Twitter schafft ersten Gewinn der Firmengeschichte
Zwölf Jahre hat es gedauert, nun kann Twitter feiern: Das Unternehmen kann erstmals überhaupt einen Gewinn verbuchen. Die Anzahl der Nutzer ist in den vergangenen zwölf Monaten um 11 Millionen gestiegen - eigentlich nicht viel für eine Firma, die täglich weltweit in den Nachrichten vorkommt.

Das im März 2006 gegründete Unternehmen Twitter hat im vergangenen Geschäftsquartal erstmals einen Nettogewinn ausgewiesen. 91 Millionen US-Dollar waren es in den Monaten Oktober bis Dezember 2017. Im gleichen Vorjahreszeitraum war noch ein Verlust von 167 Millionen US-Dollar angefallen. Der Quartalsumsatz ist um 2 Prozent auf 732 Millionen US-Dollar gestiegen. Im gesamten Geschäftsjahr hat Twitter einen Umsatz von 2,4 Milliarden US-Dollar generiert und dabei Verluste in Höhe von 108 Millionen US-Dollar verbucht.

Facebook acquires ID verification startup Confirm.io | #Acquisitions #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
(Reuters) — Facebook Inc is buying a software firm that specializes in authenticating government-issued identification cards, the two companies said on Tuesday, a step that may help the social media company learn more about the people who buy ads on its network.

U.S. lawmakers have expressed alarm at Facebook’s limited ability to know who is buying advertisements, including election-related ads, on the world’s largest social network.

Boston-based Confirm Inc, which is privately held, said on its website that the acquisition was the culmination of three years of work to build technology to keep people safe online.

Facebook said in a statement Confirm’s “technology and expertise will support our ongoing efforts to keep our community safe.”

Terms of the deal and how Facebook would apply Confirm’s software were not revealed.

We’ve made it easy to create a thread by adding a plus button in the composer, so you can connect your thoughts and publish your threaded Tweets all at the same time. You can continue adding more Tweets to your published thread at any time with the new “Add another Tweet” button. Additionally, it’s now simpler to spot a thread – we’ve added an obvious “Show this thread” label.

 

A few weeks ago, we expanded our character count to make it easier for people to fit what they’re thinking into a Tweet. But we know people also may want to serialize a longer storyor thought, or provide ongoing commentary on an event or topic. That’s where this update to threads comes in!

 

You’ve been using threads in creative ways like these for years – the ways and reasons to thread your Tweets are limited only by your imagination.

Twitter gives neo-Nazis, racists Dec. 18 deadline—and could then kick them out entirely | #SocialMedia #NOHateSpeech  | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Twitter is cracking down on hate speech and not just by looking at its own site. 

In what amounts to a major shift in Twitter policy, the company announced on Friday that it will be monitoring user's behavior "on and off the platform" and will suspend a user's account if they affiliate with violent organizations, according to an update to Twitter's Help Center on Friday. 

"You also may not affiliate with organizations that — whether by their own statements or activity both on and off the platform — use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes," the update reads.

Twitter isn't taking action immediately. Rather, it's given users until December 18, 2017 when it will then begin enforcing the rule. The month-long wait is due to regulations in the European Union that require companies to inform users of a new policy change 30 days prior to enforcement.

The Dec. 18 deadline also applies to using "hateful images or symbols" in profile images or profile headers. Twitter will also monitor for hate speech in usernames, display names, and profile bios.

Facebook: Vorsicht vor Fake-Profilen


Mimikama, ein privater Verein zur Aufklärung über Internetmissbrauch, hat einen Facebook-Betrug aufgedeckt, der sich speziell an Männer richtet. Wie die Masche funktioniert, ist schnell erklärt: Männliche Facebook-User erhalten Anfragen von weiblichen Nutzerinnen. Es sind dabei nicht irgendwelche Frauen, sondern immer höchst attraktive, leicht bekleidete Damen, die laut Profil zufällig auch noch ganz in der Nähe wohnen.


Auf ihren Profilseiten bieten die Frauen in Posts Live-Shows und kostenlose Chats mit "Webcamgirls" an. Dafür muss man nur auf einen Link klicken, der in den Posts zu finden ist - was Sie keinesfalls tun sollten!

Entwickler mit unlauteren Absichten haben im Play Store eine WhatsApp-Version veröffentlicht, die den Namen "Whatsapp Business" trägt. Dabei handelt es sich aber mitnichten um die angekündigte Unternehmens-Version von WhatsApp, sondern schlicht im eine Fälschung, die gutgläubige Nutzer zur Installation verleiten soll.

Still und leise hat Facebook den "Explore Feed" eingeführt, der Nutzer zu Content außerhalb ihres Freundeskreises führen soll. In einigen Regionen testet der Konzern aber andere Optionen, die dieser Feed ermöglichen kann.

Allzu viele Facebook-Nutzer dürften es noch nicht mitbekommen haben: In den vergangenen Tagen hat Facebook nach mehreren Tests einen zweiten Newsfeed in die Apps und die Web-Version integriert. Der "Explore Feed" lässt sich in der deutschsprachigen Variante recht versteckt über "Entdecker-Feed" links in der "Entdecken"-Sidebar aufrufen.

Im Explore Feed zeigt Facebook Inhalte, die nicht von Freunden oder abonnierten Seiten stammen. Algorithmen sorgen dafür, dass Nutzer hier präsentiert bekommen, was sie anhand ihrer analysierten Gewohnheiten interessieren könnte. Die Absicht ist klar: Mitglieder sollen noch länger als bislang im sozialen Netz verweilen.

Instagram launches IGTV, a new long-from video platform, hits 1 billion users | #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Instagram on Wednesday launched IGTV, a new long-from video platform that gives marketers another way to reach its vast audience -- which now stands at 1 billion users.

The new platform for content creators, which will be available as a standalone app and within Instagram, makes Instagram a more direct competitor with other digital media giants like YouTube as well as traditional media. It also gives Facebook, Instagram's parent company, a fresh channel for advertisers -- Instagram already accounts for a growing portion of Facebook's mobile ad revenue.

Calling IGTV its "most exciting feature to date," Instagram explained that videos on the app are fullscreen and vertical, optimized for watching on a smartphone. Each video can be up to an hour long. Anyone can post their own videos to IGTV via the app or the web and create their own "channel.

All the Changes Coming to Your Instagram | #SocialMedia | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

At Facebook’s F8 conference on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg discussed how Instagram will be changing in the coming weeks. The upgrades include video chat, an Explore redesign, AR camera effects, and a bullying filter.


The new video chat feature will allow users to talk with one or more people. “You’re going to be able to just tap on a new camera icon in the top of any direct thread that you have and you’re going to be able to video chat one-on-one or with groups,” Zuckerberg explained. The chat screen can be minimized so users can use the feature while also scrolling through Instagram.

Instagram is also rolling out a new Explore design that features categories so users can choose different topic channels—like “animals,” “nail art,” and “slime”—rather than just seeing content that Instagram thinks you’ll like.

Zuckerberg’s response to Cambridge scandal omits why it delayed investigating | #SocialMedia #Naivety #NobodyIsPerfect #ProactiveTHINKing  | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

I started Facebook, and at the end of the day I’m responsible for what happens on our platform” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted after days of the public and government officials waiting for him to speak up about the Cambridge Analytica scandal since it broke Friday. “We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you.”

Zuckerberg laid out a slate of changes Facebook will make to prevent past and future abuses of user data by app developers. Those include:

Blocking data access of apps you haven’t used for three months or more


Auditing old apps that collected a lot of personal data
Reducing the amount of data apps can pull using Facebook Login without an additional permissions screen to just your name, profile photo, and email address


Requiring a signed contract from developers that want to pull your posts or private information


Surfacing Facebook’s privacy third-party app privacy settings tool atop the News Feed to help people repeal access to apps


Telling people if their data was misued by the app associated with Cambridge Analytica, or apps Facebook bans for misue in the future.


What’s missing from this response is any indication why Facebook didn’t do more to enforce its policy prohibiting apps from sharing user data, or why it took Cambridge Analytica at their word when they said they deleted the data without proper investigation.
