Instagram groomer and former AFP employee avoids jail after being found guilty of messaging 11-years-old

A former Australian Federal Police (AFP) worker who sent his partner’s 11-year-old daughter Instagram messages saying he needed to “see her nude body” has avoided jail.

The man sent messages to 11yo girl, together with phrases like “I want to see your nude body” the previous AFP worker denied writing the messages at trial, saying he might have been hacked judge says the person is an “exception” to general practice that child groomers be sent to jail.

The man was found guilty by an ACT Supreme Court jury earlier this year of grooming the girl.

During the trial his lawyer told the jury most of the messages exchanged between the person and the girl over a number of months were “innocent”, suggesting someone else had sent the messages.
After being confronted by the girl’s mother, he advised he had been hacked, and told the mother to change her password, as she might have been hacked too.

Facebook additionally employed human contractors to listen to audio from its messenger app

Facebook has been hiring third-party contractors to review and transcribe audio clips of its users, consistent with a new report from Bloomberg Facebook claims it stopped using human staff to review audio clips “more than a week ago,” noting that the contractors were antecedently employed to examine whether anonymized conversations were being properly transcribed on the messenger app.

Since 2015, messenger has offered a feature to transcribe voice clips to text, though it’s turned off by default. Facebook claims solely those who opted in to the feature had their audio clips reviewed by third-party contractors. However, consistent with its support page, if even one person in your chat has consented to Facebook transcribing the conversation, any audio within the thread would have been translated, no matter who sent it.

The findings are notably troubling given that nowhere in Facebook’s support page or terms of service does it indicate that humans would be reviewing the audio. “Voice to Text uses machine learning. The more you use this feature, the more Voice to Text can assist you,” the support page reads.

Facebook’s cryptocurrency may work like loyalty points.

On Thursday, The Wall Street Journal reported new potential details regarding Facebook’s long-awaited cryptocurrency plans. The corporate is reportedly seeking dozens of business partners, including online merchants and financial companies, in an attempt to increase the reach of its blockchain-based marketplace.

Facebook’s would-be partners are being asked to pitch into an investment fund, valued at $1 billion or more, that would serve as backing for Facebook’s coin and mitigate the wild speculative swings that make cryptocurrencies like bitcoin hard to spend. The pitch, in line with the Journal, involves offering merchants lower fees than credit cards.
Some were fast to note that this would reduce Facebook’s ability to make money from payments in the short term. However that may not matter much—if, in the end, Facebook’s crypto effort is really all regarding getting you to spend more time glued to Facebook.

Facebook seems to be already building out the plumbing to make its marketplace a reality. At its F8 developer conference this week, the word “blockchain” was notably absent. However even as Zuckerberg emphasized the company’s plan to reorganize your Facebook experience around intimate relationships, his update included plenty of ways in which money would be involved.
