The Surprising (Content) Future of Google+ I have been spending time on Google+ since its launch, and though people on Google+ are talking a lot about Google+ (isn't that breaking the first rule of fight club?) every day I begin to see its potential take it into different directions -- not based upon the platform itself, but rather based upon its interoperability with Google's other properties. Seamless YouTube video integration. Real-time photo sharing via Google Photos. Music library streaming via Google Music.

Do we really need more social networks? Looking at New York based Chris and Becky Carella’s latest venture, Subjot, the answer could well be ‘yes’. Twitpic founder Noah Everett just launched his own Twitter clone, Heello, which has been met with raised eyebrows and confusion. Heello feels far too much like a barebones version of Twitter, at least for the time being. Subjot, on the other hand, makes a decent effort in terms of setting itself apart. Subjot is not just another Twitter clone. Subjot: A Twitter alternative that lets you curate content

For years, I’ve been looking for a serious online research tool that would let me not just add to the ratnest of bookmarks and “favorites” I have, but really control, annotate, correlate, tag and source online material. Last week, as I was gearing up to join WWD, I found an awesomely deep, free, open source and innovative tool in the form of a super-stable FireFox 2.0 extension: Zotero. Zotero is a brainchild of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, well funded thanks to several grants, including $1.2 million from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The money shows – Zotero is as slick as any commercial product, the documentation is deep and tasty with lots of nicely done screencasts and the developer info is some of the best Open Source project docs I’ve seen.

Microsoft FUSE Labs just released a brand new project – called the “CompanyCrowd”. This new research project is aimed at businesses or individuals which helps them easily aggregate social and media content from around the internet about a particular company or topic they’re interested in.

It’s fast, easy, and crowd-curated.CompanyCrowd makes this easy by first finding all the social data into one search index and then leverages the wisdom of the crowd to curate the right topics, experts, and personalities for the company or product in question.

In Eli Pariser’s recently published book, The Filter Bubble , he outlines the syndrome which makes Google and Facebook inherently addictive, the lock-in effect. Lock-in is the point at which users are so invested in their technology that even if competitors might offer better services, it’s not worth making the switch. Google has lock-in with search, and Facebook has lock-in with social networking. Neither companies seem have a strong lock on the engineers who are guiding the astronomical growth, but their users keep coming back despite many competing services.
