Using Google+ and Pinterest Search for Long-Term Impact

Good social media advice from Brian Honigman on The Next Web about the long tail of social media posts.

“While there are many benefits to consistently strong content, one less obvious benefit is the continuing compounding success of old posts. Most people think that once a post is a day old it is pretty much dead, and that after a week it might as well never have happened. However, things online last forever and none of these posts actually disappear.”

ThinkUp Helps the Social Network User See the Online Self

ThinkUp analyzes your social media profile – not only how many tweets, but behavioral information.  How often you thank people, what posts you tend to retweet – really useful in terms of navigating social networks.

“Every morning the service delivers an email packed with information, and in its weighty thoroughness, it reminds you that what you do on Twitter and Facebook can change your life, and other people’s lives, in important, sometimes unforeseen ways.”

Rejoice: Tomorrow’s Tech Will Probably Stop Nagging Us | WIRED

Conceptually, the goal has always been to make technology invisible.  To many of us it is, though when we use the phrase “invisible” it means we just don’t notice it.  If we are speaking with somebody on a cell phone, we don’t notice the phone.  We think about the content, what we are saying, and the person we are speaking to.  The phone is still in our hand, unnoticed, but visible (unless the phone isn’t working properly!)

In the new IoT era, the technology will be more embedded, more functional – yet truly invisible.  This story from Wired is very accurate.

“How does one create an environment of “invisible technology”? Start by gaining a more complete understanding of all the facets that enable a product or service to operate. Break down any complexity by mapping each conversation that needs to take place between people and machines for the service to work well.”
