THE EVOLUTION OF FACEBOOK'S GRAPH API

Marcus Burkhardt, Anne Helmond, Tatjana Seitz, Fernando Van der Vlist
2020 Selected Papers of Internet Research, SPIR  
Our empirical historical analysis of Facebook's Graph API is based on the entire corpus of available archived developer documentation held by the Internet Archive.  ...  Facebook's application programming interfaces (APIs) enable third-party app developers to access data and functionality and have become central to many of the platform's ongoing data scandals and privacy  ...  The platform responded by changing its policies, more strictly governing third-party data access via Facebook's Graph API, and by removing particular targeting options from Facebook's Marketing API for  ...

Can we still avoid automatic face detection? [article]

Michael J. Wilber, Vitaly Shmatikov, Serge Belongie
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We show that in general, state-of-the-art detectors can often find faces even if the subject wears occluding clothing or even if the uploader damages the photo to prevent faces from being detected.  ...  This means darkening the image is not an effective way to hide faces -it hurts human performance without affecting Facebook's performance at all.  ...  Consider a middle school student fighting Internet bullying, a member of a witness protection program, a whistleblower hiding from law enforcement, or an activist protesting their local government.  ...

The Anatomy of the Facebook Social Graph [article]

Johan Ugander, Brian Karrer, Lars Backstrom, Cameron Marlow
2011 arXiv   pre-print
We compare our results with those from smaller social networks and find mostly, but not entirely, agreement on common structural network characteristics.  ...  The sparsity of the network does not, however, imply that users are far from each other in Facebook's network.  ...  As individuals bring their social relations online, the focal point of the internet is evolving from being a network of documents to being a network of people, and previously invisible social structures  ...

The viral growth of these social applications can potentially influence how content is produced and consumed in the future Internet.  ...  Community: A community in a graph is a set of nodes such that the ratio of edges between these nodes, and edges from these nodes to nodes outside of this community is 'high' [13] .  ...  An edge exists between two nodes A and B if A and B interacted directly with each other (i.e., performed an activity directly on each other) through the application.  ...
