While the “#10YearChallenge” spreading across social media may appear to be the latest innocuous viral phenomenon, sweeping upwards of 5 million users and multiple celebrities into the challenge, privacy experts and technology analysts are sounding the alarm about the #socialengineering motives behind the trend.

According to the theory, the meme – which calls for Facebook and Instagram (which is owned by Facebook) users to upload a photo of themselves a decade ago alongside their latest photo – was deliberately crafted by Facebook as a means to harvest photos for the sake of improving the social media giant’s facial recognition software and AI machine-learning capabilities, or for Facebook to sell in batches to third-party companies.

The first writer to lay out the theory in detail was Wired Magazine writer Kate O’Neill, whose sarcastic tweet questioning “how all this data could be mined to train #facialrecognition algorithms on age progression and age recognition” spread like wildfire after it was posted over the weekend.

In a subsequent opinion piece for Wired, O’Neill argued: “Thanks to this meme, there’s now a very large dataset of carefully curated photos of people from roughly 10 years ago and now. … But even if this particular meme isn’t a case of social engineering, the past few years have been rife with examples of social games and memes designed to extract and collect data. Just think of the mass data extraction of more than 70 million US Facebook users performed by #CambridgeAnalytica.” O’Neil added that “we need to approach our interactions with technology mindful of the data we generate and how it can be used at scale.” The author isn’t alone in her speculation that the meme’s spread could potentially mask the tech giant’s potentially nefarious motives.

Amy Webb, a professor and author at NYU Stern School of Business, told CBS News that the viral trend gives Facebook “a perfect storm for #machinelearning,” adding that the challenge “presented Facebook with a [terrifying] opportunity to learn, to train their systems to better recognize small changes” in users’ facial appearances. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾

  • Here are just a few of the bitter truths that most people have traded for a sweet lie: nearly everything is taxed and regulated, we are spoon fed lies and propaganda through the television, our children are being dumbed down and lied to in schools, everything we do is being recorded and archived by the NSA, the government is evil, social engineering is being used to divide us (divide and conquer strategy,) there is fluoride in our water, our food is being poisoned, they're poisoning the air via chemtrails (geo-engineering,) TV/social media/video games is mindless entertainment used to distract us from the real problems, 5G is part of the beast's system, most politicians are puppets, Hollywood is an evil cesspool of pedophiles and Satanists, our rights are being stolen from under our noses, they're slowly chipping away at the first and second amendment, they're banning bumpstocks, high capacity magazines, and "assault weapons", not to ensure your safety, but to make sure that no one can fight back when the beast finally reveals it's face (don't believe me? Look up wounded knee massacre and French police use live ammunition against protesters.) You are being brainwashed, critical thinkers is not what they want, if you don't know what I'm talking about or you think I'm a conspiracy theorist without looking any of this up for yourself you've been successfully brainwashed.
Don't believe me? Look it up. Think for yourself, do your own reaserch, dont believe the lies. 
All I can do is scream the truth from here, whether you look it up or not is up to you. 
God bless.

  • @centipedenation -  Throwback from November 2018: Jordan Peterson is attending this year's Trilateral Commission (not the first time), a globalist organization created by Zbigniew Brzezinsky and David Rockefeller. Featured members include George Soros, Henry Kissinger, and Diane Feinstein. What do you guys think about this character? When he first came on the scene, he started off saying the right things, but when people started looking into his background, it all started going downhill from there. Peterson previously served the global elite before he gained widespread prominence as a dissident. Blogger Vox-Day uncovered some details about his past. Peterson helped write a United Nations whitepaper titled, “A NEW GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP: ERADICATE POVERTY AND TRANSFORM ECONOMIES THROUGH SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.” The report endorses globalism, opposes private property, and calls for third-world migrants to overwhelm Western society. Peterson admitted to working on the UN whitepaper during an October 2016 appearance on The Dark Room Podcast. That didn't help his reputation. Also, by asking Kavanaugh to step down during his hearings while supporting Ford without due process, that turned on a lot of light bulbs and was possibly the reason many went looking deeper into his past. An anon said it best: "While Peterson may have a large following of mostly right-wing male individuals, he does not share those particular beliefs. In addition to opposing nationalism, Peterson appears to endorse globalist collectivism dictated by international bodies like the UN as its replacement." What do you guys think?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • It's the simple meme that's taking over your social media feeds: the "#10YearChallenge," where users upload side-by-side photos of themselves from a decade ago and now.

But it might not be so simple.

Facebook on Wednesday distanced itself from the "10 Year Challenge" after an article set off speculation that the social media giant could be secretly #miningdata from the photos to improve its #facialrecognition algorithms. It's a scenario that those who have studied social media companies don't rule out, despite Facebook's denials.

The photo challenge gives Facebook "a perfect storm for #machinelearning," said Amy Webb, a professor at NYU Stern School of Business with an upcoming book about how #artificialintelligence can manipulate humans. "It presented Facebook with a terrified opportunity to learn, to train their systems to better recognize small changes" in users' appearances, she told CBS News.

The "10 Year Challenge" popped up last week and across Facebook, Instagram (which is owned by Facebook) and Twitter millions of people have participated. The challenge generated 5.2 million engagements on Facebook in just three days, according to the social media monitoring tool #Talkwalker. It was the latest in a constant stream of social media crazes — like the "Bird Box" challenge and Top Nine photo collage — that enticed users to join in with little concern for safety and privacy. There are also viral hashtags like #MyFirstConcertWas, which get users to reveal answers to popular security questions.

Speculation about the meme's ulterior motive flared up after Wired writer Kate O'Neill published an op-ed suggesting it wasn't just harmless fun.

O'Neill pointed out that the viral challenge has filled Facebook with labeled, side-by-side user photos taken within a fixed period of time. That's different, and easier to analyze, than the years of photos that users have already uploaded in no particular order. It's also more useful for technology that's trying to capture how people look and how they age.@freedom_faction #Technocracy #SocialEngineering #10YearsChallenge #2009VS2019 #MindControl #BehaviorModification

Millions use #Tylenol on a daily basis without concern, but it has a wide range of toxic side effects you should be aware of, especially if you are pregnant or use it with your children.

A number of non-peer-reviewed articles have been written and published on the web claiming that there is literally nothing to fear from #acetaminophen during #pregnancy. There are two types of articles that fall into this category. First, reputable watchdog organizations have weighed in on the issue, declaring acetaminophen use during pregnancy and during childhood to be proven safe. In particular, the National Health Service of the UK and the Center for Accountability in Science have both strongly criticized the #Spanish study from 2016 showing a link between acetaminophen use during pregnancy and #ADHD/#autism.

The second type of article is generally written by a science writer working for an organization that runs a website. Often quoting one to three experts who claim that is perfectly safe and that pregnant women and families should not be concerned, many of these articles are published by reputable sources that are generally trustworthy. Typically, an expert is being asked to comment on one particular publication showing a link between acetaminophen use (usually during pregnancy) and some sort of neuropsychiatric problem (autism, lowered IQ, hyperactivity, and/or social/behavioral problems, depending on the study). There are several important things to consider when evaluating these articles:

1.  There are a number of University Professors who have studied the use of acetaminophen on the developing brain and who are keenly aware of the potential dangers. A partial list of these individuals is provided below.

2.  Being an expert in acetaminophen neurotoxicity during development means that considerable time has been invested in studying the issue. Any true expert in this issue will be aware of basic facts regarding acetaminophen neurotoxicity. These facts include the following: 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾#BigPharma #PopulationControl #SocialEngineering
