Network Round Table: The Softer Side of Business733*Join us as we talk about Open-Mindedness on the Softer Side of Business HOA Season of #CoreValues    * *Open-Mindedness* Many of us think we are open minded. I am sure most of us could be more open to new ideas and ways of thinking. One of my (@104641199698156385999 ) favorite experiences had to do with this weeks guest @107022061436866576067. He had been spammed by someone new to Google+ and instead of just ignoring the situation he decided to take a few minutes to help this new Plusser learn what is expected here on #ThePlus . I have since seen Mark do this very thing and have learned from his example. This week as we explore the past present and future of Open-Mindedness we will be enlightened by one of the most peaceful men on the Plus. *Friday, March 20th 2015* *11:42 am MST* (1:42 pm EST, 12:42 pm CST, and 10:42 am PST) This Weeks Guests: This Week's #PlusOneSuperHero      @107022061436866576067  This Week's #PlusOneSideKick      @110619855408549015935  This Week's #CoHostOne  is      @101280116286631896187  This Week's #CoHostTwo  is      @104683923092143784953    Mobile Link: http://goo.gl/m2nUDG Watch on Google+: http://goo.gl/VwSZcZ Watch on YouTube: http://goo.gl/m2nUDG Learn More on http://.GPlus.Training's blog: http://goo.gl/aaNbYG Network Round Table is back for the Season of Values!   Core values are as vital as goals to our success.

Yifat Cohen73,444*What if....* Google+ is not a social network at all - never intended to be a Facebook killer, nor a Twitter wanna-be and definitely not in a rush to keep up with everything else out there...? *What if....* Google+ is Google's way of analyzing our personal relationships across all their products (because relationships can't be faked) and use that knowledge to fuel services like Google Now, Nest, Home automation and Driveless cars...? *"So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?"* @102034052532213921839 is an ex-Google employee who helped design the UX of Google+ before he left Google a year ago, and whose name came up again on the Plus stream when he shared his *Thoughts on Google+* asking [quote] "So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?" and got the community talking. *SO LET'S -TALK- HANGOUT ABOUT IT.* Chris is very disappointed with Google+ because he expects better from Google. But maybe he's expecting the wrong things? @113117251731252114390 rebutted Chris' post and defended Google+ in a Google+ post that was shared 524 time and sparked conversations across the Plus (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal1)  Chris responded - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/ChrisMessinaRebutal And Mike claimed that Chris lost the argument because he didn't answer the main questions: "What site has 1) a better community; 2) better troll control; 3) better photo tools; 4) better integration with a leading wearables platform; 5) better conversations; 6) better monetization; 7) better search?" (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal2) Basically, comparing Google+ to Facebook again. (_sigh_) *IS CHRIS USING GOOGLE+ WRONG?* Chris, who was an integral part in the development of Google+ for 3.5 years was told by @107742059751171695340 that he was using Google+ wrong. He should have been talking and listening to Top Contributors (which Jaana is one) who have their ears to the ground: _"Which is the direction it's taking? That depends. Also on us, the users.  Google listens."_ (You should definitely read the comments on Jaana's post, where she and Chris get into an agreement - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/JaanaNyströmGooglePlus) *IS IT ABOUT THE SHARED INTEREST GRAPH?* Perhaps the best insight is that of @105103058358743760661 who read between Chris' lines and brought up the point of Big Data and information networks: [Google+] "should have been 1000% focused on helping people build a rich information network around the things we care most about - our interest graph - and then to use that interest graph to connect us with *new* people who share those interests with us - our "shared interest graph." And if it's about the interest graph, then who's better than @115620878851836664537 to remind us that that takes time: _ It requires building a bunch of things, integrating them and then waiting to see how people will use them and what the data will show you. This means that we have to wait to see some results (many of which will impact search) andGoogle Rebuttal - Chris Messina's Perspective.2014-12-11 19:00:00173

Those 4 Girls1,032Welcome to @101560483852587124925 weekly show!! This week: *_Gender Roles - The Diversity Zone!!_*   See the original HOA, in case you missed it: http://bit.ly/1fZK61u This week's show is a continuation of the topic *"Gender Diversity"* live streamed on March 13, 2014. We invited our original panel back along with a few new faces from our audience and community. This is a conversation you don't want to miss! *RSVP YES or MAYBE* here on the event and you'll have a place holder so you can catch us live or watch the replay at your convenience! *_Meet Our Guests This Week!!!_* @106279635800132388713 - She is a Behavioral Scientist and Clinician with 16 years of experience in mental health, behavioral science, and public health. She is the author of a very tongue-in-cheek relationship wellness blog, "YOU'RE JUST A DUMBASS", to help people select and maintain healthy relationships and avoid some of the difficult life lessons that one encounters in suboptimal relationships. On http://yourejustadumbass.com, she shares techniques that she developed to help clients with creating relationship wellness in their lives. She is also the creator of http://playidealdate.com. She is developing this concept to offer people a unique approach to dating. What makes Play Ideal Date different is a mixed method matching system based on personalized attention and online dating! It is designed to be a modernized version of the "Dating Game" and appeared as an Official Google Hangout on Air during Social Media Week 2013 and was featured in Google Local NY's September 2013 Newsletter. She holds an MSW from the University of Michigan and a BA from Hunter College. She has been featured on FOX, NBC, HuffPostLive, ABC, PR Newswire and Vista magazine.  @106100021899687161101 - I am on Google Plus to engage and connect with the people behind the keyboards around the world. I get to share my experiences from my point of view so that those who it resonates with will hopefully share some of theirs. The multitude of uses for Google Plus are in large part what I find so fascinating and witnessing each persons creation, minute to minute is akin to seeing a micro-verse develop right before my eyes. I've had a successful blog, a blog-talk radio show, both very past tense...now, I simply enjoy the camaraderie and I get to promote people and businesses I believe in. @110619855408549015935  - I've lived in South Florida my whole life, and it would be hard for me to imagine living anywhere else. I was born to two wonderful parents who are still together after all these years and into a wonderful and supportive family that stuck together through all the trials we faced. I'm an absolute technology geek. If software runs on it, I want to know about it. I've had many passions in my life, and nearly all of them have involved technology and science, but art, philosophy, and even a mystical streak also help define me. I can also geek out on stuff like Doctor Who, Sleepy Hollow, and Homeland.Gender Roles cont. | The Diversity Zone2014-04-17 19:00:00111

ISOOSI Research Engine3,474This week on the #ISOOSICHAT  we are excited to have special guest @112116680648779331229 from Search Engine Roundtable (SER). Barry will be joining our regular #ISOOSIChat panelists including @113426828273677356184 @106515636986325493284 and @112430199625001815612. Barry has provided a very unique and valuable commentary on search engines and the search marketing industry for many years. Barry and the SER team report on the most interesting threads taking place at various popular Search Engine Marketing forums each day. Search Engine Roundtable not only reports on these topical issues, but also provides a synopsis that provides greater detail on these forum threads. One of SER's primary goals is provide a single source for the reader to visit to locate the most interesting threads covered at the SEM forums. Those in our audience that visit or contribute to forums know that sometimes things can get stated that are not based on facts. Sometimes these observations may lead to statements that sound like fact, but they are unfounded. We are after all talking about search engines here and considerations that are impacted by their algorithms - which unfortunately we in the SEM arena don't have access to :) Observations such as these can quickly turn from threads with some small incorrect assumptions into more widespread rumors and sometimes into larger myths that stick around for a longer period of time. Barry and his team do a great job of monitoring “hot topics” on the forums, presenting all sides of those important issues while contributing to the discussion with their own valued opinions. Bill Slawski, (Director of Search Marketing at Go Fish Digital) is well known for his vast knowledge of Google and other search engines and the patents that have been filed relating to their ranking algorithms. Although it is difficult to have certainty about the value and mix of individual search engine ranking signals, Bill has the notable ability to always bring always bring it back to facts…. referencing related patents, interviews or official statements on the subject. On this hangout we aim to separate fact from fiction. Rumors and myths versus papers and truths and all points between.Search Marketing Rumors, Myths and Truths2014-03-18 20:00:0062

Those 4 Girls1,032*Welcome to @101560483852587124925 weekly show!!* This week we are talking about *_Gender Roles - When Were They Defined  & How They Affect Today_* *When were gender roles defined?* *What was in place before gender roles were defined?* *Who defined them?* *How do gender roles affect us today in our current society?* *Meet Our Guests This Week!!!* @118298229252974224674  - My life, my experiences, and my education have two unique facets to them, and on this page, I hope to showcase how the two have blended to develop me into the person I am today. As a former active duty soldier now serving in the United States Army Reserves, I garner wisdom from both the Military training and from my civilian business adventures. As an Army Reservist Psychological Operations Specialist, I work to influence the behavior of enemy personnel and foreign audiences. In this line of work, we distribute targeted information or conduct specific activities with the purpose of changing emotions, ways of thinking, and ultimately behavior. We study target audiences. We work to understand cultures, symbols and practices. We then use what we learn from these studies to identify the most effective courses of action to change their behavior. As a graphic design artist, I find that these skills from Psychological Operations become invaluable in guiding every aspect of a successful design. The typography, imagery, placement, color and every other aspect of a print or web design can work together to influence the behavior of a potential or returning customer. Each aspect of a design can communicate alongside the actual message contained in the words. A design can convey emotions, nostalgia, patriotism, and much more to support or reinforce the message being delivered.  As an online marketer, these skills become equally valuable. In the modern landscape of social media, many lessons can be taken from Psychological Operations. By carefully crafting targeted messages and responses, you can subtly create and steer conversations and gain rapport with people around the world. This strategy of visual and social communication is one of my greatest passions. @110619855408549015935 - I've lived in South Florida my whole life, and it would be hard for me to imagine living anywhere else.  I was born to two wonderful parents who are still together after all these years and into a wonderful and supportive family that stuck together through all the trials we faced. I'm an absolute technology geek.  If software runs on it, I want to know about it.  I've had many passions in my life, and nearly all of them have involved technology and science, but art, philosophy, and even a mystical streak also help define me.  I can also geek out on stuff like Doctor Who, Sleepy Hollow, and Homeland.  The geekery runs deep within me, but so does the artist and the dreamer. I'm also an Elder Scrolls addict, 1/16th Ewok, half Vulcan, and three-quarters Irish potato stew. I love technology and how it chGender Roles - When Were They Defined & How They Affect Us Today2014-03-13 18:00:0097  
Meloney Hall3,398Teacher Says, “ Okay, class --  you better take notes for this lesson.” Fifteen students take notes vigorously as they try to keep up with writing cursive on their lined notebook paper. Eight Students do not take any notes at all.  They might ask for someone’s notes later. One Student draws doodles as a form of note-taking.  She gets laughed at and told to “grow-up” and take notes the right way.  I’m kind of embarrassed I listened to those peers; I need to gain those skills again!  So much easier to retain the information when you can draw pictures with your written notes (printed, not cursive).  How about the Digital Way of taking notes today?  That’s what +113865527017476906160  will be showing us during the HOA broadcast with me.  I will be interviewing Sacha Chua on Wednesday, March 12th at 6:00pm ET / 3:00pm PT about how she uses SketchNotes for taking notes in a digital format.  Free-flow handwriting and techy all at the same time!  She’s a woman in science and technology, so she really loves gadgets!    She uses SketchNotes, and it’s really very fascinating!  Watching her do them LIVE is really the best!  I know Sacha as a fellow HelpOuts Provider, and I have seen her do this for many HOA’s.  This is why I wanted to interview her --  you’ll say WOW like I did when I first learned about her and what she does.    This is a link to give you the basic idea of what the system is and why it is so handy for students, business people, and anyone else who needs to retain information.  And if you’re into saving paper, then this is a true match for you!  I like to think of SketchNotes as a digital white board.  http://www.core77.com/blog/sketchnotes/sketchnotes_101_the_basics_of_visual_note-taking_19678.asp Select YES or MAYBE to get a reminder on your calendar.  It will also help mark the spot if you can’t watch live, but will want to watch the replay.  You’re in for a techy-treat!  Hope you’ll be watching! Visual Note-Taking with Sacha Chua2014-03-12 23:00:0034

Jess + Scott + You335People are bombarded with so many messages...which requires intentional planning to integrate a message across mediums, interact with customers in a way that brings them into the story, and know exactly what the result will be. *That’s the obvious truth of using storytelling in marketing.* *Source:* The company value proposition. (Who are you, what do you do, and why does it matter?) *Framework:* Stories position your product within the marketplace and are reinforced by every customer facing area of the business (and to ensure consistency...the buy in from employees, vendors, and collaborators must exist too). *Connection Point:* Stories show solutions to customer problems, give them opportunities to experience what they are told they will receive.  Here are some commonly held beliefs...that are actually myths: - Try to get customers to interact with the brand (but, do they really want to?). - Interaction builds relationship (but, do people want to have a relationship with a brand?). - Be everywhere all the time to reach customers (but, do customers want to hear from you all the time?) *Special Guest: Mike Allton* Combine all that with SEO and @107499215004519214139  is the one person we immediately thought of. Why? He comes from a website background, understands how the web can be our sales funnel and how our time and energy using social media (ohh… including automation) generates return. Come and lets dig into our understanding of *how we tell our story*, how it affects the actual experience when connecting to us, and how to create referral or recurring business by maintaining relationships.  Ohhh...Did we talk about “Differentiated Storytelling?”   And now, so can you. *YOU* (the *Y* in JSY) matter - come and explore this topic with @110746124112827812577 and @109237790792840071389. *Start the conversation now.* (We are a LATE show. Responding Yes or Maybe will set a reminder so you can catch the replay.) *Hashtag: #JSY * *Like the topic? Know someone that will enjoy it?* Invite your friends to watch too - right below these words you’ll see an *Invite More* button.Differentiate Through Storytelling2014-03-05 04:15:0046

Nicholas Cardot9,541I am excited to announce the third episode of Psychological Warfare. This week we'll be continuing our discussion of weapons of influence. Recall that during our last episode we discussed the principle of social proof, the principle of authority, the principle of scarcity, and we began discussing the principle of liking. We'll be picking up with parts of the principle of liking that we weren't able to cover and then we'll be introducing the last two psychological triggers.  We're also pleased to announce a new member to our panel: Please welcome the great @115124864391789940258 as the newest psywarrior! She is a digital storyteller with degrees in political science and history. She provides roadmaps to business owners who have difficulty finding their way through the digital marketing landscape.

Eli Fennell66,332*Mommy Blogging* Moms are some of the hardest working people in the world.  Working moms especially can teach you a lot about the tricky balance between home and hearth and struggling to pay for those things. Blogging is a powerful tool used by many moms to earn extra income from home, and as a means of connecting with the world beyond the home.  Mommy Bloggers can be some of the most creative bloggers and blog marketers out there. This week we're fortunate enough to have three great mom bloggers joining us on the show.  @116049412326685043114 is the Owner and Founder of @109443498013606253208, a company that broadcasts your conferences and meetings via social media.  She also runs the @104387705093966958943 blog along with @105157585341687205092.  @105461979270549477337, founder of the HinesSight Blog, Luxury Travel Editor for Skimbaco Lifestyle, and writer for Examiner.com, knows the best places to eat and stay in North Carolina.  As a mom to two young children, she knows the best in family travel, but as a parent in her mid-forties, she seeks out restaurants and hotels that adults can enjoy, too. @116648555722751383250 is Founder, Editor, & Writer of GoDanskerMom.com, and writes a guide for parents in the Triangle region (MominChapelHillNC.com).  Her work has appeared in several places including HerStories Project, ChapelBoro, Carolina Parent, Durham Macaroni Kid, Triangle Moms on Main, Vend Raleigh, and the Raleigh News & Observer‘s Triangle Mom2Mom.   I'll be interviewing them about Mommy Blogging, the skills, tools, and commitment necessary to be successful at it, and how their insights can help other Mom Bloggers and bloggers in general.  Join us this Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 8 PM ET!  We hope to see you there! #dmcshow   #digitalmediaconnections   #mommyblogger  Digital Media Connections #4 - Mommy Blogging2014-02-27 02:00:0017

What's Your Story? _Before I got here to Google Plus, I used to be a corporate rat who used to be a journalist, before I jumped ship into full-time writing and blogging._  _I travel a lot. Over the last three years I've spent time in thirteen countries and three continents making airports and hotel rooms more of a constant, for me, than home. The one stability in all this is Google+ where I can be found, time allowing, on most days._  _The conversation here is very real and the issues we talk about are engaging and I have met people on G+ who are simply superb to connect with. I post frequently on what grabs my attention. I share insights from my writing and research and I take part in many conversations where I feel I can deliver value.  Social media is changing everything. How we shape that change and what we do in the aftermath is down to us. _ This week's show is sponsored by: @108712904755834193601  A full service hotel, conveniently located in downtown Washington, DC The hotel is located within walking distance of the White House, DC Convention Center, and two separate Metro/subway stops. http://www.inndc.com Each week @117778937939543425499 & @101696764219780312734  spotlight guests who share their inspiring stories of ingenuity, tenacity and courage!

Eli Fennell66,332This week's broadcast of "Digital Media Connections" is on hiatus until next Wednesday, but I hope you'll join me and @117740874882168016435 for the first of what I hope will become a series of Hangout Shows discussing breaking technology news.

Eli Fennell66,332*Building a Following* There are different ways to build a following, and different goals in terms of reach and scale.  The small business owner may dream of internet media stardom, but probably doesn't need it like the Big Brand, their goals may be more modest (reaching that small but critical fan base, for example).  Likewise, the Tech Blogger may never rival the audience of Britney Spears, but can build a respectable and valuable audience in their own ways. This Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 8 PM ET, we'll be discussing this issue with three guests who have approached it in very different ways and with different opportunities as well. @110677274294554982279 is a web guy, home brewer, and "glasshole" (Google Glass Explorer) from my home state of Florida.  His turn ons include long walks on the beach while playing Ingress, and his turn offs include poorly coded or incomplete websites and blogs. @102000982871890720967 is an Authority Marketer & Brand Strategist at @115000108263064481690, a graduate student at Kent State University, and also a Glass Explorer.  She is a bit of a health nut and the proud owner of three dogs. @114468593663912084118 is a social media "International Man of Mystery".  His Google+ profile tells you very little specific about him, yet he earned a spot on Google+'s coveted  Suggested User List and has gained hundreds of thousands of followers.  He's not afraid to call out anything that bothers him, and when he does, he usually goes viral. We'll be discussing the different ways to build a following depending on your goals and the opportunities that present themselves.  I'll be adding my own perspective as a Two Time Veteran of the Google+ Algorithmic Suggested User List. It should be a very insightful discussion with a great group of people, and there will almost certainly be random moments of humor and silliness.  We hope you'll join us! #digitalmediaconnections   #DMCshow   #throughglass  Digital Media Connections #3 - Building a Following2014-02-13 02:00:0034  
ISOOSI Research Engine3,474@107022061436866576067 joins the ISOOSI chat today at 3pm EST and we're super excited to have him on the show.  Mark has been one of the people for me personally (and I know for many others too) that has really been instrumental in highlighting the benefits of Google+. But, not only the easy pickings that are clear to see. Mark evangelizes the use of Google+ as not only a business network but a social network. A social network that is on a different level to anything else we have on the interwebs. He'll be the first to say that it has given him opportunities that would never have existed before it. And I for one share that experience and couldn't agree more. All businesses can learn from this hangout... and we'll start really with the basics too. We know we have many small businesses that use ISOOSI and list their businesses in our search directory that currently have zero presence on Google+   So, some of what we talk about may be already known to those that are immersed in it on a daily basis.... but through this hangout we hope to join Mark in expressing our belief in the platform and communicate the benefits it can bring to you - from a personal AND business perspective. @112430199625001815612  President, ISOOSIGhost Town or Land of Opportunity - Google+2014-02-11 21:00:0095

I am going to ask every question about social that I can think of, but I need you help. What would you like to know? What are the gaps you need to be filled? How about cross platform posting? Tools they use? This is going to be a great opportunity to look at Google+, alongside Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and beyond. Can't wait. It is going to be a lot of fun too.Interview with three of the very best in Social Media!2014-02-11 20:00:00121

Yifat Cohen73,444*Simply having your site mobile compatible is not enough any more.* Think about it - Why did Facebook take a *mobile first-approach* when they launched Paper today? Why didn't they start with a web experience and think, “How can we strip this down and put it on a small screen?”  Because we engage with our phones and consume information on it differently. *How -Can- Do You Reach Your Customers On The Go?* It's not a question of IF, it's a question of when and how, and to answer your most urgent mobile questions I bring to you @110204961428230314896 who is known to be *Holding the hands of the "WHAT IF" and leading them to the "WHY NOT"* *The Power of Partnerships and Networks* Here's the beautiful part of this entire process - you really don't have to go at it alone.

Christine & Mia6,450Join +Christine & Mia and our January guest host +Craig Fifield to interview special guest +Eli Davidson this week. *Wednesday, January 15th* 11:30am PST/12:30pm MST/1:30pm CST/2:30pm EST More about our guest: +Eli Davidson is a nationally acclaimed female motivational keynote speaker, executive coach, award winning author, and corporate spokesperson. _If playing small is no longer an option this show is JUST for YOU. The worst day of my life sparked $100K DAYS and is helping kids in Africa. It’s still hard to talk about it. I fell in love- in love so bad that going to Costco was like going to Paris. You get the picture. I closed my business to move to Hawaii to get married. Baby, my abs looked really good. On a Wednesday morning my fiancé woke up and announced that he didn't know if he wanted to be in a relationship with anyone. And then asked me to get on a plane and go back to LA…..that day. So, in February 2011 I didn’t know how I would be able to pay my rent. I was a mess to put it mildly. That diamond I had given back was a symbol. A diamond is the most condensed form of wealth on the planet. I had to find the diamond inside myself. What was my value and contribution and how could I help others?_ _I am an entrepreneur so this took me on a journey of discovering the “diamond in my business “. By uncovering that value (and I will continue to be a student of this for the rest of my life) and creating those diamond systems I took my business from $4k a month to $100,000 days of sales and over $1million in sales in 2 years. Then I got to mentor other business owners to use those same systems. I guess it sounds self-serving, but that is not the intention. Women in particular have told me this story gives them the courage to stop playing small and go for it themselves. I am so excited to be on the show so I can give some tangible tools to help people now._ _I believe that small business can and must be a genuine engine of good works. What if every entrepreneur gave back to the planet? Now, helping business owners is a way to help make our world a better place. My life is pretty unrecognizable from a few years ago. I am still in awe. In my last event we just raised $25,000 to adopt a village and teach entrepreneurship in Africa. That is the point of all this. There is just so much good we can do together!_  *This week's show is sponsored by:* +CT Social  CT Social, LLC is an interactive digital agency based in Central Florida.

Yifat Cohen73,444METal is an exclusive gathering of and for dynamic entrepreneurs and change-makers in the media, entertainment and technology space. Their events range from talks with high-profile thinkers to connecting ideas and collaboration in our community. *One time sneak-view into METal's private meetings* This week, Tim Sanders, a New York Times bestselling author, public speaker, and former Yahoo! executive will be speaking about *Creating the Sale* The soul of this belief, comes from that creatives of all types have a passion for what they are doing because they are chasing the truth and doing “what’s right” with their lives. This is the fuel for their inventive thinking. They don’t deduce their way to the close, they create new worlds that bring everyone together. Much like a marketing executive or a software engineer, they bring their creativity to work everyday and find new joy in selling. *Many of us have one thing in common:* We are creative types trapped inside a body that is focused on a professional career, at this week’s COED METal, Featured speaker Tim Sanders will show us how to *become a creative sales genius.* Tim will show how the “funnel system” of sales is outdated, primal at this point in it’s assumptions. Each time we look at sales as a numbers game, we reduce people to statistics. That’s bad for our brand, future relationships and our sales-karma. This talk is perfect for any professional who faces a complicated sales process or an entrepreneur who is up against a high wall of resistance in selling his or her idea This week’s featured speaker is Best Selling Author Tim Sanders. Tim’s business expertise and deep research capabilities make him indispensable to some of the biggest brands in the world. He speaks for strong business relationships, both internal and external. *“Get them right,” he says, “and you’ll grow your business during good and bad times alike.”* Tim’s relevant point of view and reputation as a people expert makes him one of the most in demand keynote speakers on the conference and convention circuit. *ENTERTAINMENT* Enjoy the music of Freddie Ravel and Jhameel during this event. *Freddie Ravel* has two infectious passions: creating purpose-driven music and applying its proven effectiveness in helping entrepreneurs, businesses and corporations thrive. As an internationally-acclaimed Producer, Pianist, Presenter and Founder of the transformational engine BUSINESS HARMONICS® - an award-winning peak performance program and methodology to enhance leadership, collaboration and time management - Freddie brings an extensive track record of star power success in innovation, performance and product creation.

Jesse Wojdylo812,570Over the last few months I have noticed many people using Twitter to supplement Google+ or the other way around. I think there are some very effective strategies that can be used. This week we will get some of those strategies out on the table. All the information you need on Google Plus Chat is available here: http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/google-plus-chat-twitter-chat/ In December of last year I really jumped on Twitter in a big way as I love the real time updates and the sports engagement. This has yet to come to Google+ so I spend my weekends chatting it up with college football and college basketball folks. While doing that I notice plenty of other awesome social media users that know and love the Google+ platform. This led me to these discussion questions: 1. How long have you been active on Twitter? 2. Do you use Twitter for pleasure or business? Or pain? 3. Do you auto post to Twitter? Do you post Google+ Posts? 4. How do you use Twitter to supplement Google+? 5. Mention some active Twitter users that may enjoy Google+ 6. Do you want a Google Plus Chat on Christmas Eve? Please join us for #googlepluschat  on Twitter every Tuesday at 2:00 pm est. We will discuss if there will be a Christmas Eve event or not. Either way, join us this week!Google Plus Chat Twitter Chat2013-12-17 20:00:0054

Where do you watch most of your YouTube videos? Mobile? Desktop? Tablet? 4. Have you commented more with the Google+ integration? 5. What are ways users can build an audience through YouTube with Google+ comments? 6. Are Google+ comments for YouTube a bad thing?

Ronnie Bincer101,452I rarely use this "On Air" option for events... I'm trying to see if people I invite can be added to the guest list, and say Yes, No, Maybe, etc. to this invitation. I thought they could but a fellow G+er thinks that maybe they can't, so here we go! Can you help out by asking fellow testers (via the *Invite more people* button) to join in for a bit and get added to the guest list? You can say "yes" or "no" or "maybe" yourself too! Thanks for helping... it may help me with one more issue re. the Events tool as I continue my research on how all its bits and pieces function as I prep my eBook on this topic.This is a TEST of the 'On Air Event' functions, it is only a test ;-)2013-03-02 07:00:0065

I don't use the Facebook mobile app for many of the reasons enumerated in this article. I also don't trust their freewheeling attitude towards user privacy.

If you're an Android user, open Facebook's mobile site in the Chrome browser, click on the menu, and add the site to your desktop. You'll get a nice little icon on your home screen, just like you would for an app, and it won't eat your battery or kill performance.

About the Galaxy S6 and bloatware....

Forget what you might have heard: There's plenty of it. And though all but a few of the apps can be disabled (as is standard with most Android manufacturers these days), none can be easily removed.

That's the case for the U.S. T-Mobile version of the phone, at least. And to be clear, this is nothing out of the ordinary, especially for a carrier-connected phone; Android devices without this type of bloatware are more of the exception than the rule. I point it out only because of all the reports suggesting that Samsung was going to be doing something meaningfully different with preinstalled apps this go-round.

(My initial impressions of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are here, in case you missed 'em: http://www.computerworld.com/article/2901269/galaxy-s6-galaxy-s6-edge-hands-on.html) ___Well... it was a nice fantasy while it lasted.

The Art of Bluster and Hyperbole: Cyanogen Edition

Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster, in a recent interview with Forbes, said, "We're putting a bullet through Google's head."

Cyanogen, for the uninformed, is an Android ROM which began its life as an alternative ROM for some Android phones (for users who wanted more control and options for how to use the OS, or simply for users trying to eke one more Android upgrade out of a phone no longer supported by carriers or OEM's), and which is now promoted as the preinstalled version of Android on a few devices like the OnePlus One.  Their primary target, outside of the Android ROMing Community they still serve, is emerging markets.

The Art of Bluster and Hyperbole: Cyanogen Edition

Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster, in a recent interview with Forbes, said, "We're putting a bullet through Google's head."

Cyanogen, for the uninformed, is an Android ROM which began its life as an alternative ROM for some Android phones (for users who wanted more control and options for how to use the OS, or simply for users trying to eke one more Android upgrade out of a phone no longer supported by carriers or OEM's), and which is now promoted as the preinstalled version of Android on a few devices like the OnePlus One.  Their primary target, outside of the Android ROMing Community they still serve, is emerging markets.

While all told the Cyanogen version of Android does command many millions of users, and while the OnePlus One enjoys a passionate community and a fair deal of hype, it is a drop in a bucket of some two billion Android devices, the majority of which come preinstalled with Google's Android apps (a requirement for carriers and OEM's wanting access to these apps and the Google branding for their phone, though they are allowed to sell competing flavors of Android as long as they don't break app compatibility).

So, even if somehow, through some highly unlikely miracle, this tinker-toy-ROM-come-quasi-OS were to overcome the market share advantage Google's Android flavor currently enjoys (an advantage that grows geometrically by the day, week, month, and year), it would take a very, very long time just based on replacement cycles alone (unless 100% of Google Android users suddenly switched to Cyanogen at their very next replacement cycle).

Last time I checked, outside of extraordinary circumstances, a bullet to the head is quick and painless.  Even if Cyanogen were to 'beat' Android, the process would be quite long and painful, happening virtually in slow motion as both companies watched.

That's putting aside the question of why Cyanogen's flavor should be considered preferable.  The advantages generally mentioned even by heir own leaders seem aimed purely at OEMs, Carriers, and Developers, who can compete (one assumes through bidding processes or partnerships of some kind) to gain a preinstalled and even integrated advantage.

The biggest problem here, of course, is the lack of unity.  Depending on time and geographic location, your Cyanogen device might come with any number of preinstalled or integrated features.  Here, perhaps, is one running Microsoft apps and services; there, one running services popular in the Indian market; elsewhere, perhaps in Russia, one comes with Yandex apps and services preinstalled.

There may even, indeed, be cases where such a flexible approach would be advantageous.  Where, for example, Google services are not available or for good reasons not popular, or where it truly allows new innovations to reach consumers before larger competitors can copy and destroy the new player.

Unfortunately, such fragmentation tends in the long run to be more a liability than a virtue.  With fundamentally new approaches to a platform would necessarily arise new developer tools, such as new API's to plug-in to for access to, say, an integrated Cortana in Android, a 'Google Now'-like integrated product from Yandex or Baidu, a payment system specific to some developing market, etc...

Confronted with too many options, developers are prone to do what they always do: wittle it down to a handful, and often no more than one or two, flavors of Android to target.  Google will likely be the first of those, realistically, with Amazon perhaps remaining second target for developed markets, and certain smaller, regional flavors in places like China and India.  Very likely, it will remain Google First in Developed Markets, Amazon as an easy afterthought, and regional players in large developing markets for developers targeting those markets (where Google, Microsoft, Amazon, et al also intend to build a presence).

The end result is the very thing Cyanogen seems to oppose: consolidation around one or a few players in the market, with Cyanogen perhaps being one of the Developing Market flavors, if not the largest.  It gets worse, though: if Cyanogen can do this, almost any group of developers large enough and talented enough could do it as well, either by building on the Android Open Source Project as Cyanogen does, or by even building right on top of Cyanogen, with Cyanogen getting paid not one dime.

This, in fact, is pretty much inevitable, and someone else will always believe they have an even better-er, more open-er solution, for which of course they too would like to be paid.

Virtually the only way Cyanogen could limit such fragmentation would be to, say, set restrictive licensing terms on access to some of the apps and services they provide.  Which, of course, sounds exactly like what Google requires for their own apps and services.  Cyanogen could only confidently apply such terms if they owned, or had unbreakable partnerships with the owners of, the apps and services covered under this licensing agreement.  In other words, more consolidation, more ecosystem lock-in, even if the taste might vary by region or over time.

It's also entirely unclear to me how their business model gives the sorts of returns many of their early investors expect (surely not all their funding comes from long-term thinkers patiently waiting and hoping for Google's grip on the market to loosen at some unspecified future time).  Unless, of course, they intend to pursue either subscription or ad based monetization... which, again, is different from the current situation how exactly?

I'm all for more competition.  Even as a Google user, I benefit when Google sweats over the competition, and benefit far less when they feel 'safe' in the market.  Let us not kid ourselves, however: Cyanogen is either overpromising where they will surely underperform, or they secretly have ambitions virtually identical to the company whose Operating System they've sworn to 'take back'.

Pride goeth before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. - Proverbs 16:18

I once helped a friend move into a new home, and her story was very similar.  Comcast indicated on their website that her new address would be covered by Comcast; a customer service rep confirmed this by phone; the inside of the home had a cable outlet as one would expect; there was space for a new box to be installed outside the apartment.  I wondered immediately, though, at why her neighbors had so many satellite dishes, most of them planted at ground level.  I also wondered at why two nearby convenience stores had busy Red Box video rental machines.

Then the Comcast service tech showed up on moving-in day, diddled around for a while, equally confused by the cable outlet and space and connections for a new cable box... until he discovered that there was no longer any connection between the buildings and the main cable infrastructure.  After another week of trying to get someone to dosom... more »

Luckily, there was one other option for her: Verizon FIOS.  It cost more, but not so much more that she couldn't afford it, especially given the much faster connection speeds.  She was lucky.  Some of her less fortunate neighbors lived without proper broadband internet in their apartments, relying instead on dial up or mobile broadband connections.

The ISP's do this sort of thing deliberately.  We all know that.  They'd sooner pretend they covered an area, and give everyone the run around and waste a lot of time, than admit that the lack of broadband competition has stranded many Americans without something increasingly indispensable to our personal and professional lives.

This is what monopoly looks like: it literally leaves you with no other options, no matter how unfair or arbitrary the decisions made by the monopolists may be.___

User Experience is the First Rule of SEO

If there was a #1 Rule to SEO, it would be this.  I'll forgive a lot in a website, but I won't forgive it being slow, sluggish, ugly on any of my screens, or with a cluttered homepage that looks like it was designed by a chronic hoarder.

#SEO   #SEOTips   #SEOTips2015   #ns

Give Your Users a Great Experience

Before you worry about keyword densities and schemas and social signals for your website, remember the first rule: give your users a great experience.

Make sure, first and foremost, that your site is fast and responsive.  Speed and performance issues can kill a site no matter how many other things it gets right.  Make sure your site is Mobile Friendly, so you don't miss out on the growing user base visiting from their smartphones and tablets.  (For many sites, most of your traffic will come from mobile devices, so this is extremely important.)  A mobile site is good, but responsive design is generally preferable.

If your homepage is too long and large, put it on a diet.  Keep it short and sweet, linking out where it makes sense to dedicated sections and pages for richer content.  Users don't think of your homepage as the destination, they use it as a portal.

Make your Calls to Action Personal, Relevant, and present them at the end of your content, where the user is most likely to take action.

Make the User Experience the 1st Commandment of your Website Strategy, and everything else will flow from there.  Fail the end user, and no number of keywords or backlinks will redeem you.

News Industry to Commit 'Suicide by Facebook'?

It's no secret that the news media has long enjoyed a love-hate relationship with Facebook.  When Facebook's Director of Product Mike Hudack ranted about "click-bait journalism (http://goo.gl/ZWuVwF)", it didn't take long for journalists to point the finger back at the Big Blue Social Network as the primary cause of this trend.

On the other hand, many of these same news agencies experimented with Open Graph reading apps, which would display news articles to the reader without taking them away from Facebook.  The experiment failed, but Facebook apparently hasn't given up on the idea entirely.

News Industry to Commit 'Suicide by Facebook'?

On the other hand, many of these same news agencies experimented with Open Graph reading apps, which would display news articles to the reader without taking them away from Facebook.  The experiment failed, but Facebook apparently hasn't given up on the idea entirely.

For average web users, even at broadband speeds, the delay from clicking a link on Facebook to the external webpage loading can be several seconds or more.  These seconds compound into minutes, hours, eventually days and more, time spent on external websites instead of returning to Facebook's monetized News Feed.  On slow mobile connections and on low end mobile devices, where much of their traffic comes from now, this delay can be even greater.

It should therefore surprise no one that the company considers this an intolerable loss of Time On Service and wants to help you get to your news articles and back just that little bit faster.  Their plan?  To encourage news agencies to host their content inside Facebook.  No being sent to external sources anymore; no need to leave Facebook at all.  Welcome to the Facebook Wide Web.

On the one hand, it can be equally frustrating for users to be delayed when switching sites or apps, and many people would probably enjoy the faster browsing times this move would afford them.  On the other hand, what becomes of the 'Free and Independent Press' when they have completely signed their own publishing power over to an entity with no avowed interest in journalistic integrity?  Some might argue that, to a large degree, this is already true, but this would be tantamount to flushing their websites, newspapers, and magazines right down the drain.

Instead of waving the white flag and fighting over the scraps Facebook leaves behind once it has finished showing you every birthday, wedding, graduation, drunken party, homemade oatmeal cookies, baby pics, cat memes, and food porn generated by your Friends and Friends of Friends, they should redouble the foundations of their own businesses and risk innovating.

Instead of thinking of the Twitters and Facebooks of the world as an excuse to continue justifying budget cuts while delivering lousy and unengaging user experiences, the major media needs to learn how deliver the sorts of engaging experiences that translate into direct visits and user loyalty.  Leverage the tools of Social Media, SEO, and the App Stores while giving the reader pause before they click back to the website or app they came from.  Maybe they won't even go back at all, if you do a good enough job of it.

Journalistic Integrity and Innovation don't need to be enemies, and trusting a company with no interest in journalism to be your de facto publishing house is like giving the scorpion a ride on your back.  When it stings you, it bears no moral failing in its action.  It did what was in its nature.

Apple Watch Fan Fiction... No, Seriously!

Wow. Apple Watch fan fiction... for those who want to imagine all the things people with an actually exciting life might actually do with their Apple Watch.

This is how Apple gets millions of people who can't actually afford their products to spend out of their entitlement payments to buy them. It's the Air Jordan effect, where people are honestly convinced they can play like Mike if they just pony up the dough for a pair of shoes Mike never wore until he was paid to endorse them.

It ain't the shoes or the watch... it's you. And if you have time to write fan fiction about a luxury gadget, elevating its most minor features to near Divinity... it's definitely you.

Yep. This is exactly what that cult does to pump themselves into believing they need that next Apple product. Its also how they fool themselves into believing they're doing things that other people can't or weren't doing before them.

Bing to Test Single Page Search Results

Bing thinks you don't always need multiple pages of Search results to find your best answer, they've got the data to prove it, and they're putting their money where their mouth is.

Now, for some Searches, Bing may only surface a single page of results, with an explanation and a link to additional results (similar to when Google omits similar links from Search results).

This presents new challenges but, I think, also opens opportunities for SEO.  By identifying one of these single page Search results, it may be possible to target the query and achieve Page 1 ranking, which in this case is literally all that matters.

The answers to these questions may be crucial to the future of SEO.

Receive and Pay Bills Inside Gmail?

Rumors suggest that Google is working on a new service, codename Pony Express, to make it easier for users to receive and pay for their bills directly from inside Gmail.

The advantage here is that, instead of registering to pay your bills electronically through dozens of separate services, it may be possible to pay them all from the convenience of your email Inbox, perhaps even automating the process to some degree.

For Google, this could mean more access to a user's financial information (for data gathering and perhaps ad targeting purposes), both the bills they pay and the payment methods they use (the latter could benefit Google Wallet and all connected services like the Play Store, Play Books, Play Movies, etc...).

Would you sign up for such a service?

Google Glass Not Dead, Being Made 'Ready'

+Eric Schmidt​ confirms what many of us have said since the Google Glass Explorer program ended:

Reports of Google Glass's death have been greatly exaggerated. Far from dead, Glass has been put under the new Nest division to prepare it for a consumer launch.

One suspects that the very journalists promoting the "Glass is Dead!" meme knew very well that it wasn't, but are of the types who wanted it to fail from Day 1 and thus don't care what the truth is as long as it fits their preestablished viewpoint.

Google to Face Antitrust Charges in Europe

The FTC, after securing voluntary changes from the company, decided to forego charges against the Mountain View Search Empire.

Europe, however, may not follow in their footsteps, and is expected to announce formal antitrust charges soon.

Whatever the outcome, however, when all is said and done Google Search will likely remain the dominant Search engine of Europe. The only question, then, is what changes might occur to Google's business practices. Depending on the outcome, some of their efforts on the Continent may need to be abandoned or radically reimagined.

Facebook Testing 'Phone' Dialer App

Facebook is internally testing a new Android dialer app, 'Phone', which leverages their massive database of phone numbers to power Caller ID, and blocks 'commonly blocked numbers' (one assumes this refers to telemarketing calls, etc...).

While the latter is already available in competing products like Google Voice (which filters such numbers as 'Spam'), Facebook could enjoy a unique advantage in the first category. Their database of numbers linked to accounts means they might know who was calling even if that number was officially unlisted.

Unfortunately this is more likely to face privacy concerns, and it's hard to imagine they could legally implement such a system even in the U.S. without running afoul of laws and user backlash.

Unfortunately this is more likely to face privacy concerns, and it's hard to imagine they could legally implement such a system even in the U.S. without running afoul of laws and user backlash.

There may be other ways for Facebook to differentiate a Dialer, of course, like deeper Contacts integration pulling from your Facebook Friends List. The Caller ID, though, would be the true 'Killer Feature' of such a dialer, without which it hardly stands out against Google's own Hangouts Dialer let alone motivate abandoning the stock Dialer app that came with the phone. Unless and until the app launches officially, little more can be said but speculation.

"In our view, consumers are accustomed to using Google, and their habits reinforce the firm's moat. While the industry may not exhibit traditional switching costs, users may see little to no benefit in abandoning Google. Furthermore, the company can closely monitor clicks by every user to enhance the user experience. We would be surprised if the firm were to experience a dramatic loss of market share in search."

Keeping an Open Mind in Business

Join +Mark Traphagen and myself in an hour as we discuss the virtues of open-mindedness for business professionals.  We're just like the dynamic duo, but with more research studies and memes and fewer capes.

We'll be joining a great host and a great group of people, so expect this to be more fun than your usual business discussion.

See you then!

Join us as we talk about Open-Mindedness on the Softer Side of Business HOA Season of #CoreValues    

Open-Mindedness Many of us think we are open minded. I am sure most of us could be more open to new ideas and ways of thinking. One of my (+DENNIS N.

He had been spammed by someone new to Google+ and instead of just ignoring the situation he decided to take a few minutes to help this new Plusser learn what is expected here on #ThePlus . I have since seen Mark do this very thing and have learned from his example. This week as we explore the past present and future of Open-Mindedness we will be enlightened by one of the most peaceful men on the Plus.

Facebook Messenger to Become a Platform

Facebook will use its F8 Developer Conference this year to bring new API's for developers to plug-in to Facebook Messenger.

Just when it seemed social was the battle to win, Messaging is now emerging as a new front. Facebook is pushing Messenger and has acquired WhatsApp; Google is promoting Hangouts with its preinstalled-on-Android advantage; Snapchat is conquering the youth market; and parts of Asia are embracing messaging platforms like WeChat for far more than just messaging.

With its hundreds of millions of users, Facebook Messenger enjoys a strong position in this fight, even as it remains unclear how fully its users will embrace the new features being promoted.

Windows 10 for Android Phones? Well, Yes and No...

Microsoft is set to release a special Windows 10 ROM for the Xiaomi Mi 4 Smartphone, an Android smartphone available in the Chinese market.

This news has set a wave of reports and speculation about Microsoft backdooring Windows 10 onto Android devices, but the simple reality is that at this present time this is a limited project for a single smartphone. The purpose is not to create the 'Cyanogenmod' of Windows 10 in order to compete with Google on Android devices. Microsoft is already doing that by releasing more and more apps for the platform through the Play Store. The goal is to tap some of Xiaomi's user base to provide feedback in advance of a Chinese launch.

Windows 10 for Android Phones? Well, Yes and No...

Microsoft is already doing that by releasing more and more apps for the platform through the Play Store. The goal is to tap some of Xiaomi's user base to provide feedback in advance of a Chinese launch.

While Microsoft may release more Windows 10 ROM's for other platforms in the future, it will likely be for similar purposes: to test and get early feedback about new releases. Windows 10 on smartphones will naturally run on many of the same types of hardware as Android, may even literally come installed on separate versions of the same devices (e.g. the Windows Phone version of the HTC One). If this steals a few Android users away they won't complain, but realistically the number of users who install custom ROM's is small and not all of them prefer Microsoft.

Even Cyanogen Inc. could go only so far as a ROM without pursuing ambitions to be the preinstalled operating system of choice with partners like Xiaomi. Microsoft has already tried this for the past 5-years, so a ROM available only to select devices doesn't really move the needle.

So, while it has been a very humorous time to watch article after article try to turn this into a giant shot across-the-bow at Android, the reality is that this isn't even a glancing blow. Perhaps never before has a geeky Beta Program been received with such gravity.

See, this is what some of us mean when we say, "The tech media is sycophantic about ascribing every invention ever to Apple." It's as if they fear that to not credit everything to Apple will get them blacklisted and they won't get their free, totally-without-any-expectations-of-a-favor (of course) device units from the fruit company.

In Gruber's mind, dozens of groups and corporations involved in the development of a new standard sat around twiddling their thumbs waiting for Sir Jony Ive to receive divine revelation before they got any work done.

If anyone else was trying to credit the entire project to any one company, this might just be dismissed as 'how it works in the media'.

Chromecast Adds TV Remote Support

An update to Google's Chromecast stick now allows you to use your TV remote control (with some caveats) . Previously, you would use your mobile device or PC to control your content.

While this is generally seen as an advantage (because it doesn't require a clunky remote to use, unlike all of its competitors), some users may prefer to use their remote, and Android TV's (which support the Google Cast standard) also ship with remote controls.

While I, personally, could not have been more pleased to give up TV remotes (which I always lose, break, or forget to replace batteries for), this is just another argument against using anything else. Not only can you use the devices you already use to control your content now, but you can use your own TV remote, unlike some competing products.

The Really, REALLY Dirty Stuff Facebook's New Guidelines Allow

WARNING: NSFW (also, NSFP, 'Not Safe for Prudes')

Facebook announced revamped guidelines for what is, and isn't, allowed to be posted on their network.  Some of its guidelines are evolutions of previous, poorly-thought-out policies against things like breastfeeding and not using your real name.  Others are just clarifications of existing policies.

But do they really clarify much?  Not really.  While disallowing certain types of content for being 'offensive', it would allow equally offensive, and not-very-different, content, as you can see in the (I have to repeat this) EXTREMELY NSFW article linked below.

The Really, REALLY Dirty Stuff Facebook's New Guidelines Allow

WARNING: NSFW (also, NSFP, 'Not Safe for Prudes')

Facebook announced revamped guidelines for what is, and isn't, allowed to be posted on their network.  Some of its guidelines are evolutions of previous, poorly-thought-out policies against things like breastfeeding and not using your real name.  Others are just clarifications of existing policies.

But do they really clarify much?  Not really.  While disallowing certain types of content for being 'offensive', it would allow equally offensive, and not-very-different, content, as you can see in the (I have to repeat this) EXTREMELY NSFW article linked below.

While some of these may be a stretch, others would clearly fall within Facebook's own stated guidelines.  A quick glance at a few of them shows the underlying futility and hypocrisy of many others.

Of course, we can't really blame Facebook for trying to ensure that their network is safest for the largest numbers of users.  To do otherwise would potentially drive users away or encourage adults to keep young people away from the network entirely.

Nonetheless, with 1.4 billion users in nations around the world, it is inevitable that Facebook and any large social network becomes a force for massive Censorship.  In Facebook's case in particular, so many users depend so completely on it for their online relationships that this amounts effectively to a giant Dictatorship, one in which anything can be deemed inappropriate at any time by the 'Purity Police', who can then change their minds at any time, based not on open, democratic processes but on opaque decisions made for unclear reasons at the highest levels.

Rather than focusing on what to remove, Facebook should instead concede that without more transparency, and without a true user voice in decision making on these issues (beyond which group can complain the loudest and longest), they risk becoming a failed state, ruled by the tyranny of the few, the angry, and the prudish.  Such lessons are also worth considering for every social network that aspires to command a global user base.

Apple Watch App MANDATORY for iPhone Users

The new Apple Watch app downloads itself automatically to iPhones and, as of course it must, adds itself to the users homescreen.

Of course, preinstalled apps (or apps added automatically by update) can be a scourage on any smartphone; if you don't use Google+, for example, then the mandatory Google+ app on all Androids is going to annoy you.  All platforms come with preinstalled or mandatory apps that not every user wants and which, thus, some will consider an annoying waste of storage and screen space.

This case, however, is rather unique in that the app is useless unless you buy a second, separate device.  Android KitKat and Lollipop have Chromecast support built-in, but not as a separate app, and with no visual indication to the user unless and until an available Chromecast is detected.  The standalone Chromecastap... more »

This case, however, is rather unique in that the app is useless unless you buy a second, separate device.  Android KitKat and Lollipop have Chromecast support built-in, but not as a separate app, and with no visual indication to the user unless and until an available Chromecast is detected.  The standalone Chromecast app must be downloaded separately if you want it (or need it for older versions of Android).

This smacks of a none-too-subtle push to drive demand for a device that, like all smartwatches, is not enjoying huge demand (much like the entire wearables category at present, none of them being as justifiable as necessary as the smartphones most of them require to be more than pretty paperweights).

One wonders why a separate app was even necessary, given Apple's vertical integration advantage.  Surely they could have baked the support right into the OS?  Surely the Apple Watch and the newest iPhones weren't engineered in separate bubbles, but side-by-side to fit together like a glove on a hand?  This should surely be an advantage like none Android could compare with.

One also wonders what happens when future Apple wearables become available.  Will users be forced to have a dozen apps for devices they don't own on their homescreens?

Ironically, the problem is made worse by iOS's layout.  Whereas on Android, the user could at least have removed the app icon from the homescreen, iOS lacks an app drawer, meaning you can only rearrange icons and add them to folders.  While perhaps this may be 'more intuitive' than Android, as is often asserted, it also means you have no final recourse even to remove a pointless app icon from your view.

But seriously, this should be a blast and, who knows, maybe we'll have some surprise reveal, like he's actually Mike Traphagen who assumed his late twin brother Mark's identity, or he was sent here to deliver a cosmic message for all mankind about the dangers of artificial sweeteners.

And if not, you can always just enjoy learning what makes his mind tick, assuming he remembered to wind it this morning.

Who are you? Why? Why? Why? it seems like a simple exercise but the depth of insightfulness is profound. When we ask these questions of our weekly guests we end up with insight into who they are that we normally do not receive in the course of social media engagement.

I have a simple rule when it comes to whether I will even consider installing your news service or blog-based Android app:

If it doesn't offer to launch by default when I click a web link to your site, it isn't worth my storage space.

The sheer number of apps, even from major news services, that don't do this is appalling.

Wake Up Call - Your news or blog app is not my portal to your stuff. Google is my portal. Social networks are my portal. Your app is of use to me only at that moment when I click a link to your site. Otherwise I could not care less.

Who is Mark Traphagen?

That's the question we'll be exploring tomorrow afternoon. I'll be playing Robin to +Mark Traphagen​'s Batman, just with fewer spandex tights.

It should be a great show and I'm looking forward to finding out the answer. I'm betting he's really an NSA Operative... or possibly in Witness Protection. Or, you know, a brilliant marketing mind... but it would be so much cooler if he was actually a guardian of the ancient treasure of the Knights Templar. Or a cyborg sent from the future to win the robot war. #Spoilers

When we ask these questions of our weekly guests we end up with insight into who they are that we normally do not receive in the course of social media engagement. We also find the the guests learn things about themselves. Please for your own safety and the welfare of those you love DO TRY THIS AT HOME!

Network Round Table is back for the Season of Values!
 
This is our simple trailer HOA. We will be live asking the "Four Questions" Who are you? Why? Why? Why? Join us as we dig deep into who our guests are and why they believe the things they believe. 

Core values are as vital as goals to our success. If we are a #solopreneur   #SmallBusinessOwner   #entrepreneur  or part of one of the  #fortune500companies  we need core values to help us chart our course. Season three of NWRT will be all about the values we hold to and how we can uncover them to get a clearer picture of where we are going.
 
So  #SuperTroopers    keep the comments coming and help us create a show that will educate you about each of the 23 values we have selected to cover this season. 
 
Get the conversation started on the event page, and of course, post any questions you’d like to have answered during the show!

This week's co-hosts are +Kristin Drysdale and +Gina Fiedel. 
 
This season our #TeamTroupers  includes (in no particular order):
+Gail Harris +Elaine Nieberding +Leslie Wagstaff-Wilson +toni holder +Aaron Segal +Katrina Pfannkuch +Nora Whalen +Shawndra Higgins  +Gina Fiedel and +Jessica Maynard

#NWRT    #gombocme   #MicroHOA   #WhoAreYou  ___Who is Mark Traphagen?

That's the question we'll be exploring tomorrow afternoon. I'll be playing Robin to +Mark Traphagen​'s Batman, just with fewer spandex tights.

It should be a great show and I'm looking forward to finding out the answer. I'm betting he's really an NSA Operative... or possibly in Witness Protection. Or, you know, a brilliant marketing mind... but it would be so much cooler if he was actually a guardian of the ancient treasure of the Knights Templar. Or a cyborg sent from the future to win the robot war. #Spoilers

This does seem like a pretty naive statement on +Marissa Mayer​'s part. Gender may matter somewhat less overall in the tech industry than some industries, but inequities still exist, and additional systemic inequities all the way back to youth predispose women away from tech. (Not to mention the unfortunate tendency of many males in the tech industry to think of women in their industry as 'posers', 'fake nerds', etc...).

Of course, the simple lack of exactly the same number of men and women in an industry doesn't in itself mean inequity. There are some ways in which men and women simply differ, at least on an average basis. Boys are more likely to want to play with toy trucks and girls with dolls, and this has nothing to do with gender stereotypes or cultural bias as research on chimpanzee children shows the same pattern, clearly absent any human cultural bias.

Yes, some girl chimps go for the truck and some boy chimps for the doll, but they're more likely to follow the 'stereotypical' pattern.

But inequity and bias nonetheless play their part, and while +Marissa Mayer​ may not have experienced this during her meteoric rise at Google, a company so progressive on gender issues they even provide free tampons in female restrooms, not every company is so forward thinking.

Facebook Acquires and Shuts Down Google Competitor TheFind

Facebook has acquired TheFind, a Shopping Search Engine that competed with Google. Indeed, by one analysis, TheFind is the only alternative Shopping Search Engine to Google Shopping that is actually better in that vertical.

Then again, you've probably never heard of them, so it may not be too surprising that they will soon be shutting down. While some sources (including the one linked below) identified the acquisition as an ecommerce play similar to earlier attempts by 'The Social Network' to encourage people to buy products through Facebook, instead this seems to have been purely a play to acquire their ad technology for improved advertising relevance. Quite how this will work better than current offerings is unclear, nor can we know why Facebook thought it would.

Quite how this will work better than current offerings is unclear, nor can we know why Facebook thought it would.

Facebook has done this before, of course. They've acquired numerous technologies, in fact, to improve their advertising platform. This allows them to generate more revenue by achieving more reliable conversions, but it doesn't make them an ecommerce player in any way that they weren't a player already. Indeed, while this is certainly news, it is the sort of news largely of interest to people who care about whether Facebook's ads might produce a few percentage points of conversion higher than before. (I know... I know... that is one WILD AND CRAZY group, right? All the cool kids are improving ad targeting these days.)

The world has lost yet another Google competitor, sent to join the mass grave tended over by the competitor that refuses to die no matter what, Bing. But perhaps if Facebook's users are subjected to 10% fewer Christian Singles ads, the loss will have been worth it.___

Wow. Just wow.

Senator Graham (R-SC), during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, announced his intention to stage a military coup if elected. The exact quote:

"[A]nd here is the first thing I would do if I were President of the United States: I wouldn’t let Congress leave town until we fix this. I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to. We’re not leaving town until we restore these defense cuts. We’re not leaving town until we restore the intel cuts."

I really have no idea what one can add to this. He wants to use the military to force Congress to give more money to the military. After that, presumably, he would tell the military to go home, and not use them against Congress ever again.

(And as Taub notes in the story, he's not even saying that he'll use the military to hold Congress prisoner until they vote up or down on the issue; he's going to hold them prisoner until they vote a particular way.)

What the ever-loving fuck has this country come to that sitting US Senators consider calling for a military coup to be the sort of thing one does while campaigning for President?

Knowledge-Based Trust vs. Truthiness

"That's really scary to think about on this weekend."

Was this Fox News reporter talking about her concerns around climate change? Nope, she's worrying about how Google's latest Knowledge-Based Trust research will affect the battle between facts and truthiness. 

What's interesting is that when you read the actual research paper (http://goo.gl/13krAS), one of the examples that the Google researchers use is actually the birthplace of President Obama, using it to show "Kenya" as an incorrect answer, while "U.S." is correct. Yep. Not truthiness, but truth. 

Might we be headed to a very different version of the web, where it's no longer “Let the public decide what’s the truth” and we start building in better accountability structures for facts and truth? I hope so. 

Yes, Peter Parker's uncle Ben got it right when he noted that "with great power comes great responsibility." And that will be very much true when (not if) Google rolls out these new capabilities in Search, but personally, I'm quite excited at the prospect and the destabilization of truthiness that we've learned to accept as modern reality. 

Thanks to +Karen Peck and +Robert T. Best for catching this one.

I could not disagree more with the 9th Circuit on this ruling.  I have no issue with businesses manipulating rankings for money, as long as the paid nature of the ranking boost is somehow stated.

Many years ago, Search Engines and the U.S. FTC agreed to a set of guidelines requiring them to identify paid promotional rank boostings.  Thus, Google can't do what China's Baidu does and rank paying sites higher without some indication of the promotional nature.

That Yelp has somehow escaped these regulations disturbs me, and suggests a significant ignorance on the part of the 9th Circuit regarding what constitutes a Search Engine.

So, my answer to the question is this: don't pay Yelp a dime to get ranked better unless and until they admit and disclose the relationship.  It won't be Yelp facing bad publicity when the truth of how you ranked better comes out.

Is Fat a Feeling?

Non-profit organization Endangered Bodies wants Facebook to axe their 'Feeling Fat' emoticon, which they believe encourages eating disorders.

I have to agree with them on this one. Fat isn't a feeling, and those most likely to identify as 'feeling fat' are least likely to actually be fat and most likely to have an eating disorder.

The mere existence of this emoticon encourages disordered eating and thinking, especially in those most vulnerable to body image insecurities, especially adolescent females. It also undercuts their separate efforts to help reduce eating disorders in other ways.

The very fact that they defend this as a 'feeling' suggests a disconnect between 'The Hacker Way' and the very real body image issues millions struggle with.

Google's 'Accuracy Rank' a Threat to Truthiness

Anti climate change activists, anti vaxxers, and other anti science activists worry that Google's experiments in ranking sites by accuracy and surfacing accurate health information will threaten their SEO megaphone.

'Truthiness', a term popularized by Stephen Colbert of Colbert Report fame, is when you believe something because it 'feels true' (to you), a judgment call inversely proportional to actual knowledge for many people (i.e. the less of an expert someone is, the more likely they are to go with whatever 'feels right').

Anti vaxxers feel that vaccines are more dangerous than the diseases they prevent, because for them the threat of the vaccine is real, while the threat of polio is a threat from a past era they've never faced. For climate change deniers, it feels like the... more »

Anti vaxxers feel that vaccines are more dangerous than the diseases they prevent, because for them the threat of the vaccine is real, while the threat of polio is a threat from a past era they've never faced. For climate change deniers, it feels like the climate isn't changing or is only changing by natural forces because they can still make snow angels on a winter day in Toronto. For Creationists, it feels like life is too perfect to have evolved and the universe too perfect not to have been designed.

Truthiness unfortunately is a corrosive force when it becomes more than just personal ignorance and intuition, when it is preached as gospel or presented as scientific truth.

If Google, which has inadvertantly helped make Truthiness Warriors far more dangerous in some cases by amplifying their links, can replace some of the truthiness of the web with actual truth, I think it will be a good thing.

And anything that worries the anti vaxxers is generally something I will completely support.___

Quo Vadis, Facebook Anonymous Login?

Nearly a year ago, Facebook used their F8 Developer Conference to announce a surprising new experiment: Anonymous Logins.

The idea was to allow app developers to let users try out an app while logged-in using Facebook without handing over personal information to the developer.  In other words, it was a sort of 'Try Before You Buy' model for using an app with your Facebook credentials.  Upon agreeing to hand over your credentials, you could then use features like Friends connections with the app.

So, nearly a year on to releasing the feature into the wild, Anonymous Logins must be burning up the app market with their outrageous success, right?

Hardly.  Only a few handfuls of developers have access to the feature to date, and even fewer are using it.  So what happened to Facebook's grand experiment in anonymity?

The simple answer is: it never really existed.  Your user data was always available to the parent company, with only the developer denied access.  So while Facebook benefited from continuing to harvest data, the developers risked losing user information in an era where multi billion dollar business models can be built just on gathering enough user data.

Nor were there a clear set of use cases meant to benefit from this approach.  There are other ways for developers to offer a non-social experience alongside a social experience of using their app without using Anonymous Login at all, and there are other 'Try Before You Buy' app models likely to encourage stronger adoption.

While Snapchat and other anonymous and ephemeral social and messaging apps may be putting pressure on Facebook to explore new privacy models, the quiet and underwhelming fate of Anonymous Logins may prove that they're not quite ready to embrace the movement yet.

Google Wireless to Launch Nexus 6 Only?

Some rumors now suggest that Google's wireless service will only support the Nexus 6 at launch. This may help allay the concerns their carrier partners have about the service.

Naturally, compatibility between Google's wireless service and other phones was likely to be an issue no matter what. Many phones simply wouldn't support the data hopping between WiFi and mobile without some major reworking on the software side, if even then. One suspects Google intends this to be a compatibility backed in at the device level rather than some hack to make it work. This suggests the Nexus 6 was developed with this new service in mind.

The real question is whether Google intends this new service as a bandwidth play, a data play, a pricing play, an experimental play, an advertising play, a marketing play, or all of the above.

Will Google use its wireless service to pressure carriers to improve data switching or lower costs? Will they use it to better profile user behavior? To show more ads, possibly through cheaper ad supported plans? To better market Nexus and other devices given their formal blessing (which will likely be of the Nexus or near stock varieties)/in a bid to influence consumer demand and put pressure on carriers? Will they experiment with new bandwidth categories if their lobbying efforts pay off, or support Loon balloon connectivity to encourage better wireless access in rural areas?

The likelihood is all of these things will play a part, if consumer demand proves strong enough. Limiting compatibility may appease carriers for now but the long game seems much larger.

Apple Pay Popular for Identity Theft

Apple Pay currently enjoys the best media reception of any mobile wallet payment system. A common claim from both Apple and the media is that Apple Pay is "secure".

As it turns out, though... not so much. Identity Thieves have targeted the platform by setting up new iPhones with stolen financial credentials. The banks themselves, in their zeal to support Apple Pay, helped create this vulnerability.

This would be bad enough, but their favorite target for this happens to be Apple Stores, which accept Apple Pay and sell items of high value on the stolen goods market.

Mobile Wallets are meant to make us more secure, but if we blindly rush to embrace them we risk our security on a massive scale.

#ApplePay #GoogleWallet #MobilePayments #ns

Criminals in the US are using the new Apple Pay mobile payment system to buy high-value goods – often from Apple Stores – with stolen identities and credit card details.

Banks have been caught by surprise by the level of fraud, and the Guardian understands that some are scrambling to ensure that better verification and checking systems are put in place to prevent the problem running out of control, with around two million Americans already using the system.

When did "yearly upgrade" come to mean "a purely symbolic remarketing of the same crap we sold you last year, in some cases with reduced specs"?

I know I've been more than a bit hard on Apple for this crap. Maybe the Android OEM's figure similarly small thinking will win them equal profits?

Hey, when you've got no actual competitor (i.e. you don't have branded hardware partners), selling someone slightly upgraded junk is easy. If you want to break out in a sea of Sames, more of the Same won't do it.
