Facebook announces a camera for your house. What could possibly go wrong?
Facebook announced their new Portal smart video calling device, complete with Alexa built-in, to help reinvent video chatting… but with their privacy track record, is this something you want? I realize now is the time for product announcements but...doing so hot off the news of a massive user-data breach seems like odd timing.

The Portal comes in two configurations: a $200 model with a 10.1-inch 720p display, and the pricier $350 Portal+, which features a larger 15.6-inch 1080p display that can rotate between portrait and landscape view. The more expensive version also sports an extra subwoofer that should result in better bass, but aside from that, both share similar specs including quad mics and a front-facing, 12-MP camera with an 8x zoom.

Facebook hack gets worse - hack allowed access to anything that used the Facebook login
So for sure Instagram (Facebook-owned) but also major sites that use your Facebook ID to authenticate like Tinder, Airbnb, or Spotify.

That means that once a hacker had access to a person's Facebook account, they could make their way through the rest of their digital life if it had been connected via Facebook. I've said it a million times... never use Facebook to log into anything.

Undercover footage exposes the seriously disturbing way Facebook moderates content
A company that moderates content for Facebook is the focus of a new undercover Channel 4 documentary.

Footage for Channel 4's latest Dispatches episode Inside Facebook: Secrets of the Social Network was gathered by an undercover reporter who went to work at CPL Resources in Dublin, Ireland — a facility that's worked with the social media giant for the past eight years. A video of a toddler being physically abused and a racist meme are just two examples of content that moderators chose not to take down from the site.
