    Facebook confirms it's building an internet satellite

    It looks like Facebook is indeed building an internet satellite.  The social network is working on a new satellite project that will provide broadband internet connections to "unserved and underserved areas," according to FCC documents uncovered by Wired. SEE ALSO: The call to break up Facebook's 'monopoly' is getting louder The documents, produced by a Freedom of Information Act request, detail several email exchanges between FCC officials and Facebook representatives from 2016 and 2018. In the 2018 messages, Facebook reps refer to a "small satellite experimental application for the Athena satellite." Earlier this year, rumors began swirling that the company was working on another satellite project. IEEE uncovered FCC filings referring to the Athena satellite, which appeared to point back to Facebook. Now we know for certain that Facebook is behind it, as the company confirmed the Athena project to Wired, though it didn't elaborate on specific plans for the satellite. Facebook has dabbled in satellite technology before. The social network was supposed to launch an internet-beaming satellite for parts of Africa in 2016, but lost it when SpaceX's rocket exploded during a test.  The social network has made big investments in bringing internet connectivity to places where people don't have access to broadband connections. The company previously tested an internet-beaming drone called Acquila, a project that was killed earlier this year. Besides enabling Facebook's self-proclaimed mission to "connect the world," bringing remote parts of the globe online is a strategic part of Facebook's business. With more than 2 billion users, the company will have to find inventive ways to reach new audiences if it wants to keep growing.  WATCH: Controllable Computer for Kids Gains Traction on Kickstarter

    [$$] Facebook Suspends Analytics Firm on Concerns About Sharing of Public User-Data

    Facebook Inc. suspended another company that harvested data from its site and said it was investigating whether the analytics firm’s contracts with the U.S. government and a Russian nonprofit tied to the Kremlin violate the platform’s policies. Crimson Hexagon, based in Boston, has had contracts in recent years to analyze public Facebook data for those and other clients, according to people familiar with the matter and federal procurement data. Crimson Hexagon says it has the largest repository of public social media posts, totaling more than one trillion, from sites that also include Twitter Inc. and Instagram.

    Facebook suspends yet another analytics company

    Stop me if you've heard this one before: Facebook allows a third-party analytics company access to user data, conducts poor oversight of said company, and then is caught flat-footed when asked about the situation by a journalist.  Yeah, it's happened again. And no, you're not crazy for getting that Cambridge Analytica déjà vu. Facebook was forced to suspend Boston-based Crimson Hexagon today after the Wall Street Journal reported on the company's contracts with a Kremlin-tied Russian nonprofit and the U.S. government.  SEE ALSO: Real headlines from InfoWars, a site that's not banned from Facebook Crimson Hexagon, which bills itself as having "instant access to the world’s largest volume of unstructured text and images across social, online public, and enterprise-held data sources," apparently gathered and analyzed public Facebook data on behalf of clients.  At issue for Facebook, reports the Journal , is whether or not Crimson Hexagon's government contracts are in violation of Facebook policy. Apparently the Facebook execs hadn't thought too much about it until reporters asked.  “Facebook has a responsibility to help protect people’s information," Facebook vice president for product partnerships Ime Archibong told the Journal , "which is one of the reasons why we have tightened” access to user data.  Over at Crimson Hexagon, meanwhile, chief technology officer Chris Bingham insisted in a statement to the Journal that his company wasn't doing anything untoward and that it was looking to regain its access to public Facebook data shortly.  Lean into it.Image: LLUIS GENE/gettyCrimson Hexagon, of course, is not the first company to get in hot water for its use of Facebook user data. Unlike Cambridge Analytica, however, this potential abuse doesn't involve a potentially shady researcher selling data. Rather, it was Crimson Hexagon taking public data from Facebook in a way that — as far as we can tell now — Facebook was designed to facilitate.  In other words, Facebook was OK with what Crimson Hexagon was grabbing, just potentially not who it was sharing it with.  Maybe Facebook should have paid a little more attention to those share settings.  Regardless, just like in the case of Cambridge Analytica, no matter what Facebook does now, the cat's already out of the bag. There's no clawing back user data that's long since been spread around the digital universe — perhaps something to keep in mind the next time you consider hitting that "Post" button.  WATCH: Watch Zuckerberg’s face freeze after a far-right politician credited Facebook for Trump's win and Brexit

    Facebook Suspends Another Data Analytics Firm After Hitting Another Stock High

    In what is becoming a familiar pattern, shares of Facebook (FB) hit a new high the same day it suspended another data analytics firm for how it handled the personal data of Facebook's 2.2 billion users.

Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target to $250 from $210, a 19% premium from its current price.

    [$$] WhatsApp to Limit Message Forwarding After Rumor-Led Violence in India

    NEW DELHI—Facebook Inc.’s WhatsApp messaging service is making it harder for users world-wide to forward content, after the spread of rumors on the app led to mob violence and the killing of more than 20 people in India.

WhatsApp’s announcement Thursday came a day after Facebook under a new policy said it would begin removing misinformation that could spark violence.
