Why can't Facebook fix its fake-news problem?

What's real? What's fake?

With more than 1 billion people using Facebook, the company's artificial intelligence algorithms can’t answer these questions, so it hired outside firms to moderate content. These human "content moderators" decide what’s fake, real, satire, inappropriate and illegal. No surprise: It's not working.

In this Komando on Demand podcast, you'll hear from Brooke Binkwoski, former Facebook fact-checker, about the real story. Find out how Facebook's content moderators watch the seedy side of life all day, so you don't have to.

'Internet of things' connected cars will invade your privacy

Cars have become part of the "internet of things." They are connected to our devices, the internet as well as big tech companies. Car makers are taking advantage of this new technology to know as much about us as they can. Our cars will be able to track our behaviors, allow advertisers to send us targeted ads, and track our driving habits. What will your new car know about you? And more importantly, what does that mean to your privacy?
