A note from the Carolina Journal editors:

If you looked for Carolina Journal on Facebook, you won’t find us.

For more than a week, CJ’s Facebook page has been deactivated. We’re working with the platform to figure out why and how to get us back up and running with all the media coverage, opinion pieces, and analysis you know and trust.

We’ll keep our readers updated on our communications with Facebook and let you know what we find out. For now, you can find all of Carolina Journal’s unique and powerful coverage on the John Locke Foundation Facebook pageand on our own Twitter and instagram.

For this week’s critical primary election, we will be streaming the results and analysis live on the Carolina Journal YouTube Channel covering the event in partnership with the North Carolina News Network.

Thank you for your support of the Carolina Journal. We are a nonprofit media outlet covering public policy from a freedom and market perspective. Without our readers and advocates, we wouldn’t be able to shine a light on the big stories and behind-the-scenes coverage of North Carolina’s public policy landscape.

Sincerely,

Donna King

Update: After a week, the Carolina Journal Facebook page was finally restored at 2:40 a.m. EST (May 16).

I’m in jail on Facebook for hate speech https://000111.info/im-in-jail-on-facebook-for-hate-speech/ Sat, 14 May 2022 14:20:25 +0000 https://000111.info/im-in-jail-on-facebook-for-hate-speech/ Yesterday I was thrown in jail on Facebook for hate speech.

Yesterday I was thrown in jail on Facebook for hate speech. I am currently serving a 3 day sentence (6 days for any group activity). But here’s the thing: the hate speech was AGAINST me, not OF me.

Around 8:00am PST, a rando slipped into my DMs and sent me the following:

In case you weren’t aware (I also had to look it up on Urban Dictionary), a aunt is an Australian slur for homosexuals or otherwise “effeminate”. Since I’m bi, it’s an insult directed at me.

After a good laugh, I shared a screenshot of this with my nearly 7,000 Facebook followers. I also blocked and reported this homophobe. Within an hour, Facebook had locked my account for making “hate speech”. Immediately I challenged the decision and to my surprise within 40 minutes they agreed and apologized.

However, even though they apologized and explained how they “did it wrong”, I’m still in jail on Facebook. My account is restricted for another 2 days and I can’t engage with the groups I help manage for another 5 days. For almost a month, the algorithm will hide my posts in the groups I’m in.

TO BE CALLED A HOMOPHOBIC OFFENSE!!!

Now I realize a lot of this is algorithm based. But after acknowledging that they were wrong, it seems to me that a real human interacted with this message. That’s why they reversed the algorithmic decision. And yet, I’m still stuck. I’ve been harassed for being openly bisexual, called the Australian equivalent of af*gg*t, and punished by the social media platform that’s supposed to be responsible for weeding out this kind of talk.

Well, in this case, and I suspect in many others, they were horribly wrong. Will they care? No. Will they hear the 4 complaints I’ve made since yesterday? No. Will they change their habits? No. Because they make a ton of money and in today’s society that’s what ultimately matters. They’ll talk a big game about LGBTQ inclusion, but at the end of the day, they’ll continually get it wrong.

So if you follow me on Facebook, bear with me. I can’t post, comment, or even like other people’s comments. Because I was harassed and Facebook thought I had to sit on a timeout because another Christian decided to spread more of his Christian message love hate.


If you want to know me better, do not hesitate to follow me on social networks. I am quite active on all platforms:

Facebook

Twitter

instagram

Youtube

Also, if you’ve been digging my work here and want me to be able to keep writing as close as humanly possible to writing full-time, please take a look at my Patreon page at www.patreon.com/mjdistefano. Even $1 a month helps a lot!!!

A new blog post by Stéphane Kasriel, head of fintech at Meta, says that Facebook Pay is adopting the Meta brand. Coming Soon Meta Pay – refresh aims to improve the online payment experience.

Meta is also exploring how to facilitate payment processing within the Metaverse. Kasriel said the company is in the “very early stages” of creating a unique wallet experience for users. It would explore how you carry your identity across the metaverse, store digital goods, and how you can easily pay with any method you want.

The company sees Meta Pay as an opportunity “to bring more people into the financial system.” With 1 billion people in the world without any form of identification, Meta seeks to solve this problem; this could allow more users to support themselves or even start their own businesses.

Meta Pay will also seek to help businesses and creators better serve their audiences. With the potential for expanding business opportunities in the metaverse, Meta Pay can make this possible. He said there will be more to look forward to in this area throughout the year.

Our way forward is grounded in our mission to empower everyone, everywhere to access the global financial system to accelerate financial inclusion and economic empowerment. Designing products and infrastructure with the Metaverse in mind today will help facilitate innovation that provides greater access and real cost savings – even before the Metaverse becomes mainstream. Now is the time to lay the foundations for the future. Because once that foundation is in place, the potential of the metaverse, and where it can take fintech next, will be limitless.

Facebook, YouTube and TikTok asked by four House committee chairs to archive war crimes evidence https://000111.info/facebook-youtube-and-tiktok-asked-by-four-house-committee-chairs-to-archive-war-crimes-evidence/ Thu, 12 May 2022 17:11:42 +0000 https://000111.info/facebook-youtube-and-tiktok-asked-by-four-house-committee-chairs-to-archive-war-crimes-evidence/ On Thursday, four high-ranking congressional Democrats sent formal demands to the CEOs of YouTube, TikTok, Twitter and Facebook’s parent company Meta, asking them to archive content that could be used as evidence of Russian war crimes in Ukraine. “We write to encourage Meta to take steps to preserve and archive content shared on its platforms […]]]>

On Thursday, four high-ranking congressional Democrats sent formal demands to the CEOs of YouTube, TikTok, Twitter and Facebook’s parent company Meta, asking them to archive content that could be used as evidence of Russian war crimes in Ukraine.

“We write to encourage Meta to take steps to preserve and archive content shared on its platforms that could potentially be used as evidence as the U.S. government and international human rights and accountability monitors investigate the crimes. war crimes, crimes against humanity and other atrocities in Ukraine,” said the letter sent to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The letters were signed by Rep. Carolyn Maloney, DN.Y., chair of the oversight committee; Rep. Gregory Meeks, DN.Y., chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee; Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., chair of the National Security Subcommittee; and Representative William Keating, D-Mass, Chair of the Subcommittee on Europe, Energy, Environment and Cyber.

They specifically ask social media companies “to flag or flag content as containing potential evidence of war crimes and other atrocities.”

YouTube, TikTok, Twitter and Facebook did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The request comes as evidence of potential Russian war crimes continues to pile up on social media. On Wednesday, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine tried a Russian soldier for war crimes for the first time since the invasion began in February — the lawsuits were announced on Facebook.

Although letters from lawmakers lack the subpoena power that would allow them to request law enforcement, social media companies have always complied with requests like this.

Last week, Facebook’s automated systems briefly blocked hashtags linked to civilian deaths in the Ukrainian town of Bucha. Meta spokesperson Andy Stone told Euronews that the company “acted quickly to unblock the hashtags” after realizing the flaw in their automated systems.

The letters to tech companies note that while social networks may have “rightly implemented graphic content policies to protect their users,” an archive of images is needed for possible future war crimes trials.

“We are concerned that the automated systems and processes that social media platforms often use to remove graphic and violent posts could lead to the loss of important content containing evidence of potential human rights abuses and war crimes” , we read in the letters.

Letters quoting a 2021 report from the University of California at the Berkeley Center for Human Rights which revealed that human rights investigators are “increasingly losing the race to identify and preserve information that may have legitimate human rights and historical value before it is deleted”, and implore companies to create “digital lockers” to securely store evidence of potential war crimes.

A report by the nonprofit Institute for Strategic Dialogue noted that conspiracy theories questioning the existence of the Bucha massacre were shared more in the second week of April on Facebook than posts claiming the massacre actually took place.

The congressional letters also called for additional measures from tech companies, including insisting that social networks “archive and preserve any content related to the war in Ukraine that may provide evidence of war crimes or human rights abuses.” man” and “engage and coordinate with the international community”. human rights monitors and civil society organizations examining human rights violations in Ukraine.

“Images and videos of indiscriminate killings and other unspeakable violence are widely shared on social media platforms, exposing disinformation being pushed by the Russian government and creating a historical record that could be key to ensuring those responsible are brought to justice. justice,” Maloney said in an emailed statement.

“It is essential that the companies operating these platforms find a way to maintain a safe environment for their users, while preserving content that could potentially be used as evidence of war crimes by Russian forces.”

Lynch called the demands an important step to “ensure that President Putin and his enablers are held accountable for the atrocities that Russian forces have committed against the people of Ukraine.”

“Given the tension social media companies face between removing material that violates their graphic content policies and preserving evidence that could be used in future war crimes prosecutions, it is incumbent upon these platforms to start thinking now, not later, about how they can ensure that content isn’t lost forever once it’s deleted,” Lynch said in an emailed statement.

5 tips to make your Facebook and Instagram reels stand out https://000111.info/5-tips-to-make-your-facebook-and-instagram-reels-stand-out/ Wed, 11 May 2022 12:00:00 +0000 https://000111.info/5-tips-to-make-your-facebook-and-instagram-reels-stand-out/ Until very recently, vertical video was frowned upon!

Until very recently, vertical video was frowned upon! Landscape video players were the norm, from TV screens to YouTube. This would cause vertical images to display awkwardly and only take up a small space in the center of the player.

However, with the rise of Instagram and Facebook Reels, and mobile video consumption, vertical video is becoming increasingly popular.

Shooting vertically will give you more control over what appears on screen and allow you to fill the entire frame, for a better viewing experience.

  • Get creative with transitions

Reels on Instagram and Facebook have built-in editing tools that make it really easy!

Some transition skills used by our favorite content creators in their reels are simply amazing! Plus, these reels really make us wonder how exactly they’re made since the shots look so smooth and easy to do.

Screen tapping, for example, is a popular transition that focuses on tapping or touching the screen and changing your hold after moving your hand backwards. Lots of makeup artists use it!

  • Use effects, stickers and texts

The difference between dull visual content and attractive content usually involves the use of effects. That’s why Facebook and Instagram offer so many effects that are an incredibly easy way to enhance your content in seconds.

For example, you can use the heart-shaped sticker for a relevant part and another sticker for a particular segment or an entire reel. This is great because one can add multiple stickers and schedule them to appear only at chosen time intervals.

Using trending songs for Facebook and Instagram Reels can help you get more views. Here’s how:

Step 1. Find the reel that contains the music you want to use.

Step 2. Tap the song name at the bottom of the reel.

Step 3. Then you can browse reels with the same song or directly click Use Audio and Create Reel.

Step 4. Now you can save your Reel with trending song.

  • Use golden hours and blue hours for perfect lighting

There are four times a day when the light is ideal for taking photos/videos outdoors, these are the golden hours and the blue hours.

They occur in the hour before sunrise (blue) and the hour after (golden) and the reverse in the evening, one hour before sunset (golden) and the hour after (blue).

Natural light at these times is ideal for photography because of the relationship between the position of the sun and the distance to your subject.

During sunrise and sunset, it’s closer to the subject, and it’s also moving through the atmosphere at a much lower angle than usual, producing a soft, diffused light.

This type of light works well for content creators. It does not create harsh shadows or exaggerated highlights. The golden hour also casts a warm color temperature illuminating the subject quite flatteringly.

Last April, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) returned to television and computer screens with dramatic Ramadan programming. In separate multi-part series, the shows aim to drum up support for sanctioned terrorist groups with scenes of daring prison breaks and murders of Israeli citizens.

The series were produced by Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas) and Al Quds Today TV (JIP), and posted on Facebook and YouTube.

These series continue and expand the use of television programs broadcast during the month of Ramadan to promote violence and glorify terrorist tactics against Israel, following the Ramadan 2021 broadcast of the series “Milad Al Fajr(“Birth of Dawn”) by Al Quds Today TV and PIJ.

To reach a wide range of audiences, terrorism-affiliated media continued to use social media to promote and broadcast episodes of these programs. Social media companies should be careful about using their platforms to disseminate content from sanctioned violent extremist groups and their media outlets.

Gilboa Prison Escape

In a 24-episode series produced by PIJ-affiliated Al-Quds Today TV, “Shara Nasr Gilboa” (“Gilboa Victory Sign”) depicts the tunnel escape of six Hamas and PIJ militants from Israeli prison in Gilboa in September 2021. In Several Episodes Seen by Kharon, the series compares the tunnels used for prisoner escape to the underground tunnel networks used by Hamas in Gaza to store weapons, move weapons and militants, and carry out attacks on inside Israeli territory.




(Left) Al-Quds Today TV held an award ceremony for the cast and crew of the Shara Nasr Giloba series attended by PIJ leaders. (Right) Walid Al-Qateti, a PIJ leader, was present and presented the prizes.

Other episodes describe the story of the six prisoners who carried out terrorist attacks on Israeli military convoys and kidnappings of Israeli civilians. In one episode, one of the prisoners – PIJ activist Ayham Nayef Kamamji – who was convicted for the abduction and murder of Israeli citizen Eliyahu Asheri, is depicted abducting and murdering an Israeli citizen.

The PIJ was designated in 1997 by the US State Department as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, and the European Union, United Kingdom and Canada have also imposed sanctions on the PIJ since the early 2000s.




The author of the “Shara Nasr Giloba” series was an official of the Media Committee of the Islamic Federation of Professional Unions, a PIJ union, according to a November 2020 article by Al Quds Today TV. The PIJ, the War Media Team for the Al-Quds Brigades, the PIJ Armed Wing and the PIJ-affiliated charity Muhjat Al-Quds Foundation are acknowledged by name for their contributions to the credits of the series

Freedom by “the fist”

“Qabdat Al-Ahrar,” or “The Fist of the Free Men,” is a 30-episode series broadcast by Hamas and centered on the November 2018 clashes in Gaza between Hamas and Israel. More than the JIP program, the Qabdat al-Ahrar series was a clear attempt to influence popular opinion in favor of the Hamas leadership both in Gaza and abroad. Hamas media promoted the series, stressing “the value of resistance in the face of occupying forces and the role of resistance leaders abroad in supplying the resistance with military and financial resources”.

The producer of the series “Qabdat al-Ahrar” is Al-Aqsa TV, a television channel that the United States Department of the Treasury appointed in March 2010 for being financed and controlled by Hamas. The US government condemned Al-Aqsa TV for broadcasting “programs and music videos designed to recruit children to become armed Hamas fighters and suicide bombers when they reach adulthood”.

In addition to Al Aqsa TV, the Qabdat Al-Ahrar series was broadcast in Lebanon via Hezbollah-controlled Al Manar TV and other TV channels in Algeria and Jordan, as well as a language channel Arabic in Turkey.

Connect to Facebook, Stream to Youtube

To ensure that fans around the world can watch his series Ramadan, the production company behind the series released entire episodes of “Shara Nasr Gilboa” on its Youtube channel and his Facebook pagewhich remains active as of the date of this publication.

“Qabdat Al-Ahrar” has not been officially distributed on social media by the production companies, but followers of the series have posted entire episodes on personal social media accounts.

TikTok music video posts “Shara Nasr Gilboa” and Qabdat Al-Ahrar” were numerous.




TikTok clips with the hashtags #Shara_Nasr_Giloba_Series, #Shara_Nasr_Giloba, #Qabdat_Al-Ahrar and #Qabdat_Al-Ahrar_Series in Arabic

Social media platforms should be alert to possible violations of their policies against violent extremist content when posting such programs, and the need for continued vigilance to find and block such content. YouTube has removed an episode of “Shara Nasr Gilboa”, based on media reports and a video placeholder by Middle Town Media.




Middle Town Media’s announcement on YouTube that one of its episodes has been taken down by YouTube: “Dear subscribers. . please note that the YouTube platform has banned the publication of the fourth episode of the #SharaNasrGilboa series. We invite you to follow the episode via the link provided in the description box. You can watch the series on Al-Quds channel every day at 10 p.m. Jerusalem time, frequency 10873 vertically – Nilesat.

Episode 4 featured the execution of an Israeli civilian and YouTube blocked the episode on Middle Town Media’s channel. However, Middle Town Media announced in their placeholder video that viewers could access the episode via an alternative link to an external website, demonstrating the risk that violent extremist content could be reposted or moved outside of the platform while using the platform for advertising purposes.

Facebook is testing a new feature where users can quickly stay up to date on others’ activities on the platform through a new Notifications tab.

This new addition to the interface attempts to combine recent posts with stories, which is Meta’s equivalent of smashing its miniatures together. This metaphor works in two ways because action figures are also tools that someone else built and you decided to use for yourself. We are generally more accepting of children calling plush toys their own since they are children and adults have paid for them. Pretty sure, I don’t recall Meta even owing Snapchat a dime or dime for Stories, despite that being a feature Facebook and Instagram rely heavily on. But maybe that’s just me: after all, social media features aren’t copyrighted in any way. If Vine has made shorts, that doesn’t mean TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube can’t take advantage of the same concept.

Either way, Facebook wants users to be able to follow their friends, as do third-party advertisers and governments that follow the platform’s community. Alright, I promise this is my last shot at Meta for this whole article. Instead of encountering messages in their timeline, which will continue to occur on first sight, users can choose to catch up with their affected friends by clicking on their profile in the Notifications tab. Profiles will be presented in the same way as in the Stories tab: circular prints of the user’s profile picture will appear, with users able to scroll through them by swiping from right to left or vice versa. Clicking or tapping on the image will then reveal the user’s most recent posts.

Screenshots posted by a researcher and journalist on social media Matt Navarre reveal space for more than one message to also be presented; perhaps a user’s recent posts will be displayed in order (in time) or by engagement and popularity. Either way, the feature seems useful enough as it lets users skip scrolling through a number of irrelevant messages in order to get to the friends, family, and loved ones they actually care about. Maybe that sounds cold to me, but here’s the thing: if an entire generation of people would rather ghost themselves over texts than reply, maybe such a feature isn’t a bad thing. Also, hey, I didn’t specify which generation. It’s up to you to decide.

  • TikTok, whose explosive growth has put Facebook parent Meta under scrutiny, was introduced to advertisers at IAB NewFronts on Wednesday.
  • It’s becoming a staple for advertisers, threatening to eclipse Snap and Instagram with its Gen Z appeal.
  • Advertisers explained what the app does right to get their budget and where it needs to go next.

TikTok is the fastest growing social media platform and it threatens everyone in its path, from Meta and Snap to YouTube and even linear TV networks, as brands flock to the ByteDance owned app from social, digital and traditional budgets.

Insider information predicts that TikTok’s ad revenue will triple to nearly $12 billion this year, surpassing Twitter and Snapchat combined and catching up with YouTube by 2024.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen another platform get this much traction since Facebook joined,” said Toni Box, senior vice president of social media at ad agency Assembly.

TikTok is not only popular with its 1 billion monthly active users, but influential – when the war in Ukraine started, the White House informed the TikTok stars of the situation, knowing that young people were receiving updates on the platform.

It has endeared itself to advertisers by expanding into e-commerce through TikTok Shopping, a marketplace that directly connects brands and influencers; and in partnership with providers such as DoubleVerify, Shopify and OpenSlate.

ICT Tac announced Wednesday its latest advertising product, TikTok Pulse, which allows advertisers to appear around the main content of its “For You” feed, described as the top 4% of all videos on TikTok.

Sandie Hawkins, managing director of North America and global commerce solutions, said at TikTok’s NewFronts presentation that advertisers can run ads on the top 4% of content across 12 categories, including fashion, cars and games. She said it can be purchased through a TikTok Ads Manager at a flat rate using TikTok’s brand safety filters and third-party verification tools.

TikTok has also taken on rivals like Instagram with features like its own form of Stories, allowing users to post videos that disappear after 24 hours. Ad buyers believe it could also make for a bigger game for viewers, seeing it break into YouTube territory with longer form video content.

“Not only will this help solidify their share of younger viewers away from traditional broadcasting, but it will draw older users to the platform to diversify their age cohorts,” said Katie Price Ross, Director of Activation to the independent media agency Curiosity. “As more advertisers divert their spending away from TV and channel it into social media, this will cement TikTok’s place in the media plans.”

TikTok focused much of its NewFronts presentation on creators and the opportunities they present for brands. For example, the platform said that brands that work with TikTok creators increase brand likeability and brand recommendations by an average of 26% and 22%, respectively.

Ad buyers are also looking to TikTok to expand its shopping features.

“TikTok will likely continue to explore the #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt effect and demonstrate how e-commerce can be integrated within the platform,” said Ross, whose clients like Brooks Running and FreshDirect have seen their sales grow through at TikTok Shopping.

Granted, TikTok’s ad business still pales in comparison to Meta, with $115 billion in ad revenue in 2021; and to a lesser extent, YouTube, with around $29 billion.

As a young platform, it needs to catch up in measurement and targeting capabilities to earn significant ad dollars. Advertisers want the app to better link engagement to actual sales for performance-based marketers, add more third-party attribution providers, and give brands more ways to identify consumers.

And Meta and YouTube haven’t stood still. The two retaliated with their own shortened video versions, Reels and Shorts, respectively.

But some ad buyers say Reels and Shorts hasn’t garnered cult following or creator interest to justify significant ad spending. One said people just don’t use YouTube to share and binge on trending 60-second videos like they do on TikTok and called the results of both products mediocre.

TikTok, meanwhile, is already outperforming rival platforms including Meta in some areas.

The platform hasn’t been as impacted as Facebook by Apple’s privacy changes last year that hurt advertising effectiveness, and some Facebook advertisers have transferred money to TikTok in response.

Jon Severson, vice president and director of paid social networks at Mediahub, has spent much of the last year testing and learning about TikTok for customers, drawn by its engaging, diverse and growing user base. He has also seen campaigns work there. A fintech company that was trying to increase app downloads and drive customers to use TikTok for hypertargeting, with more success than any other platform.

“It’s not just that the user experience is engaging, immersive and personalized,” Severson said. “TikTok is the most transparent with these attributes, allowing marketers to better educate their prospects and existing customer base.”

Ross said TikTok ads compared favorably to other platforms, including Meta on clicks and costs, which she attributed to brands creating more fun, native content for the app versus more. refined on Instagram and Facebook.

And TikTok is winning in the key Gen Z demo where Facebook is losing appeal. Insider Information, which shares a relative with Insider, reported that TikTok attracted 37.3 million monthly Gen Z users in 2021, second only to Snapchat and ahead of Instagram’s 33.3 million and Facebook’s 28.7 million.

“Nothing structural is stopping TikTok from approaching the size of a Snap or Instagram in the near future – they have more diverse functionality and are multidimensional in terms of time spent and holistic user signals captured natively by the platform. -shape,” said Jon Morgenstern, chief investment officer at VaynerMedia.
