The Truth About You

IN THE January/February 2019 issue of Communication Arts, Ernie Schenck writes about two kinds of truth: authentic and inauthentic. Authentic truth is who you are. Inauthentic truth is who you are when everyone is looking. It’s accepting what the loudest voices around you are saying because you don’t want to look bad. It’s commonplace in politics, but we see it everywhere. It’s pandering. Not leadership. It’s denigrating. Not serving. Inauthentic leadership is selfish. We use it to get somethin...

Facebook is working on a new platform specifically for meme-obsessed teens that's already being described as 'cringey' (FB)

Facebook is quietly building a platform for discovering memes, TechCrunch reports. The platform is called LOL, and will consist of "funny videos and GIF-like clips" that users can vote on and share. However, LOL was described as "cringey" to TechCrunch, and the platform is said to be out of touch with the wants of meme-obsessed teens. In its latest effort to stave off the steady flow of teens leaving its platform, Facebook has been building a dedicated space for users to discover memes and vi...

Facebook ousts hundreds of fake news accounts tied to Russia

Facebook today removed multiple accounts, Pages, groups, and Instagram profiles that were related to Russian networks.

Instagram influencers are so overwhelmed by hackers, they’re hiring hackers of their own to get their accounts back (FB)

Instagram influencers with thousands of followers are getting their accounts hacked and held for ransom.

A look at Birdies, the popular slipper shoe startup that just raised $8 million more from investors

Bianca Gates is a first-generation American, her parents having immigrated to the U.S. from Latin America. As such, she says, after waitressing her way through college at UC Irvine, she was expected to get a safe job with a 401(k) plan and to live with her parents until she was married. Things haven’t gone exactly that way, but one can imagine Gates’s parents feeling pretty satisfied with their daughter’s trajectory nevertheless. The reason: Gates, along with cofounder Marisa Sharkey, are the co...

Squad is the new screensharing chat app everyone will copy

Squad could be the next teen sensation because it makes it easy to do nothing… together. Spending time with friends in the modern age often means just being on your phones next to each other, occasionally showing off something funny you found. Squad lets you do this even while apart, and that way of punctuating video chat might make it the teen girl “third place” like Fortnite is for adolescent boys. With Squad, you fire up a video chat with up to six people, but at any time you can screensha...

Facebook takes down 360 fake pages and accounts run by employees at Russian state-owned news agency Sputnik (FB)

Facebook removed almost 500 pages, accounts, and ads across its core service and Instagram that were connected to Russia and involved in "inauthentic" behaviour. It uncovered two campaigns, one focused on Ukraine, and the other more widely across Eastern Europe.

"The idea that the #10YearChallenge might be a shady astroturfed meme intended to capture innocent user data isn’t so extraordinary, as far as social-media folklore goes."

"There’s a widely held conspiracy theory that Facebook is eavesdropping on conversations through our smartphones — how else, the idea goes, could Facebook serve up advertisements about things I was literally just talking about?...  Facebook doesn’t need to eavesdrop on you: The data it already has and is able to extract continuously... is more than enough....  The breathtaking scope of contemporary surveillance and data-extraction processes doesn’t just make conspiracy theories about astroturfed...

where attention goes, energy flows

So, it appears I have a focus problem.I mentioned in my last post that I’m really working on creating routine — and for the most part, it’s working. I’ve made my bed every day this week. I’ve started my mornings with meditation and a huge glass of water. I’m journaling. I’m getting outside. And the routine is incredibly comforting.However: when I sit to meditate? I think about work. When I go for my hike? I think ab...

The #10YearChallenge Is Harder on Women Than You Think

One of the first internet challenges to go viral this year on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter is #HowHardDidAgingHitYou, or the #10YearChallenge. The challenge requires users to share a photo from 10 years ago side-by-side with a current photo. Millennials and Gen-Zers have participated with gusto - mostly because their decade-old picture is of awkward pubescence or wide-eyed youth, and though they are older, they are still "young." But this activity is likely a lot less fun for older women - ...

Every little bit helps

Quitting Facebook. Renouncing Uber. Avoiding Amazon. There have never been more or greater reasons for turning your back entirely on much of Big Tech. The last few years have brought an endless stream of scandals and unflattering revelations. There aren’t many starry-eyed optimists left who still believe that Silicon Valley is just here to build a better world. We’ve almost all come to accept the fact that Big Tech is here less to help the world and more to devour it. If you’ve reached a s...

Instagram caught selling ads to follower-buying services it banned

Instagram has been earning money from businesses flooding its social network with spam notifications. Instagram hypocritically continues to sell ad space to services that charge clients for fake followers or that automatically follow/unfollow other people to get them to follow the client back. This is despite Instagram reiterating a ban on these businesses in November and threatening the accounts of people who employ them. A TechCrunch investigation initially found 17 services selling fake fo...

While social media marketing has its perks, there are downsides to consider too.
