DR beder influencere fjerne indhold

Journalisten:
“DR har i meget klare vendinger bedt flere influencere om at fjerne screendumps og billeder fra ’Den Store Bagedyst’, som de har delt på sociale medier.

Men en mediejurist er ikke sikker på, at DR har ret til at kræve indholdet fjernet, fordi det er satire.”

Facebook forbyder holocaust-benægtelse

CBS News:
“Facebook has announced a ban on content that denies or distorts the Holocaust. The policy marks a reversal on how to handle a disturbing category of posts that CEO Mark Zuckerberg once said should not be blocked on the platform even though they’re false. […]

The company says it removed 22.5 million pieces of hate speech shared on its platform in the second quarter of this year alone. Facebook has also banned more than 250 white white supremacist organizations and updated its policies for handling militia groups and the QAnon conspiracy theory, the statement said.”

YouTube griber også ind overfor QAnon

I Ugerevyen fra uge 41 kunne du læse, hvordan Facebook slog hårdt ned på QAnon-konspirationsteoretikerne.

YouTube havde indtil i denne uge ikke gjort noget i samme skala, og ifølge CEO Susan Wojcicki handler det blandt andet om, at det er meget uklart, hvad QAnon egentlig er.

Men nu er der sket noget. The New York Times skriver:

The company announced in a blog post that it was updating its hate-speech and harassment policies to prohibit “content that targets an individual or group with conspiracy theories that have been used to justify real-world violence.” The new policy will prohibit content promoting QAnon, as well as related conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate, which falsely claims that top Democrats and Hollywood elites are running an underground sex-trafficking ring from the basement of a Washington pizza restaurant.”

Twitter vil gøre det sværere at retweete

Recode:
“The changes include prompting people not to retweet without adding their own commentary, turning off automatic recommendations for other people’s tweets, and adding more context to its Trending section.

Twitter will also start putting more warning labels on misleading tweets by US politicians and accounts with more than 100,000 followers, and block users from “liking” or replying to those tweets. And if a politician declares premature victory before it’s verified by independent sources, Twitter will label the tweet and direct users to its voter information page.”

Du kan læse mere i Casey Newtons Platformer-nyhedsbrev, Twitter adds friction:

“I’m glad Twitter is giving this a shot, even if these and other election-related platform policy changes have an unfortunate flying-by-the-seat-of-our-pants quality. Social networks had four years to get their houses in order for the next presidential election, and they roll out their best thinking … when early voting is already under way? […]

But there’s another consideration I hope Twitter makes as it implements these changes. A corollary of the internet being too fast is that Twitter’s enforcement is still generally too slow. […]

If moderation teams are properly staffed, and policies are clearly written, it should not take hours to enforce them.”

Vi tager lige én til: “How friction could save the internet,” skriver Protocol.

Twitter blokerer deling af New York Post-artikel

Artiklen handler om Joe Bidens søn og er angiveligt skrevet på et tvivlsomt grundlag. Blokeringen har betydet, at Twitter-chefen Jack Dorsey muligvis modtager en stævning fra det amerikanske senats retsudvalg.

MediaWatch:
“Twitter blokerede onsdag for deling af en artikel fra tabloidmediet New York Post. Artiklen var baseret på e-mails, der angiveligt var skaffet fra Hunter Bidens computer og sendt videre til Rudy Giuliani – en af præsident Donald Trumps toprådgivere.

Twitter valgte at blokere artiklen for at begrænse deling af misinformation på tjenesten op til valget. Samtidig strider artiklen imod Twitters regler for artikler, der er baseret på hacket materiale.”

“Falske profiler, tyveri af identiteter og sladder på den sociale platform Jodel, hvor der i de seneste uger har floreret anonyme anklager mod navngivne politikere om overgreb og seksuelle krænkelser.

Nej til cookies skal være et frit valg

Baggrunden for historien er, at flere medier er gået i gang med at sælge adgang til indholdet for de brugere, der siger nej til cookies.

MediaWatch har spurgt Datatilsynet, hvad de mener om den tilgang:

“Jeg kan ikke udtale mig om den konkrete sag, for det har vi ikke haft mulighed for. Men generelt baseret på de fire nævnte betingelser vil det normalt ikke være i overensstemmelse med kravet om frivillighed, hvis man som bruger ikke har et reelt frivilligt valg til, hvad man giver et samtykke til, hvis man bliver udelukket fra at tilgå indhold. Der kan selvfølgelig være andre hensyn at tage, men det er udgangspunktet.”


COVID-19 betyder nye medieprodukter

What’s New In Publishing:
“In response to our new media habits and changing information needs, many publishers have experimented with efforts such as dropping their paywall (with the hope of converting some fly-by’s into subscribers) and launching new products like (but not exclusively) coronavirus podcasts, alerts, and newsletters. 

According to members of WAN-IFRA’s Global Media Trends Panel, more than half of the editorial executives they surveyed had launched new products as a result of the pandemic. “

Sådan arbejder The Correspondent med interaktioner

Digiday:

And the conversation tab is easily found for members on the homepage. Correspondents are encouraged to spend between 30% and 50% of their time interacting with members. “

IABs framework for annonce-tracking lever ikke op til GPDR

TechCrunch:
“A flagship framework for gathering Internet users’ consent for targeting with behavioral ads — which is designed by ad industry body, the IAB Europe — fails to meet the required legal standards of data protection, according to findings by its EU data supervisor. […]

However the findings by the investigatory division of the Belgian data protection agency cast doubt on all that adoption — suggesting the framework is not fit for purpose.

The inspection service of the Belgium DPA makes a number of findings in a report reviewed by TechCrunch — including that the TCF fails to comply with GDPR principles of transparency, fairness and accountability, and also the lawfulness of processing.”

Medier tester hyppigere skift i annoncepriser

Digiday:
“After surging traffic and declining ad spending compelled many publishers to drop ad prices this spring, sometimes by as much as 20%, a growing number have begun going the other way, upping their prices ahead of periods of anticipated demand, according to several buy- and sell-side sources.

The changes are typically made on publishers’ most sought-after inventory, such as on-site pre-roll video, or podcast ads, and they can be substantial, sometimes as high as 20% above normal CPMs, two agency sources said.”
