Para Adriano Mendes, advogado especialista em tecnologia e sócio do escritório Assis e Mendes, a reclamação das teles é uma “estratégia comercial” e uma maneira de conseguir “tirar dinheiro do Facebook” –dono do WhatsApp. “Está claro, que o problema é com o Facebook. Até porque contraditoriamente as operadoras atacam o WhastApp, mas de certa forma isentam o Skype, que é da Microsoft”, afirma.
Segundo ele, a polêmica é “misteriosamente” levantada em meio a negociação para a implementação do Internet.org –projeto da rede social que leva serviços da rede gratuitamente a populações carentes– no Brasil, serviço que é oferecido pelas teles.
We agree that some Internet access is better than none, and if that is what Internet.org actually provided—for example, through a uniformly rate-limited or data-capped free service—then it would have our full support. But it doesn’t. Instead, it continues to impose conditions and restraints that not only make it something less than a true Internet service, but also endanger people’s privacy and security.
While we applaud Facebook’s efforts to encourage more websites to provide support for low-end feature phones by stripping out “heavy” content, we would like to see Internet.org try harder to achieve its very worthy objective of connecting the remaining two thirds of the world to the Internet. We have confidence that it would be possible to provide a limited free Internet access service that is secure, and that doesn’t rely on Facebook and its partners to maintain a central list of approved sites. Until then, Internet.org will not be living up to its promise, or its name.
In Steve Jobs’s eras as CEO, Apple reflected his character and qualities. That was thrilling in most ways, because he demanded something close to perfection. But then the underdog revolutionized mobile computing and became the winner—one day we all realized it was one of the planet’s most powerful, profitable and valuable companies. Apple became the kind of company I prefer not to support: control-freakish to a fault with customers, software developers and the press; and, I came to believe, even dangerous to the future of open networks and user-controlled technology.
At the same time, Google and Facebook, among others, were emerging as powers of a different kind: centralized entities that use surveillance as a business model, stripping away our privacy in return for the great convenience they provide. Our mobile devices—and even our PCs, the key tools for tech liberty in earlier decades—increasingly came with restrictions on how we could use them.
Facebook is something we all got in middle school because it was cool but now is seen as an awkward family dinner party we can’t really leave.
There are no links on Instagram, meaning I’m not being constantly spammed by the same advertisement, horrible gossip news article, or Buzzfeed listicle about the “28 Ingenious Things For Your Dog You Had No Idea You Needed”.
Twitter is a place to follow/be followed by a bunch of random strangers, yet still have your identity be attached to it.
Tumblr is a place to follow/be followed by a bunch of random strangers, yet not have your identity be attached to it. Tumblr is like a secret society that everyone is in, but no one talks about. Tumblr is where you are your true self and surround yourself (through who you follow) with people who have similar interests. It’s often seen as a “judgment-free zone” where, due to the lack of identity on the site, you can really be who you want to be.
LinkedIn — We have to get it, so we got it.
Pinterest — It’s mainly female-dominated and is for those who have an artsy/hipster focus. Not too many people talk about it.
O submundo no Twitter, sobre compra e venda de seguidores. A matéria não fala do YouTube, mas também é possível “comprar visualizações” de um vídeo. Pelo menos nestes três serviços o sucesso de um perfil não pode ser medido por estes parâmetros.
Comerciantes do site Fiverr, especializado em ofertas de perfis, oferecem até 32 mil seguidores pelo valor de US$ 5. Ou seja, o preço unitário é de US$ 0,00016 (um centavo de dólar compra 63 perfis). A maioria das páginas com ofertas de “followers” no Fiverr possui comentários positivos dos clientes do site, o que indica que muitos não veem problema em recorrer a esse tipo de medida. Também é comum o oferecimento de “curtidas” numa página institucional (fan page) do Facebook.
Finally, here is a “guaranteed” way to lengthen your life. Childhood holidays seem to last forever, but as you grow older time seems to accelerate. “Time” is related to how much information you are taking in – information stretches time. A child’s day from 9am to 3.30pm is like a 20-hour day for an adult. Children experience many new things every day and time passes slowly, but as people get older they have fewer new experiences and time is less stretched by information. So, you can “lengthen” your life by minimising routine and making sure your life is full of new active experiences – travel to new places, take on new interests, and spend more time living in the present.
