Social Media and the Hong Kong Protests - The New Yorker

Social Media and the Hong Kong Protests - The New Yorker | Social Media, Social Might | Scoop.it
The pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong enjoys a global network of online support. In the social-media age, protests are no longer “local.”
JoseAlvarezCornett's insight:

"On July 1, 2003, some half a million Hong Kong people took to the streets to protest a national-security bill, proposed by Hong Kong’s government and backed by Beijing, that was widely believed to restrict freedom of speech. I had just moved to Hong Kong, where I worked as a journalist for three years. The day of the protests was hot. People were carrying umbrellas for the sun, not for tear gas. Some wore black to mourn their freedoms. The protesters were orderly and good-natured, but that shouldn’t be confused for complacency—the people I saw in Hong Kong were passionate about defending the “one country, two systems” that is supposed to protect them from Chinese interference.  In 2003, the people won, and the controversial bill was shelved."

You Are What You Tweet - The New Yorker

You Are What You Tweet - The New Yorker | Social Media, Social Might | Scoop.it
When Mark Zuckerberg, the C.E.O. of Facebook, started appearing at local haunts in San Francisco’s Mission District last year, one blog speculated that he was attempting to “rebrand himself as a Mission hipster.” It’s an apt turn of phrase, one that conveys the casual predominance of “personal branding,” the practice that Zuckerberg’s company has popularized: managing your presentation—your behavior, appearance, reputation, online persona—to stand out in your professional and personal lives. The Oxford Dictionaries Online last week added the term “selfie”—the self-portrait taken in solitude and submitted to the gaze of millions, turning each of us into his own paparazzo. Although image maintenance is nothing new, the images we’re presenting are now available online, all the time, and are presumed to meaningfully represent us. Personal branding is the subtext of all social networking: when we post vacation photos, we attest to our ability to take luxurious vacations; when we post pictures of our babies, we present ourselves as proud and caring parents; when we crack wise about current events, we demonstrate our wit, relevance, and political leanings.

What Twitter Changes Might Mean for Academics – ProfHacker

What Twitter Changes Might Mean for Academics – ProfHacker | Social Media, Social Might | Scoop.it

“ Twitter’s earnings last quarter, after all, were an improvement on the period before, and it added 14 million new users for a total of 255 million. The thing is: Its users are less active than they once were. Twitter says these changes reflect a more streamlined experience, but we have a different theory: Twitter is entering its twilight.” 

 

"In light of these predictions, it’s not surprising that Twitter is contemplating some big changes to how it handles content and discourse. Twitter has always been notable for avoiding the algorithmic approach favored by Facebook and other social media. The hierarchy of information on Twitter is clear: the most recent tweets are always at the top, and when you log in to your timeline, the majority of your attention is focused on a constantly refreshing portrait of the moment. Content that is regularly retweeted by people you follow is more likely to appear in any time snapshot you view, and thus retweets are a way of maintaining visibility even as the hierarchy stays time-based."

Why Google+ hasn’t taken off?

Why Google+ hasn’t taken off? | Social Media, Social Might | Scoop.it

"Then it came Google+, trying to do everything Facebook did, but with less time to do it, albeit with far more resources Facebook had. Here comes the irony, Web apps for an specific platform is not something that Facebook pioneered. Google was one of the companies that embraced this feature in many of their platforms, like Google Docs for example. But for some reason, Google closed the possibilities of giving this same functionality to Google+, as a matter of fact they clearly stated that they were not going to allow games on it. Hence, no time waster feature on Google+?"

What’s a Facebook shadow profile, and why should you care?

What’s a Facebook shadow profile, and why should you care? | Social Media, Social Might | Scoop.it
If you're wondering if you have a Facebook shadow profile, you do.
JoseAlvarezCornett's insight:

We need to be aware a beware of what digital corporations are doing with our data.

 

"A Facebook shadow profile is a file that Facebook keeps on you containing data it pulls up from looking at the information that a user’s friends voluntarily provide. You’re not supposed to see it, or even know it exists. This collection of information can include phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and other pertinent data about a user that they don’t necessarily put on their public profile. Even if you never gave Facebook your second email address or your home phone number, they may still have it on file, since anyone who uses the “Find My Friends” feature allows Facebook to scan their contacts. So if your friend has your contact info on her phone and uses that feature, Facebook can match your name to that information and add it to your file.

Finally! Google begins to think big (big history, that is)

Finally! Google begins to think big (big history, that is) | Social Media, Social Might | Scoop.it

In a keynote address delivered to the Berlin Open Knowledge Festival earlier this year, Googler Eric Hysen set up some big stakes for Google's future: Google, he said, has not yet begun to think big.  To really think big, Google would need to start thinking about history, and to think about infrastructure in particular. 

JoseAlvarezCornett's insight:

"How is it that enormous shifts in economics and politics have been executed in our historical experience?  The industrial revolution and the creation of the modern nation-state both rest upon the building of physical infrastructure, and in particular, upon the building of roads.  If Google wants to really change our reality -- to stand up to promises that the internet can bring transparency to government, that it transform public policy and public health, or that it can actualize democracy through access to information -- then Google would do well to think about how material infrastructure creates revolutions in information, and how the information revolution of our own time is also an infrastructure revolution.  All of these points are picked up by Hysen's keynote.  He gets it: this is not the first time the world has been transformed by laying pipe and getting people together, and we can learn from the past how to do it better and aim for bigger successes than before.

What I hear in Hysen's speech is an important trend in the way certain individuals have begun to understand our world anew, a return to long-term thinking.  That means using history to map out where we are in the present, and to foreground how we might engage vast processes and macroscopic patterns (for instance, actualizing democracy, as Hysen urges Google to do). "

How Social Media Silences Debate

How Social Media Silences Debate | Social Media, Social Might | Scoop.it
People have always tended to surround themselves with like-minded people, but the Internet makes doing so easier than ever before, a study finds.
JoseAlvarezCornett's insight:

"Social media, like Twitter and Facebook, has the effect of tamping down diversity of opinion and stifling debate about public affairs. It makes people less likely to voice opinions, particularly when they think their views differ from those of their friends, according to a report published Tuesday by researchers at Pew Research Center and Rutgers University.

The researchers also found that those who use social media regularly are more reluctant to express dissenting views in the offline world."

Science has shown that humans are not selfish by nature. How do we transform this trend into cooperation within the company? Yochai Benkler explains the process.
JoseAlvarezCornett's insight:

"Science has proven that human beings are not selfish by nature. Recent research in a range of scientific disciplines, such as evolutionary biology, psychology, sociology and experimental economics, have all demonstrated that human beings are not as selfish as we thought. According to the research just 30% of all humans act selfishly by nature, while 20% are unpredictable and the remaining 50% tend to prefer cooperation, although not unconditionally."

 

How can companies and citizens capitalize on this a propensity for cooperation?

This is good that they are helping

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, September 25, 2013 10:33 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

 

Perma.cc is an upcoming web service that aims to help authors and journals create permanent archival copies of their online published content.

 

Way too often in fact, due to a multitude of reasons, not only content gets moved and relocated to new sites, becoming more difficult to find but in many others it is permanently deleted or lost.

 

To comfort your doubts that this is a true and tangible issue, you should check the work being carried out by Kendra Albert, Larry Lessig and Jonathan Zittrain, who are completing a study of link rot, available at http://papers.ssrn.com/abstract=2329161. ;

 

Link rot is the phenomenon by which material we link to on the distributed Web vanishes or changes beyond recognition over time.

 

Believe it or not half of the links in all of the Supreme Court opinions, don't work anymore.

 

In this context "the Harvard Library Innovation Lab has pioneered a project to unite libraries so that link rot can be mitigated.  We are joined by about thirty law libraries around the world to start Perma.cc, which will allow those libraries on direction of authors and journal editors to store permanent caches of otherwise ephemeral links."

 

The Internet Archive has provided its powerful archiving engine to support this effort and Cloudfare its distributed CDN.

 

The official tagline of the upcoming site reads: "perma.cc helps authors and journals create permanent archived citations in their published work"

 

Here is essence what you should expect from it: "Perma.cc allows users to create citation links that will never break.


When a user creates a Perma.cc link, Perma.cc archives a copy of the referenced content, and generates a link to an unalterable hosted instance of the site.


Regardless of what may happen to the original source, if the link is later published by a journal using the Perma.cc service, the archived version will always be available through the Perma.cc link."

 

N.B.: While anyone will be able to go to Perma.cc and archive any web page this resource is designed for researchers, authors and journals. In this light Perma.cc downloads the material at the designated URL and provides a new URL (a “Perma.cc link”) that can then be inserted in a paper. 


After the paper has been submitted to a journal, the journal staff checks that the provided Perma.cc link actually represents the cited material. If it does, the staff “vests” the link and it is forever preserved. Links that are not “vested” will be preserved for two years, at which point the author will have the option to renew the link for another two years.

 

 

My comment: Can't wait to test it. We need these type of archival tools like oxygen. It's not only important that we organize and curate what is important from the web, but it is essential that we also take care in preserving it for the longest possible time.

 

 

 

Free and open to all (soon).
