For several years, the prevailing view regarding big tech companies like Alphabet (Google) and Meta (Facebook) has been that they have become too powerful and that governments and regulators need to do something about it. One of the main sticking points has to do with personal dealings that generate monopolistic moats that become so entrenched that they essentially cannot be challenged. There is also a deep concern about user privacy and the use of huge amounts of data like humanity has never seen.

The power that Google, Facebook and a few other companies wield over the information ecosystem, of which they have become the de facto guardians, is troubling. Ultimately, they took over an editorial role that had previously been controlled by media companies, especially news publishers. The confrontation between the media industry and some giants of Silicon Valley has pushed the debate on the power of Big Tech to the fore, largely because of the loss of potential revenue suffered by publishers and absorbed by these firms, but it has fueled a healthy conversation that puts the role of technology in the 21st century under critical scrutiny. Yet, while regulation has advanced in several countries, it seems that we are a long way from knowing what and how to regulate. In Argentina, for example, the aftermath of the assassination attempt on Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has led to calls to stifle hate speech online, but the political actors pushing this have no idea. of what they are talking about, essentially seeking to censor media companies that hold opposing views.

Pressure is mounting on big tech companies largely because of Europe. What started with the EU Copyright Directive – which gave producers of internet journalists an ancillary right that gave value to their content – ​​has now expanded into an all-out antitrust war. Margrethe Vestager, the European Commission’s competition commissioner, is responsible for this onslaught. “Europe is open for business, but there are rules, and that’s for everyone,” she said recently. Wired. “We already had three Google cases, we have another ongoing Google investigation into Google’s ad technology, we already had two Amazon cases, and now we have a third, we have a Facebook case pending and three cases Apple”, she listed. . Alphabet has just suffered a tough setback after the General Court of the European Court of Justice upheld a US$4 billion fine, while Meta was recently fined over US$400 million – a record for violation of European privacy law GDPR. Yet these figures are just drops in the ocean for companies whose sales are several times greater than the GDP of small to medium-sized countries. Alphabet recorded sales of US$260 billion in 2021 (92% of which came from advertising dollars) while Meta took in US$120 billion (of which 97% came from ads).

This debate made its way to the Annual Assembly organized by WADAF, the Argentine media association, in Calafate this year. Diego Garazzi, The Nation, used Newton’s Laws of Motion to draw an analogy to the current situation. First, a body must be set in motion, it will reach a speed proportional to the force applied to it, and it will generate an equal and opposite reaction once it hits another body. Thus, the standoff between Big Tech and the media industry was first sparked by calls for regulation, accelerated and then culminated in a confrontation that brought the Googles of the world to the table. negotiations. The passage of laws forcing negotiations or lawsuits between platforms and media companies in the European Union, Australia and Canada, to name a few, has triggered some agreements, such as the Showcase (Alphabet) and News Tab (Meta) development announcements in several of the countries.

Going forward, it looked like these companies were building working relationships with the media industry where they would start paying for the use of journalistic content, but a storm could be brewing. Few months ago The Wall Street Journal reported that Meta announced to major US publishers that it would cut funding for News Tab amid widespread malaise in the advertising market. This goes hand in hand with a general paradigm shift in global markets due to recessionary trends and a hike in interest rates by major central banks, suggesting the end of easy money and cheap credit. which will certainly affect the profitability of the private sector. Big Tech has been on a spending spree for years, partially interrupted by the 2008 financial crisis – now it seems like it’s time to focus on the bottom line. Already across Latin America, there have been rumbles between media associations and the parent companies of Google and Facebook, which could presage a more widespread shift away from the current stance of throwing some cash at major publishers to keep them at bay.

These companies are more afraid of bad press and potential future legislation than fines. This is why the issue of hate speech goes to the heart of their business models and future projections. The use of algorithms to deliver content has created certain vicious circles that have exacerbated hate speech and led to a rise in extremism and even mass shootings, as mentioned in a previous column about Cristina’s attacker , Fernando Sabbag Montiel, and the QAnon movement in stride. of the Capitol Hill riot in the United States during the last days of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other platforms use a mixture of artificial intelligence and human moderation to limit the proliferation of dangerous content. But it is almost impossible to determine by deduction what hate speech is, as constitutional law expert Carlos Laplacette explained in his speech to the WADAF assembly. Not only that, there seems to be some kind of feedback loop between the spreading of fake news, the upsurge of hate speech clusters, and the call to do something, which almost always results in some sort of body determining what is and what is not allowed. Free speech is always under attack whenever someone can determine what is valid and what is not. So, if major platforms are blamed for content that is distributed and accessed through their products, and are asked to censor certain content or face large fines, they will be in deep trouble. What if they can’t figure out what content to block fast enough? What if they are then accused of violating free speech for this?

The global tech elite is made up of a handful of companies, including Alphabet, Meta, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Alibaba and a few others. (In Latin America we might include Mercado Libre). These companies are hugely profitable and have added incredible value to our lives, but they wield enormous power like never before, from transnational status to control over products that are directly linked to how we make decisions. The stakes are incredibly high, but the current uncertainty ultimately works in favor of preserving the status quo and its inherent benefits.

As senior Russian and Chinese officials announced they had agreed to participate in more joint military exercises, a rumor spread on social media that the Chinese military was allying itself with Russian troops invading the Ukraine.

“A Chinese military convoy is entering Ukraine from Russia,” said several posts appearing on Facebook on September 18.

A video in the messages is grainy and looks like it was taken with a cell phone camera. It shows a line of military vehicles driving down the road and occasionally civilian cars can be seen driving in the opposite direction.

But there is no evidence to support the claim that it shows a Chinese military convoy entering Ukraine.

These posts were flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat fake news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Learn more about our partnership with Facebook owner Meta.)

Because the vehicles in the video are filmed at an angle, it’s hard to see some of the finer details in the footage, but what appear to be Chinese characters are seen on the side of some military vehicles. However, passenger car registration plates do not appear to have the Ukrainian flag on a blue background, which now adorns plates in that country.

The footage appeared online as early as August 29, when it was posted on YouTube. But the account sharing the clip there did not claim it showed a Chinese military convoy entering Ukraine from Russia. On the contrary, the title, translated from Russian to English using Google Translate, reads: “PLA will participate in Vostok 2022 ground exercises.”

PLA stands for People’s Liberation Army, a Chinese military force. On August 17, Reuters reported that Chinese troops would travel to Russia to participate in joint military exercises conducted by the country. China’s Defense Ministry said in a statement at the time that its participation was “unrelated to the current international and regional situation”.

In July, Russia announced that it would hold the “Vostok” (meaning “East”) exercises in the country’s Far East region from August 30 to September 30. 5. It is opposite the border between Russia and Ukraine. The last Vostok drills in 2018 took place with nearly 300,000 troops believed to have been involved, including the Chinese military, according to Reuters.

After a widely covered Sept. 15 meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, Putin said Xi had “questions and concerns” about the situation in Ukraine. The revelation that China had crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border would be international news, yet no credible source makes the claims that appear in these Facebook posts.

In a “60 Minutes” interview that aired on CBS Sept. 18, President Joe Biden said there was “no indication” that China tried to help Russia in its war against Ukraine.

We assess claims that this video shows the Chinese military entering Ukraine to be false.

Facebook users sue Meta, accusing company of iOS tracking via loophole • TechCrunch https://000111.info/facebook-users-sue-meta-accusing-company-of-ios-tracking-via-loophole-techcrunch/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 21:00:00 +0000 https://000111.info/facebook-users-sue-meta-accusing-company-of-ios-tracking-via-loophole-techcrunch/ Apple’s major iOS privacy update last year made it much harder for apps to track user behavior beyond their own borders, but a new lawsuit alleges the parent company of Facebook and Instagram’s Meta continued to spy on a workaround.

Apple’s major iOS privacy update last year made it much harder for apps to track user behavior beyond their own borders, but a new lawsuit alleges the parent company of Facebook and Instagram’s Meta continued to spy on a workaround.

The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California and embedded below, alleges that Meta evaded Apple’s new restrictions by monitoring users through Facebook’s in-app browser, which opens links in the app. The proposed class action lawsuit, first reported by Bloombergcould allow anyone concerned to log in, which in Facebook’s case could mean hundreds of millions of US users.

In the lawsuit, two Facebook users allege that Meta not only violates Apple’s policies, but also violates state and federal privacy laws, including the Wiretapping Act, which has made it illegal to interception of electronic communications without consent. Another similar lawsuit (Mitchell v. Meta Platforms Inc.) was filed last week.

The plaintiffs allege that Meta tracks users’ online activity by directing them to Facebook’s built-in web browser and injecting JavaScript into the sites they visit. This code allows the company to monitor “every interaction with external websites”, including where they type, and what passwords and other text they enter:

Now, even when users do not consent to being tracked, Meta tracks Facebook users’ online activity and communications with external third-party websites by injecting JavaScript code into those sites. When users click on a link in the Facebook app, Meta automatically directs them to the in-app browser it monitors instead of the smartphone’s default browser, without telling users that this is happening or that they are followed.

Apple introduced iOS 14.5 in April last year, dealing a blow to social media companies like Meta that relied on tracking user behavior for advertising purposes. The company cited iOS changes specifically in its winning calls as it prepared investors to adapt to the new normal for its ad targeting business, describing Apple’s privacy changes as a “headwind” that she should overcome.

In a statement emailed to TechCrunch, a spokesperson for Meta said the allegations were “without merit” and the company would defend itself “vigorously.” “We have carefully designed our in-app browser to respect users’ privacy choices, including how data may be used for advertisements,” the spokesperson said.

In the new iOS privacy prompt, Apple asks if a user consents to having their activity tracked “on other companies’ apps and websites.” Users who opt out can reasonably believe they are on an external web browser when they open links in Facebook or Instagram, although the company is likely claiming otherwise.

Felix Krause, security researcher surfaced regarding Facebook and Instagram’s in-app browsers last month and the trial draws heavily on his report. He urged Meta to send users to Safari or another external browser to close the loophole.

“Do what Meta is already doing with WhatsApp: stop modifying third-party websites and use Safari or SFSafariViewController for all third-party websites,” Krause wrote in a blog post. “It’s best for the user and the right thing to do.”

A religious group on Facebook apparently believes that a recently released fashion shoe, the Reebok x Maison Margiela Tabi Decortique, is satanic.

That’s because the sneaker’s toe box is split in two halves, an unconventional look for athletic shoes – which makes the shoe look like an animal’s hoof.

“Reebok’s new sneakers have Baphomet goat feet”, the Facebook page Prophecy News wrote on September 19. “The rulers of this world are increasingly showing openly and clearly who they worship. Be sure to open your eyes and don’t get caught up in their rituals.”

The Tabi Decortique is part of an ongoing collaboration between Reebok, the American footwear and apparel brand owned by Adidas, and Maison Margiela, the French luxury fashion house. The Low Decortique Classic Leather Tabi appeared in early 2022.

The so-called clogs of the shoes – indeed, the unusual split “decortic” in the toe area – are a fashion hallmark of designer John Galliano. Her work with Maison Margiela over the past few seasons has highlighted similar “cutout” style treatments on garments.

“Decortique uses figurative cut shapes to symbolize the gaps in the selected images that we are constantly surrounded by, highlighting identifiable characteristics embedded in our collective memory and stimulating our visual recognition”, fashion site Highsnobiety Explain.

The Reebok x Maison Margiela Classic Leather Tabi Decortique Low has a retail price of $595. The Prophecy News Facebook page is run by a Christian sect called The Remnants.

On his websiteThe Remnants says it is “about a group of individuals living in the Philippines who loved the Lord Jesus above all else. Because we are so hungry for God, we also want people to be saved and to know the Lord Jesus. This site is dedicated solely to the Lord Jesus. Preparing the way for his second coming!”

After a three-year hiatus, the gathering returns at the end of this month – with ‘Bogan Bingo’, ute competitions and a festival stage featuring beloved Australian artists such as The Angels, Jessica Mauboy and Shannon Noll .

Using Facebook’s paid advertising platform and unpaid posts, Deni Ute Muster’s Facebook page has been used to drive ticket sales, provide event updates and as a selling point for its offerings. of sponsorship.

“There’s no monetary value to the reach we’ve had,” organizer Vicky Lowry said of their access to the page’s 124,000 followers, which they’ve spent nearly two decades building.

“The ticket sales we’ve lost, the information we can’t get and the value of the sponsorship – that’s going to affect us going forward.”

When the usual (and seemingly simple) route required by Facebook to restore a disabled account didn’t work, Wade and Lowry began what would become a two-month effort to find someone at Meta to help them.

Loading

They scoured Internet forums, contacted Meta reps through their publicist, sent “dozens” of emails, and even contacted a Meta contact in Nashville.

“Nothing came of it,” Wade said — until this week, when after a request from that masthead, Meta reinstated the page. The company did not explain why previous attempts to contact them resulted in no action.

During the time without the event’s Facebook page, Lowry said sales were down about 1,000 tickets, which at $295 each cost them $300,000.

Meta’s communication stone wall is not unique to the gathering. This masthead received dozens of emails from Facebook users after reporting that Meta mistakenly banned a small business from running ads.

Among the senders were several digital marketing agencies, a technology company in Toronto, Canada, an expat agency in London, and dozens of small businesses. Some have complained about being locked out of their account, others have expressed concern about being permanently banned from their ad accounts. Others had reset their password, but never received a PIN to regain access.

However, the central problem with each of these complaints was the same – they had no meaningful help from Facebook to solve their problem.

One of the Meta reps I spoke to suggested I send in a feedback form two to four times a week for up to six months,” said Sam Parkinson, who has been locked for more than fifteen days on his account, which he uses to run 25 of his clients’ advertising accounts.

“The only human contact I can make on Meta is through the wrong service – but they act like they’re a different company, and there’s no recourse to try to get them to help you get to the right one. place.”

Meta is currently investigating Parkinson’s account at the request of this masthead. However, they did not provide him with anyone to talk to directly.

“We don’t allow pages to violate our trade policies and we take action against pages that do,” a Meta spokesperson said after the masthead asked the company to investigate. a number of pages.

Facebook’s pervasive power and willingness to wield it was widely reported in early 2021, after legislation was introduced in Australia requiring publishers to pay for content on their platforms. In response, Facebook shut down all news sites – but amid those shutdowns, government pages, emergency services and advocacy groups were also removed from the platform.

Parent company Meta described the deletions as “inadvertent”, but internal whistleblower documents that first appeared in The Wall Street Journal indicated that the stops were a deliberate negotiation tactic.

Meta’s central problem, according to academic Daniel Angus, is a fundamental lack of transparency and its selection of the information it chooses to share with the public, businesses and governments.

The site shares its advertising policies, but will not detail the methods it uses to regulate ads and permanently restrict accounts beyond vague descriptions. Advertisers have access to statistics on the performance of their ads, but Facebook will not provide transparency on how this data is collected. In one instance, Facebook was found to have inflated viewer stats on videos.

“They have created market dominance. When Instagram challenged Facebook, what did Meta do? They turned around and bought them,” said Angus, professor of digital communication at Queensland University of Technology. Three million businesses worldwide actively advertise on Facebook, according to Meta.

Getting started on the world’s second-largest online advertising platform (behind Google’s parent company Alphabet and YouTube) is no problem: Meta encourages users with a free program called Facebook Master Plant, which offers in-depth courses on how to “get the most out of Facebook marketing platforms.” Advertising agencies can earn a Meta Business Partner badge, giving them “exclusive access” to support and resources.

Richard Quinn, who runs a digital marketing company Live Switch, is one of these agencies. But despite having access to Facebook agency support and a guarantee that someone from Facebook will get back to you “within 48 hours,” Quinn hasn’t received a response to any of her 20 support requests over the course of last month after opening a customer’s account. limit.

He says one of his clients, whose ad account has been permanently restricted, is losing requests every day.

“[Facebook advertising] was literally their only source of marketing. They are losing tens of thousands of dollars,” Quinn said.

Nicholas Stewart, partner at Dowson Turco Lawyers, says he has represented hundreds of clients trying to recover their accounts online.Credit:Wolter-Peeters

Meta’s one-way communication pattern is an issue Nicholas Stewart, partner at Dowson Turco Lawyers, knows well. His firm represents clients who, after running out of options, seek legal action to restore their Facebook accounts.

“You have your real life, and then you have your social life on Facebook or Instagram. Facebook created that environment and made people addicted,” he said. “But then, when something is wrong in this world, it’s really hard to exercise any right. Imagine in your physical world, if someone said to you “you are not allowed to go out anymore”.

Stewart says they’ve been 100% successful in restoring their clients’ accounts, but acknowledges it’s an expensive process that can take months.

This may now take even longer for future customers. This year, lawyers for the social media giant ordered Stewart’s firm to stop sending relevant documents to a Meta email address they were using. Instead, they said, Stewart was to mail all correspondence to California.

“[This demand] is about Facebook’s deliberate delay – and rejection of the online world – when it comes to bringing legal action against Facebook.

Some standard international service rules require the delivery of formal legal documents to a physical address, known as the Hague Service Convention.

But Stewart says his firm’s correspondence did not require compliance with those rules, because his correspondence did not suggest that legal action was imminent — or even likely.

“The correspondence outlines the circumstances of the customers’ social media opt-outs,” he said. “Our job is to show that our customers are hard-working people of good character who suffer significantly because of Meta’s deactivation algorithm.”

Diving Brief:

  • TikTok over the past year has seen a surge in brand loyalty, according to this year’s report Brand Key Loyalty Leaders Analysis shared with Marketing Dive. Of the 100 companies that made the list, TikTok fell from 21st to 5th place, while Facebook fell 17 places and Instagram dropped six.
  • Topping the list is Apple, which jumped from second place last year and overthrew Amazon, which now sits in second place. Behind it are Domino’s, Disney+ and TikTok.
  • Some brands are new to the list, including Moderna and Pfizer, Paramount+, Tesla, Beyond Meat, and Impossible Foods. The rise and fall of brands on the list represents a pivot in consumer priorities, many of which can be attributed to the pandemic.

Overview of the dive:

This year’s list of Loyalty Leaders in many ways reflects the challenges and opportunities businesses face amid shifting consumer interests due to economic uncertainty and the removal of privacy restrictions. pandemic.

TikTok, which has quickly become a social media darling, saw one of the biggest jumps on the list, up 16 spots from a year earlier. In many ways, TikTok laid the groundwork for both short videos and shoppable content, with others adopting similar features – for example, Facebook recently dropped its live shopping feature in favor of its shorter video format, Reels. YouTube has also incorporated similar features, and Instagram recently got noticed by users for following the Byte-Dance owned platform so closely.

Despite adopting similar models, YouTube fell five places to No. 21, Instagram fell six places to No. 15, and Facebook’s spot on the Loyalty Leaders list fell 17 places. leaving at No. 46. Meta, owner of Instagram and Facebook, experienced its first-ever drop in revenue in the second quarter of this year. Google, owner of YouTube, also fell two places. Alphabet, the parent company of the two, fell short of revenue expectations for the second trimester. Twitter fell nine places to No. 47, reflecting continued challengesincluding his Elon Musk-fueled drama.

As streaming becomes more and more popular, platforms are competing to retain consumers, and some seem to be doing better than others. Netflix fell five spots on last year’s list to No. 8. The Streamer recently started planning their ad-supported platform and in the second quarter, it reported fewer subscriber losses than expected, while losing 970,000 accounts. Highest ranked streamerDisney+, exceeded Wall Street expectations for the second quarter and takes third place on the Loyalty Leaders list, up three spots. Apple TV rose six places from the previous year to rank 14th.

New to the list, Paramount+ took the 51st spot. Launched in 2021, the platform has recently expanded its efforts to attract consumers and has partnered with Walmart as the official streaming platform for its Walmart+ loyalty program.

This is the 14th year that Brand Keys has surveyed brands, which this year totaled 1,624 brands and 142 categories and was conducted in August. Among the categories, retail brands represent almost a quarter (22%) of its loyalty leaders. Behind are food and beverages (16%) and technology (13%).

Many changes to the survey reflect overwhelming consumer fear of a recession. This year, Costco rose 18 places to No. 50 and Sam’s Club rose 16 places to No. 53, representing a possibility that some may find more value buying in bulk for fear of supply shortages. supply and rising costs. Dollar Tree rose 11 places to 63rd place, and fast food chain McDonald’s rose 17 points to 55th place. ), signaling interest in electric vehicles, and Beyond Meat debuted (#82) while Impossible Foods came in at #90.

Pandemic-fueled changes are also visible, with COVID-19 vaccine makers Moderna and Pfizer making the list for the first time at points 39 and 6, respectively — a crushing nod to widespread health concerns. Clorox and Purell fell 41 and 52 places, respectively, a sharp decline that likely correlates to an ease in pandemic restrictions.

Facebook posts shared thousands of times claim US fried chicken chain KFC is handing out free coupons to customers in Indonesia and Malaysia to celebrate its 71st anniversary. However, the promotion is a hoax. The companies that operate KFC in the two Southeast Asian countries have urged consumers to ignore the program, which is not mentioned on the brand’s official communication channels. KFC celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2022, not its 71st.

“To celebrate 71 years of @KFC, we are sending a coupon to those who share and write ‘Love KFC’, reads an Indonesian. Facebook post from September 4, 2022.

“By September 5 at 4 p.m. Each voucher can be used at any KFC to get three FREE buckets of chicken!”

The post was posted by a Facebook page called “KFC Fans” and attracted more than 3,400 shares.

Similar messages promoting the program circulated here and here in two other “KFC Fans” Facebook pages, which were published in mid-August and early September 2022, respectively.

Another one Facebook page called “KFC Malaysia” posted details of the same alleged promotion in August 2022, which has been shared over 400 times.

KFC representatives in Indonesia and Malaysia said the “coupon promotion” was fake.

Warning to consumers

Justinus Dalimin Juwono, director of PT Fast Food Indonesiathe company that operates KFC in Indonesia, said the scheme was a hoax.

“The promotion is not real. It is not from PT Fast Food Indonesia,” he told AFP.

He asked consumers to “ignore” the messages, which he said were not associated with the brand.

There was no record of the alleged promotion to KFC Indonesia website or his official Facebook, instagram, Twitter and Youtube pages.

KFC Malaysia released a similar warning urging customers “not to respond to the promotion and not to share any personal information”.

He said the “KFC Malaysia” Facebook page promoting the hoax was “fake”.

None of the “KFC Fans” or “KFC Malaysia” Facebook pages have a blue verification badge and the accounts are not mentioned on official websites – hallmarks of impostor accounts.

Additionally, KFC opened its first restaurant on August 4, 1952, near Salt Lake CityUtah, making 2022 the company’s 70th anniversary and not its 71st, as the publications claim.

Facebook pages posing as businesses to promote scams typically ask users to share and comment on posts, and sometimes to disclose personal information.

AFP has already debunked fraudulent offers of everything from free donuts and free cashback to gas gift cards and free internet data.

INTERNET usage has increased dramatically over the past two decades and today there are more active users than ever before. Social media websites, in particular, have become extremely popular, with Facebook being the third most visited site in 2021.

Despite the recent rise of Instagram businesses and influencers, Facebook remains the most popular marketing platform — in 2021, 78% of its users said they found new products and services on the platform according to data published by BroadbandSearch.

TikTok, on the other hand, was the most downloaded app last year after its international launch in 2017.

Social media is a huge part of teenage life – new generations are now being born into a digital world where texting and video sharing have largely replaced real-life (or irl, as Gen Z would say) communication. Tracking what interests young people, and especially teenagers, as they access the Internet is a fascinating and useful tool for spotting major trends and even peeking into the future.

In search of answers, the TradingPedia team examines a new report titled “Teenagers, Social Media, and Technology” from the Pew Research Center. It reveals some interesting trends in young people’s preferences, such as the fact that almost all teenagers currently use YouTube, while only 32% say they use Facebook.

The biggest social media platforms

While Facebook remains the top platform of choice among all age groups in the United States and globally, American teens prefer to spend their time primarily on YouTube. The website which launched in 2005 as a video streaming platform is now the most popular social media site among teens in the United States, with 95% saying they have used it and 19 % admitting that they visit it almost constantly.

Next in popularity is TikTok (and its original Chinese version Douyin) which was released in 2016 but only became available globally in 2018 when it merged with Chinese social media platform Musical. ly. Of those polled by the Pew Research Center, 67% say they have used the app and 16% say they use it almost constantly.

The third most popular social media platform among American teens is the video-sharing service Instagram, owned by Meta Platforms (known until recently as Facebook Inc.). Sixty-two percent of respondents are Instagram users, while 10% open or use it almost constantly.

Photo-sharing app Snapchat follows closely, with 59% of teens using it. Fifteen percent say they are there constantly.

Meanwhile, less than a third (32%) of all teens in the survey visit Facebook, and only 2% are there almost constantly. Note that the researchers did not include Facebook’s Messenger as a separate platform in the survey, so it’s likely that these percentages reflect both Facebook and Messenger usage.

The teens were also surveyed on several other social media platforms and results show that 23% used Twitter, 20% used Twitch, 17% were on WhatsApp, 14% used Reddit and only 5% said they had ever used tumblr.

Change in popularity

Things are changing fast in the world of social media, even more so when it comes to young people and their preferences. Facebook was once the most used social media website by teens in the United States, with 71% in 2014.

Data from a similar Pew Research Center survey shows that from 2014 to 2015, Instagram was the second most popular after Facebook with 52% using it, while Snapchat was used by 41% of respondents.

In 2018, when researchers conducted another survey, there was a significant shift in the social media landscape. Facebook’s popularity plummeted and it had become the fourth most used platform with only 51% of teens using it. YouTube had replaced it – 85% of teens in the US said they had used the website. Another interesting fact is that two platforms from the 2014 to 2015 survey were not present in the 2018 stats – Vine and Google+, which were dropped.

Teens on social media

Since TikTok exploded in popularity in 2018 and 2019, there have been concerns that the app and the short video form of the content could affect users’ attention spans and cause addiction.

However, the findings of the Pew Research Center report show that YouTube is used more frequently than TikTok, at least on the face of it. Almost three quarters or 77% of teens visit YouTube at least once a day, compared to 57% who say they are daily users of TikTok. Daily (or more frequent) use of the platforms drops to 51% for Snapchat, 49% for Instagram and 18% for Facebook.

But when we look at how many are using TikTok and Snapchat, we can see that a larger share of users are logging in daily or more frequently. About 86% of those who use both platforms open them every day. And a quarter of users are almost constantly on the apps.

This brings us to the next question: is it hard for teens to stop using social media? Unsurprisingly, the short answer is “yes”, at least for half of the young people who took part in the survey.

More than a third of teens, or 36%, say they spend too much time on social media, while 55% think they’re just having a good time on these platforms. Another 8% think their time on social media is “too little”.

The researchers also asked them how difficult it would be for them to leave social media and 54% of respondents said it would be difficult – it would be “very difficult” for 18% of teenagers and “quite difficult” for 35% . For 20% of teenagers, this task would be “very easy”, while 26% found it “rather easy”.

Additionally, 78% of teens who say they spend too much time on social media admit that it would be difficult for them to stop, with 29% describing it as “very difficult”.

As it drains resources amid slow development, Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has eliminated the Responsible Innovation team responsible for monitoring the ethical issues of its products.

About 20 engineers, ethicists and other professionals made up the team, which worked with product teams across the organization to investigate any potential issues with features and products.

A Facebook spokeswoman told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday that the majority of those people will be transferred to other teams within the company, although their jobs are not guaranteed.

It comes at a time when some digital companies, like Uber, Alphabet, Apple and Twitter, have cut hiring and eliminated contractor roles, while others, like Netflix, have laid off full-time employees.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has warned of cuts, and now the company has disbanded responsible innovation tasked with policing ethical concerns about its products

Meta’s spokesperson said the company will always focus on designing safe and ethical products, but believes those efforts are better distributed among product-specific teams.

The innovation team responsible for Meta was led by Vice President Margaret Gould Stewart.

In June 2021, Stewart wrote in a company blog post that the team was created to “help product teams identify potential harm across a wide range of societal issues and dilemmas”.

“We create standards, tools and guidance for responsible innovation practices in our apps and services,” she added.

The upheaval comes as Meta and other Silicon Valley giants seek cost cuts as inflation and weakening advertising sales hamper growth and reduce profits.

In late July, after Meta reported that its profits were down 36% from a year ago, CEO Mark Zuckerberg warned investors on a conference call: “Many teams are going to shrink so we can move the energy to other areas.”

Zuckerberg also recently said he would weed out underperforming employees with “aggressive performance reviews” as the company braces for a deep economic downturn.

Last month, Meta fired a group of 60 contractors who were allegedly randomly selected by an algorithm.

The contractors were employed through Accenture in their Austin office, a company that struck a deal worth nearly half a billion dollars a year to staff the company with moderation workers. content and business integrity.

The layoffs were announced during a videoconference on Tuesday and Accenture did not immediately offer them new jobs or transfers, according to Business Intern.

And earlier this summer, Meta revamped its entire AI team, including bringing the responsible AI group into its social impact team.

Meta isn’t the only tech giant warning of cost cuts and hinting at potential layoffs.

Earlier this week, Alphabet’s CEO hinted at possible job cuts as he wants the company to become “20% more efficient” after years of rapid hiring.

Sundar Pichai, 50, spoke at the Code conference in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, where he said he wanted to make the tech giant, owner of Google, more efficient due to economic uncertainty caused by inflation high for decades and a slowdown in advertising spending, according to CNBC.

In July, Alphabet said in a regulatory filing that it would slow the pace of hiring for the rest of the year due to decades-high inflation.

On Tuesday, Pichai also told the conference that the company’s productivity has become “slower” after hiring has skyrocketed over the past five years, and that one way to make it more efficient is to merge products. competitors, such as YouTube Music and Google Play Music.

In August, Apple laid off many of its contract recruiters after warnings it would slow hiring and limit spending.

Apple has laid off about 100 contractors responsible for vetting and hiring new employees, people familiar with the matter said. Bloomberg.

In July, Apple reportedly warned staff of plans to slow hiring and spending growth next year in some divisions.

In May, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced plans to lay off 10% of salaried staff, saying he had “a very bad feeling about the economy”.

Netflix, which has seen two straight quarters of net subscriber losses, cut its workforce by 150 in May and another 300 in June.

Alphabet, Google’s parent company, also said last month that it would slow the pace of hiring for the rest of the year.

Amazon has reportedly reduced the ranks of its hourly employees through attrition and recently halted construction of six new office buildings in Bellevue and Nashville.
