Twitter Is Adding New Filtering Tools in an Effort to Curb Abuse | #SocialMedia

Twitter Is Adding New Filtering Tools in an Effort to Curb Abuse | #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Twitter hopes to curb harassment once and for all by giving users the ability to filter keywords and hashtags...

 

OVER THE NEXT few days, Twitter will add new features intended to help curb abuse on the platform. Users will be able filter out certain keywords, phrases, user names, and hashtags in their mentions, Twitter says. You’ll also have the option to mute threads. The company is also revamping its abuse reporting system so that bystanders can report harassment and hate speech directly rather than leaving that option solely to the person on the receiving end.

And it’s about time.

Datenschützer: Whatsapp darf Daten nicht an Facebook übermitteln | #Datenschutz #Privacy #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Eine überraschende Verwaltungsanordnung des Hamburger Datenschutzbeauftragten Johannes Caspar bringt den Datenaustausch von Whatsapp zu Facebook zum Erliegen.

Damit hatte wohl niemand gerechnet – durch eine Verwaltungsanordnung hat der Hamburger Beauftragte für Datenschutz Johannes Caspar Facebook untersagt, Daten von deutschen Whatsapp-Nutzern zu ermitteln oder diese zu speichern. Diese Verwaltungsanordnung aus Hamburg gilt in Deutschland für Facebook deshalb, weil der Konzern seinen Firmensitz in der Hansestadt betreibt. Sie gilt ab sofort, Facebook muss sogar bereits übermittelte Daten löschen, wie Tagesschau.de berichtet.


Whatsapp, das von Facebook vor zwei Jahren für 20 Milliarden US-Dollar erworben worden war, hatte damals seinen Nutzern versprochen, seine Daten nicht mit Facebook auszutauschen. Nun aber erklärte Whatsapp, insbesondere Telefonnummern aus den Adressbüchern der Nutzer an Facebook weiterzugeben, damit das soziale Netzwerk besser Freunde vorschlagen und passendere Werbung anzeigen könne – Macwelt.de berichtete .

Twitter to Stop Counting Photos and Links in 140-Character Limit | #SocialMedia 

Twitter to Stop Counting Photos and Links in 140-Character Limit | #SocialMedia  | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Twitter Inc. is making a major shift in how it counts characters in Tweets, giving users more freedom to compose longer messages.


The social media company will soon stop counting photos and links as part of its 140-character limit for messages, according to a person familiar with the matter. The change could happen in the next two weeks, said the person who asked not to be named because the decision isn’t yet public. Links currently take up 23 characters, even after Twitter automatically shortens them. The company declined to comment.


It’s a step in a larger plan to give users more flexibility on the site. Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey said in January that the company was looking for new ways to display text on Twitter, and would experiment based on how people use the service. For example, some people tweet screenshots of longer text in articles, or send many tweets one after the other to tell a story.


Twitter’s 140-character limit was originally adopted because it was a way to send Tweets while fitting all the information within a mobile text message -- a common way for sending Tweets when the service debuted in 2006, before the proliferation of smartphones.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 20, 2016 7:38 AM
The company earlier this year considered raising the limit to as many as 10,000 characters. But the quick, concise nature of Tweets has helped set the site apart from the competition. Executives have spent the last few months emphasizing how Twitter is a destination for live events and discussion. Removing the character requirement for links and photos may encourage users to add more media to their posts.

Facebook Tests Emoji Reactions to Fix Its ‘Dislike’ Problem | Empathy

Facebook Tests Emoji Reactions to Fix Its ‘Dislike’ Problem | Empathy | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Say it with a smiley.

Adam Mosseri, Facebook’s director of product, tells TechCrunch that Reactions will be tested in only two markets for now, Spain and Ireland, countries whose friend networks tend not to extend beyond national borders, making them ideal “closed test groups.” The biggest caveat: Facebook says it still needs to figure out whether it wants to tweak these empathetic emoji. “We’ll use the feedback from this to improve the feature and hope to roll it out to everyone soon,” Cox continued.

The other consideration, of course, is that a strict “dislike” button would be a bad thing for brands, a camp Facebook would rather not expose to hostilities. In fact, the new range of emotions could offer more than just defensive benefits. They let Facebook quantify your feelings with even more granularity, which could in turn help Facebook serve up ads that are even more well-suited to you. In the end, it’s all just data.

Digital Communication Students's curator insight, November 2, 2015 6:05 PM

Los usuarios ya llevan muchos años pidiendo una opción de "no me gusta" al lado del famoso "me gusta" en Facebook. La razón de esta demanda no es para informar negativamente de que un contenido o foto no es del agrado del usuario, sino para mostrar cierta empatía a la hora de leer una información devastadora. 

Aun con todo, no se ha conseguido una opción de "dislike"o "no me gusta" tal cual. Los profesionales de Facebook han decidido incorporar 7 emociones diferentes en las que el usuario puede decidir la más acertada según su estado de ánimo en el momento de visualizar la foto o leer la información. El motivo por el cual no se ha añadido una simple opción de "dislike" es puramente empresarial. Se ha estudiado que un botón de "no me gusta" afectaría a las ventas de productos publicitados en esta red social.
