Why Is It so Difficult To Ask For 'Big Help'?
"This topic wanna talk about this week. Asking for big help came as many things do from our facebook group. Facebook dot com slash groups slash. What fresh cast. Julie is one of our listeners. She asked when have you asked for big help lately. And what's the breaking point. I'd never heard this term. Big help before. I think she was making it up but i loved it. Because it's one of these things like we know what it is when we see it. Well what do you think it is. What is big helped me to you. Amy big help is. Can you fly across the country to help me right now because my spouse is in the hospital and my kid just broke his leg. Big help is Can you know me considerable amount of money right like big help. It's two o'clock in the morning. can you come to. My baby has a fever and can use it with the toddler. Yeah pick up a prescription on the way over. Yeah like shortlist. Big ask and i want to pick apart why. This is hard for us. Because everybody i think at some point if you're a parent is going to be on the asking side of big help. And on the receiving side of that ask and being on the receiving side kind of feels. Good most of the time and so. I don't know why we get so wrapped up on is this big enough. Is my need big enough. That i can ask that. It's much more painful to be the asker than i think it should be. And i think there are reasons for that. But i'm curious about that because having been on the receiving side of that two. Am call. you are happy to help you. Happy to be of help. So let's talk about. Why asking is hard. There's a book called may asking for help in times of need nora bouchard wrote that book and she suggests i like these couple of ideas that asking for help requires surrendering control. I think it means that this problem is bigger than i can handle. This is more than i could do. Right moms are supposed to be able to handle it. All juggle everything at once. Nope this is more than i can handle being perceived as needy yes. I don't know if that's what's holding me from like you know pressing call on my phone. Okay it's pride. Yeah there's a huge amount of pride that goes into it. I've got this is a big part of our

S6 E8 - Life: TBD
"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions. After leaving the military in the lack of answers has left you frustrated in probably more than a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of what can sometimes be craziness that is your life after the military. See you can turn your post military life into your best life. Now when i was working on this show. I thought you know. I don't even know what this next. Show season six episode. Eight is going to be about so in the show. Topic is making my notes. I just put to be determined. Dvd to be determined. And i thought you know what that is a perfect title or or maybe more appropriately. I think it's a good topic especially right now as it feels like we are nearing the end of this year. Long over a year now global pandemic that is covid nineteen and the truth is it's it feels like our lives have been in a to be determined status for that entire time right so you can't go anywhere you can't really get out of the house much. Could there's not a lot to do now if you like the outdoors. Maybe this was the perfect time for you to do that. but you wanna go shopping. You want to go out to dinner somewhere. We'll sorry you can't because everything is closed so our lives of felt like we're in a to be determined status but you know pandemic aside. Maybe you're wondering some more practical things you know. Maybe you're wondering if you ever be happy or if you ever get married or if you'll ever have kids or maybe you're wondering if the tonight is in your ears. Whatever shut up. I know i wonder sometimes. Or if you're ptsd symptoms will ever subside. I'm willing to bet that you felt an and maybe you're feeling right now that your life is on hold it. It's all in this kind of this murky to be determined status so my question to you is this. How will you know when your life is no longer on. Hold in this episode. I'm gonna share six elements of forward progress with you and buckle up. Because they're not easy. But i can assure you they are worth it. So by way of introduction mining aaron perkins. I'm a us army combat veteran also hosted. This podcast. I've been focusing on the veteran community. You basically ever. Since i got out you know i should be more honest with that right for a very long time after i got out on myself and focused on figuring out what my next steps were what my forward progress looked like once. I finally kind of got a handle on what my own life was looking like or what. It should look like what i wanted it to look like. I thought you know what. I can't keep this to myself. This is not something that i can say. Okay well i figured it out. All my other veteran brothers and sisters can just figure it out for themselves. So i wrote a book called resolve. That is a step by step guide. That takes you through the process of rediscovering purpose after the military but that aside today i want to talk about something really specific and and and a lot of the elements of the book. Come into to today's show. But i want to talk about those six elements afford progress with you. So look no matter where you're at you can live your best life. No matter what phase your life is in your best days are ahead of you and that and that's a key element and it leads right into this first piece. I want to talk about. Get your mind right. And i know you've heard so much about it. No doubt about mindset and how important your mindset is and how much it matters this. Honestly the most important aspect. Because if you don't get your mind right you are setting yourself up for failure if you are going into any challenge. Excuse me any challenge in your life. And you haven't i said okay. Let me you visualize what i'm going to do. Maybe let me rehearse it so to speak. Let me planet out now. Let me go tackle it. If you don't do those things then you are really like. I said setting yourself up to fail but more important than all those all. Those things i just mentioned is what comes before that and that is believing that you're going to be successful. So here's the thing when it comes to mind set right. It is not just a one time event. It's not just this decision. You make to say okay. Well i'm going to be Positive in this particular in this particular regard or I am going to say okay. I'm gonna change my mindset for this one time only. I know i normally have a negative outlook and i think that nothing is going to go my way and i it seems like life is crashing in on me but this one time. I'm going to believe it's going to get better. It's going to be better. Look your mindset. it's a regular event. It's not just a one time event. Maybe it's daily. It might be several times a day. Mindset is absolutely huge and a big part of the mindset is asking the why behind your desire to move forward or more specifically than. This is where i told you some elements of the book will come in. Maybe even the why try and so in the resolve book So i put together for the book. What is called the nine line framework. It is a guide a plan for you. The veteran to step through one step at a time for rediscovering your purpose after the military and line one in this nine line framework is why. Try you know we've already had purpose. We've already done so many things for our country and for allies for families. Why try and that. And that's one of the questions you have to answer in the book. I share more about how to get to that point right but element too so i wanna get your mind right get that mindset all clicking in the right direction element to is discover your purpose and you've heard me talk about a few times you've heard me say that discovery purpose rediscover your purpose even on this show on this episode and again talk a lot about this in the book and i wrote it with the belief that you do not have to suffer through life after the military. I'm going to say that again. You do not have to just suffer through life after the military because there is life after your military service you know. Maybe it's a whole new career or a whole new hobby or new opportunities. You simply couldn't take advantage of you. Were in the military purpose. Looks different for all of us. When i'm friends he was a medic In my unit that we deployed with and he is. He's big into fishing like that's his thing now. I'm not talking like you know. He just goes allen out on the lake every now and then this guy is a competitive fishermen really really great at his skill set and he has found a renewed sense of purpose just in fishing. And you know what is he doing. They're right what is he who what does he really getting at when you look at it like well okay. Cool like he's into fishing. But what does that mean as far as you know his life moving forward or discovering his purpose. Look here's what. Here's what i can guarantee you. In his life in his his new fishing fishing centric life right. He's got a family and everything that he's taking care of but this this is one of the best things for him because he has a passion for it and in that passion he gets to live out what he is really loving about his life and so in his day to day life where he gets to talk about fishing and and go fishing and all this. He's building these relationships with people around him and he's doing so much that it is. It's so cool to see when a veteran really really discover is in uncovers who they're meant to be after the military and again purpose different for all of us. So where i find my purpose are where my old dock mimetic buddy found purpose and fishing. Yours is probably going to be the same and don't expect it to. You shouldn't expect it to look the same as anyone else's that's why again that i created the framework that you can use to discover your own sense of purpose and the next element that leads me right into this. One is forgive. Look forgiveness is one of the least talked about aspects of transitioning from the military and it is arguably the hardest i say arguably because some people never even come close to really dialing into what it is. They need to forgive. They need to forgive themselves. Do they need to forgive. You know an old battle buddy Unit commander you know those who've been victims of trauma or If they have. Ptsd from their from their combat service. You know what are the elements of their lives that they need to forgive and again you know i feel like i'm talking about the book a lot and i'll be honest i am because there's so much more in the book and this is line three it walks you right through the process of forgiveness and forgiveness is not saying you know what it doesn't hurt it's not saying it wasn't a big deal. Forgiveness is choosing your own freedom. And i think i said this on the last episode of but holding onto unforgiveness or or bitterness even is like setting yourself on fire and expecting the person you were bitter at or angry at or holding a grudge against expecting them to die from smoke inhalation so all forgiveness is as tough as it may be all it is all it breaks down to is that you are choosing your own freedom so get your mind right. Discover your purpose and forgive what you need to forgive. Forgive who you need to forgive. Maybe that's you. Maybe that's someone else helmet four. Uncover you in other words. Understand how you tick. What types of choices do you make in specific situations and one of the best tools for this is a personality assessment and yes. That's part of the book as well. That's part of the nine line. Framework is discovering your personality. Because let's be honest in the military you know. Personality is fine when you're hanging out with your friends or your battle buddies or whatever you want to call them right but when it comes to getting the mission done your personality kind of takes a backseat. It seems to knocking out the mission to getting to mission success getting to mission completion and so a big part of your post military life like who am i to figuring out what it is that you are not only passionate about. But what are you naturally geared toward and in the book. I use a tool called sixteen personalities. And you can check out at sixteen personalities dot com that's one six personalities dot com. There's also a myers briggs assessment. There's the disk assessment. Which kind of is how you function in a work environment and so uncovering who you are and the key elements of your personality are really critical to your moving forward in life that brings me to the fifth element. Make a plan. The fifth element of moving forward in your life is to make a plan. Don't just imagine a plan get one now. Look i want to say something about plans here. Right it's a whole lot easier to turn to the left or to the right if you're already moving. Have you ever set in a vehicle. You're sitting in the driver's seat and you turn the wheel all the way to the left. It's kinda hard to do or maybe you need to turn it all the way to the right. It's kind of hard to do because the tires just kind of moving on the on the on the surface there and you're like this is. This is really really difficult. But if you're moving you can turn the wheel just slightly to the left or to the right in. It's a whole lot easier. So when i talk about making a plan you don't have to have every single thing figured out before you start moving. Make general plan now. Look there are a lot of great plans out there. The resolve book has just one of those. Which i've mentioned is the nine line framework. Now let me be honest with you here. Scrawling down your plan on the back of a cocktail. Napkin is about one hundred miles ahead of someone who never writes down their plan at all. There is a fundamental shift in our brains in imagining a plan and then writing out that plan so make a plan element six get accountability. Accountability is like magic. If there is some magic element to rediscovering your purpose and to moving forward in your life. Accountability is really kind of that magic. And you really get to kind of see behind the curtain so to speak and it's kind of the inner workings of how that m- all that magic happens and accountability can compel you to do things. You would not ordinarily do so take for example of a group of friends right so every saturday you go for run with those friends and you know you have to get up at five thirty. Am and it's saturday and you really have to work today. But you're getting up at five five thirty because you're going to go for a run with these friends and it's not just about the run. It's about the fact that if you don't show up there to give you a hard time about dude where were you like. Why were you not here. This is this is ridiculous right. And they're gonna they're gonna mess with you about it and and if you're a guy that they're gonna call out your man card and be like. Hey you know like we showed up. Why didn't you and so the there's this element of like men getting up at five. Am to go run now. If you're like a big into running and you do it anyway. Maybe this story doesn't resonate with you but for most of us. It probably does so. We're supposed to be showing up to this run right and we're like okay. Well here we go. Let's go tackle this thing but Man tired. I don't know if i want to do at this morning at saturday. I've gotten up early every single day this week. I have a hard all man. I just remembered these guys are going to be there. And i had better show up. Or they're going to give me a hard time and the thing is sometimes. It's fun accountability. It's it's light hearted but sometimes it's someone pointing their finger at you and saying. Hey why aren't you doing what you need to do or challenging you to say. Hey here's the next step for you. Here is what you need to be doing in your life. Go do it so element. Six is get account ability. So let me quickly go over these one more time number one. Get your mind right. Your mindset is critical and big critical part of that is asking the uae. Or the why tri- why should i even bother element to discover your purpose. How do you do that. Well one way you can do. That is pick up a copy of the resolve book. I go through that whole process. There and that process is called the nine line framework part of that nine line. Framework is forgiveness. One of the least talked about aspects of transitioning from the military. But i think one of the most critical element for uncover. You check out a personality assessment. Again you can look in the show. Notes shared a couple of links in there and you can use sixteen personalities. Dot com myers briggs disc assessment of variety. Once you can use but uncover how you naturally tick element five. Make a plan. don't just imagine it. Don't just think it write it down if you write it on the back of a cocktail napkin. That's fine at least write it down and remember. You don't have to have everything figured out before you actually start moving. It's a whole lot easier to make adjustments if you're already moving file element here elements six. Get accountability and accountability. Is that magic simultaneously that magic and it is the secret behind everything else that happens in your life. Can you do things without accountability. Sure is it a whole lot harder absolutely because again accountability. Is this thing in our minds. Says hey someone else's relying on you to do this to be that saturday morning. Run to show up at work to be at that volunteer opportunity. You promised you would be at an an again accountability. I cannot stress enough. i wish i could. I guess technically i could shout and scream and throw things and you know you know bangel desk and things like that but really accountability is so huge and it takes a certain level of maturity. It takes a certain level of maturity for to do that. Now look we all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith. In jesus christ while i hope these elements have helped you. I hope they hope you think about not only whether you should move forward in life but what your next steps. Are you're practical next steps. Four moving forward in life. And i'm going to ask you specifically right now to go. Pick up a copy of resolve at courage to fight again dot com.

Twitter Doesn't Want Trump's Tweets, but the National Archives Does
"When a presidency ends the national archives and record administration's work begins. That's an agency that plays a key role in transferring millions of records and artifacts from the departing white house. And they even archive. The twitter accounts. Now belong to a previous administration. The national archives technically has to preserve president trump's tweets. But how exactly do you do that when he's no longer on the platform to begin with well. If you think trump's upset about getting impeached imagine felt the other day when twitter announce that they're permanently suspending his account. A lifetime ban. Explain is quint ford. Year reporter politico. Hey quint hey tony. Thanks for having me so tell me what happens. Typically when president leaves office maybe. When barack obama left office what happened to his tweets. Sure this all goes back to something. Called the presidential records act of nineteen seventy eight presidential records serve as a vital resource for the researchers and historians who document our nation's history. These documents provide insight into how and why critical decisions are made at the highest level of our democratic government. And at the end of the obama administration it was decided that the tweets and social media postings from these accounts such as at podesta which he'd seen on twitter. The presidential official facebook account are going to be preserved. As part of presidential wreckers. Got it okay. So what's the big deal with trump in particular the big deal with trump. Is that as you said real. Donald trump is no longer on twitter. And the way nahra which is the acronym for the national archives and records administration likes to preserve. These tweets is by making an archived account of them on twitter.

"Listeners. It's brett molina. Welcome back to talking tech my co host. Mike snyder is off today. So when you think about video games you're likely thinking about younger people. You know kids who play video games like mario kart or maybe you know kids that are in high school or college. They play older games like call of duty and madden and other stuff like that. Maybe it's your kids. Maybe it's your grandkids who knows but that's typically the audience we think of when we think about video games but something interesting is happening though which is a lot more. Seniors are starting to get into video games or have been playing for a while and they're continuing to do it even as they get older case in point A story. I wrote on tech dot. Usa today dot com about michelle stadium. Who is a grandmother of two in washington state. she goes by the nickname technical. Grandma she when she's not taking care of her grandkids. She is a budding video game. Streamer the fifty eight year old has cultivated a following on platforms like tiktok worship post highlights of her adventures in games. Like the first person shooter call of duty warzone. If you're not familiar with this game it is basically they take one hundred players and they drop them into one area and the last person to survive wins So stadium goes on different platforms such as facebook gaming and twitch and she has a really solid following there but it's tiktok where she has really blossomed as a recording.

Valuing and Monetizing Products and Services with Jon Manning
"Driving today. Our guest is john manning and here are three things you want to know about john before we start. He is the founder of pricing prophets. Which is a group. I was proud to be part of for couple of years a long long time ago. He's in charge of pricing at m y o b and. He's the author of a brand new book overcoming flocks. In austin i have palpitation.

Would if you're in the world of crossing it made the habit of estimating something as valueless so it's a perfect world for pricing surprises me. Sometimes when i've shown people the cover of my book straight away said oh folks on the hill fixation. it's one letter longer than antibodies establishmentarian ism which makes it the longest word in the english language but the evolution of the bulk from that perspective. It's a really applicable title for the book. Because i was during processing workshops for accelerators and every year or every six months. I'd go into a classroom and ask people what their pricing model was for the startup. And i said crossing muddle. We're gonna get youtube. Subscribers and facebook followers in twitter likes and stuff like that will monetize light up and sure enough if you ask them to get their business model canvas which side old don as part of their accelerated costs the revenue box on the business. Model canvas was empty. Now you and. I both work with people and we know that you know. There's a problem to be solved. Some more thinking was the way to solve. This is actually build a dedicated value by pricing canvas. If that fill out that box on the the business model canvas have a crack at filling out this canvas

Almost Corwin hey, cast more in March of last year when the full extent of the pandemic was just beginning to be understood. Google's Seattle officers ordered their white collar workforce to work from home. Amazon, Facebook and others soon followed. Now Google is slowly turning the lights back on. They're starting to open up offices and move employees in on a volunteer basis. Jennifer you Elias is tech reporter for CNBC dot com.

DoorDash Drivers Game Algorithm to Increase Pay
"For the delivery app. Door dash may have found a way to trick the algorithm that serves them jobs into offering better pave bloomberg profile their effort which is called hashtag declined now they encourage other drivers to decline all the lowest paid jobs to get the app to offer more money but to make it work. They need lots of drivers on board and that can be tricky with gig workers. They don't share a break room after all instead they're getting together online and facebook groups and on reddit. Lindsay cameron is a professor of management at the wharton school. Who studies gig. Workers and work doesn't uber driver herself for awhile. So there's no way for workers to have worker to worker communication via the app itself. There's no slack line or anything like that. So the few times workers are able to connect. It can be in person you know. I met other ride hailing drivers when i was at a parking lot or at the expect inspections station and beyond that. It's usually just these online forms. Which only a minority of drivers are active on the forms but for the people that are on the forms. These are really you know. They're like the virtual water cooler where people can share tips. How the platform has changed things like that now. Also gig workers instead of having a traditional boss or supervisor direct their work they are dictated by algorithms. That aren't always the most transparent. So to what extent or or gig workers able to sort of tease out. How these algorithms work as workers. You're just sort of doing these best guesses about you know based on your lived experience what you think the surge prices were gonna be or what do you think is a fair amount to except for delivery and then you're sort of guiding you're sort of making your own rules about what feels right to you or what's the best way to respond to the algorithm based on what you yourself you know are experiencing through your everyday work and
Justice Clarence Thomas Hits Big Tech With Call For Regulation
"Thomas in a concurrence this week. Argued that the time is coming to regulate these big tech operations. Facebook, Twitter Google You name it now, the case that he was concurring. The The decision to vacate a lower court's ruling on was a case involving President Donald Trump. And whether or not he had violated First Amendment rights of users he blocked on Twitter. But in the context of that case that was in front of the Supreme Court. You had Something written by Clarence Thomas. That is just spectacular. Absolutely spectacular. Justice Thomas wrote. As Twitter made clear, the right to cut off speech lies most powerful E in the hands of digital platforms, private digital platforms. The extent to which that power matters for the purposes of the First Amendment and the extent to which that power could be lawfully mob a modified raise interesting and important questions. One of the analogies he used in in this piece. Was was was a reference to the ability to to avoid certain restrictions. But at the end of the day what Thomas was talking about was saying, Essentially, these folks are operating like utilities. They're operating like utilities, and the idea that you can cut that off the idea that you could modify that the idea that you could do those things that do not protect the First Amendment right of the folks. It's no good. You'll get. Some tech platforms are sufficiently akin to carriers such as telephone companies that if tech platforms were regulated like utilities, they could be forced to do away with moderation standards they currently use a traditional telephone company laid physical wires to create a network connecting people. Thomas wrote. Digital platforms, late information infrastructure that can be controlled. In much the same way went on to
"facebook" Discussed on TechStuff
"So i mentioned before the break that it gets worse and early in this episode. I alluded to the concept of targeted advertising and this gets into another aspect of algorithms on facebook that can be harmful okay so the basic idea behind targeted advertising is really simple and the goal is to get the right ads in front of the right people. The goal is always to increase the odds that someone is going to act upon that ad otherwise advertising is just throwing money away right so going back to my billboard example from earlier there's only so much targeting. You can do with billboards now. You might choose to put up an ad on a billboard. That's in part of town that most closely matches the demographic of your average customer. Meaning the people that you cater to happen to live in a certain part of town so it makes more sense to put your billboard in that part of town but that's a pretty primitive approach to targeted advertising. Facebook provides a laser focused individual precision approach. Every user activity on facebook gives facebook more information about the user in question and what they like which is obvious but we need to start there so the pages that you visit on facebook the posts you interact with on facebook the general information in your profile like your birth date near location your relationship status all of these are valuable pieces of information. You can actually go into facebook's settings and the ad preferences page and you can see what. Facebook has deduced about. You know the the company will list out what it thinks you're interests are so you can see. Oh this is why. I'm getting all of those ads for such and such. It's because facebook. thanks. I'm really interested in that for example when i was first getting into exercising which i really need to get back to would serve me up all these ads for things like muscle enhancement protein. Shake things they're all. These insanely buffed dudes popping up on my facebook profile newsfeed and i was like well. Good on you guys. You've done some great work. But that's not really. It's not really my jam but anyway that that is one way that facebook starts to build out information on you. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Facebook also has marketing partners. A lot of marketing partners and these partners are also collecting information about the people who are visiting their pages and their habits including stuff like what items people might purchased or perhaps just searched for or looked at like. Think of something that you've searched for maybe on site like amazon. And you're looking at stuff you haven't pulled the trigger on buying anything yet. But you're just kind of comparison shopping. While the partners share that data back with facebook and then facebook can leverage that information and target specific ads to you based on what you've been doing off of facebook and other parts of the web..
"facebook" Discussed on Skullduggery
"On skulduggery Roger McNamee Venture Capitalist Rock, musician one of the original investors in facebook Roger Welcome back to skulduggery. It's a great pleasure to be here so so much to talk about. The has developed on the facebook front since you were last on last year and right now we have this extraordinary advertisers boycott of facebook over a lot of the material content that they are continuing to let on the platform that the critics say pushes misinformation and hate speech. What do you make of? Of this advertiser boycott so full disclosure Michael I am an advisor to both the CEOS of the Anti Defamation League HDL which is the leader of that campaign and common sense media, which is one of the other founders, and so I have been involved in it in a as an adviser from the beginning, and you'll recall when I came in your go. I was. Promoting my book docked, which essentially told the tale of my transformation from being thirty four year true believer in the power of Technology Hands People's lives to not just a skeptic, but an activist, trying to make people aware of threat, and what stop hate for profit is all about. Is engaging advertisers against what I believe has been the core problem from the beginning. which is that if you look at the design? Of the platforms that sell advertising sort timing here by Youtube facebook instagram twitter, there are others, but those are the four big ones, those platforms they need your attention in order to succeed, and because they're able to control the content for each individual person, because they have all this data about us and can find tune it. They have the ability to apply every lesson psychology that's ever been created, and they have the ability as a result to essentially manipulate our choices, and through that to manipulate our attention and our behavior. And that's a problem because if you think about a system where you're trying to get engagement, the best way to do that is to scare people to make them outrage and what does that? Hate speech, disinformation and conspiracy theories so turns out that those three kinds of content are not incidental to the BUSINESSMA. Those three kinds of content are actually the lubricant that makes them all work. There are relatively small percentage of everything that goes on there, but the significance that they have in terms of people being on there. What they care about is gigantic and the problem of debt, and the reason it stopped paid for property exists is because it gives small numbers of really extreme people. A disproportionate voice in our. So Roger let me. Let me ask you this actually before I. Do I guess I need to make a disclosure of our own. Which is Yahu News? which is part of Verizon media is owned by. Verizon and Verizon is participating in this boycott. It's it's temporarily paused. It's advertising you or I think I, really big companies. Join it. Thank you. All right bye-bye. I don't think either of us was decision maker in. The process. Are Above our pay grade and I think just to elaborate I think our CEO Hans. Vesper basically said that there was content that was appearing alongside our brands that was not up to our standards, and so they decided to pause advertising on the site, but I guess the point of the boycott is to try to finally change facebook's behavior and to change the kind of incentive structure that exists because what they've always done with. They've always talked about is A. A term that I hadn't heard until I came to work for a tech company content moderation, which is to say, we'll just keep the stuff off the site. We'll just whack a mole. Get it off the site, but you say that just doesn't work, and here's what the real issues, so you ask. What the goals campaigner in a perfect world we would succeed in persuading I facebook, and then youtube twitter instagram to change their business model so that hateful contact. Is Not amplified in a way. That harms people. The First Amendment is there to allow people to say things that are awful. That's not what we're talking about here. What we're talking about here is the fact that these guys take these voices, and then amplify the because that's good for their bottom line, and so what we want advertisers to to recognize that they are complicit. Their dollars support this and bet know if you will facebook has been on a sixteen year apology tour that I borrowed that from the Great North. Carolina scholars aimed to FECI who talks about you know things. Go wrong at facebook all the time and they always sit there i. they deny it than they deflect. It may tried to defuse it finally when they're forced to it policy. They promised to do better. Better and then they literally go right back to doing whatever it was there before and that his worked, and it's worked through the twenty sixteen presidential election it worth through the UK brexit election. It worked after genocide in Myanmar that the UN said was uniquely responsible for name on it worked through the Christ church terrorism, right? They've got away with everything by just apologizing, so can I just ask you Roger? You believe that this is just on Zuckerberg's part, a Feign, a cynical ploy, and that there is really no real principles at stake here for him. He always says that we're we don't. We don't feel we should be the arbiters of truth. You just don't buy that. No I think it's different than that. I think mark has a different value system than I have and what we're really talking about. Here is a debate between value systems in March value system, connecting everyone on one platform, and he has three billion people, so there are more people on facebook who are active users of it than our adherence to Christianity there are twice as many people active facebook is. There are people in China. Markets earned goes hey. Are you guys to tell me what to do. I have created this amazing things connected all these people and I. Do it my way, and you have no right to judge me or Chris and my response to that is you know I think we should have a debate about that and I may lose the debate. Let's face it I've been at it for four years. Haven't won a damn thing yet. Okay, but the debate gets more intense, and this is the first time that the people who dollars support the economic engine if I would argue that over sixteen years there's only been one crisis mark faced that threatened to spin out of control and that was Cambridge Analytica. An incredibly. They were able to put the genie back in the bottle on that. And there is a meeting going on today with the principles of the Stop, hate, for profit campaign with Mark Zuckerberg shells amber, Chris Cox who runs the product of facebook, and presumably a long string of Latin, necks and black people who are not actually executives facebook, but will be there to lend. Moral support. And that will be an important step in them with their damage. Control Right. They're going to try to somehow. Get everybody to leave that meeting saying we're making progress or facebook. Try Right so that they can go the advertiser saying there's nothing to worry about. You can go back to advertise and the issue here is. FACEBOOK has created what I think is legitimate the greatest advertising platform in the history of media. And so every advertiser would like to get back on their. They'd like to hate speech to go away, but they don't want. The other characteristics of facebook to go in the problem is I. Don't think he can.
"facebook" Discussed on Gadget Lab Podcast
"Hear that a lot from our colleagues at wired they remember like with great detail the last time they were on the show such as when Brian Barrett comes back on. He's like it's been seventeen months since I was on the show through. This is that we always want to have our colleagues on the show and we're so happy that you're here and when was the last time you are on the show by the way the late fifties were very very early to podcasting? We were doing podcasts. Back when some people weren't even listening to terrestrial Radio Okay Stephen. Let's get right to it. You were here because you wrote a book. It's called facebook the inside story. I have it right here in front of me folks. This is a tome. I don't know if you just heard that thud on the table. But this is like you could lift weights with this thing You spent years on this book. Stephen and you had a fair amount of access to people like Mark Zuckerberg and other executives like Sheryl Sandberg in the process. It's a fantastic book. What compelled you to start writing? This book did so. I can't even pinpoint the date. It was August twenty seventh two thousand fifteen when Mark Zuckerberg wrote on his feed. We put up story up saying a billion people had been on facebook the day before. And this wasn't how many people signed up for the services like a billion people in twenty four hours had been on facebook and I thought about that. Had that ever happened before like the World Cup gets a billion people but that's not an interactive network. Where someone could post something in theory you can get to everybody and old people's individual networks were intertwined there so I know that his ambitions were huge and facebook was doing very well but the reality of it made me think while this is something new how I tell the story. I've got to tell the story. This is my story and to tell who did it how they did it. And what it means and you had written a book about Google previously. Talk a little bit about that experience and how it compared to your writing of the facebook story. My previous book was called in the plex was about Google and the process was similar in that I went to them and said I want to write a book. give me access to your people. you don't get to say anything about the contents you'll see it when it's done and I thought it would be pretty much a similar process. I would write this. Try to put together a narrative of the the story of Google where people will be able to understand Google after they read the book and the story. You know almost like a novel would have a climaxing. We'd have tension and attention in this store or the Google story was it's experienced China where it went through this moral dilemma And I thought this'll be pulling similar and facebook. Maybe THEIR MORAL DILEMMA. Might be this Program they had Internet Dot Org. Were they spread around the world and did something was kind of unfair competitors where they would give away free data if you use facebook and if you were competing with facebook People would pay for your data so you facebook would basically get a head start all over the world as it turned out Internet dot org was the least of facebook. Doing the course of this book because It's actually a year from me to start researching after that post because I had to convince facebook to do it and get my affairs in order and The first thing I did was I went to Africa with Mark Zuckerberg to Nigeria He was treated like a hero. I later realized this was peak. Facebook things were going so great. Everyone love Mark Zuckerberg Though facebook how does issues was still pretty popular and then the election came in November. Two Thousand Sixteen and the BIT flips. Everything changed and for the next three years and to the current day but when I was doing the book Facebook was in hot water. Deservedly so so. The book really became an exercise in to saying. Here's what happened to facebook and I'm going back in the past that. Tell you how this happened. What went wrong and why it went wrong. down to pinpointing individual incidents where facebook went down the path perdition. Well you actually go all the way back in the book which I really appreciated because by getting into you know where facebook came from and how it was created in the environment in which has created gives us a lot of context about why the product was so important to people so illustrate pretty clearly in the book that the the idea of building a social network was not a new idea. There were things that came before Like six degrees and Runs through in my space and things that people were actually engaging in You know it was during the period when friend was moving from a noun to verb Right so all those other social networks fizzled. None of them took off. What was it in particular about facebook that allowed it to not only thrive but to completely dominate. I think that the roots of it really were facebook and I did not try to connect everyone in the world. It was a college network and it was something that Mark Zuckerberg in particular wanted to see happen. You know the most successful products are often things. The people build for themselves so he was a college student. He understood the way college students interact with each other and he was building project after project in his sophomore year. Not going to classes much and a lot of them had to do with providing utility for the college experience one of his earlier programs was something the web. When you looked at a class. You'll be able to see what friends of yours had signed up for the class so you could hang out with them. The class steeler notes other kinds of stuff and For the facebook which is what it was called when it was launched in February. Two Thousand Four. It was a way that people can learn more about each other and maybe find other people in their college community or they wanted to get to know better and find out what was up with them. So if your friend had a bunch of other friends that you wanted to get in touch with learn more about them you could use that because he was able to fix the dials and be really effective in building. This initial network. He had a head start. I believe in making a product that people would want to use when he extended it out to the world at large so I think the idea that it was constrained At first led to its success and being unconstrained and unleashed upon the world. Later on I have always argued that the like button is the most important instrument in facebook's journey. I'm glad you serve because I devoted quite a lot of space to the you really did So I WANNA talk about it a little bit but I i. I want you to tell the story of how it came to be because it didn't appear it sort of stumbled into existence right The like button started when A couple of Facebook's engineers wanted a more expressive way too quickly comment on a post Instead of saying Reading a whole comment you know you go in one little flick whether you approve of it or not and Facebook I didn't like this idea of Berg. Didn't like this idea because he felt that. If you had the ability to respond to something with one click. You wouldn't make a comment so various people have taken over the project and tried to push it I'd be different names at first. Then they finally settled on like and It wasn't until they were able to run an experiment. Prove that when you release the like button and you know they did it. In a couple of countries Comments would actually go up because it was a good signal. The Post should be circulated more gave it a higher ranking and people's newsfeed but I think the real significance came when they spread the like button out through pass facebook's boundaries onto the web they got millions and millions of people with websites and businesses to put the like button on their pages and that gave facebook. This data of WHO's doing what and you know On the web and basically facebook became throughout the world and that really was a signal to facebook that their business model eventually will be built around that data. So I really think that was the start of the big data cascade. That would come to signify what facebook was in a business sense and And also in a sense where they got into some trouble later on the interesting to think about algorithms now. The word algorithms become such a part of our vernacular to the point where people kind of hand wave at it or some people joke about not really knowing what it means. But it's this idea that all these data signals are creating these algorithms that inform the things that we see and experience on the Internet and this is really one of the earliest like most consumer-friendly versions of those signals just constantly telling facebook. Who what you're into and how. That's that's ultimately going to impact your experience on the web and is also going to tell a lot about yourself so I talk about. How a researcher not at facebook outside of facebook determined that With think fifteen likes if you see someone likes for fifteen likes. You'll know as much about him as you know someone you know casually and thirty like she'll know him as much as no one of your real friends With a hundred likes you'll know really as much as you know someone really well one hundred likes. You'll be parallel with that and with three hundred lakes. Facebook will know as much about you as you know your spouse. This is the personality test guys rates. Stillman Kaczynski Yeah exactly. You're up to it. Yeah so David. Still Stillman and Michael Kaczynski was the well you know. Oh yeah right still well. Well yes it's still And Michael Kaczynski were these researchers at Cambridge University which turns out to be a center for A lot of activity around this because They're colleague a guy named Alexander. Kogan was the person who got Cambridge Analytica involved in whole story And it was you know. He tried to bring in cousins Kaczynski and still well into his project and They didn't like it in part because came genetic wasn't GonNa pay them enough money and Kozinski later turned out. This hasn't been reported before To the person who dropped the dime on the whole project and I told The Guardian that this thing was going on while another massively important development and facebook's history was news feed in the book you talk about how one of your earliest meetings Suck Coburg. If not the first meeting you had with him he he was noodling. This this was like in the works but they did not mention it to you know now well. He hardly mentioned anything on first reading. I met him in two thousand six entrepreneur Ya. I thought I was reading a story about what was called Web. Two O at the time where user generated content was starting to appear on the web and heard about. This company was really successful in the college market The companies that we were focusing on in this Newsweek story. Where my space youtube and flicker But you know I thought it would be good to talk to him and get a couple of quotes From him and I arranged the meet him..

And its relationship with Publicans Democrats like to call the Republic Rats. Not just just Joshua folks But over the last few years Republicans have emerged somewhat surprisingly to be before closer allies to facebook than the Democrats have love I say surprising because there's a very strong bond historically between The Obama Administration and Democrats overall and facebook and and that has frayed significantly since trump has been elected. And now we're at a place where you're seeing Democratic presidential candidates speaking out openly against facebook talking about regulating it breaking it up all the sort and Republicans. They're a bit mixed but definitely are much more on the side of protecting facebook for interesting self interested interested reasons. Then I'm talking to Kevin McLaughlin about Ginny Rometty.

But I'm committed to doing this. Well, and to starting a new chapter for our products for more about what exactly will be changing Charlie Turner, spoke to our Facebook reporter, Jeff Horowitz from the conference in San Francisco now, Jeff in addition to the replacement or the disappearance of the blue icon what what are other changes that Facebook is making to the site. I hear some of them revolve around encouraging less public discourse. But more group conversations, I don't think it's going as far as encouraging less public discourse. But giving people an alternative to just sort of putting it all out there for the whole internet is definitely a priority for the company and something that Mark soccer Vic's been talking about for months, and it's very central to the redesign. So a big thing is groups and through what Mark Zuckerberg described as hundreds of small changes groups are going to be brought more central to the Facebook experience. I'm basically you're going to be encouraging people to take the conference. Stations and connections into smaller and moderated by administrators forums. And that's something that they believe is going to connect people for real and also perhaps might have some benefits in terms of the content on the site. What other changes is Facebook made don't some of them involve the video and photo feature stories. Yes, the stories has been a thing that that is going to be. I mean, it's been it's sort of featured prominently as kind of next Facebook's next big thing for advertising. General spin said it on the earnings calls for a while. And definitely there's no exception today. FA developer conference, that's a pretty central thing pitching. And so there's kind of a convergence of stories on kind of a lot of the platforms. It seems like that's part of what Mark Zuckerberg is has been saying he's interested in which is sort of converging. The products toward a similar set of features not stripping them entirely of their own identities. But it was making him. So they're interoperable and allow users to do many of the. Same things and a general question. Why are these changes happening? I mean is there some deeper reason for this? It's pretty easy to see the focus on groups is being part of response to some of the public criticism Facebook, Scott, and I sort of content on its site and to some degree. It's, you know, this is a philosophical ideological position taken by Mark Zuckerberg that he really does believe in the internet's ability to form communities and Facebook's role in that. But there are some invent advantages here they're going to be moderators. We're going to be a little more frontline in terms of regulating content, and that might take a bit of the of the burden off of sei's book. They're rolling out a whole bunch of new tools to let moderators see what problematic speech in behavior is occurring in their forums. And they're also saying that they're going to rate groups, according to their propensity to share misinformation or, you know, get into unpleasant behavior and. Also, the big question that, you know, the Wall Street Journal is invited readers to join the discussion here will it change the way people use Facebook..

"Quit facebook are happier more satisfied in their life but then they also find that that effect is very heavily concentrated among the heaviest facebook users right so suggests that like using facebook a little like is fine right it has utility and it doesn't have any damaging impact on your life but using it a lot can actually create real problems for you which again right if you describe a person who a couple times a year enjoys him sour patch kids like that's great right like they're tasty it's happy but if you're eating tons of sour patch kids all the time that's really bad but when you have industries that are built around profiting off addicts see this alcohol use eating gambling like it's really destructive because you can say like a million people visit a casino once in a while and they have fun they lose the money but like so what that's great but when you talk about the real profit centers like sad addicts pulling the lever it slot machines all the time like that's not so great but like that's that's facebook it's so it's kind of funny you bring up sour patch kids is our candy because those are like literally my favorite candy and the best delicious chocolate cats candy sour patch as relieving the podcasts or while best candy and so often for some reason like when i'm in airports i'm like you know what i'm gonna treat myself to some summer batch kids and i feel disgusting after eating them afterwards in a weird way like it's almost very similar to the variety of spending an hour on facebook where you feel like oh like what did i spend that time delayed due to flight delays i was recently in an airport for a long time eight a bunch of sour beds.

"Or first amendment issues no i don't think we are i think you know for this particular issue fortunately the federal trade commission actually got a consent decree against facebook in twenty eleven that specified certain things they were not supposed to do they were not supposed to make misrepresentations about privacy or security they were supposed to require obtain affirmative express consent from their users for a lot of data uses and i think that as we further investigate this we may see serious fines finally for a company that you i think has managed to avoid regulation in for far too long sell some of our listeners are reacting really struggling with what they should do and how a facebook affects their lives andy on twitter rights is it definitely feels inescapable of been wanting to quit for years because of how invasive it is but it's also become essential to stay connected with friends and family especially since moving halfway across the country mike wrote on our website facebook is not a part of the infrastructure you can exist on the internet without ever needing facebook frank what do you think what do you think people ought to do to be able to stay engage in used social media for the great tool that it is but also protect themselves well i think there are better and worse forms of social media so for example no i used to be on facebook a great deal of time i still am on it but say i've moved more to instagram you know or things like that it's like if you can maybe find forms of social media where maybe there is not so much of a threat potential i think we've seen a lot of the threats of facebook so being criticized throughout this hour but i think ultimately though this is a regulatory matter i've heard both emily and ben talk about the need for regulation i completely agree because the problem is that even if your facebook facebook maybe on you in the sense that they have shadow profiles so this is a bit like the equifax situation right nobody can choose not to be have a file with equifax so we have to regulate them and i think the same thing is going on here is on the line from providence rhode island.

"Third party applications to get this data from people's friends without their consent millions of people's information was harvested by third parties to which we do not know their names or how it's used so though though this isn't going on any more that in for information is out there and i would think would be safe to assume that people are using it in all sorts of ways that we don't understand so for those of us who are not tech savvy what should we be concerned about or what should we be doing now to protect ourselves ben well there are a number of things that one can do modifying the privacy settings on facebook but ultimately it's important to keep in mind that a company like facebook has every incentive to bury those settings to make them difficult to understand and it will never give you the option to opt out of its business model right it can only make tweaks around the edges so i think the most important thing that people who are concerned about this could do is to contact their representatives to actually build some political momentum around this issue because this ultimately needs to be a regulatory solution yeah and i just add you know the business model of facebook people have known that it was kind of gross in the way that it would target ads to you and we were grossed out by seeing micro targeted ads that new let's say that i have a son and that he is going to be three soon and we're gonna have a birthday party and all the ads are about that and people found that disquieting but i think what may impel people to actually contact the representatives now is realizing that the exact same mechanisms that allow people to serve us those ads are the mechanisms that allowed russian propagandists and companies like cambridge analytic to actually influence the democratic processes in nations and those are two very different the stakes are much higher in one of those scenarios but it's the exact same technology and the basis of which is facebook's.

"Um it in the newsfeed it made me think much more about the question of of happiness of satisfaction of mental health than it did about news about fake news about propaganda about hate speech i tend to think that facebook has the people at facebook have tended to ignore or downgrade the rather obvious influence that the medium has had on our public sphere you know they're they're they're not comfortable with the fact that human beings perform politics on facebook they would rather we did less of that they they're not comfortable with the fact that they don't seem to have an answer because the problem is no answer to promoting uh work from a set of responsible publications and downgrading work that comes from publications that you or i or people who you know read slate subscribe to sleep i guess would think of as response of right they they don't want to be in that editorial role it makes them feel really really uncomfortable really weird but they love the abstract they love talking about meaningful social interactions the problem is the word meaningful is meaningless so so just sent a threat to track a little bit i mean of course second order fair a democracy to properly function people have to have access said good information so that they can vote meaningfully as meaning that word is and you know that's why we have laws about media ownership in and you know dominance and things like that when it comes to how we get information and and facebook has largely evaded a lot of those regulations because they're not traditional right there is a social platform one thing that they came up for me though in what you're saying is that facebook i think it's really resident for me that the think of facebook as a place it doesn't want to encourage political communication because i look at how many activists that i've seen um you know particularly black lives matter activists that that have you know been kicked off facebook put in facebook jail for a short amount of time because they were talking about very difficult issues or they were making a post that address keno dear white people or something like that and and and so it's not just a matter of bought set or a matter of fake news and your feet.
