Lets talk Facebook First, I’m not recommending to any of my companies that we leave facebook. I am recommending that we de-emphasize pushing consumers or partners to like us on FB and focus on building up our followings across all existing social media platforms and to evaluate those that we feel can grow a material following.

As media companies try desperately to solve their revenue problems by launching paywalls and subscription iPad apps, too few are looking at how connecting with their community (or communities) can help. That’s the view of Public Radio International’s vice-president of interactive, Michael Skoler, in a piece written for Harvard University’s Nieman Foundation for Journalism .

I noticed a fun little trend in our traffic, and I posted it to the sports reddit :
Mobile platforms are becoming as important -- if not more so -- than desktop releases, according to Erick Tseng, head of mobile products at Facebook . Referring to the announcement of Timeline at last week's f8 Developers Forum, Tseng told the audience at GigaOM's Mobilize 2011 forum in San Francisco on Tuesday that one of the most interesting parts of the launch is that most of it will be ready for mobile platforms immediately. That's essential as out of Facebook's 800 million users (and counting), approximately 350 million of them are mobile users.
The impression is the basic unit of attention that has been sold by media and bought by advertisers for more than 50 years.
Twitter just released a year-end list of top trends for 2010, much as search engines like Google and Bing release their top queries . But it's a little different here.
