The study of nine major cities, including Seattle, says Uber and Lyft aren’t really causing people to drive less; they’re pulling passengers who otherwise would walk, take the bus or just stay home.

YouTube is about to pass Facebook as the second biggest website in US
Facebook has seen a severe decline in monthly page visits, from 8.5 billion to 4.7 billion in the last two years, according to the study. Although Facebook's app traffic has grown, it is not enough to make up for that loss, the study said.

New tool helps users control which countries their internet traffic goes through
A new study conducted by researchers at Princeton University focuses on the path internet traffic from several countries (including Brazil, India and Kenya) takes en route to the world's top 100 websites, finding that "a large fraction of internet routing paths from [these three countries] passed through the United States or Europe." The study, funded by DoD and NSF, introduces RAN (Region-Aware Networking), a tool "that allows users to reroute traffic to avoid going through a particular country by diverting traffic through intermediate points." RAN can potentially aid users in evading surveillance and censorship, notes lead author Anne Edmundson, with the added benefit that the tool "could also improve connection speeds and lower costs."

From a Princeton blog post explaining the study: "The researchers found that Region-Aware Networking was more successful in avoiding some countries than others. In particular, many popular websites are hosted only on servers in the United States or Europe. Other sites provide global access through contracts with content distribution networks, which often host websites in only a few countries...The study found that more than half of all routing paths originating in other countries passed through the United States. Brazil showed the highest dependence, with 84 percent of traffic transiting the United States...The researchers also assessed the prevalence of 'tromboning' paths that start and end in the same country but traverse a foreign country en route. Internet paths from Brazil and the Netherlands to popular websites often tromboned through the United States...

'The internet grew up without borders, but now people who care about privacy and freedom of expression are starting to be concerned about where their internet traffic goes,' said Jedidiah Crandall, a computer scientist at the University of New Mexico who was not involved in the research. 'At the same time, nation-states are developing their own ideas about borders on the internet. Where the borders actually are today is an important scientific question that this paper makes impressive progress towards answering.'"

The study, "Nation-State Hegemony in Internet Routing," is available via the ACM Digital Library here.
