Default Facebook Knew About Russian Hacking in Early 2016-New York Times

Quote:
Sheryl Sandberg was seething.

Inside Facebook’s Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters, top executives gathered in the glass-walled conference room of its founder, Mark Zuckerberg. It was September 2017, more than a year after Facebook engineers discovered suspicious Russia-linked activity on its site, an early warning of the Kremlin campaign to disrupt the 2016 American election. Congressional and federal investigators were closing in on evidence that would implicate the company.

But it wasn’t the looming disaster at Facebook that angered Ms. Sandberg. It was the social network’s security chief, Alex Stamos, who had informed company board members the day before that Facebook had yet to contain the Russian infestation. Mr. Stamos’s briefing had prompted a humiliating boardroom interrogation of Ms. Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, and her billionaire boss. She appeared to regard the admission as a betrayal.

“You threw us under the bus!” she yelled at Mr. Stamos, according to people who were present.

The clash that day would set off a reckoning — for Mr. Zuckerberg, for Ms. Sandberg and for the business they had built together. In just over a decade, Facebook has connected more than 2.2 billion people, a global nation unto itself that reshaped political campaigns, the advertising business and daily life around the world. Along the way, Facebook accumulated one of the largest-ever repositories of personal data, a treasure trove of photos, messages and likes that propelled the company into the Fortune 500.



Quote:
While Mr. Zuckerberg has conducted a public apology tour in the last year, Ms. Sandberg has overseen an aggressive lobbying campaign to combat Facebook’s critics, shift public anger toward rival companies and ward off damaging regulation. Facebook employed a Republican opposition-research firm to discredit activist protesters, in part by linking them to the liberal financier George Soros. It also tapped its business relationships, lobbying a Jewish civil rights group to cast some criticism of the company as anti-Semitic.

I didn't follow this thing very closely. I remember Russia hacked the DNC's emails that exposed how Hillary and the DNC colluded to torpedo Bernie.

And I remember that Russia bought a bunch of political ads on Facebook.

And I remember people's credit info was hacked on Equifax.


But what did the Russia hack of Facebook entail? What was hacked? What was the purpose, or what did it achieve?

But with regards to "Russian Hacking" mentioned in OP's title. I'm unclear on what they hacked?

Geeze we're still having trouble taking accountability and responsibility for putting a terrible, establishment, warmongering politican as the democrat candidate. Sad. Nobody liked her dude. Didn't take a russian ad to convince anybody of that.

Am I understanding this correctly that Facebook itself tried to push division in order to deflect from their role in the Russian ads?

Can someone explain how Russia hacked Facebook?


Is OP’s title a shameless lie, or is there a source for his claim?

The main point of the article was Facebooks' response to the hacking. The how? Only Mueller knows at this point.

The Russians are veterans in this info war game. I made the connection to Russia when it comes to the alternative media and conspiracy theories like 15 years ago.

Where does it say anywhere that Facebook was HACKED by Russia? Do you have a source for that or are you just making it up?

Im not saying it didnt happen, bc I dont follow this type of stuff very closely. Ive heard about the various hacks elsewhere, and Russia buying ads on fb.

Where does it say anywhere that Russia HACKED fb? That’s all Im asking.

don't think there was ever a claim the ruskis hacked facebook, just that they used fake accounts to purchase ad space for their disinformation campaign there.
