According to BrandTotal’s report, titled, “Ad Strategy Snapshot: How Auto Brands Use Paid Social,” Facebook is the clear leader. Instagram is second and YouTube is a close third.

Friend portability is the must-have Facebook regulation

Choice for consumers compels fair treatment by corporations. When people can easily move to a competitor, it creates a natural market dynamic coercing a business to act right. When we can’t, other regulations just leave us trapped with a pig in a fresh coat of lipstick. That’s why as the FTC considers how many billions to fine Facebook or which executives to stick with personal liability or whether to go full-tilt and break up the company, I implore it to consider the root of how Facebook ...

A Facebook cofounder says that Mark Zuckerberg's power is 'unprecedented and un-American' in scathing New York Times op-ed (FB)

'That would look like 70% of traffic is gone': Here are the winners and losers of Google's plans to add privacy tools to Chrome

Google is rolling out changes to its Chrome browser that have some advertisers worried about how they will use data to target users. The move has big implications for how publishers and ad-tech companies make money from web surfers. Given their clout, Google and Facebook could be the biggest winners, while publishers that have first-party data could benefit. Companies that focus on retargeting and attribution could take a hit, and consumers could end up seeing junky ads even as they get more c...

Employees were not happy, with half the company involved in a near mutiny thwarted only when Yusupov was convinced to resign from the role, again. This is the inside story of the meltdown at HQ Trivia, including how one woman's HR complaint became a tug of war for control. Visit Business...

Facebook Could Be the Future of Social Music, But Isn’t Yet [Mark Mulligan]

In an ere where almost everything is billed as "social," streaming music is a surprisingly outlier. Given music's power to bring people together, streaming would seem ripe as a social hub. Facebook could fill that void - without ever launching its own streaming service.  But, as MIDiA's Mark Mulligan points out, so far Facebook + music are more about promise than delivery. By Mark Mulligan of MIDiA from his Music Industry blog Facebook recently secured licensing deals with music r...

Facebook, facing huge criticism over live streaming, says it removed 1.5 million videos of the New Zealand shooting in 24 hours

The video and Tarrant's account was deleted, but the footage proliferated quickly across other tech platforms.

Court Tosses Antitrust Claims That Internet Giants Are Biased Against Conservatives–Freedom Watch v. Google

Apologies if I’m not being appropriately empathetic, but I think lawsuits alleging that Internet giants are biased against conservatives are stupid and counterproductive. They are premised on factually unsupportable assertions of bias, and most of these plaintiffs would enthusiastically cheer such bias so long as it worked against minorities or the libs. Further, there is no viable solution to “fix” bias. “Bias” is intrinsic in every media ecology, so it’s impossible to eradicate. The closest “s...

Judging Facebook's Privacy Shift

Facebook is making a new and stronger commitment to privacy. Last month, the company hired three of its most vociferous critics and installed them in senior technical positions.
