The New Facebook: A Timeline for Personal Discovery and Storytelling Brian Solis

Today at Facebook’s f8 developer conference we were reminded about what the story really is…you and me. No, it’s not about features, capabilities, or the number of users. We were reminded about the power of something much more important, our experiences, relationships, the content we create and share and how each paint a picture of who we are as individuals. Today Facebook introduced features for its users and developers alike that position Facebook not as a social network, but instead as a platform for storytelling and meaningful engagement.

Is Facebook Trying to Kill Privacy? [OPINION] Facebook New Changes 2011. Welcome to Forbes. Grow My Company. A while ago, I posted this on my Facebook Page: Tip: When you're annoyed about friends' social media posts, remember that you're in their space.

What The New Facebook Changes Mean For Businesses. Ordinary people and small businesses using Facebook are going to have to come to grips with two new terms after the big announcements Mark Zuckerberg made today at f8, the Facebook Developer conference. The first is "self-expression," which means your friends will know a lot more about what you read, what music you listen to, and even what you cook.

InShare318 As the line between social media and privacy continues to erode, I often think about these words by Gabriel García Márquez, “Everyone has three lives: a public life, a private life, and a secret life.” Sometimes in social media, we intentionally or often, unintentionally, blur the lines between who we are (outward facing), who we are (introspectively), and who we want to be.
