12:15 am
that for the 1st time urban areas, areas like cobble and the main cities are facing the same rate of food insecurities as the rural areas. there are various reasons for this, but the main one also recently compounded by the fact that the international community is withholding billions and billions of dollars of much needed money here everyone. we've spoken to whether they're civil servants under the taliban government taliban fighters, people who work in the health sector and nurses, people who work in centers of drug rehabilitation. they have not been paid their salaries and months. people do not have the cash to feed themselves. also recently a couple of weeks ago, even world food program saying that only 5 percent of households across the country are getting enough to eat so desperate time 0 really going to get worse with the onset of winter temperatures dropping below freezing. here it will snow it will be wet, and also the aid agencies warning that many people who are displaced will be cut off for much needed aid and russia. briefly. also quoting for the international
12:16 am
community to release those funds. we've been talking to people here, one man yesterday telling us that this is not the money of the taliban. this is not isolate money. this is the money that belongs to the afghan people. and the situation is so desperate that they need to release it as soon as possible. and other news, a former facebook employee turned whistleblower has been giving evidence to you. k politicians, for instance, how again says the tech john has knowingly fed online hate and violence to maximize profits. her appearance could affect new rules for social networks in the u. k. well, we challenge reports. not frances, how going says she never wanted to be a whistleblower. but since leaving facebook with tens of thousands of internal documents earlier this year, her alarm call is being heard around the world. october the 5th us congress. october 25th, the u. k. parliament's, a message that is deeply critical of the way facebook is run. mark soccer bird is, has unilateral control over 3000000000 people. right?
12:17 am
there is no will at the top to make sure the systems are run adequately same way. the systems francis, how good is most concerned about the algorithms promoting content to uses of the social media giants? i think lots of research the says that kind of ranking engagement based ranking prioritizes polarizing extreme divisive content. it doesn't matter for on the left or on the right, it pushes the to the extremes, and it fans have right anger. and he is the easiest way to grow on facebook. she says it's a system, this being abused. there is something called by reality hacking, where you figure out all the trips and how to optimize facebook and good actors, good publishers are already publishing all the content they can, they can do. but bad actors have an incentive to play the algorithm. facebook executives know this, says francis, how going? but the reason they haven't changed the algorithm is money. they think user engagement would decline, and with it add revenues. i think there is
12:18 am
a view inside the company that safety is a cost, a cost center. it's not a hunter, which i think it's very short term and thinking us congress and regulators are investigating facebook. part of the deadly storming of the u. s. capital, an independent report commissioned by facebook, said it failed to stop the platform being used to incite ethnic violence in me and mar. so miss how god believes as a real world cost in lives, i have no doubt the traps like the events for scene around the world. things like me on martin if those are the opening chapters because engagement based ranking does 2 things. one prior prioritizing, amplifies divisive polarizing extreme content and to it's hyper concentrated in, you know, 5 percent of the population. and you only need 3 percent of the population on the streets to have a revolution. facebook says, much of the reporting is based on a false premise. yes, we're a business and we make profit, they say. but the idea that we do so at the expense of people safety or well being misunderstands where our own commercial interests lie. the truth is we've invested
