That everything in life has a beginning, middle and end is nothing new to anyone. Also not surprising is the ephemerality with which fads come and go, especially in the digital technologies market.
What really strikes – and scares – is the willingness of industry giants like Apple and Google to create applications (which are useless, in fact unapproachable, as they are of no use for anything) whose sole purpose is to encourage slander crimes. , insult and defamation.
So I assume because if the information conveyed in the apps in question were true, they wouldn’t want (or need) the author to hide in anonymity.
I refer specifically to the Secret app, which allows the user to disclose (true or otherwise) secrets of him or her friends anonymously via Facebook.
Everything happens without having to be identified, which constitutes an attack on the recently approved Marco Civil da Internet, in which case full responsibility lies with the administrators of the web page and those responsible for the application.
It should be noted that the cover-up of the “pseudo-affirmers” of the acts and facts of the lives of others confronts consecrated principles of civil law, such as that of good faith, the burden of proof on those who claim, among others whose ballast is anchored in civil law. Roman, and has been the helm of praetors since the early ages.
The free application launched last January for smartphones with iOS and Android operating system, began to be highlighted in Brazil, becoming one of the most commented topics on Twitter last month.
This is the challenge of a fascinating new page of law that unfolds in a globalized international world: cyber law.
Born to forceps, and in the wake of technology, much remains to be regulated to protect society from cybercriminals operating in a borderless world, protected by the anonymity of the network, the essence of the Secret.
As a result, the Espírito Santo Court was right to order, in a preliminary decision, the withdrawal of “Secret” from the Google and Apple app stores and “Cryptic”, similarly functioning, from the Microsoft store.
The court accepted the request of the Public Prosecutor of Espírito Santo, which filed a public civil action. Will the decision be valid for the entire national territory? Unfortunately not. Because the state can’t control this kind of situation.
In short, there was no effectiveness in the Judicial Order, the crass symptom of the crisis of the state as an institution whose authority rests on its coercive force.
I think that by encouraging the spread of dubious content, rather than valuing social networks, the cyber industry devalues ??it. Be that as it may, the users of such applications devoted to the wicked craft of malice, sometimes producing, sometimes wondering whether these facts are real or not, are equated with what we might call “Neo Dom Casmurros,” both victims and tormentors of their own. doubt and curiosity, which instill and consume.
Just as Bentinho tormented by Capitu’s imaginary adultery live imprisoned in a grisly parallel reality, tormented by the anguish of what they will never know and, supposing they knew, what (and for what) would it be worth knowing ?!
Declining, Facebook, the largest social network in Brazil, according to studies at Princeton University, is expected to lose by 80% of its users by 2017, at an average rate of 20% per year.
I think that with these applications, in my view illegal, to support activities that can be criminal, exposing others to property losses, should shorten (even more) the life cycle of Facebook.
What is the ethical sense that the executives of these companies move? How can these apps improve the society we live in? In what sense does the encouragement of cowards and loud talk magnify society?
I think that when creating an application that will be used by millions of people around the world, the leaders of these companies should make these reflections.
