[20180730] 華爾街也對社交媒體失去信心

For Facebook and Twitter, reality is hitting hard

by Ian Sherr @CNET

上週 Facebook 和 Twitter 紛紛發佈了財報,兩者都面臨了用戶零成長、或甚至在一些地區負成長的困境,華爾街也回報以暴跌的股價 (都跌了 20% 左右),Facebook 蒸發的一千兩百億美元市值也是史上最高

Facebook 的問題大家應該非常熟悉了,我們也已經有兩篇文章討論:

  1. [20180706] 是臉書的問題還是我們自己的問題?(書評)
  2. [20180510] 構思一個比 Facebook 更好的社交平臺

Twitter 的沒有像 Cambridge Analytica 那種惡劣背叛用戶的醜聞,但是平台也常被惡意濫用,除了一些仇恨團體之外,最顯眼的應該就是美國總統川普詭異的 Twtiter 治國現象:

For Twitter, the problems have been even more pronounced. Hate mobs have used the service to coordinate campaigns against politicians, activists and victims of mass shootings. President Donald Trump has used Twitter to make some of his most controversial statements, ranging from threats against other countries to personal insults against women’s looks.

Facebook 也被用來傳播誤導資訊、陰謀論,對個人和群體進行騷擾或侮辱:

Zuckerberg in particular was publicly dismissive after the 2016 US presidential election that hoaxes and false news stories had impacted voting trends. Then he was slow to address concerns about abuse and harassment campaigns by some Facebook users, most recently the popular conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. And Facebook has been blamed as well for not watching its service closely enough to stop the spread of misinformation that led to violence in other countries.
