Facebook takes search warrant challenge to top court

Facebook is heading to New York state's highest court to challenge search warrants seeking information from user accounts. Facebook challenged the warrants but lower courts sided with prosecutors, ruling it was up to individual users to challenge the warrants seeking their information. The social media site provided the information but continues to argue that it has the right to challenge warrants for information it possesses about its users. The case has been closely watched by social media companies, civil libertarians and prosecutors. Prosecutors in Manhattan sought search warrants in 2013 for the accounts of 381 individuals in connection with a disability benefits fraud case against New York City police and fire retirees.

Facebook to challenge search warrants for personal data of 9
"Moreover, we believe search warrants for digital information should be specific and narrow in scope, just like warrants for physical evidence." During its fight against the warrants, Facebook was told by a lower court that, as an online service provider, it could not legally contest the warrants. Facebook has appealed the case all the way to the New York Court of Appeals, the state's highest court. Facebook has claimed it has a right to legally challenge search warrants that are issued for its users' data, while New York courts have, thus far, said that the company does not have such a right. The DA's office has said the responders' Facebook accounts show proof of fraud.

The web app hosted on bizdatagate.com mines Facebook's business profiles and presents data related to specified keywords. Keo Kounila, a public policy expert who also runs her own digital marketing business, said the "innovative" tool would benefit the digital marketing field in Cambodia. A tech startup has taken advantage of the rise of Cambodia's e-commerce industry and launched a new search engine for business information posted on Facebook. But Chris McCarthy, CEO of marketing research firm Mango Tango, said that while useful, it might struggle to compete without more local customizations. "It is useful for businesses to know more about their competitors' campaigns, as well as students to do research work related to business," he said.

ADVERTISEMENTFacebook's image search system can detect and segment objects, scenes, animals, places, and clothes that appear in images or videos – and understand them. Called Lumos, Facebook originally created the platform so that its visually impaired users could understand the content of photos. But Facebook recognized that everyone could benefit from this type of visual search system. "We've built a search system that leverages image understanding to sort through this vast amount of information and surface the most relevant photos quickly and easily," according to a Facebook blog post published today.

The Facebook Search For Deeper, Longer Meaning 01

There's a time and a place for longer video, and pretty much, so far, that place has been called Netflix. More surprising (to me, the easily surprised one), was that 30% of that viewing was for video that was 20 minutes or longer. It doesn't seem much of a stretch to suppose that Facebook is branching out to become a content supplier and an almost-traditional ad carrier. If you recall, Facebook also announced recently that it will be experimenting with a type of mid-roll ad that would play 20 seconds into a video. Online video from the beginning has been short and sweet and usually cheap and, however you want to put this, not deep.

But today's news shows general Facebook users have a lot to benefit from the feature as well. Facebook vows aggressive investment as earnings surgeWith this tool, for instance, you can recognise what's in an image, what type of scene it is, if it's a well-known landmark, and so on. For Facebook, this automation will make it easier to identify inappropriate content and spam. Asia is now Facebook's biggest regionBuilt on top of that, Facebook is using Lumos, a specialised platform for image and video understanding which can help identify features in images and video automatically. These tools were originally envisioned to help the visually impaired navigate the service, discerning what's in a photo just by scanning it.
