Instagram’s New Shopping Feature Exploits Users, Promotes Surveillance Capitalism • Children’s Health Defense

07-01-21 10:17:00,

By Nazanin Andalibi

Recently, when I opened Instagram, I noticed that the usual spot for checking notifications is now a “Shop” tab. The Instagram blog post announcing the redesign said that the change will support small businesses and connect people with their favorite brands and creators.

This made me pause. As a researcher who studies social media, people and society, I’m concerned about the effects of surveillance capitalism. This includes social media companies profiting from collecting user data, making algorithmic inferences about people’s preferences and using this information to target people with advertising.

Features like Instagram’s “Shop” tab facilitate surveillance capitalism, so it’s important to look at their consequences. Many people use Instagram to share their lives with other people, but the redesign is shifting the nature of the social media platform toward online commerce. This shift opens people to highly targeted advertising and makes them vulnerable to advertising that exploits their emotional experiences.

Shift to shopping

Research, including my own, shows that people use Instagram to record their big and mundane moments, find community, exchange social support, express identities and keep in touch with friends.

In 2017, colleagues and I showed how ad hoc communities form around the tag #depression on the platform, and how much of the discourse is to make sense of the experience of depression, record it, share it with others and exchange support with other people dealing with depression. I argued that it is important for the platform to recognize the value users find in these communities and support them, rather than ban or nudge them to go elsewhere, when they come to the platform to express themselves and build solidarity.

The notification button, represented as a heart icon, brings up a screen that indicates the interactions people have had with your Instagram presence — for example, who has liked your posts and comments. It’s likely that the notification button was the most frequently clicked tab.

When people interact with technology, they form habits. I am probably not the only one clicking the new “Shop” tab when I mean to click the notification button. It’s possible that the company did this simply to ensure that Instagram users encounter the new feature,

Instagram is Using False “Fact-Checking” to Protect Joe Biden’s Crime Record From Criticisms

Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) during the Democratic presidential debate at Tyler Perry Studios on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Toni L. Sandys/The Washington Post via Getty Images)

A long-standing and vehement criticism of Joe Biden is that legislation he championed as a Senator in the 1980s and 1990s, particularly his crime bill of 1994, contributed to the mass incarceration of Americans generally and African-Americans specifically.

Among the many on the left and libertarian right who have voiced this criticism (along with President Trump) is then-Senator Kamala Harris, who said during the 2020 Democratic primary race that Biden’s “crime bill — that 1994 crime bill — it did contribute to mass incarceration in our country.” When Hillary Clinton was running for President in 2015, Bill Clinton, who as president signed Biden’s bill into law, told the NAACP: “I signed a bill that made the problem worse. And I want to admit it.”

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) told Biden during a 2019 presidential debate: “There are people right now in prison for life for drug offenses because you stood up and used that tough-on-crime phony rhetoric that got a lot of people elected but destroyed communities like mine.” Booker then said in an interview with The Huffington Post that that Biden’s “crime bill was shameful, what it did to black and brown communities like mine [and] low-income communities from Appalachia to rural Iowa,” also denouncing it for “overwhelmingly putting people in prison for nonviolent drug offenses that members of Congress and the Senate admit to breaking now.”

NBC News, May 15, 2019

In 2016, author and scholar Michele Alexander argued that Hillary did not deserve the votes of black people due to her and her husband’s support for numerous bills, including Biden’s 1994 crime bill, that led to the mass incarceration of African-Americans. Harvard’s Cornel West said in 2019: “When [Biden] says [the 1994 crime bill] didn’t contribute to mass incarceration, I tell him he has to get off his symbolic crack pipe.”

While that debate over the damage done by Biden’s crime bill has long raged in Democratic Party politics and the criminal justice reform movement,

Instagram ‘Trusted Partner’ Caught Harvesting Vast Personal Data To Create Detailed Dossiers

08-08-19 04:21:00,

Thanks to lax oversight and technical loopholes, Instagram allowed one of its vetted advertising partners harvest vast amounts of public user data to create detailed records of users’ physical locations, bios, and photos which were intended to disappear after 24 hours, according to Business Insider

In clear violation of Instagram’s rules, the San Francisco-based marketing firm Hyp3r was able to operate under the radar for the past year as one of the company’s preferred “Facebook Marketing Partners.”

“HYP3R’s actions were not sanctioned and violate our policies. As a result, we’ve removed them from our platform. We’ve also made a product change that should help prevent other companies from scraping public location pages in this way,” said an Instagram spokesperson, following a Wednesday cease-and-desist letter sent to the Hyp3r. 

The existence of the profiles is a stark indication that more than a year after revelations that Facebook users’ data was exploited by Cambridge Analytica to fuel divisive political ad campaigns, Facebook’s struggles in locking down users’ personal information not only persist but also extend beyond the core Facebook app. Instagram, which is owned by Facebook but operated as a mostly separate business, has been largely insulated from the privacy backlash and scrutiny that has rocked its parent company.

But the wealth of the data contained in people’s fleeting Instagram activity, from family-vacation snapshots to restaurant appetizer photos, can provide valuable fodder for a variety of outside actors, who can repurpose the information in ways users never expected or agreed to. –Business Insider

While the amount of data Hyp3r scraped is currently unknown, the firm has publicly bragged about having “a unique dataset of hundreds of millions of the highest value consumers in the world,” of which more than 90% is sourced from 1 million+ Instagram posts per month, according to the report. 

 Hyp3r made unauthorized use of Instagram data in three key ways:

  1. It took advantage of an Instagram security lapse, allowing it to zero in on specific locations, like hotels and gyms, and vacuum up all the public posts made from the locations.
  2. At these locations, it systematically saved users’

Facebook und Instagram entziehen Maduro den „blauen Haken“

24-01-19 09:59:00,


10:19 24.01.2019(aktualisiert 11:28 24.01.2019) Zum Kurzlink

Die sozialen Netzwerke Instagram und Facebook haben bei den Profilen des venezolanischen Präsidenten Nicolas Maduro die blauen Verifizierung-Haken entfernt. Dafür tauchte in Instagram der blaue Haken neben dem Namen des Oppositionellen Juan Guaido auf, der sich am Mittwoch zum Präsidenten erklärt hatte.

Damit unterstützen die sozialen Netzwerke die Linie der US-Regierung, die zuvor Guaido als Übergangspräsidenten anerkannt hatten. Maduro bezeichnete das US-Vorgehen als „Imperialismus“ und Putsch-Versuch.

Der Präsident der entmachteten Nationalversammlung von Venezuela (Asamblea Nacional), Juan Guaido, hatte sich am Mittwoch während der Proteste im Land zum Staatschef des Landes erklärt. Kurz darauf erklärte US-Präsident Donald Trump, dass er Guaido offiziell als Übergangspräsidenten Venezuelas anerkenne. Das venezolanische Volk habe das „illegitime Maduro-Regime“ genug ertragen müssen.

Maduro kündigte daraufhin den kompletten Abbruch der diplomatischen Beziehungen zu den USA an und gab US-Diplomaten 72 Stunden Zeit, um das Land zu verlassen.

Nach den USA erkannten Kanada, Argentinien, Brasilien, Chile, Kolumbien, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Paraguay und Peru Guaido als Übergangspräsidenten an.

Dagegen betrachten Russland, Mexiko, Bolivien, Kuba und die Türkei Maduro weiterhin als legitimen Staatschef Venezuelas.
