How Facebook polarized us during the Kavanaugh hearings

Polarization of US voters appeared before Facebook arrived at the scene. But the crucial question for social networks is whether virus epidemiology and virus dynamics on YouTube, Twitter and other platforms have accelerated the disruption.

Today we are the phenomenon. The first relates to the fight surrounding Brett Kavanaugh being confirmed to the Supreme Court. During the general decline of sharing news stories on Facebook, the heated battle over Kavanaugh was the best actor on the site.

Daily Wire's main article on Kavanaugh's confirmation appeared on October 1, titled "Five-Page 5 Ford is trying to tear her case apart". "Craig Silverman, Craig Silverman notes," and more than 200,000 contracts have been concluded. "Bill Clinton rapist Accan Juanita Broaddrick dismissed the Kavanaugh hearing and gave a number to the Biggest Double Standard." […]

Kavanaugh – Demo's main article on Ford "Matt Damon ruined Kavanaugh and Senate Republicans at the funny SNL Cold Open. Another story about Kavanaugh's confirmation is that "Bernie Sanders has asked Kavanaugh to investigate the five lies that Kavanaugh said at the hearing." [449005] CNN and others surpassed this link, but Just as Facebook has squeezed the amount of news in the news feed, this fight has given life to the hard-liners who are struggling this year, complements the email list and creates new advertising revenue,

On the other hand, the Facebook group is being polarized by a simple name change, Kevin Roose wrote Twitter about the phenomenon earlier this week. One of the big Kavanaugh groups was formerly the "ISIS SUPPORT GROUP" and "WHO FARTED" !!!! "Tony Rom, Washington Post Romm says:

The liquidity of this group shows that the powerful tools of the social networking tycoon for political and community organizations remain a major risk to propagate false information and increase anxiety. With Facebook fighting against illegal activities online, the election in 2018 is only a few weeks away. In his speech in 2017, Groups is committed to the promise of Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, to "strengthen the online community to strengthen the physical community." However, the group owner can rename and re-group the group while retaining the original membership.

Facebook began showing a two-year history of changing the names of all groups to improve transparency last month. "This change not only provides more information and insight into the group, but also enhanced the accountability of the group manager," said Andy Stone, a spokesman. Particularly with the Ford group, Facebook is investigating its recent, whip effect on late Thursday.

Meanwhile, the problem group here is small with less than 10,000 members in between. On the other hand, the effort to promote polarization is evolving with the platform. Easily changing the name of the group made it easier to get general interest groups such as "WHO FARTED" into a conservative base.

I think that a Facebook employee can see these two things. Stories and reactions: This is the biggest story in America right now. Of course, social networks are exploding and of course people are taking sides. But how fast and far, still, the sharp voice of the voyage travels across the platform, and how services for building communities appear as an engine of tribalism.

Smaller stores reduce Facebook promotions and scrap than new ad rules.

Mathew Ingram says some news outlets are reluctant to register as political advertisers and are stopping Facebook ads.

Ultimately, Haussamen says that Facebook does not spend money on promoting content. Though it did not cost $ 70 or $ 80 a month, the NMPolitics publisher said it thought it was an important symbolic move. Ironically, he did not spend money promoting posts, so the engagement on the site's posts actually went up, but the amount of Facebook traffic on his site was stable. "Whatever the intentions of Facebook, from my point of view, Facebook has completely failed." I am getting less money and better participation on their platforms.
