Robotter fylder mere i Facebooks moderation

Som sådan er det ikke nyt. I Ugerevy #12 kunne du læse, at Facebook fjernede indhold ved en fejl – på grund af det tryk, coronavirus og COVID-19 lægger på moderatorressourcerne.

MediaWatch:
“Facebook har bl.a. forbudt salg af ansigtsmasker på platformen, men det finder stadig sted, ligesom andet problematisk indhold ifølge avisen florerer i brugernes feed. Nick Clegg forklarer, at hjemsendelsen af de ansatte har overladt en større del af moderationsarbejdet til robotter, hvilket både har gjort arbejdet langsommere og mere grovkornet.”

The app was recently made available for download in Apple’s App Store in the U.S. and Canada, according to the app research firm Apptopia. Tuned bills itself “a private space where you and your significant other can just be yourselves,” although it adheres to Facebook’s data policy, which allows for the collection of communications and other behavior to inform ad targeting.”

Manglende “commute” rammer podcast-lytningen

Nieman Lab:
“Like many others, Stitcher sees the absence of the morning commute as the primary cause of decrease in overall listening: Average listening between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. dropped about 20 percent, while average listening in other hours was down just 4 percent. By the start of April, their data saw a slight uptick in listening during non-commute hours, but it wasn’t enough to make up for the commute loss.”

Google was ordered by French antitrust regulators to pay publishers to display snippets of their articles after years of helping itself to excerpts for its own news service.

The French antitrust agency gave the Alphabet Inc. unit three months to thrash out deals with press publishers and agencies demanding talks on how to remunerate them for displaying their content.”

Det giver “ingen mening” at fjerne paywall ved COVID-19-indhold

Poynter:
“The newspaper industry seems to think that public service can’t coexist with revenue. That’s a mistake — at a time when the beleaguered industry can’t afford to make one. We do provide an important public service, but why can’t a public service business be, well, in business?”

The Atlantic sætter rekord under krisen

Nieman Lab:
“We have never, in the 163-year history of this magazine, had an audience like we had in March: 87 million unique visitors to our site, and more than 168 million pageviews. The number of unique visitors is astonishing — more than double the previous one-month record. But the most notable statistic, the one with possibly the greatest salience for The Atlantic’s future, is this: Your work has brought in more than 36,000 new subscribers over the past four weeks, even as we have lifted paywall restrictions on our coronavirus coverage.”

Amerikanske lokalmedier eksperimenterer under krisen

Nieman Lab:
“The pair dove into cashflow worksheets and planning for the worst- and best-case scenarios. (You can get the full recording, slide deck, and a revenue resource guide from LION.) The number-crunching is critical stuff — but what really caught our attention were the ideas and experiments that small local news organizations are deploying on short notice. With a number of local online news organizations having launched during or immediately after the 2008-09 financial crisis, the presenters pointed out that many LION members already know necessity can breed innovation.”

Nu kommer “Zoom-trætheden”

Digiday:
“Zoom fatigue is exacerbated by how many interactions seem to have automatically moved to video chat, even if they were useless meetings to begin with, or could have been replaced by an email or a Slack. And even meetings or interactions that would have normally been done by that archaic method of communication, the phone call, have all turned to Zoom. For many, uncertain times — and probably seeing hardly anyone outside of immediate family — means video chat is the default.”
