ISOOSI Research Engine3,476This week on the #ISOOSICHAT  we are excited to have special guest +Barry Schwartz from Search Engine Roundtable (SER). Barry will be joining our regular #ISOOSIChat panelists including +Ammon Johns +Bill Slawski and +Carlos Fernandes.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 subjeSearch Marketing Rumors, Myths and Truths2014-03-18 20:00:0061

Those 4 Girls1,026Welcome to +Those 4 Girls weekly show!!This week we are talking about Gender Roles - When Were They Defined  & How They Affect TodayWhen 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!!!+Nicholas Cardot  - 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.+Eli Fennell - 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 aGender Roles - When Were They Defined & How They Affect Us Today2014-03-13 18:00:0096

Eli Fennell65,652Moms 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.  +Nikol Murphy is the Owner and Founder of +Talking Moose Media, a company that broadcasts your conferences and meetings via social media.  She also runs the +Mom Complicated blog along with +Vanessa Law. +Leigh Powell Hines, 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.+allison carter 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   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:+Holiday Inn Washington DC-Central/White House  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.comEach week +Christine DeGraff & +Mia Voss  spotlight guests who share What's Your Story?

Eli Fennell65,652There 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.+Chris Jenkins 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.+Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales is an Authority Marketer & Brand Strategist at +SEOWiSE, 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.+Aaron Wood 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 Engine3,476+Mark Traphagen 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.+Carlos Fernandes President, ISOOSIGhost Town or Land of Opportunity - Google+2014-02-11 21:00:0095

Christine & Mia5,616Join +Christine & Mia and our January guest host +Craig Fifield to interview special guest +Eli Davidson this week.Wednesday, January 15th11:30am PST/12:30pm MST/1:30pm CST/2:30pm ESTMore 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 Cohen71,222METal 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 meetingsThis week, Tim Sanders, a New York Times bestselling author, public speaker, and former Yahoo! executive will be speaking about Creating the SaleThe 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 ideaThis 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.ENTERTAINMENTEnjoy 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.Battlefy started as a league management platform that catered to micro-organizers like college eSports clubs.

Jesse Wojdylo776,402Over 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 20:00:0055

Gary Matthews19,315Featured Engagers Forum!Social media at its best is a great conversation. The #FeaturedEngagersForum is a shared circle honoring people who, in my experience, practice and promote that art."Featured" means that if you’re in this circle, I'm inviting you to share a link to a favorite post of your own -- either recent or classic.Linking to a post is easy: Just click the small down-arrow at upper right. From the drop-down menu, choose “Link to post”: Copy the web address that pops up, and paste it into your comment.Please visit each other’s links. I certainly will! Please also visit each other’s profiles. I already have! All of you, in your own ways, have welcomed me to your engagement roundtable. My earnest hope is to return that favor by connecting you with others who will support you as you have supported me.This circle consists mostly of friends who interact with my non-circle posts in the form of plusses, comments, and reshares. Merely doing these things, however, won’t guarantee you a spot. Not doing them won't necessarily keep you out. To join this circle, you must join the conversation either by engaging directly, or by elevating the level of discourse in other ways. (For example, by sharing content that others might want to talk about.)==========================Some of my own recent posts:Make Your Own Animated GIFshttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/4DsG8Wtvs2UCircle Sharing on Ⓖⓞⓞⓖⓛⓔ  Ⓟⓛⓤⓢhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GaryMatthews/posts/bk8u3Rv8SzuIs Circle Sharing Really a Pyramid Scheme?Not if you manage shared circles my way! ≧◔◡◔≦ https://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/CV95E6zZGWrWhat Happens to Abandoned Facebook Photos?They become digital “unclaimed freight” -- and Facebook makes billionshttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/1UY88CnpfqbMy Favorite Superhero -- Lois Lane!https://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/gfpL8qx9cU6Introducing Full-Width Link ImagesGoogle Plus follows Facebook initiativehttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GaryMatthews/posts/aRNSNuoE22AGoogle Comments Unleashedby new full-width link formathttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/C4gvwkHDnGmUse ℱᗩﬡᙅᎩ ℱOﬡ☂ᔕ and ϟ℘ℯ¢ḯαł ℭнαґα¢☂εґṧhttps://plus.google.com/108266630755932287913/posts/8GXkDfzzzsTA Knoxville Springtime!https://plus.google.com/u/0/+GaryMatthews/posts/XoDn4t5QM6vWhy I'm Changing My Namefrom "Gary L.

In protest, I will end on this on a preposition by and by.

LANGUAGE VIGILANTE
by Craig Froehle

You might call me a "Grammar Nazi,"
But I want to set the record straight;
I am a language vigilante
And I didn't come here to debate.

I'm a walking encyclopedia
Of punctuation and language rules.
If you ever doubt my credentials,
Here's a long list of my former schools.

I have accounts on all the websites.
I intend to point out each misdeed.
Your sentences are abominations
And your spelling makes my eyes bleed.

If you don't want me to hassle you,
Then adopt a better attitude.
Start to love subject-verb agreement
and confusing who with whom is rude.

The art of using semicolons
Is a subtle one, I will admit.
But substituting "your" for "you're"
Is an egregious crime to commit.

And when you confuse which and that
Or mix up adjectives and adverbs.
Please know I speak the truth when I say
I'm not the only one it disturbs.

Oxford commas are not optional.
Don't let anyone tell you they are.
Hyphens and dashes are different;
That you don't know that is just bizarre.

Knowing where commas go near quotations,
Is a sign of a civilized mind.
If I don't yell about your four-dot
Ellipsis, know I am being kind.

When you see a comment with nothing
But asterisked words and silent rage,
You'll know that I have visited
Your blog, Twitter, or Facebook page.

But realize that my cause is just
And my goal is nothing too extreme.
I simply want an error-free Web.
Is that too optimistic a dream?___In protest, I will end on this on a preposition by and by.

Ironically I just watched this about three days ago. I was showing it to fellow fans of South Park and I had no idea we would give in to terrorist threats and ban it at the time.

I strongly encourage all people to watch this movie as an example of both great satire (the movie is, ironically, a great sendup of American Exceptionalism in a form any Stephen Colbert fan could appreciate) and as a demonstration of support for free artistic expression.

Google to Bring Full Android to Autos?

Android Auto, in its current form, allows you to bring parts of the Android experience to vehicles if you have an Android smartphone. Google wants to change that by as early as Android M with a full version of Android for vehicles.

I would be more excited about this if I didn't think I was years away at least from buying a car with built-in Android. Or any sort of Android for that matter.

Nonetheless, some companies are already experimenting with Android as a built-in OS. The open source nature of Android combined with its Google backing makes it an attractive experimental platform. Google will have a hard time winning the support of Big Auto, which like Big Cell Carriers prefers homegrown proprietary solutions to those consumers would choose wherever possible.

Android M to bring full infotainment systems to Android Auto

As it stands right now, Android Auto won't function without having an Android phone plugged into your cars dash. All apps are then ran on the phone. According to this report, Google is looking to skip the phone and bring a full Android powered infotainment system to cars in a year or so with the next major version of Android.

Google will have a hard time winning the support of Big Auto, which like Big Cell Carriers prefers homegrown proprietary solutions to those consumers would choose wherever possible.

Creating a "turnkey" solution to Android in the vehicle is one step to expand their partner base and put pressure on larger auto companies, while also presenting them an attractive money-saving value.

tl;Dr - Google is not proposing any sort of popup "warning" of sites that aren't HTTPS. What they're proposing is more of a passive indicator.

Another for the "journalists getting it wrong" files.

Slashdot ( http://tech.slashdot.org/story/14/12/17/2233236/google-proposes-to-warn-people-about-non-ssl-web-sites ) and the BBC ( http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-30505970 ) are reporting that Chromium developers are proposing to scare users off HTTP sites by popping up warnings whenever users visit non-HTTPS sites.

Except that we're not proposing that at all.  The BBC links to the actual proposal page ( https://www.chromium.org/Home/chromium-security/marking-http-as-non-secure ), which intentionally doesn't specify a UI treatment, and even the suggestions it makes (of using existing "broken HTTPS" UI) don't involve popups.

The distinction here is important, because actively popping up warnings in front of users is hugely different, and has different consequences, than providing some sort of passive indicator that a page does not offer data encryption.  The former would basically drive everyone away from the browsers that did it and convince the few who stayed that the warning in question were immaterial and should be ignored ("crying wolf").

This is somewhat akin to witnessing someone say they don't like a particular politician and then reporting that that person was yelling epithets about said politician and waving a gun.  The details matter.  Please get it right.  ___tl;Dr - Google is not proposing any sort of popup "warning" of sites that aren't HTTPS.

Confused by startup jargon? This should help you become a cash-positive SaaS crushing it in your space.

*Pretty funny: #Startup speak buzz-words dissected...*

Some samples:
"...SaaS — It loses money.

Pre-Money Valuation –> A number you made up.

Post-Money Valuation –> A number that you made up alongside your VC with the addition of some cash. Your burn rate is probably too high.

“I work in PR.” –> I am, in fact, in possession of several journalists’ email addresses."

Of course, Eric Schmidt can't be expected to know how every piece of technology or line of code from his company functions, but this is a case where it would have been best to remain silent and be thought a fool than to have spoken and removed all doubt.___

What?  How is this not The Onion?

“It has come to the attention of students that students of color, particularly Black students, who have suffered significant trauma over the past few weeks due to the Grand Jury decisions are not at all in a place to take their finals right now,” Della Kurzer-Zlotnick, an Oberlin student, wrote to her professor. “I am not among these students, and as a white, middle-class person, I have to privilege [sic] of being able to step away from these events and put enough energy into schoolwork and finals to assure that I will pass my classes.”

While I commend Miss Kurzer-Zlotnick for trying to be respectful to her fellow students of color, I simply cannot endorse the idea that events involving total strangers, just because they happen to involve people of the same skin color, is justification for slacking at school.  If you spent too much time beingan activi... more »

While I commend Miss Kurzer-Zlotnick for trying to be respectful to her fellow students of color, I simply cannot endorse the idea that events involving total strangers, just because they happen to involve people of the same skin color, is justification for slacking at school.  If you spent too much time being an activist for the issue to get your studying done, then I'd venture you aren't that committed to your education, without which you're less likely to have any actual power to change anything or help anyone for the better.

I didn't get to use the Iraq War as justification for not preparing for college exams (which, to be clear, I did prepare for), and while I would have loved to march on Washington with antiwar activists, my education came first.  And I was draft age, so I had every good argument to feel personally concerned about it.

I don't care what current events are going on in the world, if they don't personally involve you or a loved one, they are not a justification to fail your college classes.

Furthermore, this demand for special treatment based on the coincidence-of-birth of sharing a similar skin color to a victim of alleged police brutality undermines the legitimate concerns millions of people feel about institutionalized racism.  There is real racism in the world, but expecting college students to pass their exams regardless of current news events is hardly an example of that.

Google Retiring Freebase

Google's Freebase, once billed as a "Wikipedia for Structured Data", will be retiring next year and working to transfer their data to Wikidata.

This was probably a very difficult decision in many ways. Nonetheless, I applaud their decision and wish the Wikidata community all the best as the new stewards of this data.

#Freebase #Wikidata #KnowledgeBase

When we publicly launched Freebase back in 2007, we thought of it as a "Wikipedia for structured data." So it shouldn't be surprising that we've been closely watching the Wikimedia Foundation's project Wikidata[1] since it launched about two years ago. We believe strongly in a robust community-driven effort to collect and curate structured knowledge about the world, but we now think we can serve that goal best by supporting Wikidata -- they’re growing fast, have an active community, and are better-suited to lead an open collaborative knowledge base.

So we've decided to help transfer the data in Freebase to Wikidata, and in mid-2015 we’ll wind down the Freebase service as a standalone project. Freebase has also supported developer access to the data, so before we retire it, we’ll launch a new API for entity search powered by Google's Knowledge Graph.

Loading Freebase into Wikidata as-is wouldn't meet the Wikidata community's guidelines for citation and sourcing of facts -- while a significant portion of the facts in Freebase came from Wikipedia itself, those facts were attributed to Wikipedia and not the actual original non-Wikipedia sources. So we’ll be launching a tool for Wikidata community members to match Freebase assertions to potential citations from either Google Search or our Knowledge Vault[2], so these individual facts can then be properly loaded to Wikidata. 

We believe this is the best first step we can take toward becoming a constructive participant in the Wikidata community, but we’ll look to continually evolve our role to support the goal of a comprehensive open database of common knowledge that anyone can use.

Here are the important dates to know:

Before the end of March 2015
- We’ll launch a Wikidata import review tool
- We’ll announce a transition plan for the Freebase Search API & Suggest Widget to a Knowledge Graph-based solution

March 31, 2015
- Freebase as a service will become read-only
- The website will no longer accept edits 
- We’ll retire the MQL write API

June 30, 2015
- We’ll retire the Freebase website and APIs[3]
- The last Freebase data dump will remain available, but developers should check out the Wikidata dump[4]

There needs to be an easy way to get back to the Stream.  As easily as that Post page slides in, it needs to slide back out with a single click and return me to where I was in the Stream.  No, clicking the back button on the browser is NOT a satisfactory solution, and requires the user to click all the way on the opposite side of the screen from the Notification Tray.  A simple "Back Button" right there in the Notification tray itself, which brings me right back to where I was in the Stream, would be great.

The current implementation is ridiculously inefficient for that reason.___

As loathe as I am to admit this, I agree with this ruling.  It's unlikely Apple meant to cause consumer harm, and if the harm had been widespread, surely more victims would have come forward to testify.

In addition, Apple wasn't responsible for the insistence by music labels at the time on MP3 download services using DRM on their music.

Gagnam Style and the 'Year 2038 Problem'

However, YouTube isn't the only system potentially vulnerable to this, and in fact eventually any 32-bit computing system will run up against this.  More specifically, Unix based systems count time in seconds starting from January 1st, 1970, and will reach their maximum count of  2,147,483,647 seconds on January 19th, 2038.  What happens then?  Maybe nothing, or maybe computer systems running on this system will start failing or wiping themselves.

Those who remember the Y2K Bug will see the similarity: a shortsighted use of 2-digit years resulted in millions of systems needing to be updated to a 4-digit date system to avoid issues when the calendar rolled over to the new century.

Of course, awareness of the Y2K issue was limited until a matter of mere years before it hit, and nearly all potential problems (some of which were overblown to begin with) were thus prevented.  In this case, we have almost a quarter of a century to fix the problem, and if Google could fix it as quickly as they did, it is fair to say we won't get caught off guard by this on any massive scale.  So there is certainly no need to panic.

On second thought... go ahead and panic.  A bit of panic now and again is good for the soul, but once you've got that out of your system, Keep Calm, and Carry on.  Nothing to See Here.

Instagram ISN'T Bigger Than Twitter... Entirely

You can't make a fair comparison of social networks as if they all did the same things, worked the same ways, or had the same types of users.  If all else was equal then we could indeed state as an absolute fact that, "Instagram is bigger than Twitter."

Alas, all else is not equal.  Instagram is a smash for certain types of users, and Twitter likewise is a smash with others, and the two are often very different types.  Journalists, for example, heart Twitter far more than Instagram and for obvious reasons.  Teenagers, on the other hand, often prefer Instagram, which is morevis... more »

Looking beyond user count, Twitter content tends to get much greater reach, and Twitter users on the whole tend to be more prolific, with Tweets outnumbering Grams by a considerable margin.  Tweets can also reach beyond Twitter and the Twitter user base, and in fact Twitter gets hundreds of millions of non-logged-in visitors, an accomplishment Instagram could hardly boast (their meager web presence doesn't even properly support hashtags).

So, in one sense, Monthly Users, Instagram is bigger than Twitter, but in nearly every other regard Twitter is bigger, and in the end the users and use cases are far from completely overlapping.

Similar considerations can and should apply when comparing any two social networks.  Rarely do two social  networks so clearly and completely overlap that they are locked in mortal battle with each other, when one looks closely enough.

We know notifications are an important way for you to remain connected to the content and people you are interested in on Google+. To this end, we are adding a dedicated view of notifications to the Google+ desktop site. 

You can now browse notifications by clicking on the bell at the top right corner of the Google+ page. The new tray is a simple list that allows you to quickly scan all notifications and view the relevant content with a single click.

Looking for just your unread notifications? Just click on the filter on top and select “Unread notifications”.

In another surprising move from Satya Nadella's Microsoft, the company has announced Microsoft License Mobility.  If a customer has a support contract for Microsoft Windows apps, they can (if they choose) move some of those apps into Google's cloud.

Microsoft and Google are fierce cloud rivals, and traditionally the company has used its market share in some areas like Operating Systems and the cloud to boost adoption of the others.  More recently, however, Microsoft has been getting more aggressive in competing on their opponent's turf, and allowing Google Cloud customers to keep using their Windows apps keeps them paying licensing fees and keeps them in the Microsoft ecosystem.

Google News is No More in Spain

Spain's new laws on ancillary copyright, sometimes called a "Google Tax", would require Google and other services that display even small snippets of a linked-to article to pay publishers. Unlike Germany, where a similar tax failed spectacularly after publisher traffic fell over 40%, the Spanish law would not allow publishers to choose whether or not to enforce this.

So, Google is doing what they have to: in a matter of days they will be shutting down their Spanish operation of Google News entirely.

How well this actually works to bring in new revenue for publishers, versus how much this results in a linkless Spain where publisher traffic collapses cataclysmically, remains to be seen, though recent history suggests the latter rather than the former.

Forget the usual Twitter tips. This study by +Stone Temple Consulting​​ analyzed millions of Tweets and the factors which influence engagement, controlling for authority.

Some of their conclusions may surprise you, while others may confirm what you've always suspected but could never really prove.

LIVE: Twitter Engagement Unmasked - Study of 4 Million Tweets

See it NOW at http://stonet.co/TwitterStudySTC

Just Published: Our major study, months in the making, of over 4 million tweets.

We analyzed these tweets to see what drove retweets and favorites. Unlike previous Twitter studies, not only was our sample much larger, but we segmented the tweets in new ways, including by Followerwonk Social Authority rating (thanks +Moz!).

Here are just some of our findings (be sure to read the complete study to get the full picture!)

1. We all know that including media (images or video) in your posts is critical to engagement. This is true on every platform. How much? On Twitter, it increases your rate of Retweets of Favorites between 4 to 12 times!
 
2. Our data breaks the myth that Time of Day is an important factor on Twitter. There is no evidence at all to support that.
 
3. Hashtags and inclusion of links can be a small positive for most people, but not so much that you should go far out of your way to add them.
 
4. Because we used such a large sample size, one of the things we were able to do was break out each metric by social authority.  Whether or not some factors are positive for engagement varies with social authority.  For example, including hashtags appears to be a negative for high authority profiles!
 
We also evaluated many other factors in our study, so please check out the full post to see the rest!

Is Instagram Right for Your Business?

+Instagram announced that they passed 300mn monthly active users, making them "bigger than Twitter" (http://goo.gl/nNP0Rw).  There is now more reason than ever for your business to have an Instagram marketing strategy.  There also reasons not to use Instagram.

In the following article, I discuss some of the factors to consider when deciding whether to invest in Instagram for your business, as well as some basic tips and tools for improving the effectiveness of your efforts.

Instagram is big, there is no question of that, but whether and how to use it for business will depend on a lot of factors.

The Future of Offices is Paperless

An office in the Netherlands has taken a bold step into the future by going entirely paperless.  Electronic communication and data replace the need to use paper for those things (they even refuse to receive paper mail), the employees work in gardens, and even the toilets are paperless (don't worry, they solve the same problem without paper, so it's safe to shake hands with them).

Would you like to work in a paperless office?

Nice. Useless for me, but very enlightened.

For many people, gender identity is more complex than just "male" or "female."  Starting today, I'm proud to announce that Google+ will support an infinite number of ways to express gender identity, by giving you the option to customize the way your gender is represented on your profile. 

Previously, we provided options for “Male,” “Female,” and “Other,” to encompass both those who don't fit into the traditional gender labels and those who don't want to declare their gender to the world at large. Now, the gender field on your profile will contain four entries, “Male,” “Female,” “Decline to state,” and “Custom.”  When “Custom” is selected, a freeform text field and a pronoun field will appear. You can still limit who can see your gender, just like you can now. We’ll be rolling this feature out for all users over the next few days.

Many thanks to the people and groups who gave us advice on the best ways to do this. Your input has been really valuable to us, and we hope you like the result!___Nice. Useless for me, but very enlightened.

I'm only sharing this to highlight how sensationalism can masquerade as some logical argument, even while being completely illogical.

At first, the article is on track, comparing Facebook's new Post Search ability to Google+'s Search.  I'm somewhat skeptical of the importance of even this comparison, as I rather doubt Social Search is a "killer feature" for too many users of either network, or that Facebook Search getting better means G+ users will abandon it for Facebook.

As Social Search revolves around People and Connections, and not just content, you'd have to share the same People and Connections on both networks.  If someone you Follow on Google+ only posted something there, it would be futile to Search for it on Facebook, and vice versa.

Even assuming Social Search was a "Battleground" that will play a big role in the battle between Facebook and Google Plus, which as it stands I doubt, the article then veers away into sheer illogic by suggesting this could be a threat in itself to Google's core Search business, as opposed to just Google+.

Putting aside that we heard this theory with Graph Search and it never happened, as one failure does not necessitate future failures, the two types of Search in this case are orthogonal, i.e. they don't really overlap.  If you're just looking for a Lemon Merengue recipe, you could Search for it on Facebook, but whether you find anything (in its present form) would depend on whether one of your connections ever posted a recipe for Lemon Merengue.  If they didn't, you're right back at Google, though in reality you probably went there first.

If, on the other hand, you're Searching for a Lemon Merengue recipe you specifically remember one of your connections posting last year, then Searching for that on Google is liable to be futile.  Even if you found the same recipe, how would you be sure of that?

It is hard to see too many situations where one type of Search can equally solve the problems the other type solves.  People might be doing Searches on Google and Facebook, but doing one won't necessarily reduce doing the other, rather they're likely to be additive: people simply Search more, rather than reducing their Searches on one place to Search more from the other.

Even if Facebook added the ability to Search all Public Posts, as Google+ can do, it is still hard to see how this would threaten Google Search.  Google's Search "Mission" is to get you to the information that answers your question, based on content.  Facebook's Search "Mission", on the other hand, is certainly to get you to the people you wanted to find.  While content may be a factor in the latter, and Source/Person may be a factor in the former (even though we know there is no AuthorRank outside of in-depth results), the focus is to some degree diametrically opposed.

Many different types of "Search Engines" exist, and many others have existed only to fail for various reasons.  It is not the case that simply offering "Search" makes you a "Google Challenger", anymore than simply being "Social" makes you a "Facebook Challenger".

Future developments in Facebook Search may force a reconsideration of these points, but as of yet the two can coexist without in any way putting a dent in each other.___

Facebook Gets Post Searching

...but it isn't what we enjoy on Google+, where we can Search the content of any public post, or any post whose privacy settings permit us access otherwise.

This new Facebook update only lets you Search posts from you, your Followers, and posts shared with them by others.  So, this is step forward for Facebook, but still a far cry from a true "Social Search Engine".

News: Updates to Facebook Search

Facebook Graph Search has long been designed to help you find people, places, and information based on human connections.

Now it has finally allowed you to find Facebook posts as well.

With a quick search, you can get back to a fun video from your graduation, a news article you’ve been meaning to read, or photos from your friend’s wedding last summer.

If you want to search using phrases like “My friends who live in New York,” you still can.

Today’s updates were designed for mobile as well — they’ll be available on Facebook for iPhone in addition to desktop in US English this week.

For more information, visit search.fb.com.

Why Google Didn't Replace Gmail with Inbox

Inbox by Gmail is Google's exciting new, possibly-revolutionary approach to email, a welcome attempt to bring the "classic email inbox" up to the standards we've come to expect from software in the modern era: leaner, smarter, better designed.

Gmail was, in its time, also a revolution, bringing some of Google's algorithmic smarts (i.e. better spam filtering, highlighting of priority messages, etc...), the first true modern web app, and a ton of storage space for the time (when anything over 2-3mb usually exceeded the limits of a free email account).

Now, however, much has changed, both in how people use email and in the power and sophistication of modern software and data science, and Inbox is meant to be the champion of the new way of organizing and managing email.

Now, however, much has changed, both in how people use email and in the power and sophistication of modern software and data science, and Inbox is meant to be the champion of the new way of organizing and managing email.

So, why not simply transform Gmail into Inbox?  As the largest email service in the world, this would have won more users faster, so why build it out as separate?

One reason, at least, was apparently an internal rebellion by Googlers, who receive an average of some 450 emails a day and who can and do find uses for every single use case that Inbox would deprecate, however obscure.

The average person does not receive 450 emails a day, more like a handful, many of which are promotions, financial statements, etc...  It is for that unusual type, of which Googlers are merely an embodiment (and if they rebelled, what would any similar types of heavy email users have felt?), that Gmail will survive in something resembling its current form, at least for now, while for the rest of us, Inbox will usually be the simpler, better option.

Identity in Chaos: On Ink and Digital Ink Stains

In today's edition of +David Amerland's Sunday Read(http://goo.gl/wMFPwr), +David Amerland relates the issue of Identity with the various perceptions and manifestations of tattoo art, from Maori's to criminals to the Millennial normalization of tattoos in some Western Nations.  He raises interesting considerations, and I highly recommend reading it.

However, I felt the author fell somewhat short in relating this to Digital Identity.  As the author of Google Semantic Search (http://goo.gl/uEegBU), another highly recommended read, he knows his stuff when it comes to how Search Engines and their Social Network Siblings are getting better all the time at profiling us, building for their own records a "shadow identity" of us as users.

Identity in Chaos: On Ink and Digital Ink Stains

However, I felt the author fell somewhat short in relating this to Digital Identity.  As the author of Google Semantic Search (http://goo.gl/uEegBU), another highly recommended read, he knows his stuff when it comes to how Search Engines and their Social Network Siblings are getting better all the time at profiling us, building for their own records a "shadow identity" of us as users.

In day to day life, however, we find that people are not generally concerned if Facebook knows they Like (or once Liked) Green Day or that Google has figured out they own a Jaguar and Personalizes their Search Results to emphasize the car instead of the animal, or that Target knows your teenage daughter is pregnant before you.

Yet, people are concerned for their digital identities more and more for other reasons.  By now everyone is quite aware that people can lose jobs over what they post online, and that courts and law enforcement may consider evidence of your internet activity against you.  Even at the subtler level, very few people would ever want to post a naked selfie of themselves online, anywhere, regardless of any promised privacy settings.  It isn't the Googles of the world people worry about: it's the people and institutions that more immediately control their destinies.

The problem with the Gospel of Building a Digital Identity, as I like to call it, is that it preaches an ideal that we can and must take steps to control our Digital Destiny.  Insofar as the tools exist and thus beg to be used to your best advantage, this is true.  The Gospel then contradicts itself by telling you to "Be Yourself", which in truth is the very thing most likely to get you in trouble.

After all, "Yourself" is likely a very broad and conditional entity.  It wears many hats.  One moment it is the father, biting his tongue to keep from swearing in front of his young child, even though he swears like a sailor in front of his friends.  Another it is the Teacher, opening young minds to learning.  For at least a few minutes a day, its main motivation is to pass bodily wastes, a part of ourselves even most exhibitionists don't want on the internet.  At the end of the day it is the husband, making love quietly to his wife to keep from waking the newborn.

For approximately one-third of our lives, our Identity is split between the Sleeper and the Dreamer, who overlap to the point it is not always clear when we are "just sleeping" and when we are sleeping and dreaming at the same moment.

This Identity is more secretive than any other for most people, for its language is either Abyss or Madness, darkness and a mere passing of time unconsciously, or fantasies that would be delusional at any other time in our lives.  In sleep, we are variously Dead or Insane, and yet this is generally accepted as normal.

Thus, the first point to speak to is that there is such a thing as a Digital Identity, which there is, but this is not the "True Identity" of anyone, and if it is, then that must be the saddest, most one-dimensional of souls on the planet.  Even Internet Addicts (and those who manage to pass our addiction off as work and make money on it) have more going on than all the crawler bots and click trackers ever made could come close to knowing.

Thus, our Digital Identity is at best a relational identity, and still contextual; your internet activity at work likely differs from that when you're on your personal devices on personal time.  It is even more contextual than that, however: it is based on relationships that are slices of our mental and emotional worlds, like what products we searched for on the internet, or whose emails in our Contact List match up with emails in other Contact Lists to figure out who we might want to connect online with.

For granted, with relatively little data a Search Engine or Social Network can form a Commercial Model of you: your favorite sports teams, the shows you like to watch, etc...  The more you input, the more the pattern of this Shadow Identity starts to resemble our own patterns of what we put online, and how we frame that, assuming we don't deliberately input garbage data.  To the extent that we naturally input garbage data even unknowingly, this will always cloud the pattern match to at least some degree.

Yet for all the sensors in any smartphone, or trackers on any web page, it still captures but a trickle of the great stream of Identity.  The average person intuits this, and their concern is rather that people will misunderstand them than that they should worry about spying or targeted advertising.  Humanity instinctively rebels against the idea that our digital activities should be worn like a tattoo, something forever marking us a certain way.

Creating and maintaining a Digital Identity is a task most people actually don't want, never asked for, and wouldn't have the time, knowledge and skill set, or temperament to do.  They want to share a funny meme on Facebook without losing their jobs years later.  They want to express a political opinion without losing friends.  They want the tools, but not the consequences.

The question then becomes, to what degree is this reasonable?  Surely a successful businesswoman in her thirties now shouldn't be judged by a drunken college frat party photo from before she was wise enough to understand the risks.  Surely a man or woman who for many years has disavowed hatred and upheld the cause of equal rights shouldn't be forever labeled with a Scarlet R (for Racist) if in his younger days, before he evolved, he held and expressed hateful views.  What of the woman looking for a job who struggles with depression, whose social media footprint is now being analyzed by the company she has just applied at, and will be flagged and rejected because her struggle can be statistically mapped by their algorithms, sending her spiraling back down into an even worse darkness?

Remember, too, that this Digital Tattoo is never really of our choosing.  Try though some might to craft the Perfect Digital Identity for precise perception and branding, they can and will lose control of this.  Even amongst their most loyal followers, there will be opinions and perceptions of them beyond if not contrary to what they project.  They may be seen as dry, or witty, or wordy, or snarky, or charming, or inciteful, according to the proportions they manifest these traits.

Instead of something chosen, like most tattoos, or forced upon us to define us by a narrow label as with the tattoos of the Holocaust Victims, the Digital Identity starts to grow of its own unbidden, patchwork-like, a spot here and there, spreading out and even redesigning itself, until all of our true nakedness is covered by a lifeless chimera, a "False Soul".  No longer can anyone see who we are beneath it, if we allow it to define us.

Is there another, better way?  There is, indeed, but technology can't yet replicate it.  It is called "Getting to Know Someone Well".  It is the solution to nearly every misperception, every narrow view you have of someone based on the slice you see.  It is also, unfortunately, the least scalable solution.  We can only get to know so many people well, even if the lives of all internet users were Open Books.

Another solution is "Benefit of the Doubt".  This would mean, for example, not assuming someone who expresses support for the Republican Party (in the U.S.) on their Facebook account is therefore automatically a Right Wing racist who wants to see all women barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen.

Unfortunately, this runs afoul too easy of our Fight or Flight instincts, which nature designed to react quickly to a possible threat.  Perhaps you're simply a person who believes in Limited Government and Fiscal Responsibility, but you might be a type more threatening to the other side of the spectrum: the aforementioned stereotypical Right Winger.  For many people, the safest reaction will be to Unfriend you, perhaps even in real life, though they may have known until the point you posted it that you were Republican already as a mere matter of fact which never played any role in your relationship.

So, the problem remains.  Hardly one person on Earth actually wanted a Digital Identity until convenience and necessity (and the magical buzzword of "innovation") heaped one upon their shoulders.  Most people simply want to use the internet, and don't want to know the ins-and-outs of how and why it works, yet not knowing this is now extremely perilous (except for those with no access, of course).

No volume of "How To" books, +Haiku Deck's, Internet Marketing Blogs, or Magical Pixie dust is going to turn our entire population into Digital Identity Savants before whole generations of them have littered the internet with ink stains that can later be used against them in the court of public opinion.  Many of these traces will never be possible to destroy permanently, Right To Be Forgotten notwithstanding, and the quantity of traces will only exponentially increase.

Even being a "Pro" is no certain safeguard, for the slightest misspoken or ill considered phrase or image or share might one day come back to haunt you.  It may have seemed harmless, or safely obscure, at the time it was done, and may indeed be harmful only when placed in a context entirely removed from its actual context, but nonetheless, the risk is there and in many ways only increases with promiscuity.  Indeed, one sees with the celebrities that the greater their public "transparency" , the more of their remaining secrets the paparazzi want to know, and no one crashes harder than a celebrity whose dark secret is exposed.

I normally like to end on a positive note, but as I've admitted, there are no realistic solutions I can perceive.  Unplugging will not always be an option for everyone, and may even be more harmful than using it badly.  To unplug increasingly means losing not just websites, but contact with friends and family and colleagues, invaluable services like Search and Email, even access to valuable tools for business and education.

It seems inevitable that the Hungry Data Beasts demand sacrifice, and that that sacrifice is any ability we once had to keep most parts of our Identity to within their proper contexts and relationships.  If there is hope in such an unstoppable future, which is at best delayed by escaping to DuckDuckGo, or Diaspora, or Snapchat, Whisper, or Secret, it is in a version of John Oliver's #MutuallyAssuredHumiliation  (http://goo.gl/BRrQ4Y).

While John Oliver's version involved a mass effort to deliberately post your most embarrassing picture online on the theory that if everyone did it, no one could use it against any other person, something of a similar stalemate may eventually come to be: when we have all left enough ammunition against us behind on the internet that it will become some "new norm" to have some publicly known blemishes.

Inbox To Allow Unsending Emails

Google's new email app, Inbox by Gmail, which is still Invite only, will apparently add the ability to unsend emails.

A similar ability has existed in Gmail for some time courtesy of a Gmail "Lab", an experimental feature users can activate, but has never been a default feature. It allows a brief period to unsend an email, a matter of seconds but maybe just enough to unsend one sent through an accidental click.

It isn't certain if Inbox's version will work this way. It's unlikely to work the way unsending emails worked in the early days of AOL between AOL users, where until your recipient opened it you could unsend it.

This raises questions about the degree to which it is acceptable or realistic to "take something back". However, as already mentioned, many prematurely sent emails result from... more »

Until we see how it works, we can only speculate.

I think this is extremely relevant for this Community.

Standards of Social Media Disclosure Are Increasing

The FTC settled a case with Deutsche LA, an advertising company, over "deceptive" Tweets.  If this was just a case of an advertising company engaging in deceptive practices, it would be sadly unremarkable.

However, this case raises significant implications about using your "social media clout" to bolster your clients' marketing campaign.  In theory, this ruling could apply even if you don't do paid advertising for a client, if your service is organic social media.  Employees of Deutsche LA sent out Tweets about the new client without mentioning their business relationship.

Realistically, some of these employees may not have considered their actions marketing.  In the same way we might share something interesting at work, some of them were probably just sharing exciting stuff.  They may even have withheld the client relationship thinking it was a good idea.

In this case, the company handled marketing for the Sony Playstation Vita (lest you think the FTC will only go after you for succeeding), so it is likely many employees, who received a company-wide email about it, were legitimately excited to be serving a brand many of them no doubt owned personally.

The FTC's decision suggests that knowingly promoting a brand you handle as a client on social media, without some minimal disclosure (a generic advertising hashtag is, apparently, sufficient, so we might imagine many slight forms of acknowledgement are acceptable) , may be a violation of the law that could result in penalties for your company.

This no doubt casts many social media marketing strategies revolving around social "influencers" in doubt. especially in cases where the influencer is hired by the marketing company on a theory akin to the darkest form of Native Advertising: where the content effectively serves as an advertisement but makes no indication of such.

It also suggests that using your own employees to promote the brand on social media may be more complex than some marketing strategists believe.  Promoting their own employers may be fine, and it may even be acceptable to promote brands you carry or serve, unless those brands are paying your company to do so.

Even the most harmlessly intended promotion of the client by employees, in fact, may be grounds for a fine.

Realistically, this will probably not be enforced statutorily but rather on a case-by-case basis, but the implications for companies working with large paying clients in any capacity are staggering.

Does this "Tag 3 Friends Who Fit This Generic, Humorous Meme" stuff ever actually work on social media? Anyone ever actually gained any value doing this for a client?

It's slightly embarrassing to have almost 200 Instagram followers having only ever posted 3 images.

Bezos probably wasn't referring to Ballmer when he said this, but it is nice to know that Ballmer does have a legacy: the ultimate excuse for failure, as long as you didn't bet the company on it.

This.

Ron Wyden continues to be basically the most technologically-clueful member of the legislative branch.

This was an absolutely fascinating read, without being inaccessible to non-developers despite the article being ostensibly about "UI Trends". A simpler way of putting it would be: "This is how the design of Chinese apps are different from American (read: Western in general) apps."

It is especially interesting to see that China has actually figured out how to get people using QR codes, those codes we keep being promised will be super important but which almost no one ever scans and, in fact, often require specialized apps just to be able to scan, apps which aren't consumer favorites or preinstalled on their OS.

Apple Admits iPods Forcefully Removed Music

Apple is on trial for designing iPods to delete music from rival services.  This occurred between 2007 and 2009, and was ostensibly about "security", though a comment by Steve Jobs suggests the motive was more about removing potentially "pirated" songs.

Worse, they admit not making it all clear to the user what would happen, over an ostensible concern that this would "confuse" their users.

While both of these arguments may or may not have been primary concerns, the end result was undoubtedly anticompetitive and advantaged Apple significantly as the dominant music download provider at the time.

Did you own an iPod during this period?  Did it delete any of your songs, if so?
