Instagram won’t recommend Reels with a TikTok logo — and it’s unfair

In order to promote short videos created on its own platform, Instagram will stop recommending videos with logos of other apps, including TikTok. As noted by The Verge first, the company published a bunch of new guidelines for creators to get the best results possible on the platform. These tips, posted on Instagram’s creators account, suggested video-makers to use the vertical format, the app’s own sound library, and start a replicable trend. The post also noted that users shouldn’t upload clip...

Cops Are Playing Music While Citizens Are Filming To Trigger Copyright Filters

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Motherboard: Last Friday, a man entered the Beverly Hills police department, only to be treated to a mini DJ set that could potentially get his Instagram account banned. Sennett Devermont was at the department to file a form to obtain body camera footage from an incident in which he received a ticket he felt was unfair.

Here and There

More photos from around one of my favorite Paris neighborhoods, the Marais. I love the shop called Israel full of containers of nuts and dried fruit. Olives and other things for sale there. The Mariages des Freres tea shop is celebrating the Year of the Ox. Delicious looking bread in the Jewish quarter. The symbol for the City of Paris newly painted for the soon to reopen Carnavalet Museum, that is if any thing opens. These are not desserts but cheeses to...

Beverly Hills cops try to weaponize Instagram’s algorithms in failed attempt to thwart live streamers

We don’t know if Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) Sergeant Billy Fair practices Santeria (or owns a crystal ball), but we know he listens to the Sublime song of the same name. We know this because he’s become a viral sensation on Instagram after blasting the 1990’s hit at a citizen in a misguided attempt to get Instagram’s algorithm to take down a live stream due to copyright infringement. Ironically, the officer of the law isn’t very clear on the social media site’s rules. But we’ll get t...

Alan Watts Reads “One of the Greatest Things Carl Jung Ever Wrote” Carl Jung founded the field of analytical psychology more than a century ago, and many reference his insights into the human mind and condition still today. Alan Watts certainly did his bit to keep the Jungian flame alive, whatever the outward differences between a Swiss psychiatrist and an English interpreter of Taoism, Hinduism, and Buddhism, especially of the Zen variety. Both men believed in casting a wide spiritual net, all the better to e...

Regardless of these challenges, many Black-owned businesses are showing resilience. Here are five pieces of advice from inspiring Black ...
