Debi Davis3,474_The purpose of a case study is to explore and experiment on a focused area of interest in order to develop theories, gain insights, and formulate conclusions that can be useful in advancing a body of knowledge._ On November 8, 2014, the #EagleCO  Team* was formed for the purpose of learning *how to introduce local businesses in a single town to Google Plus through the familiar territory of Google Maps.*  That, at least was the starting point.  This team of Google professionals – that’s what we’ve come to call ourselves as a result of this experience – has documented what we did and what we learned. The case study was published on April 15, 2015. (see link below) @101696764219780312734, known for her ability to get to the heart of the matter, will moderate a candid conversation with members of the team in a discussion about how the case study was conceived, the challenges encountered, the processes tested, the discoveries made, and plans for applying all of this going forward. None of this could have been accomplished without the support and encouragement of our various Google Plus networks and relationships.  If you’re receiving an invitation to this event, it is because you have shown interest in this project at some point: you have viewed or commented on an episode of the #PYBShow  featuring the project, you have commented on or shared a G+ post about it, or you have followed the @116892521277251383087 page that was created for the project. We invite you to be part of this event by commenting, asking questions, or just cheering us on. *This is, above all else, a celebration* of a goal that has been achieved through collaboration and dedication that was all made possible by the fabulousness of Google Plus. (Yes, “fabulousness” is a real word!)  *Team members:@102000982871890720967 @106708791607347215739 @115217137999606626868 @114099764891795191083 @111074048130521266574 @117875987563872032638 @114288177005200377179 @115238438924596047165 @115711602904460768024 @107095918319983994988 @106377741775412763530 @103252396937594847933 @113042596998797418291 @109243977328310908212 @103558652341658229842  Case study: http://bit.ly/1EpaWN4Local Businesses on Google Maps - A Case Study2015-04-21 23:00:00145  
Network Round Table: The Softer Side of Business750*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 Cohen76,279*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

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

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 Girls1,018*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 Hall3,522Teacher 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 + You355People 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?

Nicholas Cardot10,184I 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.

Eli Fennell66,396*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 02:00:0016

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 Fennell66,396This 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. On tonight's episode, we'll be discussing Facebook's surprise $16bn acquisition of the messenger app WhatsApp.  Was it a good deal, and are there any aspects of this acquisition worth paying attention to for technophiles and social media enthusiasts and marketers? The broadcast will run about 15 minutes.  We hope to see you there! #Technolerts  Technolerts #1: Facebook Acquires WhatsApp2014-02-20 02:00:0015

Eli Fennell66,396*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 Engine3,480@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 Cohen76,279*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?

Also we will be joined by my good friend  +Donart Nummer  We will be looking at the advantages and disadvantages of these four options: Google+ Comments, Facebook Comments, Disqus, and native WordPress ⇒ Can you improve SEO by amassing lots of comments? ⇒ Is there any value to “owning your comments" in a local database? ⇒ Do the SERPs Index comments? ⇒ What is the single most valuable thing about comments? Each of our panelists will give us *3 important facts* about “comment best practices specific to SEO and the Semantic Web” that we need to know   Catch past interviews at http://ontracktips.com Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTube - http://jtw.bz/YouTubeOTT  Listen to our Podcast in iTunes http://jtw.bz/iTunesOTT  Join us on Twitter using the hashtag #OnTrackTips   ====================================================== If you like this series, Please Share this with 2 friends Circle +Mark Traphagen   and  +David Amerland and +Donart Nummer    on G+ ====================================================== #commenting   #wordpresscomments   #googlepluscomments   #disqus   #comments   #blogcommenting   #blogcomments  Which Comment System is best for my Blog?2014-01-16 19:00:00155

Christine & Mia7,395Join +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 Cohen76,279METal 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 Wojdylo827,227Over 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.

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

So it wasn't just me turning into a crotchety old man before my time... today's music really is getting dumber. I grew up in the 90's and couldn't even stand most of the new music back then, which was apparently two whole decades less stupid than today's music.

Apple Watch Hates Your Tattoos

If you've been planning to buy an Apple Watch, but you've got a tattoo right where the back of the watch would rest on your wrist, you may want to think twice: dark tattoos can cause it to malfunction.

This is because it detects (for security and other reasons) when it is being worn by measuring light absorption through the skin. A dark tattoo can confuse the Watch into believing it has been removed from your person.

Quite how such an elementary and predictable issue made it past QC in Cupertino we may never know, though perhaps Bendgate was an early sign that their standards have taken a back seat.

All Hail The Zuck

Our Lord and Master Mark Zuckerberg (Glory Be Upon His Name), in his busy schedule of saving souls and healing the sick, has recently found time to shine his radiant glory upon our outdated news media structures.

Instead of a messy diversity of views and opinions, the Ministers of Purity at Facebook have offered to host news content upon their Sanctified Servers. Complexity and Nuance, those Nefarious Foes of the Attention Economy, shall be purged to make way for Sublime Homogenization and Beatific Micro Targeting.

Apple Watch Shipment Predictions Cut in Half

Based on demand for Apple Watch's Taptic Engine, KGI research has revised their initial estimates of 20-30 million Apple Watches shipped in 2015 to under 15mn, and notes that demand for the product appears to be slowing, with the larger screen version easily outperforming the smaller version.

This would still be an impressive number for the category, but might suggest limited demand outside of Apple 'Super Fans'. It may even be a sign that wearables have yet to find their 'Killer Use' for consumers, who are holding back on these expensive smartphone accessories as a result.

A slow start won't necessarily doom the smartwatch, but may suggest the need for a broader wearables category. Perhaps watches alone won't be the new smartphones.

Google Wants to Join Your Discussions

Have you ever been in a debate, or discussing plans, by text message and found yourself Googling? Google has noticed, and one of their latest patents describes a method of summoning Google into the discussion.

Settle that argument about who costarred with Kevin Bacon in Footloose, find currency exchange rates while planning a vacation, etc..., all by summoning Google through a spoken or typed "Hotword" (e.g. "OK Google").

Google is already a participant in millions of conversations around the world, and this patent suggests a more frictionless way of including them. It also contributes to their vision of a Virtual Assistant.

Google+ Ripples Are No More

Google+ is discontinuing the "Ripples" feature, which allowed users to see how their most successful posts were being shared on the network.

Let me start by saying that, unfortunately, this may affect one of my favorite Google+ 3rd Party Tools, +Circloscope.  That would be unfortunate, as it is an invaluable social media marketing tool.  That, however, brings me to my own opinion about this move:

Google is right to remove Ripples, at least as an End User Feature of the network.  While Social Media Marketers and the Terminally Vain may have found Ripples useful, I think we all know that the average social network user could not care less to analyze the sharers and influencers of their Posts.  Note that there appears to be no obvious parallel on any other network.

The feature, like the recently removed Hashtag Box onPos... more »

Starting today, the Ripples feature in Google+ is no longer available. Page owners can continue to get post performance analytics through the Google+ Insights tool, located in the My Business dashboard. Thanks for your support as we continue to make Google+ a simpler, more streamlined experience for all. ___Google+ Ripples Are No More

The feature, like the recently removed Hashtag Box on Posts, or the "Recent Posts" section of Google Knowledge Panel listings for business (which, as +Mark Traphagen points out, now exist only in Personalized Search and only if the Searcher follows and engages with your Google+ Page), were certainly underused features of the network whose appeal was almost exclusively to marketers and didn't obviously improve things for the average user.

Indeed, the "Carrot and Stick" approach Google has used to tempt marketers to promote Google+ for things like SEO benefits, or to potentially punish marketers for not using Google+ actively, have been heavily criticized.  Other social networks attract users whom marketers follow, whereas Google+ has too often tried to do it the other way.  How well has that plan worked?  Well, deserved or not, it has created an impression in some circles that only marketers use Google+.

SInce the departure of Vic Gundotra, we have seen an effort to remove these underused, primarily-marketer-driven features offering no measurable benefit to the user.  If Google+ is to survive and thrive as a network, it must do so by capturing the loyalty of real everyday users, and not through a social version of "Extend, Embrace, and Extinguish" as appears to have been part of the original plan.

Recent Posts Vanish From the Knowledge Panel

The Recent Posts (on Google+) Section of the Google (Local) Knowledge Panel is gone. Actively posting to your business Google+ Page will, therefore, no longer benefit businesses in Google Search in this way.

Speaking as a Manager of several Local Business Pages over the last few years, I'm surprised the feature lasted this long. While potentially useful for improving your Search appearance and slipping a brief message or call to action into that space, the fit between the two was never ideal: while Google+ Posts have no character limit, the Post snippets were barely longer than a Tweet. (Speculation: With access to the Twitter firehose, could Google actually replace these with Recent Tweets now?)

The Following was easily my favorite new show of the past few years. I will gladly pay the subscription for any streaming service that picks it up if Netflix (which I already have) doesn't.

Pssst... hint hint +YouTube​, I will totally throw down for your premium service just for this. It could be your Orange is the New Black, and it already has a strong On Demand/DVR/Online viewership (myself included).

Internet.org Under Heavy Fire

Facebook's Internet.org, a mobile platform providing free access to select internet services for wireless users in developing markets, has had a rough month. First the service came under fire in India as part of a growing Net Neutrality movement. Then it received criticism from Latin American activists just as the service began to roll out to new Latin American markets.

In response, Facebook pledged to make Internet.org more of an open platform for services with very low data usage. That plan has yet to take shape clearly, but before it will get the chance, the company is receiving renewed criticism from advocacy groups in 31 nations.

Internet.org Under Heavy Fire

In response, Facebook pledged to make Internet.org more of an open platform for services with very low data usage. That plan has yet to take shape clearly, but before it will get the chance, the company is receiving renewed criticism from advocacy groups in 31 nations.

Their complaint, in plain language, is that while Internet.org bills itself as a philanthropic service to connect more users to the internet, their approach has been opaque, seemingly arbitrary, and blatantly self-serving. Among the 'Must Have' apps for developing markets according to Internet.org is, of course, Facebook itself but no other social networks; Bing but not Google; and a small Indian job search app instead of their market leading competitor, to give a few examples.

Advocates are pressuring The Social Network to adopt a more neutral stance, which does not create 'Free Lanes' and 'Paid Lanes' on the internet, undermine internet security by abandoning HTTPS just as it is becoming standard, or capture all user data through a Facebook proxy, all of which are problems with their current offering. Of course, such a deal wouldn't guarantee funneling Internet.org users through Facebook itself, undermining their short-term profit potential.

It remains to be seen if Mark Zuckerberg, who maintains that Free Lanes and Paid Lanes don't contradict his support of Net Neutrality, can put aside immediate profit motives to put his money where his mouth is and truly invest in the growth of the entire internet and try to win fair and square, rather than by hook or by crook.___

The Invisibility of the Crowd is No More
You Can't Hide From Social Media

A large and energetic crowd affords one the opportunity to behave mischieviously... or so our minds tell us.  Shaped as they are by thousands of years of instincts honed in our hunting-gathering era, our intuition tells us the larger and more unruly the crowd, the easier we can misbehave without being noticed.

Large sporting events are one of those venues that can still bring out this Crowd Mentality.  We see people in a mad rush to capture the prize of a loose ball in the stands, and for some of us, instinct says that it is acceptable to fight for it and win at any cost.  Push, shove, knee, punch... as long as that talisman is in our hands when all is said and done, the ends justify the means.

Anyways, our minds ask, who is ever going to know?  Out of so many thousands of people, and most eyes focused on the players and the field, will anyone really care?

Yet no matter how large the crowd, you can't escape the eyes of the almighty Share button.  No longer can you push down granny or outmuscle the Make a Wish kid to secure your prize, safe in the shadowy security of obscurity and anonymity.

So by all means, root root root for your home team, or the visitors if you prefer.  Buy some Peanuts and Crackerjacks, or a cold one for the seventh inning stretch.  If the stars align, and the ball should find itself in your hands, then treasure that moment and the memory you will carry with you forever.

But don't forget you're just a fan watching a sport, not Tributes in the Hunger Games.___

Taking the Facebook 'Blue Pill' FOR REAL

A potentially-lethal designer drug branded after the Facebook Logo has been creating a medical crisis in Hungary, with over a dozen people already hospitalized.  Officials fear the drug may soon make its way to the U.K.

The branding connection between the drug, which is not currently illegal, and the social network is unclear.  Is it meant to suggest its role as a "social" drug, or was some other meaning intended?

In any event, this is one case where the choice is clear: do not take the blue pill, or you may never wake up at all.

Google Search Designer Moved to Cardboard
Has VR Finally Arrived?

Google has moved Jon Wiley, lead designer of Google Search, to the Google Cardboard project, the Chocolate Factory's super affordable VR headgear product.

Cardboard, for those who may not have heard of it, uses an Android smartphone and a cheap Viewmaster-like headset (which can be made of very cheap materials if necessary, including the cardboard packaging material for which it is named) to produce an immersive VR effect.

While nowhere near as capable, in its current iteration, as high powered competitors like Samsung VR or Facebook's Oculus Rift, Cardboard allows for basic immersive VR on the cheap and, if there is a consumer VR market to speak of, Cardboard is its current frontrunner largely for this reason.

Transferring a lead designer from their core Search business to Cardboard may suggest that Google doesn't view this as a "Moonshot" meant to yield fruit in a decade, but a more urgent consumer play that could determine the next 'winner' in the battle for online supremacy.

The Search giant may be best positioned, in fact, to win this next market, as unlike OEM's like Samsung or Apple they needn't make a dime of margins on the hardware, and unlike Social giant Facebook they needn't wait until the platform can deliver a Second Life 3.0-style "social" experience to profit from its users.___

This is why tech articles about Google+ are so unforgivably bad... as pointed out in this article, and as anyone can confirm simply by looking up on Google+ any of the "It's a Ghost Town" reviews authors, it becomes obvious they never use Google+ and never have. Yet they write for publications that claim to provide "in depth" reporting. Never would one of them even consider letting an article about Twitter be written by a non-Twitter user or Facebook by a non-Facebook user (unless maybe it was one of those, "I'm leaving Facebook (temporarily)!" kinds of articles).

It would be funny if it didn't seem to warrant stripping all journalistic credentials from the publication.

Apple Kills Free Spotify?

Recently, Apple has been in talks with major music labels to boost their launch of a Beats streaming music service by eliminating competing free tiers, such as free Spotify or free YouTube music videos. These talks have already raised concerns among competition regulators in the U.S., who see in this is a similarly anticompetitive move to the Apple eBook Price Fixing case of recent years.

Maybe the timing is just coincidence, but lo! and behold, it appears Spotify will indeed be killing their free tier in favor of a free trial. Putting aside the question of whether free tier streaming music was a good business model... when a song played a million times can earn its artist only a few bucks... if this is being done just to make it easier for Apple to compete, then this should concern us all.

This.

I'm a fan of both D.C. and Marvel. I'll admit I have preferred Marvel on the whole and have enjoyed many of their movies and shows in recent years.

Yet, although I've usually thought of Marvel as more mature than D.C., I'm impressed that only D.C. in their recent Batman and Superman movies have thrown out the comic book formula: heroes are real people, with palpable feelings and relatable human problems. Villains are not faceless, so that you actually care when they get killed. Fights are not gratuitous and filled with witty banter, but violent struggles for survival in which even the winner walks away forever scarred. Most importantly: epic violence is not merely a terrifying spectacle which all civilians escape or are rescued from, but sudden, unexpected, and destructive of life as well as property.

Marvel needs, if anything, to throw out some of their own formula, such as "There must be a fight every 20-minutes even if it requires heroes to fight each other for no good reason." Let the Avengers stop to mourn the thousands dead in New York, instead of pretending somehow not one human died in an alien attack that nearly levels the city in minutes, or truly mourn the villain whose ghost they've just sent to the other side (we saw a hint of this in Captain America: The Winter Soldier). Let that death, in fact, be so profound that even the audience struggles with its moral implications.

Until then, for my money, D.C. has stepped up their game and is doing the better job of giving flesh to these creatures of ink and imagination.___

Woman Disables 24-Hour Tracking App, Fired by Employer

A California woman is suing her former employer Initech Intermex for wrongful termination after disabling an app that allowed her employer to monitor her 24-Hours a Day, 7-Days a Week.

The app, Xora StreetSmart, helps employers monitor workers outside of the office, such as contracters you may send out "into the field". It is meant to be initiated by employees during working hours, but in this case the employer insisted she keep the app and her phone active at all times.

As if to add insult to this privacy injury, he also boasted about his surveillance, pointing out for example that he knew what speeds she was driving at. For all intents and purposes, she might as well have been wearing an ankle bracelet like a prisoner.

Fortunately this case is likely to be a Slam Dunk, though it raises concerns about how employers may try to exploit new technologies to gain illegal levels of access into the private lives of employees. New technologies can help empower employers, but should not be used at the same time to disempower the worker.___

Social Media Survey: Winners and Losers

GlobalWebIndex's new survey of social media users is out, and the trends may be surprising. Pinterest, Tumblr, and Instagram are easily leading the pack for growth, achieving from 47% to 97% growth. YouTube, Twitter, and Google+ are showing slower growth, between 7% to 13%.

China a Smartphone Growth Market No More

Conventional wisdom over the past few years has been that China is a new growth market for smartphone sales, with countless millions upon millions of potential customers. While the customers do exist, the growth period it seems has already ended. Most Chinese phones sold today are smartphones, leaving only the upgrade cycle for those users and feature phone holdouts, much like any mature market.

While the Golden Days may be over, brand loyalty remains far-from-fixed, with companies like Xiaomi, Samsung, Lenovo, and Huawei all jockeying for positions in the market. Apple currently holds the #1 Spot, though their growth prospects are even more bleak given their preference for high end devices most Chinese users can't afford.

Facebook Testing Internal 'Search Engine'

Facebook is about to make its biggest direct move against Google in a long time by releasing an actual 'Search Engine' of its own. Unlike most rumored moves 'against' Google by Facebook, which are more often sidelong glances than full frontal assaults, this one really does strike at the very heart of Google Search in a way.

To be clear, this would not really be a 'Search Engine' in the sense of a Google or Bing lookalike. Instead, this feature (which is first appearing for some iOS users) will use Facebook's own index of shared links to create an in-app 'Search' for sharable links.

This could therefore be useful for users who (for example) want to share some link they've seen (perhaps shared by someone else) but can't find, or at least make it that little bit easier for... more »

Reqiuem In Terra Pax, Shared Circles

Shared Circles on Google+ are no more, and I feel it was probably for the best despite the good and legitimate uses for them.  I wrote the following article about Shared Circles last year, during a time when the issue was being hotly debated in the community.

Be assured it is no coincidence that Shared Circles were deprecated after the debut of Google+ Collections.  No longer can you grow a numerically large following through Mega Ball Circle Spam, the focus now being on connecting users to Collections on topics of interest to them.

Deliveries and Appointments Inside Google Search

Today, Google is unveiling a new feature for business listings in Search: Restaurant Delivery and Appointment Booking.  Currently limited to select partners like +EAT24, the update adds direct links to a business's online delivery ordering and appointment booking services (and even apps, where appropriate).

This will help Searchers order deliveries and book appointments with fewer clicks and less friction, but of course only for businesses that have properly claimed and set up their Google My Business Listings.

Nebraska Woman Sues All Gay People

Calling herself an Ambassador of God and Jesus Christ, a Nebraska woman has filed a lawsuit against all gay people. You've heard of Class Action Suits, but this may be the first Action Suit against a Class.

The woman, Sylvia Driskell, believes that homosexuality is a sin and that homosexuals know this or they wouldn't be "in the closet". (Though one is tempted to ask: "Not even if it was the most fabulous little closet ever?")

You may be tempted to wonder why God would hire this clearly unqualified woman to represent His interests in court. Surely He has a few good lawyers in heaven or, worst case scenario, could easily borrow one from hell's generous legal demographic?

It may be premature for gay people to start preparing their settlement cheques now, but then if she doesn't win, they can always spend that money on a vacation to San Fransisco, a gay cruise to the Bahamas, or a glorious celebration of matrimonial sin in a gay marriage friendly state. That way they're prepared either way.___

Google Voice to Project Fi: What to Know

Google's Project Fi, aimed at changing how smartphone users connect, roam, and use their phone and data service, is pushing the frontiers of communication. Unlike other carriers, whose phone and text services use traditional telephony systems, Project Fi uses the underlying Google Voice/Hangouts VOIP tech (recently overhauled) to deliver these things, although to the end user the result looks the same (with Fi calls and Texts not eating into your data plan), save the ability to send and receive calls and texts on many devices and switch primary phones using software only.

Given that 'under the skin' Project Fi is basically Google Voice, you might expect them to play nice together, but you'd only be half right:

Given that 'under the skin' Project Fi is basically Google Voice, you might expect them to play nice together, but you'd only be half right:

It is possible to transfer a Google Voice number to Project Fi. In fact, if you plan to use the same Gmail account for Fi as you use for Google Voice and want to keep your GV number, you have to transfer it or it will be deleted for the new Fi number. Transferring will solve this and allow you to retain many of the best features of Voice, and even save much of your data and settings, but afterwards you will lose many of Voice's best cloud powered features such as the web portal for messages and calls, use of Google Talk to make calls, etc... One assumes, though not mentioned here, that it is also possible to transfer your number back to Voice upon ending with Fi.

Be sure to consider all of these points before deciding that, as a Voice user, this is a natural transition.

Is Apple Trying to Kill Free Music to Boost Beats?

When Apple spent billions to acquire Beats Audio and their streaming music service, it wasn't clear how they planned to justify the expense. The streaming music market is already pretty crowded between Spotify, YouTube, and other players, some with free audio (and even video) tiers.

Maybe they didn't know, either, as reports suggest they may be trying to use backdoor chicanery to kill the competition, pressuring music industry players to end their support for free alternatives.

If indeed Apple has been pursuing this course, they'd be wise to withdraw now that their involvement is exposed. Costing millions of people their free Spotify and YouTube streams will not endear them to users and may actually do the unthinkable: drive away a significant number of users.

How would it make you feel if the cost of streaming music went up because of Apple? Are you using a free music streaming service?___

Facebook Opening Internet.org

After losing several prominent Indian partners, and facing mounting scrutiny in Latin America, over Net Neutrality concerns, Facebook's non-profit Internet.org is planning to open up to 3rd party developers. Internet.org, for the uninitiated, seeks to expand internet service in developing markets by working with Carriers to 'Zero Rate' data costs for included services.

Recently they've faced serious criticism, and abandonment by carrier partners, over the opaque process by which they chose included services... for example, Bing but not Google, and Facebook but not Twitter. Despite Mark Zuckerberg's passionate insistence that the program did not violate the spirit of Net Neutrality, the fact remained inescapable that Internet.org and Zero Rating create Free Lanes and Paid Lanes on the internet.

Worse, that Facebook alone seemed to have authority to choose winners and losers in this, and was not-so-surprisingly favoring itself, partners like Microsoft, and non-competitors like Wikipedia to the exclusion of any competitors.

They hope that, by turning Internet.org into more of an open platform with a transparent development process, they can turn the shifting tides back in their favor.___

Again, this would seem to confirm automatic hashtags were being retired, until I preceded to use Google+ Search to find posts related to certain hashtags.  It was then that I discovered, as I suspected, that the Search results returned numerous posts without the searched-for hashtag anywhere in them, yet which were clearly about the same topic the hashtag refers to.

My conclusion, therefore, is that automatic hashtagging still exists, but is now a background feature only for powering Search results for hashtagged posts on Google+, and otherwise invisible to the end user.  It is likely as simple as that the hashtag box was not getting much use, so they removed it.

Removing the entire automatic hashtagging feature, however, would gain Google nothing.  Clearly the future of social media trends isn't based on typing out #OITNB , but on the social network being smart enough to know when your post is about the show regardless.  For a Search company, it would be downright reckless not to innovate a new approach to social trends requiring as little technical savvy for the user as possible.

I don't believe automatic hashtagging will go away.  It will simply no longer be apparent except when Searching for relevant trends.

Apple Watch Hates Your Tattoos

If you've been planning to buy an Apple Watch, but you've got a tattoo right where the back of the watch would rest on your wrist, you may want to think twice: dark tattoos can cause it to malfunction.

This is because it detects (for security and other reasons) when it is being worn by measuring light absorption through the skin. A dark tattoo can confuse the Watch into believing it has been removed from your person.

Quite how such an elementary and predictable issue made it past QC in Cupertino we may never know, though perhaps Bendgate was an early sign that their standards have taken a back seat.

Remember when LIVE high speed car chases were the hottest thing out there? Those were the viral videos of the 90's. I knew people who paid to have alerts sent to their beepers or cellphones. I remember working in offices that ground to a halt while everyone gathered around a TV in the break room hoping for an exciting conclusion.

It was even better than Jerry Springer.

Google to Fight Patent Trolls Preemptively
New Patent Marketplace in the Works

Google is sick to death of endless patent warfare in the tech industry, and they want to try something new: getting to the good patents first.

For patent holders seeking to sell, the marketplace can be difficult, and often their best option is to sell to a Non Practicing Entity, a company that makes no products but wields patents aggressively. Or, in laymen's, patent trolls.

To try to help fix this situation, they intend to create a temporary marketplace where patent holders can propose selling their patents to Google and propose their price as well.

Google will then presumably buy the best patents in the group, and hopefully put them to good use rather than sitting on them like another troll.

Quite how well this program will succeed in its goal of keeping the company from more patent-related headaches in the future we may not know for a long time. At least it's an attempt to help fix the hopelessly dysfunctional patent system, if a bit self-serving at the same time.

Microsoft's Dystopian 'Work Everywhere' Future

Sometimes you have to wonder how many sleepless hours bent over an ashtray and a pile of Red Bull cans it takes for marketing to go so very, very wrong as it often does.

In this case, Microsoft attempted to promote their office productivity solutions that help you get work done from anywhere. And why not? Access and collaboration from anywhere is one of the benefits of the cloud and mobile.

Their particular way of expressing these benefits, however, took the form of juxtaposing a sales pitch for flexible work from anywhere with a set of grim statistics highlighting how the American worker is seeing his work life creep further into his private life.

Microsoft's Dystopian 'Work Everywhere' Future

Sometimes you have to wonder how many sleepless hours bent over an ashtray and a pile of Red Bull cans it takes for marketing to go so very, very wrong as it often does.

In this case, Microsoft attempted to promote their office productivity solutions that help you get work done from anywhere. And why not? Access and collaboration from anywhere is one of the benefits of the cloud and mobile.

Their particular way of expressing these benefits, however, took the form of juxtaposing a sales pitch for flexible work from anywhere with a set of grim statistics highlighting how the American worker is seeing his work life creep further into his private life.

Rather than recognize these as the harbingers of mass worker exploitation through the failure to accommodate the work-life balance with new technologies, the marketing team in Redmond decided these were perfect use cases for the product.

Work from the toilet, on a date, during a family outing, or from the tops or bottoms of America's greatest attractions and natural wonders! Who needs real vacations, healthy relationships, or time for an honest bowel movement in this fast paced world?

Microsoft - The Preferred Choice of the Proletariat!

Of course Microsoft can't be blamed for creating any of these trends directly, but they seem to have missed the memo about how happy and rested workers with free time make better workers, and voluntary enslavement to the machines meant to make our lives more convenient is ultimately self-defeating.___

Google+ Posts Are Now "In the News"

Google+ Posts by Pages can now show up on Google Search in the "In the News" section of Search results (whenever that section appears).  This only occurs if:

1) The Searcher is Signed-In to Their Google Account
2) They Follow the Brand on Google+
3) The Post is News (Duh)

Google has been showing Brand Tweets "In the News" since February of this year, so this is less specifically another encouragement for brands to use Google+ than a general move to incorporate social signals into Search results wherever possible.

Nonetheless, this should be taken as one more very good reason for news sharing brands to be active and build a following on Google+.

Mass Transit Startup Bridj the Uber for Buses?

A startup called Bridj is bringing a new type of bus service for commuting to the Washington, D.C. area beginning today.

The company provides a private but affordable bus service to places based on votes and data analysis of where users are and where they want to go, with a flat fee determined by demand.

Where Ubers and Lyfts have changed how millions of people use taxi, private car, and ridesharing service, Bridj wants to bring the same sort of "Smart Era" convenience to mass transit.

Would you benefit from such a service in your area?

Not Facebook But Not a Ghost Town
Google+ Is Alive and Well

+Mark Traphagen​​ once again puts to rest the ill informed (and often clickbait) opinions of journalists crying their periodic chorus of "Google+ is dead!" into the online aethers.

If you must share an article about this topic, let it be this one. Journalists will keep writing "Ghost Town" articles as long as they're rewarded with clicks and shares. Starved of our attention, and drowned out by voices of reason, they will lose interest in the game. Yes, much remains to be seen about the future of Google+, but none of it shall be settled by kabalistic interpretations of internal codenames or public usage.

It is a ghost town only if you don't use it, just like any social network.

More Woes for Facebook's Internet.org
Latin America Joins India in Net Neutrality Concerns

Internet.org is a Facebook promoted nonprofit whose stated goal is to help connect more people to the internet by making it more affordable for users in developing markets. What's not to like, right? It sounds like a winning idea: more people get online, which means more global internet users available for Facebook and other web companies to woo.

Recently, however, questions have been raised about how Internet.org sets about to achieve this goal, through a mechanism known in the wireless industry as Zero Rating. Put simply, some internet based apps, websites, and services are offered through toll free data that doesn't count against your data plan, to the exclusion of most others. For example, your carrier might offer Unlimited YouTube under your otherwise limited data... more »

More Woes for Facebook's Internet.org

It sounds like a winning idea: more people get online, which means more global internet users available for Facebook and other web companies to woo.

Recently, however, questions have been raised about how Internet.org sets about to achieve this goal, through a mechanism known in the wireless industry as Zero Rating. Put simply, some internet based apps, websites, and services are offered through toll free data that doesn't count against your data plan, to the exclusion of most others. For example, your carrier might offer Unlimited YouTube under your otherwise limited data plan as a perk.

Internet.org offers Facebook and a select assortment of other sites and services like Wikipedia and Bing Search (but not Google). They attempt to partner with carriers in developing markets where data plans are expensive to cover the cost of data use for these services directly. The user never pays for data as long as he stays within the Internet.org ecosystem but pays the second he goes outside of it.

Mark Zuckerberg has argued this is in keeping with Net Neutrality, which he and his company famously claim to support, because Internet.org doesn't block of throttle other sites or services. It's true it doesn't create fast lanes or slow lanes, as in the mainstream Net Neutrality debate, but it does create free lanes and paid lanes, which are actually much worse.

Again, Mark Zuckerberg argues, some internet is better than no internet, yet he clearly isn't leaping to offer to remove Facebook from its privileged place in the list of free apps that apparently all developing internet market users desperately need. An allusion to The Social Network regarding the value of Facebook for developing markets is inescapable here:

https://youtu.be/yE1fIn64pjI

In India the Internet.org effort is already collapsing, and now their efforts in Latin America face similar scrutiny regarding the wisdom of letting multinational corporations choose winners and losers under the guise of enlightened public policy.

In Facebook's defense, many companies have taken advantage of Zero Rating schemes to promote their services, including Google. Never before, however, has it been so blatantly concealed as a Philanthropic Effort. If Facebook truly wants to connect the world, let them launch drones or balloons, lay fiber, become a budget wireless carrier, or otherwise help more people connect to the entire internet and decide for themselves if Facebook is their social network of choice.

To quote former Republican Congressman Newt Gingrich, helping more people get online is a good thing, "But could we drop a little bit of the pious baloney?"___

Chrome OS Opens to New Cloud Providers

Fans of Google's Chrome OS have very little to complain about the platform: Chrome is fast, secure, intuitive, and most Chrome devices are extremely affordable.

They're also heavily focused on Google's Cloud, a fact resulting in no small frustration at times for users, who find themselves unable to use competing services like Skype.

One area where Chrome OS has been especially Google-Centric is in the 1st Class Integration of Google Drive into the native Files app.  While users of Windows and Mac have long had many cloud providers to choose from with 1st Class Integration into the file system once installed, Chrome has been friendly only to Google Drive (with other cloud providers available only through the browser).

Until now.  Box now joins Google Drive in offering full integration with the Chrome Files app, and no doubt others will follow.  This will help make Chrome a more appealing option for more users, and preempt any questions of anticompetitive behavior should Chome devices take over the market some day as Windows one did.

Is Facebook Really Ready to 'Kill' YouTube?

One man decided to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of YouTube by comparing the Decadal King of Streaming Video from Google to its brash but hungry young challenger Facebook.

His experience revealed a Facebook product much improved from its humble origins, but still lacking the polished performance and precision of its elder.

His point, and one worth considering, is that while Facebook won't take a decade to get where Google is now, they're not there yet. Nor will YouTube stand still in the meantime.

While Google may yet dread the impact Facebook's huge user base and multiscreen engagement may have on their own video baby, for now each offers compelling reasons to use them and compelling reasons not to commit solely to either one.

Google Stops Making Nexus 7

It had to happen eventually.  Google has discontinued the 2013 Nexus 7 tablet.  So if you were in the market to buy one or get a replacement, they will soon become more difficult to find in the wild.

While the 2012 Nexus 7 was the first real breakthrough tablet for the Android tablet market at a time when Kindle Fires were really threatening Google's ambitions to leap from phones to larger devices, it was really the 2013 edition which delivered on +Eric Schmidt​'s promise of a "tablet of the highest quality".  The Nexus 7 series also helped almost singlehandedly put ASUS on the tablet map.

Are you a Nexus 7 owner?  Do you think Google should release a new Nexus 7 soon, or is it time for them to move in other directions?___

eBay Sides with Google in Antitrust Inquiry

Is Google Shopping an eBay and Amazon competitor, or not? The answer to this question cuts to the heart of pending antitrust litigation.

If the answer is 'Yes', then Google is a minor player in online shopping in Europe, and they can't have harmed competition in the market.

As it happens, eBay's Chief Executive agrees with Google's argument on this point. One assumes he would know better than anyone else, so why then is there even a case under discussion?

While Microsoft before them may not have escaped the EU Regulators unscathed, Google's defense appears far stronger, especially in light of these considerations.
