Facebook invests in audio with short-form Soundbites feature, podcast support and a Clubhouse clone

Facebook today officially announced a suite of new audio products — an indication that it’s taking the threat from Clubhouse and other audio platforms more seriously. The company is doing more than just building its own take on Clubhouse, however, it’s also announcing tools that allow podcast creators to share long-form audio, a new Spotify integration for music and a brand-new short-form experience called Soundbites. The Clubhouse clone was probably the most-discussed of the new products ahead ...

Facebook’s decision-review body to take “weeks” longer over Trump ban call

Facebook’s self-styled and handpicked ‘Oversight Board’ will make a decision on whether or not to overturn an indefinite suspension of the account of former president Donald Trump within “weeks”, it said in a brief update statement on the matter today. The high profile case appears to have attracted major public interest, with the FOB tweeting that it’s received more than 9,000 responses so far to its earlier request for public feedback. It added that its commitment to “carefully reviewing all c...

Facebook to test new business discovery features in U.S. News Feed

Facebook announced this morning it will begin testing a new experience for discovering businesses in its News Feed in the U.S. When live, users to tap on topics they’re interested in underneath posts and ads in their News Feed in order to explore related content from businesses. The change comes at a time when Facebook has been arguing how Apple’s App Tracking Transparency update will impact its — a claim many have dismissed as misleading, but nevertheless led some about the impacts to their...

Facebook tests video speed dating events with ‘Sparked’

Facebook confirmed it’s testing a video speed-dating app called Sparked, after the app’s website was spotted by The Verge. Unlike dating app giants such as Tinder, Sparked users don’t swipe on people they like or direct message others. Instead, they cycle through a series of short video dates during an event to make connections with others. The product itself is being developed by Facebook’s internal R&D group, the NPE Team, but had not been officially announced. “Sparked is an early experiment ...

The Most Widely Used Social Media Platforms in the U.S.

Source: Statista While it may be true that Facebook dominates the social media landscape, with 2.6 billion daily users between Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger and its namesake social network, the title of most widely used social media platform in the United States goes to a Silicon Valley rival. According to a new Pew Research Center survey on social media use in 2021, Google-owned YouTube has the largest reach among U.S. adults. According to the survey conducted between January 25 and Febr...

Building A Values-Based Competitive Advantage

Some companies these days realize that the best opportunity is not to drive people to your website, but to push them toward your mindset. People are putting their money where their values are. While shoppers might sometimes be on the fence about which new pair of jeans to buy, if those jeans are sustainably designed, have been recycled, up-cycled, or push some portion of profits toward a cause, it makes it easier for shoppers to lean toward purchase. That phenomenon is not only happening in c...

"United States Legal System" is a misnomer

A common belief, at least in advanced capitalist societies, is that state law is the supreme, unified, hierarchical, and exclusive legal order in society. This is the image of the monistic law state. As I demonstrate in Legal Pluralism Explained: History, Theory, Consequences, this widely held image is descriptively false, theoretically unsound, and normatively problematic. State legal systems are internally pluralistic and coexist with other forms of law that often are more immediately influent...

We Are Not Invisible

On March 16, eight innocent lives were taken in violent shootings in Atlanta. On March 29, many saw a 65-year-old Filipina American woman be brutally assaulted as onlookers stood by and did nothing. Another assault was also captured on video on a New York City subway train as an Asian American man was assaulted to the point of unconsciousness. This occurred on a train with a number of other passengers, also doing nothing. Seeing these acts against other members of the Asian American and Pacific ...

Things Every Car Accident Report Should Have

According to the NSC, the United States is experiencing a drop in the number of motor vehicle accidents. However, these accidents are still prevalent, making up a huge part of injuries and fatalities.  Importantly, it is impossible to file for injury or loss if you fail to report the accident. The police must come to the scene of the accident, inspect it, speak to witness, and gather enough evidence. This information is included in the police report, and it is what you will use to build y...

Who should attend a Global Democracy Summit?

Tarunabh Khaitan For the first time since 2001,  there are more autocracies  in the world than democracies. In 2019, 54% of the world’s population lived in a full-blown autocracy; 35% lived in democracies that were moving in the autocratic direction. This latter category included countries like Brazil, India, Poland, Ukraine, the Philippines, Turkey, and the United States. In just another year, by 2000, 68% of the world was living under authoritarianism, with V-Dem downgrading India —...

The Nuclear Military-Industrial Complex

For the Symposium on Martin J. Sherwin, Gambling with Armageddon: Nuclear Roulette from Hiroshima to the Cuban Missile Crisis (Knopf, 2020). Jeremi Suri If nuclear weapons were the most threatening disease of the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis was the closest near-death experience.

Very good luck” (5).             Sherwin...

The Cuban Missile Crisis Revealed

For the Symposium on Martin J. Sherwin, Gambling with Armageddon: Nuclear Roulette from Hiroshima to the Cuban Missile Crisis (Knopf, 2020). I use this title not only because of the outstanding qualities of Martin Sherwin’s masterful new book Gambling With Armageddon , but because in key respects this is the first book to truly reveal, in a thorough, judicious and analytical way, both the overt and covert story of the crisis as well as its somewhat stunning implications for our understandin...

It’s Official: Nearly Half of Humanity Has Put on Weight During the Pandemic

Facebook launches profile frames that help you encourage friends to get the Covid-19 vaccine

As Covid-19 vaccines are becoming more readily available to larger groups of the U.S. population, Facebook has teamed up with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to launch new Facebook profile frames that allow users to share their support for getting vaccinated with their family and friends. The effort follows a similar launch in the U.K. through a partnership with National Health Services (NHS), which has already resulted ...

JFK and the President as the “Decider”

For the Symposium on Martin J. Sherwin, Gambling with Armageddon: Nuclear Roulette from Hiroshima to the Cuban Missile Crisis (Knopf, 2020).             I begin with an anecdote of sorts:  In October 1962, I was a first-year graduate student at Harvard, in the department of government.  My aspiration at the time was to become a “defense intellectual”; I had written my senior thesis at Duke on aspects of nuclear deterrence theory, and one of my heroes, from afar, was Morton Halperin, who at t...

On being an American patriot

            Steven B. Smith, who teaches political theory at Yale, has just published, with the Yale Press, an interesting book Reclaiming Patriotism in an Age of Extremes.  A quite slender book, it does not purport to offer a comprehensive theory of patriotism across vast times or space; instead, it is basically a heartfelt missive to his fellow Americans (and, perhaps, fellow academics) about what can be said about American patriotism at this particular juncture in our history.  He is clearly...

How Your Small Business Can Go Global

Bill Gates described the Internet as the “town square of a global village”. It’s made the world seem a much smaller place, connecting roughly a third of the total population. And for small businesses it’s opened up huge opportunities. Reaching potential customers in Sweden or South Africa is almost as easy as communicating with those across a (literal) town square. But although national barriers are becoming less important, language barriers remain. The idea that everyone speaks English...

Why DE&I Needs to Be More Than an HR Initiative

We are living in an interesting point in history, a turning point really, where you would be hard-pressed to find an organization that isn’t focusing efforts and resources, at least to some degree, on diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I). Research proves that DE&I is critical to the success, profitability, employee retention, client satisfaction and overall longevity of any organization, and companies everywhere are establishing best practices that go well beyond an EEO statement on a job desc...

“Plain Dumb Luck” and the War Power: A Story of Nuclear Roulette and Its Lessons

For the Symposium on Martin J. Sherwin, Gambling with Armageddon: Nuclear Roulette from Hiroshima to the Cuban Missile Crisis (Knopf, 2020). Amanda L. Tyler Martin Sherwin’s Gambling with Armageddon is a gripping, nail-biting account of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and so much more.   It would be hard to overstate how quickly the book grabs your attention and provides a frightening account of how close the world came to nuclear obliteration in October 1962.   But, if it is even pos...

Facebook gets a C – Startup rates the ‘ethics’ of social media platforms, targets asset managers
