Facebook’s new algorithm change is what makes publishers so afraid of Facebook - Recode
Today, Facebook announced that it’s tweaking its algorithm so that users see less stuff shared by publishers and brands and more stuff from friends and family. This isn’t a nightmare scenario for publishers, but it’s pretty grim; websites and news organizations are leaning more and more on Facebook for growing their audiences, and Facebook just weakened a key traffic driver for them. //&! I hesitate to make this analogy, but publishers relying on Facebook are starting to look a whole lot like drivers who keep trusting Uber to make their lives better. - http://bit.ly/29kik4J

Flickr’s and Google’s algorithms are behaving badly | PandoDaily
[still basic bitch ] Flickr and Google are offering a case study in the dangers of faulty algorithms. Flickr’s problem stems from a system that automatically tags images shared to its service with what it sees in the photos. A black-and-white photo is tagged “blackandwhite,” for example, while a nature shot can be tagged with “outdoor.” The problem is that this system automatically tagged several images — one of a black man, another of a white woman — with “ape.” It also labelled the Dachau concentration camp with “jungle gym” and Auschwitz’s entrance with “sport.”

Digitale Revolution: Die Deutsche Wirtschaft ist zu zufrieden - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Skepsis ist angebracht. Die Digitalisierung ist dabei, das Leben umzuwälzen. Wie die Wirtschaft funktioniert, womit wir unseren Lebensunterhalt verdienen, wie wir zusammenleben, wie wir denken, lernen und fühlen - all das ist einem epochalen Wandel unterworfen. Wer die Folgen dieser Zeitenwende vor lauter Selbstzufriedenheit unterschätzt, lebt gefährlich. Eine Studie der Oxforder Forscher Carl Benedikt Frey und Michael Osborne kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass durch die digitale Revolution 47 Prozent der heutigen US-Arbeitsplätze gefährdet sind; in anderen westlichen Ländern dürften die Dimensionen ähnlich sein. [...] Denn die Digitalisierung führt bei vielen Gütern zu einem rapiden Preisverfall. Zwischen 2010 und 2014 wurden Mobilcomputer in Deutschland um 40 Prozent billiger, IT-Dienstleistungen um zwölf Prozent, Mobiltelefonieren immerhin um neun Prozent, wie das Statistische Bundesamt vorrechnet.

Sie haben aber andererseits auch ein düsteres Szenario skizziert: Künftig würden Millionen Roboter die Arbeit erledigen, die zuvor von Menschenhand erledigt wurde. Viele würden also ihren Job verlieren, damit sinke auch die Kaufkraft. Sie haben von der Tech-Elite Lösungen für dieses Problem verlangt. Haben Sie selbst schon eine? Schoendorf: Im Moment gibt es nicht die Lösung. Lassen Sie mich das Szenario noch ein bisschen deutlicher machen. Das Median-Alter weltweit ist 27,5 Jahre. Ich mache mir weniger Sorgen um die, die jünger sind, denn sie sind im Informationsalter aufgewachsen. Für die ist es am wichtigsten, dass sie die beste Ausbildung erhalten. Sie werden ein anderes Leben führen als wir. Sie werden viele Jobs haben. Dass man lange bei einem Arbeitgeber bleibt, das wird sich ändern. + book end of competitive advantage - amzn.to/1wwh1i7

Google demonstrates its power over the press by cowing German publishers | PandoDaily
[Google Traffic for all content publishers still huge despite rise of Social Media/Newsfeed, Twitter ] The publishers never really had a chance. Google doesn’t display advertisements on its News product, and no one forced them to allow the company to excerpt their stories. Indeed, Google pulled the excerpts from several large German newspapers in the beginning of October, making it clear that the company thinks publishers need the traffic driven by Google News more than Google needs the article snippets for which publishers are so desperate to be paid. Now those same publications have pulled their lawsuit because of Google’s “overwhelming market power.”

We’ll automatically learn that you are a frequent flyer and a businessperson.”

Twitter Pollutes The Timeline | TechCrunch
The specific change in how your Twitter timeline operates allows for the company to inject additional content into your feed from other users you don’t follow. This is in addition to promoted tweet advertising content — you still get that thrust into your feed too. Yesterday the company added the following paragraph to a Help Center page which details exactly how far it’s moving the goal posts here: Additionally, when we identify a Tweet, an account to follow, or other content that’s popular or relevant, we may add it to your timeline. This means you will sometimes see Tweets from accounts you don’t follow. We select each Tweet using a variety of signals, including how popular it is and how people in your network are interacting with it. Our goal is to make your home timeline even more relevant and interesting. +++ http://recode.net/2014/08/22/how-twitter-decides-what-to-place-in-your-stream/

http://searchengineland.com/google-made-890-improvements-search-past-year-201065 In a Google+ post from Google head of search Amit Singhal, Google shares they have made “more than 890 improvements to Google Search last year alone.” In 2009, Google told us they made between 350 to 400 changes to search and in 2010, they said they made 550 improvements to search in the past year. Google’s Matt Cutts said in a video in 2010 they make one change per day to their core search algorithm. We also know Google tests hundreds of changes in a day but only some of them make the light of day. The 890 “improvements” Amit is talking about is search specific, but goes well beyond algorithms. It includes user interface changes, auto-complete, Google Now and much more.

If Twitter implements a Facebook-style algorithm, you may not hear about the next Ferguson | PandoDaily
New York Times reported that Twitter CEO Dick Costolo was experimenting with Facebook-style algorithms designed to unearth the “best” content for users. The objective here is two-fold. For one, Twitter has a relatively steep learning curve compared to Facebook and other popular consumer web products. Getting the most out of Twitter can mean spending weeks or even months finding the best people to follow. It also takes some upkeep, finding new kids on the block to follow and unfollowing accounts that have worn out their welcome. With Wall Street unimpressed by Twitter’s user growth since going public, the company is desperately looking for ways to make the service more attractive to newcomers. The other reason? Advertising. Not only is Facebook good at predicting what news stories people will click on, it’s also learning how to leverage all the data it collects from “likes” and comments in order to better serve up advertisements.

Costolo’s plan to make Twitter all about entertainment makes perfect sense | PandoDaily
"There are huge dollars in entertainment– more than in news and certainly more than in what your friend had for lunch. Twitter is the only force on earth that argues against time shifting. Sure you can TiVo the Oscars. But you better not open Twitter for two hours if you do. And lastly, with “just” 300 million users or so Twitter desparately needs to go mainstream. Like it or not, this is a generation of consumer Web companies graded on the Facebook and LinkedIn curves. You gotta either have the size of the former or the monetization of the latter. The lowest common denominator on global culture are movies, music, TV, and sports. As his friend Ryan Seacrest can attest, more people vote for American Idol hopefuls than elected officials." || Twitter is now a live stream of what is happening.

The speed of human strategic thinking is fundamentally limited by the biological hardware that makes up the brain. As humans we simply cannot operate on the millisecond time scale -- but algorithms can, and it is these algorithms that are now dominating the financial landscape. In this talk Sean Gourley examines this high frequency algorithmic ecosystem. An ecosystem, Gourley argues, that has evolved to the point where we as humans are no longer fully in control.
