Turns out, the people who work at Facebook are fighting just as much as the rest of us

"Out the people who work at facebook are fighting just as much as the rest of us from American public media. This is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. FACEBOOK is feeling the pressure to deal with election disinformation this week, the FBI uncovered a new Russian propaganda campaign targeting the twenty twenty election facebook announced. It would block new political ads for a week before the election on Thursday it said it would take down videos in which the president urged people in. North. Carolina to vote twice, which is illegal and activist asked facebook to ban event listings like the one that encouraged people to arm themselves and go to Kenosha. Wisconsin to confront protesters two people were shot and killed in Kenosha. So how does it feel to work at facebook right now, Ryan Mack is a senior tech reporter at buzzfeed. He says, the company has an internal communications platform called workplace and it is full of debate. Imagine what's going on on your facebook feed right now and that's happening exactly in the same way internally at facebook where there's more than fifty thousand police at have access to this thing. People are mad. There's other side as well in some cases. Defending the gunman in playing devil's. In In. So this is kind of devolved into this back and forth where Zucker actually stepped in earlier this week. and Said, look we need to have more discussions. We're GONNA. Movies into certain groups, but you're not gonNA be able to. Post openly argumentative things on our platform and the funny thing about workplaces at things also trend on workplace as well. So you can see when when things trend and so these things that get a lot of engagement because of the arguments often trend at the top which then creates this positive feedback loop where where people an arguing more and seeing it more and yeah. So it's it's it's not pretty. So, you're saying that facebook has an internal facebook. then. Mark. Zuckerberg has stepped in to police. The irony is hurting me in the head right now. He's announced kind of these new ways of looking at content. It remains to be seen what they actually do. There are hundreds if not thousands of groups on workplace and so imagine that you're at home all day you're cooped up you WANNA talk to your colleagues you WanNa be in the mix Were places where you're hanging out right for people who haven't been facebook I mean it's like entering to city a dreamy bubble, right? It's a city it like every wall is covered with art all the conference rooms have cute names. There's like redwood growing in the middle of their. Outdoor Park. There's the roof garden. A barber, you have a barbecue shop. Bikes repair shop. Yeah. Right. An and all, and they're balloons all over the like it's your face. Booker Verse Serie You. Know I mean it's like it is a lovely place to be, and I wonder if that's your thing you now that you have people at home like sort of like snapped out of it a little bit. If that you know if you were watching Mark Zuckerberg screen instead of in a room with all of your friends and fellow believers. Would it change your perspective a little bit. Does. Eliminate some of the the experience of working at facebook. It's actually really funny. 'cause we get these So before all hands meetings, facebook employees up vote questions of what they want to ask. Mark. Zuckerberg for the week and some of the questions like when are we gonna get like a snack budget for home? Are we gonNA like how do we get? How are we gonNA improve our lives at home and they were actually bonuses given to employees at trying to improve homeworking situations. They have disability to watch and send out you know some of their thoughts on what's going on as it happens whereas like if there was no pandemic, they were in the office, it'd be most of them would be watching this remember park. I guess the other question is, do you have a sense of how many people? ARE THAT UPSET BECAUSE They don't seem to be having huge impact. So it's interesting. FACEBOOK has these internal surveys. One of the questions in there as you think, facebook is making the world a better place. Right after the company did not take down the infamous looting shooting post from Donald Trump, you saw like twenty, twenty, five percentage point drop. That is facebook's data showing their employees are. Not Believing in that mission anymore at least or at least this one incident caused leave not mission. Would you say they have a chance at making that internal change. One of the things here that people have to realize that the power lies in the hands of Mark Zuckerberg he. Has Decision Making power because he made maintains majority voting control over the company. We look back at the walkout, for example, at the beginning of June in the company released a statement and said like we hear you kind of thing but like. Mark Zuckerberg really do anything to change how the company operates think so in like. It's up to him basically, what happens on the platform Ryan Mack is a senior tech reporter at buzzfeed.

"Probably gonna wear y'all out over the years with how obsessed with China now. But I just think it's interesting, the Soviet Union was seen as such a threat to the world. I mean, the whole world is structured around the battle between communism in the free world and China for whatever reasons is getting a free pass on this. And a lot of it has to do with people are making so much money off of it, back in the day, people on the right were warning everyone about the threat of communism and the Soviet Union people in the left or saying, no, no, no, no, you're, you're overreacting or they're just implementing it wrong or whatever with China. It's the opposite. It seems like you've got a lot of university. Professors decrying the civil human rights violations of China and how awful they are. But so many people on the right are making money off of China. They're willing to overlook all the bad stuff. They do in the bigger and more. Powerful China gets a all the better for our company. That's just more people. That can afford to buy shoes or whatever. And there are a lot of surprising people making a lot of money. And that's one of the topics Ryan Mack has been reporting on Ryan senior tech reporter with BuzzFeed news based in San Francisco and joins us now. Hello, ryan. How are you? Good. How are you? Good. It's a pleasure to have you on. So the headline US universities in retirees are funding. The technology behind China's surveillance state. Give us a brief outline of what you're writing about. Sure thing. Well, we take a look at you very fast growing recognition companies in China and checker two largest dedicated recognition companies in the world. They're called magazine sense time about each more than a billion dollars and are valued at more than four billion. And basically, what these companies do is they help develop software and facial recognition algorithms to let's say, let's say you have a bunch of security footage that you want to run through against a database of photos, you can recognize people's faces based on based on those images. And that's, that's basically what they're creating. Right. And, you know, if it were to sign into your Facebook account, or, or, you know, to apprehend murderers, I think we all might have at least some soft spot for it. But boy, the why the way China's implementing this technology is pretty nasty. There's, there's a wide range of use cases, which is why these companies are so valuable in factor. They're not much older than five years old. And, and it grown to the size. There are kind of positive applications for this, but there are also security applications when you use that with the, the communist Chinese communist party, and the they have persecute it gets a little dicey in. We're talking about, you know, you mentioned in your article that the, the millions of, of, of Muslims that they've got in these political reeducation camps their, you know, their concentration camps. A lot of them were dented with the facial recognition software. Right. A population called leaguers or which is a Muslim ethic. Population lives mainly in the province in northwest, China and Xinjiang is one of the most heavily surveilled places in the world. And yes, and some of the second is helping to survey will and watch these people million of more than a million of which have been put into these political education, camps, simply because of their religion or because they don't agree with, with certain things of the clinical reeducation camps millions of people and it's just not getting attention at all people are so dumb. And orange, I think evil begins ends with Adolf Hitler. Why wonder well you know, when I was in school, the big apart, anti-apartheid disinvest movement was huge. When you went to these people and said, hey, you're investing heavily in one of the most effective tools of oppression on earth here, what the folks say the universities. Other funds. Interesting. We don't they don't really say I mean, a lot of them deferred to the venture capital, the private equity firms that they invest through for comments, only one Los Angeles, pension, and public employees pension fund, Sarah was the one was the only one that said they would reevaluate investments but yeah, they have a little bit of as plausible deniability here. These funds universities foundations like universities like Princeton pension funds. Like, for example, they invest through private equity capital funds that then put their money into these companies, hire these companies because you don't want to do it yourself. Or you just want to be more than let these, these investors take the wheel and look that looks great. When these companies, they're investing in games, Facebook or Twitter, but it's less great. When they're investing in recognition that are used to oppress. People got correct you there Ryan Mack Facebook is, but official stance Armstrong and Getty show.

"I I've been thinking about you recently because I've talked to a lot of different people. And you are highly opinionated you fancy yourself to be pretty good at the personnel. And and drafting, and trades and you follow college football. Unlike a lot of guys a lot of former NFL players, you are really into college football, you and Clinton both or a really into it. So I wanna start with the quarterback issue. If you're the GM how do you solve the quarterback issue here in the off season? To me is very simple right now. And in all lays on the air on cardinals. I think they're making it clear that they're gonna take calamari with the first pick. And if they do that we have to get him a second round draft pick and case keenum, case keenum is a guy that been in that all sense. He was in the outfits in college. He'll be the bitch tutor possibly for Kyle Murray in that I'll I think we have to make a move on draft day to get jobs rose and not only will he be the number one quarterback in this draft. If he was in this jail, but you get him with his guaranteed money already paid said, let's up to be pretty much the best case scenario considering you have to take Alex contract. I think Josh Rosen on nothing. What do you like about Rosen because it sounds like you're sold on him? Well to think about it is he can make every through on the field. He reminds me a lot of met. Ryan if you look at Meg Ryan Mack match racing as he got older. He. He played the game. Everybody started a ton of games in college. He was a polish quarterback, and that tell anybody if you had to play behind areas Zona cardinal office of line you would've stunk last year, they Johnson stunk behind it out. It was impossible for him to succeed. The having outfits of last he comes to the race games. I was applying automated ten times is running game is better. I can't better received. But everything is set up for him. To succeed is the red scheme that offensive line was was bad. Minnesota's was the worst in the league last year. But Arizona's was awful as well. What if the cardinals decide not to train them? And by the way, it was interesting yesterday a lot of his teammates like David Johnson and Chandler Jones in few others came out and said, they really like in respect Josh Rosen, which by the way, I liked that you heard that from some of his teammates that they really thought that he had some. True leadership ability. But let's just say the cardinals decide, you know, what we're not giving them up for a second. We're not giving them up for a package of a second third and fifth or a second. Case keenum were keeping him. Now. How do you solve the problem? Yeah..

"But it had the benefit of being super clear, especially in the era when that didn't exist by the same token Facebook has that same motto like for longest time. I laughed I would linked in stock Mark Zuckerberg, and he had a very minimal profile because he didn't really need to be only. But all you had was a motto was Michael to make the world. More open and more connected. But it's okay to answer your question. Bree. I have a number of friends and a few close friends who work there, but they were for they didn't go there right out of school. They joined a little bit later, and I feel like they were more formed and a bias because they're my friends I feel like they're more thoughtful about these things they don't buy that as much, but then again, they don't probably have as much power. And certainly don't have on jeopardy of other people like this is more from the outside. There's a famous memo that was the also by Charlie wise. I think at at BuzzFeed, I'm sorry. It was Ryan Mack at BuzzFeed, and it was written by an Andrew Bosworth notice BAAs, and he talks and he's been to the comfy since like oh five or six, and he talks about in this article, he talks about how they don't the people inside the employee's at Facebook. Don't question what they're doing because they think is an automatic good. Even if it's not. Yeah. And it's a it's a fascinating article. We should add it to the the show notes. But it he when does thing when this memo was leaked fusion later like this past summer. He said, hey, I didn't really believe everything here. I was just trying to be provocative to get people to talk about things and push it back, but again going back, then Thompson, I agree with Ben. This was actually the problem was it's like the he was he's told the truth. The beginning of the memo like people are true believers, all this good work. They do on products and everything it doesn't mean anything except what their growth team what they call internally everything by hook or by crook needed to grow the network to expand. The number of users was going was more important than all of it. And then he literally says things like the the work we do with user permissions like like like the example of Android, and then the work will have to do in China. All of it. So I I have to push back knowing into get turn. It wasn't that. I have to say this like that that the Nate mission statement there. I actually don't find Microsoft statement, like pudding computer on the desk of every home. I understand how that could be seen as a little are welcome in the eighties and nineties, you know, what it was actually real blessing to have a computer in your home, especially with children there that that is a mission objective. I can get behind as one of the main targets of gamer gate who really felt the full force of what happens when everybody in the world is more connected online, including people that hate women in a very organized in their hatred of women and have easy access to all kinds of connected information about people's at.

This I would really argue is an evil vision in enough itself if you don't have the morality or ethical vision to go along with that a more connected world is the world. We are currently fighting right now where Russia is able to interfere in the United States elections. A more connected world is what Dr Ford faced when she spoke out on judge cavenaugh as had to move all these different times. And you know, I really think we have to push pass this idea. That's just nerds have lost their way. And they're just good old people. They're just trying to help the user experience. We've got to think a lot deeper and as an industry, I really mean this as an industry we've got to start holding each other to hire staff. Higher standards on making sure women and people of color and LGBT people are at the table higher standards are making sure the decisions you're making are not going to undermine the country you live in and higher ethical standards about. How information is going to be stored and what your cyber security vulnerabilities. Are we need to be raising our bar, and when to stop giving herself surpass I one hundred percent agree with that..

"I feel like this is such a difficult issue to iron out, and I feel like on a government level is where we're going to have to deal with it because I. I've mentioned before I feel like people who are involved in developing new technologies should probably also be trained in ethics and philosophy. But that doesn't necessarily apply to the situation at all like, the the developers taking ethics classes wouldn't have mattered at all because it's the growth and the interest of the company that are pushing this forward, it's it's the nature of a company to need to grow because of capitalism. So that like the only way to check that I think is on a government level. I completely agree. And, you know, this is where I would I would say this to your earlier point, Jeff because you're right smut is absolutely on on a government level to that end. I just spent a week and a half in Silicon Valley. I talked to a lot of small business owners. One of them was our sponsor on the show smile. And I heard so much like the European privacy laws have gone through. We all agree that we've got to take a step forward on this. But everyone I talked to particularly small business owners were talking about the undue burden. This European law puts on them to the point where a lot of companies I met with last week have been forced to pull out of Europe. So us kind of abandoning this and not being proactive on. These issues has created a situation where it's like you said Europe is leading the world on. This isn't always great for American companies, including Facebook. So I really think the only answer this like a very sympathetic Simone. Would you say engineers needs to take more humanities classes, I strongly agree with that? But the ultimate answer really is going to be regulation. Yeah. Yeah. Because it's not it's much like climate change. We can recycle all we want. But one person is not going to be the the the the change. She agrees. Stemming issue it's not just individual as a side note was one of my issues with lean in because there's a systemic issue with sexism in tech industry, specifically but industries, generally and so venting in can help individual women, but that doesn't solve or else now. I'll know I do really appreciate her because I say lean in constantly. She gave me one of the most long lasting memes of my life. Oh my gosh. So I wanna talk about the other Facebook story, which I think was was this is the one that really blew me away. This was it was a motherboard article correct with. You know, Ryan Mack basically talking about Facebook's trouble with employee retention. So BuzzFeed, guess, your Krylya, mersal and Ryan BuzzFeed chart, Charlie wars. All is an amazing reporter. Yes. So they got access to the basically insider logs at Facebook. And also what's the name of the app or line? Yup. Blind. They've actually pitched topics through the show before they're pretty good company in basically went through there and started looking at what employees were saying. And there's a real war at Facebook for employees to stay there or leave. What this article points out is a lot of the culture where people feel pressured to basically, stay silent. In fact, one employee is saying like, look if you speak out about this company, your your debt in all you can do is kind of smile and go. Along with that being the culture there. It is utterly. Not surprising to me how we ended up in this mess. Like, you know, it's not really funny joke. What you're saying? Jeff about the good news room. Because that's the very problem. Facebook employees are reporting. Yeah. It's I it's very hard. I think you get a small taste of this. No matter what company you're working in. But especially in in media. I think, you know, your your company or somebody related to your company publishes, an article that gets dragged online, and you're like man, how do I contend with working at this place today? Like, the people are people think it's a piece of s company. I all sparring. I swore enough that I am going to have to put a time stamp in there. But, but this is on a whole 'nother level where you know, that your CEO is testifying before congress and millions of people. Are having their call, log, data stolen. I cannot imagine..

"Other accusations included that Vernon Unsworth was kicked off the rescue site at one point and that actually could prove to be completely unsure after talking to some other rescuers say you did some due diligence in terms of the allegations, what have you heard then you? You mentioned that one thing was refuted. What else we did? Yeah, and their minds I, we asked along for evidence of somebody's claims, something back it up. He didn't provide anything, but we still try to do some reporting around these claims that included talking to someone. We found to be very non-swiss partner of seven years lives in time. And this forty year old woman. He owns at the salon. Then she talked to us about her partner Vernon. We also talked to the UK MSE in time. And we talked to tie immigration office. If someone is gonna crime, are they allowed to ISA, that kind of thing. Just basic trying to get basic sacks. So you've got these accusations. You've got some pretty purveying language from Ilan mosque and this Email exchange with you as well. I'm just I'm wondering what went through your head and what you've been thinking since about the the nature of this online conversation. Yeah. I mean, I've, I've done some Tessie emails before from people. I try not to take him personally. I what really Druce to this where where the accusations made against this person who had previously apologize to, and it's person who is now threatening a lawsuit against, and that was the newsworthy that's of the story. You don't often see a billionaire CEO going after the citizens like this and in the fashion, especially in in light of all the issues that SpaceX going to why? Why not focusing on specific issue at hand. Said a few minutes ago that Mr. musk said that these comments that he's making you off the record, but but people may not understand the nature of that kind of agreement between journalists and the subjects. Can you tell us why you still publish the emails? Even though he said that? Sure. In our original back and forth, we were talking. We wanted to create emails that I had with e even not. We publish a statement from him. Everything was on the record. He then unilaterally moves to go off the record and following Email and bear in mind off the record as people that you know anything about journalism know that off the record is to party agreement you on musk kinda said off the record, and there was no agreement to do that. He freely share that information which we felt the usable on our part. How is it possible for a man with his high profile as Alon must not know that. You'd have to ask him? Yeah, it it. It was frankly, my modeling to me as well. We saw over the summer that the the board of one of Mr. mouth companies stepped in when they were unhappy with some of what he was saying. Some of those around him have said they are worried about Ilan musk. Do you see reason that they should be? I, I've only read the statements. I mean, I've read that a lot of board members are worried about his Twitter have it then again, I mean, that's what made you LAN must so interesting. So relatable to a lot of people, the fact that he's able to reach out and communicate directly to people, there's no filter. So that's more or less the way he's always been. I'll Ryan Mack. Thank you very much for.
