100 Friend Limits

Way back when, when I was on Facebook, I had a good amount of “friends” on the service, maybe 350-500.  I can’t recall the exact number, but it was a lot of people from High School, Undergraduate, Graduate, my various occupational peers and a few randoms as well.
On Twitter I have followed 96 people and [...]

Adolescence in Social Media

I’m beginning to think we are in the adolescent stages of “social media” like Facebook and Twitter.  It seems that these services (more so FB) have reached critical mass and peaked, at least in the States.  Now the search for serious innovation and value take over.  You’ll see a lot more new services from the [...]

App.net, Twitter and Facebook: Free or Paid?

Recently the founder of App.net, Dalton Caldwell, wrote a post criticizing bad faith negotiations between Facebook and his startup.  Essentially during the negotiations, he posits that FB basically told him that what his team was working on was in competition with something that the social network giant was working on, but to be nice, they’d [...]

You Should Be Creating Content Today

The times they are a changin’.
Especially at this point of the year with the olympics, it’s obvious that the way the US and world are consuming media is changing drastically.  Twitter launched in July 0f 2006, basically six years ago.  That’s not a lot of time, yet it is prevalent in how many consumers interact [...]

Facebook Stock

I’m still waiting to see financials for FB, but when the IPO happened and they were valuated at $104B, it seemed really high.  At the time I was thinking they did like $2b in revenue annually, but I think it’s actually much higher than that, closer to $4b.  That’s still not even close to a [...]

Obsolescence in Modern Times: Faster than the Speed of Code

Read a very interesting article on tech company obsolescence today.  The basic gist of it is that web based companies are not “master of their own domain” due to the typical infrastructure that sprouts at the time of their start.  The author then points out that these companies are part of three generations:  web 1.0 companies [...]

Draw Something

There has been A LOT of hubbub about Draw Something, the pictionary like application that was recently purchased by Zynga for an outrageous sum (given the time the company has been around, not the quality of the app or monetary considerations).  I haven’t followed it that closely, except for reading an article here and there [...]

Dropping Facebook, On Having Had

Read this post from Dave Winer the other day noting how he’d deleted his Facebook account and didn’t miss it.  It got me thinking about how long it had been since I’d gone off the grid there.So I looked.  This is the BEST part about writing a blog, you can actually go find out information [...]

Getting Away From…And Back to Twitter. And Other #SM.

For the better part of two years, I was very ensconced in all things social media.  I saw it as a revolutionary alteration to the world of marketing as I’d known it.  It was more of a hobby than a job, though I did incorporate a few things into my work environment at that point.  Of [...]

Account Deleted…Time To Graduate!

Facebook profile has been eradicated.  Updates about my life and endless conjecture will now be found here; smaller stuff will be on Twitter.  I hadn’t clicked on the RSS link in a while, but for some reason it doesn’t work in Chrome (ironic) and does work in Firefox.  So if you do subscribe, use Firefox, [...]
