(Soziale) Medien: Emotion siegt

„Why the right wing has a massive advantage on Facebook – Throughout 2020, Democrats have denounced Facebook with growing ferocity as a ‚right wing echo chamber‘ with a ‚conservative bias‘ that’s giving an edge to Donald Trump in November. – But Facebook says there’s a reason why right-wing figures are driving more engagement.

That’s not invented by social media – you just see those reflexes mirrored in social media, they’re not created by social media,‘ the executive added.“

TikTok: die Saga geht weiter

TikTok Wins Reprieve From U.S. Ban – A federal judge’s preliminary injunction means the app stores can continue offering the video app for downloads for now. – The injunction halts only the element of the ban scheduled to take effect Sunday at midnight, which would have forced TikTok off app stores run by companies like Apple and Google. It does not cover a broader set of restrictions set to take effect in November ‚at this time,‘ the judge, Carl Nichols of United States District Court for the District of Columbia, said in his order.“
