost the same number of people. Almost everyone is on Facebook. "Reach" is the key.

It's very telling that "reach" is a reason for marketers and promoters. It's not a reason for normal people to use Facebook or Twitter — in fact it makes it clearer that normal people are only there to be sold to. You're volunteering to be shown ads.

Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, and YouTube (Google/Alphabet, Inc) have formed the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism and Amber Rudd is asking them to quietly drop end-to-end encryption from their products. You should not believe a single word any of those companies tells you about end-to-end encryption or privacy on their platforms ever again. PS. WhatsApp is owned by Facebook.

Frio theme
@UX Watchdogs @Friendica Theme Developer @Friendica Support @Friendica Developers
In the last week there was some discussion about my experimental frio theme.
I decided to summerize some of my thoughts (some have been already highlighted in a german talk) about this theme and friendica. Also with regard to possible committers.

Some perspectives/direction I have thought about in case of the frio theme (which also would affect friendica core).

1.) The private messages page
The list of all messages could be displayed at the left aside. Similar like it's done now when the user has opened a message (in the present state a message-preview is in left aside). But it should be extended as full message list navigation. A list which is scrollable with the last 20-50 messages/conversations and when a user scrolls down to the end of the list next 20-50 messages will appended through ajax. This would need a endpoint where we can get message json data. Additionally there should a filter field in the left aside which filters the messages by recipient or topic. For this the new js textcomplete function can be used (like I did it to make contact filtering possible at the contact page)
Should the aside message list be extended as full message list navigation it's maybe worth to think about to have a own page template for messages which would give the aside area a little bit more width and does make the main area a little bit smaller.

2.) The photo page
I have thought (but don't have any experience if it's realizable) about to have a facebook like photo page. This would mean that if a user opens a photo some kind of overlay would open with the photo at the left side and the comments in a row at the right side. The right comments row could have a tab where the user can switch (if he/she should have the permissions) between comments and editing the photo.

3.) json endpoints
We had some questions from a motivated theme developer 2 months ago. He wanted to do a theme and wanted to overwrite friendica core functions to get json data.
While I was working at the frio theme I realized that is very helpful to have data as json because you can load them through ajax and don't need to reload the page. This does make the use of friendica very fluently and enjoyable. In frio I extended the acl endpoint (to make contact filtering possible with textcomplete) and the frio_hovercard addon gives another endpoint for contact data which is needed for the hovercard (+ it's can provide the tpl data for jSmart - but to this I come later). If the message-list aside full navigation idea (point 1 above) would be realized another endpoint for json message list data would be needed). This would mean another addon. But it is no real good solution to extend the theme with 100 addons. Instead we should think about how could friendica provide important data next to html also in json. (An interesting/helpful thing would be to request pconfig data in json)

4.) jSmart
The quantity of html inside php and javascript files should be limited as much as possible. For this we have templates and Smarty/jSmart. In some cases we need the same templates for php as for js. Luckily I found jSmart. With jSmart the smarty templates can be used for js. But since js can't get access to server files the template needs to be accessible somehow. For the frio hovercard the template is provided through an endpoint which outputs the raw content of a template file.
In this case it would be a benefit to have an general endpoint to provide the raw content of the requested templates (for the frio contact page the contact template containing in the present state the content for the php and the content for jSmart - to have this twice seems to be no good solution to me).

5.) Content type of an item
We have different content types in the network stream. E.g. normal posts, comments, pokes, likes, shares, photos, events and so on. Every content type contains different data. In Friendica should provide the content type to the theme (with it's different data) to the theme so that in dependence of the content type the posts can be styled. To explain this the event is very suitable. Does a event have to look like a normal post, while it isn't really a normal post. So the theme needs to know that it isn't a normal post, so we can use an event template. An event containing a subject, a summery, a location, a starting and a ending time. At the present time all this data isn't accessible for the theme developer. It's all content body and so it's only possible to take it as it is

6.) Remote Nav
Since I started to uses friendica I often had the feeling (when leaving my node) rather of jumping between webpages than to have a social network feeling. To limit this impression I inserted some code so that nodes of friendica contacts will be opened in the the same tab and not in a new one. In addition the top nav will be nearly the same like the user had before in his/her local account (for this the remote user needs to have enabled also the frio theme). At the remote page will be a nav bar which includes also a symbol for e.g. the network stream, the private mail, the contact page and nearly the whole user menu. This links will link back to the local pages of the users. E.g. if the user presses at the contact symbol he/she will get to his/her own contact page. This should strengthen the feeling of a real network. Some menu point could not included because the remote server doesn't now the user settings of the remote user (for this access for pconfig data via json could be helpful - have a look some points above). Some links e.g. the search, apps, help & documentation linking to the remote node. E.g. if I'm on a remote node I want to search something at this node and not at my own.
This may a little bit confusing for the user but I think we should working on making this better visible than to remove this. This part needs some more input.

Have in mind that I had to extend the filebrowser.js to make it work with frio.

Sagen wir mal: Ich habe von Gopher gehört, es aber nie bewusst benutzt, ebensowenig, wie damals die Mailboxsysteme.

Interessant ist es sicher, aber ob HTML6 nun DRM hat oder nicht, spielt für das HTTP ja keine Rolle, das W3C wird uns also "das Web" nicht kaputter machen können, als es durch facebook, DuRöhre, Tante Google und die ganzen t*r-Dienste ohnehin schon ist ;-=

The web is indeed already dead.
Content viewed via mobile devices is usually viewed with a dedicated app and not the device's webbrowser. The same is true for the living room where content is presented with special apps on the appliances in use.

"The Web" is still an open infrastructure, it's just that content providers have chosen to reduce it to just that: content delivery infrastructure using HTTP.

So, why bother about a disappearing technology? If we want an "open" web, it is still there for us to use it: There are open HTTP-servers available, we can generate HTML-adhering content without the DRM part and create software which can display that content. And the big browser companies will probably be able to display it too...

The W3C is making standards for a shrinking market - the PC. People are opening their facebook apps and say "I've used the internet today." - which is technically correct, but did they really use an open web?

Mir stellt sich gerade die Frage, ob man diesen Button nicht einfach abschaffen sollte. In Facebook und Twitter hat der meines Erachtens dorch vornehmlich die Funktion "Aufmerksamkeit" zu messen. Anhand der Anzahl der "Likes" wird der Erfolg und letztendlich die Relevanz eines Beitrags bewertet. Und sofern etwas verkauft werden soll, die kommerzielle Wirksamkeit.

Wenn ich deinen heise post nun like bedeutet dies: ich finde es schlecht, dass facebook das nicht anbiete und wünsche mir das feature.
oder bedeutet es, ich mag facebook nicht und finde es gut, dass das feature fehlt, weil damit andere netzwerke einen incentive zum wechsel mehr haben?

Ebenso mit unlike. Wenn sich jeder nutzer was anderes beim drücken der knöpfe denkt, kann man sie sich generell sparen.

The next time you find yourself using Microsoft or Facebook or Apple (...) products, ask yourself if there isn't an open source alternative - and if there is, go check it out. Most commercial software has readily available alternatives that were developed in the open source community.

If you talk to somebody about using open source products, they'll usually start talking about the different meanings of the word 'free'; e.g. free as in beer, free as in freedom, etc. At the same time, many will try to push products on you with licenses written by lawyers which dictate exactly what you can and cannot do with your 'free as in freedom' software. [I always found this amusing.]

But I think they are all missing the point. I develop and use open source software - and my reasons for using it have very little to do with 'free'; and have everything to do with the fact that open source is developed by definition in an environment that is open and transparent. I know a bit about software, and I also know that you can bury manipulative and deceptive algorithms inside software in order to control and influence the software "users". During my years of employment in the industry, I've been asked to create software with manipulative and deceptive intentions, and I've also been affected by manipulative and deceptive algorithms which were created by other companies to stifle competition by the very companies I worked for. You don't see these algorithms because they are tucked away behind a curtain and a veil of secrecy. But let's summarise: software tends to embody within itself the values and motives of the organisations who create it, both good and bad.

So I use open source software because ultimately it is an ethical and "trust" decision. I tend to put more trust into things which are open and transparent and developed by people and organisations who embody those values than things which are closed and manipulative and developed by people and organisations that embody those values.

Thank you for your time. Have a nice day.

Tor guys obviously market onion as the replacement of HTTPS and the future of the web. So if everyone starts using onion, just as HTTPS is slowly replacing HTTP, Facebook will indeed have to adapt.

That said, I just don't see how Facebook can adapt to anonymous users. If Facebook starts charging for its services and removes all advertising, then yes, it could work, because Facebook won't care where you're from.

But this will be the end of Facebook - users will move away to new and "free" alternatives, and so will governments and big corporations, who want access to this data.

Also consider the following simple question - why would anyone use Tor to hide their identity, if he'd log into his Facebook account, just to confirm it's actually him?

Because the want to hide their identity from other entities than facebook, f.e. the turkish or chinese government. I know it is highly questionable to use a service like facebook, when you are in a situation like this (f.e. living in a country which tries to block access to websites like facebook) and it strange, how this fits together with facebooks real-name-policy. However, facebook employees obviously think otherwise. Actually I won't rack my head about what facebook employees think. But I am sure, Tor will not ruin their business plan.

Another question - what would happen if millions of people log into Facebook, while using Tor? Facebook can then compare their public IPs from previous logins with their current Tor IPs and the Tor network will become transparent to them and anyone willing to pay for this information.

I highly question that this will ever happen. If it does, the Tor community will deal with the facebook node(s) as it does with other malicious nodes and block them.

At this point in time, Tor is not used by the masses. So even if, as you stated, facebook is losing a significant amount of data per user when people come through Tor, it's of no relevance as more than 99,9% will access facebook without it. If this would ever change in the future facebook (and Tor) will adapt if necessary.

Facebook, as any other site, is dependent on at least three things:

1. Browser information, and most importantly cookies, which track you through installed Facebook widgets on millions of sites, and also data from their affiliates, who also track users with similar code. In other words, they know on which sites you've been and what you're interested in.

2. Your IP. That's your geo location.

3. What you post. They scan your publications for relevant personal data.

So they have a pretty good idea that a person in a certain city is interested in watches, guns, the latest iPhone model, new BMW M3 series, and erotic videos of Asian teens.

Now they can target him with relevant ads from any seller, who thinks this person is a potential client of theirs.

How about the same scenario, but with a Tor user?

1. They have his screen resolution, OS, etc., but not cookies to tell them anything about the preferences of this person.

2. No idea where this person is from.

3. They still have what was posted on Facebook. People will post about watches, BMW M3's and iPhones. But they will not post about guns and pornographic content.

So, not only do they have only one of three data sets that are vital to their business, but the one they can work with is not complete. And we can't really ignore the fact that geo targeting no longer works, which is essential for Facebook's business - as a seller, I won't care if someone on the other side of the globe likes iPhones or BMW M3's, if it's not feasible for me to ship these items to them.

Also consider the following simple question - why would anyone use Tor to hide their identity, if he'd log into his Facebook account, just to confirm it's actually him?

Another question - what would happen if millions of people log into Facebook, while using Tor? Facebook can then compare their public IPs from previous logins with their current Tor IPs and the Tor network will become transparent to them and anyone willing to pay for this information.

Am I missing something, which will validate the coexistance of data mining software platforms with a network trying to hide the identities of its users?

Actually, there's one thing - mutual profits.

However, I think you missed my point about Facebook and Tor. Facebook sells targeted ads. How will the owner of a new London cafe target only the locals? I don't live in the UK, but I could use a London based relay or exit node. In the same way, a resident of London may appear to be from New York. So how will Facebook convince its clients to use their services?

Different to classic banner ads services or google, Facebook is not dependent on browser information to throw targeted ads at the user. As soon as you log in, they've got enough information about you. And right now they can be pretty sure that only a fraction of people will use Tor to access their site. Because it is significantly slower and because websites that use location data behave awkward when used through Tor (which not many users will tolerate just for the fun of it).

The "beauty" of the facebook concept is that users give the majority of information facebook needs willingly by f.e. liking the site of the "London cafe", by connecting to people, etc. Tor is no threat to facebook.

You may be right about HTTP, but it involves additional expenses, which not everyone can afford - thankfully Let's encrypt it are now around. It's also pointless to set up or pay for HTTPS for sites, where no private data is transferred.

HTTPS is useful when we need to exchange sensitive information, but just as HTTP it doesn't hide what site the user is accessing, just what data is transferred. In fact, if HSTS is not set up, most sessions begin with HTTP (and with HSTS enabled, the first session uses HTTP anyway; thankfully future ones default to HTTPS). So, yes, onion is a great protocol for securing the net and obfuscating the servers and the users.

However, I think you missed my point about Facebook and Tor. Facebook sells targeted ads. How will the owner of a new London cafe target only the locals? I don't live in the UK, but I could use a London based relay or exit node. In the same way, a resident of London may appear to be from New York. So how will Facebook convince its clients to use their services?

Tor and Facebook are on the opposite sides, when it comes to the future of the web. Tor wants to obfuscate user identities, Facebook wants to track people for (hopefully only) marketing and advertising purposes. Right now, it sounds to me that the Tor developers are willing to compromise the future of the web in exchange for personal gains.

Btw, in the video they talk about load balancing. They may not have realized it yet, but they are introducing another insecure component in their network architecture - they are giving priority to servers with more processing power. Which means that companies and organizations with the right resources can attract and monitor most of the Tor traffic through their own infrastructure. And as they say, if you compare one data set with another, you will be able to successfully track devices across the network.

[...] but that would require the entire net running three protocols (http, https, onion) and most administrators will frown upon it, especially considering that setting up an onion server is not as straightforward as editing an apache virtual configuration file.

I think unencrypted HTTP will be history in a few years. Where I work all our servers will serve solely HTTPS until the end of this year.

If Facebook is indeed working with Tor, Tor will be compromised for profits.

Well, in the same way as HTTPS and TCP/IP is compromised for profits. Tor has been used by CIA and MI6 almost from the start. At the same time it is used by journalists, whistle-blowers and freedom fighters. It's simply very fundamental security technology.
3 anos atrás I watched the video. Quite interesting and informative. I understand how using only the Tor network would be faster, but that would require the entire net running three protocols (http, https, onion) and most administrators will frown upon it, especially considering that setting up an onion server is not as straightforward as editing an apache virtual configuration file.

Also, I find it rather strange that Facebook would accept Tor. They wouldn't trade targeted ads (with Tor, there's no IP geo location), which is a business for hundreds of millions, just to be of service to a couple of political dissidents in some third world country.

If Facebook is indeed working with Tor, Tor will be compromised for profits.

Huch, das geht ja ab bei den Diaspora-Entwicklern. Die technischen Gründe kenne ich nicht, es wäre für mich allerdings sehr schade, den Austausch zu meinen Kontakten bei #Diaspora zu verlieren.

Jason Robinsons (finaler?) Kommentar:

I guess we have the feedback of the people that matter.

Since it's commit messages that are need to be followed (according to Benjamin), maybe someone can start following the work so everybody interested doesn't have to do it separately. I'm not interested in trying to follow the things re The Federation any more (which I guess is dead on arrival) with the attitude on our side.

I guess also this means that we're not any more interested in the SocialWG work since, unknown to me, you're talking about making a proper implementation of the current non-protocol. I was under the impression, as a core project member, that we were only extracting the current code out and then possibly adopting something else like the SocialWG work. I guess before you spend countless hours on the protocol work it would be nice to discuss these things within even core team members - or is that just Jonne and Dennis now?

Thanks Dennis for your constant attitude regarding anyone else, including other core members.

I think I'll take a little breather on the 1-2 hours a day I spend on mainly promoting diaspora and the federation, and supporting diaspora users via various channels. If someone else wants to do some of that, let me know and I'll set you up with some access to the accounts. Clearly, consulting other core team members is not needed in this project where communication is not wanted by a certain part of the core.

Sorry for dragging you all into this. Dennis is btw the reason we are talking here because he refused to argue these points in private messages where this all started.

Changes to the diaspora protocol

Some changes have recently been made to the diaspora protocol while extracting it outside the main application.

While this is great work and changes do need to be made, in this case changes were made without raising awareness of those changes to all the stakeholders in the protocol.

Please, the protocol is more than diaspora. Even if it is "YOLO code", coming from one developer, that doesn't mean it doesn't have to be supported, maintained and more importantly, not broken for ALL stakeholders.

Change is fine, change without announcement is not fine. I'm guessing this was just an oversight, not realising that asking the other server software stacks to verify and test would be a good idea.

To me, and probably the person writing the actual code, this is clear. But I just had a discussion with some other core developers who don't think consulting stakeholders is necessary.

So, to raise the point and to take an official decision, we need to vote on the matter.

Labor Stimulus by:Gillard and Swan.

Sometime this year, we taxpayers may again receive another 'Economic Stimulus' payment.
This is indeed a very exciting program, and I'll explain it by
Using a Q & A format:
Q. What is an 'Economic Stimulus' payment ?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q. Where will the government get this money ?
A. From taxpayers.

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?
A. Only a smidgen of it.

Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?
A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?
A. Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the Aust. Economy by spending your stimulus cheque wisely:

If you spend the stimulus money at Coles, the money willgo to China or Sri Lanka .

If you spend it on petrol, your money will go to the Arabs.

If you purchase a computer, it will go to India , Taiwan , Malaysia or China .

If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico ,Philippines and
New Zealand.

If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea
If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide itoffshore.
Instead, keep the money in Australia by:

1) Spending it at garage sales.

2) Going to the footy.

3) Spending it on prostitutes or

4) Beer or

5) Tattoos.

(These are the only Australian businesses still operating in Australia )
Go to a footy game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a garage-sale and drink beer all day!
No need to thank me, I'm just glad I could be of help.

for a free visit at rsvp[at]networkcultures[dot]org.
for the full conference program, including project and
speaker presentations. It looks fabulous!
I, Carlo v. Loesch, am also invited to a debate on
"Pitfalls of Building Social Media Alternatives" where it
is probably my job to dismantle the myth of usefulness
related to server-based social technology - how good is
your alternative social network, if you can't trust the
server it runs on? Even if you own it? And what in the
world can be good about scattering private data over
dozens of servers in a federation? The entire paradigm
social alternatives have been working on, is broken.
If you know PSYC, PSYC's new implementation in C is the higher
social messaging layer in the secushare architecture. GNUnet
fulfills lower-level obfuscation and routing jobs, a bit like
Tor does, but more efficiently. PSYC can be compared to XMPP
or JSON over HTTP, only it is on average a dozen times more
efficient than either of those.
We'd like to thank the UnlikeUs team for inviting us over
and are looking forward to a thrilling conference experience!
