 Facebook Developers Conference: from black to small, not to buy developers


Text: spectrum, VickyXiao editor: VickyXiao In May 1st, the FacebookF8 global developers conference was held in San Jose, Silicon Valley. It doesnt seem to change together. The loud, smiling Zuckerberg on the stage is still wearing the classic costumes since the F8 developer conference in 2015 - a gray T-shirt and jeans, like the former Geek. But everyone knows its different. He is no longer simply a young and promising technology leader. In some peoples eyes, he has become an evil dictator who uses user privacy to build a business empire. At this time of the year, Zuckerberg was able to talk to the huge ring-shaped screen in front of the well prepared F8 and the movie speed and passion 8, but this year, it would only start with a really thrilling year! Such a half joke comes from the black opening. The first time he wore a short sleeved shirt, he first changed to a long sleeved T - shirt and looked a little thinner. It could only get rid of the heavy atmosphere, dispel the doubts of the developers, and watch the live people - media, Faceboo K users, supervisors, and so on. Everyone is watching, after the trust crisis, how Zuckerberg will come to the public to balance the energy sources of Facebook, the interests of the developer, and its life foundation, the user. And to regain trust in him and this social empire. Dilemma: developers or users Many details indicate that this is not an ordinary developer conference. It was still a keynote speech at 10 punctuality, but compared to the crowds at the F8 conference at about 9:30 in previous years, the crowd had to be diverted to the next dowing. This year, after the start of the speech, there were still sporadic seats in the second half of the meeting, and the late people came in. Find a seat. The applause and cheers ringing in the course of the speech were also concentrated in the first few rows. The crowd behind, with a few laughter and applause when he announced Facebooks online dating function and free VR suits, was most of the time. Everything is silent about the fact that Facebook has not completely recovered from the crisis, and the annual event is still showing a lot of worry and doubt. At the same time, in this F8, Zuckerberg also needs to make Facebook community building, close to human relations mission to speak, to those who have been damaged in the interests of many events. Perhaps because of this, Zuckerberg had to show extra confidence when he was on the stage. When he came to power, he shouted with a big smile. What a thrilling year! I cant believe weve just passed it for four months! It seems that everything that happened in the past two months is just a difficult hurdle in the game, and he has been successful in breaking through. The developers under the platform report with laughter and applause. They understand Zuckerbergs mood and logic of thinking, after all, they are different links in the same interest chain. Facebook gives the data, and they can make money. If Facebook is hit by privacy laws, they will suffer as well. Facebook was once a paradise for developers. Loose developer policy, free calling interface and easy access to data, huge user groups... But now, in order to cope with the crisis, Facebook has to go to another extreme: not only temporarily stop the application review of the third party, but also start to tighten up the policy of collecting and using the users data, which is no less than a big blow to many developers. At the F8 conference, in the face of thousands of developers, Xiao Zai also had to bring some good news - announcing the application review that was temporarily closed for the CambridgeAnalytica event and opening up to all the developers. In the face of the public, Zuckerberg also expressed his willingness to believe him once again. To this end, he introduced the strict data protection mechanism that Facebook has been using in the past years, and through live broadcast, We should have a broader understanding of our responsibilities. It is not enough to build powerful tools. We need to make sure that tools are used to improve the world. Answer questions: a detailed introduction to the response At the conference, Zuckerberg also acknowledged that Facebook initially envisaged the tools used to create and maintain the community and promote the circulation of information. It was actually used to cause harm, such as Russias intervention in elections, false news and hate speech, and data privacy, which are a real problem on the current Facebook platform. Zuckerberg pointed out that in the last two months, Facebook has been fighting against the evil forces on the platform and trying to solve these problems. When the CambridgeAnalytica scandal broke out, and when he went to Capitol Hill last month to inquiries, Zuckerberg gave a brief introduction to measures to combat electoral intervention and false news, but did not deal with specific details. Today, he has described the concrete contents of these measures in depth. For example, in protecting the credibility of the election, he said before that, the company had the ability to combat fishing, hacking and malware, but never expected that the intervention in the election had evolved into organized information manipulation, such as a large number of false accounts. Now, using AI technology, Facebook has been able to crack down on such malicious behavior and ban tens of thousands of false accounts and illegal pages. In his speech, Zuckerberg pointed out that from June this year, Facebook will force political electoral advertisers to submit information on government registration for the record. And against false news, Facebook developed machine learning tools to crack down on false accounts. As for the goal of hiring 20000 full-time employees for safety information verification, Zuckerberg is expected to arrive in October this year. As for the protection of user data privacy, Facebook has and will limit developers ability to get more dimensional data this year. At the same time, the company will also hire third party agencies to audit the developers with a large number of user data. Once the violations are found, they are immediately banned and informed of the affected users. Facebook will also launch a new set or button to clear the users off-Facebookactivities at one button, such as a click link to the activity record of a site outside the station, just as the browser can remove the browse records as well as the Cookies. Facebook will take the initiative to remind users to check data authorization frequently. Not only that, Zuckerberg also revealed that Facebook will require developers worldwide in accordance with the European general data privacy regulation (GDPR) rules. However, he did not mention whether Facebook would comply with GDPR globally. It sounds like Facebook has been more severe to developers overnight, which may make developers panic and reduce their enthusiasm for developing Facebook platforms. Zuckerberg told the developers, I know that most of you are doing well, but we must be strict in order to ensure that everyone does good deeds. I believe these protective measures will give developers more power in the long run. Wired magazine interviewed Zuckerberg on the central idea of the speech before F8, and the answer was rebuilding trust - the trust of the users, and the trust of the developers: to meet the fans love for the cool black technology and to meet the expectations of the developers on the continuous development of Facebook. There are indeed thorny problems to be solved, but we should be optimistic about the future. Zuckerberg told the developer here. Translate the meaning of the sentence. Dont worry, business as usual. Developers have been mixed about Facebooks moves. One developer told the silicon Star: I dont like Facebooks actions. It seems that every day there are new policies and regulations, and one is stricter than one. In fact, Facebook should not treat all developers as CA. It is no good for Facebook to tie a rope to the developer. Another developer said that the previous Facebook policy was so relaxed to be too relaxed, so they would let friends and relatives pay attention to not sharing too much information, although the policy adjustment also affected their companys APP, but at least this is the right thing, and what should be done earlier. The glitzy glass house, the dazzling LED screen, the open display frame, made F8 look dazzling as always, but in fact, its a lot less than last year, both in scale and surprise. One of the major events of the past year was that artificial intelligence had not been reflected in the theme speech, and the solar aircraft, satellite and so on, which represented Facebook black technology in previous years, had not been shown this year. Even on behalf of Facebooks Oculus, this years theme is the delivery of $199s single VR device OculusGo. 1.5 hours of theme speech, mainly new features, product features, no word of the word black technology, Facebook unprecedented ground gas - the biggest bright spot, has become the upcoming dating function. But after all, F8 is Facebooks annual biggest public event / conference, a two - hour keynote that covers the new products of each product line, as well as important new functions in each module: Core product: Facebook 1. date function In fact, when Facebook was just set up, some of the companys founders and engineers thought it was a social platform with a rapid growth of users, and what did the college students do? Must be an appointment to make friends... The appointment is closed by default, and the user chooses to open it. After joining, it will not be displayed in the users data, only the user can see the date function, and the other people see single state; the dating function does not recommend friends; the user can sign up for public activities, see the same participation and open the contract. A functional stranger, and then a chat. 2.Stories third party integration In the past, Stories (short video story, at the top of Facebook and Instagram front page) could only record or upload pictures and videos manually. And third party API allows users to send the music that is being heard in other App, or the video taken by the GoPro, and send it to Stories by the default sharing menu of iOS or Android. The generated short video can be deep linked (deeplink) to the App of the content source. This function supports Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp, which have four Stories applications, and the third party App adaptable is as follows. Note that there are TopBuzz, jitter (head banner) and Mito Oh: 3.WatchParty+LiveCommentate Just now, this function allows users and groups or friends to watch a video or live broadcast, just like a chat room. By using LiveCommentate function, users who are similar to group roles can add voice to video in real time. 4. more functions based on local alerts Instagram 1. camera special effect development ability Instagram opens the custom development capability of camera effects for all developers. In the past, net red and brand can develop stickers themselves, and now they can also do camera effects. 2.? Video group chat Instagram originally has live broadcast function InstagramLive.
