It described its daily user count amid a continuing effort to attract more advertisers to its platform, which most marketers consider experimental. But Reddit said growth in the ranks of its users has coincided with growth in its advertising business. The company’s ad revenue totaled more than $100 million in 2019 and is on track to rise by more than 70% this year, according to Ms. Wong. “More advertisers want the expanded and standard inventory than the limited inventory, despite how important brand safety is,” Ms. Wong said. Ms. Wong said Reddit’s future revenue growth will come partly by expanding the company’s ad business to new international markets.

Social Media’s Liability Shield Is Under Assault

WASHINGTON—The law that enabled the rise of social media and other internet businesses is facing threats unlike anything in its 24-year history, with potentially significant consequences for websites that host user content. Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act was instrumental to the success of Silicon Valley tech giants such as Facebook Inc., Twitter Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google and YouTube by giving them broad immunity for the content they publish from users on their sites.

YouTube bans One America News Network from posting new videos for a week

REUTERS/Dado Ruvic/Illustration(Reuters) - YouTube said on Tuesday it had barred the right-wing outlet One America News Network from posting new videos for a week after it broke the site’s rules against content that claims there is a guaranteed cure for COVID-19. President Donald Trump has promoted OAN, calling it a “great alternative” to Fox News in a tweet this month. YouTube said it has a “three-strikes policy” before an account is removed and this constituted OAN’s first strike. YouTube and other major online platforms are under scrutiny from lawmakers and researchers to curb misinformation on their sites. Following the November election, Reuters identified several YouTube channels making money from ads and memberships that were amplifying debunked accusations about voting fraud.

REUTERS/Tom Brenner(Reuters) - Twitter Inc and Facebook Inc will transfer control of the @POTUS account to the Joe Biden administration on Jan. 20, the social media companies said on Saturday. The @POTUS account on both platforms is the official account of the President of the United States. It is separate from the @realDonaldTrump Twitter account and the @DonaldTrump Facebook page that U.S. President Donald Trump mostly uses to write his posts. “Twitter is actively preparing to support the transition of White House institutional Twitter accounts on January 20th, 2021. Politico reported earlier that the handover of the @POTUS Twitter handle requires no sharing of information between the outgoing Trump team and incoming Biden team.

Companies eyeing the polarized election and its aftermath may be tempted to back away from supporting hot-button social issues. The heightened threat of backlash hasn’t stopped some from doubling down on commitments to the social causes of their choice. “The intention of our social media post, that featured a red and blue hoodie, was to show the power of unity. In 2019, the Business Roundtable, a trade group of the nation’s largest companies, said it was changing its statement on the purpose of companies. Companies need someone who can gather information about different stakeholders and strategically manage the reputational risks associated with each, Mr. Kossovsky said.

WASHINGTON—The chief executives of Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. told lawmakers they did better in fending off election interference in 2020, while acknowledging mistakes and signaling an openness to more regulation. The tough tone of questions from both parties at a congressional hearing Tuesday suggested that social-media giants face higher risks of new regulation in the next Congress that begins in January.
Persons: WASHINGTON — Organizations: Facebook Inc, Twitter Inc
The 2020 election spurred social-media giants to adopt aggressive changes to how they police political discourse. Now the questions are whether that new approach will last and whether it should. During the course of the contentious U.S. presidential campaign, and its messy denouement, Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. have taken steps that would have been unthinkable four years ago. They have applied fact-checking labels to posts from the U.S. president, deleted entire online communities and hobbled some functions of their own...

To answer that question, Reuters examined five key areas, and assigned each an informal grade based on interviews with two election integrity experts, and our own reporting over the course of the election. As of Monday, Biden led Trump by more than 4.4 million votes with more than 147 million ballots counted. Nearly 159 million Americans were estimated to have voted in the election, according to an analysis by University of Florida professor Michael McDonald. The previous record was set in 2016 when 138 million people voted in the election won by Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton. More than 95 million of those who voted this year cast their ballots before Election Day, McDonald estimated.

(Reuters) - Spanish-language misinformation flourished online in the days surrounding the U.S. election, even as social media companies moved to stem falsehoods that could affect the vote or spark violence. Social media companies introduced new rules to crack down on election-related misinformation through labeling content, restricting its reach or removing it, but enforcement has been uneven. Lisa Zayas, a progressive organizer in Florida, provided Reuters with examples of Spanish-language misinformation spread through multiple WhatsApp channels used in her local community. Avaaz, a global civic organization, said on Thursday it found at least 43 Spanish-language posts across social media promoting false narratives about the election. YouTube removed two videos containing Spanish-langauge election misinformation that had racked up thousands of views after Reuters flagged them to a spokesperson, who said the company’s policies applied “consistently across all languages and regions.”

OAKLAND, Calif. (Reuters) - At least nine popular YouTube channels were promoting on Thursday debunked accusations about voting fraud in the U.S. presidential race, conspiratorial content that could jeopardize advertising and memberships revenue they get from the video service. FILE PHOTO: A 3D-printed YouTube icon is seen in front of a displayed YouTube logo in this illustration taken October 25, 2017. Claiming voter fraud is widespread or that mail-in ballots cannot be trusted would be in violation, but highlighting people who say they experienced voter fraud or making hyperbolic statements about a political party “stealing” the election would not, Google said. Among the claims cited was that wagons, suitcases and coolers were used to smuggle ballots into a counting center. Some popular YouTube channels, which run ads and sell memberships, have generated hundreds of thousands of views on videos rebutting Trump supporters’ claims of voter fraud.

Is Big Tech invincible? The numbers released Thursday afternoon tell a complicated story. For the second time in three months, Apple Inc., Amazon.com Inc., Facebook Inc. and Google parent Alphabet Inc. reported results the same afternoon. Much smaller but highly influential Twitter Inc. joined the crowd Thursday with its own report. The numbers were predictably huge, and largely ahead of what analysts were expecting to see.
