People got mad :( it was considered porn Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg apologized to Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg (the photo was posted on a Facebook page in Norway) for deleting the photo. Facebook reinstated the photo after the editor of a Norwegian website accused Mark Zuckerberg of “abusing your power” Twitter Microblogging (a new concept) Launched March 21, 2006 by Jack Dorsey (Roughly) 320+ million active monthly users Average time users spend on Twitter per month, just under 3 hours China has most users 35.5 million There are 20 million fake Twitter users Most followed celebrity: Katy Perry 89.5 million followers Louis C.K. Hates Twitter From the fusion.net articles: “over the past 24 hours, Leslie Jones has been inundated with racist, hateful vitriol on Twitter. Jones is the brilliant, radiant costar of the new alllady reboot of Ghostbusters. The trolling on Twitter appears to have been sparked by a review of the film published on Monday by Breitbart At one point, Yiannopoulos even began tweeting out obviously fake tweets masquerading as tweets from Jones herself. Mika Lecture 2 Day 2 #ACTIVISM “Hashtag activism,” a term around the turn of Occupy Wall Street, is just the lastest iteration of a longstanding debate between people who think “awareness” is its own kind of protest...and people who, for various reasons, do not. In a 2014 article for the Huffington Post, Sabrina KhanIbarra argues for the importance of #activism and a social media: 1. With social media, you can send more messages to more people, more quickly. 2. Social media has the potential to bring to people fair and balanced news coverage with little or no bias of mainstream corporate media or propaganda, thereby becoming the de facto news. By organizing, creating and supporting hashtag campaigns, people from all over the world can get involved in important conversation. Social media is a more accessible way of activism for those who cannot leave the home Social media equals power, as demonstrated by certain countries banning or controlling access. An engaged and interactive audience for live TV shows. Are There Any Drawbacks? Yes, the sharing of photos and links without verification of information. Trolls who undermine posts and derail important discussions. Trolls are able to follow trends and hashtag and deter followers from productive conversations. Some trolls even resort to bullying those with opposing ideas. The ability to buy tweets and even tweeps (people to tweet on your behalf). And, perhaps one of the biggest criticisms of hashtag conversations are that they are short lived and issues easily forgotten. Hashtag activism must be paired with realworld action to be meaningful Regulation and Intellectual Property Regulatory attempts Communications Decency Act, 1996 Attempt to restrict pornographic Internet content Struck down by U.S. Supreme Court US Gov't cannot control Internet content Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Protection of intellectual property Passed by Congress in 1998 Illegal to share copyrighted material on the Internet Net Neutrality The concept of net neutrality holds that companies providing Internet service should Mika Lecture 2 Day 2 treat all sources of data equally Threats to Net Neutrality Some large Internet and telecommunication companies want to create a twotiered Internet with a fast lane and a slow lane. Mobile phone carries like Verizon and AT&T could charge content companies a toll for faster access to customers or block certain services from reaching customers In April, 2014: FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler proposed a “commercially reasonable” standard for network management. That standard could allow ISPs to charge companies for preferential treatment, such as charging webbased companies like Netflix or Amazon to reach consumers at faster speeds. This kind of “pay to play” model would inhibit competition. No Blocking No Throttling Broadband providers may not slow down the delivery of lawful Internet traffic, based on the content, applications or services that are delivered. No Paid Prioritization Broadband providers can't favor some traffic on their network over other traffic. This rule means no “fast lane” Is The Web Dead? Over the past few years, one of the most important shifts in the digital worls has been the more from the wideopen Web to semiclosed platforms that use It's the world that consumers are increasingly choosing, not because they're rejecting the idea of the Web but because these dedicated platforms often just work better or fit better into their lives (the screen comes to them, hey have to go o the screen) The fact that it's easier for companies to make more money on these platforms only cements the trend.
