Facebook plays whack-a-mole with foreign election interference
"Facebook said this week it's taken down several networks of fake accounts over concerns about meddling in the US election the latest crop tied to Russian intelligence services. The company says the accounts on facebook and instagram could have been used to leak hack documents. It also removed several authentic Chinese accounts that in some cases shared material related to president trump and his opponent former vice president Joe, Biden facebook didn't say whether those accounts were directly tied to the Chinese government which has denied any influence campaigns. Sarah Frier is a reporter for Bloomberg who's been following developments. This is just indicative of. How facebook is going to continue to be playing, whack a mole with these kinds of operations there they're going to have to keep looking for them, finding them, stopping them, and when I say these operations, I need what facebook considers to be coordinated inauthentic behavior. Specifically, the kind of influenced campaigns where entities from another country are trying to pretend to be US citizens to stir controversy. When in fact, they are not researchers who looked into these fake Chinese accounts found that some of them were created using a I generated faces. So not real faces. How concerned should we be about that? I think that that makes it harder to you to determine whether somebody is not a real person like often you can. You can look in an account and do a reverse image search and find that the person who's accounted as is actually someone else or stealing someone's picture. But now you can generate faces with AI, which is a little scarier generate new identities in. It's hard to tell the difference between that and a a real person. Do you have a sense of how influential foreign interference might be in the selection, which is already underway? I think the bigger issue may be domestic efforts to influence the election. I think that a lot of people have learned from the events of the past few years, just how how incredibly powerful it can be to stoke fear conspiracy and strong feelings. But that's what spreads on facebook is if you can get a reaction out of something if you can people to care and. Share and make something go. That is that's what works, and so I think that outside of the issue of fake accounts in fake identities there's this larger issue of of. The kind of viral misinformation that has spread and facebook has a much

"We could still use your guys. It didn't bode well and then of course instagram's stories catch on in a tremendous way accelerating instagram's growth in. That's when the real tension starts happening with facebook right but we'll get we'll get to that later. Sure so let's get into some of those tensions. The book is really impart a story. About these two corporate cultures clashing and the facebook culture. You depict as kind of the growth at all costs. Culture right job at facebook is to win and at Instagram job. Seemed like it was much more to have good taste and to be cool and these two things sort of clash pretty hilarious ways and there's this very funny anecdote you share about right. When the company joined where Andrew Baas Bosworth Longstanding facebook executive now runs the hardware division. They get into a fight about their shirts. Can you talk about this? Oh yes so. They're at this Greek restaurant about to meet with some advertisers. Kevin is not allowed to advertise on instagram yet. And because Zuckerberg of course wants to grow more first and then he takes a look at Andrew. Boswell shirt any came in. I like your shirt in Basel like okay. Thanks yeah I got. This is like a Wonsan hacker ban in Kevin says. Keep calm and hack on. Oh sorry I don't like your shirt right. He thought it said like rock on and it said half a thought it was like one of those cool London. Shirts den Bos's like well at least. My shirt fits me and Kevin's like this your cause more than your car and it just like their dislikes sparring with each other and people are like okay. Look guys like all right. Let's go into the meeting now but it just Kinda shows win. Kevin Joins facebook. It's this world of hackers and they all they know best. They all think that data's the right way to tell the story. They all think that by keeping spending more time on facebook by them liking more things by them sharing more things that means they like facebook more in connecting the world is is really like a marketing. Speak for getting bigger and Kevin System is like y'all I have tastes like you don't need to spam people with notifications you don't need to send them incessant emails telling them to log back into their accounts like what about you just have good stuff on your product and then the wants to come and give people good feeling when they use it in like make it really simple and easy and fast. And all the faithful geyser like this guy's really arrogant like I don't I don't get this. So that tension in the early days eventually end up loving Kevin and defending him in later discussions with Zuckerberg but in the early days. It's just really funny. Well and everything that you just said gets to. Why and I think probably you know. Millions of other people really liked instagram right. Like even though it is fun to read about those skirmishes instagram's good taste really did a lot for the APP for a long time and as you get into twenty sixteen and facebook has all these problems associated with its brand. The majority of Americans still had no idea that facebook owned it and I have to believe that at least some part of that was just. It looked and felt very different. It acted very different. It was not sending the million notifications right one of the biggest things that one of the biggest differences between how facebook works and how instagram works is instagram. Actually had an editorial opinion about what content was good and what content was not good in they would they would be kingmakers. They would decide like this person's account is really interesting. They would posted on the at instagram account. Which actually has more followers than any Kardashians like probably around three hundred fifty million now and the second posts about somebody they would have a great prospects for their for their business or their career or whatever it might be and they get more famous than to get more attention They will get more distribution so they would do that. They would do community meet UPS. They would have seen events they would have system go out and personally need with celebrities and fashion people and chefs and even the pope at one point with Charles Porch had partnerships in Tokyo. Who's like the masterminded this whole thing? And get them to use instagram. Teach them how to use instagram. And if they have a problem they have somebody to call. They have Kevin Super Cell phone number. They can call him get help. And so that really creates this. This ecosystem of people who are super devoted to the product and feel indebted to the team in have this like personal relationship with instagram in that really fuels the future and that's one of the things that facebook thought was super frivolous. 'cause they're really. Why would you ever? If you're trying to get big. Why would you ever focus your attention on one person or one account when you could instead be building something that affects tens of millions or hundreds of millions of people? Like what's the point in what they what. They're missing bears that on facebook. You have returing and so you have content going viral on instagram. You have people who get popular. There's no returing it's just. It's the people who end up being the pillars of what's good on instagram and really causing the growth and that gets something else that happens over the life of instagram. That is interesting talking. About which is the rise of influencers and one of the things. Your Book Does Really. Well is kind of tells the story of the some of the first instagram influencers and because there are really no rules they start advertising without disclosing that they are doing advertising. This falls under the purview of the Federal Trade Commission which had also had the job of deciding whether the acquisition should have been allowed in the first place and of course the winds up saying yes. The acquisition is fine and wants doing very little to regulate these influencers. So we're going to put up our second poll question which I'm curious to know should the FTC have allowed the acquisition of instagram curious? To get your thoughts about that so you should see that. Poll popping up here shortly But Sarah can you talk to us a bit about the role that the a should have played in the life of instagram and the role that had actually did play when the acquisition was under review in the summer of twenty twelve. It was a grueling process for employees. Because they had no idea if they were going to be allowed to join facebook in yet they were growing super fast. The FTC brings Kevin System out to DC in just peppers with questions about like case. A wet like software. Did you build this on? And like how is the APP structured? Is that different than facebook? And they're like we love instagram and Zuckerberg was like no. I'm not going out to DC. He joins via video call in. Meanwhile facebook is sending information regulators about the competitive landscape in one document. They said in one package sent to a D. UK commissioner looking into this. They explained that instrument was just one of many photo sharing ups. You've got instagram. You've got a camera. Plus you bought hipster matic. You've got camera. Awesome like all of these ones. You bought pack that are also trying to do photos on Mobile. In fact facebook also does photos on bogue also like who knows that this is going to be a surviving APP. But what they've missed is something that Zuckerberg knew to be true from the very earliest days the network effect once there is a mass of people on using a product. There's very few reasons to join anything else and by the time. Instagram is being reviewed by that. He see you got Justin Bieber to President Obama to all of these photography. It's become a part of our culture already even with a couple tens of millions of users and I think that's what they really didn't understand about competition is that you're not just competing. Were creating a photo product on the Internet. You are competing for people's attention and their social connections and so. I think that was the only one who really understood that. Instagram should be worth a billion dollars which now seems so cheap but at the time nobody had ever paid that for Mobile APP. That's right and also one of the other interesting facts in your book. The acquisition didn't even turn out to be a billion dollars right like dude due to fluctuations in the stock price. Yeah facebook stock starts plunging and it ends up being about seven hundred fifteen million and a lot of the instagram employees. Don't even get rich off. It was even more of a bargain. I think than than people give it credit for why did the FTC not play much of a role in regulating influence or advertising to start with? Oh yes so once. Instagram created a tool where you could say or content was branded content then. The onus fell off in instagram and onto all of these individual influencers which is an economy. That's very difficult to police. has sent a lot of warning letters. A lot of like you know. Maybe it'll do this. Maybe don't attempt to deceive people about how you got this product. But they didn't really do anything they were. Just slaps on the wrist and they put a lot of guidelines like you should probably use Hashtag sponsored inhabited the beginning of the post and I think it was really just this game of chicken where the accuracy thought. Instagram was going to enforce this or that agency is. We're going advertising agencies. We're going to enforce this and instagram was like well. Isn't this really like you know we have the tool like one now that we have the tool isn't going to be up to the advertising agencies or the FTSE so I think it was really dislike pushing off the responsibility onto others in meanwhile we consumer still can't tell what is branded in what is just like a real recommendation. Yeah so it remains a trust problem for them While we got about ten minutes left for we're going to start getting some Some viewer questions. So let's talk about when it all started to go wrong. Why did Mike and Kevin Leave Instagram? They were being put into a position where they felt like they could no longer be the founder visionaries in. I think Zuckerberg knew that that would push them out. I think he understood that you just like he understood. What would make these guys tech and get them to be acquired by facebook? He understood that by taking their freedoms away by restricting their resources by telling them their teams has reported up to facebook teams or that they instead of using instagram's specific resources they would have to use space agree sources He must have known that that would that would not only make less exciting for them to work at facebook but also make it impossible for them to achieve their vision in a way that didn't require just layers and layers of bureaucracy and they were frustrated. I think that it will I describe. Kevin System is like the ultimate self improver. He gets really obsessive about whatever he wants to do. Next whether it's riding a bike or perfecting Art like he gets really into things I said earlier that he's not like mono mono competitive he's competitive with himself like he's trying to always like be the best At this time he's like trying to be the best version of CEO like he's got radio mentoring him. He's reading all the books he's like trying to be like a leader of a company with a billion users with Mark Zuckerberg as the Nice Man on his board an like the competing vision. They're like Zakar burgers just like well you you leave. Instagram department And report out to Chris Cox and it's great they have opinions but I'm the CEO. Well you know it's seems to me that up until very late in the game system really believed that he had a degree of independence. And it's quite easy for me. Actually to envision a world where him and Mike. Krieger worse still there. If Zuckerberg had let them continue to build their own roadmap had given them were resources. I could see them being there. I think like that there will probably always be some sadness with that. They didn't get to go as far as they wanted to. I think an interesting question is would that be good for facebook? If they were still there I think that was. We had Kevin System on Bloomberg television on Friday and Emily..

"That. And so you know I think I don't have. I don't have an opinion. I wish I did but I think that it's impossible to know what reality we look like. Otherwise yeah I think that's a fair answer. The hard thing to do would be to go without selling. It would have been much harder. Well I so I want to sort of throw it open to everyone. Who's here so that they can start weighing in so I think we're going to have a poll pop up for you. Whether you think it's Ram could have succeeded as an independent company so you can vote on that and we'll get some answers later. We are not allowed to vote in our own poll but while people are thinking about that. Let's let's take a step back. What was your first encounter with instagram? And what did it mean to you before you started reporting on it? I started using instagram. When I first moved to New York City when I just graduated from college and I I really At resonated with me as a way to use my phone I just got my first iphone. Previously I had a palm tree. I don't know if anyone remembers that but that was it. Was My college phone in my iphone. Had A great camera and instagram made it a lot better inside. Started taking pictures around my neighborhood. I think my first picture is some some bread pudding. It's not appetizing at all. I didn't know the rules but I I liked it as a way to to just I've spent so much my career covering facebook covering twitter using those for my career. Instagram for a long time was a place where I could just kind of be myself in my friends. Obviously choosing to write a book about the company negates that option but for a while. Yeah it was just a place that I would go. See what was happening and creative world right and now is a big monolith so you know we budgeted about forty five minutes for questions. And then we're GONNA take some. Cuban A and I talk to you about the history of Instagram for approximately six hours by. I had to make some hard cut so I basically don't want to talk about the early days of the company because I think many people on this at this event might be a little bit more familiar with that and what I love about. Your book is all of the juicy details you bring us about what happened after the acquisition but I should at least ask about the acquisition itself because that is a pretty incredible story in its own right. And what are the things that you get at is how what a small world? Silicon Valley is and how Kevin System new basically all of the big players in the social networking space long before he founded instagram. Right so he. He had met Mark Zuckerberg facebook's early days he had worked for for Jack Dorsey and to me not raise the question of was it inevitable that instagram was going to sell because Kevin was so plugged into this network and was dealing with people who I think very good sense of what him and Mike Krieger. We're building I think you're you're absolutely the relationships matter so much to who succeeds in. Silicon Valley and the fact that Kevin already knew mark actually mark tried to hire him back in two thousand and five and he said no wanted to graduate Stanford in a new Jack. They work together. Jack helped him learn how to Code. That's how close ties aren't how far they go back in. I but I don't think that relationships are the only thing that determined whether system wanted to sell because although Zuckerberg has framed himself as an early mentor of system. I don't think that that's the case. I think that they knew each other. From from afar there was the Respects their respect for his awkward building. What he builds in respect for system for having this really popular APP the eating into something that facebook wish that they were doing right but the stronger relationship by far was between Systrom Jack Dorsey. It started actually released a friendship and then Jack became when he was ousted from twitter he became one of the first angel investors in Instagram. Basically because this was the first to ask him if he would. He was very flattered by that it strokes. His Ego and Jack was one of the reasons why instagram became so successful because he had an early twitter following and he kept promoting instagram over and over and over on twitter and so everyone in the valley was using it and system simultaneously. Coordinate a lot of creatives use it and when twitter finally decided when they finally got their act together to acquire instagram after a couple of false starts system said no in I think he said no because it was almost too similar. It didn't solve the problems that facebook with sulfur them which is the engineering power but most of all the ability to stay independent in the ability to go into a bigger company and still be considered a founder and still be respected for that vision. That founder has this aura around founder. That they all have in Silicon Valley mark. Understood that about Kevin's ego was able to cater to it in his deal-making I will say that. Like the the question of what like the alternate history of a World War twitter instagram? Like wow do I want to go read about what life in that universal for what it's worth eighty percent of you believe that instagram could have succeeded as an independent company so fairly strong majority. So is there a you bring up the big narrative around the instagram acquisition? Which is that. Facebook was going to let it remain independent. What do you think that word meant to facebook at the time What does it mean to Instagram? And was it ever true? Basic an interim had no idea what that meant. It just really sounded good. It was like it was like. Oh Yeah you'll have all the independence in none of the risk and all of the resources in it'll be great and the way that an early deals guy on the deal explained to me. He was like a means if he was like. It's a beautiful plant. You don't trim the plant when it's still growing. I mean they were thinking about it in the total abstracts in for a company so focused on growing on metrics. On trying to like incrementally get more people to use it's product. It was a pretty wild. It was like a wildcard no-one at faced with new with. We're going to do with it in Coburg only thing. He knew that like instagram had some magic and they need to needed to figure it out but right away. There started to be some cracks in the relationship. Because as as you know everyone at facebook is very attuned to their bonus in our metrics in how they would succeed at the company and they all succeed by growing the product and instagram comes in and they barely settled into this tiny garage room at facebook H. Q. And the first thing that the growth team says to Instagram is. I wish we could help you but I need to figure out if people posting photos on. Instagram is a threat to facebook. Once they figure that out your friends with us. But I gotTA CHECK. If you'RE NOT GONNA kill us. Okay now. That study is inconclusive. Cleese at all of these notifications to your APP so it sounds like a really fun way to get started at a new company. It was so jarring and these instagram guys. I mean it's almost cute like they're all these quirky creatives like urban professionals who were just trying to make it in the world like none of the almost none of them got rich off the deal. They're hoping that they can come. And grow this into something really powerful with this big tied to a community and face because like like turn on the guys like grow grow grow and it's very grading of for the people who appreciate Quirky Culture Niches Right. Well okay so there's this flip side to this though right which Somebody who has written a lot about content moderation. I think I was very sensitive to this This one thing that happened which you've already brought up. Which is basically one of the very first things that the INSTAGRAM team does. Once they land at facebook is they give up. Content moderation right. They're very small team had been reviewing all of the reports of bad stuff that was happening on the network and within the first month they have offloaded that to whoever does that at facebook which of course as we know is at the time was a bunch of foreign workers. Now it's both workers and people working here in the United States. Why did they give that up so quickly? And then I have an editorial comment about is so just imagine. You're an early instagram employees. And your job is to have a shift to deal with all of the the shit on instagram. And you go you have your morning shifts and then someone has the afternoon shift in someone has the evening shift in. Who knows what happens in Asia? But you're asleep and then you wake up all over again and they actually would usually manage in two thousand eleven. They would usually manage to clear the queue of reports that came and by the time they joined facebook they had eighty million users. There was no way that they could get through everything and they had no system for like prioritizing it or are sorting through it and there was they were already like missing things and there was a huge spam problem in so to them. They were thinking Wolfe's really knows how to do this. At scale. They have a billion people using facebook. Like this is probably better for our users will be passed along to them but of course facebook as you have noted in your coverage was not doing it in a way that was very personalized and attuned to what people need it was more like get through as many as you possibly can Whereas instagram ablaze with one employee told me that she'd like personally send messages to people who were thinking of committing suicide and saying it on instagram. She would like send them resources from various organizations in their country like that takes a lot of time and it takes a lot of human touch and they were super relieved. That it wasn't a problem anymore right so that'll make sense at the same time you know. I see moderation as an essential pillar of any social network right deciding what gets to stay on the network and what has to come down is so fundamental to what the network but comes so to me. The moment that instagram decided that they were not going to play a role in that is a moment that they actually gave up a lot of their independence and much later in the book. You write about how they wanted. More resources to work on some instagram specific moderation issues around the sale of opioids and some bullying stuff. And they get told. No we have a central moderation team. Now that does that am. I wonder if a lot of that independence game. They sort of gave up walking in the door in a way that they probably weren't fully thinking through. Oh absolutely I mean I think i. I think that instagram became extremely good at highlighting. What was working about their platform. Which is one reason why we hear so many fuzzy things about instagram. And whether it's like the art that's happening on Instagram or the celebrity is whatever like instagram is a lot of that in our in our media on the flipside like taking down the bad stuff. They weren't even prioritizing that for a very long time it wasn't until a maybe twenty sixteen that Kevin System started to see a lot of the negative things happening around facebook's brand image in he realized oh my gosh like maybe. We should care about people's well-being in bullying and things like that. It really was like a wake up call. That came in part from Taylor Swift. Like it was a really. It was a transition for him wanting to have like the refuge on the Internet where people wet escaped. The other you know viral content hubs in. That was kind of too late to think about it. Yeah well let's let's let's move to another subject. You have brought up facebook's famous paranoia about competitive threats which I think is certainly one of the big reasons why facebook acquired instagram. But as you mentioned up top they continue to be terrified of instagram. Even after they acquired it. And you tell the story in the book of this engineer at Instagram name Gregory Hawk moth and a month after the acquisition. He meets with the facebook camera team. Can you tell us a little bit? About what. The facebook camera team was what that conversation was. There was a lunch meeting that appeared on his calendar. And when he goes to lunch with these guys they're like. Oh Yeah we recreated to kill you like sort of matter of fact not like hey welcome to basically. Maybe they said welcome. That was the part that really sticks out with this. This early employees just that like welcome to facebook. Good luck. Like if you weren't here you would be dead. What do you think that's how they do their deals to? I mean the way Zuckerberg tried to acquire snapchat in the early days as he was like he was like. Hey you know what you think about joining block when Evan Spiegel says. No he says okay. We'll here's poke. We're about to launch US thing. Just thought you should know about it. It's not too late to say yes. And of course. Poke completely fizzled and none of us. I don't know if anyone on this call ever used it but that's kind of how they would play thing I did use poke and I remember at the time. The notable thing about polk was that Mark had personally contributed code to it like like that that little tidbit came out but like most people. I did not use poke for very long. You know one of the other pieces of news you break in book is that there was a second previously unreported a tab for facebook to buy snapchat. And it's sort of interesting to think about you. Know if Spiegel had taken the deal would he also had a lunch with lie? Here's the stories team where the story team says. Oh Hey by the way our job is to kill you. You know yeah. I think that that's a at first of all. Evan Spiegel like he would could never really work for Mark Zuckerberg. Those Kevin System is more diplomatic. He's very good at like navigating personalities and he's he's not very like Mono Amano competitive whereas I think Evan Spiegel is just such an individual that I don't eat those guys working together but but mark Zuckerberg calls him on the eve of instagram launching instagram stories. Which gives you? A sense of how Zuckerberg believes that product will work out because if instagram is about the lunch stories and he's like Hickory..
Instagram makes lots of money. Now creators want some of the profits.
"Youtube and instagram are both making tons of money but only one platform pays its creators. How long is that arrangement? GonNa last from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would in recent days. We've started to find out how much money youtube of an instagram are making during. Its recent earnings report alphabet said Youtube made just over fifteen billion dollars in advertising sales in two thousand nineteen in a few days later Sarah frier at Bloomberg broke the news that instagram brought in twenty billion dollars last year and ad sales. That is more than a quarter of facebook's facebook's total revenue by the way but youtube shares its ad revenue with the creators on its platform and INSTAGRAM. Well doesn't but both of them rely on a steady stream of uploads from their users so Howard creators responding and are they GonNa WanNa cut Sarah frier from Bloomberg says they might. I got a lot of messages yesterday from instagram creators that I interviewed who said that. This seems really unfair to them. They didn't expect that. Instagram made this much in revenue. But now that they know they really want a piece of it because they feel like they are creating value for the platform that gets instagram users. Keep coming back do we. You have any idea how important creators are creators and their audience. It really depends on on who the user is because some people use instagram. Just to off the updated on their smaller circle of friends they use it as sort of a facebook alternative. But there's a whole other host people who use instagram specifically to follow although creators who are influencers whether it's in travel or in cocktail making or an embroidery the way people currently make money if they have a following on instagram is through these unofficial relationships they can say. I'm a travel influencer. I'm going to Bali. These hotels will give me free. Stay all these people will come together in an unofficial relationship to pay me for this experience that I can gain following from but is there really any upside for instagram to create those direct relationship. Certainly Youtube has come under fire. You know for incubating controversial creators for for example like could it just be cleaner instagram. Say thanks make your own money on your on your own. I think it's definitely something that they're concerned about instagram. In its its initial conversations with people to allow them to be paid to create content for instagram. TV had a clause in the contract that said that they weren't allowed to talk talk about anything controversial. No politics no no race stuff. Would you maybe be something that instagram. I DIDN'T WANNA put its money behind so there are a lot more cautious about that brand value since instagram has a reputation of being in an aspirational `rational place. So what is happening with their brand maintenance is is. They're trying to make sure that if they get into these close relationships creators. They don't do it in a sloppy way that Sarah frier a senior reporter at Bloomberg Instagram is now officially testing feature that lets creators make money from ads on TV videos however it recently removed about unlinking to Instagram TV videos from the main APP because no one was using it and now for some related links if video is going to be the main way for instagram creators to make make money then the product has a long way to go. We've got a link on our website. Marketplace Tech Dot Org about instagram's efforts to make its TV product. Success took a clear. TV is not the same thing as just posting a video on instagram. It was really created to be a youtube competitor. And that's not really working. Everyone one pretty much hated that button. You would always hit it by accident when you were trying to view stories but there are several bigger problems with the video product. According to business insider story that quotes quotes several creators. It's hard to use. Videos are limited to a minute. People are confused about why it exists and tic Toc basically crushing it like a bug but maybe we have creators can make money off. Id Videos. They'll be more interested in overcoming. All those hurdles. We'll see

"Bloomberg reporter, Sarah Frier is covering the story. She talked with the judge as Brooke Allen and Greg Bowman hundreds of millions which is incredible number of passwords. The vast majority of them were from Facebook users who use this version of the app called Facebook light, which people use especially globally around the world in places with a less strong internet connection. But there were still passwords for the regular Facebook app and for Instagram that we're exposed. So does this. Pose a real risk for users. We'll see success that because it was just expose internally at the company, and they have no evidence that anyone at the company abuses access that maybe it's not been such a big risk for users. But even so I mean, there are thousands of people who work for Facebook who would have had access to this information and face it. We're going to be letting people know if they were one of the texted users so that they can change their password. Easiest solution.

So if you don't get another fixation, you can you can safely assume that you were not among defected. But but certainly it is something that that just increases the general anxiety over. Facebook's usage of user data. They've had several scandals in the last few months concerning how they manage their security, and this is not going to help with this problem. So Facebook, you know, probably has I don't know billions of users around the world are they looking at the prospect that other people have considered that maybe you don't use password. You find a different security way to get on. Well, there are a lot of steps you can take a if you have a Facebook account or I another cap you can use a two factor authentication, which uses your phone number as a second authenticated beyond a password.

"Part of your Sunday morning. I'm Jay are cool. The Facebook lost twenty six percent of its value in two thousand eighteen keep part of digging out of that hole might be Facebook watch ever heard of it. Sarah Frier would. Bloomberg spoke care, Carol. These John little about Facebook watch the video tab on the Facebook app, and you might not know about it. Because that's not really how we use Facebook. We use Facebook in small sections of time while we're waiting in line or while we're sitting around for somebody. It's not what we do were wanting to lounge back and have an intentional viewing experience a video, which is what Facebook wants us to do based Bill watch to be a competitor to YouTube and Netflixing television in general to eat more into that kind of time. But so far it hasn't really worked. What's holding them back is at the competition of YouTube? Is it the content not being good enough? What do you think? Well, the content. They've spent about a billion dollars on and still they haven't really had a major hit the way the Handmaid's tale ahead for Hulu or Netflix original series have been for net. Flicks basic hasn't really figured out what is audience wants. And there's such a range of things they have reality television, and sports and a lot of canceled shows from other services that they're trying to bring an audience for. But it hasn't really resonated people. Just see this an persistent annoying red notification dot on their face the and they're not sure really why they would want to go there. What would want to see in order to get revenue from this service at this point? It seems like they're really kind of going all in with those pre roll ads that can be so annoying for watchers as well. Initially, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO Facebook said that he didn't want to do pre roll advertising because of that discovery. Experience when you're scrolling through Facebook wants to be moved by something brought into it that wouldn't work now that they've been spending so much money on content for watch. He really needs to have started to have a return on investment there. So they've been adding pre roll advertising they've been having banner ads at the bottom of videos. They've been working on other initiatives like branded content and subscription businesses. But the main problem is they think that in the future they won't have to pay up front for this content that advertisers make enough money from the audience sharing revenue on ads that they will just make it themselves. But it doesn't seem like that point happen. You don't foresee them producing any kind of big budget show stopping series or movies or anything like that? Well, they certainly could. Right. I mean, we didn't use to think of Amazon as a place where we could go see really good TV. But then and started funding shows that people watch and so it can. Happen. Just hasn't happened yet. And it's unclear really where they're going with this what they're trying to do. But it does seem that losing a quarter of their value over the last year or so that they're really booking on this to be a key part of the turnaround. The biggest problem Facebook has right now is actually a problem of success that too many people already used to be. So how do you deliver that kind of revenue growth that investors are used to over the long term? They have to start spending on other vets better in areas that maybe they're not as used to or as comfortable with. They don't have as much expertise around. They're going to have to try to make more money off things like they watch off things like Instagram Facebook messenger, and what's up things that are that go beyond this news feed, and they'll be reporting earnings this weekend. So we'll get to hear a lot more about those plans. But yeah, I think I think it is is just uncharted territory for them. They don't have an expertise around this the way to do about around.

I know having places right? Is that how it feels? It feels great. I think I've hit the rocket ship. I think they most exciting thing going on right now and consumer internet, and I'm going to tell you all about it. But it really has fought like a very easy transition. Oh, interesting. Is that is it because culturally the companies are similar or or what what what makes the ease of it? So I think it's a couple of things I think one I've been a member of next door to joined a are my local one in two thousand and fourteen so four plus years. So it helps when you've experienced what you're building. Yes. But beyond that, it really speaks to me in terms of global applicable pretty I'm all about community. You're going to hear a little bit more about that soon. And so my soul it feels like something I want to do in the world. Beyond that the team as you mentioned because you're hitting people who are there for all the right reasons, they're very mission driven very passionate about what they do. So it's very similar to square in that regard. But they're super smart and they're moving fast. And there's no time to kind of pause. You just need to get right into that boat and row with them.

Carol Massar along Jason Kelly right here in our Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, overwhelmingly to the downside what a day in terms of the ups and downs once again of the equity markets Jason because you were higher heading into that fed meeting, and bam as soon as we got the decision, and then picking up some momentum to the downside once fed chief Jay Paul started speaking, we saw equities really really sell off so four hundred and forty five names in the S and P five hundred lower today, sixty higher. So. Yeah. Over overwhelming to the downside where the S and P five hundred sliding to a fifteen month low bucking the trend. I'm just going to point this one out General Electric is that amazing up five point two percent. Your number one gainer in the S and P five hundred another analyst upgrading Jeffrey, spray Gobert vertical research. He's been ranked the top analysts in the. I Pol several times upgrading g to a buy rating from hold. It's his first by rating, a GE since April of two thousand eight also raising his price target to eleven dollars from ten dollars modestly but saying he sees quote, a path to create equity valued suck was up as much as eight eight point. One percent skis me closing ultimately up five percent closing at seven dollars and sixty six cents. So he sings some room to run and the other thing is we did have a strategy e saying it's filed confidentially for an initial public offering for healthcare unit. They didn't say forgive me. This is according to people familiar with the matter. So they are moving ahead with plans to spin off the company's second most profitable business line. We know that that's what the show is up to selling off assets. Which interesting though, is we've got to watch this to what this does to cash flow at the company. Cash flow has appointed the dividend, which I think is down to a penny share. So all of this very interesting when it. Comes to General Electric on the more negative side. And as you said, the negative, certainly outweighed the positives in the SNP today. You heard Charlie talk a little bit about FedEx. And that really is a bellwether for shipping around the world for both consumer and customer demand. The number three lager in the SNP Facebook Facebook, I feel like the hits just keep on coming. They're not in a good way. The company sued by the district of Columbia over the Cambridge Analytica data scandal. Of course, Cambridge politica. In some ways feels like four scandals ago. I know. Raced away every every day there's something coming out. I saw a tweet earlier from Sarah Frier who watches that company so closely for us responding essentially on Twitter to Facebook's explanation about them sharing the the company sharing people's messaging histories some of its partners including Spotify, and Sarah, rightly pointing out wait a second. Why it because Facebook essentially said look this is the course of business we had to open it up because people wanted to use this app Spotify that as and Sarah saying, wait, there's a big difference between me wanting to send someone a song and me wanting to send someone to selling and then therefore giving Spotify my entire history of messages on Facebook messenger. This doesn't quite add up. Yeah. Exactly. And this is going to be story, which is Jeff muskets editor of the magazine, the tech sector, and we said, well, what are what are the big trends for twenty nine hundred ninety says oversight regulation of the big tax. And so we'll see what happens. Two thousand hundred do wanna mention J P Morgan. They got a downgrade a fresh crop of analysts are adding to questions about whether Bank shares have fallen far enough. Atlantic equities cutting hit John Hegarty that is cutting his recommendation on J P Morgan Chase to neutral saying the Bank now, quote offers the least upside to price targets among the majors. He prefers Bank of America Corp from a defensive perspective. So JP Morgan chairs there are up two percent of their highs the day when we saw the overall market rallying down one point three percent at the close quick check on Bank of America. If I may Bank of America, which is up more than three percent of ties just finishing the day down about one point two percent.

You wanna take a look at the vix volatility index report actually down one point six percent surprising advertise it was up as much as four percent.
