Crimes like this are hideous and we do not allow that kind of content on Facebook.
What's even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw this and they didn't pick up the phone and dial 911. That's just not right.
We have now got the reply from Facebook and we are now analysing it.
But she was mean and I didn't shear her at all.
We look for alumni that are giving back to the world, who are making the world better.
I think there's something about 4-H and the different programs they do and the responsibilities they give to younger people that kind of force them to gain confidence at a really young age. Being on a television show and being on a set and understanding how to be a leader in any kind of environment is really useful and I learned that through 4-H. Only time will tell. I have a feeling I'll be playing a sheepshearer pretty soon.
I posted it on Facebook, there was like 10,000 views in a couple hours, and my friends said you have to post this so more people can see it, because this is obviously having a major impact.
We very much want to be part of that second budget, the latter which is measured by physical action.
If you're a small business, Instagram is a place where people are seeking passion. Eighty percent of people on Instagram follow a business.
It's a very simple idea. If the driver of increasing political polarization is social media and filter bubbles and all that, then the trend should be especially pronounced for younger people. Instead, polarization has gone up more for groups that don't go online. Previously, the boundaries of the parties did not line up perfectly with ideologies. You had these conservative Democrats in the South, for instance, and you had moderate Republicans elsewhere.
No matter what you were, there were people in the other party who looked like you and had the same cultural values and believed more or less the same thing as you.
The federal government of Germany does not exist for me. I am a German, but the so-called state we live in is just a construct of the elites and the Allies.
He has always been a bit quirky and done things not everybody would immediately understand. He liked to talk big and had a big mouth, but what he's accused of, the founding of a terrorist organization . . . from all I've heard from his circle of friends, that's a big joke.
It's an international phenomenon of people claiming there are conspiracies going on, people with an anti-Semitic world view who are also against Muslims, immigrants and the federal government. We've reached a point where it's not just talk. This kind of thinking is turning violent.
She is getting stronger. Please keep Piggy Bank in your thoughts. We got this far… [But] we can't control what her body does naturally. At 10:10 a.m., she went with peace. She at least had the chance to swim freely and eat happily before she passed. This led to Piggy Bank being bored, and, eventually, depressed. I want society to stop using our beliefs to harm animals. Animals should have a chance at a natural life.
This is awesome. Looks like a movie or something. If most would do same when they see stuffs like this, there would be less violence in the system.
It can be difficult and burdensome for people, to prove to a state bureaucracy their inability to meet a work requirement that has been imposed on them.
I think it's startling information.
This is about getting as many businesses as we can to have pages.
The Superintendent was visibly upset when he heard about the case and saw the pictures of the girl and incident on FB Live. He was also very dismayed when he learned that there were people (who) were watching the incident live and no one called police.
I think we were all in tears because that's the worse case we'd ever seen.
We cut him straight right away.
What's even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw this and they didn't pick up the phone and dial 911. That's just not right and [we're] working on it and try to bring it to a successful resolution.
The child is fine and is well and is in good hands as we speak. There was one other child that was located in the home and that child was removed as well and to my knowledge both those children are together in a foster care type home.
This isn't your business? Because it looks like the same floor.
They are advertising on social media, they are posting on Facebook regularly. They're using a lot of these social apps to do this and it's very difficult to follow and it's difficult to stop it.
Instead of using your family as an excuse, use them as your primary motivation for making it happen.
The mistaken idea that you have to choose between world-class success and a happy family life. If you love your family, get rich and give them more of your time, plus opportunities only money can buy. Figure out a way to be more efficient with your time so you have plenty to spend with them while you're doing it.
Not having a buy on Facebook has clearly been a mistake in 2017 and we are simply not going to allow that mistake to continue. The secular trends toward mobile devices globally and the accelerating shift of ad dollars are simply too strong to ignore, particularly with the unexpected strength of Instagram Stories and visible signs that Facebook video strategy is evolving from its early missteps centered on live video.
The conditions are met, if we keep our independence, yet do not lose our sympathy.
We are each of us cocooned in noise, and can escape from one another's only when immersed in our own.
In the immediate future, the only other potential rivals to Facebook and Google are the big 3 Chinese companies, Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent (BAT), who are riding on a wave of rising disposable incomes and a growing tech savvy population in China. The BAT companies are expected to experience resilient digital and mobile ad revenue growth as they start to fully monetize their various advertising products.
It seems like some media suffered a Heart Press Attack.
Facebook ... are now booking their Australian revenue in Australia, not in Ireland.
We're a new kind of platform for public discourse – and that means we have a new kind of responsibility to enable people to have the most meaningful conversations, and to build a space where people can be informed.
Tax cuts for wealthy v. health care for seniors? Pharmaceutical CEOs v. the disabled? In the GOP bracket, the wealthy always win.
The G.O.P. bill is not a health care plan. It's a $275 billion tax break for the wealthiest Americans. It must be defeated.
We can work with them to do that, but what they have put forth is a terrible bill, 24 million people kicked off of health insurance, which the speaker calls an act of mercy, an act of mercy.
It is with the utmost pleasure I can announce the elderly mare missing since the flood nearly two weeks ago has been found alive and mostly well today.
Thank you to all those who shared. If only horses could talk, I would love and loathe to hear her story.
Where she came from, I have no idea, because we've scoured every part of that river over and over again. She's obviously been stuck on a bank somewhere because she was a real mess. I've given her a bath to try and get some of the mud and that off her, but it's all river sand. I think she might have just earned herself a very long retirement.
Yeah, just a little bit, but it's going to grow a lot.
They can't sit there and say we are digital engineers and are not responsible. They are responsible and get on and accept it and police it properly. We have always said Google, Facebook and others are media companies and have the same responsibilities as any other media company. They cannot masquerade as technology companies, particularly when they place advertisements.
[We're] really excited – I love it. We're going to have a great time. There's a great old pub and there's a great restaurant, The French Horn, there, and it's a really beautiful, fun place to be. I'm really excited.
We actually had heard them giggling and laughing from our living room, so we were eavesdropping outside their door. We ended up spying on them for a little while on the camera to make sure they weren't getting into trouble, they weren't getting hurt. Then after a while we decided, Okay, it's time to put them to bed.' That didn't really work out so well. They sleep in their beds really well, so we are exploring toddler beds. We did change it so you can take off one of those walls, and they just ended up going in and out all night. So the cribs are good for now.
He was like, Well, since you don't have any money, you're going to help me get money.
I try to put it in the back of my head so I can just get through the day, but that was the scariest thing I ever had to deal with. It was just a lot because I'm not from here and I don't have a support system down here besides my roommate. I just felt like it was a lot.
I feel like there's a very fertile ground for a campaign like this to take root, a way to affirm that we do stand for equality and freedom and they're not okay with xenophobia or targeting people based on national heritage. They haven't been sure how to express that in a positive way, a fun way, in a way that's not political.
I was thinking about my own ethnicity. It's so unfamiliar to be suddenly targeted in my own country. I've always loved the ideals of what makes this country great, but the idea of being treated with distrust or as an outsider is something I had never experienced before. I thought it would be a lot harder to demonize a category when you realize everyone has friends in that category.
As our technology advances and it becomes easier to contact people out of the blue, we see it more often. All these very casual ways of reaching out and contacting people, I think it gives [people] permission to say: Hey, the risk is very low. She's not going to curse me out on the phone and hurt my feelings. She's just going to ignore my text message.
If you are thinking of someone you lost contact with or might have ghosted, you should reach out to that person if you have any regret or curiosity … but acknowledge the passage of time and your responsibility for it. … Just do it respectfully and like a grownup.
I think the most constructive way of doing it is getting Google and Facebook to understand the problem, which I think they do, and to get them to step up to control it just like any other media right now would in a traditional sense.
The big issue for Google and Facebook is whether they are going to have human editing at this point ... of course they have the profitability. They have the margins to enable them to do it. And this is going to be the big issue – how far are they prepared to go?
They've always maintained they were sort of digital engineers standing there with their digital spanners, trying to tighten the nuts on their digital pipes and not being responsible for the content that was going through the pipes. They can't just say look we're a technology company, we have nothing to do with the content that is appearing on our digital pages.
I was chasing my boyfriend, who had previously enlisted, . I thought what a great adventure and opportunity to be with the one I love. I had a hard time relating to nonmilitary families around me.
When conditions are good, they can raise two chicks in a season and continue to feed them. When there's little food around, they save themselves, forgetting about both eggs and chicks.
We have always said Google, Facebook and others are media companies and have the same responsibilities as any other media company. They cannot masquerade as technology companies, particularly when they place advertisements.
Consolidation in the Indian market is the name of the game. The survival of 10 to 12 local operators isn't a long-term reality.
The Indian market is very price-sensitive. There's no doubt that Reliance entering the market helped to increase internet penetration across the country.
We have responded effectively to the newcomer. Anyone who gives anything away for free in life has to charge inevitably.
In a world where the most powerful people on the planet are using fake news and alternative facts as weapons to undermine truth and those values so many of us hold so dear, it is clear that the truth itself needs some protection.
A lot of brands are appearing in a lot of bad places.
The industry needs to get together, clients and agencies, and we need to do something. If Google and Facebook – which will be 60% or 70% of that $80bn – won't do something about this, we are going to do something, which is we aren't going to advertise with you for a quarter or a month.
We take fake news very seriously – we appreciate that people's reliance on Facebook for news has increased dramatically.
We did not reflect their world view. We in liberal media left a vacuum that was readily filled by Murdoch and Breitbart and Drudge.
I am not suggesting we embolden them by accepting the message they have, we have got to understand their world.
I actually didn't tell her. I didn't want to upset her. But she saw it on Facebook, and she called me the same day. I forgot she had Facebook.
The crocodile came out of the water abruptly and took him by the waist. After that, the animal ran back into the water. His two friends were very scared and they heard the screams, but there was nothing they could do. The crocodile was like five metres.
In our view, these fears place an undue emphasis on the role of advertising impression growth for core Facebook and ignore the key drivers of new ad products, better measurement/attribution tools & sustained levels of engagement across the Facebook ecosystem.
The important thing now is separating the wheat from the chaff.
Our desire was to record that state without guile or go-to's and to pin the songs down with conviction and our straight up human bodies. I titled the album Pleasure like I was planting a seed or prophesizing some brightness. The experience of pleasure is mild or deep, sometimes temporal, sometimes a sort of low grade lasting, usually a motivator. If the way you look at things is how they look then my motivation is to look with a brighter eye.
I see this a lot on my Facebook. I'm anti-PC, and I'm probably to the left of Bernie Sanders, but in that way I'm conservative, too.
He would not let anyone near him, and kept sprinting across runways. We tried everything: food, toys, other dogs. But nothing would work.
If we cannot find more people and resources, then yes, we would have to shut down. What I want to see most is for the government to have an Elephant Fund, which I have sought for over 20 years.
I'm still working. I still love elephants. I'm asking for the government to please help us.
When you see acres and acres or oceans of bluebonnets, it can be stunning.
I looked around, and almost the entire room was filled with women. And then someone raised her hand and said, Why are there only three women in this collection?
Google, Facebook and others are media companies and have the same responsibilities as any other media company. They cannot masquerade as technology companies, particularly when they place advertisements.
The next generation of tokens clearly represents the interests of our fans around the world, and we're proud to have our iconic game impacted by the people that feel most passionate about playing it.
Google provides most of the plumbing that enables programmatic. Google is not controlling the inventory coming in well enough in advance of making it available. And buyers of ads for clients, the media agencies, are not vetting it themselves.
When they launched, everybody went straight to 3G. Suddenly everybody was on Facebook. Everybody was connected to the rest of the world.
He gets penalized on his income taxes, while these people that don't know how to pull their pants up can go get it for free. Nothing is in concrete yet. Give the man a chance. Until you hear it from Donald J. Trump himself – and not the news media – then don't even worry about it. Wait until you hear the man say it, because he will tweet it, he will Facebook it or he will go onto national television and tell everybody at the same time.
I would love to be long the stock at '3 cents.
The ad load is limited … [so] you have to be growing users and engagement violently to make maximum profit and maximum value. I'm not a buyer.
It took us a year and a half to find the group of people who did that. But we were able to take them out. And we have eight of the 10 original people that built that chip building the next generation chip now.
As a result, we believe its current valuation 'bubble' at 7X 202 EV/revenue is set up more for a [Twitter] like pop over the next year than a steady rise from today's levels. SNAP's income statement is going to look a lot more like [Twitter] than [Facebook].
We do expect the group to expand.
This holds up a light to the people in the state and helps us see how our agency is doing. For so many areas to be falling below standard is wake-up call.
The concerning piece of all this is that this is a young lady in a privatized system that was in 14 placements in nine months. The critical question has to be asked: why none of these placements was able to address her needs.
There is little we can say that adequately describes the sorrow we still feel today from the loss of Naika. It is even more exacerbated by the information that was learned during the course of the … investigation – that this is a child who endured great trauma in her life and despite many service interventions, we were not able to put the pieces back together to prevent her from taking her own life in such a public forum.
Unfortunately, what's happened here is instead of answering why the child is not protected, what they're doing is suggesting that somehow the fault lies with respect to a mother who was facing very significant challenges. Nobody's been accountable for obtaining the appropriate array of therapeutic services necessary. It's a very splintered system. There's multiple providers, and none of them address the needs.
Naika was my baby girl. I am sick and devastated. I have trusted Florida foster care people to care for my baby. Instead she kills herself on Facebook. I have to bury my baby.
Based on the information available to us, we see no indications that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day 2016.
We're good at making quick decisions and acting on them.
But then I decided to let it go, figuring it would work out, and that people couldn't really be disappointed with five days of wedding planning, . It's amazing how fast you can actually plan a wedding.
Having become aware of the unauthorised access, we immediately notified the third-party suppliers of the abta.com website who immediately fixed the vulnerability. ABTA immediately engaged security risk consultants to assess the potential extent of the incident. Specialist technical consultants subsequently confirmed that the web server had been accessed.
We recently became aware of unauthorised access to the web server supporting abta.com by an external infiltrator exploiting a vulnerability. The web server is managed for ABTA through a third party web developer and hosting company. The infiltrator exploited that vulnerability to access data provided by some customers of ABTA Members and by ABTA Members themselves via the website.
On further, urgent investigation we identified that the incident occurred on the 27th February 2017 and related to some customer information, including complaints about ABTA Members, and to documentation uploaded via abta.com in support of ABTA membership. Although encrypted, passwords used by ABTA Members and customers of ABTA Members to access our website may also have been accessed.
I would personally like to apologise for the anxiety and concern that this incident may cause to any customer of ABTA or ABTA Member who may be affected. It is extremely disappointing that our web server, managed for ABTA through a third party web developer and hosting company, was compromised, and we are taking every step we can to help those affected. I will personally be working with the team to look at what we can learn from this situation.
We are not aware of any information being shared beyond the infiltrator. We are actively monitoring the situation, but as a precautionary measure we are taking steps to warn both customers of ABTA Members and ABTA Members who have the potential to be affected. We are today contacting these people and providing them with information and guidance to help keep them safe from identity theft or online fraud. We have also alerted the relevant authorities, including the Information Commissioner and the Police.
We also call on all internet users to raise their voice to Google and Facebook to prevent toxic, fake content violating Vietnamese law in the online environment.
A Man of Infinite Cunning.
How amazing! There are millions of people who would die to do what I just did.
It almost feels like you're drifting around those edges.
There's plenty of upside for them to monetize.
I don't think it necessarily resonates with older audiences yet. They need to work on solutions to cater to people not 18 to 24 to become more like Facebook. Snap is a great app, it's not a viable app platform just yet.
At Emerson's talk on unconscious bias last summer, someone in the audience asked her which Silicon Valley companies are managing bias well.
We used the opportunity of the inclement weather on the East Coast to take the opportunity for a Republican and a Democrat to get in a car, spend a significant amount of time together, and talk about the issues. Not just the issues that divide us, but the issues that unite us too.
We appreciate that there are concerns about the spread of false information… We are focused on pure fraud and things that are intended to deceive, or for financial gain.
There have been some accusations that say that we actually want this kind of content on our service because it's more content and people click on it, but that's crap.
[Advertisers] have to cut off the air supply to fake news. They need to understand the signals of distrust and learn that they don't want their brand over 'digital urinals'. They've got to understand that quality matters. What programmatic advertising does, what individualized data and remarketing does, is cut the value of context and the value of placement. But that doesn't mean you should cut out the value of quality and the value of trust. And we've got to figure out in the advertising industry how we do that.
We as an organization are not in a position, nor should we be, where we are the arbiters of what is true and what is not true. You have all these different shades as well for parity, opinion et cetera and so news organizations such as Le Monde and AFP [Agence France-Presse] take a look at what is coming through this [reporting] tool and assess whether or not it is fake, and if they did see it as fake, it would then be marked within Facebook as disputed. By informing people, even if they want to share it, they have a right to read it, they should know that there are alternative points of view.
The ad industry too has to reinvent itself and reinvent advertising. It has to move past reach to relationships. You have to understand how to have quality relationships with people, to know communities and to know and serve their needs and not just treat them as a mass to whom we are blasting messages. We take it very seriously. It's a much bigger issue: there are a number of different parts of society that have a role to play and I appreciate that people's reliance on Facebook for news as well as other information has increased dramatically.
No-one in our community wants fake information. We are also victims of this and we do not want it on our service. We don't want any of it.
The thing that I'm most proud of, and the thing that brings me the most happiness, is my family.
Having kids does change how you think about the world in a pretty dramatic way. I used to have meetings that ran really late. But now, I make sure that three times a week, I'm home to give [Maxima] a bath.
I like taking my kids to school in the morning and dropping them off and having them know their dad is there. That feels good.
I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be.
Sequential DAU and monetization growth throughout 2017 will be key in determining the growth curve of Snapchat, and whether it's more likely to mimic Facebook in its user/advertiser appeal or Twitter.
There we go; I did it.
I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.
Conceptual metaphors seem to be the method of choice for explaining what, exactly, dark matter is. Since our understanding of dark matter is in flux, and our measurements of dark matter are difficult to visualize, we thought that the most novel way to represent it would be to move away from the literal universe and into an animated one.
We started a Facebook page called 'New York Needs a Rock-Climbing Gym,' and we got 300 friends overnight. This told us there was a lot of interest in climbing.
You'll notice that even though the GOP bill has the full support of the Trump White House, the conservatives are calling it 'Ryancare' as a way of tarring him with what they think will eventually be seen as a failure. They don't view themselves as people with specific practical goals who are willing to negotiate and perhaps compromise to reach those goals – that's for the corrupt insiders. Instead, they're heroic revolutionaries, rousing the rabble and terrifying the establishment.
They need an enemy to rebel against, and for now, Paul Ryan is it.
He is very handsome yet having a golden heart.
Mr IFZAL ZAFFAR, many citizen support you, pls keep on serving the society. Thanks!!!
Everything that is published about me, it's all lies, evil lies that bear no connection with who I really am. The media uses me as a tool to try and topple the prime minister.
#ADHD games played u sad little DCF custody jit that's what u where u at for this dumb sh– n more u keep crying wolf u dead u will get buried life goes on after a jit that doesn't listen to there parents trying to be grown seeking boys and girls attention instead of her books.
The statement that is contributed to Naika's mother was made after Naika was already deceased. But Naika's mother was told that it was all a hoax, that the suicide was a hoax and that her daughter was not deceased.
You can clearly see from the pictures that this is a dangerous site for members of the public, never mind an appropriate party venue. These events are not licensed or supported by the responsible authorities whose duty is to oversee the safety of the public. It is not an area that is easy to access so if anyone needed the assistance of the emergency services then they would have been in severe trouble. We are very lucky that we are not talking about a more serious incident, particularly when you consider that many of those involved were under the influence of alcohol.
The internet is awash with hateful content, a lot of which is incitement to hatred and violence. Currently, it often takes providers far too long to remove or block such content. It's important that the internet companies and politicians take this problem seriously, and we commend Germany for taking the lead on this.
What we are experiencing here in Ethiopia is a situation in which the flow of information on social media dismantled the traditional propaganda machine of the government and people begin creating their own media platforms. This is what the government dislikes.
The government doesn't want the spread of information that's out of its control, and this bears all the hallmarks of dictatorship.
What Tom Voltaire Okwalinga publishes is believable because the government has created a fertile ground to not be trusted. In fact, if we had an open society where transparency is a key pillar of our democracy there would be no reason for people like Tom Voltaire Okwalinga.
We worked on one Facebook site for three months and they didn't want to do it. And we worked on websites and they didn't want to do it. We can't force them. We're not forcing them. They don't have time to go out and do some of the things that we would really like to help them do. But we're there if they want to. And we're there when the need it. And we're in their offices and we're helping them.
I want to make it clear that even if I stayed here and was given life imprisonment, for example, in Brazil, it would not bring the victim back. I paid dearly, it was not easy. This will help me as an experience. It has been a learning experience, not a punishment.
His acts were almost impossible to describe without breaking down. Images from the worst nightmare you could imagine.
In Brazil we do not condemn people to death or to prison forever. Therefore, when a prisoner is released, they can find means of forming part of society; working and gaining dignity through work.
I think so. It's an emerging threat that we're all grappling with. It's not just a challenge for government. I think you can see some of the social media companies already looking at tackling some of that. I think perhaps they feel they've been exploited and they're looking to tackle that as well. Actually, I think it currently looks like an area we can collaborate and work together with industry to tackle this.
Cybercriminals will always be looking for new techniques. They'll certainly be keen to look at how they can use them. Any time when somebody discloses potentially new ways of attacking systems then the criminals are going to be really keen to weaponise them before people have had a chance to fix them.
For us any leak of data, or any leak of vulnerabilities, in an uncontrolled way, whoever does it doesn't help the security industry. We believe in responsible disclosure. We believe in if you understand vulnerabilities you have ways to disclose them responsibly. I wouldn't in any way shape or form endorse the mass leaking of anything like that.
You suck... ugly as f*** and afraid of beating the greatest. You are and always will be a stupid challenger with no wins.
They do want you to stay there the whole time, but it can make you feel like you've achieved nothing. It's quite a pleasant feeling, a flow state reasonably similar to reading a book. But after reading a book you can say you've read 20 pages, but if you spend the same hour on Facebook, you have no sense of achievement.
The more you do it, the more you want to do it, and the more you block out the outside world. So whether you win or lose, you still get that high feeling. And the more you do it, the more you block out what's going on.
You can be alone in your house but have a million Facebook or Instagram friends – it can put you in a false reality.
We commend Facebook and Instagram for this step and call on all companies who claim to value diversity and justice to also stand up and do what's needed to limit invasive social media surveillance from being used to target Black and Brown people in low-income communities.
We already have that. Facebook has become the default Muslim registry of the world.
There are many disorders in which there is too little apoptotic death, and in those cases it is activating apoptosis that could increase longevity.
Only once before has someone approached me to discuss the existential questions that might relate what is known about cell death to human existence.
Through collaboration with – or coercion of – companies, governments are also increasingly watching our every move online, and passing extreme laws that trample on our rights to privacy. In repressive regimes, it's easy to see the harm that can be caused – bloggers can be arrested or killed, and political opponents can be monitored. But even in countries where we believe governments have citizens' best interests at heart, watching everyone, all the time is simply going too far.
Targeted advertising allows a campaign to say completely different, possibly conflicting things to different groups. Is that democratic?
Snap just felt like the IPO of my time and seeing where Facebook and Amazon are now, I really think Snap has the potential to grow (like them). There are a lot of companies I don't know or recognize, but Snap, I use the product, and know everyone - my friends, my co-workers, even my parents - uses it.
The net result is that these sites show us content they think we'll click on – meaning that misinformation, or fake news, which is surprising, shocking, or designed to appeal to our biases can spread like wildfire.
We urgently need to close the 'internet blind spot' in the regulation of political campaigning. Targeted advertising allows a campaign to say completely different, possibly conflicting things to different groups. Is that democratic? As our data is then held in proprietary silos, out of sight to us, we lose out on the benefits we could realise if we had direct control over this data, and chose when and with whom to share it.
It has taken all of us to build the web we have, and now it is up to all of us to build the web we want – for everyone.
Lack of respect for the dignity and humanity of fellow members of the Department of Defense is unacceptable and counter to unit cohesion.
I'm so tired of feeling like I don't matter because I happen to exist in a bigger body. The only kind of plus size body you see in major fashion mags in a size 14 or smaller. I keep thinking things are changing, but for those of us past a size 16, it sure doesn't feel that way. We are surrounded by our heroes getting weight loss surgery, pedaling fitness to us, instead of true self love & acceptance. It genuinely feels like there is just no place for girls like me.
We are committed to serving our passionate fans. We are working with all of our partners on making sure our games, and additional content, get to our fans anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
I have come this close to the same thing happening to me in academic interviews and client video calls, but thankfully never on a global media platform, like this poor chap. At first I thought it was a no-brainer that he should have locked the door, but then I realized what would happen in my case if I locked the door: (pounding) 'Daddy! Daddy! Who are you talking to? Daddy! Can I have my orange juice?!' (more pounding). Pick your poison.
This has happened to me several times. Just the other night, I was on a video conference with a client at about 9 p.m. and suddenly he stopped and said, laughing, There is a child behind you.
There was a couple of minutes of uncomfortable silence until I explained what was happening.
The extent to which this fovea is specialized is unusual. Insects die at such high rates, and have such short generation times. As a result, they try out new evolutionary solutions much faster than we can.
We think this second proactive phase allows the animal a higher probability of catching its prey.
They basically have permanent binoculars.
This 'lock-on' phase and change in behavior during a flight is quite remarkable. We would actually expect them to do something very simple – just accelerate and hit the target.
I get so angry and jealous when friends post on Facebook about some very basic thing, like a Sunday hike with their family.
Just like when Facebook invented the [News] Feed, and every social product was like, That's an innovation, how do we adapt that to our network,' you're going to see stories pop up in other networks over time, because it's one of the best ways to show visual information in chronological order.
We really haven't had this kind of a bloom since 2005. The desert has really come alive.
What's happened in the last four or five days is extraordinary.
AOL Instant Messenger inspired some of the stuff that we've been doing recently.
We want for them to do the right thing and turn themselves in. A number of them have, a number of their family turns them in. Usually within a very short period of time their inner circle has alerted them to the fact if they didn't see it that they are on 'Wheel of Fugitive'. The reason we believe in it is because for 'Turn Them In Tuesday' we were only showing one photograph, but with 'Wheel of Fugitive' we show all 10 fugitives before picking one.
The fact that Wheel of Fugitive is being viewed that much and shared that much that it reached that level tells you the engagement we are getting in an audience. That's what we want. We want the community to be engaged and to help protect the community.
I can tell you that this exact behaviour leads to the normalisation of sexual harassment and even sexual violence.
After our difficult experience having Max, we weren't sure what to expect or whether we'd be able to have another child. When Priscilla and I first found out she was pregnant again, our first hope was that the child would be healthy. My next hope was that it would be a girl. I cannot think of a greater gift than having a sister and I'm so happy Max and our new child will have each other.
The fact that so many children could believe that they were communicating with this particular celebrity highlights the need for a serious rethink about the way that we as a society educate our children about online safety.
This investigation demonstrates both the vulnerability of children that are utilizing social media and communication applications and the global reach and skill that child sex offenders have to groom and seduce victims.
There is an expectation, particularly following the fake news controversy, that platforms have a responsibility as media companies rather than neutral tech companies to ensure that what goes on their platform is appropriate, tasteful, just like a broadcaster or a newspaper.
That does mean we have to castrate all men before they leave the basement.
Boy, she's not taking much next year.
We're asking Google and Facebook to examine if what they're doing is creating a sustainable environment for real news and asking these companies to conduct meaningful reviews of the news.
News media publishers are by far the biggest investors in original news content, accounting for 58% of the total UK investment. But the digital supply chain rewards the distributors of content, not the originators. Government and regulators cannot ignore forever the impact of the Google-Facebook duopoly on our media landscape.
All my focus heading into training for my 2017 season was on getting healthy and putting myself in the best possible fitness to successfully defend my title in London2017. But life is filled with many blessings with God. So here I am thinking about being the greatest mother I can be with my biggest blessing and the promise God made me.
Moving forward on this journey, I look forward to seeing you all in 2018 when I return to competition on the tracks and around the World.
We will not be silenced.
As a Marine Corps veteran, I am disheartened and disgusted with this scandal. Victim blaming and the excuse that some are giving that 'boys will be boys' needs to stop. I knew some of these women did not give their permission to post their photos and some were not aware that they were posted.
I'm curious about that potential for growth in the nonprofit space – have you encountered hurdles that make it more difficult to expand in that industry? To help support the success of your model and achieve broader market penetration among nonprofits, you may need to spend resources educating your clients on how to use your #donate software to their greatest advantage.
First, you need to really be clear about why you want to expand into a new business sector at this point. With more than 2,500 nonprofits using your technology you have some great traction, but there is a lot of room for growth in that industry. Companies typically go into new verticals after maximizing their growth potential in their current vertical.
Because I'd been working in the nonprofit world, I quickly realized that the way people were paying for donations was changing from people writing out and sending in checks to going onto websites to donate. I also knew how much time people were spending on social media. I realized that there was no easy way to make donations on social media.
As you explore new sectors, you will be running up against different competitors – there are a lot of players in the peer-to-peer payment space and other payment verticals. What is Goodworld's value proposition in those sectors and how does it relate to your mission? You identify strongly as a social enterprise, so it will need to be clear how processing payments outside of the nonprofit sector will result in something good for the world. Spelling that out will help you avoid mission creep that could concern investors and potential customers.
We always loved the brand and the products, and we made attempts to buy it over the years. But then Matt was able to buy it, so he won and we won.
Lean manufacturing and management informs my thinking every day, removing waste from processes and making everything more efficient. We literally rearranged the way employees physically work, putting them in closer proximity to their task. That shaves seconds off the production time, which results in more shorts being produced.
It's not a big business for us, relatively speaking, but it's important to our customers and it sells out every year.
We got one pair each summer and that was it. Like a fireman's overalls, we'd drop them beside the bed at night and pull them on first thing in the morning. They were indestructible.
There are few brands with Birdwell's legacy, reputation and customer loyalty that haven't been licensed or screwed up in some way. That's why they were so interesting to me.
People get into this flow state – here it's a sewing flow state – where they start producing at a certain speed and you don't want to say, O.K., stop doing that and now start doing this instead. And that's very much akin to software development. Engineers often talk about being 'plugged in,' and that means when you see an engineer with headphones on, it's not the time to ask them where they want to go to lunch, because they are focused on solving a problem. We have more of an endless summer vibe.
I've yet to read a single positive analysis of the House's Obamacare bill.
For the site to pass the buck instead of escalating its lax moderation of suspicious activity is deeply irresponsible – and a failing for public service and safety. Have you heard the one about the journalist and the paedophile on Facebook? When the journalist tried to raise the alarm about worrying pictures of children on the social network, Facebook reported him to the police.
His life is all about playing and running. Here, all of the brothers love him very much. He is a creature of God.
Facebook didn't adopt the statements and the postings as its own opinion. It's not Facebook that's claiming these things when users are uploading the picture.
We have to decide whether we want to accept that Facebook can basically do whatever it wants or whether German law and above all the removal of illegal contents in Germany, will be enforced. If we want that we need new laws.
They became friends through school. They are both funny and mischievous boys, so I think they are drawn to each other.
If this isn't proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don't know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.
We'll find out in the next weeks and months to come. I believe if they suspect someone, they will ask to look through their Facebook account, telephone, things like this.
In 2014, on a popular Facebook page called “Doctrine Man,” a serving Army National Guard officer wrote “let the butt hurt begin” in a thread discussing an article about one of us, Paula Broadwell, and, below it, posted a graphic image of a woman’s partially naked body impaled by a pitchfork. (Editors note: This link .
Without a mathematics to capture values of interest to society, such as fairness, we quite literally do not know what we are building.
I'm concerned that the theory will be too late to influence practice, and that 'values' will too often be viewed as 'getting in the way' of science or profit.
Targeting doesn't work. I should put it this way: The more targeted an ad is, the creepier it is and the more likely people are to resist it and block it.
They are on the hook when they contribute one way or another in their design and the way in which the information is elicited.
The question of when, if ever, Facebook as the platform that carries those advertisements becomes legally complicit is complex. I don't see sites making less use of their users' data in the future for marketing purposes.
An important thing about advertising of the traditional kind, the kind that Madison Avenue practiced for more than 100 years, is that it's not personal. It's aimed at large populations. If you want to reach black people, you go to Ebony back in the day. And if you wanted to reach camera people, you went to a camera magazine. The profiling was pretty minimal, and it was never personal.
Even defining fairness is complex.
One disgusting comment, one insensitive sentence and an officer's total lack of judgment certainly has the potential to harm that relationship.
All of us here take this incident very seriously.
It's Marine Corps wide. I went to the police to get them to take it down and they told me because I didn't live in North Carolina they couldn't do anything. I went to his command and they said, Why don't you not make sex tapes? When did being so misogynistic become a part the culture? When did being so [awful] become a character trait?
I went from being one of the main guys every time you turn on ESPN and Carolina, . . . and now it's just like 200 people are watching my game on Facebook live stream. You kind of disappear a little bit. It's been interesting.
It is against the law for anyone to distribute images of child exploitation. We also reported the child exploitation images that had been shared on our own platform. This matter is now in the hands of the authorities.
Which way do they want it? That it's illegal and their moderation isn't working or actually it's perfectly legal content, but they didn't want to do an interview?
In substance, we’ve been given the same Muslim ban as the first time around. It demands as much – if not more – opposition as its predecessor received. After Donald Trump addressed a joint session of Congress, many Americans swooned at the fact that our president could read words. For a moment, it really was shocking. Trump, who usually sounds like the Facebook account of your old high-school tormentor, barely mentioned himself in the speech. He seemed to look forward more than backward. And he was wearing a tailored suit. Who was this man?
The photo-sharing site still offers moments of kindness – and we all need a slice of rainbow cake once in a while. Like many people, I have had the moment where I have turned my back on Facebook. I’ve given up on being so connected, frustrated at how difficult it is to sit through anything without the unthinking reflex of a diversionary scroll through what people I have met at parties or old jobs are up to. But in the past, my freedom from Facebook has only ever lasted for a few weeks. I’ve always been back, digital tail between my legs, tentatively liking a status update about something funny my nephew has done.
The moderation clearly isn't being effective, I would question whether humans are moderating this, are looking at this, and also I think it is failing to take account of the context of these images.
This is a really difficult traffic safety problem, unlike any other one.
There is strong, robust technology available that could solve a lot of the distracted-driving problem immediately.
What's the difference between this and the automobile?
This was the last thing on my mind four weeks ago as I struggled to come to terms with losing our baby. Luckily cost didn't prohibit me from being able to choose how best to proceed for my mind, body, and soul. Unfortunately not everyone has that luxury. THIS is why we need Planned Parenthood and the ACA. This is why we march.
There was no way that I could just go home and wait for the inevitable to happen ... In a time that felt completely out of my control, I was thankful that I was able to choose what was right for my body and mind. It wasn't the first thing on my mind when I was making the decision of how to proceed. I still wouldn't change my mind, but some women don't have that choice... meaning their miscarriages can take weeks.
It was a big blow to us to see that we were losing everything we had invested (into Faround).
This cannot be fixed through the removal of staff and the implementation of policy and procedures only. Goldsmiths should instigate a comprehensive investigation to assess and understand its institutional culture, and how this has sustained various forms of sexual misconduct, including sexual violence and gender-based violence.
This investigation should involve all levels of the university including senior management, academic, professional and administrative staff, students and the student union. We estimate it would require at least a year to undertake. A public report should be provided along with a comprehensive action plan for change.
I felt terribly sad to know it's still a big issue and young women are still being subjected to such disgusting misuse of power, and sometimes criminal behaviour. If I hadn't seen the articles I don't think I would ever have spoken up about what happened to me at Goldsmiths.
I have had an untraditional upbringing. The social connection. It's the opposite of Facebook. It's real-life connection with current friends as well as new friends. When you run a business that operates in the 'fun' space, some people expect our back end to be fun and laid-back, too. That's not so.
The Marine Corps is deeply concerned about allegations regarding the derogatory online comments and sharing of salacious photographs in a closed website. This behavior destroys morale, erodes trust, and degrades the individual.
We are thankful that Thomas Brennan, a Marine veteran, notified the Marine Corps and NCIS about what he witnessed on the 'Marines United' page. It allowed us to take immediate action to have the explicit photos taken down and to prepare to support potential victims.
For anyone to target one of our Marines, online or otherwise, in an inappropriate manner, is distasteful and shows an absence of respect.
These negative behaviors are absolutely contrary to what we represent.
At some point an affected party could claim that due process rights were violated.
I doubt the FTC has much, if any, experience deciding whether a political contribution requires recusal.
We haven't reviewed any of those things at this time. We'll take a look at it if he's actually called to be FTC chair.
LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that's what has its payoff at the end, which I don't want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.
Once you put things on Facebook or Twitter, it's out there forever. You may want to share things now, but sometime down the road, are you going to want those pictures of you with your scars in public?
I didn't know how to tell my mother in person, so I Facebook-messaged her.
Without a doubt, the Vote Leave campaign owes a great deal of its success to the work of AggregateIQ. We couldn't have done it without them.
Clearly, there are questions to be answered about the Leave campaign's use of big data and a potentially huge 'in kind' donation by Cambridge Analytica. To have a foreign billionaire's fingerprints left all over such a seismic moment in British history is deeply concerning and requires urgent further investigation as to whether electoral law was broken.
We're portraying princesses as this one form, even though every girl can be a princess. If I would have had that kind of representation as a kid, I wouldn't have felt so alone in it.
Turns out, it's not that big a deal. I guess they're moving on to other things, like the Jeff Sessions mess.
I thought my life was about to be over.
Camera people, especially – they're looking for b-roll and quotes. People waving signs, going 'aaaah!' And then they're on to the next story. So we're going to give 'em the coverage they want. I wasn't politically active until the election, and I won't deny watching a man who I consider completely unethical get elected has influenced my desire to be politically active. They were mostly from local people. Nobody wants to think they're going to run into someone that has the level of hate and delusion I saw in those messages.
A friend called me to say 'buddy, you're about to be famous.
My friend (mother of 8 healthy children, what follows relating to no. 7) received this today from her 3 year old's kindy. I told her to put in two slices tomorrow and tell them to get lost. It seems the memo struck a chord with many parents. While many agreed we want to encourage healthy eating in children, the majority feeling was that this was poor communication, an interference in their parenting, was heavy-handed and could contribute to problems of food shaming in children.
We need to be very careful about contributing to food shaming in children, which can lead to harmful ideas about food and eating, contributing to body image issues. There needs to be open communication in a way that while supportive of school policy on healthy eating, engages with parents in an open and positive way.
That's not to say that Snap can't be a success, but it would do well to temper its expectations to the more realistic growth trajectories of pretty much any company other than Facebook.
At current levels the stock is trading at a premium to Facebook after normalising for engagement levels. This seems unsustainable given Snap's unproven monetisation potential, structurally lower profitability and likely challenges in materially reaccelerating user growth.
Chief amongst those concerns [is] ... slow user growth. When I speak to advertisers, they're salivating at the prospect of getting in front that demographic of 13- to24-year-olds. I think this is good and healthy for the tech space going forward. But Snap, the business itself – I think it's slightly unproven.
If you look at the competitive reaction, if you look at Facebook's reaction in terms of copying or imitating a lot of the features that Snapchat has, that's indicative of the issues that Facebook faces in relation to Snap and its growth. So you have a search war developing between Amazon and Google and you have a social media war, if I can put it that way, or market share war between Facebook and Snap. We'll see how far they go, that pales into relative insignificance to Google.
Google and Facebook dominate digital advertising. They own about 75 percent of the market. And they get about 100 percent of incremental spend at the moment. What our clients want and what our agencies and indeed our competitors' agencies want is more competition in the market place.
This looks and smells like Twitter to me. I'm concerned that investors will have to wait a very long time, if ever, before they see any meaningful appreciation.
Even with rosy growth forecasts, at $22 billion, we're looking at a stock trading at five to eight times estimated revenues in 2020. The only companies in that domain are Facebook and Alibaba, and they have massive scale. And both of them are profitable.
Snapchat has built a better mousetrap. It's engaging, and it's fun, especially for young people.
There is something brilliant about going public after only a few years of generating any revenue at all. The sky's the limit and history is not a guide. People are saying they'll wait for a valuation that's truly astronomical, and then take the other side of the bet. They feel Snap will be richly valued out of the gate but possibly run into trouble over the next few quarters.
When apples are mealy, the cells split apart from each other when you bite into the fruit, whereas with crisp fruits the cells rupture and release juice.
We went on for months in public hearing.
These increases confirm that there is a real appetite for factual reporting.
A declining day following a rampaging bull run is a sign of health, especially when it is associated with a gigantic, yet well run IPO. It should ultimately bring out more buyers than sellers, and more initial public offerings of companies that had been fearful to tap the markets.
When one of these blows up, it makes you feel reckless trying to save money with these flimsy pieces of paper.
…The best thing about cake (and, well, dessert in general) is that, regardless of how it looks, it always tastes great. How could it not when you are working with ingredients like butter, cream, chocolate and sugar?
…There are a million creative fixes for that not-so-perfect cake of yours. I promise none of your guests will even know the difference!
We had a duopoly [in digital ads]: Facebook, Google. I think they're going to continue to do well. But now there's a new player on the scene. Snap is a network – of younger people who are having fun. It's hard to pry those people away from the network.
We're not just chasing growth.
1) Already slowing growth in daily active users (DAUs) 2.) Slowing monetization (ARPU) [average revenue per user] growth 3.) Fierce competition from larger rivals such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp 4) Rich valuation relative to current and future growth.
I think, very much like Facebook before, the key to the company's longer term success is whether they're able to move from more of a niche product, catering to younger people to one that becomes broader, not just demographically, but around the world. And that's really the challenge for the company as they look to move from a niche product to a mass market product and monetise accordingly.
EVERYONE is fed up I assure you and we will be cancelling out bot purchased tickets and putting the reclaimed tickets back up for sale at normal price.
Snap is relatively young and it's yet to generate profits. The typical IPO tech investor will say that's fine and it doesn't matter. Snap has a chance to look at the good and the bad, the positive and negative choices of companies that come before them.
There are a lot of variables that factor into exactly how much a viral hoax story can make for its creator. But if you take Facebook shares as an indirect indicator of how widely viewed some of these sites might be, you start to understand why, if optimized properly, fake-news sites targeting hyperpartisan audiences can be lucrative.
No one really knows these websites as their own things. This is stuff that primarily shows up on news feeds.
They're not just cranking out problematic content, but then they're taking somebody and making them the face of it. … She just wants to clear her name. At least in a lot of the cases that I get involved in, you can at least look at it and understand the logic behind some of the poor decisions. Here, I just don't know.
I'm not surprised. I've seen the stock pictures used and taken all the time. … This isn't rocket science.
We've kind of been grieving together. He went to town on Facebook with jokes about it. … That made me feel more comfortable about being open about what I'm going through as well.
It was like one more thing to do.
Look at 2024 to 2027, when the company is generating significant EBITDA and cash flow. What you'd need to believe is that Snap has built a very substantial defensible position as a mobile media company among millennials. That's a generation that doesn't watch linear TV, doesn't listen to the radio, but uses Netflix and Spotify. Advertisers say look, I cannot get these people anywhere else, I need to buy somewhere. I can't let the business die with people over 30. That's a big bet. Snap is going straight up for that. Major high-quality broadcast-quality content. Not user-generated content.
Facebook, Google, and Twitter all want to tap in. My guess is that Snapchat has the inside track as a video-first mobile platform. The consumption model is curated Stories presented to the user.
Your staff are not coping, and are suffering because there is no one looking out for them. Please take it from someone who has been personally affected and has been so low she has wondered what the point of it all is, and only through her friends and family been able to see that there is more to life than policing. Frontline response is where you need to focus your time and money. This is where the buck stops.
This is meant to be adequate staffing and safe. How this can be acceptable is beyond belief. I have always worked to the best of my ability as I had pride in what I did. This however is not possible any more. I am not only sad because I see what is potentially an amazing career get ruined by hypocrisy and lack of funding; but also because I know I am not the only one going through this and not everyone that needs the help and support will be as lucky as I am to be able to leave.
Last month, the chief constable announced that, through additional budget provided by the police and crime commissioner, we will be employing nearly 100 additional police officers on to the streets and into local policing, as well as 50 criminal investigators and 30 online record takers. The extra 100 police officers will bring the total number back up to 3,000 and should help to relieve the pressure.
No one can say they don't have time to do this.
Most of it's unconscious, but you will notice consciously the wellbeing that comes with it. We don't trust our vision as much as our other senses, because vision can be so deceptive. You can't fool your nose or your ears. When you think you're with others but it's all virtual you really are alone - you have information but you do not have companionship.
I'm speaking to you tonight to inform you that the United States is under attack. The Russian government at the highest levels is trying to influence our most precious asset, our democracy.
I think the next year is going to be challenging because probably this is going to feel more like Twitter than Facebook. This is an expensive stock, so I think it's going to be choppy for the next year.
It got to the point that if I wanted to keep up with everyone's story, I'd have to sit on my phone and watch it for 25 minutes.
I don't really understand why he and his friends use the app so extensively, but I am trying to keep up. It allows me to be silly and show a silly side of myself to my son and it allows him to be silly with me.
The biggest key thing that I think Evan and his colleagues have got to demonstrate is return on investment. The number of clients say to me because of disruption … we have to make sure that the return on our media investment is considerable.
Amazon's tentacles are spreading rapidly into all areas. I think it's a defining moment in that it could well be the third force. Snap … is definitely a potential third force. The reason that Google has been successful … is that the results are very clear. Facebook is a little bit more woolly. I have always referred to Facebook as a brand mechanism as a way of building brands, rather than necessarily being about effective sales generation in the short term.
I Don't Wanna Live No More.
I had no problem about sharing my code with him.
It's real-time feedback from people who are experts in this field.
An IPO is a pricing war... If you're interested as an investor, you've got to ask, Is there value in this game?' While I think there are ways to get to $25 or $30 billion, I mean, those ways are tough to navigate. There are lots of things in the way...It's got to be Facebook lite. That scares the heck out of me as an investor. Already Facebook is trying to 'out-Snap' Snap.
As a pricing game, this could go either way. This could take off and double in the next six months, because a pricing game can have its own momentum going for it. But as a value game.... rather than track prices, I track revenues and margins, because that's what drives fundamentals.
We aim to only act on accounts when we're confident, based on our algorithms, that their behavior is abusive. Since these tools are new we will sometimes make mistakes, but know that we are actively working to improve and iterate on them everyday.
We're learning a lot as we continue our work to make Twitter safer – not just from the changes we ship but also from the mistakes we make, and of course, from feedback you share.
At the beginning of the chain are people, often women, that are working incredibly hard, that aren't getting to keep much of the value they create, because it's a complex supply chain. This could increase the quality of life for an incredible amount of people in the area. With Ashley, before she even got to the program, I would see pictures of her on Facebook in the back of a vehicle shipping onions. That's the kind of hustle you need. It's incredible to see how hands-on she was able to get at an early stage.
Even five years ago it used to be you bought an ad in the Washington Post or the New York Times and that's how you get your message across. I did a Facebook live a couple of weeks ago. I didn't even know what Facebook live was.
We were thinking on Valentine's Day, people will go out and spend that money, why shouldn't we spend it on something that's not commercialism and something that can make a difference for her and her family.
Praise be to GOD. WOW! Thanks JESUS.
Now, I know there are people who think that life is not possible without Twitter and Facebook and these things, and that 2003 was the Dark Ages.
These sites are part of the internet, but they're not the entire internet.
I think they have a pretty good shot here. Facebook has deep pockets. That allows them to put their opponent into litigation fatigue.
This is a part of the internet, but it's not the entire internet that is being taken away from these offenders.
We have to protect young people wherever they are, whether that's at school, or at summer camp or increasingly online.
Instead of buying my kids the latest Jordans or fancy electronics I paid my rent for the YEAR. I'm a single mom and I do it all by myself on a minimum wage job. I know that a roof over my kids head is what's important.
Whether on Facebook or off, we're committed to continuing to work with our partners to develop new monetization products and ad formats for digital video. It's early days, but today's updates are a step towards this goal.
We believe that we are working for the advertisers. In reality, we are working for the consumers. We should never forget that the most important person in our dealing, despite the fact that that person is not part of the contract, is the consumer. Today, everything is mixed. Advertisers are producing, marketing, selling directly, selling through many channels. Media are not exactly only media.
In the past world, not only were we working in siloes, but industries were well defined. The media was the media, an advertiser was looking for ads, for consumers and selling these products through retailers, and it was not trying to be a retailer itself, and the retailers had their role and the advertising agency theirs.
I was wrong to claim Arsenio gave Prince drugs.
Even though I am her father I cannot control things that happened when she is out there. I cannot know.
It was a really powerful product but it was hard to make a big business out of it. Schools don't make a lot of money. It got so wildly popular that they had problems keeping up with the server load. They spent a lot of time fixing that.
Entertainment is the whole game for them. They're betting that as long as people continue to be entertained and engaged that per user revenue will continue going up.
I know this is a contrarian view, but I full support the Snap founders having complete control. There's no reason for them to go through the dance of allocating different voting classes; they want control, they deserve control and they have proven they can execute with control.
We strongly urge Snap to reconsider the proposed structure, and instead go to market with a single-class voting structure, which overall is associated with stronger long-term performance and mechanism for accountability to owners.
I'm not sure how you get that much negativity out of a picture of a baby cow. We are trying to do it the right way and not mass producing animals. We are trying to give them the best life possible. When you raise them that way, they are healthy and happy. When you consume that product, it's a healthy product.
Facebook is aggressively going after sports content and they are now one of a number of competitors to traditional media outlets that are going after sports programming. It makes perfect sense that they would be going after name brand properties like the MLB. The scope of their audience is worldwide. They have a range of audiences and sports loyalties they can appeal to.
Snapchat are in creative hustle mode. When we meet with them, they are so excited about the possibilities building to IPO. I've never been in a vendor meeting when all the teams left crazy excited about what could be possible. They deserve a major high five for that.
We prefer Instagram stories because it is a similar format but with different targeting, reach and exposure.
While there's a lot of eyeballs there, advertisers are still scratching their heads, saying I'm not quite sure how this fits into my marketing scheme.
It is one of the biggest ad platforms in the world, with a humongous offshoot called Instagram and the same ad serving and retargeting platform.
That is an amazingly addictive experience for people. Millions log in daily to put branded content on their face or your child's face or your dog's face.
Not one more euro of tax payers' money should be thrown away on paying their salaries.
After careful consideration @simonschuster and its @threshold_books have cancelled publication of Dangerous by Milo Yiannopoulos.
They canceled my book.
I find those crimes to be absolutely disgusting. I find those people to be disgusting.
"Snapchat offers a cocktail of hype, insane valuations, dubious fundamentals and weak governance. However, the same was said about companies like Google and Facebook when they listed,". "For tech companies early in their lifecycle the weak governance structure is fairly typical, and even with those concerns subsequent shareholder returns have often been stellar".

How will they hold up against all the guys you don't want to be fighting against in the world - Facebook, Google and Apple?
They are going to have to get the Amazon pass - investors that don't care in the short run.
It's worrisome. Snapchat is going to have to continue to be really innovative and distinctive. It's going to be very tough to trump Facebook.
If you're going to make the bet longer-term on Snap, you are betting they are going to come up with innovative products that Facebook can't copy. That's a different direction for the company than just adding more social media capabilities.
It was a disappearing messaging product, and that's it.
Look at immigration. We have been invaded by migrants in the past few years, and our government has been incapable of dealing with it. We can't build a wall with North Africa, obviously, because there's a sea between us, but it's time to stop them from coming in one way or another. I am overwhelmed with requests to join the party. I can't keep up with them. I still have 1,500 messages on Facebook I didn't have time to read, and every day I get calls from all over Italy from people who want to start their own Trump Party, from north to south.
We want to fight the entirety of the administration.
And, not doing that awful thing of 'I am sorry if you are upset' or sorry that 'people are upset'. Always blaming other people and events you can't control creates legitimacy problems, because people interpret it as a sign that you are powerless against your environment, aren't taking responsibility for fixing things and aren't learning from setbacks and mistakes. Leadership is a balancing act between confidence and doubt, and I think he does well there.
This seems to imply an unfair treatment from people criticizing Facebook for its actions. This would create more trust in the community, but would also send a clear signal inside his own organization.
No successful CEO, or country leader, is right 100 percent of the time.
There is a case that can be made that Facebook could eventually be regarded as a news organization, which would place a much higher standard upon it to edit, curate, verify what is distributed on its platform. So is the apology necessary? He has to do something to get ahead of this issue, but my guess is that this is an effort to hold off critics until Facebook figures out what they really want to do.
We've seen this in misclassifying hate speech in political debates in both directions – taking down accounts and content that should be left up and leaving up content that was hateful and should be taken down. This has been painful for me, because I often agree with those criticizing us that we're making mistakes.
I give an A+ to Zuckerberg for taking the time, and devoting the resources, to acknowledge a few of Facebook's blindspots – then do something about them. Being uncomfortable and vulnerable, as his letter acknowledged yesterday, is one of the most powerful paths to creating inclusion.
It can be a real distraction, especially when hype is built up around a company.
I wouldn't say Netflix is obvious. I think it's still one of the most controversial names in large-cap tech. That's almost unheard of, especially for a company of that scale. That's the new wrinkle for investors.
But if you look at the rest of the XLK, it is literally around 5 percent.
It's definitely top heavy. I'm of two minds of tech.
"For the past decade, Facebook has focused on connecting friends and families. With that foundation, our next focus will be developing the social infrastructure for community – for supporting us, for keeping us safe, for informing us, for civic engagement, and for inclusion of all,". "My hope is that more of us will commit our energy to building the long term social infrastructure to bring humanity together,". "Our approach will focus less on banning misinformation, and more on surfacing additional perspectives and information, including that fact checkers dispute an item's accuracy,".

Facebook is a work in progress, and we are dedicated to learning and improving. We take our responsibility seriously, and today I want to talk about how we plan to do our part to build this global community.
"When we began, this idea was not controversial. Every year, the world got more connected and this was seen as a positive trend". "Yet now, across the world there are people left behind by globalization, and movements for withdrawing from global connection. There are questions about whether we can make a global community that works for everyone, and whether the path ahead is to connect more or reverse course".
"Our goal must be to help people see a more complete picture, not just alternate perspectives". "We've made progress fighting hoaxes the way we fight spam, but we have more work to do. We are proceeding carefully because there is not always a clear line between hoaxes, satire and opinion". "In a free society, it's important that people have the power to share their opinion, even if others think they're wrong". "Our approach will focus less on banning misinformation, and more on surfacing additional perspectives and information, including that fact checkers dispute an item's accuracy".

"Our approach will focus less on banning misinformation, and more on surfacing additional perspectives and information, including that fact checkers dispute an item's accuracy". "History has had many moments like today".
"Facebook stands for bringing us closer together and building a global community,". "When we began, this idea was not controversial. Every year, the world got more connected and this was seen as a positive trend". "Yet now, across the world there are people left behind by globalization, and movements for withdrawing from global connection,". "There are questions about whether we can make a global community that works for everyone, and whether the path ahead is to connect more or reverse course.".
"Looking ahead, one of our greatest opportunities to keep people safe is building artificial intelligence to understand more quickly and accurately what is happening across our community,". "Our goal must be to help people see a more complete picture, not just alternate perspectives,". "Accuracy of information is very important. We know there is misinformation and even outright hoax content on Facebook, and we take this very seriously".
Across the world there are people left behind by globalization, and movements for withdrawing from global connection. In times like these, the most important thing we at Facebook can do is develop the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us. One of my favourite quotes is this Bill Gates quote, that 'people overestimate what they can get done in two years and underestimate what they can get done in 10 years.' And that's an important mindset that I hope more people take today.
"Our approach will focus less on banning misinformation, and more on surfacing additional perspectives and information, including that fact checkers dispute an item's accuracy". "While we have more work to do on information diversity and misinformation, I am even more focused on the impact of sensationalism and polarization, and the idea of building common understanding". "There are billions of posts, comments and messages across our services each day, and since it's impossible to review all of them, we review content once it is reported to us,".
"Facebook stands for bringing us closer together and building a global community.... Yet now, across the world there are people left behind by globalisation, and movements for withdrawing from global connection,". "In times like these, the most important thing we at Facebook can do is develop the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us". "In a world where this physical social infrastructure has been declining, we have a real opportunity to help strengthen these communities and the social fabric of our society".
Social media and, to some degree, online news in general, are short form and there are some positives, because it forces people to focus their message. But there are negatives too. If all you have is a short message, you tend to oversimplify and you remove the nuance. Our community wants good information and no one ever said, I want misinformation.
We started with friends and family, which is the foundation of society. We always tried to offer that once we got out of the phase as a U.S. college service. We now have to build a global infrastructure that works for everyone. If you use Facebook, most people have 30 or 40 groups, but only one or two that really matter to you and you use actively. People do not seek other kinds of people out to connect. The best communities in the world have leaders. There is a lot of research that real common understanding is having nuanced understanding, things you agree with.
For a couple of decades, may be longer, people have really sold this idea that as the world comes together everything is going to get better. I think the reality is that over the long term that will be true, and there are pieces of infrastructure that we can build to make sure that a global community works for everyone. But I do think there are some ways in which this idea of globalisation didn't take into account some of the challenges it was going to create for people, and now I think some of what you see is a reaction to that.
I think we are at a point right now where a lot of people are asking how they can make the most positive impact in the world. If you want to change the direction and continue to bring the world together, [we have to define that.].
Social media and, to some degree, online news in general, are short form and there are some positives, because it forces people to focus their message. But there are negatives too. If all you have is a short message, you tend to oversimplify and you remove the nuance. We should not be that heavy handed about this, but try to do things to reduce the problem and a lot of the most egregious stuff is spam, put up by people with a really malicious financial motive make things up that are not true to make money from ads. One of the best ways to stop spam is disrupt the economics of it.
"One thing I have been wondering recently is if people misdiagnosed is that the hope for the future is all economic,". "But the things that are happening in our world now are all about the social world not being what people need and I felt like I had to address that.". "The idea of connecting the world was not controversial, but now globalization has moved so quickly, many feel left behind and that is picking up in volume,". "The question is do we come together more or reverse course and separate.".
My argument is hopefully nuanced on this, that we need strong local communities. But the biggest opportunity is also being global in the right way. You can't have that happen and not to do everything we can to make that not happen. We are nowhere near doing that. I just wanted to really get us thinking of our role in trying to keep our users safe in all kinds of ways. But I understand the concern.
In most news consumed on paper, the headline is not separate from the content. Online the headline is often the only indicator and that is a problem.
I think that the lower proposed valuation reflects feedback from institutional investors that the higher valuation is hard to justify. The concerns are about Snap, not the IPO market.
If we looked at Apple through the same lens as Gillette, it might very well be the best stock a man can get. It is one of the oldest theories when it comes to stocks that the transports have to confirm the strength in the Dow industrials before you can trust a rally … that is exactly what is happening.
The proof of the pudding is reality. Our orders are growing 25 percent a year. We are kind of first among equals in the industrial internet. We can play. We can do this.
Copper's strength is part of the traditional metrics that define economic growth and it can be a part of the rational justification for what so many believe is an irrational rally.
There is more content that is out there than there has ever been before, and this revival of content when coupled with the appropriate advertising – that is going to be the business model that evolves on the web.
"For the past decade, Facebook has focused on connecting friends and families. With that foundation, our next focus will be developing the social infrastructure for community – for supporting us, for keeping us safe, for informing us, for civic engagement, and for inclusion of all,"
A healthy society needs these communities to support our personal, emotional and spiritual needs. In a world where this physical social infrastructure has been declining, we have a real opportunity to help strengthen these communities and the social fabric of our society.
The long term promise of AI is that in addition to identifying risks more quickly and accurately than would have already happened, it may also identify risks that nobody would have flagged at all – including terrorists planning attacks using private channels, people bullying someone too afraid to report it themselves, and other issues both local and global. It will take many years to develop these systems.
"I think that the lower proposed valuation reflects feedback from institutional investors that the higher valuation is hard to justify,". "The concerns are about Snap, not the IPO market".
Snap is right to be conservative in setting the initial range. They want to avoid setting a range and then price below the range.
It's one thing to give common investors a vote and then have 500 for a different class, but it's another to give them none entirely.
It's tracking to look more like Twitter than Facebook simply from the perspective of the top line growth doesn't support a long-term oriented growth model. If you cut total usage off at the knees, then you can only grow in value by engagement, and then you only grow thereby by advertising and monetizing that user base even more than they otherwise would be.
I think Adele won because she can sing. She doesn't bring all the dancers and props, she can just stand there, and she just stood there and sang the song and that's it, and this is why she wins.
"We have to take the fake news problem very, very seriously and think about what we can do there,"
Fake news means a lot of different things to different people, and it's often very hard to draw the line, obviously, between fake news and bad journalism.

Law enforcement was attacked terribly on Facebook and officers were called in on their days off to help. At the end of the day, the professionalism shined through all the negativity and we were able to bring some closure to the family.
It is incumbent upon the ecosystem, including publishers, ad networks, programmatic companies and agencies, to prove that the capability to effectively deal with challenges such as ad fraud and brand misplacement is in place.
There is an ongoing global revolution in payment services. While we were ahead in the 1980s, that's no help in countering the competition from Facebook, Google and other platforms.
His platform risks becoming home to dangerous predators ... the company has to take responsibility for this. Fake news and hate go together. It is not being done as a joke. They are looking to discredit their adversaries. It is short-circuiting democracy.
Fake news is harming people and spreading hate. Hate is poisoning the well.
VR is in its infancy and you can segment it today into mobile, PC, and console. I don't necessarily see this as evidence that consumers aren't interested in PC VR. I see this as Best Buy not necessarily being the best place to show off PC VR in its current state.
Hugo shares my belief that virtual and augmented reality will be the next major computing platform. They'll enable us to experience completely new things and be more creative than ever before. Hugo is going to help build that future, and I'm looking forward to having him on our team.
We're making some seasonal changes and prioritizing demos at hundreds of Best Buy locations in larger markets. You can still request Rift demos at hundreds of Best Buy stores in the U.S. and Canada. We still believe the best way to learn about VR is through a live demo. We're going to find opportunities to do regular events and pop-ups in retail locations and local communities throughout the year.
The goal is to make VR and AR what we all want it to be: glasses small enough to take anywhere, software that lets you experience anything, and technology that lets you interact with the virtual world just like you do with the physical one. We're working on new ways to bring your hands in virtual and augmented reality. Wearing these gloves, you can draw, type on a virtual keyboard and even shoot webs like Spider Man. That's what I'm doing here. When it's done, this will be one of the quietist places in the world. So quiet you can hear your own heartbeat.
No one thinks that's the best solution here but the opposite – making another change – also doesn't seem like good solution. Facebook and Google are going to continue to grow at very fast rates and continue to innovate and I think that would leave Twitter far behind at this point.
The world is going through an enormous change. We used to watch three or four people tell us the news, and generally speaking most of us trusted that … now you are growing up in an environment where everyone is telling you the news and everyone is trying to influence your opinion on something. Generally society hasn't moved as fast as technology has … so all of us have been put in a position to make sure that when we hear something we automatically take it as our opinion that we think through the different views on it and unfortunately make sure it is accurate as well.
Tech is quickly becoming our favorite group as it has been left behind in the Trump bump. The sector is cyclical and so a faster economy in which rates rise helps this sector.
We have a lot of traction in retail (and) new customers like Burberry and Tory Burch are rolling out with us in the physical point-of-sale.
I've said before that I see video as a mega trend on the same order as mobile. That's why we're going to keep putting video first across our family of apps and making it easier for people to capture and share video in new ways.
"Starting today, Facebook employees will have up to 20 days paid leave to grieve an immediate family member, up to 10 days to grieve an extended family member, and will be able to take up to six weeks of paid leave to care for a sick relative,". "We're also introducing paid family sick time – three days to take care of a family member with a short-term illness, like a child with the flu.".

Amid the nightmare of Dave's death when my kids needed me more than ever, I was grateful every day to work for a company that provides bereavement leave and flexibility. I needed both to start my recovery. At a time when nearly nine of ten working women in the United States have no parental or family leave, women make 80 cents on the dollar compared to men, and there's no system of national paid leave, companies need to step-up and lead. I hope more companies will join us and others making similar moves, because America's families deserve support.
We're going to keep making big investments in VR content, and I'm excited about what's coming in 2017, from new games to more immersive educational experiences.
Over time, the 10 blue search links will likely go away. That could cause a bump in the Google story in a few years, just like the shift from desktop to mobile had a near term negative impact.
This case involves the DA's seizure of the most personal and intimate information imaginable. These are people's private thoughts and communications, on their lives, their identities, their families, their politics, their religion, their sexuality, all captured in the DA's dragnet.
Law enforcement is always going to be bumping up against people's privacy.
They say that I am a terrorist. That is not true. I live in Berlin, and every person can contact me. They changed my entire life. I cannot go out on the street, I'm always afraid. I hope, it's my wish, to find a solution. I am a human being, and we are all the same.
My sense is that as smartphone penetration grows among boomers, they're getting more into Facebook, mainly because it's the most well-established [of the social media sites]. I think they'll end up on Instagram, too. Like millennials, boomers show a desire for experiences, especially in the travel category. Both boomers and millennials are reactive in terms of wanting to go out and do something and get off the beaten path.
We'll see a real wave of fake news in the coming days. I think it's good. It's not sufficient.
Nudity is forbidden, but hate only in certain circumstances.
Some people are trying to harm the reputation of the refugees like me and they are using Facebook to spread hatred against us.
This ephemeral attention span is what's really going to just eat away at all these other new applications. So, the stickiness of it, whether people are going to stay with this application, that's the question. Twitter's a very different company even though it did come into the marketplace losing money. That's the only weapon that you have, so I would not obsess about it. If people don't want that, don't play it.
They do have the right demo and they are a camera company trying to tell a good story. But at the same time I was like, wow, you're spending a lot of money. Are you ready to come public?
I can see Snap revenue is about $400 million.
We just cleared 1,000 restaurants. In 23 years of our history there are only 42 chains that we know of that have actually achieved this milestone of 1,000 restaurants and only a handful as quickly as we have.
These are your chances to get in, not get out and don't be deterred with Facebook just because SNAP filed to go public tonight and its growth looks solid.
There aren't many of those and as it goes down over the next couple of days, which has been the pattern, I think you would be nuts to pass it up.
You can still pick stocks, but they have to be part of a broader theme, a theme solid enough that it can trump, well, Trump. Otherwise you will just jettison the stock when the 'Tweeter in Chief' frightens you into selling, at what will no doubt be an inopportune time. When you have an amazing product that is beloved and in demand worldwide and it costs very little to produce and has no serious competition. That's Facebook.
If you actually focus on the diagnostic business, which everybody is talking about as the future of car repair, we were up double-digits.
Snap's issue is not cost, but user growth and revenue per user. If they can get revenue per user into the kind of territory they think is possible, the cost of hosting will be a hit to gross margin but it's not going to be an issue.
I'm certainly seeing a lot of my teacher friends on Facebook who are politicized in ways that they never have been before.
So, feel free to sell one of the cheapest stocks in the market, as so many people did today. Go dump one of the greatest stories of all time. I don't give a darn.
That's a big position and has been for a long time. If you think about Amazon and compare it to Facebook and Google – both of which are great companies – those companies are addressing global ad markets about 500 to 600 billion. U.S. Retail alone is 5 trillion, AWS is trillions.
Right now, it's hard to see those returns.
While there wasn't direct revenue from the presidential electoral spending, we think all the controversy about the election caused a massive increase in time spent on the platform and they turned around and sold that time to other advertisers. Which is why we're still bullish because ultimately this is an auction model and it means that demand is actually behind the supply. Sheryl last night talked about – they need to do a better job proving to advertisers they saw the ad, they bought the products. They're still very early in this measurement cycle.
I don't think [Instagram Story ads] replaces the ad formats of sponsored lenses on Snapchat. It's a highly engaging unique to Snapchat format.
Investors are very focused on those long term drivers.
The expense growth guidance did come in higher than expected. I think that is what is limiting the upside on what otherwise was another spectacular quarter. We really like what Facebook is doing with this property. Yes, copying some of the best features of their peers, but being a fast follower and copying and seeing a lot of success from that. Facebook is now much more than just the big blue app. It's really a portfolio play. Lots of ways of generating incremental revenue for Facebook over the next several years.
VR for Mark [Zuckerberg] and the team has always been a long-term play. Long-term growth, one of the big drivers is going to be VR, and a report we put out this week is supportive of that.
[A] very non-promotional call. They own this space. I mean, what should you really care about? Care about Instagram – 600 million monthly average users ... Facebook 1.23 billion.
This is a $30 billion business with 50 percent operating margins that have never really existed in history on the consumer side, and so we like the stock quite a bit. Our price target is $165 a share.
The call was an endless series of repeated questions about video, which is still a very early phase for Facebook. I think the question now is with $30 billion of cash, in which directions do they move? And I think video is only one part of what they're doing.
You could think of it from a tech architect standpoint, or building out virtual reality [and] artificial reality capabilities on top of Oculus Rift as being one component. You could think of them protecting themselves over time as other businesses grow up on the consumer side, as they did with Instagram. You could also think of them acquiring, potentially, on the video side of the business or the music business as they build those platforms out.
There are times I've gone on Facebook and I've felt like it's my crazy uncle standing with a bullhorn screaming on a street corner. I think a lot of people share that experience. So far they've been very lucky because everyone wants to be on Facebook because everybody (else is) on Facebook.
I would ask for the patience of the investor community in doing that, because we're going to invest a lot in this and it's not going to return or be really profitable for us for quite a while.
You know, I think there are parts of this that are on a good trajectory, and parts where we're a little behind, where we would want to be. I think Samsung shipping 5 million Gear VRs – that's their product, not ours, but we build technology that powers it. I think that's quite a good result, and one that we're very happy with. It just shows how strong of a company that Samsung is, being able to build these products and sell them through into the world.
On the side of the products that we built, Rift and Touch, were both a little delayed, so that was obviously somewhat of a disappointment. And if you want to accelerate development, obviously, we need to get the product to the market at a good pace.
But I don't think there really is a strategy to pull this in from 10 years to five. I just think it's going to be a 10-year thing. The analogy I always use is, the first smartphones came out in 2003. The BlackBerry and Palm Treo, and it took 10 years to get to a billion units. I don't know if there was something folks could have done to make that happen fast. But I think that was pretty good. And if we can be on a similar trajectory of anywhere near 10 years for VR and AR, I would feel very good about that.
In terms of the content development, I actually think that's coming at a reasonable clip. Early on, there is this issue that if you're a triple-A game developer, until there's a certain volume of units in the field, you're not going to be able to make enough money to fund your game development, just based off of people buying your content. So that's why we're investing so much capital in content, to seed the ecosystem and solve this chicken-and-egg problem.
We are hoping that the final draft will have more details.
We will issue it as soon as possible, because the situation is worrying. Hopefully, at least Muslims won't be involved anymore in hoaxes.
The convenience and power of the iPhone has probably taken away as many white collar jobs as the countries President Trump accuses of stealing our manufacturing jobs. Probably more so.
Clearly, they're killing it right now in mobile.
I see video as a mega trend, same order as mobile.
Consumer video is exploding on our platform as Mark was talking about, and that really creates ad opportunities.
Marketers are increasingly seeing mobile and the opportunity in it, especially mobile video.
I think the rate of growth will decline, but it will remain very high. They grew 57 per cent in 2016, and our current model has 'only' 38 per cent revenue growth in 2017. That's still pretty impressive.
"I think the rate of growth will decline, but it will remain very high,". "They grew 57 percent in 2016, and our current model has 'only' 38 percent revenue growth in 2017. That's still pretty impressive.".
We're only going to do this in a way that we're comfortable with in the long term.
No one event is that big for our business.
This was (about being at) the right place at the right moment. People were upset with all those images and they wanted to help. Our cost per patient is US$8, so we're talking about 10,000 people who could be treated. This is a huge amount for us.
We like the setup on Facebook going into this print tonight. We like the stock here also, because this is one of the cheapest entry points you've had on Facebook shares since the IPO.
I have not heard yet of a case of (fees) being waved.
The people who need it most is not necessarily a multi-billion dollar organisation.
Long before this week, women – especially undocumented women – have been vulnerable to violence and abuse once they get here. Young women caught in refugee status are highly vulnerable to violence and exploitation and also often lose the chance at an education. We know that no investment has a higher return than girls' education – for them, for their families and for the countries they may someday help rebuild.
The Executive Orders issued over the past week defy the heart and values that define the best of our nation. Families have been separated. Frightened children have been detained in airports without their parents. People seeking refuge have been turned away and sent back to the danger they just managed to flee. This is not how it should be in America.
Average moves for these stocks has historically been substantially higher.
We believe FB advertising remains strong overall driven by core News Feed, video, & Instagram. … Our checks with marketers & agencies also suggest continued strong demand & no significant change in trajectory. Facebook remains our top large-cap pick.
My advice to everyone is that, if you're an American citizen, you need to remember that you must be allowed entrance to the country. Absolutely don't unlock the phone, don't provide social media accounts, and don't answer questions about your political or religious beliefs. It's not helpful and it's not legal.
For American muslims, it's been happening. They're being held for hours, they're being asked straightforwardly, what is your social media account?
We've had a nice up-trending slope in Facebook, and it looks like we've made a bit of a triple bottom recently.
Deadline Day is a huge date in the diary for everyone who loves football, it provokes countless conversations and Sky Sports News can be relied on to deliver the news as it breaks through to the final seconds. Every window we strive to find new ways for fans to follow our coverage and deliver the stories in a way that suits their busy lives.
We are thrilled to collaborate with Sky Sports to give fans on Twitter another way to watch and discuss the day's top rumours and deals as they unfold live, all on one platform.
Think bigger on both Facebook and Alphabet because these companies are doing everything they can to dominate the world, so you can't worry about a given quarter's spending as long as it has a clear path for a payoff. It makes more concerned and it should concern you, too, if it isn't resolved in a civil and lasting fashion.
Upon reflection, I regret that I did not take the time to fully understand the quiet title process and its history before we moved ahead, . For most of these folks, they will now receive money for something they never even knew they had. No one will be forced off the land.
This ban is harsher and broader than past orders by past presidents, because it covers every program that falls under global health assistance. That means it'll hurt more people. We don't have to guess–we know what this will do. The last time the global gag rule was in effect, research showed more women who lost access to contraception had unwanted pregnancies and abortion rates doubled.
I'm a realist; the stock has had a monster move. Be ready for some profit-taking.
I started my career working at the World Bank on health care in India. I saw firsthand how clinics funded by foreign aid are often the only source of health care for women. When women are given even the most basic health care information and services, they live longer, healthier lives - and they give birth to children who live longer, healthier lives. Comprehensive family planning helps prevent unintended pregnancies, deaths and abortions.
Since November, I've heard one phrase uttered over and over by senior women in the Valley: 'Why isn't Sheryl saying anything about this? I understand that Sandberg is in a brutal position, but that is the thing about standing up for what's right. It only means anything when it's inconvenient.
This week's executive order reinstating the global gag rule will make that work much harder. It bans health organizations around the world from providing counseling on all family planning options. If they refuse to abide by the ban, they could lose millions in funding from the United States. And this ban is harsher and broader than past orders by past presidents, because it covers every program that falls under global health assistance. That means it'll hurt more people. The best way to prevent abortion is through more family planning services, not fewer.
We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. Expanding the focus of law enforcement beyond people who are real threats would make all Americans less safe by diverting resources, while millions of undocumented folks who don't pose a threat will live in fear of deportation. We are a nation of immigrants, and we all benefit when the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here. I hope we find the courage and compassion to bring people together and make this world a better place for everyone.
For example, with Facebook (or those companies) it's important to see that they will have to comply with these new data protection rules, otherwise they will be sanctioned up to 4 percent of their yearly worldwide [turnover] and that can be billions in the case of a company like Facebook.
As we reflect upon longer-term trends impacting the company's core advertising business, trends seem pretty clear with Google reinforcing its co-hegemonic position alongside Facebook (FB.O) on an ongoing basis.
One of Facebook's big initiatives within its own apps and third party is promotion of native advertising, ads that fit in with the look and feel of the app. Stories can be viewed as part of that. I think Snapchat has a very engaged audience and it's strong in North America, and with a young audience. There might be a risk that if Facebook rolls Stories out into countries where Snapchat isn't as well penetrated, it could impact Snapchat's growth opportunities in areas where Snapchat isn't as big.
As you have seen in media, Facebook have said they would like to cooperate but their HQ is in America. So I have asked for their international legal assistance.
I thought it's because the position never existed before. But then I found out that everybody at Facebook really goes through the same thing.
Audiences are skittish and they want to see you to walk up to a person live on Periscope. They want it GoPro'd and Facebook Live'd – they want it unfiltered.
I would tell you that from now on if you're looking at a company and you think that they can cut costs by moving offshore and you put that in your 2017, 2018 numbers, think again, that's over. What if you're Facebook? Where do you make your stuff? California, right?
Now Snapchat is seen as the number one form of social video. Yes, Facebook Live and Instagram videos are in the market but what that does is expand awareness and expand the addressable market.
It may sound crazy, and this is why I know so much of what I do as a CEO the other guys aren't going to do ? I use social media. I have hashtag #ShoppingSaturday. I use Instagram and I use Facebook when I go shopping on Saturday to buy the ingredients for Slow Cooker Sunday.
About 64 per cent of Telenor customers nationwide are data users and most users use Facebook, Viber and some other social media only rather than email.
If I phone them they won't pick up, but if I message them on Facebook I get an answer back straight away.
@RealDonaldTrump I think, I'll keep it. So I've got 46 million people right now–that's a lot, that's really a lot–but 46 million–including Facebook, Twitter and ya know, Instagram, so when you think that you're 46 million there, I'd rather just let that build up and just keep it @realDonaldTrump, it's working.
It's the reason why we haven't recommended Facebook for certain clients. You don't know if you're going to appear next to a horrible thing, or something that is very left or very right.
Is there the possibility for Facebook to be harmed in some way? Certainly.
It does become a threatening alternative to Facebook and I think that's the big opportunity for them. We know Facebook have tried to buy Snapchat a couple of times, we know that they've made product changes as a result of Snapchat's products. I think Facebook is concerned about the potential opposition.
There is no question we play an important role in the media landscape. There are people who are discovering their news and consuming their video and other media types on Facebook ... We take that role seriously.
Facebook is earning an awful lot of money with fake news. A company that earns billions from the internet also has a social responsibility. Prosecutable defamation must be deleted immediately, once reported. It needs to be made easier for users to report fake news.
We upgrade shares of Facebook. ... 4Q checks are positive and show continued momentum. We believe FB can continue to report upside to consensus estimates in 2017.
Facebook has done a better job in investing in people's attention. It's the place where people spend their most time.
Trying to do what Google and Facebook do is not a good strategy ... We're the up-and-comer. We're going to compete for the gold medal in the future. We have to have a differentiated performance.
It's very early in the process but certainly something we are really excited about. We worked with Facebook on numerous products over the years, but often were not involved in the product development stage.
Instagram could end up being as strong a revenue component for Facebook as YouTube has been for Google.
The mindset of how you are creating content on Facebook or Instagram is that you are curating content, like 'This is my vacation photo'. With Snapchat, you know this will exist for a moment and go away. You are much more uninhibited.
It's more real or raw, and less of that manufactured and curated life that you see on Facebook and Instagram.
We want every customer to be able to order Wingstop from the channel that is the most comfortable to them – walk-in, phone-in, mobile app, mobile web, Spanish websites, Facebook Messenger, Twitter and now from their Echo.
Thanks to the leadership and advocacy of companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, and Switch, we are seeing the tech industry make major strides toward powering the internet with clean energy.
On Tuesday investor expectations for Alphabet were still relatively modest, potentially setting the stage for the company's shares to outperform. I can't say the same about Facebook and Amazon.
I heard about a bombing that killed 17 people about two hours away, and right there I was like, I don't want to stay,' . The government shut off all lines of communication so I couldn't get on Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp. It was pretty scary not to be able to communicate with anyone.
Whereas [Facebook CEO] Mark Zuckerberg has incredible programming skills and can spend a year to build an AI for his home, I've decided we should build it for all of you. We are going through unquestionably the most exciting times in the computer history that we've ever witnessed.
This presents a really challenging problem to the industry and to advertisers. The report shows plenty of exposure from Facebook and Google and the rest of the industry to this stuff.
Maybe Facebook would prefer the statue to be dressed again.
Like Twitter and Facebook, they've developed themselves initially as a social environment – one of the fastest-growing ever, by the way – particularly for millennials. I think they're off to a very promising start. They're thinking big early on, which is smart.
Expect them to become more polished and human-like, and even more ingrained in the fabric of our daily lives – whether you're ordering groceries from across the kitchen using Amazon's Alexa or transferring money to a family member using a Facebook chatbot.
Facebook's biggest quarter of the year tends to be Q4 and on a quarterly basis we are expecting over 20 percent revenue growth for the quarter. Facebook will be a solid performer in the period.
Facebook is getting slaughtered on the fake news front, but in many ways, this Google problem is more insidious. People might assume that what they're getting is vetted, and that certainly is not the case. You can go down a rabbit hole of hate because they're going to keep providing it to you.
If, after the relevant checks, Facebook does not immediately, within 24 hours, delete the offending post then [it] must reckon with severe penalties of up to 500,000 euros.
When curiosity strikes, with this new agreement in place, Harvard researchers can initiate new projects with scientific colleagues at Facebook almost immediately. This agreement with Facebook recognizes that the most significant, transformative solutions will be informed by university science.
A lot of companies learned from the headaches that Facebook had to deal with.
Facebook did not avail itself of the opportunity to regulate the issue of complaint management itself. Now market dominating platforms like Facebook will be legally required to build a legal protection office in Germany that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Google and Facebook are the single two biggest engines for monetization. I don't think you are ever going to completely eradicate it. But it could get down to a manageable level.
So we're doing several things to reduce the financial incentives. On the buying side we've eliminated the ability to spoof domains, which will reduce the prevalence of sites that pretend to be real publications. On the publisher side, we are analyzing publisher sites to detect where policy enforcement actions might be necessary. It's important to us that the stories you see on Facebook are authentic and meaningful.
We get our news from Facebook, but we don't fact-check what we're reading, we don't look into what we're reading.
So [people say], Well, we still want something to happen. Let's make the companies do this.' And they always start with the most offensive types of ideas ... things like terrorism.....We're going to get all these companies, Google, Facebook, whoever, to come together to make a database of what we think is terrorist content.
It's not exactly clear what exposure people got to fake news [during the US election] and this is an active area of research. It's difficult to get hold of data from Facebook and that's one of the main obstacles to giving a full answer.
I think the post-election sell-off in names like Salesforce or Adobe or Facebook or Electronic Arts has been a gift, which is why these stocks belong on your shopping list.
Rielly criticized the FCC's decision in October to impose stricter privacy rules on internet service providers than those imposed on websites like Facebook, Alphabet Inc's Google or Twitter Inc. Next year's commission should consider acting quickly to reverse any damaging policies put into place over the last eight years and in the last few weeks of this administration.
I do think Facebook is under a lot of scrutiny right now because of its measurements and what advertisers are actually getting.
If Facebook , YouTube, Twitter and Microsoft want to convince me and the ministers that the non-legislative approach can work, they will have to act quickly and make a strong effort in the coming months.
I texted one of my friends immediately and you know, people were checking in on Facebook, we were all checking in looking for them and they're still not accounted for and I can only think the worst at this point.
Over the course of the next 10 years we will see multiple companies get to this level, and we will see Europe produce a company on the scale of Google and Facebook.
It's happening but we're confident in the next 10 years or so we will see companies from Europe that are on the scale of a Google or a Facebook.
Most of [the] money they're spending goes on content and marketing. The infrastructure costs, the bandwidth costs, it's like 3 or 4 percent of their total cost structure. So it's pretty small. It probably wouldn't materially impact the Netflix P&L [profit and loss statement] or the Google or the Facebook P&Ls.
I think that Snapchat does everything in an unconventional way. Comparing it to Facebook or another company is an incorrect way to think about it.
The philosophy of everything we do at Facebook is that our community can teach us what we need to do. And our job is to learn as quickly as we can and keep on getting better and better.
Facebook hasn't led to empowerment of the average citizen, but empowerment of professional propagandists, fringe elements and conspiracy theorists. Voices that were lurking in the shadows are now at the center of the public discourse.
This is not one with an easy solution. There are all sorts of shades of truth, and frankly, I don't want anybody, whether it's Facebook or CNBC, telling me this is the only news I can hear. I want to have a wide range of choices.
My team and I do a ton of work in augmented and virtual reality – Facebook is expanding in that way.
These staple, pillar technology companies like Facebook, they do a lot more than what they're known for. Facebook will continue to evolve and be more than a social network. The vast majority of Facebook hires will be web developer types. ... Those are always going to exist. But computer vision, deep learning, neural networks, we're seeing a lot of demand there.
Facebook, by design, by algorithm, and by policy, has created a platform that amplifies misinformation.
What has happened with Facebook is they have reduced the exposure of the brand, who wrote the article. An article is one in a million. Giving back a little prominence [to major news outlets] is one way to reduce this issue.
News and media are not the primary things people do on Facebook, so I find it odd when people insist we call ourselves a news or media company in order to acknowledge its importance. Facebook is mostly about helping people stay connected with friends and family.
There is definitely stuff coming together and being planned that looks like the messy process of everyone and their mother throwing up something on their Facebook page.
A fake story claiming Pope Francis – actually a refugee advocate – endorsed Mr. Trump was shared almost a million times, likely visible to tens of millions. Its correction was barely heard. Of course Facebook had significant influence in this last election's outcome.
I really believe that -- the fact that I have such power in terms of numbers with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, et cetera, I think it helped me win all of these races where they're spending much more money than I spent. And I won. I think that social media has more power than the money they spent, and I think maybe to a certain extent, I proved that.
The idea that fake news on Facebook influence the election in any way is a pretty crazy idea. If you believe that then I don't think you have internalised the message Trump supporters are trying to send in this election.
We don't want any hoaxes on Facebook. Our goal is to show people the content they will find most meaningful, and people want accurate news. We have already launched work enabling our community to flag hoaxes and fake news, and there is more we can do here. We have made progress, and we will continue to work on this to improve further.
To this day he will not attend family events if he knows that I will be there, and when he does have the opportunity to respond to something I post on Facebook, it is always a bad conversation with him calling me names or dismissing my opinion as false without doing any research. I've been voting longer than he has been alive.
