NZ investors act on terror attack

Facebook’s pathetic excuse on the Christchurch terror video

Facebook has rejected the idea of putting a time delay on live videos to stop horrific acts like the New Zealand mosque shootings being broadcast to its billions of users.

After the shooter streamed the attack, "individuals around the world then re-shared copies they got through many different apps and services, for example filming the broadcasts on TV, capturing videos from websites, filming computer screens with their phones, or just re-sharing a clip they received", Rosen wrote.

"This particular video did not trigger our automatic detection systems", Rosen wrote. "Distribution was further propelled by broad reporting of the existence of a video, which may have prompted people to seek it out and to then share it further with their friends". The video was later viewed 4,000 times before Facebook took it down.

When a video is reported while it's broadcasting, it's "prioritized for accelerated review", Facebook explained.

Accident Compensation Corporation, Government Superannuation Fund Authority, National Provident Fund, and Kiwi Wealth issued a statement calling for social media giants such as Twitter and Facebook, and even search engine Google to take action on responsibility of what is published on their platforms. That success has led users to question why it was harder to crack down on the Christchurch shooting video.

"We are in the process of contacting other New Zealand and leading global investors, seeking their support for this initiative", Whineray said.

The only other free agent he added to the roster was former Carolina receiver Devin Funchess. "That's over and done with. His 22 sacks that season are still tied for the second-highest single-season total in league history.

"An independent board chair is essential to moving Facebook forward from this mess, and to re-establish trust with Americans and investors alike", said New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer speaking previous year during the Facebook data breach.

The first user reports of New Zealand attack video, which came after the livestream ended, labeled it as something "other than suicide" and as such "it was handled according to different procedures".

Facebook spokesperson Simon Dilner said it could have done better and it was prepared for regulatory action. One user copied and posted the video to "8chan", the online message board frequented by altra-right trolls, involuntary celibates and the alleged attacker himself.

"There are millions of Live broadcasts daily, which means a delay would not help address the problem due to the sheer number of videos".

Rosen said another challenge is in getting artificial intelligence to tell the difference between this and "visually similar, innocuous content", such as live-streamed video games.
