Facebook proudly advertises ability to sway elections

  • The website where Facebook pitches its ad offerings to the clients that buy up user data for advertising includes a new kind of case study:
  • The campaign to re-elect Pennsylvania Republican Pat Toomey to the United States Senate.
  • Facebook shows off the way Toomey’s campaign used Facebook to spread the “best content to influence voters,” as New York Times writer John Herrman pointed out on Tuesday.
  • “This campaign used a made-for-Facebook, audience-specific content strategy to significantly shift voter intent and increase favorability for a U.S. Senate candidate from Pennsylvania, contributing to his re-election,” Facebook says on its pitch site for selling ads.
  • Toomey’s online ad buys, according to Facebook, resulted in a 19.4% increase in “voter intent” among women age 45-54, as well as a 10.5% increase for all people age 55-64.
  • The online social network is highlighting the Toomey campaign’s ability to make ads that performed exceptionally well on Facebook even as it downplays the ability of the site to influence elections. Read more (3/1/17 10:58 AM)

I’m opening ‘50 Shades of Grey’ to a random page and posting what I find. Part ten.

“But what *is* Twitter?” I asked.

“Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called ‘tweets,’” Christian Grey said. “Tweets are publicly visible by default, but senders can restrict message delivery to just their followers. Users may subscribe to other users’ tweets—this is known as 'following’ and subscribers are known as 'followers’[98] or 'tweeps,’ a portmanteau of Twitter and peeps.[citation needed]”

“But why do you want me to—”

“Shhhhh, shh shh shh shhhhh,” he said, putting a finger to my lips. “Have you turned on push notifications for replies, favs and retweets and set your phone to vibrate?”

“Yes,” I said.

He walked me to his desk and bent me over the laptop, then took the phone and slid it into my bad hole as he stuck a paper in my face.

“Now, the next time he posts anything, I want you to tweet this at the president.”

“But that’s incredibly racist.”

“Yes it is.”

Nearly 3 in 4 people say it’s harder for children to form close one-on-one friendships today than when they were children, according to the Harris Poll survey of a total of more than 2,000 U.S. adults. Among leading reasons, 83% say children have less time to play freely in their neighborhoods, where many found best friends in the past; 70% of participants cite a rise in time spent social networking online. Some 7% of children have never had a best friend, based on responses from 395 parents who participated in the poll.

One thing I feel very strongly about in terms of online social networking is that you shouldn’t friend down. By which I mean, if you’re in any position of power over somebody else, it is not appropriate for you to initiate contact with that person on a social network, whether the network is open like Tumblr or closed like Facebook. Do not friend-request your students. Do not follow your employees. If they initiate that online relationship, it is up to you whether you want to reciprocate it or not. But when you have the power in an offline dynamic, it is coercive and intrusive to attempt to connect with the other person over social media.

[News] SHINee’s Key to Star in His Very Own Reality TV Show, “Key’s Knowhow”

More details have been revealed about Key‘s new reality TV show!

While SHINee’s Key had teased fans about this solo project previously through his Instagram account, not much information was revealed about Key’s first solo reality TV show since his debut, titled “Key’s Knowhow.”

According to a report by My Daily, the show will showcase Key’s lifestyle and is expected to premiere in July. It will air through various online and social media networks first, then possibly be aired on the cable TV channel, Mnet.

However, a CJ E&M representative warned that everything is up on the air, including exactly what platform the show will air and when.

Meanwhile, Key recently became a cast member of MBC’s “My Little Television.”
