Scot Duke2,583Share My Circle The Best of G+It's time again to help out the Newbies to G+ by giving them a leg up on finding the people in G+ who are interactive, responsive and down right COOL!I hear there are a few million more here since my last so I am sure they are probably sitting there scratching their head with a look of confusion on what is going on. I remember when I got here, that was my thoughts. Wish there had been someone then sharing quality Circles.So here is my Inter-circle of real live people. If you are not in this circle here might be why.To be placed in my most cherished circle of friends you have had to: -Be someone I know personally-Have at least made one comment made to any of my posts, -Have a nice headshot photo,-Have a full profile-Make a number of original posts-Understand how social networking works.Sounds simple doesn't it! Well it is and how you should look to building your own circle. Here is your start. If your current circles are not producing the interaction you are looking for you might need to flush them and start over with this one.Warning: If you load this circle into your account to start spamming these people I can only warn you these people are well trained at using the Block for Spam button. Plus, there are a few people from G+ hidden in this circle who are very proud of their creation and I have actually witnessed them removing Knuckleheads like a bouncer at a bar.Have fun socializing..it will pay off ten times more than just gawking or becoming a Knucklehead.2012-03-20 12:07:3131326715CC G+

In my personal opinion, we can learn a lot from photo - art - creative crew on Google+. They are so well connected and they are willing to share.I think this isn't a case for all kinds of SEO experts and that's bad. There is so many web sites on the world and not so many SEO consultants, we don't have to be selfish and greedy. There is a lot of place for all of us on the web.Share your circles and share your knowledge.Ivan Dimitrijević shared a circle with you.2011-10-01 19:35:4920046618CC G+

So... +Airbnb have launched the re-brand with a warm and fuzzy animation about belonging. Personally I kinda like it - nice bit of design, identity and positioning for the future for #Airbnb

p.s. ...I now want to breathe on a window and have a go at drawing the symbol!

The dwindling engagement of Facebook - and telling how it is

A well written email to 'The Zuck' running through why some are leaving. A lot of the comments bring up a range of interesting points too.

Indeed an interesting myriad of responses and reactions around this article about the 'social' behemoth that is Facebook.

Google Quality Rating Guidelines 2014 - for the Raters

Kudos to +Ana Hoffman  for the summary of 160 pages into the key points following.

NB: The activity of these rating factors is not directly inserted into Google's search algorithm. Rather what they do is used by the engineers of the algorithm to suggest possible tweaks and changes to that algorithm.

According to a post via +Jennifer Slegg (http://tgcafe.it/1w6fSON), Google has completely rewritten the Quality Ratings Guideline, the resource that their team of quality raters uses to rate websites for Google.

It has some great new insights into how Google is approaching the search results and what it takes to be a top ranked website.

KEY POINT SUMMARY:

♨  This is a brand new version from the ground up; not just a rewrite of the old one.

Reminder, Most Direct Traffic Isn't Actually Direct

After +The Atlantic first published their research into dark social [1] in 2012, I'm surprised that anyone else is surprised that the massive amount of direct traffic that sites gets - even when accounting for social - still isn't a reflection of direct traffic.

If you're looking to get a better grasp on the impacts of this for your website, +LunaMetrics have a cool plugin for +Google Analytics  named DirectMonster [2] that makes every effort to re-attribute this 'direct' traffic into a better source by propagating the traffic source data of the person that shared the URL when they copy the browser address bar URL to paste into an email or an instant message for example.

Animated GIFs Work On Pinterest!

Now, why didn't I realize this before? It turns out that animated GIFs will play on +Pinterest! That's fun! 

They aren't automatic though. You will see a little icon in the bottom right of the image that says GIF and when you click it the animation will start. 

I blame +Jeff Sieh and +Peg Fitzpatrick for not letting me know about this sooner! lol Am I the last one to realize this one or what?

P.S. If you're not already following me on Pinterest, you should: http://pinterest.com/dustinwstout - feel free to link your profile below!

Do you use vanity shortened links?

I recently picked up http://TheSMH.co and was inpired in large part by +Dustin W. Stout and his use of http://dustn.ws. Instead of using generic shortened links, I can now use branded links.

Deep Learning - Why Google Is Investing In It?

What Is Deep Learning?

Deep learning is an emerging topic in artificial intelligence. A subcategory of machine learning, deep learning deals with the use of neural networks to improve things like speech recognition, computer vision, and natural language processing. It's quickly becoming one of the most sought-after fields in computer science.

 But how did it turn from an obscure academic topic into one of tech's most exciting fields--in under a decade?

In 2011, Stanford computer science professor Andrew Ng founded Google’s Google Brain project, which created a neural network trained with deep learning algorithms, which famously proved capable of recognizing high level concepts, such as cats, after watching just YouTube videos--and without ever having been told what a “cat” is.
