How to Use Google Plus Ripples
One major lure of social media is its potential to make something fantastic that you created, go viral. While there’s no magic formula to produce the next viral sensation, we do have ways to learn about how our content socially spreads.
On Twitter, you can see the number of retweets.
On Facebook, you can count Likes and Shares.
And on Google Plus, it’s the ability to visualize how your content has spread and to see the names of people who spread that fantastic content. All with the help of Ripples.
Using words like Upload, Download and Install is a Scary Endeavor.
If you decide to be bold enough to regurgitate any of these words, here is how to do so without sounding like a complete idiot. There is nothing more horrifying than someone you love asking you to download them the pictures you took at a party them asking you to download the new version of iOS to their phone.Comments (
There is a reason that Facebook is free. It is because you are not a customer, you are a product.
Whenever Facebook makes a change and there is a glitch in the Matrix, historically everybody's stream becomes riddled with complaints. Whenever there is a privacy change, which is usually opt our vs. opt in, there is a slew of media chatter.
The issue here as image 1 points out is that you are not the Facebook customer, you are not paying for this service, you are the Facebook product.Comments (
MENLO PARK, CA (Via The Borowitz Report) May 18, 2012
On the eve of Facebook’s IPO, Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg published the following letter to potential investors:
Dear Potential Investor:
For years, you’ve wasted your time on Facebook. Now here’s your chance to waste your money on it, too.
Today is Facebook’s IPO, and I know what some of you are thinking. How will Facebook be any different from the dot-com bubble of the early 2000’s?
For one thing, those bad dot-com stocks were all speculation and hype, and weren’t based on real businesses. Facebook, on the other hand, is based on a solid foundation of angry birds and imaginary sheep.
Second, Facebook is the most successful social network in the world, enabling millions to share information of no interest with people they barely know.
Third, every time someone clicks on a Facebook ad, Facebook makes money. And while no one has ever done this on purpose, millions have done it by mistake while drunk. We totally stole this idea from iTunes.Comments (

Klik, the Facebook iOS Photo app that knows your friends and tags them for you.
KLIK, by Face.com is the new iOS photo application that uses Face.com's facial recognition software to analyze your pictures, as you take them and determine, based on your Facebook friends, exactly who they are with a scary degree of accuracy.
When you first install the application, try it out by using the front facing camera to scan your own face, like a scene from The Terminator, it will lock onto your face and give you a percentile of accuracy as to exactly who you are. You then confirm your identity. There on, when you use the Klik app to take photos it will make highly educated guesses as to who is in the photo and hover your friend's names over their face.
KLIK is a camera app that uses face recognition to let you quickly tag your friends in real-time & requires a Facebook account, and iOS 4.3 or above.
Fire up KLIK and watch as your friends' names instantly appear next to their faces before or after you snap a photo.
If KLIK doesn't recognize a face - snap a photo, tap "Tag Me" over unrecognized faces to pick a name, and then save the photo (no need to share).
The more photos you save, the better KLIK gets.
Best of all, KLIK is FREE.Comments (
This is what internet porn was in the 1990's
For those of you old enough to remember any of the following: a gopher site, WAIS, 127.0.0.1, Earthling, Netscape, Netcom, Compuserve, a BBS, or even AOL was, below is what was the precursor to what online porn was like.
Before DNS's or flash or even jpg images on a www were the original frontier of the internet was much different back in the 1990's than it is today. The inception of domain names other than IP addresses or flash movies and especially HTLM5 even existed, there were ASCII images.
These images were images that were constructed of ASCII characters, or for the most part keyboard characters. The equivalent of playboy centerfolds constructed of typewriter characters. In the last 20 years the internet has changed quite a bit to allow the transfer of jpg images and swf or flv or even mp4 images or better yet, youtube.
Consider this a flashback to what the equivalent of what porn was 20 years ago, on the internet.Comments (
