Facebook founding president sounds alarm - BBC News
do you know your neighbour? Chomsky manufactured consent. perfect personal propagandist. outrage machine. time waster. feedback loop for No Representation feelings. “I use these platforms, I just don’t let these platforms use me,” // Adam Curtis - FB can not present you with a future, a proposal. bc it is insular isolated environment (perfect personal propagandist) even if you are 'connected with the world.' It's a sham. Its millions of bubbles. not "A" world connected. Occypy was better than facebook. But Occupy hat not even a handful of leaders. political social economic movements need leaders to refer to, dialogue, interview, sign policy papers, etc etc. mass democracy still needs a leader and leadershuip and management and people skills. see Momentum.

End austerity – and kickstart Martin Luther King’s revolution of values | Richard Kozul-Wright | Opinion | The Guardian
Hyperglobalisation has concentrated massive wealth in a few hands, boosting the cult of materialism that the great civil rights campaigner warned us about // Byung-Chul Han // The real threat now is to the underlying trust, cohesion and sense of fairness that markets depend upon in order to function effectively. Against this, insisting that “there is no alternative” is yesterday’s political slogan. People everywhere desire much the same thing: a decent job, a secure home, a safe environment, a better future for their children and a government that listens and responds to their concerns. They want a different deal from that offered by hyperglobalisation. Prosperity for all cannot be delivered by austerity-minded politicians, rent-seeking corporations and speculative bankers. What is urgently needed now is a global new deal. Three elements – recovery, regulation and redistribution – remain at the heart of any such deal. Book Richard Kozul-Wright is director of the globalisation and development strategies division in the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. Its annual report, Beyond Austerity: Towards a Global New Deal, is published today

Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? - The Atlantic
Psychologically, however, they are more vulnerable than Millennials were: Rates of teen depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. It’s not an exaggeration to describe iGen as being on the brink of the worst mental-health crisis in decades. Much of this deterioration can be traced to their phones. [...] You might expect that teens spend so much time in these new spaces because it makes them happy, but most data suggest that it does not. [...] Teens who spend more time than average on screen activities are more likely to be unhappy, and those who spend more time than average on nonscreen activities are more likely to be happy. There’s not a single exception. All screen activities are linked to less happiness, and all nonscreen activities are linked to more happiness. // &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40840823 - Children consuming online time 'like junk food'

Media Websites Battle Faltering Ad Revenue and Traffic
[lots more competition for people's attention] The trouble, the publishers say, is twofold. The web advertising business, always unpredictable, became more treacherous. And website traffic plateaued at many large sites, in some cases falling — a new and troubling experience after a decade of exuberant growth. Online publishers have faced numerous financial challenges in recent years, including automated advertising and ad-blocking tools. But now, there is a realization that something more profound has happened: The transition from an Internet of websites to an Internet of mobile apps and social platforms, and Facebook in particular, is no longer coming — it is here.

GoPro Isn’t Doomed Yet. But they must become a software company, fast.
GoPro needed to spend heavily in “video editing automation.”
GoPro needs software in spades, far beyond just something to make editing easier. The company that created the first mass-market visceral experience broadcasting device ought to have a hand in every dimension of the current live revolution, not just be one of its few cameras. That requires software. [...] Most consumers already have all the hardware they need to create video; what they need is software to make this infinity of images comprehensible. As the defensibility of hardware declines, GoPro has an advantage few other makers of software have: fans, tens or even hundreds of millions of them.

Pando: Hot or Not founder responds to Nancy Jo Sales' new book: "I don’t think we invented human nature"
Nearly every tweet I’ve read about Nancy Jo Sales’ new book “American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers” has been some variation of “I’m scared to read this.” Indeed by page 20, I started making plans to move to an Amish village by the time my daughter turns 12. The deeper I read, the more I was impressed by many of the young women Sales interviewed, and the more sorry I felt that we've given them this world.  [...] Sales also describes how young girls worship Kim Kardashian and derive their self worth from how many likes they get on Instagram.

Yahoo: Was der Niedergang Apple, Google und Facebook lehrt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Yahoo baut Stellen ab und endet wohl als Ramschware. Der Abstieg des Internet-Pioniers ist auch eine Warnung an Apple, Facebook und Co. [...] Die Krise von Yahoo lässt sich in einer Zahl zusammenfassen: minus 13 Milliarden Dollar. So niedrig bewertet die Börse das Kerngeschäft des amerikanischen Internet-Konzerns inzwischen, hat der Tech-Journalist Matt Levine ausgerechnet. Abzüglich einiger lukrativer Beteiligungen und seiner Bargeldreserven ist Yahoo nichts mehr wert. Weniger als nichts. [...] Die digitalen Mode- und Tech-Magazine, die sie startete, finden wenige Leser. Auch die 2013 gekaufte Blog-Plattform Tumblr entwickelte sich nicht, wie von Mayer erhofft: Von der 1,1-Milliarden-Dollar-Akquisition schreibt Yahoo nun rund ein Viertel ab.

The True Impact Of The Snapchat Writedown For Entrepreneurs | TechCrunch
Snapchat is worth a lot less this month than it was last month. Fidelity, one of tech’s most active late-stage cross-over investors, recently decided that Snapchat is worth about $23/share, instead of the $30/share initially estimated. It’s part of an ongoing trend of cross-over investors trying to figure out exactly what unicorns are worth. But what does that mean for the average entrepreneur? Not much. The bubble didn’t pop. It just landed back on our planet. The best thing you can do for yourself, your company, and your future investors is build a business that works in real life.

Priceline's Lessons for Uber, Airbnb and Other Unicorns - Bloomberg View
But it was its market valuation that drove the fascination, and after the stock price collapsed from a high of $974.25 a share in April 1999 to $6.75 in December 2000, people mostly stopped talking about Priceline.com. [...] First, that the huge valuations being attached to today’s leading digital startups probably aren’t all crazy. Second, that those valuations may make it hard for late-round private investors, or the rest of us after the eventual IPOs, to make much money off the insight that Uber or Airbnb or Snapchat is in fact built to last. And finally, the big lesson for these companies may be to set aside a bunch of that investor cash for when times get tough -- and maybe hire a CEO, or at least a general counsel, who is really good at making acquisitions.

People are underestimating Snapchat just like they underestimated Facebook - Vox
In fact, almost every one of today's big internet companies — Yahoo, Google, Facebook, and Twitter — faced similar skepticism in their early years. Back in 2007, Kara Swisher (who now runs Re/code which, like Vox.com, is part of Vox Media) expressed astonishment that Facebook could be worth $15 billion. A year before that, a Slate headline read "$1 Billion for Facebook? LOL!" (Facebook is now worth $260 billion.) [....] A company's early ad revenue just doesn't tell us anything interesting about its long-term earnings potential. It takes a while for a company to hire a sales team, settle on an effective advertising format, and build awareness among potential customers. [...] But while it might take time for Snapchat to build a successful advertising program, there's little doubt that it will be able to. Every day, 100 million people open up the Snapchat app. As long as that's true, advertisers are going to be willing to pay top dollar to reach them.

Periscope founder: “Portrait is the future"
Later, Forte pleaded with the entrepreneur. “Please, landscape view for pros.” “We’re working on it,” Beykpour assured, but added that his “philosophical conviction” was that “portrait is the future.” Neither Forte nor Temple seemed convinced that Periscope was useful, journalistically speaking. And Forte pointed out that it could be detrimental. “There is a hesitation not to do what newspapers did on the web in the late ‘90s, which was put it all up for free. There’s a sense of ‘what’s in it for us?’ and caution before we put stuff up there,” Forte said. [...] How will Periscope fend off the Chatroulette moment? (to wit, when its better-intended uses are subsumed by the global community of mostly-male sexual exhibitionists. Beykpour knew precisely what I meant without further explanation.)

While more than 200,000 Redditors want Ellen Pao to resign, readers are jumping ship to budding competitor sites as top brass pushes to go mainstream [...] Redditors – as users are called – have accused the site of increasingly trying to monetize its popularity, and it appears their sentiments came to a head last Thursday, when Reddit’s popular director of talent, Victoria Taylor, was let go from her post. [...] a company torn between catering to commercial interests, and an obsession with giving voice to every possible perspective. [...] But some have suggested that the latest revolt is a flashpoint in a wider clash of cultures. The web’s largest agglomeration of niche enthusiasts provides a portal for people to make friends and enemies in a wide range of different communities, including some less reputable forums that have come under increasing scrutiny. &! bit.ly/1NMqxYG - Memo to VCs: Not every site with gargantuan traffic is destined to be a billion dollar public company

It could turn out to be a Twitter with problems in monetisation (turning a profit and meeting growth stage investors expectations - current valuation ... at IPO and post-IPO one, two years on.) Gary might be right about putting yourself out of business than letting the other guys do it for you. But Snapchat (Mr Spiegel) may have been forced to abandon its 'differentiation' in order to meet valuation expectations by appealing to a broader potential user base to use it more, like to read news & consumer other types of content than Snapchats ( P2P or B2C versions ).

Snapchat boss deletes all his tweets - BBC News
[ An attempt for free PR & new user growth bump!? Is growth multiple (m/m q/q) shrinking!? This is certainly a one off growth hack. ] // Snapchat chief executive Evan Spiegel has deleted every tweet he has ever written, as part of his latest push to help publicise the mobile app that wipes posts after a few seconds. "He likes to live in the present," Snapchat told the Wall Street Journal. And he was attempting to show that "ephemeral media" had a powerful role to play in modern communications. Mr Spiegel also launched a low-quality YouTube video to explain with paper and pen how his social network worked. [ Analyst ] "You don't see [Facebook's] Mark Zuckerberg or Sheryl Sandberg tweeting much." [...] Vodafone recently revealed 75% of the instant-messaging traffic on its UK network was down to the mobile app. [...] "Snapchat is now hiring its own team of journalists," "It is becoming a content-distribution platform." // on.wsj.com/1Gf59pA bit.ly/1GYycEs on.mash.to/1JSoLqL

A defense of Dave Morin | PandoDaily
[1bn consumer apps are more rare than lottery winners. period.] But despite it all, he just didn’t win. It’s crushing evidence of just how hard it is to build the next huge consumer Internet sensation. Mock Morin all you want, but pre-launch Google valued Path higher than it likely is valued today. If he was wrong to believe he could build the mobile Facebook, so were some of the smartest people in the Valley. So what did Morin do so wrong? Some parts of his thesis were right, but exact manifestations of that thesis weren’t. People were longing for a mobile social network focused on photos. People were longing for a Facebook-other. Just not the one he created. You can never predict how products will resonate. Did he focus too much on pleasing Valley early adopters while Snapchat and Whisper were resonating with teens, and Whatsapp largely got its legs through an international audience? Perhaps.

LOL // real question is can they scale advertising (ie turning a profit or be cash flow positive) till the time runs/road runs out to the IPO ... ie having to accept termsheets for a growth round not in their favour.

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame - YouTube
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

YouTube turns ten today. But will it survive the next ten years without losing its soul? | PandoDaily
None of these competitors have the same online video cachet and entrenched community of viewers that YouTube has. But when consumer adoption and ad spending is on such a steep uptick in a particular space, it’s shocking how quickly a market lead can erode. Just ask Myspace. [...] “I don’t think they’re going to necessarily lose their partners because of that, but it brought into question the type of partner Youtube is. Initially, to a lot of creators, they felt they could live an entirely independent life through creative ambitions. they felt like YouTube was there to support [them], and now it seems like this is a real business thing, and now YouTube is getting a little greedier.” [...] it will remain an indispensable marketing tool.

NYT - EU and Google
“With more than a decade of hindsight, the theories supporting the case against Microsoft have all but fallen apart, and the pursuit of the company that makes Windows may suggest a reason for skepticism about this fight against Google: The tech marketplace is fluid and unpredictable. The giants that look most unbeatable today could falter in ways that may once have seemed unthinkable — and without a lot of help from the government.” [...] Google makes most of its money from search ads, but the market for such direct advertising may be tapped out.

A Year Later, $19 Billion For WhatsApp Doesn’t Sound So Crazy | TechCrunch
Messaging is the center of mobile. Snapchat is raising at around a $20 billion valuation. And no one cares who owns apps. On February 19th, 2014, we didn’t know any of these things for sure. So when Facebook announced it would pay $19 billion to acquire WhatsApp — an app most American pundits had never used — it seemed ludicrous. Zuck had to be crazy, right? Wrong. Without WhatsApp, Facebook’s international situation would look a lot dicier. And if a competitor like Google acquired it instead, it could have been disastrous. Instead, Facebook possess the most popular messaging app, and has neutralized the biggest threat to its global domination of social networking. Why? Chat Is The Mobile Portal! [...] Its Stories feature has grown into a competitor to Facebook’s News Feed. And Discover could make it all quite monetizable if it gets popular. Snapchat is constantly cited as where teens are ditching your parents’ social network for.

Epoxy partners with top MCNs to makes multi-platform content management less of a pain | PandoDaily
The emergence of tools like Epoxy couldn’t have come at a better time for MCNs and the creators they represent. While YouTube has continued to grow in reach, the video giant’s relationship with its stars has deteriorated rapidly. Many prominent voices in the community have questioned the fairness of the revenue splits available on the platform, as well as the lack of sales support and sophisticated content management tools. The result of this discontent has been a general belief that it’s no longer enough to build a “YouTube business,” but rather that it’s crucial to build a multi-platform video business with YouTube as just one aspect – typically the top-of-funnel audience acquisition component.

BBC News - #BBCTrending: Why teenagers 'sext' - and what parents can do
In her cover story for the Atlantic Magazine, author Hanna Rosin says these photos are a modern reflection of teenaged sexuality. But they are not without problems. Photos can be posted on social media sites without consent. Teenagers can feel pressured to send these photos to get attention from a potential partner. And the current laws regarding the distribution and possession of these images don't fully address the nuances involved.

Aber tatsächlich hat das Verhalten insbesondere amerikanischer, weiblicher Teenager großen Einfluss auf Netz- und Medienkonzerne. Denn das Herz der Technologiewelt schlägt inzwischen "social", und junge Mädchen benutzen soziale Medien deutlich intensiver als alle anderen Gruppen. [...] Jüngstes Beispiel ist die Einführung von Stickern auf Facebook, also kleinen, meist niedlich gemeinten Bildchen, mit denen man Beiträge kommentieren kann. Das koreanisch-japanische Netzwerk Line, eine Mischung aus Twitter und WhatsApp mit Facebook-Elementen, hat eine junge, eher weibliche Nutzerschaft; dort ist dieses sehr visuelle Kommunikationsprinzip Sticker groß geworden: Emoticons auf Speed. Nebenbei gibt es interessante Theorien dazu, dass die verwandten Emojis die erste echte, weltweit funktionierende Sprache seien. & http://pando.com/2014/10/08/quartz-coins-the-venmo-line-reminding-us-that-the-under-30-crowd-lives-in-a-totally-different-digital-world/

Apps that went "against the China's regiem politics" were shut out of this country, +1bn potential users. It wouldn't be in line with the fiduciary responsibility (to its investors) that Evan Spiegel/Snapchat has to operate along.
