The biggest companies no longer advertising on Facebook due to the platform's lack of hate-speech moderation

Civil rights organizations including NAACP, Color of Change, Anti-Defamation League, and Sleeping Giants asked advertisers to stop paying for advertisements on Facebook in the wake of George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers. Since Floyd's death, Facebook has allowed posts in which Trump called protesters "thugs" and suggested violence when he wrote, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts."

Should Your Brand Participate in the Facebook Boycott?

Over the last few days, some large, reputable brands have announced that they plan to withhold all social media advertising on Facebook and Instagram throughout the month of July (some as long as the remainder of 2020). This situation is evolving quickly and as we post this (June 30, 2020), the boycott currently includes media giants such as Coca-Cola, Starbucks, and Verizon to name a few, but have taken a stance to #StopHateForProfit. Unlike the Black Lives Matter movement, which was a gro...

Brand Moves for Friday June 26

Verizon joins the Facebook ad boycott after one of its ads is displayed next to an anti-Semitic conspiracy video

Verizon has pulled its advertising from Facebook, joining a growing list of companies boycotting the social-media firm over its content moderation. A group of six nonprofit organizations started the boycott last week, calling on companies to withdraw their advertising over the spread of hate speech and misinformation on Facebook. On Thursday, June 25, the Anti-Defamation League said it found a Verizon ad next to anti-Semitic video. Verizon's chief media officer said the company was suspending ...

The impact of Covid-19 on Livestreaming adoption

Humans are social creatures. We want to connect and communicate. In my previous post I looked at virtual events in the age of social distancing. Benedict Evans wrote an excellent piece on forced experiments on a large scale as a result of Covid-19. The first mass experiment is remote working. The tools for working from home went from a nice-to-have, to must-have, almost overnight. The second forced experiment, I believe, is consumer entertainment, or how we fill our leisure time outside of ...

What to expect in digital media in 2020

As we start 2020, the media and entertainment sectors are in flux. New technologies are enabling new types of content, streaming platforms in multiple content categories are spending billions in their fight for market share and the interplay between social platforms and media is a central topic of global political debate (to put it lightly). As TechCrunch’s media columnist, I spoke to hundreds of entrepreneurs and executives in North America and Europe last year about the shifts underway across ...

Here's the pitch deck that Silicon Valley startup Crunchbase used to convince investors it could put an end to corporate websites and jobs pages

On Thursday, Silicon Valley startup Crunchbase announced it raised $30 million in Series C funding, led by OMERS Ventures. The startup acquires data about private companies, which it then assembles into easy-to-understand corporate profiles, not unlike what Bloomberg does with public companies. The lack of publicly available information about private companies is a massive opportunity, Crunchbase CEO Jager McConnell told Business Insider. Soon, he said, job boards and corporate websites will b...

Why you don’t want Tumblr sold to exploitative Pornhub

Tumblr has been squandered ever since it was bought for $1.1 billion in 2013 by Yahoo, now part of Verizon Media Group. Without proper strategy or talent, the blogging tool and early meme-sharing network fell into decline while Medium and Instagram soared. Yahoo wrote down Tumblr’s value by $230 million in 2016. Then last year, Verizon evicted Tumblr’s huge and loyal base of porn bloggers, leaving no viable platform for independent adult content creators and curators. Now the Wall Street Journal...

Week 19: Valley of the Gods and Moab, Utah

Life can slip on past you real fast. You can get so caught up in present moment challenges and the future goals that you forget where you have come from. You fail to see all you have achieved because you’re so focused on what is left to come. Hustle replaces humility. Fisher Towers Hike, Moab, Utah I love how travel humbles me. I sit under a starry sky and I can’t help but feel small. I’m no more or less important than the stars. I am but a tiny speck, and yet that speck is part of something...

Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp Go Down

Facebook was down for 22 hours yesterday, and its sister apps Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger also saw extensive outages. It was unusual in the sense that the four applications are each distinct codebases, but perhaps not suprising as all four share the same massive infrastructure. The joke is that global worker productivity shoots up whenever Facebook goes down, and you would think that Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and Messenger are nothing more than distractions in our increasingly digi...

Flickr says all Creative Commons photos are protected from deletion, not just past uploads

Flickr announced today that all Creative Commons images will remain protected on its site – including those uploaded in the past and those that will be added in the future. The news follows Flickr’s November 2018 announcement where it had stated it wouldn’t delete Creative Commons photos already on its service, after switching over to a new business model which put an end to the free terabyte of storage in favor of a new subscription-based service. There had been concern prior to Flickr’s statem...
