To Like or Not to Like, turns out there’s really no question

Great dichotomy here, two very interesting articles, both about liking (or not liking) things on facebook, and what happens if you do/don’t.

“Liking is an economic act.” writes Mat Honan on Wired, in :

The like and the favorite are the new metrics of success—very literally. Not only are they ego-feeders for the stuff we put online as individuals, but advertisers track their campaigns on Facebook by how often they are liked. A recent New York Times story on a krill oil ad campaign . Liking is an economic act.

I like everything. Or at least I did, for 48 hours. Literally everything Facebook sent my way, I liked—even if I hated it. I decided to embark on a campaign of conscious liking, to see how it would affect what Facebook showed me. I know this sounds like a stunt (and it was) but it was also genuinely just an open-ended experiment. I wasn’t sure how long I’d keep it up (48 hours was all I could stand) or what I’d learn (possibly nothing.)

He describes a feedback loop that liking can cause:

There is a very specific form of Facebook messaging, designed to get you to interact. And if you take the bait, you’ll be shown it ad nauseam.

Facebook seems to inherently get more political and extreme when you do this:

My News Feed took on an entirely new character in a surprisingly short amount of time. After checking in and liking a bunch of stuff over the course of an hour, there were no human beings in my feed anymore. It became about brands and messaging, rather than humans with messages.

Likewise, content mills rose to the top. Nearly my entire feed was given over to Upworthy and the Huffington Post. As I went to bed that first night and scrolled through my News Feed, the updates I saw were (in order): Huffington Post, Upworthy, Huffington Post, Upworthy, a Levi’s ad, Space.com, Huffington Post, Upworthy, The Verge, Huffington Post, Space.com, Upworthy, Space.com.

By the next morning, the items in my News Feed had moved very, very far to the right. I’m offered the chance to like the 2nd Amendment and some sort of anti-immigrant page. As day one rolled into day two, I began dreading going to Facebook. It had become a temple of provocation. Just as my News Feed had drifted further and further right, so too did it drift further and further left. Rachel Maddow, Raw Story, Mother Jones, Daily Kos and all sort of other leftie stuff was interspersed with items that are so far to the right I’m nearly afraid to like them for fear of ending up on some sort of watch list.

Think Facebook will stop encouraging this? Think again.

While I expected that what I saw might change, what I never expected was the impact my behavior would have on my friends’ feeds. I kept thinking Facebook would rate-limit me, but instead it grew increasingly ravenous. My feed become a cavalcade of brands and politics and as I interacted with them, Facebook dutifully reported this to all my friends and followers.

And apparently, the more you like, not only the more does facebook suggest to you, but your friends see your obsessive liking:

That first night, a small little circle with a dog’s head popped up in the corner of my phone. A chat head, from Facebook’s Messenger software! The dog turned out to be my old WIRED editor, John Bradley. “Have you been hacked,” he wanted to know. The next morning, my friend Helena sent me a message. “My fb feed is literally full of articles you like, it’s kind of funny,” she says. “No friend stuff, just Honan likes.” I 二元期权 replied with a thumbs up. This continued throughout the experiment. When I posted a status update to Facebook just saying “I like you,” I heard from numerous people that my weirdo activity had been overrunning their feeds. “My newsfeed is 70 percent things Mat has liked,” noted my pal Heather. Eventually, I would hear from someone who worked at Facebook, who had noticed my activity and wanted to connect me with the company’s PR department.

Now, bear this in contrast to Elan Morgan’s , on Medium. In contrast to Mat’s statement “Liking is an economic act”, she writes:

The Like is the wordless nod of support in a loud room. It’s the easiest of yesses, I-agrees, and me-toos. I actually felt pangs of guilt over not liking some updates, as though the absence of my particular Like would translate as a disapproval or a withholding of affection. I felt as though my ability to communicate had been somehow hobbled. The Like function has saved me so much comment-typing over the years that I likely could have written a very quippy, War-and-Peace-length novel by now.

She writes how, despite the Like feature theoretically being meant for learning what you like and showing you more of that, it doesn’t always work that way:

You would think that liking certain updates on Facebook would teach the algorithm to give you more of what you want to see, but Facebook’s algorithm is not human. The algorithm does not understand the psychological nuances of why you might like one thing and not another even though they have comparatively similar keywords and reach similar audiences, so when I liked several videos and images of heartwarming animal stories, Facebook’s algorithm gave me more animal stories, but many of them were not heartwarming. They depicted inhumane treatment. Apparently, Facebook’s algorithm mistook my love for animals as a desire to see images of elephants being brutalized.

In showing me more of whatever it inferred that I wanted to see from my Likes, my Facebook experience included a lot of things I really didn’t like, because its algorithm doesn’t understand the many political, philosophical, and emotional shades of a given topic. Liking a local animal hospital does not equal my wanting to see abused dogs, and liking a post about a sweet wedding does not not equal my wanting to see every inspiring human who ever existed in New York.

As Mat pointed out, Liking things tends to garner more and more extreme responses from the algorithm:

It seems that the Like function had me trapped in a universe where the environment was dictated by a knee-jerk ad-bot. You like yogurt? You’ll like Extreme Yogurt more! You liked eight cute kitten videos? You’ll really want to see to this graphic image of eight kittens being tortured by scientists!

And finally, the sea change begins:

Now that I am commenting more on Facebook and not clicking Like on anything at all, my feed has relaxed and become more conversational. It’s like all the shouty attention-getters were ushered out of the room as soon as I stopped incidentally asking for those kinds of updates by using the Like function.

I feel as though reason has been restored. I can comment on a cute cat photo without being inundated with all the animal videos 800 people shared this week, and I can comment on a post about race relations without then having Facebook trot out an endless showcase of vitriol.

Facebook without the Like appears to be nearly sane.

Turns out that saying why you like something, vs passively giving a digital thumbs up only, brings the humanity back into the equation (whodathunk?):

When I disallowed myself Facebook’s Like function as a method of communication, I was left with this unmet desire to let people know I heard them or liked their content, and I suddenly felt invisible. I was reading, but no one knew I was there, which made me realize that my habitual style of Facebook interaction had to change. Without the Like function to rely on, I had to comment or risk looking anti-social and experience even more disconnection, so I started commenting more than I ever had before on the platform.

I had been suffering a sense of disconnection within my online communities prior to swearing off Facebook likes. It seemed that there were fewer conversations, more empty platitudes and praise, and a dearth of political and religious pageantry. It was tiring and depressing. After swearing off the Facebook Like, though, all of this changed. I became more present and more engaged, because I had to use my words rather than an unnuanced Like function. I took the time to tell people what I thought and felt, to acknowledge friend’s lives, to share both joys and pains with other human beings.

It turns out that there is more humanity and love in words than there are in the use of the Like.

Her conclusion:

It turns out that your friends might actually be more likeable than Facebook’s Like disruption makes them appear, and the growing sense of disconnection that many of us experience might just be due to a tone-deaf algorithm.

When we drop the Like, we might actually like each other. We might actually connect.

————————————————————-

I just wanted to say that my experience has mirrored Elan’s. Liking less and talking more has made my facebook quite human friendly. I actually took the time, a couple of years ago, to go through my “liked pages” section and actually unlike a lot of things. And now I typically try to comment instead of like whenever possible. I see others waking up to this idea and I hope to help spread it. Anything that helps us move away from reactionary interaction, to a more community oriented vibe, is fantastic in my books.

Veritasium tells us how you might not be getting what you paid for (on Facebook)

You could call this “Consumer Protection”, Derek Muller of Veritasium investigates what you really get when you try to promote your page on Facebook:

The more you know.

Speaking of privacy – how to be more private on Facebook

Here is an article from Business Insider, “How To See All The Companies That Are Tracking You On Facebook — And Block Them”, that has several tips, links and suggestions (it’s kind of hard to summarize):

It tells you how to opt-out of targeted ads, limiting ad cookies and blocking apps. But I feel like I see a post like this on an annual basis because Facebook keeps re-jiggering everything.

So, go check that out, and hopefully you don’t find anything too shocking about who was getting access to your data. Though as I am being forced to admit the validity in this statement more and more as time passes: “If you truly want to maintain your privacy, stay off the internet”.

Lessons learned from a hacker

Apparently twitter names can be really popular, and even valuable. So much so, that hackers will go to significant lengths to “steal” them. Such as in this case, “How I lost my $50,000 twitter username” on Gizmodo. It is certainly a cautionary tale.

The short version is that a hacker was able to quickly and easily break into this guy’s facebook and GoDaddy accounts, and use social engineering to trick PayPal into giving up the last 4 digits of his credit card, which allowed the hacker to hold this poor guy over the barrel until he surrendered his twitter account.

He writes:

Avoid Custom Domains for Your Login Email Address

With my GoDaddy account restored, I was able to regain access to my email as well. I changed the email address I use at several web services to an @gmail.com address. Using my Google Apps email address with a custom domain feels nice but it has a chance of being stolen if the domain server is compromised. If I were using an @gmail.com email address for my Facebook login, the attacker would not have been able to access my Facebook account.

If you are using your Google Apps email address to log into various websites, I strongly suggest you stop doing so. Use an @gmail.com for logins. You can use the nicer custom domain email for messaging purposes, I still do.

In addition, I also strongly suggest you to use a longer TTL for the MX record, just in case. It was 1 hour TTL in my case and that’s why I didn’t have enough time to keep receiving emails to the compromised domain after losing the DNS control. If it was a week-long TTL for example, I would have had a greater chance to recover the stolen accounts.

Using two-factor authentication is a must. It’s probably what prevented the attacker from logging into my PayPal account. Though this situation illustrates that even two-factor authentication doesn’t help for everything.

Conclusion

Stupid companies may give out your personal information (like part of your credit card number) to the wrong person. Some of those companies are still employing the unacceptable practice of verifying you with the last some digits of your credit card.

To avoid their imprudence from destroying your digital life, don’t let companies such as PayPal and GoDaddy store your credit card information. I just removed mine. I’ll also be leaving GoDaddy and PayPal as soon as possible.

The Problem with Facebook

This one comes from Veritasium on YouTube, and he puts it in terms that anyone can understand.

I’ve certainly noticed that I only seem to see posts in my newsfeed from prehaps 12-15 friends (out of currently 175 total). I often wonder what I’m not seeing, but without going to specific people’s pages to intentionally interact with them, they won’t show up.

I don’t have a whole lot of time for social media these days, I tend to spend most of my time on youtube or reddit, precisely because I can see everything and I can look at what I want, when I want.

Censorship is dumb. You can help fix that.

So, this one is NSFW, but very worth seeing and spreading the word about.

You may have heard how recently Facebook allowed a video of a beheading to be shared on their site, but that they don’t allow “pornographic” content such as images of women breast-feeding, or even artisticly done nude photography.

Well there’s a real life example of how selectively silly censorship can be – Nipples.

You can see men’s nipples on TV, in movies, on the internet, but women’s nipples are often obscured or blocked out with black dots or bars. In the state of New York, it is legal for women to be topless in public, yet for some reason, if women go topless in public, they still get arrested and detained for doing something that is not illegal.

Enter the Free the Nipple campaign. It’s a kickstarter-like project aimed at making a documentary about this kind of censorship. Their goal is $250,000 to help fund this production and help get the message out.

Facebook has apparently closed and unpublished their organization page on the site.

They have a few celebrities on board already, including Miley Cyrus and Jeneane Garofalo.

I have covered Charities and Philanthropic organizations and projects on this site before, and this is another one that I support and will be contributing to. I encourage you to do the same if you agree that this selective censorship is silly and sexist. For one thing, looking at their page (and all the uncovered female nipples that are visible), I can’t help but feel like I’m looking at something I shouldn’t be, because I’ve been so programmed that nudity is bad and wrong and taboo. Their project seeks in part liberation of a harmless natural body part that can help reduce body and sexual shame among the population. But that’s just my crazy hippie opinion 😉

I also recommend checking out the documentary “This Film is Not Yet Rated”, about the MPAA and their rating practices and standards.
