Advertisers have stuck with Facebook through years of scandals. Here are 6 things that would need to change for them to abandon it.

Facebook cofounder Chris Hughes called for Facebook to be broken up in a New York Times op-ed. Facebook's domination has been enabled by advertising, which has continued unabated despite years of scandals. That's because Facebook works for them, thanks to its scale and targetability, and advertisers are slow and conservative, experts told Business Insider. That could change if Facebook's targeting continues to be curtailed and advertisers migrate to other platforms, such as Amazon and Google. ...

How to Effectively Retarget Your Email Subscribers on Facebook

The main purpose of your email marketing efforts is to drive subscribers back to your website, whether it’s to read your new blog post or to get them to make a purchase.

Snopes ends their 'debunking false stuff' partnership with Facebook. Here's why.

Fact-checking site Snopes said in a statement Friday they're ending a partnership with Facebook that was intended to help Facebook cut down on the use of its platform to share disinformation and promote accuracy in public discourse. It's over. Poynter's reporting says the reason for the breakup is “bandwidth,” namely Snopes's: Since fact-checkers have to manually enter each false post they flag into a dashboard on the platform, it takes a lot of time for an operation that only employs 16 peo...

Facebook has been paying people $20 per month to get them to install an app that allows 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 that it had pulled the Facebook Research app.  But on Wednesday morning, Apple said that Facebook's enterprise certificates have been revoked — suggesting that its policies were the re...

Facebook has embraced one-time enemy Twitter as its cleans up the Cambridge Analytica mess (FB)

Facebook is becoming a lot more chatty on Twitter, its one-time major rival. It's ironic given Mark Zuckerberg hasn't tweeted from his personal account since 2012, and reportedly once described Twitter as "a clown car that fell into a gold mine." It marks a noticeable change in Facebook's communication style with reporters, trending towards greater openness. It's also a tacit acknowledgement that lots of tech influencers and reporters like to hang out and talk about news on Twitter instead of ...

Music To Work To: The Score of the Movie "Social Network"...

Who out there likes to work to music? When you're working on your laptop, music can either help or hurt your attention.  For me, it's always felt better to have the TV in the background as music has generally interrupted my flow. I've found an exception to that rule - The soundtrack from the movie "The Social Network", created by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.  You remember the movie from 2010 chronicling the rise of Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.  Here's a snippet about this soundtrack, which I'...

People are wildly polarized on whether they trust Facebook

A new Survata survey seen by Business Insider shows that people are massively polarized about whether they trust Facebook or not. That's after months of scandal over Cambridge Analytica's use of Facebook data. The survey showed that Facebook ranked lower on trust than Google, YouTube, and eBay — but higher than Instagram. Survata CEO Chris Kelly said people had stronger feelings about Facebook than about Instagram, whether negative or positive. Facebook has been making a lot of moves to show...

Humorously-Dark Comic Strips by Jake Likes Onions

‘Jake Likes Onions‘ is a hilarious series of four panel comics drawn by cartoonist Jake Thompson. The characters in the strips are full of self-loathing and crippling ennui, which paradoxically makes us empathize with their petty miseries and very-human faults. There is always a twist in the tale coming in the last panel, which is both simultaneously dark and outright funny. His comics must have struck a chord with many, as he has hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram and Facebook. Her...

Industry Icon Ted Dzus: Made In America

Ted Dzus and I go back more than forty years. In that time, he built some pretty hairy companions and all of them exhibited craftsmanship, thought, and even a little whimsy. And this was well before the internet tangle, so we got our news pony express-like from the monthly rags and the advertising copy that accompanied them or we heard it over the land line. There was civility then. Nobody yapped immediate when there was no forum to put it in; there was no specious social media for all that gas ...

Quitting or not, here’s what you can do to be safer with your personal info on #Facebook

Oh my oh my, without getting into politics here, I’m appalled by this whole Facebook and Cambridge Analytica nightmare. If you don’t know what it’s all about, here it is from my viewpoint in a nutshell. A company called Cambridge Analytica used Facebook’s API in 2014 to collect personal information from over 50 million Facebook users. Back in 2014 it was perfectly legal for them to do this, and even within the terms of use for Facebook. Here’s more on that. Then, Cambridge Analytica sold that da...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Mashable: After years of simply forcing news organizations to heel to the almighty algorithm and craft their content for the News Feed, Facebook has added several features in the hopes of winning back the love of publishers. One of the biggest changes to come is subscriptions via Facebook. Here's how it works: Publishers using Instant Articles, Facebook's fast-loading article pages, will be able to have a paywall (certain number of articles per month) or ...

Oregon became the first state to require that employers give workers advance notice of their schedules when Gov. Kate Brown signed a fair scheduling bill into law on Tuesday.The "Fair Work Week" Act guarantees people working for food, hospitality, and retail companies with more than 500 employees notice of their upcoming schedule. It also allows a break of at least 10 hours between shifts (meaning no quick turnarounds to work consecutive closing and opening shifts), and prohibits employers from...

How CEO Evan Spiegel could copy Mark Zuckerberg and save Snap's sinking stock (SNAP)

To save Snap's stock from falling further, CEO Evan Spiegel could turn the tables and copy Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg for once. About five years ago, Facebook was in a similar position as Snap is in now: Its stock had been battered since its red-hot IPO at the beginning of the year, and investors were nervous about big insiders dumping their shares once the post IPO "lock up" on stock selling was lifted. But then CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that he would not sell any of his Facebook shares fo...
