Niche Specificity is the Key to Future Social Media Action

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA [Publisher-in-Chief]

My solution to Facebook dilution.

It was a no good, very bad week for Facebook.

WHY: It came to light that up to 50 million users had their data improperly accessed by data firm Cambridge Analytica. Ever since, the company has been under incredible scrutiny as its’ stock price is in free fall. In fact, CEO Mark Z. lost about ten billion dollars; at least on paper…Ouch! But, he is still worth about 65 billion dollars, so don’t worry —  be happy for him!

The Critics

  • Did you know that Elon Musk is joining a growing group of people in the tech industry who have taken aim at social media companies and Facebook in particular?
  • Aaron Levie, CEO of cloud computing company Box, recently tweeted: “The days of arguing that (and acting like) tech companies are merely platforms and pipes are behind us.”
  • Marc Benioff, CEO of business software company Salesforce, recently started equating social media to smoking cigarettes.

And now, this Medical Executive-Post is jumping on the alternate social media site bandwagon. Leave Facebook now!

Here’s How to manipulate Facebook instead of it Manipulating You

Social media platforms know a lot about us—but that doesn’t mean we can’t have our own ways of fighting back.

So, try these six tricks to take back control of your digital life. https://tinyurl.com/y888s8m5

Intellectual Riches … thru Niches

As Facebook became ever-more generalized, it also became less powerful, less informed, less important and therefore less credible; writ large. All opinions are not informed opinions

“When you try to be all things to every one – you became nothing to no one”

But smaller, niche alternatives like this Medical Executive-Post can provide new ways for us to interact with other smart, like-minded and informed people online.

Re-Enter the Medical Executive-Post of iMBA, Inc.

My Idea

Join Our Mailing List

For the solution to Facebook dilution, my idea is not new or radical; but it is simple. Join the Medical Executive Post. It is time.

To achieve a better and more niche focused professional social site, we need to be much more concentrated and serious about all vital topics in the healthcare industrial complex – which is an ecosystem projected to become 20% of domestic GDP; very soon.

Thus, this academic niche is not so small; but we are indeed highly educated, powerful and can become very influential and very actionable; more so than the general Facebook populace hoi polloi.

Remember, Pareto’s 80/20 Law and the trivial many versus vital few. Show us your vitality.

  7. Apple CEO denounces Facebook

    Apple CEO Tim Cook said he supports “well-crafted” regulation preventing the misuse of user information in light of revelations that Facebook allowed Cambridge Analytica to gather information on 50 million of its users, Bloomberg reported.

    Speaking at the annual China Development Forum in Beijing, Cook called the situation “dire” and said companies should not be able to know user browsing patterns, relational connections, likes and dislikes and intimate details of a user’s life.

  10. The Facebook CEO appeared before a House committee yesterday.

    And this, his second day of grilling in Washington, DC, was more aggressive than the first

    Backstory: Zuck is answering questions from Congress about Facebook’s huge Cambridge Analytica data scandal. His first day went surprisingly smoothly.

    Highlights: Can’t be bothered to read another transcript? No problem:

    • Zuck admitted that yes, his data was sold to Cambridge Analytica.
    • He said users can download all data held about them. That may be untrue.
    • He insisted, over and over, that users have control of their data. But …
    • Several lawmakers challenged him about tracking of non-Facebook users.
    • Others pointed out that people don’t own inferences made by Facebook.
    • (He didn’t provide any compelling responses to ease their fears.)
    • Zuck refused to say that the firm would provide super-tight privacy by default.
    • And he was lambasted several times for the firm’s opaque terms of service.

    Out on top: Amazingly, Facebook’s share prices have risen over the last two days.
    What next: Over the two hearings, Zuck promised to “follow up” on 43 questions he couldn’t answer there and then. Some of the answers could be hugely revealing.

    Brace for regulation: There’s now clear, significant bipartisan support for placing new rules on how Facebook operates. The big question is, what will they look like?

    Light Zuck relief: Mark said “senator” so many times it began to seem absurd. He was, awkwardly, reminded of his 2003 site Facemash. And he talked about muffins.

    In case you haven’t heard by now, there’s been another huge Facebook data leak, encompassing personal information from more than 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries.

    This data was posted in a hacking forum, according to a report from Insider, which is to say — if you have a Facebook account, there’s a good chance your data has once again been exposed to hackers including everything from your phone number to your email address, birthday, full name, and more.

  19. The VERGE?

    Facebook is planning to rebrand the company with a new name, The Verge reported Tuesday. The name change aims to recast Facebook as focused on building a “metaverse.” Facebook could unveil the new name within the week, according to The Verge.

  20. DEFACE Facebook

    How’s this for meta: Facebook is shutting down its facial-recognition program…but its newly rebranded parent company may not be.

    On Tuesday, the tech giant announced that in the coming weeks, it will shutter the use of facial-recognition tech (FRT) on Facebook, deleting more than 1 billion “individual facial recognition templates” and discontinuing automatic recognition of users in photos and videos.

    But, but, but: Meta can’t say the same. Though privacy advocates have celebrated the announcement as a step in the right direction after years of controversy over FRT’s potential harms, Meta has left the door open to the use of FRT more broadly.

    The company’s blog post is careful to repeat, for instance, that it’s ending use of its face-recognition system on Facebook—but it’s already experimenting with biometrics in its metaverse products.

    And although Facebook spun its decision as a societal one, the announcement follows years of fighting tooth-and-nail, in and out of court, for its use of FRT.

    In 2020, Facebook settled a class-action lawsuit for $650 million in Illinois that alleged the company violated state legislation—specifically, a law prohibiting the use of Illinois residents’ biometric information without their consent. And in 2019, Facebook’s FRT was cited in its $5 billion FTC settlement. In the years before that, Facebook used an “NRA approach” to help prevent FRT laws on the state level, one source told Slate in 2017.

    In other words...Though Meta’s blog post said the company needs to “weigh the positive use cases for facial recognition against growing societal concerns, especially as regulators have yet to provide clear rules,” it’s possible that lawsuits, fines, and bad press might be its chief concerns.
