It appears this is data scraped from Facebook before Facebook restricted access to user's phone numbers in April 2018. It's unknown who owned the server but after TechCrunch contacted the web host the database were removed. It's not known if anyone else besides the security researcher or the server's owner accessed the information.||https://techcrunch.com/2019/09/04/facebook-phone-numbers-exposed/|

|:33||jry||Facebook expanded its dating service to the US Thursday and added the ability to integrate Instagram images into a dating profile, though not your Instagram handle. The US is the 20th market to get Facebook dating. As a refresher here's how Facebook Dating works. By default Facebook Dating does not include your friends and you can choose to exclude friends of friends. You can also block any profile from ever seeing your dating profile come up. However if you'd like to connect with a friend over Facebook Dating you can list them as one of up to nine secret crushes. If they also list you as a secret crush, you'll both be notified. If you choose you can enable the ability to be connected with prospective dates who are attending the same events as you or who have joined the same groups as you. Facebook will recommend prospective dates based other factors like “your preferences, interests, and other things you do on Facebook.” And chats are limited to text and GIFs. Facebook Dating is expected to launch in Europe in 2020.||https://techcrunch.com/2019/09/05/facebook-dating-launches-in-the-u-s-adds-instagram-integration/|

Samsung also announced “Galaxy Fold Premier Service” that gives you access to free tech support at any time. Tom Warren at The Verge reports what's changed in the fixed version of the Fold. First the protective film extends under the bezels so it won't tempt you to peel it off. The hinge gaps are smaller and there are added layers of metal underneath the display. People report it feeling sturdier now. The display now has small plastic protection caps at the top and bottom to help keep debris out. The only software change Warren notes is the ability to align the Android nav bar on the left right or center.||https://www.theverge.com/2019/9/4/20756660/samsung-galaxy-fold-release-date-september-2019-unpacked-event|
|:40||tm||Google released an open source version of its differential privacy library. Differential privacy mixes user data with noise so that the results of data analysis can't be used to identify a person or source int he underlying dataset. Apple uses differential privacy to draw insights from iPhone users while protecting anonymity. Google uses its own differential privacy tool in Chrome. Differential Privacy from Google available on Github will let organization conduct more data analysis cheaply without risking user privacy.||https://www.theverge.com/2019/9/5/20850465/google-differential-privacy-open-source-tool-privacy-data-sharing|
|:44||jry||Facebook has asked its AI researchers to produce fake videos featuring actors doing and saying routine things. The dates containing the clips will be released at an AI conference at the end of the year to help test and benchmark deep fake detection tools. Facebook will dedicate $10 million to fund detection technology through grants and prizes. It is partnering with Microsoft, Partnership on AI, MIT, UC Berkeley and Oxford to launch a deep fake challenge to reward the best detection methods.||https://www.technologyreview.com/s/614269/facebook-is-making-ai-deepfakes-to-head-off-a-disinformation-disaster/|

I was thinking about your speculation on why FB doesn't want feds to have fake accounts to research visa applications and why the feds want a fake one instead of using their real names.
Think of all the stuff an investigator will need to click on in reviewing an account. And then imagine all the crazy ads that they will start seeing in their feed and how they will be personally profiled to advertisers and data providers. They might start to look like terrorists, just for doing their jobs.
|Hi Tom and Sarah-|
Your discussion with Scott re: why would DHS want to use fake accounts? irked me quite a bit. Less what anyone was saying, but Facebook's policy forbidding a professional account.
Some background: the vast majority of visas are issued by the State Department, not DHS. DHS's main role is adjudicating petitions for immigrant and working visas. To prevent fraud they may look at social media and detect things like fake marriages, criminal or terrorist affiliation, or out and out identity theft. If they revoke the petition, DHS can be sued and may have to provide screen caps or evidence from their own social media accounts to justify the revocation.
This could open up the officer to harassment and threats, as well as expose their friends and family to the attention of unsavory characters who DHS is trying to keep out.
Having a professional versus a personal account is common and I consider a best practice. Why Facebook would want to expose DHS officers and their families to bad guys refused visas is beyond me. It will likely lead DHS employees to limit the use of Facebook and other social media to mitigate this exact problem.
Anyhow, just a little background on how and why immigration officers might use social media and want separate accounts.
