On September 27, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was shown in response to allegations of sexual assault in Parliament. Facebook global policy director Joel Kaplan was also the best friend to help him out.
I wrote a note about Kaplan's attendance and asked people on Facebook's orbit. They made it. Well, now we know. Mike Isaac of the New York Times is as follows:
Mr. With the surprise appearance of Kaplan, many of the Facebook employees were upset and shocked. I was furious and shocked among Facebook employees. Some of them implicitly supported Judge Kavanov, like Facebook's support.
According to current and former employees, hundreds of workers have posted concerns on internal bulletin boards. Last Friday, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, said at a widely attended staff meeting that Mr. Kaplan was a close friend of judge Kavanaugh and violated corporate rules. did.
It seems that the document was leaked to Deepa Seetharaman of the Wall Street Journal .
On Facebook, the controversy about Kaplan represents a new division in one company. Instagram founders are still struggling with unexpected departures and the biggest data breaches in history. It is not clear what Kaplan's next assignment is only when there is a controversy.
The C family sucked at Kaplan's attendance, but at first he dismissed the employee's concerns. My favorite details in the story of Isaac went into Kaplan's schedule and I found out that actually spent 27 days in private as Kaplan said at first. In fact, it has been updated to reflect the fact that it was a personal day.)
I do not think it's worth commenting that a Facebook employee usually spends time to support the nomination of a good friend's government role. But these are not ordinary times, and this is not a normal hearing. Of the few Facebook employees whose Kavanaugh's testimony has surged, support for Kaplan's friends has become a matter of work.
As Isaac points out, Kaplan was correctly employed in . Conservative world. Facebook faces a variety of federal investigations and regulatory threats, and these days, especially the allied nations of both countries, must navigate the water. So far, Kaplan's conservatism has been regarded as a company asset.
I think there will be some excitement about a news cycle centered around executives who are still standing at free staff anywhere on Facebook's communications team. But it can also be a responsibility to protect conservative colleagues, but especially if many employees take advantage of this opportunity to work in an organization that does not have the strategic need to make the company brilliant with the Trump bureau.
Andrew Bosworth, first in 13 years, Facebook veterans and friends of Zuckerberg encouraged employees to follow their principles. Isaac again says:
"If you change your team, your company or your career and your daily life has to match your passion, we will not go see you, but we will understand," Bosworth wrote. "We will support you with the route you choose, but it is your responsibility to choose the route, not the company you go to work."
However, after the employee rebellion, Boz left his comments. "I had to listen and it was a big mistake, I wrote it in an internal post, and another meeting is scheduled for Friday, where top executives can listen to employees' concerns.

Teens posting the same thing every day in Instagram
Earlier this week, Alyssa Bereznak comically tweeted Instagram accounts. Post the same picture daily. Taylor Lorenz is already working on a version of this book today. I enjoy it.
Subtitles and stories change while this account posts the same photo every day. Some teens who run a personal account use their pages as diary or anonymous blogs to post about life and what happens in school or post about how it feels. "I had to pack all day and I was on the plane for 8 hours today," wrote the owner of an account posting the same watermelon photo every day. "Yes the girl graduated from grade 8," said the owner of @ same_picture_of_kun. "I was late on the first day of summer school."

Financial, Media, and Confounding Confidence
John Authers has a long, reflective opinion on how social media has contributed to the erosion of trust in journalism. The dangerous thing will turn out to be the next financial crisis. Sad and cool:
All the most obvious policy responses are at risk. Regulating social media now in illness and in ugliness can be an advantage, but it can be the thin end of a very long wedge. If transparency and political oversight of the central bank is strengthened, it is possible to restore confidence but it is necessary to maintain independence from politicians at risk of political system. A decade ago, it was a wonder to rehabilitate the white-collar crime system to avoid scandals that escaped a large number of escaped prisoners, but it would not have been the case if they committed or demonstrated a scapegoat.
As a matter of fact, I am definitely clear. Without the trust of the financial institution itself, the people working within it, or the media that deal with them, the next crisis can be far more deadly than the last crisis. Ask JP Morgan.

Today the trend has come to a logical conclusion with a New York City pasta restaurant that gives its full value proposition to name its own Pastagram and take pictures of food.
However, food is not completely central. Pastagram is not just bright, turquoise decor in space, but also extends the angle of social media, promising "photo phenomenon" details in every dish. "Every detail is thought to be the most photographed possible, and the aesthetic is as important as food quality today," says the press.
