Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg pointed to the success of rivals like Apple, Google, and TikTok as evidence that there's plenty of competition in the tech industry. Zuckerberg referenced Apple's iMessage, Google's YouTube, and the popular video app TikTok in his opening remarks, pointing to their size and dominance in various industries. During the hearing, lawmakers grilled Zuckerberg about Facebook's acquisition of Instagram. While Zuckerberg framed big tech companies as its main competition, questions have also been raised about whether Facebook is also competing with news outlets as more people are turning to social media for news. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg began Wednesday's unprecedented antitrust hearing by pointing to the success of rivals like Apple, Google, and TikTok as part of an argument that competition is alive and well in the tech industry. "The most popular messaging service in the US is iMessage," Zuckerberg said in his opening remarks, referring to Apple's texting service. "The fastest-growing app is TikTok. The most popular app for video is YouTube. The fastest growing ads platform is Amazon. The largest ads platform is Google. And for every dollar spent on advertising in the US, less than 10 cents is spent with us." Zuckerberg appeared alongside Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai to testify before Congress as part of an investigation into whether these large tech platforms are engaging in anticompetitive practices.  The remarks from Zuckerberg pointing to the success of other large tech companies come as the social media giant is scrutinized for its acquisitions of other social apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, and Giphy.  During the hearing, Rep. Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, pressed Zuckerberg about Facebook's acquisition of Instagram back in 2012 — citing emails published by The Verge of Facebook leadership saying that the acquisition could serve to neutralize a competitor. Zuckerberg is also framing large tech firms like Apple and Google as its main competition as questions have risen about whether its reach and distribution make it a rival to smaller news organizations as well. Facebook executives have repeatedly indicated that it does not see itself as the "arbiter of truth." But at the same time, Facebook lawyers argued in court in 2018 that the company's decisions about content should be treated like that of a traditional publisher. It has also added new features in recent years that put it in more direct competition with news publishers, and a Pew Research study found that four in 10 US adults get their news from Facebook. Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why Pikes Peak is the most dangerous racetrack in America
TikTok star Dixie D'Amelio recently released her first single, "Be Happy."  The song was released under a new family-owned label, DAM FAM Recordings, and reached over 1 million Spotify streams within its first weekend. With millions of followers across many social-media platforms, D'Amelio and her family are a powerhouse in the influencer industry. Her sister Charli is TikTok's most followed creator with 73 million followers, and their parents Heidi and Marc also have large followings online.  Business Insider spoke with the family's comanagers about developing a song with Dixie and their plans to work with more talent on music going forward.  Subscribe to Business Insider's influencer newsletter: Influencer Dashboard. TikTok star Dixie D'Amelio and her internet-famous family aren't betting on an established record label for her introduction into the music industry. Instead, they are counting on the massive fanbase their family has built across social media.  At the end of June, Dixie released her first single titled "Be Happy" under her family-owned label, DAM FAM Recordings. The song reached over 1 million Spotify streams within its first weekend and at the beginning of July, Dixie made Billboard's list of Emerging Artists.  She first teased to the song on TikTok in June, singing an a capella rendition of it for her 30 million TikTok followers. The music video, which was released on July 1, has 52 million views on YouTube.  With millions of followers across many social-media platforms, Dixie and her family are a powerhouse in the influencer industry. Her sister Charli is TikTok's most followed creator with 73 million followers (that number will have likely changed by the time you read this), and their parents Heidi and Marc also have large followings online.  Outside of TikTok, the sisters have landed traditional Hollywood roles (Charli is the voice of a character in a new animated film), spent time with celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, and are the face of new product collabs with companies like Hollister and Morphe Cosmetics.  To make it all happen, the D'Amelios are comanaged by the firms Outshine Talent and Manncom Creative Partners, and represented by United Talent Agency for larger business ventures, like going on tour, or a possible reality TV show which the family has teased recently.  Barbara Jones, who is the founder of Outshine Talent, and Billy Mann, the founder of Manncom Creative Partners, weren't initially brought on to help the family with music projects. But as they discovered Dixie's interest and talent, they were able to create a plan using the deep knowledge of the industry they shared from past experiences working at top record labels.  For Dixie, the launch of her new song is the start of a larger strategy, Jones said. It will rely on the family's celebrity-level team and the massive distribution funnel the D'Amelios have built across TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube, rather than a traditional record label. Business Insider spoke with Jones and Mann about developing the song and their plans to work with more talent on music going forward.  Inside developing the song  The idea to work with Dixie on a song came after her dad Marc shared a video of her singing at a school event with Mann and Jones late last year. "We have to remember, a year ago Dixie was in school and the parents were carpooling to dance class," Mann said. "She can really sing and has her own style and her own manner of singing which is a lot harder to come by. There's a distinct character to her voice." The song was recorded in Mann's private home studio earlier this spring, he said.  Mann said he sent Dixie dozens of songs to look over and they would spend hours talking about them over FaceTime. She eventually choose "Be Happy," which was produced by Christian Medice (who has worked with Halsey) and was cowritten by Medice, Samantha DeRosa, Joe Kirkland, and Mann. "When she heard 'Be Happy,' it really resonated with her and I think it resonated with her because sometimes being happy is not easy, especially with the way the world is now," Mann said.  "It felt like Dixie," Jones added. "This was a good song for her style and her range. There's nothing wishy-washy about Dixie."  Days before the song was released, Mann told the family that given her audience online, and the fact that she was a brand new artist, Dixie could expect between 100,000 and 250,000 streams within the first week.  But like most everything the family does online, the song was instantly trending and received widespread interest across many social-media platforms.  How the team behind Dixie's music came together  Both Mann and Jones have worked for a variety of record companies over the years. In 2007, Jones was the head of marketing for Columbia Records in New York, and she later started her own influencer-marketing agency. She shifted her business to talent management after meeting and signing the D'Amelios as talent.  Mann has been writing and producing for over 25 years, has worked with artists like P!nk, and has cowritten songs nominated for a Grammy. He met Jones over a decade ago while they were both working at Columbia Records, and Jones reached out to him last year looking to see if he would be interested in managing the family together.  The D'Amelios are also represented by UTA agents Greg Goodfried and Ali Berman, who cohead the digital talent department, and music agent David Klein, who also played a role in the song development. Since working with the family, Jones and Mann have constantly scoured social-media for new talent, and they are "always texting each other links to potential talent," Mann said. They want to continue to work with digital clients who sing and dance on new projects.  "We aren't interested in one lane," Jones said. "We are looking for people who want a well-rounded career."SEE ALSO: Inside UTA's deal with TikTok star Charli D'Amelio and how the talent agency plans to expand her influencer business Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: What it's like inside North Korea's controversial restaurant chain
Asus Asus’ new ROG Phone 3 aims to be the pinnacle of smartphones if you’re serious about gaming and having the fastest specs. The device features a 6.59-inch OLED HDR color-calibrated screen that has a fast 144Hz refresh rate with a 1ms response time. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset with 5G support, and it can be configured with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 ROM storage.

And that can be terrifying.Car accidents are the number-one cause of death among teens in the U.S., so when it comes to driving, the majority of parental fears are warranted.The experts at Trico Products are committed to making teen driving safer and encouraging parents to have a sit-down discussion with their children before they start driving.To help make that conversation a little easier to navigate, TRICO has provided a road map of important points:• Seatbelt – Teenagers are more likely to shuffle through their iPod in search of a suitable playlist before they think about putting on their seatbelt.Be clear that fastening your seatbelt should be the very first thing you do before keys are even in the ignition.• Texting – There are enough distractions outside of the vehicle, so explain the importance of paying strict attention to the road at all times.Every second a teen takes their eyes of the road could be an opportunity for a terrible accident.• Drinking and driving – Make it known that no one under the age of 21 should be drinking.Make sure they understand it’s never too late to call for a ride home.• Defensive driving – New drivers should be hyper-sensitive to all surroundings, since they’re still developing basic skills and habits.Teach teenagers to watch out for other drivers and be aware of their reactions to avoid collisions.• Penalties – Discuss the fines associated with tickets, share a personal experience you had getting a ticket and sitting in traffic court.
In the age of Instagram, “self-care” has become synonymous with indulgences that cost money. That all sounds great if you have tons of disposable income. But for most of us, spending serious cash on self-care just isn’t realistic. “The whole concept of self-care has really strayed from the original intent, and become a meme unto itself,” said Kathleen Dahlen deVos, a psychotherapist in San Francisco. “When I talk with my clients about self-care, rarely am I encouraging practices and habits that cost money. In fact, spending excessive money or funds we don’t have In the name of ‘self-care’ can actually be distressing, destructive and work against our mental and emotional wellbeing.”We asked experts in the wellness space to share some of the best ways to practice self-care that are basically free. Here’s what they told us:  1. Spend some time outside.Take a walk around the block, sit in the grass, hike a local trail or just let the sun shine on your face for a few minutes. “No matter where you live, you likely have access to an outside space,” said Tiffany Lester, an integrative medicine doctor in San Francisco. “If it’s not in your neighbourhood, think of a close space you can get to within 10 to 30 minutes. Getting outside and away from our devices calms our nervous system from the negative effects of everyday stressors.”2. Clean and organise your living space. When your apartment or office is a mess, it can take a toll on your mental state, making you feel more stressed, anxious and overwhelmed. “For some, a messy or disorganised space can activate their nervous systems and impact mental health wellness,” said therapist Jesse Kahn, director of The Gender & Sexuality Therapy Center in New York. “If that’s you, taking time to clean up your space can be an act of self-care and self-love, and may feel healing rather than like a chore you don’t want to do.” 3. Reduce the amount of time you spend on social media.Mindlessly scrolling through your social media feeds for hours on end is not only a time suck, but is also linked to lower self-esteem, sleep issues and an increased “fear of missing out,” or FOMO. “Social media and the internet is a great resource to connect, cultivate support and community, but it can also be a place of overconsumption, distraction, and numbing out to what we truly may need in our lives,” said McKel Hill Kooienga, a registered dietitian in Nashville, Tennessee, and founder of the site Nutrition Stripped.The iPhone’s “Screen Time” feature, Android’s “Digital Wellbeing” tools or apps like Moment can monitor your social media usage and help you cut back. Other tricks that may be useful include disabling certain push notifications, switching to grayscale mode or hiding your most enticing apps in a folder that’s not on your home screen.  4. Do some journalling. All you need is a pen and some paper to get started. Journaling can be a therapeutic practice that helps you understand thought patterns, work through difficult emotions, reflect on certain events or cultivate more gratitude in your everyday life. “Sometimes I find it just as helpful as therapy — and I’m very pro-therapy; I’m studying to be a therapist,” said Lauren Donelson, a writer and yoga teacher based in Seattle. “Journaling helps us externalise what’s going on inside our heads, and it helps us to look at our thoughts more objectively.”5. Get better sleep. Making an effort to get the recommended seven to nine hours of quality shuteye can make a huge difference when it comes to your overall wellbeing. Getting a good night’s sleep on a consistent basis offers benefits such as better immune function, improved mood and better performance at work. (If you need some tips on how to make it happen, we’ve got you covered.) “Maybe the self-care practice here is getting a certain number of hours a night, not exceeding a certain number of hours, getting to sleep by a certain time so you’re able to wake up by a certain time or creating a ritual to help you calm your body, relax and go to sleep,” Kahn said. 6. Meditate. Practicing meditation is one of the best ways to restore and reconnect with our mind and body, said Tamara Levitt, a Toronto-based meditation instructor and head of mindfulness at Calm.“As (writer) Anne Lamott said: ‘Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes,‘” Lamott said. “There is immense value in giving ourselves time and space to shift from ‘doing’ mode to ‘being’ mode. Meditation allows us to reconnect with the needs of our mind and body.”If you prefer guided meditations, you can check out the free version of apps like Headspace or Calm, or find videos on YouTube. And, of course, meditating in silence is another great option that doesn’t cost a dime. 7. Check in with yourself. At least once a day, if not more, take some time to check in with yourself. Pause to assess how hungry or full you are, any emotions you may be feeling or scan your body for areas of tightness. “Simply asking yourself the question, ‘How am I doing right now?’ is a gentle reminder to take care of yourself,” Hill Kooienga said. 8. Move your body. It might be dancing in your bedroom to a fire playlist, doing squats in your living room or participating in a community yoga class (which is generally less costly than a boutique fitness class). “However, if that still doesn’t fit in your budget, there are many free online yoga videos on YouTube,” Kahn said. “One of my favourites is Yoga With Adriene.”9. Connect with loved ones offline.Texting and email are convenient forms of communication, but they don’t satisfy our deep need for connection in the way more personal interactions do. “Call a friend, take a walk with a colleague or cook dinner with a family member,“ Dahlen deVos said. “Connecting with others we care for helps to shift us out of our heads, regulates our nervous systems and elevates our moods.” 10. Invest time in a hobby. The demands of work, family and other obligations take up most of our time and energy, leaving barely any room in our schedules for activities we truly enjoy. But carving out some time for our hobbies — even when we have a lot on our plate — matters. “Most of us are too busy to make time for activities that are joy-filled and feel nurturing,” Levitt said. “Find a time each week to shut off your electronics, and engage in a hobby that rejuvenates your spirit; play music, write in a journal, take a cooking class. While electronics deplete us, our favourite activities nourish us.”11. Take some deep breaths.During high-stress periods, we may go hours or even a whole day without taking a full, grounding breath if we’re not intentional about it. “I like to take a few deep breaths in the morning and also throughout the day because it helps me to recenter and connect more with the present moment,” said Jessica Jones, a San Francisco-based registered dietitian and co-founder of Food Heaven. “One strategy that I use to remind myself to do this is to take three deep breaths every time I go to the bathroom and wash my hands. It’s easy, free and makes a huge difference in my daily stress levels.” 12. Volunteer your time with an organisation you care about. Choose your cause, whatever it may be, and then figure out a way you can pitch in. “Engaging in altruistic acts and seeing our actions make a direct and positive impact in the lives of others is a surefire way to shift your mood and feel part of something bigger than yourself,” Dahlen deVos said. “This can help put our problems in context, or at least give us a break from stressors without numbing out.”13. Eat more vegetables. Aim to put more of your food budget toward veggies and less towards ultra-processed snack foods. Then, to up your intake, cut up some vegetables at the beginning of the week and store them in your fridge — that way you can easily grab them when you need a snack or throw in a handful or two to spruce up your meals. “Most of us are not consuming near enough whole foods let alone vegetables, which keep us nice and full because of prolonged satiety from the fibre,” Hill Kooienga said. “Vegetables nourish our physical bodies on a cellular level with fibre, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants, and they can taste really delicious too.” 14. Cuddle with someone you love. Snuggle up next to your partner, your child or even your BFF.“Cuddling releases oxytocin, a feel good hormone, that also helps with reducing stress,” said Lynsie Seely, a marriage and family therapist in San Francisco. Pets make great cuddle buddies, too. Plus, spending time with our furry friends has been shown to alleviate anxiety, depression and feelings of loneliness.“If you don’t have access to a pet, go visit adoptable animals at the local shelter, sign up to walk dogs for a service such as WAG or sip tea at a cat cafe,” Dahlen deVos said. 15. Say “no” more often.We often think of self-care as doing something extra for ourselves on top of our normal day-to-day activities. But self-care can also be about what you choose not to do, Seely said.One way to give a healthy “no”? Start setting boundaries with the people in your life. “So many of us are people pleasers and spend a lot of time doing things out of feelings of guilt and obligation, causing us to feel energetically drained and lacking the ability to focus on ourselves and what we truly want,” said Sara Groton, a nutrition and eating psychology coach in San Francisco. “Any time I find myself thinking ’I should do that or I have to do that,′ I take a moment to question and challenge that thought.”16. Practise self-compassion.All the face masks, manicures and massages in the world can’t undo the damage of that harsh inner voice criticising, judging and berating yourself all day long. If you don’t know where to begin with self-compassion, Allison Hart ― a mental health professional in San Francisco ― recommended putting your hand over your heart and saying to yourself: “I am struggling right now. I’m in pain, I’m angry or feeling out of the flow. May I be gentle and flexible with myself. May I be kind to myself and may I take a break from problem-solving just for a moment.”Related...
