Tidligere Facebook-folk bruger Trumps strategi imod ham

Wired:
“But McGowan rolls her eyes at the notion that Trump conjured some kind of digital black magic in 2016. She takes no issue with copying his playbook. In fact, she admires the way that conservative power brokers, including the Koch brothers, have used data to their advantage. She just wants to do it on the left. Some Democratic megadonors seem to buy her argument: Acronym and its affiliated political action committee have received millions in funding from LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman, film director Steven Spielberg, and venture capitalist Michael Moritz.”

Facebook investerer 5 mio. dollars i US-lokalmedier

Facebook Journalism Project:
“This new investment will focus on two major areas: diversity and entrepreneurship.

We will start by investing in local news organizations that serve historically marginalized communities. These organizations and newsrooms ensure that important stories and perspectives that reflect the diversity of our communities are told. […]

The trend of news creators creatively stepping in to fill community news needs continues to grow and serve audiences in new ways. We will contribute to this effort by funding programs that focus on the business skills individuals need to run successful, independent news organizations.”

Rygte: Skal Instagram-stifter være chef for TikTok?

The Interface (Casey Newton, The Verge):
“And yet, if Systrom harbored some desire to get back in the game — and start on third base — it’s hard to imagine a more intriguing perch than TikTok. The app is dominant among the younger generation, and yet it still feels as if the company is just scratching the surface of what it could become. It seems possible that TikTok could be the canvas Systrom had once hoped Instagram could be for him over the long term — a quasi-independent company that would allow him to nurture a community, invent new creative tools, and win in business.”

The Verge:
“‘ByteDance let us know today they would not be selling TikTok’s US operations to Microsoft,’ says Microsoft in a statement. ‘We are confident our proposal would have been good for TikTok’s users, while protecting national security interests.

We look forward to seeing how the service evolves in these important areas.'”

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.

Måske er Zetland ikke kuren mod nyhedstræthed

Artiklen er baseret på arbejde af den danske medieforsker Kim Andersen.

Nieman Lab:
“The results: People who felt more news fatigue were less likely to use Zetland’s slow news. But people who were already consuming more news on a regular basis were more likely to use their Zetland subscription.

In other words, Zetland was more attractive to people who were already consuming a lot of news than to those who weren’t. And it was less attractive to people feeling a lot of news fatigue than to those who weren’t.”

QAnon-site lukket efter faktatjek

Bloomberg:
“Qmap.pub is among the largest websites promoting the QAnon conspiracy, with over 10 million visitors in July, according to web analytics firm SimilarWeb Ltd., and served as the primary archive of QAnon’s posts. The website aggregates posts by Q, the anonymous figure behind the QAnon theory, and the creator of the Qmap.pub website is known online only as ‘QAppAnon.’

The fact-checking site Logically.ai identified Jason Gelinas of New Jersey on Sept. 10 as the “developer and mouthpiece” for the site. New Jersey state records connect QAppAnon to Gelinas’s home address, Bloomberg found.”

Er målet “kun” at undgå adblockere eller ser I det som starten på eksperimentering med forretningsmodeller?

Robert Borges, CEO: Step 1 er at undgå adblockers, fordi vi mener, at som medie bør man stille krav til sine brugere. Step 2 er at kigge på denne og lignende modeller, eksempelvis kommer vi også med en paywall på CMP-delen.

Kvalitet: Sådan hentede The Atlantic 300.000 abonnenter

I’ve been arguing for a long time that we will be saved as an institution by bearing down on quality, quality, quality. Just do the most deeply reported, beautifully written, carefully edited, fact-checked, copyedited, and beautifully designed stories — and the reader will come. They want to be supportive and they want access. And it turns out to be true. Thank God for it.

Jeffrey Goldberg, Editor-in-Chief, The Atlantic

Apple lancerer mega-bundle

Nieman Lab:
“Twenty-five bucks a month is a real savings! But even within Apple’s generally upmarket customer base, the number of people who’ll be attracted to a $30/month price point is much smaller than at $15/month. And that smaller, richer group is the only one who might be drawn into News+ by Apple One. (Think about it: A year of Apple One Premier would run you $360. A year of Amazon Prime — which offers a distinct but philosophically similar bundle of services — is just $119.)”

Hvad skal udviklere vide om iOS 14?

VentureBeat:
“One of the biggest changes coming as part of the iOS 14 update is to the App Tracking Transparency framework. Essentially, developers will now have to explicitly ask players to agree to share their usage data, and many unique advertising identifiers will no longer be available. This limits developers’ capability to track user actions post-install, target users in ad campaigns, build user-level performance dashboards, monetize via ads, and so on.”

Google i autocomplete-modvind

Wired:
“Google said Thursday that it had reined in the autocomplete function of its search engine to prevent it from favoring electoral candidates or political parties. It didn’t take long for WIRED to find—and Google to hurriedly fix—breaches of the new policy, suggesting it is a work in progress. 

WIRED found that typing “donate” into the lucrative white box on Google.com could prompt suggestions for donating to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, but not Donald Trump’s. After WIRED flagged them to the company, Google said Friday it had blocked those suggestions for breaking its new election-related policies for autocomplete.”

AI-etik gentager fortidens fejl

MIT Technology Review:
“We believe these groups are well-intentioned and are doing worthwhile work. The AI community should, indeed, agree on a set of international definitions and concepts for ethical AI. But without more geographic representation, they’ll produce a global vision for AI ethics that reflects the perspectives of people in only a few regions of the world, particularly North America and northwestern Europe.”
