Facebook Frolics 3

Crackdown. From The Guardian:

Facebook is to crack down on ads running next to offensive material by launching a new system that will create a blacklist of pages and groups that contain any violent, graphic or sexual content, even if it previously passed its community standards.

The surprising take-away about this is that Facebook has “community standards.”

    Ha-ha. You can tell Sean Parker still has a drug problem, even with a staff to write it for him. Heh, the guy who helped “invent” Napster talking about the “democratization” of publishing. 9.5 k words, though. I was in Big Sur a couple times, always liked it. Wonder if he ate at Nepenthe?
    Probably not. Wasn’t posh enough for the uber-toffs.
