Facebook says it has suspended 70 Facebook accounts, 138 Facebook pages, and 65 Instagram accounts controlled by the Internet Research Agency. Chief security officer Alex Stamos announced the news today, posting a handful of sample ads and pages that it says were run by the Russia-linked disinformation outfit. “The IRA has consistently used inauthentic accounts to deceive and manipulate people,” writes Stamos. “It’s why we remove every account we find that is linked to the organization — whether linked to activity in the US, Russia or elsewhere.” Facebook has also removed any ads linked to these accounts.

According to Stamos, finding the pages took “months of work” by Facebook. Around 95 percent of the pages with language-specific…

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.

Back in October, YouTube began testing autoplaying videos on its Android app’s home page. Fast forward to today and the feature still doesn’t work on my devices, even though I have the option in settings, but it’s working just fine for Artem. In fact, the Google gods even bestowed a new test upon him: subtitles in the aforementioned autoplaying videos.

It seems like Artem’s been watching a lot of The Office lately.
