Facebook, Cambridge Analytica — #Contagion #MarkovChain #Network

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

#Facebook — The Markov Chain. The Cambridge Analytica (et.al.) 87 Million user PII data exploitation can be modeled using Markov Chains for Disease and Rumor Spreading in Complex Networks

Isomorphically, the info-wars/propaganda/fake-news/defamation-slander is the same as a pandemic in how it spreads in a complex network (human based or computer based).

According to : Guilherme Ferraz de Arruda, Francisco A. Rodrigues, Pablo Martin Rodriiguez, Emanuele Cozzo, Yamir Moreno

The states are:

(i) susceptible or ignorant (X)

(ii) infected or spreader (Y )

(iii) recovered or stifler (Z)

So which state are you?

Ignorant, Spreader or Stifler.

I believe my wife & I have worked very hard to become Stiflers (Z).

Unlike Mark Zuckerberg, I was not part of the 87 Million!

So I would like to thank my Facebook direct-connected friends. You acted as Stiflers. As such I was not infected/compromised. I could not have done that without you! Thanks!

To those who would Twitter or Facebook shame the X or Y people, I say you are misdirected in your efforts. The ones who need to be held accountable are Cambridge Analytica (et. al. ) who intentionally released the contagion in Facebook’s network and the Facebook people who engaged Cambridge Analytica (i. e. took their money) & who failed to disengage Cambridge Analytica (et. al. ) in a reasonable timeframe. They inflicted the contagion upon X & Y.

The Z people (my Facebook friends) saved me and the other (330Million less 87Million) Americans from being exposed.
