Source: Dubai – Arabic.net

Billionaire Mark Zuckerberg lost about $ 7.2 billion after a series of companies withdrew ads from the Facebook network.

The company’s shares fell 8.3% on Friday, the biggest daily decline in three months, after Unilever, one of the world’s largest advertisers, joined other brands in boycotting ads on the social network.

The loss of billionaire Mark Zuckerberg to fall from third to fourth on the Bloomberg billionaires index globally.

Unilever said it would stop spending money on Facebook ads this year.

The drop in the share price excluded $ 56 billion from Facebook’s market value and pushed Zuckerberg’s net worth to $ 82.3 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

The French Louis Vuitton fashion and luxury accessories, American Verizon Communications, British consumer products Unilever and Japan’s Honda Motor Company put their ads on Facebook after critics said that Facebook failed to monitor hate speech and misinformation on its platforms.

The Coca-Cola Company said that it will pause all paid ads on all social media platforms for at least 30 days.

A new feature in iOS 14 would be a severe blow to Facebook and Google

Source: Dubai – the Arab portal for technical news

Among all the announcements revealed by Apple over the past few days during the annual developer conference (WWDC 2020), there is a prominent announcement related to the operating system (iOS 14) that will find a great welcome from users, a feature to control who tracks you online.

The company has provided users with two options to choose from, one of which is explicit refusal and banning any application that it tries to track online with the aim of collecting its personal data to target it with ads, which would constitute a major blow to advertising companies, such as: Facebook and Google.

Below we will know what feature will be a severe blow to Facebook and Google in Apple’s new iOS 14 system:

Apple has announced that in order to track you online in order to send targeted ads to you, you must request applications that track you, such as: Facebook and Google, express permission to do so on the iPhone.

This feature was provided by Apple to iPhone users already in the current version of the operating system (iOS 13) iOS 13, as it allowed users to better control the applications that collect your data for the purpose of targeting you with ads, but to activate the feature requires going through many steps in the application Settings in iPhone.

But when the final version of the operating system (iOS 14) is launched during the coming fall in this year 2020, the ways to activate the feature will change dramatically, as the user will be able to know how each application in his phone tracks it and the amount of data it collects.

The user will know when the applications try to track him through the different services that he uses, because he will receive a direct notification on his phone screen saying: “There is an application that wants to obtain permission to track you through applications and websites owned by other companies, and your data will be used to provide ads specific to you.”
The user will have the option of reject or accept, as he can choose (Allow Tracking), or choose (Ask App Not To Track).

Of course, this feature will be highly welcomed by users, but at the same time it will be a nightmare for applications that make their money by selling targeted ads, such as: Facebook, Google, Twitter and other applications, where many users are expected to choose an option ( Ask the app not to track).

How will Apple make money with this feature?

Someone might say, users might also block Apple’s apps on their iPhone, well, in general Apple seems not interested in this type of business model, where we find that the company is particularly focused on making money from selling software and services, not user data, This is what we find in the big slogan that I announced last year: (What happens on iPhone remains in your iPhone).

Where the company has made it clear that it does not need your data to achieve its profits, and you know that there are other companies that care about your data more than them, so we always find it focuses heavily on the privacy and security features in each new version of its operating systems.

But these companies did not give in with Apple promoting itself as a privacy protector for users, especially Google, which has begun to show users that it also cares about privacy, by including new privacy features in the next (Android 11) operating system, and at the same time and with Apple holding its annual developer conference Google has announced several tools to help users better control and delete their data.

Finally, we find that providing Apple with more controls and privacy in their operating systems is great for its users, but it certainly won’t stop companies like Google or Facebook from tracking you more broadly.

As Apple is not the only way to prevent apps from collecting your data, but nonetheless, this major change in privacy features in the upcoming iOS 14 operating system can hold back advertising companies even a little bit from collecting your data to profit from it.

Biggest boycott ever against Facebook

While Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced new measures against hate speech and racism on Friday, the third most shared message on the platform was about a defaced monument to fallen soldiers from the Vietnam War. Black Lives Matter protesters are said to have damaged it, the post claimed, and a photo indeed showed thick graffiti letters over the stone-carved names.

Only the photo turned out to be from 2016 and the vandals of that time had no connection whatsoever with the anti-racism movement. The message was eventually removed, but had already been shared by hundreds of thousands of people.

The popularity of it fake newsmessage illustrates the point that civil society organizations and experts made this weekend: Facebook is far from doing enough to counter hate messages and disinformation.

Under pressure from the biggest ad boycott ever against Facebook, Zuckerberg announced new policies on Friday evening. Messages that violate the house rules but are newsworthy will now receive a disclaimer, as competitor Twitter has been doing for some time. The platform also broadens its definition of hate speech, now banning advertisements depicting minority groups as a threat to others. Such claims are allowed in unpaid messages.

Stop Hate for Profit, the organization behind the boycott, is not impressed. “We have experienced this before with Facebook,” said the organization this weekend. “They said sorry. They took small steps after each catastrophe involving their platform. But this has to end now. ”

Stop Hate for Profit asks advertisers not to advertise on Facebook in July because the company would do too little against hate speech and racist messages. Initially, only relatively small brands joined the promotion, but that changed when British-Dutch Unilever, one of the largest advertisers in the world, announced on Friday to support the promotion. That same evening, Zuckerberg announced the new policy.

Share price plummeted

Since then, other advertising giants, such as Coca-Cola, Levi’s, Starbucks, Honda and telecom company Verizon, have also joined the boycott. After Unilever’s announcement, Facebook’s share price plummeted by 8.3 percent. The ad stop is now supported by more than a hundred companies.

Remarkably, the boycotts of Unilever, Coca-Cola and Starbucks go even further than the call to stop ads on Facebook. The three brands have announced an ad stop on all social media. Their statements show that they see online racism not just as a problem of Facebook, but of all social media companies.

The boycott is the tentative culmination of months of action against Facebook’s moderation policy. Action groups, concerned users, but also hundreds of Facebook employees, want the platform to act more strictly. A message in which President Trump threatened violence against looters was given a disclaimer by Twitter, but admitted by Facebook – to the ire of Facebook’s critics. The fact that Facebook will now provide a disclaimer to such messages from politicians can be seen as a victory for the critics.

The promotion is reminiscent of the advertiser boycott against YouTube in 2017, when major brands turned against the video platform of Google because it showed their ads with hate videos from IS, among others. YouTube was forced by the boycott to take much stricter action.

Long history

Facebook and other social media companies have a long history of turning a blind eye to racism on their platforms. Dutch moderator Sjarrel de Charon, who worked at Facebook in 2017 and 2018, describes in his book The back of Facebook that swear words like the n-word were allowed for a long time. The n-word is still fully on Facebook. He also saw Sylvana Simons constantly pouring out racist hatred. As a public figure, Simons was less entitled to protection than regular users.

“The approach to racism by Facebook and other platforms is still lackluster,” said researcher Bharath Ganesh, who has spent years researching hate speech and far-right users on social media. Ganesh cites a recent survey by the Tech Transparency Project, which shows that of the 221 white superiority groups identified by NGOs, more than half have a Facebook page or group. He blames Facebook for “lack of commitment”.

“Facebook appears to be reluctant to block radical right-wing groups because it fears being accused of political bias,” said Ganesh.

Still, Facebook can combat hate speech. This was evident earlier this month in the evaluation of the European code of conduct against online hate messages. Social media companies have pledged to assess hate messages reported by European NGOs within 24 hours and, if necessary, to remove them.

What turned out? Facebook and Instagram rated over 90 percent of the 2,348 reported posts within that time in two months. It therefore scored better than any other internet platform.

Strangled children in Margno, on social insults to their father. “If there is hell ….”

Strangled children in Margno. “If hell exists, you’re definitely there.” And again: “Cursed”, “Ignoble”, “Unworthy”, “Crack in hell, bastard”.

Children killed by father, mother’s cry at dawn: «They don’t wake up»
12-year-old children strangled by their father in Lecco. The mother’s cry: “They don’t wake up.” Man committed suicide


As expected, the hatred of impetus, of the belly, over attempts to understand the horror of Margno, to understand what shocked the mind of Mario Bressi, the 45-year-old who strangled his two 12 years in the country in the province of Lecco and then committing suicide. And they are overwhelmingly those who prefer to insult the father than those who express solidarity with the mother of the children.

Dozens of users on Facebook have indulged in insults, threats and abuse. Unheard of verbal violence. «May you be cursed for eternity – Salvatore writes under one of the last posts published by man -. Unworthy to kill your own blood. ‘

Anastasia echoes him: «You could have killed yourself just yourself» while Mauro wishes him «to burn in hell». «And to think that those innocent souls called you Dad», adds Daniel ».

Someone expresses pain for the mother of the little ones: «What horror you have committed – reads the comments -. They were two beautiful angels. With what right! How much suffering. I pray that God in his infinite goodness can forgive you and alleviate the infinite pain of their poor mother ». Marilena, on the other hand, is incredulous: “How could you have tried hard on your children to avenge you with your wife – he says -. I see you beautiful and happy … Certainly your revenge could not have been harder ». Paul does not mince words, however: “life is an invaluable gift from our King of Kings and you have wasted it in this cowardly way, even taking it away from two angels to two creatures who had all their lives before them”

Unilever stops advertising on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in the USA | NOW

Unilever will stop advertising on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter in the United States for the rest of the year. The reason for the decision, according to the British-Dutch company, is the hateful and racist messages that appear on the platforms.

The consumer goods maker says to the Wall Street Journal that current advertisements are also removed from the social media networks. The boycott applies until at least the end of the year.

With the action, Unilever hopes to compel social media companies to take steps faster to combat the spread of hatred. “Continuing to advertise does not add value to society for now.”

Daughter company Ben & Jerry’s announced two days ago that it will no longer advertise on the platforms in July. Brands like The North Face, Patagonia, Verizon and Eddie Bauer also decided to stop advertising on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter this week.

The boycott by Unilever, one of the largest advertisers in the world, is a blow to the social networks. The consumer goods company is estimated to advertise approximately $ 42.3 million (nearly $ 38 million) per year in Facebook in the United States alone.

Due to the news of the boycotts, the Facebook share fell by 7 percent on Friday.

Call for boycotts

The boycotts seem to be a response to the call by civil rights organizations to stop advertising the social networks in July.

With the hashtag #StopHateForProfit, they stated that companies such as Facebook do too little to remove hateful messages and misleading information. Twitter was not specifically mentioned by them.

Facebook (which also includes Instagram) says in a response to invest billions of dollars annually to keep its platforms safe. However, the company says “there is still a lot of work to be done”.
