Why Zuckerberg Should "Share" the Facebook Kingdom Facebook is worth $75-$100 billion. If we broke that down by user, it would mean that each individual is worth $118.34. Or, if we're looking at it in terms of revenue from 2011 - $3.71 billion - each user is worth $4.39 in revenue per user per year. Yet Zuckerberg owns 28.4% of Facebook, and holds 56.9% of the voting power. The world over is reacting to the fact that Facebook has now put a dollar value on 845 million users' personal data. Zuckerberg had something to say about it, too.

Apple and social networks under fire over iPhone privacy Apple and social networks are under fire for distributing several social media apps through Apple’s iTunes store that harvest iPhone contact information without users’ permission. iPhone apps from social networking sites – including Twitter, Facebook, FourSquare, Instagram, Foodspotting, Path and Yelp – are reported to access the iPhone address book. In a letter to Apple, two US congressmen have called on Apple to explain why it has not blocked the apps, which violate Apple’s user guidelines. The Apple guidelines say: "Apps that read or write data outside its designated container area will be rejected." They also say: "Apps cannot transmit data about a user without obtaining the user's prior permission."

Social Source Commons Problem Statement A great range of resources exist to inform software selection, use and support in NPOs and NGOs, but they are not well connected, and rarely share common formats or metadata.

Complicity and the Brain: Dynamics in Attractor Space Dr. Peter Henningsen Abstract: New Deep-Sea Worms Found—Have Big "Lips" Photograph courtesy David Shale The research has shed new light on acorn worms, formerly known as a homogeneous group called shallow-water burrowers, said Karen Osborn , an evolutionary biologist at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. "The shallow-water worms pretty much all look the same," said Osborn, who co-authored a new study—published November 16 in —showing the worms live in deep waters worldwide. "But at some point, one of these shallow-water guys got into deep water, and they've changed their morphology to deal with the unique challenges of that deep-sea habitat."

The Facebook Platform Kill Switch, What It Means Today Facebook officially announced the option for allowing users to completely opt-out of the Facebook Platform and prevent applications from gaining access to their information. While many developers are rightfully concerned about the feature, we’d like to take the opportunity to thoroughly address how the new “opt-out button” functions and what it will mean for developers. Prior to jumping into what the implications of the new button that lets you turn off the Facebook Platform and block all applications, we thought it would be useful to share how to block the Facebook Platform under the new configuration. The Connections Between Social Networks and Cloud Computing Everyone is talking about “the cloud.” But what does it mean? Business applications are moving to the cloud.
