Facebook, facing mounting criticism over its ability to stymie the spread of extremism and misinformation on its platforms, has announced it is to prioritise original news and reporting in the news feed.

The social network will now begin identifying original reporting on a developing story or topic by finding the most often-cited original source within a group of articles. The identified original story will rank higher in the news feed than other news articles.

“When we ask people what kind of news they want to see on Facebook, they continually tell us they want news stories that are credible and informative. Today, we’re updating the way news stories are ranked in News Feed to prioritize original reporting and stories with transparent authorship. These signals are based on user research and were built with feedback from news publishers and academic experts. They will only apply to news content.”

Original News Content 

Original reporting plays an important role in informing people around the world, from breaking a news story to creating an in-depth investigative report, uncovering new facts and data, sharing critical updates in times of crisis, or broadcasting eyewitness reports. This important journalism takes time and expertise, and we want to ensure that it’s prioritized on Facebook.

“We will now prioritize articles in News Feed that we identify as original reporting on a developing story or topic. We do this by looking at groups of articles on a particular story topic and identifying the ones most often cited as the original source. We’ll start by identifying original reporting in English language news and will do the same for news in other languages in the future. “

Most of the news stories people see in News Feed are from sources they or their friends follow, and that won’t change. When multiple stories are shared by publishers and are available in a person’s News Feed, we will boost the more original one which will help it get more distribution. Defining original reporting and the standards for it are complex, so we will continue to work with publishers and academics to refine this approach over time.

Transparent Authorship

“We are also starting to demote news content that does not have transparent information about the publisher’s editorial staff. We will review news articles for bylines or a staff page on the publisher’s website that lists the first and last names of reporters or other editorial staff. We’ve found that publishers who do not include this information often lack credibility to readers and produce content with clickbait or ad farms, all content people tell us they don’t want to see on Facebook.”

Editorial transparency is a professional standard supported by organizations like the Trust Project, SOS Support Public Broadcasting Coalition, Global Forum for Media Development, and Reporters Without Borders’ Journalism Trust Initiative. We consulted with these organizations, in addition to more than 20 other global media experts, to develop these standards. We recognize that in some areas, transparency can put journalists at risk so we are only doing this in limited markets to start, taking into account the press environment in which publishers operate.

How Will These Changes Impact Publishers’ Content?

Original news and reporting may see an increase in distribution as a result of these changes, but it’s important to remember that News Feed uses a variety of ranking signals to prioritize content. You can learn more about how we rank publisher content in News Feed here. We anticipate most news publishers won’t see significant changes to their distribution in News Feed as a result of these updates.

Dachser increases capacity of its air network for 2021

HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 27 January 2021 - Starting in mid-January, logistics service provider Dachser continues its weekly air charter from Hong Kong to Frankfurt. This route will now become a year-round service providing shippers with a reliable transport solution.


 Facebook Tweaks Algorithm To Prioritise 'Original News' - Brand Spur

Dachser provides dedicated capacity with its own air freight network 


"At the end of last year, the effect of increased e-commerce became especially evident in the load factors and intensified the shortfall in capacity," says Timo Stroh, Head of Global Air Freight at Dachser.


"And we'll see this happen again with the usual increase in freight volumes in the run-up to the Chinese New Year in February. Our dedicated own Dachser air network capacity provides our customers with security and makes us less vulnerable to the fallout from volatile market events."


Apart from the Hong Kong-to-Frankfurt connection, the company also offers the same charter service for the Frankfurt-to-Chicago route and return.


By establishing its own network with dedicated capacity last year, it created security and stability for its customers on the most important freight routes between Europe, Asia, and the US.


When the pandemic left a large proportion of passenger aircraft grounded, transporting freight as additional loads on these aircraft was no longer an option, which had an impact on global air freight capacity. The air freight sector is still feeling the effects of this capacity shortage.


Interlocking air and overland transport

By developing its air network capacity, Dachser is responding to market demand. The program's fixed transit times make the service reliable and enable customers to plan ahead. Combining its Road Logistics and Air & Sea Logistics networks allows Dachser to respond quickly to changing route situations in Europe and accelerate the pickup and delivery processes.


"With this global network capability, we can offer our customers a robust and reliable capacity solution," Stroh says.


An expansion of the Dachser air network is planned for the second quarter, so the logistics service provider will be well prepared to handle the uncertain market environment in 2021.


About Dachser

Headquartered in Germany, Dachser is one of the world's leading logistics providers. Using its own in-house developed IT-systems, Dachser incorporates transport, warehousing, and value-added services to provide comprehensive supply chain solutions. Thanks to some 31,000 employees based in 393 locations all over the globe, Dachser generated a consolidated net revenue of approximately EUR 5.7 billion in 2019. The same year, the logistics provider handled a total of 80.6 million shipments weighing 41.0 million metric tons. Country organizations represent Dachser in 44 countries.


In Asia, Dachser employs more than 1,696 people in 48 locations in 12 Business Areas. Its Asia Pacific Regional Head Office is located in Hong Kong.

Blessing Lanterns celebrate the new year of the Ox


LTA wishes the Lunar New Year will be a good start to the year. To welcome the year of the Ox with happiness and auspice, the world's 1st AI butterfly light and shadow art installation last Christmas will be recreated to celebrate Lunar New Year with you! The use of AI innovates the installation with festive music and lightings. There will also be traditional Chinese red lanterns hanging on the entire boulevard, which adds harmony, auspice and blessings to the whole installation.

 

According to William Chan -- the Centre General Manager of Lee Tung Avenue Management Company Limited, it normally takes a great deal of time to innovate such a large-scale installation. However, thanks to the integration of AI technology, Butterflies of Hope can shift in a short time from a pure Western-style winter atmosphere to a decoration full of both Chinese festivity and Western aesthetics. Better yet, the innovation at the same time reduces waste, in line with the concept of eco-friendly upcycling.

 

A blend of Hope & Harmony, and Chinese & Western styles

Wish everyone a desired and auspicious new year


The new "Butterflies of Hope.Blessing Lanterns" is created by Victor Wong, a local visual effects director and 2019 MARTELL Artist of the Year. Just as butterflies are a living embodiment of hope, lanterns are a symbol of harmony and auspice. Blending Chinese and Western styles is not simply adding traditional Chinese lanterns. The shape and lines of the butterflies are also designed to imitate some traditional Chinese auspicious patterns, which merges Chinese and Western aesthetics in a more sophisticated fashion. Coupled with AI-powered lighting and music that match the festive ambience, such as the constant change of butterfly shapes, the installation transforms LTA into an urban village of Lunar New Year joys. The use of Art Tech must bring everyone a new surprise. It is definitely the perfect place for families to check in at the Lunar New Year!

 

World's first AI butterfly light art installation,

Art Tech shines a ray of hope to our brighter future


With the advance of technology, the integration of art and technology innovation sets the new trend of art development -- Art Tech. "Butterflies of Hope.Blessing Lanterns"  is a case in point. Victor takes butterfly as the theme, symbolizing beauty, love, hope, positivity, happiness, and revival. The installation features a 7-meter stained glass butterfly and over 350 little illusion glass butterflies shattering holiday cheer all over the atrium and boulevard. Victor and LTA hope that by the butterfly's uniqueness, viewers can feel the regeneration and vitality of life and face the future hopefully and positively. May everyone have a happy Lunar New Year with positive vibes!


Frog King celebrates Lunar New Year with you at Art Market

 

Alongside the hopeful and auspicious "Butterflies of Hope .Blessing Lanterns" brought by Victor, there will be "Frog King" -- Kwok Man Ho, "kiwisual" the art stones and a group of artists writing spring couplets (Fai Chun) for everyone to bring happiness and blessings back home on 30-31 January. Frog King has engaged in painting, sculpture, installation, conceptual, improvisation, performance art, and other creations in more than 3,000 activities during his 40-year-long artistic career. Every time he shows up, he brings vocal objects, glasses, a rope, and bamboo, all of which are his instrument to get along and have fun with everyone. Besides Fai Chun, several of Kwok's original artworks will be displayed on site. The event is also co-hosted with 1-art Foundation to raise funds through a charity sale, including some kiwisual and limited edition masks designed by Frog King. As well, some Fai Chun will be given away to visitors for free, hoping to spread happiness extensively to more people.

 

In 2011, Frog King represented Hong Kong to participate in the "54th Venice Art Biennale" in Italy. His solo exhibition "Frogtopia Hongkornucopia" was a big hit. His elaborate and constantly growing artwork dominated the entire exhibition hall, attracting 70,000 visitors and successfully entering the mainstream. His artwork has also been displayed at 2018 Art Basel.

Kids Butterfly-themed Art Space

 

LTA is teaming up with the local young artist Josh Tang and the child art education Center "Colourful Kids" to organize a butterfly-inspired child art space. Josh lived in the UK for 20 years and graduated from the University of Kingston and the University of Reading. He is currently working as an art instructor at Colourful Kids, at which students are creating multiple handmade artworks with a butterfly theme. Their artworks will pour vibrancy and creativity all over the boulevard. Further, some of their artworks will be selected and sold online for charity (https://bit.ly/3g0xxqE), with part of the proceeds being a charitable donation to "Soap Cycling". Josh even created a butterfly art painting named "FLY" for LTA. Displayed on the basement floor at Exit D of Wan Chai MTR station, the painting shows the transformation of the butterfly and its hopeful and vigorous form. The rich use of colors allows viewers to feel positive and joyful hope.

 

Soap Cycling DIY -- Spreading the fun of Eco-Friendliness

 

LTA shows full support to the Asian first soap recycling charity "Soap Cycling" in the festive event. This time Soap Cycling will make unique butterfly-themed soaps for charity sales. A series of recycled materials will be exhibited at the same time. Meanwhile, local artist Agnes Pang is specially invited for decoration design and conception. Agnes advocates the idea of "taking what others discard" and excels in making good use of life resources, turning the "garbage" in people's eyes into useful materials for creations. Based on the symbol of beauty and happiness -- "butterflies", Agnes has made flowers with round plastic bottles and fruit wrapping nets. She meticulously transforms ordinary butterflies into flying "flower butterflies", so as to bring joy, creativity, and positive energy to everyone. Wish everyone shine and enjoy life even in adversity. Besides, DIY kits will go to the charity sale on weekends, with the series of soaps limited to Lunar New Year only! Hopefully, the promotion of environmental protection will make this new year more lovely and meaningful.

Mr. Khuong Sreng, municipal governor of Phnom Penh. "We hope it will attract local and international tourists to the city and increase Phnom Penh's attractiveness as an investment destination in Cambodia."
