😬 Facebook-fejl skabte bekymring

Fra denne uges Ugerevy-artikel:

“En fejl hos Facebook betød, at der ikke blev vist uddrag på links. Hvad enten det var en fejl eller et snedigt greb, viser det en mediebranche, der ikke stoler på Facebook.”

🤔 Facebook deler data om, hvilket indhold der er populært

Washington Post skriver:

“On Wednesday, the social giant announced that it will begin publishing a quarterly report of its own, called the “Widely Viewed Content Report,” that slices its data along new lines to produce a very different set of rankings.

Instead of presenting Facebook as a hotbed of right-leaning politics, the company’s inaugural report presents a far weirder, messier, and spammier picture: the news feed as a junk-mail folder.”

🦠 Facebook mangler gennemsigtighed ifm. COVID-19

Vox skriver:

“[…] the reality is we simply don’t know the true size or effect of Covid-19 misinformation on Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram. That’s in large part because Facebook isn’t giving researchers enough of the real-time data they need to figure out exactly how much Covid-19 misinformation is on the platform, who’s seeing it, and how it’s impacting their willingness to get vaccinated.”

📣 Nu kan du søge efter lyd på Instagram

Social Media Today skriver:

“Instagram has added the capacity to search for audio specifically within the search tab in the app, making it easier to tap into trends based on music clips, with a focus on Reels creation based on the same.”

👻 Snapchat lancerer ‘Snapchat Trends’

Social Media Today lancerer:

“Snapchat has launched a new market research tool, which is essentially Google Trends, but for Snapchat specifically, which could be a huge help for marketers looking to tap into the platform.”

📲 Reddit bygger kopi af TikTok-feedet

TechCrunch skriver:

“According to Reddit, most iOS users should have a button on their app directly to the right of the search bar — when tapped, it will show a stream of videos in a TikTok-like configuration. When presented with a video, (which shows the poster who uploaded it and the subreddit it’s from), users can upvote or downvote, comment, gift an award or share it.”

✨ Twitter retter i nyt design

Gizmodos skriver:

“Twitter on Friday announced that it was making changes to the contrast on its new buttons to accommodate people with sensory sensitivities. The company has received various complaints from users about how the new design choices—which include its new Chirp font, high contrast colors and buttons, fewer gray backgrounds, and less divider lines—have impacted them over the past couple of days.”

⏸ Verifikationer på Twitter er igen sat på pause

Social Media Today skriver:

“It seems like Twitter’s oft-troubled verification application process is struggling yet again, with the platform pausing the current expansion of access to its new and improved verification tool in order to refine the systems that it now has in place.”

👎 OnlyFans siger nej til porno

Bloomberg skriver:

“Starting in October, the company will prohibit creators from posting material with sexually explicit conduct on its website, which many sex workers use to sell fans explicit content. They’ll still be allowed to put up nude photos and videos, provided they’re consistent with OnlyFans’ policy, the company said Thursday.”

🏃‍♂️ Pocket Casts lover hurtigere podcast-parsing

Henover sommeren blev podcast-app’en Pocket Cast købt af Automattic, der står bag blandt andet WordPress. I en artikel om nogle af de ting, der er på vej, nævner de, at de er ved at “scaling up” og i den forbindelse vil mindske den tid, der går fra en podcast-episode bliver udgivet, til den dukker op i app’en.

Dette er muligvis en hentydning til Apple, der på det seneste har haft problemer med netop den form for podcast-levering.

🙅‍♂️ Danske Medier vil have medier fritaget krav til platforme

Et kommende lovforslag skal forpligte sociale platforme til at fjerne ulovligt indhold indenfor 24 timer. Det synes brancheforeningen Danske Medier er en rigtig god idé, men de vil have medierne undtaget.

Del 3: Business

Her kan du læse nogle af ugens historier og tendenser indenfor forretningsudvikling i mediebranchen. Altså det, der handler om at tjene penge.

💡 Kleis Nielsen: Derfor misforstår medier abonnementer

Media Voices Podcast’en har talt med den danske medieekspert:

“But I think it’s fair to say that in a lot of the marketing that we see, when news organisations who are turning to reader revenues are trying to sell subscriptions, that light is very focused on us, and not very focused on the public that we aim and claim to serve.

And they are the ones who have to convince; you don’t need to convince me or journalists that what we do is important, or that we want more people to engage with it and even pay for it. You need to convince the people who aren’t doing it.”

😕 Apples podcast-abonnementer er kommet skidt fra start

The Verge skriver:

“But in the months since Apple Podcasts’ announcement, podcasters say the platform has failed them in various ways. For a company that prides itself on functionality, design, and ease of use, the new backend’s bungled launch is a mess.

Podcasters say Apple Podcasts Connect, which they’re required to use in order to take advantage of subscriptions, has a confusing interface that often leads to user error scenarios that have them pinging Apple at all hours of the day in a panic — one podcaster’s entire show was seemingly archived until Apple stepped in to help and explain what happened.”

😅 Kommende iOS-Safari-design kan angiveligt vælges fra

Gizmodo skriver:

“There’s a lot of neat things coming with iOS 15, but Safari’s redesign was a major disappointment. However, it looks like Apple’s listening to feedback because the sixth iOS 15 beta now gives users the option to bring back the ‘old Safari.'”

😱 Nu sender deepfakes pitches

Wired skriver:

“Some partners at EY, the accounting giant formerly known as Ernst & Young, are now testing a new workplace gimmick for the era of artificial intelligence. They spice up client presentations or routine emails with synthetic talking-head-style video clips starring virtual body doubles of themselves made with AI software—a corporate spin on a technology commonly known as deepfakes.”
