    Nope. Privacy is actually important concept here.

      *shrug* or I know how much work/thought/etc goes there. It is very easy to diss it without having built a social product first. Look at G+ shutdown - “uh oh, privacy hard, we will just take the whole product down”.

      FB has lots of amazing work in the field of privacy frameworks, integrity, etc - it is a hard problem and it is taken seriously.

      Irish DPA audits happened already ages ago. Sure, there may be an odd product call here and there, but underneath all that there is a solid foundation.

      So like,

      for post in json_blob
      if "shit" in post.text,
      bad_boy += 1

      return final bad_boy

      ?

      Yes, but much more sophisticated than just word occurrence. It's a deep learning model that has learned to predict if the post was written by a dumbass.

      Not that hard, just take a text classification model using paragraph2vec or something.
