🤦🏻 Facebook gør i nælderne med Research-app

Det startede med denne TechCrunch-historie:

Facebook pays teens to install VPN that spies on them

Og så gik det ellers stærkt. Facebook meldte til TechCrunch, at de havde fjernet app’en igen, men inden de nåede så langt, havde Apple blokeret den.

Men ikke alene det, Apple har også blokeret for den adgang, der gjorde det muligt for Facebook at distribuere ‘Research’-app’en udenom App Store. Årsagen til det var, at den adgang kun er til intern test af apps – ikke ekstern brug, som Facebook havde brugt den til.

Dette får ikke betydning for Facebooks almindelige apps, men det kan have voldsomme konsekvenser for deres test- og udviklings-setup, indtil de får bragt det i orden igen.

Why Facebook’s Banned ‘Research’ App Was So Invasive
Wired

Og Google retter helt selv ind, ser det ud til:

Google just disabled a private iOS app that monitored users’ iPhone usage, after it was revealed today that the app violated Apple’s distribution policies in the same way that Facebook’s usage-tracking Research app did.

The Verge

Google har siden 2012 kørt en VPN-app med navnet ‘Screenwise Meter’ igennem Apple iOS. Brugere fra 18 år og op kunne downloade app’en via et såkaldt ‘Enterprise Certificate’. Med app’en kunne Google tracke brugernes trafik, mens brugerne som betaling kunne optjene gavekort.

Version2

Så let spiller Google dog ikke. Apple blocks Google from running its internal iOS apps, skriver The Verge.

📈 Fremgang på brugere

Facebook-tallene går lidt i begge retninger i øjeblikket. I den årlige rapport fra DR Medieforskning er der et fald i brugen af Facebook, men i Facebooks egne tal for hele verden er historien en anden:

Despite what seems like a neverending barrage of privacy missteps at Facebook, users aren’t abandoning the social network. Instead, Facebook’s fourth quarter financial report show that it continues to grow, with the number of monthly active users jumping 9% to 2.23 billion during the quarter from the same period a year earlier.

🤔 Kan et ekspertpanel holde Facebook i snor?

Snapchat also is considering whether to reveal the identities of users who make those public posts.

LinkedIn’s principal product manager on the video team, Peter Roybal, told Digiday “millions” of people, companies and publishers have created videos on LinkedIn and said it’s the “fastest growing type of content on the platform.”

Her kan du læse nogle af ugens tendenser indenfor medier. Det kan være en ny metode eller tilgang eller ny teknologi, branchen forsøger at tage til sig.

🤩 Naja Nielsen skal være digital direktør hos BBC

Det er altså vildt. Godt gået!

Den tidligere nyhedschef fra DR, Naja Nielsen, skal fra april være digital direktør for BBC News. Hun forlader en stilling som chefredaktør for Orb Media i Washington DC.

MediaWatch

Naja Nielsen “breakede” selv nyheden på Twitter:

🧐 Ritzau vil forstå kunderne bedre

Ikke nok med, at de satser på robotjournalistik. Ritzau vil også blive bedre til at forstå deres kunder i mediebranchen, og det lyder til, de har fat i noget virkelig interessant:

“Det er et forsøg på at komme tættere på kunderne og forstå deres behov. Vi tror, at vi på den måde kan opdage nogle nye behov eller muligheder for forbedringer, som kunderne måske ikke selv ser eller har erkendt. Det er ikke nok at nøjes med at spørge kunderne,” siger Lars Vesterløkke.

MediaWatch

Jeg er en af dem, der i mange år har opfordret de danske medier til at lære af arbejdet med den digitale udvikling – blandt andet ved at forstå brugerne bedre. Derfor er det fantastisk at se, hvad Ritzau er ved at sætte i gang. Godt gået!

🆕 Sådan kan Apples News’ magasin-abonnementer komme til at se ud

Today, we’ve been able to activate the landing page for this new service on Apple News running on iOS 12.2. It looks like the subscription service will be called “Apple News Magazines” and it will be associated to the user’s iTunes Store account, just like Apple Music. There are many mentions of “bundle subscription” in this beta, which makes us believe this can be a part of Apple’s plan to release an all-in-one media subscription which will include Apple Music, TV shows and magazines.

🔥 Sådan øgede Kristeligt Dagblad digitalt engagement med 95%

The first question to ask when seeking to influence behavioural changes is: What makes people stick to their usual behaviour? In this case: What makes our readers stick to the printed newspaper? Is it lack of information about alternatives? Conservative beliefs that new equals bad? Or simply the fact that habits are not changed without a fight?

💸 Guide til digitalt annonce-fup

Digital ad fraud is a volume game. There are two core types: fraudulent ad impressions on any device, and click fraud — aka CPM and CPC fraud. Each type relies on volume, and that’s why there are a whole bunch of techniques used to drive large volumes of fraudulent impressions and clicks. That’s where the long list of confusing terms comes in — anything from click installs to ad stacking, and ad injection.
