“In the three days I was at Coachella, I only spent a total of 10 hours at the actual festival, where I watched numerous performances and interviewed festivalgoers about their experience with sexual assault and harassment for Teen Vogue. During the 10 hours I was reporting on this story, I was groped 22 times.”

Facebook Container, Publishing Future, Social Media Ethics, and Online Virality

  1. Facebook Container -- Firefox add-on that isolates your Facebook identity from the rest of your web activity. When you install it, you will continue to be able to use Facebook normally. Facebook can continue to deliver their service to you and send you advertising. The difference is that it will be much harder for Facebook to use your activity collected off Facebook to send you ads and other targeted messages.
  2. What's Coming for Online Publishing (Doc Searls) -- What will happen when the Times, the New Yorker, and other pubs own up to the simple fact that they are just as guilty as Facebook of leaking its readers’ data to other parties, for—in many if not most cases—God knows what purposes besides “interest-based” advertising? (via Piers Harding)
  3. Affiliate Marketing Not Disclosed on Social Media (Freedom to Tinker) -- Of all the YouTube videos and Pinterest pins that contained affiliate links, only ~10% and ~7% respectively contained accompanying disclosures. (paper)
  4. The Structural Virality of Online Diffusion -- Indeed, the very label “viral hit” implies precisely the exponential spreading of the sort observed in contagion models in their supercritical regime. It is therefore notable that essentially everything we observe, including the very largest and rarest events, can be accounted for by a simple model operating entirely in the low infectiousness parameter regime.

the new Ask a Manager book…

1 Share

Eeeeek!  I have it in my hand!

If you want it in your hand, pre-order it now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Powell’s, or anywhere books are sold.

Ask a Manager: How to Navigate Clueless Colleagues, Lunch-Stealing Bosses, and the Rest of Your Life at Work is nearly all new content, and I’m so excited about it!

It’ll be published by Random House/Ballantine on May 1, and if you place your pre-order here, you’ll get it as soon as it publishes. (And pre-orders are really good for authors, so please don’t wait if you want it!)

 

the new Ask a Manager book… was originally published by Alison Green on Ask a Manager.

how to ask for a raise

1 Share

If you’re like a lot of people, it’s been quite a while since you’ve asked for a raise – or maybe you’ve never asked. Surprisingly, given how much most of us appreciate money, a ton of people have never asked for a higher salary, because they feel awkward about initiating the conversation, or they’re worried about sounding greedy or entitled, or they’re just not sure how to ask for a raise at all.

But asking for a raise is a very normal part of having a job, and if you avoid doing it out of discomfort, you’re potentially giving up a significant amount of money – just to avoid a conversation that could be as short as five minutes.

At New York Magazine today, I put together a blueprint for asking for a raise. Please use it!
