Del 1: Sociale medier 

Her finder du historier om eller fra de store sociale platforme, der har en enorm rolle at spille i kontakten mellem udgiver/afsender og modtager.

🤨 Meta tillader opfordringer til vold i Ukraine

Fra Platformer:

“On Monday morning, we reached another grim milestone in Russia’s self-inflicted isolation from the broader world: the country banned Meta-owned Instagram, making the platform inaccessible to most of its 80 million users. Today, let’s talk about how we got here — and about the dystopian policy choices that Meta and other platforms will have to make as Vladimir Putin’s war on Ukraine rages on.”

Why Russia Is Saying Goodbye to Instagram

Facebook fjerner misvisende opslag fra russiske ambassader

How war shaped Meta

🛑 Facebook, YouTube og Twitter fjerner Zelenskyj-deepfake

Fra CNN:

“The deepfake spread widely online Wednesday, as noticed earlier by Vice’s Motherboard. In the video, which CNN Business has reviewed, Zelensky appears to stand behind a presidential podium and in front of a backdrop, both of which feature the Ukranian coat of arms. Wearing a green shirt, Zelensky speaks in Ukranian, appearing to tell Ukranians to put down their weapons in the weeks-old war against Russia.”

👨‍👩‍👧 Meta lancerer nye værktøjer til forældre

Fra Social Media Today:

“Meta’s rolling out a new set of parental supervision and control tools for both Instagram and Quest VR, which address key elements of concern with usage and exposure among younger users.”

🕶 Er Meta for tidligt ude med metaverset?

Fra Platformer:

“If Facebook’s core ad business were still thriving, and TikTok weren’t eating away at its user base and cultural relevance, that might not be such an issue. But with the company on the ropes in a variety of ways, any significant delays in Zuckerberg’s vision becoming reality could spell trouble for recruiting, the stock price, and more. All of which will only make building his vision of the metaverse harder. (And his competitors’ lives easier.)”

🕰 Hvorfor kom BBC så sent på TikTok?


“Why did it take a war for BBC News to join TikTok? Speaking to, BBC News digital director Naja Nielsen says is because the broadcaster did not want to spread itself too thin.”

🧑‍💻 Facebook tester nyt desktop-design

Fra Mashable:

“Nearly all of the navigation elements, menus, and settings were moved to the left on the desktop version of the platform, with essentially no navigation on top of the page. I don’t remember whether I opted in for this, but I can’t find a way to roll it back, so this is what the Facebook experience looks like for me right now.”

🤔 Kan crowdsourcing give bedre YouTube-anbefalinger?

Fra VentureBeat:

“According to Le Nguyên Hoang, a scientist at the École Polytechnique Fédérale of Lausan EPFL and one of the cofounders of Tournesol, the goal is to provide a safer, more “benevolent” alternative to YouTube’s recommendations that’s powered by the sway of the crowd.”

“Since the war started, people around the world have been trying to help refugees and the Ukrainian cause. For those with investigative skills like Aeden, who has volunteered for Bellingcat before, that means using their time and effort to analyze material posted on the web by Ukrainians to document possible war crimes, such as bombing civilian buildings or protected spaces like hospitals, and confirm their exact location.”

📷 Zuckerberg: NFT’er på vej til Instagram

Fra Engadget:

“‘We’re working on bringing NFTs to Instagram in the near term,’ he said. He didn’t detail exactly how that would take shape, but suggested people would be able to show off their existing NFTs and potentially mint new ones. ‘I’m not ready to kind of announce exactly what that’s going to be today. But over the next several months, the ability to bring some of your NFTs in, hopefully over time be able to mint things within that environment.'”

Del 2: Digitale tendenser

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

💡 Ny trend: Modulær journalistik


“The uncomfortable truth is that people rarely read past the first few paragraphs of a news article. New AI-powered technology can help us understand how to tell stories so readers pay attention”

📲 Substack vil være platform med ny app

…og Casey Newton skriver om det i sit Platformer-nyhedsbrev, der udkommer på netop Substack:

“I wince at some of the language in the Substack app; I’d never send out a newsletter if I thought it was something your email inbox should be “spared” from. For my favorite newsletters, the reverse is true. My email inbox consists mostly of things I did not ask to receive; when one of my favorite newsletters shows up there, then, I get excited.”

❌ BuzzFeed lukker News-app

Fra BuzzFeed selv:

“The BuzzFeed News app launched back in the summer of 2015, under the leadership of Stacy-Marie Ishmael. The award-winning mobile news team’s mission was to be the ‘smart friend in your pocket,’ and their thoughtful, clearheaded, and transparent approach to news quickly cultivated a loyal following.”

🌍 Europas digitale medielandskab skal kortlægges


“It will now set out on aresearch project into the sustainability of around 1,000 digital-first media organisations across 43 European countries. At the end of the year-long project, SembraMedia will produce profiles of each media organisation in English for an interactive database.”

🎧 Amazon melder sig ind i audiokrigen med ‘Amp’

Fra Protocol:

“Amazon is entering the live-audio wars with a new app called Amp. The app, launching in beta on iOS on Tuesday, is fairly straightforward: It allows people to host their own radio-style show, with access to millions of songs free of charge. When you open the app, Amp will recommend a few live shows you might like. Hosts can take calls, switch between music and talking and generally feel like an old-school DJ.”

🎤 Mofibo indser, at den rette oplæser er vigtig

😢 Mit Nørrebro lukker

Fra MediaWatch:

“Pengene er sluppet op hos lokalmediet om livet på Nørrebro i København, og det giver derfor ikke mening at drive mediet videre, mener redaktør og udgiver Mette Trudsø. Etableringsstøtten fra Medienævnet udløb ved årsskiftet, så mediet lukker nu.”

Idenyt får ny chefredaktør fra lokalt netmedie

😬 Derfor giver clickbait bagslag for lokale medier

Fra New Statesman:

“There is nothing wrong with wanting revenue or wanting to make profits. But to just try to drive traffic from anywhere with crude individual targets is to further hollow out local news, just when local papers need reinforcement. Putting a geographical limit on targets, or prioritising repeat visits, or even registrations, would create better incentives for reporters and surely could be the start of putting papers on a better financial footing, less reliant on the online ad world”

🎧 iOS 15.4 indeholder nye podcasts-funktioner

Fra Apple selv:

Browse by season on show pages. Quickly navigate to a specific season from the show page of any serialized show. […]

Filter episodes by status on show pages. You can also now filter episodes by their status — played, unplayed, downloaded, or saved — from show pages.”

💸 Aller vil løfte digitale annoncer

Fra MediaWatch:

“Mediehuset har droppet sin inhouse kreative produktionsenhed for i stedet at lægge udviklingen af nativeannoncer i hænderne på eksternt bureau i et nyt strategisk samarbejde. Målet er at løfte det digitale annoncesalg, der allerede har overhalet print, fortæller salgsdirektør. “

💵 Matas sælger annoncer via førstepartsdata

Could publishers focused on developing reader revenue come to face the same difficult consumer questions?”

Del 4: Udvikling og tech

🌐 Bliver internettet til “splinternettet”?

📱 Russiske iPhones skal have russiske apps

Fra Wired:

“Alongside questions about language preference and whether to enable Siri, users will see a screen that prompts them to install a list of apps from Russian developers.

😳 Rusland truede Google og Apple

Fra The Washington Post:

“Russian agents came to the home of Google’s top executive in Moscow to deliver a frightening ultimatum last September: take down an app that had drawn the ire of Russian President Vladimir Putin within 24 hours or be taken to prison.”

😱 Invasionen af Ukraine gør chip-manglen endnu værre

Fra Gizmodo:
