Facebook’s Suicide Algorithms is Invasive

The Chinese Government is essentially using a credit game with active CCTV monitoring to directly rank the value of a person to the Chinese nation. It has nothing to do with conformity and everything to do with maintaining information and behavioral control to boost productivity. It is more or less the same damn thing as Facebook profiting off of our data. In that regard, I would consider Facebook to be far more benign then an actual automated autocracy system that China employs.
