Why the hell is The Daily Caller 'fact-checking' for Facebook?

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 23:10

Nothing goes together like "fact checking" and "Tucker Carlson," right?

Facebook has a new fact-checking partner, Axios first reported Thursday: CheckYourFact.com, the fact-checking arm of The Daily Caller, a right-wing website founded by conspiracy theorist peddler Tucker Carlson.

CheckYourFact.com describes itself as "editorially independent" from The Daily Caller. Its funding comes from The Daily Caller's operating budget, ad revenue, and from a grant that's ultimately funded by conservative political groups, according to Media Matters, a watchdog organization of conservative media.  Read more...

Instagram could start hiding like counts

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 22:14

Instagram might be changing up one of the most fundamental parts of its service: likes.

New screenshots suggest the company is testing a way to hide like counts in Instagram posts. Images uncovered by researcher Jane Manchun Wong reveal Instagram feed posts that no longer show exact like counts. Instead, you see that a post was liked by a few named handles "and others."

"We want your followers to focus on what you share, not how many likes your posts get," Instagram says in an in-app message explaining the change. "During this test, only the person who shared a post will see the total number of likes it gets." Read more...

Artists on Twitter are drawing their favorite shipping dynamics for this new meme

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 21:54

Once you've binge-watched enough Netflix shows, you start to see a pattern in the characters you get invested in. You might even notice that certain types of romances have you hitting the "Next Episode" button faster than you can say "I ship it." 

Even if you don't actually read fanfiction in which romantic tropes are clearly defined and amped up to 11 (just check any of the tags on AO3.org or Fanfiction.net), there's at least one fictional dynamic that hits ya right in the feels, every time.

The internet banded together to find a homeless man's lost pet rat. It worked.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 21:32

Good news, everyone: The homeless man whose pet rat was stolen has been reunited with his beloved fur baby!

Chris and Lucy are inseparable. The pair are often spotted around Sydney, Australia — while Chris chats with passerby, Lucy snacks on vegetables and naps. But on Apr. 6, Chris left Lucy on a milk crate while he used a nearby restroom. When he returned, Lucy was gone. 

A heartbreaking photo of a devastated Chris sitting on the street without Lucy was posted across social media. 

"My pet rat Lucy was stolen on Saturday," his sign read. "Lucy is black and white with a bite of brown." 

In a screenshot of an anonymous Facebook post posted to the subreddit r/trashy, a passerby said they were "genuinely distressed" to see Chris without Lucy.  Read more...

Google to serve up rival apps to Android users as part of EU deal

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 21:14

It's not every day when a tech company recommends you check out its rival's product. But Google is being forced to do just that in Europe.

To comply with an EU antitrust ruling, the tech giant will show Android users alternative browser and search engine apps on Google Play. The store will serve up two pop-ups: one for search apps, the other for browsers. For each category, users will see a list of the top five apps.

Google's blog post on the upcoming update includes an example of what the pop-ups will look like. The image shows Google search and Google Chrome at the top of each list, followed by rival products such as Mozilla's Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and DuckDuck Go. However, the actual app recommendations will be shown in random order, and will vary depending on the country, the company said. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 20:04

Welp, it looks like millions of Instagram accounts were left out in the open for Facebook employees to see. 

A full month after Facebook admitted it mistakenly stored hundreds of million of passwords in plaintext where employees could see them, the company quietly added a significant update: that millions of Instagram passwords were also affected.

"Since this post was published, we discovered additional logs of Instagram passwords being stored in a readable format," Facebook wrote. "We now estimate that this issue impacted millions of Instagram users. We will be notifying these users as we did the others. Our investigation has determined that these stored passwords were not internally abused or improperly accessed." Read more...

HBO to Trump: Stop tweeting about 'Game of Thrones'

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Thu, 04/18/2019 - 17:52

Donald Trump may be a Game of Thrones fan, but the feeling isn't necessarily mutual.

On Thursday, after the president tweeted yet another bizarre reference to the HBO show ahead of the Mueller report drop, the network requested he stop using the show for his own personal agenda.

An HBO rep told Mashable, "Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes."

President Donald Trump’s official Facebook page shared photos of an event organized by Russian trolls, according to a redacted version of special counsel Robert Muieller’s report that was released on Thursday.

Mueller’s report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election shows that an Internet Research Agency-controlled Facebook account boasted that Donald Trump’s official Facebook page shared photos from an event it organized.

“Mr. Trump posted about our event in Miami!” wrote the IRA-run account in a private message to a U.S. Tea Party activist. “This is great!" Read more...
