Facebook has a program called Centra, which tracks the pages people visit, the links, and not just in Facebook, but across the entire internet. (Tucker Carlson wonders, if it’s even legal). Mark Zuckerberg says he’s not familiar with it. Hawley grilled Zuckerberg. When pressed to say whether there is some program that can do that, Zuckerberg evades answering. Apparently, Centra is run in order to spot “coordinated inauthentic behaviour” (aka astroturfing).
The second program is called Tasks. Twitter, Google and Facebook use it to coordinate their censorship. That way they can exile people together. Handy, eh?
Zuckerberg said they are just checking in with their peers. Josh Hawley got Zuckerberg to admit under oath that Facebook does have tools to track users, across platforms and accounts, all without their knowledge.
Josh Hawley tweets:
Ever wonder how a user banned or locked on one platform often gets quickly banned or locked on the others? This is how.
Zuckerberg refused to answer whether Facebook ever uses Centra to track and monitor American citizens.
Whistleblower says Twitter and Google routinely suggest censorship topics — hashtags, individuals, websites, many of them conservative — and Facebook logs them for follow-up on Tasks. But Zuck REFUSES under oath to turn over list of Twitter or Google mentions on Tasks.
