    A few weeks ago, a group of High Tech Elite met with Obama for a Tasty Treat.

    Mark Zuckerberg was seated next to Obama, and now one can make a pretty safe bet that they discussed the Facebook Upgrade.

    Facebook’s managers are deploying a new software upgrade that will dismantle myriad groups of like-minded political activists unless they get a special software-key from the company.

    But Facebook managers are providing very limited information about which groups are being favored with the new key, prompting some activists to complain about possible political favoritism among Facebook managers, and many other activists to experiment with techniques and tricks to get the needed upgrade-key.

    “Who is being given the upgrade?” asked Pamela Geller, the New York organizer of a 15,000-member group opposed to Islamist political groups. Without the special key, groups lose access to their members, she said. “I’ve seen people really freaking out.”

    Facebook’s software changes do not impact the individual pages that Facebook subscribers use to stay in contact with friends and to tout their relationships, statuses and accomplishments. The upgrade only effects the software that links Facebook’s “groups” of like-minded people, each of which is managed by one or more group administrators.

    The groups vary in size from a single person to more than one million people. They have varying levels of activity from nothing to very active.

    The new software-upgrade will automatically archive all groups. Once archived, each group’s past activity will be still be visible on Facebook, but the groups’ administrators will lose access to their lists of group members. That means the administrators lose contact with everyone in their groups, and will be forced to recruit all those members again – unless Facebook provides them with the special upgrade software.

    With the upgrade, group-administrators can keep in contact with their original members, and get to use the upgraded software to help the group become more active.

    (snip)

    Chicago libertarian activist Eric Odom has built an active 60,000-member group, but is not being offered an upgrade key.

    The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence got the upgrade for its 1,000-member group. “We changed over very smoothly,” said David Churchill, the network-manager at the D.C.-based gun-control group. “We just basically clicked the upgrade button, checked it over, and we have a tremendous increase in participation,” he said....

    As usual, TMN has nothing at all to contribute to the discussion.

    Shoo, little moron, shoo.

    Being a partisan hack is TMN's one area of expertise.

    But that doesn't extend to having enough discernment to properly identify other partisan hacks.

    so true about the llama TMS

    Pretty interesting viewpoint on this. This would be a pretty new crazy realm of political warfare.

    Liberals are very clever and sneaky. They definitely have game. I don't believe in coincidences either. This will be set up to benefit Obama and the Dems.
