Sorry, tech press. Google+ is alive and well.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/Z6sQ6w )

A chorus of tech journalists this week is saying that Google is phasing out its social network, Google+.

Where did they get this juicy nugget of information? Well, they made it up. And I'll tell you why.

Will Facebook envy wreck Twitter?

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/Xlxx4N )

As we learned from last week's earnings calls, Facebook is killing it these days. Twitter, not so much.

Twitter's interim CEO Jack Dorsey said the company is lousy at communicating to and thrilling "mainstream" users, and as result, struggles to gain new users. He added that fixing Twitter will take "considerable" time.

Even more troubling is that Twitter Chief Financial Officer Anthony Noto said during the call that "sustained, meaningful growth" can't happen until Twitter reaches "the mass market."

The "mass market" is just Twitter code for "Facebook users."

Twitter has a serious and obvious case of Facebook envy. They want what Facebook's got, and they're apparently planning to get it by re-creating Twitter in Facebook's image.

And that might be a huge mistake. Here's why:

So politicians are supposed to order Cheeze Whiz on their Philly Cheesesteaks to prove they're regular people.

Or is it a test of bravery? 

Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker is in the press today because he reportedly committed multiple faux pas in the obligatory theater of pretending to be a working class local that's required of presidential candidates: https://goo.gl/X5TMqn

One of these is that he ordered American cheese on his Philly cheesesteak instead of Cheeze Whiz: http://goo.gl/MG2Yhj

American cheese is normally the required cheese for politicians to prove they're regular guys and gals, but Walker's handlers didn't properly brief him about Philadelphia. 

Gastronomically, there's little difference.

Personally, I think people should eat whatever they want. But you don't get to call it a "cheesesteak" sandwich if it doesn't have cheese. 

(Pro tip: If you want to eat a cheesesteak with cheese, order provolone.) 

At the end of the day, you've got it hand it to the Orwellian junk food marketers. They've convinced the public that only fake food is real. (Also: ignorance is strength.)

In a perfect world, our political candidates would set a good example by eating real food, the media wouldn't enable regionalist food shaming and cheesesteak sandwiches would have cheese.

TechInsider reports on a beer-bottle house as if it were somehow new or rare.

I personally saw dozens of these houses as a kid, and in fact thousands of them exist all over the world and have done for decades: https://goo.gl/CRtJyl

Why Google+ needs advertising.

My friend +Seth Fiegerman at Mashable wrote a good history of Google+. He calls Google+ a failure, but defines "failure" as the inability to "unseat" Facebook. And that's fair. (Every social company has failed to "unseat" them. Facebook's "monopoly on everybody" makes them unseatable.) 

Personally and selfishly, I don't care of Google+ crushes Facebook. I care that it exists, but to crush Facebook means that Google+ would have to become the mainstream brand, like McDonald's. Personally, I like quality. So I don't eat at McDonald's or spend more time than I have to at Facebook.com.

Why Google+ needs advertising.

My friend +Seth Fiegerman at Mashable wrote a good history of Google+. He calls Google+ a failure, but defines "failure" as the inability to "unseat" Facebook. And that's fair. (Every social company has failed to "unseat" them. Facebook's "monopoly on everybody" makes them unseatable.)

Personally, I like quality. So I don't eat at McDonald's or spend more time than I have to at Facebook.com. 

Seth concludes that Google has given up on making Google+ a Facebook killer and has settled for Google+ to be a "Pinterest look-alike." I see what he's getting at. Pinterest and Google+ are clearly the prettiest, most appealingly designed social networks.

But that perspective fails to understand the HUGE difference between Pinterest, which is mostly about shopping aspirations, and Google+, which is mostly about substantive conversations about everything. 

In other words, Pinterest and Google+ are the same because they're beautiful. But Pinterest and Google+ are also opposites because one is frivolous and the other is often deeply substantive.

Seth does not join the "Google+ is dead" fantasy, but instead predicts that Google will phase it out in a few years. 

Trouble is, there is actually no way to predict that. If Google+ is thriving and serving multiple purposes for Google (as it is now), then they won't phase it out. 

The test isn't whether Google is a runaway success story like YouTube or Search. Google has more than 100 products that contribute significantly to Google as a company without being competition-crushing services like YouTube and Search.

Personally, I think Google+ has the ability to grow and grow. Twitter is committing suicide right now by chasing Facebook. Their Facebook envy will cause them to kill what's good about Twitter in a program to remake the service to copy Facebook. When that process is complete, they'll be a second-rate Facebook, but also become a second-rate Twitter. (The full column on this idea is coming Monday.) 

Pinterest may do OK going forward. They've got a nice niche (women).

Most of the remaining social networks will fumble along as eyeballs gravitate to messaging apps and video sites like YouTube. 

Meanwhile, the Internet desperately needs a great site where smart people can have meaningful, troll-free conversations about their passions and interests. Google+ fills a sweet niche for smart people. Quality is far, FAR more valuable than quantity when it comes to users. 

(And Google needs a great site where they can announce and promote things, interact with fans, provide glue to their wearable products and all the rest.)

But Google+ also needs advertising. For Google+ to take its place as a significant contributor to Google as a business, it needs to pull its own weight. 

In fact, Google+ could be an amazing advertising vehicle for the same reason that airports are so coveted among advertisers. It's an educated subset of people who are generally hard to reach through advertising. 

Google+ also could be a valuable proving ground for contextual advertising, including mobile contextual advertising. 

This is an unpopular idea. People want something for nothing, which is what we all get right now on Google+. (If you're unfamiliar with my opinion on advertising, which is that it's the morally superior form of online monetization, please read this: http://goo.gl/yJ4H0F ).

Anyway, give Seth's article a read and comment there if you like: http://goo.gl/5lvJRM 

And let's get some advertising up in here, Google! ___

Woman buys old negatives at a thrift store; now she's crowdsourcing who, what and where on the Internet.

How cool is this? She's already identified the location of the shoot: Dockweiler Beach in Los Angeles near LAX. 

Now she's trying to find out who the two models are and when (in the 50s or 60s) these were taken.

Chrome to "discard" tabs so you don't have to!

You'll be able to recover them. 

If you want a more agressive approach (which I recommend), try the Great Suspender extension: https://goo.gl/OjWhr

As we speak, the chromium team is adding tab discarding to Windows and Mac OS platforms in the latest chromium build. Linux will follow shortly after. This feature enables least interesting tabs to get automatically discarded when system memory is running low. Discarded tabs are still visible on the tab strip and get reloaded when clicked on.

You can follow the work in progress by enabling the experimental flag named "Tab Discarding" at chrome://flags/#enable-tab-discarding.
Then check out chrome://discards too see all your tabs sorted from most interesting to least interesting. You can even discard one by yourself now ;)

For info, Chrome OS has already this feature.

How a mixed up Captcha prevented me from sending email

I was stopped from sending an email to a journalist on a prominent publication's web site because they use an email form to contact reporters. This was protected by a Captcha which displayed only a single number, but which insisted on typing two words.

Sorry, tech press. Google+ is alive and well.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/Z6sQ6w )

A chorus of tech journalists this week is saying that Google is phasing out its social network, Google+.

Where did they get this juicy nugget of information? Well, they made it up. And I'll tell you why.

But first, let's look at what the press is saying and compare that with reality:

User satisfaction with Google+ is higher than Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or LinkedIn.

But it's not as high as Pinterest, Wikipedia, YouTube or Instagram. This is according to a new report from the American Customer Satisfaction Index.

The biggest surprise was that Facebook satisfaction has risen from the bottom, and is now almost as high as Google+.

The trouble with Facebook's 'Real Names' policy

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/UDZi3E )

Trolls are a big problem. And, at some point, just about every company must grapple with the Internet scourge of these sadistic, trouble-making haters.

Any company that lets the public comment, from the tiniest blog to the biggest social network, must choose between anonymity—which encourages free expression but attracts trolls—or real identity—which reduces engagement but discourages trolls.

Facebook has dealt with this problem by trying to force a "Real Names" policy on users. The trouble is that the policy is inherently bigoted and discriminatory. 

Here's why Facebook's policy is such a disaster:

Is Apple's control freakery out of control?

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/VFuJie )

Apple makes money. A LOT of money.

The company reported nearly $50 billion in revenue for the quarter that ended June 27, as well as $10.7 billion in profit. For a handy comparison, that's about seven times more revenue and profit than McDonald's.

Apple's success gives it numerous benefits and privileges. One of these is that it gives Apple the ability to exert a previously unheard of level of control over both its App Store and its retail Apple Stores.

This has always been Apple's modus operandi. But, increasingly, the more successful Apple gets, the more it seizes control. Or could it be that Apple's control freakery is the key to its success?

From the post: 

Microsoft culturally sees food through the lens of Star Wars: a capitalist empire with many free-market options that you vote for with your wallet. They pay you enough to think with your money.

Google culturally sees food through the lens of Star Trek: a socialist empire in search of truth, where the basics of life are made free for you to focus on the complicated.
