Fresh update on "whatsapp" discussed on Techmeme Ride Home

"Whereas if you look at the interviews with like leaders of crypto companies, those guys have much more disheveled, whether his hair or dresses or whatever. So he fits into that crowd much better. That's one aspect. Another is, if you are a billionaire, do you really want to be dealing with congressional hearings? Like, my personal theory for why Jeff Bezos stepping down was, I don't want to say, I am the richest person in the world, depending on how stock prices between Amazon and Tesla go. Why am I sitting through the sweating through these hearings, which liabilities to be personally et cetera, et cetera? Let somebody else do it. Right. The Google guys got out first. Saw that first. And that's the other thing is that like we're saying, there is a certain generational thing. All of these folks are in their late 40s and 50s. Zuck notwithstanding. And also, and also they've been doing this for the better part of 20 years. And right, like if your a billionaire, why do you need that hassle? It's more fun as Kevin Rus said to go up in rocket ships and try to go to Mars and stuff like that. Why do you need this hassle? There are more fun things that you can do while still being entrepreneurial and managerial and whatnot. The best part is how Bezos got a taste of this over Zoom because there happened to be a pandemic that seriously enriched them. So he didn't even have to go all the way and fly or anything just to get on a call. And he was already like, nope, not doing that again. By the way, this is just for the audience. That's a meal who you'll recognize from having been on the show lots of times. Also from space casts. Hello Emil. Thank you. Yes. I just wanted to throw in a second point to back up what Chris was saying about scale because this is something that we covered in Bloomberg very easily. It's about Twitter's presence in India. So WhatsApp in India has 530 million users, half a billion people. It's its biggest single biggest market. Predictably enough. You could get everybody in the U.S. to use WhatsApp. And you're getting to like 6% of India. Twitter is the latest reported numbers 17.5 closer to 20 million users in India. And yet its situation in the political discourse in the country mirrors that in the U.S. almost perfectly. Every politician wants to be on Twitter line and then all the TV networks pick those up and that's how the conversation happens. And prime minister and the rent remotely, he has 73 million users which is three times over four times as much as the number of users within the country. So the Diaspora is closely monitoring Twitter. And I can say the same thing about the UK tour is huge in Japan, but I can't tell you anything about it even though I'm here because obviously the language and Twitter Japan is like its own little giant thing cultural thing. So absolutely I feel like this company can not be judged by just a sheer number of users it has, because it has so much in terms of driving the popular conversation, maybe because it's just how easy a quick tweets are to pick up. It's not a multi paragraph statement. It's somebody oftentimes lashing out and just kind of shooting from the hip. And yeah, that's really what I'm trying to say. Quantifiable influence that matter products like Facebook and WhatsApp have. It's very different from the influencer Twitter has. Yeah, I think one thing to just build on that. I just checked, and it's true. Narendra Modi has 73.1 million followers on Twitter, and only on Instagram, 63.5, which is pretty interesting in someone telling more bods on Twitter. Okay, fair, maybe he has a lot more bots there. But still, I think the point is, well, taken on a number of friends. It is still the case that I think that one connectivity is certainly not around the world, what it is in the United States. So there are a lot of places that are still using basic phones to access the Internet or where their electricity is metered, or where access just isn't anything like what we're used to. And so these visual rich mediums, these platforms like Instagram, or even what Oculus is probably going to take require a great deal more reliability in terms of the technological apparatus around this. Whereas like Twitter, I believe, though, I don't know if that's still true. I think you can still interact with over text message over SMS. So it's universality in terms of being able to get and receive updates all around the world, I think is still very, very important, relative to the way in which the Facebook empire has ruled out. But anyways, when you do anything in life, there's one way to do it and then maybe there's a smarter way to do it. You might already be investing in cryptocurrency, but did you know you can trade Bitcoin Ethereum and over 80 other cryptocurrencies in a tax advantaged IRA? With an alto crypto IRA, you can trade crypto like Bitcoin and avoid or defer the taxes. I am a crypto IRA customer have been for over a year. It's how I invested in Solana this year. Alto's crypto IRA is the easy way to get crypto into an IRA. Trade all you want without the tax heading..

"whatsapp" Discussed on Techmeme Ride Home

"Welcome to the technique. Right home for wednesday august eighteenth. Twenty twenty one. I'm brian mccullough. Today a look at how all the various platforms are dealing with. The taliban being a modern social media enterprise amazon is bigger than walmart for the first time ever. Samsung stops cluttering. It's phones with ads. Attempting to hire the hacker. Who hacked you. And i get my answer to why all the platforms went to protect kids all the sudden. Here's what you missed today. In the world of tech. What's app has shut down. The so-called taliban help line in kabul that was allegedly for reporting violence and looting as facebook is also blocking other official taliban channels and quote quoting from the financial times. The complaints number was supposed to act as an emergency hotline for civilians to report violence. Looting or other problems. The taliban advertise the help line on sunday when it captured the city and has used similar whatsapp hotlines in the past. For example when it took over the city of kunduz in two thousand sixteen after taking kabul the taliban pledge to create a stable government and not to harm the quote life property and honor of citizens facebook. what's apps owner said. It had blocked the number on tuesday along with other official taliban channels adding that it was actively scanning group names descriptions and profile pictures on the messaging app to try to prevent the taliban from using it. The social media company added that it's team of native. Dari and pashto speakers was quote helping to identify an alert us to emerging issues on the platform and quote indeed. This is all evolving into a larger question for social media platforms quoting from the verge to give us a rundown of the larger state of play for the major platforms here quote a particular question. Raised by the washington. Post is whether the group will be allowed to rest control of the official facebook and twitter accounts for the government of afghanistan while the taliban has seized effective control over the government. Granting access to official accounts could be seen as legitimising their control over the country despite a number of official bans taliban forces appeared to have embraced tech platforms when reclaiming territory early monday. An official spokesperson for the taliban used twitter to claim control of the capital city of kabul. Saying the situation there was quote under control. The free beacon reported that taliban officials were circulating whatsapp numbers. That could be used by former regime members to coordinate surrender. Although some of those numbers have since been discontinued by what's up. The taliban is officially banned from all facebook services. Including what's at but the services end encryption makes it easy for taliban accounts to avoid moderation action. A whatsapp spokesperson told vice. That moderators would take action. Against violating accounts win moderators became aware of them but without access to use their communications. It is rare that whatsapp would become aware of a taliban account. Twitter does not have a blanket policy on taliban activity but told the verge that it takes action against accounts accounts violating existing rules against violent content or platform manipulation quote. The situation in afghanistan is rapidly evolving. A spokesperson said. We're also witnessing people in the country using twitter to seek help and assistance and quote reached for comment by the verge. Youtube said it terminates. All taliban-linked accounts based on its interpretation of us sanctions law quote. Youtube complies with all applicable sanctions and trade compliance laws including relevant. Us sanctions a representative said as such if we find an account believed to be owned and operated by the afghan taliban re terminated and quote facebook has designated the taliban as dangerous organization which means it removes accounts representing the group and prohibits praise or support of it in user posts. The company has devoted more resources to enforcing that policy in light of the ongoing unrest in kabul. Still the company said in his waiting for guidance from outside organizations as to whether the taliban should be recognized as the defacto government of afghanistan and.

For the social media company it also signals a rocky path forward for legislators both sides of the aisle trying to rein in big tech here to break down. the latest development is recode serene ghaffari high serene. Hey adam so let's start with the lawsuits. What were they about yes. The lawsuits basically accused facebook of acting as a monopoly to crush. Its competition two different lawsuits. One was filed by the federal trade commission or the ftc which is the top government agency for enforcing antitrust laws. And then there was a parallel lawsuit also filed by forty eight attorneys general from different states and territories in the us and they both essentially said the same thing that facebook's allegedly monopolistic practices leave consumers with less choices for which social networking apps. They wanna use and advertisers have less choices for aware. They want actually advertise reach. People lawsuits also said that. Facebook engage in a quote systemic strategy to eliminate their competition and that this was something really tactical that facebook was actively doing crush its competitors. What exactly did that strategy look like so. The lawsuit said that when facebook bought instagram. Back in two thousand twelve and remember at that time. Instagram was a startup. it was considered an up and coming rival to facebook They said that that was an example of something that facebook shouldn't have been allowed to do because in regulators view this was essentially facebook trying to stifle competition by eating it up and buying it rather than letting market competitor truly compete and they also point to win. Facebook bought the messaging app called whatsapp in two thousand fourteen. Again this up and coming service. That was rivaling. facebook and facebook went ahead and bought it today. More people are on. What's app than they are on facebook's own messenger product but that doesn't matter for facebook because it's all part of the facebook ecosystem now

"Last time the APP had been used. The information was spelled out in the updated terms and conditions for what's up but then the average person and I include myself in. This rarely gives the old T and see anything more than a cursory glance and I'm sure that is even being generous. I suspect many of you and again I am not leaving myself out here. Skip right on down to that. Little check box that turns us all into big Ole Liars. You know the check box I mean is the one that says yes sure. I read all that stuff. While in the mass of text in these terms and services there was a message about how to opt out of this data sharing feature this idea of sharing your information for the purposes of ads but again it was kind of buried in the bottom of that terms and conditions. It really sounded like Mark Zuckerberg was pulling out the old darth vader routine. You know the I have altered the deal. Pray I do not alter it further than just like Lando Yawn and Bryan. Were probably feeling that this deal is getting worse. All the time and they weren't the only ones the European Union would end up finding facebook more than one hundred million dollars for collecting that information. They ordered the company to knock it off in the EU the EU is generally far more protective of personal information than places like the United States. But this really shouldn't come. As a surprise to anyone. Facebook has long pursued a goal of aligning its various properties to maximize the payoff. It's also what drove the creators of instagram away. They would leave facebook largely because they had been told that instagram would remain. Its own thing and that they wouldn't be asked to either incorporate features to Instagram Norwood. Facebook a tip to integrate instagram features in facebook. Only that's pretty much what facebook did do. Well the WADS APP. Creators were facing a similar situation in September. Two Thousand Seventeen Brian. Acton had had enough he chose to leave facebook and this wasn't expensive decision. He was six months away from having his shoulders. Vest with the company. Those shares were worth around eight hundred fifty million dollars but the agreement also hinged upon facebook holding up their end of the deal which included an agreement not to implement quote monetization initiatives into quote without the founders agreement but then a lawyer for facebook argued that the company was. Just you know exploring the possibility of monetization. They weren't actually implementing anything yet so acted couldn't just grab his shares because they hadn't done anything they're just talking about. It's just talk and rather than fight act and walked away. He left behind almost a billion dollars. Yon coon stuck with facebook for six more months and he left after his shares invested. But he did leave in two thousand eighteen. He also resigned his seat. From the board of directors for facebook between actions departure and combs the Cambridge analytica scandal also had become world news. Acton gained even more attention because he called people to their facebook accounts hashtag delete facebook comb kept quiet and when he left. He said he would be pursuing his other interests which include collecting very expensive very fast cars since then other whatsapp executives who were either with the company pre facebook acquisition or post have left and combs replacement. A man named Chris. Daniels would leave in two thousand nineteen along with his boss. A facebook named Chris Cox who at one time was thought of as a possible replacement. Ceo If Zuckerberg were to ever step down. This was after Zuckerberg had announced plans to realign facebook. A focus on private messaging and it did little to make people feel better about what was going on over. There will.

"Advertising and one that wouldn't hold onto user data like messages and then turn it into a money generating Ad Platform. This is part of why facebook tacked on that additional three billion dollars to the sixteen billion dollar asking price that yawn and Bryan had demanded. This was all in an effort to convince the staff of what's up to stay on to come over to facebook and continued to work on the WHATSAPP service so it pushed up the price up to nineteen billion dollars and this deal was based largely on facebook stock shares and those stocks actually increased in value before the deal was finally closed. So really when you look at it to twenty two billion dollars when it was all said and done in an amazing symbolic move. The founders would sign the agreement for this acquisition outside the building where combs mother would stand in line to get her allotment of food stamps. Which is a heck of a rags to riches Jeremy Food Stamps to billionaire in addition Zuckerberg promised Yawn and Brian? That facebook wouldn't make any move to incorporate advertising and watts up for five years and that they would run. Everything by the founders. I and that the company would be able to operate pretty independently from the rest of facebook. Whatsapp should be able to do. Its own thing now. If this sounds familiar to you it might be because they said the same thing to instagram. When facebook acquired instagram that was the same messaging and like instagram. The founders of WHATSAPP would become increasingly disenchanted with facebook's moves over time around the same time that they were getting acquired. The WHATSAPP founders. Were also looking to incorporate. End To end. Encryption in WHATSAPP messaging provides a level of security in though. It's by no means perfect. So let me explain what I mean by that. So within to end encryption you have someone typing in a message into watts. Up and that message gets scrambled or encrypted in a predetermined way. It's encoded the person on the other end can only de Scramble that message if they hold the appropriate key the decoder and in this case only the recipient would possess that particular decoder. The process itself establishes the keys. And it's a bit complicated but you should just know that the process allows both the parties to hold an encoder and decoder. That's unique to their communication. No one else has that that Decoder so it means that if anyone were to intercept a message in transit that person would only be able to see the encrypted scrambled version it would be meaningless. They might know the origin of the message and they might know the destination that message but they wouldn't know what was actually in the message itself which is good. This is an important component insecure communications. However it is not a bulletproof vest against eavesdroppers and spies and hackers. That's because someone could target the end devices in other words the phones or you know the phone of the person making the message of the phone of the person receiving the message. If the hacker does that if they can exploit of vulnerability in that device then they can potentially read messages once they get unencrypted on the other side so the message in transit would be difficult to suss out but the hackers have bypass that they're going straight to an end point. They're getting the information through the phone. Not Pulling the communication out of the air. Here's what makes matters worse in the old days you could follow good browsing protocol and avoid most of these traps. You know things like don't go to websites you don't know don't open links from strange sources that kind of thing but in the world of APPs with push notifications. It's possible to either sneak an APP into an APP store that pushes out malware automatically if you've enabled push notifications for that APP. Then your phone would just take care of all that on its own or maybe you could even find a vulnerability in an existing APP and hide some malware that way and then you have a big install base that could receive a push notification that could potentially make their phones more vulnerable. This isn't great now. My point is that end to end. Encryption is not the ultimate insecurity but frequently gets presented that way so if the messages hey we can read your messages. Because they're encrypted. That's not necessarily true on top of that you have governments around the world including the United States pushing companies that run encryption communication services to include a back door method of access for official government agents and investigators government agencies argue that this is necessary so that intelligence officers can detect potential threats. But there's a general rule of thumb that we should all keep in mind and that is security. Vulnerabilities are a bad thing. Intentional or otherwise because a back door is a security just by its very nature it allows someone to bypass the security measures that are in place to protect users. That's the same thing that hackers look for. When they're probing systems for vulnerabilities except in this case the vulnerability is purposefully created an implemented by the service provider. And you can bet that if such back doors are created armies of hackers will be seeking out ways to exploit those back doors so even if you have a deep trust of intelligence agencies doing the right thing and if you do have a trust and intelligence agencies doing the right thing you might want to rethink that you should keep in mind. It's not just the quote unquote good guys. Who will want to use these back doors? So anyway I'll get off the high horse. Moreover around the same time that WHATSAPP was incorporating into end encryption as be around two thousand sixteen facebook was making another big change. Watts APP would be sharing some user data with facebook which in turn would be using that data in an effort to serve up targeted ads to facebook users. This was a big shift. One that was controversial among whatsapp users. And the tech world in general really as well as within WHATSAPP that being said. According to the press release the data being shared would be limited it would include the phone number which for WHATSAPP is equivalent to a username and the last time the APP had been used. The information was spelled out in the updated terms and conditions for what's up but then the average person and I include myself.

"They included the ability for iphone users to send photos over. What's up and they also saw that when they were charging that dollar for the APP people were still downloading the APP. They were still paying that dollar and they realized that maybe they could make this continue as paid APP. The general strategy was that. What's that would be free to users for the first year but after that year users would be required to pay a one dollar subscription fee for the next year and every year after that they would renew with another one dollar. Now when you compare that to the amount of money they might be spending on text messaging fees. That was nothing so the money was coming in one other really big decision. That acting in Qom agreed upon. Is that the APP would never ever include advertising. They both felt that adds. Were a bad idea that it would ruin the experience and the just felt wrong Bryan even left a note for Yawn with the phrase no ads. No Games no gimmicks and yawn would thumb tack that to his desk acted felt passionately that the experience shouldn't be diluted by these things or monetize in those ways and yon agreed. The downside of that approach is that it was harder to make. Money Co enact weren't really about to make the rounds with the press. They didn't want to do that either. They didn't try to do. Pr blasts or anything like that. The service was picking up steam from users all by itself. Venture capitalists actually sought out the CO founders and the two of them resisted the overtures of these investors for a while. They were worried that people coming in with investment money would make demands that they compromise on their service they were also worried that investors would make them have to incorporate ads or somehow change things beyond what their vision was for WHATSAPP. They did eventually make an agreement with the investment firm sequoia around the funding that amounted to eight million dollars after they were assured. The firm with only act in a strategic advisor capacity internally. The company continued to grow slowly over the first couple of years by two thousand fourteen. When facebook would swoop in the company boasted fifty five employees about half of them were engineers working on whatsapp services and the rest were essentially customer service representatives who are providing support in dozens of languages. The user numbers were growing really fast but the company itself was still very small. They would eventually move to a nondescript office building there was no sign indicating the company was even there and it was the sort of place you had to know about. Before you visited or else you might just spend all day just looking for it. The whole endeavour was keeping of fairly low profile in two thousand thirteen one year before facebook's acquisition acted in Qom decided to hold another round of funding. By that time the service was really going strong from a user standpoint they boasted two hundred million active users by the beginning of two thousand thirteen and an active user is someone who uses a service at least once a month as Yang would say active users are. What's important not registered users because anyone can register to a service and become a user but then never touched the APP or service again so a registered account doesn't really mean much active users are how you should measure success because it shows that those people depend upon and hopefully like whatever it is you are offering. The CO founders had decided on this secret round of funding. Because they wanted to make certain there was money in the company in order to make payroll ACTON was remembering the lessons. He picked up from his mother's freight forwarding business. So with this round. They raised another fifty million dollars at the time. The company had eight point two five seven million dollars in its accounts which means that they actually still had more money than the original eight point. Two five million dollars that had been invested in it but it wasn't like WHATSAPP was raking in enormous revenue. It was stable. It was generating income and profit at least some quarters that was profitable but it wasn't what you'd call a runaway success from a profit perspective.

What's important not registered users because anyone can register to a service and become a user but then never touched the APP or service again so a registered account doesn't really mean much active users are how you should measure success because it shows that those people depend upon and hopefully like whatever it is you are offering. The CO founders had decided on this secret round of funding. Because they wanted to make certain there was money in the company in order to make payroll ACTON was remembering the lessons. He picked up from his mother's freight forwarding business. So with this round. They raised another fifty million dollars at the time. The company had eight point two five seven million dollars in its accounts which means that they actually still had more money than the original eight point. Two five million dollars that had been invested in it but it wasn't like WHATSAPP was raking in enormous revenue. It was stable.

"To think back a little bit. It's not necessarily as common now but a decade ago it was not unusual for phone companies to charge customers for text messaging. Some still do phone. Plans varied some allowed for a certain number of text messages per month. Then if you went over that then you would have to pay a fee. Possibly a small fee per additional text message others were pay as you go and a here in the United States could range between ten to thirty cents per text message. A few plans allowed for unlimited texts. But you're probably paying a lot more for that plan and then there was the policy that to this day. I think is a total scam. Which is that. You would get charged for sending out too many texts. I kind of understand that I mean in a way. I think it's kind of you know stone-age policy but I understand it from a certain perspective however you would also get fees for receiving texts. Not Reading them just receiving them. So how is that fair? A how is it fair for a carrier charge you both for sending and receiving taxed in fact if both people on a text message conversation were using the same phone carrier. It was possible for that carrier to collect on both these sending and the receiving side of a text message. This would be like if you were receiving a letter in the mail you had to pay for the stamp. They were double dipping for the same communication charging both parties. And that's rotten. If you ask me but it gets even more expensive. If you're trying to communicate with someone who happens to be in another country now here in the United States. The average person might not do that too frequently. A lot of people do but I'd say the vast average of the United States citizens were communicating within the US in places like the European Union where citizens in an e EU country can travel freely to other EU countries to work or to study. It's not unusual at all to have to communicate with someone who's in another country. Sms messages that is text messages are ineffective way to communicate succinctly but those text fees could get pretty hefty or at least they were at the very bottom line a nuisance and what's got around that messages were sent through the APP not as SMS messages. So if you connected to Wifi with your smartphone you weren't even using the data on your cell phone plan so you could Nelson messages for free through the status updates. You didn't have to worry about those text fees and the log in for Watts up was just your phone number. You didn't need a username. It was a great work around on its own people loved it like you knew the phone numbers you want to text. You just did it through Watson and you avoided having to do all that nonsense with the SMS fees acted in. Qom began to work on. Fleshing out Watson so that it wasn't an ad hoc messaging system but rather a purpose built messaging system act also reached out to several of his former yahoo colleagues and he raised some investment money to the tune of a quarter of a million dollars. Two hundred fifty thousand dollars. He officially joined watts up in November. Two thousand nine now. What's shifted toward being a messaging service users could reach out to people in their address list who also had the APP and send text messages over Wi fi for free. They could send out group messages to contacting a bunch of people at once instead of one at a time and there was this great double check feature. You would get one check. When WHATSAPP detected that your message had been received by the other party you would get another one when that message was read. You didn't have to worry about a message getting lost in the either. If you send a text message the only way you know the person actually got it is if they responded this way you could actually see if they got it you could see if they responded or see if they read it and if they hadn't read it you would be like. Hey what is going on here you know whether or not it made it to the correct. Us nation to expand beyond the crowd. The founders reached out to a developer named Chris Pifer. He was getting to work on another version of the APP but it wasn't for android because android hat and really gained a lot of traction yet. It would become an enormous part of WHATSAPP strategy. Further down the line but at this time hardly anyone was running around with an android phone. I mean I was but I'm a Dork. Not many other people were doing it. Pifer was able to create a blackberry version of what's up because yeah back then. Blackberry was still a powerhouse in smartphones. You have to remember that before. The iphone came along in two thousand. Seven blackberry was practically the only smartphone game in town. That's an exaggeration. But it's not much of one. Blackberry was pretty much it when it came to smartphones pre iphone. They set up a temporary office space and they continued to work on the APP. Meanwhile more people were beginning to discover. What's out and IT I. It wasn't a moneymaker at all. In fact it was mostly a drain on combs personal resources as part of the very process when signing up new users. What's that would send an old school. Sms text message to that users phone with verification but the company had to pay for this service and depending upon where that end user was it could get expensive because a message to a place like the Middle East might cost sixty five cents per message and yeah a little more than half. A dollar isn't much all on its own but when you consider that thousands and later millions and tens of millions and then hundreds of millions of people were signing up. Those costs begin to add up. Sometimes the APP would be available for free sometimes. It was a paid APP so what was going on. Why did people have to pay for it? Sometimes and sometimes it was just available for free. This wasn't necessarily a revenue strategy. It kind of laws but it was also way of metering adoption. And what I mean by that. Is that the founders. Were using the paid option. Help slow down growth. When things were getting out of hand they would see a ton of people adopting WHATSAPP and in order to slow things sounded. Say All right. Let's switch it to a paid up and it was not necessarily to make money although that was definitely welcome but it was more to say. Let's slow things down because fewer people are going to download it if we charge for it so they charge like a dollar for the APP and if the adoption began to a spike they would flip that switch. They'd make it a paid APP and when things calm down they would switch it back down to free by the end of two thousand nine..
