I'd love to have you do one of these Q and A's. He said, could be a video We put out in the harbor different thing we distribute separately. But I think it could be effective as well. Talking about authority of information from reliable sources, was anybody you know, from the Trump administration that had alternate views to Dr Fauci. Given an opportunity by Zuckerberg to I just I'm just asking a question. Again, in case you're under the mistaken miss belief here. That Chuck Todd is interested in hearing both sides are getting to the facts he's interested in protecting Protecting like a praetorian guard. Dr. Anthony Fauci is reputation because, Fauci said, a lot of things that did damage to Donald Trump. That's his only purpose. We have the email right here. And the interesting about this.

"My big question about the death of third party. Cookies is what was wrong with third party cookies. What was wrong with the ad tracking and attribution and data collection on somebody else's sites. Why was there a need for the regulation and the departure from this tracking technology in the first place. I think the decision to remove the focus is doing by the biggest tech place. It's basically epo facebook Essence google because adults are the companies have the highest amount of i by data which would meant to say this gives them a very strong competitive edge against all the other companies clues to strive on.

G7 Nations Strike Deal to Tax Big Companies and Squeeze Havens

"Of the G seven rich gang of countries coming together for what they call a landmark deal to try to end offshore tax havens. Basically the idea being that Companies. Large companies such as Amazon, Facebook, and so on, should pay more in the countries where they do business, so they can't just say that, actually, even though they might sell in your country, they belong somewhere else because they happen to have set up shop, little brass plate in an off shore tax haven. Is it actually going to work or not? It's Going to be a subject, which has been kind of going to be argued over the claims of the rich countries. Alex Cobham is chief executive of the Tax Justice Network. He knows this stuff in depth Tax Justice Network is an advocacy group. Campaigns for tax avoidance. Can you first, just just describing a sort of a capsule form? How this plan is going to work? I'm trying to explain it in the introduction, but you're the expert making companies pay more in the countries where they do business. Is that gonna work? Yes And no. So there's two. There's two pieces here. One is the bit. That's that's kind of had more profile, I think, which is taking a small bit of the profit of more or less the 100 of the very biggest and most profitable multinationals. And saying, Okay, A bit of that above the 10% profit margins are above a very high margin is going to be taxed in the place where you make your sales regardless of whether you managed to get your profit somewhere else, But that's going to bring in the TV thinks between five and $12 billion a year of additional revenue. So it's not nothing, but it's not really very much. The other part is actually a big deal. And this is a global minimum tax rate. That's the idea that all of the biggest multinationals, perhaps eight, or 10,000, Will have to pay in every country at least 15%, and that's potentially dramatic that could bring in between about 275 and $460 billion in additional revenues each

Creating Sustainable Practices for Marathons and Road Races

"Back to that flight. That you're taking for your race. Here's a little context. The average american is responsible through their household activities and consumption for about fifteen metric tons for thirty three kilograms of carbon emissions annually. Globally that number drops by two-thirds to just about ten thousand kilograms on average per year per person. So that gives you a sense of how our lifestyles here. In the developed west correlate to the amount of environmental harm that we 'cause compared to most other people in the world so one long-haul round trip flight say los angeles new york or new york. London causes about two thousand kilograms per person per flight. And that single week or we can. Trip is now responsible for about six percent of your total years worth of climate impact if you're tracking with the average if you take four flights on average per year now that's about twenty five percent of your entire footprint with just that active flying in it's about eighty percent of the total years worth of impact if you're tracking with the global per capita average so flying is a privilege and it's a luxury and just because we love it and because it's come quite commonplace Doesn't make it any less. So and driving to events is quite a bit less carbon intensive than flying so then it would start to depend on how far you go and how often you go in your car So what can be done races. Are they're precious motivation. And they are incomparable experiences. We want races and we're not willing to give them up nor should we at the council for responsible sport. We are strongly. Advocating to event organizers for the normalization of a point of registration carbon offset option. So that's where we're saying. Runner should be given the choice to opt in to pay a few dollars into a fund that will be used to invest in a project that captures stores or reduces climate changing emissions elsewhere. So for concerned individual. The hard truth is that it does mean becoming more and more choosy and considerate. About how often do you utilize air travel and offsetting emissions when you do so the takeaway is email or post on your race. Facebook page asking not if but when the carbon offset option will be incorporated into the registration process. I happen to know that the trail renting community is getting on top of this and there's actually movement to have trail running be climate positive sports so carbon-neutral within the decade.

Why pick this drag challenger for project. The week it was posted on the talking mo- parts facebook page on wednesday june second at three o'clock and there is a big mistake in the ad which we will discuss after here is the ad nineteen seventy dodge challenger race car twenty thousand dollars. Joseph used cars vintage pro stock. Hardy roller chassis. Steele roof and quarters would make a good twenty eight and a half tire class car or bracket or whatever you wanna race twenty thousand or best offer title status is missing okay folks so if you saw the car or looking at it right now listening to this. You'd see that the car is a nineteen seventy-one assuming that the grill retail i panel have never been changed and the ad lists it as a seventy that's annoying to me ad also states. The title is missing which also annoys me. But it's understandable considering the car's been out of commission likely since the seventies the fender tag is long gone unless these guys have it and they will include it with the sale but look the cars and old drag car and if it were to see the track again it would definitely need some upgrading and updating. But that's not exactly how i roll. I'd love to be able to drive this car on the road into shows and cruises so that's the direction i would take it. I would actually leave it. The nostalgic look. But i would obviously get it safe and able to be street driven. The exterior of this car needs to be preserved. Exactly how it is with. Its wild custom paint job in giant period. Correct looking offset hood scoop. It's really hard for me to explain how this car looked. So you really have to go to the talking about parts. facebook page. Go back to wednesday.

NYT Reporter Said Americans Acted Like ‘Selfish Pigs’ During COVID, Unlike Chinese

"A new york times writer called Americans selfish pigs. In comparison to average chinese citizens speaking of china of who behaved heroically amid the pandemic this a former veteran writer for the new york times. Not and this was in an email to anthony fauci in february twenty twenty as the coronavirus pandemic was just beginning to become An international news stories so By the way this is he was fired from the times but he worked for the paper for more than four decades. He wrote to anthony. Fauci and sad Let's see i was just watching the hhs briefing online and thinking about an article. I read this morning. And bruce aylward description of what he saw in china and a lot of videos. I've watched on the south china morning post website they're doing great coverage he puts in parentheses And then he says you know to china. They behaved incredibly heroically in the face of the virus. Twenty-five thousand doctors nurses went into wuhan to help knowing they might die and by the way meanwhile in america people tend to act like selfish pigs interested only in saving themselves. How can i afford a mask. Where's my vaccine this morning. I read an appalling article from alabama and He says this behavior is unacceptable from From americans it's interesting. I don't think it matters much. And i know we only have a couple of minutes left. I don't think it matters much from this. Nypd for you know. it's like okay. He wrote for the new york times now he doesn't anymore. But i do think it is indicative of this greater push that we have seen during the pandemic that i think will linger on which is to call americans who want to prolong their freedom. Who wants to make sure that they don't see their freedoms go away to call them selfish and they want to condition you to think that oh well just engaging in your own personal freedoms that you have.

Well what if. I told you that you could get thousand plans for the low low price of only sixty seven dollars while there's this guy. His name is ted. Woody mcgrath. Now you know. He's legit because after all his nickname is woody. So he's obviously a woodworker. Because every woodworker i know is nicknamed woody right any. He spent decades compiling woodworking plans that he is offering to sell for the low low price of only sixty seven dollars. Now consider the most plan self around five ten bucks each on the internet. How could you possibly go wrong. How indeed. you've no doubt seen the ads on facebook or other websites than i am. Of course talking about ted's woodworking. And like i said to have access to such a vast array of plans for under a hundred bucks seems like the best deal ever. Steve ramsey of woodworking for mere mortals posted several videos about this offer back in two thousand twelve. Other woodworkers woodworking sites and forums and youtube channels have reviewed and researched and warned against ted's woodworking. But it has never gone away and it seems to be flooding.

"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..

"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.

"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.

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.

So we could bring clean energy from one end to the country to the other Republican lawmakers who control the Senate are unlikely to support a two trillion dollar infrastructure Bill. They've warned that a major new federal infrastructure program would increase the federal deficit. Now, our main story this morning. Facebook's new redesign Mark Zuckerberg introduced the changes at the first day of the company's annual developer conference f eight though the most obvious change for many of us would be the removal of the blue bar. That's been a top Facebook site since it was launched. There are a whole host of other changes being introduced Mr. Zuckerberg was clear about the reason for the changes privacy. No, look, I get that a lot of people aren't sure that we're serious about this. I know that we don't exactly have the strongest reputation on privacy right now to put it lightly. 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.

"G and i know you also help others run successful groups with your done for you content and training so we knew you're going to be a perfect person to us to talk about this and um i posted a my facebook group to feed a kind of gauge and see what questions people have serena covers some of that today were kinda we've in some of the questions that um my facebook members were asking too so but first let's take a step back because i don't think everyone knows what the difference is between a facebook page and a facebook group so how do you like to explain the difference okay so and this is kind of evolved as as time has gone by and facebook page is obviously when you run a business you wanna have a facebook page at represent your brand what i've noticed especially over the last couple of years and if you look at facebook stats a conversation engagement tends to be at really a minimal level on your fan page maya purpose for running my fan page i definitely have brand awareness i definitely post on a regular basis but i don't use it to create conversations i really use that suggests cheap uh you know keep current and make sure that if people are checking my page are gonna see that i am active in obviously runs facebook ads from your fan page um so that's really the main purpose i don't really leverage it that much other than to run facebook ads from because it's simply not an effective place for me to send my time so i actually have my assistant is posting in there we know we do we run through it approved pose sauna like a chunk we do a time walkaway chunk the plo's center will scheduled amount but it's not a main part of my strategy honestly on some people do very well with era fan pages but as small business owners as entrepreneurs we don't have a lotta time and so for me it's definitely not been the most effective plays distended groups however on the other hand had been massive for me and i see it changing people's businesses because back.
