Newspapers help to radicalise far right, says UK anti-terror chief | UK news | The Guardian
cited the 2017 terror attack in Finsbury Park in London as an example of where a man was “driven to an act of terror by far-right messaging he found mostly on mainstream media”.
Basu invited national newspaper editors to debate their coverage with “survivors of terrorism and those of us trying to counter it”. He said he hoped the government would deal with the issue of mainstream news outlets amplifying terrorist messaging in its forthcoming proposals on online harms and not just target large social networks such as Facebook and YouTube.

Video of Christchurch attack runs on social media and news sites | World news | The Guardian
Traditional news outlets have taken starkly different positions. MailOnline’s version of the story features an autoplaying clip of 18 seconds of the suspect’s livestream, showing him leaving his car, weapon in hand, cutting it as he enters the front door of Al Noor mosque on Deans Avenue. There was a version of the clip autoplaying on its homepage.

A recent change to YouTube’s search policy has helped keep the most graphic videos hidden: if the site recognises a particular search term, such as the alleged shooter’s name, as related to news, it explicitly boosts video from news organisations. Videos from sources including the Guardian, CBS News and ABC News were presented ahead of edited re-uploads of the attack itself

The secret lives of Facebook moderators in America - The Verge
The video depicts a man being murdered. Someone is stabbing him, dozens of times, while he screams and begs for his life. Chloe’s job is to tell the room whether this post should be removed. She knows that section 13 of the Facebook community standards prohibits videos that depict the murder of one or more people. When Chloe explains this to the class, she hears her voice shaking.

Returning to her seat, Chloe feels an overpowering urge to sob. Another trainee has gone up to review the next post, but Chloe cannot concentrate. She leaves the room, and begins to cry so hard that she has trouble breathing.

Heard on the Street, Episode 20: Local Reviews Tactics from a Travel Giant | Street Fight
Goloby sees a clear delineation in success from restaurants that respond to reviews within 24 hours. It doesn’t require exhaustive responses, especially for busy restaurant owners and managers, but it should send the message that business owners and operators are paying attention and take customer reviews seriously. Also, Goloboy says, maintain a positive tone, even with negative reviews.

How 5 Retail Brands Are Maximizing the Power of User-Generated Content | Street Fight
Rebecca Minkoff is a fashion designer, but her namesake brand has become about more than just handbags and jackets. The company has been able to inspire brand loyalty, and clarify its mission, by creating a Facebook group focused on female empowerment. The RMSuperwomen group has become a place where fans of the brand can share inspiring stories about the courageous things they have done in their own lives, which dovetails with Rebecca Minkoff’s brand messaging. The company also uses social media as a place to post behind-the-scenes pictures, in a move that’s designed to make customers feel like they’re insiders who are actually a part of the company itself.

TikTok Has Created A Whole New Kind Of Cool Girl Called Egirls
If you haven’t spent time on the TikTok app, none of that makes any sense. But for those in the know, it’s a perfect encapsulation of egirls — a new kind of cool girl who was born and lives on the platform. She’s funny, she’s cute, she’s totally ’90s, and she knows exactly how to play with expectations.

TikTok lets users make videos up to 15 seconds long, set either to popular music or sounds they upload themselves. That’s why it made a lot of sense when TikTok merged with the app in 2018. TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, is currently considered the world’s most valuable unlisted startup. It now has more than 800 million downloads worldwide.

Observational study – how do journalists really verify UGC? | REVEAL
To better understand the real-world strategies and workflows employed by journalists the University of Southampton IT Innovation Centre and Deutsche Welle have worked together to conduct an observational study of journalists doing UGC verification. We worked with 3 experienced journalists for a day, filming them and asking them to ‘think aloud’ as they performed several different UGC verification tasks. We watched what they did and asked them why they did it.

Trustworthy Or Shady?: Exploring the influence of verifying and visualizing user-generated content (UGC) on online journalism’s trustworthiness: Journalism Studies: Vol 20, No 4
Integrating user-generated content (UGC) has become an everyday practice in online journalism. Previous research suggests this can have both a beneficial and detrimental effect on a recipient’s perception of online journalism’s trustworthiness. We conducted an online experiment that, on the one hand, examined the overall influence of integrating UGC in an online news article compared to leaving it out altogether. On the other hand, we also analyzed how two specific modes of integrating UGC, namely its verification and visualization, influence trustworthiness. Controlling for different news topics, our results show that UGC is not a way to boost journalistic trustworthiness. In general, the journalistic use of UGC has a negative but overall weak impact on recipients’ perceived trustworthiness of a news article. Regarding the mode of integration, the verification of UGC to some extent positively increases trustworthiness, while visual integration has no substantial impact. Overall, the study sheds light on the hitherto somewhat neglected recipients’ perspective on UGC and lays the groundwork for future studies focusing on the reasons behind the uncovered effects of UGC on trustworthiness.

Freddie Mercury singalong hits Amazon Alexa for biopic release | Mobile Marketer
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is promoting the DVD and digital release of "Bohemian Rhapsody," the blockbuster biopic about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, with a singalong skill for Amazon's Alexa virtual assistant. From Jan. 22 to Mar. 31, U.S. fans can say "Alexa, play Ay-Oh Live" to recreate the experience of echoing Mercury as he sang at Live Aid in 1985, per an announcement.
The movie studio also urges fans to share videos of themselves performing the "Stomp, Stomp, Clap" opening of Queen's stadium-rock favorite "We Will Rock You" on social media. Fans can either re-post an official video from YouTube or create their own "Stomp, Stomp, Clap" video with the #StompforQueen hashtag. Fox will donate $100,000 to the Mercury Phoenix Trust charity to support HIV/AIDS initiatives.
