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. -

iPod Mastermind Tony Fadell On The Death Of The iPod: "You Can't Get Too Nostalgic" | Co.Design | business design
As for the future of music: It's not iPods, iPhones, or iPads. It's apps that read your mind. "Now that we all have access to all the music we could ever want, discoverability is the new Holy Grail," Fadell says. "Using machine learning and AI to figure out context, so that the celestial jukebox knows the perfect song for every occasion."

Algorithm tweaks don’t change the bottom line: Facebook is in charge of what you see — Tech News and Analysis
Facebook’s latest update to its ranking algorithm is supposedly designed to combat “clickbait” headlines in the content shared on the network — but all it does is reinforce how little we know about how Facebook decides what we see and don’t see

Twitter knows if you’re male or female, which is only the beginning for targeted ads | PandoDaily
Gender is only the beginning. A company called Leadsift recently launched a new product that claims to analyze tweets to predict a user’s age, salary, and buying habits. “We extract over a hundred attributes by modeling on a user,” Leadsift CEO Tukan Das tells me. “Let’s say you check into an airport more than three times per month. 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. +++

Facebook ads already know everything about you. This company wants to bring the same ad targeting to Twitter | PandoDaily
In any case, between the rise of more sophisticated ad targeting services like Leadsift, not to mention reports that Twitter may be experimenting with a Facebook-style algorithm, it’s beginning to feel like we’re exiting the golden age of social networks, when it was about conversations with other humans, and entering some strange corporatized new era, where the brands have taken over our favorite sites.

On Google's new Search Algo Push/Update - Called Panda.
Lesson Learned. Don't build your business on other peoples platform. Even if it is search. Meaning if your business is primarily impressions/unique visitors coming in via search, or even Social Media (FB - newsfeed algo, Twitter - noise + search algo, Pinterest - search algo, Amazon - product search) ... then you have one more thing to worry about every day - because you can't fix it if they break it for you. +++

In search of a quick buck - YouTube
Facing a slowdown in profits, high-frequency trading firms are pushing deeper into new asset classes such as bonds, currencies and derivatives. But as the practice, which disrupted and revolutionised stock trading, spreads so too does the potential consequences of a market error. The FT's Arash Massoudi investigates the reasons for the shift and the broader implications for the market.
