Mark Zuckerberg calls Tim Cook’s comments on Facebook ‘extremely glib’

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg hit back Apple CEO Tim Cook, calling Cook’s comments about Facebook “extremely glib.” Cook told Recode last week that he would never be in the situation that Zuckerberg has found himself in, facing backlash for the massive Cambridge Analytica data breach.

Cook said, “The truth is, we could make a ton of money if we monetized our customer — if our customer was our product. We’ve elected not to do that.” Apple, instead, has monetized products to customers, and Cook argued that was a sounder business model and not vulnerable to the same problems Facebook is having.

In an interview with Vox, Zuckerberg dismissed Cook’s argument as insincere and shallow. He said, “You know, I find that argument, that if you’re…

Vibes Comments on D.C. Circuit Overturning Restrictive Mobile Marketing Rules

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Last week, in the federal case ACA International v. Federal Communications Commission, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned key elements of a 2015 ruling that handcuffed mobile-first brands. As the only mobile engagement solution leader who petitioned for the appeal, Vibes is pleased with the court’s decision and expects that innovation in mobile marketing will surge as a result.

In 2015, the FCC released an omnibus order that attempted to clarify some rules of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). In practice however, the clarifications created even more confusion, and over-reached in areas that significantly impacted mobile marketing innovation. The FCC order exposed mobile-first brands to huge penalties, even when making opt-in marketing or business calls and texts that consumers valued and requested.

“This is a big win for mobile marketers who are legitimately obtaining consent and providing wanted communication to their customers,” said Jack Philbin, co-founder and CEO of Vibes and Chair Emeritus of the Mobile Marketing Association. “We appreciate the response and support from the D.C. Circuit of Appeals, which maintains a realistic view of today’s business landscape where consumers want to hear from and interact with their favorite brands – not to mention their bank, their insurance provider, their gym, etc. – all on their mobile phone.”

Vibes, a leading mobile engagement platform company, appreciates FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s support of this decision, as well as the support of Commissioner Michael O’Reilly and Commissioner Brendan Carr. Vibes would also like to thank the National Retail Federation, National Restaurant Association, National Association of Drug Stores, and CTIA – The Wireless Association for submitting written support to the court.

On April 26, 2018, at 1pm CT, the Vibes team and Jennifer P. Bagg, expert TCPA attorney from Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis, LLP, will host a webinar to provide thoughts on the impact of this decision on mobile marketing programs. Click here to sign up for the webinar.

Facebook is testing downvote button to flag inappropriate comments

Facebook has confirmed that is testing downvote button to flag inappropriate comments to hide them. Since it is a testing phase, it is only available to a limited set of public Page post comment reels according to TechCrunch. According to Facebook’s Spokesperson, the aim of the downvote button is to create a way for users to provide a signal to Facebook about a comment is inappropriate, uncivil, or misleading. The company clarifies that it is not a Dislike button, instead, it is a way of users giving the feedback about comments on public page posts. [HTML1] [HTML2] When a user taps the downvote button, it will hide the comment and gives users additional reporting options like “Offensive”, “Misleading”, and “Off Topic”. This will give Facebook a chance to review the comment to see the comment if it is objectionable, a form of “fake news” or irrelevant. Though Facebook has hide button, it is hidden behind the drop-down arrow, while the downvote is present right beside the like, comment buttons. Facebook further adds that it is a temporary testing and doesn’t affect the ranking of the comment, post, or Page and it is designed as a way to give feedback to Facebook. The company is testing it on 5% of Android users in …
