On a internet, nobody reads a tiny print. It’s a fact best

legally concluded to be subjected to a horrific Human
Centipede-inspired systematic experiment. However, there’s
always a dedicated few who will review what they’re signing adult to -
and if users don’t like what they see, afterwards ready for a
Which is why, by a time Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom had
responded to a internet’s rough ire with a fast cobbled
together blog post final night, it was too late. The
damage to Instagram’s repute had already been done. Over the
past 24 hours, a sepia-tinted amicable photography had caused an
indignant snub with a latest changes to a terms of service,
sparking large Facebook posts and trending worldwide on
Twitter. These were widely – and it now appears poorly -
interpreted as Instagram, who are now owned by Facebook, announcing
that it was claiming a right to sell users’ photos to
advertisers, though essential them a penny. In his statement, Systrom
blamed overly formidable authorised jargon, writing: “To be clear: it is
not a goal to sell your photos… we honour that your photos
are your photos. Period.”
Whether Instagram‘s box was indeed bad diction or a
swift about face is debatable, though one thing is clear: this won’t
be a final time a rebel like this happens. Social media users are
getting increasingly antsy about a rights and remoteness online -
take a widely-distributed hoax this summer about copyright on Facebook, that lead hundreds of thousands of
users to post a fraudulent remoteness matter reporting control over
their photos and standing updates. Facebook debunked a claims, observant that,
”Anyone who uses Facebook owns and controls a calm and
information they post” (although there is some discuss over the
implications of diction in a full user matter that appears to
give Facebook “royalty-free, worldwide permit to use any IP
content that we post”).
The fact is, in a age of free-to-use amicable media, such
battles are inevitable. As amicable networks like Facebook and
Twitter struggle to develop a essential business
plan, there is an augmenting expostulate divided from elementary ad sales
towards monetising a calm we create. Take Facebook‘s promoted posts. In a early days,
the site speedy third celebration companies to build pages to share
content with their followers, afterwards fast capped a series of
followers they can strech though paying. For instance, if we have
a 1000 followers, a renouned post competence strech a integrate of hundred.
Only by essential $30 competence we strech a few hundred more, even if
they’re already fans. If we compensate $1,000 we competence strech tens of
thousands. Therefore, code pages are now reduction about connecting
brands with users than revelation Facebook – and a advertisers -
about a users who “like” that brand.
The emanate during a heart of a new web is trust. As with
similarly struggling newspapers, a pivotal for amicable media sites in
the destiny will be to acquire income from their users though driving
them divided to giveaway alternatives. As with newspapers, it competence be that
the best knowledge will be those value investing in in a first
place (see subscription models like a Financial Times).
If not, it will be about transparency. Instagram’s response was
swift and stage true, though a trust is gone. As Wired‘s
Nate Lanxon tweeted, “Goodbye, @instagram. You messed adult over Twitter, you
screwed adult with your new ToS, and so we now remove me to

Brands on amicable media such as Facebook or Twitter have a skinny line to tread. Too many, or too few, updates can have an inauspicious effect. A third of Internet users in a U.S. have cut amicable media ties with a code since they were receiving too many updates, according to a consult sponsored by rendezvous ad organisation SocialVibe.
Those surveyed by SocialVibe pronounced they checked their amicable media updates frequently for code updates and that extreme updates was by distant a many common reason for de-friending a code – above concerns about code values or amicable content.
The advantages of combining amicable connectors with consumers are wide-ranging. SocialVibe’s consult also suggested that 70% of amicable media users have done a squeeze as a outcome of being connected with a code on a likes of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+ and even Pinterest. In fact, 61% pronounced that a brands they initial cruise when selling are those they are connected to on amicable media.
“Brands need to be aware that connectors can be both absolute and disruptive to a amicable experience,” said Tiffany Leslie, executive of selling communications for SocialVibe. “They need to delicately establish a change between pushing faithfulness and strenuous their advocates.”

Manila, Philippines – This week (October 28 to November 3) was not all about Halloween, All Saints’ day and All Souls’ Day. It couldn’t be. Not for the short-attention-spanned social media users that we are. We always have something else going on.
We scoured the web again for content that made netizens Happy, Sad, Amused, Angry, Inspired, Afraid and Annoyed. And here are some of them:
Another singing Pinay YouTube sensation on Ellen
Two million. That’s the number of views the YouTube video of 21-year-old Zendee Rose Tenerife gained in just 3 months. Within that time frame, she made it from a mall karaoke to The Ellen DeGeneres show in the US.
Tenerife’s journey to stardom started when YouTube user Yuan Juan saw her singing at a Karaoke machine in a mall in Manila, took a video of her then uploaded it on the video hosting site.
What’s not to be happy about a rising Pinay talent discovered again through social media?
No second season for ‘Political Animals’
At Rappler, we like sharing our television shows with each other. If time allows, we even watch them together. Sadly, one of our favorite shows will not be returning for another season.
Political Animals, starring Sigourney Weaver, is a show about the wife of a former President of the United States. After divorcing her husband, she carves a political path for herself serving as the US Secretary of State. She sets her eyes on the presidency while making sure her family does not fall apart.
Politics, media and inside tracks — the show has all the ingredients of a Rappler favorite and we are saddened by tvguide.com’s report that it didn’t get enough viewers to merit a second season.
Greg Berlanti, the producer of the show, said he is proud of what the series has accomplished. He also said the show was originally marketed as a “limited series event” so they are “leaving as originally intended.”
Faux pas: Marketing over matter
Mood Meter: Annoyed
Oh no they didn’t!
While America was facing the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, clothing companies American Apparel and Gap received lots of hate on Twitter when the former sent an email blast about a “Hurricane Sandy sale” and the latter declared on Twitter that they’ll be doing lots of shopping in the midst of all.
The announcements were insensitive to many. However, in times like these, we should not spend the time on hating. We need to shift our full attention to those who need our help. Build rather than destroy, they say.
Twitter and Facebook users at your service
A person’s ability to help is only limited by his or her willingness.
Amid the chaos brought about by superstorm Sandy, two residents of the East Coast used social media to help others get to safety.
Emily Rahimi, the social media manager of the Fire Department of New York (FDNY), served as a help line on Twitter for New Yorkers coordinating rescue dispatches and posting updates as the day went along. Rahimi also made sure to reply and assure those who did not get immediate assistance that help was on the way.
FDNY’s Twitter account continues to provide updates and is still on the lookout for anyone who may need help.
In New Jersey, another area hard-hit by Sandy, a resident used a Facebook page to give updates and coordinate volunteer meetups and provide information on shelters.
Created by Justin Auciello in 2011 during Hurricane Irene, the page came in handy as Superstorm Sandy struck. Auciello crowdsourced the information and made sure he covered as much as he could to give the page’s over 170,000 subscribers timely updates.
These two people effectively used social media to help make sense of the disorder caused by the superstorm. Truly inspiring efforts.
Darth Vader in Disneyland
Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday, October 30, that it is buying Lucasfilm – the company of “Star Wars” director George Lucas, for US$4 billion. A report on CNNMoney says the acquisition makes George Lucas a big shareholder in Disney. The company will pay for Lucasfilm in cash worth $2 billion, and in stocks amounting to 40 million shares.
The company that created Mickey Mouse wasted no time announcing their acquisition in a video of Sith Lord Darth Vader taking some time off in Disneyland.
While the video is downright amusing, the news that Disney plans to add another trilogy to the legendary franchise has garnered mixed reactions and generated equally amusing memes.

Have you heard of the D-List Burn Book blog? It was set up to allegedly “take down” some fashion bloggers. Later on, a D-List End blog, which was made to look like it was against the former blog, was created. Both of the blogs are now down but the noise the blogs made are still too fresh for some to let go.
Posted on the D-List End blog were screengrabs of a Facebook chat that allegedly went on between Fashion blogger Patricia Prieto and a certain Gery Penaso, Spot.ph reports. In the screengrabs, both were allegedly talking about how they were thinking of conniving against some “maldita” fashion bloggers – mentioned were Joanna Ladrido and Tricia Gosingtian – and creating a blog about it.
If the posting and trolling doesn’t stop, Ladrido threatens to file a lawsuit.
What we can say is – make peace not war.
Sandy and Halloween
Halloween started trending as early as October 28 as people got ready for one of the most awaited occasions of the year. The social media space was filled with scary images and photos of Halloween costumes from the mentioned date.
Also, have you heard? One of the creepiest places on Earth is in the Philippines.
In other news that gave us goosebumps, here’s a video of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy from TheNationalGuard’s YouTube page.
When lawyers and government officials collide
Arroyo Lawyer Ferdinand Topacio’s reaction over a months-old blog post of presidential communications undersecretary Manolo Quezon III sparked angry reactions.
On social networking site Twitter, Topacio called Quezon a “faggot of the worst kind.” This was after the Arroyo Lawyer read Quezon’s blog detailing how then Chief Justice Renato Corona aided former President Gloria Arroyo by issuing a TRO on her travel ban. In his blog, Quezon described Topacio as “Hitler-loving.”
Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda jumped in and called Topacio a bigot.
Topacio denied he is a homophobe saying he has several gay friends and even supports the partylist Ladlad.
Gay rights activist Jonas Bagas dismissed Topacio’s tweet, calling it “hate speech.”
Bagas said, “If Topacio has anything against a public official like Manolo Quezon, then he should just stick to the issue. He shouldn’t use his alleged support for the LGBT community to pinkwash his homophobia. His gay slur is not just a personal attack against Manolo Quezon. He’s inciting hatred against our community.”
For media men like us, public personalities exchanging “sweet nothings” on Twitter is a bit amusing, but we feel this does not set a good example to the young ones.
Another story that made us angry is the spread of fake photos of Hurricane Sandy’s effects and aftermath. It was very inconsiderate and disrespectful of the efforts of those who provided legitimate updates on the superstorm. – Rappler.com

Facebook Inc. (FB) and Twitter Inc. became conduits of information for people seeking help or solace as superstorm Sandy ravaged the U.S. East Coast, reinforcing social media’s importance in connecting people in crisis.
On Facebook’s Talk Meter, which measures conversations on specific subjects, Sandy was the second-most popular U.S. topic for 2012, with only the Super Bowl driving more activity, according to the owner of the world’s largest social network. Some of the most-shared terms early today on Facebook were “we are OK,” “power” and “damage,” the company said.
Utilities and government officials turned to Twitter, a microblogging service that lets users post 140-character messages, to give the latest updates as the storm progressed. They included New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and power company Consolidated Edison Inc. (ED) Twitter itself published a blog post listing storm-related resources, accounts and hashtags to follow for real-time information, and suggestions for using the site during an emergency.
Facebook, which has more than 1 billion users worldwide, and Twitter, with more than 140 million, usually see increased traffic around storms and major news events, including Hurricane Irene in 2011, the presidential debates and the London Olympics earlier this year. Other social-media applications, such as Facebook’s Instagram mobile photo-sharing service and Google Inc. (GOOG)’s YouTube video site, have seen a rush of storm-related posts as well.
Sandy has killed 10 people in New York City, sparked a fire that razed 80 homes in a Queens, flooded tunnels of the biggest U.S. transit system and left 750,000 customers without power, including the lower third of Manhattan. Government offices and U.S. stock markets were shut for a second day today amid damage that may total billions of dollars. The Associated Press reported at least 20 U.S. deaths related to the storm.

Forty-seven percent of all amicable media users have used their networks to get patron use from a company, with use as high as 59 percent among 18-24 year olds, according to a new investigate from
Almost one in 3 amicable media users pronounced they elite to hit a association that way, and companies have schooled to respond in kind.
Seventy-one percent of those who gifted a discerning and effective response were approaching to suggest a association to others, a investigate also found, compared to usually 19 percent of business that did not accept any response.
NM Incite did not respond to a ask for serve details.
A Sea Change
The commentary paint a sea change in how consumers promulgate with brands. A few years ago, amicable media-based patron use was still seen as a niche channel that usually a few brands — typically tech companies — could be approaching to support.
Now, companies in a extended operation of industries — from consumer products to financial services to transport — are insincere to have some kind of participation on Facebook and Twitter.
There are a lot of reasons for a trend toward amicable patron service. One is a recognition of Facebook. People do all else on a site — from staying in hold with friends to personification games to receiving offers from brands. Reaching out to companies with complaints or questions is usually a healthy step.
Social Media as Microphone
Another reason a trend has taken off is that people know others are listening.
“Social media has an loudness outcome that turns patron use into a vicious marketplace tool,” Steven L. Johnson, partner highbrow of government information systems at
Temple University, told a E-Commerce Times.
“When a patron raises a patron support emanate around amicable media, that’s not usually a private review between a consumer and company, it’s a open review with an assembly of thousands, if not millions,” he said. Conversely, when people see a association providing peculiarity use around a respectful and quick response on amicable media, they are some-more approaching to condescend that company.
On a darker side, companies now live in dismay of carrying a disastrous story about their use go viral, Penny C. Sansevieri, CEO of
Author Marketing Experts, told a E-Commerce Times.
They “know that they need to stay tuned in to what’s being said,” she explained. “Once it’s out there, it’s many worse to control. Consumers know this too, and a savvy consumer knows that one erring twitter could benefit outrageous attention.”
By now, many companies are good wakeful of these dynamics and are holding steps, if they haven’t already, to set some kind of amicable media-customer use routine in place.
It isn’t difficult, Liz Cies, a open family dilettante with
AWeber, told a E-Commerce Times.
Six months ago, AWeber set about substantiating a possess process.
“We had beheld a poignant boost in business seeking support by amicable media in a final year,” Cies said.
Until that point, a company’s amicable media routine had been managed by a selling department, though with a many patron use requests entrance by amicable media a association motionless a change — namely, a grave amicable CRM routine — was in order.
“We initial kept an eye out for patron solutions group members that were quite skilful with amicable media,” she said. “After identifying those group members, we shaped a tiny amicable media group representing both selling and patron solutions. We grown grave policies and discipline for responding to customers, dynamic responsibilities for monitoring via a day, comparison a height for responding, and dynamic how a group will use inner present messaging to promulgate frequently about patron needs.”
The result, Cies said, is that patron needs voiced on amicable media are typically addressed within minutes.
More than two-thirds of social media users are politically active and the gap between Republicans and Democrats on social media use is now virtually nonexistent, according to a new Pew research poll.
This is a massive victory for Republicans, especially because social media use has been heavily dominated by liberals in the past.
According to the study of 2, 253 adults this summer who are 18 years old or older, 34 percent of Republicans use social media tools to encourage people to take political action compared with 36 percent of Democrats. And 41 percent of Republicans are likely to comment on and offer opinions about political postings and articles on social media compared with 42 percent of Democrats.
Likewise, 39 percent of Republicans re-post political content written by others compared to just 34 percent of Democrats.
Republicans’ ability to close the social media gap is crucial this election year because so many young people say they get their news from social gap. In a separate study published last month, Pew said the number of 18 -24 year-olds who told Pew they “ ‘got news or news headlines’ yesterday on social networking sites” such as facebook or Google+ had nearly tripled in the last two years. And among Americans ages 25-29 it has more than doubled.
Young people were a huge part of President Barack Obama’s successful campaign in 2008. And a major reason the Obama campaign was able to engage so many young voters was because it quickly took over the social media sphere, leaving John McCain and Republicans in the dust.
“Anyone surveying the digital political landscape would have to be struck by the apparent strength of Democrats online,” said an 2008 election analysis on Bloomberg Businessweek published a day after the election. “A Forrester report from last December found Democrats to be at least 10% more likely to participate in all forms of online social activity than the average U.S. adult.”
Conservatives have obviously learned from their past mistakes since the last presidential election and are now tied with or leading Democrats in almost every area studied by Pew.
One area that Republicans are still substantially behind Democrats, though, is using the like button on facebook to help promote political posts. Only 42 percent of conservative Republicans said they are likely to use the “like” button to promote political material compared with 52 percent Democrats. How many “likes” a post has determines where it is located on users’ homepage (toward the top, toward the bottom, or not at all) how long it stays on users’ homepage. Thus, it’s important for Republicans to understand the importance of utilizing the like button to make sure content they agree with gets the maximum amount of views.
Still, if President Barack Obama reduces his share of the youth vote this election, its clear all that time Republicans spent posting on facebook about Obama’s failed policies and unkept promises will have made a difference.
RAP Editor Francesca Chambers contributed to this report.
Adding a bit of context to a contention about amicable media’s impact on politics, a Pew Research Center expelled a investigate this morning that finds that 39% of American adults use amicable media for domestic or county purposes.
Surveying a nationally deputy organisation of over 2,000 people, a investigate found that 60% of Americans use amicable media sites and, of those, 66% rivet in domestic or county activity on a sites.
Pew looked a series of opposite forms of domestic activity, including either users were reposting domestic content, enlivening others to vote, giving their possess explanation or fasten groups. With 66% of amicable media users observant approbation to during slightest one of a criteria, it is transparent that a universe of amicable media is a strong forum for domestic discussion.
Reflecting on a findings, Lee Rainie, executive of a Pew Internet Project, wrote in an email that he expects a activity to impact a election.
“At a tallness of a discuss season,” Rainie wrote, “it is transparent that many amicable media users, generally those who caring about politics, are regulating a collection to discuss others, stay in hold with candidates, dwindle domestic news stories and research that are critical to them, and press their friends into action.”
“We’ll see a fruits of this neo-activism on Election Day,” he added.

This should come as no warn during a time when a word like “binders full of women” can now turn an Internet meme, though a new investigate shows that about 66 percent of amicable media users have used those platforms to criticism about domestic possibilities and issues.
The Pew Research Center study says younger amicable media users, and those who are possibly magnanimous Democrats or regressive Republicans, are some-more expected to post their thoughts, links to domestic element and to titillate others to take domestic action.

– 38 percent of those surveyed who used social-networking sites or Twitter favourite or promoted domestic element or amicable issues that others posted. Liberal Democrats were some-more expected to click a “like” symbol than consevative Republicans (52 percent to 42 percent).
– 35 percent have used amicable media to inspire others to vote. And 42 percent of Democrats have finished so, compared to 36 percent of Republicans and 31 percent of independents.
