Digiday har også skrevet historien – med DR og TV 2 som eksempler:

“The issue was caused by a coding error and does not represent any immediate plans to roll out a new ad product, according to Facebook, which said it was limited to iOS devices. The company didn’t say how long the error lasted or how many publishers or users were affected.”

Er Facebook klar til valget?

Det er jo et af de store spørgsmål:

Facebook has been terrible about removing vaccine misinformation. Will it do better with election misinformation?

Wired:
“On Thursday morning, Facebook  announced several new policies to wrangle misinformation on its platforms ahead of the November election.

Del 2: Digitale medietendenser

Her kan du læse nogle af ugens tendenser indenfor medier. Det kan være en ny metode eller tilgang, branchen forsøger at tage til sig.

Kulturministeren: Google er en uigennemtrængelig organisation

Joy Mogensen havde kaldt Google til møde med partiernes kulturordførere i sagen om YouTubes forhold til indhold fra DR samt dansk musik. Hun er dog ikke tilfreds med fremmødet fra Googles side.

Ekko skriver:
“Google er en fuldstændigt uigennemsigtig og uigennemtrængelig organisation, der styres af nogle algoritmer og mennesker, som beslutningstagere ikke kan komme i kontakt med. Det hører jeg også fra mange folk ude i brancherne. I Danmark er vi vant til, at vi kan aftale retningslinjer, så vi kan leve sammen og trives, men når man aldrig kan komme i kontakt med dem, der faktisk tager beslutningerne, udgør det et demokratisk problem i sig selv.”

Nye studier af Google-brugere

What’s New in Publishing:
“For example, one study (of billions of search results) found that over a quarter of Google searchers click on the first organic result. This ranking at position #1 achieves a click rate that is more than 10x higher than a ranking at position #10.

Since the average CTR falls sharply after position #1, the biggest, absolute leap in CTR is made with a ranking improvement from #2 to #1.”

Få danskere vil betale for nyheder

“Selvom 6 ud af 10 danskere jævnligt besøger og bruger nyhedsmedier, er det fåtallet, der er villige til at betale for nyhedsforbruget, viser ny undersøgelse. Størstedelen peger på prisen for et avisabonnement som forklaring – samt det store udbud af gratis alternativer.”

Cookie-bokse tvinger Danske Medier-måling på pause

MediaWatch:
“Mediernes udrulning af nye samtykkebokse på nettet giver så meget knas i indsamlingen af data, der ligger til grund for målingen af trafik, at Danske Medier Research parkerer den nye topliste, indtil der er fundet en løsning.”

Nej til cookies rammer medierne

MediaWatch:

Radikalt forslag om medieskat møder kritik

The Athletic når 1 million abonnenter

CNBC:
“Hansmann said in the first two weeks after sports shut down in March, there were days when fewer than 100 people were signing up for The Athletic, compared with “thousands” normally. The Athletic announced in early June it had laid off 8% of its staff and mandated across-the-company pay cuts.

Three months later, The Athletic is typically adding more subscribers per day than ever and has reached the 1 million subscriber milestone, co-founder Alex Mather said.”

Taboola og Outbrain går – alligevel – ikke sammen

Og det er der nok nogle medier, der ikke er så kede af:

Digiday:
“Both founded in Israel in the mid-2000s, fiercely competitive Taboola and Outbrain had long duked it out for the most lucrative publisher deals, cutting large — seemingly uneconomic — guarantee and revenue share deals in order to gain exclusive partnerships. It was common for publishers to switch between Outbrain and Taboola once their contracts were up. One publishing executive described the negotiations as “like home insurance, you switch every two years.” “

Annoncebranchen: Nu lytter Apple omsider

Digiday:
““It’s complicated” is probably the best way to describe Apple’s relationship with the advertising industry in recent years. Apple itself is a much-lauded marketer that leans on glitzy advertising to sell its smartphones and services. It recognizes developers rely on advertising in order to keep its App Store thriving with free-to-download apps.”

Manglende puls kan identificere deepfakes

VentureBeat:
“Existing deepfake detection models focus on traditional media forensics methods, like tracking unnatural eyelid movements or distortions at the edge of the face. The first study for detection of unique GAN fingerprints was introduced in 2018.  But photoplethysmography (PPG) translates visual cues such as how blood flow causes slight changes in skin color into a human heartbeat.”
