Facebook analysts are sounding off on executive turnover, privacy, and regulation (FB)

Facebook shares fell Monday after a handful of Wall Street analysts expressed concern over the company's recent management changes as well as regulation- and privacy-related uncertainty. Needham downgraded its rating from "buy" to "hold," pointing in part to violent images of the New Zealand shooting uploaded to the site. Bank of America Merrill Lynch lowered its price target, citing the possible "revenue impact of a more privacy centric platform." Watch Facebook trade live. Facebook shares ...

Let’s Talk About the Self-Made Billionaire Kylie Jenner

Last week Forbes published what has become its second annual clickbait attempt. It was clearly success and I’m upset with myself for continuing to give them attention, even if it’s negative attention. Trust me though, there’s a good reason I’m writing about this. Of course, I’m talking about how Forbes is labeling Kylie Jenner as the youngest self-made billionaire. I think most people look at “self-made billionaire” and laugh for reasons that I hope are obvious. Her sister, Kim Kardashian, a...

Mark Zuckerberg says his vision to divide Facebook's products in 2 could put its $56 billion business model at risk

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has published a 3,200-word plan to pivot to privacy. His vision is to split Facebook's product in two, creating both public and private spaces for users. That would limit the ways Facebook could gather the user information on which its $55.8 billion advertising business model relies. Zuckerberg knows this — but has answers for any jittery investors. It's almost a year to the day since Christopher Wylie blew the whistle on Facebook's giant Cambridge Analytica data ...

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg published a 3,200-word plan to pivot to privacy. His vision is to split Facebook in two, creating a public and a private space for users. It will mean there are fewer ways for Facebook to gather the user information on which its $55.8 billion advertising business model relies.

Zuckerberg wants messages to auto-expire to make Facebook a “living room”

On feed-based “broader social networks, where people can accumulate friends or followers until the services feel more public . . . it feels more like a town square than a more intimate space like a living room” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained in a blog post today. With messaging, groups, and ephemeral stories as the fastest growing social features, Zuckerberg laid out why he’s rethinking Facebook as a private living room where people can be comfortable being themselves without fear ...

Facebook admits 18% of Research spyware users were teens, not

Facebook has changed its story after initially trying to downplay how it targeted teens with its Research program that a TechCrunch investigation revealed was paying them gift cards to monitor all their mobile app usage and browser traffic. “Less than 5 percent of the people who chose to participate in this market research program were teens” a Facebook spokesperson told TechCrunch and many other news outlets in a damage control effort 7 hours after we published our report on January 29th.

Mark Zuckerberg said he doesn't want 'a camera in everyone’s living room,' but seemed to forget that Facebook sells a camera that goes in living rooms (FB)

Mark Zuckerberg recently spoke with Harvard Law professor Jonathan Zittrain as part of his New Year's resolution to host more open dialogues about the impact of tech on society.  During the conversation, Zuckerberg said: "W e definitely don’t want a society where there’s a camera in everyone’s living room." In turn, Zittrain pointed out that Facebook actually sells a camera-equipped device for the living room — Facebook Portal, its smart speaker with video calling. Reactions to Facebook's...

Instagram’s fundraiser stickers could lure credit card numbers

Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed that commerce is a huge part of the 2019 roadmap for Facebook’s family of apps. But before people can easily buy things from Instagram etc, Facebook needs their credit card info on file. That’s a potentially lucrative side effect of Instagram’s plan to launch a Fundraiser sticker in 2019. Facebook’s own Donate buttons have raised $1 billion, and bringing them to Instagram’s 1 billion users could do a lot of good while furthering Facebook’s commerce strategy. ...

Is Europe closing in on an antitrust fix for surveillance technologists?

The German Federal Cartel Office’s decision to order Facebook to change how it processes users’ personal data this week is a sign the antitrust tide could at last be turning against platform power. One European Commission source we spoke to, who was commenting in a personal capacity, described it as “clearly pioneering” and “a big deal”, even without Facebook being fined a dime. The FCO’s decision instead bans the social network from linking user data across different platforms it owns, unles...

German antitrust office limits Facebook’s data-gathering

A lengthy antitrust probe into how Facebook gathers data on users has resulted in Germany’s competition watchdog banning the social network giant from combining data on users across its own suite of social platforms without their consent. The investigation of Facebook data-gathering practices began in March 2016. The decision by Germany’s Federal Cartel Office, , also prohibits Facebook from gathering data on users from third party websites — such as via tracking pixels and social plug-ins —...

Facebook warned over privacy risks of merging messaging platforms

Facebook’s lead data protection regulator in Europe has asked the company for an “urgent briefing” regarding plans to integrate the underlying infrastructure of its three social messaging platforms.

The real lesson of Facebook's Apple dust-up shows why Zuckerberg's 'hacker way' is even more dangerous than we thought (AAPL, FB)

Facebook's dispute with Apple this week illustrated that the social-networking company doesn't feel accountable to anyone. Facebook defied Apple's rules regarding both apps that monitor users' activities on their phones and apps that can be distributed through its enterprise channel, despite Apple's substantial power of the company. Regulators trying to figure out what to do about Facebook should study the incident closely, because it shows how immune the company feels to consequences for cros...

Mark Zuckerberg: Facebook won't merge the backends of WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram until at least 2020

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on an earnings call that the planned integration of Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram direct messages won't happen until 2020 at the earliest. He laid particular emphasis on rolling out end-to-end encryption on the new amalgamated service, which is currently a big WhatsApp's selling point. Facebook bought WhatsApp in 2014, and its cofounders left in the past two years reportedly after clashing with Facebook executives over user privacy. Mark Zuckerb...

Facebook and Apple are arguing over who banned a Facebook app that paid people $20 a month for complete access to their phones (AAPL, FB)

A report Tuesday indicated Facebook had been paying people $20 a month to get them to install an app that allowed Facebook to collect a ton of data off of their phones. Facebook installed the app on people's iPhones using an Apple program that was designed for big companies to distribute internal software. On Tuesday night, Facebook said it had pulled the Facebook Research app. But on Wednesday morning, Apple said Facebook's enterprise certificates had been revoked — suggesting that its polici...

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...

Facebook's massive engineering overhaul will have a wide-reaching impact that goes far beyond how its apps are used

Facebook recently announced a plan to unite the back-end technology that runs Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp. The overhaul will have a wide-reaching impact on Facebook's business, users, and overall privacy. Facebook’s decision to unite the technical guts of its three giant messaging services could not only cement its dominance of instant messaging but also help fend off future break-up attempts by antitrust cops. Why it matters:   Uniting the back-end technology that runs Insta...

As Clegg appears in Brussels, Facebook tightens controls on political ads

Zuckerberg to integrate WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger: New York Times

Facebook said it is working on adding end-to-end encryption, which protects messages from being viewed by anyone except the participants in a conversation, to more of its messaging products, and considering ways to make it easier for users to connect across networks. Integrating the messaging services could make it harder for antitrust regulators to break up Facebook by undoing its acquisitions of WhatsApp and Instagram, said Sam Weinstein, a professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.

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...
