Ny bog om Facebook er på gaden

Bogen er skrevet af Steven Levy, hedder ‘Facebook – The Inside Story’ – og du kunne læse et uddrag i Ugerevyen fra uge 7.

‘Off-Facebook Activity’ under luppen

TechCrunch:
““This tool illustrates just how impossible it is for users to prevent external data from being shared with Facebook,” it writes, warning with emphasis: “Without meaningful information about what data is collected and shared, and what are the ways for the user to opt-out from such collection, Off-Facebook activity is just another incomplete glimpse into Facebook’s opaque practices when it comes to tracking users and consolidating their profiles.””

“Facebook Considers Tougher Transparency Rules in Response to Tactics Used by Bloomberg Campaign”
Social Media Today

Derfor behandler Facebook og Twitter Bloomberg forskelligt

Nieman Lab:
“To take just one example, Twitter recently suspended 70 accounts because they each posted identical pro-Bloomberg messages as part of the campaign’s social-media marketing blitz. […] But while Twitter reacted harshly, Facebook seems untroubled. It says such posts are fine so long as they are labeled as ads.”

NYPD strammer sociale medie-reglerne for betjente

New York Post:
“The NYPD has issued a new strict social media policy for its officers  — as the top brass tries to tamp down on leaks and Internal Affairs probes a union head’s often antagonistic online rhetoric, The Post has learned.

The new policy, which was issued on Feb. 12, tells officers not to post any information on cases they get from the job that hasn’t been made public — such as photos or videos from crime scenes.”

Undersøgelse: Danske medier bliver mere uundværlige

“En stribe medier hører til blandt de hjemmesider, som danskere helst ikke vil undvære. Villigheden til at betale for nyheder online stiger en smule.”

Nyt medie ville sende nyhedsbreve uden tracking

…og det var angiveligt svært at finde en leverandør, der kunne det.

Nieman Lab:
“The Markup tested and rejected eight different email providers — including the industry’s 800-pound gorilla, Mailchimp — before finally turning to Revue, a small Dutch company that agreed to custom-build a newsletter with no user-tracking features. (No one had requested the option before, apparently.)”

Journalistbiotekster giver ikke meget troværdighed

Nieman Lab:
“A new study from the Center for Media Engagement at the University of Texas (with support from the Democracy Fund) tested how the inclusion of a reporter’s bio might influence a reader’s trust.

‘Using a personal photo and including personal details in a reporter’s biography made participants feel they knew the reporter better, but this feeling didn’t influence readers’ attitudes about a news organization more broadly,’ the report says. ‘This suggests that providing journalist biographies isn’t enough to boost trust and engagement when used alone.'”

MediaWatch:
“De danske mediebrugere anvender i gennemsnit 2,3 streamingtjenester til film og tv. Hos den yngre del af befolkningen er antallet oppe på 3,5. DR’s streamingtilbud er topscorer, mens Netflix napper public service-stationen i haserne.”

Visuel misinformation er andet end deepfakes

Nieman Lab:
“But the majority of visual misinformation that people are exposed to involves much simpler forms of deception. One common technique involves recycling legitimate old photographs and videos and presenting them as evidence of recent events.”

Nye cookie-regler kan betyde flere betalingsmure

MediaWatch:
“Der er ikke mange rosende ord fra Danske Medier til nye retningslinjer for behandling af personoplysninger. De kan i sidste ende betyde, at mere indhold ryger bag betalingsmur, vurderer organisationen.”

…og ramme programmatic

Dansk Markedsføring:
“- Min vurdering er, at dette kan medføre, at programmatic – som vi kender det i dag – i vid udstrækning vil sygne hen, da færre cookie-data er ensbetydende med mindre effektive bud på de automatiserede programmatiske platforme, færre kliks og i sidste ende færre konverteringer, siger [direktør for Dansk Annoncørforening] Holger Wilcks.”

Kan AI forudsige opsagte abonnementer?

Journalism.co.uk:
“This, at least, is what Jarosław Góra, co-founder of Deep BI, tries to help publishers with. The basic thought is quite simple: the AI tools look at reader engagement, monitor any changes and automate paywalls in real-time to convert readers to subscribers. These automated decisions are based on understanding what kind of content attracts the reader and predicting when they are likely to cancel their subscription in the future.”

Derfor kæmper lokalmedier med digitale abonnementer

What’s New In Publishing:
“[…] some express doubt that a viable reader revenue model exists for local outlets. That’s the position taken by media entrepreneur Michael Shapiro in a recent piece titled ‘The False Promise of Paywalls for Local News.’ His position is fairly simple: most readers won’t extract enough value to pay for local news, and a paywall will have a dampening effect on more viable revenue generators, namely local advertising. ‘By limiting audience, paywalls reduce the attractiveness of advertising on local news sites, creating something of a revenue death spiral,’ he wrote.”

Digiday:
“The GNI Subscription Lab still focuses on developing diversified revenue streams from digital subscriptions, however, it not only ran 10 months but it was focused on developing long term strategies for the publishers involved to make up for the declining print revenues and build sustainable, digital-first businesses. The cohort also consisted of several smaller publishers that Monnie said were chosen in order prevent the emerging news deserts that came out of local newspapers shuttering.”

Insider udvikler værktøj til førstepartsdata

Digiday:
“Insider Inc. has developed a first-party data ad targeting and reporting tool called Sága that the publisher says offers contextual and behavioral targeting, deeper information on readers and real-time campaign reporting. The goal is to give marketers more sophisticated tools that rely on its first-party data, rather than third-party cookies, that still drive results while putting consumer privacy first.”

Svindel plager ads.txt

Digiday:
“In theory, ads.txt files help advertisers avoid illegitimate sellers who arbitrage inventory and spoof domains. The reality, however, is the files are also fertile ground for fraudsters. Since the ads.txt tool launched, fraudsters have exploited the fact that buyers don’t always check the lists with bots that generate fake browser data and create fabricated URLs in order to pilfer media spend. The latest example of this type of fraud is called the 404bot.”

Firefox aktiverer DNS over HTTPS for alle i USA

VentureBeat:
“DoH, for the uninitiated, is a standard proposed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that promises improved privacy and security by preventing third parties — such as internet service providers (ISPs) — from seeing what websites users are visiting. As things stand, when someone enters a web address into their browser’s address bar, a request is sent across the internet for the IP address associated with that URL. This is traditionally done in plain text, which makes it vulnerable to eavesdropping or manipulation.”

“About half predict that humans’ use of technology will weaken democracy between now and 2030 due to the speed and scope of reality distortion, the decline of journalism and the impact of surveillance capitalism. A third expect technology to strengthen democracy as reformers find ways to fight back against info-warriors and chaos”
