Articles I wrote about FEDBOOK in 2012
Articles about Facebook’s lack of oversight on their policies and the child porn and such:
These are articles I wrote in 2012 detailing what fedbook is and why I now call it FEDBOOK they are not what they say they are. They are a spygrid, run by most of the federal collective agencies, like the FBI, NSA, CIA, DARPA, and IARPA. to collect information and spy on you.
I found this on a back up hard drive and it says a lot about what is and was going on. Frederic Wolens was the man I spoke to on the phone as well as having spoke to the FBI about it and being ordered off the investigation by the FBI. Frederic Wolens no longer works for FEDBOOK.
Facebooks response to CP being on their site (hold onto your hat, it’s a doozy)

Thanks so much for reaching out, and I’ll be happy to help with your inquiry. May I ask, what group specifically are asking about?
It is absolutely not our policy to actions on an account for the volume or nature of their reports. And, you can find out more about the way we respond to these reports here – https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-safety/meet-the-safety-team/248332788520844. It would be great if we could speak more about these cases, as these users are often violating our terms in other ways which leads to their accounts being suspended, however, I can’t comment without more specifics.
I’m slightly surprised by the charges of this group, considering the support we have received in the past from various state attorney generals (http://gadgetwise.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/05/19/facebook-to-combat-child-porn-using-microsofts-technology/) and if you would like, I can put you in touch with representatives from NCMEC who can speak to Facebook’s responsiveness. NCMEC is the national agency that responds to reports of child pornography. I have provided some additional background below, and I’m happy to provide more once we have a better understanding of the story.
Facebook Policy Communications
Nothing is more important to Facebook than the safety of the people that use our site and this material has absolutely no place on Facebook. We have zero tolerance for child pornography being uploaded onto Facebook and are extremely aggressive in preventing and removing child exploitive content. We scan every photo that is uploaded to the site using PhotoDNA to ensure that this illicit material can’t be distributed and we report all instances of exploitative content to NCMEC. We’ve built complex technical systems that either block the creation of this content, including in private groups, or flag it for quick review by our team of investigations professionals.
Additionally, we maintain a robust reporting infrastructure that leverages the over billion people who use our site to keep an eye out for offensive or potentially dangerous content. This reporting infrastructure includes report links on pages across the Facebook site, systems to prioritize the most serious reports, and a trained team of analysts who respond to reports and escalate them to law enforcement as needed. This team treats reports of exploitative content as an utmost priority.
We’ve worked with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo in the US, as well as the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre in the UK, to use known databases of child exploitive material to improve our detection and bring those responsible to justice.
We’re constantly refining and improving our systems and processes. However, we feel we’ve created a much safer environment on Facebook than exists off-line, where people can share this material in the privacy of their own homes without anyone watching.
• PhotoDNA that scans every single one of the nearly billion images that are uploaded to our site daily. These images are compared against our own internal hash list as well as NCMEC’s hash list to ensure no known child exploitative images are uploaded to the site. Once an image is verified as exploitative we will not only immediately escalate the account to the appropriate law enforcement personnel and NCEMEC, but also investigate the account for evidence of further wrongdoing. We have worked with state, local, and federal law enforcement to proactively pursue cases against bad actors who attempt to use our site for these detestable ends. Attorney Generals Kroeger, Madigan, and Harris have all spoken in support of Facebook’s use of PhotoDNA
• Report system of our over 800 million users who help monitor for abusive behavior and objects. We leverage this system to prioritize all reports relating to harassment or exploitative content, especially when pertaining to minors, and investigate all associated accounts as appropriate.
• We maintain a strong relationship with the Department of Justice, National Center for Missing Children, Interpol, the FBI, and numerous other state, local, federal and international law enforcement organizations and departments. We work with these LE contacts to help proactively pursue CP cases and help us investigate malfeasance.
• We have worked with others in the industry notably Google and Microsoft to improve our technologies and share best practices to help us investigate and surface exploitative content. We have participated extensively in several industry wide groups including the DNA Foundation and the Technology Coalition under the guidance of NCMEC. Additionally, we have worked with other non-profits in this space including Stop Child Trafficking Now and the Polaris Project to supplement our efforts and cast an even wider net for our safety efforts.
• We work closely with NCMEC, Interpol and other international law enforcement department to maintain an up-to-date list of keywords and terms commonly used by bad actors involved in these crimes to help us better surface and disrupt the spread of exploitative material.
Q: What do we do if CP is found on the site?
A : All accounts that have been disabled, removed from the site, or detected as being involved in CP activity are preserved to the fullest possible extent to aid in any subsequent law enforcement investigation. Furthermore, Facebook will often proactively surface these cases with domestic and international law enforcement to help aid in the arrest, apprehension and conviction of these perpetrators. As mentioned previously, once an account is suspected of being involved in illicit activity we will investigate associated objects (groups, Pages, and images etc.) and associates.
Facebook will become the first service to use Microsoft’s PhotoDNA, a new technology that can quickly comb through millions of photos to identify illegal images.
They admit they keep the profiles and zip files that you can’t have, and not just for CP but for everyone, and they will use them against you and you can’t have your own zipfile unless you download it if they let you. I am still going after them and fighting them. They have two of my zipfiles I can’t have and will never get. and they to date are holding my current accounts zipfile that they won’t let me download.
