There is a very useful collaborated document being developed for users to get started with Google Plus. A Collaborative Document: (or how 120+ people wrote a book at the same time) is a shared file on Google docs and is being written/edited/modified while I am writing this. Oh, talking about books, check out a free ebook I wrote for google chrome users – 100 tips for Chrome, Chrome OS and Chromebooks So, when I was making a list of Google Chrome Extensions for Chrome, 1. I could make it easily 2. I could get you the best because these were picked by a large number of Google Plus users, most of them early adopters.
As more and more case studies and ‘how not to do’s’ emerge, more companies are beginning to realise the importance of social media in a crisis. I recently spoke at a seminar on crisis communications, and every single presenter, whether from a traditional background, B2C brand, state body, ended by stating the importance of using social media when your company faces a crisis. It’s certainly encouraging that so many practitioners are advocating the use of social media beforehand, instead of waiting to figure it out when the crisis hits, but there still seems to be confusion over how you can effectively use social media tools and platforms to effectively communicate, or control a crisis. Based on first hand experience and an awareness of other case studies in this space, I wanted to provide some best practice guidelines for using social media in a crisis. Own your front Page

For the 2010 election, we built a continuously updated election guide that let readers explore data related to each of the 509 congressional and gubernatorial races. After adding candidate information, race ratings, polls, election forecasts, campaign finance numbers and historical election results, we wanted a way for our political reporters to contribute live updates. We imagined them writing short news items and finding links to related stories from The New York Times and other sources, so that each page would reflect the most recent developments in that contest.
I’ve just learned about a new influence measurement tool called Peer Index . It is attempting to “help you discover the authorities and opinion formers on a given topic.” It’s pretty interesting because it allows you to search by topic, by person, by region, and by sources (i.e. blogs, social, etc.). Say, for instance, I want to know who the authority is on tree frogs in Singapore, I can search that term and find 10 people who might fit my needs. I take a look at Tree Frog Treks , because they have the highest peer index, to see if they have anything that might behoove my client who sells tree frog food.
Un probabile futuro Il futuro sarà senza Google, abbiamo scritto tempo fa, senza voler sembrare apocalittici. La Grande G in realtà non è destinata a scomparire ma di certo sarà indebolita dalla concorrenza (Apple, Facebook su tutte) e dal nuovo web social.
Perhaps you won't believe me since it's my job to spread the gospel of curation as the Chief Evangelist of Pearltrees, but I think curation is here to stay. These are the reasons why I believe this is the case. This year there has been a tremendous amount of buzz in Silicon Valley about curation.
I was, in short, infatuated with my new device. I’d been similarly infatuated with my old device, of course; but over the years the bloom had faded from our relationship. I’d developed trust issues with my Pearl, accountability issues, compatibility issues and even, toward the end, some doubts about my Pearl’s very sanity, until I’d finally had to admit to myself that I’d outgrown the relationship. Do I need to point out that — absent some wild, anthropomorphizing projection in which my old BlackBerry felt sad about the waning of my love for it — our relationship was entirely one-sided? Let me point it out anyway.
La lettura Prodotti sempre più sofisticati corrispondono alle nostre fantasie di un rapporto erotico ideale, slegato dalla realtà Un paio di settimane fa ho sostituito il BlackBerry Pearl che avevo da tre anni con un BlackBerry Bold, molto più evoluto. Inutile dire che i progressi fatti dalla tecnologia in tre anni mi hanno molto colpito. Anche quando non dovevo chiamare qualcuno, o scrivere messaggini o mandare email, continuavo ad accarezzare il mio nuovo Bold. Osservavo lo schermo meravigliosamente nitido, sentivo la scorrevolezza del track pad, provavo la sconvolgente velocità delle sue risposte, ammiravo la seducente eleganza della grafica. In breve, ne ero infatuato.
There have been quite a few studies lately on what people Tweet and post on Facebook, and the large number of links that people share. Invariably, the links that most people share belong to large media organizations -- what used to be called mass-media. For example, Nate Silver recently analyzed links to news sources and found that of the top 30 news sources, nearly all were traditional large news sites such as AP or New York Times, only TMZ and Politico were new. A recent Yahoo! Research report found just 20,000 elite Twitter users produce 50% of Tweets (Twitter has 150 m users).

Roma - Sono giorni difficili per la reputazione di Twitter. Il sistema di cinguettii californiano, che continua ad essere un grande successo specialmente negli Stati Uniti e viene continuamente citato come baluardo informativo nelle emergenze del pianeta (qualche volta a ragione, qualche volta no), dichiara ormai qualcosa come 175 milioni di utenti e, nella vulgata riassuntiva di molta stampa, è spesso paragonato a Facebook quanto a successo, diffusione e possibilità future. Tuttavia non serve un esperto di social network per comprendere come Facebook sia chiaramente definibile come un luogo sociale di rete ampio e variegato, mentre Twitter fatichi ad allontanarsi da quella idea di semplice colonna cronologica informativa in eterno aggiornamento così come è sempre stato fin dagli esordi nel 2006.
Whoever said there’s not much new on the Web should have been around last week for the much-ballyhooed launch of Color – celebrated as one of the most exciting Web concepts to appear this year.
For much of the past year, the Twitter ecosystem has been in a state of flux. Ever since Twitter bought Tweetie and turned it into their own native iPhone app, third-party developers have been wondering where this would leave them. Further moves by Twitter into Android, iPad, Mac, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and other spaces have only compounded some of this fear. So Twitter has taken some time today in their developer forum to talk a bit about the state of the ecosystem and give some guidance. It’s blunt, but necessarily so.
