Facebook has admitted the company has been secretly deleting messages sent on Messenger by founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “After Sony Pictures’ emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives’ communications,” says a Facebook spokesperson in a statement to TechCrunch. “These included limiting the retention period for Mark’s messages in Messenger. We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages.”

Old Facebook messages sent by Zuckerberg have simply vanished in some existing threads, and TechCrunch reports that affected messages no longer appear in Facebook’s download your information tool. Recent messages from Zuckerberg reportedly remain in some users’ inboxes, and the…

Facebook admits it deleted messages Mark Zuckerberg sent, for ‘corporate security’

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


TechCrunch reports that Facebook wiped messages that CEO Mark Zuckerberg sent to former employees, as well as people outside the company, from those recipients’ inboxes. The company cited ‘corporate security’ as its reasoning for the move, but it’s never publicly disclosed that it cleared Zuckerberg’s messages out of those conversations. In a statement which mentions the Sony Pictures hack that saw the film production company’s unreleased movies and confidential documents exposed, it explained: After Sony Pictures’ emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives’ communications. These included limiting the retention period for Mark’s…

Elon Musk, Customer Service Rep Extraordinaire, Just Deleted the Facebook Pages for SpaceX and Tesla, on Request (Seriously)

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Updated 3/23 at 1:38 PM

Elon Musk just took a stand—a substantial one that’s a giant shot across the bow of Facebook, and a statement Musk’s rabid base of acolytes may or may not take a cue from: In light of the data-gathering scandal that has rocked Facebook over the past week, Musk just dropped the hammer, and deleted the official pages for Tesla and SpaceX from the Book of Face.

It started when Musk played around on Twitter, randomly responding to Signal founder Brian Acton’s Tweet about deleting Facebook:

Someone called Musk out for making light of the situation.

And Musk, as he’s wont to do, (A) trolled Facebook, (B) called this random Twitter user’s bluff, and (C) wiped Space X and Tesla from Facebook:

Indeed, Musk seems to have lived up to his promise. Searching for Tesla on Facebook now reveals just lame stuff about the scientist:

And a search for SpaceX reveals a number of pages, though none seems to be official:

Contrition from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t seem to be enough to regain Musk’s trust (to say nothing of a previous beef they once had in which Zuck once blamed Musk for ruining some of his property).

As usual, Musk wins:

If you’re fearing where you’ll get your next Elon fix, check his Twitter and Instagram.

Clearly, Musk won’t be wiping himself from the web any time soon. Those accounts are never not going.

Elon Musk just deleted Tesla’s and SpaceX’s Facebook pages in response to #DeleteFacebook

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

“Looks lame anyway,” Musk tweeted.

Oh, Elon.

Earlier this week, WhatsApp co-founder and former Facebook employee Brian Acton went to Twitter to encourage people to #DeleteFacebook in light of the company’s recent privacy scandal with Cambridge Analytica.

Turns out Elon Musk, the eccentric CEO of both SpaceX and Tesla, thought it was a great idea.

After tweeting back to Acton asking, “What’s Facebook?” someone suggested Musk delete SpaceX’s corporate Facebook page.

“I didn’t realize there was one. Will do,” he replied.

Then someone suggested he also delete Tesla’s corporate Facebook page.

“Definitely. Looks lame anyway,” Musk replied.

And that was that. Both pages appear to have been deleted. SpaceX’s page had more than 2.7 million followers.

It’s possible Musk is just playing around and the pages will be restored — and I’m sure Facebook and the social media employees at SpaceX and Tesla hope that’s the case. SpaceX utilized its Facebook page to show rocket launches on Facebook Live.

But that’s not really Musk’s style. When Sonos announced on Friday that it would suspend advertising on Facebook for a week, Musk replied, “Wow, a whole week. Risky …”

There might be something deeper to this Musk vs. Facebook situation. If you’ll recall, Musk and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had a little beef last year when Zuckerberg suggested that people who created doomsday scenarios about artificial intelligence were irresponsible. Musk has said often that he thinks AI could ultimately lead to the end of civilization as we know it.

“I’ve talked to Mark about this. His understanding of the subject is limited,” Musk said in response to Zuckerberg’s comments. Well okay then!

To add to the tension between the two CEOs, when a SpaceX rocket accidentally exploded during a 2016 launch, it was carrying a Facebook satellite. “I’m deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX’s launch failure destroyed our satellite,” Zuckerberg said at the time.

Musk deleting his company Facebook pages is certainly funny. But if they stay deleted, and others see how easy it is for a major corporation to cut Facebook out of its life, maybe others will follow along. And that would be bad news for Zuckerberg.

WhatsApp messages can now be deleted an hour after you sent them by mistake

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

WhatsApp

WhatsApp has quietly changed the way its message deletion feature works. Originally introduced in October, the WhatsApp “delete for everyone” used to only allow you to delete messages up to seven minutes after you sent them. WABetaInfo has noticed that the latest version of WhatsApp extends that time limit significantly to one hour, eight minutes, and 16 seconds.

It’s not clear why the limit is now so specific, apart from being 2^12, and the WhatsApp support pages don’t provide any additional info on the time limit. An hour means you now have far longer to delete messages sent by mistake, or can wipe out entire conversations from a friend’s phone. WhatsApp doesn’t have a secret conversations option like rivals where it creates a…

Phasma’s deleted scene from Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the version fans deserved

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Spoilers ahead for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

One of the biggest complaints about J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens was how it hyped up the presence of a chrome-plated stormtrooper, Captain Phasma (played by Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie), whose actual appearance in the film turned out to be underwhelming. Fans hoped for a bit of redemption for the character in December’s The Last Jedi, but she only turned up for a brief appearance and a quick death at the hands of her former soldier, Finn. The latest episode of The Star Wars Show premiered a deleted scene in the run-up to the upcoming home release for the film, one that shows a different ending for the character, which fits far better with the novels and comics that built up…
