Here's the lowdown on Google+'s privacy controls, including a few of the more buried settings you'll want to know about. This guide will take you through setting up Google+'s circles with an emphasis on how they work from a privacy perspective, how to control what others can see about you on your profile, your options for selectively sharing posts with others, and some miscellaneous settings you'll want to tweak — like only allowing friends to start Huddles with you.

Tumblr Is More Than Porn: Tumblr for Inviting Participation and Conversations for Learning « The Unquiet Librarian This past Wednesday at work, I was attempting to cross-post content from one of my dashboards to my Tumblr account; I was started to discover that it was no longer available to me on campus.

No. Well, at least not entirely. Any number of tools – freely available on the Web – purport to tell us our overall social media influence or at least a slice of it (a la Twitter).
