Listen: Facebook, Jason Middleton, Ford discussed on Armstrong and Getty
"Ten business. Police manipulated Facebook accounts in a sting operation. Jason Middleton has the story in a check on Wall Street. Investors have not picked a direction yet markets still mixed fake accounts and profiles on social media platforms. Are definitely not new, but how fakes can be used and applied is another example of how social media can be at best manipulated. And at worst weaponized. The guardian reports that US immigration and customs enforcement ice violated Facebook policy by creating fake social media profiles tied to the university of Farmington, a fictional university ice created to identify people committing immigration fraud. This thing began in two thousand fifteen and netted more than six hundred people undercover agents used a fake website and government documents, and then confirmed it was eligible to enroll foreign students and create fake Facebook accounts to do. So from Facebook's statement law enforcement authorities like everyone else are required to use their real name. On facebook. And we make this policy clear on our public facing law enforcement guidelines page. I'm Jason Middleton. We are following another recall by Ford, it affects more than three hundred thousand pickups. It's the second time Ford has recalled its F-series accompany fears, the first fix led to the second problem originally four recall the F series because water was getting onto the heater cables. This time around Ford says the fix may have damaged those cables. This news report is sponsored by the San Francisco Giants, don't miss all the promotions this weekend at oracle park.
