Oversight Board, Facebook’s independent appeals body, goes live

Facebook’s Oversight Board — a court of appeals of sorts for the social media giant — has gone live. Facebook and Instagram users whose content has been taken down can appeal to the Oversight Board (OSB) for independent review, it announced on Thursday. However, users cannot yet flag content that they want taken down from these platforms. The OSB was first proposed in November 2018, after years of Facebook being subject to intense criticism for its lacklustre enforcement of its content moderatio...

The rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes, the Theranos founder whose federal fraud trial is delayed until 2021

Elizabeth Holmes dropped out of Stanford University at 19 to start blood-testing startup Theranos, and grew the company to a valuation of $9 billion.

The danger of “I already pay for Apple News+”

Apple doesn’t care about news, it cares about recurring revenue. That’s why publishers are crazy to jump into bed with Apple News+. They’re rendering their own subscription options unnecessary in exchange for a sliver of what Apple pays out from the mere $10 per month it charges for unlimited reading. The unfathomable platform risk here makes Facebook’s exploitative Instant Articles program seem toothless in comparison. On Facebook, publishers became generic providers of dumb content for t...

Facebook pays teens to install VPN that spies on them

Desperate for data on its competitors, Facebook has been secretly paying people to install a “Facebook Research” VPN that lets the company suck in all of a user’s phone and web activity, similar to Facebook’s Onavo Protect app that Apple banned in June and that was removed in August. Facebook sidesteps the App Store and rewards teenagers and adults to download the Research app and give it root access in what may be a violation of Apple policy so the social network can decrypt and analyze thei...

The facts about Facebook

This is a critical reading of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s article in the WSJ on Thursday, also entitled The Facts About Facebook.  Yes Mark, you’re right; Facebook turns 15 next month. What a long time you’ve been in the social media business! We’re curious as to whether you’ve also been keeping count of how many times you’ve been forced to apologize for breaching people’s trust or, well, otherwise royally messing up over the years. It’s also true you weren’t setting out to build “a...

It's time to stop spreading the myth that Snap is a brilliant products company (SNAP)

Snap reported terrible earnings Tuesday and announced it would redesign the Snapchat app. It also announced a $40 million write-down related to unsold Spectacles. Snap has always been written about as an innovative product company, but has failed to prove that now that it's public. Going into its IPO this spring, the common theme around Snap that it was a company focused on innovative products that would set it apart from other social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Breakfast, Take 2: Are You Eating 4 Meals a Day?

By Rieva Lesonsky You may think that’s an odd question, but apparently many Americans have added a second breakfast to their daily meals. According to an article in The Wall Street Journal, both food manufacturers and restaurants report consumers are grabbing a quick breakfast (pre-workout for some) and then eating a bigger breakfast later in the morning. The U.S. president of Pret A Manger, an international restaurant chain, says it sees a breakfast rush between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. and then an...

Is Instagram Keeping You From Discovering Amazing Designers?

About six months ago, Lisa Williams of Lisa Says Gah, a San Francisco-based online women’s clothing store, signed up for the third-party shopping app Have2Have.It in hopes of streamlining the shopping experience for her customers. And why not? She had over 40,000 followers on Instagram, her stock is limited, and items often sold out quickly. There had to be a better way than posting “link in profile” to sell clothing through the social-media site.Williams was skeptical. First, Have2Have.It char...

Is the Hoopla Over Social Media Marketing the Biggest Myth Ever?

“Social media are not the powerful and persuasive marketing force many companies hoped they would be.” That’s a bold statement, but it comes from premier research company Gallup, which recently surveyed more than 18,000 consumers about the influence of social media on their buying decisions. According to Gallup, “Sixty-two percent said they had no influence at all. Even among millennials (those born after 1980), whom companies often think of as the core social media audience, 48 percent said the...
