    4. Instagram Played A Much Bigger Role In Russia’s Propaganda Campaign

      Instagram Played A Much Bigger Role In Russia’s Propaganda Campaign

      Testifying alongside Google and Twitter, Facebook was the focus at hearings on Capitol Hill last week, where impatient lawmakers demanded more details about the propaganda war waged on their platforms. Far more Americans had been exposed to Russia-backed propaganda on Facebook and its Instagram app than on any other platform: an estimated 146 million people, or about half of the U.S. population, had seen a Russia-funded post sometime between January 2015 and this past August, the company told Congress. But the number is likely much higher. A new analysis of since-deleted posts from some of the known Russia-linked Instagram ...

      How to help Puerto Rico: 10 things you can do for Hurricane Maria victims right now

      Hurricane Maria, the fifth-strongest storm to ever hit the United States, roared through Puerto Rico last week, flattening the island. The 3.4 million Americans citizens who live there had homes destroyed, streets flooded, power grids decimated, widespread internet outages, and dams teetering on the brink of collapse, leaving Puerto Rico in shambles. The bulk of the island doesn’t have water to drink and can’t even call for help because only 25% of cellphone towers survived the storm.

      My Quarter-Life Career Crisis Didn’t Kill Me—It Taught Me How To Pivot

      Growing up, my girl crushes swung between Judy Blume and Eleanor Roosevelt. I gravitated toward irreverent women who had stories to tell and history to make. Maybe because of this, I felt destined for a career in politics. As a campus activist at Northwestern University, I geeked out to all things political. I volunteered on Chicago congressional campaigns and Bill Clinton’s first presidential run. I even ran as a delegate for the Democratic National Convention in 1992.
