If someone posts something that breaks your instance's rules, you can report them to your instance admin. The admin will then decide what action to take, such as a warning or a ban.

Click on the "..." underneath the message you want to report, select "Report", make sure at least one message is selected and click "Submit".

If they are from another instance, there's also an option to report the person to their own instance admin too, who can delete the account.

When I asked Zuckerberg at a Q&A why his corporate PAC favors Republicans, he couldn't answer. Three years of tracking FBPAC taught me that there was no good answer.

When I presented my arguments for why and how to break up Facebook, company leadership ghosted the thread and did not respond at all. They have no good answers.

If you are on Fedi you already know that Facebook is a problem. Have a read and talk to your representatives about fixing it:

@Science

Science is peer review, science is transparency and giving people the opportunity to expose any biases you might have had , or errors you may have made. Science is about enabling people to call your assertions into doubt, to **encourage** people to call your assertions into doubt.

So if you get mad at people for questing the science, or your opinion and conclusions based on science, and yell at them to "follow the science"... guess what, YOU are the one who isnt following the science. Unless you welcome and encourage, and even seek out people who disagree with your conclusions, you aren't doing science, you are doing propaganda.

Amazon Workers in Alabama have officially filed with the National Labor Relations Board to hold a unionization vote.

This is huge news because these kinds of things typically only get filed after the union advocates determine that there is overwhelming support in that workplace. There are 1500 staff in this warehouse. Alabama is one of the most anti-union states in the country.

Absolute support for these workers.

📜 TLDR: Extreme Summarization of Scientific Documents

We introduce TLDR generation, a new form of extreme summarization, for scientific papers. TLDR generation involves high source compression and requires expert background knowledge and understanding of complex domain-specific language. To facilitate study on this task, we introduce SciTLDR, a new multi-target dataset of 5.4K TLDRs over 3.2K papers. …

any "cyborg manifesto" for the 2020s should acknowledge that capitalism exists, disability exists, transness exists, and that we perversely yet inextricably rely on the technology of modern-day capitalism to provide for our base needs - then figure out how to overthrow that structure while maintaining ourselves and our communities.

«So the team trained a machine-learning algorithm to predict posts that users would consider “bad for the world” and demote them in news feeds.

“The results were good except that it led to a decrease in sessions, which motivated us to try a different approach,” according to a summary of the results, which was posted to Facebook’s internal network and reviewed by The Times.»

Facebook: We know we're bad for the world.
